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...

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.

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...

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (3 November 2014)

Baroness Kramer: ...Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich and Oxford. Since that 10 is an important marker number, I draw attention to it. Our recent investment in bike and rail has been the major enabler in doubling cycle parking spaces at railway stations since 2009. I announced a further 15 million of bike and rail funding in July 2014, to triple the number of cycle parking spaces at railway...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 11 - Neither the person nor his or her partner may be claiming universal credit. (21 October 2014)

Lucy Powell: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I would like to discuss these amendments together as, obviously, they have been grouped. The amendments allow us to explore the interaction of universal credit and tax credits with the tax-free child care scheme that is proposed. Given the complexity of the issue and the number of representations that we heard last week and over the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business : Off-street Parking (Functions of District Councils) Bill:  Second Stage (21 October 2014)

Trevor Clarke: ...opportunity to speak on off-street car parking. The Committee is generally supportive of the Bill. However, the caveat is that there are some Committee concerns about protecting the car parking spaces in villages when this is transferred to local government. We look forward to receiving the views of the Independent Retail Trade Association on the matter. The Committee...

Cycling (16 October 2014)

Robert Goodwill: ...It is a clear commitment from Government leaders to do more for cyclists as well as pedestrians, and sets out clear ambitions for the next 10 years. Our ambition is to work with local government and businesses to explore how we can achieve a minimum funding package equivalent to 10 per person each year by 2020-21, and sooner if possible, and that is a focus of our engagement on the...

Baroness Hodgson of Abinger: ...partner. Some 38% of its GDP comes from remittances, with 70% of its migrants working in Russia. There is great pressure for Kyrgyzstan to join the customs union—which is officially a trade zone, but is exploring economic harmonisation with an intense political component. Although many of Kyrgyzstan’s laws are actually quite progressive, implementation is hard to achieve, with...

Isle of Wight (Ferries) (13 October 2014)

Andrew Turner: ...Better Ferry campaign and the “Are Wightlink the Right Link” Facebook group, have 5,000 supporters between them. I would like to give a flavour of some of the comments: “I’m fed up with not being able to book with my Multi-Link ticket, only to find that there are dozens of spaces if I pay the Non-Residents fare. Get a grip, Wightlink.” Another islander says:...

NHS: Cottage Hospitals — Question for Short Debate (13 October 2014)

Earl Howe: ...are many excellent reasons why people are often extremely protective of their local community hospital. It may deliver a range of essential services, provide employment for local people and afford space for community groups. It is understandable that community hospitals are fiercely defended and inspire such loyalty. It is right that people think about their future place. The changes that...
