Mental Health Services: Haringey (28 Apr 2016)

Alistair Burt: ...I know is important to him and his constituents. I thank him for his courtesy in letting us see a copy of his speech; that was much appreciated. I also thank the hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) for raising the issues that she did. I have to say that I have a soft spot for Haringey. Shortly before I first came to Parliament, 33 years ago, I was in the Hornsey and...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Phil Boswell: ..., I believe—and at the gas-fired power station in Peterhead in Scotland, which I was fortunate enough to work on for Shell. The Chancellor’s cancellation of the CCS funding late last year was the latest in a long line of greener and renewable energy cuts that set us yet further back on our journey to cleaner energy. In November 2014, the BBC reported on how changes in...

Policing and Crime Bill: Application of Firearms Act 1968 to the police: special constables and volunteers (26 Apr 2016)

Jack Dromey: ...pre-charge bail to prevent terrorists, such as Dhar, from ever fleeing the country before charge. We welcome the protection of police whistleblowers. We welcome moves to improve the way that the police deal with people suffering a mental health crisis, such as no longer considering a police cell to be a place of safety. We welcome moves to ensure that 17-year-olds detained in police...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (5th Day) (Continued) (25 Apr 2016)

Lord Lisvane: ...policy, consulting upon it, finalising it and then putting it into draft legislation, with all the key areas of policy being in the Bill. In what seems now the dim and distant past, there used to be such things as Green Papers. Not only did they allow consultation on proposals; they also allowed legislative intent to be stress-tested before proposals came formally before Parliament. I...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ..., et cetera that she will drive me to Hansard to read them again. Although it is clear that the BBC has further to go on diversity, there are programmes such as “The A Word”—I do not know whether noble Lords have watched that recently—which deals with autism in such an imaginative way, and “Employable Me”, which is another great example of the BBC...

90TH Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen (21 Apr 2016)

William Wragg: ..., I observe that when I entered Parliament last year I was a similar age to Her Majesty when she ascended to the throne. It was a great honour to swear allegiance to her on taking my seat on these Green Benches and in so doing I hope that I reflected the highest regard in which Her Majesty is held across the generations of our country, both old and young. As we remember the Queen’s...

Energy Bill [Lords]: Onshore wind power: circumstances in which certificates may be issued after 31 March 2016 (20 Apr 2016)

James Heappey: ... across the country. Not one of its elected Members has come to this Chamber today to justify the actions of their unelected colleagues in the other place. The illiberal undemocrats have a great deal to answer for. I want to congratulate the Secretary of State and the Minister of State on their forbearance in seeing the Bill through Parliament. I understand that the other day, the...

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

Susan Elan Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I have just a few words, and they are from my constituent, Mr Philip James of Tallarn Green, which is near the English border. Philip James is a 3D artist, and this is what he movingly wrote: “I was diagnosed with brain cancer a few days after my 30th birthday where I proposed to my fiancée. Since then I have set a...

High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill - Second Reading (14 Apr 2016)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...Bill. More than 20% of the total route length is now in a tunnel, up from an initial from 8.9%, including nearly all the route through London and through the Chilterns to South Heath, as well as several cut-and-cover “green tunnels” further north, together with caps and restrictions on traffic in urban areas affected by construction. As a former Housing Minister, I commend the...

Sustainable Development Goals (13 Apr 2016)

Patrick Grady: ...a very useful Back-Bench business debate on 10 September led by the hon. and learned Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Stephen Phillips). Just yesterday, the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green (Mike Freer) led a debate on tackling HIV and AIDS in women and girls, in which a number of the issues that we have heard about today were touched on. I suspect that we will continue...

Mental Health Taskforce Report — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (13 Apr 2016)

Alistair Burt: ...colleagues can see it. There are many things on which there is no disagreement. To give some one-liners, My hon. Friend the Member for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich (Dr Poulter) said that we now deal with mental and physical illness in an holistic way; that is absolutely right and ensures that money goes to the right place. I will cover that later, but no one disagrees. On psychiatric...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (13 Apr 2016)

Catherine McKinnell: ...company assets and wealth, and enable a very clear view of who the beneficiaries are of investments and funds, whether they are held here in the UK or in offshore trusts and accounts. It is essential to deal properly not only with aggressive tax avoidance that Parliament never intended to be pursued, but with tax evasion and other criminal activity, such as fraud and corruption. Too often,...

Transport for London Bill [Lords]: Specified activities (12 Apr 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: ...about how quickly its revenue stream was going to be withdrawn—I suspect that it must at least have thought that that would be the case—or whether it was contemplating some of its proposed large-scale property deals. To some extent, we owe a debt of gratitude to Capco for its aggressive exploitation of the West Kensington and Earl’s Court development, which has become a...

Energy Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (12 Apr 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...amendments to their own amendments—there will be a further opportunity for the kind of engagement that is part and parcel of the way this House operates. Certainly, when I had the privilege of sitting on the Front Bench and dealing with amendments, I tried to find some means of compromise when there were Lords defeats. Perhaps I may go through the amendments, although I do not want...

Backbench Business: Worcester University Arena: Disabled People and Sport (12 Apr 2016)

Robin Walker: ...them with me last year and was able to meet some of the phenomenal and inspiring athletes who use them. He will recall meeting Sophie Carigill, captain of the GB women’s wheelchair basketball team, David Green, the Vice Chancellor, and Mick Donovan, head of sport at the university, who launched his vision for an international centre for inclusive sport there. The Minister needs no...
