No. 21

The House met at 2.30 pm.

PRAYERS.

1 Questions to the Secretary of State for Defence

2 Statement: Severe weather (transport and services) (Mr Sadiq Khan)

3 Children, Schools and Families Bill: Second Reading

    Motion made and Question proposed, That the Children, Schools and Families Bill be now read a second time.

    Amendment moved, to leave out from 'That' to the end of the Question and add 'this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Children, Schools and Families Bill because it adds hugely to the bureaucratic burdens on schools and colleges without improving real opportunities and educational standards for pupils and without genuinely empowering parents; its proposals for the regulation of home education introduce powers which are excessive and risk undermining key freedoms for home educators; it fails to put in place a coherent system for delivering school improvement; its provisions on family proceedings have not been properly consulted on and do not take account of existing reforms; and it does not include much needed policies to introduce a Pupil Premium to support the education of children from disadvantaged homes or to establish a new Educational Standards Authority to restore confidence in educational standards and to reduce the extent of destabilising political interference in English education.'.—(Mr David Laws.)
