Carbon Capture and Storage (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Tom Greatrex: .... I think that I recall discussing that very issue with my hon. Friend when the decision was made. It was an absurdity to have the top-rated project in Europe and not to achieve the NER 300 support because of the inability of the UK Government to find match funding when they had been saying that ú1 billion was available at that point within that comprehensive spending review period....

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, I am very pleased to wind up for the Government in this debate. In starting, I have to say that I find myself in agreement—it must be rare when the two Front-Bench spokespeople agree—especially with the first part of the speech of the noble Baroness about having three distinct experts in the House of Lords and the rest of us being digital tourists. I found myself in much...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (20 November 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Peter Lilley: Yes. I normally call myself a lukewarmist. I believe that the climate will warm a bit, which will probably be quite beneficial to parts of our country, although it could pose problems elsewhere. I do not deny that double the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere will increase the temperature by 1░ and a bit, plus or minus any effect due to positive or negative feedbacks. However, I do not...

Backbench Business: Money Creation and Society (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Mark Durkan: I rise to endorse the very significant points made by hon. Members. In particular, I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Wycombe (Steve Baker) for securing the debate and for opening it so strongly. From hearing him speak in Public Bill Committees on banking reform and related questions, I know that he is dubious about our having almost feng shui arguments on the regulatory furniture when...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Courts (20 November 2014)

Michael Penning: The Government’s new Victims’ Code sets out the support and information victims of crime can expect to receive from agencies at every stage of the criminal justice process. Priority victims – victims of the most serious crime, vulnerable or intimidated and persistently targeted victims – are entitled to receive enhanced support and services. The Victims’ Code...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Family Law (20 November 2014)

Simon Hughes: Parties with no legal representation are not a new phenomenon in our courts. We have taken steps to help people who either want or have to represent themselves in court. The new package of support announced on 23 October is aimed at keeping disputes away from court, while those who end up in court will be provided with better support. The Ministry of Justice has responsibility for courts in...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Cold Weather Payments: Scotland (20 November 2014)

Steve Webb: The Cold Weather Payment scheme is administered at weather station level rather than any other standard GB geography such as postcode level. The coverage area for each weather station is determined by the Met Office which assesses the most appropriate weather station for each postcode area, which may change between years. Cold weather payments are triggered when the average temperature has...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Council Housing (20 November 2014)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: We encourage local authorities to work closely with their communities to look at the range of options open to them. This may include forming community led groups, such as co-operatives, Community Land Trusts or Tenant Management Organisations. My officials continue to discuss issues affecting co-operative housing more generally with the co-operative sector. Council tenants have the Right to...

Consumer Rights Bill — Report (19 November 2014) See 13 other results from this debate

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 28 and I emerge once again from my long and deep perusal of Hansard, having not been present in Committee. I want to focus on the important matter that has been raised by my noble friend Lady Oppenheim-Barnes on the question of displaying rights at the point of sale. I have read the amendment carefully, but I want to focus initially on a couple of...

Opposition Day: [Unallotted Half-Day] — EU Justice and Home Affairs Measures (19 November 2014)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: May I begin by thanking the shadow Home Secretary for bringing forward this debate? In a wonderful spirit of bipartisanship, she has spared the Prime Minister and the Home Secretary their honour. Thanks to the right hon. Lady, the Prime Minister’s promise to have a debate on the European arrest warrant has been met. That shows an admirable, broad-minded, good-spiritedness although we...

Central African Republic (19 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Tobias Ellwood: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bayley. I thank the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg) for securing this debate on the situation in the Central African Republic. The hon. Gentleman and I are old friends. We first discussed politics—we did not spar—in the ’80s when he was president of the National Union of Students and I was president...

Infrastructure Bill [HL]: Third Reading (19 November 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, I think that we are all at the same place on this. My argument against the amendments of the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, is that they are unnecessary, because the issue is entirely covered in the language that I hope we will be bringing into the Bill through amendment, if your Lordships agree. The amendments prevent the transfer of any land held by the Secretary of State that has...

Lord Lea of Crondall: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have made any proposal to other European Union member states, either severally or collectively, which would limit (1) the right of United Kingdom citizens to live and work in other European Union member states, or (2) the parallel right of citizens of other European Union member states to live and work in the United Kingdom.

National Health Service and Care Sector Workers (Credit Union and High Cost Credit): Clause 144 — Amount of financial penalty for underpayment of national minimum wage (19 November 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Jo Swinson: So far 30 employers have been named and shamed, and, as I said in Committee, there will be a further tranche of naming and shaming shortly. The previous system was much more permissive in terms of the number of cases in which naming could operate. Until the new rules were introduced, only one employer had been named over a period of many years. We introduced those rules on 1 October 2013,...
