M4 Upgrading: South Wales — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (14 Nov 2018)

Stephen Crabb: ...within 12 months of forming a government.” Welsh Labour’s manifesto at that election stated: “We will deliver a relief road for the M4”, and its general election manifesto just last year repeated that promise to deliver a “new relief road for the M4”. Politicians from both major parties and at both ends of the M4 have campaigned for and made promises about the upgrade project....

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. Perhaps I may use this opportunity to clarify one exchange that I had with his colleague, the noble Baroness, Lady Goldie, on 20 July. We had anticipated this White Paper last week. As I am sure the Minister will recall, he said on 12 July at col. 996 that the White Paper would be published “next week”, which of course would have been...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Andrew Bowie: ...to silence the voice of Scotland last week by dividing 11 times on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. I am grateful for the opportunity to give up my evening to talk about important issues. Section 28(7) of the Scotland Act 1998 reads as follows: this Act “does not affect the power of the Parliament of the United Kingdom to make laws for Scotland.” The White Paper, “Scotland’s...

Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Statement (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. I am not sure whether to thank him for the name check, which was a fairly broad interpretation of a somewhat more complex legal point. However, clearly, the Statement was made in the other place in response to the failure to have an adequate debate on the Lords amendments and following on, too, from the stunt of the SNP walking out yesterday....

Scottish Parliament: Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (18 Apr 2018)

Patrick Harvie: ...had begun in Scotland. There were debates at Westminster on equalising the age of consent—proposals for equality that were rejected by MPs at that time—and it was just a few years since section 28 had been created. There has been much progress, but it has been by no means an easy or straightforward journey, and the case for equality has been fought against every step of the way. To...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Mar 2018)

Michael Russell: ...bill contains an exhaustive list of types of deficiency, and those had tests of necessity added to them by Opposition amendments at stage 2. For example, the type of deficiency that is described in section 11(2)(d) now exists only where it is “necessary” to “make provision ... in connection with” EU “arrangements which ... no longer exist” as a result of Brexit. Those are both...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (7 Mar 2018)

James Kelly: ...there are issues about legislative competence, and serious challenges for scrutiny and transparency. Mike Rumbles has raised concerns about the regulations that are to be passed to ministers under section 13, and there are concerns that too much power would be put in the hands of ministers. Patrick Harvie spoke about section 17 and consent with regard to subordinate legislation. Graham...

Role of Women in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (5 Feb 2018)

Baroness Hodgson of Abinger: ...and Security and a member of other organisations specialising in women’s issues, as set out in the register. We have already heard many statistics about women in Parliament but some are worth repeating. A total of 489 women have been elected to the Commons since 1918. At the general election last year, 208 women MPs were elected: 32% of all MPs and a record high. Prior to 1987 women had...

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Vagrancy and Homelessness: Cleethorpes (17 Jan 2018)

Martin Vickers: ...willing to put money in the cup and, therefore, to act in a way that was not necessarily in Lisa’s best interests. She has breached her bail condition not to go on to St Peter’s Avenue and is repeatedly to be seen in the area. There is almost always a beggar sitting next to the cash machine outside the Sainsbury’s Local in the avenue, which many constituents find intimidating....

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...Committee put it much better than I can: “We draw attention to the number and breadth of the delegated powers in this Bill. This is an increasingly common feature of legislation which, as we have repeatedly stated, causes considerable concern. The Government’s desire to future-proof legislation, both in light of Brexit and the rapidly changing nature of digital technologies, must be...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Catherine McKinnell: ...those who were accused of his murder. The cause of Lee’s death was given as respiratory failure due to multiple severe injuries that were inflicted upon him at the house in Kenton Bar between 28 May and 5 June 2015. The injuries included fractures to his nose and jaw, the fracture of 24 ribs and damage to underlying organs, after he had been drugged with a combination of morphine,...

Non-Domestic Rating (Alteration of Lists and Appeals) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Regret (11 Sep 2017)

the Earl of Lytton: ...in the year. Noble Lords will know that the Valuation Office Agency, or VOA, is an executive agency of HMRC with responsibility for compiling the rating list on which business rates are based. Section 41 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988 stipulates that the list shall be accurate and that revaluations shall take place every five years. Business rates raise, I believe, around £28...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Lord Beecham: ...of your Lordships’ House will wonder why neither the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, nor the noble and learned Lord, Lord Keen, was appointed. Had either featured in the recent reshuffle, the justice section of the Government’s programme would perhaps have been less of a disappointment. Faced, as we have heard from no fewer than seven noble Lords, with a prolonged and growing crisis in the...

Scottish Parliament: Included in the Main Campaign (28 Mar 2017)

Alexander Burnett: ...education. Its 22-step journey is admirable and I support its aims full-heartedly. There have been many good points raised in the debate and, although I agree with them, I am keen not to spend time repeating them. It is simply not good enough that 80 per cent of the education workforce think that we are not getting it right for every child. I would like to look at how we can fix that...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Reoffenders: Greater London (14 Mar 2017)

David Burrowes: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many adult and juvenile repeat offenders in London who have not received a non-custodial sentence since Section 28 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 came into effect have had (a) more than one previous knife conviction and (b) a previous conviction for a violent offence in addition to their previous knife crime conviction.

Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Education relating to relationships and sex (7 Mar 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...that we include it in the modern training that we give our children. Not least, I want to raise the concerns of teachers from Walthamstow, who said to me that they still live under the spectre of section 28 and the idea that there are things that they cannot talk to children about. The Minister knows my concern that use of the word “appropriate” in his legislation may raise that worry...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Blair of Boughton: ...in doing so I declare my interest in policing matters. I also wish to pay tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Prashar, who chaired the relevant sub-committee that produced the report. I will not repeat what is set out in the report or what was said in the debate other than to say that reading either brings into focus the striking unanimity of view by witnesses from the police and the...

Scottish Parliament: LGBT History Month Scotland 2017 (21 Feb 2017)

Patrick Harvie: ...in power, which has continued since that time and is getting worse all the time. Around that time, we saw some of the same things happening in this country. My own coming-out story began just after section 28 had been introduced by the Thatcher Government, when repeal seemed a long way away. There were marches and demonstrations to complain about, object to and expose the deliberate way in...

Petition - Sentencing for Death by Dangerous Driving: Rifleman Lee Bagley: MOD Duty of Care (25 Jan 2017)

Adrian Bailey: ...System. The frequency of visits will depend on the needs of the individual, but at a minimum soldiers will be visited once every 14 days, with their recovery plan and needs accessed every 28 days.” After a couple of months’ treatment, it should have been obvious that Lee Bagley’s injuries required the assignment of a PRO, but that did not happen. On 27 October 2010, Lee Bagley was...

Pension Schemes Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Freud: ...how the interests of the scheme members will be protected if, in the future, the scheme experiences a triggering event—an event that could put the scheme at risk. The strategy must include a section on the scheme’s levels of administration charges in a manner that will be specified in regulations in due course, as well as any such other information as may be set out in those...
