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...

Rights to Protest — [James Gray in the Chair] (26 Apr 2021)

Sarah Jones: ...by forcing the public to protest against their freedom to protest being taken away from them in the middle of a pandemic? My third point, which again has been well rehearsed, is that the changes give dangerous powers to the Home Secretary to make regulations about the meaning of “serious disruption”. The former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Maidenhead, made a really...

Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities - Statement (21 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: ...that we have made in our efforts to develop race equality in the UK. Since its publication, the report has garnered widespread criticism from groups and individuals such as the BMA, Professor Michael Marmot, all of our major trade unions, which represent over five million workers, and human rights experts at the UN who state that the report has misrepresented data, shoe-horned conclusions...

Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities (20 Apr 2021)

Marsha de Cordova: ...in the UK. Since publication, the report has completely unravelled. Far from bad-faith actors, this report has been discredited by experts, including the British Medical Association, Professor Michael Marmot, trade unions representing over 5 million workers, human rights experts at the UN and Baroness Lawrence, who said it gives a “green light to racists”. Its cherry-picking of data is...

English Language Sector (15 Apr 2021)

Conor Burns: ...was offered up 11 years ago in return for the extended student visitor visa: limited rights to work for students who are in the UK? I see my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Dorset and North Poole (Michael Tomlinson) on the Treasury Bench, and the hospitality sector is very important to our part of the UK in Dorset. Businesses in the sector are struggling, post our departure from the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Tributes to His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (12 Apr 2021)

Michelle O'Neill: ...Philip in Belfast. That marked a very important step on our journey to reconciliation on this island and between our islands. Then, in 2014, the state visit to Britain by the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, occurred. That was the first state visit of a president of Ireland to Britain. As part of that, Martin McGuinness and I travelled to London's Royal Albert Hall to take part in...

Cabinet Office: Civil Service: Location of Jobs (25 Mar 2021)

Michael Gove: Thanks to my hon. Friend, I never give Clacton anything other than serious consideration. Clacton, Frinton and the communities that he so ably represents contain talented people who have a contribution to make, and of course we will do everything possible, not necessarily by relocating civil service departments to that part of Essex, but by ensuring that there are opportunities through...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Mar 2021)

Michael Gove: Bridgend’s position—brilliantly, close to Cardiff but with good transport links to Swansea as well—gives it the perfect opportunity to benefit from the additional investment that my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade has put into a new trade hub in Cardiff. Of course, it is already the case that Swansea is the home not only to an outstanding university, but to the...

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill (23 Mar 2021)

Neil Gray: ...as those in Airdrie and Shotts that I have already spoken about will receive their full Barnettised share of ARIA funding through the Scottish Government? Will the UK Government also commit now to give any powers going to ARIA in areas such as borrowing and debt financing to the Scottish National Investment Bank to ensure that there is parity there? A string of cronyism scandals has...

Scottish Parliament: Tied Pubs (Scotland) Bill (23 Mar 2021)

Neil Bibby: I thank all members who have participated in the debate. I pay tribute to Margaret Mitchell, who just made her final speech. She was a particular help to my constituent, the late Michael McClelland. He was grateful for her support when she was convener of the Justice Committee, and I thank her. I thank the minister, again, for the leadership that he has shown in listening to Scotland’s tied...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Commercial Activity) (18 Mar 2021)

...of the devastating real-world consequences of Brexit, particularly for our smaller food and drink producers. The Tory Government is currently refusing to get back round the table with the EU. When giving one of the UK Government’s many empty promises, Michael Gove said that it would pull out all the stops to help businesses, but it has completely failed to do that. The UK Government also...

Scottish Parliament: Airline Sector (Revitalisation) (18 Mar 2021)

The First Minister: Graham Simpson talks about “certainty”. I would love nothing more than to give people—including those in the aviation sector—certainty, but we are in a global pandemic, with an infectious virus, and it is not possible to do that. Other parts of the UK are often described as having given certainty, but I do not think that they have given it, either. Last night, I...

Attorney General: International Law on Rights of Refugees: Government Compliance (18 Mar 2021)

Michael Ellis: I thank the hon. Lady for her question, but I am afraid that I cannot discuss what advice I give in other Departments and I cannot comment on legislation that the Government have not presented to Parliament. What I can say is this: the Government’s position is that refugees should claim asylum in the first safe country in which they find themselves. That is an international understanding,...
