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,...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (Publication of Draft Bill) (17 Mar 2021)

Michael Russell: ..., I start by disagreeing with Mr Smyth. He will have heard what I said in response to Mr Balfour. The urgent necessity is for Scotland to build forward from the pandemic in a way that will give it a sustainable future. That cannot be done by a United Kingdom Government, and I am disappointed that the Scottish Labour Party still believes that it can.

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Support for Companies) (17 Mar 2021)

Michael Russell: ...this evening. First, I want to say sorry. I know that that will surprise people, but I noticed in a recent article that one member singled me out as the person they most disliked in the Parliament. Given that one of my many faults is that I find it hard to resist a good line, I know that I have rubbed some people up the wrong way, sometimes on several occasions and sometimes even my own...

Scottish Parliament: United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill (16 Mar 2021)

John Swinney: ...all members. This journey has involved many people and it has taken the Government a long time to get to this point. We were led through the foothills of the journey by my dear friend and colleague Michael Russell, who is sitting behind me—I cannot say that he has always been behind me over the years, but he has been behind me more often that not. Michael has been a friend, ally,...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (11 Mar 2021)

Lord Craig of Radley: My Lords, the Minister has reminded us that, when Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon said: “before embarking on significant future military operations, this government intends derogating from the European Convention on Human Rights, where this is appropriate in the precise circumstances of the operation in question.” In her letter of 26 February, the Minister indicated that Clause 12 was...

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail Franchise (New Operator) (11 Mar 2021)

Michael Matheson: ...on-going impact of Covid-19, and we still await the publication of the United Kingdom Government’s white paper on rail. I expect to be in a position soon to provide an update to Parliament and to give the assurances that ScotRail staff and passengers would expect.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Final Stage (9 Mar 2021)

Mike Nesbitt: ...to have the fiscal competence that others outside of the Building could bring into play. I regret that it looks as if the mandate will end without our moving to multi-year Budgets. That move would give certainty not only to the business community, which tells us that it needs certainty, but to the community and voluntary sector. I will not rehearse the problems; I am well quoted on those...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (9 Mar 2021)

Lord Morris of Aberavon: ...Official Report, Commons, 3/11/20; col. 277.] the ICC are there. There may be an argument about this, but that is what he said and we should always bear it in mind. Perhaps the Minister could give an assurance on that very point of what—if any—the dangers are of going before the ICC. The wise words of Professor Michael Clarke, the former director-general of the Royal United Services...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Richard Holden: ...of the support and the grants through to September this year. That is really important for all our businesses and for people in employment locally. The VAT support—5% rising to 12.5%—will also give our hospitality sector real time to get on its feet. I ally that with a campaign that I was involved in, along with many Conservative Members, to ensure that our pubs and clubs could get...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Lord Winston: .... I do not know who it was from. I presume it was from people who had a different sexuality, but I do not know for certain because I did not meet any of them. Many did not sign their name or give me an address, so it was impossible to know. I was very upset to hear the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, speak in the way she did, because we have agreed on many issues before. I have a massive...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Meeting of the Withdrawal Agreement Joint Committee: 24 February 2021 (25 Feb 2021)

Michael Gove: ...by the Joint Committee co-chairs, there would be further joint engagement with business groups and other stakeholders in Northern Ireland. The UK and the EU underlined their shared commitment to giving effect to those solutions agreed through the Joint Committee on 17 December 2020, without delay. The UK noted that it would provide a new operational plan with respect to supermarkets and...
