Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
25th Mar 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what support they plan to provide to charities and the voluntary sector to protect elderly people from being attacked in their homes by people who gain entrance on false pretences, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Public safety and protecting the most vulnerable people in society from coronavirus is this government’s top priority. The Government has prepared ‘how to help safely’ guidance on Gov.uk to advise individuals and charities how they can help those isolating - including friends, family members and neighbours. This guidance is also accessible for the new Covid Mutual Aid groups that have been set up in response to the crisis. These pages have been accessed over 174,000 times since publication.

Genuine volunteers have been instructed not to enter people’s homes, unless deemed essential. We advise that vulnerable people take general precautions such as asking for ID, not sharing financial details and, if in doubt, do not engage and report serious suspicious behaviour to the police.

Baroness Barran
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Education)
25th Mar 2020
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether the provision of online tuition adequately educates those children and young people, particularly those who live in poverty or who are otherwise vulnerable, who are not in school due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since Friday 20 March, schools have been closed except for children of critical workers and vulnerable children. Attending school can be a protective factor, which is why vulnerable children are eligible for continued provision.

We recognise that many schools have already shared resources for children who are at home, and are grateful for this.

We are working with the BBC and other partners to provide access and support directly to parents, including online resources they can access for their children at home, and my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education has announced a package of high-quality resources:

We will consider accessibility throughout the development of any advice, and ask that schools do the same.
