Cop27 ( 9 Nov 2022)

Theresa May: zero by 2050 to tackle climate change. He is absolutely right to talk about the creation of high-skilled, high-wage green jobs as we green our economy, but people need the training, skills and education to be able to take on those jobs. What are the Government’s plans on education and training for green skills?

Cumberlege Report — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] ( 3 Feb 2022)

Theresa May: ...are just about funding and monetary compensation, but people who have suffered as a result of these issues need other sorts of support given to them—for example, support for children with special educational needs. Redress is wider than monetary compensation, which is often what Government think about. Recommendation 9 is to set up a taskforce. The patient reference group is a good idea...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Theresa May: ...ensure that we have the green skills of the future, which means that the issue involves not just the Treasury and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy but the Department for Education. It is about ensuring that at every stage in our education system we prepare people for the jobs of the future and ensure that they have green skills. There were a lot of references to...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Theresa May: ...that the Government are putting directly into these areas; it is also about ensuring that our whole Government, on a cross-Government basis, understand the importance of this issue. That includes education. I had a positive meeting with the Secretary of State for Education earlier this week on that and other issues. So it is a cross-Government exercise and it needs to be understood as...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Theresa May: ...they had been denied under the Taliban. Twenty years on, 457 British military personnel have died in Afghanistan, and many more have suffered life-changing injuries. Yes, many girls have been educated because of British aid, but it is not just that the freedoms once enjoyed will now be taken away; many, many Afghans—not just those who worked with British forces—are now in fear of their...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Theresa May: ...Afghanistan who not only fear that their lives will be irrevocably changed for the worse, but fear for their lives. Numbered among them will be women—women who embraced freedom and the right to education, to work and to participate in the political process. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister was right to make the education of girls a key aim of his Administration, but in Afghanistan...

International Aid: Treasury Update (13 Jul 2021)

Theresa May: ...aid was falling in any case. To reduce it from 0.7% to 0.5% is a double blow. This is not about palaces for dictators and vanity projects; it is about what cuts to funding mean: fewer girls will be educated, more girls and boys will become slaves, more children will go hungry and more of the poorest people in the world will die. The Government have promised what they see as a compromise,...

Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review ( 8 Jul 2021)

Theresa May: But redress is about far more than compensation. It is about relating to the real impact that the use of these medicines and medical devices has had on people, such as the need for special education for children who have been affected because their mothers have taken sodium valproate when pregnant. There are many other examples. I urge the Government to look again at that issue. I...

Official Development Assistance and the British Council (30 Jun 2021)

Theresa May: ...often an holistic matter, and these things cannot just be looked at in silos. To give just one example of this, our right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is rightly very keen to encourage girls’ education around the world. It has been a theme of Conservative Governments now for some considerable time. We have taken it up in G7 meetings, and we have encouraged others around the world to...

Official Development Assistance and the British Council (30 Jun 2021)

Theresa May: ...done. It does appear that they have just cut in silos. We see, for example, that the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery has an 80% cut in its funding and there is a 25% cut in funding for girls’ education, but these are linked. I urge the Government to look at those links. I want to note that, in their response to the fourth special report of the Select Committee, in late September — 28...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (11 May 2021)

Theresa May: ..., as my hon. Friend the Member for Kensington (Felicity Buchan) indicated earlier, lies at the heart of what we believe in as Conservatives: the concept of everybody having the opportunity of an education throughout their life and developing their skills, and a Government who create the environment in which jobs are created. That is core conservativism. We believe that people should be...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Theresa May: ...prosperity for the future. On the subject of ideas, I should say that people are very important. The Augar review, published about a year ago, set out very clearly the need to invest in further education, so I welcome the investment in further education in the Budget. I also want to touch on something referenced by the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) in his...

Domestic Abuse Bill ( 2 Oct 2019)

Theresa May: ...welcome. It has to be done carefully, but we should not shy away from it, because if we wish to see an end to domestic abuse, we have to deal with perpetrators. That goes alongside issues such as education on what a good relationship is, so that we see those sorts of behaviours being stopped at the first sign, rather than being allowed to continue. Some might say that the last point I want...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: Obviously, I always look at Select Committee reports with care. I commissioned the Augar review of post-18 education funding, and that review has been very clear that more money needs to go into further education and into sixth forms. I want to see that happening. Indeed, I think that, just as my Government have given a priority to the national health service in looking at funding for the...

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

Theresa May: ...About 50,000 disadvantaged children in 11 local authority areas will be offered free meals and activities over the summer holidays. That is going to be funded by £9 million from the Department for Education. We had a good programme last year, and we are expanding that programme this year because we want to help children, wherever they are, receive the right support in school and out.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: .... You buy a home; they want you to pay more tax. You want to leave something to your children; they want you to pay more tax—Labour’s £9 billion family tax. Labour used to have a slogan of “Education, education, education”; now, it is just “Tax, tax, tax. Injustice, injustice, injustice.”

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: As the hon. Lady knows, we are already putting more money into our schools. We are already putting more funding into special educational needs. I recognise the importance of ensuring that special educational needs are properly catered for, and that the needs of those children can be properly supported. That is why I am proud of the fact that we have been putting more money into our schools....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: has received as a good school and Brize Norton Primary in his constituency, which was rated outstanding. It shows that smaller schools in rural areas can provide an excellent quality of education and that the academy movement can provide for those schools and those children. It goes back to the point I made earlier: what matters is the quality of education our children receive, and in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: ...last Labour Government. It helps people into the workplace and ensures that, as they earn more, they are able to keep more of that money. On the back of the Augar review, which looked at post-18 education, I have indicated that I think it is important that we ensure that our further education colleges are funded and are able to provide an alternative route through education for those young...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 3 Jul 2019)

Theresa May: ...cause she has championed for some considerable time, both before and since she came into this House. I am proud that more than 850,000 disadvantaged two-year-olds have benefited from the free early education places that we introduced in 2013. Our social mobility action plan sets out a clear and ambitious plan for the early years, closing the word gap at age five, and we want to ensure that...
