Kate Green: Plans to build on the green belt in Bury are part of the Greater Manchester spatial strategy, which also affects Flixton in my constituency. Does the Minister agree that Greater Manchester councils should look at using brownfield and other sites in preference to green belt, as he says, and perhaps at increasing density when possible?
Kate Green: Does my hon. Friend agree that urban sprawl happens not only beyond town boundaries but within towns, where green space may be a green lung within a built-up area?
Robert Key: I think that there are no further questions, so that brings us to the end of this evidence session. On behalf of the Committee, I thank Kate Green, Neera Sharma, Fergus Drake and Kate Bell.

Patrick Harvie: Kate Forbes has, in a very short timescale, taken on a difficult task in stepping into the breach to lead a budget process, with no finance secretary in the Cabinet. All political parties have a responsibility to be constructive in the process, but Kate Forbes is also going to have to be constructive with us, in trying to build political agreement such as has not been built prior to the...
Kate Green: You have both alluded to the fact that there is no specific focus on women, either in the Green Paper or in the Bill. Do you feel that it would be useful to progress the proposal that the previous Government took from the Corston review of having a women’s champion in the penal system?
Kate Green: ..., what accreditation process he plans will be used for the training received by the work coaches described in his Department's publication entitled, Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability Green Paper, Cm 9342; and if he will make a statement.
Kate Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking in response to the consultation on the Transforming children and young people’s mental health provision Green Paper in order to improve mental health provision for 18 to 25-year-olds.
Kate Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what discussions he has had with the insurance industry on the financial support they will receive to provide their customers with a green card in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
Kate Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps his Department is taking provide guidance to British citizens who may require multiple green cards to cover their vehicle and any trailers for driving in EU countries after 29 March 2019.
Kate Green: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the number of green cards the insurance industry will need to issue prior to 29 March 2019.

Emma Lewell-Buck: I heard the Minister’s response to my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), but I was dismayed that in the “Schools that work for everyone” Green Paper there was not one single mention of children with special educational needs or disabilities. Is it not true that this Government have simply forgotten about them?
Kate Hoey: Will the Secretary of State assure me that there will be a clear option in the Green Paper, which will satisfy 90 per cent. of the public and everyone—including management—who works for the Post Office, for the Post Office to remain as one integral unit and have more commercial freedom? Will that be a simple option in the Green Paper?
Kate Green: I really welcome the Green Paper’s suggestion about the personal support package. It should be a significant improvement on the disastrous Work programme, which was a total failure for disabled people. Will the Secretary of State confirm that providers of such support will be adequately rewarded and incentivised to provide good enough support, because that was the difficulty with the Work...
Kate Green: ...even just excellent physical and social care, but access to services that maximise their social participation? Will he say a little more about the work being done in parallel with the social care Green Paper?
Kate Green: ...is slightly tangential to the GMSF, but none the less pertinent—to look again at permission in principle? That is also being used in my constituency by developers as a means to try to build on green belt where the planning and obligations that the developers are required to meet are much less rigorous, and both the public and the planning committee have really no say in stopping such...
