School (Reform of Pupil Selection) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (2 Dec 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: this debate. It is a good opportunity, too, for the Minister to state expressly the Government’s offer and promise in relation to selective education and grammar schools. Going back, in 2016, Theresa May as Prime Minister said that the Government intended to lift the ban on the creation of new selective schools. That was in the 2017 manifesto. Since then, we know that, had the Schools...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Islamic Centre of England and Islamic Human Rights Commission: Finance (2 Dec 2022)

Theresa Villiers: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether any public funding has been allocated to the (a) Islamic Human Rights Commission Trust and (b) Islamic Centre of England in each of the last five years.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 61 (23 Nov 2022)

Dehenna Davison: The hon. Member will be pleased to know that I have a note to return to that in a moment. My right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) and my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Bob Seely) raised some important points. We will come to many of their amendments on the second day of Report, when they will have an opportunity to speak on them in more detail. That...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living: Mortgage Rescue Scheme (23 Nov 2022)

Fulton MacGregor: No. One of the reasons why I have not taken any interventions—though I will see whether I have time when I get close to the end of my speech—is that I want to spend the rest of my time paying tribute to some of the amazing local charities and individuals in my constituency who are working to help people deal with this Tory-imposed cost of living crisis. It is important that we come to the...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Paula Barker: ..., the hailstones are raining down and millions of people have awoken to the con. The British people have been ripped off and left with a bill for unfinished work—a botched job—and still the company is unwilling to take any responsibility. It does not matter whether it was David the joiner, Theresa the labourer, Boris the apprentice or Liz the plasterer; the whole company is...

Disposable Barbecues (22 Nov 2022)

Selaine Saxby: ...are likely to become more regular. This year saw more than 700 wildfires burning 70 square miles of some of our most vulnerable and precious habitats—for what? The right to scald a sausage anywhere of your choosing regardless of the risks. We need to adjust our approach to hot weather, and one of the products that causes some of the biggest issues to local communities is disposable...

Housing Market - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2022)

Baroness Thornhill: ..., to this House. I look forward to what will no doubt be a thoughtful, considered and pertinent contribution to this debate. We worked constructively alongside each other in Hertfordshire for many years. I hope to do so again in your Lordships’ House. I will make a quick aside to the noble Lord, Lord Lilley. I was dubbed “the pro-development mayor” by my political opponents, so...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Devolution) (17 Nov 2022)

Neil Gray: ...Government. That is why the committee has produced the report that it has produced. We also had excellent contributions from Collette Stevenson, Mark Ruskell and Gillian Martin. The fact that so many strong speeches were made serves only to highlight the debate’s importance. In considering Brexit and devolution, it is important to recognise three underlying points. First, Brexit has been...

Parliament: Deferred Peerages - Question (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Burns committee did of course report and the Prime Minister of the day, Theresa May, decided not to sign up to its recommendations—although, as has been said, there was a manifesto commitment to look at the role of the Lords, with any reform needing careful consideration and not being piecemeal. We obviously also have the very important House of Lords Appointments Commission. Upon...

Sri Lanka (9 Nov 2022)

Theresa Villiers: ...bodies are allowed to impose conditions in relation to economic matters, they should be imposing conditions in relation to military spending, cronyism and corruption? Those are reasonable asks of any bail-out.

Police and Crime Commissioners - Question for Short Debate (31 Oct 2022)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...this debate. It is an interesting topic that we will keep coming back to, because we are facing legislation that will inevitably drag it to the fore. In November 2011, the then Home Secretary Theresa May made the Policing Protocol Order, which stated: “The establishment of PCCs has allowed the Home Office to withdraw from day-to-day policing matters, giving the police greater freedom to...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 7 (31 Oct 2022)

Lord Bew: ...that I have been living for a very long time with Article 16 and the potential illegality or otherwise of the Government’s legislation. When I first encountered it, in fact, it was Article 15 in Theresa May’s Bill; it was that long ago. I read and reread it until I was blue in the face. Let me say what the problem is in attempting to challenge the Government’s position. The best...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Oct 2022)

Jamie Greene: ...any more than I believe that being gay is a mental illness. I support previous commitments, publicly made by UK Conservative Governments, to remove that from the process. If it is good enough for Theresa May and Penny Mordaunt, it is good enough for me. The second is that reform of this nature must be achieved in a way that betters the rights of everyone and does not degrade them—a point...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment to the Amendment to the Motion (25 Oct 2022)

Lord Dodds of Duncairn: ...about, so we should not generalise here. We must take the evidence of the damage that has been done economically and constitutionally. On international law, I bow to the superior knowledge of many very distinguished lawyers and practitioners in this House, but the noble Lord, Lord Bew, is right when he argues about the prior position of the Belfast agreement and that the protocol...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (25 Oct 2022)

David Simmonds: The UK is party to many international legal arrangements, many of which do not enjoy a great deal of scrutiny in this House. Having heard several Members raise points about scrutiny in respect of EU law, I think it is important for us to acknowledge that there are a number of Members here with direct experience of that scrutiny process. We have heard about the Council of Ministers, in which...

Carer’s Leave Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Dean Russell: I should start by letting anyone watching on Parliament TV know that this is not a glitch—I am genuinely on my feet. It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bradford East (Imran Hussain). I thank the hon. Member for North East Fife (Wendy Chamberlain) for introducing this important legislation. I thank all hon. Members who have spoken on this important issue. We must...

Protection from Redundancy (Pregnancy and Family Leave) Bill (21 Oct 2022)

Imran Hussain: ...Strategy to produce a workable Bill that can pass through the House. The Bill before us has cross-party support, as was evident from the contributions. Those of us who have been in this place for any length of time know how difficult it is to get cross-party support—especially on a private Member’s Bill—so that is a testament to his hard work. I know that hon. Members across the...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Oct 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: not of concern, then how could we lecture others such as Bolivia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, South Sudan, Ethiopia and, of course, Russia and China? What about Article 16? As my right honourable friend Theresa May said in the other place, “Article 16 does not justify this Bill … Article 16 negates the legal justification for the Bill.”—[Official Report, Commons, 27/6/22; col. 63.] I...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Oct 2022)

Lord Howell of Guildford: .... I am sorry that the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Birmingham is leaving us. I begin by reminding your Lordships of something they probably do not need reminding of, but the media and many critics of the Government certainly do. After the two years of shutdown of the entire economy during Covid, plus now a war in Europe, after a huge swelling of public spending to cope with all...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Harris of Haringey: My Lords, I am sorry for that slightly unseemly moment. There have been many fine tributes and I am sure that there will be many more from all corners of the House. That reflects the way in which we have all been touched by the life of Her Majesty the late Queen. We have all suffered a loss but, until Thursday evening, I had not appreciated how much of a loss was felt around the world. I...
