As a country we see many water-related fatalities every year. We see many more call outs to water related incidents. Throughout lockdown year our coastguards were tasked to almost double the call outs than in the previous year. Our children NEED to learn about Cold water shock & rip currents.

The government should allow BTEC students to achieve teacher predicted grades rather than being forced into a system that is unethically downgrading thousands of students grades.

Please don’t send students back until we know we have had the priority groups vaccinated such as the elderly, the extremely clinically vulnerable, and those with underlying health conditions.

Cancel all standardise testing for year 11 and year 12 students in 2021. By replacing tests with smaller amounts of course work and teacher assessment, students would have a fair chance at achieving their target grades and it would relieve stress for teachers and students.

Schools can be a breeding ground for the spread of coronavirus. Children are mingling at schools and returning to families who are potentially vulnerable, keeping rates high.

It's only been since schools opened that infection rates have been high in Kent, and keeping them open may keep it high.

Legislate to allow parents to have the option to remove their children from school if there is a pandemic e.g. Coronavirus or similar without negative action by schools or local authorities. They shouldn’t lose the child’s place in the school or face any kind of prosecution.

A significant number of students will sit their final 2021 examinations. The outcome of which undoubtedly will be their passport, for many of their future life chances and successes. In order for this to be done fairly, it is imperative that the amount of content they are tested on is reduced.

We want the Education Secretary and the Government to step in and review the exam board’s decision on how GCSE and A-Level grades will be calculated and awarded due to the current coronavirus crisis. We want a better solution than just using our previous data to be the basis of our grade.

To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, when he plans to respond to the email correspondence of 10 March 2022 from the hon. Member for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton on the reclassification of rental properties.

A response was issued to my Rt Hon Friend on 27 June.

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what recent discussions he has had with representatives of Southern Water on sewage discharges in West Sussex.

Water quality is an absolute priority for me. I have been crystal clear with water companies – including Southern Water – that the current frequency of sewage discharges is unacceptable. We are the first government to set out our expectation that water companies must take steps to significantly reduce storm overflows, and Southern Water has recently received a £90 million fine – the largest on record.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will make it his policy to offer a second booster vaccination to all adults, in the context of rising hospitalisations from covid-19.

On 21 February 2022, the Government accepted advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to offer an additional spring booster dose to all residents in care homes for older adults, individuals aged 12 years old and over who are immunosuppressed, and all adults aged 75 years old and over.

On 19 May 2022, the JCVI published interim advice on an autumn COVID-19 booster programme which states that a COVID-19 vaccine should be offered to residents in a care home for older adults and staff; frontline health and social care workers; all those aged 65 years old and over; and adults aged 16 to 64 years old in a clinical risk group. The JCVI is considering the vaccination of other patient groups and the detail of the definitions of clinical risk groups. The JCVI keeps the current epidemiological data under review and will issue further advice if necessary.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent estimate he has made of the number of available dental appointments for NHS patients in West Sussex.

The information requested is not held centrally, as appointments for National Health Service treatment are managed directly by dental practices. Between April and June 2022, NHS England and NHS Improvement have asked practices to deliver at least 95% of contracted units of dental activity to safely improve access for patients, including in areas such as West Sussex.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how much funding his Department has provided to help improve access to NHS dental services in West Sussex.

An additional £50 million was provided for National Health Service dentistry in the final quarter of 2021/22 to provide urgent care to patients. Of this funding, £6,887,000 was made available to the South East of England, including West Sussex. NHS England provides regional commissioning teams with a combined allocation for dental services, community pharmacy and primary care ophthalmology. In 2022/23, this allocation is £5,384 million.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what progress has been made on the renegotiation of the terms of the dental contract.

Work to reform the National Health Service dental contract is underway. The Department and NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with stakeholders, including the British Dental Association, on alternative ways of commissioning services. This aims to improve patient access, reduce health inequalities and make the NHS a more attractive place to work for dentists.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 3 December 2021 to Question 80898 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, what steps he is taking to help ensure a higher uptake of vaccinations among the 12 to 15 age group.

As of 11 December, over 1,285,987 12 to 15 year olds in England have now received their first dose. Since the school-based vaccination offer commenced in the autumn, 95% of all schools have either been visited or have a visit planned. NHS England and NHS Improvement are also planning a programme to reach those who were absent on the day of the vaccination visit; those who tested positive for COVID-19 within a 28-day period; and those who now wish to receive the vaccine. This will be at the end of the substantive school offer period.

Parents are also able to book a appointment via the National Booking Service or 119 which offers flexibility and an increasing number of vaccinations sites for 12 to 15 year olds. Parents and guardians will be advised to book an appointment to attend vaccine sites with their children and consent will be sought during the appointment.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will re-introduce free covid-19 lateral flow test kits for employers.

Vulnerable settings continue to be offered regular asymptomatic testing for staff and for service users, particularly those who are at high risk of severe illness if they were infected with COVID-19. This includes health and social care settings and prisons. Workplace testing has also continued for those who work in operational roles at the United Kingdom border and in education. We have no plans to resume provision of free tests to other types of workplaces. However, employees can continue to access free tests through Pharmacy Collect, online ordering or 119.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of the number of General Practitioners in (a) West Sussex and (b) Bognor Regis and Littlehampton; and if he will make a statement.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the (a) effectiveness of money supply figures (i) six-month real, (ii) M1, (iii) M3, (iv) M4 in determining the state of the economy and (b) potential merits of more or less monetary tightening.

The Government continually monitors a range of economic indicators and developments to consider the impact of these on businesses and households.

Monetary policy is the responsibility of the independent Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Bank of England and this includes decisions on Bank Rate and the assets held in the Asset Purchase Facility (APF). The separation of fiscal and monetary policy is a key feature of the UK’s economic framework, and essential for the effective delivery of monetary policy, so the Government does not comment on the conduct or effectiveness of monetary policy.
