Brexit: Consumer Protection (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ..., provide us with incredibly fine lawyerly advice. Others on the secretariat serve the committee very well. The noble Lord, Lord Bilimoria, said something very important: “Now we know”. In many ways that should be the strapline for what has happened over the two and half years since the referendum. Many of the things that are the subsoil of our relationship with the rest of Europe were...

Brexit: Proposed UK–EU Security Treaty (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, as many noble Lords have alluded to this evening, a week is a long time in politics—and it is only Wednesday. As the noble Lord, Lord Jay, rightly pointed out, we are the calm and thoughtful end of Parliament, and the debate has absolutely reflected that this evening. I am grateful to all those who have spoken. I also take the opportunity to thank the EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee...

Car Production: Solihull (16 Jan 2019)

Richard Harrington: ..., when I came into the Chamber, I saw lots of people, who I thought had come to listen to this debate. I thought, “Perhaps it is because of Jaguar.” Jaguars are known as “supertoys” by many people. Members may aspire to owning them and I can strongly recommend them. I have had a little indication that Madam Deputy Speaker may have a product manufactured by this company. So if...

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

Michael Gove: As you know, Mr Speaker, having sat throughout this entire debate, it has been a passionate debate, characterised by many excellent speeches. I commend my hon. Friends the Members for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), for Bolton West (Chris Green), for East Surrey (Mr Gyimah), for Mid Norfolk (George Freeman), and for Plymouth, Moor View (Johnny Mercer), my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Education: Treating Students Fairly (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...pathways for young people into and through both further and higher education, and then on into employment—different but equal routes to rewarding careers. Parity of esteem has been mentioned by many noble Lords in this debate, including the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, and the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay. Let me say at the outset that it is what the Government...

UN Climate Change Conference: Government Response (16 Jan 2019)

Claire Perry: ...we could taste the coal on the air that we breathed—a reminder of one of the challenges of the whole process. I know that these debates exist for hon. Members to make political points, but many Opposition Members are far more intelligent than some of the points they tried to make. On the issue of just transition, as the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh) will know from her...

Guildford Borough Council — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Paul Beresford: ...were consulted, as is standard for local authorities in developing their plan. The plan relating to some of the eastern wards involves massive—and I mean massive—loss of green-belt land. For many residents, the green belt was the basis of their desire to live in Mole Valley; it is what makes it attractive. Protests from individuals and groups, especially parish councils, was...

British Bioethanol Industry — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Nusrat Ghani: ...Friend the Member for Cleethorpes (Martin Vickers) for their passionate contributions and representations on behalf of the bioethanol industry and their constituencies. I believe that I will cover many of the issues that they raised, but if I do not address them all, the Minister of State will no doubt respond in writing. The Government understand the potential benefits of the bioethanol...

Brexit: EU Citizens in the UK - Question (16 Jan 2019)

Lord Greaves: ...60 years ago and are now therefore mainly in their 80s. One of them said: “We are foreigners in Italy, we are foreigners over here”. They are old people; they are racked by dismay and anxiety. Many of them do not know what to do and are astonished that they have to apply for something which was granted to them—the right to live in this country—when they first came. On 15 January,...

Planning: Permitted Development Rights - Question (16 Jan 2019)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...speedier change of use from one medium to another. It is also about looking at the ability to build up to five storeys from ground level, so it is not necessarily about losing shops. There are many vacant shops and there is a question about what we do about that, but, as I say, the consultation has just ended. We are beginning to analyse the more than 400 responses that have come in, so...

Brexit: Support for Remaining in the EU - Question (16 Jan 2019)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, does my noble friend recognise that many who voted in the referendum—on both sides, leave and remain—want us to be in a common market with our European neighbours but not in the European Union? The mechanism that they think might achieve that is to be in a customs union with our European neighbours while exiting the European Union. Will he recognise that that should now be part...

Low-Level Letter Boxes (Prohibition) (16 Jan 2019)

Vicky Ford: .... I have been overwhelmed by support from Members across the House. We all need to declare a bit of an interest. We politicians have been known to deliver an occasional leaflet ourselves, maybe. Many Members of this House visited their own Royal Mail sorting offices in the run-up to Christmas. I enjoyed visiting the one in Chelmsford. Our posties have deep knowledge of and care for their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (16 Jan 2019)

Anna Soubry: ...this morning by police officers, but they had then left their post to go somewhere else. Mr Speaker, I am grateful to the police who keep us safe, and you know the sort of conversations that I and many others have had with them. I do not doubt that they want to do a good job, but unless the Metropolitan police at the most senior level now do their job and make sure that our staff have...

Department for Work and Pensions: Members’ Representations (16 Jan 2019)

Laura Pidcock: ...will have protections, but those people who have naturally migrated—often, but not always, through change of circumstances—will not have those protections. What is the justification for that? Many of my constituents are worse off.

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Mel Stride: .... At the heart of the matter lies the issue of fairness in the taxation system and the way in which the benefits system operates in our country. Also at the heart lies the central point that many speakers have made this morning as to whether the tax and benefits system appropriately incentivises aspiration—a Conservative ideal—and effectively incentivises employment, including...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill: Harming a service animal (16 Jan 2019)

David Rutley: ..., Ms Buck, to meet Finn and Dave Wardell before the sitting, and to have the active support of the policing Minister—quite the occasion and a real honour. I pay tribute to my friend of many years’ standing, my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for North East Hertfordshire. He was an outstanding Minister, and it is fantastic to see him turning his attention to Bills such as this....

Speaker’S Statement (16 Jan 2019)

John Bercow: ..., Members “must not use any device to take photographs, film or make audio recordings in or around the Chamber.” I well understand that yesterday’s events were exciting, and that these days many people regularly take photographs which they feel compelled to share with a wider audience, but Members featured in these photographs have not given their permission, and to that extent this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Leaving the EU: Immigration (16 Jan 2019)

David Mundell: As I have said many times in the Chamber, I remain at an absolute loss to understand why the SNP thinks that making Scotland the most highly taxed part of the United Kingdom is an attractive proposition to bring people to Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Defence Sector (16 Jan 2019)

Stuart Andrew: It may have escaped the hon. Lady’s attention but I am not the Secretary of State, and I have visited many of the shipyards around this country and in Scotland. I have seen for myself how well they are doing. We want them to be competitive, so that they can have a long-term future. We have 20 years of work guaranteed for Scotland’s shipyards, and Conservative Members can be proud of that.
