Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Mike Kane: On the sclerotic nature of this Parliament and whether a general election will somehow change that, will it ever? Brexit has been a virus in a vial in a nightstand by the Tory party bed for 40 years. Occasionally, it would break and infect the Conservative party, which would catch a cold, and maybe the Labour party would win an election. You unleashed a referendum and broke the vial across...

School Funding: East Anglia — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Sep 2019)

Mike Kane: ...happening in all our regions—the exact same problems that schools up and down our country face. I have lost count of the number of debates that there have been. With the economic uncertainty of Brexit, and especially a no-deal Brexit, which the new Prime Minister seems so keen to pursue, it defies all logic to have a Government who are failing to invest properly in education and...

School Funding (25 Apr 2019)

Mike Kane: .... I thank the Backbench Business Committee for securing this debate and the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) for starting off with a powerful speech. She talked about billions being spent on Brexit rather than education and about a deep-rooted, systemic problem with funding in the system. The whole House has been united in discussing the problem of school funding. There is no...

Special Educational Needs — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (20 Mar 2019)

Mike Kane: ...important debate. Today we have here both the hon. Member for York Outer and my hon. Friend the Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell), or inner York—their constituency names reflect their Brexit politics, in a way. Who says nominative determinism is dead? York has lost £9.9 million of education funding since 2015-16. That is one reason why MPs across the country are seeing their...

Special Educational Needs — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (20 Mar 2019)

Mike Kane: Oh my word. Ten years of this Government, and they are about to drive us off a cliff with Brexit, and that is the best the hon. Gentleman can come up with.

Flybmi (18 Feb 2019)

Mike Kane: In the event of a no-deal Brexit, there could be no expansion of airline routes from the UK to the EU. That is what is causing the huge uncertainty for operators in the UK. After two and a half years of negotiation, can the Minister not see the damage being done to the sector?

Free Schools and Academies in England — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (5 Dec 2018)

Mike Kane: .... I congratulate the right hon. Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands) on securing this important debate. It is a debate without many Members; the House sat very late last night with the Brexit deliberations. I understand that the right hon. Gentleman went to Dr Challoner’s Grammar School. Its motto is “Ad Astra Per Aspera”, which means, “We look to the stars through...

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Mike Kane: ...abroad, their international exploits are made a lot easier when they have access to direct air links to their chosen markets. Growing our access to those markets will be even more important after Brexit, as will ensuring that they can access the UK market. I am very proud to represent an airport that has the most point-to-point connections of any airport in the UK. Tourists from all...

Leaving the EU: Aviation Sector — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (31 Oct 2018)

Mike Kane: ...the EU, to prepare the aviation sector for the next, crucial five to 10 years. The welcome that we give to those who visit us is also part and parcel of creating a truly international Britain after Brexit. It is how we tell the world that we are open for business and how we encourage tourists to come to see us time and time again. Lots of questions still need answering, and there is a risk...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Police: Border Funding (31 Oct 2018)

Mike Kane: The European arrest warrant is key to cross-border policing. Can the Secretary of State confirm that it will be retained post Brexit?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Mike Kane: Twenty-five thousand jobs and 30 million passengers depend on Manchester airport, which is in my constituency, but with no World Trade Organisation fall-back position after Brexit, can the Prime Minister explain why the Government have downgraded the possibility of an aviation sector deal?

Northern Ireland (20 Feb 2018)

Mike Kane: recollection of violence because of the Good Friday agreement. Therefore, does the Secretary of State agree that those who are playing fast and loose with that agreement for their own terms over Brexit should not be doing so?

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Mike Kane: ...have about the section 28 designation of the college in the area. Hopefully, the Minister will approve the exciting new plans in the weeks and months ahead. Those plans need to be approved. With Brexit looming, and frankly a remarkable lack of clarify from the Government on the reciprocal rights of EU workers, there is an urgent need to face up to the skills gap. I normally cover the...

16-to-19 Education Funding — [David Hanson in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Mike Kane: ...; the unknown impact of the apprenticeship levy; the maths and English funding condition; and a costly and potentially failed review of post-16 education. If we truly want to meet the challenges of Brexit and address the problems it will create for our economy, we must face up to the country’s skills shortage. We cannot do that by undermining our post-16 sector. I pay tribute to every...

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

Mike Kane: ...taking the time out to make sure we have good public policy that will benefit our constituents. It is it hard to say it, but I congratulate the Minister. He was derailed by the small matter of Brexit. I know how frustrated he was that the Bill did not come before the House a few weeks ago, and how committed he is to it. We have some differences over what the regulations, loopholes and...

West Sussex Schools Funding — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (2 Nov 2016)

Mike Kane: ..., which has rising house values and a heated economy, with people having to travel to London to work. With inflation rising to a two-year high and many predicting it will rise again in the light of Brexit—if we have a chaotic Brexit, the situation could be worse—it looks as though schools funding will face even higher real-terms cuts. The IFS has said that, over the course of this...

Education (Merseyside) — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Oct 2016)

Mike Kane: ...the mercy of rising pressures and pupil numbers, and the impact of inflation on its true value. With inflation today rising to a two-year high and many predicting it will rise again in the wake of Brexit—particularly a chaotic Brexit without single market access, which is the course we are pursuing—schools are facing real-term cuts. We have already warned that the Government’s...
