Did you mean Theresa any?

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Andrew Percy: ...I did last year, and will clearly last longer than I did in the job. I also thank other colleagues who have taken part in this debate. This has been an incredible debate. It was great to hear the many testimonies of survivors themselves. We heard about Rudi Oppenheimer from the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg), and about his constituent Oscar, a refugee from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Theresa May: My hon. Friend raises an important issue. He is absolutely right that for too many people loneliness is the sad reality of modern life, and we know that loneliness has an impact not only on mental health, but on physical health. Later today I will be pleased to host a reception at No. 10 Downing Street for the Jo Cox Foundation to look at the issue. I think that the work that Jo Cox started,...

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Lord Liddle: ...the noble Lord’s optimism that we are on course for some kind of beneficial outcome, but I fear not. It is worth remembering that the soundbite, “No deal is better than a bad deal”, was one of Theresa May’s more politically misjudged lines in her Lancaster House speech last January. It was the Prime Minister who gave life to this soundbite and opened up in the...

Iraq: Religious and Ethnic Minorities - Question for Short Debate (11 Jan 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ..., Lady Anelay, referred to this—Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared the country’s war against Daesh officially over. Daesh no longer holds significant territory in Iraq or Syria and, as Theresa May acknowledged at the time, while it is failing, it is not yet defeated. Daesh still poses a threat to Iraq, including from over the Syrian border. The key to the...

Forestry in England — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (11 Jan 2018)

John McNally: ...debate. I wish a belated happy new year to all. It is good to see members of the Woodland Trust present. I will try to be fairly brief and get to the end of this speech without losing my voice. Many enlightening points have been made during the debate. The hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Angela Smith) made good points on how to merge forestry and farming. She also talked about...

Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Jan 2018)

Theresa May: There are many voices across the House, including from the right hon. Gentleman’s party, who have been encouraging me to ensure that we have better integration between health and social care. I am pleased that we have recognised this by making the Department of Health now the Department of Health and Social Care. That has been recognised by Age UK, which has said that this is a...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (9 Jan 2018)

Baroness Bertin: ...the difficult and often dangerous decision to upend your entire life and potentially that of your young family, you need to know that a better and safer place awaits. It is for this reason that many women, quite understandably, put off the decision, and that has tragically cost lives on so many occasions. I sincerely hope this Bill gives victims the reassurance they need and helps them...

Parole Board and Victim Support (9 Jan 2018)

Theresa Villiers: ...learned of Mr Worboys’ impending release from TV coverage. I welcome his assurance that that will be investigated and reform will be considered, but can he tell us the size of the problem? How many other victims have found themselves suffering in that completely unacceptable way?

Scottish Parliament: Article 50 Withdrawal Process (9 Jan 2018)

Pauline McNeill: ...agreement in the coming months and years, so we have a relatively short time in which to conclude how the agreements should be shaped. We cannot allow that to be driven by the hard Brexiteers in Theresa May’s Cabinet—those who think that the colour of their passport is a significant issue and that changing it is a benefit of leaving the EU. Rather, I hope that the more sensible...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Mandelson: ...political cycles, not just through one Government. It is one thing having a long time horizon—this White Paper’s horizon is 2030—but quite another to develop a genuinely long-term approach, one that will take us well beyond 2030, which is not actually very far away. Look at Germany and France. There is continuity in their systems when it comes to business and investment...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Intelligence Oversight (20 Dec 2017)

Theresa May: ...evidence sessions with the Heads of Agencies and Secretaries of State is testament to the quality of UK Parliamentary intelligence oversight. The report includes twenty-six conclusions and recommendations, many of which the Government supports and is already implementing, such as continuing efforts to tackle the extremist narrative, working with the technology industry to promote secure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (20 Dec 2017)

Theresa May: ...who will not get a break a Christmas and will be working very hard. Of course, it is not only our NHS staff who will be working hard this Christmas; it is also those in our emergency services and many others who go to work on Christmas day so that others can enjoy their Christmas day. We thank all of them. The right hon. Gentleman asks about preparations for winter. I can say this to him:...

House of Lords: Lord Speaker’s Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (19 Dec 2017)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: ...of conferring legitimacy on an assembly, they are not the only one. However, as the Burns report and today’s debate demonstrate, there is one aspect of our existence which has to change. There are simply too many of us. With almost 100 speakers in today’s debate, there are inevitably many points of view, but very little disagreement on that essential principle. In view of that,...

European Council - Statement (18 Dec 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...own future. Important discussions took place on co-ordinated efforts to stem illegal migration; the need to increase the resilience of the economic and monetary union; education and culture; and climate change. While Theresa May confirmed the UK’s intention to remain a part of Erasmus+ until 2020, the EU27 took decisions on the longer-term future of that programme and many others....

European Council (18 Dec 2017)

Theresa May: There are many occasions in this House when Members on the hon. Lady’s Benches, and indeed sometimes on my Benches, stand up and promote the primacy of this House and of Parliament. As Members of Parliament, obviously, we have a responsibility to be here in this House, although my hon. Friend the Minister balanced the requirements of being able both to represent the United Kingdom and...

UK Borders: Surveillance - Question (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, in April last year the then Home Secretary, Theresa May, confirmed in the other place that in 2016-17 the Border Force agency’s revenue budget, which covers staffing, would be 0.4% less compared with 2015-16. However, the Government insist that Border Force spending has been protected because spending on technology such as electronic passport gates has increased. Can the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Theresa May: ...service tomorrow, and I am sure I speak for Members across the House when I say that it remains at the forefront of our minds as a truly unimaginable tragedy that should never have happened. Many who survived the fire lost everything that night, and I can assure the House that we continue to do everything we can to support those affected and to take the necessary steps to make sure it can...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Taylor Review (12 Dec 2017)

Theresa Villiers: Insecure working practices at Uber enable the company to engage in a pricing policy that many of my constituents consider to be predatory and designed to drive out competition. What more can the Government do to improve working practices at Uber and ensure fairer competition between taxis and private hire vehicles?

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Theresa May: ..., and I set them out further and in some more detail in the speech I gave in Florence. Meanwhile, the Labour party has had 12 different Brexit plans. In fact, the right hon. Gentleman has had so many Brexit plans he cannot even reach alignment with himself. To answer the right hon. Gentleman’s questions, he started off by saying he wanted to uphold the referendum result. Later in his...

Trade and Customs Policy - Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2017)

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, as the first of the winding-up speakers, I want to say that I have sat through many debates in this House, including in the position of Minister, and I do not think I have ever heard a debate that was more informed, contained more expert knowledge, raised more challenges and took a more intelligent approach to a crucial issue. It has been a privilege to sit through today’s...
