Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (25 May 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ..., Lord Giddens, raised the issue of steel. It should suffice for me to say that my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, as many know, was in India today. He has been involved in important discussions in this respect. I am sure that the House will be updated in due course. The noble Lords, Lord McFall and Lord Oates, talked about the banking...

Petition - Development on the Former Two Trees High School Site, Denton: Battle of Jutland Centenary (25 May 2016)

Flick Drummond: The normal ration is rum, of course. I ask my hon. Friend to send those letters to the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth; I am sure that it would be very grateful to him. HMS Valiant, on which his grandfather served, also had a distinguished career in world war two, when it served in the Mediterranean and the far east. Within 12 hours, the Royal Navy had lost 14 ships and more than 6,000 men...

Deputy Chairmen of Committees - Membership Motions (25 May 2016)

Lord Boswell of Aynho: ...noble Lord, Lord Pearson, has not participated in debates on our reports in recent times, to my memory. He has confined himself to criticising the committee in the media, alongside his traditional and, I am sure, welcome contributions on occasions such as this. I regret that he has not done more. However 23 June turns out, we will need collectively to pull together, as a society and...

Immigration: Detention of Pregnant Women - Question (25 May 2016)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I thank the Minister for that reply, and it is welcome news. Is there any timetable on this? Can we be sure that it is going to happen within the next few months? It seems incredible to me that it is beyond the wit of the Home Office to count the number of pregnant women who are held in detention.

NHS: Bursaries - Question (25 May 2016)

Lord Elton: My Lords, I am sure that there is a simple answer to my question that everybody else knows. My noble friend said that there were 20,000 nursing places available for training and more than 50,000 people wishing to fill them. But we also read that there is a shortage of nurses such that there are very heavy demands made for agency nursing. What explains that discrepancy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (25 May 2016)

John Bercow: .... If there is a Whip on the Treasury Bench, he or she should note that it is frankly unacceptable. If there is not, that message should be relayed to the relevant Whip sooner rather than later. I am sure that the lapse, which will be very unsatisfactory, not least to the Chair of the Procedure Committee, the hon. Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker), and his colleagues on the Committee, will...

Alun Cairns: I was delighted to visit S4C last week to see at first hand the exciting developments at the channel, including the launch of its HD service in time for the European championship. I am sure we all wish Chris Coleman and the boys well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Maria Caulfield: I am sure Labour Members will disagree, but the first priority of any Government has to be the defence and security of our country, so will the Chancellor outline the steps this Government are taking to replace our Trident nuclear deterrent?

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward (25 May 2016)

Willie Rennie: .... What we heard today from the First Minister was the latter. The more she speaks, the more she begins to sound like Gordon Brown, with the double and treble-counting of all her sums of money. I am sure that she will add “s” on to the end of everything, with “billions” rather than “billion”, and the trebling of the money that we have, but that will not...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Lord Bridges of Headley: glass houses should not throw stones. I will endeavour to respond to as many points as possible. I hope that noble Lords will forgive me if I do not respond to all of them. I will endeavour to make sure that either my department or the relevant department responds in writing. The noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, made some extremely incisive points about the need for joined-up government. Of...

Debate on the Address: Europe, Human Rights and Keeping People Safe at Home and Abroad (24 May 2016)

Theresa May: speak to him briefly about this issue. As he sees, other Foreign Office Ministers are present and have heard his point, as has the Minister for Policing, Fire, Criminal Justice and Victims. I am sure that support will be forthcoming for the case to which the hon. Gentleman refers. A number of hon. Members referred to the proposed counter-extremism Bill. It is absolutely right that our...

Counter-Daesh: Quarterly Update - Statement (24 May 2016)

Earl Howe: ...are also supportive of the new Government in any way that they are able. All I can say to the noble Lord is that we will continue to play an active role and encourage the Government in Libya to make sure that, as the Libyan state authority is re-established across national territory, we see respect for human rights being considered as an important part of rebuilding governance—and,...

Schools: Modern Languages - Question (24 May 2016)

Baroness Evans of Bowes Park: ...foreign languages, particularly in the context of building contacts and relationships overseas. As I said, universities in particular are playing a role in discussions with employers to help to make sure that graduates understand the opportunities that are open to them. Of course, as we look to improve careers education within the school system, that will be another way to drum the message...
