Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill: Clause 1 - Extension of duty to provide careers guidance in schools (14 Jan 2022)

Nicola Richards: It is a pleasure to be called to speak on this important Bill, and I commend my hon. Friend the Member for Workington (Mark Jenkinson) for his immense efforts to secure its safe passage. When I was at school and college, some of the best careers advice that I received was from my dad, and it is thanks to his wisdom and support that I found my way. He did not tell me what to do; it was quite...

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill - Second Reading (2 Nov 2021)

Baroness Chapman of Darlington: ...whether there is now too much air travel. The Wright brothers were, of course, American, but the UK is also a nation with a proud scientific tradition. Alexander Fleming, Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin, Francis Crick and Tim Berners-Lee are just some of the names we can look to for inspiration. For a nation with such a proud tradition as ours, it has been disappointing that, for the past decade,...

Tributes to Sir David Amess (18 Oct 2021)

Mike Kane: ...but this was no time to die either. My wife reminded me of the time when we went to the beatification in Rome of John Henry Newman, just before lockdown—a beautiful service presided over by Pope Francis. We were whisked to the Oratorian College on one of the mountains of Rome overlooking Vatican City, where Prince Charles addressed us brilliantly. Then the royal cavalcade rushed out....

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

...backing documentation, covering as much as possible. That includes, for example, where we tracked fraudulent postal votes using postal vote returns in the election data. You can see how things were marked on postal voting. Tracking personation is much more difficult, but I will give you an interesting example. In the 2010 mayoral election, when Lutfur Rahman was first elected, I wrote one...

Co-operative Purchase of Companies (8 Sep 2021)

Christina Rees: ...individual businesses but, through the implementation of co-operative ideals, help the UK shift to a fairer and more democratic economy. On his election as leader of Welsh Labour, my dear friend Mark Drakeford, the First Minister of Wales, appointed a Minister with specific responsibilities for the co-operative sector, Lee Waters, the Labour and Co-operative MS for Llanelli. In May, the...

Oxford-Cambridge Arc — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (13 Jul 2021)

Andrew Lewer: ...industry, and the Ox-Cam arc could be the investment accelerator that will help to create the infrastructure to prevent it from being strangled by its own success. Northampton is the home of Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of DNA. It is within a 75-minute drive of the great universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Cranfield, which I was privileged to visit just last week to meet the South...

Debate on the Address: A Brighter Future for the Next Generation (13 May 2021)

Julia Lopez: ...Councillor Peter Golds, with whom I worked at the time and who raised with the Electoral Commission our serious worries about voter fraud. The tireless work of those residents and their barrister, Francis Hoar, exposed how easily the system can be exploited when authorities are just too nervous about taking action. Through their courage, they had the mayor’s election overturned. I do not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Ministerial Breaches of the Executive's COVID-19 Messaging (1 Apr 2021)

Nichola Mallon: ...22 of that party's elected representatives decided to attend a funeral and a graveside rally last June, it was a knowing act. It was not surrounded in ambiguity, and there was not a slight question mark over whether public health advice, guidelines and legislation were broken. Please do not let us hear that today. It is an insult to the bereaved across Northern Ireland and across our...

Sittings in Westminster Hall During the Pandemic (25 Feb 2021)

Nigel Evans: ...well. Dydd Gŵyl Dewi hapus i chi gyd—happy St David’s Day to you all. Along with all other Members, I too pass on my deepest condolences on behalf of Mr Speaker and all the friends of Dr Hywel Francis here in Parliament to his family. As the Secretary of State for Wales said, Hywel was one of those Members who, irrespective of party divide, would reach out and become a friend. He was...

Welsh Affairs (25 Feb 2021)

Nia Griffith: I echo colleagues’ kind words about Dr Hywel Francis, a great socialist, historian, campaigner, internationalist and friend, and I extend my condolences to his family. St David’s Day, coming in the springtime, is always a time of hope and celebration, but particularly so this year—and not just because we can begin to see an end to the pandemic thanks to the amazing work of our...

Welsh Food: Protected Status (15 Dec 2020)

Virginia Crosbie: ...for their quality. Our farmers practise high standards of animal husbandry and pastureland management, working primarily on family-run farms. That means that, when people see the prestigious GI mark on our meat, they will know that those lambs and cattle were born and reared in Wales, that they roamed freely and ate from our lush, naturally watered pastures. All of that means that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Mr Francie Brolly (10 Feb 2020)

Paul Givan: I did not have the opportunity to be in the Assembly when Francie Brolly was an MLA. He left at the start of 2010 and I joined later that year, but I did get to know Francie in a different sphere. Francie Brolly, yes, was a committed republican, but he was a committed republican who held, most importantly to him, the words of the 1916 proclamation of independence: "cherishing all the children...

The Peoples Moon is a global project to mark, in a unique and creative way, the 50th anniversary of landing the first humans onto the lunar surface. It is producing giant photo and video mosaics that will appear at multiple locations...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Billy McNeill MBE (20 May 2019)

David Linden: ...when, unfortunately, Celtic defeated the Diamonds 3-1 at Hampden Park. Following the match, Billy announced his retirement from playing football. It was his 822nd and last appearance for Celtic. Remarkably, in a career spanning so many years, he was never substituted, which is a tremendous achievement for any player. I cannot recall any other player who made that many appearances without...

Macpherson Report: 20TH Anniversary (25 Feb 2019)

Douglas Ross: ...the family’s reaction to the announcement that there would be a Stephen Lawrence Day, and Neville Lawrence—Stephen’s father—said that the annual commemoration of Stephen’s life is “a mark of what we have been trying to do for years—our son’s memory is going to be enshrined in history”. The English philosopher Francis Bacon said: “In order for the light to shine…the...

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...to deal with this threat. If this happens again at Heathrow or other major airports, we will see considerable disruption to people’s lives and losses to the economy. Nearly six years ago, the Francis report came out as a result of the terrible things that happened in Stafford Hospital over several years. Since then, a huge amount has been done to put that right and to make the County...
