Delegated Legislation: Planning: South Somerset (28 Nov 2018)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...you in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. My hon. Friend is making some very good points. I have been the MP for Bridgwater and West Somerset for 17 years, and I have never seen South Somerset in the mess that it is now in. The Liberals left us a terrible legacy that started with the noble Lord Ashdown and continued up until David Laws, who has now left the House. Does my hon. Friend agree that...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Consultation on administration (20 Nov 2018)

David Drew: ...previous Governments are responsible too. In my previous incarnation, we spent a lot of time on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee trying to sort out how the hell we got into such a mess over the area payments scheme involving Accenture and the computer system that was brought in. It was an unmitigated disaster, because it cost millions more and never did what it was...

Leaving the European Union — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (19 Nov 2018)

David Drew: ...to implement in March. The reality is that they have nothing to implement. They cannot put a border in, and they cannot do checks because they have not taken on additional staff. They admit it is a mess. They have to make decisions, although they are very wary of making political decisions, because they are not politicians. That is the reality. I was in Newry, and I saw it. The problem is...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Brexit) (15 Nov 2018)

.... There is only one person in the chamber indulging in that today. What a nerve for Jackson Carlaw to come here and talk about the importance of finding solutions for Northern Ireland. It was David Mundell and Ruth Davidson who wrote to the Prime Minister to oppose a separate deal for Northern Ireland. All I am asking is that, if Northern Ireland is to get a separate deal for very good...

Scottish Parliament: Safeguarding Research Collaborations and Scientific Excellence (7 Nov 2018)

Iain Gray: ...not know what kind of Brexit they are looking at and Mr Scott pointed out that only 3 per cent of the scientific community feel that they are being listened to in any way at all. Joan McAlpine and David Stewart gave us exact illustrations of damage that has already happened, through the experience of the UHI and a fall in funding. The problem for Mr Mundell is that nobody believes that...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

David Davis: ...Opposition never like to speak about the fact that we have the lowest unemployment in my adult lifetime and the highest employment ever in this country. That is a remarkable achievement given the mess we were given when we came into office. The right hon. Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) intervened on the shadow Minister earlier to say that when Labour came into power in ’97, the debt...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

David Evennett: ...to an end. It is coming to an end and they welcome the fact that—[Interruption.] It is no good those on the shadow Front Bench chuntering. They have no policies and no idea. They got us into this mess. If it was not for the mismanagement of the last Labour Government, we would not have had the years of austerity that we have had. There has been careful fiscal management and the solid...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Baroness Ludford: ...give people the final say, with informed consent. We know that various Brexiters have posited just that scenario on occasions in the past: a first vote in principle and a second vote on the facts: David Davis, John Redwood, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Nigel Farage, even Jeremy Hunt in 2016 suggested a vote on the outcome. It is not just the usual suspects. The British Medical Association and, as the...

Business of the House (18 Oct 2018)

Stephen Doughty: ...to choke off the control of this House over the Brexit decision are unacceptable, as the many thousands of people who will be marching through London on Saturday know all too well. But the Brexit mess has also impacted on important business on the Offensive Weapons Bill. I was pleased to hear her say that the Bill is coming back on Monday. Will she ensure that we have adequate time to...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Marlesford: ...has been behind huge troubles all over the world, but it keeps its face clean. It is really like Sinn Féin was to the IRA. We should be more discriminating over those to whom we grant refuge. When David Cameron proposed to take 20,000 refugees from Syria, some of us asked for priority to be given to Christians and Yazidis, who were particularly subject to persecution. Up to now, the...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Tyrie: ...Lord Garnier, arrived five years earlier. At about that time, I happened to hear a speech by the late Sir Denis Thatcher. He was asked from the floor how the Tory party was going to get out of that mess, to which he replied: “Well, it’s all very straightforward. All we have to do is stick to our values”. He then thought for a bit and said, “But don’t ask me what they are”. In...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (12 Sep 2018)

Afzal Khan: ...reports that the Minister had sight of last week. As she admitted in our last meeting, the Government’s strategy is to kick the boundary issue into the long grass. What has changed? We are in a mess because the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, tried his luck at rigging the electoral system in his party’s favour. The Conservative party since lost its majority in Parliament and now...

Gypsies and Travellers (10 Sep 2018)

Sir David Amess: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South West Bedfordshire (Andrew Selous) on his speech. He was a magnificent Prisons Minister, but I have now seen a new side to him. He did not mess about with weasel words; he told it like it is, and I agreed with everything he said. I support the Irish option, which I dare say my right hon. Friend the Member for Rayleigh and Wickford (Mr...

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Wes Streeting: ..., and I am sure the House will indulge me while I read what he said in the course of judging that case. I will not name the officials, because they do not have the right to reply. The shambolic mess of the Home Office tells us that it is probably not their individual responsibility, and the judge said in the case of both those senior officials that they gave truthful evidence. However, the...

Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Wes Streeting: ...in Westminster Hall shortly we will be describing the situation of international students who are currently victims of the hostile environment. Is it not the case that the Home Office is in this mess because it continues to come forward with cases on the basis of flimsy evidence; it is losing appeals left, right and centre, trying to deny people access to justice; and, perhaps worst of...

Bill Presented: Strengthening the Union (23 Jul 2018)

David Morris: Does the hon. Lady accept that the previous Labour Government put us in this financial mess in the first place? The Labour Government she keeps talking about are not for any or for you.

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (18 Jul 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: My Lords, I echo the warm remarks made about David Ford by my noble friends and the noble Lords, Lord Bew and Lord Kilclooney, for which I thank them. He is a remarkable politician who has served Northern Ireland well over many years. I wish him a long and very happy retirement from Northern Ireland politics. Almost everyone in Northern Ireland voted in support of the Good Friday agreement....

The NHS - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Warner: ...Lord, Lord Darzi, on his excellent speech and his constructive IPPR report. He and I have both had a go at reforming the NHS, and I think we can at least congratulate ourselves on not creating a mess on the scale of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, from which the NHS still suffers. The NHS has been a key part of our welfare state and a great piece of communal risk pooling and social...

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Outsourcing: Value for Money (27 Jun 2018)

David Lidington: ...and Industrial Strategy concluded that the directors, not the Government, were responsible for the fact that Carillion failed and that the Government had made a competent job of clearing up the mess. I refer the hon. Gentleman again to the fact that independent research commissioned by the last Labour Government showed savings to taxpayers of, on average, between 20% and 30% from...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Jim Shannon: Let me express special thanks to the hon. Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess) for setting the scene. He said that he was not the master of the debate, but he was certainly the master of delivery. He told us about all the important issues, with the help of the two learned doctors in Westminster Hall today: the hon. Members for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich (Dr Poulter) and for...
