Scottish Parliament: Glasgow (Music Tourism) (20 Jun 2018)

Fiona Hyslop: ...Obviously, I was saddened to hear about the fire at the O2 ABC at the weekend. We have a number of much-loved venues that have provided stages for emerging new talent and for some of the biggest names in the music industry. Those venues include Barrowlands—I think that I saw The Alarm there once—King Tut’s and the Sub Club. They have played a pivotal role in the careers...

Backbench Business: Mortgage Interest — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Chris Stephens: My hon. Friend gives an excellent constituent example. Does she agree that many constituents across the UK found themselves getting a surprise letter from Serco, which caused fear and alarm across the board in people affected by this policy?

Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Andy McDonald: .... In February, the rail industry body, the Rail Delivery Group, confirmed it would not be able to complete timetables 12 weeks ahead of travel from 20 May for about six months. That should have set off alarm bells. Since 20 May, 43% of Northern’s trains have been delayed or cancelled each day. From 4 June, the train operator cancelled 165 trains a day, including all services to...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Norman Lamb: ...—I think she probably does. Clause 1 includes a definition of the “use of force”, and it is important to extend that to cover threats of the use of force, and coercion, which means “the use or threat of force, with the intention of causing fear, alarm or distress to control a patient’s behaviour or elicit compliance with the application of the use of...

Scottish Parliament: Mossmorran Flaring (14 Jun 2018)

David Torrance: a vital feature that ensures the on-going safety of the plant, the noise, vibration and bright lights that are emitted during unplanned incidents—which have increased in frequency over the past year—have caused much alarm and distress among local residents. The light from the elevated flare can be seen for many miles from the plant. Fife ethylene plant seeks to minimise the...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill (11 Jun 2018)

Edward Davey: ...of Justice rulings, that the UK may struggle to get an adequacy agreement from the Commission. The recent immigration data exemption from data rights such as subject access requests are very likely—rightly, to my mind—to be sounding alarm bells at the Commission. Yet it is super-vital to our fight against terrorism and against organised crime, vital for this country’s...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: High Rise Flats: Fires (11 Jun 2018)

James Brokenshire: ...that interim measures be put in place to ensure the risk of fire is minimised while these buildings await remediation of their cladding systems. These include the provision of waking watch wardens and/or common alarm systems to ensure that all residents are alerted to fire and the need to evacuate. Fire and rescue services have been checking these new arrangements in affected buildings to...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Permitted payments (7 Jun 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...a particular property. There are numerous examples, but they may include patio doors that need particular care, failure to comply with prescribed conditions on communal areas such as bike storage, alarm fobs and other such things. Government simply cannot account for every individual circumstance regarding a particular property, which is why we have taken the approach that we have. We very...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Ruth George: ..., searching for missing persons, dealing with antisocial behaviour, domestic incidents and violence. Officers often have to attend dangerous incidents singlehanded. Last month, one of our officers responded to a burglar alarm at a warehouse—a fairly common incident. He went out on his own in a police car as usual, but when he got there, three cars sped out of the warehouse straight...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...the services that he provided to his local community and to the people who came into his shop every single day. In all my life, I have never seen such profound change in the retail sector, and the alarm bells are ringing loud and clear. How many more Uncle Raymonds are there who want to start their own business but are frightened to do so in the current climate? How many more Uncle...

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Neil Gray: ...valid point regarding the ability of the UK Government to adhere to the Equal Pay Act 1970 when they are engaged in 200 pay negotiations, and the hon. Member for Solihull (Julian Knight) expressed his alarm at such a notion. My hon. Friend also highlighted the incredible statistics on low pay in the Department for Work and Pensions—the irony is not lost, I am sure—and the...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Chris Grayling: That is a very interesting question. My view is that the Network Rail timetabling process has gone badly wrong, and I cannot understand why GTR did not raise the alarm. I have asked Professor Glaister to go through all this because I want to understand exactly where the accountability should lie and be able to take appropriate action.

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill - Second Reading (4 Jun 2018)

Lord Patten: why, during debates in another place, the Bill received all-party assent and agreement—and I congratulate my noble friend and his colleagues on getting that. Having said that, I do not want to alarm the noble Baroness but I agreed with much of what she said—but that is business for another time. This sort of cross-party agreement is not without precedent. It is reasonably...

Peru: Visa Requirements - Question (4 Jun 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: I shall certainly take back what my noble friend has said—what the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, said certainly triggered alarm bells for me. I shall take back the points made by my noble friend and the noble Lord, get an answer and write to them.

Passenger Ships: Evacuation, Search and Rescue Plans - Question for Short Debate (23 May 2018)

Lord Bradshaw: ...away from their drink to listen. However, it is extremely important and I know that companies such as Saga pay a lot of attention to it and to the nature of the people they are carrying. It is also about alarm systems and off-site communications for summoning help from wherever it may come. Risks, as the noble Lords, Lord Berkeley and Lord Greenway, said, are made greater by distance. Of...

Transport Secretary: East Coast Franchise (23 May 2018)

Andy McDonald: inform the House of a decision that he took all those months ago? Last year, it emerged that the Government decided to cancel rail electrification projects in March but they did not announce the decisions until after the general election in July. The collapse of the east coast franchise should set alarm bells ringing at the Department for Transport.

Somerset County Council: Unitary Status — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 May 2018)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...knew quite how Jonesy arrived at £28 million, including me. The present leader of the county council is still running with the idea 12 years later, and I am afraid that it is as wrong now as it was then. This is what rings alarm bells in my mind: Somerset County Council has never been good with money. I have looked at its books just to prove how bad it is. In 2007, it had only...

Public Bill Committee: Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: Trailer registration (22 May 2018)

Alan Brown: ...tow bars are fitted and the subsequent maintenance work required. Hopefully the Minister will reflect on what he has heard, particularly the statistic that there is a 91% inspection fail rate, which should cause alarm bells to ring. I congratulate both the hon. Lady and the Minister, but the Government must still consider those other aspects.

Freedom of Speech: Universities — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 May 2018)

Fiona Bruce: ...extremism, which has been used by some universities, is not used to prevent free speech at universities. Hate speech results from the use of threatening, abusive or insulting words, or the displaying of written material that is threatening, abusive or insulting and therefore intended to cause the person harassment, alarm or distress, or to stir up racial hatred. Although that is the...
