Autism: Educational Outcomes

The following is an extract from the Adjournment debate on Autism: Educational Outcomes on 6 February 2018:

Can the Minister tell us how long it takes between a school identifying that a child has an issue and that child receiving the intervention and support that they require? In too many areas throughout the country, it is taking far too long.

I am grateful to the hon. Lady for her question. In my speech, I will go on to address some of the issues—not just the Prime Minister’s review, but the Lenehan review and the Bercow work as well. We are looking very seriously at this matter, and the impetus from the Prime Minister and No.10 is only helping us to focus even more resources on making sure that we get this review right.[Official Report, 6 February 2018, Vol. 635, c. 1471.]

Letter of correction from Nadhim Zahawi:

An error has been identified in the response I gave to the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn).

The correct response should have been:

Local Government Finance Act 1998 (Non-Domestic Rating Multipliers) (England) Order 2017

The following is an extract from the First Delegated Legislation Committee debate on the Local Government Finance Act 1998 (Non-Domestic Rating Multipliers) (England) Order 2017:

I thank the hon. Member for Oxford East for her contribution and for welcoming the measures, albeit that she did caveat her remarks fairly heavily. She asserted that the Government are not doing enough, but bringing forward the change to the revaluation approach by two years is a £2.3 billion move. [Official Report, 29 January 2018, First Delegated Legislation Committee, c. 6.]

Letter of correction from Mel Stride:

An error has been identified in my response to the debate.

The correct wording should have been:

I thank the hon. Member for Oxford East for her contribution and for welcoming the measures, albeit that she did caveat her remarks fairly heavily. She asserted that the Government are not doing enough, but bringing forward the change to the indexation approach by two years is a £2.3 billion move.
