Regional Inequalities: Child Poverty — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (2 Mar 2022)

Liz Twist: ...has considered regional inequalities and child poverty. It is a pleasure, Dr Huq, to serve under you as Chair in this debate on regional inequalities and child poverty. Speaking about child poverty gives me no pleasure at all. In 2022, in the world’s fifth-richest country, we should not need to talk about child poverty or regional inequalities at all, yet sadly too many of my...

High-rise Buildings: Remediation — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (2 Mar 2022)

Stuart Andrew: ...that were raised. I want to reiterate that I hope that the announcement made by the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, my right hon. Friend the Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove), will indicate to the House how seriously the Government take this issue. The whole package of measures that has been announced and the amendments being introduced in the other...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Shared Prosperity Fund (2 Mar 2022)

Elizabeth Smith: ...that has already happened in his constituency of Moray, and that is vitally important. If we measure what is happening now in the levelling up work, we see that some really good programmes are giving additional money, which is on top of anything that would come from Barnett consequentials. It is giving us that additional say, and that is extremely important. I will deal with a few of the...

Sanctions (1 Mar 2022)

Michael Ellis: I am going to make a little progress and then I will give way. Sanctions announced by the UK and our allies are already having an impact. Yesterday, the rouble dropped 40% of its value, before closing 25% down; central bank interest rates have more than doubled, from 9% to 20%; international businesses are quickly divesting, as we have been hearing in the media; and the rouble is now trading...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Climate Assembly (1 Mar 2022)

Michael Matheson: we can explore and develop that further through our forthcoming land reform bill. I am sure that the member would also recognise that, at this stage, it would be inappropriate for me to give the details of a piece of legislation before it is introduced in Parliament, but she can be assured that we intend to take a very ambitious approach to land reform in that legislation.

Scottish Parliament: Torness Nuclear Power Station (24 Feb 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...position, as ever—details of these matters. In relation to the 98 per cent, where exactly does he think that that figure comes from? It comes from the assessment through National Grid. Let me give some of the details. Scotland is currently a net electricity exporter. In 2020, Scotland exported 20.4TWh of electricity, which is the equivalent of powering every household in Scotland for 26...

Scottish Parliament: Local Government Funding Settlement (Dundee City Council) (23 Feb 2022)

Michael Marra: ...outlined to the committee their on-going concerns about short-term interventions due to the lack of security of Government funding, such as that in my home city of Dundee. Can the minister give assurances to those providers? Does it remain his Government’s policy that pupil equity funding should not be used to backfill any cuts that result from the lack of available local authority resource?

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (22 Feb 2022)

...that, yesterday, the UK Government would set out in detail the testing infrastructure that it intended to retain and the funding that would accompany that. Yesterday, I had two conversations with Michael Gove; between those conversations, a UK Cabinet meeting was postponed because its members were still having conflict among themselves. I deeply regret that, because it has a knock-on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Adoption and Children Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Feb 2022)

Carál Ní Chuilín: best wishes to you and your family. It is a worrying time. I, too, remember the legislation in 2010. Indeed, Michelle O'Neill, Sue Ramsey and I were on the Health Committee. You should talk to Michael McGimpsey about that some time. It is good that it has eventually come to the Assembly, albeit there have been many setbacks. Every member of our Health Committee has come to the...

Local Government Finance (England) (9 Feb 2022)

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail (9 Feb 2022)

Jenny Gilruth: Almost a year ago, on 17 March 2021, the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Michael Matheson, advised Parliament that, at the conclusion of the current franchise, ScotRail services would be provided within the public sector by the operator of last resort: an arm’s-length company owned and controlled by the Scottish Government. The current franchising system was clearly no longer fit for...

Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff Appointment (7 Feb 2022)

Michael Ellis: ...responsibilities. He remains a member of the Cabinet and is not a special adviser. The Prime Minister is expanding on the already cross-cutting role of the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and giving the chief of staff enhanced, ministerial authority to promote levelling up while also playing a senior co-ordinating role in No. 10 under the direction of the Prime Minister. There are...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: UK Relations with EU: AUKUS (7 Feb 2022)

Michael Ellis: Following our withdrawal from the European Union, the UK is able to pursue an independent foreign, trade and security policy. As set out in ‘The Benefits of Brexit’, this gives us greater flexibility to pursue the UK’s international objectives: to sit at the heart of a network of like-minded countries, defend human rights and uphold global norms. This new and agile approach is...

Building Safety Bill - Second Reading (2 Feb 2022)

Lord Blencathra: ...personal interest as a leaseholder of a flat near here, which will qualify for some fire remedial works and was built by one of the big four, who collectively raked in almost £4 billion in 2020. I give a warm welcome to the Bill, particularly the creation of a regulator. However, of particular interest to me are the parts on high-risk buildings and other safety measures. While I welcome...

Levelling Up (2 Feb 2022)

Michael Gove: ...Brabin, the Mayor of West Yorkshire, who said there is “lots to be pleased about” in it, and the Mayor of South Yorkshire, who said on Sunday that he warmly welcomed the support that we were giving to Sheffield and that it was “much needed recognition of the potential” of that great city. I am glad that the hon. Lady is in good Labour company in welcoming the White Paper. The hon....

Scottish Parliament: Nuclear Energy Sector (Meetings) (2 Feb 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...a wider engagement. If members of the nuclear energy sector wish to engage with us in helping to shape the just transition report that will go alongside our energy strategy, I am more than happy to give the reassurance that they will have an opportunity to feed into that particular process.

Tackling Fraud and Preventing Government Waste (1 Feb 2022)

Michael Ellis: prevent rogue company directors from escaping liability for their bounce back loans. So far, that has been used in respect of almost 62,000 companies holding loans worth £2.1 billion. We are giving the Insolvency Service new powers to disqualify rogue company directors and we have already introduced regulations that allow for greater scrutiny of pre-pack administrations. Crucially,...

British Sign Language Bill (28 Jan 2022)

Rosie Cooper: ...the Cabinet Office’s disability unit, who worked tirelessly and kept me sane as the fine details were being worked out—I am not famed for my patience. I also wish to thank those in my office, Michael Rout in particular, for the hard work they have done in keeping this all going and making sure that we got to today, when we are actually going to move it forward. Finally, and probably...
