UK Visa Applications (Malawi) (28 October 2014)

Tom Greatrex: I assume that the hon. Gentleman is alluding to the ongoing investigation into the misappropriation of aid funds in Malawi and more widely. He makes an important point. The examples I am talking about are individuals involved in projects, partnership arrangements or exchange visits, often with schools or Churches and other organisations. They are not part of that wealthy elite. In many cases,...

Member for Ceredigion (Mr Williams) on securing this debate on such an important issue. It is true for many people that we remember the people who taught us, although I am sure that...

Young People: Alternatives to University — Motion to Take Note (23 October 2014)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend Lord Monks for instigating this most interesting debate.

There were just 65,000 apprenticeships when Labour came into office but nearly a quarter of a million in 2010. I...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — Voter Registration (22 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Chris Ruane: I could not possibly comment. I have explained the Government’s position. I now turn to the Electoral Commission’s position, and I have paid tribute to it for what it has done. In 2009, I met people from Experian, the credit reference data agency. We sat in my office in Portcullis House and I said that 3.5 million people were missing from the register. They said, “No there...

Baroness Morgan of Ely: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Ashdown, for initiating this debate and for demonstrating such passion for an area for which clearly he still has a strong affection to this day.

David Heath: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this morning, Mr Sheridan. There are two reasons for tabling an amendment. One is to stimulate a debate on a subject. The other is to actually change the wording of a Bill. I am quite happy to accept that the hon. Lady’s purpose in this instance is to stimulate a debate on child poverty. I am not remotely happy to accept that she is...
