Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

David Hanson: ...a mechanism to give financial support to them to buy the freehold would be an extremely good contribution. I welcome what the Minister has done so far. I know that we are in a pickle and a mess, although in a way I am relieved to hear that the problem affects not just people in Delyn and north Wales, but many others. There are real challenges for the people who are in this mess, and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court System: Modernisation (5 Dec 2017)

David Lidington: I apologise to you, Mr Speaker, if there was a mess-up in communications with your office. In response to my hon. Friend, as we test and pilot the online court proposals it is important to ensure that the process is stripped of legal jargon so that our constituents—men and women who may have no particular knowledge or experience of the technicalities of law—are able easily to understand,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Hywel Williams: ...I have no responsibility at all for things Welsh.” Apparently he was wrong, because although health was devolved, nurses’ pay was not. That is just a small example of the complications to which messing around with the reserved-powers model might lead. The reserved-powers approach was endorsed by the UK Government following the long-drawn-out St David’s day process, on the grounds...

Migration Policy and the Economy — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (29 Nov 2017)

David Linden: Given the mess that the United Kingdom Government are currently in regarding the situation in Ireland, I am not sure that a Member from the governing party lecturing us on borders necessarily suggests the right frame of mind at the moment. The calls for immigration to be devolved do not necessarily come from the SNP, although we support them; they come from civic Scotland. Let me quote...

Backbench Business: Dr Elsie Inglis and Women’s Contribution to World War One — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2017)

Dan Jarvis: ...know it. Mary lived in Glasgow, and politics meant as little to her as it does to some of the people most disillusioned with our politics today, but in 1914 something changed. Mary’s husband, David, went to fight on the frontline and she was left alone at home with their two young boys. With so many men away on the frontline, the city’s private landlords sensed an opportunity and...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Emily Thornberry: ...all the jokes have worn just a bit thin of late. I am nevertheless glad that the Foreign Secretary is leading today’s debate. Back in March he acknowledged how rare that was, because never under David Cameron’s Government did a Foreign Secretary lead a Budget debate. In the first two Budgets under the new Prime Minister and Chancellor, however, the Foreign Secretary has been given that...

Air Force (Constitution) Act 1917 — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 Nov 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: ...aspect of the Air Force came into being. My hon. Friend and others spoke about the huge loss and sacrifice that was made, and about the stoicism of individual pilots. In some cases, they paid their mess bills before they left, not knowing whether they would return the next night. Because of their commitment to duty, crews were unable to grieve and appreciate the loss of their friends until...

Brexit: UK-EU Movement of People (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (17 Jul 2017)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...only to look at today’s newspapers to see the shambles the Government are in: Philip Hammond complaining about being briefed against and being outed for his ridiculous comments; Boris Johnson and David Davis fighting over who will succeed the Prime Minister, who has been fatally wounded by the appalling general election she ran—it is a matter of when she steps down in this Parliament,...

Local Government Finance - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Lord Smith of Leigh: ...pilots are meant to teach us things, but how can we learn if we do not know when that will happen? We need to see what we can get from those. The other issue around business rates is of course the mess the Government got into of their own making on valuations. I remember arguing with the Government—it always seemed to be at 11 pm—along with my noble friend Lord McKenzie of Luton and...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Anna Soubry: ...right hon. Members on both sides of the House care about something and see why it should be done, political will is required to make it happen. I pay handsome tribute to the Prime Minister for not messing about. I know that she will have been supported by wise words from the Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for Ludlow (Mr Dunne), and from the Secretary of State, who made the case to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: ...one great disappointment, and I am sure the Minister involved will know exactly what I am referring to; there has been no commitment at all to receiving the 20,000 Syrian refugees as promised by David Cameron. It is not there in the Queen’s Speech. Nor is there a commitment to increase the number of unaccompanied child refugees. When you think that in Europe there are still about 88,000...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, looking back to 22 February 2016—the day that David Cameron announced the referendum—Britain was flying. We were the fastest-growing economy in the western world. We were the envy of Europe. Four months later, on 23 June, we had the 52:48 referendum result. Our world has changed since then. Look at the turmoil we are in a year later. Far from flying and being the envy of...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Tim Farron: ...I have got the honesty to admit it publicly. Britain, for all its immense and glorious heritage, its potentially wonderful future, and all its tremendous values, is nevertheless a country in a mess. It is essentially a mess caused by two choices made by two Conservative Prime Ministers who put their party before their country. First, David Cameron called a referendum on Europe for no...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Civic Trust (50th Anniversary) (20 Jun 2017)

Linda Fabiani: ...rooms in Edinburgh. The trust was instrumental in ensuring that New Lanark was preserved for posterity and for all of us to enjoy. When people talk about New Lanark, they talk about the legacy of David Dale and Robert Owen and about the wonderful social initiatives that were taken at that time and were exported around the world. We should be very proud of it, but we must ask ourselves...

Scottish Parliament: Child Tax Credit Cuts (25 Apr 2017)

Gillian Martin: ..., to save the UK Government £1 billion per year. How much do tax evasion and tax avoidance cost the UK a year? The answer is £34 billion. Adam Tomkins talked about the so-called little note that David Cameron reckoned that the Tories found in the Treasury that said that there was no money left. On the back of that note, did it say “Get it from the vulnerable and the poorest in...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Tim Farron: This is an appropriate time to be called. I noticed a tweet earlier from David Cameron, the former Prime Minister, whom I am sure we all remember fondly, welcoming the Prime Minister’s decision to call an early election. Given that in one sense the country is in this mess because in calling the referendum David Cameron put party before country, it is hardly surprising that the current...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Reports on Implications for Scotland) (15 Mar 2017)

Tavish Scott: ...European speech in his first five minutes. He set out exactly what Labour has been missing. If I may say so, if Jeremy Corbyn had been making that kind of contribution, we would not be quite in the mess that we are, given his complete inability to make a speech in favour of the European Union. I genuinely thank Daniel Johnson for saying exactly what should have been coming from Labour’s...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Owen: ...of a policy of coming out of the EU. That must be our objective. It is certainly not our objective to “rise up”. I hope nobody else goes to Bloomberg to make speeches. The reason we are in this mess is the speech by the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, and now we have another past Prime Minister going to Bloomberg to tell the people to “rise up”. What we need is unity, the...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...continued membership of the European common aviation area is also not helpful to an airport-based economy, and it is certainly not helped by a slowdown in growth. Of course, responsibility for this mess, which is what I believe it is, rests squarely with David Cameron. He gambled that a referendum would heal the split in his party but has ended up splitting the country. History will...

Education Funding: Southend (21 Feb 2017)

Sir David Amess: ...at the end of half an hour. Let there be no doubt: if the proposed changes go ahead I shall vote against the measure needed to bring them in—and we have a majority of only 11. I am not going to mess about on the issue. In the years since I became an MP I have listened to so many rebrandings of schools that I am sick to death of hearing what we are to call them—academies,...
