Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (15 Jun 2022)

the Duke of Wellington: ...I could find to stimulate a discussion on the point that I raise in the amendment. What is absolutely clear from the debates at Second Reading and the two days of Committee so far is that this Bill gives very great powers to the Secretary of State over any school that receives funding from the taxpayer. The concern that I and others have is how a number of very specialist schools will be...

Universal Basic Income (15 Jun 2022)

Beth Winter: decided by the Barnett formula. From what I understand, attempts by the Welsh Government to discuss potential assistance from the UK Government fell on deaf ears. I welcome the pilot, which gives care leavers £1,600 per month. That amount is significantly higher than the amount in any other basic income pilot globally. It is broadly equivalent to the real living wage. There is a...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35B (13 Jun 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: noble friend Lord Knight, because it is such an important issue and deserves its own debate. Our Amendment 36 would remove the exemption teachers in academies have from needing to have QTS but gives a grace period until September 2024 to give schools and teachers sufficient time to adjust. We felt that this is a sensible way forward. The amendment redresses the opt-out given by former...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Blood: Contamination (13 Jun 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...Blood Inquiry, I announced earlier this week the publication of the study by Sir Robert Francis QC into a framework of compensation for people directly affected by infected blood. Sir Robert will give evidence about his work to the Infected Blood Inquiry on 11th and 12th July. The government is considering Sir Robert’s recommendations.

Social Housing and Building Safety (9 Jun 2022)

Michael Gove: ...a permanent and appropriate memorial to honour those who lost their lives in the tragedy. I recommend to all Members of the House the commission’s recent report. It makes for powerful reading and gives us all an opportunity to reflect on what the right way is to ensure that there is a fitting memorial for those who have lost their lives. The scene of that fire is both, of course, a crime...

Ukraine: Defence Relationships - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2022)

Lord Liddle: ...and European collective security. It deprioritised the Army. It focused British grand strategy on a tilt towards the Indo-Pacific to confront the rising power of China. It showed, in Professor Michael Clarke’s words, “frankly insulting indifference to European partners”. Its claims to be truly integrated now ring hollow. There was no discussion of oil, gas or energy security; no...

Cabinet Office: Infected Blood: Compensation (9 Jun 2022)

Michael Ellis: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for rightly raising the concerns of his constituents. I know that Members across the House will have constituents in similar positions. Sir Robert will give evidence to the inquiry on 11 and 12 July, so just a few weeks from now, and the Government will need to reflect very carefully on his evidence to the inquiry in considering his study. But the points my...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (9 Jun 2022)

Michael Ellis: As I said earlier, Sir Robert will give evidence on 11 and 12 July. The Government will want to hear what he has to say. We will study it very carefully and will act as expeditiously as possible after that.

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (8 Jun 2022)

Baroness Morris of Yardley: ...—which, as my noble friend Lord Knight said, we could amend. All it says is that the Government will take powers on anything they want. It is really tough to amend that, because it does not give the criteria against which they will judge whether to take powers, or what they will do with the powers they take. There is nothing to amend because it is all about the future. That is why the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Michael Gove: I am always delighted to give way to the hon. Lady.

Standards in Public Life (7 Jun 2022)

Michael Ellis: I will make a little progress, but I will be giving way later. Let me start by saying that the changes made to the ministerial code in this iteration and to the role of the independent adviser, published on 27 May, represent the most substantial strengthening of the role of the independent adviser since the establishment of that post in 2006. To be clear, those changes include: revised terms...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Publication of Sir Robert Francis QC’s infected blood compensation study (7 Jun 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...who contributed to the study and shared their experiences with Sir Robert. I do not underestimate how difficult this must have been for many, and I am grateful for their courage. Sir Robert will give evidence about his work to the Infected Blood Inquiry on 11th and 12th July. Before then, it is important that the Inquiry, and recognised legal representatives of its infected and affected...

Scottish Parliament: Greenhouse Gas Emissions Statistics 2020 (7 Jun 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...Government is fully behind the Acorn project. That it is why I have agreed to make £80 million available to support delivery of the project at a faster pace. We now need to see the UK Government giving the green light to allow the project to move forward so that we can reap not only the environmental but the economic and social benefits that will come from it.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Action on the Building Safety Crisis: Action on the Building Safety Crisis (6 Jun 2022)

Sadiq Khan: I will do whatever we can to encourage that to happen. It gives me a chance to give credit to [The Rt Hon] Michael Gove [MP, Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities], who has moved a long way in relation to this area since taking over this brief. I think this would not have happened had he not been the Secretary of State in this department, compared to his predecessor,...

Scottish Parliament: Further Education (Funding) (1 Jun 2022)

Michael Marra: this year. They have also received letters from the Scottish Funding Council asking them to do the same job that they did last year, on all the same metrics, with less money. First, will he give assurances that the regular clawback processes will not be put in place by the SFC if targets are not met, given that budgets have been cut? Also, can he speak to the SFC to ensure that there...

Scottish Parliament: Tackling Drug Deaths and Drug Harm (31 May 2022)

Michael Marra: ...evidence—[ Interruption .] If the minister will let me go on, I note that no evidence has been presented in any marshalled way against the numbers that she has brought to the chamber, in order to give an analysis of the where, the why, the how and the when. That would be appreciated by all members.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Intergovernmental Relations Quarterly report (26 May 2022)

Michael Gove: ...the UK Government published the report of our engagement with the devolved administrations in quarter one of 2022 on GOV.UK. The report covers a period where we have seen unprecedented events, and gives an insight into the extensive engagement between the UK Government, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive between 1 January and 31 March 2022. During this...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 May 2022)

Lord Strasburger: ...example, the noble Lord, Lord Feldman of Elstree, recommended four successful companies; the then Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, recommended four as well, including his local pub landlord; while Michael Gove referred Meller Designs, a firm run by David Meller, who has donated £60,000 to the Conservative Party, including funding for Mr Gove’s leadership bid. I will not bore the House...

Cost of Living: Fiscal Approach — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (25 May 2022)

Emma Hardy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Twigg. On Sunday, Michael Lewis, the chief executive of E.ON, announced that 1 million of its customers were already in arrears with their fuel bills. He expects that to rise to half of all its customers—4 million people—by October. The National Institute of Economic and Social Research predicts that more than 1.5 million households...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill (24 May 2022)

Jim Shannon: .... Daniel McCormick left a wife and three young children. She got £3,500 from the Northern Ireland Office as compensation for the loss of her husband and the father to her children. How does that give us justice? It does not give me justice, and I do not think it gives anyone in this House justice. What I see unfortunately is legislation that does not take into consideration my position as...
