Nuclear Test Veterans: Medals - Statement (24 Nov 2022)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...Lord said, the UK undertook its first nuclear test 70 years ago and, in so doing, confirmed our country’s status as the world’s third nuclear power, which has helped to keep peace since World War II. Critical to the success were those who took part in our national testing programme. There is a direct line between their service all those years ago and the safety and security of our...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...agencies to do this work. Some members may have heard that I once was in the Army. The way the armed forces does such things is by having two different forms of budget—the ongoing budget and the war reserve. I am much more inclined, and much more persuadable, towards the argument that we should be making sure that the agencies that take on such claims have a war reserve to ensure that...

Gulf States: Human Rights Abuses - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Cashman: .... Here I bring my points back home. The mirror that we hold up to ourselves in this country has, until recently, been a positive reflection. Sadly, that mirror has become distressed by culture wars, in which one minority is pitted against another; in which one group is portrayed as deserving while others are defamed, ridiculed and shamefully misrepresented. Culture wars in the United...

COP 27: Commitments - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...If we are to make an effective contribution—more than just feeling we have done our bit with net zero—we will have to mobilise our technology and resources on a scale not contemplated since the wars of the past. Even they were on a smaller scale because we were talking about a far smaller world population and a far smaller problem in the world. We are now being called on to face up to...

Scottish Referendum Legislation: Supreme Court Judgement - Commons Urgent Question (24 Nov 2022)

...and we want to work together with the Scottish Government on vital areas such as tackling the cost of living, growing our economy and leading the international response to Russia’s illegal war in Ukraine.

Ukraine: Post-conflict Reconstruction - Question (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for his remarks. Of course, he is right. We have seen real unity of purpose and action from the United Kingdom on Russia’s illegal war in Ukraine. I agree with him that the economic recovery issue is immense. It is worsened by the fact that, after a degree of respite a couple of months ago, Russia’s subsequent carpet bombing of Ukrainian cities set back...

Transport: Spending Priorities: Autumn Statement (24 Nov 2022)

Mark Harper: ..., and the Government’s No. 1 economic priority is to reduce inflation as quickly as possible. Inflation is a global phenomenon, driven by the recovery from the covid pandemic and Russia’s war in Ukraine, but it is important that we deal with it. The hon. Gentleman will know that I represent a constituency quite some distance from London. I am well aware that we need to spread transport...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Armed Forces: Vehicles (24 Nov 2022)

Leo Docherty: ...does not speculate on specific future sanctions, as to do so could reduce their impact. We will continue the pressure against Putin and his regime, until Ukraine prevails or Putin ends his war of choice.

Scottish Parliament: Renewable Energy Sector (Economic Impact) (24 Nov 2022)

Richard Lochhead: ..., supporting jobs here in Scotland. As Paul McLennan said in his opening speech, the sector is already supporting jobs in his East Lothian constituency and the wider region. That all contributes towards the decarbonisation ambitions of our partners, internationally and across these islands. The scale and pace of change are unprecedented, which offers exciting opportunities to develop green...

Scottish Parliament: Decarbonisation of Heavy Goods Vehicles (Delivery Firms) (24 Nov 2022)

Jenny Gilruth: ...Brexit and of other damaging United Kingdom Government policies hit the road haulage industry hard at a time when it was also contending with a global pandemic, and we now have the impacts of the war in Ukraine, including higher fuel costs. Without the resilience that the industry has shown in that regard, the shortages that we have experienced on supermarket shelves and elsewhere would...

Scottish Parliament: National Drugs Mission (24 Nov 2022)

Collette Stevenson: ...treating you with contempt or your own thoughts telling you that you are worthless, stigma against people with problematic drug use can be crippling. I would argue that the UK Government’s failed war on drugs has exacerbated that stigma. Instead of criminalising large swathes of the population, we need a public health approach that supports those with addictions and prevents unnecessary...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (23 Nov 2022)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...its antecedents in my origins, as is the case with thousands of people who live on this side of the Irish Sea. My father was one of five brothers who served in the Armed Forces in the Second World War. One was in the Royal Air Force and was killed. My grandfather served in the First World War, but my mother was from a Gaeltacht, an Irish-speaking area, in the west of Ireland. Irish was her...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (23 Nov 2022)

Lord McInnes of Kilwinning: ...to try his very best to improve the Bill. James Hughes wrote a chapter entitled “Reconstruction Without Reconciliation: Is Northern Ireland a ‘Model’?” in the 2015 academic book After Civil War. While we may have a model reconstruction and end of violence, I am afraid that on reconciliation we are on less sure territory. After almost 25 years of trying to grapple with this issue,...
