Friend agree that although much progress has been made in diagnosis, there is still a long way to go in terms of care, especially for those individuals in Mid Dorset and North Poole?

St Ives First School (10 Jun 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for securing the debate. I, of course, accept the principle and benefits of parental choice, but does he agree that the St Ives proposal should be properly co-ordinated and consulted on, as he was outlining, so that neighbouring schools that are affected, such as St Michael’s in Colehill, can make the necessary consequential arrangements in a timely fashion?

Michael Tomlinson: Last year, Dorset schools welcomed £3.1 million in additional funding, and Poole schools £3.2 million in additional funding. What reassurance can my right hon.

The tourism industry across the whole of our county will be affected if this...

Education and Adoption Bill (22 Jun 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: I am particularly pleased to be called to make my maiden speech in this important debate and to follow so many other excellent maiden speeches.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prisoner Rehabilitation Services (23 Jun 2015)

Superfast Broadband — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (24 Jun 2015)

Business of the House (2 Jul 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: Corfe Mullen, Wimborne and Merley and Bearwood are three important areas in my constituency. Each is protected by the green belt. What they have in common is that the green belt is under threat there and in Purbeck. Will my right hon. Friend make time for an urgent debate on the matter to ensure that our green belt is protected and that Dorset remains a special place to live, work and visit?

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 7 - Duty to make Academy orders (9 Jul 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: On that point of pausing, is not the problem with some of the amendments, specifically amendment 40, that schools will potentially be left in a state that is causing concern for too long? The explanatory statement with amendment 40 says that “this amendment allows for mature reflection of the need for academisation”. Is “mature reflection” simply another phrase for...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 7 - Duty to make Academy orders (9 Jul 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: An example of where it works would be Magna Academy, which is now a sponsored academy in Canford Heath in my constituency. Two years ago, the school was in special measures but, in the past two weeks, it has received an “outstanding” in every single category, which I am told is a first in the south-west in that framework.

Isil: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2015)

What steps can be taken to help to prevent this?

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Clause 1 - Coasting schools (14 Jul 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: Does my hon. Friend agree that although Labour members of the Committee have mentioned the Conservative party manifesto, this is but one measure in a package with which the Conservative party aims to drive up standards and improve schools?

Thomas Cook: Christi and Bobby Shepherd (14 Jul 2015)

Michael Tomlinson: Six months almost to the day before Bobby and Christi Shepherd were killed, my brother Edward was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning while abroad, so I am doubly grateful to the hon.
