Northern Ireland Assembly: Question for Urgent Oral Answer — The Executive Office: D-Day Events: Non-attendance of the First Minister (10 Jun 2024)

Matthew O'Toole: First Minister, one of the outcomes at the end of the Second World War was the creation of the EU, ultimately, and its single market. I was shocked last week to hear your party leader, Mary Lou McDonald, say on the Claire Byrne programme on RTÉ that she was not uncomfortable with an increase in checks on people moving across the border in Ireland. She also said that the main issue that Sinn...

Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

John Baron: .... That is something we all value in this place. I concur with the many observations made by colleagues that we are at our very best if we can foster consensus across the divide and move an issue forward. Like many others, I have certainly benefited from cross-party consensus, when we have been able to engineer it. I come back to the effectiveness of this place and the minority of...

War Graves Week (14 May 2024)

Kevan Jones: I begin by declaring an interest as a former commissioner of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and a current trustee of the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation. The hon. Member for Woking (Mr Lord) just described what we all see when we visit Commonwealth war grave cemeteries, with the beauty and the neatness of their lines. I always find it moving to read the inscriptions and see the...

Palestinians: Visa Scheme — [Martin Vickers in the Chair] (13 May 2024)

Claire Hanna: ...aid; the suspension of the sale of arms; hopefully, in time, the recognition of the state of Palestine, which I am pleased to say Ireland is due to do in the coming days; and meaningful progress towards a two-state solution, which is the only way that the people of the region are going to escape these cycles of hell—but this debate is about the small things that we can do to support the...

Scottish Parliament: Children (Care and Justice) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (24 Apr 2024)

...care-experienced people in Scotland. I appreciate that the member has said that he may not press or move the amendments in this group. Nonetheless, I stress that now is not the time to take a backward step and hinder the progress that Scotland has made in its approach to youth justice. Rather, we should ensure that we do what is best for Scotland’s children and young people by advocating...

Sudan: Government Response (22 Apr 2024)

Claire Hanna: Sudan is experiencing the worst displacement crisis in the world. It is not so much a civil war but a war on civilians, who are losing their homes, livelihoods and lives on a scale that is hard to comprehend. The Sudanese people feel forgotten, so it is vital that both aid and political focus are forthcoming. Will the Minister work with his Home Office colleagues to support Sudanese people in...

Backbench Business: St Patrick’s Day: Irish Diaspora in the UK — [Dame Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (14 Mar 2024)

Steven Baker: ...hon. Members have talked about so skilfully today. The hon. Member for Putney (Fleur Anderson) began her speech by talking about St Patrick being a traveller between these isles. As far as I am aware, that is my only connection to Ireland: I grew up in Cornwall and the Saints’ Way from Fowey to Padstow was—perhaps mythically—a route trodden by St Patrick. As a Celtic Christian...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Steve McCabe: ...small business rates multiplier for another year, but the increase in the minimum wage, though welcome for employees, will largely offset any benefits that businesses gain from the rates freeze. Claire, the enterprising woman who runs Aspire, a hair and beauty treatment business in my Selly Oak constituency, has told me that this will mean gaining on business rates but losing on wage...

Scottish Parliament: Migration to Scotland: Scottish Government Proposals (14 Nov 2023)

Kate Forbes: ...descended to such a state that it is incumbent on all of us to consider what we can do to improve the system, the policy and our approach to those who seek a new life here. I will start with what Claire Baker said. She indicated that there are areas of consensus and that it is important to retain that. That is absolutely right. The frustration for us all in the Scottish Parliament is that,...

Making Britain a Clean Energy Superpower ( 9 Nov 2023)

Claire Coutinho: ...sure we never have to worry again about generating enough power to keep the lights on or heat our homes. We saw what happened last year when Putin weaponised energy, and the full impact his illegal war in Ukraine had on energy bills for households around the world. I am proud that the Government stepped in with an unprecedented level of support, paying around half of people’s energy...

Scottish Parliament: Veterans and Armed Forces Community ( 5 Oct 2023)

Sharon Dowey: ..., we can all recognise the huge importance and contributions of veterans to our society, which were noted by Sarah Boyack in her closing remarks. In their service, and in their everyday lives afterwards, they are integral parts of communities across Scotland. The Scottish Government’s veterans strategy action plan is positive, as is the UK Government’s. It is fantastic to see both of...

Universal Jurisdiction (Extension) (25 Apr 2023)

Brendan O'Hara: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to provide that offences of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes may be tried in the United Kingdom regardless of the nationality or residence of the offender; and for connected purposes. The Universal Jurisdiction (Extension) Bill would tighten existing legislation on how we bring to justice those responsible for the world’s...

...Convention and offer a place of safety to people, including children, fleeing conflict and persecution, and affirms that sanctuary should be available under these obligations to those fleeing war and persecution, and that Scotland remains welcoming to such vulnerable people in their time of need, and agrees with the assessment of the Equality and Human Rights Commission that the bill risks...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Commons Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (21 Mar 2023)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...for breach of their speech rights. In explaining the change, the Minister said he has spoken to many noble Lords. But I am rather taken with the words of the Under-Secretary of State for Children, Claire Coutinho, who noted that she had spoken to many leading academics and that they shared her belief that the tort was necessary to secure cultural change on campus, and that that is why she...

Scottish Parliament: Retail and Town Centres (28 Feb 2023)

Douglas Lumsden: ...Fraser store, just like it used to have Debenhams, BHS and John Lewis stores. All of them have gone from Aberdeen’s high street and they will not be replaced. We need new thinking and new ideas. Claire Baker mentioned in her speech the demise of some of those big names. In Aberdeen, the old BHS building will have a new use—I hope—since Aberdeen’s success in securing £20 million of...

Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2022)

Kim Leadbeater: ...with my office and colleagues from across the House to secure the inclusion of Zach’s law in the Bill, to make the evil practice of epilepsy trolling illegal. My constituents Zach and his mum, Claire, from Hartshead, have being tireless in their campaigning, and I am delighted that this Christmas their efforts have finally been rewarded. However, if we are to be truly world-leading in...

Arts Council England: Regional Distribution of Funding - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...factual entertainment competition formats”—yuck. It seems that, if you are poor, you will be given poor-quality programmes. Perhaps that is too cynical, but the Arts Council director of music, Claire Mera-Nelson, has justified attacks on ENO, which, ironically, was set up nearly 100 years ago with the mission to bring opera to the masses—a noble cause. She said that there is...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: ...Union. The European Union was formed and founded on the basis that developing consensus in Europe was preferable in order to avoid conflict—that was its original concept. Two terrible world wars had absolutely destroyed Europe, with millions of lives lost, and there was a genuine desire on the part of many European leaders to develop a basis for working and co-existing together through...

Asylum Seekers Contingency Accommodation: Belfast (22 Nov 2022)

Claire Hanna: ...one’s home country in order to survive is beyond the lived experience of most of us in this room, we know there are myriad reasons that people are forced to make the decision to flee their home—war, famine, persecution, and increasingly the climate crisis. We are lucky to live in places where we are not faced with those kinds of decisions. Indeed, the UK receives a relatively low...

Super Health Hub in Plymouth City Centre (25 Oct 2022)

Luke Pollard: ...health to the high street really helps: it repurposes the city centre with the creation of a new health village, with the super health hub at its heart. Plymouth city centre is a very large, post-war city centre serving a population that has found new ways to shop, so we need to repurpose many of the empty buildings. The Colin Campbell Court part of town is an area that could do with a bit...
