Building Safety and Cladding: Putney (21 Jan 2022)

Fleur Anderson: ..., there are people who are having their lives ruined. I will say something about the impact that is having on them. One constituent said to me: “I am living this nightmare every day as this mess continues to drag on. I ask you; you tell me, ‘What’s the point of living a life like this?’ I am starting to get sick again and I’m finding it super hard to carry on.” Another...

Hare Coursing Bill (21 Jan 2022)

Daniel Zeichner: ...round the Trumpington estate by Richard Pemberton and the National Farmers Union. I was struck by how vicious these crimes are and how deeply felt they are by the people who have to clear up the mess and deal with the stress that they cause. We have heard about the impact on the hare—one of the iconic creatures of our countryside—and about the fall in numbers. I understand that the...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 50 (20 Jan 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...noble Lord, Lord Scriven. By splitting it, you then must say to the integrated care board, “Ah, but in your duties, you must ensure that you integrate with social care as well.” It really is a mess. The Minister said earlier that this is what the NHS wanted. Yes, this is an NHS Bill designed by NHS managers with a focus on the NHS. I do not know why it is called a care Bill, because it...

Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (19 Jan 2022)

Lord Empey: ...not thought through in sufficient detail. We knew it was going to be difficult, and that was compounded by poor negotiating strategy and implementation. Our little Province is now left with this mess that we now have. What we have here, and what the protocol currently is, is the product of a proposal from our own Prime Minister. He wrote his explanatory note to the European Union on 2...

Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (19 Jan 2022)

Lord McCrea of Magherafelt and Cookstown: ...think, listening to this, that what the noble Lord, Lord Empey, was saying is right, not knowing the history of what has gone on down the years. Of course, the noble Lord is right to talk about messing around with legislation, but let us remember that legislation on abortion was brought before this House. It was tagged on to legislation that had nothing to do with it yet it was forced on...

Covid-19: Forecasting and Modelling (18 Jan 2022)

Bob Seely: nowhere near 100,000. There was nothing inevitable about Professor Ferguson’s inevitability, and his crystal ball must have gone missing from the start. In The Times, he blamed the Euros for messing up his modelling because—shock horror—people went to pubs a lot to watch the games during the competition. When the tournament finished—shock horror—they did not. That seems to be...

English Football League Governance: Derby County FC (18 Jan 2022)

Clive Betts: .... It is unthinkable that Derby should go out of existence, but it was unthinkable that Bury should go out of existence, and look what happened. This is really just another example of the complete mess that is football finance. Why are the rules about administration in place? It is because a few years ago Leicester City deliberately went into administration to get rid of its debts to enable...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 25 (18 Jan 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...I love them and have represented their interests, I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, that accountability and democracy do not come very easily to them, and you can see that in the complete mess that we see before us today. We then come to the question of whether these ICBs are accountable at all locally. I see no evidence of that at all; they are clearly part of a top-down managed...

Scottish Parliament: Financial Support for Businesses (13 Jan 2022)

...that the Scottish Government tries to do. Thank goodness he has not been responsible for these difficult decisions because, given his display in Opposition, the country would be in a sorry mess over Covid had he had anything to do with them. We will continue to take responsible decisions, we will continue to support businesses and we will continue to lead this country, as safely as...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Qualifications Authority (Examinations Process) (13 Jan 2022)

Willie Rennie: To be frank, the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills has made a right mess of this. She issued two conflicting statements within two days, which included making a major announcement on Twitter, which is hardly the forum for such announcements. There was such confusion that the SQA had to step in to clarify things. Does the First Minister think that that is the right way to treat pupils...

Energy Prices - Question (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...demand is still rising, we will get again and again the huge, volatile and extremely damaging rise in fuel and power prices that we have now. Is that not the main lesson to be learned from the mess that we are in now?

Building Safety - Statement (11 Jan 2022)

Lord Greenhalgh: a private developer, then the consequences should be the same. We should do that in a way that is fair and proportionate to ensure that the polluter, whoever it is, contributes to fixing the mess that they have played some part in creating. It should be collaborative; I have spent a lot of time reaching out to the National Housing Federation and different chief executives, and will...

Household Energy Bills: VAT (11 Jan 2022)

Ed Miliband: I will not. We have a Government who got us into this mess and have no clue how to help the British people out of it. They are paralysed in the face of this cost-of-living crisis. They do not have any answers for the British people, either now or in the future. That is why we are acting. I urge Members from all parties to join us in a few minutes and vote for relief for hard-working families...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (Day 1): Amendment 1 (11 Jan 2022)

Baroness Thornton: the negative impacts had been properly recognised. Such a Bill would have passed much more easily, but we are where we are. It would not be too harsh to say that the Bill has become a bit of a mess and we are here to do our best to get the legislation into shape. So far, there is evidence of a lot of agreement on the major issues with three or four glaring exceptions which we hope we...

Ultrafast Broadband: Devon and Somerset — [CHRISTINA REES in the Chair] (11 Jan 2022)

Chris Elmore: ...20% of premises in the UK that are hardest to reach. We would welcome that ambition with open arms, if it was real, but, as with everything from this Government, it simply is not. It is an unholy mess of snake oil mixed with smoke and mirrors. A fraction of the promised cash—£1.2 billion—is now slated for use. Were I feeling unkind, that could be described, using the Prime...

Charter for Budget Responsibility and Welfare Cap (10 Jan 2022)

Pat McFadden: ...Minister and I debated this last Wednesday night—£17 billion in extra costs for the taxpayer, which the Government casually legislated for last Wednesday night to pay for their own mistake in messing up public sector pensions reform. Where is the Government’s commitment to transparency, value for money or proper procurement practices in their fiscal rules? Did they forget to include...

Legislation: Skeleton Bills and Delegated Powers - Motion to Take Note (6 Jan 2022)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...that we are facing a good deal of half-baked Bills at the moment. I have certainly read through two half-baked Bills over my recess—the Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill, which is a real mess, and the Elections Bill. I also read the highly critical report of the Commons Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee on the Elections Bill, which was published on 7...

Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [Lords] (5 Jan 2022)

John Martin McDonnell: ...discussion of the issue. I want to focus briefly on part 1 of the Bill, which addresses the McCloud judgment. I think we have to acknowledge that what we are having to deal with is an absolute mess in the management of public sector pension schemes by the Government, exposed by the McCloud judgment. It was a mess created not by the members of the public schemes themselves, who have been...

Historical Allegations of Sexual Abuse: Non-UK Armed Forces Personnel: Immigration Requirements (5 Jan 2022)

Johnny Mercer: ...bit, considering how the Conservative party dresses itself up as the party of the armed forces—were just insane. They treated the hon. Gentleman and I as if we had just sailed up the Thames in a mess tin and had no idea what we were talking about. Clearly, if this action was in train and was about to happen, we would not waste our time conducting a campaign on it, including in...

Scottish Parliament: Quantitative Easing (23 Dec 2021)

Nicola Sturgeon: arrangements to support that position—where our public health response to a global pandemic was not being constrained by the decisions of a Conservative Government that is in a complete mess. Labour may wish to reflect on that and leave that kind of question to the Tories.
