Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (23 Mar 2021)

Ed Miliband: It is not about the Business Secretary’s meetings or about his heart; it is about his action and his willingness to say that he will do plan B if it is necessary to save those jobs, as we expect him to do. The problem is that the reason people are suspicious of the Secretary of State is that there used to be a cross-party consensus in this country about industrial strategy, but in his two...

Income Tax (Charge) (9 Mar 2021)

Ed Miliband: I want to start by quoting a speech given in this Chamber 77 years ago, in June 1944, by Ernest Bevin, who was then the Minister of Labour. He said: “With my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, I had an opportunity of visiting one of our ports and seeing the men, of the 50th Division among others, going aboard ship…The one question they put to me when I went through their ranks was,...

Income Tax (Charge) (9 Mar 2021)

Ed Miliband: He nods. As if that is somehow a justification for cutting the pay of nurses. What is the world in which their plight justifies cutting the pay of our nurses? I have never heard anyone, in a year of discussions, in any of those sectors say to me, “I’m finding it hard, so Government should cut nurses’ pay.” People would only say that if they believe in a race to the bottom or they...

Cop26: Topical Questions (24 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: I have never been called that before. I warmly welcome the President of COP26 to his full- time role. It is in all our interests that he should succeed, and we want to do everything that we can to help. The central judgment of COP26’s success is whether it keeps alive the Paris target of limiting global warming to 1.5°. To make that happen, the UN says that we need to more than halve...

Cop26: Topical Questions (24 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: A crucial issue for the success of the COP is international finance for developing countries, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, and they are facing poverty, the pandemic and climate change. Yet the Government have shamefully chosen this moment to cut £25 billion to £30 billion from overseas aid over the course of this Parliament. They say that they are protecting climate aid, but they have...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Paternity Leave (9 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if he will publish his Department's estimate of the take up of shared parental leave by fathers (a) on the latest figures available as (i) an absolute number and (ii) proportion of those fathers eligible and (b) for each quarter since the introduction of that policy as (i) an absolute number and (ii) a proportion of...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Paternity Leave (9 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if he will publish his Department's estimate of the number of fathers who were eligible for shared parental leave in the latest quarter; and how many new fathers are ineligible for that leave because they do not meet criteria on work history or status.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Covid-19: Support for Businesses (9 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: Businesses are facing a £50 billion bombshell in less than two months as Government support packages are due to end, and there is still no clarity about the future. The Secretary of State must realise that the Budget is too late. Businesses are making decisions now about their future and that of their workers. The CBI director general said a week ago: “Businesses are currently completely...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Covid-19: Support for Businesses (9 Feb 2021)

Ed Miliband: Excuses are no substitute for a plan. Businesses need clarity and certainty, and they are not getting it from the Government. Let me turn to another critical issue facing them. We want them to succeed in our new trading relationship with the EU, but according to Make UK, 60% of manufacturers are experiencing disruption, the fashion industry says it faces “decimation”, and hauliers are...

Employment Rights: Government Plans (25 Jan 2021)

Ed Miliband: I thank all right hon. and hon. Members from all parties who have spoken in this debate. It is important that this debate has taken place. In particular, on the Opposition Benches I acknowledge my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman); my hon. Friends the Members for Wansbeck (Ian Lavery), for Lewisham, Deptford (Vicky Foxcroft), for Eltham (Clive...

National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 7 - Reports to the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (20 Jan 2021)

Ed Miliband: May I begin by adding my congratulations to the new Secretary of State? Promotion to the Cabinet with such an important role as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy must be a proud moment for him, and it is in the interests of the country that he succeeds, so I offer him my warmest congratulations. I also take the opportunity to pay tribute to his predecessor, the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (15 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: Businesses face a double whammy from the ongoing economic crisis and potential Brexit disruption. They want the Business Secretary to stand up for them. Some 61% of the country will be in tier 3 from tomorrow, and the situation for many pubs, restaurants and bars is catastrophic, as this morning’s record redundancy figures show. Will the Secretary of State now finally recognise what he has...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (15 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: I am afraid that the Secretary of State is failing to stand up for the hospitality sector. Let us talk about the 150,000 businesses that, even with a trade deal, will have to fill in customs forms for the first time from 1 January. The ports are struggling, the IT systems are not ready, the customs agents are not in place, and businesses still do not know the rules that will exist in just 16...

Energy White Paper (14 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: Can I thank the Secretary of State for his statement? This White Paper has been promised year after year, so there have been high expectations for it, and I know I should say that the Secretary of State and his Minister are deeply committed to the fight against the climate crisis, but the test of this White Paper is not just good intentions, but whether it is a plan at the scale of ambition...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: After Clause 1 - COMMON FRAMEWORKS PROCESS (10 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: I will try to be as brief as I can, Madam Deputy Speaker. I want to say to the Minister that we should note the progress made in the removal of the law-breaking clauses from part 5. What has essentially happened here is that the Joint Committee set up to deal with the outstanding issues on the Northern Ireland protocol has dealt with the issues on the Northern Ireland protocol. We are in a...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: After Clause 1 - COMMON FRAMEWORKS PROCESS (10 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: I am going to make some progress; lots of people want to speak and there is not much time. With the law-breaking powers that undermined our reputation in the world gone, we are left with the legal but, I believe, deeply flawed proposals for undermining our shared governance at home. I am glad that the other place has, by large majorities, stuck with the insistence on upholding the devolution...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: After Clause 1 - Common frameworks process (7 Dec 2020)

Ed Miliband: I think there is a very legitimate anxiety, which I hope the Minister will reflect on. Again, it was expressed in the Lords. Yes, the Government were defeated in the Lords—all Governments get defeated in the Lords at some point—but we are talking about unprecedented margins, because of the depth and breadth of concern among their lordships about the Bill, including on devolution. In a...
