Artistic Remuneration for Online Content — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: I not only share that concern but think there is a concern that the streaming sites where the content is available for free are, in effect, pirate sites; they are providing the service that pirate sites would otherwise provide. Just because users might be pushed to other pirate sites, that does not mean we should not address sites that seem legitimate and are also providing the service for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: General Practice and Primary Care (5 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: What plans his Department has to increase capacity in general practice and primary care.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: General Practice and Primary Care (5 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: Having met GPs, health centre managers and patient groups in Frome, Wincanton and Somerton in my constituency, I know that GP recruitment is a serious problem in Somerset. What measures is the Department putting in place to address both that issue and the additional challenge of excessive agency costs, both of which are placing a considerable strain on rural health providers?

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: Is it fair to point out that all the figures just given by the Minister are from before the announcement of the new EBacc and the consultation of November 2015, which is what has seen the drop in entries that we are all talking about?

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: I congratulate the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) on her very powerful and meaningful speech. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck, and to have the opportunity to speak on a subject that is very important to me. I should start by declaring a bit of an interest. I am lucky enough to come from an arts background, having studied at...

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: I am afraid I do not have that figure to hand, although I am sure that the Minister can regale us with it. I am sure that he has it front of him and can come out with it later, and I look forward to that with great interest.

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: I think that sharing music facilities and facilities generally is often a good way forward. That could certainly be considered, but schools need to work individually and to have the right facilities to look after their own pupils without having to look elsewhere—without having to run across the road and make sure that somebody else can help them out. An EBacc that fails to make room for...

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: My hon. Friend makes a good point. We can have a larger EBacc, we can manage our subjects more carefully, we can have an EBacc plus, as has been suggested, or we can have a more pick-and-mix, flexible and balanced approach, which might be more sensible. An EBacc without the arts is unthinkable. A core curriculum without the arts will not raise standards, but will lower them. Plato, 2,500...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Character Development (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: What steps her Department is taking to ensure that young people develop character at school.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Character Development (4 Jul 2016)

David Warburton: I thank the Minister for that answer. I chair the all-party group on the British Council, which is about to launch an inquiry into the causes of extremism and radicalisation. I am sure that my hon. Friend well understands the crucial importance of the arts in developing breadth and depth of character—we will be debating arts education later today. How is the Department working to ensure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoner Education (26 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: What plans he has to reform education in prisons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoner Education (26 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is imperative the recommendations of the Coates review are acted on in a way that focuses on both paths into employment and the wider non-utilitarian personal and moral benefits that education can bring?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Somerton and Frome (25 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what plans her Department has to meet demand for school places in Somerton and Frome constituency.

Record Copies of Acts (20 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: I wonder whether we are belittling ourselves slightly. Yes, vellum is almost immortally permanent and—from the Domesday Book to the equally wondrous Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Act 2016—has faithfully freighted and defended its contents. If we ditch it for a ream of A4 80 gsm paper, or whatever it might be, our descendants will watch as the laws...

Backbench Business - Daesh: Genocide of Minoritiesbackbench Business (20 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: I join others in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) on her tremendous efforts in securing the debate. Words matter, and saying that Daesh is committing acts of genocide against Christians and Yazidis is not just a statement of fact, because it also forces us to realise that genocide is, unfortunately, an inherent part of Daesh’s depraved operations....

Backbench Business - Daesh: Genocide of Minoritiesbackbench Business (20 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is not only tragic but bizarre and unimaginable that Daesh has taken its own religion and turned it into something so distinctly different from what was intended.

Backbench Business - Daesh: Genocide of Minoritiesbackbench Business (20 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: I could not agree more. The cultural demolition is explicitly linked to the genocidal aims that we are discussing. To say that Christians and Yazidis are victims of genocide is not to minimise the terrible suffering of others in the region. In a debate held on a similar motion in another place, Lord Bates was entirely right to point out that it is often Muslims who suffer the greatest...

Backbench Business - Daesh: Genocide of Minoritiesbackbench Business (20 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: I agree with the hon. Lady, and the speech by the hon. Member for Glasgow East gave us an immensely powerful first-person perspective. I completely understand the Government’s approach, which is that a decision on whether the word “genocide” is applicable is for international judicial bodies, rather than Governments or other non-judicial bodies. However, as the open letter...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Afghanistan (19 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what her Department's policy is on ensuring that Afghan interpreters who have assisted British troops are able to claim asylum in the UK; and whether her Department plans to review that policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Referendum (12 Apr 2016)

David Warburton: What assessment he has made of the effect of the EU referendum on the UK’s diplomatic relations (a) within the EU and (b) globally.
