Rishi Sunak: Will my hon. Friend tell my constituents what this Government will continue to do to cut the costs of childcare for hard-working families?
Rishi Sunak: As the Prime Minister mentioned, access to high-quality broadband is essential in today’s digital economy. Will my right hon. Friend tell us about his plans to get broadband to my rural constituents and those in rural areas across the country?
Rishi Sunak: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what steps his Department is taking to support the economy in the North of England.
Rishi Sunak: The last Labour Government had an appalling record on regulation, introducing something like six new regulations a day. What does my right hon. Friend think that did for the productivity of small and medium-sized companies in the UK?
Rishi Sunak: I am blessed to be the father of two young daughters. Will my right hon. Friend update the House on the initiative “Your Daughter’s Future”, and explain how it is helping parents like me and, perhaps, many other Members to enable our children to make subject choices that will give them access to the best possible careers?
Rishi Sunak: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what progress the Government has made on integrating and improving care provided outside of hospitals.
Rishi Sunak: Last week, Reeth medical centre in my constituency received an “outstanding” Care Quality Commission rating. Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating it and recognise that small practices in rural areas are still an important part of our healthcare system?
That Sarah Champion, Chris Davies, Jim Fitzpatrick, Harry Harpham, Simon Hart, Dr Paul Monaghan, Rebecca Pow, Ms Margaret Ritchie, David Simpson and Rishi Sunak be members of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee.
Rishi Sunak: The shadow Chancellor mentioned the election campaign. In that campaign, the Opposition suggested that they would raise the rate of corporation tax—a move that would damage jobs and growth. Will he confirm that that is still Labour’s policy, or will he start backing British businesses?
Rishi Sunak: What plans he has to strengthen the armed forces covenant.
Rishi Sunak: What progress he has made on his deficit reduction plans.
Rishi Sunak: What progress her Department is making on providing fairer funding for schools.
Rishi Sunak: I agree with my hon. Friend. In today’s world, it is important that we maintain a competitive economy and increase employment, and having trade union legislation that is updated for that modern economy is vital if trade unions are to ensure their relevance in today’s economy.
Rishi Sunak: The difference would be that a company cannot just take money from shareholders, give it to political parties and ask shareholders to opt out; they have to acquire active shareholder consent. Unions today do not have to do that. Do you think that balance is right?
Rishi Sunak: To both of you.
Rishi Sunak: Am I right in thinking that it is helpful, then? The Metropolitan police ask for as much information as possible.
