Did you mean David less?

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...

Trade Union Bill - Report (2nd Day) (19 Apr 2016)

Baroness Donaghy: ...Theatre would have been embarrassed. I understand that the Select Committee, under the excellent chairmanship of the noble Lord, Lord Burns, was very impressed by the current Certification Officer, David Cockburn. He embodies all that is good about public service. The fact that there was no headline news does not mean that a problem was buried; it means that the role was performed in an...

High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill - Second Reading (14 Apr 2016)

Lord Prescott: .... In this period of austerity, I wonder whether the second part of this investment might be called into question. Will we be told that it cannot be completed beyond Birmingham? Stand by for the message; we will see what will happen. But I believe in the European fast trains—there is no doubt about that—and I welcome David Higgins’s report. He has taken a more realistic look at the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Mar 2016)

David Cameron: ...by two thirds since we became the Government. From Labour, all we have had is more proposals for more spending, more welfare, more taxes and more debt—all the things that got us into the biggest mess with the biggest black hole in the first place.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (22 Mar 2016)

David Anderson: ...stealth cuts on the NHS and local government, with changes to employer pension contributions; and, to cap it all, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions giving in after six years. This latest mess only builds on the Chancellor’s catalogue of failure. He is still nowhere near to eliminating the deficit, despite his plans to have done so two years ago. In February, we had the lowest...

Budget Changes (21 Mar 2016)

David Gauke: ...have turned round the economy. We are in a position to be growing strongly compared with our international competitors, and we are bringing the public finances under control, having inherited the mess that would did in 2010.

European Union Referendum (Date of Referendum etc.) Regulations 2016 — Motion to Approve (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...of my noble friends Lords Radice and Mandelson asking me to support the Prime Minister. I do support the Prime Minister in one sense: I am going to urge people to vote to remain. However, David Cameron has made an awful mess of referenda. He has shown no skill, no judgment, and no ability to deal with them. Now we are ending up with a lame duck Prime Minister—because that is what he...

Scotland Bill - Report (2nd Day) (29 Feb 2016)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ..., the deal between the Scottish and UK Ministers was struck amid Tory fears that sticking with the Treasury offer that could have left Scotland £3 billion worse off over a decade would have hurt David Cameron’s chances of winning the June EU referendum”. It strikes me as extraordinary that something as important as the future financing arrangements for the whole of the United Kingdom...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill [Lords]: Clause 30 - Disposal of Crown’s shares in UK Green Investment Bank company (23 Feb 2016)

Kevin Brennan: Perhaps I might seek your guidance, Sir David, because we have ranged quite widely and I was going to make some remarks in the clause stand part debate that I could incorporate into our discussion of the amendment if you thought that was appropriate. You seem to be nodding, so I will do that and hope that I will not be ruled out of order if I range a little more widely. This will save us the...

Recall of MPs Act 2015 (Recall Petition) Regulations 2016: Motion to Approve (11 Feb 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...today. At the time, the Minister in the other place described the regulations as “extremely long and detailed”. Indeed, I doubt very much whether, other than my honourable colleague Wayne David, anyone else in that House knows that this is now to be a secret ballot rather than an open petition. That is therefore what lies behind my amendment. However, we have some queries with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jan 2016)

David Cameron: ...people filling in their tax returns will pay for it. Why is it that the right hon. Gentleman always wants to see more welfare, higher taxes and more borrowing—all the things that got us into the mess in the first place?

[Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] — Access to Justice: Vulnerable People (19 Jan 2016)

Karl Turner: ...the House, I was a member of Wilberforce barristers’ chambers in Hull. I was a junior member of the Bar and certainly not earning “fat cat” moneys, as the hon. Member for Warrington South (David Mowat) might want to believe. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) on securing this important and timely debate. It could not have come at a better time,...

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

David Anderson: ...the back of the settee. That was going to be the way forward. With one leap, he was free. But this morning he is all over the media telling us, “Whoa, hang on. You’ve got it wrong. We’re in a mess again. We’ve got to put the brake on again. People have to realise that we are still facing lots of austerity.” To give them credit, Government Members who have spoken today have...

Scottish Parliament: Women and Social Security (26 Nov 2015)

Christina McKelvie: .... Women will be dependent on the male breadwinner for the money to run the house, and if he has other ideas about how to spend that money, it will be the partners who have to try and sweep up the mess of debt, lack of food and probably a housing crisis. CAS evidence to the committee emphasised that women use social services more than men do. The reasons are straightforward: they tend to be...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: HMRC Office Closures (24 Nov 2015)

Sir David Amess: ...impressed with everything she saw. I absolutely support and accept the overall strategy. Our Treasury team is doing a wonderful job in sorting out the public finances in the light of the terrible mess we were left with in 2010. However, I was born in Stratford and I hate to be in the position of pitting one area against another. The hon. Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown) is a splendid...

Backbench Business: Tax Credits (29 Oct 2015)

Liz McInnes: ...would not have cut tax credits to some of the poorest families in Britain in the first place, but I believe that the right hon. Gentleman now has some wriggle room and that he can put right the mess he has created for Britain’s families. The Child Poverty Action Group believes that the proposed changes to tax credits will damage work incentives and increase child poverty. I think we have...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Cancer Drugs (20 Oct 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...irony is that some of the drugs that were available under the Cancer Drugs Fund were the subject of clinical trials. The hon. Members for Strangford and for the hon. Member for Upper Bann (David Simpson) referred to the centre at Queen’s. What I am probably most proud of in my political contribution is that as Deputy First Minister I insisted on securing funding for the regional cancer...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Union Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Oct 2015)

David Sidebottom: The message that we get loud and clear from passengers whenever there is any disruption, whether it be industrial action, bad weather, or engineering works is, “Get me out of the mess that you are putting me into. Give me the options, give me the information on which I can make choices. When I get up in the morning, is my train going to run, because there are three inches...

Bill Presented — National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (14 Jul 2015)

David Anderson: ..., the vulnerable, the ill, the young, the women and the disabled people of this country struggle to make ends meet in desperate times. They are the people the Tories are making pay for the economic mess that their friends in the City, the banks and the hedge funds got us into. At the same time, the Tories are attacking the millions of public sector workers in this country who take care of...
