Protection from Sex-based Harassment in Public Bill - Second Reading (16 Jun 2023)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: ...nature of that ongoing campaign from the noble Baroness, Lady Hussein-Ece, when she talked about the limitations, as she and the campaigners described them, of the Bill, including the level of the bar of intent, where things can be dismissed as banter. Perhaps more legislation on such definitions will come forward in future—I do not know. Nevertheless, I welcome the Bill. I welcome a bit...

Migration (15 Jun 2023)

Patrick Grady: ...-UKIP UKIP or various other outfits on the hard and far right. Meanwhile organisations in commerce and industry across the country are desperate for staff. Some days it seems that just about every bar, restaurant and retail outlet in Glasgow has signs up saying, “Staff wanted”. Crops are being ploughed back under the earth because farms cannot get enough help, and NHS backlogs are...

Pride Month (15 Jun 2023)

Martin Docherty: ...very foggy in my old age. I came out to my friends Neil and Stephen when I was 19, and their first reaction was, “Alright. Okay, tell us something we didn’t know; can we go to the Radnor Park pub for a pint? Right, okay, nae bother.” They, like me, are very open individuals—Stephen especially, because of his trade union involvement. As a heterosexual man and a trade unionist, he is...

Public Broadcasting in Scotland — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Jun 2023)

Pete Wishart: ...happens; Northern Ireland is in the same situation. People in England and Wales can watch their national football team free to air—no problem. But in Scotland, they have to fork out or go to the pub to watch it with friends. That is not a bad prospect, but why is it only Scots on this island who have to pay? And the cost is not cheap. In a competition to secure the rights to host and...

NHS: Performance and Innovation - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2023)

Lord Allan of Hallam: .... In fact, we are so neighbourly that the places in our pantomime names—the “of wherever” bit that we get in our formal titles—are adjacent to each other: Ecclesall in my case and Hunter’s Bar in his, for those aficionados of Sheffield neighbourhoods. The theme of the debate invites us to consider the current challenges and potential solutions, and I will try to do that in my...

Scottish Parliament: Gender-sensitive Audit (15 Jun 2023)

Michelle Thomson: ...been made today. There are many recommendations around the likes of making the Parliament family friendly, job sharing, representation on committee and proxy voting. I will not mention them all, bar another nod to the fact that it proves that men still dominate in roles that involve finance when you look across the board. I note, too, that although the report concentrates on us as MSPs and...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 139A (14 Jun 2023)

Lord German: ...amendment, although it seeks to halt bringing the provisions of the Bill into force until the analysis of the abuse is revealed and the recommendations are made, has also received the support of the Bar Council, which “considers that it would be wise to await the outcome of that inquiry before considering whether the Home Secretary should be afforded yet more extensive detention powers...

2. Questions to the Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd: Tourism in Rural Communities (14 Jun 2023)

Tom Giffard: ...'s been a specific rural impact assessment done on the impact that these changes could have not only on the self-catering holiday let properties themselves, but the wider infrastructure—that local pub, the local shop and so on—that visitors can often keep viable. So, can you confirm whether or not that work has been done, please, and what specific representations have you made about...

Bank Closures: Stoke-on-Trent North: Insolvency Law and Director Disqualifications — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (14 Jun 2023)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...were because of misuse or abuse of the bounce back loan scheme, rather than more robust action being taken against directors for unfit conduct prior to insolvency. I suggest that that is because the bar for disqualification for unfit conduct is very high and often difficult to prove, particularly where a director can claim to have relied on the advice of external advisers when making...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 128B (14 Jun 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...have serious and compelling reasons why their claim could be considered in the UK can apply. The extent of the risk that they will suffer persecution or serious harm is, therefore, a relatively high bar but justifiably so. As Amendment 131 indicates, where “P” is the applicant, “the strength of P’s family and other ties to the United Kingdom … P’s mental and physical health and...

Public Order Act 1986 (Serious Disruption to the Life of the Community) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Jun 2023)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ..., as when a million of us protested about the Iraq war, and the police will then have to say, “Sorry, that protest is banned because it may cause more than minor disruption”. That is a very low bar. This is an authoritarian law that hands over to the police and the Home Office the power to decide what is a good or a bad protest. It erodes the rule of law because any protest will be...

Procurement Bill [Lords]: New Clause 15 - Record-keeping (13 Jun 2023)

Kirsty Blackman: ...we want to see. We want to see public money, public spending and public contracts going to companies who treat their workers fairly and do not breach workers’ rights. The amendment sets a high bar on exclusion from public procurement as it is specifically about excluding those companies found guilty by an employment tribunal or a court; it not just on the basis of one whistleblower whose...

East West Rail: Bedford to Cambridge — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (13 Jun 2023)

Anthony Browne: ...Harston and Newton? That is not just a road between the villages; they share shops and a school. The people of the village of Newton—which is next to the village I grew up in and has a fantastic pub, the Queen’s Head—would not be able to go directly to Harston. It would be incredibly disruptive to their lives, and the last plans published said that the road would be severed. The...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Public Houses: Codes of Practice (13 Jun 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, whether she has made an assessment of the potential merits of including a Guest Beer Agreement similar to that in the Tied Pubs (Scotland) Act 2021 in the Pubs Code for England and Wales.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Sexual Offences: Trials (13 Jun 2023)

Edward Argar: ...on ineffective trials broken down by offence are not available prior to 2014. The number of ineffective trial volumes significantly increased in 2022; this was primarily due to the Criminal Bar Association action between April and September 2022. It remains our priority to help deliver swifter access to justice for victims and reduce the Crown Court backlog. We are taking a range of...

Members of Parliament: Risk-based Exclusion (12 Jun 2023)

Penny Mordaunt: ..., and that how we work with other agencies is important. In his remarks, he gave very helpful examples of mitigations that could be taken aside from exclusion—barring someone from using the bar, drinking on the Terrace and so forth. As a point of fact, we already do that, and it is staff who do that, although the Serjeant at Arms enforces it. We already take some actions.

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 98ZA (12 Jun 2023)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, as we have just heard, Clauses 29 to 36 place a permanent bar on those who fall within the scheme outlined in Clause 2 from lawfully travelling to the UK or securing settlement or British citizenship through naturalisation or registration; this is subject only to exceptions to comply with international agreements or where there are compelling circumstances. If the Bill fails to...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 93 (12 Jun 2023)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...any prosecutions. Was this because there was no problem in Scotland, or was something happening with regards to investigations? I want the Committee to know that after many years of practice at the Bar, doing some of the most shocking and desperate cases, the experience of chairing that inquiry into modern slavery was revelatory to me in hearing evidence—particularly, of course, from...

Public Order (12 Jun 2023)

Sammy Wilson: ...cumulative effect? Is the protest too noisy? But that is true in every situation where a policeman or policewomen on the ground has to make an operational decision. Do I take this drunk out of the pub, or do I allow him to stay there? Do I talk to him and let him walk away, or do I stick him in the police van? Of course those operational decisions will always be with the police. However,...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 85 (12 Jun 2023)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...has been forced to work in an illegal marijuana farm, behind locked doors where the whole thing could have caught fire and killed him at any moment; a young woman forced by threats to stay in a nail bar; a young man who has been trapped for months in horrendous conditions at a hand car wash; or indeed a young woman who has been forced into sexual exploitation. Currently that police officer...
