Pension Schemes Bill — Second Reading (16 December 2014)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...providers to their existing pension customers were enhanced, compared with 50% of annuities sold in the open market. So how can we have confidence that the guidance guarantee will facilitate better outcomes, especially over time when the vacated space of compulsory annuities will engender a wide range of products? There are a number of concerns. The first is whether people will seek to...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Education of Children with Cerebral Palsy (9 December 2014)

Mark Hoban: ...is a condition of very early childhood, the implications for the developing child cannot be ignored. During the formative years, the central nervous system develops rapidly, enabling the child to learn, explore and connect with their social environment. It is during those crucial early years that the ability to learn develops. Children with cerebral palsy are hindered to varying degrees...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Infrastructure Bill [Lords] (8 December 2014)

Charles Hendry: ..., where public confidence will be essential. The shale revolution in America has been possible because there are huge open spaces—for someone with 2,000 acres of North Dakota, it makes sense to explore the reserves of shale—but in a much more tightly compact country such as the United Kingdom, an entirely different debate is needed to reassure the public.

Autumn Statement — Statement (3 December 2014)

Lord Deighton: ...-front costs of postgraduate degrees deter bright students from poorer backgrounds. Today, across all disciplines, we will make government-backed student loans of up to 10,000 available, for the first time ever, to all young people undertaking postgraduate master’s degrees. The next step is the allocation of 6 billion on the biggest-ever sustained programme of investment...

Youth Service Provision — [Mr Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 December 2014)

Julie Hilling: ...was not working. The facts were being kept out by the mess in their lives—they did not know what was going on in their lives and they did not have good relationships with adults. Providing that space did more than allow those young people to be themselves; it enabled them to learn, participate, take part, get ready for work and take up their role in the world. It fulfilled an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 December 2014)

George Osborne: ...-backed student loans of up to 10,000 available, for the first time ever, to all young people undertaking postgraduate masters degrees. The next step is the allocation of 6 billion on the biggest-ever sustained programme of investment in the research facilities of our scientific community. This includes money for major new scientific challenges, including the search for...

Tackling Corruption (2 December 2014)

Karen Bradley: ...has said, and I have already asked for a meeting with him to be arranged. I know that he has great expertise and experience in this regard, and I think it would be helpful to sit down with him and explore his comments and their practical implications. The figures he quoted in his speech show just how important it is that the Government tackle this issue, and I was interested to hear his...

National Lottery: 20th Anniversary — Question for Short Debate (27 November 2014)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...together and enjoy healthy food as a community in County Durham. Active East is a project in the east of Glasgow encouraging young people to engage in more sports and activities. Hooray for Homework, a project in Mansfield, gives children a safe space where they can go after school to do their homework. I hope that my noble friend Lord Addington will be pleased to hear about Carry a...

Houses of Parliament: World Heritage Site — Question for Short Debate (26 November 2014)

Baroness Andrews: ..., in discussing both the setting of this House, the threats to that and the future of the House itself. I am very reluctant to drag the House back to the 21st century. I would be very happy to explore with the noble Lord, Lord Dobbs, the implications of having a good fire and seeing what we can achieve with that. However, we are at a very serious point for all the reasons that the noble...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Fracking (25 November 2014)

Norman Baker: That is certainly true. The geology is different, and land use management is different in this country. We do not have the vast open spaces that exist in the US—I believe that Lord Howell referred to the “desolate” north-east, which I do not think is an appropriate description of our country—so of course the situation is entirely different. As we found with genetically...

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Baroness King of Bow: ...” is an interesting word in relation to how too many of us in politics instinctively view the internet. It comes from the Greek “agora” meaning market place;, which is similar to what a first-century Roman might call a forum or an open space, or what a 21st century teenager might call cyberspace. According to Wikipedia, agoraphobia is, “an anxiety disorder where the...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Committee (18 November 2014)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ...our report. They include people worried that they could not put a plaster on a child’s cut; that goggles could not be worn in a swimming lesson; that they could not take photographs of their children at a school play, and that they could not offer meeting space in an office to a local community group. I hope that in parallel with implementing this Bill the Government will take active...

G20 Summit — Statement (17 November 2014)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...made it clear that continued destabilisation of Ukraine can mean only more sanctions and more pressure. He has said that he does not want a frozen conflict and, as he put it to me, sees Ukraine as a single political space but he must be judged by his deeds not his words. On Ebola, I wrote to Australian Prime Minister Abbott ahead of the summit to secure a specific G20 leaders’...

Modern Slavery Bill — Second Reading (17 November 2014)

The Bishop of Derby: ...Select Committee and I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Bates, on his very positive introduction. I also express my appreciation to the Government for listening and being willing to negotiate and explore options as this legislation unfolds. I remind your Lordships that this is not just a huge and wicked crime. It is, as the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, says, increasing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: G20 (17 November 2014)

David Cameron: ...continued destabilisation of Ukraine can only mean more sanctions and more pressure. He has said that he does not want a frozen conflict and, as he put it to me, he sees Ukraine as a single political space, but he must be judged by his deeds, not by his words. On Ebola, I wrote to Australian Prime Minister Abbott ahead of the summit to secure a specific G20 leaders’ statement with a...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 November 2014)

Baroness Hollins: ...Bill does not require even a single consultation with a psychiatrist. So how many times do I think a psychiatrist should see the person? Since suicidality fluctuates, I propose for the purpose of this probing amendment that there should be two specialist assessments, spaced ideally at least 28 days apart, with offers of treatment for both depression and pain, so that there is time for...

Football Governance Bill (7 November 2014)

Edward Vaizey: Yes, I do agree. Sometimes it makes one wonder about the motivation of one’s fellow man that, when Banksy is prepared to be public spirited enough to create community artwork in public spaces for the benefit of the local population who take it to their hearts, somebody should seek to use that windfall because it happens to be on their private property. I very much hope it will be...

Shale Gas and Oil (EAC Report) — Motion to Take Note (4 November 2014)

Baroness Blackstone: ..., the impact on climate change. I endorse what was said by my noble friend Lord Hollick. While the case for renewables is strong, they are expensive and they are a long-term solution. However, the exploration and exploitation of the extensive reserves of shale gas in the UK should be seen not as an alternative to renewables but as an additional source of energy that is much superior to...

Blackpool Airport (3 November 2014)

Robert Goodwill: ...been impressed by the efforts many airports are making to diversify into different activities, such as aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul, business aviation and other support services, and providing space for other, non-aviation businesses. I am aware of Blackpool airport’s proud history, which goes back as far as 1909 when the UK’s first official public flying meeting...
