European Union Committee: Report on 2013-14 (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

The Earl of Caithness: My Lords, I am the new boy to the European Union Committee, having joined it in May, so it is not for me to sing the praises of what the committee does. I will leave that to the words of Maroa `efcovic, the Commissioner for Inter-Institutional Relations, when he stated in evidence to the committee, quoted at paragraph 1 of our report, that, “the House of Lords is one of the...

Agriculture and Food Industry — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Baroness Northover: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Plumb for calling this important debate, not least because it enables us to emphasise the huge contribution that our farmers and those in our food industry make to the economy. I feel immensely privileged to be answering the noble Lord. This is my opportunity to tell him that, when I was young, I recall my father, a tenant farmer, speaking in...

Health: Organic Food — Question for Short Debate (24 July 2014)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, this has been an interesting debate and I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Taverne for prompting it.

We need to set this debate in a wider context. Noble Lords will be well aware of the...

Universal Declaration of Human Rights — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, I am afraid that in the very short time I have, because we are running a little in this debate, it will be impossible to respond to everybody on every point that has been made. I apologise for that. I was also going to apologise that, in this instance, I am summing up on something that is so very much the subject of my noble friend Lady Warsi. In preparing for this debate, I read...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (23 July 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am very conscious of the lateness of the hour and I shall be as brief as I possibly can. This amendment, together with Amendment 69 which follows it, seeks to deal with matters which may have been overlooked when the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 was passing through Parliament. They both relate to the Supreme Court, provision for which was made in Part 3 of the Act. I tabled both...

Lord Low of Dalston: My Lords, I am grateful to all those who have spoken in this debate. It bears out my contention that there is concern about this issue across the House. Indeed, that concern is shared by the Government. Like the Minister, I would hope that we are not yet at the end of this discussion and that discussions and work can continue with a view to finding a solution around which we can all unite. We...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals): Backbench Business — Summer Adjournment (22 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Chris Bryant: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bosworth (David Tredinnick) on his speech. I disagreed with every word of it. I was intrigued to hear that he is the chair of what I think he called the Government herb committee. That conjured images from my childhood of the television programme, “The Herbs”. Parsley the Lion, Dill the Dog, Lady Rosemary and Bayleaf the Gardener all went...

Healthier Together Programme (Greater Manchester) — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (22 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

David Nuttall: The hon. Lady makes a good point. The vast majority of the public would, in an ideal world, like every service to be provided at their local hospital, so that they could have everything just by travelling a couple of miles. In a perfect world, they would have every conceivable treatment available at their nearest hospital. However, they have long since accepted, and we all know, that that is...

It is a pleasure to follow all the speakers, as it will be to listen to those who follow. I am pleased that the issue has been raised today, although I feel that we do not remind ourselves of it often enough. It is good to...

Written Answers — Northern Ireland: Electoral Register (22 July 2014)

Andrew Murrison: The Electoral Office has provided me with the following table listing the estimated registration rates for the 100 wards in Northern Ireland with the highest electoral registration rates. These are based on population estimates based on the 2011 census and may under or overstate the true population from area to area. Because of these inaccuracies, some percentages exceed 100% and actual...

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Pension Credit (22 July 2014)

Steve Webb: The full rate of the new State Pension will give an income above the basic means test, rewarding retirement income saving. It is estimated that in 2020 around 10% of pensioner households receiving the new State Pension, around 200,000 benefit units, in Great Britain would be eligible for the Savings Credit element of Pension Credit if it had not been removed for people who reached State...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Armed Conflict: Sexual Offences (22 July 2014)

In addition, it significantly raised the profile of this issue and placed it firmly on the international policy agenda....

The presentation of Kew’s accounts has evolved over the years and they have moved to reporting in terms of ‘restricted’ and ‘unrestricted’ DEFRA funding from 2013-14. DEFRA places no restrictions on its core or operational funding...
