Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Climate Change Committee Reports (7 Dec 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...UK. The report that he mentions is similar to the report that the committee issued with regard to the UK Government’s climate change plans, which asked for much more detail on delivery. I will give the member a practical example of our efforts to put those delivery mechanisms in place. In October 2021, we published our heat in buildings strategy for the decarbonisation of domestic...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Education System (7 Dec 2022)

Michael Marra: Will the member give way?

Government PPE Contracts (6 Dec 2022)

Angela Rayner: ...VIP access instead of protecting taxpayers’ money. The Prime Minister, fresh from writing off the billions he carelessly lost to covid fraud, is peddling legislation full of loopholes that would give Tory Ministers free rein to do it all over again. The question for the House is whether to act to prevent a repeat. Today, I say to Conservative right hon. and hon. Members: “Learn your...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Update on the Levelling Up Bill (6 Dec 2022)

Michael Gove: ...making, which is sensitive to and reflects local constraints and concerns. Overall this amounts to a rebalancing of the relationship between local councils and the Planning Inspectorate, and will give local communities a greater say in what is built in their neighbourhood. LOCAL PLANS We will end the obligation on local authorities to maintain a rolling five-year supply of land for housing...

Scottish Parliament: COP27 Outcomes (6 Dec 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...that countries have failed to make progress on that agenda and that there has been such a strong pushback on the action that we all know is needed if 1.5° is to remain truly within our reach. I give way to Monica Lennon.

Scottish Parliament: Breast Cancer Care (NHS Tayside) (6 Dec 2022)

Humza Yousaf: No, I am not backing a public inquiry today. Michael Marra, not unusually, is indulging in some element of hyperbole here. To describe the report as “falling apart” because some authors’ names have been redacted is, I think, not an accurate description of what has happened. There are genuine questions. I do not fault Michael Marra or, indeed, others in the slightest for asking questions...

Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (5 Dec 2022)

George Eustice: ...far as to say that it turned out to be perhaps the least controversial Bill that the Government passed in the last Session. The Animal Sentience Committee is about to be set up. It already has, in Michael Seals, a sensible, illustrious chair, and it is ready to go. I think we can avoid the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill becoming a Christmas tree Bill. It is open to the Government to...

Protection for Whistleblowing Bill [HL] - Second Reading (2 Dec 2022)

Lord Berkeley: ...protect other people from the impact of wrongdoing. This is the Bill that they want, because it puts whistleblower issues front and centre and protects those who speak up from retaliation. I will give a few examples. I expect that many noble Lords will have read the Reading the Signals report about the east Kent NHS trust last year and the hundreds of avoidable deaths and injuries to...

Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (2 Dec 2022)

Lord Benyon: ...of the whole House, go to his family and friends. This reminds us of the importance of safeguarding indoor air quality in our homes. My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Housing, Michael Gove, has taken immediate action on the quality of social housing. I will not repeat the detailed arguments made at Second Reading or by my noble friend Lord Harlech in Committee. The...

Church Commissioners: Christmas Celebrations and Services (1 Dec 2022)

Andrew Selous: I thank my hon. Friend for the support he gives to all the faith communities in his constituency. The answer to his question is in the work taking place in his local parishes. I know he will join me in commending, for example, the work of Rev. Jody Stowell at St Michael and All Angels in Harrow Weald, which is offering a warm welcome space and a special service for those who lost loved ones...

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (Engagement with Energy Sector) (1 Dec 2022)

Michael Matheson: Although I cannot give an exact figure, we are aware of instances in which energy suppliers have switched their customers’ accounts to prepayment mode without informing them or obtaining a warrant beforehand. That can have serious implications for customers, particularly those living in vulnerable circumstances. We condemn that kind of practice, as it is likely to exacerbate the challenges...

Blackpool: Levelling Up (29 Nov 2022)

Felicity Buchan: serve under your chairmanship for the first time, Mrs Murray? I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool South (Scott Benton) both on securing the debate and, more importantly, on giving such an impassioned speech. It is clear that he is a tremendous representative for Blackpool, as is our hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool North and Cleveleys (Paul Maynard)—what a...

Ministerial Code (29 Nov 2022)

Chris Bryant: ...requires that the public know all interests held by Ministers: what business interests they have, if any; who had invited them to expensive social occasions, such as movie premieres; what clubs give them free membership; who had paid for trips abroad; what charities they were trustees of; and what meetings they had with lobbyists, trade associations or press barons—anything that might...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 76 - Whistleblowing: economic crime (29 Nov 2022)

Margaret Hodge: ....5 million legal documents held by the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. It basically made its money by creating offshore companies and bank accounts to launder and hide the money. The story was given to a German paper, then 370 journalists got involved in investigating the data, working in 80 countries. Just think what came out of that. Twelve current and former world leaders were...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Colin Beattie: ...Reform) Bill will have on Scotland is, frankly, quite appalling and extremely worrying. In principle, the bill seeks to revoke around 2,400 pieces of legislation, which is incredible. However, in giving evidence to the Constitution, Europe, External Affairs and Culture Committee, the director of law reform at the Law Society of Scotland, Michael Clancy, advised that it could impact up to...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crime: Victims (28 Nov 2022)

Michael Tomlinson: ...the CPS website. The guides clarify the role of the CPS within the wider Criminal Justice System, explain how the CPS makes decisions in cases, what support is available to victims to help them give their best evidence and what their Rights are under the Victims’ Code.

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Margaret Ferrier: ...; Dr Jane Goodall; Peter Egan; Ranulph Fiennes; Charles Dance; and many other individuals and organisations. The campaign has garnered the support of public figures such as Sir David Attenborough, Michael Caine, David Jason, Joanna Lumley and Simon Pegg, to name just a very small selection. As we often hear when we come to this Chamber to debate animal welfare legislation, the UK is a...

backbench business: Infected Blood Inquiry and Compensation Framework — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Chris Stephens: ...pressure that secured the infected blood inquiry in the first place. It was not handed to us; it had to be campaigned for relentlessly—I will continue to use that word—before the inquiry was given. The evidence from it is completely and utterly shocking. Andy Burnham, the former Health Secretary, called the scandal “a colossal failure”, saying in his evidence that there “may even...

Scottish Parliament: National Drugs Mission (24 Nov 2022)

Michael Marra: ...Council is not doing enough, NHS Tayside is not doing enough and the Scottish Government is not doing enough. To be frank, it would be of far more use if the minister, in her closing speech, could give us a proper update on those health boards that are, like NHS Tayside, under ministerial direction. What are the names of the single figures of people who are now in place and are responsible...
