Autumn Statement 2022 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2022)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, this has been an excellent and very interesting debate. I will refrain from commenting on individual speeches because I realise that everyone wants to listen to the Minister at this time of night, not to me. I welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Lea of Lymm, to your Lordships’ House. She made an excellent maiden speech. I also welcome the Chancellor managing to deliver his Autumn...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Bill: Clause 1 - Extension of period for making Ministerial appointments by six weeks (29 Nov 2022)

Steven Baker: The Secretary of State is well aware of the issue that my right hon. and learned Friend raises. I am grateful to him for putting it on the record, and we will certainly take up the point that he makes. We do not think we can anticipate all the decisions that civil servants will need to take, so this House should not try to start prioritising some decisions over others. We are clear, however,...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform Bill): New Clause 12 - Assessment of impact on governance (29 Nov 2022)

Justin Madders: We’ll see about that. Whichever Benches I am on, I will always hold firm to the view that Parliament should be sovereign, and that Parliament should be the body that looks at laws and considers changes that affect our constituents. People voted in 2016 for Parliament to take back control, but the Bill does not do that; it gives control to Ministers. It wrenches control away from Parliament...

Public Bill Committee: Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [Lords]: Clause 29 - Inspection plan (29 Nov 2022)

Matthew Pennycook: We strongly support the introduction of routine inspections of social landlords. We therefore welcome clause 29. I would like to take the opportunity once again to commend the efforts of Lord Best in the other place and the perseverance of Grenfell United, which ensured that the Bill was strengthened. Routine inspections of social housing landlords must be central to the new consumer...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Chris Heaton-Harris: The hon. Gentleman will be talking about Sinn Féin Members of Parliament. I guess I would compare their take-home pay, allowances and everything with his—it would not be the same. I am just essentially taking the same principle and using it in a slightly different way. We do not, I am afraid, have the luxury of waiting for a restored Executive to take these key decisions. That is why it is...

Privilege (29 Nov 2022)

Deidre Brock: It is extremely unfortunate that matters have come to this, but I understand the conventions of the House that brought us here. The Scottish National party respects the need for a transparent and open process. The Leader of the House has previously spoken of the importance of parliamentary modernisation, and of how the House operates unlike any normal administrative centre in the public or...

Energy Security (29 Nov 2022)

Grant Shapps: I thank the hon. Member for welcoming me to the Dispatch Box. As he will know as Chair of the Select Committee, we have been working on the Sizewell deal for quite some time and we got to the Government investment decision stage yesterday. Of course, we have been talking to potential financiers along with EDF and the French Government. We are confident about the level of interest, but I have...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Schedule 3 - Regulations: procedure (29 Nov 2022)

Justin Madders: ...might want to pull over and take a breather. The point is that we just do not know the full extent of the Bill. If we do not know, and if the Ministers and civil servants do not know, we cannot be confident that there will be no unintended consequences, which is why the level of scrutiny that the Bill affords is inadequate. The wider problem is the way the Bill is framed. It seeks to...

Public Bill Committee: Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Advisory panel (29 Nov 2022)

Matthew Pennycook: The point about obvious issues around tenant representation and selection is well made, although those issues exist for the quality residents panel and the 250 members it selects. They have existed every time we have tried to create a body that gives voice to residents, so I do not think they are insurmountable. I welcome the fact that the hon. Gentleman thinks a minimum level of tenant...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 73 - Offence of failure to prevent fraud, false accounting or money laundering (29 Nov 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Both Ministers know that reform has been promised, and delayed, for a long time. The 2015 Conservative manifesto committed to making it illegal for companies to fail to put in place measures to prevent economic crime. The 2017 Ministry of Justice consultation on corporate liability reform sat for three and a half years. Inexplicably, it found that there was not enough evidence to pursue...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 71 - Suspicious Activity Reporting: risk rating (29 Nov 2022)

Seema Malhotra: It is a pleasure to speak briefly in support of the new clause tabled by my right hon. Friend the Member for Barking. It would amend the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 such that any disclosure made as part of the suspicious activity reporting regime must include a risk rating. My right hon. Friend outlined very effectively the reasons why the new clause is important. Much of the evidence in our...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 18 - Abolition of business impact target (29 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: My apologies for being late for the start of the sitting, Sir Gary. About eight years ago, I bought myself a car. For a long time, the car did pretty much what I wanted it to do, but now it is showing its age and is not really behaving the way I would like, and I am wondering whether it is worth keeping. It would be foolhardy for me to get rid of my car when I have no idea what kind of car I...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: SMEs: Recruitment Support (29 Nov 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman’s correspondence on this matter, and I look forward to meeting him on 7 December. The prompt payment code, which we introduced and which we reviewed recently, will be out for consultation very shortly, and I am keen to learn from best practice how we can make it more effective. The hon. Gentleman is right to say that there are many issues facing...

Written Answers — Treasury: Public Sector Debt (29 Nov 2022)

John Glen: As the Government’s official independent forecaster, the Government has a close working relationship with the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR). In the lead up to the recent Autumn Statement and accompanying OBR forecast, the OBR were engaged in the normal way. As is set out in the foreword of the OBR’s November Economic and Fiscal Outlook (EFO), the forecast process involved the OBR...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Safety Bill - Update (29 Nov 2022)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am repeating the following Written Ministerial Statement made today in the other place by my Right Honourable Friend, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Michelle Donelan MP: The Online Safety Bill is a vital, world-leading piece of legislation, designed to ensure that tech companies take more responsibility for the safety of their users, particularly children. It...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Safety Bill - Update (29 Nov 2022)

Michelle Donelan: The Online Safety Bill is a vital, world-leading piece of legislation, designed to ensure that tech companies take more responsibility for the safety of their users, particularly children. It is also vital that people can continue to express themselves freely and engage in pluralistic debate online. For that reason, I am today committing to make a number of changes to the Online Safety Bill...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Scotland (Cyberattack) (29 Nov 2022)

Tess White: The alarming reality is that, with on-going geopolitical turbulence, we are seeing more and more such malicious attacks and healthcare is clearly in the perpetrators’ crosshairs. How confident is the cabinet secretary in the resilience of health boards to defend against future attacks and does he agree with the former digital director of NHS National Services Scotland that the NHS needs to...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Jenni Minto: I will open with a slightly amended quotation from a novel that was written on Jura almost 75 years ago. It is George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. “It was a bright cold day in” November, “and the clocks were striking thirteen.” The clock is striking 13. In just 13 months, if the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill is passed at Westminster, thousands of laws that...

Luton Train Station Redevelopment (28 Nov 2022)

Huw Merriman: It is a pleasure to respond to my first Adjournment debate. I congratulate the hon. Member for Luton South (Rachel Hopkins) on securing today’s debate on Luton station in her constituency. I know her constituency well—she rumbled me as an Arsenal fan, but it is fair to say that my nearest top-quality football team would have been Luton, as I was brought up in Buckinghamshire. I have...
