Income tax (charge) (17 Mar 2020)

Peter Dowd: ...learning had fallen by a quarter since 2009-10 in real terms. That is according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies. The Budget was disappointing in relation to climate action. The environmental justice commission set up by the Institute for Public Policy Research said that £33 billion of green investment was needed a year to get to the Government’s weak target of net zero emissions by...

International Women’s Day (5 Mar 2020)

Apsana Begum: ...and renewal plans. I suppose you could say, “Once a firefighter, always a firefighter”. I wish him well in his retirement. My other east end predecessors include Labour party giants such as George Lansbury. As we debate International Women’s Day, the origins of which are rooted in working-class history—it honours the 1908 garment workers’ strike in America—I want to pay tribute...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Ministry of Justice: Flags (5 Mar 2020)

Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill: Murder or manslaughter: prisoner's non-disclosure of information (3 Mar 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: ...Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard) for leading the community campaign to incorporate the offences regarding indecent images in this Bill. This campaign followed the conviction of Vanessa George, who refused to disclose the identities of the children she abused. There can be few things worse than learning of the murder of a close relative and having to endure the living hell of...

Fisheries Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (2 Mar 2020)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: ...his legal confidence—I say that in a “Yes Minister” context—because I am not certain that the legal confidence is supported by all involved in the industry. There is a famous case where Justice Cranston suggested that there was a type of property right attributed to a fixed quota allocation and that owners would probably need to be given in the region of seven years’ notice of...

Welsh Affairs (27 Feb 2020)

Wendy Chamberlain: ...First Minister. We need to examine the powers that have and have not been devolved to the Welsh Government and whether the current arrangements deliver the best outcomes for the people of Wales. Justice is not currently devolved in Wales, unlike in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and the Commission on Justice in Wales, which was set up by Carwyn Jones when he was First Minister, was...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (25 Feb 2020)

John Martin McDonnell: ...in the House about this, therefore. Recent years have seen secret sweetheart deals between HMRC and tech giants, and they have only been made public as a result of the tireless work of tax justice campaigners. The Government have trumpeted their digital services tax. It was trumpeted before the election, but that tax has been widely criticised. It is aimed only at digitalised business...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Bureau Motions (25 Feb 2020)

Kenneth Macintosh: ...to replace Annie Wells as a member of the Equalities and Human Rights Committee; Maurice Golden be appointed to replace Oliver Mundell as a member of the Equalities and Human Rights Committee; George Adam be appointed to replace Gordon MacDonald as a member of the Finance Committee; Donald Cameron be appointed to replace Adam Tomkins as a member of the Finance Committee; Alasdair Allan be...

Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill (11 Feb 2020)

Chris Philp: ...wonderful young women, Helen McCourt, 32 years ago at the age of just 22, in the prime of her life with everything to look forward to; and the terrible abuse committed by a nursery teacher, Vanessa George, who abused the trust that was placed in her by parents of tiny children. Yet from these tragic cases, today’s debate shows some good can come. I pay particular tribute to Marie...

Gene Editing - Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness Bakewell: ..., the concern of the HFEA, which requires all such matters to be done under licence. The August 2017 issue of Nature first reported on the American use of gene editing in humans. In response, George Annas, director of the Center for Health Law, Ethics and Human Rights at Boston University School of Public Health declared that “the scientists are out of control.” What makes a big...

Planning System: Gypsies and Travellers — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Jan 2020)

Zarah Sultana: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. I am a new Member and this is my first Westminster Hall debate, so I came this morning with a little trepidation. I have listened with alarm at what the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) and other Conservative Members have said. Gypsies and Traveller communities are not a problem that needs to be tackled, nor should...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Knife Crime: Knife Crime (24 Jan 2020)

Jennette Arnold: ...Government over the last three and a half years. That means, for example, working with schools to reduce exclusions. That means, for example, making sure there is investment in policing and swifter justice. That means, for example, trying to address the issue of adverse childhood experiences. That means working not just with just faith communities but with civic society as well, to make...

A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Zarah Sultana: ...for people in need of a place to call home. I was just 14 when the global financial crisis struck and reckless bankers sent the economy into free fall. I was still a teenager when David Cameron and George Osborne began to implement their austerity agenda. Now, I know that the convention for maiden speeches is to avoid saying anything that Members opposite will find very disagreeable, but I...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...of how these trade-offs will be struck—between fishery concessions and the interests of our financial services sector; between acceptance of some continuing role for the European Court of Justice and insistence on the purity of UK legal sovereignty. Any democratic Government need to be held to account not just once every five years but as they continue to make policy month by month. That...

Business of the House (9 Jan 2020)

Gareth Johnson: The recent treatment of the 19-year-old British national in Ayia Napa and the failures of the judicial process follow on from the failure of the judicial system in Cyprus to bring to justice the killers of my constituent George Low, who was murdered in the same town in 2016. Can we please have a debate on the safety of British subjects visiting Cyprus on holiday and whether any further...

Scottish Parliament: Art in Action Campaign (5 Dec 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: ..., as well as the always-inspiring Glasgow Sculpture Studios. Stuart McMillan talked about RIG Arts and the tobacco warehouse in Greenock. I was very pleased to hear about the opportunity for a George Wyllie exhibition space at the proposed new terminal. I am very supportive of many of the key messages of the art in action campaign. The campaign seeks to highlight the role that art plays in...

Scottish Parliament: Purple Light-up Campaign (3 Dec 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: ...in 1969, Brian was already in situ, working as a programmer. He had been totally blind since an accident he had at about the age of 12. I was ensconced in a room in a rather cold building in George Street, Edinburgh, learning how to do computer programming. A guy came in—he was always silent—went across the room, sat down at a card punch machine, punched away at his programmes, took...

Scottish Parliament: Nuclear Test Veterans (7 Nov 2019)

George Adam: ...Christmas Island. The irony is not lost on me that we are debating the subject in the week before remembrance Sunday. I never set out to have the debate this week; it is funny how fate makes up for justice in many ways, and balances it. This week, we are remembering people who defended our nation in various conflicts and gave their lives. However, British nuclear test veterans have been...

Retail Crime Prevention — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Nov 2019)

Ruth George: ..., Erdington (Jack Dromey) described the case of Barry, who I know; when he spoke with my hon. Friend at the USDAW conference, it was an incredibly moving experience. The trouble is that our justice system is letting these people down. It is not just that police numbers are decreasing and that the response to incidents is not improving: by the time that I left the union, Barry, who I have...
