Did you mean David less?

Flood Defence Projects: South-west — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (7 Feb 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ..., of course. There had to be muscle to ensure that the then Prime Minister came up with enough money to pay the large sum we wanted for the initial remedial work, but, with determined arm-twisting, David Cameron delivered. At this point, I must pay tribute to the Minister for her efforts in pushing forward the legislation to secure the SRA future funding. We are all very grateful. Now I...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Article 50) (7 Feb 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: ...another independence referendum on the people of Scotland. Our nation is divided enough and another referendum would do irreparable damage to the very fabric of communities across Scotland. The message from a clear majority in September 2014 was that we should remain in the UK, and the SNP should respect that. However, the reality is that the SNP has been given the excuse to seek another...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Stephen Timms: ...of thousands could be delivered would be at an extraordinary economic cost to the UK. I do not believe that any Government would be willing to sign up to that. How have we got ourselves into such a mess? I think the problem was hard-wired in once David Cameron removed his MEPs from the main centre-right bloc in the European Parliament. From that moment on, British influence in the EU...

Scottish Parliament: Paisley for City of Culture 2021 (7 Dec 2016)

George Adam: .... My town and the people I represent mean so much to me, and I want everyone to understand the positive Paisley vision that my fellow buddies and I have for our town. To be frank, I do not want to mess it up. When I was first elected as Paisley’s MSP, I spoke of taking a team Paisley approach to everything that I do. That is why this place has been bombarded with all things Paisley, but...

UK Exit from the European Union — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2016)

Geraint Davies: ...that age have more to lose, in terms of the length of time and all the rest of it. The whole thing was sort of hurtled through and the reason we had this referendum—let us face it—was because David Cameron, the then Prime Minister, thought before the general election, “Well, I’ll offer a referendum to stop UKIP, so the Labour party won’t win”, and we have ended up in a...

Social Fund Funeral Payments — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (14 Sep 2016)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I give thanks to the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson) for bringing this debate to the Chamber and for his kind comments towards me. Members will know that back in 2014, I introduced the Funeral Services Bill. This Bill called for the Government to carry out an overarching review of funeral affordability. At...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (14 Sep 2016)

Stuart McMillan: Can Mr Stewart guarantee that such powers will come to this Parliament, or are the Conservatives just making that assertion because of the mess that they have got the UK into? I hoped that by now we would have a better appreciation of what Brexit will actually mean. From what we heard from Mr Stewart, it is clear that no one has any idea whatever. It is unfortunate that we are no further...

Paris Agreement on Climate Change (7 Sep 2016)

David Davies: ...in the medieval warm period, when they were around the same level as they are now. They were around the same temperature as they are now in the Roman optimum, too. I am probably going to mess this point up, but a Greek philosopher—I think he was called Thracius—was writing about date trees in Greece and how they could be made to grow but could not produce fruit, therefore intimating,...

EU Referendum Rules — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (5 Sep 2016)

Catherine McKinnell: ...my fellow member of the Petitions Committee, the hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford), on introducing this debate, and it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. In June 2010, I made my maiden speech by choice in a debate on European affairs, because I wanted to highlight the importance of EU funding to the north-east. I said in that speech: “As a...

Backbench Business: Summer Adjournment (21 Jul 2016)

Sir David Amess: ...Point (Rebecca Harris) and her lurcher, Milo. There have been too many instances of dogs’ food being poisoned in Southend. Apparently it is because the dogs’ owners are not picking up the mess. I hope that we can turn that round. I am delighted that this country voted on 23 June to leave the European Union, but my goodness, aren’t there some sour grapes? I really hope that the...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...once I heard my noble friend Lady Andrews and the noble Lords, Lord Lisvane and Lord Low of Dalston, I knew there were some sensible people whose band I would be joining. On referenda, I think that David Cameron can be described as the Stan Laurel of British politics. Oliver Hardy would have said, “That’s another fine mess you’ve got us into”. On the Scottish referendum, he...

Report of the Iraq Inquiry (6 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: ...in the two-day debate. It is something I have looked at very carefully, and I have come to the conclusion that this is not the right thing to do. I think we would get ourselves into a legal mess. But the House should clearly debate it, as it will when it considers the report. On the issue of the United States, the right hon. Gentleman calls for an open partnership. I do not believe that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jul 2016)

Sir David Amess: Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating Southend Council, which is once again under the control of the Conservative party, on swiftly acting to sort out the mess left by the previous, hopeless administration? Does he agree that Southend-on-Sea being the alternative city of culture next year will produce a considerable boost to the local economy?

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Radice: ...not want to dwell on the referendum and the campaign itself. We will leave that to the historians—there are some around here. I will just make one or two remarks about it. It is astonishing that David Cameron, who started by advising his party not to bang on about Europe, should have got himself embroiled in an in/out referendum that not only split his party but brought about his own...

EU Referendum and EU Reform (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2016)

Lord Boswell of Aynho: ...drones, so we are keeping up with this. In fact, we took some of that sub-committee’s observations to an international meeting only this week, where we shared them with colleagues. So we will not mess about with that; we will do our wider duties as well as the more particularly political ones. I will turn to two areas that I think have not had quite enough attention in this debate but...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury: ... requirement to improve diversity, and the fact that alongside on-screen targets there are to be workforce targets. These must be delivered. But, while the edifice still stands, this White Paper messes with its foundations and there are major causes for concern. Let us start with the crucial matter of BBC independence. The BBC, let us be reminded, is a public broadcaster, not a state...

Bus Services - Question for Short Debate (11 May 2016)

Lord Greaves: ...those parties, the county grasped the nettle, grasped the opportunities of that new Bill and led the way in providing subsidised services across the county. I pay particular tribute to my colleague David Whipp, whose vision resulted in new town services coming into effect. The county took over the rural and village services, which had previously been cross-subsidised, but the real...

Train Services: Southend (11 May 2016)

Sir David Amess: ...we have a Conservative-controlled council in Southend again—a minority Conservative council with 24 councillors. I know that the House will want to send congratulations to first-time councillor David Burzotta, who is a wonderful tenor, and to David Garston and Mrs Helen Boyd, who won Prittlewell and Blenheim Park wards. Alex Bright, a member of staff of my hon. Friend the Deputy Leader...

Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

David Lammy: ...none. When there is no detail, as this House knows from experience, it is usually because it has been done on the back of an envelope. We will be back here in a few years’ time to tidy up this mess—when I say “we”, I mean the House as a whole. Where is the detail? We need to hear more about what flexibility he actually means. In London there were just 4,881 affordable homes built...

Violence against Women and Girls (Sustainable Development Goals) — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

David Davies: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. I shall mess up my speech a bit now by saying something I was going to say at the end. One of the more respected organisations in the Muslim community in the UK is the Muslim Council of Britain, yet looking at some of the organisations affiliated to it gives rise to a lot of concerns. For example, one affiliated group is the Blackburn Muslim...
