Jackie Doyle-Price: I listened carefully to my right hon. Friend’s representations on behalf of his constituents, and they filled me with alarm, because we have given a clear indication on this point and have established 18 specialist centres to deal with the consequences of mesh.

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Deidre Brock: ...than the consumer in the virtual world, and I am concerned that many do not appreciate the dangers of sharing too much of their lives online. Why would they?

The public alarm often raised about how our youngsters interact with IT is that too often they are closeted in their bedrooms playing games on the computer....

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence (18 Apr 2018)

Kenneth Gibson: ..., data is a valuable asset, and our laws are not yet fit to protect workers from automated surveillance that goes beyond the consent that is baked into employment contracts.

Maria Caulfield: ...8217;30s in Europe, we see that that is exactly what was happening then, when synagogues were being deconsecrated, Jewish people were being attacked, and murals were being painted on walls.

When we are seeing the democratic process in...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...words; they are the conclusions made by the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee’s 2017 publication on the Government response to its report on Chilcot.

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...life goals. It is a noble aim, good for social mobility and the economy, yet Birkbeck has seen a dramatic fall between 2010 and 2015. Degree take-up has fallen by 64%, sub-degree by 68%. This should set alarm bells ringing. How can such a worthwhile institution find its numbers so reduced? A similar vision led to the foundation of the Open University in 1969 for part-time students. The OU...

[Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Robert Courts: ...or Chipping Norton or Woodstock. I know that the shadow Chancellor has a red book that he likes to illustrate his points with.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day) (21 Mar 2018)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...equalities and human rights issues, we have heard Ministers talk about rights but say all too little about remedies—and when they do talk about remedies they do so in a way that gives some cause for alarm.

Paul Scully: ...in Geneva to say, “Okay, guys, what has happened? Nothing.” When the all-party group spoke to the Minister a little while ago, we said that if we get to this stage and still not much is happening, alarm bells will ring.

Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood), which may a be a first in this sort of debate—[Interruption.] He is in a state of high shock.
