Upcoming Business – Lords: Main Chamber (12 Mar 2018)

NHS Staff: Oxfordshire (20 Feb 2018)

Victoria Prentis: ...particularly useful, because that is our greatest local challenge with regard to good healthcare. It is also good to see the Minister in his place. Since he took up his role, he and I have spoken many times about the issues faced at the Horton. We in Banbury are waiting patiently to hear the outcome of the Independent Reconfiguration Panel’s initial assessment of the permanent...

Arts Council England Funding: Coalfield Communities (20 Feb 2018)

Michael Ellis: some of England’s most vital cultural institutions—it is by no means the only form of funding it distributes. The Arts Council has established various funding streams to tackle different issues across the nation. Many of those funding streams are heavily focused on supporting areas outside London. Some 80% to 90% of the funding for the Ambition for Excellence scheme, which...

Nuclear Weapons - Question for Short Debate (20 Feb 2018)

Baroness Goldie: ..., the nuclear non-proliferation treaty has worked. By offering reciprocal guarantees to all its signatories, it has succeeded in significantly limiting the global proliferation of nuclear weapons. As many of your Lordships will be aware, it has underpinned the massive reduction in nuclear weapons since the end of the Cold War, and it has allowed all countries to benefit from the peaceful...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Alan Duncan: ..., we have heard before. Likewise, my right hon. Friend made an impassioned plea for humanitarian agencies to be fully considered, and I will come to that shortly. He also spoke of Magnitsky, as did many Members; I will go into more detail later, but for now I will say that this Bill has wide-ranging powers to sanction people for human rights abuse. On open registers, we share my right hon....

Safeguarding in the Aid Sector - Statement (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Bates: I am very happy to give that undertaking. My noble friend is absolutely right that British people are generous to people around the world. In many ways, the great tragedy of what has happened is that the failure to act in a transparent and timely way has genuinely put lives at risk, because people might stop giving in the way that he talked about. Oxfam alone has around 10,000 people in 90...

Review of Post-18 Education and Funding - Statement (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the review had some very interesting things in it. I must give the Government some credit for the best back-down I have ever read in any document: “Many elements of our current post-18 education system work well”— if ever there was a way of saying some do not. I have never heard of anything like it before. The section on “A system that is accessible to...

Andrey Lugovoy and Dmitri Kovtun Freezing Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Hylton: My Lords, I welcome this order but I think it would be helpful to the House if the Minister could tell us how many persons are subject to orders similar to this one and what the approximate total of the now-frozen assets is? I apologise to him for not warning him of these two points but I hope he can deal with them.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (20 Feb 2018)

Baroness Sugg: operated. If they do so, they may ultimately be liable for the consequences of those actions. The noble Lord, Lord Campbell-Savours, my noble friend Lord Lucas, the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, and many other noble Lords raised the complex issue of software. It is not the policy intent or function of the Bill to provide the regulatory framework for safety and security standards of the...

Postal Voting (20 Feb 2018)

Gareth Snell: ...the hon. Member for Southport wishes to introduce? There is no accepted definition of “campaigner”. I understand why he wishes to codify that in his Bill, but there will always be exceptions and unanswered questions. The Bill has many regulatory holes and too many unresolved questions. Although I do not intend to force a Division, I want my opposition and that of many of my...

Post-18 Education (20 Feb 2018)

Angela Rayner: Let me offer the Secretary of State a simple conclusion to his review: a fully costed plan to scrap tuition fees, to bring back maintenance support and to reverse the rest of the Government’s cuts to education. It is called “For the many, not the few” and that is exactly what our education system should be.

Northern Ireland Update - Statement (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Rogan: Northern Ireland. I will be pessimistic: I cannot see it happening in the near future. In the absence of devolved government in Northern Ireland, we urgently need ministerial decisions in many, many departments, none more so than on a budget for Northern Ireland. For some 400 days now, senior civil servants have been coping without ministerial direction. When will the Minister begin to...

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Kate Osamor: ...of State has written to taxpayer-funded charities to ask for written assurance that they have safeguards in place, but I am not convinced that that will do the job. We need each charity to tell us how many cases they are aware of, how they have been resolved and whether there could be others. We need a full, sector-wide picture to be reported back to Parliament. The inquiry must target not...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Second Reading (20 Feb 2018)

Baroness Deech: ...a year—but quite soon, because no one will want a short-range car when they can have a longer-range battery. We pioneers deserve all the subsidies we can get as we lead the way in persuading all, or many, drivers to go electric. The second problem, which the Bill begins to address, is the range. My car’s is 120 miles maximum. The distance from my home to Westminster and back is...

Northern Ireland (20 Feb 2018)

Owen Smith: ...clarity and contingency planning have also been important features of the process, so people know where they are in that process and what will follow if there is no progress. On those questions, I fear that many in Northern Ireland will be little the wiser after the Secretary of State’s statement this afternoon, because she told us, in a crucial passage, that “it became...

Medical Cannabis (20 Feb 2018)

Nick Hurd: ..., my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine), is sitting next to me, very much in listening mode. I reassure my hon. Friend, and my right hon. Friend the Attorney General, who has made many representations to me on behalf of Alfie Dingley and his family, that there are clearly some special circumstances in this case that need to be respected. I have undertaken to meet the...

Charities, Social Enterprises and Voluntary Organisations - Question (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: the chair, she will renounce her party membership and move to the Cross Benches. She is well aware of what it takes to be impartial and I am sure she will do a good job, as has been said by many people in the charity sector.

Black Rod - Retirement of Lieutenant General David Leakey and introduction of Sarah Clarke (20 Feb 2018)

Baroness Evans of Bowes Park: ...2011, following the sadly curtailed tenure of Sir Freddie Viggers, after a distinguished career in the Army spanning four decades. He commanded forces and operations in a number of areas, including West Germany, Northern Ireland and Bosnia. He used his service experience in the latter country to play a critical role as the UK’s military representative during the talks which led to...

Social Housing and Regeneration: Earl’s Court and West Kensington (20 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: ...for Westminster North (Ms Buck), who are passionate about these issues, as I am. Most of all I thank the tenants and residents not only for giving up their day and being here—they have given up so many days—but for everything they have done for their community. By resisting the demolition that was due in the area, they have prevented it from happening to other communities in...
