Covid-19: Animal Welfare — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (16 Mar 2021)

Victoria Prentis: ...under your chairmanship. I join in thanking the hon. Member for Pontypridd (Alex Davies-Jones), inspired by Dotty and Dora, for organising this debate today. It has been thoughtful and full of many ideas, to which I will try to respond. If I do not manage to deal with everything, then please do come and talk to me at any point about animal welfare. It is right that we talk about this a...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 75 (15 Mar 2021)

Baroness Meacher: ...cost any taxpayer money, but it would, as the noble Baroness, Lady Burt, has indicated, make a big difference to the lives of an awful lot of people and, indeed, improve their productivity at work. Many employers are already extending their duty of care responsibilities to employees who are the victims of domestic abuse. The aim of the amendment is to extend this good practice to all...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (15 Mar 2021)

Theresa May: ...for death by dangerous driving, which reflects the change I proposed in my ten-minute rule Bill. It was supported, as the shadow Home Secretary said, across the whole of the House, because many Members of this House have constituency cases that have been affected by this, as my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine) indicated in his intervention. My desire to bring this...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 70 (15 Mar 2021)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...to settlement for migrant victims who hold spousal visas.”—[ Official Report, 8/2/21; col. 98.] The position of those who entered on other types of visa was addressed by the right honourable Theresa May on Report in the Commons. She took the point that generally they would have to show that they have independent financial support but noted that “it is perfectly possible that they...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 50 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: It is a great privilege to take part in this debate and to hear the voices of so many people with expertise in this field —sometimes direct experience—speaking with wisdom and compassion about why the law had to change. I remind noble Lords that not so very long ago there used to be a way of referring to domestic abuse as “a domestic”, as though it were lesser than ordinary crime. It...

Pig Husbandry (Farrowing) (10 Mar 2021)

Edward Leigh: ...—600 square miles of north Lincolnshire countryside, with very varied agriculture, including a number of pig farmers. As my hon. Friend said, both of us have been campaigning for Brexit for many years and this is an opportunity to further animal welfare. I am wholly in favour of any measures to try to improve animal welfare. I love animals as much as he does. However, I disagree about...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income tax (charge) (8 Mar 2021)

John Glen: ...we have had contributions from well over 75 right hon. and hon. Members from across the United Kingdom—from Blackpool to Buckingham, and from Stockton North and South to Somerset. There may be many geographical differences between us and differences of opinion, but I think all of us, no matter our political allegiance or the location of our constituencies, are united in our desire to...

Press Freedom and Safety of Protesters: India — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (8 Mar 2021)

Brendan O'Hara: ...thousands of people from across the UK who have signed the e-petition, asking that we in this House take the time to consider the plight of Indian farmer protesters and the difficult situation of many journalists currently working in India. I acknowledge in particular the contribution made by my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day), and thank him for the...

Covid-19: Cultural and Entertainment Sectors (2 Mar 2021)

John Whittingdale: ...the Members for Clacton (Giles Watling), for High Peak (Robert Largan), for Bury North (James Daly) and for Bolton West (Chris Green), and my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers). They all pointed to the vast contribution—£116 billion—that the creative industries make, supporting 2.1 million jobs. However, they also went on to point out that the...

Town and Country Planning (Border Facilities and Infrastructure) (EU Exit) (England) Special Development Order 2020 (SI 2020/928) - Motion to Regret (11 Feb 2021)

Baroness Randerson: My Lords, I make it clear that I in no way question the need for the proposed border facilities to take pressure off some of our ports. Many port sites are too congested to process the number of vehicles they deal with, now that border checks are so much more complex. Unfortunately, in keeping within the strange time warp within which we now operate in this House, we are debating something...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (11 Feb 2021)

Theresa Villiers: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The arrogance and intransigence expressed in Commissioner Šefčovič’s letter to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has caused many of us to conclude that the EU’s professed concern for Northern Ireland was only ever a disguise for its cynical negotiating objectives. Will my right hon. Friend take a tough approach with the EU on fixing the immediate problems...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 178 (10 Feb 2021)

Baroness Meacher: ...wherever possible, parents should be involved in that therapy. Much quicker and more sustained improvements for the child can generally then be achieved. Having been involved in family therapy work many years ago, I know just how powerful and beneficial it can be for all members of the family. The second part of the amendment would ensure that effective preparation for adult...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 149 (8 Feb 2021)

Baroness Sanderson of Welton: ...each storyline, society’s understanding grows and what was once considered acceptable is not any longer. The Government should be proud of the part they have played in reaching this point. When Theresa May introduced the offence of coercive and controlling behaviour in 2015, England and Wales became the first countries in the world to recognise and criminalise this behaviour. With the...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 148 (8 Feb 2021)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, as I and many others said at Second Reading, the biggest hole in the Bill is its failure to make any provision for migrant women—a group of domestic abuse survivors who are let down badly by current provisions. I therefore strongly support these amendments, which, in different ways, would fill that hole and ensure that abused migrant women receive the same support as other...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (5th Day) (8 Feb 2021)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...clients. The noble Baroness, Lady Mallalieu, was right; we have perhaps as a country been slow to appreciate the scale of coercive behaviour. I am very proud that it was my right honourable friend Theresa May who provided for the offence of “controlling or coercive behaviour” in Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015. That offence applies only to those who are “personally...

Air Quality (3 Feb 2021)

Theresa Villiers: ...environmental threat to public health. Every year, thousands of people have their health damaged or their lives shortened by air pollution. This problem is especially serious in London, with many of the country’s worst pollution hotspots here in our capital city. Our air is now cleaner than at any point since the industrial revolution, and the Government are meeting all but one of their...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 55 (1 Feb 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...data sharing. In answer to the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, I point out that “hostile environment” was of course coined by the Labour Government back in 2007, not under my right honourable friend Theresa May. The main purpose of these amendments is to make sure that migrant victims of domestic abuse are not deterred from reporting that abuse or seeking support for fear that immigration...

Environment Bill: New Clause 1 - Environmental Principles: Public Authorities (26 Jan 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...thank all those right hon. and hon. Friends and Members who have tabled amendments and contributed to today’s debate, helping to scrutinise this Bill. They have highlighted the importance that so many people place on the issue of the environment, and how important it is that we tackle biodiversity loss, climate change, and environmental risks to public health. In particular, I thank...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 6 (25 Jan 2021)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...begin by agreeing with my noble friend Lady McIntosh of Pickering and the wide range of noble Lords from all corners of your Lordships’ House who have paid tribute to my right honourable friend Theresa May for bringing forward this landmark legislation, as my noble friend called it. I mentioned in my maiden speech in your Lordships’ House more than a year ago that I hoped this Bill...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Second Reading (20 Jan 2021)

Viscount Trenchard: ...Hilaire Belloc is quoted as saying in The Pacifist, published in 1938: “Pale Ebenezer thought it wrong to fight, But roaring Bill (who killed him) thought it right.” My right honourable friend Theresa May had recognised in 2016 that we should derogate from the ECHR in future conflicts and said that the Government would put an end to the industry of vexatious claims that had pursued...
