Environment Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 119 (30 Jun 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...it costs local authorities £600 million a year to dispose of them. When such nappies are sent to landfill it takes 300 years—roughly 12 generations—for them to break down. Incinerating them gives rise to significant carbon emissions and local air pollution levels, an issue we keep coming back to. This is where my amendment links to that tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw:...

Environment Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 110 (30 Jun 2021)

Lord Teverson: ...ago?—was that, at that moment, it seemed the Government had suddenly discovered soil for the first time. The great advocate at that time, who particularly seemed to have discovered soil, was Michael Gove, the then Environment Secretary. I ask my Liberal Democrat colleagues to put their ear muffs on for a moment: I thought that Michael Gove was an absolutely excellent Secretary of State...

Bill Presented: Subsidy Control (30 Jun 2021)

Presentation and First Reading ( Standing Order No. 57) Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng, supported by the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Michael Gove, Secretary George Eustice, Secretary Robert Jenrick, Secretary Oliver Dowden, Secretary Alister Jack, Secretary Brandon Lewis, Secretary Simon Hart and Paul Scully, presented a Bill to make provision regulating the giving of subsidies...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 94 (28 Jun 2021)

Lord Rooker: ...there would be where there is public uproar and where Ministers find it very useful to have an expert body that is able to speak to the public and engender their confidence. Believe you me, I am giving this away for free. It can be a bonus for Ministers, and they ought to wake up to that fact.

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82 (28 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...entirely that we were promised oversight as near as possible equivalent to and as effective as that which pertained through our membership of the European Union, and that my right honourable friend Michael Gove, in the other place, said that it would be inappropriate for Defra to be in charge in the way that, it has now become apparent, it will be. On balance, I prefer the amendment in the...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Extension and Expiry) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (22 Jun 2021)

Willie Coffey: ...behaviour, criminality and abandonment of a property, tenants will continue to be afforded some protection from eviction during the critical times when the legislation applies. I am grateful to Michael Clancy and the Law Society for their detailed briefing, which covers that topic in some depth. They recognise that the pandemic has led to many job losses and a reduction of income for many...

Government Contracts: Covid-19 — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (21 Jun 2021)

Tonia Antoniazzi: ...and its signatories, who have enabled this debate to be held in Parliament. Those campaigners have shed some light on the contracts that have been awarded by the Government, and I would like to give a short taste of what has been happening behind closed doors while our frontline workers have battled to keep us safe from the disease. First, there is the £560,000 to Public First, a...

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (21 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...we are seeing increasing amounts of surface water. This is a relatively recent phenomenon; it was identified for the first time in any significant way in 2007. I am drawing on the experience of Sir Michael Pitt, who was asked by the then Labour Government to write a very comprehensive review of how we should adapt to this new form of surface water flooding. Many of his recommendations have...

Misuse of Drugs Act (17 Jun 2021)

Alison Thewliss: ...It marks its 20th anniversary this year with some reflection on where it has come from. In 1986 Switzerland had among the highest reported HIV prevalences in the world. According to Miriam Wolf and Michael Herzig, between 1991 and 2010 overdose deaths in Switzerland decreased by 50%, HIV infections decreased by 65%, and new heroin users decreased by 80%. This is the result of a public...

Scottish Parliament: Drug-related Deaths (17 Jun 2021)

Paul O'Kane: ...on deaths, which is two years retrospective, is not adequate for reacting with the flexibility that we need. The minister touched on that; I hope that she will say more in her concluding remarks. Michael Marra referred to that fact we have, throughout Covid, had a wealth of data at our fingertips and on our television screens daily, including analysis of trends and data-led decision...

Church Commissioners: Choral Singing in Churches and Cathedrals: Covid-19 (17 Jun 2021)

Michael Fabricant: ..., which is very relaxing indeed. Whatever reason people go to evensong—perhaps even religious reasons, for worship—there is a need for it to be restored. What assurance can my hon. Friend give that, come 19 July, things will truly get back to normal in Lichfield and elsewhere?

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Jun 2021)

Baroness Mallalieu: ...I hope that it would work better than rural-proofing—but it is strictly unnecessary. What I am not clear about is why it is being done in the way in which it has. Like the first Bill, which Michael Gove, the then Environment Minister, wisely withdrew, it is likely to benefit lawyers, at the taxpayers’ expense, and to be a bureaucratic nightmare with no limit to its remit, unlike the EU...

Scottish Parliament: Redress for Survivors (Historical Child Abuse in Care) Scotland Act 2021 (16 Jun 2021)

Michael Marra: ...I am sure that he will agree that, for many survivors, that will be a key moment. Around 25 per cent of applications to the advance payment scheme were unsuccessful. Will the Deputy First Minister give some insight into why such a number were rejected and whether that seemingly high number of unsuccessful applications shows that there is a need to widen the criteria until the full scheme...

Scottish Parliament: Greenhouse Gas Emissions Statistics 2019 (15 Jun 2021)

Michael Matheson: ...forestry sector through the growing rural talent initiative; farmer-led groups are looking at low-carbon farming practices; and we are providing long-term investment in peatland restoration. We are giving 75 per cent cashback to households for zero-emission heating, as well as interest-free loans to purchase a new electric car or motorcycle. We want to go further. By 2030, we will phase...

Scottish Parliament: Dr Gray’s Maternity Unit (15 Jun 2021)

Douglas Ross: ...issue years ago during the original campaign to have a consultant-led maternity unit. Margaret Ewing, who was the Scottish National Party MSP at the time, led the charge locally and worked with Michael Forsyth, who was the Conservative minister, to ensure that we had a consultant-led unit. We are all working again to restore the unit, because it is vital. We have outstanding staff at Dr...

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....
