Tributes (20 Dec 2022)

Lord Newby: ...and assurance, a model of discretion, tact and good sense, and always ready to provide constructive and practical advice, balancing the needs of the House with the public interest and transparency. Barry Whitcombe had been with House of Lords Facilities for 16 years. After five years, he was made senior attendant. Barry was a well-liked member of the team and is missed by all his...

Greenfield Station (28 Jan 2022)

Rob Roberts: It is my pleasure to be able to bring this week’s parliamentary business to a close with today’s Adjournment debate. I thought I would break with convention by leaving aside beer, cake and police reports, and focus on an issue that actually impacts my constituents day to day. Who knows, maybe it will catch on—fingers crossed; we live in hope. Rather than springing it on the Minister at...

Business of the House (27 Jan 2022)

Barry Sheerman: ...power and sovereignty lie in this House. What he has said, as reported in the press, is very worrying indeed. I must also tell the Leader of the House that, with 12 grandchildren, I get a lot of cake, but I have a secret passion for Eton mess. One of the messes I want cleared up is that, while my constituents think they have an inalienable right to breathe fresh, clean air, increasingly...

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill (22 Oct 2021)

Mark Pawsey: The hon. Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner) accused my hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Laura Farris) of overegging the cake. Is not the shadow Minister doing exactly that?

Amazon and SMEs (27 Mar 2019)

Kevin Brennan: ..., Mr Brana felt unable to take up that invitation. This is a cautionary tale for small businesses: a successful small business sells via Amazon, and Amazon offers a partnership to expand the cake and to take a slice, instead of which it effectively takes the whole cake. Mr Brana now deeply regrets having gone into partnership with Amazon. Far from helping his small business to grow, Amazon...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2018)

Baroness Humphreys: ...promise to be difficult and longwinded, and might never successfully be made. We appear to be prepared to allow ourselves to be trapped in some sort of Neverland, the mythical place created by JM Barrie, where Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys live. If we went there, we might perhaps find those sunlit uplands we have been promised—we might find unicorns too. We might also be presented with...

International Trade: Topical Questions (23 Nov 2017)

Barry Gardiner: ...protections close to the European model. The Government say their top priority is securing barrier-free trade with the EU, so does the Secretary of State accept that he can have American cake or European gateau, but he cannot have both?

NHS (Charitable Trusts Etc) Bill: Clause 1 — Removal of Secretary of State’s powers to appoint trustees (22 Jan 2016)

Maggie Throup: ...role in supporting our free-at-the-point-of-care national health service, which has served us so well. It is vital that those charities are allowed to conduct their amazing work with as few barriers as possible. I am often asked by people in this place and elsewhere, “Where exactly is Erewash?” My reply is that it is in Derbyshire, between Derby and Nottingham; for that reason, many of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (15 Feb 2011)

Barry McElduff: ...that every £1 invested in the arts returns over £3·60 to the local economy. Nobody disputes the fact that it is a significant net contributor, although the point is regularly forgotten when the cake is sliced. However, the benefits of investment in the arts are felt across society. For example, 56% of the money allocated from the Arts Council’s main grant programmes is invested in the...

Grandparents (Access Rights): National Insurance Contributions Bill (23 Nov 2010)

Barry Gardiner: ...on him. He accepted that there was unfairness in the Bill and that that unfairness was "regrettable". My point is that although it is regrettable, it is not inevitable. We do not have to cut the cake or make the investments in this way. In a rather partisan speech, the hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Michael Fallon) derided my right hon. Friend the Member for Delyn (Mr Hanson). He said that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Primary Healthcare: Carrickmore (4 May 2010)

Barry McElduff: ...developments. They believe that it is sensible to invest in the practice and that it would be a false economy not to do so. As an MLA, I am aware that we all want the health budget slice of the cake to be much larger. At this time, the Health Department secures approximately 50% of the overall Budget for 12 Departments, and I support that. We believe strongly that the development of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive  Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the  2010-11 Vote on Account (15 Feb 2010)

Barry McElduff: ...or for which there are long-term leases on facilities, and where projects are well advanced through community fund-raising. That is a real issue, to which a response is needed. I suggest that the cake for the arts is not big enough and needs to be enlarged. We talk about dividing up the cake between the professional arts and the pursuit of excellence on the one hand and community-based...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 2010-11 Spending Plans (9 Feb 2010)

Peter Weir: ..., there seems to be a concern that the Department is hiding behind the belief that it should be sheltered from any financial change. Given the importance of health, that is a grave concern. Barry McElduff, as Chairperson of the Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure, and Mervyn Storey, as Chairperson of the Committee for Education, high­lighted points of a similar nature, one being that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Report on the Inquiry into the Funding of the Arts in Northern Ireland (24 Nov 2009)

Barry McElduff: ...from the sector. The Committee also asked about the impact of such funding on society and how the available funding is distributed across the various art forms. Of course, everyone wants a larger cake, but are the existing budget priorities correct? The main findings of the inquiry are as follows: first, the Committee concluded that there is a lack of information about how much money the...

[Ann Winterton in the Chair] — Deprivation/Child Poverty (19 Jun 2008)

Barry Sheerman: ..., it is the quality of the setting that matters? He would surely agree that part of what the Government are trying to do is to squeeze out below-standard child care. I, too, would like to have my cake and eat it and to have low-cost, stimulating, high-quality care. At this point in the 21st century, however, society can surely no longer accept the fact that poor children go into...

Standards and Privileges (23 Jul 2007)

George Galloway: ...with the parliamentary commissioner, the subject of the so-called minute of my meeting with Saddam Hussein in August 2003 was being discussed. I asked for the provenance of that minute. Miss Alda Barry, a civil servant of unimpeachable integrity, whom I have known in this House for 20 years, said that apparently there was a tape recording of the meeting. Yet when I received the transcript...

Business of the House: Higher Education (15 Mar 2007)

Barry Sheerman: .... That is to be celebrated, but those figures do not include enough kids from poorer backgrounds. We need to raise both our aspirations for those young people and their achievements. Can I have my cake and eat it? What irritates me about some of our colleagues—not just Opposition Members, but Labour Members too—and many media commentators is that they pontificate about what goes on in...

Orders of the Day: Sustainable Communities Bill (19 Jan 2007)

Barry Sheerman: I was very fond of Eric Forth, but I was not fond of the way in which he often talked out very good Bills—it seems that I want to have my cake and eat it—and I do not like that attitude on either side of the House. I have come here today to support the hon. Gentleman's Bill, but I urge him to be even-handed politically. This is not about one Government or one term of government; the...

Rural Economy (2 Feb 2006)

Baroness Byford: the past you were able to buy fresh meat or fresh bread from a number of villages, in some parts that is now becoming difficult. The only opportunity one gets to buy those, along with homemade cakes, pots of jam, home-grown vegetables and local, high-quality products, is usually at farmers' markets. Larger villages have a GP's surgery, even if some only have them open on one or two days...
