Written Answers — Department for Education: Higher Education: Admissions ( 4 Sep 2023)

Lisa Nandy: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to page 2 of the Department for Education's consultation response entitled Higher Education Policy Statement and Reform: Government consultation response, published in July 2023, what assessment her Department has made of the potential impact of proposals to cap the numbers of students on low quality courses on (a) students and (b)...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: House Building (10 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: Do the Government realise how absurd all of this sounds? Their own flagship Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill, which is currently making its way through the House of Lords, has measures in it to block new homes from being built, and yet the Minister stands here berating councils for getting in the way. All of this is happening because Conservative Back Benchers have more control of housing...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: House Building (10 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: It is literally in the Government’s own Bill—they are trying to block new houses from being built. They have had 17 housing Ministers and three planning overhauls, and house building is at its lowest level for a generation.

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: House Building (10 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: The Secretary of State wants to talk now—why did he not take the question? I suspect it is because he has again run into so much opposition from his Back Benchers about a story briefed only yesterday that he has had to abandon it. One hundred small and medium-sized house builders have been protesting to Downing Street and mortgages have gone through the roof. It really does take some brass...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I beg to move an amendment, to leave out from “That” to the end of the Question and add: “this House, while opposing any discrimination or prejudice in the economic activities of public bodies, believing that all such bodies must act without bias or selectivity when making ethical decisions on procurement and investment and recognising the impact selective and biased campaigns have had...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that I feel strongly that BDS offers no meaningful route to peace either for the Palestinians or for the Israelis. I can assure him that when BDS is used as an argument for the total economic, social and cultural isolation of the world’s only Jewish state, not only will I speak out but I have spoken out time and time again. As far as I know, I am the...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: This is a debate that needs far less heat and far more light, because we are talking about real people—about communities in the UK who are among the most marginalised and discriminated against in our country. I thank the Secretary of State for acknowledging in his opening remarks that Labour Front Benchers are acting in good faith in the approach we have taken, but I would echo a note of...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I am grateful to the hon. and learned Lady for raising those concerns. We are keen that all the voices in this debate ought to be heard; I have heard different views from across the Jewish community, but I have to say to her that the overwhelming view I have heard is that there is a desperate need to tackle this very real problem. The strength of feeling in the Jewish community that we must...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: That is absolutely right. In fact, the Union of Jewish Students, which has expressed real concerns about the Bill—the very students who have often been the targets of the appalling abuse and attacks that the hon. Gentleman has outlined—is clear that it wants to see this problem tackled. I hope that is a basis on which we can proceed across the House in a debate that, as I have said,...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I thank my hon. Friend for raising that concern, which has also been raised with me. I defer to the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns), who I know will make a contribution in due course. What is not clear to me and other Labour Members is why the Government have sought to draw this Bill’s powers so broadly. It is not just...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I hope, as the debate goes on, that there may be an answer to this, but I have to confess that so far I am at a loss as to what it might be. Where does this leave our commitment to international law, given that it cuts across UN resolutions, as Conservative Members have highlighted, and weakens Britain’s stated support for a two-state solution, as the hon. Member has said? The legal advice...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I will not give way, if my hon. Friend will forgive me. A lot of people are wishing to speak, and given that she has made one intervention, I will make a bit of progress. As if that were not bad enough, it seems that nobody in Government has thought of the consequences for local government pension funds, which is arguably the one area where councils have to have a global outlook. Let me give...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: South Africa is obviously a different case, but the point my hon. Friend makes remains and is well founded, because this Bill concentrates the decision making and judgment of hundreds of public bodies in the hands of just one person.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: This is precisely the question that the Government have yet to answer, but we hope that will be forthcoming during this debate. I would add to what the right hon. Gentleman said that the local government pension service is already under a fiduciary duty to take prudent investment decisions based on an assessment of the financial consequence of a number of matters, including environmental and...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I listened carefully to what the hon. Gentleman had to say and I support it, but he should please not try to tarnish Labour Members with a record on antisemitism. There are those of us who stood up not just to those who are supposed to be our opponents, but to those who are supposed to be our friends as well. And we will always do that. I give my word, and I give our word on behalf of the...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I want to start by saying that Labour strongly supports this Bill and welcomes the Second Reading of it today. We agree very much with the sentiment expressed by Conservative Members that the sooner and more swiftly we are able to make progress with this, the better. The movement to create a fitting national memorial to mark, to remember and, most of all, to learn from the horrors of the...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. Like me, she will have had the experience of going into schools and colleges in our constituencies, and had the privilege of meeting survivors of the holocaust, and watching the faces of young people as comprehension dawns of the true horror of what happened, with resolve forming in them that never again should that be allowed to happen. The power of that...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I agree wholeheartedly with my hon. Friend. There are many, many lessons to learn from the darkest era of our recent history, but one of those lessons must surely be the importance of political courage and political leadership. Those of us on the Opposition Benches know how important that is, and that no institution is immune from the scourge of antisemitism. One of the reasons why I raced...
