Bosnia and Herzegovina — Question for Short Debate (21 October 2014)

Baroness Morgan of Ely: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Ashdown, for initiating this debate and for demonstrating such passion for an area for which clearly he still has a strong affection to this day. I think that it is fair to say that, prior to the elections a couple of weeks ago, the situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina was not great. However, I will try to be a bit like my noble friend Lord Lea and look on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Schedule 1 (The Education Authority) (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

John O'Dowd: ...in the board, with over a third of the board changing over every four years to keep continuity in the body.  As an unashamed political activist, I am not going to pick on political representations for the sake of it.  Moving on to amendment No 18, which refers to the appointment of the chief executive, again I urge Members to consider this very carefully.  I am going to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Noes (21 October 2014)

John Dallat: Amendment 12 is mutually exclusive with amendment No 11, which has not been made, and with amendment Nos 13, 14, and 15.  Before I put the Question, I remind Members that amendment No 12 requires cross-community support due to a valid petition of concern.  I have been advised by the party Whips that in accordance with Standing Order 27(1A)(b) there is agreement that we can dispense...

High Speed 2 (Compensation) (21 October 2014)

Cheryl Gillan: The hon. Gentleman has made a very valid point, and I shall say more about it shortly. There are problems with the current compensation proposals. They will compensate only about 2% of those who live within 1 km of HS2, or within 250 metres from a tunnel. As the hon. Gentleman has just pointed out, despite widespread evidence of blight, the vast majority of people affected by HS2 will not be...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill: Programme (21 October 2014)

Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 83A(7)), That the following provisions shall apply to the Recall of MPs Bill: Committal (1) The Bill shall be committed to a Committee of the whole House. Proceedings in Committee (2) Proceeding in Committee of the whole House shall be completed in three days. (3) the proceedings shall be taken on the days shown in the...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill: Money (21 October 2014)

Queen’s recommendation signified. Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No.52(1)(a), That, for the purposes of an Act resulting from the Recall of MPs Bill, it is expedient to authorise: (1) the payment out of the Consolidated Fund of sums required by a Minister of the Crown for making payments to petition officers relating to their functions under or by virtue of the...

Deregulation Bill: Committee (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, Clauses 11 and 12 cover separate, different but sensible measures. Obviously, a thought for safety penetrates all of our thinking as we address this range of issues. To pick up on the issue raised by my noble friend Lord Bradshaw and explained by others, particularly my noble friend Lord Greaves, the amendments do not in any way change the rules on vehicle licences. Those are tough...

BT Openreach (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Edward Vaizey: .... I have ensured that key executives from Openreach are within 50 yards of the hon. Gentleman, to take up his constituency case the minute this debate finishes. It has been a bit of a broadband day for me. I started in the television studios of “Rip Off Britain”, with the great Angela Rippon, Gloria Hunniford and Julia Somerville, talking about broadband speeds, where, to my...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Clause 2 (Functions of the Authority) (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Trevor Lunn: It has certainly been an interesting morning, and most of the afternoon.  First, I will deal with accelerated passage.  Mr McCallister has consistently opposed that procedure.  In the normal way, so we would we; and I think he probably knows that.  However, as the Minister has just said, this is a six-clause Bill.  We were in a situation where the Minister came to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Grants to sectoral bodies (21 October 2014)

Michelle McIlveen: Throughout the various incarnations of the Education Bill that have come before the House, the DUP has consistently advocated the controlled sector being afforded the same representative rights as every other sector in education in Northern Ireland.  One of the many fundamental concerns that we had about the first Education Bill was that the controlled sector was being placed at a clear...

Domestic Energy Efficiency (21 October 2014)

Graham Jones: ...I want to focus on the effect of the Government’s changes to the energy companies obligation on domestic energy efficiency and the local schemes to improve efficiency in my area. I welcome the opportunity to discuss those things with the Minister. When the ECO was devised, the architects of the scheme aimed to improve the energy efficiency of dwellings exactly like those in...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014)

Angus MacNeil: ...as the United States of America in that respect, although it would be wrong to say that the influence of money is negligible in politics at whatever level, including general elections, by-elections or, perhaps, recall elections. Some Members have argued that a general election is a form of recall, but I dispute that. Should a Member face recall, they will be facing recall on one point,...

Separated Families Initiative — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Kate Green: I share my hon. Friend’s concern and I find it puzzling that it was so late in the organisation of the pilots that we began to see efforts to address that specific and challenging group of separated parents. It is hard to imagine how people would be able to make a private arrangement easily with someone with whom they have had no contact or only hostile contact for a long time. I am...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business : Clause 2 (Functions of the Authority) (21 October 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Pat Sheehan: ...course of action that you refer to.  I wholeheartedly agree that schools should be the hub of any community and their facilities should be available to the community, whether they are educational, sporting or whatever.  The amendment on its own will not bring that about.  For that reason and that reason only I oppose the amendment. I will move on to amendment Nos 1 and 2, on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Jeremy Hunt: There is pressure throughout the NHS because there are nearly 1 million more over-65s than there were four years ago, which puts pressure on GPs, as it does on any department or hospital providing elective care. However, this is not just about getting an appointment; it is also about ensuring that GPs have personal responsibility for the patients on their list and are accountable for the care...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business : Off-street Parking (Functions of District Councils) Bill:  Second Stage (21 October 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Danny Kennedy: I am grateful to the Member for his point.  In Belfast and in other places, car parks owned and managed by the Department continue to play an important role for car parking provision.  Of course, we look on an ongoing basis at proposals put to us.  When regeneration or redevelopment schemes come forward, it will be the duty of councils to examine the possible benefits and the...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Relationships and Children’s Well-being (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

John Glen: I agree absolutely that we must look at how relationships are formed in the home and recognise that families exist in a wide range of sometimes sad circumstances. We must not be squeamish about being honest about messy situations, but recognise that solid family relationships give children the best platform to develop good and meaningful lives in society. I want to focus on the importance of...

Written Ministerial Statements — Electoral Commission Committee: Individual Electoral Registration (21 October 2014)

South West Devon: (Representing the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission): The Electoral Commission has today published a report containing an analysis of the confirmation live run exercise that took place in England and Wales over the summer and which forms the first stage in the transition to individual electoral registration (IER). The report also summarises general...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Report (1st Day) (20 October 2014) See 19 other results from this debate

Lord Faulks: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Beecham, often sounds ministerial, and from comments that he may have made earlier this afternoon he is clearly anticipating events in May when he will be able to perform that task. I do find myself in the rare position of agreeing with his comments generally about these amendments, in that they have appeared very late—late even among the amendments that...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 3 — Responsibility (20 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Andy Slaughter: I am not going to go down that route today. The Lord Chancellor does not often grace the House with his presence on Justice Bills any more, or take part in these debates, so it is almost as though he has absented himself from the legal world entirely. We wish him good luck with his future career, whatever discipline he chooses next to address. I take comfort from the Law Society’s...
