Questions to the Mayor of London — Operation Yellowhammer: Operation Yellowhammer (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you, Chair. Since the prospect of leaving the EU without a deal threatened over a year ago, City Hall and the London Resilience Forum have been planning for the event of a no-deal Brexit, but this has been seriously hindered by the Government’s unwillingness to share information. Yellowhammer was released only as a result of a leak. It makes for grim reading in itself but there is...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Supporting Businesses: Supporting Businesses (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...Mayor’s Question Time to ask a question next month as well. I am extremely proud of my record in supporting London’s businesses notwithstanding the huge uncertainty and other challenges around Brexit and the Government’s handling of this. Since my mayoralty London’s economy has gone from strength to strength. London’s economic output has increased by 6.1%, there has been an...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Met Police: Met Police (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...more being thwarted; I am told 22 in the UK since March 2017. There has been an increase in protests and disorder with more people taking to the streets on a range of issues from climate change to Brexit. Demand is rising due to the increased complexity of crime and the systemic cuts to youth services and preventative measures. As I have stressed many times before, our brave and dedicated...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Housing needs: Housing needs (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...what we have at the moment, which is us receiving one-seventh of what we need. What they will welcome is the Government, rather than wasting £4 billion dealing with the consequences of no-deal Brexit, using that £4 billion to help build the homes that Londoners desperately need.

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Budget (Cancellation) (6 Nov 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...of devolution, simpler budgets used to have something like four months of scrutiny, we are now in a tight, constrained process. We do not yet know whether there will be a UK budget before the next Brexit cliff-edge date at the end of January. In that circumstance, would it be helpful for the Scottish representatives in this Parliament of the two parties that are likely to form the next UK...

Scottish Parliament: Independence (Economic Impact) (6 Nov 2019)

Ivan McKee: ...Government committed to updating the plans that it made for an independent Scotland in advance of the 2014 referendum. Currently, the greatest threat to the Scottish economy is presented by Brexit. Last week, we published a further “Scotland’s Place in Europe” paper, assessing the revised withdrawal agreement and political declaration. The paper highlights the damage that will be...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Growth Scheme (6 Nov 2019)

Ivan McKee: ...Government. The current uncertainty in the economy has likely had an impact on demand for funding, with recent research indicating that firms are putting off investment as they await the outcome of Brexit.

Scottish Parliament: Non-native Invasive Species (6 Nov 2019)

Mairi Gougeon: Invasive non-native species, by their very nature, do not respect national boundaries. That is why we aim to work collaboratively with EU countries where we can after Brexit. However, leaving the EU will limit our ability to get species on to the EU-wide lists that guarantee co-operation and collaboration with other European countries, and it will reduce our capacity to prevent the spread and...

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (6 Nov 2019)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...isles, because it was a Conservative Administration back in the 1980s that decided to carve out internal ferry services and have a separate arrangement for them. Ironically, given the context of Brexit, that decision was made in order to attract European funding.

Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Nick Herbert: ...the think-tank Reform, because I believe we need new thinking on Whitehall reform, planning and how we ensure markets operate fairly in the modern world. I just want to say something briefly about Brexit. I set up the national no campaign against joining the euro. For a long time I was thought of as a Eurosceptic, but I led the Conservatives In campaign to remain in the European Union....

Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: ...never been to Durham, go there at once. Take my car. It’s wonderful.” The major issue of our time, which I hope the next Parliament will address—in addition to sorting out the small issue of Brexit—is that of climate change and the climate emergency we face, so in 2019 I say, “Go to Durham, go there at once, but please don’t take a car. Get the train.” I will of course hugely...

Civil Partnership (Opposite-sex Couples) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (5 Nov 2019)

Baroness Barker: ...on those agreements? Will opposite-sex civil partnerships be included in the same way as same-sex marriages? Further, how will that international recognition be updated, particularly following Brexit, as some of the recognition agreements we have were made under EU law? I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Hodgson, that other matters were thrown into the Bill so that it became a bit of a...

Renaissance of East Anglian Fisheries Study (5 Nov 2019)

Peter Aldous: ...constituency, geographically at its centre. Lowestoft is historically the fishing capital of the southern North sea, and the hope is that in the future, if we make the most of the opportunity that Brexit presents, it will be the regional hub port at the heart of a revived but modern fishing industry that plays a key role in the regeneration of coastal communities. REAF—the Renaissance of...

Intelligence and Security Committee Report on Russia (5 Nov 2019)

Emily Thornberry: ...interference in the 2016 referendum, whether that was successful or otherwise? I fear it is because it realises that the report will lead to other questions about the links between Russia and Brexit, and with the current leadership of the Tory party, that risk derailing its election campaign. There are questions about the relationship between the FSB-linked Sergey Nalobin and his “good...
