Brexit: European Arrest Warrant (European Union Committee) - Motion to Take Note (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...arrest warrant is to law enforcement in this country and thus to our internal security, and which gradually helped to convince an initially sceptical Home Secretary in the coalition Government, one Theresa May, that it was in the national interest to retain the European arrest warrant in operation here even if one had, as we then did, the right to opt out of it. Apparently, that remains...

Brexit and the Labour Market (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (8 Feb 2018)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I thank the noble Lords, Lord Forsyth and Lord Hollick, for the report. I had intended to say that on many of the issues we appear to have considerable agreement. Then the noble Lord, Lord Reid, spoke and brought in a range of issues on which we may not have quite so much agreement. The Liberal Democrats have not yet changed our minds on identity cards. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Feb 2018)

Theresa May: I thank my hon. Friend for raising this point. I have known Lord Shinkwin for many, many years. He has been a valiant champion of the rights of disabled people over those years. His own experience and his work in public life, particularly in the other place, are a fine example of how disabled people can be standing up, speaking up and ensuring that they take their rightful place in public...

Scottish Parliament: Undercover Policing (7 Feb 2018)

Michael Matheson: ..., a Guardian article claimed that undercover officers routinely adopted a tactic of promiscuity. We have heard in previous debates in the chamber about undercover officers having long-term relationships with members of the groups they had infiltrated. In 2012, Theresa May appointed Mark Ellison QC to carry out a review of the police investigation into the murder of Stephen Lawrence for the...

Housing, Planning and the Green Belt (6 Feb 2018)

Theresa Villiers: ...extend from Brighton on the south coast to Cambridge in the north-east. That’s what happens if you don’t have a green belt.” In a densely populated island, the green belt enriches our lives in many ways. It provides a precious opportunity to reconnect with the natural environment and spend time with friends and family outdoors. A substantial part of my constituency is in...

Scottish Parliament: Women’s Right to Vote (Centenary) (6 Feb 2018)

Rachael Hamilton: ...who supported me during my election campaign. The point is that if women are to succeed in politics they cannot do so alone. I am also proud to be part of Women2Win, which was set up by Prime Minister Theresa May and Baroness Jenkins. Women2Win works to help female candidates to knock down barriers and obstacles, and aims to encourage more women into politics. The first part of doing that...

Role of Women in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (5 Feb 2018)

Baroness Jenkin of Kennington: ...was a growing groundswell of support for women’s suffrage before the First World War, the contentious issue of the parliamentary campaign was not whether women should be able to vote, but how many. All the political parties were anxious about extending the franchise because of how it would affect them. Willoughby Dickinson was a Liberal MP—later a Labour Member of this...

Investigatory Powers (Codes of Practice) Regulations 2018 - Motions to Approve (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...if the House will allow me, I should like to make a few comments about what happened during Oral Questions yesterday. Perhaps I may say that the decision of the Prime Minister, the right honourable Theresa May, to refuse the resignation of the noble Lord, Lord Bates, was one of her better decisions. I also commend the noble Lord, Lord Taylor of Holbeach, on how he picked up the loose ball...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Saatchi: ...than trade deals and that human beings possess the power of imagination, and can conjure up in their minds a vision of a better world and a better life. So far in this debate, we have certainly been presented with many nightmare scenarios. So now, as we approach the end, perhaps I may paint your Lordships a picture, if you will allow me, of the dream scenario: a happy ending to the story....

Kew Gardens (Leases) (30 Jan 2018)

Zac Goldsmith: ...London or even to the UK, but to the whole world. I feel immensely fortunate that my constituency covers Kew, but my interest in, and support for, the gardens goes well beyond my role as the local MP. Many Members will know the beauty of Kew. It is a UNESCO world heritage site that attracts nearly 2 million visitors every year, including 100,000 schoolchildren, and is an oasis of calm and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Higgins: ...that we should therefore take stock of the situation we are now in. We are effectively debating the principle of the Bill, which tends to embody the result of the referendum. Not all that many of those in the Chamber today took part in the debate on the referendum Bill. I took an active part and what was absolutely clear was that the Government had introduced a Bill on a referendum which...

Open Skies Agreement (Membership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Jan 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...to Brexit. I have to admit that I am not sure what the origins of that chaos are. Could it be that the Government do not know what they are doing? Could it be that they are keeping their progress on this and many other issues from us? Or is it simply that they are crossing their fingers and hoping for the best? Someone described extracting the UK from the European Union as like trying to...

Proscription of Hezbollah (25 Jan 2018)

Stuart McDonald: ...bombing of the Israeli embassy was followed by the detonation of explosives outside the Argentinian-Israeli Mutual Association. Plots and activities have extended to Thailand, Nigeria, Cyprus and many other countries. Those arguing in favour of the motion have made a powerful case for full proscription. The right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) and others have...

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Motion to Take Note (25 Jan 2018)

Lord Bilimoria: ...of 62% and 55.8% respectively. In Wales, 52.5% voted to leave the EU and in England 53.4% voted to leave. There is no question about it: the referendum has been a huge divide in this country. Many have said that it has been a demonstration of English nationalism. In the Supreme Court Miller case, the decision of the court was that devolved legislatures did not have a veto on the UK’s...

Scottish Parliament: Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Repeal) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Jan 2018)

John Mason: ...needs to be targeted. Secondly, people say that something cannot be allowed in one place but not another. That is wrong: we allow drinking inside but not on the street; and alcohol is allowed after 9 pm in many places, but not on trains. If we have a problem in a particular place—such as at a football ground—it is perfectly reasonable to tackle it at that place. Thirdly, people...

Pubs Code 2016 — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

Richard Harrington: ...is part of the learning process. The Government remain fully committed to the pubs code, because we intend to ensure that tied tenants can operate in a fair environment that allows their businesses to thrive. Many Members, but in particular my hon. Friend the Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont), went through what the Government are doing to support pubs. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 2018)

Theresa May: My hon. Friend makes an important point. The issue of engineering, and particularly the need for more women to see engineering as a career, is something that I have promoted for many years now. Engineers are vital to our economy, which is why we want to see everyone, whatever their background—this is about not only gender but background and ethnicity—having a chance to build a...

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Andrew Percy: ...I did last year, and will clearly last longer than I did in the job. I also thank other colleagues who have taken part in this debate. This has been an incredible debate. It was great to hear the many testimonies of survivors themselves. We heard about Rudi Oppenheimer from the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg), and about his constituent Oscar, a refugee from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Jan 2018)

Theresa May: My hon. Friend raises an important issue. He is absolutely right that for too many people loneliness is the sad reality of modern life, and we know that loneliness has an impact not only on mental health, but on physical health. Later today I will be pleased to host a reception at No. 10 Downing Street for the Jo Cox Foundation to look at the issue. I think that the work that Jo Cox started,...

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Lord Liddle: ...the noble Lord’s optimism that we are on course for some kind of beneficial outcome, but I fear not. It is worth remembering that the soundbite, “No deal is better than a bad deal”, was one of Theresa May’s more politically misjudged lines in her Lancaster House speech last January. It was the Prime Minister who gave life to this soundbite and opened up in the...
