Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools: Capital Funding (11 Dec 2017)

Angela Rayner: Can the Minister confirm that the Budget actually cut education capital funding by £1 billion in this spending review, and that part of that cut involves removing more than three quarters of the healthy pupils capital programme? Perhaps he recalls the Government’s pledge earlier this year that the healthy pupils fund would not fall below £415 million, regardless. Will he now...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Teacher Recruitment and Retention (11 Dec 2017)

Angela Rayner: Given what the Secretary of State just said about our excellent teachers, I hope that we can all agree that it is time to end the real-terms pay cuts for teachers. However, the Office for Budget Responsibility has warned that this will lead to schools squeezing non-pay spending and reducing the workforce without extra funding. The Chancellor wants us to believe that he has ended the public...

Social Care: Point of Order (7 Dec 2017)

Angela Rayner: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. On 13 September, this House unanimously passed a motion to revoke the Higher Education (Higher Amount) (England) Regulations 2016 and the Higher Education (Basic Amount) (England) Regulations 2016, which imposed the Government’s latest hike in tuition fees. The Government have refused to give effect to the will of the House, but the Leader of the...

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Angela Rayner: I thank the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) for securing this urgent question. Once again, this Prime Minister is not for turning up, and nor is the Education Secretary. No wonder the former chair of the commission said that No. 10 was no longer listening. Perhaps the Minister can actually answer the questions the chair raised in his resignation letter. Are the Government...

Paradise Papers: Points of Order (6 Nov 2017)

Angela Rayner: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In oral questions earlier today, the Secretary of State for Education told the House about her first-class degree in economics. She went on to state that Labour’s spending plans would lead to school budgets being “absolutely frozen” in cash terms. I might not have an economics degree, but I am sure that those at the Institute for Fiscal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Church of England Academy (6 Nov 2017)

Angela Rayner: Last week the Minister told me in a written answer that he would not publish a report on Wakefield City Academies Trust by the Education and Skills Funding Agency because it would be “obstructive to the process of ensuring all the schools are placed with new trusts.” Surely any financial issues are being disclosed to potential new trusts. What on earth is in the report that is so...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Universities UK/Universities Scotland (6 Nov 2017)

Angela Rayner: I wonder if the Minister told Universities UK how the Department was funding the Prime Minister’s announcements on student finance. Can he confirm that those will cost the Department £175 million in this spending review period, and can he guarantee that this will not be funded by yet more cuts to the rest of the education budget?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Efficiency Savings (6 Nov 2017)

Angela Rayner: Can the Secretary of State confirm the National Audit Office assessment that £2.7 billion has been cut from the schools budget since 2015, and that the £1.3 billion she mentioned earlier will protect budgets only until 2020, after which she will either need new money from the Treasury or she will need simply to deliver another cut to school funding?

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Angela Rayner: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Education if she will make a statement on higher education funding.

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Angela Rayner: Let me welcome Members back from conference season. We sang “The Red Flag”, the Conservatives waved the white flag. I told our conference that the Government should get on with sorting out student finance. Then the Prime Minister told her conference that they would. I suppose I am cheaper than Lynton Crosby, but the Government’s announcement begs just a few questions: what,...

Schools: National Funding Formula (14 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: Once again on the last day before a recess we see the Secretary of State sneak out new policy. [Interruption.] I would hardly call that once in a national debate, but I wonder whether this statement has been put out today to try and hide and to distract from the fact that the Government are ripping up the rulebook on democracy, as they did yesterday in the debate on tuition fees. But of...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The vote we just had reflects that it is the will of this House that the increase in tuition fees be reversed. As was mentioned in the debate, it has taken far too long for the House to have the opportunity to vote on this issue. Now that it has, more than eight months since a motion to annul the regulations when they were first tabled, it has voted...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: May I ask the hon. Gentleman whether he actually read our manifesto and looked at our costings, and where in his party’s manifesto the DUP deal was?

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: rose—

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: I beg to move, That the Higher Education (Higher Amount) (England) Regulations 2016 (S.I., 2016, No. 1206) and the Higher Education (Basic Amount) (England) Regulations 2016 (S.I., 2016, No. 1205), both dated 13 December 2016, copies of which were laid before this House on 15 December 2016, in the last Session of Parliament, be revoked. It has taken a long time to get to today’s...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: I hope that the hon. Lady notes that after having to bring this Government to the House to discuss this really important issue time and again, we have had to do this in Opposition time. I hope that Conservative Members who promised the electorate that they were against rises in tuition fees will take that on board today and support the Opposition’s motion. Ministers seem to have found a...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: First of all, let me say that my husband would have been Charles I; I probably would have been a Cromwell. On the important point about our policy on tuition fees, we were clear in our manifesto that we would abolish tuition fees. I think the general public absolutely were clear on our policy on that. [Interruption.] The Secretary of State says, from a sedentary position, “What about...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: I will make some progress. The intention of the parent Act, the Higher Education Act 2004, was clear. It allows any such regulations to be annulled. The then Minister, the former Member for Hull West and Hessle, assured the House that “any change to the fee cap must be made by the affirmative resolution procedure, not the negative procedure. Although we cannot do it in...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: I presume that the hon. Lady is slightly confused by the diktat from the Conservative Whips, which says something about student debt and tuition fees. We have been absolutely clear on both issues. We would not even be having this debate if the Labour party had won the general election, because we would have abolished tuition fees, as promised. The Conservative party already trebled tuition...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Angela Rayner: I absolutely agree, and the points that I have just made show that the Government could progressively do something about that. The interest rates are scandalous, and the income threshold has been frozen despite the Government’s promises that they would not do that. They also still refuse to bring back maintenance grants. Shame on this Government—they do not care about social mobility.
