Black Maternal Health Awareness Week 2022 — [James Gray in the Chair] (2 Nov 2022)

Caroline Nokes: ...that as an imperative. We must ensure that we reduce the inequity, of which there are many drivers. She was with me when the Women and Equalities Committee took evidence from Professor Sir Michael Marmot, who talks so compellingly about health inequalities and their drivers. I will not say that there is anything wrong with black women’s bodies—there is not—but we have to look at...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 9 - Names for criminal purposes (1 Nov 2022)

Alison Thewliss: ...that looks into this in some detail. A company has been registered using computer code. It was registered under the name ; DROP TABLE "COMPANIES";-- LTD, which has some computer code around it. Dr Michael Tandy registered that company name, but Companies House did not publish the name on its register; it said that the name was available on request. Can the Minister clarify whether the...

Scottish Parliament: Disorder (Dundee) (1 Nov 2022)

Michael Marra: ...cease sales voluntarily to increase the confidence of local people that there will be no repetition of the situation this weekend? Dundee City Council has recently cut public displays, so will he give us any information on additional resources that can be brought from the fire service and police around Scotland to ensure that the public have confidence for this weekend?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 9 (31 Oct 2022)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...without a declaration? Will they be prohibited from shipping to Northern Ireland if they have not declared what their route is? How will they know what status their GB or EORI classification gives them? We have been led to believe that if they operate under the Trader Support Service with an EORI classification, this process is already streamlined. Will there be a Trader Support Service...

50th Anniversary of the Expulsion of Asians from Uganda - Motion to Take Note (27 Oct 2022)

Lord Cormack: ...enter the European Union, and I shall always be sad that that was reversed. I thought of that remarkable Saturday morning when we debated the Falklands, and when the leader of the Opposition, Michael Foot, made it possible for us to send a task force by giving his support in a great speech. Then I thought of those days in 1972 when, like my noble friend Lord Dykes—I am just one day older...

Scottish Parliament: Hydrogen and Electric Buses (27 Oct 2022)

Michael Matheson: ..., as a result of funding support that came from the Scottish Government. On the potential for hydrogen investment, I agree with the member that hydrogen refuelling is a key part of helping to give the industry confidence in the growth of the technology. However, the way in which bus decarbonisation funding operates is that it is agnostic on the technology. The vast majority of bus...

Scottish Parliament: Royal National Mòd 2022 (Perth) (27 Oct 2022)

Murdo Fraser: ...year. The organisation exists to promote Gaelic language and culture, and the Mòd is its annual showcase. An Comunn is supported by a small annual grant from Bòrd na Gàidhlig of about £100,000. Given the importance of the Mòd to Gaelic culture, I hope that the annual grant will be at least maintained if not increased. Indeed, I believe that there is a strong case for Creative Scotland...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Shona Robison: ...the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 and of the effect of a GRC have not changed since the 2004 act, and none of that will be changed by this bill. That all remains the same. I give that guarantee again. The other area that I will mention is the application process, which was another point raised by Labour members. I am happy to work with them and with others from...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (25 Oct 2022)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...Protocol Bill needs to be changed so that it actually solves the problem. That means VAT, excise and medicines should be under UK law from day one—currently they are not … Otherwise we’re giving Brussels a legislative blank cheque. These are all changes I’ve been fighting for while in government. Without them, the bill treats people living in Northern Ireland as second-class...

Energy Prices Bill - Committee: Amendment 8 (24 Oct 2022)

Lord McNicol of West Kilbride: ..., the UK has some of the least energy-efficient housing in Europe. According to my figures, 19 million homes are estimated to be below EPC band C. His figure was 15 million; I am sure he will forgive the 4 million. In excess of 10 million homes are worse than EPC band C. Under the Conservatives, home insulation rates have plummeted. In 2013, the then Government cut energy efficiency...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Cammell Laird: Strikes (24 Oct 2022)

Michael Tomlinson: ...been asked to provide advice, and the contents of any such advice, is not disclosed outside of Government. This protects the Law Officers’ ability as chief legal advisers to the Government to give full and frank legal advice. In respect of discussions between the then Attorney Generals and officials and those outside of Government, I can confirm that we have no record of any discussions...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 80 - Licensing scheme: holiday lets (20 Oct 2022)

Rachael Maskell: ...Government Whip, the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire, took forward a consultation on Airbnbs in his former role; however, any scheme has to go further than registration. This evening, Councillor Michael Pavlovic in York will move a motion that would allow local authorities to go as far as they can on the issue, but it will not be far enough. That is why we need legislation to license...

Backbench Business: Homes and Buildings: Levelling Up Health and Wellbeing — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (20 Oct 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...the betterment that we want to see, but we must also address the question of homes that do not have those things, which brings me to insulation. There must be a plan of action. Will the Minister give us some indication of what the Government are doing to help buildings that do not come up to that standard? I am very pleased to see the shadow Minister in her place, and I look forward to her...

Violent Crime, Gang Activity and Burglaries - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2022)

Lord Snape: ...break down the door accompanied by a member of the local authority. The sight and smell of a corpse that had been in that property for some three months remains with me after 30-odd years. When we give police officers tasks such as that at a fairly young age, it is perhaps inevitable that they develop a carapace—a thick skin—concerning the duties they have to undertake. We followed...

Attorney General: Rwanda Relocation Policy (20 Oct 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...the United Kingdom want to maintain. The convention that I mentioned is important, and I intend to respect it. It protects the ability of Law Officers, as chief legal advisers to the Government, to give full and frank legal advice.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Ministry of Justice: Monitoring (19 Oct 2022)

Michael Tomlinson: ...by a Framework Agreement, and by a protocol in the case of HMCPSI. The Treasury Solicitor is the Permanent Secretary of the GLD and the GLD's own guidance in respect of undertakings is to "avoid giving undertakings unless strictly necessary", and that if it is absolutely necessary to give an undertaking, GLD lawyers should do so only in accordance with the Solicitors Regulation Authority's...

Standards (18 Oct 2022)

Chris Bryant: ...part; in the end, it is a matter for the member’s own conscience. Broadly speaking, in most of our minds, someone who had not attended the individual Member’s oral evidence would not be able to give them a fair hearing. It is not in the motion—we are relaxed about that—but I wanted to give the House an indication of where we are going on that issue. I thank both Sir Ernest Ryder...

Energy Prices Bill: Domestic energy price reduction schemes for Great Britain (17 Oct 2022)

Barry Gardiner: ...(Helen Morgan) and for Hexham (Guy Opperman) alluded to the way in which the Bill looks predominantly at the supply side. It should also look at the demand side. The chief executive of E.ON, Michael Lewis, has pointed out that a sustained programme of energy efficiency could have reduced the amount of energy used in UK homes by 25%—the equivalent of six Hinkley C nuclear power stations....

Health and Social Care Levy (Repeal) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (17 Oct 2022)

Lord Lipsey: Sorry; I know Michael better than Tom. I thank the noble Lord for that correction. Let us be in no doubt: this Bill is another U-turn, not by the Truss Government—they have got in so many—but on this Conservative Administration’s policy. The levy was brought in by the Johnson Government as a way of funding the changes they wanted to make in health and social care, which I will speak...

Times Education Commission Report - Motion to Take Note (13 Oct 2022)

Baroness Chapman of Darlington: ...so helpful. Of course, what is also needed is a Government with a laser-like focus on this topic, and we do not have that right now. Two politicians have been raised rather a lot: Tony Blair and Michael Gove. Much as I fundamentally disagreed with Michael Gove on many of the things that he did—the one that stands out was the rebanding of the grades in GCSE English one year, which was...
