25 Years of Devolution in Wales — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (28 Mar 2023)

James Davies: My hon. Friend makes a strong argument. In fact, he will be aware that one of the Labour Members in the Senedd called for greater powers and autonomy for north Wales in response to the recent roads review, and today a representative of the business community in north Wales has called for a directly elected mayor for north Wales. It comes back to my point that devolution should be true in...

Baroness Katy Clark: We know that 128,000 people have signed a petition to the United Kingdom Government calling for the creation of a statutory legal duty of care for students in higher education.

Home Education — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (27 Mar 2023)

Andrew Selous: I am extremely grateful to my hon. Friend, who raises a very important point. I have seen exactly that in my constituency: school-age children in and out of shops in the middle of the day. My area is also subject to the terrible scourge of county lines. There are huge safeguarding and criminal concerns about what is happening to some of these children, and we need to take them seriously. My...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Students: Death (27 Mar 2023)

Mike Freer: Every student death is a tragedy. Where a student’s death is investigated by the coroner, it may be appropriate for the higher education provider to have “interested person” status in the investigation and, where this is the case, would be provided with the Record of Inquest which includes the cause of death.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (16 Mar 2023)

Christian Wakeford: ...Budget for health, but it was not. This could have been a budget for justice, but it was not. This could have been a Budget for growth, but it really was not. This could also have been a Budget for education, but guess what? It was not. What we got was a sticking-plaster Budget from a Government on life support. There was nothing for public sector workers, nothing to tackle court backlogs,...

Munira Wilson: It is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is a pleasure to follow the right hon.

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill (27 Feb 2023)

Aaron Bell: I am not sure whether my right hon. Friend was in the Chamber earlier when I intervened on the Secretary of State on precisely that point. This comes with a four-year entitlement.

The flexible loan is...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 4 - Civil claims (7 Feb 2023)

Paul Blomfield: I rise to oppose the motion to disagree with Lords amendment 10. There ought to be a basis for cross-party agreement, as there was in the Lords. I sense from many of the contributions so far that there will not be cross-party agreement, and that wiser heads are not prevailing on the Conservative Benches—those wiser heads are being kept below the parapet. I read the letter that the Minister...

Business of the House (2 Feb 2023)

Penny Mordaunt: I start by echoing the many sympathies and sentiments that hon. Members have expressed at the sad death of firefighter Barry Martin.

Immigration Fees for Healthcare Workers — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (30 Jan 2023)

Rob Roberts: ...) said earlier, the cost is £420-odd to process these things. I will come to the fees in a minute, but there cannot be any justification for that cost.
