Trade Union Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Feb 2016)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I have to say to the noble Lord that that is one of the silliest interventions that I have ever heard in this House. I am really sorry—I have been left off the list; I did not get the memo this morning. Perhaps I should ask my noble friend Lord Collins if I could have a badge too, please, as it might calm the noble Lord opposite. Seriously, though, I think that it is a rather silly...

Petition — Proposed Sale of the Kneller Hall Site: Autism Sunday Campaign (10 Feb 2016)

Cycling — Question for Short Debate (10 Feb 2016)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the House is incredibly lucky to have the noble Lord, Lord Young, free to talk about one of his favourite subjects.

He is one of the founders of the All-Party Parliamentary...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (10 Feb 2016)

I welcome the support my amendments had from the noble Lords, Lord Monks and Lord Collins, and the noble Baroness, Lady Donaghy. I shall pick up one point the Minister made. She said that by making the code statutory we are going to get consistency of approach to picketing because there will be a statutory obligation. Frankly, if she...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

David Hanson: My hon. Friend makes her point very well. As she says, we need not just high-level policing but community intelligence and reassurance, and people who know their communities and who work at a local level.

[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Asylum Support Contracts (10 Feb 2016)

Stephen Doughty: I am not aware of the specific history in Glasgow that the hon.

Before I express some detailed concerns about the COMPASS contracts and Clearsprings specifically, let us...
