Housing: Availability and Affordability - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Baroness Grender: ...we solve the issue in this worthwhile debate and dramatically improve the availability and affordability of housing, more people will end up at the very end of the food chain we have been describing, and too many will face homelessness. Last March in this Chamber there was a jaw-dropping moment. The noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, set out with some eloquence the need for councils to build more...

Iran: Human Rights — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alistair Burt: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today, Ms Buck. I appreciate the opportunity to respond to an excellent debate introduced by my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers), to whom I pay tribute, as colleagues have done, not only for her excellent work in Northern Ireland, but for her steadfast support of human rights, particularly those involving...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Theresa May: ...it, and that helps people to get into the workplace, earn more and provide for their families. The system that we inherited from Labour did not do that. It was far too complicated, there were far too many different sorts of payment and, crucially, too many of those who earned more found themselves with less money in their pockets. Under Labour, too many people were better off on benefits....

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Mike Amesbury: .... Important as the Brexit questions are, and the consequences will of course ultimately be significant, they are questions that can sometimes seem a little removed from the day-to-day life of many of our constituents. Today’s debate matters because it concerns something that has an immediate and constant relationship with almost everything that individuals, families and businesses do...

Devolution (Constitution Committee Reports) - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Bruce of Bennachie: My Lords, the mood of the House seems to confirm a long-held view of mine: that the UK needs a root-and-branch overhaul if it is to hold together. That is behind many of the speeches that we have heard. The destructive forces of nationalism—British, Scottish and Irish—have divided us to such an extent that rational decision-making is becoming nearly impossible. A referendum that I...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Theresa May: I thank my hon. Friend, who reaffirms the point I was making earlier: there are many in the European Union who do believe that the time is now right to move on to trade negotiations.

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (Roll-out) (3 Oct 2017)

Maree Todd: ...Cameron would not take an intervention from me about the flaws that have been uncovered in the Highland area, which we both represent. It seems that he lives in an alternative world to me and many others in the Highlands. I quote: “If universal credit ... continues ... food banks won’t be able to catch everyone who falls”. That is the stark warning that the Trussell...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Grenfell Tower Inquiry Terms of Reference (14 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: ...not be ignored and I am determined that these important questions are not left unanswered. As a first step, I have asked my Hon. Friend the Housing Minister (Alok Sharma) to personally meet and hear from as many social tenants as possible, as well as other residents of social housing estates, both in the immediate area around Grenfell Tower and across the country. The Housing Minister has...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Gordon Marsden: ...Scottish students and 11,745 Northern Irish students. Rising fees might have been a coherent defence but, as MillionPlus has said, there has been no direct grant available for university courses in so many subjects since 2014-15. There is an alternative, however. It that was outlined by the Labour party at the last general election, but I will not repeat the eloquent pledges of my hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: ...to arrive in the next few days, along with over 60 police. More than 40 tonnes of aid has now arrived. I am sure that Members across the House would like to join me in paying tribute to the hard work of the many people, military and civilian, who are doing an incredible job in difficult circumstances. This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others. In addition to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: .... I can only apologise to her for the fact that she has not yet received a response. I acknowledged at the time, and I continue to acknowledge, that the attack in Manchester damaged lives in many ways. There are those who were injured and are living with the consequences of their injuries, those who lost loved ones—relatives or friends—and are affected by that, and those whose...

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...be member states, outlines the process and explains what needs to happen. With departure, surely we would expect something similar. We need, on both sides, to identify what it is that we are leaving and how we are to go about it. Accession negotiations take many years because there is so much detail associated with membership of the European Union, so at this stage perhaps we should not...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Paul Farrelly: ..., with its flawed approach, needs to go back to the drawing board and return in better shape in October. I will not dwell on clause 7 or any other clauses for too long—they have been well and truly dissected by many good speeches already—but I will show my constituents, to whom I will have to explain my votes, that I have indeed read the Bill by saying that when I got down to...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord Shinkwin: ...noble Lord, Lord Bew. I, too, congratulate my noble friend Lord McColl on introducing this important Bill. I want to make four points. First, I agree with other noble Lords that David Cameron and Theresa May in particular are surely to be commended for once again putting Great Britain at the forefront of the fight against slavery. In her then capacity as Home Secretary, the Prime Minister...

Age of Criminal Responsibility Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord on his persistence in bringing his important Bill back to the House of Lords. He and I have been partners in crime on many issues over the years, if I may say so, and I share his commitment and concern about what happens in the youth justice system. With the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, we used to chair juvenile courts in London and it was all too clear...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (7 Sep 2017)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...he identified the original “giant evils”, as he described them, of ignorance, idleness, squalor, want and disease. It is a failure of progress that, if we strip out the antiquated language, many of those evils still hold sway in our society today. We should remember that, until this decade, the systems of welfare in this country had not undergone significant reform since their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: As I have said on many occasions, overall immigration has been good for the UK, but people want to see it controlled—that, I think, is what people want to see as a result of our leaving the EU. We can already exercise controls in relation to those who come to this country from outside the EU, and the Government continue to believe that it is important to have net migration at...

Brexit: UK-Irish Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: ...hate it, but it will be their duty to apply the rules that apply at all the external frontiers of the European Union. Two-thirds of the member states of the European Union have the duty of controlling a part of the external frontier of the European Union. Many of them, too, have a region just across the frontier, just outside, with which they have very close ties—a region in the...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2017-18 (5 Sep 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: ...the Devolution (Further Powers) Committee, which debated the outcomes of the Smith commission. We interrogated Scottish and UK ministers and we heard a good deal from civil society. The sense from many of those witnesses was of the transformative potential of the new powers. SNP ministers and committee members lost no opportunity to argue that more devolved powers would enable...
