On NHS pay in England, it says: “We were told by the Health Departments ... that a 1 per cent pay award is funded” and “it is clear that a pay award higher than 1 per cent would require trade-offs in terms of service levels, investment decisions and potentially staff numbers, with associated implications for workload and pressures on staff and...

Anas Sarwar: ...a genuine thank you to Emma Harper and to all those people across the country who dedicate their lives to our national health service.

Neil Findlay: ...the areas of most need, by extending free school meals provision and breakfast clubs and by investing in early years education, mental health support and targeted support for vulnerable families.

Lord Bilimoria: ...further, there is a unanimous consensus around the country—let alone in this House, where we won this amendment by close to 100 votes—that international students should not be included in the net migration figures. The National Union of Students has stated: “We are concerned that—as long as international students are included within net migration...

James Duddridge: .... The airport does not do Brussels, however, but it does do Europe. Will the Minister, on his re-election, agree to come to Southend to discuss how a new, emboldened Britain can do the European Union and the country a good job globally with trade with all nation states?

Exiting the European Union: Financial Services Industry (27 Apr 2017)
