1. Questions to the First Minister: MRI Scans ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...health boards that they should utilise all available capacity, including through the independent sector, to reduce waiting times. Our overall objective is to have a genuinely sustainable public national health service.

1. Questions to the First Minister: The North Wales Economy ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: ...across the UK, a Government that can make decisions. The reason why we have not seen investment delivered in a new generation of nuclear, whether that is for radioisotopes desperately needed in our national health service or whether it's new small modular reactors or larger technology, is because the Conservatives have never managed to field a Minister who could make a decision. It is...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Economic Development ( 4 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: Thank you for the question. I agree that the national service model proposed as a shock by Rishi Sunak was not just a shock to young people, but a shock to many Conservative MPs and indeed, Ministers—a desperate gimmick at the start of a crucial general election for Wales and Britain. And the Member's right to draw a contrast between that and what we have chosen to do with the young...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Independent Inquiry into the Alleged Use of Wiretapping of Northern Ireland Journalists ( 4 Jun 2024)

Naomi Long: ...to the use and oversight of covert surveillance powers in the UK. The Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (IPA) provides a framework for the use of investigatory powers by the security and intelligence services, law enforcement bodies and other public authorities. The legislation is UK-wide, dealing as it does with excepted matters. The powers cover the interception of communications; the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Health: Vision Statement ( 3 Jun 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: I thank the Member for his question. I am aware, as, I am sure, he and the House are, that the health service is an incredibly complex organisation with so many moving parts. To do something in one area inevitably is repercussive and will have implications for another area. As I am sure the Member is aware, I spent a few weeks as my predecessor's Assembly Private Secretary. I tried to use as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Health: Vision Statement ( 3 Jun 2024)

Mike Nesbitt: ...and advancing a respectful, positive working environment for each and every member of the Health and Social Care (HSC) family. I refuse to accept the fatalistic narrative coming from some that the National Health Service is spiralling towards inevitable failure. In three short words, my ambition is this: for better outcomes. Obstacles to better outcomes include short-term challenges, the...

Scottish Parliament: Post Office (Horizon System) Offences (Scotland) Bill (30 May 2024)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...in support of an important and historic piece of legislation. When I think of the sub-postmasters in my constituency, I think of public servants who, for very little money, offer a service above and beyond the call of duty in more cases than not. I see a reflection of the duties that we perform as parliamentarians in the community service that they offer. They perform a public...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Physiotherapy Workforce (30 May 2024)

Sue Webber: ...been no such increase in Scotland in the past decade. Although Scottish course programmes are oversubscribed with applicants, not enough places are being funded to meet the needs of Scotland’s national health service. Increasing the number of training places in physiotherapy programmes and enhancing support for students could and would help to boost the number of new graduates...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: NHS Waiting Times (30 May 2024)

Anas Sarwar: ...chose to put his party before the country. Had Michael Matheson been at Westminster, he would now be facing a recall petition and, potentially, a by-election, but yet again, those in the Scottish National Party hold Scotland to a lower standard and believe that it is one rule for them and another rule for everyone else. While John Swinney spent all his time this week managing...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Health and Care Worker Visa Applications (30 May 2024)

John Swinney: I give Clare Haughey that assurance. The question that Clare Haughey puts to me highlights some significant issues. Mr Sarwar completely legitimately raised an issue about national health service waiting times with me today. One of the challenges that we face in the health service is the congestion in our hospitals that is created by delayed discharge. One of the issues with delayed discharge...

Prorogation: His Majesty’s Speech (24 May 2024)

...of living. My Ministers have met their commitment to halve inflation, which is now at its lowest rate since September 2021. My Government has delivered tax cuts for millions of working people, with National Insurance contributions for employees cut by four percentage points, saving a typical employee over £900 a year. National Insurance contributions for the self-employed have also been...

His Majesty’s Most Gracious Speech (24 May 2024)

Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Lucy Powell: ..., I have felt slightly like a gate-crasher at a private party, but I am glad to have been here. Today has shown that all of us in politics know that this is a vocation, not a job. It is a life in service, always in the public eye, and very rarely with an off switch. We have been reminded today, as we often are, that the constituents are the boss, and our families are the bedrock. A huge...

...until an event of a specified description occurs—(a) section 20CA(1) does not have effect before the event, but(b) section 20CA(1) does have effect on or after the event in relation to a variable service charge paid or payable before the event.(4) Accordingly, if—(a) a variable service charge was paid before the event, and(b) the landlord’s litigation costs were regarded as relevant...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (24 May 2024)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...over the past six or seven years. There are things that we have heard repeatedly from the Member for Surrey Heath in the other place, which have been repeated on Sky News, the BBC, ITV and in most national newspapers. I am sure that now, finally—at the last possible chance—all those pledges are here. I am sure that the Minister will confirm to me the promise on ground rents. We heard...

Code of Practice on Fair and Transparent Distribution of Tips - Motion to Approve (24 May 2024)

Lord Leong: ...tips—or, more specifically, the draft Code of Practice on Fair and Transparent Distribution of Tips. The hourly rates of pay in hospitality jobs are rarely fantastic, especially before Labour’s national minimum wage, but they are often boosted considerably by tips. Although we do not have such a strong tipping culture as, say, the United States or many countries on the continent,...

Energy (24 May 2024)

Jeff Smith: ...motion, we do not intend to object to this instrument, as the measures are generally consequential to elements of the Energy Act 2023, which we supported. The creation of a new body, ISOP, now the National Energy System Operator, is essential to managing and planning the expansion and operation of our energy system as we transition to net zero. Labour called for the creation of this body...

Coroners (Suspension of Requirement for Jury at Inquest: Coronavirus) Regulations 2024 - Motion to Approve (24 May 2024)

Lord Sandhurst: .... That does not lead to efficiency or proper funding and resources. I hope that it will not be too long, as senior coroners in the past have urged, before the coronial system is put on a proper national basis within the courts service.

Licensing Act 2003 (UEFA European Football Championship Licensing Hours) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve (24 May 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ...Lords, Lord Coaker and Lord Ponsonby, in particular, who have always dealt with me with great courtesy and respect. Together we have achieved a great deal, particularly in some tricky areas around national security. I extend my thanks to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, who, frankly, saved my bacon on a very tricky Bill, which I have not forgotten; I appreciate it. On a personal...

Coroners (24 May 2024)

Bob Neill: ...coroners system, which is that it is piecemeal and sits outside the rest of the normal judicial framework. I hope that a future Government will revisit our recommendation that we should move to a national coroners service. That would ensure greater consistency and that the same service is provided to bereaved families right across the country, which is currently not the case. It would be a...
