Benefit Claimants Sanctions (Required Assessment) Bill (2 Dec 2016)

Hannah Bardell: I thank my hon. Friend for deeming me worthy to be given way to. On contrasting lifestyles, does she share my disappointment and alarm about the fact that we can have legislation that targets some of the poorest people in society, but we cannot find the legislative means to tackle people such as Philip Green who have stolen workers’ pensions but who are happy to keep their own yachts...

Benefit Claimants Sanctions (Required Assessment) Bill: Aid Reviews (2 Dec 2016)

Kate Osamor: ...wait a long time to finally read the reviews. Why did it take so long? The reviews show that DFID is working in challenging environments and delivering aid transparently—no wastages, no reason for alarm—so why has the Secretary of State continued to show little support for DFID? I hope she will now show it some support. In 2011, the development reviews included specific...

Public Bill Committee: Technical and Further Education Bill: Further education bodies: senior management (1 Dec 2016)

Kelvin Hopkins: .... This is an important issue. If one wants to avoid insolvency, the best thing to do is ensure that one has someone with the skills to ensure one does not get into that situation in the first place, and that alarm bells are rung. As governors and politicians and Government Members, we are all well aware of what the problems are. If a principal is wilful and wants to do things beyond what...

Brexit: UK-EU Relationship - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Lord Berkeley: ...we will probably go on doing that for a long time. We really need to focus on what we want to get out of it. We read reports daily in the press of UK business and industry sectors expressing concerns and alarm about job losses or economic problems if we have a hard Brexit. To name but a few, they include research, agriculture, the building industry, finance and transport. I suppose one...

Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill (29 Nov 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...’s spending, not least through its use of tax havens. These dramatic shifts—under the cover of a “minor technical change” that we should all rush through in the House—must always set the alarm bells ringing for those of us who seek to scrutinise the Government and their decisions. I do not want to spend long on this, but we must feel additional alarm when we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Nov 2016)

Public Bill Committee: Technical and Further Education Bill: Examination of Witnesses (22 Nov 2016)

Gordon Marsden: ...alluded to, is two things: first, the critical National Audit Office report, which really bashed the former Department for Business, Innovation and Skills right around the head over some areas and set off alarm bells about financial stability—I am sure that played a major part in the insolvency regime set out in the Bill—and secondly, on a year-on-year basis, when we exclude...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 Nov 2016)

Margaret Ferrier: ...of a PIP assessment and who alleges that the Atos healthcare professional who conducted the assessment stood over her and watched as she completed the paperwork.

International Men’S Day (17 Nov 2016)

Margaret Ferrier: ...Men in Scotland are roughly three times more likely to kill themselves than women. There is no simple fix for this problem; it is multifaceted, with many influencing factors. This high suicide rate is more than a symptom; it should be an alarm bell warning us of what is truly an epidemic, and we really need to get a handle on the other issues that drive the ratio up. The hon. Member for...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Finances Bill: Unexplained wealth orders: England and Wales and Northern Ireland (17 Nov 2016)

Rupa Huq: ...of operational efficacy. If all our enforcement agencies were aware that they were able to factor in stuff that is located outside the UK properly from the beginning of their investigations, it could contribute to our agencies being quicker off the mark. They could sound a warning alarm bell. They would be oriented from the get-go to cast their net as widely as they can to hold criminals...

Public Bill Committee: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords]: “Unlawfully exported cultural property” etc (15 Nov 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ..., although we have already clarified that we are talking about a very small number of very important movable objects that might have been removed from a territory, and that in itself should set off alarm bells with any dealer. If it was an object of such cultural importance that it would be covered by the legislation, people would naturally take extra precautions to ensure that the object...

Technical and Further Education Bill (14 Nov 2016)

Gordon Marsden: ...of the sector, and current forecasts suggest that the number of colleges under strain is set to rise rapidly. As my hon. Friend the Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner) said in her excellent speech, it is no wonder, given the alarm bells about their continued viability that the Skills Funding Agency and the National Audit Office have been ringing. It is not just FE colleges that...

Hospitals: Unsafe Discharge - Question for Short Debate (9 Nov 2016)

Baroness Wheeler: found. Does the Minister acknowledge this? Are the Government ensuring that STP outcomes are focused on long-term sustainability rather than on short-term savings and cuts? How are the 44 footprints to be made in to a coherent national forward journey? On social care funding, the latest CQC report must surely have set alarm bells ringing right across government. Drawing on 20,000...

Scottish Parliament: Prevention and Eradication of Hate Crime and Prejudice (9 Nov 2016)

James Dornan: ...or verbal abuse because of their beliefs. Although Scotland woke up this morning to one of the biggest election shocks in recent history, we must accept the democratic will of the American people.

Margot James: ...Government. I am aware of the Which? inspection involving various tests, which found some equipment to be defective.

Neil Bibby: ...of her children. She was sanctioned, which had a devastating impact on her family: she was without money for four weeks and was unable to buy fuel cards for her gas and electricity meters or feed her children. Those examples alone should set alarm bells ringing for all members about the consequences that decisions can have on the very people whom our welfare system is supposed to protect....

EU: Unaccompanied Migrant Children (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: not become the victims of people traffickers, smugglers and other criminal gangs who want to abuse and exploit them.
