Simon Clarke: What contingency plans his Department is making for no deal being reached on the UK leaving the EU.
Simon Clarke: I thank the Minister for that answer. If our country is not ready for a no-deal scenario, we are simply not in a position to credibly negotiate with the EU, so will he ensure that colleagues across Government work as hard as they can to maximise the completeness and credibility of their plans?
Simon Clarke: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what average spending per pupil was in (a) Middlesbrough and (b) Redcar and Cleveland in each year since 2009-10.
Simon Clarke: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what proportion of schools in (a) Middlesbrough and (b) Redcar and Cleveland are classified as Good or Outstanding by Ofsted.

Simon Clarke: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many young people in the Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland constituency started an apprenticeship in each year since 2009-10.
Simon Clarke: What preparations has the Department made for a Brexit on World Trade Organisation terms?
Simon Clarke: It was particularly moving to be in here as we heard the sound of the RAF fly-past a few moments ago to mark 100 years of the RAF. It was 100 years ago this month that my great, great uncle John Headlam was killed while serving in the RAF, so it is nice to be able to pay tribute to his service and sacrifice. We are a nation of gardeners, and it is important to us all that our nursery sector...
Simon Clarke: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention and he is right in what he says. That is something people really care about, and people often regard these nurseries as a hub in the local community. They are not just another shop; they are often dearly loved, and this fits with the spirit of the time, when people increasingly want to buy local. Until recently, the exemption that applied in this...
Simon Clarke: Does my hon. Friend agree that this is a crucial Bill, because it gives hope to so many businesses that underpin life in rural constituencies such as his and mine?
Simon Clarke: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what provision he plans to introduce within the UK’s independent trade remedies framework for the calculation of dumping margins in circumstances in which the standard methodology may not be appropriate.
Simon Clarke: I rise to present the petition of residents of Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland. The petition states: The petition of residents of Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, Declare that the "Home Education - Call for Evidence and revised DfE guidance" has been written following significant consultation with local authorities and no consultation whatsoever with the home education...
Simon Clarke: I look forward to welcoming Heather Steven, the practice manager at Loftus’s GP surgery, to my right hon. Friend’s Downing Street reception for the NHS later. Can my right hon. Friend assure the House that as part of this Government’s record investment in the NHS, she will ensure that primary care services receive all the support they need?
Simon Clarke: What steps she is taking to protect aid projects following reports of sexual misconduct by Oxfam and other charity workers overseas.
Simon Clarke: My constituents were very clear on what they were voting for in 2016, and that would not be delivered by a Norway-style agreement. Can the Prime Minister guarantee that, whatever our future arrangement with the EU is, it will not circumscribe our ability to strike free trade deals or to end free movement?
Simon Clarke: How much her Department has spent on supporting people with disabilities and health conditions in the last 12 months; and what the change in that amount has been in real terms since 2010.
Simon Clarke: I thank the Minister for her answer. Will she join me in congratulating the East Cleveland employment and training hub in Skinningrove, which opened in February and has done brilliant work for a number of my constituents, including those with the health and disability issues to which my question refers?
Simon Clarke: Teesside has put in a bid for a logistics hub. Does the hon. Lady agree that this kind of sharing of the benefits of Heathrow expansion shows why shadow Front Benchers have got themselves into a really ludicrous position?
Simon Clarke: I do not understand what difference it makes where the flights are going to. If we want trade and business with the rest of the world, why does that matter? We want that business—why does not the hon. Gentleman?
