Marine Renewables: Government Support — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (7 Dec 2022)

Alistair Carmichael: I offer myself as an interlocutor for the hon. Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham). His entreaty to the Minister was that we should not forget England. Between now and Saturday that would take some doing. Those who know me will understand that the message of this debate is simple. I will not expand on the reasons why I keep messages simple, but let me reiterate them for the Minister. We...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: Air Pollution (7 Dec 2022)

Jesse Norman: The Government aims to position the UK as the best place in the world to develop, manufacture and use zero exhaust emissions vehicles and ensure that the cleanest conventional vehicles are driven on our roads. Innovation and a strong R&D ecosystem is key to this. Government is delivering: Innovate UK grants in emerging technologies which reduce non-exhaust emissions such as new tyre and...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 10 - Scope of powers (24 Nov 2022)

Brendan O'Hara: I beg to move amendment 51, in clause 10, page 11, line 18, leave out from “paragraph 3” to the end of line 23 and insert “may not be so made, confirmed or approved unless a draft of the legislation has been laid before, and approved by resolution of, (as the case may be) both Houses of Parliament, the Scottish Parliament, Senedd Cymru or the Northern Ireland Assembly.” The amendment...

Long Covid - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Bethell: My Lords, I start by thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, for bringing about this important debate. She has held the Government’s feet to the fire—in fact, she held my feet to the fire—on this issue, and I absolutely commend her persistence. Rehabilitation in general and post-viral syndromes in particular have a long history of being horribly overlooked in this country. I am...

Scottish Parliament: National Performance Framework (Proposed Changes) (17 Nov 2022)

Michelle Thomson: I thank the minister for his response. I am sure that, like me, he welcomes the open letter to the First Minister from 115 charities, businesses and others, which contains suggestions to further our commitment to creating a wellbeing economy. However, the fact that various powers such as employment law are reserved to Westminster has been described by Patricia Findlay from the Fair Work...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 88 - Analysis of information for the purposes of crime prevention or detection (8 Nov 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Yes. The law is being broken but nobody is pursuing those who are guilty. These are all reasons for closely monitoring data on persons of significant control. The measure would simply put a duty on Companies House to be proactive and to check the status of the person named on a risk-based basis, not just via their personal details. New clause 38 deals with dissolution, which has been raised...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2022)

Tom Sharpe: I see the Bill as a framework Bill. Of course, it gives Ministers and Departments very considerable powers—powers of proposal, as you know, to amend, revoke or replace existing legislation. As Martin has just said, an Act of Parliament, which was probably passed—if I may say so respectfully—before many of you were born, provided an enabling power to enact legislation of...

Financial Markets: Stability - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2022)

Lord Sharkey: significantly more complex. There are at least two readings of the phrase “financial stability”. The first reading, in this context, is defined by the Bank of England, which has a statutory objective to protect and enhance the stability of the financial system in the United Kingdom. The definition is that “financial stability is the consistent supply of the vital services that the...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (25 Oct 2022)

Margaret Hodge: ...recognise the contribution that Bill Browder and Oliver have made in this space—it is brilliant. You talked about civil cases but say, fingers crossed, we get a criminal offence for failure to prevent, what would you do in those cases to ensure that costs do not act as a brake on the enforcement agencies taking action?

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (25 Oct 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Q The other brake on pursuing the bad people is the fear of failure, and therefore the burden of costs on the public purse. Would you like to see the cost capping that has been introduced on unexplained wealth orders extended here, or do you have other ideas about how we can try to make that brake less solid?

Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 4 (18 Oct 2022)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I very much welcome the Government’s response to our debate in Committee in tabling government Amendment 4, which is a very welcome step forward. It honours the undertaking my noble friend gave in Committee to “talk to the Minister personally, whoever that may be, to reflect the views of the Committee on this important issue.”—[ Official Report, 6/9/22; col. 139.] That...

Financial Investment and Deforestation (17 Oct 2022)

Chris Grayling: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require banks and investment institutions regulated in the UK to verify and certify that they do not provide any form of financial or investment support to businesses which derive income from forest risk commodities, or that relevant local laws were complied with in relation to such commodities; and for connected purposes. Deforestation...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Hear, hear! I completely concur with the hon. Gentleman, and it is a real pleasure to work with him on all these matters. He is completely right. The interesting thing about Danske Bank is that, were there to be any prosecutions, they would not happen in the UK. They might happen in other jurisdictions, particularly America, but they will never happen in the UK because of the weakness of our...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (10 Oct 2022)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...speech of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Birmingham. His insightful and compassionate contributions were always an important part of our debates, and I fear we are at a point in our history where we need more compassion and discussion. This has been a fascinating and wide-ranging debate. I suspected that my going through the individual contributions of 55 Back-Bench speakers...

Scottish Parliament: Air Quality (4 Oct 2022)

Colin Smyth: Although electric vehicles contribute to air pollution by producing brake and tyre dust, which means that we need fewer cars and not only cleaner ones, EVs do not emit nitrogen dioxide and so are part of the solution in improving air quality. The Climate Change Committee estimates that we will need at least 30,000 public EV charging points in Scotland by 2030, but the Government’s target is...

Energy Prices: Support for Business (22 Sep 2022)

Caroline Lucas: The Secretary of State’s announcements may have finally put a temporary brake on further terrifying price hikes, but they leave huge questions unanswered, including: what is the Government’s exit strategy? We need a proper solution to get us out of this crisis, by reducing our dependence on gas and upgrading buildings for the long term. Just yesterday, more than 100 top businesses wrote...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Air Pollution: Urban Areas (25 Jul 2022)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: The development of regulations to limit emissions from tyre and brake wear depends on the development of an internationally recognised test procedure for measuring them. This issue is being examined by the UN ECE Particle Measurement Programme (PMP), which includes DfT officials, other international governments, and the automotive industry. DfT is one of the founders of PMP and has played a...

Australia Free Trade Agreement - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2022)

Lord Oates: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the UK hydrogen commission. It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and, as a member of the International Agreements Committee, I pay particular tribute to our chair, the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, and to our committee clerk Jennifer Martin-Kohlmorgen and her team for producing such an informative report. I regret that the noble Lord, Lord...

Action on Climate Change and Decarbonisation (5 Jul 2022)

Richard Fuller: I do not want to deflect my right hon. Friend too far from the debate, but let me just pin this down. The automobile added to growth because it got people from A to B quicker than a horse and cart. The move to net zero essentially means taking certain off-balance sheet, off-profit and loss statement costs and putting them on the balance sheet or on the P&L. It will therefore act as a brake on...

Public Bill Committee: Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill: Clause 1 - Precision Bred Organism (5 Jul 2022)

Daniel Zeichner: I thank the Minister for her constructive tone. I suspect that the arguments we will pursue over the next few days are already becoming clear. There is considerable agreement. No one disputes that it would be wonderful to be able to tackle bird flu or PRRS. Of course, if we can find a solution, it would be hugely beneficial not just in a financial sense but in terms of welfare as well. The...
