Written Answers — Department for Education: Universities: Finance (17 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will publish the (a) scope, (b) timetable and (c) membership the review panel for the review of university funding and student financing announced by the Prime Minister in her speech to the Conservative Party Conference in October 2017.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is one of a number of examples? A place such as Anguilla or an industry such as farming has no sense of certainty about how or whether the Government will replace funding that will be lost after—or if—we leave the European Union. Does he think that the Government are not being clear about the future because they have not yet worked it out, or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: UK Internal Market (16 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: Thank you, Mr Speaker, that is the nicest thing anyone is likely to say to me today. The Chancellor rightly extols the benefits of the UK single market, but is not the rank hypocrisy of the Government exposed by listening to the comments of the chief executive of Airbus last night that leaving the European single market would be hugely damaging to the UK economy? We do not have to pick and...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Office for Students (15 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the timetable is to fill the vacancy on the board of the Office for Students.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Office for Students (15 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many candidates interviewed for appointment to the Board of the Office for Students scored more highly at interview than Toby Young.

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: I am grateful to the Health Secretary for giving way. The simple fact is that if we want more care in the community, the Government have to stop slashing social care budgets. If we want to stop people appearing at hospital with preventable conditions, we need to stop cutting public health funding. The Government do not have an economic record to be proud of, but even looking at the public...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel and Palestine: Two-State Solution (9 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: But surely the Minister must acknowledge that comments like those from the Israeli Government do not give the impression that they are serious about peace. Does he also agree that the calls by Hamas for acts of violence and rage against Israeli people in the wake of the relocation of the US embassy were wholly contemptible and should be thoroughly condemned by everyone in the House?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (9 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: Following ministerial appointments since the general election, can the Foreign Secretary provide some reassurance to the House that the Department for International Development has not become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Foreign Office and that aid will continue to be the primary focus of DFID?

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: The Minister keeps on referring to the importance of free and frictionless trade with the European Union, but is it not time for the Government to be a bit clearer with the public that, through our membership of the customs union, we have preferential trade agreements with a further 65 countries right across the world? This is not just about protecting trade with the EU; we also need to...

NHS Winter Crisis: Office for Students: Appointment (8 Jan 2018)

Wes Streeting: There is a fault line in politics, with those who want a modern democracy with people appointed on their merit rather than their mates on one side, and I am surprised that the Minister, who is meant to be a serious person, finds himself on the other side. I ask the Minister specifically about Mr Young’s comments in the past two to three years, which the Select Committee Chairman raised,...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (21 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: If there is an HR service, surely it could recognise trade unions for Members’ staff in the way described. I thank the Leader of the House for her work on this, but it cannot be right that it is easier to sanction a Member for disorderly conduct in the Chamber than to sanction them for disorderly, disreputable and disgraceful conduct outside of it, so can she press ahead on that? I also...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: National Lottery Funding: Charities (21 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: What steps her Department is taking to ensure that the level of National Lottery funding for charities is maintained.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: National Lottery Funding: Charities (21 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Merry Christmas to you, Mr Speaker, and to everyone else. I thank the Minister for her answer. Charities doing important work across the country depend on the money they are awarded by lottery distributors, but due to the fall last year and the expected fall next year of lottery income for good causes, distributors may not be able to meet their financial commitments. The Government have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Customs duties (20 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: rose—

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Londoners are absolutely sick and tired of the spectacle of Tory MPs crying crocodile tears in their local papers about police station closures, and then coming to the House to cheerlead the cuts that make them necessary, but perhaps that is why London Tory MPs are an endangered species. Is not what the Minister has announced today the worst of all worlds? He is asking people to pay more in...

Policing (19 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Get real!

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: One of the most frequent criticisms of this place is that politicians are unable to give straight answers to straight questions, so can I give the Prime Minister another opportunity to answer the questions from Streatham and from Penistone and Stocksbridge? Can she guarantee that, after we leave the European Union, there will be no attempt to water down the 48-hour limit on the working week,...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: Paragraph 49 of the agreement says very clearly: “In the absence of agreed solutions, the United Kingdom will maintain full alignment with those rules of the Internal Market and the Customs Union which, now or in the future, support North-South cooperation, the all-island economy and the protection of the 1998 Agreement.” In making that undertaking, can the Prime Minister provide...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Wes Streeting: I entirely agree with the points that the hon. Lady is making. It was interesting that this afternoon in the Treasury Committee, the Chancellor acknowledged that the cost to the UK of settling any outstanding debts with the European Union will be small beer compared with the costs if we do not get a good long-term trading relationship with the EU. There are two issues: the short-term cost and...
