Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Programme for Government: Update (19 Sep 2016)

Martin McGuinness: Everybody will appreciate that the Brexit vote puts us in a completely different situation. Yes, the decision by the Finance Minister to go for a one-year Budget has been endorsed by the Executive. We think that it is a sensible procedure, given the uncertainty that overhangs everything that we are dealing with at the moment as a result of Brexit. The big challenge for us is to ensure...

Lord Morrow, from a...

Quantitative Easing: Financial Services: EU Markets (15 Sep 2016)

Chris Leslie: the 1980s…offers the prospect of the greatest economic gain.” I do not believe that the Government should follow that path, and I hope the Minister will resist such siren voices. If we allow Brexit to cloud our judgment or take it as a chance to forget the catastrophic impact of excessive risk taking, opaque products and reckless behaviour, we will be taking a big step backwards and...

Quantitative Easing (15 Sep 2016)

Peter Dowd: ...the mistakes of the past. Until the Chancellor pulls his finger out and finally outlines his plans, the Bank of England has sole responsibility for ensuring that the economy gets through the post-Brexit uncertainty.

Conflict in Fragile States - Motion to Take Note (15 Sep 2016)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ..., history and, ultimately, many of our neighbours. I hope that the Department for Education, and the Minister this afternoon, will take back those thoughts. Given the rise in hate crime after Brexit, given the need for this sort of resource, and given the need for children to have something in front of them that is not just a dry text, this is exactly the sort of material that we have a...

Hinkley Point C - Statement (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Lawson of Blaby: ...of whatever stripe has said that this is a thoroughly lousy deal, for reasons which will not be affected in the slightest by the changes she announced in the Statement? It is charming, in this post-Brexit era, to throw out a lifeline to EDF, which as the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, pointed out, is on the verge of bankruptcy and has never built a power station of this kind. As he rightly...

Drug-Resistant Infections - Motion to Take Note (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...Lord Colwyn, Lord Lansley and Lord Selborne said, the take-up of innovation is hugely important.

Prison Safety — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (15 Sep 2016)

Bob Neill: ...Secretary of State issued after her appearance before the Justice Committee, and I will take her at her word on that, but we need the measures that we talked about to be brought forward swiftly. If Brexit means Brexit, to adopt a phrase, pace means pace, but pace requires detail in order for there to be credibility in how things are delivered. That is the approach that I take—we want to...

Grammar Schools - Question (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Framlingham: My Lords, does the Minister agree with me that there is a grave danger of this House being as out of step with the country on grammar schools as it was on Brexit? The majority of people in the country understand the huge value of grammar schools—

Home Ownership - Question (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, the right reverend Prelate rightly draws attention to land-banking, which I have indicated before is a very real issue. We are looking on a weekly basis at the prices of land, post the Brexit vote. A levelling off of prices is indicated but it is too early to draw many conclusions. One consequence if prices are levelling off is that it will make it easier to tackle the problem of...

Business of the House (15 Sep 2016)

Paul Flynn: ...and Skills Committee will be renamed and continue with a Labour Chairman; that the new International Trade Committee will be chaired by a Member of the Scottish National party; and that the new Brexit Committee will be chaired by a Labour MP?

Ruth Cadbury: Will the Secretary of State reassure me that he will not be diverted by claims about the difference Brexit makes to airport expansion and will address the costs to the taxpayer of road and rail infrastructure that would be required for a third runway? Will he also look at the comparative costs for other alternatives, such as Gatwick?

Smoking-Related Diseases - Question for Short Debate (14 Sep 2016)

Baroness Walmsley: .... I welcome the proposed removal of packets of less than 20 cigarettes, which used to be so popular with children, and also the plain packaging and larger pictorial health warnings. I hope that Brexit does not get in the way of all that. The BMA calls for more measures to protect others from second-hand smoke. This is particularly important for children. Since we cannot ban smoking in...
