Dan Carden: May I take this opportunity to plug the Liverpool Philharmonic, which has done similarly good work for the past eight years?

Unfortunately I have not had time to read the report, but if that has not been looked into, it is a great study of positive work that is being done...

Dan Carden: Will the Minister give way?

Education Funding (South Liverpool) (10 Oct 2017)

Dan Carden: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. As she is outlining, this is a funding attack on schools not just in south Liverpool, but across our city and beyond. The education unions have calculated that, after the last revision of the funding formula and the extra money announced before recess, my constituency alone will lose £4 million, or £300 per pupil, by 2020. I...

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Dan Carden: I worked at the Unite trade union when this country was faced with the steel crisis. This Government had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, from a position where it would take no action to a position where it was willing to take a 25% stake in the industry. We are seeing the exact same thing again. If there was a serious industrial strategy, the Minister would take action and guarantee...

Dan Carden: In Liverpool, Walton, 36% of children are growing up in poverty, and unemployment is twice the national average.

Exiting the European Union: UK Workers’ Rights (7 Sep 2017)

Dan Carden: That is very interesting, because the Secretary of State for International Trade wrote in the Financial Times in 2012: “To restore Britain’s competitiveness we must begin by deregulating the labour market. Political objections must be overridden… It is intellectually unsustainable to believe that workplace rights should remain untouchable”. Is it not the case that we...

Business of the House (29 Jun 2017)

Dan Carden: The real impact of police cuts can be measured by the rising tide of gun crime across Merseyside, where there have been 100 shooting incidents in the last 18 months and 10 in this month alone.
