1. Questions to the First Minister: Primary School Children who are Able to Swim (14 May 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...a replacement pool—refurbishment isn't an option. Will the First Minister state what existing funding support is available for the provision of swimming pools by local authorities and leisure trusts in Wales? What new capital funding can be made available to support the building of new and environmentally sustainable pools, which are essential for the health and well-being and safety, as...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Education: Coventry (14 May 2024)

Damian Hinds: Raising attainment for all pupils, especially disadvantaged pupils, is at the heart of this government’s agenda. Evidence shows that pupils with additional needs are more likely to fall behind and need extra support to reach their full potential. The department has consistently taken a range of steps to give priority support and deliver programmes that help disadvantaged pupils, including...

Risk-based Exclusion (13 May 2024)

Jess Phillips: ...assaulted me”, and they come round and arrest me within the hour. What world are we living in? It is absolute madness. If we do not do this on the basis of arrest, we are saying that we do not trust the police officers in our country. The hon. Member for Christchurch (Sir Christopher Chope) is not in the Chamber today—I have informed him that I will mention him. He has tabled...

Agriculture (13 May 2024)

Bill Wiggin: ...instrument is particularly interesting—I declare my interests as listed in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, but also in that I farm—because our farmers in England did not riot like their European counterparts and, to be fair, their Welsh brethren for different reasons. This is an interesting time for farming. However, who thought it was a good idea to take this statutory...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 May 2024)

Lord Sikka: ...of Public Prosecutions. Can the Minister say whether any of the CPS prosecutions being quashed were initiated by the DWP? The omission of the DWP prosecutions from the Bill is utterly unfair. Just like the Post Office and the CPS, the DWP used Horizon-generated data and faced lies and cover-ups from the Post Office. It has now been conclusively shown that the Post Office and the CPS...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Independent Environmental Protection Agency (13 May 2024)

Andrew McMurray: ...it is in the shelter of each other that the people live. I pay tribute to my predecessor, Patrick Brown, for all the work that he has done. I thank my constituency and party colleagues for entrusting me to perform this role and everyone who sent a message of congratulations or offered a prayer. Finally, I thank my wife, children, parents and wider family for their support and love at this...

Work and Pensions: Pensioners: Cost of Living (13 May 2024)

Deidre Brock: Ministers certainly seem to prefer the comfort of their own massaged figures to facts. The Trussell Trust, however, says it has seen a 36% rise in pensioners turning to food banks in the past six months, and that is likely to increase. The hard fact is that the UK devotes a smaller percentage of GDP to state pensions and pensioner benefits than most other advanced economies. When will they...

Commercial Organisations and Public Authorities Duty (Human Rights and Environment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 May 2024)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: ...endure in supply chains across the world today. That abhorrent trade was accompanied on a grand scale by deforestation, with a medium-sized galleon taking around 4,000 trees to construct. We may like to distance ourselves from that history, but it has become increasingly clear that, despite the efforts of organisations such as Anti-Slavery International, and despite the impact of the...

Pet Abduction Bill - Second Reading (10 May 2024)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...Cat Care. This Bill has government and cross-party support, for which I am most grateful. It enjoys the strong support of the admirable charities in the sector: Cats Protection, the Dogs Trust, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Refuge, the RSPCA and many others that have campaigned long and hard to get to this point. I believe it also has strong public backing, as we saw from the excellent...

Integration of Primary and Community Care (Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 9 May 2024)

Baroness Merron: ...and other factors, I am sure that we can all look forward to his constructive future contributions. Day in and day out, primary and community care services provide vital support to millions but, like much of the NHS, they are under considerable strain. Yet, as the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler, said, acute services receive more attention and priority from the Government. The backdrop to this...

Local Government Officials: Bullying ( 9 May 2024)

Simon Hoare: ...and a privilege to serve as a community representative, and all those seeking and achieving public office should be holding themselves to the highest standards of conduct in recognition of the trust placed in them. The electorate have a right to expect councillors to behave well and respectfully in all their interactions—with each other, with members of staff, and with the public....

BBC Mid-term Charter Review ( 9 May 2024)

Andy Carter: ...its services and programmes would simply not be possible to provide on a commercial basis. As I said earlier in response to the hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Justin Madders), services like Radio 4 simply would not exist in the commercial marketplace. The majority of my remarks will pick up on the comments made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Ashford about what the BBC...

Skills: Importance for the UK Economy and Quality of Life - Motion to Take Note ( 9 May 2024)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: ...consumer digital index, which is run by Lloyds Bank and commissioned by the DfE, reported that there are about 13 million people in the UK with very low digital capability, which means they “are likely to struggle interacting with online services”. Furthermore, we need to provide adults with the opportunity to improve their literacy skills. The National Literacy Trust estimates that...

Miners and Mining Communities ( 9 May 2024)

Liz Twist: ..., there were many collieries, from Chopwell to Kibblesworth and from Greenside to Bewicke Main. Each pit was surrounded by a community in which coal was not just a job, but a way of life. Like other right hon. and hon. Members, I could not go without mentioning the annual big meeting, the Durham miners’ gala. Each year, brilliant flying banners and marching brass bands bring together...

Global Intergenerational Week 2024 — [Clive Efford in the Chair] ( 9 May 2024)

Kirsty Blackman: ...to listen to all those voices—every single one—in order to make the best possible decisions. If we are listening and understanding all those different perspectives as best we can, we are more likely to consider them when we are taking decisions, and to make better decisions for everybody in our constituencies across these islands. In Scotland and in the SNP, civic values run through...

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse of LGBTQ+ People ( 9 May 2024)

Emma Roddick: ...glad to see it being given the attention that it deserves in the Parliament. I know that a massive amount of hard work is being done in the third sector to address those issues, by the likes of the Equality Network, LGBT Youth Scotland, the Terence Higgins Trust and Rape Crisis Scotland. LGBTQ people such as myself will know how important raising awareness of those issues is and...

Global Health Agencies and Vaccine-Preventable Deaths — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] ( 9 May 2024)

Andrew Mitchell: ...has been defended throughout. Indeed, as we have projected forward the draft figures, we have again protected the R&D budget in development, and it will, I think, be rising over the next few years. Like her, I have seen the remarkable work that that budget is doing. In the UK, I recently visited the Jenner Institute and saw the brilliant work that so many are doing there. I agree with the...

Business of the House ( 9 May 2024)

Penny Mordaunt: ...to which she referred. We commissioned it and I thank all the organisations that worked on it. It is important that we combat the rise of conspiracy theories, as that is part of restoring trust in what we do here and keeping trust in democracy. This publication will be a useful product, not just for Members, but for those who wish to come here too. I shall certainly make sure that the Lord...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Teacher Numbers ( 9 May 2024)

Douglas Ross: ...very specific, on a specific pledge that was made not by any other SNP MSP but by the First Minister. He was the education secretary who went to the country and told people, “Vote for the SNP. Trust me, and we will increase teacher numbers by 3,500 in this parliamentary session.” If I am not convinced by that answer from John Swinney, I do not think that any parent, pupil or...

National Networks National Policy Statement - Motion to Regret ( 8 May 2024)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the Woodland Trust and president, patron or vice-president of a range of environmental organisations. I support the Motion to Regret tabled by my noble friend Lord Berkeley. He got to the Table Office about 30 seconds before I did with my version of the Motion. He will pay for that in future. I want to challenge the previous statements, with all...
