Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Naseby: .... A couple of months ago, in November, it found that there were hundreds of British shell companies implicated in nearly £80 billion-worth of money laundering. That in itself should set off alarm bells in my judgment. Additionally, this lack of checks harms Britain’s reputation as a leading place to do business and must be addressed in the run-up to Brexit. It is essential to...

County Lines Exploitation: London — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (17 Jan 2018)

Louise Haigh: ...struggling to keep up. They have suffered horrific cuts over the last seven years, which have devastated local intelligence collection. Now, in unprecedented fashion, senior officers are sounding the alarm across the UK. Unfortunately, serious and organised crime and violent crime are only one part of the picture of the demand that our police forces face, as 999 and 101 calls are up by as...

Dominic Raab: Latest findings from the English Housing Survey show that the proportion of households without a functioning smoke alarm in England was 12 per cent in 2013-14 and 2014-15. The proportion decreased to 11 per cent in 2015-16. These statistics will be updated with findings from 2016-17 in early 2018.

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Steve Brine: ...time. As ever, they are doing a brilliant job. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House expresses concern at the effect on patient care of the closure of 14,000 hospital beds since 2010; records its alarm at there being vacancies for 100,000 posts across the NHS; regrets the decision of the Government to reduce social care funding since 2010; notes that hospital trusts have...

Scottish Parliament: Article 50 Withdrawal Process (9 Jan 2018)

Richard Lochhead: ...astounding. On the one hand, we have Philip Hammond, the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, putting aside £3 billion in last November’s budget to prepare for a no-deal scenario; on the other hand, we have a letter of alarm going from David Davis to the Prime Minister in the past couple of weeks—a letter in which he expresses alarm that the EU is planning for a no-deal...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Richard Graham: My right hon. Friend is being very generous. It would help us all if he could confirm that this is really an enabling Bill, and that it therefore should not alarm either those who wish to see the continuity of existing trading arrangements, or those who want significant differences. It paves the way for either scenario, depending on the negotiations in Europe.

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Michael Ellis: Poland at the moment. May I assure the House—and you, Mr Speaker—that I am not the only one left, as you can see from the Front Bench? I think the stock markets may still be open, so I do not want to alarm them. I am not in charge.

International Human Rights Day — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Ann Clwyd: ...issues were raised in a recent report from the Foreign Affairs Committee, of which I am a member. Its summary says: “This crisis was sadly predictable, and predicted, but the FCO warning system did not raise enough alarm. There was too much focus by the UK and others in recent years on supporting the ‘democratic transition’ and not enough on atrocity prevention and...

Social Mobility (Wales) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (19 Dec 2017)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: ...fact remains that many of those in top public and private sector jobs around our country have attended Oxford, Cambridge or other universities in the Russell Group. A lot of recent statistics should alarm us. My right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) has produced a report showing a geographical domination of all those elite university places by students from the south-east...

Brexit: Trade in Non-financial Services (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Whitty: ...access or failure to secure a free trade agreement at all would risk significant changes to the sectors, which would face increased regulatory complexity and some businesses would need to restructure or relocate their operations. The Government also need to recognise the alarm raised by many of these businesses at the abandonment of the free movement of people. A relatively high number of...

Enslavement of Black Africans (Libya) — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Dec 2017)

Alistair Burt: ...treating someone else as not human, there is virtually nothing that they will feel unable to do. That has been the scourge of the region and other parts of the world for too long. The Government share the deep concern and alarm expressed about modern slavery, the formation of the conditions that have produced the migration, and what migrants face in Libya today. As the hon. Member for...

Written Answers — Home Office: Fireworks: Antisocial Behaviour (18 Dec 2017)

Victoria Atkins: ...police and local authorities with a range of powers to tackle anti-social and nuisance behaviour. Provided that the relevant legal tests are met, these powers can be used to tackle those who cause alarm or distress to others through their misuse of fireworks. These powers are in addition to regulations in place covering the supply, storage, possession and use of fireworks which includes...

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Philip Dunne: ...of conspiracy—trying to paint the issue as some kind of dastardly plot to privatise the health service, for which there is not a shred of evidence—is scaremongering that will undoubtedly alarm residents in her area. That rather undermined the force of her quite proper concern for her constituents, so I am sorry that she chose to characterise her position in that way. I welcome,...

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Dec 2017)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...permanent, leaving people exposed to radicalisation and storing up problems for the future. As the Committee noted, this crisis was sadly predictable—indeed, the Foreign Office did predict it. But the Foreign Office’s own warning system did not raise enough alarm; in recent years, there was too much focus from the United Kingdom and others on supporting the democratic...

Written Answers — Home Office: Lead: Theft (14 Dec 2017)

James Cartlidge: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps her Department is making to encourage churches to install alarm equipment to deter lead theft; and if she will make a statement.

Scottish Parliament: Health Funding (14 Dec 2017)

Elaine Smith: ...elderly deaf and blind woman, who has a stoma bag, was discharged from hospital with insufficient care, only one daily district nurse visit, and at times no assistance available via the home care alarm. On several occasions, she therefore suffered the indignity, distress and discomfort of a burst stoma bag, and her family believes that her life is at risk. If that is happening to one...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

David Linden: ...Select Committee, only for it to be ignored by the Government, as happened in late 2014 during the last inquiry. The evidence and testimony that the Committee has already received should be sounding the alarm bells at Caxton House, and that is before the Committee has even published its report. I very much welcome the Minister to her new role. As she knows, I enjoyed a constructive working...

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: ...example, only to be told that they do not qualify for the surgery. Not only that, but one month from the end of the programme, patients are asked if they still wish to be referred. That is where louder alarm bells started to ring for me. It is absolutely clear that the decision on whether to operate, or whether the patient needs surgery, must be made by the relevant surgeon and not by...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Funding — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Jess Phillips: ...had fallen in? My very first question was, “Where is your on-call manager for this service?” Why was there no one there? I have been an on-call manager and I have spent my nights putting on boots over my pyjamas and going to deal with a problem in a refuge: a baby being born or the fire alarm constantly going off. The bare minimum is that someone should be no more than a phone...

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Andrew Slaughter: ..., and that there were no working urinals in parts of the prison. People are living in medieval conditions. As for the education services, attendance at classes in June was 24%, and the library was closed for several weeks because Carillion could not fix the alarm. The Koestler Trust, which does fantastic work in prisoner art, is based in the old governor’s house outside the prison,...
