Renewable Energy - Question for Short Debate (28 Jun 2016)

Lord Teverson: ...I am not going to talk about this, I very much echo the noble Earl’s focus on distribution capacity in certain regions of the United Kingdom—in Scotland but also very much in the south-west. The area I want to concentrate on this evening is one that my noble friend has already mentioned but which is often not included in these sorts of debates: the renewable transport...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Committee (28 Jun 2016)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...that the value of the fund is maintained, because these are difficult times in terms of public spending. How is the British Council developing its expertise in these matters as I understand that this has not been an area of particular responsibility for it in the past and it will need to build up its strength? That leads me to ask what the role of the blue shield will be and whether the...

Bedford Hospital (28 Jun 2016)

Ben Gummer: ...the country—and continue to happen through the NHS—should abide by the principles of reconfiguration. They should be independent, they should be clinically led and they should reflect the full gamut of clinical opinion across any area. They should be cognisant of the wider interests of the NHS; it is not right to be able to reconfigure something that has detrimental effects on...

Alcohol Consumption Guidelines (28 Jun 2016)

Alison Thewliss: ...who drink quite a lot end up in hospital more than people who drink an equivalent amount in better-off areas, because their lifestyles and the things around them do not keep them safe. Someone in a well-off area might be having a bottle of wine every night, whereas someone in a poorer area having something else is far more likely to come to harm. There are serious considerations not only...

Finance Bill: Reduction in rate of capital gains tax (28 Jun 2016)

David Gauke: ...hon. Gentleman that where we are talking about remuneration that is income, we are determined to ensure that it is taxed as income. As a Government we have shown a willingness to make changes in this area. Let me turn to the wider issues of capital gains tax and yet again welcome the hon. Member for Salford and Eccles (Rebecca Long Bailey) to her position. I wish her a long and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Learning Disability Services: Western Health and Social Care Trust (28 Jun 2016)

Michelle O'Neill: important that we discuss the issue, and it is right and proper that it has given rise to a great deal of concern across all the political parties, families and communities in the Western Trust area. Before I address the points made during the debate, I want to assure all the families that I share their concerns and that my priority is to ensure that their voices continue to be heard...

Finance Bill: Charge for financial year 2017 (28 Jun 2016)

Kirsty Blackman: ...the following: antimicrobial resistance, which is a really important thing to be funding in this day and age; diseases with epidemic potential, which, given what happened with Ebola, is a really important area to be funding; and neglected tropical diseases, which is a fabulous area for the Government to support. It is really important to be putting money into the various areas of research...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Dromore, County Down: Regeneration (28 Jun 2016)

Paul Givan: I thank the Member for that question. I wondered who would be the first to come up with the surname joke. I know that the Member has worked very well in taking forward the Dromore area. As Minister for Communities, is it my responsibility to represent all of Northern Ireland, not just my constituency, so it will be treated fairly, as every other constituency will be treated fairly. As for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Unauthorised Monuments: Public Land (28 Jun 2016)

Paul Givan: ..., and engagement with communities is needed. As repugnant as these memorials are, the ability of contractors to do the required work — ultimately, they are the ones who would have to go into the area — will always raise security and safety issues. The PSNI will have an advisory role, so it becomes a difficult issue to manage. The issue is not confined to the memorial that I...

Independent Advocates for Trafficked Children — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (28 Jun 2016)

Fiona Mactaggart: advocacy scheme too. In a way, the Home Office has been more determined to provide support for isolated children than has the Department for Education, which should play a leading role in this area. Local authorities face diminishing resources and increased demand, and cannot adequately support British children who go missing or the unaccompanied Syrian refugee children who will come...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Benefit Fraud (28 Jun 2016)

Paul Givan: ...of claimant fraud or error were detected last year. In my initial answer, I said that 񊸸 million was recovered as a result of fraud, but 17 million was recovered as a result of error. This is an area that we need to invest in. It is estimated that 1% of benefit entitlement is gained through fraud, which comes to about 50 million of public money. It is at a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Regeneration Powers (28 Jun 2016)

Paul Givan: ...are to take them forward. These powers are very important. They have a positive impact in our communities through urban regeneration and the support of neighbourhood renewal areas. So this is an area that we will need to engage on, and the Executive will need to come to a view on, sooner rather than later.

EU: British Nationals Resident Overseas - Question (28 Jun 2016)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...en bloc? Secondly, in the new unit to be based in Whitehall, which was also mentioned in yesterday’s Statement, will there be a member of staff with special designated responsibility for this area of work?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Communities: Enabling Success (28 Jun 2016)

Paul Givan: ...did not go to the strategy in the way in which I would have liked it to when it was in the Department for Employment and Learning. As we go forward with the Programme for Government, it is an area that I will want to see developed.

Enslaved Africans: National Memorial - Question (28 Jun 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: It is a bitter irony that Liverpool was built largely on slavery—every aspect of every old building from that time reflects it—so perhaps my noble friend has a point about using an area which has significance for much wider populations. However, we must not forget modern day slavery in this context. We must move on to looking at things that are happening today but that go unseen...

Court Proceedings: Written Transcripts - Question (28 Jun 2016)

Baroness Berridge: ...our courts are accessible? On investigation, it seems that numerous companies are operating to record proceedings in numerous parts of the country, so there also seems to be scope for economies of scale in this area.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Environmental Protections: Brexit Impact (28 Jun 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: ...legislation will remain and will continue to apply until there are conversations about Brexit. How that takes place will very much depend on the form of Brexit. If we remain part of the economic area, as in the Norway model, most of the environmental protections and legislation that we have in place will remain. It will be very dependent on the type of Brexit.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Sixmilewater: South Antrim (28 Jun 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: ...elements in it, which I will look at. I will give consideration to the comments that he has made. Pollution in rivers is something that I find quite abhorrent. I have had experience of it in my area, where there have been repeat offenders who need to be brought before the courts and prosecuted. I am willing to have a conversation with the Member in relation to special status for the river.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Farmers: DAERA/DFE Support (28 Jun 2016)

Michelle McIlveen: I thank the Member for his question. I am very familiar with the Comber earlies project, and I congratulate all those involved and all the organisers as well as the potato growers in the area. I had the privilege of attending, during the open farm weekend, the Orr farm, which is very much a leader in the production of the Comber early. There are a number of initiatives that can be taken...

Finance Bill: General anti-abuse rule: provisional counteractions (28 Jun 2016)

David Gauke: ...that remains the case. On clause 153 and schedule 22 and asset-based penalties, the hon. Gentleman asked how we value the asset. The Valuation Office Agency, which is obviously experienced in that area, will value the asset for HMRC. The date of valuation will be the date of sale. For assets not disposed of, the value will be the market value on the last day of the tax year. That is the...
