Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 170 (16 Mar 2022)

Lord Sentamu: that this is not to open the debate in favour of or against assisted dying but, as the debate has gone on, there has been an opening up of that debate. We have to look very carefully at what was given to us by the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, on the constitutional question. This amendment is not saying that the Government must find time to debate this matter but...

Scottish Parliament: Substance Use in the Justice System (16 Mar 2022)

Jamie Greene: If I had any time to give, I would love to have a proper debate. I apologise to the cabinet secretary, although I would be happy to have the conversation with him We have not heard today about getting drugs off our streets in the first place. They do not magic themselves there. There are wholesale factories in the UK and across Europe that are making pills by the millions. Heroin and cocaine...

Private Rented Sector Housing: BBC Accountability and Transparency (15 Mar 2022)

Nigel Huddleston: ...with inflation for the following four years. This settlement aims to support households at a time when they need that support the most and sends an important message about keeping costs down and giving the BBC what it needs to deliver to fulfill its remit. The BBC will continue to receive around £3.7 billion in annual public funding, allowing it to deliver its mission and public purposes...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Adoption and Children Bill: Final Stage (15 Mar 2022)

Robin Swann: .... Born out of the Adopting the Future draft strategy in 2006, the Bill has been long-awaited by all those who are involved in the adoption process and children's social care. Indeed, the fact that Michael McGimpsey was the first Minister to try to secure these changes is indicative of just how long the wait has been. On behalf of the adoption agencies, the fostering service providers, the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Study on Infected Blood Compensation Framework (15 Mar 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...Robert’s findings and recommendations. It is my intention to publish the Study and the Government response, in time for the Inquiry and its core participants to consider them before Sir Robert gives evidence to the Inquiry. I will write in due course to Sir Brian Langstaff, the Chair of the Inquiry, about our plans for responding and publication.

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill: Clause 2 - Revival of prerogative powers to dissolve Parliament and to call a new Parliament (14 Mar 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...—that may come as a surprise to the House—especially when it comes to the constitution? I agree that flex is required and that it is highly desirable to have an unwritten constitution that gives us that flex and ability to change things as needed while accepting the conventions of our constitution. The Lords amendment before the House is not a small amendment; in fact, it is a wrecking...

Ukrainian Refugees — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (14 Mar 2022)

Catherine McKinnell: does that fit with the suggestion made by the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and Minister for Intergovernmental Relations, the right hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) that the public could find people to sponsor on social media? Is that really the safest way to go about that, if security is the main concern? It is telling that Germany, France...

Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (14 Mar 2022)

Michael Gove: ...that we are working with all of them this week to facilitate their role, not just in matching individual sponsors and Ukrainians who might benefit but in extending the reach of the support we give so that it is not just a roof over someone’s head but the valuable interpersonal support of which so many are capable. When I was chatting to faith groups earlier today, I had the opportunity...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendments 15 and 16 (10 Mar 2022)

Lord Rennard: ...previous Government before this one sought to change that principle. So I ask why, if we could not have “Tony’s cronies” overseeing the work of the Electoral Commission, we should then have Michael Gove overseeing it? To have any government Minister of any political party setting the overall strategy and policy for the Electoral Commission effectively ends its independence. Since the...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Emergency (10 Mar 2022)

Brian Whittle: ...about that right now, instead of listening to a noisy minority. This must be a Parliament that starts to deliver if we are to have any hope of reaching the targets for 2030 and 2045. We must give the public confidence that the changes that they face are not only necessary but have been thought through and are practical. However, Government minister Patrick Harvie has given us a...

National Tutoring Programme and Adult Education (9 Mar 2022)

Robert Halfon: ...yet ready to do a level 3 apprenticeship. I want them to do so—it is wonderful that the Government are going to offer level 3 in the core subjects—but if they are not ready, it makes sense to give them the opportunity to start on a level 2 apprenticeship and use that for progression, as long as they progress to level 3 after that. I recognise that funds are difficult and that they are...

Ukraine Update (9 Mar 2022)

John Whittingdale: Three years ago, I visited Mariupol with my right hon. Friend’s predecessor, Michael Fallon, and we heard the Ukrainian armed forces’ appreciation of the help we were already giving them then through Operation Orbital, so I strongly welcome my right hon. Friend’s announcement today. Does he agree with the Secretary-General of NATO that the sight of bodies lying unburied on the streets...

Scottish Parliament: General Practice Closures (NHS Tayside) (9 Mar 2022)

Michael Marra: ...about the need to address local people’s concerns about the Ryehill health centre, but I have yet to receive a response. Some 5,300 patients are being thrown into limbo. Can the cabinet secretary give clarity on what will happen next? Where will people get care and when will they know that? The closure flies in the face of the announcement that the cabinet secretary made in Dundee, just...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill (9 Mar 2022)

Donald Cameron: ...) Bill, the contents of which were originally due to be part of a more wide-ranging piece of legislation. As others have said, it might well be that there is more UK legislation to come. However, given the situation that we currently face and the need for urgency in targeting illicit finance, including from Russia, it is right that the bill is being discussed today. I also welcome the fact...

Points of Order (8 Mar 2022)

Michael Fabricant: ...ways this House has been brought into disrepute. Will there be any occasion for the Leader of the House to come to the House and make a statement about this damning report about John Bercow, and to give us an opportunity to debate how on earth this terror of bullying could have lasted so long?

Ukraine: Urgent Refugee Applications (8 Mar 2022)

Ian Paisley Jnr: My constituent Michael Jevdokymenko has been contacted by his family, who have fled from Ukraine. They have no documents, no papers—nothing. They are at the border with a little three-year-old child. What assistance can we provide to give that family hope, to get them to Northern Ireland and to let them re-establish some semblance of normality? Where is the Christian compassion for which...

Metropolitan Police: Misogyny and Sexual Harassment — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (8 Mar 2022)

Sarah Jones: I thank the Minister for giving way. I just wanted to draw to her attention a major report that is being published this morning by Sir Michael Barber and the Policing Foundation, which is considering police reform. I know that the Minister has listed actions she is taking in relation to violence against women and girls, but in terms of police reform Sir Michael Barber and the Police...

Scottish Parliament: North Sea Oil and Gas (Energy Security) (8 Mar 2022)

Michael Matheson: ..., with very low reliance on imported oil and gas from Russia—it is about 2 per cent, apparently, which could easily be displaced by alternative supplies. It would be wrong of the member to try to give the impression that there is an issue with security of supply. As he will also be aware, the equivalent of Scotland’s domestic electricity supply—some 98 per cent of it—now comes from...

Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill (7 Mar 2022)

Andrew Slaughter: ...later, but I would like to hear from the Government which of the amendments they propose to accept. If they do not intend to accept them on technical grounds, I would like to hear them at least give assurances that during the Bill’s passage they will bring forward their own versions of the relevant measures. I said earlier to the Home Secretary that there is a gap between the rhetoric...

Written Answers — Treasury: VTB Bank (7 Mar 2022)

Michael Fabricant: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, for what reason a 30 day licence has been granted giving permission for any individual or entity to wind down any transactions with Russian bank VTB until 27 March.
