Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 1 - Historical Inability of Mothers to Transmit Citizenship (19 Oct 2021)

Neil Coyle: I am not sure why the hon. Lady’s parents were concerned about Paris in particular, but the point is that they were able to make that choice. In these circumstances, children born and educated in this country who have never lived anywhere else do not have the right to decide whether they can go on a school trip. Returning to my point about the timeframes involved, the number of people...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 80 - Sharing anonymous health and social care information (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I thank colleagues for their contributions, which I thought were really good. This is an important area, and it is important that we give it a proper look. The points that the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire made about the different types of data were important, and the run-through of their benefits and disbenefits was well made. I know that we will get to them again when we debate future...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 69 - Meaning of “Accountable Person” Etc (19 Oct 2021)

Eddie Hughes: This group of amendments makes provisions on who the accountable person is for higher-risk building when the title to the building is held in commonhold. The commonhold association owns and manages the common parts of the building in accordance with the commonhold community statement framework. Amendment 48 ensures that the Bill is explicit in providing that where the title to the building is...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 79 - Information Standards (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I thought that might get more traction with you. I also take the opportunity on behalf of Opposition Members to pass our sincere condolences to Government Members and to pay tribute to our friend Sir David Amess. He was a wonderful man: funny, kind and caring. I say that now because my final conversation with him was about the Bill, which precluded me from joining him on a trip. He commended...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 62 - Meaning of “higher-risk building” etc (19 Oct 2021)

Ruth Cadbury: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Dowd. I echo the comments made across the Committee about our departed colleagues Mr Brokenshire and Sir David Amess. I rise to support amendment 12, which stands in my name and those of my hon. Friend the Member for Weaver Vale and the hon. Member for St Albans. I reinforce the point that risk to building safety should be defined by...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 (19 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: If I may, Sir Edward, I want to take time to acknowledge the tragic loss of Sir David Amess. He was a fellow Essex MP to me and my hon. Friend the Member for Castle Point. He was a truly beloved friend and colleague who served both Parliament and Southend West for nearly four decades with dedication and care. It is particularly poignant that we should be debating the Elections Bill at this...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 78 - Hospital patients with care and support needs: repeals etc (23 Sep 2021)

Edward Argar: I will endeavour to be relatively brisk; I think that we have covered some of the issues pertaining to the clause in our discussion of the hon. Gentleman’s amendment. The clause repeals legislative barriers to the discharge to assess model, in order to better align legislation with current best practice. During the pandemic, local authorities and the NHS developed innovative ways to support...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Sep 2021)

Patricia Cabral: Thank you for the question. Clause 9 proposes to amend and restrict a vital safeguard in British nationality law that was initially introduced with the aim of preventing and reducing childhood statelessness. It is important to note that the UK has international obligations in this area, so the existing safeguard implements those international obligations by enabling a child...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 57 - Levy on applications for building control approval in respect of higher-risk buildings (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am really pleased to speak both to the clause and to the amendment tabled by the hon. Member for Luton South. As someone who probably would not be here were it not for social housing, I completely agree with the sentiment behind her amendment and with most, if not all, of what she said about the need to build more social housing, and in particular, her point about improving the quality of...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Sep 2021)

Priscilla Dudhia: Without repeating what has already been said, we would like to highlight that, as well as distinguishing between refugees based on their mode of arrival, the Bill also distinguishes between refugees based on the point at which they claim asylum and punishes those who have not claimed asylum “without delay”. As an organisation that, as Alphonsine highlighted, supports a...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 68 - Procurement relations (23 Sep 2021)

Jo Gideon: I have listened with great interest to the points made by the hon. Lady and by the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston, but I do not recognise my NHS as being a sort of binary choice between public and private sectors. During the pandemic, we have seen the incredible work across sectors; I am glad that the shadow Minister mentioned the voluntary and community...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 67 - Regulations as to patient choice (23 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: This is an important clause and an important amendment. We have said on many occasions that we want a model that promotes collaboration, rather than competition, but in doing so it is important that we do not create 42 closed shops, where a patient has little agency over their care. That will not feel right for those individuals and it risks weakening a culture of the pursuit of excellence...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 47 - Insurance (23 Sep 2021)

Christopher Pincher: The hon. Lady makes a fair point. She will know that we often consult on secondary legislation before laying the regulations, so that there is time for the community, in its widest context, to give feedback on that legislation. Whether the regulations are subject to the affirmative or negative procedure, there is ample opportunity for Parliament and the House of Commons to consider them, have...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill (23 Sep 2021)

Rossella Pagliuchi-Lor: Thank you very much for this question, but I would like to start with a short statement, which will also cover that. It is, of course, one of the areas of particular interest and concern to us. You know, of course, that UNHCR has already published two sets of opinions: one on the policy document and the other on the Bill. I want to start by saying that we actually...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 66 - The NHS payment scheme (23 Sep 2021)

Karin Smyth: There is an army of accountants out there suddenly looking at their abacuses and speeding up the work they are doing. My hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham North mentioned coding. The basis on which we know how much things cost—we can then compare things, look at efficiency and so on—is coding. We know there has been some up-coding over the years, but we also know that it took a large...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 66 - The NHS payment scheme (23 Sep 2021)

Edward Argar: I would not prejudge the passage of the legislation and how the House might judge it, but I look forward to such a scheme being introduced expeditiously, if I may put it that way to the hon. Member. I hope I can also reassure the Committee in respect of amendment 107, which was not selected but raised issues pertinent to the clause more broadly. This is important. It is right that the...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 40 - Revocation etc of certain provision made under section 2(2) of ECA 1972 (23 Sep 2021)

Christopher Pincher: I would be happy enough to speak to clause 30 again, Mr Efford, although I am not sure that that is the desire of the Committee. My eloquence and possibly my effluence covered all bases. Clause 40 makes a technical but necessary provision to enable the revocation of out-of-date provisions in building regulations made under the European Communities Act 1972 as we modernise the regulations in...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 51 - Licensing of NHS foundation trusts (23 Sep 2021)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair this morning, Mrs Murray. I am glad you enjoyed Tuesday so much that you came back for another round. We will do our best to inform and entertain as we go along. I am grateful to the Minister for setting out the Department’s position on the clauses. We really need to have another go, don’t we, at trying to understand the landscape for foundation...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 - Voter identification (22 Sep 2021)

Cat Smith: I am very disappointed that the Minister has not been able to cover at least some of my questions. I am particularly concerned about victims of domestic violence, who are anonymous on the electoral roll if they have a letter from their local police. I urge the Minister to look seriously at that issue because some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our communities are likely to...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Schedule - Minor and consequential amendments (22 Sep 2021)

John Hayes: The hon. Gentleman has not only anticipated fully my preliminary remarks, but the essence of my amendment and my speech. I was about to say that my efforts are to improve the legislation and ease its passage to create the certainty and clarity I described. The hon. Gentleman will not necessarily know this, but as Minister for Security at the Home Office, I introduced the Prevent duty. Prevent...
