Cyber-Bullying and Digital Anonymity (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Michael Penning: ...in law there is no difference between standing in front of someone and abusing them and doing it online? That is very important, and we have seen some significant cases coming before the courts recently to make sure everybody understands that. Let me touch briefly on three points, and in particular the anonymous nature of trolls. It is an obvious thing to say that someone should have their...

Backbench Business: Oral Hormone Pregnancy Tests (23 October 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Yasmin Qureshi: I thank the Minister for that reassurance. I am sure that those from the victims’ association who are watching the debate will be reassured too. I thank the Minister again for what the Department has offered to do. We hope it will be done speedily and that there will be a resolution. As we know, many of the victims are now approaching their 40s and 50s. Their medical conditions are...

[Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] — Communicating Climate Science (23 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Amber Rudd: ...risks of sudden and irreversible climate disruption. However, alongside these risks, we must talk about the benefits that can flow from tackling climate change. Our priority for communicating on climate change is to make sure that the importance and urgency of action on climate change continues to be heard, despite the weight of other concerns and other news. We recently laid out the case...

Backbench Business: Repeal of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 (23 October 2014) See 7 other results from this debate

Sam Gyimah: ...the case for shorter, and indeed longer, Parliaments has been made. In the 17th century—in 1641 and again in 1694—we had Triennial Acts requiring Parliament to be called every three years; I am sure the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Austin Mitchell) would agree with that. From 1716 we had the Septennial Act, setting the maximum duration of a Parliament at seven years. That...

Points of Order (23 October 2014)

John Bercow: ...—has always been a person of his word who treats this House with the utmost respect. Secondly, the hon. Gentleman has been here for 35 years, and if there is a feeling of unhappiness on his part, I am sure he can talk to the Leader of the House. As to whether I regularly talk to the Leader of the House, of course I do, and I am quite happy to have a chat with him about this. Because...

Business of the House (23 October 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

William Hague: The House has debated this issue over the past few years. I am not sure that Scots are the only objectors, as in North Yorkshire we would also be plunged into darkness quite early in the morning. There are many different views on the matter around the House, but it is, of course, open to my right hon. Friend, who feels strongly about it, to pursue it. There have been private Members’...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Congestion (23 October 2014)

John Hayes: ...Scarborough and Whitby (Mr Goodwill). All new road schemes must take account of cycling provision, and, although I am never unnecessarily partisan in this Chamber, as you know, Mr Speaker, I am not sure that previous Governments could have claimed that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road Improvements (Nettleton Bottom and Crickley Hill) (23 October 2014)

John Bercow: No. I am not going to call the right hon. Gentleman because Nettleton Bottom and Crickley Hill are a very long way from Newcastle. We will hear from him later, I feel sure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (23 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

John Bercow: I am sure copies will be placed subsequently in the Library, preferably signed by the right hon. Gentleman.

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (22 October 2014) See 11 other results from this debate

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...if there had been some kind of protection around her. There may be cases where the protection is essential; there may be others where it would be unwise if convictions are to be obtained. I am sure the Government will wish to think very carefully about the extremely important points that have been raised. It does require quite careful scrutiny.

Northern Ireland: Haass Talks — Question for Short Debate (22 October 2014)

Lord Alderdice: ...mean everything and all responsibilities being handed over to people in Northern Ireland. This was a three-stranded process. The British and Irish Governments were the driver for the peace process—making sure that things continued and in the end came to a good conclusion. They retain a responsibility for making sure that it does not all fall to pieces—and, by the way, it is in...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Report (2nd Day) (22 October 2014) See 8 other results from this debate

Lord Ramsbotham: ...hope, however, that during this process between now and 2017 the same spirit of engagement between the Ministry of Justice, the Youth Justice Board and Members of both Houses will continue. As I am sure the Minister has detected, there is considerable interest, not just in the introduction of the secure college but in its method; we are particularly concerned about its ability to deal with...

Petition — Minor Injuries Unit at Cossham Hospital (Kingswood): Historic Child Abuse Allegations (22 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Tessa Munt: ...will know of my concern about the Ministry of Defence being able to hide details and incidents relating to child sexual abuse by covering it with the system of courts martial. May I urge him to make sure the Home Office pushes very hard for the MOD not to use that process to hide things, and to make sure any case that involves the MOD is put into the civil courts and dealt with properly?

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Military Covenant (22 October 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Andrew Murrison: ...figure, if I may put it that way, and we must now be pretty close to parity in practical terms. We will always have instances where we want improvement, and I am always happy to hear from people about such instances. I am sure that the Minister of State, Ministry of Defence, my hon. Friend the hon. Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry), is happy to hear from colleagues about instances of our...

Development Projects (Afghanistan) (22 October 2014)

Stephen McCabe: .... In her reply to that debate, the Minister—the Under-Secretary of State for International Development, the right hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Lynne Featherstone)—did not mention the memorandum of understanding that had been signed in mid-February 2011, but I am sure that she must have been familiar with the terms of that agreement and how it limited the capacity of...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: National Crime Agency (22 October 2014) See 11 other results from this debate

Ian Paisley Jnr: ...friends of a certain organisation appear to be benefiting from the current situation. The right hon. Gentleman, a distinguished Member of the House, would probably know, because he has just left government and I am sure papers have crossed his desk showing what is happening. If so, it is the strongest reason why the Government should implement the NCA over the heads of the Assembly and...

Environmental Challenges (Somerset) (22 October 2014)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...right hon. Friend the Member for North Shropshire, and the present Secretary of State have made it clear to the Environment Agency that plans for the funding need to be in place to make absolutely sure that they go into the autumn statement—which I believe will be on 3 December 2014—so that we can get the money to get this done. My hon. Friend the Member for Taunton Deane...

Foreign National Offenders — Statement (22 October 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Dholakia: My Lords, we have bilateral arrangements with a number of countries about prison transfers. Is it not possible to look again at these arrangements to make sure that foreign nationals serve their sentences in the country of their origin, thus relieving pressure on resources and staffing in the United Kingdom?

Hong Kong — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (22 October 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Hugo Swire: ...Office submitted its written evidence to the Foreign Affairs Committee inquiry on Hong Kong. I should also point out to my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester, who I know is a modern man, that I also tweeted, as I am sure he would have seen during that period. Hong Kong has also been discussed by my right hon. Friends the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary in a number of meetings,...

Ebola — Question (22 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Baroness Northover: ...€1 billion from European countries. All embassies across Europe are very active in seeking funds for this extremely important and pressing crisis. The key thing about hospital ships is to make sure that there is capacity in Sierra Leone rather than seeing capacity as being offshore. In terms of being flown home, as my noble friend Lord Howe said the other day, sometimes it is not in...
