There's only one party that's committed to the delivering high-quality education for our students. With our latest action on teaching and school reform, the Education (Coasting Schools) Act 2016, this Conservative Government is making good on our promises, bringing accountability and reform to struggling schools, and making sure that every student has access to a place at a top-quality school.

While the Opposition has been wasting the time of Parliament with a meaningless motion about "Prime Ministerial Accountability, which has. however, been converted into a triumph for the Prime Minister, this Government has been accomplishing great things for the people of this country. In recent days, this Government can look proudly upon these achievements:

We have reached an excellent settlement with the junior doctors;
We have passed continuing support for our national defense and NATO alliance with Trident;
We have passed Article 50 legislation to withdraw from the EU;
We have passed the Competitive Energy Act.

The Conservative Government is keeping its promises and is strengthening our public services, our economy, and our standing in the world.

In the past few weeks we have truly seen the true colours of the political parties in the United Kingdom.  Labour claim to be progressives and reformers, yet they voted against the Prison Reform Act. They voted against the Welfare Reform Act. They voted against the Energy Competition Act. A third of their MPs voted against the Article 50 Act. Every fibre of Labour MPs is trying to live in the past, while the Conservatives are taking this country forward! This is the true comparison between blue and red.

William Jonhson, the Minister of State for Health, has made a brilliant speech about pay increases in the NHS. Junior Doctors will now receive from 10% to 50% pay increase as part of our commitment to a 7-day NHS. The Conservatives are fully committed to the NHS and we will continue to strengthen the service all Britons are so very proud of.

The Opposition's silence is deafening in the House of Commons. The Government currently has three bills for second reading in the House, along with several ministerial statements, but the Opposition has barely bothered to comment on any of them. As a member of the Government, I don't mind at all – makes my job easier – but as a citizen I recognise the need for a viable opposition as part of our parliamentary democracy.

The Labour party welcome the new pay deal but we call on the government to end all public sector pay caps and ensure adequete provision of support staff at weekends . The government must ensure that the NHS is given extra funding to meet the 7 day goal or they will push an over stretched NHS to breaking point.

With our latest order on course outcomes transparency, this Government is making sure that applicants and offer-holders can make informed decisions about their chosen course of study at university, based on data about the employment and earnings outcomes of graduates of that course. Students pay tens of thousands of pounds to finance – and spend hundreds of hours working towards – their degree. They need to be able to choose what they study with the knowledge of what awaits them after graduation. The policy is part of this Government's greater strategy of ensuring that higher education works for students, an issue to which the Opposition has only paid lip service.

It's interesting to see that the same party which tripled tuition fees for university students is suddenly worried about student debt. I earnestly hope that the Government doesn't continue to take credit for trying to solve problems that they themselves created. Student debt is a seriously issue plaguing higher education, and by promising to scrap tuition fees, Labour intends to tackle it head on. Labour has a plan to prevent students from falling into debt, the best that the Government can do is a report. Our society needs artists as much as it needs bankers. We shouldn't be discouraging our youth from studying towards their chosen profession, especially when we have the power to ensure that they can pursue that profession free of a significant monetary obligation.

While the Home Secretary stonewalls on answering a simple question because he's too lazy to engage in a proper debate, people are dying because of drug prohibition. In Portugal, where drugs are decriminalised, three people die of overdose for every one million people. In contrast, nearly 47 people per million die in the UK. This government needs to stop playing political games with people's lives and answer questions on their backwards and outdated drug policy.
