Guy Opperman: ...authorities to encourage greater competition. Secondly, having passed that legislation, notwithstanding Labour opposition, we tackled the length and complexity of the authorisation process. Setting up a new bank traditionally took years and a huge amount of money. We all want greater competition, and for the FSA to abbreviate the process—in planning, this is done through a...

George Eustice: ...minute 20 seconds. That is still quite a lot of time, but it is why France has a cut-off point of 1 minute 30 seconds, after which a post-cut stun is required. At the other extreme, I have met former staff of the FSA who have told me that they have seen shechita abattoirs do this particularly effectively, with the animal collapsing within 10 seconds. It is also clear that in many of these...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Third Reading (9 February 2015)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ...”. He did not answer any of the points. As the noble Lord, Lord Butler, said, a lot of this is pretty unworkable. It reminds me, as I think it reminded the noble Lord, a little of some regulation put forward by the FSA and the FCA. There is a lot of box-ticking in this. I am sure that the concessions the Minister has made on academic freedom are very important. I am sure that they...

Public Bill Committee: Corporation Tax (Northern Ireland) Bill: Clause 1 - Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (5 February 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...the range of services they could offer compared with their counterparts in the south of Ireland or Great Britain. The way to ensure that they could offer more services was to have them regulated by the FSA and now its successors, the FCA and PRA. There are problems with that, though I will not bore the Committee with some of the difficulties that arise around that regulation and...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 February 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Wilson of Dinton: ...the Government’s policies that they have the universities on side. They should be working with them rather than doing what this legislation will do, which is to generate huge amounts of paper—just like the FCA and the FSA—and laboured analysis to no good purpose. It will generate heat. It may generate conscientious objection. It will lose the universities. The Minister...

CCTV in Slaughterhouses (3 February 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

George Eustice: ...following the release of secret footage by Animal Aid. I was first made aware of the Animal Aid video on 6 January and I asked immediately to see some of the footage that Animal Aid had made available to the FSA. Like many others who will have seen the footage, I found the films distressing and gave my full support to the immediate enforcement action that was being taken. The FSA acted...

Lord Blencathra: ...—any public authorities which make a convincing case to get communications data should be listed in the Bill—that is, the important deserving ones such as the police, the security agencies, the FSA, the United Kingdom Border Agency, the NCA and HMRC. We said that any changes to this list should be made by super-affirmative procedure. We recommended that the Government should...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (26 January 2015)

Lord Blencathra: ...security services. My committee recommended that we should include the National Crime Agency, HMRC, which also does a lot of work on this, the United Kingdom Border Agency—or whatever we call it now—and the FSA, whatever that is called now too. Those big bodies make up 99% of all requests for data. The other 1% are all the extraneous other bodies. The committee also made some...

Joanne Dobson: .... It is proposed that the Food Standards Agency will have its budget reduced from 񍂩 million to 񌮼 million. Given that food hygiene official controls constitute over 60% of the entire FSA budget, how is the Minister sure that such a reduction will not impact on food safety standards, especially with regard to clamping down on the blight of cross-border smuggling...

Pension Schemes Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (12 January 2015)

Baroness Drake: ...greater choice and potentially more complex products will reduce consumer confidence and weaken the competitive pressures on providers to offer good value. Even after repeated analysis of these issues by the Treasury, the FSA, the FCA and others over a period of six years, and just three months away from the introduction of major reforms to the UK pensions framework in April 2015, too many...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Gun Sports (17 December 2014)

Jane Ellison: In October 2012, the Food Standards Agency assessed the risk to human health from exposure to lead from lead bullets and shot used to shoot wild game animals.

George Eustice: I can tell the hon. Lady that there is a project being run by the FSA and BOC to try to develop a treatment system of blast-chilling poultry to deal with this disease.
