Ed Vaizey: ...thank other hon. Members for their contributions. It is quite right that we should be debating the regulation of advertising, because these are clearly issues that attract strong interest in the House.

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Jeff Smith: .... We have not had our fair share. We have been hit, as have so many deprived northern boroughs, very unfairly. Not only that, but my constituents have suffered from the bedroom tax, from unfair sanctions and from cuts to the benefits that help them to get by in life. For many people in south Manchester, it will be hard to accept the contention that the Queen’s Speech has...

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

Brandon Lewis: It is my great pleasure to deliver the closing remarks in today’s debate. It is also nice to see the shadow Housing Minister in the Chamber, taking an interest. Given his absence throughout much of our deliberations on the Housing and Planning Act 2016 in the previous Session, I wondered where he had got to. Happily, there has been no back seat for the Government’s agenda on local...

Term-Time Holidays (19 May 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: ...must acknowledge the limbo that schools now find themselves in. Headteachers know precisely what the regulations say, but they also know what the High Court ruling was. Will he clarify for the benefit of the headteachers who might be listening what he thinks should take precedent—the High Court judgment or the regulations as they stand? If it is the High Court judgment, how quickly...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day) (18 May 2016)

Baroness Goldie: ...of money on the care of the nation by simply prescribing a lunchtime gin and Dubonnet for all hospital in-patients and presenting each of them with a corgi on discharge. Just imagine the enduring benefits of such an innovation. All these new corgi owners would have to get up and out for the morning dog walk, develop routine and expand physical activity, and then meet all their new...

European Union Migration: National Insurance - Statement (12 May 2016)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: My noble friend got through his whole Statement without telling us what the difference is between the numbers which are based on national insurance registrations, which give people entitlement to benefits and other things, and those based on the passenger survey. What has the difference been in the numbers during the past five years? Can my noble friend explain this to me, because I do not...

BBC - Statement (12 May 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, with the leave of the House, I shall repeat a Statement given in another place by my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on the government White Paper, A BBC for the Future: A Broadcaster of Distinction. “The Government are today laying before Parliament and depositing in the Libraries of both Houses a White Paper on the BBC charter...

BBC (12 May 2016)

Maria Eagle: ...funds to be given to other broadcasters. We are glad, in that respect, that his contestable pot proposals, widely briefed in advance of the publication of the White Paper, are now somewhat shrunken and are to be consulted on.

Health: Alcohol - Question (12 May 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...by alcohol, and minimum unit pricing will be an aspect that is addressed. To express a personal view, if we are going to address alcohol consumption by increasing the price, is it best that the benefit of that should go to the drinks companies through charging higher prices, or is it better that it should go to the Government through taxation? That is a question that the House might want...

EU Migrants: National Insurance Numbers (12 May 2016)

James Brokenshire: ...the previous Labour Government. We remain focused on achieving that, which is why we have taken steps to reform the visa system and to confront illegal migration.
