Wales: Cost of Living: Support for Households (23 Nov 2022)

David Davies: ...have had to deal with the after-effects of a financial collapse partly caused by the previous Labour Government, the effects of a covid crisis that has cost £400 billion, and the effect of a land war in Europe. Despite all that, this Government have quite rightly prioritised the least well off in our society, and I am very proud of our economic record.

Service Personnel and Veterans: Rehabilitation (22 Nov 2022)

Carla Lockhart: I thank the hon. Member for bringing forward this important issue. We have had a number of conflicts since the Falklands in 1982, including the Gulf war, Iraq and Afghanistan, and of course 30 years of troubles and violence in Northern Ireland. Our service personnel served with distinction, with many paying the ultimate sacrifice and others being left with mental and physical scars. Does she...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Gullis: ...point. I know that the shadow Minister, the right hon. Member for Wolverhampton South East (Mr McFadden), is a good man who likes to answer questions, and always with a straight bat. So I look forward to hearing him guarantee that, under a Labour Government, no taxes will go up on anyone in, for example, the 20p income tax bracket. If he can give such an assurance, I will probably have to...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Sunset of EU-derived subordinate legislation and retained direct EU legislation (22 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: ...taking a process of decades—by implication, that is 20 years at least—and squeezing it into a single year, and especially a single year when the Government are dealing with the impacts of the war in Ukraine, the after-effects of covid and the worst cost of living crisis in living memory, is not a responsible way for the Government to make legislation. I will be opposing clause 1. If...

Nuclear Test Veterans: Medals (22 Nov 2022)

Johnny Mercer: ...what we ask people to do has improved, and the security that they generated for our country has come more sharply into focus. That has certainly had a role to play. When it comes to compensation, war pensions are available, and indeed, nuclear test veterans claim them from the Ministry of Defence. When I was at the MOD in 2019, we created a clearer care pathway for individuals to come...

Asylum Seekers Contingency Accommodation: Belfast (22 Nov 2022)

Robert Jenrick: ...particular, are putting immense pressure on our system in all parts of the UK and making it difficult, and in some cases impossible, for us to treat people who are genuinely fleeing persecution, war and human rights abuses in the manner that we would all wish to do as a big-hearted and welcoming country. The hon. Lady is correct to say that the number of individuals waiting for their...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Sunset of EU-derived subordinate legislation and retained direct EU legislation (22 Nov 2022)

Stella Creasy: .... There must be a conspiracy at stake here. The true width of what is happening must be something that could rival “Designated Survivor”. The alternative—that the Government have put forward a Bill with a timetable and pace that mean they literally do not know what will happen next—is frankly disrespectful to our constituents. This amendment is about the confidence that the...

Public Bill Committee: UK Infrastructure Bank Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Objectives and activities (22 Nov 2022)

Abena Oppong-Asare: ...Kingdom’s industrial strategy”. That seems reasonable. The Office for Budget Responsibility has said that the bank will have no effect on growth. With assets of 0.1% of GDP a year, the bank is dwarfed by its French and German counterparts, and the £12 billion of funding allocated over five years falls short of the £20 billion recommended by the National Infrastructure Commission....

Written Answers — Treasury: Pay: Inflation (22 Nov 2022)

Baroness Penn: Nominal total pay growth is strong, 6.0% (including bonuses) in the Q3 of this year. Rising global energy prices exacerbated by Putin’s war, combined with supply chain disruptions stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic, has driven price inflation up in the UK and across Europe. Adjusting for CPI inflation, real wages fell by 3.7% in Q3. We will continue to monitor indicators of wage growth and...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: FCDO Update (22 Nov 2022)

James Cleverly: ...FCDO ODA budget for next year, 2023-24, to aid financial and operational planning, though this remains indicative. This is in the context of the support we are providing to those fleeing the war in Ukraine and insecurity in Afghanistan. We will need to decide on the distribution of planned ODA allocations over the remainder of the Spending Review. I want to update the House on how we will...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (22 Nov 2022)

Jenni Minto: ...: boom and bust, innovation and adaption, and how the involvement of the whole community is integral to fishing’s success. With the economic pressures of Brexit, Covid, the cost of living and the war in Ukraine, alongside the twin impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss, the attributes of innovation and adaption are needed now more than ever. The Scottish Government’s strategy...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Gavin Newlands: ...the Government’s own Office for Budget Responsibility’s forecast of a 7.1% drop in household living standards over the coming two years, which will be the biggest fall since the second world war. Real wages will fall as inflation hits hard and, as spending in the economy slumps early next year, the effect on retail and other sectors is likely to be devastating. The coming years could...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill - Second Reading (21 Nov 2022)

Lord Carrington: ...declare my interests as a farmer and landowner as set out in the register. I too welcome the noble Lord, Lord Roborough, and congratulate him on his excellent and amusing maiden speech, and look forward to many such contributions in future. The development of new cultivars through rapid and precision breeding is a necessity, both in order to reduce crop management burdens such as disease...

Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 15) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve (21 Nov 2022)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...on these sanctions. We will do whatever we can to support their speedy reduction. If there is one message from this House, it is that this country is absolutely united against Putin’s illegal war and, in particular, as we have seen, the recent indiscriminate attacks on civilian infrastructure, designed to do one thing, which is to damage the homes and the heating of families and...

Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland: Energy Supply Shortfalls - Question (21 Nov 2022)

Lord Callanan: I do not agree with the noble Lord: it is not a failure of policy. The whole world has been hit by a massive supply shock due to Putin’s war in Ukraine. If the noble Lord were correct and it was a failure of this Government’s policy, why is there a failure in France, Germany and the Netherlands? These countries are on the continent as well and are also suffering from a lack of gas...
