Backbench Business: Antibiotics: Research and Development — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Apr 2016)

George Freeman: I leave Mr Evans for five minutes and he transforms into you, Mr Hollobone. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve under your chairmanship. We are three years into our strategy and we have put building blocks in place, including better data and guidance and a strengthened framework for antimicrobial stewardship. I want to highlight one or two areas of progress. The first is surveillance....

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Power to issue bulk acquisition warrants (26 Apr 2016)

John Hayes: ...emphasises that a test of necessity and proportionality must be applied to all these matters, but also makes it clear that the operational purposes of the warrant are salient, too. Ms Dorries, we had a debate in your absence about whether the operational case should be explored in more detail at the outset. Like the hon. and learned Gentleman, I will not reprise that debate, but for your...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Bulk interception warrants (21 Apr 2016)

...internal memo goes on to say: “Another area of concern is the use of the database as a ‘convenient way’ to check the personal details of colleagues when filling out service forms on their behalf. Please remember that every search has the potential to invade the privacy of individuals, including individuals who are not the main subject of your search, so please make sure...

Brain Tumours — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2016)

Iain Stewart: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I add my congratulations to those that have been offered to the hon. Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones), who spoke to the motion so powerfully. In addition to the moving personal stories that some of my constituents have told me, one of my motivations for speaking today is that I am proud to have in my constituency the...

Technology and People: Deloitte Report - Question for Short Debate (13 Apr 2016)

Lord Borwick: ...means a new thing, and, as in the 16th century, whenever we hear about the impact of technology on the jobs market these days, it is almost always negative. The headlines are terrifying: robots will take your job and industry will cull thousands of employees to make way for cheaper machines. It is straightforward to show how many jobs a machine can take away from humans. The minus side of...

Sustainable Development Goals (13 Apr 2016)

Patrick Grady: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bath (Ben Howlett) on securing this debate. This is first debate on various aspects of the SDGs since the goals were agreed but—I have used the shiny new Hansard search facility—about the fourth since the start of the Session. There was, not least, my own debate in Westminster Hall on...

Northern Ireland (Stormont Agreement and Implementation Plan) Bill - Second Reading (12 Apr 2016)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: ...a settlement is arrived at in which the victims of the years of violence and their families can have these issues resolved. I wish to concentrate my remarks on the security issues within the Bill. I remind your Lordships of my interests in the register, particularly those relating to the police. Clauses 1 to 5 deal with the setting up of the Independent Reporting Commission, which will...

Backbench Business: Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (12 Apr 2016)

Jane Ellison: I will do my best, Mr Stringer. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. In the time available, and leaving a couple of minutes at the end, I will not be able to cover all the points raised in this excellent debate. I have never seen the Chamber this full at this time on a Tuesday morning, which is testimony to the importance of this subject. I start by thanking the hon. Member for...

Panama Papers - Statement (11 Apr 2016)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...? If it is not, what is the penalty? The Statement also says that there will be new legislation this year, “to apply to corporations who fail to prevent their representatives from criminally facilitating tax evasion”. Your Lordships’ House will appreciate that that is not a new announcement. In fact, the Government have already consulted on this, and published the...

European Council: March 2016 — Statement (21 Mar 2016)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: .... She may have noticed when she was speaking that noble Lords were flicking through the Statement that was released, because the last part that she read out was not released to the Opposition or to your Lordships’ House in the usual way. I do not imply any discourtesy, but I suspect that the crescendo that we heard in defence of compassionate Conservativism at the end probably had...

[Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Cabin Air Safety/Aerotoxic Syndrome (17 Mar 2016)

Jonathan Reynolds: I beg to move, That this House has considered cabin air safety and aerotoxic syndrome. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Mrs Gillan. I thank the Backbench Business Committee for granting this debate, and I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Brent Central (Dawn Butler) and the hon. Member for Altrincham and Sale West (Mr Brady) for joining me in my application. I...

Immigration Bill — Report (2nd Day) (15 Mar 2016)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...first to government Amendments 82 and 83. During Committee the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, raised concerns that the Secretary of State’s ability to direct prison and prisoner custody officers to search persons in respect of whom she “intends to make” a deportation order was too wide. While the noble Lord accepted our assurance that it was the Government’s intention to...

Battle of the Somme: Centenary — Question for Short Debate (14 Mar 2016)

Lord Lexden: ...Cathedral, Belfast, on 1 July, attended by the Lord Lieutenant, to remember Ulster’s sacrifice. There and in many other places church services will remind us of the fine young musicians and composers who died. A century later, the search for answers still goes on. Were the allies’ strategy and tactics misconceived? Were the allied commanders incompetent? Was Sir Douglas Haig a...

Human Rights Framework: Scotland (2 Mar 2016)

Joanna Cherry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairpersonship, Mrs Main. My hon. Friend the Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Richard Arkless), who secured this debate, made it clear that he specifically wanted to talk about legalities. He has argued that human rights are integral to the devolution settlement, and he referred to the fact that the European convention on human rights is written into...

European Union: Refugees — Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2016)

Lord Bates: ...there cannot be an ounce of schadenfreude—the term I think the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich, used—about what is happening there. I was reminded as they were talking of the aphorism that if you do not visit your problem neighbourhoods, then your problem neighbourhoods will visit you. That works in a domestic setting and certainly in an international one. As the noble Lord, Lord...

Public Bill Committee: Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords]: Clause 27 - Enforceability of credit agreements made through unauthorised persons (23 Feb 2016)

Rob Marris: ...appear to facilitate and encourage that kind of behaviour. I hope that the Minister will be able to reassure me. It is possible that I have misunderstood what the new section will do and what transformer vehicles do, and that my fear about the risks involved is unfounded. I am not necessarily expecting her to do that now. I hope that she will catch your eye, Mr Brady, and reply to these...
