School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: My hon. Friend chairs the all-party parliamentary group on social mobility, so he will know that many of the vital extra-curricular activities that are being reduced are crucial to giving children from less advantaged backgrounds the experiences and opportunities that those from the most advantaged backgrounds receive by virtue of their wealth. Does it not say everything about this...

School Funding (25 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: The Secretary of State talks about flexibility within local authority budgets. I have to say, as someone who is about to leave the London Borough of Redbridge this May, that he is in cloud cuckoo land. There is no flexibility in children’s services departments; there is just consistent need and insufficient funding. Parents do not need the UK Statistics Authority to show that some...

Yemen (24 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: The UK’s ability to uphold the values of a rules-based international system will be undermined unless the UK is shown to call Saudi Arabia to account for its indiscriminate bombing of civilians in Yemen. So I ask the Minister, as so many other colleagues have today, to treat with urgency the need for a new UN Security Council resolution to make sure that all ports in Yemen are open to...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: It was, in fact, the case that the president of the National Union of Students sat around the board table of the Higher Education Funding Council for England, so it is not true to say that what we have now is an improvement. We have a token student on the board of the OfS with no representative background whatever, and a talking shop that has no real teeth. That is not the same as having a...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: As the first person in my family to go to university and to have made it from free school meals in an inner-city state school to the University of Cambridge, I am not taking any lectures from the Conservative party about being anti-aspiration. It is because so many of my constituents have high aspirations for their children to go on to high-quality technical education or high-quality higher...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. In fact, one of the things about the appointments process that has deeply damaged the standing of the OfS in the eyes of students was the insistence by Government political advisers that there should be no representatives from students unions or the National Union of Students on the board. The Government did not say, “We’re going to cast...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (Ways and Means): Higher Education (23 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: My hon. Friend is making an incredibly powerful speech. One of the groups on the NUS’s no-platform policy was Hizb ut-Tahrir. Presumably, if Hizb ut-Tahrir was not on the NUS’s no-platform policy and student unions were not making efforts to stop it speaking, the Government would be attacking student unions for not doing enough to tackle extremism on campuses. Does this not...

Windrush (23 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: Our casework is a litmus test of the impact of Government policy, and my casework in the last week has shown family members denied access to weddings and funerals because of arbitrary decisions by the Secretary of State’s Department; international students who are victims of the TOEIC— test of English for international communication—scandal facing deportation on the...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: I rise today to talk about some very special people with an Ilford North connection. Perhaps even more impressive than crossing the party political divide in this debate, Tessa Jowell crosses an even greater political divide in London— the River Thames. I say respectfully to my hon. Friend the Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) and her constituents that we actually had...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: I am so grateful to my hon. Friend for that additional time. If Ministers cannot fund treatment, let us at least look at funding the flights, accommodation and all the additional costs that families face. It was remarkable listening to the comparison between what Tessa has been through and what Kaleigh’s family have been through in this respect. We need better care plans, advice and...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: That is absolutely right. I pay tribute to Great Ormond Street Hospital and other great NHS services that have supported the family. As my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon Central (Sarah Jones) said when she opened the debate, we have all been affected by cancer in some way. The worst experience of my life was losing my nan to cancer when I was aged 10. It is a great source of regret to me...

Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: I am grateful to the Home Secretary for giving way and allowing me, as co-chair of the all-party group on British Jews, to pay tribute to the work of the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council. Let there be no doubt in any quarter of this Chamber that in Jewish schools, Jewish community centres and shuls in my constituency, it is the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Wes Streeting: Will my right hon. Friend give way?
