Thomas Cook Customers (5 Nov 2019)

Bill Esterson: ...and Scandinavia were, if the liquidation had been delayed? Why did the Government not listen to those calling for intervention?

Adult Learning and Vocational Skills: Metropolitan Borough of Dudley (1 Oct 2019)

Gordon Marsden: ...to put on courses that cut across the generations, and across other things too. That is a real issue. The hon. Lady rightly said that adult learners are down 40% since 2010 and that skills gaps and digital gaps remain, despite her work as a Minister and that of others. Those things will be critical in the 2020s. She is also right to mention underspending local enterprise partnerships; when...
