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...

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.

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (24 May 2024)

Lord Livermore: ...that what the British economy now needs is more of the same—more of what they have delivered over the past 14 years: the highest tax burden for 70 years; the average household £870 worse off; national debt at its highest since the 1960s; families paying hundreds of pounds more every month on their mortgage bills; and economic growth on the floor. Now committed to delivering more of the...

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.
