Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Apprenticeships (7 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: What steps are being taken to increase the number of apprenticeships in Northern Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Apprenticeships (7 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: Employers in Northern Ireland recently told members of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee that while there is no Northern Ireland Executive in place they are having to pay the apprenticeship levy but have no access to the funds to take on apprentices, because without an Executive the block grant is not being distributed. The apprenticeship levy in Northern Ireland is turning into a...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: As a female MP, I am honoured to have secured this Adjournment debate on the 100th anniversary of women gaining the vote. Last week saw the launch in Parliament of the “Autism and education in England 2017” report of an inquiry, which was co-chaired by myself and my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman), that formed part of the work of the all-party...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I agree. Our report found that as many as one in 100 children attending our schools is on the autistic spectrum, which means that a significant number of children need our support. Our inquiry heard from teachers who told us not only how they struggle to support students in mainstream schools because of a lack of special educational needs provision, but about the difficulties they experience...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: My right hon. Friend is correct, and one of our report’s findings is that the training needs to go wider than just teachers. I will touch on that when I come to our recommendations. Given the lack of support, children on the autism spectrum often end up in crisis. If they had received the support they needed in the first place, and if they had received a quicker diagnosis, such children...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: The hon. Lady is right. Some 17% of children with autism have been suspended from school at some point. Of that number, 48% have been suspended three or more times, and 4% have been permanently excluded, so the current school system is not working for a significant number of children. That has consequences in later life because, as experts told our hearings, if these children have the right...

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: My hon. Friend is right. These children have not just a right, but a legal right. As the inquiry heard, the most frustrating thing is that existing legislation should be providing for such care in the education system. We have not only the Children and Families Act 2014, but the Autism Act 2009, which my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan) introduced....

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. This is absolutely about not just teachers, but the whole support staff. Our report calls on the Government to introduce a national autism strategy by the end of 2019, which should include training for school staff, the provision of a specialist curriculum for all pupils who need one, and measures to reduce bullying and promote inclusion in...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I am sure that my right hon. Friend will agree that Sussex is leading the way in having great women in politics, with our wonderful Home Secretary, our first female Muslim Minister who spoke at the Dispatch Box a few weeks ago, a female chief executive officer of East Sussex County Council, a female leader of West Sussex County Council and Katy Bourne, the Sussex police and crime...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (30 Jan 2018)

Maria Caulfield: As banks are closing on our high streets, two of my towns, Newhaven and Polegate, are not having any banking facilities left. Will the Minister consider expanding the facilities that post offices offer? Postmasters such as the one in East Dean in my constituency are keen to do more, but Post Office Ltd refuses to allow them to do so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schoolchildren with Autism (29 Jan 2018)

Maria Caulfield: What progress his Department has made on supporting children with autism at school.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schoolchildren with Autism (29 Jan 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I thank the Minister for his reply. We look forward to welcoming the Secretary of State on Wednesday, when the all-party group on autism, co-chaired by me and my hon. Friend the Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman), launches its education report. Will the Minister commit to implementing the recommendations of our report, so that we can improve the educational experience for children...
