Education: School Budgets (24 Jun 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: The funding crisis for schools in Bath is getting worse and worse. For example, one school has not employed a new teaching assistant in three years and another has only one teaching assistant for every 102 pupils. Only two weeks ago, teachers and parents went on a huge march in Bath to express their alarm about the threat to their children’s education. What can the Minister say to them?

She is welcome to join the Justice Committee. I am pleased to hear that the Minister wants inclusive courts, but he needs to take note of the lack of data on the impact of court closures. Any future court closures will...

Wera Hobhouse: The Minister knows that Bath has a considerable air pollution problem. Idling cars make a measurable contribution to inner-city pollution.

Scottish Parliament: Planning (Scotland) Bill (20 Jun 2019)

Kenneth Gibson: ...status quo. I am struggling to understand how they can believe that, given what we have been through over the past 18 months or so of the process. They clearly want to throw the baby out with the bath water. We have now arrived at a more coherent, fair and inclusive system that will work for Scotland. I urge all members to vote in favour of the bill at decision time.

History Curriculum: Migration — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (18 Jun 2019)

Helen Hayes: ...that story. Migration has shaped not only individual family stories, but places and communities. The town where I grew up, Ormskirk in Lancashire, has a Viking name. We have Roman cities such as Bath; cities such as Liverpool and Bristol with links to the shameful history of slavery; and Spitalfields, which has been formed, shaped and sustained by successive generations of migrants, as is...

EU/British Citizens’ Rights (18 Jun 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: I stay in close contact with members of the3million in my Bath constituency and understand their real anxieties, particularly in respect of vulnerable and elderly EU citizens who do not have access to computers and are not particularly computer-savvy.

Older Persons: Provision of Public Services - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2019)

Baroness Pitkeathley: ...public, not private finance. The needs of individuals cannot be divided neatly into either health or social care needs—as those of us who have tried to fathom the difference between a “health bath” and a “social care bath” have long acknowledged. We must embark on a frank and open debate on how to fund health and social care on a sustainable basis into the future, and remind...

Hong Kong (13 Jun 2019)

Emily Thornberry: ...recent years, which has not been as clear and robust as just set out by the Minister of State. I am not the only one making that indictment.

He...

Theatre Market - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port: ..., I can recommend having older sons who save money to take their parents to see “Hamilton”. Soon I shall go to see “Small Island”. And what about Nottingham, Scarborough, Stoke-on-Trent and Bath as places that have fostered theatre in areas outside London, with some most inventive programmes? In all these ways, my hope would be that a debate of this kind would direct our attention...

Children’s Health: Vehicle Emissions - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: Britain are in areas that breach World Health Organization guidelines. In part, that is the result of idling engines. We have head a great deal about that.

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Andrew Stephenson: .... My great aunt Daisy and great uncle Tom spent most of their working lives at the National Coal Board in Team Valley in Gateshead.

I do not know whether anyone here has ever tried going through those locks on a barge—one has to be quite fit. Of course, the cathedral city of...

Clare Adamson: ...injury that could restrict the movement of a young child as they grow older, making a lifelong change to outcomes for that young person. We also have to be very vigilant about hot drinks and hot bath water. One of the most frightening experiences for a parent is when breathing stops.
