Afghanistan - Statement (7 Sep 2021)

the Bishop of Durham: My Lords, sometimes very unexpected conversations occur. On my journey down from the north-east this morning, I found myself spending two hours talking with someone who had done seven tours of service in Afghanistan and nearly 10 years’ service in security.

the Bishop of Durham: My Lords, in its 2014 report Sense & Instability, City & Guilds made a wryly humorous and powerful case for much greater coherence, greater focus on building on success and greater attention to effective implementation in skills policy.

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 63 (15 Jul 2021)

It points out that 96% of institutions ask their students about their mental health but only 41% ask them about their general well-being. It also notes that...
