30 Sep 2020, 11:16 a.m. Pupils: Counselling Nickie Aiken (Conservative - Cities of London and Westminster)

Question to the Department for Education:

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will (a) provide access to counselling for all children in secondary schools and (b) extend access to counselling in further education colleges.

Answered by Vicky Ford - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Education)

It is important for schools and colleges to have the freedom to decide what support to offer pupils based on their particular needs and drawing on an evidence base of effective practice. Our survey of mental health provision in schools and colleges in 2016 and 2017 found that 61% of schools and colleges (56% of primary schools, 84% of secondary schools and 93% of colleges) reported offering a counselling service for their pupils.

The department have published guidance on how to put in place effective school-based counselling, which schools can use to identify where further counselling support is appropriate for their pupils. The guidance is available at:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/counselling-in-schools.

As children and young people return to school and college, staff need to be equipped to understand that some pupils may be experiencing feelings, such as anxiety, stress or low mood, as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, that these are normal responses to an abnormal situation, and how to respond.

From September, the government is investing £8 million to launch the new Wellbeing for Education Return training programme, which will provide schools and colleges all over England with the knowledge and practical skills they need to support teachers, students and parents, to help improve how they respond to the emotional impact of the COIVD-19 outbreak. The programme is providing £8 million to local authorities to enable schools and colleges in England to have access to training during the autumn and spring terms, and expert advisers who will be able to support schools and colleges and can make links to available local authority provision, including counselling.

We have worked hard to ensure that all pupils and learners were able to return to a full
high-quality education programme in September. Our £1 billion COVID-19 catch-up package, with £650 million shared across schools over the 2020-21 academic year, is supporting education settings to put the right catch-up and pastoral support in place.

In further education, the department has provided £5.4 million of competitive grant funding to certain colleges through the College Collaboration Fund. Five of the projects funded support student and staff mental health and wellbeing through online programmes and remote support.

Outside of school and college, access to mental health support has been more important than ever during the COVID-19 outbreak. Leading mental health charities are being supported to deliver additional services through the £5 million Coronavirus Mental Health Response Fund. During Mental Health Awareness Week, the government also announced that a further
£4.2 million will be awarded to mental health charities, including the Samaritans, Young Minds, and Bipolar UK.

All NHS mental health trusts have ensured that there are 24/7 open access telephone lines to support people of all ages. Public Health England and Health Education England have also developed advice and guidance for parents and professionals on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing, which is available at:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-supporting-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-and-wellbeing.

In the long-term, we remain committed to our joint green paper delivery programme with the Department of Health and Social Care and the NHS England. This includes introducing new mental health support teams linked to schools and colleges, providing training for senior mental health leads in schools and colleges, and testing approaches to faster access to NHS specialist support.

29 Sep 2020, 5:49 p.m. Exhibitions: Coronavirus Nickie Aiken (Conservative - Cities of London and Westminster)

Question to the Department for International Trade:

To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, if she will make an assessment of the potential merits of extending the international exhibitor funding scheme to domestic events as a result of the covid-19 outbreak.

Answered by Graham Stuart - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade)

The Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) is designed to assist UK companies in learning about overseas tradeshows and how they can be used to help a business’s export development plans.

The Department for International Trade is currently reviewing TAP and looking at a number of possible changes to the support it will offer in the future.

24 Sep 2020, 12:09 p.m. Travel Agents: Coronavirus Nickie Aiken (Conservative - Cities of London and Westminster)

Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, pursuant to the Answer of 14 September 2020 to Question 87582 on Travel Agents: Coronavirus, what support his Department is providing to travel agents whose focus is on inbound travel from (a) the US and (b) other countries.

Answered by Paul Scully - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)

The Government recognises the travel sector has been particularly hard hit by COVID-19, and we know quarantine measures are having an impact on inbound travel, but the measures are necessary to mitigate the risk of imported cases.

Businesses in the travel sector whose focus is on inbound travel have access to the Government extensive support package previously mentioned, including the Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme, the business interruption loan schemes, VAT deferrals and cash grants of up to £25,000 for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses.

11 Sep 2020, 1:50 p.m. Exports: VAT Nickie Aiken (Conservative - Cities of London and Westminster)

Question to the HM Treasury:

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what activities the HMRC Policy Lab has undertaken in its research on the digitalisation of the VAT Retail Export Scheme; and which companies and organisations they have (a) met and (b) observed as part of that research.

Answered by Jesse Norman - Financial Secretary (HM Treasury)

The HMRC Policy Lab carried out site visits, observed processes and conducted interviews and surveys in relation to the VAT Retail Export Scheme. This involved a wide variety of stakeholders including Border Force, retailers, VAT refund providers, refund agents, airport operators and shoppers. This research took place in parallel with a consultation on tax-free and duty-free goods.

After reviewing the long-term approach to tax-free goods as part of that consultation, the Government announced today that the VAT Retail Export Scheme would be withdrawn from 1 January 2021 and would therefore not be digitised or extended to EU residents.

Question to the HM Treasury:

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, when the digitalisation of the VAT Retail Export Scheme, announced in 2016, will be completed.

Answered by Jesse Norman - Financial Secretary (HM Treasury)

The Government continued to explore the potential digitisation of the VAT Retail Export Scheme in parallel with the consultation on the approach to duty-free and tax-free goods in Great Britain. There were a range of views submitted and the Government has today published a summary of responses to the consultation.

8 Sep 2020, 5:10 p.m. Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme Nickie Aiken (Conservative - Cities of London and Westminster)

Question to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of amending British Business Bank lending criteria to allow businesses which have accumulated losses greater than half of their share capital access to loans under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.

Answered by Paul Scully - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy)

Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) lending criteria relating to accumulated losses are driven by State Aid rules. The Government continues to hold a regular dialogue with the British Business Bank and CBILS lenders to monitor its implementation.

We continue to receive feedback on all our support for businesses and will seek to identify any areas for improvement.

Several local businesses have told me that #EatOutToHelpOut made a real difference. It's great that some businesses are continuing the scheme into September including @MayfairChippy - supported by their landlords. Check out my interview with Jamie below 👇 https://t.co/FCG3jSi6Et - Tweet Link

Earlier this year, it was right that people were encouraged to work from home when possible to stop the spread of #Covid19. Now, to get our economy moving again, London needs to get moving. London's Conservative Mayoral Candidate @ShaunBaileyUK agrees 👇 https://t.co/AwR9lqFuVH - Tweet Link

Cleaning up our air is v important however the Congestion Charge has become a tax on businesses as they recover from #Covid. Time for the Mayor to temporarily lift it at evenings and weekends to support businesses. Spoke about this on @BBCRadioLondon earlier. https://t.co/ywu4hjHVmK - Tweet Link
