Food, Poverty, Health and the Environment Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (10 Jun 2021)

Lord Rooker: ...that of the agency in England, because it retains the original remit of food safety, as well as nutrition and health. I too was disappointed on reading the Government’s response to the report, given its flat refusal to consider some poverty issues and a constant refrain of “waiting for Dimbleby”. There are some points I refuse to believe or take seriously. Paragraph 129 states:...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (9 Jun 2021)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...welcome the provisions regarding the assistance centre; I speak on my own behalf, but I know, as does the noble Baroness, that the Law Society of Scotland welcomes it. Like her, I am grateful to Michael Clancy and his colleagues from the Law Society of Scotland for their help on these amendments. The centre will provide advice and assistance regarding entry requirements—we will come to...

Investing in Children and Young People (9 Jun 2021)

Mary Foy: ...because to me it seems like “build back cheaper”? Fortunately Labour has offered an alternative plan: one that invests in children’s education, nourishes their extra-curricular interests, and gives every child the mental health support they need. Not only does this plan place children at the heart of the recovery—it does so without scapegoating our incredible school staff, as the...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus Acts Report (9 Jun 2021)

John Swinney: This is my first statement to Parliament to accompany the publication of a Scottish Government report on the coronavirus acts. I pay tribute to Michael Russell, who not only led the two Scottish coronavirus bills through Parliament last year but subsequently oversaw the publication of six reports on operation of the acts. Today sees the publication of the seventh report on the coronavirus...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 54 - Imposing conditions on public processions (8 Jun 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: ...serious disruption to the activities of an organisation or the life of the community, the right hon. Member made another important point, saying: “It is tempting when Home Secretary to think that giving powers to the Home Secretary is very reasonable, because we all think we are reasonable, but future Home Secretaries may not be so reasonable.”—[Official Report, 15 March 2021; Vol....

Environment Bill - Second Reading (7 Jun 2021)

Lord Rooker: ...as an executive agency of MAFF. The threat of infraction—a fine on the UK Government—has gone; we are, therefore, left with a gap. Anyone who disputes that should look at the opinion piece by Michael Gove published on 13 November 2017 when he was the Defra Secretary of State. This is an authored article, on GOV.UK, on the new independent body for environmental standards. I will give...

Scottish Parliament: Education (3 Jun 2021)

Michael Marra: ..., the UK Government’s adviser on educational recovery has resigned because of the paucity of ambition of that Government and its failure to grasp the scale of the challenge. I hope that we can give some expression to the truly epic scale of the challenge that we face in Scotland, and that we can begin to reveal some of its nature and agree that we will require there to be a radical...

Scottish Parliament: National Qualifications 2021 (2 Jun 2021)

Michael Marra: I thank the cabinet secretary for giving us sight of her statement in the past hour. Just minutes ago, I was contacted by an angry mother, whose story is the latest of very many that I have heard. Her daughter is in the midst of taking 28 exams over 35 days—her friends have even more—and many of those exams have been scheduled for the same day. That situation is typical. Following last...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Recovery (2 Jun 2021)

Jenni Minto: ...elected to represent them in Scotland’s Parliament. I put on record my thanks to the electorate of Argyll and Bute for putting their trust in me, and I promise to work very hard for them. I also give my heartfelt thanks to my fantastic activists across the constituency, who are led by Marie-Claire Docherty and supported by Keir Low and Heather Wolfe, and to my husband, Les Wilson, my...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (27 May 2021)

Michael Marra: It is a singular honour to give my first speech in our Parliament as a representative for North East Scotland, and to do so in the first debate of the session. I thank all my colleagues for their welcome and support, particularly Labour members for their acceptance of what some are calling the Marra downgrade. I extend my thanks for the welcome that has been afforded to all new members by...

Cabinet Office: Voter ID: Enfranchisement (27 May 2021)

Michael Gove: ...important point. It is incumbent on local authorities like her excellent local authority in Lewisham to work to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to vote. I should say, because her question gives me an opportunity to do so, that in recent local elections, not just for the London Assembly and the London Mayor but across the country, those who work in local government—returning...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (27 May 2021)

Michael Gove: ...plans for a meeting with the Prime Minister to discuss the vital importance of covid recovery. I was grateful for the constructive work across the United Kingdom. Mentioning that conversation gives me the opportunity, which I am sure the whole House will want to share, to thank Arlene Foster for her leadership as First Minister of the Northern Ireland Executive. Arlene will be stepping...

Scottish Parliament: National Qualifications 2021 (Appeals Process) (26 May 2021)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: I welcome Michael Marra to the Parliament and to his role as education spokesperson for Labour. I look forward to working with him constructively, I hope, as the First Minister has set out. I believe that we have our first meeting next week on that basis. Michael Marra is absolutely right to point out to members that we need to ensure that people have faith in the process and that they have...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 May 2021)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...of overseas qualifications”. All these clauses are subject to a series of regulation-making powers. Then there is Clause 13, which is a Henry VIII clause par excellence. It essentially gives Ministers power to modify through regulations any piece of primary legislation. This has not been justified by the Government. All we have been told is that it is necessary because “Changes would...

Finance Bill: New Clause 25 - Reporting on the impact of new arrangements on each freeport (24 May 2021)

John Martin McDonnell: ...of us who have been in the House a while—and that does not take long—can recognise this as a rebranding of the enterprise zones policy that the Conservative party wheeled out in the 1980s under Michael Heseltine and also in the last decade, when George Osborne fronted it up. Let me remind the House what the Public Accounts Committee said in May 2014. Its report was pretty damning about...

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 May 2021)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...of our House when the incentives are such—but perhaps I am rather cynical. For those who say, “Well, actually, we have to make allowances for people who cannot come to this House”, I will give one little anecdote. In her latter years, when she was very frail, the late Baroness Thatcher would ring my office—I worked for JP Morgan at the time—to say, “I am thinking of going into...

Attorney General: Domestic Violence Prosecutions (20 May 2021)

Michael Ellis: ...of the covid-19 crisis as it relates to domestic abuse. The decrease in the volume of overall prosecutions due to the impact of covid-19 is a factor, but this Government are funding this area and giving particular focus to it.

Scottish Parliament: Ministers and Junior Ministers (20 May 2021)

Anas Sarwar: I pay tribute to members who, as part of the reshuffle or because of retirement, have left the Government. Too often, the cut and thrust of debate in our Parliament gives the impression that to disagree means to dislike, but that is not the case. Therefore, although we make no apologies for the disagreements that we have had when we fight for better public services, better outcomes for people...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 May 2021)

Lord Teverson: ..., we are waiting for a nature strategy. I congratulate the Treasury on the Dasgupta report, but when will we have a government response to that? There is the 25-year environment plan that Michael Gove brought forward: I would give it 10 out of 10, except that the National Audit Office gave it a scathing report last year. Regarding COP 15 in China, I can get nothing out of the Government...

GKN Automotive Plant: Birmingham — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (28 Apr 2021)

Grahame Morris: ...ago with Helical Bar, a property company that bought up the capital assets that were sold off cheap from Aycliffe and Peterlee Development Corporation, then sold them off, making a huge profit for Michael Slade, the chief executive, and walked away without adding any value to the community or to the local economy. The more than 500 skilled engineering jobs under threat at Birmingham are...
