Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, like a noble Lord, Lord Lisvane, I, too, want to deal with the quality of legislation presented to us. In recent years I have served on your Lordships’ Delegated Powers Committee, and I currently serve on the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee. During this time, I have become more and more concerned about the poor state of legislation presented to us by the Government,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Lord Williams of Baglan: ...are not mentioned—for example, Iraq, where the promised political advances have not materialised some 13 years after the US/UK invasion left the country broken and divided. The recent storming of the green zone in Baghdad by protesters led by the Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr brought to the surface a long-standing dilemma—namely, that the system which has governed the country...

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

John Redwood: ...I want us to restore that power on behalf of the British people. I would like us to abolish the tampon tax. I would like us to say to the European Court of Justice, “We do not accept your verdict that we have to put up taxes on green products to 20% from 5%.” However, that is its judgment, and that is what this Parliament will have to do after the referendum should we decide to...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Brandon Lewis: I am sure the hon. Lady will appreciate that I cannot comment on any particular planning application, but when it comes to support for the green belt, this Government have gone further than ever before to ensure that the green belt is properly protected. Ultimately, it is a matter for the local community, but as I said, when it comes to neighbourhood planning, she might like to have a look at...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Baroness Sharp of Guildford: ...the Minister mentioned, despite the improvement, one in five children leaves primary school without really being able to cope with the secondary school curriculum. This is, I think, a very difficult issue to deal with and one that as a nation we have failed to grapple with over time. The reason why I am pleased that we are not forcing academisation is that the evidence does not indicate,...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers and Junior Ministers (19 May 2016)

John Finnie: The Scottish Green Party congratulates the First Minister and her appointees, especially those who will hold ministerial office for the first time or gain promotion. Like Kezia Dugdale, we are delighted that it is a 50:50 Cabinet. Like many others, we want to thank Alex Neil and Richard Lochhead, who are leaving office. We thank them for their work and wish them the very best in the future. I...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Robin Walker: ...and learn new things. I want to compliment three businesses that have contacted me in the past few days. Rock Power Connections and Instant Scenery told me in the past couple of days that they are taking on their first apprentices, while Green Lighting Ltd is a Worcester firm that recently won a Queen’s award for innovation and received the apprentice of the year award from the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Appointment of the First Minister and deputy First Minister (12 May 2016)

Martin McGuinness: ...Agreement, which is now over six months old. It has been a good start, but there is more work to be done, not least putting the final piece of the jigsaw in place in relation to victims and how we deal with the past. I earnestly hope, in the aftermath of putting together the Programme for Government and appointing Ministers, that a way forward can be found to meet the needs of victims...

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Stephen Timms: ...move into work—that is difficult at the moment but under universal credit should be simpler. The former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), who of course resigned from the Government after the Budget fiasco on disability benefits, is entitled to a good deal of credit for coming up with the original idea...

Bis Sheffield/Government Departments Outside London (9 May 2016)

Anna Soubry: ...Members whose questions I do not answer in my response. That may include the hon. Gentleman, in this respect: his questions were quite long, and I do not have time to answer them all at length. I will deal with the points he made, but in the time allowed to me I will not be able to answer them all in the sort of length that I would like. It is very important that we have as the focus of...

Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2016 - Motion to Approve (5 May 2016)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: I am grateful for what the Minister has said, but he did not answer the critical question of why the Government did not foresee this. They created regulations that were predicated on the Green Deal, in the knowledge that they were already questioning the future of the Green Deal. It would have made sense to anticipate that when the original regulations were drawn up in 2015. We would not be...

Business of the House (5 May 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...cultural institution, and they do not want some right-wing Minister pursuing a personal agenda and handing British broadcasting over lock, stock and barrel to his chum Murdoch. Will the Government publish the White Paper next week, stand by the financial deal they signed up to with the BBC last year and guarantee that there will be a new 11-year BBC charter in place this autumn? In recent...

Backbench Business - Education Funding in Londonbackbench Business (4 May 2016)

Nicholas Dakin: ...for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) and for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge), my hon. Friends the Members for West Ham (Lyn Brown), for Westminster North (Ms Buck), for Gateshead (Ian Mearns) and for Greenwich and Woolwich (Matthew Pennycook), my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman), the hon. and learned Member for South East Cambridgeshire (Lucy...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Projects for Young People (4 May 2016)

Justine Greening: ...great agencies such as UNICEF to fund psychosocial support. One of the biggest problems we face is making sure that we have Arabic speakers with the right kinds of skills in the right quantity to deal with the scale of the challenge.

Housing and Planning Bill: Neighbourhood right of appeal (3 May 2016)

Stuart Andrew: ...course, a good use of such sites, but we now face the prospect of having to build 70,000 homes over the next 14 years, as that is the target that the city council has set itself. There is a great deal of concern in the constituency that we are going to have to release green-belt land to match that demand. This has galvanised a lot of local action, and I pay tribute to those involved in...

Transparency and Accountability (European Union) (3 May 2016)

Edward Leigh: We are a week from Parliament being prorogued prior to the Queen’s Speech. If we entered some kind of green dreamland, with the Opposition and the Government agreeing to accept the Bill and it becoming law—of course, we all know that that is not going to happen—do you know what I think would be the result, Mr Deputy Speaker? I think the effect on the European Union would be...

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...
