Scottish Parliament: Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Dec 2014)

Michael McMahon: ...that will place the interim Scottish welfare fund on a statutory basis. We know from the evidence that we took that the interim fund has been a benefit to many vulnerable people across Scotland. I repeat the minister’s reference to the comparison of the scheme with the DWP fund by Scott Robertson from Quarriers, who observed: “The comparison between the new system and the previous...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ...could be improved. I hope that the Government can accept that there are at least some points here that need to be looked at. The Minister then went through, as predicted, some of the various sections that we talked about. Most of them require an intent to cause distress or anxiety, or that the matter is grossly offensive, or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character. As I have said...

Public Bill Committee: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Clause 29 - Sections 25 to 28 etc: supplementary (23 Oct 2014)

Ian Murray: ...move amendment 76, in clause 29, page 25, line 26, at end insert— ‘(1A) Prior to secondary legislation making or amending the regulatory provision coming into force, the review set out in sections 25 to 28 and this section shall be subject to public consultation with specific reference to the views of businesses, business organisations, civic organisations and trades unions, and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Belfast Metropolitan Area Plan (8 Sep 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...the plan area.  Voluntary and community groups were engaged, and over 1,500 people attended the public meetings and focus groups.  Overall, that consultation process reflected a broad cross section of the people living in the plan area.  A report presenting a collation of the views expressed during the consultation process was published in April 2003.  The Department published the...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (21 Jul 2014)

Baroness Thornton: .... I appreciate that the Minister thinks it does but I have to say that some of us think that one or two things in this clause need some attention. I am not going to delay the House any further by repeating what they are. The Minister said that the Government thought they had the balance right all the way through. I think there are one or two things to do with context that suggest the...

Welfare Reform (Cumbria) (16 Jul 2014)

Jamie Reed: ...and accepted across the House. Those unable to work are disproportionately dependent on benefit rates and therefore, obviously—QED—feel the changes to benefits more acutely than any other section of society. The Government have estimated that, through the introduction of the personal independence payment, the claimant count will fall by 23% compared with the number on disability living...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jun 2014)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...area of law that principally has concerned me over the past 35 years, ever since I was privileged to follow the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, as Treasury Counsel in 1979, before undertaking 28 years of judicial servitude. Necessarily, at Second Reading, one must be selective in one’s focus, and I shall therefore confine myself to comparatively brief comments on four topics...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill (Programme) No. 2: New Clause 14 — Offences committed by disqualified drivers (12 May 2014)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend that it is important to review all the options. He has already made a powerful case for his preferred option in dealing with repeat offences of driving while disqualified, and I know he will continue to do so. I hope the review will give him and others the opportunity to make the case they wish to make. In view of that, I hope the hon. Member for Hammersmith will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 8 — Welsh rate of income tax (30 Apr 2014)

Christopher Chope: ...is proposed to implement the recommendations of the Silk Commission that the Welsh Government have the power to set different rates of tax for different income bands. Government amendments 22 to 28. Amendment 16, page 12, line 34, after ‘Assembly’, insert ‘and each House of Parliament’. Amendment 6, page 12, line 37, at end add— ‘(2) The Secretary of State shall review...

Care Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 — CQC thematic review of local authority commissioning practices (10 Mar 2014)

Norman Lamb: ...to the House the excellent review of the duty of candour by Professor Norman Williams and Sir David Dalton, which was published last week. We will consider the recommendations of the review—I repeat that I thought it was excellent—as we develop regulations to implement the duty of candour as a requirement for registration with the CQC. We are also enhancing the professional duty of...

Immigration Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (10 Feb 2014)

Baroness Barker: .... They used, for example, the international passenger survey data. They did not give us any actual new information about use of the NHS by migrants. In the quantitative research, researchers repeatedly put caveats around the findings of their model, saying that, “any point is just a likely value in a plausible range”. That is to say, the much publicised figure of £1.76 billion, which...

Immigration Bill: New Clause 11 — Supplementary provision (30 Jan 2014)

Sarah Teather: ..., and a great deal of good and innovative thinking has been happening. It would be fantastic if good practice in one area of the Home Office was to extend to other areas of the Department. A 28-day limit would sharpen the mind of the Home Office and encourage it to get on and do that. Amendment 57 would ensure that people had an opportunity to challenge their detention by ensuring that it...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (18 Dec 2013)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...that there is a scientific means of arriving at a figure, any more than I suspect the Labour Government used a scientific method to reach their figures for spending limits and thresholds in 2000. I repeat that the balance we seek is one that will secure greater transparency but not lead to unnecessary regulation, particularly taking into account the concerns that have been expressed by a...

House of Lords: Size — Motion to Take Note (12 Dec 2013)

Lord Dykes: ...the fact that this Chamber is literally too large with some calmness at the moment—although I hope not too much. It is around the size of the entire European Parliament, which represents 28 member states. The latest text of the Bill, which began its Second Reading before June 2010, in February 2009, added the helpful provision of non-attendance producing disqualification. Whatever the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: "Restricted premises orders: no tobacco in retail area (3 Dec 2013)

Roy Beggs: ...in Scotland and, I believe, the Irish Republic, a very lenient sentence of a few days has been issued.  That is no real penalty.  So, I certainly support the concept of having a minimum period of 28 days and a maximum period of three years for very severe or repeat offences; that is appropriate.  It is important to give a message that this is important in protecting the health of our...

Energy Bill — Third Reading (19 Nov 2013)

Baroness Verma: ...would undertake reporting measures once any decarbonisation target range had been set. This would supplement those reporting measures that are already included within Part 1 of the Bill. I repeat what I said on Report, which was that, “where carbon intensity is reported to have increased year on year for three consecutive years, the Government will explain the reasons why, and, where...

Backbench Business — Private Members’ Bills: Cycling (2 Sep 2013)

Maria Eagle: ...for cycling infrastructure. The priority for investment to support cycling must be dedicated separated infrastructure to create safe routes. The focus has too often been on painting a thin section at the side of the road a different colour. Genuinely separated cycle routes are vital not only to improve safety but, as we have heard from many hon. Members, to build confidence and to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Jul 2013)

the Bishop of Leicester: ...so-called protections for schools or teachers from the need to promote same-sex marriage. Many in this Chamber and outside, as I know from many conversations, still remain haunted by the ghosts of Section 28. To anyone who is feeling so haunted this evening, I offer the rites of exorcism. Let me be crystal clear: this amendment is categorically not about turning back the clock to those...

Opposition Day — [Unallotted Day] — Disabled People (10 Jul 2013)

Michael Meacher: ...cumulative benefit changes. If Scope and Demos can do a cumulative impact assessment, why cannot the Government? That is a staggering expropriation from arguably the most deprived and disadvantaged section of the entire population and it is perhaps worth rehearsing quickly the range of the cumulative impact: the incapacity benefit reassessment; the reassessment of the personal independence...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (24 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: ...and others, for addressing those concerns, which are well argued and strongly felt. Our amendment is equally strongly felt, but it is much narrower in its remit. It is more specific and relates to Section 403 of the Education Act 1996. We hope that, because of the narrowness of its focus, it will be acceptable to the Government. I can assure them that they have nothing to lose by accepting...
