Nissan: Sunderland: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords] (31 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to talk on this subject, and on this Bill which, as have heard, has been a long time coming. It is of great cultural and symbolic significance. I know the debates in another place have been conducted in a constructive bipartisan spirit, and it is nice to see this debate conducted in the same vein. I am delighted that the Government have found parliamentary time for this type...

Public Bill Committee: Small Charitable Donations and Childcare Payments Bill: Meaning of “small donation” (18 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: Given that the Government have not included SMS or internet donations in the Bill, can the Minister tell us what the Government are doing to help the charities that benefit more from those kinds of donations?

Small Charitable Donations and Childcare Payments Bill (11 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to support a Bill that, although pretty straightforward and simple in outlook, as we have heard, is likely to have a significant impact on the small groups and charities that need it most. In my constituency in Somerset, the uniquely spectacular levels of community spirit and the astonishing energy with which people are keen to help those around them mean that there is a huge...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pension Protection Fund (10 Oct 2016)

David Warburton: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what his Department's timetable is for publishing and implementing the secondary legislation required to implement the increase in the Pension Protection Fund compensation cap provided for under the Pensions Act 2014.

Digital Economy Bill (13 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: As we have heard today, the Bill casts its net wide and sets out to address an enormous range of issues, doing so extremely well for most. I want to add my voice to further issues, to echo the words of others and to make a special plea for rural areas and the particular problems that they face. By the end of next year, 95% of premises are likely to have access to broadband speeds of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisons: Mobile Phones (6 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: What steps her Department is taking to prevent the use of mobile phones in prisons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisons: Mobile Phones (6 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: The connection between technology and radicalisation by the dissemination of extremism in prisons is one of the most critical challenges we face. Will my hon. Friend continue to do everything possible to ensure that prisoners, who already face difficulties re-engaging with society, do not have that difficult task made impossible by those who would use technology such as mobile phones to...

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

David Warburton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Mr Gray. I too congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams) on securing the debate. When Thomas Edison shouted “Mary had a little lamb” into his phonograph in 1877, he precipitated a musical earthquake, to use modern parliamentary language. By the time I was a teenager in 1977, buying...

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

David Warburton: Absolutely. The hon. Gentleman hits the nail with all of his head. He makes a perfect point, which I am just about to come on to; he is reading my mind. When we click and listen, not only does the artist’s music become more ephemeral, more fleeting, less substantial, less physical, less tangible, but it also becomes commoditised, losing its uniqueness, brand and differentiation. In the...

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.
