Farmed Animals: Cages — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (20 Jun 2022)

Matt Vickers: ensure that we continue to proudly lead the world on animal welfare. I welcome that the consultation is imminent, and the commitment to end the confinement of our animals. I pay tribute to the many hon. Members who have spoken in the debate. The hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Justin Madders) spoke of the need to include game birds in any ban and the need for urgent action....

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (13 Jun 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...and academies but it has prompted me to ask the Minister a wider question: what is the Government’s general policy in relation to grammar schools? We know that, in 2016, the then Prime Minister, Theresa May, said that she wanted to allow for an expansion in grammar schools. It was in the 2017 manifesto but nothing appeared in the Queen’s Speech; more recently, the Government have said...

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Jun 2022)

...into this area is extraordinary. At the moment, suspicionless stop and search is available in the context of serious violence. It was available in the context of terrorism. It was struck down and Theresa May had to abandon it. That is in the context of crimes that will potentially kill many, many people. We know that stop-and-search powers are implemented in a racist way. Under...

Ukraine: Defence Relationships - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2022)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...enable the UK and the EU to collaborate in the most effective way possible … We are keen for this to continue”. Every single word that I have said so far is a direct quote from Prime Minister Theresa May to the Munich Security Conference on 17 February 2018. Those plans had a degree of prescience as they now seem obvious, but they were reversed by her successor—in the same party...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Greg Smith: I want to start by addressing the many positives in this Bill that will make a significant difference going forward. I particularly welcome the ending of the zoning proposals in the original planning reforms put forward in 2020 to support the presumption for brownfield development and to support the improved enforcement of planning controls and the attempts to tackle land-banking. I also...

Health and Social Care Leadership Review (8 Jun 2022)

Theresa May: ...hon. Friend proceeds with care? He rightly says that good leadership of the NHS is important, for example, to ensure that we can deal with the covid backlogs, and that includes consultants. Too many experienced consultants are leaving the NHS because of problems with their pensions, so will he now commit to an urgent review of this issue, including looking at the change in the abatement scheme?

National Security Bill (6 Jun 2022)

Maria Eagle: ...that it is unequivocally a good thing that the Government have finally brought forward a Bill to update and reform the Official Secrets Act regime, as has been made clear across the House. As many have said, the legislation relating to the Official Secrets Act regime goes back many—very many—years and is no longer fit for purpose. It is not just the Government who do not think it is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business: Election of Speaker and Deputy Speakers (30 May 2022)

Daniel McCrossan: Thank you, Mr Acting Speaker, for stepping in today. Unfortunately, you have had to preside over what has been an entirely shameful episode. Many people at home will be watching this with even more frustration than they had four weeks ago. The message does not seem to have hit anywhere near the doors of the DUP Members on the opposite Benches. I am in my constituency office every day, and I...

Public Order Bill (23 May 2022)

Andy McDonald: ...most reactionary and authoritarian legislation in living memory. Instead of bringing forward measures to support people, following a global pandemic that has ripped through our communities, with many now in the dreadful situation of having to choose between heating their homes and eating, and with 40% of households expected to be in fuel poverty, Ministers are using parliamentary time to...

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Richard Fuller: ...finding long-term solutions to large, persistent problems and having the courage to pursue them fully. The debate today is entitled “Tackling short and long-term cost of living increases”, and many of the contributions have rightly focused on the immediate pressures on the cost of living. If I may, I want to mention a couple of points that look at longer-term solutions. The first...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...the Institute for Government’s deputy director Hannah White, Held in Contempt: What’s Wrong with the House of Commons?, which sets out in detail the deliberate sidelining of the Commons by both Theresa May and Boris Johnson, and the decline in public respect for Parliament that has enabled them to go so far. I recommend even more strongly the report by the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson,...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Theresa May: ...had not been listened to by those in authority who had a responsibility to respond. That, we discovered from consultation across the country, was not unique to Grenfell Tower. Sadly, there were too many occasions where those responsible for social housing were simply not listening to the points their tenants were raising. It is important that we enhance the ability of tenants to have raise...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (26 Apr 2022)

Lord Cormack: ...I strongly sympathise with the points made by my noble friend Lord Hailsham. Whatever the merits or otherwise of the policy—and I strongly sympathise with the brief but trenchant intervention of Theresa May in the other place—it ought to be for Parliament to make the ultimate decision. To my mind, the right reverend Prelate’s amendment is far too long; my noble friend Lord...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (26 Apr 2022)

Lord Paddick: ...concerned about immigration, this Bill, which targets asylum seekers and victims of modern slavery, is not focused on their primary concern. In an article in the Telegraph yesterday, Nick Timothy, Theresa May’s former chief of staff, wrote about his concerns about mass immigration. Nowhere in that article does he mention asylum seekers, victims of modern slavery or the Nationality and...

Scottish Parliament: Asylum Seekers (21 Apr 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: safety from war and persecution. In that decision, the UK Government is ignoring the welfare of extremely vulnerable people. For all those reasons, that policy has, rightly, been condemned by many. Given that we have heard Theresa May—who as Home Secretary sent “go home” vans around Glasgow—describe that policy in the House of Commons as morally, ethically and practically...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (20 Apr 2022)

Maggie Chapman: ...of cold, damp and hunger, and those who profit by it. We are, to our great sadness and collective shame, acutely familiar with the concept of the hostile environment—that malevolent invention of Theresa May’s Home Office. Those toxic seeds are now bearing their poisoned fruit in the UK Nationality and Borders Bill and in the proposal to outsource our obligations to the most vulnerable...

Cop26: Glasgow Climate Pact: Businesses (20 Apr 2022)

Theresa Villiers: Will the COP26 President work with the agriculture sector on pursuing his COP26 goals? We have some of the most sustainable farming practices anywhere in the world, and many farmers and growers want to go further in playing their part in protecting nature and safeguarding the climate.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion N1 (as an amendment to Motion N) (4 Apr 2022)

Lord Coaker: ...Members of this House, that the Modern Slavery Act 2015—I got it out and read it again—is a signpost piece of legislation of which we are all proud, and one of the legacies of Prime Minister Theresa May. Throughout our debates and in the amendments that we are debating now, we are trying to improve a piece of legislation that should not be in here—but, having said that, we will try...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A (31 Mar 2022)

Lord Coaker: the points that my noble friend made; they deserve some credit for seeing sense. On the important work that the noble Lord, Lord Russell, has done with the noble Baroness, Lady Newlove, and many others on misogyny and other associated issues, I say that he is another example to us all of how to give bring about change. The Minister’s comments at the Dispatch Box today show real...

General Practice: Large Housing Developments — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (29 Mar 2022)

Jane Hunt: ...I am still a borough councillor for Charnwood Borough Council, which I will refer to. I am also the chair of the all-party parliamentary group for district councils. As the Minister can see, he has many friends on the Government Benches, but we suffer some frustrations, and I look to him for advice and assistance. We have two main frustrations: one he can clearly do something about, and...
