Illegal Migration Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 6 (28 Jun 2023)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...doing this kind of thing. It amazes me that the impact statement makes no mention of what this is going to do to our reputation around the world. As someone who now practises with the International Bar Association in countries around the world, I know that this is what we are respected for. How do we speak to China about its breach of the treaty we made with it over Hong Kong? How do we...

8. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Well-being: Update on healthy food environment legislation (27 Jun 2023)

Lynne Neagle: ...look at the choices on offer, there are too many high fat, sugar or salt items with little nutritional value, and shoppers are being incentivised to over-consume, into buying a king-sized chocolate bar with their sandwich or a tub of ice cream with their evening meal. Most of us want to buy and eat a healthy diet. However, the sheer ubiquity of less healthy options combined with aggressive...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 94 (27 Jun 2023)

Lord Garnier: My Lords, I too declare an interest as a member of the Bar who has, over the past several decades, specialised in defamation. I agree with quite a lot of what the noble Lord, Lord Cromwell, has just said in that, first, this is in essence economically driven; and that, secondly, the decision in Amersi v Leslie and others did not designate that particular claim as a SLAPP. None the less, there...

Population Growth: Impact of Immigration (27 Jun 2023)

John Hayes: ..., and nearly 1 million British citizens emigrated, so net migration topped 2.7 million. The rate of inflow between 1997 and 2010 equated to one migrant arriving every minute. Every year since 1997 bar one—when the world was locked down—net migration was in excess of 100,000, and often by a much bigger margin than that.

Public Bill Committee: Victims and Prisoners Bill: Clause 1 - Meaning of “victim” (27 Jun 2023)

Anna McMorrin: ...people who are suffering that.” Dame Vera illustrated her evidence with the example of a woman sitting in her garden, minding her own business, when some lads who are sitting outside drinking beer throw a can into her garden. It is a relatively small incident—it is not particularly pleasant, but it is antisocial behaviour—but if she complains, “they chuck something at her window....

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (27 Jun 2023)

...seeing our own image. This past weekend, in synagogues around the world, Jewish people read the story of Korach, who was a cousin of Moses, from the same portion of the Torah that I read during my Bar Mitzvah, many years ago. Through this story, our sages teach us, in “The Ethics of the Fathers”, that every dispute, argument or discussion that is not for the sake of Heaven, will not...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Constitution (27 Jun 2023)

Donald Cameron: ...throughout this. The Scottish National Party has, in effect, come up with a turbocharged version of Nicola Sturgeon’s de facto referendum, except that, this time, it seems that it has set the bar even lower by saying that it does not need to win a majority of votes or even a majority of seats. It says that it just needs to win more seats than any other party. That is a nonsense. The SNP...

Mike Freer: Wales was 2,106—a 34% increase from pre-pandemic levels.

As I have said, the Government remain committed to reducing the outstanding case load in the Crown courts, working with partners across the system.

Road User Charging Schemes — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (26 Jun 2023)

Gareth Bacon: ...banning of smoking in pubs. Would my hon. Friend agree that the banning of smoking in pubs was not subject to a £12.50 charge—as if someone paying £12.50 would not be polluting the air in the pub while smoking? The comparison between the two is completely and utterly bonkers.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Business and Trade: Full Repayment of HM Government loan by Celsa Steel UK (26 Jun 2023)

Kemi Badenoch: ...also willing to consider bespoke support on a ‘last resort’ basis where a viable company of strategic importance had exhausted all other options available. The Government set an extremely high bar for using taxpayers’ money in this way, and we were clear that any companies seeking Government support should do so only as an absolute last resort. In 2020, Celsa Steel UK met all the...

Defence: Nato (26 Jun 2023)

Kevan Jones: ...Assembly passed a resolution, under the presidency of Congressman Gerry Connolly, to create a democracy resilience centre within NATO. I understand that this has been agreed by all nations bar one.

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...also been tested extensively as part of the Law Commission’s report Modernising Communications Offences, when determining what the threshold of harm should be for this offence.

Lord Bethell: ...they have happened. We know that this works because we have seen it work already. It has been widely reported that, at the start of December 2020, Pornhub, the famous porn site, said in its search bar that it was hosting 13.5 million clips. Then, on 14 December, that figure was dramatically reduced overnight to 5 million. What had happened was that Pornhub had removed two-thirds of the...

Public Bill Committee: Victims and Prisoners Bill: Examination of Witnesses (22 Jun 2023)

...only doing those really high-risk cases. Let us deconstruct what an IDVA is. An IDVA is somebody who has gone through a 12-day training programme. This is not a master’s degree or an impossible bar; it is a really basic level of minimum threshold that you should get to. Everybody who works in domestic abuse should have the right to that level of training. We expect it in the care...
