Date range


You can give a start date, an end date, or both to restrict results to a particular date range. A missing end date implies the current date, and a missing start date implies the oldest date we have in the system. Dates can be entered in any format you wish, e.g. “3rd March 2007” or “17/10/1989”


Enter a name here to restrict results to contributions only by that person.


Restrict results to a particular parliament or assembly that we cover (e.g. the Scottish Parliament), or a particular type of data within an institution, such as Commons Written Answers.


If you know the actual Hansard column number of the information you are interested in (perhaps you’re looking up a paper reference), you can restrict results to that.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewables Obligation Closure Order (Northern Ireland) 2015 (28 Sep 2015)

Basil McCrea: ...service, the economy in general and the Department of Social Development? When I heard about the individual, specific projects, which the Chair of the Committee very clearly set out, it started to ring alarm bells with me. It appears to be that we have to pass this legislation or a specific project or a specific company will not invest. Do not get me wrong: I am not saying that we...

Scottish Parliament: Education (22 Sep 2015)

Iain Gray: ...teachers. Initial results from the national 5s last year showed that the unintended consequence has been a narrowing of the curriculum, which was once lauded for its breadth. The lowest point, of course, was the farce of the new higher maths exam. Alarm bells were rung by teachers, parents and thousands of pupils, who signed petitions. The cabinet secretary refused to listen and now tries...

Stalking (Protection of Victims) (17 Sep 2015)

Karen Bradley: ...the new stalking offences—almost a 50% increase on the previous year. A significant number of those prosecutions were brought under the more serious of the two offences, involving fear of violence and serious alarm or distress. Those figures are encouraging and show that the new legislation is beginning to take effect. However we know, and we have heard today, that too many victims...

Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Dioxide Emissions (17 Sep 2015)

Philip Hollobone: Despite the Government’s policy announcements, investor confidence in green energy in the borough of Kettering appears still to be high, because, much to residents’ alarm, fresh applications for solar farms are being submitted to the local council. What can the Government do to get solar energy out of our agricultural fields and on to the big roofs of warehouses?

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Holiday Accommodation: Safety (17 Sep 2015)

Lord Beecham: ...they have made of the case for extending to properties subject to short or holiday lets, such as those via Air BnB, safety provisions such as those set out in the draft Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015.

National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill (Programme): Energy (15 Sep 2015)

That the draft Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015, which were laid before this House on 16 March, in the last Session of Parliament, be approved.

Child Poverty — [Mr Gerald Howarth in the Chair] (15 Sep 2015)

Natalie McGarry: ...of us all. Unfortunately the Government’s policies are forcing more children into poverty. It should concern us all that 3.7 million children in the UK live in relative poverty, and it should alarm, astound and worry us that the number in child poverty is projected to rise to 4.7 million by 2020 under current policies. The obsession of the Tory Government is that people at all levels...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Waiting Lists Crisis (15 Sep 2015)

Jo-Anne Dobson: ...factors that, collectively, are contributing to the crisis in our waiting times. The most significant, however, was the decision to suspend referring patients to the independent sector. I understand the growing alarm at the spiralling cost of using independent providers; indeed, I remember joining others in speaking out against those rising costs. However, by taking such a conclusive...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Trade Union Bill (14 Sep 2015)

Stephen Doughty: ...information and judicial review powers, disfranchising millions through ill-thought-out changes to electoral registration and the Act that has gagged charities and civil society organisations, it is deeply sinister and it should sound the alarm bell from town to town and city to city across this nation of hard-won liberties in the year we celebrate the anniversary of Magna Carta. I return...

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015: Motion to Approve (14 Sep 2015)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...clearly the timeline of landlords being in breach and then issuing remedial notices. He also talked about testing on the first day of new tenancies for blocks of flats. In most cases a smoke alarm requires just a test button, but I appreciate that if new tenancies come in every day, it might be rather tiresome for the other tenants living in the block. If he does not mind, I will write to...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (14 Sep 2015)

Lord Grantchester: ..., dismantling the least costly form of renewables technology. They undermine investor confidence, as others have stated already tonight and as Ernst & Young reports in its research. They raise alarm bells throughout the renewables sector. These clauses raise wider questions and concerns regarding how wind power, and indeed other renewables, will feature and impact on an overall energy...

[Valerie Vaz in the Chair] — NHS (Contracts and Conditions) (14 Sep 2015)

Sarah Wollaston: ..., the increase is 15%; and if they are admitted on a Monday, the increase is 5%. Those are relative, not absolute, statistics and are on a background rate of 1.8%, so it is important that we do not alarm people unduly with those data. However, they mean, very importantly, that around 11,000 more people die if they are admitted between a Friday and a Monday, relative to what we would expect...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Housing Executive Structures (8 Sep 2015)

Stewart Dickson: ...have to express some surprise and concern at the nature and content of the motion. The call on the Assembly to ask the Minister to "instruct" the chair of the Housing Executive certainly rings some alarm bells with me. The call for an instruction implies that something has gone wrong in a fundamental area of governance. As a member of the Committee and in my time in the Assembly, I have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (8 Sep 2015)

Alban Maginness: ...I look forward to looking at the detail of that. I was a little concerned about clause 38, "Guidance to Ombudsman in relation to matters connected with national security". When I see "national security", alarm bells go off in my ears, and I begin to think, "What is happening here?". I was listening this morning to the report on the radio about the fishermen who encountered a British...
