Heidi Alexander: ...the gap between the richest and poorest. Some people may think that this debate interests only experts in international development and education policy makers, or those who work for international aid charities.

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (30 June 2015)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: ...intended to use them to produce psychoactive substances. Were that the case, the relevant law enforcement agency might then have no option but to charge that person with the criminal offence of assisting the commission of an offence under Clause 4.

David Mundell: ...process did not take place, the undertaking would obviously not be valid. That is of course correct, but my approach to the Bill is to proceed with it on the basis that it fully reflects the Smith commission proposals, and that it takes account of the issues and concerns that have been raised. SNP Members have tabled a number of amendments with which I do not agree, but which I think might...

Scotland Bill: Clause 19 — Disability, industrial injuries and carer’s benefits (30 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Eilidh Whiteford: ...over discretionary housing payments, other discretionary payments and the sanctions regime. Our clear view is that the proposed powers over discretionary housing payments in clause 22 fail to deliver the Smith commission recommendation for autonomy because they are subject to various restrictions. As the Scottish Government said in their response to the Scottish Parliament’s...

Affordable Housing — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2015)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...smaller properties needed for those wishing to downsize to escape the bedroom tax will not be forcibly sold, or properties in rural areas?
