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. We must continue to future-proof our institution—not only our building, but our Parliament—to ensure that the transparency of what we do and our accessibility to our constituents and those to whom we are accountable continue...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Regeneration Bill: Second Stage (20 January 2015)

Mervyn Storey: ...the market conditions are appropriate, we should encourage the development of community finance infrastructure. My Department is working and will work with financial providers and partner Departments to explore the feasibility of new instruments. I have not got all the minutiae of how these would work, but I am happy to give Members more information as we develop them. For example, we...

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)

Edward 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. As an example of what can be done, Historic Royal Palaces applied to HLF for a 1.6 million...

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...

[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...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Marshall Report: Independent Child Sexual Exploitation Inquiry (18 November 2014)

Jim Wells: ...structure, safety and quality of care that these facilities provide without depriving people of their liberty and of the opportunity to develop into individuals who can cope with freedom. Children need a safe space, and it may be possible, with their help, to identify a model that feels safe without restricting their liberty." That is already being considered by the Health and Social Care...

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...
