Household Safety (Carbon Monoxide Detectors) Bill (12 September 2014)

Andrew Bingham: ...even prevent. Regular servicing of appliances will ensure that the problem does not arise, but there is also an easy way to detect the problem: a simple carbon monoxide detector, properly placed with an audible alarm will alert someone when carbon monoxide is present. Those small, inexpensive items can literally save someone’s life. I represent High Peak, which is a rural...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 September 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...that a child could find themselves in court as a defendant relying on the statutory defence. The fact that she talks about how a jury would make a judgment in relation to a statutory defence should ring alarm bells for all members of the Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (11 September 2014)

Vincent Cable: Again, I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s basic proposition. As it happens, much of the alarm that was raised some months ago about large American companies taking over British companies or British-based companies on the back of those tax provisions have proved wholly unfounded. He is quite right that takeovers, although they are generally beneficial to the UK economy, should not be...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Pancreatic Cancer (8 September 2014)

Eric Ollerenshaw: ...was that the CDF will be reformed. The precise wording was that it would be more closely “aligned with NICE” and that a new cost-benefit analysis will be introduced when new drugs are considered. Imagine the alarm, Mr Chope, when Sir Andrew Dillon, the chief executive of NICE, said to the Health Committee last week: “We would like to move away from a situation...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 'Spotlight' Housing Executive Programme:  Inquiry Report (8 September 2014)

Ross Hussey: ...employees only when he read the evidence that they gave to the Committee in November the following year?  That would mean that the Minister sat with his eyes closed and his ears covered during the ensuing alarm when the BBC sent a freedom of information request to the Housing Executive about the meeting and continually sent letters to the Department between November 2012 and June...

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...it is simply not possible for downsizing to happen in the real world in the way that Conservative MPs believe it will. What is the figure for Bury? If it is a similar figure, surely that should ring alarm bells for the hon. Gentleman about the policy not working as he believes it should.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Child Sex Abuse (Rotherham) (2 September 2014)

Duncan Hames: Professor Jay’s report described the collective failures of political and officer leadership as blatant. The youth workers and front-line social workers who raised the alarm will be disgusted by the fact that their bosses who ignored them—some of them paid more than Ministers—escaped disciplinary action. How can we ensure that the reliance of council cabinet members on...

Written Ministerial Statements — Communities and Local Government: Summer Recess (DCLG Work) (1 September 2014)

Eric Pickles: ...On 28 July, my Department teamed up with the Hollywood animation studio, DreamWorks, to launch an innovative partnership between the award-winning Fire Kills campaign and the new “How To Train Your Dragon 2” movie. The collaboration resulted in a powerful campaign using characters from the well known family film to encourage families to test their smoke alarm on the first of...

Scottish Parliament: Disabled Persons’ Parking Badges (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (19 August 2014)

Keith Brown: ...8217;s rules. The scheme provides street parking concessions to assist badge holders to live independent lives. In response to the concern that Inclusion Scotland raised that plain-clothes officers will cause fear and alarm to badge holders or that such officers might be impersonated for fraudulent purposes, I agree with the conclusions that the Local Government and Regeneration Committee...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (5 August 2014)

Kenny MacAskill: ...constable has the experience, and he has the information before him. Because of the significance of the issue, perhaps sometimes because of what can be an infringement of civil liberties and certainly because of the alarm that can be caused, we ensure that the numbers are limited and that we have safeguards and checks and balances. However, it is a matter for the chief constable, who is...

Architecture and the Built Environment — Question for Short Debate (28 July 2014)

Lord Tyler: ...my experience in the 1960s and 1970s, as the vice-chair of a planning committee, and when I was working for and with architects, and especially as a senior member of the RIBA staff, I am filled with alarm by this recommendation. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Who is to undertake this training? It is an oddity that councillors, faced with the subjective advice of a fire safety...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 July 2014)

Lord Hylton: ...of Jarndyce v Jarndyce shows what can happen after a death. We could in future face similar problems and manoeuvres before death. I am impressed by how strongly medical opinion opposes the Bill. It has caused serious alarm also to many living with handicaps or serious disabilities. Those with chronic or progressive diseases are particularly concerned. Hitler consigned people with severe...

Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill — Second Reading (16 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho: ...panel looked into claims by the NSA about the necessity of data gathering. It found only one case where the bulk collection of phone records was helpful—itself a money laundering incident. Allegations that GCHQ and the NSA undermined encryption alarm everyone who trusts the web with their medical, financial or personal records. Public trust is at an all-time low and I fully...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Special Measures Regime (16 July 2014)

Charlotte Leslie: ...investigation in Wales, not only because of mortality statistics and diagnostic waiting times, but because tales coming to me and the right hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Ann Clwyd) are raising the alarm. I urge hon. Members on both sides of the House who are worried about patients in Wales to urge such an investigation there, because the investigation here unearthed problems.

Serious Crime Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (15 July 2014)

Baroness Bakewell: ...1990s, I made a television programme exposing the practice of female genital mutilation, which went out in prime time on BBC television’s first channel, BBC1. It was quite explicit and voiced the alarm of Somali women themselves, who explained to me that the perpetuation of this practice resided with the grandmothers in their community who felt that what was good enough for them...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Committee (1st Day) (14 July 2014)

Lord Patel of Bradford: ...the risk of overdose. Some prisons have reported that prisoners can be demanding, and in some cases bullying of doctors and nurses can take place in their requests for painkillers. I was told in one prison that a GP had to press the alarm three times in the past 12 months due to prisoners bullying him for medication that he had refused, as he felt it was not clinically necessary. We also...

Business of the House: The UK’s Justice and Home Affairs Opt-outs (10 July 2014)

Richard Shepherd: ...friends and colleagues, showing such pride that even alone Britain could stand for something; and we do stand for something. It does not need the buying of votes or the passing over of great sums of money. I listened with alarm that Albania will be “brought up”. This is a union that has been founded on the transfer of payments. Now, I believe, and my dad taught me, that we earn...

Business of the House (10 July 2014)

Jonathan Ashworth: Many of my constituents have been in touch with me recently to express alarm at the escalating situation in Gaza, and that topic arouses great interest in many Members across the House who have sincerely held views. May we have a statement from the Foreign Secretary next week on the position of the UK Government?

Srebrenica Massacre Anniversary — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] (9 July 2014)

Eric Ollerenshaw: As someone who has been there, does the hon. Lady think that, whatever the rights and wrongs of Dutch or NATO troops, for any European who saw the Serbs separate men and boys from women alarm bells must have been set off about the past of this so-called civilised continent we live on?

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Housing Supply (9 July 2014)

Steven Baker: Does the Minister share my alarm about the words of Sir Michael Lyons on Labour’s review? The Minister has just discussed some of the hard-won commitments the Government have made to local plans and local accountability. Does he share my fear that Labour would return us to the bad old days of strict, authoritarian, top-down control?
