Palestinian School Textbooks: EU Review — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (30 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I beg to move, That this House has considered the EU Review into Palestinian school textbooks. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Angela. It is a privilege to speak in this place, and I do so today with a keen sense of responsibility. Very recently, yet more Palestinian and Israeli lives were lost to conflict and citizens left traumatised. The ceasefire has held,...

Palestinian School Textbooks: EU Review — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (30 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his question, which strikes at the heart of the point I was making: although there is increased coverage and focus on human rights, that does not extend to the Israelis. Actually, the very point that I rested on was that the conclusion rests on a report that offers up, in its body, example after example that contradict those UNESCO values. We need to...

Palestinian School Textbooks: EU Review — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (30 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I concur entirely. What is required is a full reading of the body of evidence, because the executive summary does not seem to reflect that evidence. In fact, it must be contested that the textbooks adhere to the UNESCO standards when they simultaneously espouse a narrative of resistance to Israel and display antagonism towards it. How can the report’s conclusion be reconciled with the...

Palestinian School Textbooks: EU Review — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (30 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for his excellent question, and I concur. Education is absolutely at the heart of this process; it is mission-critical to establishing a peaceful resolution in the region. Change is possible where there is political will and leadership. From Tunisia and Egypt through to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, there is a clear trend across the region for improving...

Wales: Jobs and Investment (30 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I thank my hon. Friend for his answer. Visitor destinations in Wales are, like Eastbourne, set for an unprecedented staycation summer this year, but to secure the long-term recovery of the sector, to remain internationally competitive and to fully realise the power of the visitor economy, the 5% VAT cut is key. Will he make representations to the Treasury to that effect?

Caroline Ansell: What steps his Department is taking to provide disadvantaged students with access to high-quality tutoring support.

Education: Disadvantaged Students: Tutoring Support (21 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: Early feedback from my local school leaders suggests that tutoring is going to make a real difference, but there is some small concern that it can come with an opportunity cost in the school day, potentially affecting pupils’ experience of a broad and balanced curriculum, especially the creative arts and sports. Is that therefore an important consideration in the debate about having a...

International Trade: English Language Teaching (10 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: The English language is arguably this country’s most successful export. Covid has of course devastated the sector, and with the international scene still challenging, the impact goes on and is deep and wide even as other sectors recover. Will my hon. Friend meet me, a delegation of MPs and officials from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Ministry of...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 Jun 2021)

Caroline Ansell: I am delighted to report back to my right hon. Friend that the University of Brighton, which has a campus in Eastbourne, has experienced a significant rise in the number of applications to study for careers in health professions. A shortage of training placements is the only real brake on the numbers of would-be students. I understand from having talked to the university that in the UK...

Business of the House (20 May 2021)

Caroline Ansell: My constituent Rosie Aldridge’s son, Alfie, was diagnosed at eight with adrenoleukodystrophy. He can no longer walk, chew or swallow. Rosie describes this as every parent’s nightmare, and my heart goes out to her. In the United States, a post-natal heel prick is routine, and the question is whether this simple procedure could have meant a very different outcome for Alfie and others like...

Church Commissioners: Persecution for Religion and Belief (22 Apr 2021)

Caroline Ansell: The global pandemic has only exacerbated the persecution of people of faith. I was dismayed to learn from this year’s world watch list that Nigeria has become increasingly hostile to Christians. The Anglican Church in Nigeria is its second-largest congregation in the world, so what support is the Church of England providing to raise awareness and to tackle persecution in Nigeria and around...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2021)

Caroline Ansell: The eviction ban instituted by my right hon. Friend last year and due to end in May has undoubtedly saved untold misery. Now, covid-related rent arrears, built over successive lockdowns, are a very real danger. Will my right hon. Friend outline how measures will evolve to support individuals, families and landlords to sustain viable tenancies as we move into recovery?
