Backbench Business - World Autism Awareness Weekbackbench Business (28 Apr 2016)

Cat Smith: ...on autistic people.

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Investigatory Powers Commissioner and other Judicial Commissioners (28 Apr 2016)

John Hayes: ...seriously. Along with the safeguards added earlier in the Bill, oversight plays an important part in making sure that we have the checks and balances that we all seek. In that respect, there is space for an informed debate about the balance that we are seeking to achieve, as the hon. and learned Gentleman suggests. The roles of the Executive and of the judiciary, which we have already...

Backbench Business — Court Closures (24 Mar 2016)

Helen Hayes: ...the move to Camberwell will actually work in practice. There is time, within the current lease, to make a proper plan for Lambeth: to work out the role new technology can play in making our justice system more accessible; to work out the physical space necessary to accommodate an efficient court; and to plan properly for the transition. There is no evidence in the closure programme that...

Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas (24 Mar 2016)

Andrea Leadsom: Shale gas could become a valuable new industry and it is in the strong interests of the UK to explore its potential. However, we are determined to protect our most valuable spaces, and therefore it is our intention to ban surface-level drilling in the most precious areas, including national parks and sites of special scientific interest. We have also regulated to make sure hydraulic...

Scottish Parliament: Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Bill (22 Mar 2016)

Alison McInnes: ...and the creation of a new criminal offence in the bill will be an important step in the right direction. Such violations of privacy are unacceptable and will now be illegal. During the committee stages, we explored concerns about the impact of the new offence on children and young people. There was a significant body of evidence to suggest that we should not exempt children from the...

Housebuilding: King’s Hill, Coventry — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (15 Mar 2016)

Jim Cunningham: ...said, but it is also important historically. In addition, it helps to define the city boundaries of Coventry. Most importantly, it is a welcome patch of countryside on the edge of a city that over the years has lost a lot of its green space. My next concern is about the proximity of the proposed development to Coventry itself. It is a large development of 4,000 homes. I am not opposed to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Children in the Justice System: Scoping Study (14 Mar 2016)

David Ford: ...every interaction with a child that brings them into the youth justice system should be challenged to ensure that there is clear justification for them being there and that all other options have been explored and exhausted. That should begin with a presumption against arrest and should follow through the rest of the system with the introduction of advocates and gatekeepers whose task it...

The progress report also sets out the British-Irish Visa Scheme is now operating allowing...

Home Office — Police Funding Formula (1 Mar 2016)

Gavin Shuker: Absolutely. There is far greater space for collaboration. Equally, however, there are challenges for a force such as Bedfordshire, and I have not painted a particularly rosy picture of our finances and the challenges we face. There needs to be Government influence over these measures—these things cannot just be left at local level. Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire have had two good...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Litter and Fly-tipping: England (25 Feb 2016)

Liz McInnes: ...do not intend simply to repeat what has already been said. Litter and fly-tipping have been, and remain, a huge problem in this country. They are a blight on England—on our roadsides, public areas and public spaces. Unfortunately, cuts to local government funding are forcing many councils to make savings by closing municipal tips, which could increase fly-tipping. The closure of the...

Scottish Parliament: "SNAP: Scotland’s National Action Plan for Human Rights — Year Two Report" (23 Feb 2016)

Christine Grahame: ...the commitments that have been made by the Scottish Government, Police Scotland and others.

Another important area is the commission’s work with the...

Scottish Parliament: Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (23 Feb 2016)

Mark McDonald: ...his summing-up speech, and perhaps—who knows?—to give him some content for it. There are a few points that need to be highlighted. The committee took a great deal of evidence in a very short space of time, and some of the evidence that we received was very interesting. Jackie Baillie asked whether the bill was just one that was designed to generate more revenue. That belies the...

Emergency Tug Vessels (West Coast of Scotland) (22 Feb 2016)

Robert Goodwill: ...be caused to the environment or, indeed, the loss of life that could occur if that risk is not correctly assessed and the response correctly put in place. The meeting on 10 February started to explore whether there might be alternative ways to provide a tug capability. Another meeting with stakeholders is scheduled for Edinburgh on 9 March. We may find that a longer-term solution rests...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: Consideration Stage (22 Feb 2016)

Simon Hamilton: ...been raised, I understand that discussions have started between clinicians. It is something that I raised proactively at the recent North/South Ministerial Council meeting, and I am keen for officials to take forward and explore the opportunities that there might well be. We do kidney transplantation here but we do not do other transplantation in Northern Ireland. Many people, including...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Inquiry into Inclusion in the Arts of Working-class Communities Report (15 Feb 2016)

Anna Lo: ...outcomes. It also needs to be rural proofed and adequately funded. I particularly welcome the recommendation that the strategy should seek to bring publicly owned arts to public buildings and spaces like libraries and schools, so that all communities can enjoy and be inspired by local art. On the recent Environment Committee visit to the warehouse of the Ulster Museum, we saw thousands...

Energy and Climate Change: Shale Gas (11 Feb 2016)

We have also regulated to set the minimum depth of hydraulic fracturing under sensitive areas.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Unmanned Air Vehicles (11 Feb 2016)

Philip Dunne: ...a high-altitude persistent surveillance capability, as announced in the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review. The 10.6 million contract, due to be signed imminently with Airbus Defence and Space, is for an operational concept demonstration rather than individual platforms, so unit costs are not held. Furthermore, as the Zephyr demonstrators will not be in-service, they will not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Justice (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (10 Feb 2016)

Steven Agnew: ...of occasions now, and I have said that to her. I commend her for what she has done. I do not think we would even be having this debate, were it not for her coming forward. Sarah has made it a safer space for us all to have this conversation because people have empathy with her and, therefore, for the many other women who find themselves in similar circumstances. Sarah has publicly...
