South Manchester Transport Infrastructure — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

William Wragg: I am also aware of the memorably titled SEMMMS project. Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the main causes of road congestion in Stockport is the lack of an A6 bypass from Hazel Grove to Bredbury, which would join with the M60? If she does, will she urge the Minister to consider that project for future funding?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Sex and Relationship Education (22 Jul 2016)

EU Referendum Rules — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (5 Sep 2016)

William Wragg: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I assume the applause upon my standing was not for me. I am sorry to start my speech on such a downbeat note, but I feel I must express regret at the levels of intolerance that have crept into the public discourse on Brexit, both before the referendum and even more so since. Intolerance in the form of racism and xenophobia is...

EU Referendum Rules — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (5 Sep 2016)

William Wragg: Indeed, it is five. My hon. Friend is more learned on the matter. People seem to have got stuck somewhere around stage three and now oscillate wildly between denial, anger and bargaining. I could stand here and, perhaps rather churlishly, tell those who want a second referendum or to block article 50, whenever that might come about in the fullness of time, that they should pull themselves...

Educational Performance: Boys (6 Sep 2016)

William Wragg: On that note of support at home, does my hon. Friend agree that one of the issues is with parents’ confidence in their own literacy? Reading to their children can be quite intimidating if their own standards of literacy are poor. Is it not therefore necessary for the Government to focus on that area to address the early years?

Petition - Royal Mail Delivery Office in Marple (6 Sep 2016)

William Wragg: I rise to present petitions relating to keeping Royal Mail delivery offices open in Marple and Bredbury. The two offices are currently being reviewed by Royal Mail with a view to their potential closure, yet they enable local residents to collect parcels and items of mail, provide a service that is vitally convenient and employ dozens of local people. Unfortunately, the nearest alternative...

Schools that Work for Everyone (12 Sep 2016)

William Wragg: As a comprehensive schoolboy, may I commend my right hon. Friend for her bold new departure? Will she ensure, however, that at all times the language used by the Government focuses on people’s aptitudes rather than solely on their academic ability? I believe that, in that way, there are no losers; instead, all talents are championed and pupils are fulfilled.

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

William Wragg: I am pleased to be able to speak on Second Reading of the Bill, which I broadly welcome. I support its main aims of making the housing market work better for everybody, helping to identify and free up more land to build homes, and speeding up the delivery of the new homes that are so badly needed in many areas of the country. Those aspects of the Bill will help to improve the planning system...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

William Wragg: The hon. Gentleman raises an important point. That is something that my local authority in Stockport is looking at, to ensure it can use its land assets for the development of housing, so I agree with him on that. One thing missing from the Bill, although certainly not from our debate this evening, is the issue of the green belt. We know that green-belt land is protected under the Town and...
