Schools: Reforms — Motion to Take Note (29 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...the recent reports of faith-free schools—my noble friend Lord Farmer and the noble Baroness, Lady Massey came at this from very different perspectives. We have made clear our expectation that all schools should actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs....

Exports: Government Support — Motion to Take Note (29 January 2015)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...am not alone in enjoying the way that she smiles as she damns with faint praise. The title of the debate is intriguing. We are asked in this debate to “take note” of the Government’s support for British exports—not to judge it, to praise it or to revile it, just to note it. That is obviously easy to do. I noticed a few criticisms in the noble Baroness’s...

Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: New Clause 13 — Cycling and Walking Investment Strategies (26 January 2015)

Julian Huppert: ...to talk to him, and I am glad he has managed to deliver on what he knows is the right thing. This amendment has been backed not only by the cycling organisations, but by health organisations—all of them, ranging from the British Heart Foundation to Age UK, to Macmillan, and to Rethink Mental Illness. This is clearly a popular thing to do, therefore. This Government have made progress...

Museums: Funding — Question for Short Debate (26 January 2015)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...sites in Leeds and Portsmouth, the Tate has galleries in Cornwall and Liverpool, and the Natural History Museum has a collection in Tring. In total, DCMS has funded 2 billion for the 15 museums and the British Library over the life of this Parliament. In addition, the Government also provide funding to museums in the regions through the Arts Council, which is the development...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill: Second Reading (23 January 2015)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...this achievement for years to come. We have delivered this in close partnership with Conservative colleagues equally committed in recent years to securing this goal. We have built our joint work on the very strong foundations laid down by the Labour Party, which made considerable progress after its election in 1997, especially in the commitments given in the 2004 spending review and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Emergency Life-saving Skills (19 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Justin Tomlinson: Of the 30,000 cardiac arrests that occur outside the hospital setting each year, only one in 10 people survive. Will the Minister agree to meet me and the British Heart Foundation to discuss how, in countries where two hours of emergency life-saving skills are taught, survival rates often increase to up to 50%?

Natural Environment — Motion to Take Note (15 January 2015)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare my interests as they appear in the register, particularly that I am a trustee of the British Lung Foundation. I welcome this debate, as all too often the push to reduce emissions and improve our green spaces means that we spend a lot of money on the wrong things. The result is more regulations and higher taxes, which push up the cost of living. The hardest hit are often...

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Steel Industry (14 January 2015)

John Healey: I welcome this debate and I also welcome its timing, because 2015 will be a critical year for the British steel industry. At the heart of the motion is a call for the Government to recognise the importance of the industry in the UK and to work with it and the trade unions to come up with a co-ordinated plan for its future. I hope that this debate will help to achieve that aim. The general...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments (9 December 2014)

Lord Ramsbotham: ...Lords will not be surprised to hear that I find that totally unsatisfactory. I have a confession to make about the whole secure college proposal. For the first time in my life, I feel ashamed to be British because I am so appalled that anyone should have dreamt it up, let alone tried to blandish Parliament with spurious claims that an entirely untested and unevaluated proposal involving...

Maria Miller: ...5G research and development into businesses of the future. We will be working with Surrey university’s innovation centre and a consortium of Huawei, Samsung, Fujitsu and many others to ensure that that incredible research is grown into British businesses. That is an exciting opportunity for my community and something that we are well placed to do, because of the incredible skills...

Schools: Arts Education — Motion to Take Note (27 November 2014)

Baroness Sharp of Guildford: ...beauty. That is why no education can be complete, indeed no programme of education can even begin, without making the arts and creativity central to a child’s life … England’s many successful schools put culture at the heart of their curriculum and we want all schools to be able to emulate, indeed surpass, those which are currently outstanding … We will encourage...

Religion and Belief: British Public Life — Motion to Take Note (27 November 2014)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...year, my right honourable friend the Prime Minister used his Easter address to speak about the importance of Christianity and Britain’s status as a Christian country. Speaking from personal experience of our country, my foundation in education was at a Church of England school. That did not make me less of a Muslim or more of a Christian, but it taught me a profound respect for...

Opposition Day: Government Policies (Wales) (26 November 2014)

Albert Owen: ...has gone. They are taking this step into self-employment, and they are finding it very difficult to get mortgages and to get credit. They are finding it really tough out there. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has produced a report on the increase in the young poor in our country. That is a serious issue that we need to tackle. I welcome the growth fund for young people in Wales, getting...

Gleision Mine (26 November 2014)

Peter Hain: ...unable to provide the stellar service to Britain’s mines that, following coal privatisation, it was set up to in 1996. Secondly, I warned that were the current funding arrangements to continue, the cost to British mining of the MRS would become prohibitive, unless it was subsidised by Government. Thirdly, I stated that both those factors would combine to reduce and diminish the vital...

Central African Republic (19 November 2014)

Stephen Twigg: ...in the CAR listed sexual violence as their No. 1 fear. More work also needs to be done to promote religious tolerance and understanding. Bringing various communities together is vital if we are to see a peace that lasts. I take heart from just one example that I should like to share with the House: that set by Father Bernard Kinvi, a Catholic priest whom Human Rights Watch has recognised....

The researchers intend to develop this research further. ...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Committee (18 November 2014)

Lord Faulks: ...liability. It is our view that the Compensation Act has not done enough to address people’s worries about liability, as recent polls carried out by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, St John Ambulance and the British Heart Foundation have demonstrated. We are hopeful that the Bill will do more than the Compensation Act did to increase public confidence in the law and...

Health and Social Care (Safety and Quality) Bill (7 November 2014)

George Freeman: ...the way that is proposed in the Bill, and to develop the culture of transparency and accountability for which it provides. My hon. Friend spoke about the concept of zero avoidable harm, which sits at the heart of the Bill, and spoke particularly powerfully about the culture of health and safety. In the aviation and nuclear industries, as we heard from the hon. Member for Copeland (Mr...
