International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) Bill (12 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Nia Griffith: ...they will know that the funding will not suddenly be cut from year to year, so that will help significantly in many instances.

Bill Presented — Recall of MPs Bill: Backbench Business — Energy-intensive Industries (11 September 2014)

Ian Swales: ...that it was a huge issue that faced many industries, some of which have been mentioned. I do not think that paper has been mentioned. That is yet another industry that sent a representative from its trade body. As a result, there has been a great deal of representation to the Government. I am pleased to see at least some bending in response. UK businesses that are involved in the...

Natascha Engel: ...in place, which will last up to the general election, and it is important that they are not changed until the Committee has reported and the House has voted. Originally, I came to this issue from a trade union perspective. I was concerned by the fact that the job that was advertised was for a procedural adviser and a chief executive, but that the chosen candidate was qualified only for...

Peter Hain: ...such an agreement, Ukraine would be militarily neutral, which would mean no membership of NATO, and certainly no Russian military pact. Ukraine’s status would be comparable to that of Finland, but, obviously, without membership of the European Union. It would be guaranteed by Moscow and Washington. There would be no further NATO encirclement or enlargement around Russia’s...

William Hague: ...in the House with Scottish parliamentarians and their predecessors. Since the 18th century, they have sat together to implement a great range of progressive causes, from the abolition of the slave trade to our pursuit of human rights and sound development across the world today. We have often led the way at times of world crisis and been an inspiration to democratic peoples elsewhere. The...

[Annette Brooke in the Chair] — Western Balkans (10 September 2014)

Jim Shannon: ...—to which the right hon. Gentleman referred. The aim of the Berlin conference was to send a message of support for the Balkan countries’ European ambitions and to bolster the promises that the European Union made to those countries in more self-confident days. Those promises now seem uncertain, particularly as tensions and security concerns within the region remain. There is a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: DARD HQ:  Ballykelly (9 September 2014)

Michelle O'Neill: I am hopeful that staff are content, by and large. We made sure that we had an ad hoc committee, and we have been meeting the trade union side throughout the process, because it is so important that we get this right. DARD headquarters has been where it is now for about 50 years, so, inevitably, quite a number of staff are from the greater Belfast area. Therefore, it is...

Bills Presented — Recall of Elected Representatives: Service Charges, Gratuities and Cover Charges (Hospitality, Leisure and Service Sectors) (Statutory Code) (9 September 2014)

Andrew Percy: ...ignore it. The Bill aims to do three things. First, it aims to set out clear measures on the distribution of tips and service charges, which are important in constituencies such as mine where the tourist trade is important. That is also true in the constituencies of my hon. Friends the Members for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers) and for Aberconwy (Guto Bebb), who are here today, where there...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Transforming Rehabilitation Programme (9 September 2014)

Chris Grayling: I am afraid the right hon. Gentleman is plain wrong. He needs to stop listening to the trade unions; of course the trade unions still think this is a bad idea, but in reality our reforms are bedding in well and we will deliver the changes necessary to provide support and supervision to people who get none at the moment. The Labour party has no answers about how it would deliver that. On...

Business of the House (10 September): Backbench Business — Food Fraud (8 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

David Simpson: ..., so if I was repetitive I apologise. A number of the complaints I received in my constituency from commercial companies concerned the fact that although we welcome an open border policy for free trade within the European Union, it has its downside as regards free movement, and there were not the border checks that there should have been. There is paperwork, and we can do many things with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: NATO Summit (8 September 2014)

David Cameron: ...—and we have, if you like, signed away a bit of our sovereignty in NATO, in that we are pledged to go and defend anyone who is attacked—whereas, of course, the core purpose of the European Union is not defence, but should be about securing our prosperity and ensuring that we can trade freely with our 27 partners.

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)
