Baroness Uddin: ...to debate improving the criminal justice system for people with autism, and thank all noble Lords who have kindly made time to take part. I welcome this opportunity to bring to the attention of your Lordships the appalling experience that some people with autism have of our criminal justice system. I want to highlight the case of Faruk Ali, a 33 year-old autistic young man living with his...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Green Deal (22 January 2015)

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 50 - Injunctions to prevent gang-related violence and drug-dealing activity (15 January 2015)

Elfyn Llwyd: It is a great pleasure to serve under your able chairmanship, Ms Clark. The amendments aim to strengthen the clause, which introduces changes to the circumstances in which injunctions can be handed out to prevent gang-related violence. No one would object to that particular aspect. However, the new provisions make it clear that such injunctions can be given to offenders as young as 14 years...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Second Reading (13 January 2015)

Baroness Berridge: ...applauded, as the proposals in the Bill are some of the most complex to get right in human rights terms. France has not just brought home the serious security threat that we face, which no one in your Lordships’ House denies; the French have also shown us the best of responses, namely the bold assertions of our freedoms. It is one of the highest duties of the state to keep its...

Public Bill Committee: Control of Horses Bill: Clause 1 - Powers of local authorities in England to detain horses (8 January 2015)

Angela Smith: Mr Gray, I start by wishing you, the Committee, the Clerk and the officials a happy new year. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I rise to express the Opposition’s support for new clause 1 and the amendments, which extend the provisions of the Bill to private land in line with the instruction agreed on the Floor of the House just before the Christmas recess. That...

Roberta Blackman-Woods: ...an assessment of the impact it will have on local authorities; (c) an assessment of the impact it will have on businesses; and (d) an assessment of the impact it will have on home buyers and sellers.” It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood, and I wish you a happy new year. Currently, in England and Wales, a local land charge search is one of two searches...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Diverted Profits Tax (7 January 2015)

Ian Swales: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Turner. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills) on securing the debate. His initiative is excellent, given the enormity of what is proposed. There is something of a crisis in corporation tax: globalisation, the European Union and the internet have all given many more opportunities to move tax or profits around....

John Hayes: It is an immense joy, Mr Davies, to serve under your illustrious and benevolent chairmanship. I am pleased that the hon. Gentleman secured this debate on an important issue.

Their work is immensely valuable and I want to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate them on all they do to keep our shores and our people safe, not only the...

Autumn Statement — Statement (3 December 2014)

Lord Deighton: ...jobs and apprenticeships. For decades our economy has been too unbalanced, so we do more now to build the northern powerhouse. And today we back aspiration—the aspiration to save, to work, and to own your own home—in stark contrast to those who would hit people’s pensions and jobs and homes with higher taxes, for that is an approach that we entirely reject. Instead, we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 December 2014)

George Osborne: ...Thanks to the brilliant campaigns run by my hon. Friends the Members for Filton and Bradley Stoke (Jack Lopresti) and for Bristol North West (Charlotte Leslie) and others, we will use the LIBOR money for new helicopters for the Great Western air ambulance, and the Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance, too. I will go further and refund VAT for our search and rescue and air ambulance...

Deferred Divisions (2 December 2014)

Yasmin Qureshi: ...the police officer had been diligent. They will say that they are diligent; what needs to be challenged is whether taking away the document was a right and proper decision. We know from history that whenever powers of stop and search are introduced, they are always abused and they are quite often never properly implemented. We therefore need to be careful about these draconian powers and...

[Mark Pritchard in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Palestine (1 December 2014)

Alistair Burt: I thank you, Mr Pritchard, for your chairmanship, and I thank the hon. Member for Easington (Grahame M. Morris) for bringing forward the motion. He already made a significant contribution to the issue with the motion he proposed a couple of weeks ago. An insightful article in Prospect magazine recently concluded: “As one senior British official put it: ‘This is barely anymore...

Illegal Encampments (East of England) — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (26 November 2014)

Alan Haselhurst: Connoisseurs of parliamentary proceedings may find it wry that I have the honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Chope. I hope your mind is cleansed of those occasions when the roles were reversed and I may have had occasion to call you to order. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon) for giving us this opportunity to raise these issues—issues that I imagine...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Fracking (25 November 2014)

Michael Weir: I am pleased to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Gray, and I congratulate the right hon. Member for Lewes (Norman Baker) on securing this important debate. I should make it clear at the outset that I do not support fracking, for all the reasons set out by others, which I will not repeat. Even in Denton, Texas, the home of fracking, in a recent referendum people voted to end it. Other states...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Paul Quinn: Anniversary of his Murder (24 November 2014)

Alex Attwood: ...not here, I have some sense of what she might have said. The first thing is to again acknowledge the strength, dignity and resilience of victims and survivors, who regularly speak forth of their search for truth, justice and accountability. In my view, it is the victims and survivors who, unlike some in the Chamber, are again demonstrating the best standards for people on this island. My...

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 November 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho: ...the Government’s renewed focus on technology, founding Tech City and moving on to advise the Prime Minister on digital policy. Perhaps we should not find it surprising that a few weeks after entering your Lordships’ House, the noble Baroness, Lady Shields, has launched a free digital academy providing skills to help people move on in their careers. Watch out, noble...

Modern Slavery Bill — Second Reading (17 November 2014)

Lord Cashman: (Maiden Speech) My Lords, I rise for the first time in your Lordships’ noble House, and in so doing I respect the normal courtesies of thanks and recognition. But this time it is so very different. I seek no support, no sympathy in what I am about to say, because it is a matter of fact—though, to me, of huge significance. Three days before I was introduced to this noble House, my...

Infrastructure Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (5 November 2014)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...systems that perpetuate the current inconsistencies in levels of service and cost for the public. In some authorities a digital service is already available. Bolton Council holds a fully digital register and returns searches within one day. Its aim is to provide an, “end to end process where every customer has the same experience and that is what we now offer”. The Land...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Income Tax (5 November 2014)

Jeremy Browne: ...the public services in countries that have had a heavy dose of socialism. After all, people were only escaping over the Berlin wall in one direction. They were not trying to escape from the west to the east in search of a better quality of life or better public services. A lot of the dysfunctional countries with real social problems are those that do not raise enough money to be able to...
