Ukraine - Motion to Take Note (21 Sep 2023)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...speak from the high ground of having respected international law on other fronts. I want to talk about the challenges presented by this war. As many noble Lords know, I work with the International Bar Association; I am the director of its Human Rights Institute, and we work on the rule of law and human rights globally. One subject that we have been addressing is that, if there are to be...

Post Office Compensation - Statement (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Fox: prove themselves innocent, or is the assessment the other way around? It seems to me much harder to prove innocence than to refute guilt. Perhaps one way of moving this forward is to change the bar that people have to clear in the assessment process, and make it clear to them that it has been lowered and made easier. Perhaps we are applying too rigorous a standard for people who were so...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (19 Sep 2023)

the Earl of Lytton: ...years ago, there was a common rating system, and residential and commercial had a common base. That is why I got little old ladies in cottages in Lewes High Street in Sussex complaining that the pub next door, which sold all this liquor, had a rating assessment that was half theirs. What has happened is that, because of the burdens, markets have shifted. The noble Lord, Lord Thurlow,...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 4 (19 Sep 2023)

the Earl of Courtown: ...practice. Our aim is to find a balanced solution that prevents sharp practice but does not impinge on the legitimate work of agents up and down the country. Amendment 4 would remove the legislative bar which prevents local authorities awarding discretionary rate relief to their own properties. I understand that the concerns of the noble Lord and the noble Baroness are primarily with the...

West Coast Main Line Franchise (19 Sep 2023)

Gavin Newlands: ...of State says that “Avanti is the most improved operator where performance is compared to the previous year.” Well, that would not be particularly hard—talk about setting yourself a low bar. This award will be seen by most people as rewarding failure. My criticism of Avanti is in no way reflective of the staff, who have been first class when I have used the service. I was not...

Written Answers — Treasury: Beer: Excise Duties (19 Sep 2023)

Daisy Cooper: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 7 September 2023 to Question 197611 on Beer: Excise Duties, whether he plans to bring forward legislative proposals to provide an exemption to paying full duty on containers for on-trade premises whose takeaway sales are ancillary to the sale for consumption on the premises.

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Public Houses: Energy (19 Sep 2023)

Amanda Solloway: ...We are also helping the industry by cutting their business rates by 75%, as well as increasing the Draught Relief duty differential from 5% to 9.2% to ensure the duty on a draught pint served in a pub did not increase from August.

Scottish Parliament: Drug Law Reform (19 Sep 2023)

Paul Sweeney: As I have said on more occasions than I care to remember, Scotland’s drug deaths crisis is the most important public health emergency that communities across the country face, bar none. There is no magic bullet—only a fool would suggest that there is. The reality is that it will require a collective approach from every party in the Parliament and a whole-system response that embraces...

UK Export Performance (18 Sep 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: ..., where do you start? You start where Wold Top Brewery, in my constituency, started. It is run by the wonderful Mellor family, a farming family from near Hunmanby. They started making their own beer because they had grain on their farm and an artesian well. They make some fantastic beer, including Wold Gold, which I heartily recommend. It has been in the Strangers Bar and I will tell you...

Home Department: Drugs Policy: Scotland (18 Sep 2023)

Chris Philp: As I said to the hon. Lady at the Bar of the House last week, I am due to be in Edinburgh in early December, so I would be delighted to accept her invitation to visit the facility in Glasgow.

Private Parking Code of Practice - Question for Short Debate (14 Sep 2023)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: ...we are not talking about any of those. The latest case I heard was of someone who stopped at a local shopping centre—it was in Flitwick, which might indicate why they were there—which had a pub restaurant, for a lunchtime meal. The pub was very busy and took so long to serve them that they eventually cancelled their order and left the car park just five minutes after the allotted...

Scottish Parliament: Single-use Vapes (Environmental Impact) (14 Sep 2023)

Kenneth Gibson: ...a £350,000 donation from Sandeep Singh Chadha, director of Supreme 8 Ltd, a UK-based company that distributes Elf Bars, which are vapes that are regularly found littered around Scotland. Elf Bar flavours include watermelon, bubble gum and cotton candy ice, which are unequivocally aimed at enticing children and young people. The UK Government’s official briefing on banning free vape...

Scottish Parliament: Football (14 Sep 2023)

Maree Todd: ...the country every week present little or no issues from a football safety officer perspective or a policing perspective. Many have local arrangements with pubs and clubs for pre-match access for a beer and a bite to eat, whether it be a substantial meal or a microwaved scotch pie. However, the proposed guidelines portray a travelling football support that requires to be highly regulated in...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 248 (13 Sep 2023)

Lord Naseby: thoroughly disproportionate. As far as I know, my Government have no plan to ban outdoor smoking. It has rejected similar amendments in the past. Excessive regulation could even lead to some pub closures and job losses. This would be to no one’s benefit. Again, as a non-smoker, I find encouragement that the figures for people who smoke seem to go down every year. We should think back...

8. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The Restricted Roads (20 mph Speed Limit) (Wales) Order 2022 (13 Sep 2023)

Huw Irranca-Davies: ...their names to a debate urging a default 20 mph limit in residential areas and actually went on to say, 'We'd like to emulate up to 50 councils in England', Conservatives who in a debate in 2020 all bar one backed this proposal for a default 20 mph limit—one exception. The other ones who backed it, by the way, were the kippers, the Reform Party and Uncle Tom Cobley and all. And to Janet...

Energy Supply Market: Small Businesses (13 Sep 2023)

Kerry McCarthy: ...hospitality businesses to resolve the issues they are facing with fixed prices that are far above the current market level. However, that sort of voluntary approach is not good enough. The British Beer and Pub Association has been calling on Ofgem to ensure that, beyond voluntary measures for suppliers, there is also “recourse to more binding mechanisms to ensure expected standards of...

High Street Heritage and Conservation Areas — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (13 Sep 2023)

Jack Brereton: ...about listings. We should look at the process in Wales and whether it could be applied in England to protect buildings under huge threat, such as we saw with the destruction of the Crooked House pub. I also thank my hon. Friend the Member for Milton Keynes North (Ben Everitt), although I will make a little correction: Staffordshire is not part of the Black Country, although part of the...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: After Clause 46 - Register of members: information to be included and powers to obtain it (13 Sep 2023)

Kit Malthouse: .... The limits that are drawn here will draw in all manner of businesses, not least some eminent barristers who will fall foul of some of the numbers. Indeed, the average town-centre or city-centre pub will be covered by these regulations, such is their level of turnover and employees. It is worrying that I am perhaps the only small-business voice here and that there are not enough...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (7th Day): Amendment 228 (13 Sep 2023)

Lord Lexden: Is that not a wholly reasonable proposition? We were told in Committee that my noble friend Lady Scott said “it remains the case that planning permission is required to change use to or from a pub. This ensures that local consideration can be given to any such proposals, in consultation with the local community”. Surely local communities should have a say in the establishment of...

Scottish Parliament: Short-term Lets Licensing Scheme (13 Sep 2023)

Willie Rennie: ...they cannot find a home to live in. We can consider the Balcomie housing development in Crail. Apart from the social housing section at the back of the new development, all the other properties, bar a few, are now used as short-term lets or second homes. That has happened within a few short years of the estate being built. Ten miles away, in St Andrews, the situation is even more acute....
