Community Alarm Services: Social Housing — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair]

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Relief for schools and hospitals (21 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: ...for at least half the schools in the country, which will see significant losses. Organisations within the schools sector, such as the National Association of Head Teachers—not the sort of body to sound the alarm unnecessarily—are also profoundly worried about the funding situation facing schools. It is in that spirit that the Opposition tabled new clause 4. I look forward to...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Israeli Settlements (21 Feb 2017)

Stephen Crabb: Alongside concerns about the rearmament of Hamas and the rebuilding of its network of cross-border terror tunnels, does my right hon. Friend share the growing alarm at the new activities of Daesh in the Sinai desert, which, together with the activities of Hamas, point to the prospect of further violence in the region and a new wave of terror attacks on innocent Israeli citizens?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (20 Feb 2017)

John Cryer: Leytonstone jobcentre, in my constituency, is threatened with closure, which has spread alarm and despondency among some of the most vulnerable people whom I represent. The nearest jobcentre, in Walthamstow, is more than 3 miles away, which breaks the Minister’s own guidelines. Will he undertake a proper impact assessment and publish the results?

Smart Metering: Electricity and Gas — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (9 Feb 2017)

Nick Hurd: .... It is absolutely right and a central part of a functional democracy that Select Committees and Opposition parties probe, prod, ask tough questions and even, in our view, tip over the line into spreading alarm. That is how we operate, and it is entirely right, particularly when we are faced with a project on this scale, not least as the past is littered with good intention and bad...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill [Lords]: Pause orders (9 Feb 2017)

Ian Blackford: ...sure that in those circumstances the assets of the plan holders are protected. I want to tease out with him that scenario where we believe that the funds are protected. On the basis of the fear and alarm that could be spread when people see that their pensions are not being paid, I have a predilection for making sure that both payments into funds, whether it is a new fund that is created...

Scottish Parliament: Drug-driving (9 Feb 2017)

Christine Grahame: In relation to legislation on driving offences, under the Antisocial Behaviour etc (Scotland) Act 2004, the police have authority to issue a written warning for driving that they consider causes alarm, distress or annoyance. If there is a repeat of that offence within 12 months, they have authority to confiscate the vehicle, but there is no appeal procedure in relation to the written warning....

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Lebanon: Palestinians (8 Feb 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...UNRWA's commitment to the welfare and development of Palestinian refugees, and the impact of violence on the safety of UNRWA staff members and their ability to deliver UNRWA services continues to alarm us. Although it is not the UK's position to routinely raise specific camp security incidents with the Government of Lebanon, Palestinian refugee issues are monitored closely and raised in...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of non-domestic rates (7 Feb 2017)

Rob Marris: ...calculations following local government finance report” are substituted by “determination of payments for a relevant year”. I hope the Minister can reassure me, because that change rings a certain alarm bell. It removes the word “calculations”, which implies to me the use of evidence—a formula and so on—and substitutes the word...

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Kate Green: I note with alarm that the White Paper says the Secretary of State plans to review the size standards, as we know from University of Cambridge research in 2014 that house sizes in this country are among the smallest in Europe. We do not want to move to building lots of rabbit coops that are not good for young families, so will he offer the House assurances that he will proceed with great...

Serious Fraud Office — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (7 Feb 2017)

Kirsten Oswald: fighting fraud and corruption—adding clout, as he would have it. The UK Government have indicated that they seek to move towards more of a tax haven economic model, which rings serious alarm bells for combating fraud. The right hon. and learned Member for Harborough spoke about reputation, which is key here. The SNP calls on the UK Government to respond to the findings in the...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Feb 2017)

...of the information is in the public interest,” 170: Clause 59, page 59, line 16, leave out from “behaviour”” to end of line 18 and insert “means conduct that—(a) is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person, or(b) is capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to a person in relation to that person’s occupation of residential...

Informal European Council: Parliamentary oversight of negotiations (6 Feb 2017)

Stewart Hosie: ...-edge Brexit—and we prepare for it. That makes sense. In addition to those assessments, we had today’s report that senior executives from the FTSE 500 companies are telling us that the Brexit vote is already having a negative impact on their businesses. That should have alarm bells ringing throughout the Government, but instead there is simply complacency. We have also seen the...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (6 Feb 2017)

Baroness Byford: ...than reporting persons and their behaviour to the police? I do not quite see what responsibility the gas or electricity suppliers have with this part of the Bill in that context. I also confess considerable alarm at the prospect of power suppliers having access to very personal and private information to enable them, as I understand it, to investigate, detect, prevent or prosecute anything...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (2 Feb 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...of the equipment, which was at risk, to ensure that they stepped in ahead of the possibility of moral outrage by creating a situation in which they said and alleged that people would not be shocked by the sorts of thing that might cause alarm and despondency around the country. At that stage they could not have anticipated that Life of Brian is still banned in Glasgow—I think that I...

Backbench Business: Alcohol Harm — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (2 Feb 2017)

Patricia Gibson: .... Members for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) and for Luton North (Kelvin Hopkins), in Scotland we have already reduced the drink-driving limit to 50 mg per 100 ml of blood. That means that the rest of the UK—this is a cause for great alarm—has the highest limit in the EU, alongside Malta. I urge the Minister to follow the lead of Scotland and the rest of our EU partners. Reducing the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: ...get permission from Surrey residents for a council tax rise, what that extra £60 million forgone will mean. He says he will have to take an axe to services unless people vote for the 15% rise. Mr Hodge is not the sort to raise the alarm unnecessarily. He has seen active service, having been in the Army for a long time. One respects his contribution, both before he became leader of...
