European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Layla Moran: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way and for his acknowledgement of the increased cost pressures. Another cost pressure—welcome, in a sense—is the rise in pay, particularly for teachers on the main pay scale. I want that to continue, because as the Minister knows teacher retention and recruitment is a major issue in the sector, but does he agree that if it does continue we...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: Does the Minister understand the frustration not just of the teaching profession but of parents? I am a governor at one of the schools in Oxfordshire that he mentioned. Perhaps he is suggesting that the board of governors and I are not managing our money or resources properly. I assure him that we are doing everything we can for this issue not to affect frontline services, but it does. My...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for giving way and for raising the issue of special educational needs provision. The education, health and care plan system is not working in places such as Oxfordshire because the county does not have the resources to deliver it. Although the schools are able to come up with the plans, they and the county do not have the money. Is this a picture that she has...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: Does my hon. Friend agree that it was slightly concerning that that £1.3 billion was not new money? When the Public Accounts Committee, on which I sit, questioned representatives from the Department on where that money would come from, they said that the vast majority of it was coming from so-called efficiency savings. At the time, they were unable to tell us exactly where the money was...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: Does my hon. Friend recognise from meetings he has had with headteachers, as I have had, that the reason why this is significant is that roughly 75% of a school’s budget goes on its teaching and support staff? The reduction in budget can only come from what is left. Schools have now got to the point where they can cut no more without affecting frontline staff, and that will lead to a...

National Funding Formula: Social Mobility — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: My hon. Friend is making a powerful speech. Does she agree that, while raising teachers’ pay on the main scale is very welcome, it is pointless if it is not new money coming to schools? Otherwise, that money is being taken away from the frontline—the children.

Transport Emissions: Urban Areas (22 May 2018)

Layla Moran: Everyone has the right to clean air, including people in villages such as North Hinksey and market towns such as Abingdon in my constituency, yet those places have hotspots, and those sorts of conurbations are not mentioned at all in the clean air strategy. Will the Secretary of State confirm that his ambitions extend to smaller conurbations, not just cities?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Layla Moran: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I have a young constituent who has PKU, a rare inherited disorder that requires a strict diet and treatment for life. She had been in receipt of the disability living allowance, but now that she has turned 16, she has scored zero in every personal independence payment category. Will the Minister meet my constituent and me so that we can iron out this clear case of “the computer says...

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Layla Moran: As you know, Mr Speaker, I am the first MP of Palestinian descent. Where it not for the Nakba—we are commemorating 70 years of that today—perhaps I would not be here, so it would be remiss of me not to press the Government. I absolutely agree that Hamas is partly responsible for this situation, and in between Hamas and a very extreme Israeli Prime Minister, we have the blood of...

Tributes: Baroness Jowell: Schools That Work For Everyone (14 May 2018)

Layla Moran: The Government’s consultation paper states that the educational benefits of attending a grammar school are twice as large for pupils on free school meals than others, but has the Secretary of State actually read the sole report that is cited in the consultation paper? It states that the advantage is “certainly not large” and that “we should be cautious about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Children in Need (14 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I would like to associate myself and the Liberal Democrats with the tributes paid to Dame Tessa Jowell. She was an inspiration, particularly in the area of early-years provision. Looked-after children in Oxfordshire could have to wait for up to six months to get into the secondary school that they need to, primarily because local authorities do not have the directive powers over academies...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc) (No. 2) Bill: Helen and Douglas House Hospice (11 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I am so grateful that the House has allowed me to speak about funding for the Helen and Douglas House Hospice in Oxford. It is an incredibly important matter, not least because Helen House was the world’s first children’s hospice, starting the children’s hospice movement that spread around the world. It opened in 1982 to provide a home for terminally ill babies, children,...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc) (No. 2) Bill: Helen and Douglas House Hospice (11 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I very much thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and completely endorse what he says. The care that the hospice provides is world class and one of a kind. With the closure of Douglas House—I will get to this later—we will see hospices across the area having to deal with the extra need. Helen House is truly unique. I wish to pay tribute to some amazing fundraising...

Road Traffic Offenders (Surrender of Driving Licences etc) (No. 2) Bill: Helen and Douglas House Hospice (11 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I absolutely agree with the hon. Gentleman. There is a more systemic issue that I will get to later in my speech. I now wish to tell the story of Sienna, who very much exemplifies one of the children and many of the families who we know use Helen and Douglas House. She is six years old and lives in Wootton with her mum, Kay, and dad, Andy. Her brother, Jamie, is 13 and sister, Ella, is 12....

Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement) Bill (11 May 2018)

Layla Moran: My background is as a teacher, and I can certainly attest that 16-year-olds have more than the capacity to make these complex decisions. In fact, does the hon. Gentleman agree that in some cases they put much more consideration into such decisions than some adults?

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Layla Moran: Will the hon. Gentleman join me in thanking all the groups across our county that do this, and especially Christopher Gowers from Wolvercote? Many of them cross our constituency boundaries, because our communities are interwoven.

Backbench Business - Banking Misconduct and the Fcabackbench Business (10 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. Does he agree that it is not just businesses that suffer? It is also families and people’s mental health. Nigel and Julie Morgan, who are here with us today listening to the debate, have been adversely affected by this issue for years. It is that which we have to bear in mind.

Health and Social Care Committee and Education Committee (10 May 2018)

Layla Moran: I welcome this very valuable report, and in particular paragraphs 31 and 32 on building resilience against exam pressure and the effect on mental health of the narrowing of the curriculum. However, rather than building resilience against something that is likely causing part of the problem, did the Select Committee ever consider suggesting an independent root-and-branch reform of the...
