EU Exit Negotiations (15 Oct 2018)

Theresa May: When we were negotiating the citizens’ rights element of the December joint report, I was asked in this House on many occasions to give a unilateral declaration of the rights of EU citizens here in the UK. I refused to do that until we could negotiate reciprocal arrangements for United Kingdom citizens living in the remaining member states of the European Union. In some of those member...

Arts: Impact of Brexit - Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2018)

Lord Bragg: ..., failed to fight for his belief and just scuttled off. He should not be forgiven. But why should we follow his pusillanimous example? The creative sector employs more than 2 million people in this country, many of them in niche highly-skilled jobs. It contributed £91.8 billion to the UK economy in 2015-16 and showed an increase of twice that of the UK economy as a whole. Its growth...

Criminal Records (Childhood Offences) (10 Oct 2018)

Theresa Villiers: ...down for work in healthcare and schools. We have one of the most punitive approaches in the world to childhood criminal records, and the case for change is strong. Support for reform has come from many quarters, including the Select Committee on Justice, the Ministry of Justice’s Charlie Taylor review, the Law Commission, and a number of charities and campaigning organisations. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Oct 2018)

Theresa May: I thank my hon. Friend for raising what is an important issue for many parents. We are concerned that some summer-born and prematurely born children whose parents choose to delay their entry to school until compulsory school age may be missing essential teaching in a reception year. I understand that the Department for Education is looking at how best to make changes without creating...

Scottish Parliament: Challenge Poverty Week (4 Oct 2018)

Neil Findlay: ...—yet nothing much changes. In fact, poverty is increasing and, shamefully—this did not get the coverage that it deserved last week—life expectancy in Scotland is falling for the first time in many years. That is an utter disgrace and an abject failure of public policy. We know that the Tory benefit cuts, the stagnation of wages, precarious work, public spending cuts and...

Scottish Parliament: UK Trade Arrangements: Scotland’s Role (25 Sep 2018)

Angela Constance: The point has been made repeatedly throughout today’s debate that trade agreements are not just about how many goods at what price. In today’s world, trade agreements reach far and wide. They encroach on public policy and impact deeply on our day-to-day lives, cutting across both reserved and devolved competencies. I f we believe in inclusive growth that values fairness and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: ...that Members across the House will wish to join me in congratulate Alastair Cook on his fantastic service to English cricket. As England’s highest-ever-scoring batsman, his incredible career had many highlights, including the magnificent 147 in his last innings, against India. We wish him the very best for his future. This morning, I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: .... But as I have made clear, the current system in Northern Ireland is flawed. It is not working; it is not working for soldiers, for police officers or for victims—a group, in fact, that includes many soldiers and police officers as well. Although a number of terrorist murders from the troubles are actively under investigation by the Police Service of Northern Ireland and other...

Trade Bill - Second Reading (11 Sep 2018)

Baroness Meyer: .... In between, we also experienced the horrors of 9/11, which are to be remembered today. No trough could have been deeper than when, in 1994, my children were illegally retained by their German father in Germany. During the next 10 years, despite the supposed international conventions, I saw my sons for a total of only 24 hours. To be separated from your children in this way is beyond a...

Salisbury Update (5 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point and gives me a further opportunity to commend the excellent work done by the national health service when faced with the attack in Salisbury. Many people would have found it difficult to deal with such a difficult case, so the fact that they did is a huge commendation for the professionalism of our national health service. A decontamination review...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Gloria De Piero: This has been an interesting and wide-ranging debate. I shall try to summarise many of the points that have been made. The right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) and the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) talked about the need to tackle the high premiums applying to young drivers. My hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff Central (Jo Stevens) spoke about her...

Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Hain: ...want to keep Britain in a customs union. As my noble friend Lord Tunnicliffe and the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, have convincingly argued, and as Labour has compellingly argued, the case for a customs union with the EU is overwhelming—in order, among many other things, to avoid rules of origin requirements and check whether goods qualify for preferential tariff arrangements. According to...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2018-19 (4 Sep 2018)

Stuart McMillan: ...Orchard View hospital, which is the Inverclyde adult and older persons continuing care hospital—that was yet another chapter in the long, drawn-out saga to replace the not-fit-for-purpose Ravenscraig hospital. There are many more such examples, but time prevents me from continuing down that line. On the issue of mental health, every member of this Parliament should welcome...

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...passed the EU withdrawal Act through Parliament to ensure that our statute book functions after exit, whatever the outcome of the negotiations. I am grateful to this House and the other place for the many hours of scrutiny devoted to that vital piece of legislation. We are now embarking on the next step in the process of delivering a smooth Brexit for people and businesses. Since June last...

Written Answers — Home Office: Litter (24 Jul 2018)

Theresa Villiers: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many Community Protection Notices have been issued for littering in England in each year since the enactment of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Baroness Ludford: ...Government to negotiate a trade deal in good faith. Le Monde notes that the Government have sent “contradictory messages”—really helpful. The whole country is tired of the Conservative civil war. Brexit was always going to be a painful process, as many noble Lords, not least on my side, have explained, but this civil war inside the Tory party—not the easy deal they...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Intelligence Policy Oversight (23 Jul 2018)

Theresa May: ...before Parliament on 20 December 2017 (HC 655). I responded to this on the same day in a Written Ministerial Statement. The Government has given additional consideration to the Committee’s many important conclusions and recommendations, and I have today laid a further Government response before the House (Cm 9678). Copies of the response have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (18 Jul 2018)

Lord Alderdice: ...little debate about justice. He addressed policing and—not always to people’s pleasure—he addressed the legal system and how much lawyers were paid. He also did a lot of work on prisons. In many ways, public debate became much more thoughtful, reflective and quiet because he was there. It is easy to forget that he was there because he was prepared to take a considerable...
