Ministerial Code (26 Apr 2021)

Wes Streeting: We all know that the delay in locking down the country in lockdown one, lockdown two and lockdown three led to a higher toll in both lives and livelihoods. What I do not think anyone expected was to read on the front page of the Daily Mail today that the Prime Minister had said: “Let the bodies pile high in their thousands.” The claim has been subsequently verified independently by other...

Education: End-of-Year Assessments 2021 (26 Apr 2021)

Wes Streeting: Like so many other aspects of the Government’s coronavirus response, the Department for Education’s handling of exams has been a total disaster. Schools are currently grappling with a whole series of challenges that could have been easily avoided if only the Department had planned ahead. Can we finally have the triumph of hope over experience, and the Government learn their lessons from...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (13 Apr 2021)

Wes Streeting: The hon. Gentleman makes a comparison between the Treasury’s response to the covid crisis and the Treasury’s response to the last financial crisis. I wonder, therefore, whether we ought to be blaming the enormous deficit and debt now on Conservative profligacy or whether we will finally accept that, in 2007-08, as now, the Treasury did exactly the right thing to prevent the economic...

Greensill Capital (13 Apr 2021)

Wes Streeting: The simple fact is that, again and again, Members from all parts of the House pleaded with the Chancellor to meet us to hear the plight of millions of people who were excluded from any Government support, and the Chancellor would never find the time for such a meeting; but a few texts from dodgy Dave, and Greensill has got 10 meetings and a ream of correspondence with senior Treasury...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (12 Apr 2021)

Wes Streeting: It is a privilege to be called to speak in this moving and at times light-hearted debate. I will pick up particularly on the light-hearted theme. As I have listened to the speeches from across the House this afternoon, I have wondered what the late Duke of Edinburgh would have made of this afternoon’s event, given his view of MPs, which, rather giving the game away, was cited by my right...

Outer London Congestion Charge — [Ms Christina Rees in the Chair] (23 Mar 2021)

Wes Streeting: It is a pleasure for me to serve under your chairship for the first time, Ms Rees, and I am grateful to the Chairman of Ways and Means for enabling my participation in this important debate this afternoon.

Sri Lanka (18 Mar 2021)

Wes Streeting: I, too, draw Members’ attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Like the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers), this time last year, just as the seriousness of the pandemic had become clear in our country and days before formal lockdown was introduced, I was in Geneva, lobbying delegations and missions to the UN Human Rights Council about...

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

Wes Streeting: It is a privilege to speak in this important debate. It is a debate that people in England and right across the UK need to start paying greater attention to, because while I fully respect that the future of Scotland is one to be determined by the Scottish people—indeed, the Labour party’s position on Scottish independence and the Union is one that is determined and led by the Scottish...

Scotland: General Election and Constitutional Future (17 Mar 2021)

Wes Streeting: Indeed—and that brings me to education, which is my hon. Friend’s passion, and mine. The number of teachers in Scotland is down by 1,700 since 2007; the promise to cap class sizes is broken; spending per pupil is down; and on the Scottish Government’s central challenge—to close the attainment gap—they are failing. Indeed, the First Minister herself said: “Let me be clear—I want...
