Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Clive Lewis: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) who I believe is one of the few Conservative Members who gets the scale of the challenge before us. Most Members of the House agree that something needs to be done, but the difference between many Conservative Members and Labour Members comes down to the speed, scale and ambition of that challenge. For example, in 2017...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

Clive Lewis: You took the words out of my mouth. Labour Members are committed to nothing less than the total transformation of our economy—not just how it works, but for whom it works. So many of us who came into politics as Labour Members understand that the fight against the climate crisis is the fight against inequality. Why? Because we know that the poorest 50% of people in this country, and...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I thank the Minister for his response, and I thank all those who have contributed to this timely and interesting debate. On the issue of Jane Austen College and the Inspiration Trust, I have always been supportive of the teachers and the pupils in such schools. My issue has never been with them; it has always been with the philosophy behind free schools and academies, and sometimes with their...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I beg to move, That this House has considered school funding in East Anglia. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. We are here to talk a little about why the £14 billion package of schools funding promised by the new Government is too little and too late for schools in my constituency and across East Anglia. My constituency boasts many very good, often outstanding...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I thank the hon. Gentleman for being supportive of the debate and for the work he has done with me and local headteachers. That money is welcome, but it is not enough. I will come on to the details of that. I agree that any increase is welcome, but we need to ensure that it is the right increase.

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I thank my hon. Friend for his input. We have to accept that our schools are running out of money for the same reason that our public services are underfunded: because of a damaging political choice. I will come on to that, but let me add that one of the reasons I sought the debate was that, as I understood it, every school in Norfolk was potentially going to put in a cost-overrun budget—an...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I will address that in detail shortly, but there is indeed a crisis in special educational needs teaching. Every parent and teacher knows how vital teaching assistants are to aiding our young people’s learning, yet a briefing meant only for Ministers and officials at the Department for Education, which was leaked last week, was clear that the Government still intend to slash the number of...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: Heads will roll back in my office.

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Clive Lewis: I might get my figures wrong, but I get my acronyms right. I think we are talking about the private finance initiative. I was with the hon. Gentleman at a fantastic school in Taverham where the PFI contract stated that its vast resources, including the gym and the swimming pool, could not be used by the local community. Once the school gates were locked, that fantastic resource could not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Yemen (17 Jul 2019)

Clive Lewis: Last month’s ruling by the Court of Appeal that the Government’s continued licensing of the exporting of military equipment to Saudi Arabia is unlawful offers real hope to the people of Yemen—despite the Government’s hypocrisy in calling for peace while selling arms to the Saudis to bomb and to kill, hampering the work of aid agencies on the ground. What representations will the...
