Stock Markets - Question (17 Nov 2022)

Baroness Penn: I think the noble Lord forgot to mention a global pandemic and Putin’s war in Ukraine. He also forgot to acknowledge the point that I have made throughout this Question that London continues to be either the highest or second highest-ranking financial centre in the world.

Peerages: Letters Patent - Question (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Morris of Aberavon: ..., the late noble and learned Lord Mayhew and I, as ex-Attorney-Generals, gave evidence to this House’s Constitution Committee that the Government could not rely on the royal prerogative to go to war as it was outdated, and the committee agreed. The committee chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Burns, did not make any suggestions on how to stop a Prime Minister proposing increases in...

G20 (17 Nov 2022)

Keir Starmer: .... What should have been a summit focused on global economic recovery and delivering clear commitments on climate change was sadly overshadowed by the unjustifiable actions of Russia and its illegal war in Ukraine. Civilian infrastructure was targeted across Ukraine and a war of aggression rumbled on as world leaders tried to reach agreement. Whatever the outcome of the investigation into...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Africa: Food Supply (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: UN Humanitarian assessments indicate that over 140 million people are critically food insecure due to conflict, climate disasters and the Covid pandemic, made worse by the war in Ukraine. The UK is a major humanitarian donor and we are pressing for an urgent collective response to current levels of acute food insecurity. This financial year we intend to provide approximately £156 million to...

Scottish Parliament: Forth Valley Hospital (17 Nov 2022)

Alexander Stewart: The First Minister will be aware of the difficulties that are being faced by Forth Valley hospital, with five consultants leaving in the space of two weeks and the facility being described as a “war zone” and a “toxic” environment. The health board says that any concerns raised by clinical or other staff groups are taken seriously and that there is no attempt to cover up, but the...

The Secretary of State was asked: Food Production (17 Nov 2022)

Maggie Throup: With a greater emphasis on food security as a consequence of Putin’s war in Ukraine, does my right hon. Friend agree that her Department’s response to the independent Dimbleby review, only to maintain broadly the current level of domestic food production, lacks ambition? Will she now bring forward a national food strategy that not only commits to increasing food production significantly...

Algeria: 60th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations (16 Nov 2022)

Alexander Stafford: my speech. It is important to recognise that we cannot understand Algeria or become its close partner without looking at its history and how it was formed as a country. Many Britons may be aware of Algeria only as a north African Arab nation with a recent French influence. That is undoubtedly true, but it boasts a heritage dating back thousands of years. In antiquity, it was the home of...

National Security Bill: New Clause 9 - Use of Reasonable Force (16 Nov 2022)

Ben Everitt: ..., and I am pleased that we are all still vaguely getting on. As the Minister said in his opening remarks, a number of clauses in the Bill update espionage legislation that goes back to world war one. Obviously we do not have time to go through all of them, but after putting the Bill into context, I will spend some time talking about clauses 13, 14, 20 and 21. The context is important. In...

Conflict in Ethiopia (16 Nov 2022)

Andrew Mitchell: ...Office. She asked whether people would be held to account for what they have done. I stress as strongly as I can that we will do everything that we can to ensure that there is no impunity for war crimes and those who have committed human rights abuses. The hon.—

Russia in Georgia - Question (16 Nov 2022)

Baroness Rawlings: ..., Lord Carlile. Do we still have troops or observers on the South Ossetia-Georgia border, which was very much being controlled by Russians on my last visit? I wonder how much has changed since the war with Ukraine.

Missile Incident in Poland (16 Nov 2022)

David Lammy: NATO is unshakeable. We also note, as the Foreign Secretary did, the NATO Secretary-General’s words earlier today. He said: “Russia bears ultimate responsibility as it continues its illegal war against Ukraine.” This incident highlights the sheer recklessness of Putin’s war and the ongoing need to guard against miscalculation and deter aggression. Yesterday saw one of the...

Migration (16 Nov 2022)

Robert Jenrick: ...doing everything we can. If we can make further legislative changes in the spirit of what he said—relating to individuals who come here not for safety from persecution, human rights abuses and war, which asylum was designed to support, but from safe countries looking for a better life—we will do so and secure the borders as a result.

Family Law Terminology (16 Nov 2022)

Siobhan Baillie: ...parents separate. It surprises many that the term “custody” should have stopped being used 30-odd years ago when the Children Act 1989 came in, but it surprises nobody that the language of war used for separating families is damaging to all involved, with approximately 40% of all separating parents bringing issues about their children to the family court. For too long we have allowed...

West Balkans: Council of Europe — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (16 Nov 2022)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: ...summit in its 73-year history. We support Iceland’s proposal to focus on the Council’s core values and strengthen them across Europe; against the backdrop of Putin’s heinous and unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine, it has never been more important to protect those values. The UK welcomes the Council’s swift action to expel Russia, and His Majesty’s Government and the UK...

Scottish Parliament: Ukraine Refugees (Housing) (16 Nov 2022)

Pauline McNeill: The minister will be aware that the MS Victoria, which is being used to house Ukrainian refugees in Leith, has more cabins without portholes than cabins with portholes. Can the minister tell me whether that is also the case with MS Ambition? The Government does not seem to have set a time limit for how long people will be there, other than the end of the contract—would that be the time...

Scottish Parliament: European Countries (Relationships) (16 Nov 2022)

Neil Gray: to build relationships and unlock new economic and trading opportunities, and it helps to protect our interests in Europe, in the light of Brexit and other recent events ranging from the illegal war in Ukraine to the climate emergency and the cost of living crisis. In May and June I visited Baden-Württemberg to promote the game-changing trade opportunities that are emerging in the...

Scotland: Devolved Finances (16 Nov 2022)

Alister Jack: ..., and there is an emergency figure, as was available during covid. The hon. Gentleman raises a point about inflation. Rising energy costs and rising food prices, as a result of Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine, have affected continental Europe and the United Kingdom. This is a global issue. The Bank of England is taking steps, and the Chancellor’s statement will take further steps...
