Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Defences for victims of domestic abuse who commit an offence (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: ...Act says about modern slavery. It may well be a typo, although, having said that, I cannot absolutely vouch for it not being one. However, as somebody who has had some success with my ability to write, I do find that the law is sometimes difficult to read. It could be a mistake or it could be completely right, but I am sure that we can come back to the hon. Lady and let her know. New...

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [Lords] (8 Jun 2020)

Duncan Baker: ...deeply. For those who have actually experienced a long, protracted and acrimonious divorce, it leaves an indelible mark on them and, in many cases, on their families and children forever. I want to speak today on this Bill because it resonates with me personally. I have wrestled, as many Members have, with the potentially difficult connotations that this law has specifically around the...

Scottish Parliament: Children (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 May 2020)

Bob Doris: I thank Mr Findlay for putting that situation on the record. I absolutely agree with him. I know that time is tight, Presiding Officer, but I want to get some more testimony on the record this afternoon. When Elle’s child was unwell, the sheriff would not accept general practitioner evidence that that was the case. The GP would have to take the stand for it to be accepted, but that was not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (26 May 2020)

Paul Frew: This is a funny sort of day. The Bill has already had accelerated passage, but we are now going from First Reading to Second Reading within an hour. That is accelerated even for accelerated passage, I think. These are surreal times. My tendency as a scrutiniser is always to put the brake on. Of course, I realise that, in order for me to put the brake on, it is for me to try to get my head...

Covid-19: Response - Statement (19 May 2020)

Lord Bethell: My Lords, I thank the noble Baronesses for their penetrating and searching questions. I will go through them systematically. First, I want to say a few words, partly in response to the appeal for transparency from the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, and partly in response to some of the suggestions about the performance of the Government in their response to Covid. I assure the House that the...

Motor Vehicles (Tests) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Consider (13 May 2020)

Lord Carrington of Fulham: ...in the register. We understand perfectly the reasons for these regulations. At this time, it is important that we remove as many burdens from people as possible and ensure that no one is forced into contact with others if it can be avoided. However, I wish to point out a couple of problems. I support the regulations but we will need to get MoT stations back to normal operation as soon as...

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [HL] - Committee (Continued): Amendment 7 (3 Mar 2020)

Lord Farmer: My Lords, this amendment would ensure that there are no discussions about financial settlement for 20 weeks unless both parties agree, or unless there is an application to the court for interim maintenance and financial injunctions. The 20-week period I refer to is dependent on the longer period argued for in Amendment 4, which was 46 weeks. If the minimum period is only 20 weeks before a...

Construction Industry: Cash Retentions — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (27 Feb 2020)

Peter Aldous: That is true, and reminds me of something else I am handling at the moment where Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs is put right at the top of the list. The right hon. Gentleman makes a good point. The hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun has explained the problem and I shall not go into much detail about it. Retentions are ostensibly held as security in case a firm fails to return to...

Environment Bill (26 Feb 2020)

Geraint Davies: Precisely. COP26 is an opportunity for the United Kingdom to show that we will act collectively, take leadership and bring the world together, but the example we are setting is one where we have 62,000 people dying prematurely from air pollution at a cost of £20 billion. Air pollution causes heart failure and lung disease, and possibly lower IQ in children. Unborn babies have PM2.5...

Industrial and Mining Towns - Question (13 Feb 2020)

Lord Vinson: My Lords, 90% of the economy goes by road. The A1, the main road from London to Edinburgh, is not even dualled. The A69 over the Pennines is a constant brake on the movement of transport. If we want to get the north of England moving, we must improve the road system as well as the rail system.

Retail Workers: Protection (11 Feb 2020)

Kit Malthouse: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Gary. I make no complaint that this subject has been brought up twice in three months. It is obviously extremely important and affects all our constituents in many ways. Frankly, I have experienced this issue myself. When I was a young man, as a relatively penniless student, I worked behind a bar in a pub for about six months. I...

Civil Aviation Authority: Aviation Safety — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (6 Feb 2020)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Civil Aviation Authority and aviation safety. It is, as ever, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I thank the Chairman of Ways and Means, to whom I am grateful for having been allowed this time, and the industry bodies, air traffic controllers throughout the highlands and islands and others who briefed me ahead of the debate....

House of Commons Commission: Compostable Waste from Parliament (6 Feb 2020)

Pete Wishart: It is a real pleasure to answer questions on behalf of the House of Commons Commission. This is the first time that a member of the Scottish National party has answered questions in the House. I pay tribute to my predecessor, Tom Brake, who answered questions diligently and conscientiously. I thank the hon. Lady for this first and very important question. To ensure that compostable food and...

High Speed 2 (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (23 Jan 2020)

Viscount Astor: ...internet connectivity, so the business case and the revenue projections are no longer valid. Then there were the shortened journey times, but we know that those are marginal, as HS2 does not go to city centres. Passengers will be required to change to local trains or buses. London to Birmingham trains will go to the less convenient Curzon Street station. As for capacity, if one looks at...

Economy and Jobs (20 Jan 2020)

Sajid Javid: Absolutely. May I take this opportunity to commend my right hon. Friend for all the work he has done on all three of those issues. He is absolutely right in what he says. Our work has started with this Queen’s Speech, the most radical Queen’s Speech in a generation. It will enshrine in law the largest cash settlement in the NHS’s history and invest more in our schools; it will...

Health and Social Care (16 Jan 2020)

Elliot Colburn: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is a pleasure to make my maiden speech as the new Member of Parliament for Carshalton and Wallington. First, I wish to thank the people in my constituency who sent me to this, the mother of all Parliaments. I also thank all hon. Members who have made their maiden speeches today and throughout the week. They have set the bar incredibly high, but I will do my...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Parliamentary sovereignty (8 Jan 2020)

Geraint Davies: Well, that was very helpful. Some hon. Members have failed to understand this. I remember the big debate over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, for example, and over these investor-state dispute settlement clauses being used by the Americans on fracking and other issues. Once we are in a situation where, instead of being in the powerful trading bloc of the EU, negotiating...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

John Redwood: .... Lady knows full well that there is a formula and consequentials from the English settlement. I am quite sure that my right hon. Friends in the Government will look after Wales, and it is her job to test them out in the appropriate debates. This speech is not the appropriate moment, because I am not here to speak for Wales; I am here to speak for Wokingham and West Berkshire, and I am...

Scottish Parliament: Road Safety Week 2019 (19 Nov 2019)

Linda Fabiani: ...of Stuart McMillan, on road safety week 2019. The debate will be concluded without any question being put. Motion debated, That the Parliament welcomes Road Safety Week 2019, which runs from 18 to 24 November 2019, with this year’s theme being “Step up for Safe Streets”; notes that this is an annual event to raise awareness about road safety, which was started in 1997 by Brake, a...

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Harry Dunn (5 Nov 2019)

Tom Brake: I start by congratulating you, Mr Speaker, on your election. I know that you will want to defend the rights of this House against any rogue Executive. I extend my deepest sympathies to Harry Dunn’s family. Are the Government exploring routes to extradite the driver? Do they think they are likely to be successful, given that President Trump’s notes, which were caught on camera, appear to...
