Responding to MPs’ Queries: DWP Performance (6 Dec 2022)

Peter Grant: ...from Members of Parliament. I was particularly keen that the debate title should cover not simply correspondence, but all forms of communication—or non-communication—because the Department’s repeated failure to put in place a reliable and efficient way for MPs and our caseworkers to phone with urgent inquiries and speak to someone who actually understands the case is a recurring...

National Security Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2022)

Baroness Ludford: ...hostile foreign Governments, including from China and Russia. But, as my noble friend Lord Wallace of Saltaire said, it is absurd to ask us to debate the Bill without publishing the redacted sections of the ISC’s Russia report, which the committee recommended should be released. As the NGO Spotlight on Corruption said, the Bill does not address the hole in the regime for keeping foreign...

Housing Market - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2022)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: .... We spoke about that last night and I do not want to talk about it much more, other than to say that the Secretary of State gave a very clear Statement in the other place yesterday, which I repeated in this Chamber.

Priti Patel: ...basics, every neighbourhood in England and Wales will have a named and contactable police officer and league tables have been introduced for 999 call answering times.

Identity and Language (Northern Ireland) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 25 (6 Jul 2022)

Lord Caine: ...Baroness’s Amendment 27 seeks to give a further area where step-in powers could be exercised—namely, in relation to strategies relating to the Irish language and Ulster Scots as set out by Section 28D of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.

50 Years of Pride in the UK (30 Jun 2022)

Anneliese Dodds: ...two years later, of course, our opponents proactively campaigned against that position on LGBT+ rights at the general election and then, as many speakers have said, followed Margaret Thatcher’s section 28, banning councils and schools from the promotion of homosexuality as, in those bigoted words, “a pretended family relationship”. It was, of course, the last Labour Government who...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Viscount Bridgeman: ...to a divorce by their husbands. At the outset, I pay tribute to the work of the noble Baroness, Lady Cox, who has been tireless in her efforts to improve the lot of this potentially vulnerable section of society. She is unable to speak in this debate as she has committed to speaking elsewhere in the debate on the humble Address. This is not an insignificant issue. In 2017, a Channel 4...

Building Safety Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A (26 Apr 2022)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...to give enfranchised leaseholders the same rights as unenfranchised leaseholders. My noble friend has just explained the perverse incentive that that would have resulted in.

Lord Rooker: ...that into the long grass”, he asked, “How long is the grass?” and the answer came back: “Can you see the giraffe?” That is what I am trying to avoid.

Laboratory Animals: Animal Welfare Act — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (7 Feb 2022)

Martyn Day: My hon. Friend makes a very powerful point. Why should we be frightened of a fact-based approach? As well as repeated forced feeding, they are forced to inhale substances for between 28 and 90 days to measure the effects of repeat exposure on the liver, kidneys, lungs, heart and nervous system. Some animals are also bred to be bled, as has been mentioned previously, with a facility granted...
