Written Answers — Department for International Development: Developing Countries: Education (22 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: Every child has a right to a good quality education. DFID’s education policy Get Children Learning makes clear that the state is the guarantor of quality basic education for all, but need not be the sole financer or provider of education services. This is the position we will continue to a) promote to partner countries and b) reinforce publicly. We welcome the focus in the UN Special...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Development: Ebola Virus Disease Outbreak: Update on UK Response (18 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: It is nearly a year since the declaration of the tenth Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This is the second largest Ebola outbreak and the first in a conflict zone. The risks remain very high.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Climate Change (17 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: The distinction traditionally made between development, environment and climate is a false distinction. Unless we tackle climate change, there will be 100 million more people living in poverty in the next 15 years. I returned this morning from New York, where I have been discussing with the Secretary-General of the United Nations our commitment to greening our development spending to ensure...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: The central challenge in international development going forward will be the quality, expertise and number of our permanent staff on the ground. As international development becomes more complex, with conflict and climate, as we have to work more closely with other Departments and, above all, in a world in which developing countries are looking not for money, but for expertise, over the next...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jul 2019)

Rachel Maclean: Will the Prime Minister join me in congratulating Ian Jukes and our local community in Redditch for raising nearly £500,000 for the Rory the Robot appeal to fund the prostate surgery robot in Worcestershire? However, despite all the hard work by the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, the specialist commissioners have not approved the business case yet. Will she use her legacy, in her...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: *No heading* (17 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: We are one of the largest bilateral donors to education globally Between 2015 and 2019 we supported 14.3 million children to gain a decent education of which at least 5.8m were girls. DFID’s focus is on ensuring that children have access to a quality education. My ambition is that DFID increases the number of its education specialists in the field to support the major shift required in...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: *No heading* (17 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: I share the hon Gentleman’s concerns about the reports of poor conditions and overcrowding in US detention facilities on the border with Mexico. I very much welcome the steps already taken by the Administration and Congress to address these issues, including the emergency funding signed off by the President on 1 July. These are difficult issues, and the UK has also struggled sometimes to...

Counter-Daesh Update (3 Jul 2019)

Rory Stewart: The shadow Secretary of State has touched on a number of issues, stretching from the Kurdish community to Daesh online. I shall try to deal with them in turn. What I think is at the heart of the answers to all these questions is that the only way in which we will be able to resolve the problems is through a proper political settlement. Many of the issues raised by the shadow Secretary of...

Knife Crime - Motion to Take Note (27 Jun 2019)

Baroness Hamwee: ...have so often made clear from these Benches, as my noble friend Lord Dholakia did today, our views on short sentences. I do not suppose that it will now harm the career prospects of David Gauke or Rory Stewart if I express my appreciation of them. Does stop and search work? We are not keen on Section 60 powers and are therefore concerned about how the community reacts to the new pilots....
