Colombia: National Liberation Army - Question (22 Jun 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...with Norway and Mexico. Those indigenous community MPs were optimistic but the next stage for transitional justice is going to be critical for community buy-in, especially on land rights issues. The Bar Human Rights Committee supported this work. Are we continuing to support it?

Business of the House (22 Jun 2023)

Thangam Debbonaire: I have done only 90 seconds. I thank the Leader of the House for stepping up while the Prime Minister stepped aside in Monday’s vote to start restoring trust in democracy. It is a very low bar, but a big improvement on her predecessor but one, who tried to rip up the standards system when faced with a similar situation. As grateful as I am, it must have been difficult for the Leader of the...

Scottish Parliament: Children (Care and Justice) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (22 Jun 2023)

Roz McCall: ...a passport, get married, have children, have a job, pay taxes, vote and even change their name. However, they cannot drive, get a tattoo, watch an 18-rated film, buy cigarettes or buy a pint in a pub, and that is before we take into consideration the Scottish Government’s policies on changing gender and standing for Parliament. If, in a care and judicial setting, a young person is a...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) (21 Jun 2023)

James Sunderland: ...Home Office made the decision recently to ban animal testing in toto across the UK, even though it has been ruled lawful in the UK and the EU. Does the Minister agree that the UK has a much higher bar for animal welfare in testing than the European Union?

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill: Schedule - Minimum service levels for certain strikes (21 Jun 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...of, and he listed very important people in our society—our nurses, train drivers and border security officers. But is he properly representing the many other stakeholders in this debate, such as pub landlords, restauranteurs, hoteliers and people seeking urgent medical treatment or trying to get to work or to see family? There have been 600,000 cancelled appointments as a result of the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children: Poverty (21 Jun 2023)

Claire Coutinho: ...the country. 88% of schools are now rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’. The rate of improvement has been even greater in Portsmouth, where there has been an increase in schools reaching this high bar of 36% over the course of this government. In 2018, the department launched the £60 million English Hubs Programme. The 34 English Hubs are primary schools which are rated outstanding at...

Scottish Parliament: Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Jun 2023)

Jamie Greene:, this is not the introduction of whole-life sentences through the back door; this is about the power of release and the Parole Board’s decision-making process. Nor is it imposing a definitive bar on releasing someone, in contradiction of any human rights that they may hold. I have heard all the imaginable arguments about that and I understand them. What the amendment does is ensure...

Heritage Sites: Sustainability (20 Jun 2023)

Tim Farron: many of our communities means that I can name many villages where almost 90% of the housing stock is not lived in all year round. So you lose your school, you lose your bus service, you lose your pub. You lose everything there is that held the community together. We also see a growth in the ownership of the landscape falling into private hands. I trudged my way around Windermere lake a...

Co-operatives and Alternative Businesses: Local Authority Support — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (20 Jun 2023)

Dehenna Davison: ...across the UK. I have had the pleasure of visiting a number of such projects and seeing the vital roles that they play locally. One of my highlights from my early visits was a visit to the Old Forge pub in Inverie, otherwise known as the mainland’s remotest pub. Certainly for the people in that community, it is more than a pub; it is very much a central pillar of their community, right...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: New Clause 4 - Domestic top-up tax to apply from 31 December 2023 (20 Jun 2023)

Victoria Atkins: ...hon. Friend the Member for Vale of Glamorgan (Alun Cairns) raised important questions regarding alcohol duty. He welcomes the changes in the round, but as the chair of the all-party parliamentary beer group, it is understandable that he is asking whether the draught relief is designed to apply to off-trade pints as well as on-trade pints. I am afraid that it is not, because we want to...

Public Bill Committee: Victims and Prisoners Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Jun 2023)

...there are people who are suffering that. I had cases when I was an MP years ago but they still came to me when I was the Victims’ Commissioner. A woman is in her home; lads sit outside drinking beer and chuck the can into her garden. If she complains, they chuck something at her window. They stamp on her plants. They kick the ball against the gable end all the time. They shout abuse....

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 260 - Provision of additional police services (20 Jun 2023)

Alan Whitehead:, “Well, they are not surplus to requirements. They are a key part of the Civil Nuclear Constabulary and they are doing a good job.” I would therefore expect that there would be a fairly high bar as to what was “reasonable in all the circumstances”, but that is not defined. Our amendment attempts to define that effectively, by saying that the release of these officers would be...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: Clause 256 - Application to the territorial sea of requirement for nuclear site licence (20 Jun 2023)

Alan Whitehead: ...that the Bill makes to nuclear legislation, there is still an obligation, upon full decommissioning, to ensure that there is no hazard whatever on the site from any radiation. That is quite a high bar. I am sure that is something we would all support. Do the planners and organisers of new power stations—Hinkley C and Sizewell C—plan for on-site storage over the next period and for...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill: Clause 2 - Designation of undertaking (20 Jun 2023)

...basis over the coming days and, I am afraid to say, probably weeks. [Laughter.] I turn to amendment 55. This Bill is already hundreds of pages long, and it was often noted in my former career at the Bar that legislation gets longer and longer as it seeks to become more and more specific. However, there is a risk with seeking to list all the elements that we wish to cover. By having a list,...

Treasury: Hospitality Businesses (20 Jun 2023)

Victoria Atkins: ...worth £13.6 billion over the next five years, which includes increased generosity from the retail, hospitality and leisure relief scheme from 50% to 75% in 2023-24. There is also our Brexit pub guarantee, which means that the duty on a draught pint in a pub will always be lower than its equivalent in the supermarket.

Privilege: Conduct of Right Hon. Boris Johnson (19 Jun 2023)

Martin Docherty: ...will go through the Lobby tonight to support the report, with all its limitations. However, it does not answer the question that my constituents want answered as to why Boris Johnson is not at the Bar, being held in contempt as a stranger. Some people may say that that is a bit of an arcane process, but he was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland....

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Second Reading (19 Jun 2023)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...and learned Lord, Lord Etherton, talked about the serious challenges facing our high streets and smaller businesses. I particularly mention concerns that were drawn to my attention by the British Beer and Pub Association, which has concerns about certain aspects of the Bill, particularly around the proposals for improvement relief. Of course, it is important to have the improvement relief...

Lifelong Learning (Higher Education Fee Limits) Bill - Second Reading (19 Jun 2023)

Lord Rees of Ludlow: .... There is nothing magic about the attainment threshold that is reached after three or four years. Another thing is that it would improve social mobility if universities, such as my own, whose entry bar is dauntingly high were to reserve a fraction of their places for students who do not come directly from school. They could thereby offer a second chance to those who were disadvantaged at...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children in Care: Supported Housing (19 Jun 2023)

Claire Coutinho: ...a system of Ofsted-led registration and inspection, which will drive up the quality and consistency of this provision. This vital reform programme, backed by £142 million in funding, will raise the bar for supported accommodation and ensure that this provision meets the needs of the young people it serves. Ofsted started registering providers from 28 April 2023, and registration becomes...

Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2023)

Jon Ashworth: ...of State was the guest, and revealed that he was saying to his friends in their 50s who were not working: “Why don’t you just go and serve in the local restaurant or do something in the pub?” Well, a very prominent 59-year-old has just taken early retirement. Will the Secretary of State be voting to sanction him, or is he advising him to just go away and work in the pub?
