Medical Research - Question for Short Debate (28 Mar 2017)

Baroness Buscombe: ...We of course want to encourage this investment to continue, which is why the research councils and NIHR work closely with charities on many large projects. For example, noble Lords will know of the Francis Crick Institute, which is a partnership between the Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, UCL, Imperial College London and King’s College London. In...

Technical and Further Education Bill: Report on quality outcomes of completed apprenticeships (9 Jan 2017)

Gordon Marsden: ..., and much emphasis has been put on apprenticeship starts, but far less emphasis—this is not a party political point—has been put on the process of completion. Those who are familiar with Sir Francis Drake’s famous saying that “it is not the beginning, but the continuing of the same, until it be thoroughly finished, which yields the true glory” will know why we think that it is...

South Sudan — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (7 Dec 2016)

Member for Foyle (Mark Durkan) on obtaining the debate and on his comprehensive introduction to it, as well as all the other hon. Members who have made informed and important contributions.

Committees: Social Housing: Regulation (31 Oct 2016)

Some of the cases are heart-breaking, including...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Maude of Horsham: ...far more finely balanced than either side would accept. I have some history in this. In the late 1980s and early 1990s I had a season ticket to Brussels. I had a seat, successively, on the Internal Market Council, the Foreign Affairs Council, ECOFIN and the Budget Council. At the invitation of my noble friend Lord Lamont, who was then Chancellor, my signature adorns the Maastricht treaty....

Centenary of the Battle of the Somme (29 Jun 2016)

Flick Drummond: ...It was perhaps an unforeseen consequence that where the Pals battalions suffered heavy losses, there would be an immediate, devastating impact on the local community that they came from. The Somme marked a change in how the Army was supplied with recruits. The close-knit Pals battalions were replaced with largely indiscriminate conscription, bringing together men from across the country to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the 2014-15 Excess Votes — Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Main Estimates 2016-17 (13 Jun 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: ...alone may not be enough to keep them afloat." I am determined that, under this Executive, the vulnerable people in our society will not be abandoned in a latter-day 'Raft of the Medusa'. Pope Francis articulated the same issues when he said: "I think of how many, and not just young people, are unemployed, many times due to a purely economic conception of society, which seeks selfish...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Colwyn: My Lords, I declare my interest as a retired dental surgeon and a fellow of the British Dental Association. I am sure that noble Lords will not be surprised to hear that in my remarks I am keen to turn the attention of the House towards the important but too often overlooked field of dentistry and oral health. As noble Lords will probably realise, the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin, virtually...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (8 Mar 2016)

...that was prepared by the women of Cuba and led by women all over the world. On Sunday, we celebrated mothering Sunday, honouring and giving thanks for our mothers, living and dead.

Those who devote themselves to public service share with women and men of good will a desire to make a...

Scottish Parliament: Colleges (9 Feb 2016)

Mary Scanlon: ...works together and we certainly did that on this occasion. We also received the Linkston report, which was conducted as a review of the merger process at Coatbridge College.

Bill Presented: Paris Climate Change Conference (19 Nov 2015)

Lisa Nandy: ...days, been the site of so much distress and despair. The attacks that took place at the weekend were acts of hatred, designed to divide us, crush people’s hopes and destroy lives.

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (3 Nov 2015)

...a member of the Parliament, a legislator, perhaps as a member of the Government, is something worthy, generous and good. It is, to use an old word, noble. I hope that you hear that sometimes. Pope Francis has spoken of “nurses with soul, teachers with soul, politicians with soul, people who have chosen deep down to be with others and for others.” Cicero was a senator with soul and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Climate Change (13 Oct 2015)

Mark Durkan: The overwhelming scientific evidence from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) fifth assessment report highlights the dramatic changes to our climate and their causes.

Public Bill Committee: Trade Union Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Oct 2015)

Dave Smith: Very specifically, the issue that I am concerned about as a blacklisted worker is the undoubted police collusion in blacklisting. It is not even a question anymore. Peter Francis, the undercover police officer who spied on Stephen Lawrence’s family, has given statements that were read out in Parliament in which he admitted spying on the Fire Brigades Union, Unison, the National...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Climate Change Conference (22 Sep 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...agreement that is unquestionably in our, and the entire global community's, best interests. We cannot underestimate how critical that is, and that was further underlined last week when Pope Francis held an unprecedented audience with all the European Environment Ministers and Commissioners and appealed to them to show leadership and push for a long-term decarbonisation goal. I have...

Business of the House: NHS Reform (16 Jul 2015)

Andy Burnham: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement and for advance sight of it. Let me say at the beginning that I support much of what he said. I will focus my remarks on his plan for seven-day working, and then touch on some of the other issues he raised. Ensuring that our health services are there for everyone whenever they are needed—be that a weekday or a weekend—should be our shared...
