Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: Was my hon. Friend as interested as I was to discover that the uplift is £250,000 for females and only £170,000 for males? Both are significant figures, but is it not interesting that the larger figure is the uplift for females who go to university?

Immigration Act 2016: Section 67 (19 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: The hon. Member for Westmorland and Lonsdale (Tim Farron) talked of “hollow words”; in fact, the Government’s response has been generous—it is, if I may say so, a typically British generous response to this crisis. Will my right hon. Friend confirm the number of refugees that this country is helping and compare it with the equivalent figures for other EU states?

Prison and Youth Custody Centre Safety (19 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: Reoffending rates remain stubbornly high, especially for young offenders, with nearly seven out of 10 who are sent to prison going on to reoffend on release.

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I, too, warmly welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement on the fair funding formula, and I declare an interest, as a proud father of three children who will benefit as a result of it.

Counter-Daesh Update (13 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I, too, welcome the Secretary of State’s statement. In particular, I welcome his comment about reducing the risk and the number of civilian casualties. Perhaps for the benefit of those who have just entered the Chamber he could repeat the number of civilian casualties there have been as a result of our actions and repeat his confirmation and assurance that he will do all he can to...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: On a wider point, my right hon. Friend will appreciate that many survivors suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning. Of course, carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer. Will he ensure that, among the many other lessons that are learned, the planned review of carbon monoxide alarms actually goes ahead in October 2017?

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: Today’s jobs figures show that we have the highest employment rate since comparable records began. We have more people in full-time employment, and we are touching on the lowest youth unemployment since records began. In the light of the Matthew Taylor review of modern working practices, what more can be done to ensure that that record continues, and that we continue to rid the country...

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I am very grateful to you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for your guidance and for your earlier ruling, which has given me the opportunity to speak for 10 minutes, rather than the nine, eight or seven minutes I might otherwise have had.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: My meaning is the exact opposite. I am very grateful to you, Mr Deputy Speaker. It is a great pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Robert Courts), for whom I feel great sympathy. I am sure that many of my hon. Friends as well as Opposition Members have been in a similar situation when trying to communicate with members of their family on birthdays, important anniversaries...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Forgive me, but this is my very first point of order, and I am sure you will indulge me as a relatively new Member of Parliament. However, in clause 1, there is reference to mobile phone telecommunication as well as—

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Michael Tomlinson: I do not apologise for reinforcing the important point, in case Opposition Members say it has already been made, that 95% coverage still means that 5% of our constituents are left out, so will my hon. Friend join me in pressing the Government to ensure that the service is truly universal? Although we welcome the measures set out in the Bill, we are still speaking up for our constituents, the...
