Canlyniadau 121–140 o 486 ar gyfer speaker:Ben Howlett

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Public interest governance condition (15 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: The hon. Gentleman makes a very good case for open and transparent processes in relation to vice-chancellors’ pay. I have a lot of sympathy with him about that. However, is he aware that this Government have already introduced gender pay gap reporting? For the institutions he mentions, the amendment would simply mean a duplication of legislation. We should look at enhancing the current...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Public interest governance condition (15 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Will my hon. Friend give assurances, however—I agree this should not be put in the Bill—that he will work with the new OFS to ask them to look at remuneration, and also make sure that transparency is at the very heart of the OFS in relation to remuneration?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: The Fee Limit (15 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: It sounds as though the hon. Gentleman is listening to other evidence than what we heard. He talks about evidence from the vice-chancellors, so let me quote one of the vice-chancellors who has given evidence. Ed Peck of Nottingham Trent University says: “Linking increases in student fees to performance under the TEF is a further safeguard for students, one that has now been largely accepted...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Apprentices (15 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps her Department is taking to ensure that apprenticeships are undertaken by people in less affluent households.

NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans (14 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: It is a pleasure to follow some very hard-working and committed campaigners on health issues, particularly my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy), who has done so much to champion the NHS. I join him in thanking all NHS staff members across the country, who work incredibly hard day in, day out. A lot of them do not get the thanks they deserve. Compared with some Members, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (14 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: The sustainable development goals that were agreed in 2015 are crucial to ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change by 2030. What is the Secretary of State doing to implement those goals in the United Kingdom?

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Syria: Refugees (14 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what progress she is making on ensuring that Syrian refugee children in that region receive an education; and what her plans are to follow up the outcomes of the London Conference in February 2016 at the next UN General Assembly meeting.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: EU Referendum: Discussions with Business (13 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: What steps his Department has taken to engage with British businesses since the EU referendum.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: EU Referendum: Discussions with Business (13 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: I thank the Secretary of State for his answer, and I welcome the whole team to the new Department. The aerospace industry is absolutely vital to the west of England economy not just for jobs, but for growth. Will the Secretary of State work with me to ensure that the entire aerospace industry receives the support it requires and deserves?

Schools that Work for Everyone (12 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: I welcome the Secretary of State’s and the Prime Minister’s commitment to opening education up for everyone and leaving nobody behind, but, having conducted research on this issue and asked the Library, I have found no evidence, thus far, to suggest that social mobility is improved as a result of opening up new grammar schools. What evidence has the Secretary of State got that she will...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Apprentices (12 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will take steps to simplify the application process for securing an apprenticeship.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: The Office for Students ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Does the hon. Gentleman realise that this already exists? My hon. Friend the Member for Bury St Edmunds and I have just sat on the pre-appointment process for the selection of the Equality and Human Rights Commission chairman. Select Committees already do this, and legislation is not necessarily needed to implement it.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: The Office for Students ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: I appreciate that the hon. Gentleman is withdrawing his amendment, but some of the examples he has cited show that student representation can be looked at by one of the committees provided for in schedule 1. If he tables further amendments on student representation, surely he should look at that at a committee level, rather than board level.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: The Office for Students ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: The Care Quality Commission was mentioned earlier. There is no patient on the board of that organisation to represent the views of patients, because things evolve quickly. How does the hon. Gentleman want student voices to be engaged more effectively? The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, which the Labour party requested give oral evidence to the Committee, provided a probably...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witness ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q What benefit will this Bill have for the most disadvantaged in society?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q Before I come to my substantive question, the National Union of Students has been campaigning to give evidence at these sessions. For the record, why has the NUS sent a vice-president, not the actual president?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q Don’t get me wrong, I have worked with the NUS for a long time, and it has been a productive relationship, but this is a serious Bill and not to have the president here—

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q I think that is a bit of a shame but, obviously, the president is not here in person at the moment. Moving on to my more substantive point, do you welcome the measures in the Bill that open up alternative student finance?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: At our last evidence sessions, we talked about the importance of diversity and participation on the teaching side, but it is incredibly important for the research element as well. There have been great strides in relation to Athena SWAN—scientific women’s academic network—projects and so on across the country. However, specifically in relation to this Bill and in research, how does this...
