Mark Reckless: ...European Community, and it is therefore the EU Commission that will negotiate with the United States on that matter. When I first heard about TTIP, it sounded as though it would be all about free trade and I thought that it would be broadly a good thing. The more I looked into it, however, the more it seemed to be not about free trade but about the creation of a single set of transnational...
- Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Manufacturing (20 November 2014)
Vincent Cable: ...—indeed, we already are. The hon. Gentleman will be aware of the more general issue of energy-intensive industries, and we have sought to achieve relief through compensation under the European Union emissions trading system and the carbon price floor. We have recently consulted on how to extend that relief in respect of renewable obligations and the feed-in tariff. That consultation...

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...interest in this issue. In fact, I should almost declare an interest as a mother of three cricketers. I have met the England and Wales Cricket Board, the organisers of Wimbledon and the Rugby Football Union. I have also met Which? and I am aware of the interest of UK Music, which I meet on other things. I have actively engaged with Mike Weatherley MP and his All-Party Parliamentary Group...
- Opposition Day: [Unallotted Half-Day] — EU Justice and Home Affairs Measures (19 November 2014)
Damian Green: ...alternatives to the warrant are much slower and less effective. Some treaties do not work satisfactorily, such as that we signed with the US, a democracy with a perfectly good judicial system, so it is clearly not true that the European Union and the European arrest warrant cause unique problems. Crime fighting is an aspect of life in which instinctive, habitual, institutional co-operation...
- Public Libraries (England) — [Hugh Bayley in the Chair] (19 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate
Helen Goodman: ...what I was going to say. My hon. Friend is right. There seems to be quite a lot of confusion regarding numbers. The Minister says that he produces an annual report. We have figures from the trade unions and from the Carnegie UK Trust. I do not want to debate statistics, but it is clear that library provision is down, and that is not helpful to many communities.

- Armed Forces (Investment) (18 November 2014)
Oliver Colvile: ...He confirmed that under his leadership Scottish Labour would oppose Trident on the Clyde. He confirmed that that had been Scottish Labour’s policy for some little while. That is in line with the position of the Scottish trades unions. I very much hope that the Minister will confirm that a future Conservative-led Government will remain committed to four continuous at-sea deterrent...
- EU Reform — [John Robertson in the Chair] (18 November 2014) See 5 other results from this debate
David Lidington: ...continue on defence. Any treaty change that provided for EU armed forces would now need not only the agreement of the UK’s Government, under the requirement for unanimity, but, under the European Union Act 2011, an Act of Parliament and a referendum. Those things would be needed before such a change to treaties could take place. The UK and Germany have different experiences of...
- Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Committee (18 November 2014)
Lord Beecham: That is about right. I am sure that the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, and I, when representing members of that trade union in their claims, would have sought rehabilitation but we would also have sought proper compensation for the injuries that they suffered. The two things are not necessarily in conflict but I would not like to see rehabilitation to the exclusion of proper compensation in the...

Adrian Bailey: ...a very long process of campaigning against an injustice at large in our country. Those campaigns have been built up around campaigning bodies and have been recognised by MPs and bodies as diverse as the Federation of Small Businesses and trade unions as well as the, as it were, beer-supporting bodies. It has been a grass-roots public campaign and the fact that it is being debated in...

- Criminal Justice and Data Protection (Protocol No. 36) Regulations 2014 — Motion to Approve (17 November 2014)
Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ...Court of Justice, which may give more weight to speedy extradition as a component of European integration and a vigorous enforcement of individual rights. The basic flaw in the European arrest warrant, which has been stated many times, is the concept of giving parity of esteem within the European Union to different legal systems. Frankly, without being rude about other countries, I believe...
