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.

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?

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (7 July 2014)

Sheila Gilmore: ...on. At the end of the pilot, 4,700 were still on direct payments, but 1,993 of the original group had been returned to having payments made directly to their landlord. That is a considerable proportion of the total. That rings some alarm bells on how well it will work. The landlords involved in those pilots have said constantly that it worked only as a result of very intensive work that...

Disabled Students Allowance — [Mr Jim Hood in the Chair] (2 July 2014)

Caroline Lucas: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate.

Legal Highs — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (1 July 2014)

Toby Perkins: ...of time was being spent in that troublesome area. He said: “This is an area we are having to target for anti-social behaviour and perceived drug use. Kids are buying legal highs from Reefer and using them there. Members of the public believe it is a big drug problem and it is still causing people harassment, alarm and distress. Some of these young people are actually turning to...

Lyn Brown: ...and the bathroom window could not be closed. Fixtures, fittings and appliances were in such poor condition that they presented serious health and safety, fire and electric shock risks—and they did not even have a smoke alarm. Those tenants, afraid of losing their home, felt unable to complain. I am sure that Members will agree that those are terrible conditions for a high and...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — Burma (Persecution of Minorities) (25 June 2014)

Kerry McCarthy: ...the treatment of the Rohingya and the systematic denial of basic rights amount to genocide. Human Rights Watch has previously warned of ethnic cleansing in Rakhine state and the UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in Burma voiced his alarm at the deteriorating crisis, warning that, “recent developments in Rakhine state are the latest in a long history of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Social Housing:  Glengormley (24 June 2014)

Paula Bradley: I thank the Minister and am encouraged that there are new houses in the pipeline.  I am sure that he shares my alarm at the fact that not one home has been built in Glengormley for the past 15 years, even though we have had substantial need in Queens Park and Glenvarna.  Does he agree that that is unacceptable, and will he undertake to find out how that has happened and why nothing...

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Children: Maintenance (24 June 2014)

Steve Webb: ...as interactive voice response. There were around eight occasions in which contingency measures had to be used in the last year for reasons including brief local power outages, activation of the fire alarm system and occasions where call demands exceeded forecasted volumes.

Deregulation Bill: New Clause 4 — Removal of restriction on investigation of tramway accidents in Scotland by RAIB (23 June 2014)

Caroline Lucas: ...hon. Members have returned time and again: nobody really knows what is driving these measures. People are not asking for them; on the contrary, organisations that are watching the proposals are sounding the alarm. They include the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, which we should surely listen to closely. Given that no counter-argument is coming from other organisations to balance the discussion, it...

House of Lords: Labour Peers’ Working Group Report — Motion to Take Note (19 June 2014)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...against one party and one man dominating the Scottish Parliament and driving Scotland on a reckless path towards the break-up of the United Kingdom. They failed to foresee the future. The phrase “constitutional settlement” always rings an alarm bell with me, as it did when I saw it in the report. There is no such thing as a constitutional settlement. Written constitutions are...
