Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: ...people with learning disabilities. They have potential and the ability to live independently, but all too often they have been parked. My hon. Friends the Members for Henley (John Howell) and for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) outlined examples of where, with some support, people with learning disabilities can lead very productive lives, but it requires support and investment. Sadly,...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Robert Goodwill: ...a UTC, even if the abilities and aspirations of that child would be best served in a UTC. We have a successful UTC in my constituency, working with local employers who are keen to have people leaving the UTC job-ready. Indeed, many see apprenticeships as the fast route into employment without the debt and problems that a university education can bring. Throughout and after education, we...

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Mark Harper: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising that point. He knows—not everyone in the Chamber will—that Swindon is my home town. I actually did my A-levels at Swindon College, so I am particularly pleased to hear that that institution is still delivering opportunities. The opportunities that I got at a comprehensive school in Swindon and at Swindon College meant that I was the...

Universal Credit — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Damian Hinds: ...debate. We have had a wide-ranging debate today. Let me be clear at the outset that the roll-out of universal credit continues to plan. As Members are aware, universal credit is now in every jobcentre in the country. The programme has just passed an important milestone of more than 1 million claims. The service has been deliberately rolled out in a steady way, as alluded to by some of my...

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill [Lords]: Franchising schemes (14 Mar 2017)

Andrew Jones: this provision. I remind the Committee that those operators have prospered in a competitive market in which many other municipal bus companies have struggled. Only last month, Thamesdown Transport in Swindon was sold to the private sector after what I understand was a prolonged period of losses. I have seen the good work done by municipal bus companies. They regularly do extremely well...

Intergenerational Fairness (28 Feb 2017)

Richard Harrington: say that the level of opting out is low at the moment, but that is not a cause for complacency. While several hon. Members made this point, I want to highlight what my hon. Friend the Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) said about apprenticeships and UTCs, which are crucial for the future. As the Prime Minister’s apprenticeship adviser when the pledge for 3 million...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Commencement and short title (21 Feb 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: I rise just to confirm that Swindon is benefiting from huge economic growth and a fall in unemployment of more than 60% since 2010 and that 8,100 more people are in jobs. I would welcome any businesses that want to relocate to a growing, successful Swindon.

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local Retention of Non-Domestic Rates (7 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: ...from council tax and business rates–there is very limited potential for growth in the medium term to offset these huge reductions” in revenue support grant and new homes bonus. In the new Jerusalem of the hon. Member for North Swindon, everything will be all right in his constituency, but we know from those at the sharp end in Waveney that the situation will be much tougher....

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: ...responsibility for the place and the people who live there. They have always been champions of investment and growth—not for the sake of business rates, but because that is right for the people who live there; it creates jobs, improves the local environment and, hopefully, provides better wages for the people who live there, so why would a local authority not want to promote that and...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Heidi Alexander: ...I cannot do that, because as the reality of Brexit Britain emerges over the next few years, I want to have acted in line with my conscience. I fear for our economy. I fear for the livelihoods and living standards of my constituents. I also worry for jobs in Swindon, the town where I grew up and a place with a big Honda plant whose supply chain spans Europe. Yes, we might make some gains as...

Industrial Strategy Consultation (23 Jan 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: This is a very welcome and ambitious Green Paper. In Swindon, we have embraced development to attract new businesses and jobs, but to be able to reach our full potential, we need to unlock additional land and infrastructure funding quickly. How can that process be speeded up?

DWP Estate — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (18 Jan 2017)

Margaret Greenwood: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that contribution. The comments from the hon. Member for North Swindon were totally relevant, then. It is immensely important that the DWP estate is managed with due respect for the impact that any changes might have on claimants, their families, their communities and those who work there. For those who work there, the concerns are about job losses, the down-...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy: DWP Policies and Low-income Households (17 Jan 2017)

Rebecca Harris: ...are 2.7 million more people in employment now than when we first assumed office in 2010. No one could have predicted that, and it is an astonishing achievement. My hon. Friend the Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) mentioned one of the statistics of which I am most proud: we now have the lowest number of children in workless households since records began. We should make no...

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: ...our local communities, which is fantastic. There is also the issue of maturity, of building young people’s life skills that are important in transitioning from school into the real world and securing first jobs. The NCS logo is “NCS Yes”, which genuinely refers to the opportunities for those who apply. I noticed from the graduation ceremonies just how proud parents are in...

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

Mike Kane: ...draw, and there was no love lost between the two teams when we came off the pitch. It is a pleasure, as ever, to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) on securing the debate. Why he is not in Government, I do not know. I thought that he did an extraordinarily good job with disability confidence in the last Parliament....

Technical and Further Education Bill: Education administration: transfer schemes (9 Jan 2017)

Robert Halfon: ..., creating a ladder of opportunity for all. These include a transformation of prestige and culture; widespread, high-quality provision; a system that addresses our skills needs; social justice; and job security and prosperity. The Bill seeks to build those priorities into our system, bringing to life the fundamental reforms needed to ensure that we have a skills and education system that...

CrossCountry Trains: Gloucester (20 Dec 2016)

Richard Graham:, particularly aerospace and automobile. Also, the future of tidal lagoon power will potentially be headquartered in the city. But like other small cities, our ratio of private to public sector jobs is low—Gloucester ranks 56th out of 62 cities in Centre for Cities research—and we have one of the lowest rates of private sector job growth. Under the Governments since...

Savings (Government Contributions) Bill: Welfare Cap (12 Dec 2016)

Ian Blackford: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson). He has been a loyal supporter of the Government from the Back Benches during the past few months, and it sounds very much as though he is putting in a job application to the Prime Minister as much as to anyone else—[Interruption.] Well, you never know. Another breach of the cap calls into question what its...

ESA and Personal Independence Payments — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (30 Nov 2016)

Neil Gray: employ people who are in a similar position. I hope that the Minister will reflect on that. I listened carefully, as I always do, to the contribution of the former Minister, the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson). He gave a stout defence of the Government and of his own record in government. As always, I want to be as constructive and as consensual as possible, but I must...
