Consumer Rights Bill — Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 November 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...they are passed on as service charges. I do not feel able to accept her amendment but I shall write to my ministerial colleagues at the Ministry of Justice and DCLG alerting them to the issue, making sure that they consider the points that she made very carefully. I will ensure that we follow through as a Government and I will see her again if the need arises. There is a willingness to...

Houses of Parliament: World Heritage Site — Question for Short Debate (26 November 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: .... The work will also be an opportunity to consider broader improvements, including, for instance, disability access to the palace. The noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, asked about government staff. I am sure that he will not be surprised to hear that I think it would be prudent to wait and see what the options are and what the cost analysis is. That would be the sensible approach, but I am...

Telecoms Industry (Mis-Selling) (26 November 2014)

Edward Vaizey: ...has no need to do so. I clarified earlier that Ofcom will include Mr Jones’s case in its deliberations. However, let me ponder whether I take the step of phoning the chief executive. I am sure that he has been alerted to the debate, so he will have heard my remarks and observed how forcefully the right hon. Gentleman put his case on behalf of his constituent. Any right-thinking...

Consumer Rights Bill — Report (3rd Day) (26 November 2014) See 12 other results from this debate

Baroness Shields: ...an option to turn them on again. This process has been under way for the past 18 months. The same is true of the mobile operators, and Minister Vaizey has written to them all this past month to make sure that they are complying with age-related content filters. The points that have been made here are absolutely vital, but to add additional regulation when we are getting voluntary...

Deferred Divisions: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (26 November 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

James Brokenshire: ...for the comments that have been made and add my best wishes to the right hon. Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), whom I hope will celebrate his birthday after the debate has concluded. I am sure we all wish him well on this special occasion. A number of questions were asked. The hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) asked whether we could review the definition of...

Opposition Day: Government Policies (Wales) (26 November 2014) See 15 other results from this debate

Alun Cairns: Of course, that is a matter for Ofgem, as an independent organisation. I know that it has made changes and I look forward to its further deliberations. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman recognises the major investment of 20 billion for Wylfa nuclear power station on Anglesey, which will create 6,000 construction jobs alone. Of course, such activity does not stop at hard infrastructure,...

Gleision Mine (26 November 2014)

Mark Harper: ..., in effect, re-answer the question that was dealt with at the trial and come up with either the same or a different answer. That is not possible. I listened to what the right hon. Gentleman said. I am sure the inspectors will endeavour to ensure that they go as far as they can in setting out the evidence—the facts that they found on the ground—but they may not be able to...

Opposition Day: [10th alloted day] — The Economy (26 November 2014) See 11 other results from this debate

Andrea Leadsom: ...been hit hard by this recession, and I know how genuinely difficult many people have found it. We owe it to them not just to improve their living standards through an economic recovery, but to make sure we never get into this mess again. That is why it is all about finding the right balance: between ensuring that those with the broadest shoulders take the biggest burden and ensuring the UK...

Illegal Encampments (East of England) — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (26 November 2014) See 8 other results from this debate

Brandon Lewis: ...return to the district as trespassers within three months, they are committing an offence. That is where Harlow council has let down residents and has misled my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow, as we clarified after our meeting. I am sure he will remember that, when we visited Harlow, the council said it was trying to take advantage and bid for the pot of Homes and Communities Agency...

Divorce: Effect on Children — Question (26 November 2014)

Lord Faulks: ...mediation and the creation of child arrangements orders as opposed to the old contact orders and residence orders, and presumes the involvement of each parent in the life of the child. I am sure that the House will agree that, whatever the difficulties in financial arrangements, the interests of the children must come first.

Income and Wealth Inequality — Question (26 November 2014)

Lord Newby: I am not sure that I do recollect altogether. It is important to look at inequalities as well as differences because there is an additional dimension in the word “inequality” to the neutral word “difference”.

Mental Health Services — Question (26 November 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Earl Howe: ...it is unacceptable for a child in a mental health crisis to be taken to a police cell. The mental health crisis care concordat, launched in February this year, reinforces the duty on the NHS to make sure that people aged under 18 are treated in an environment that is suitable for their age, according to their needs. It also makes it clear for the first time that adult places of safety...

Bill Presented — Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill: Dogs (Registration) (26 November 2014)

Julie Hilling: ...on good owners and that irresponsible owners will not pay, but we do not accept that argument for good drivers and irresponsible drivers, or responsible workers and irresponsible workers; we ensure that everyone pays, and if they do not, we take enforcement action. I am sure, in the future, I will argue in this Chamber for further measures to protect dogs and prevent dog attacks, but today...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Shipbuilding (26 November 2014)

Anne McGuire: I am sure many on the Opposition Benches would echo the comments about the new First Minister and wish her well. The Secretary of State gave a slightly nuanced answer. I wonder if he will state categorically that the Type 26 frigates will be built, and perhaps he could throw some light on why the First Sea Lord felt he could make the comments that threw into doubt the proposals for those frigates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Living Wage (26 November 2014)

Margaret Curran: As we approach the first anniversary of the tragedy, I am sure the whole House will join me in remembering the victims of the Clutha helicopter crash that happened in my own city. Our thoughts will be with the victims and their families this Saturday. Does the Minister agree that the living wage is a means of addressing the scandal of low pay in Scotland, and that tackling low pay should be a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (26 November 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

David Cameron: ...8217;s watch. Since the election, we have seen 600,000 fewer people in relative poverty, 670,000 fewer workless households, and 300,000 fewer children in poverty. The other point about the report—I am sure the House will want to hear this—is that it covers only the income figures up to April 2013. It says: “since the middle of last year, there have been huge increases in...

International Development and Disability (26 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Desmond Swayne: ...people, 80% live in developing countries. One in seven of the world’s poorest people are disabled. She quoted the figure from Sightsavers for extreme poverty, which is one in five, although I am not sure whether the figure is even higher. The unemployment figure for Burma is 3.5% among the population at large, but 80% of disabled people have no means of providing for themselves. I do...

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

Mark Harper: .... It was interesting to hear about the GMB survey. If I heard the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) correctly—I am disappointed he could not stay for my response to his questions, but I am sure he will read it in Hansard tomorrow—he referred to 2,700 or so employees. As there were not that many disabled employees employed by Remploy enterprises when the...

Care Sector — Motion to Take Note (25 November 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Earl Howe: ..., safe delegation and effective supervision. Putting people on a centrally held register does not guarantee public protection. Instead, the key is for employers, commissioners and providers to make sure that they have the right processes in place to ensure that they have the right staff with the right skills to deliver the right care. Systems and processes are already in place to provide...

EU: UK Membership — Motion to Take Note: 6.44 pm (25 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Liddle: ...very comprehensive, robust and intelligent response. She might be surprised by how much I agree with what she said. I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, for her excellent maiden speech. I am sure that we shall have many debates on this key issue of our times and that she will make a notable contribution to them. I also emphasise that my passion for making the case for Europe and...
