Prayers - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : The Growth Plan (23 Sep 2022)

Rachel Reeves: ...It is discredited; it is inadequate; and it will not unleash the wave of investment that we need. It is not just Opposition Members who have these concerns; the right hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) described the Prime Minister’s economic plans as a “holiday from reality”. The right hon. Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Rishi Sunak), who was Chancellor two Chancellors ago,...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Exploration Licences (21 Sep 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...gas sector will continue to play an important part in our economy, but we need to ramp up our renewables development, which will help to reduce our overall costs. The impression that some try to give that simply by extracting more oil and gas we can in some way reduce our energy costs is seriously wrong. The reality is that that will not happen, but that is the impression that the UK...

Scottish Parliament: Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (20 Sep 2022)

Michael Marra: ..., faith and a longing for peace. At the heart of the astonishing scenes yesterday in London and Windsor, there were a coffin of wood, a grieving family and a fate equal to every living thing. I give my condolences and those of my constituents to her loved ones. May perpetual light shine upon her and may she rest in peace.

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

the Earl of Shrewsbury: My Lords, I cannot describe adequately the sadness which I and my family feel at the passing of Her late Majesty the Queen. It is a great privilege and honour to have been given the task of opening the batting, so to speak, for my party in your Lordships’ tributes today, and to be able to give my personal tribute and that of all of us who are involved in the world of horses, in recognition...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 19 - New Agreements Amending or Replacing the Northern Ireland Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Michael Ellis: causing real problems for people and businesses in Northern Ireland, and this legislation will fix those practical problems. Let me turn to the clauses under scrutiny this afternoon. Clause 19 gives powers to Ministers to implement a new agreement with the European Union as soon as one can be reached. A negotiated agreement with the EU remains the preferred outcome of this Government...

Seafarers’ Wages Bill [HL] - Second Reading (20 Jul 2022)

Lord Mackay of Clashfern: ...which, I am glad to say, was accepted. A short distance may make a big difference in status, as your Lordships have noticed. I thought, if your Lordships will permit me, it might be of interest to give a summary of the responsibilities I had in the two offices I held, which have now completely changed. Before doing so, I wish briefly to support this Second Reading. For most of the time...

Leaseholders: Service Charges - Question (20 Jul 2022)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...several times that service charges must be governed by law and must not be unreasonable, but they are unreasonable. They are going up exponentially and leaseholders are tearing their hair out. To give the Government credit, some real progress was made under the noble Lord, Lord Greenhalgh, and Michael Gove when he was the Secretary of State, but leaseholders now feel abandoned. At the very...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 13 - Implementation, application, supervision and enforcement of the Protocol (20 Jul 2022)

Michael Ellis: If the hon. Member would not mind, I will give way to him when I come on to his amendment specifically. I would be very grateful if he would give me that indulgence. Clause 20 is important to the functioning of the Bill to allow domestic courts to consider proceedings relating to the protocol without being subject to CJEU jurisdiction, in line with the general principles of the Bill. I now...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 7 - Regulation of goods: option to choose between dual routes (19 Jul 2022)

Michael Ellis: ..., the Bill on which this honourable House is spending up to 18 hours in Committee provides a comprehensive and durable solution to the existing problems with the Northern Ireland protocol by giving businesses a choice over which regulatory route to follow when placing goods on the market in Northern Ireland. I therefore recommend that the clauses under consideration stand part of the Bill.

Contaminated Blood Scandal: Interim Payments for Victims (19 Jul 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...Minister for the infected blood inquiry. I can tell the House that it was delivered to me as the current sponsor Minister for the infected blood inquiry only in March. Sir Robert had been asked to give independent advice about the design of a workable and fair framework for compensation for victims of infected blood that could be ready to implement upon the conclusion of the inquiry,...

Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (18 Jul 2022)

Michael Fabricant: I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way. He may not agree with me, but I think that he is being a little unfair to the Leader of the Opposition. The pointless motion today, which he knows—[Interruption.] Oh, yes! The Leader of the Opposition demanded it, and the Leader of the Opposition is now getting it. The motion that he asked for and is getting today will unite the...

Extreme Heat Preparedness (18 Jul 2022)

Michael Fabricant: ...Office, which was able to predict the heatwave with its Cray computers and declare a red alert days in advance? Is he aware that the Governments of France and Germany have been criticised for not giving advance warning of heatwaves in the northern parts of those countries, where heatwaves are not so known?

Public Advocate (No. 2) Bill (15 Jul 2022)

Maria Eagle: ...of Government control and direction. It would require the public advocate to act if 50% plus one or more of the representatives of the deceased and injured survivors ask the advocate to act. Lord Michael Wills and I have been introducing a Public Advocate Bill into the Commons and the Lords since 2016. That is why this is one is called the Public Advocate (No.2) Bill. It has already been...

Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Jul 2022)

the Earl of Devon: ...Its members are indeed an eminent group, but their review lasted only three days, during which they interviewed some 25 people. This amounts to considerably less than one hour with each person and gives the sense of a review conducted in a considerable rush. Given the huge amount of work that has gone into R&R over recent years, I am not clear that such a brief review provides a sufficient...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill: Clause 1 - Overview of main provisions (13 Jul 2022)

Geoffrey Cox: No, I will not give way. Too many need to speak. It is no light matter for this House to take a step that is in contravention of its international obligations. The dignity of this nation rests upon its word being seen to be implemented once it is given. Therefore, I think it a small thing—a reasonable thing—that my hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst has asked. My right...

150th Open Championship — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jul 2022)

Gavin Newlands: ...I have a love-hate relationship with the game, it must be said. I can just as easily hit 79 as 109, although recently I am much closer to the latter, mainly because of my slice. I said to my friend Michael Somerville, who I will be attending the Open with this weekend, that I would mention in my speech that the last time out I beat him seven and six. Hopefully that is now on the record for...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 10 (12 Jul 2022)

the Duke of Wellington: ...the Minister also refers to the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Deben: that these schools could be forced to join multi-academy trusts by the threat of withholding funding. But the Minister then gives assurances only about the funding of mainstream academies, so it does not really meet the point. We must be clear that these schools are very special. The music and dance programme was...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (12 Jul 2022)

Lord Harris of Peckham: ...over free schools from start-ups or failing schools. Some 90% of our schools are now outstanding, and we have five world-class secondary schools and one world-class primary school. I have to thank Michael Gove, Secretary of State at the time, for giving us that school seven years ago under a lot of opposition. It was in the worst 2% of schools in the country but now, seven years later, it...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 19 - Duties to protect news publisher content (12 Jul 2022)

David Davis: ...on these Benches: beware of the gamesmanship that will go on in future years in relation to this. Ofcom and the Department see these measures as transparency measures—that is the line. Lord Michael Grade, who is an old friend of mine, came to see me and he talked about this not as a pressure, but as a transparency measure. However, these are actually pressure measures. If people are made...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 72 - Long-term empty dwellings: England (12 Jul 2022)

Marcus Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I would like to pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) and our predecessors on the Committee, my right hon. Friend the Member for Pudsey (Stuart Andrew) and my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Neil O’Brien), all of whom did a huge job to bring the Bill to where it is today....
