    Thelma Walker

    And now a maiden speech from a Labour MP, Thelma Walker, who was elected to Colne Valley.

    She turns to the discussion of "what is a good school" and says that a culture of targets and tests does not result in a happy child.

    She adds that the UK's media and creative arts are the envy of the world and she says Colne Valley is "vibrant with creativity" and wants to see a Colne Valley powerhouse.

    But she says cuts have an impact on children and says she wants to campaign for more funding for schools, hospitals and services in the area.
