Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Valerie Vaz: Follow that, as they say. I just say that the number has been printed incorrectly: the digits should be reversed for my age. [Laughter.] I thank the Leader of the House for updating us on the business for the next few weeks. It is more or less settled, subject, I suppose, to a few phone calls. Obviously, we were expecting a statement from the Prime Minister earlier this week. We know the...

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for helpfully giving us the forthcoming business all the way up to the Christmas recess. I also thank her for the extra Opposition day, which is very useful. I am slightly saddened that the date given for the debate on restoration and renewal was not when the Leader of the House originally said she intended it to be—she said it would be before...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (16 Nov 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for her statement and for letting me have sight of it, albeit late last night. As the Leader of the House indicated, the working party has met. There are many issues to deal with, but we hope to have an outcome before the House rises for Christmas. The Labour party is working with all other parties to ensure that there is a robust process that everyone is...

Valerie Vaz: That is day three of eight. We are talking about clause 5 and schedule 1. Can the Leader of the House confirm that the deadline for new clauses and amendments is 5.30 pm today?

There is a commitment on behalf of the Labour party to find a common process that will deal with these serious issues, but also retain the rights of MPs as...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman) for raising this very important issue: 35 years in this place and she is trying to take society forward in a leap. May I also thank you, Mr Speaker, for your statement? I welcome the statement of the Leader of the House and thank her for early sight of it. We on the Labour Benches are ready to work...

Points of Order (26 Oct 2017)

Valerie Vaz: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. The Leader of the House may have inadvertently misled the House by saying that her written ministerial statement was available at 10.30 am. In fact, we have heard numerous times at which it became available. Some say they only received the alert at 11.42 am and others say 11.30 am. When a written statement is produced, could she ensure that we all...

Will she confirm that we will have all eight days...

Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for the forthcoming business—again, it is just for one week, not two—and also join her in wishing everybody peace and prosperity for Diwali. I also thank her for providing an advance copy, which I got via email on Tuesday, and the Vote Office in Portcullis for having hard copies of it for Members on Monday. This week, the sky darkened, a hurricane...

Valerie Vaz: Will the Leader of the House please give us the forthcoming business?

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I am wearing pink, Mr Speaker, so I thought you might have noticed that I was sitting here. I thank the Leader of the House for announcing the forthcoming business. Did the she really announce the Second Reading of a Bill that had its First Reading and was published yesterday? I have looked at the Bill, and it is riddled with delegated powers to Ministers. Is this an acceptable way for the...
