Extension of Franchise (House of Lords) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Jul 2019)

Lord Naseby: ...felt that it was an unhealthy influence—on the other place. Of course, the whole matter is described in the 25th edition of Erskine May, which has just been published. What good work was done by David Natzler, whom a number of noble Lords will know personally. If you flick through that book—although it is not the sort of book you flick through, because it is quite a thick volume—you...

Young Adults: Public Service Funding - Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2019)

Lord Touhig: ...Liberal Prime Minister in the history of our country—a Welshman, naturally—David Lloyd George, speaking more than 100 years ago, after the passage in the other place of the Education Act, said that, with the powers it has created, “the State can watch over the welfare of its children through infancy and adolescence”. Those inspirational words are in my mind today as we debate this...

Non-Invasive Precision Cancer Therapies: Sanctuary Housing Group (18 Jul 2019)

Mark Francois: ...denied that Rochford had been responsible for any major planning delay, and absolutely insisted that it intended to pursue Sanctuary for the outstanding amount and was considering legal action. He said to me, “I will be having a meeting with our legal team on Monday morning.” Both those men cannot be right, and, to put it mildly, one of them must at least be “badly mistaken”, as...

Detainee Issues - Statement (18 Jul 2019)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...We must remember that at the heart of the historical allegations of torture and rendition lie the stories of dozens of victims of this abuse, many of them innocent of any crime.

Backbench Business: Human Rights in Saudi Arabia — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (18 Jul 2019)

Fabian Hamilton: ...countries, and I believe we should never be apologetic about that. Saudi Arabia is, of course, a human rights priority for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the hon. and gallant Gentleman said that disengagement from Saudi Arabia would send a very bad message to other human rights abusers: that if we did not like what was going on there, we had no more to do with them. Maybe he has...

Persecution of Christians Overseas (18 Jul 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the hon. Members for Croydon South (Chris Philp), for Congleton (Fiona Bruce), for Strangford (Jim Shannon) and for Glasgow East (David Linden) for securing this important debate. I also thank the hon.

Trade Unions - Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2019)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...of Minister for Health and Safety that I really engaged with trade unions for the first time and better understood what they were about. As our briefing describes, and as other noble Lords have said, health and safety is one of a range of issues where the ILO sets international standards which should be agreed by representatives of the world’s Governments, employers and workers. However,...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Progress reports (18 Jul 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...50, not to impose a no-deal Brexit. There would be a democratic constitutional crisis were the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) to prorogue Parliament. Last week, I said that, given the fact that a clear majority of MPs are opposed to the UK leaving without a deal, the Prorogation of Parliament to facilitate a no-deal would be unconstitutional, undemocratic...

Detainees (18 Jul 2019)

David Lidington: ...seen, in his report Sir Adrian did say that he looked at whether extra duties should be imposed on Ministers, and he considered that that was not part of what he should be proposing. However, as I said in my statement to the House, it is already the position that Ministers are bound by the law and by the ministerial code. The ministerial code requires Ministers to comply with the law in...

Business of the House (18 Jul 2019)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House. I do not know what he said to the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire (Pete Wishart), but he is not in his place. I think it is because he would not allow the hon. Gentleman and the rest of MP4 to get into his car. However, we are pleased to see that the hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) is present. I believe that the hon. Member for Perth...

Small and Village School Funding (17 Jul 2019)

Nick Gibb: It is a pleasure to reply to this debate under your beady eye, Sir David. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Neil O'Brien) on having secured this debate, and on his excellent opening speech. The Government recognise the importance of rural schools and the need to maintain access to good local schools in rural areas, which, as hon. Members have said, are so often at the...

NHS Workforce: England — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (17 Jul 2019)

Stephen Hammond: ...of nurses in training and related issues in a moment, to address the hon. Lady’s comments. Associated with the long-term plan is the people plan, which clearly recognises, to reference what I said about Health Education England, the significant role of that organisation in securing the NHS workforce for the future. That is why my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and...

Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [Lords] (17 Jul 2019)

Chris Matheson: ...in my own county, Bob Fousert, the chair of the police and crime scrutiny panel, attacked our deputy chief constable, Julie Cooke, for wearing a rainbow lanyard in support of LGBT rights. He said it was a political statement. Well, if standing up against hate crime is a political statement, then yes, it was a political statement. His appalling comments were condemned, including by David...

Music Education in England — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Jul 2019)

Tracy Brabin: ...as the head teacher of a school, creating a brilliant experience for young people and giving them an opportunity to live a full and enriched life. Finally, the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (David Warburton) talked about the extra pillar to EBacc. I had a meeting with the Secretary of State to discuss that. His response was, “It will not make a difference.” I hope that when he...

Brexit: European Investment Bank (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2019)

Lord Vaux of Harrowden: .... One might think that this could have given us some leverage to find a way to continue to benefit from EIB financing after Brexit. However, when pressed on the ambitions for a future relationship, David Lunn, the director for EU exit at the Treasury, said: “We would go into it with an open mind and try to deliver a mutually beneficial relationship on the scale that made sense for it to...

Public Health Funding: Enfield (16 Jul 2019)

Joan Ryan: ..., prolonging life and promoting good health is being seriously affected. The Government’s national health service long-term plan may have put prevention at the heart of its policy but, to quote David Finch, senior fellow at the Health Foundation: “The sustained cuts to the public health grant clearly run counter to these aims. The public health grant is not a nice-to-have. Without...

Defence Spending — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (16 Jul 2019)

Gerald Jones: ...are all aware, and as a result it does not get the focus it needs. She also talked about the conscious choice by Government in recent years to reduce Government spending on defence, which, as she said, was based on a false premise. There were some excellent contributions to the debate, from my right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones), the right hon. Members for New Forest...
