Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Water Rates (21 April 2015)

Leslie Cree: ...it deserved. It is in that context that Danny Kennedy inherited it. Since taking up the role of Minister for Regional Development, his drive has been to see certainty and stability and to create space to explore long-term options and governance models. Sadly, today's motion seems to mirror the attitude of our friends in the DUP, and the Finance Minister, in failing to take central...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (24 March 2015)

Christopher Hazzard: ...advice right. We have also had the Education and Training Inspectorate review of the World Around Us, which might have been touched on earlier. One of the changes to the revised curriculum gave the space to create the inquiry and everything else, but there was the thought that perhaps primary-school teachers did not have the capacity or the confidence to delve into the scientific...

[Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] — backbench business — Thames Valley Technology Sector (17 March 2015)

Adam Afriyie: ...is important. The Government’s work to attract qualified teachers and retrain existing ones is also welcome. The Government have identified eight great technologies to focus on, which include big data and the space industry. We often think of space as being like “Star Trek” and involving manned space flight, but there is more to it than that. I know from my time as shadow...

[Annette Brooke in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Police and Children (12 March 2015)

Tim Loughton: ...initiative and develop their character and self-confidence. There has been a culture of what I call “No ball games here”, where society is becoming increasingly intolerant of children and young people in public spaces, with a willingness to label their behaviour as social or anti-social, when in fact it is normal, growing-up behaviour for children, teenagers and so on, as we...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Devolution in England (2 March 2015)

John Redwood: ...the river and on to more useful places as part of our economic growth and development. We are making a huge contribution in our area, with a lot of extra housing and jobs, and we need more road space, but Oxfordshire will not allow us to put a bridge over the river and take the road on to other parts of our burgeoning area and up towards Oxford. That may be a case where a devolved power...

Modern Slavery Bill — Report (2nd Day) (25 February 2015)

The Bishop of Derby: ...subjects. The point of this amendment is to highlight the fact that both the Government and many of us involved in this issue are learning a great deal as we go along. Therefore, there is a proper space for consultation, review and further learning to be done. The point of this amendment is to seek authorisation for further consultation around two particular things. One is resources for...

Disabled People: Hotel Facilities — Question for Short Debate (23 February 2015)

Baroness Jolly: ...account in deciding what is reasonable on a case-by-case basis. Accessible tourism is not always about spending vast amounts of money to comply with legislation. It can be as simple as providing a hearing loop, ensuring that there is adequate space in a dining room to manoeuvre a wheelchair or providing a bowl of water for an assistance dog. It is also things such as ensuring that carers...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — National Infrastructure Projects (Local Development) (12 February 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Hollobone, and to have sufficient time to explore this interesting issue. I am delighted to be joined not only by the two Front Benchers, obviously, but by my right hon. Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Frank Dobson), who I suspect may talk primarily about the subject to which I am going to devote most of...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 February 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...lawyers. Can the Minister clarify whether that would be encompassed or is intended to be encompassed in this amendment? There are two lessons to be learned. One is how we regard as precious the opportunity for debate and the space for students to explore and debate views within universities and other institutions. The other is that we should try to avoid fast-tracking legislation such as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Off-street Parking (Functions of District Councils) Bill: Final Stage (3 February 2015)

Trevor Clarke: ...Committee is strongly supportive of local economic regeneration.

House of Commons Governance (22 January 2015)

Angela Eagle: I could not agree more strongly. They still had the ticker-tape in place when I came here. There has been rapid change in the short space of time since then.

Business of the House: Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (15 January 2015)

Ian Murray: ...is absolutely right; we often talk about the zombie Parliament. We seem to have done very little in this House for the past year to 18 months, and we could have used some of that Government time to explore these issues. Perhaps if we had done so, we would not have had some of the misinformation that is perceived to be around, and we would have been able to address some of the concerns of...

Historic Properties (Disabled Access) (8 January 2015)

Ed Vaizey: ...36 million to 820 projects specifically aimed at benefiting disabled people, 18.5 million to more than 370 projects representing the interests of disabled people, and almost 9 million to 175 projects focused on disabled people exploring the history and heritage of disability.

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 32 - Provision in building regulations for off-site carbon abatement measures (8 January 2015)

Stephen Williams: ...—going through Parliament at the moment is also my baby. That is another major reform of the housing market and deals with the issue mentioned by my hon. Friend. It introduces for the first time a national space standard that will apply across the mix of housing stock, not just social homes, where it is currently a standard applied by the Homes and Communities Agency, but houses...

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...
