Devolved Administrations: 20th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (22 May 2019)

Lord Duncan of Springbank: .... I was genuinely privileged to meet the same group who he brought across and they made me think. We still await the views of the victims’ commissioner, which we anticipate imminently, but I give the noble Lord my word that we will act on them as quickly as we can. These people have waited too long and it is right that we begin the discussion tonight on that point. It is important that...

International Education Strategy (22 May 2019)

Graham Stuart: ...we have a refreshed international education strategy. Perhaps because of my background, I find that education is one of the most interesting sectors that I deal with as a trade Minister. Education gives almost no negatives. It brings real money and builds links, and people who come here to study then form part of teams or found companies and innovate, when they might not otherwise have...

British Steel - Statement (22 May 2019)

Lord Morris of Aberavon: My Lords, can the Minister give an assurance that government procurement provides a level playing field for steel produced within the United Kingdom?

Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Edward Argar: .... I hope that at some point soon, with her permission, I might be able to meet the all-party parliamentary group for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I welcome both reports, and commit to giving their recommendations the full and proper consideration they deserve and that the hon. Lady would expect. I will respond to her in due course about the detail of those reports. I also...

Petition - Funding for Russell Hall Primary School: Farming Community: Suicide (22 May 2019)

Robert Goodwill: ...present very difficult time. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Brecon and Radnorshire (Chris Davies) for securing this important debate. Coming just after Mental Health Awareness Week, it gives us a chance to consider this important issue affecting key communities across the country. Tragically, this is an issue that affected one member of my own wider family some years ago, and I...

Leaving the European Union - Statement (22 May 2019)

Lord Hain: ...accept that, right across the world, there is incredulity at how a once reliable, respected country has fallen into such dysfunctional governmental chaos? Is it not time—long overdue time—to give the people an opportunity to end all this madness in a public vote, and not simply to dangle that in front of Parliament but to offer it within government legislation that Parliament can vote...

Pension Funds: Financial and Ethical Investments — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Guy Opperman: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman, who has not had a chance to speak.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (22 May 2019)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ..., it might be easier to understand exactly what is going to happen. I want to raise two questions. First, she is asking us to suspend the Standing Orders until the end of the Session. Could she give us a little clue as to when that might be, plus or minus a year or two? Later on, the Motion refers to, “orders relating to public Bills”— —that is “Bills”, plural. We know from the...

Sentencing (Pre-consolidation Amendments) Bill [HL] - First Reading (22 May 2019)

A Bill to give effect to Law Commission recommendations relating to commencement of enactments relating to sentencing law and to make provision for pre-consolidation amendments of sentencing law. The Bill was introduced by Lord Keen of Elie, read a first time and ordered to be printed.

Political Parties: Donation Rules - Question (22 May 2019)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...come out with consultations but we really have a problem in this country with our electoral law, with law governing political parties, with donations, loans and everything else in this area. Can he give an assurance to the House that, despite other problems, he will do everything in his power to make sure that we address this urgently?

Schools: British Sign Language - Question (22 May 2019)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: I note the noble Lord’s interest. The Government fully recognise the benefits that a British Sign Language GCSE would bring to the deaf community. I wish I was in a position to give the noble Lord a more definitive timeline. However, as I have said, the process of developing a new GCSE is complex. Typically, it takes at least two years from the start of a reform process to the first...

Office for Environmental Protection - Question (22 May 2019)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...Air quality and this whole arena will be part of the environment Bill, and it is clear that the improvement of air quality is part of ensuring we have an enhanced environment. Indeed, the Bill will give legal force to our clean air strategy, and we will work to ensure that we continuously improve air quality as part of environmental governance and its principles.

British Steel (22 May 2019)

Greg Clark: would have hung over the assets, preventing any new partner from taking them on. The hon. Lady also asked about the reports of the £30 million facility. The assessment of the accounting officer gives more information on that. In fact, that £30 million was not for a permanent refinancing of British Steel; it was a contribution to an administration only. The assessment was that the...

Leaving the European Union (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...Why would the House support such a chaotic and desperate approach? Labour set out a sensible compromise plan over a year ago, including a comprehensive and permanent customs union with the EU that gives us a say, which would allow us to strike trade deals as part of the world’s biggest trading bloc, bringing investment, while maintaining the highest standards. It is credible and...

Information Disclosure: Pre-trial Abuse of Process Hearings (22 May 2019)

Dame Cheryl Gillan: ...have priority in our criminal justice system—that is most important. She mentioned at the beginning of her response that she is working on new guidelines that will come out shortly. Could she give us a greater indication of when we can expect those new guidelines? Would there be any possibility of looking at the draft guidelines before they are finalised and published?

Leaving the EU: Extension Period Negotiations — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

James Cleverly: interesting point on the road to delivering Brexit. She raised a number of interesting and important issues. I will attempt to address them in the limited time that we have, but I also want to give her time to respond to the debate that she initiated. I remind hon. Members that the Government, much like the majority of MPs, want to deliver on the result of the referendum and leave the...

Public Bill Committee: Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill: Inspections (22 May 2019)

Alistair Carmichael: ...focus is secondary. To put it bluntly, people often do not understand the full legal significance of the way in which they go about their business. For that reason, there is substantial merit in giving police constables powers under the Bill. It is not necessarily desirable to leave it to the choice of the inspector to take along a police constable as one of the two other people they may...

Public Bill Committee: Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (22 May 2019)

Sandy Martin: Can the Minister give us a categorical assurance that those circuses that currently have licences to show animals cannot bring additional animals in for the last few months of the licence that they already have? Clearly, the close relationship between the two circuses that gave evidence yesterday and the gentleman from Circus Krone, who shows large numbers of big cats, suggests that he might...

Public Bill Committee: Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill: Disqualification (22 May 2019)

Sandy Martin: Does my hon. Friend agree that the main thrust of the new clause is not automatically to disqualify anybody who has been convicted of touring with a circus with animals, but that it gives the court the opportunity to make that a factor if the treatment of those animals has been bad enough? There are all sorts of different gradations of offence, and if there is a particularly serious offence,...

Public Bill Committee: Wild Animals in Circuses (No. 2) Bill: Inspections (22 May 2019)

David Rutley: The clause gives effect to the Bill’s schedule, which makes provision for the appointment of inspectors and sets out their powers and duties under the Bill, including powers of entry, inspection, search and seizure. The Committee may wish to debate the inspection provisions when we consider the schedule.
