Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Green Investment Bank (24 Oct 2013)

David Mowat: I thank the Secretary of State. It is impressive how quickly the bank has got up and running. However, the scope envisaged during the Committee stage of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, and indeed in the Bill’s green purpose, included low-carbon industries such as the nuclear supply chain.

Caste: Equality Act 2010 — Question (2 Feb 2015)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: My Lords, I recognise the frustration around the Chamber over this matter.

Iain Wright: I am on my first paragraph, so let me come on to that later. I have plenty of time and opportunity to do so. I think that everyone was shocked when they saw this clause. An Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which is apparently charged with boosting this country’s competitiveness and supposedly enables businesses to be freed from burdensome and unnecessary regulation, should not contain...

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: The Government are seeking to repeal Section 138 of the Equality Act 2010 through the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill currently before Parliament.

Neil Carmichael: Absolutely not. We do not want to “reduce workers’ rights”, as the hon. Gentleman puts it, but we do want to ensure that more people can be employed. That is being made possible by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which is probably an Act by now.
