CatusStarbright PetrosAC Would you like to ‘hold this government to account’ by debating our latest bill? I think it would be a much more constructive and productive way than asking for PMQ or repeating the old ‘when are we going to see the budget’ question.

This bill has been on my to-do list - I try and post on most pieces in the House, if not all.

I am for the expansion of grammar schools, so I am favourable to this bill if it facilitiates that.

Why not make definitions part I, why stick with only 2 unnecessary lines when you can pad with a third?
Actually make that only 4 lines of padding when you can have 5 because the definition is the dumbest I have ever seen "we are going to define everything as it is already defined in the bill"

Aye.

The restrictions on selectivity harm the children of the working poor. I agree with the Rt. Hon member above that we need to expand section 1 albeit 'dumbest' is not appropriate parliamentry language.
