Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 34 - Industry Competence (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am not sure whether the question was to me or to the Minister, but I will give my opinion, as I am sure the Minister will give his. From my perspective—you are being very indulgent, Mr Efford, so thank you—what clause 34 does for productivity is to push the point on accreditation and on being sure that people have qualifications, so that a young person thinking about where to go hears,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of witnesses (21 Sep 2021)

Tom Pursglove: Q In terms of the broader measures that we are seeking to introduce in the Bill, how pressing do residents in your communities think they are?

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of Witness (21 Sep 2021)

Tony Smith: That is a great question. It is called the pull factor. A number of books have been written by people probably better qualified than I am that talk about what that pull factor is. I think there are number of reasons why people would quite like to live in the UK rather than in mainland Europe. Personally, I think the main one is communities. We have a significantly diverse range...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 34 - Arrangements for exercise of public health functions (21 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: As the Minister says, the clauses relate to public health. We might previously have anticipated that the hon. Member for Bury St Edmunds (Jo Churchill) would have fielded them, but obviously she has moved Departments. I want to take this opportunity to put on record my thanks to her for her service as Public Health Minister. We worked well together, particularly in the proceedings on the...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 30 - Higher-risk buildings etc (21 Sep 2021)

Mike Amesbury: Again, we accept the provisions in the clause giving the Welsh Government the desired and important flexibility particularly for buildings that are at risk. Buildings at risk have caused considerable debate and the Minister has referred to the original recommendations by Dame Judith Hackitt. There has been lots of debate in the built environment and among key witnesses. I know that members of...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 33 - Report on assessing and meeting workforce needs (21 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair once again, Mrs Murray, and to follow the thoughtful contribution by the hon. Member for Arfon. The hon. Gentleman’s points about interdependency are important. Of course, we cherish and build on the devolved settlement, but we understand that we still have important relationships, not least at our borders. I thought that his point about...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of Witness (21 Sep 2021)

Jon Featonby: The issues with accommodation and the challenges the Home Office faces in providing it are well known and serious, and there is no simple solution to many of them. Some of the problems around the shortage of accommodation were caused by the covid pandemic. We welcome the Home Office’s move at the start of the pandemic not to evict people from asylum accommodation, but that...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 21 - NHS England’s financial responsibilities (16 Sep 2021)

Karin Smyth: I echo my hon. Friend’s words. The Minister is going to have to go back to the drawing board on this, although I can see what the clauses are trying to do. Financial directors I have spoken to commend the idea of working together under some sort of shared control. We have had controls before, but clauses 21 to 24 —I may be straying beyond my knowledge of the writing of Bills and financial...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 20 - Integrated care partnerships and strategies (16 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: Amendment 83 builds on my hon. Friend’s argument about creating some balance between the integrated care partnership and the integrated care board, so I will not repeat it. I simply underscore the fact that the ICPs have the money, power and accountability at the moment, but there is a risk that they become a closed shop and not bodies about integration at all. We are told that integrated...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 19 - General Functions (16 Sep 2021)

Edward Argar: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingswood for tabling his amendments and allowing us to have this debate. As has been mentioned, he was both my distinguished predecessor in this role and a very distinguished Minister for universities and research. Amendments 7 and 8 relate to requiring ICBs to work together with higher education institutions and to their research duty....

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 2 - Duties of students’ unions (16 Sep 2021)

John Martin McDonnell: The word “any” is key. To give one other concrete example, I have a large Muslim community in my constituency and an Ahmadiyya Muslim community. The majority Muslim community do not recognise Ahmadiyyas as Muslims. The word “any” means that we could have a situation where one group is insisting on using a particular room, invited by an individual, which then offends others. There is...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Sep 2021)

Fazilet Hadi: Huge concerns. If we think about who does not have a driving licence or a passport, who does not have a blue badge or a bus pass or a railcard, we are asking those people who have obviously found it unsurmountable for various reasons—those reasons could be cognitive, sensory, digital exclusion; all sorts of reasons—to apply for a card. We are asking the most disadvantaged...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Christopher Pincher: I certainly agree with my hon. Friend the Member for West Bromwich West that I should not be led down the path of discussing the planning Bill, for two reasons: first, that feast is yet to be enjoyed by the Committee and other Members of the House; and secondly, Mr Davies, I am sure that you would quickly draw me back to the path of procedural righteousness. However, I can say that in terms...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 16 - Commissioning primary care services etc (16 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Elliott. I wish to speak to amendments 28 and 29, and will also briefly address a couple of brief points relating to the clause. I am grateful for the Minister’s response—it is handy to know in advance the likely arguments against the amendments. I referred to the amendments late on Tuesday afternoon, with regard to private company...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 1 - Duties of registered higher education providers (16 Sep 2021)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I agree. I am sure that the Minister will point to clause 1 and proposed new section A2(2) of the Higher Education and Research Act 2017, which provides that universities must create a code of practice that considers the conduct required of people speaking at the university. She may say that that is sufficient, but given that the Bill provides for a code of practice, it is a perfect time to...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Sep 2021)

Cat Smith: Q To break that down a little bit further, I have seen evidence that Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities are also less likely to have ID. The free local voter card, proposed by this legislation, looks set to be delivered by local authorities. Do you have any insight into how people who are not resident in the same local authority for any length of time might have their access to those ID...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Schedule 2 - Integrated care boards: constitution etc (16 Sep 2021)

Karin Smyth: I agree, and we will probably all have examples through the primary care networks of practices that were not in old houses but that had perhaps had a LIFT scheme or another new development. In my constituency, the Bridge View Medical practice was able to have a flow through the building and move patients downstairs because it had a large, fairly new building. The pandemic has shown that in an...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Member for Weaver Vale makes an interesting point, but I come back to my point about the environment we are dealing with from a legislative point of view. As an esteemed former member of Manchester City Council, he is much more experienced than me, and he understands the issues. We are crossing into the boundaries of planning reform as well. I do not disagree that that needs to be...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Rob Connelly: I suppose the way we get that is from the number of complaints about the process and, bearing in mind our electorate, we get very few. A lot of complaints come via members or MPs. We assure them about the processes, and we can have confidence that we have done everything we are supposed to do. I think that process does take time. We have also been subject to a couple of reviews...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 1 - Duties of registered higher education providers (15 Sep 2021)

Matt Western: I thank my—I was about to say hon. Friend. I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that point. I am sure that my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle will elaborate. The reality of the academic community in higher education is that their areas of work are fluid. They do not see themselves as necessarily specialists in one field or another. As we heard in our evidence...
