Trade and Customs Policy - Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2017)

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, as the first of the winding-up speakers, I want to say that I have sat through many debates in this House, including in the position of Minister, and I do not think I have ever heard a debate that was more informed, contained more expert knowledge, raised more challenges and took a more intelligent approach to a crucial issue. It has been a privilege to sit through today’s...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Regulatory Alignment) (5 Dec 2017)

Michael Russell: ...would be a considerable step forward. That would resolve the issue. We also know that there can be no cherry picking of the single market. The idea that appears to be being floated at the moment in Downing Street—there are so many ideas being floated in Downing Street that I am surprised that it is not under water—involves the cherry picking of agriculture, elements of trade...

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: .... We must not forget that disparities exist between the four nations of the United Kingdom as well. The noble Lord, Lord Richard, spoke powerfully about this and very modestly did not mention his considerable role in chairing the Richard commission, which gave many signposts for the future, some of which are still being taken up. I take his point about the political symmetry not being...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Theresa Villiers: ...Grieve), requiring a more extensive national debate than we have currently had. There are pros and cons in determining whether the final say on our laws should rest with Parliament or with judges, but I hope that many will agree that this is a significant constitutional question. Before we could embark on that course of action, we would need to establish a stronger national consensus than...

Backbench Business: World Antibiotics Awareness Week — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (16 Nov 2017)

Steve Brine: ...everyone has said, it gives us a great opportunity to draw attention to an important issue—or the important issue. On the way in, I said to my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers), “I didn’t know you were interested in this subject,” and she said, “This is a critical issue.” It has come on to her radar, so she has come to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

Theresa May: ...that we set out, where we were very clear about that too. We want more homes to be built in this country. It is important that we see more homes being built particularly in London, but there are many opportunities to do that that do not affect the green belt.

Referendum on Scottish Independence — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (13 Nov 2017)

Lesley Laird: ...elections, the customer has clearly said, “We do not want independence.” For most people in Scotland, the endless debates on independence are a bit like the Christmas party guest who overstays their welcome, no matter how many hints they are given that the party is over. What the majority of the Scottish public thinks of independence has been made clear time and again. Their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Nov 2017)

Theresa May: .... The Secretary of State for Wales has spoken to the police and they will remain in touch over the coming days. Once again, our emergency services do an amazing job protecting us, as we see in so many instances. They never know when they are going to be called out to such a tragic incident.

Scottish Parliament: VAT Charges (Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service) (31 Oct 2017)

John Finnie: I join others in congratulating Ben Macpherson on securing the debate. The issue is important, as is the language that surrounds it. It may surprise some people—although not many who know me—that I did not necessarily support a single service. However, as the former convener of the Justice Committee said, we were driven to create a single service by cuts from Westminster. Where I...

Deaths in Police Custody - Statement (30 Oct 2017)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...’s Report of the Independent Review of Deaths and Serious Incidents in Police Custody, and the Government’s substantive response to the report and its recommendations. In 2015, the right honourable Theresa May met with the relatives of Olaseni Lewis and Sean Rigg, who had died tragically in police custody. The families’ experiences left her in no doubt that there was...

Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Oct 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Huyton: ...—in challenging schools, all serving poor communities and all working with disadvantaged young people. I understand why the Bill is needed and how tough it is both to raise the aspirations of young people in many of these communities and to open up opportunities in a proper and fair way. At times, it almost feels as if every time progress is made and barriers are broken, a new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2017)

Theresa Villiers: The Government are committed to planting 11 million trees. May I encourage the Secretary of State to ensure that many of them are planted in Chipping Barnet? He would be very welcome to visit to see those trees planted in our wonderful green spaces.

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration (25 Oct 2017)

Theresa Villiers: on what might have happened if that profoundly world-changing event had occurred earlier, but, close as it was to the publication, it did not halt the declaration. As we have already heard from many participants in the debate today, the declaration set in train the events that eventually led, some 30 years later, to the recreation of the state of Israel. Like others, I believe that is...

Live Animal Exports (Prohibition) (25 Oct 2017)

Theresa Villiers: ...bring in a Bill to prohibit the export of live farmed animals for slaughter or fattening; and for connected purposes. The export of live farm animals can cause immense and unnecessary suffering to many of the animals involved. There is evidence that public concern on this issue dates back as far as the 1950s, and even further in the case of the export of horses. I am sure that many Members...

Points of Order (25 Oct 2017)

John Bercow: I have received no such indication, but if memory serves me correctly, the hon. Lady has raised this matter in the House many times, including on an urgent basis. I seem to recall that she did so at the tail end of the 2010-15 Parliament and has done so on several other occasions since. Like the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone), the hon. Lady is a most versatile, experienced and...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Negotiations) (25 Oct 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: Members of the Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Relations Committee went to Brussels last month and met Michel Barnier. The European Union’s chief negotiator made many important points and addressed some complex issues. However, one of his simplest points was also one of the most telling. When negotiations fail, that usually means going back to the status quo, but in the case of...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (25 Oct 2017)

Theresa May: .... The important point about apprenticeships is that they are an opportunity for young people not to feel encouraged down an academic route when that does not work for them. When I meet apprentices, many say that it is the best thing they have done, and we want to make sure they are available for all those who could benefit from it.

European Council - Statement (23 Oct 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, we are grateful to the noble Baroness for repeating the Statement. It serves to remind us how interlinked with the EU we are on so many issues, as she outlined. It is not just about having common interests; we are co-dependent on issues that affect not just our economy, but our safety, security and well-being as a nation. We also add our appreciation for the work of the Royal Navy...

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Theresa May: I absolutely agree that it would be folly to abandon our independent nuclear deterrent. There are many reasons why it is important for us to maintain and, as Parliament has voted, to upgrade our independent nuclear deterrent. It is also important because it is part of the collective defence of Europe that we provide as a member of NATO.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Theresa May: I join the right hon. Gentleman in expressing our concern about the terrible terrorist attack that took place in Mogadishu, killing nearly 300 people and injuring many hundreds. Terrorism in Somalia undermines the stability of the horn of Africa. We will continue to work with the international community to try to bring stability to Somalia and that part of Africa. Of course, an aspect of that...
