Future of the National Health Service — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (22 Sep 2021)

Rachael Maskell: ...East (Richard Burgon) for opening the debate with so many facts that we need to reflect on. From before our first breath, to our very last, since 5 July 1948, the NHS has worked day and night to give us hope. The principle was that, no matter who we were—duke or dustman, as Bevan said—we knew that, when the hands of the NHS reached out to us, it neither judged nor differentiated. It...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Political Appointments Bill: Second Stage (21 Sep 2021)

Jim Wells: ...I am sure that there were scores of able Sinn Féin supporters who could have easily been appointed as her spad. I am sure that there were plenty out there. I do not know them, but I am sure that, given the education system in west Belfast, there is bound to have been someone who was suitable. What did it do, however? It appointed Mary McArdle, knowing full well that that would rake up the...

Project Gigabit (21 Sep 2021)

Tim Farron: ...connected place in Cumbria—I tell you, Dame Angela, that is saying something—now have world-class connections, thanks to B4RN and to Ministers in the past who listened. Today’s debate will give us an insight, if the Minister will forgive me for saying so, into whether she will be one who listens. Her predecessor was a very nice man, but on this he did not listen. He visited...

Scottish Parliament: Net Zero Nation (21 Sep 2021)

Michael Matheson: ...emphasises the need to decarbonise domestic premises. Does he recognise that one of the most effective ways of decarbonising domestic heating is the use of hydrogen in the natural gas network? Given that his party at Westminster controls the decision making about when that will be possible, will he advise the Parliament as to when the UK Government will give consent to decarbonising the...

Government: Leadership Training - Motion to Take Note (16 Sep 2021)

Lord Bilimoria: ...of leadership is not in the good times but in adversity—and, wow, have we had the chance to learn about leadership from adversity. The report quotes Dame Kate Bingham: “The instruction I was given by the Prime Minister was to save lives as soon as possible, so we had a very clear goal.” And she did it, thanks to that empowerment. In eight months, she created what we have had: one of...

Criminal Justice System: Families Bereaved by Public Disasters (16 Sep 2021)

Maria Eagle: ...relating to Hillsborough to be published to facilitate transparency. The Hillsborough independent panel was established with the powers of a data controller only because of insight from Lord Michael Wills, who was then in charge of freedom of information at the Ministry of Justice. Only because of that formulation was the truth about what happened on that terrible day finally able to be...

Brexit: Opportunities (16 Sep 2021)

Michael Ellis: ...limited genuine democratic scrutiny. This Government were elected to get Brexit done and to change this situation, and that is exactly what we will do. Much has already been changed of course but, given the extent of EU influence over nearly half a century, the task is a mammoth one. To begin it, we asked my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan...

Scottish Parliament: Fairer and More Equal Society (16 Sep 2021)

Michael Marra: Thank you, Presiding Officer. That will give me the opportunity to follow on from what my Dundee colleague Joe FitzPatrick has said— which I will do later. Only this weekend, during the online SNP conference, the First Minister took a short break from setting out conspiracy theories to tell us that Scotland can be Denmark, Ireland, Austria, Norway or Finland. Personally, I quite like being...

Scottish Parliament: North Sea Oil and Gas (15 Sep 2021)

Michelle Thomson: When I read the motion I was struck by how simple the Tories perceived this issue to be, compared with the SNP amendment that was lodged by Michael Matheson. I have spoken previously about the complexity of climate change and the ambitious policy responses that are required. Only last week I spoke about setting measurable net zero ambitions for public sector pensions, and I was pleased to see...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Second Reading (14 Sep 2021)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...growing problem. The number is increasing year on year. The great majority are not for further offending but rather for often comparatively minor non-compliance with release conditions, such as not giving their correct or up-to-date address—and they do not always find that easy—or for mental health reasons. All these IPP prisoners, whether never yet released or recalled, have to...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...and brought forward by the Government. The reason we are here this evening is that surface-water flooding is a comparatively recent phenomenon. It was first identified by an East Yorkshireman, Sir Michael Pitt, in the context of his Pitt review in 2007. He concluded, very simply, that the Government should end the automatic right to connect to new developments. It is inappropriate for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Death of Pat Hume (13 Sep 2021)

Andrew Muir: ...That brought real brightness and clarity to her devotion to John through thick and thin and to her complete and undivided focus on achieving peace for this country. Following her passing, President Michael D Higgins described Pat's life as: "one of total commitment to community" and "to the possibilities of peace". The greatest thing we can all do is refocus on that and participate in and...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Licences (North Sea) (9 Sep 2021)

Michael Matheson: ...to decarbonise the sector. That is why I hope that all those members of the Scottish Parliament from the north-east will get behind the Acorn project and call on the UK Government to take action, give it approval and allow it to go ahead.

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Wayne David: ...in the House. I wish to pay tribute to the armed forces, some from my constituency, many of whom lost their life or suffered life-changing injuries. In particular, I refer to Sergeant-Major Michael Williams of my home village of Bedwas, who lost his life in combat with the Taliban. We are proud of them all. There is, I believe, a widespread consensus emerging in the House that it was a...

Covid-19 (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2021)

Baroness Brinton: ...happen straightaway, but, having read the Government’s response, I am not convinced it will happen soon. Like many others, I find it quite extraordinary that no Minister found it appropriate to give evidence. Even today, in an earlier Statement, the Health Minister said that the best time for reflecting was after the pandemic. We have learned since the publication of this report last...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Greg Smith: ...plans for a new prison adjacent to HMP Spring Hill and HMP Grendon. I know how hard local residents, our parish councils and Buckinghamshire councillors, such as Angela Macpherson, Frank Mahon and Michael Rand, have worked to make the case against it at consultation stage. I pay particular thanks to Rod Baker, whose detailed analysis and presentations on why these proposals are so wrong...

Tackling Knife Crime — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (20 Jul 2021)

Bill Esterson: ...for Luton North (Sarah Owen) on an excellent introduction. I feel for her constituents. She told a heartbreaking story about her 16-year-old constituent who was murdered. I am afraid that I shall give some examples of very similar stories from my constituency. In Sefton and across the Liverpool City Region, we have very good practice in the prevention of violent crime, including knife...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 47 (15 Jul 2021)

Lord Baker of Dorking: My Lords, I shall speak to the amendment that my noble friend Lord Willetts has just spoken to and the comments made by the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, concerning T-levels. This gives us an opportunity to discuss T-levels, probably for the first time. The Bill gives the Institute for Apprenticeships far too great a power in that it can decide, without any constraints, to abolish a...

Early Years Foundation Stage (Miscellaneous Amendments) and Childcare Fees (Amendment) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (13 Jul 2021)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...Lords, I go further and say that never is the right time to introduce these absurd baseline tests for four year-olds. They should be allowed to wither on the vine. But this is all on a par with Michael Gove’s introduction of rigid exam systems, built on by Nick Gibb’s rote learning and testing, rather than the development of skills that would be useful to pupils in later lives and...

Water Safety — [David Mundell in the Chair] (12 Jul 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...there are so many dangers in the water that children are just not aware of. Something that Beckie Ramsay said about this really struck me. She said that by having school swimming lessons, perhaps giving children a curiosity about the water but neglecting the wider safety aspects, we could be teaching children just enough to get them killed. Water safety is about having the knowledge to...
