Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: University of Ulster:  Magee Expansion (16 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Ross Hussey: ...pleased to speak this evening on a matter that affects the maiden city of Londonderry. As you can see, I am the only unionist here to do that, but I am pleased to be here to do so. I welcome the opportunity to speak on behalf of the Ulster Unionist Party in the Adjournment debate on the expansion of the Magee campus of the University of Ulster. In doing so, I am conscious that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Altnagelvin Hospital (16 September 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Colum Eastwood: Members will note that the wording of the motion was designed to be helpful rather than critical. Most of the debate has shown that we have support right across the House for what needs to be done. There is obviously a recognition of the financial difficulties. There is obviously going to be a bit of discussion and debate around why we are in those financial difficulties and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Schedule 2 (Amendments) (16 September 2014)

David Ford: I beg to move amendment No 14:In page 9, line 12, leave out "the first".

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Clause 1 (Dissolution of Northern Ireland Legal Services Commission) (16 September 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

David Ford: Yes, I can confirm to Mr McCartney that it would not merely have to come to the Justice Committee. Because it is subject to draft affirmative procedure, it would have to come to the Floor of the Assembly and not just to the Committee. That is a double safeguard in that respect. It may be helpful to give Members an example of where I might want to consider a direction under these...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business : Public Petition: Elective Home Education (16 September 2014)

Mervyn Storey: Thank you, Mr Principal Deputy Speaker. I present the petition, which asks the Minister of Education and the Northern Ireland education and library boards to ensure that the education and library boards' policy on home education accurately reflects their legal status, duties and powers, and respects the parents' duty to provide an education.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Tributes to the Rt Hon Lord Bannside, Former First Minister (15 September 2014)

Stephen Moutray: My first real-life experience of Dr Ian Paisley was in the early 1970s when he came to speak at political open-air rallies in the Mourneview estate in Lurgan. I remember him speaking from a platform, which comprised an open-top lorry, to a crowd of maybe some 500 people. Ian Paisley had a charisma that was lacking in unionism at that time. He appealed to all sections of the...

Primary School Places (Bromley) (12 September 2014)

Jim Dowd: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I was going to come to that. The issue has been resolved in the short term, but its impact persists and it has exposed a severe flaw in the system by which the Department for Education, the Education Funding Agency, local education authorities and local providers procure additional places. Let me detail the chronology of this case. I...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Philip Davies: ...Labour Members argue that we should be judged only on how much money we spend, it does not come as a great surprise, because that is what Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians have always argued for. I remember in the last Parliament asking why truancy under the then Labour Government was so terrible, and the Minister’s answer was: “We’ve spent 1 billion extra...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014)

Jim Murphy: I do not have much voice left to talk about referendums, so let us concentrate on one at a time. I thought the Minister made a good, passionate and personal speech. I am more surprised that the hon. Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh) is intending to vote against the manifesto commitment he stood on at the last general election than I am by anything the Minister said. Labour Members...

Mark Harper: The calculation of the cost of about 1 billion for the Affordable Homes Bill was made on Thursday 4th September by Departmental Officials following an assessment of the potential effects of the provisions set out in the draft Bill at Second Reading.

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 September 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Sarah Teather: ...be brief, as amendments 89 and 90 are probing amendments. They are designed to clarify exactly what the Government intend in terms of the purpose of schedule 3 and its relationship with the statutory defence. As the hon. Member for Foyle said, the schedule contains a very long list of offences for which the defence created in clause 39(1) will not apply. There are 134 different offences....

Flood Protection (West Kent) (11 September 2014)

Dan Rogerson: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley) on securing this debate, in which he has given us the benefit of his long-standing knowledge of this catchment and of the effects of its management during the time he has represented the area. To have one’s home or business flooded is a devastating experience. I know that all of us in the House...

Bill Presented — Recall of MPs Bill: Gurkha Pensions (11 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Anna Soubry: I thank the Backbench Business Committee for ensuring that the debate has come into this place. I also want to pay particular tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Thurrock (Jackie Doyle-Price). It is important that I set the record straight regarding certain comments by my hon. Friend the Member for Reading East (Mr Wilson), of whom I make no criticism. There might have been a...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — BacKBench Business — Kashmir (11 September 2014)

David Ward: My doubt is whether some people want a solution. We have a part to play, but I will come to that. In 2009, an opinion poll conducted by Chatham House provided more evidence, if that were needed, that the views of people on either side of the line of control differ widely on a range of issues. Wide differences also exist among the views of people from district to district, not only among those...

Bill Presented — Recall of MPs Bill: Backbench Business — Energy-intensive Industries (11 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

David Davies: The hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Angela Smith) has just said that nobody will argue against the principle of carbon taxation. First of all, I am going to argue absolutely against the principle of carbon taxation, and I shall briefly set out why. It is interesting to note that while not many people will argue against that principle, everyone in the Chamber has been arguing about...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 35 - General functions of Commissioner (11 September 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

Karen Bradley: I was going to deal with that issue shortly, but let me do so now. The Bill does not dictate how the commissioner will undertake the broad remit set out in clause 35(1). We believe there is no need for a statement to that effect. It is clear from clause 35(2) that the Bill is not dictating how the commissioner will undertake his or her remit; it gives only a few high-level examples of what...

Business of the House (11 September 2014)

William Hague: ...to the hon. Lady. What she has said about Jim Dobbin was one of many heartfelt tributes in the House this week. We will always keep the House updated—although we are entering a four-week recess for the conferences and the referendum—on developments in foreign affairs. Yesterday we had a foreign affairs debate in which many hon. Members took part. The Government will keep the...
