Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 34 (29 Mar 2011)

Julie Hilling: ...do they intend to go? This part of the Bill takes away what I consider to be safeguards for parents and children. We know how easy it is to have covert selection. We have to ask why, nationally, faith schools have fewer pupils on free school meals than non-faith schools. One faith school that I know of told parents that if their child had an SEN statement, which would of course attract...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 30 (29 Mar 2011)

Pat Glass: I am incredibly concerned about this. The explanatory notes state that relevant partners—school being one of them— “will be able to decide for themselves how to engage in arrangements” for children’s well-being. Basically, that leaves it up to individual schools to decide for themselves how they engage with local authorities, health services, the police,...

Michael Gove: ...means that our children need to be better educated than ever. Sadly, however, we have been falling behind other nations in our educational performance.

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Mar 2011)

...and the House. There are issues such as passported benefits that I think you were referring to. Most of these lie beyond the scope of the Department so we have to resolve some of these issues like free school meals. There are several issues that are not directly in our control but, interestingly, historically they use our benefit figures to set their own payments. So what we will do and...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform Bill (22 Mar 2011)

...they do at present. We do not know how passported benefits will be dealt with under the system. It is likely that there may be some cliff edges introduced, for example if large families have all their free school meals reduced at a certain point, or if people who are disabled have large amounts of prescription charge refunds taken away from their benefits at a fixed income level.
