Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health and Social Care Bill: Consideration Stage (16 Nov 2021)

Colin McGrath: ...of draft legislation. The need for it dates back to the days of direct rule, when we saw 18 health trusts cut down to five plus the Ambulance Service. However, when the Minister's predecessor, Michael McGimpsey, assumed the position in late 2007, the question turned very much to the role and future of local commissioning groups. We seem to have come full circle with the issue of local...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 70 - Review of subsidy decisions (16 Nov 2021)

Michael Tomlinson: The Minister is not giving way. The hon. Lady is making a speech.

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Nov 2021)

Julia Pyke: We believe that the regulated asset base model—David and Michael will want to comment—is designed to come into place at financial close. The question of how nuclear projects get from where they are now—in the case of Sizewell the project is very mature, with a design and a team, and we have applied for consents; projects that are further behind obviously have a lot further...

Water Companies: Sewage Discharge — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (15 Nov 2021)

Tonia Antoniazzi: I noted in a recent Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Question Time, this a UK-wide issue. What work is the Minister doing alongside the devolved Administrations, and what commitment can she give to do so, because these waterways, whether in England, Wales or Scotland, are all intertwined and all end up somewhere? If sewage goes into our rivers and waterways, it will ultimately make...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 208A (15 Nov 2021)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...more than 1,300—a steadily increasing number—have been recalled after release, mostly not for reoffending but rather for some often comparatively minor breach of licence conditions, such as not giving their current address. This is very often because they do not have a satisfactory one. In recent years, I have been to see many a Lord Chancellor about this growing injustice. All have...

David Fuller Case - Statement (9 Nov 2021)

Viscount Stansgate: My Lords, the Minister has quite correctly said that Sir Jonathan Michael has great experience of the NHS. Sadly, it is in the nature of this shocking case that his inquiry will have to range more widely than the NHS. Will the Minister therefore suggest to Sir Jonathan that he consults the National Association of Funeral Directors? It has a lot of experience, through the guidance it has...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 10 (9 Nov 2021)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I put my name to this amendment because it is crucial that the arrangements that are made under Clause 7 are designed to give accurate and complete advice and assistance. The people who are seeking that advice and assistance are of course coming with at least a rather imperfect knowledge of the systems and the professions which they are seeking to engage with, and it is crucial that...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 3 (9 Nov 2021)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: other cases, I am one of four signatories, with the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope. That makes for all-party support for the amendments, most of which are the brainchild of our mutual friend Michael Clancy of the Law Society of Scotland, for whom we have to give many thanks and wish him well, at the moment particularly. I was thinking that not only is it an all-party amendment, but...

Racism in Cricket (9 Nov 2021)

Jo Stevens: ...Minister on that. Yesterday, Lord Patel took the first steps to begin to right these wrongs. The next step must be that the rest of the board leave their posts. Their role in this shameful fiasco gives them no right to continue to hold positions of power in the club. I, too, hope that the EHRC will formally investigate what has occurred. Racism has no place in cricket or any other sport,...

Scottish Parliament: Young Persons Guarantee and National Training Transition Fund (9 Nov 2021)

Pauline McNeill: That is what I will go on to talk about. In principle, the young persons guarantee is the right response. However, as Michael Marra—I think—pointed out earlier, the issue is the approach that we take and its scale. I will address that in some detail, because I am trying to be constructive. I went through the website in some detail, as if I was a young person looking at it and I found it...

HGV Driving Licences (8 Nov 2021)

Karin Smyth: ...Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman), the hon. Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones) who is in his place, and the right hon. and learned Member for Northampton North (Michael Ellis). They each showed a desire to fix an endemic problem around trailer safety and a genuine commitment to deliver on a promise to one particular family in my constituency. I first met...

Committee on Standards: Decision of the House (8 Nov 2021)

Peter Bottomley: being a Member of Parliament. One example I often use is Peter Thurnham, who when made redundant set up his own business and became a successful engineering business owner. Should he have had to give that up? Should Michael Foot have given up his writing or his royalties when he was here? I think we should take great care about that. I believe that any Member of Parliament who declares...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 2 - Exclusion of review of Upper Tribunal’s permission-to-appeal decisions (4 Nov 2021)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the evidence of the applicant’s diaspora activities in the UK and whether, in light of the evidence and the arguable change in conditions in Sri Lanka since 2013 when the upper tribunal had given country guidance, he would be at risk on return. The upper tribunal found that the first-tier tribunal had made an error of law and decided to hear the case to give new guidance on risk on...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 133 (3 Nov 2021)

the Bishop of London: ..., Irish Travellers and Roma”. It is in that vein that I feel the need to address the Committee today, because I fear we are in danger of making the situation still worse. It is 10 years since Michael Hargreaves and Matthew Brindley wrote in Planning for Gypsies and Travellers, a publication by the Irish Traveller movement, that “There are no stopping places, few transit sites, no...

Committee on Standards (3 Nov 2021)

Michael Fabricant: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Scottish Parliament: Early Learning and Childcare (3 Nov 2021)

Michael Marra: ...understand who and why. We must recognise that some families might choose not to avail themselves of provision. Bare statistics such as percentages of eligibility and of uptake of provision do not give us the nuance that we require in order to see whether we are actually meeting the generally shared aspirations for the policy. Part of the problem—and a thorn in the side in relation to...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (2 Nov 2021)

Michael Clancy: We do take the view that the provisions of clause 2 engage legislative consent, otherwise known as the Sewel convention, which would require the consent of the Scottish Parliament. The reason for that is a piece of law that is a bit complicated and a bit tricky. Nevertheless, you began by identifying that judicial review of administrative action is part of the definition of...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2021)

Michael Gove: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Land Use Framework - Motion to Take Note (28 Oct 2021)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...need for more locally sourced fruit and vegetables. I did not see that as the noble Lord, Lord Deben, described it—a big hand coming down on the farmers—but as part of the incentives that we give for different developments in agriculture for the future. We have an incentive-based scheme at the moment. The Environment Bill also encourages landowners to sign up to long-term conservation...

The Coroner Service — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (28 Oct 2021)

Maria Eagle: ...for Bromley and Chislehurst said he is a can-do Minister, and I hope he is a will-do Minister too. The report into the coroner service is not only knowledgeable and good—I am bound to think that, given that I am a member of the Justice Committee, which produced it. It also identifies issues that have come to light not just over the last couple of years but, as the hon. Member for Bromley...
