3 Bills introduced by Sheryll Murray

Third reading - the final chance for the Lords to change the Bill - took place on 18 March and no amendments were made. As both Houses have agreed on the text of the Bill it now waits for the final stage of Royal Assent when the Bill will become an Act of Parliament. A date for Royal Assent has yet to be set.

This Bill received Royal Assent on Wednesday 14th May 2014 and was enacted into law.

A Bill to make provision in relation to marine navigation and harbours.

This Bill received Royal Assent on Thursday 25th April 2013 and was enacted into law.

The Bill failed to complete its passage through Parliament before the end of the session. This means the Bill will make no further progress. A Bill to prohibit the keeping of primates as pets in the United Kingdom and the breeding, sale and purchase of primates; to introduce breed-specific codes of practice for the keeping of primates in animal sanctuaries and for species conservation; and for connected purposes.

1 Other Department Questions
23rd Mar 2021
To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what assessment she has made of the effect of the covid-19 outbreak on female employment.

The latest ONS official statistics show the female employment rate at 71.8% up to the end of January 2021. This Government recognises that times are hard for many women, and men, which is why we have extended the furlough scheme until September, alongside new measures in our Plan for Jobs, such as our £2bn Kickstart Scheme and the Restart programme, which launches in the summer.

Kemi Badenoch
Minister for Equalities
21st Jun 2021
What steps his Department is taking to support more young people into technical and further education.

The Skills for Jobs White Paper sets our plans to transform technical education and is focused on giving people the skills they need, in a way that suits them, so they can get great jobs in sectors the economy needs and boost productivity.

Our reforms will put employers at the heart of the skills system and by 2030, almost all technical courses will be on employer-led standards, ensuring that the education and training people receive are directly linked to the skills needed for jobs.

We have been raising the quality and prestige of technical education by introducing T Levels, which are a high-quality technical alternative to A levels with an industry placement, and are reforming higher technical education (Level 4/5) to make it a more popular and prestigious choice that provides the skills employers need.

The Plan for Jobs introduced last year provides a package of support to ensure young people have the skills and training to go on to high quality, secure and fulfilling employment. This includes incentives for employers to take on new apprentices, supporting the largest-ever expansion of Traineeships, giving school and college leavers the opportunity to study high value Level 2 and 3 courses, and funding more vocational training placements to support the delivery of sector-based work academy programme (SWAP) placements.

15th Jul 2020
What steps her Department has taken through the fourth Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region held in June 2020 to provide support to people suffering as a result of the conflict in that country.

At the Brussels conference, the International Development Secretary committed at least £300 million in aid for 2020, bringing total UK spend to over £3 billion for Syria and the Region. This is funding life-saving aid, supporting refugees and their host communities, and helping vulnerable Syrians to be self-reliant through education and training.

James Cleverly
Minister of State (Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office)
4th Nov 2020
What steps his Department plans to take to help tackle vexatious claims made against (a) armed forces and (b) police personnel in Northern Ireland.

The Government has been clear that it will introduce legislation to address the legacy of the Troubles that focuses on reconciliation, delivers for victims, and ends the cycle of re-investigations that has failed victims, veterans and police personnel alike.

We remain committed to engaging with partners from all communities and making progress on this important issue as quickly as possible.

Robin Walker
Minister of State (Education)
