National Parliaments (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (15 December 2014)

The Earl of Sandwich: ...and opt-back-ins. I acknowledge that the UK is, in practice, an equal partner in the legislative sense. We take a lead in EU scrutiny through a range of committees, as I can see at first hand. Since the recession, there has also been a lot of alarm about the eurozone and whether there will be a two-tier Europe, but because of our strong financial position we have remained in that...

Cohabitation Rights Bill [HL] — Second Reading (12 December 2014)

Lord Farmer: ...Lord, Lord Lester, in the 2008-09 Session. The doubling of the number of cohabiting couples between 1996 and 2013 should not be seen as a reason to give them more rights, but rather as a reason to sound an alarm about the negative effects of these very high rates and the correlation with markedly lower marriage rates. Many of my days have been spent in the metal markets, so I will start...

Backbench Business: Ukraine (UK Relations with Russia) (11 December 2014)

Richard Ottaway: ...for the winding-up speeches; I mean no disrespect to you, Madam Deputy Speaker, or to the Minister. I very much agree with what my hon. Friend the Member for Maldon (Mr Whittingdale) has said. The alarm bells are ringing here. Of all the international hot spots at the moment, this is probably the most dangerous and possibly the one that threatens the UK the most. It is interesting that...

AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria — Question for Short Debate (11 December 2014)

Baroness Barker: ...that the Global Fund continues to fund research. In answering the Question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Collins, on 1 December, the Minister made some remarks about the funding of research which have caused some alarm among the lobby groups and civil society groups that work in this area. Will she commit to meet a cross-party group from both Houses along with some of those groups so that...

Mental Health (Cambridgeshire) (10 December 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...people who came by, a woman who had felt suicidal for a year and had no fixed address. She went to see a GP, who asked her to come back regularly to check that she was okay. She went for a bit, only to stop going, but that triggered no alarm bells, even though a suicidal patient who was being monitored had stopped showing up. Eventually, she went to another GP and was told that she would...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments (9 December 2014)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: ...Lang, on 4 July asked the House to reflect on the wisdom of the Government pressing ahead with the reform to judicial process despite the warnings of the judiciary. In spite of the Constitution Committee ringing the alarm bell and repeating the warnings—I will not bore the House with the details—the Government went ahead. As far as I can see, neither of these reports was even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Infrastructure Bill [Lords] (8 December 2014)

Kate Green: ...regime. Frankly, in our experience there has been far too much denial and secrecy where exploratory drilling has taken place. That secrecy, or non-acknowledgement of activity, understandably fuels alarm and anxiety further. Transparency is therefore a very important element of the safety regime that the Government need to introduce. My hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South...

Youth Service Provision — [Mr Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 December 2014)

Lisa Nandy: ...have seen across the country, with more surely to come over the next few years, does she agree that there is a reason why, in every serious case review we read, it is charities that have raised the alarm? They take the time and have the space to develop relationships with young people, exactly as she is outlining. That is why cutting these organisations, which are doing such important...

Overseas Voters (15 Year Rule): Foreign Affairs Committee (Hong Kong Visit) (2 December 2014)

Richard Ottaway: ...embraces criticism, and constructive criticism is the most valuable thing democracy can provide. If China blatantly blocks well-wishers like this Parliament, that raises big, unanswered questions which will alarm the people of Hong Kong and the region. This decision will not go unnoticed in Taiwan.

Fifa World Cup Bids (Serious Fraud Office) (1 December 2014)

Damian Collins: ...there remained the option of taking action against individuals. FIFA seems to pursue a line which involves corporate innocence, but individual potential guilt that warrants further investigation. The world responded with alarm to the results of Michael Garcia’s inquiry. Of course, FIFA has banned the publication of the full Garcia report. Sepp Blatter is sitting on it personally, and...

Houses of Parliament: World Heritage Site — Question for Short Debate (26 November 2014)

Baroness Boothroyd: ...easily that the universal affection for this place, if not for its politicians, will protect it. UNESCO’s glowing description encourages us to believe that to be true—but it is a false assumption. UNESCO has now sounded the alarm. English Heritage, Westminster City Council and other cultural bodies have registered their dismay at the dangers posed by the loosely controlled...

Illegal Encampments (East of England) — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (26 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Stewart Jackson: ...of communities and targeted services, is an excellent officer and, in fairness, I have had good support from the chief executive, Gillian Beasley, but what really disturbed me about that process was that it involved a closed, secret working party of councillors who had all signed a confidentiality agreement. That should really set alarm bells ringing. We were not allowed to know the...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — Remploy Workers (26 November 2014)

Kate Green: ...has come as no surprise to many of us, and it would not have surprised us when the closures were proposed. Even when Ministers announced the intended closure of the factories, many colleagues sounded the alarm. They highlighted the challenge that many Remploy staff would face when trying to find work in mainstream employment, particularly in areas that have already been hit hard by job...

Personal Independence Payments — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (25 November 2014)

Kate Green: ...real problem for disabled people in that context is the huge uncertainty and anxiety. Disabled people are very uncertain about whether they will be awarded the benefit, which creates great anxiety and alarm. I have mentioned that there appear to be additional costs for the Department due to the payment of compensation for delays. My constituent, Mr W, received 100 compensation for...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 November 2014)

Andy Burnham: Those examples will alarm people. In Greater Manchester, a bus company has been running ambulance services. We had news this week that an arms manufacturer is bidding for a GP contract. These are the things that are beginning to happen to the NHS. Nobody’s constituents have ever given their permission for any of this to happen. We heard speeches from the hon. Member for Bosworth (David...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Committee (18 November 2014)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: .... I regard this as an important adjunct to the common law position. Too often we hear of front-line resources being diverted to pay for compensation claims instead of paying for services. I shall give one example. Alarm—the Association of Local Authority Risk Managers—reports that councils paid out 32 million for pothole claims in 2012, and in the same period fixed 2.2...
