Public Accounts Commission: Child Maintenance Service (16 Nov 2017)

Angela Crawley: ...for their child. However, the Department sent her a letter meant for her ex-partner, which caused her great concern, as she was worried that he would get mail meant for her and find out her new location. It is unacceptable that a simple administrative error could strike such fear and alarm into an individual and that any Department, no matter how easily administrative errors might occur,...

Scottish Parliament: Prejudice-based Bullying and Harassment in Schools, and Personal and Social Education (15 Nov 2017)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: school. All of that was reinforced by evidence that we took from organisations such as Rape Crisis Scotland, Children in Scotland, the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights and LGBT Youth Scotland, and it should sound an alarm bell for us all. Protecting the human rights of our children is central to their development. We should adopt a rights-based approach in all aspects of our...

International Men’s Day — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (14 Nov 2017)

David Linden: ...suicide, and I want to offer a few thoughts from a Scottish context. In 2016, 728 suicides were registered in Scotland, compared with 672 in 2015. That is the first increase in deaths by suicide for six years, which is absolutely shocking and should cause real alarm to those of us who are Scottish politicians and, indeed, to the Scottish Government. When it comes to general health and...

Chris Stephens: ...register, alongside an 89% drop in those coming to work in the UK from Europe. Does the Minister agree with the chief executive of the Royal College of Nursing that “These dramatic figures should set alarm bells ringing in Whitehall and every UK health department”?

Family Planning Clinics: Public Order Legislation (7 Nov 2017)

Nick Hurd: being made of existing powers, the Government will explore whether any further action is needed to ensure that clinic staff and patients can go about their lawful business free from harassment, offence or alarm. I will go on to talk about existing powers; I was interested in what the hon. Member for Ealing Central and Acton said of her doubts about whether they are fit for purpose. The...

Wales and Borders Franchise (7 Nov 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: ...opposed things. In fact, the UK Government, in the form of the DFT, and another bit of the UK Government, the Wales Office, were saying and doing diametrically opposed things. The Transport Secretary’s response set alarm bells ringing in Cardiff. As a result, later that day, Plaid Cymru forced an urgent question in the National Assembly. On 6 December, the very same day, the Welsh...

Community Policing — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (7 Nov 2017)

Louise Haigh: ...we did. Two of those—Lithuania and Iceland—were reeling from chaotic and deep depressions. It was a political choice to preside over the erosion of neighbourhood policing, and when the police raised the alarm, it was a political choice to attack them for crying wolf, rather than listening to their legitimate concerns. Only last week, we saw the Home Secretary castigating...

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...of all parties involved in this issue and will explore whether any further action is needed to ensure clinic staff and patients can go about their lawful business free from harassment, offence or alarm.

Scottish Parliament: Respect for Shopworkers Week (7 Nov 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: I recognise the work that Daniel Johnson is doing on the issue. Does Jackie Baillie recognise that some shopworkers face additional fear and alarm because of the late nights that they have to work, often without public transport to get them home and often taking buses and other forms of transport on which they may be faced with people who are drunk or out of order? That is a focus of the...

Public Bill Committee: Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Liability of insurers etc where accident caused by automated vehicle (2 Nov 2017)

Clive Efford: ...vehicles on the roads about which people ask us, “Why did you allow this to happen?” We heard conflicting comments from witnesses. Mr Wong told us that in an Audi, after a minimum of 10 seconds alarm bells would go off and, if the driver did not respond, the vehicle would eventually bring itself to a halt. That was a description of tier 3. Mr Gooding told us that we should not...

Agriculture, Fisheries and the Rural Environment - Motion to Take Note (2 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...waste, without damaging the quality of our soil, water and biodiversity for the future. The reduction of bees, linked to concerns about pesticides, and the recent report that insects have reduced by three-quarters in the last 25 years, need to ring alarm bells. Insects and bees are crucial pollinators as well as helping to control pests and sustain our ecosystem. At the same time, we need...

Public Bill Committee: Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Liability of insurers etc where accident caused by automated vehicle (2 Nov 2017)

Clive Efford: ...belt just before the vehicle came to a halt, in case the driver had passed out or was so fast asleep that the alarms did not wake them up. There are various scenarios involving the transition that cause alarm. Mr Gooding of the RAC Foundation felt that we should not even entertain tier 3 because it is unsafe and does not make any sense, and because the legislation is about moving straight...

Puppy Smuggling (1 Nov 2017)

George Eustice: this country. We need to ensure greater public awareness of these things. If a person is told that someone wants to meet them at a motorway service station to sell them a puppy, that should set alarm bells ringing that something is not right. Everyone has a role to play in solving this problem, but in the time I have, I shall restrict my comments to what the Government are trying to do...

Scottish Parliament: Health (1 Nov 2017)

Railways: Reliability - Question for Short Debate (31 Oct 2017)

Lord Patten: I hope I will not alarm the noble Baroness too much if I say that I agree very much with what she said. I also rise with some temerity to speak before the noble Lord, Lord Snape, who knows so much more about railways that I ever will. I well remember as a very green new Member meeting him on my first night in another place in the Strangers’ Bar, when he asked me what I did. I...

Public Bill Committee: Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Examination of Witnesses (31 Oct 2017)

...involve effectively putting wiring in new homes in such a way as to ensure that a charge point could easily be added. We have repeatedly asked about this but been told that even putting a smoke alarm in some houses is too much for some developers. Any additional input in that area would be very welcome.

Sierra Leone: Ebola - Question for Short Debate (30 Oct 2017)

Baroness Sheehan: ...responses to the Ebola outbreak exposed shortcomings in the World Health Organization’s dealings with the crisis, a point made by the noble Viscount, Lord Ridley, specifically in delays to sounding the alarm and declaring a public health emergency of international concern. This was despite the early warnings from Médecins Sans Frontières. The report specifically recommended...

Air and Water Pollution: Impact - Motion to Take Note (26 Oct 2017)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: .... My noble friend Lord Whitty and other noble Lords highlighted the particular harm that occurs to the most disadvantaged and disabled people in our society. The more evidence is made available, the more alarm bells ring. We are only now beginning to understand the full consequences of the public health crisis. But it seems that the only place where alarm bells are not ringing is in...
