Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints (4 Nov 2020)

Andy Wightman: ...frankness could be compromised to the detriment of good government. In recent years, the Government has refused to publish legal advice on the legality of a second independence referendum without a section 30 order, and it has refused, in response to requests from the Law Society of Scotland, to publish its legal advice in relation to the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity)...

Coronavirus Act 2020: Temporary Provisions - Motion to Take Note (28 Sep 2020)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...and were intended to authorise only provisions which were “urgent yet minor in scope and effect”? I asked him why the Government were not using the Civil Contingencies Act, which, under Section 22(3), empowers Ministers to “make provision of any kind that could be made by Act of Parliament”. Examples given in the legislation include regulations which prohibit movement to or from a...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 26 (13 Jul 2020)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: I thank all noble Lords for their comments, and their discipline in not repeating the same remarks over and over again. The noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, made a very good point about how local areas and local partners will cope with all this and their capacity to cope if things go wrong. We have been very clear from the outset that, if things do go wrong, if licensees do not enforce their...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Offence of non-fatal strangulation (16 Jun 2020)

Alex Chalk: ...of behaviour amounting to an offence of controlling or coercive behaviour; I shall come back to that in a moment. There is also assault occasioning actual bodily harm, grievous bodily harm, or section 20 assault, and grievous bodily harm with intent, or section 18 assault. I want to step back for a moment to consider a non-domestic context, just to make some of this clear. For the sake of...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Consequential etc. provision (11 Jun 2020)

Stuart McDonald: I beg to move amendment 16, in clause 4, page 3, line 28, at end insert— “(11) Subject to subsection (13), regulations made under subsection (1) must make provision for ensuring that all qualifying persons have within the United Kingdom the rights set out in Title II of Part 2 of the Withdrawal Agreement, the EEA EFTA separation agreement and the Swiss citizens’ rights agreement...

Children and Young Persons (10 Jun 2020)

Tim Loughton: ...sign that something was going wrong at home on a safeguarding issue. They could then pass that information on to social workers and others. I want to touch briefly on the 10 areas. First, on section 28 and the regulations about visits—which I think I overhauled back in 2010—these are now to take place “as soon as is reasonably practicable”. I am not going to delude myself that it...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 20 (21 Jan 2020)

Lord Hope of Craighead: ...about it that would attract the attention of the judiciary. I have lived with the Sewel convention for a very long time, particularly with the amendment to the Scotland Act, now enshrined in Section 28(8). One of the points made by the Smith commission was that it wanted the Sewel convention to be given statutory effect. I am afraid that that battle was lost because, as Section 28(8) of...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 (8 Jan 2020)

Robin Walker: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Report pursuant to section 3(5) of the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019, which was laid before this House on Thursday 19 December. I am taking this debate on behalf of the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, who is currently in Belfast in talks with the Northern Ireland parties and working towards getting Stormont back...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...service and the Prison Service are unable to cope properly with the existing numbers. If you add to that number, you are adding to those pressures and problems. The tighter rules on carrying knives repeat the same rhetoric we have heard for years and fail to address the fear on the streets and the lack of a visible police presence, which can lead many to arm themselves for so called...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019: Section 3(5) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Duncan of Springbank: ...be happening. The Government’s response to the consultation will be published in due course. Discussions with interested parties will continue as the regulations are taken forward in line with Section 9 of the Act concerning the 2018 UN CEDAW report. On the presumption of non-prosecution and Troubles prosecution guidance, reforming the legacy system in Northern Ireland remains a priority...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 (28 Oct 2019)

Gavin Robinson: ...rehearse arguments from a fortnight ago. The recurring nature of these reports means that important issues for Northern Ireland get aired quite often in this House, and there is no need for me to repeat my speech of two weeks ago, but I want to re-emphasise one point to the Secretary of State. Having sought and received an assurance that we would get written confirmation of the questions...

Report Pursuant to Sections 3(1), 3(6), 3(7), 3(8), 3(9) and 3(10) the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness O'Loan: ...disappear. Six weeks tomorrow, there will be no regulation of abortion in Northern Ireland up to the point of viability. The presumption, which is rebuttable in law, is that viability occurs at 28 weeks. We will be back to the position we were in in the mid-19th century before the Offences against the Person Act 1861. I do not know how the Government got themselves into this position....

Education (15 May 2019)

Gordon Marsden: ...and Research Act 2017 (Cooperation and Information Sharing) Regulations 2018 in another Delegated Legislation Committee relating to this Act. As part of that debate, I referenced the fact that section 63 of the Higher Education and Research Act 2017, to which the regulations refer, does not place a limitation on the type of information that may be provided, and therefore that it could...

Devolution of Welfare — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (9 Apr 2019)

John Lamont: ...enthusiastic about accepting these powers. The Scotland Act devolves the ability to top up reserved benefits, provide short-term payments and create new non-reserved benefits. UK Ministers have repeatedly made their view clear that these powers allow the Scottish Government to compensate women affected by the equalisation of the state pension age. The Scottish Government do not often...

Trade Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 27 (13 Mar 2019)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I add my support to Amendment 28. I hope not to repeat too many of the points already made. The Minister may have seen the letter from Mike Russell, dated 11 March 2019, to which the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, referred. He draws attention to the fact that the Scottish Parliament is not prepared to give its consent to the Trade Bill as presently drafted, which is a matter of some...

Transport Infrastructure: Essex — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Mar 2019)

Will Quince: ...—and traffic volume is set to increase further year on year. Some 24% of the road is regularly congested. For five hours a day, journeys are delayed in both directions. For six hours a day, sections of the road carry more vehicles than it was built for. As my right hon. Friend pointed out, we have an increasing collision trend, which should worry us all. There is a high rate of serious...

Immigration Procedures - Question for Short Debate (14 Feb 2019)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: ...decisions and how those appeals have increased in number over the years. In 2005, 17% of appeals were approved by the tribunal or the higher court. In 2009 that was up to 29%; in 2014, it was 28%; in 2015, 35%; and in 2016, 40%. We are assured that the Government are attempting to improve the situation, but nothing changes. This results in a destruction of confidence in the whole system....

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...worth rewinding briefly to see how we got here. Of course, the centrifugal forces within the UK predate the Brexit referendum, as the noble Lord, Lord Lisvane, said in his opening remarks. This was repeated by the noble Lords, Lord Judd and Lord Chartres. We saw the growth in political support for Scottish independence when the SNP unexpectedly won overall control at Holyrood, and in...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (22 Nov 2018)

Baroness Ludford: My Lords, I, too, thank the Leader of the House for repeating the Statement. There was a hope that an expansion of the political declaration would deliver enlightenment, but going from seven pages to 26 has illustrated even better how thin and inadequate our prospective future relationship is as impotent rule takers. The claim that we will make our own laws in our own Parliament is one of the...

Self-identification of Gender — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (21 Nov 2018)

Hannah Bardell: ...consultation received a huge number of responses, more than 60% of which were in favour of the proposals. On number of occasions, the hon. Gentleman spoke in over-simplified terms. I must repeat what I said in my intervention: that is not helpful because deepening and expanding the debate about those concerns is vital. The hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran) made an...
