Caroline Ansell: What diplomatic steps he is taking to help secure peace between Israel and the Palestinian people.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel (13 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: The middle east is changing before our eyes and the significance of Israel’s peace agreements with the UAE and Bahrain cannot be overstated. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this new development between Israel and her Arab neighbours changes the narrative, creates a new dynamic in the region, and gives rise to new hope for a peace deal?

Covid-19 Update (12 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s decision to reject the twin dire choices of a second national lockdown or letting the virus rip, and to take up the far more challenging and complicated path of localising our actions in particular areas. My constituency is low-incidence for the virus but the hospitality sector is hard hit, and Christmas is now in the frame. What moves might there be, going...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Arab States: Israel (12 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what discussions she has had with her (a) Emirati, (b) Bahraini and (c) Israeli counterparts on helping those countries expand their commercial ties following the normalisation agreement between those countries.

Business of the House (8 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: Now more than ever, when we are promoting all the positive benefits of walking for our mental and physical well-being and for the environment, while still seeing significant costs to the NHS, claims against local councils, and worse, personal injury, and loss of confidence and independence, will the Leader of the House consider a debate on the funding levels and the priority accorded to the...

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps he is taking to help secure peace between Israel and Palestine following the Israel-UAE and Israel-Bahrain peace agreements.

Business of the House (1 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: Last month, it came to light that a neighbouring council, Brighton and Hove, had, without any consultation with Eastbourne Borough Council, quietly moved over 130 homeless people into Eastbourne hotels. Those who it had moved along the coast in this way could not possibly be cared for at arm’s length by Brighton and Hove, nor could they be properly cared for in Eastbourne, unprepared and...

Covid-19 Update and Hospitality Curfew (1 Oct 2020)

Caroline Ansell: My constituency thrives on hospitality, and many jobs are dependent on it. It is also low-incidence when it comes to the virus and high-compliance when it comes to the safety measures around being covid secure. My right hon. Friend said in his opening remarks that the second peak is highly localised. In that light, how quickly can we look to move to a more localised, regional approach to the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund (13 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether English language schools are eligible for support through the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: English Language: Education (13 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many local authorities have paid English Language Schools Business Rate Relief; what discussions he has had with representatives from local authorities that have not paid that relief, and if he will make a statement.

Business of the House (9 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: The Chancellor’s eat out to help out voucher scheme for August is an absolute lifeline for the local economy in Eastbourne, and it will—I hope—promote wellbeing in bringing people together. With the ministerial team working so hard at present to bring back gyms, leisure centres and pools, might we consider, as complementary to that scheme, access to those places so that we can equally...

Written Answers — Treasury: English Language: Education (8 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, whether English Language Schools are eligible for business rate relief for the 2020-21 financial year; and if he will make a statement.

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: Mr Deputy Speaker, “We anticipate that the huge loss of student volume and revenue already seen in 2020 will mean that around 30% of UK English language testing centres will cease trading. More than this will not survive the traditionally quiet winter season.” Those are the words of the sector’s representative body, English UK, and a potentially disastrous prognosis for one of our most...

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: The hon. Gentleman has outlined the very real assistance that the Government have given in the form of the furlough scheme, which has provided lifeline funds. Is there more support going forward? I hope so. In the time afforded me, I hope to touch on the value of the sector and the impact of the virus, and to signpost the road to recovery. My constituency of Eastbourne is known for its record...

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for her kind comments and her recognition of just how important this sector is in her constituency, in mine, and across the country.

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: The hon. Gentleman is so right to add that distinction. While this does provide a boost for our economy, it also enriches, on several different levels, our outreach into the wider world, and the experience of people living here who come into the presence of others from around the world. It is hugely important. The statistics I mentioned are obviously very key to this debate, but so is the...

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend and parliamentary neighbour. In this time of challenge and change, as we step into a new future next year, it is hugely important that we look at the wraparound to this sector. Anything and everything that could present a barrier or an obstacle, or make us less competitive in the world, we should look at and address to make sure that we are match-fit for the future....

Covid-19: International Language Schools (1 Jul 2020)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention and I endorse his request. Such a move would make a difference. Confidence in the junior market has collapsed. It represents 51% of those studying English in the UK, so the impact is catastrophic. It is almost certain that the Italian Government’s ban on school group travel, which is our majority market, will be extended at least until the...
