Cultural Objects (Protection from Seizure) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: In rising to support the Bill, I declare my interest, which predates my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. For a number of years, I was a trustee and director of a small but wonderful local museum, the Helena Thompson Museum. It probably will not be affected by this Bill, which seeks to protect international artefacts alone, but it wonderfully tells the story of...

Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: I rise to dedicate my wholehearted support to the Bill. It will help increase accountability, raise safety standards in the industry and ensure that licensing authorities have access to the same pool of data, which will be valuable in my constituency of Workington and for my borough council, Allerdale. Let me take the opportunity to thank the licensing officers and the councillors on the...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. When my name was first pulled out of the private Members’ Bill ballot, I was presented with a wonderful surprise and a rare opportunity—a chance to take forward real and meaningful change on a matter that is very close to my heart: helping young people to realise their potential. This Bill affords us a genuine opportunity to put...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention as he makes an important point. Many academies, by virtue of the funding agreements put in place over the past eight or nine years, are under a duty to provide this guidance. Many of the others will be doing so. Off the top of my head, I think about 1,300 out of 2,800 do not have it in their funding agreement. The Bill puts them all on the same...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: Indeed, and I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. That is exactly part of the Careers and Enterprise Company’s remit: supporting schools and colleges to deliver world-class careers guidance with the use of enterprise advisers from the local business community so that they deliver in line with the Gatsby benchmarks. We also have the National Careers Service, providing free careers...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: My hon. Friend makes an incredibly powerful and important point on deprivation and the ability to have business volunteers as enterprise advisers face-to-face with those children, showing them that options are available to them if they may not favour an academic route or be able to go on to university. This year, of course, we have seen the launch of T-levels, which gives alternative options...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: Without a doubt. Again, it is really important to have that face-to-face interaction with employers, showing people who may not be as academically minded as some of their peers and wish to go on to university that there are options available to them post 16 and post 18. In my constituency, we have often led the way on apprenticeships, but it is important that that is replicated across the country.

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill (10 Sep 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: My hon. Friend makes an important point. I understand that it is in the competency of the Senedd should it wish to do to something similar. I will come to this, but I have a fantastic university technical college in my constituency and have met regularly with Lord Baker of Dorking on the Baker clause and UTCs. He has done some fantastic work in that space. By October 2021, 1,950 careers...

Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Jul 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: As my right hon. Friend has just mentioned, the European Union’s attempts to trigger article 16 earlier this year caused political reverberations that are still being felt in Northern Ireland. With communities across Northern Ireland now divided in their support for the protocol, does my right hon. Friend agree that it is no longer sustainable as it currently stands, and that an internal...

Mark Jenkinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether he plans to publish the updated Tobacco Control Plan before the publication of the Office for National Statistics data in 2021 on smoking prevalence.

International Travel Rules (19 Jul 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: I welcome my hon. Friend’s work on the reopening of international travel while Opposition Members support a complete shutdown. It has been possible thanks only to the success of our historic vaccine roll-out, but while we see the country opening up further today, travel companies in my constituency still have some very rough months ahead, even were travel to be completely unencumbered. They...

National Health Service (13 Jul 2021)

Mark Jenkinson: We heard from the Minister about the 99% vaccination uptake where an employer had mandated it themselves. Would it not be the case, as in the case that my hon. Friend set out with visitors, that if this was in departmental guidance, it would be incumbent on the care home to take cognisance of it in the risk assessment?
