Priti Patel: ...the UK and help existing firms to compete in the global race. I do not want us to underestimate that term: we are about competition, we are open for business, and the Chancellor has consistently made the case that this is about British jobs and keeping the United Kingdom a competitive place for manufacturing in EIIs. Manufacturing fell from being 19% of the total economy in 1997 to 10% in...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 3 - Meaning of exploitation (4 September 2014)

Michael Connarty: ...nefarious purposes—the last being a cannabis factory—was previously used by a company with big white vans that took people from various parts of the expanded A8 EU to steal every charity bag for the British Heart Foundation, for example, that they could find outside houses. The vans would suddenly have stuck to their sides a sign similar to, but not exactly the same as, that of...

Backbench Business: Sale of Puppies and Kittens (4 September 2014)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...puppy farms are responsible for many health problems, including infectious diseases such as parvovirus, internal and external parasites and a range of breed-related and inherited diseases such as heart disease, epilepsy and glaucoma. It is crucial that puppy farms are not only properly licensed, but properly scrutinised—the powers are there to scrutinise them—so that we can...

Julie Hilling: ...declaring that they had it—and that, in Bolton West, predicted rates of the condition are higher than the national average. I asked for the debate today to coincide with the launch of the British Lung Foundation’s obstructive sleep apnoea health economics report, because an estimated 1.5 million people have the condition in the UK, yet only 330,000 people are currently...

Scottish Parliament: Innovation Centres (Economic Impact) (20 August 2014)

Michael Russell: ...are an important growth sector, which is why we sought to improve the links between our universities and public and private sectors, to increase the economic and social benefits of innovation. We start from sound foundations. Our research pools, for example, have embedded a collaborative approach across the university sector, to provide a critical mass of research excellence, which...

The festival was created in the late 1960s by the late Blyth Major, the music director of the midland youth orchestra, and the late Lionel Bryer, the chairman of the International Youth Foundation. They conceived the idea of bringing together youth orchestras from all over the world, using music as a unifying bond to promote international understanding. The first...

Industrial Strategy: British Business Bank — Question for Short Debate (8 July 2014)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...that it provides for. As the noble Baroness pointed out, that would be rather ridiculous. Therefore, those 11 sectors but not the creative industries may well be in a beneficial place as regards the British Business Bank, export support or UKTI. That would be a terrible shame. I hope that is something the Government have picked up and are working on. The 2008-09 crash exposed long-standing...

Modern Slavery Bill (8 July 2014)

Michael Connarty: ...conference came to the same conclusion as my hon. Friend the Member for Slough did in her ten-minute rule Bill, and as I did in my private Member’s Bill, which, sadly, was talked out. The Human Trafficking Foundation and Anthony Steen have been mentioned. The previous speaker, the hon. Member for Salisbury (John Glen), entered Parliament in 2010, but he missed the best part, because...

[Sandra Osborne in the Chair] — Organ Transplants (8 July 2014)

Glyn Davies: ...in modern medical science, enabling treatment of patients with failing and damaged organs. Huge advances in transplant surgery and immunosuppression have enabled great advances to be made. Hearts, kidneys, livers, lungs, pancreases, and other organs, are successfully transplanted, but the demand continues to grow. Medical science is enabling more transplantation and we are living longer,...

Health: Polypill — Question for Short Debate (7 July 2014)

Baroness Brinton: ...35 who have an at-risk profile might consider taking it every day. Indeed, Dr David Wald at Queen Mary University of London, after his trial, says that 28% of people will benefit by avoiding or delaying heart attacks. However the QMUL studies trial was only 84 patients; perhaps I should say “people”, since it was targeting people who were not yet unwell. Those results show that...

Consumer Rights Bill: Second Reading (1 July 2014)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: ...in the past few days whether this is the first Bill that is the product of a formal ministerial job-share. I am glad Which? in its briefing fairly recognises this Bill as providing, “a firm foundation for empowering consumers”, and that it will, “benefit businesses that treat their consumers fairly”. Among my colleagues on this side of the House we see this ongoing...

Iraq — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2014)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, as chairman of the AMAR International Charitable Foundation, the executive chairman of the Iraq Britain Business Council and the Prime Minister’s trade envoy to Iraq, I have an enormous vested interest in the country, as noted in the register of Members’ interests, and in the most recent terrible incidents in the region. I visit the country very regularly, and I have a...

Gender Equality in Overseas Parliaments (25 June 2014)

Lynne Featherstone: ...a balanced gender mix is good, whether it is in the boardroom or on the Floor of Parliament. Wherever it is, groupthink is dangerous when making decisions. I might say the same if it was all women. At the heart of what DFID does is unlocking the potential of girls and women by empowering them to have a voice in decision making, so we support women parliamentarians in many countries. Our...

Written Answers — Health: Heart Diseases (19 June 2014)

Jane Ellison: Information on survival rates for patients who suffer an out of hospital heart attack or an out of hospital cardiac arrest are not collected centrally. The British Heart Foundation suggests that between 2-12% of people treated by the emergency services after suffering an out of hospital cardiac arrest survive to be discharged from hospital. The Department has made no assessment of the effect...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: New Clause 52 — Procedure for certain planning challenges (17 June 2014)

Andy Slaughter: ...than the new clauses on planning, partly because the latter are relatively uncontroversial. Yesterday, the Prime Minister held a party for the 799th birthday of Magna Carta. He said that it was the foundation of all “our laws and liberties”, and made us citizens not subjects, with “rights, protections and security”. He is right about that. Later this afternoon, we...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Organ Donation Register (17 June 2014)

Andrew Griffiths: .... It gets people talking; it stimulates discussion, which is important. My hon. Friend will know that the principle of the opt-out system is supported by a number of organisations, including the British Medical Association, the British Heart Foundation and Kidney Research UK. As I said, I hope that the Government will look closely at the evidence—at the results of changing the law in...

Baroness Benjamin: ...and animation productions. The introduction of tax credits for the theatre was also welcome news. However, there are still major issues that need to be addressed. Two of them are very close to my heart. The first is the representation of our diverse society in the media, especially in film and television, both on screen and, most importantly, behind the camera and in the boardrooms where,...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (11 June 2014)

Baroness Warsi: ...act, and the culture of impunity that exists for such crimes is a major barrier to international peace and security. It is right, therefore, that we have put tackling these abhorrent crimes at the heart of not only our social and developmental policies but our foreign policy. I pay tribute to my right honourable friend for his dedication in bringing this issue to the fore and his success...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (10 June 2014)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...points made by the noble Lord, Lord Tugendhat, about the changing foreign policy context and his concern about the lack of an ability to stop takeovers which might be damaging to viable and successful British-based companies. I would be interested to hear the Minister’s comment on those points. It is difficult to believe that the irrepressible noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond,...

Bill Presented — Modern Slavery Bill: Home Affairs (10 June 2014)

Alison Seabeck: ...students who overstay and the bogus colleges, we need to regard students generally as a positive and not as a negative in our cities. In Plymouth, we have two universities with a significant number of overseas students, and it is quite disheartening that those students are sometimes seen as more of a problem for our city than a benefit to it. Of course, we should also remember that British...
