Steve Brine MP

Steve Brine thanks outgoing PM in historic PMQs

Steve Brine paid tribute to David Cameron, and the legacy left for the Winchester & Chandler's Ford constituency, in PMQs on Wednesday 13th July.

In Mr Cameron's final PMQs, MPs gave thanks and good wishes from both sides of the House as he prepared to visit the Queen to stand down after six years as Prime Minister.

In what was generally a light-hearted and reflective Chamber, Steve Brine thanked David Cameron for everything he had done for Winchester & Chandler's Ford, where every school is now 'good' or 'outstanding', and the jobless total is down 64% since he came to office in 2010.

In asking Mr Cameron to keep his 'Big Society' agenda close to heart, he reminded Mr Cameron how he had once said that politicians are a mixture of egotism and altruism, and that you just hope that the right one wins out and that people do the right thing rather than the politically convenient thing.

He said: "It seems to me that he has stayed on the right side of that divide in the past six years, not least in the manner of his departure. I think that this country is going to miss him a great deal."

Mr Cameron, who received a standing ovation and applause at the end of the session, confirmed that nationally there were 1.4m more children in 'good' and 'outstanding' schools since 2010 and 300 free schools.

He also highlighted the National Citizen Service, where over 200,000 children have taken part in the scheme which looks set to become the norm for 16 year olds to acquire the 'soft skills' that will give them real life chances.
