Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): New Clause 1 — Independent Commission on Full Fiscal Autonomy (29 June 2015)

Ian Murray: ...to £10 billion by 2020. If we are defending Scottish jobs and livelihoods, that seems not just economically incredible, but economic illiteracy. Hon.

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): Scotland Bill — [2nd Allocated Day] (29 June 2015)

Stewart Hosie: ...touched on. They are very limited. Even if we include the VAT assignation, the Scottish Parliament would raise the equivalent of around 50% of devolved expenditure. However, excluding the VAT assignation, the figure falls to barely a third. That is important because many of the submissions to the devolution committee called for more. In its written evidence, the Scottish Trades Union...

Greece — Statement (29 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...and representations? I turn now to the impact on our economy and financial system. What discussions have the Treasury and the Bank of England had with financial institutions both here and across the European Union about the implications for our financial system, and what structures are in place to monitor closely any emerging risks? It is clear that if there are wider ramifications for the...

John Martin McDonnell: ...of the gallery cannot function as normal. Staff morale at all grades is at rock bottom, and that has been intensified by the gallery’s decision to dismiss Candy Udwin as the senior Public and Commercial Services Union representative at the gallery.

Business of the House: Network Rail (25 June 2015)

John Martin McDonnell: ...the key elements of that would be to start listening to some of the workers on the front line? May I also suggest that Dame Colette Bowe’s review should include a mechanism for ongoing consultation with the trade unions about how those programmes can be improved?

Constitution: Gracious Speech — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2015)

Lord Wills: ...proposals in their manifesto and in the gracious Speech. The Government are right to recognise the need for reform. Our constitutional arrangements urgently need to adapt to changing political realities. The union is fraying. Our relationship with the European Union is now in play. Everyone agrees that your Lordships’ House needs to change but very few agree how. At the last...

Rebecca Long-Bailey: .... We have a rich political history. I am a proud socialist, and if any city personifies the struggles of the working class and the Labour movement, it is Salford. Salford was pivotal in the creation of the trade union movement, with Salford and Manchester trades councils founding the TUC in 1868. On 1 October 1931, thousands swarmed to Salford town hall, where a violent demonstration took...

Severn Bridge: Tolls — Question (24 June 2015)

Lord Wigley: My Lords, does the Minister accept that employers and trade unions alike see these tolls as a direct tax on the Welsh economy that is militating against the economic development that is greatly needed? What is the Government’s estimate of the cumulative backlog of maintenance costs for the bridge? After the contract period is over, who will be responsible for paying for that maintenance?

They recognise the damage that further cuts will cause to people who depend on core services and welfare and that the ability of the...

[Albert Owen in the Chair] — Science and Research (24 June 2015)

Paul Blomfield: ...or make it harder for our universities to transform our economy. Secondly, we must certainly not threaten the important stream of research funding that comes through our membership of the European Union, because as I am sure the Minister knows—I am sure he will endorse it—the UK does disproportionately well from European Union research funding. In 2013, for example, the last...

European Union (Finance) Bill: Clause 1 — EU finance decision: approval, and addition to list of Treaties (23 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Peter Grant: ...up to our own face. A debate such as this surely cannot be what this place was designed for.

One big problem with the way the European Union manages—or does not...
