Royal Bank of Scotland Branch Closures (14 May 2024)

Carla Lockhart: Since 2020, 50 banks in Northern Ireland have closed and only one banking hub has opened. Does the Minister agree that that is just not acceptable? The criteria do need changing. We have heard great plans from the Government to help to change it, but when will that happen? When will the criteria change, and when will the Government take this on board?

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland (14 May 2024)

Carla Lockhart: What else are the Government not telling us about where the EU has overreach into Northern Ireland, and where people in Northern Ireland are once again in limbo between two regulatory entities? Will the Secretary of State and the Government do the right thing and stop stringing the people of Northern Ireland along by simply appealing the decision, and will the Secretary of State commit to...

Road Safety: Headlight Glare ( 8 May 2024)

Carla Lockhart: I commend the hon. Gentleman for securing this timely debate. He will be aware that the investigation concluded that 44% of drivers think dazzle could be caused by badly aligned headlights.

Treasury: Topical Questions ( 7 May 2024)

Carla Lockhart: The consistently high price of fuel is making drivers dig deep just to go about their daily business.

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 May 2024)

Carla Lockhart: Hypocrisy needs to be called out. Everyone in this House will recall the former Irish Prime Minister in Brussels with a photograph of a bombed customs post, lamenting that any border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland was unworkable, in breach of the Belfast agreement and could result in such troubles again. The hypocrisy of the Irish Government position has not been not...

Assisted Dying — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (29 Apr 2024)

Carla Lockhart: I am grateful to speak on this important issue, and it is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Devizes (Danny Kruger). The supporters of the petition want to alleviate suffering at the end of life. That is a commendable motivation, and something we can all agree on. However, making it legal for doctors to help people to kill themselves is simply not the answer. It is so important that we...

Assisted Dying — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (29 Apr 2024)

Carla Lockhart: As we have heard and as I will go on in my speech to say, when the law is introduced it is expanded and the potential safeguards are not safeguards at all—it is a slippery slope. By investing in social care, by continuing to be a world leader in palliative care, and by being a society that respects life and upholds the dignity of the elderly and of people with disabilities, we can give hope...

Assisted Dying — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (29 Apr 2024)

Carla Lockhart: I am going to make progress. In Canada, it took only five years from the 2016 introduction of assisted suicide for those whose death was “reasonably foreseeable” to be expanded to the ill-defined “serious and incurable illnesses” criteria in 2021. In Oregon, in the US, people have been given assisted deaths because of diabetes, hernias, arthritis and anorexia, with the “terminal...
