Luke Evans: What steps her Department is taking to increase the number of school places for pupils with (a) special educational needs and (b) disabilities.

Education: School Places: Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (28 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: I thank the Minister, who has already said that the consultation results will come out in January, but day in, day out in Leicestershire we hear cases involving parents who have had to struggle and fight to get SEND support, which is one of the biggest problems they face. Will that be put at the heart of the review? Secondly, the Minister talked about the £2.6 billion. How can the likes of...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 11 - Procedural requirements (24 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: If Scotland were to be independent and part of the EU, the European Council uses majority voting so members have to like or lump whatever they are given at the end of the vote. At the end of the day, someone has to make a decision and Government have to decide. How would that fit if Scotland were independent?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 11 - Procedural requirements (24 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: On a point of order, Sir George. I think it is fair to say that the Minister has given way numerous times. It is a little churlish to suggest that she has not, and I would like Hansard to observe that.

Transport: Strategic Importance of the A5 (24 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: What assessment his Department has made of the strategic importance of the A5 in the midlands to the national economy and transport network.

Transport: Strategic Importance of the A5 (24 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: I am grateful to the Minister for his encouragement on the strategic importance of the A5, because its improvement has political support from the parishes all the way to MPs of all colours. Economically, improving the A5 will drive our growth and, strategically, will deliver houses and prosperity in my area. Is he aware of Midlands Connect’s most recent report, which shows that, on average,...

Transport: Topical Questions (24 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: The campaign to reopen the Ivanhoe line, joining Burton to Leicester and coming through my constituency, has the support of four MPs. It has been gaining traction, support and funding from the Department for Transport. We are now into the millions and the project is getting closer to coming to fruition. Will the Minister comment on where this programme is and how likely it is to come forward?

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Sunset of EU-derived subordinate legislation and retained direct EU legislation (22 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: The hon. Lady is making a very good point about ensuring we have protections in place. Is she not missing the point and being slightly mischievous, because this is setting out a framework of how to deal with the problem, not the specifics? Those can still come later. She is right to argue that anyone in the House could make those changes, but the whole principle here is laying out the...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Land Banking (21 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: What steps his Department is taking to tackle land banking by property developers and encourage development.

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Land Banking (21 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: I am grateful for the Minister’s answer. This issue is important for areas such as mine, where we do not have an up-to-date local plan because the Lib Dem borough council has not sorted it. That leads to a vulnerability in our community to speculative development. Coupling that with the duty to co-operate with Leicester city, which is not building up and out either, results in huge amounts...

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: My hon. Friend is making an excellent point about the impact of animals on mental wellbeing. Does he agree that having an animal to provide that support is even more important in rural areas, where loneliness is such a big problem?

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) on his speech, but I think he has done us a bit of a disservice. He spoke for 45 minutes, and I am sure he could have spoken about this topic for about three hours, given his immense knowledge. That is testament to him, and to his time and effort spent dealing with this important Bill. I am pleased to support the Bill,...

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: My hon. Friend is making an excellent point. Drawing on his expertise, and looking on a system-wide basis, does he think that the invention of the integrated care boards, pulling together social services, councils and the NHS all in one place, provides the chance to try to join up exactly the care he is talking about?

Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill (18 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: The hon. Lady is right to want to ensure that standards and an inspection regime are in place. Does she feel that there should be a complaints procedure as well, which could be raised with the bodies, so that if someone is running into trouble, they have that back-up?

International Men’s Day (17 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: Does that mean that Labour supports the idea of having a male health strategy, or a male Minister?

International Men’s Day (17 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: I entirely agree with what my hon. Friend is saying. Toxic masculinity is potentially very dangerous. We set our young boys up to think that there is something innately wrong with them in relation to the way in which they interact with society. Does my hon. Friend feel that that is a problem?

International Men’s Day (17 Nov 2022)

Luke Evans: My hon. Friend has hit on something: we should not be shy of masculinity. It is about how to use that in a positive way, whether we are talking about sport, going to the gym or being a father figure. That is really important and if we try to close that down, it closes status, and that results in bad mental health. Does he support that philosophy after what he saw in his gym?
