Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A (26 Nov 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, the last words in this House of my late noble friend Lord Shutt of Greetland helped to carry an amendment to this Bill by 293 votes to 215. The majority for that amendment was 78 in a vote in which more than 500 Peers took part and which was supported by more than 80% of the Cross-Bench Peers who voted—but it was not accepted. The whole House should now be grateful to the noble...

Free School Meals - Private Notice Question (27 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, I too am one of the few Members of the House of Lords who depended on free school meals, and it never made sense to me that you got this sort of support in term time but nothing in the school holidays. Can the Minister tell the House when Ministers will stop saying publicly that they agree with Marcus Rashford while voting down his proposals? Is it not time to do the right thing?

Cancer Task Force - Question (20 Oct 2020)

The Commons Health Select Committee has reported that the number of MRI and CT scans to diagnose the disease has plummeted by 75%. Given that the Government spend on average half as much on capital...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Local COVID-19 Alert Level) (Very High) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (14 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, there is possibly nowhere else in the country more lacking in confidence and trust in Boris Johnson’s Government than Liverpool. Previous Conservative Governments spoke about “managing Liverpool’s decline”—but Liverpool fought back, and what the city needs now is a managed recovery from the Covid pandemic. Almost everyone in Liverpool recognises that, with intensive care...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 16 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, in the debate on this Bill in the other place on 14 July, the Minister Chloe Smith spoke about “what we are doing to ensure that the registers are as accurate and complete as possible” and said: “We should encourage more people to register to vote.”—[Official Report, Commons, 14/7/20; col. 1466.] This amendment does nothing more than ask the Government to say how. It...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 12 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, in 2013 and 2018 plans for revisions to constituency boundaries were published. They did not find favour with MPs, the Government dare not even produce the 2018 report before Parliament for it to be considered, and these plans were never implemented. The plans themselves clearly demonstrated how much more massively disruptive all future boundaries will be compared with anything...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, the Bill sets out a system for reviewing constituency boundaries which will result in changes much more dramatic than those of any previous reviews ever put in place. I would like you to imagine the position of a newly elected MP in a general election in 2025. They will have won a seat with new boundaries, but just four years later a new boundary revision process will begin. From...

Health Care: Guidance - Question (21 Sep 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, I refer to my entry in the register of interests. Older people are more vulnerable to complications from the virus. Many more of them will have diabetes, and many more will feel that they need cancer treatment urgently. So why are so many older people still worried that they might be treated less favourably by the NHS due to their age? In particular, will the Minister explain how...
