Higher Education and Research Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2016)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...cements that principle at its heart. UKRI will be established as an arm’s-length body, independent of government. I can reassure the noble Lord, Lord Renfrew, that it will be required to delegate authority for research and innovation funding decisions to its executive chair, who will have autonomy where this falls into the area of expertise. This includes the continuation of the...

Road Traffic Accident Prevention (6 Dec 2016)

Flick Drummond: ...because of the hazards it imposes, the threat of pollution, the difficulty of parking and the gridlock caused by the sheer weight of traffic. Those are all particular threats in Portsmouth, a densely populated area with poor road access and public transport that is in serious need of investment—I am not shy about lobbying Ministers on that. In an urban environment, a change in...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill: Condition for exercise of power to increase limit: adherence to DFID partnership principles (6 Dec 2016)

Rory Stewart: ..., where 9,000 people depend on us directly and 30,000 indirectly for their jobs. We are trying to get the balance right as we gradually increase standards while maintaining that important part of the economy of the area. With that, I ask politely for the amendment to be withdrawn.

Delegated Legislation: Rail Services: Southend (6 Dec 2016)

Paul Maynard: ...has begun to suffer once again, especially in the last couple of months. A significant factor has been an unprecedented number and length of temporary speed restrictions imposed by Network Rail due to the London clay in the area expanding in response to the change in the weather. This opens up small voids underneath the track and, for safety reasons, trains are therefore required to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Bushmills Outdoor Education Centre: Proposed Closure (6 Dec 2016)

Peter Weir: ...schools budget as much as possible. There will be gaps. It can be dressed up as being redirected, but gaps will be plugged. From that point of view, if 񊸳 million is not saved in one area, it will have to be saved elsewhere. That is the economic reality of the situation. I appreciate that there will always be paranoia about how any consultation is conducted, who is...

Flood Re Insurance Scheme — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (6 Dec 2016)

Therese Coffey: ...remains. Flood defences are not always appropriate, and where they are we have seen that they can be overtopped in extreme events, as happened a year ago. We need to work across the whole catchment area to slow the flow of water through natural flood management and to prepare for any flooding that does occur. As well as ensuring we have a first-class emergency response to flood events,...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill: Condition for exercise of power to increase limit: poverty reduction (6 Dec 2016)

Stephen Doughty: ...questions about the potential negative effects on livelihoods and poverty eradication because the investment is in palm oil. There are questions about land grabs, the rights of people living in the area and whether that is even a sustainable product to be investing in. Again, it seems odd that we are investing in fossil fuel projects when we are told that climate change is one of the...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill: Condition for exercise of power to increase limit: Sustainable Development Goals (6 Dec 2016)

Patrick Grady: ..., number 7 on energy access and number 13 on climate change. But the SDG framework is holistic and it is important to show how progress is being made across the board, and that progress in one area is not being traded off against progress in another. As with the previous requirement to report on poverty reduction that we had hoped for, this proposed new clause would help prevent any risk...

Tidal Lagoons and UK Energy Strategy — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (6 Dec 2016)

Callum McCaig: ...mentioned the potential of the tidal scheme—SeaGen—in Strangford lough; and in the Pentland firth between Scotland and the Isles of Orkney there have been world firsts in the deployment of tidal turbines in an area renowned for its tides. That has potential, and I would like to question the Minister about the contracts for difference that were announced last month. We know that...

Casey Report - Statement (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...noble friend for her warm welcome for the report. I acknowledge and underline what she said about the charitable third sector and the role it plays. It does an immense amount of great value in this area. She is right about the importance of existing projects and the integration we already see. I have seen many successful ones, including with my noble friend in Bradford at the football...

Health Services Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Review of the impact of the Act on pricing, research and development, and innovation (6 Dec 2016)

Philip Dunne: ...-terms funding over the course of this Parliament. The income from the voluntary and statutory schemes can and does fluctuate; that is the biggest problem with ring-fencing, which could bring risks in this area. For example, the annual income from the PPRS has varied between 310 million and 839 million in a full financial year in England, so there is the potential for the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Voluntary Youth Clubs: Governance (6 Dec 2016)

Peter Weir: ...from the price on the shelf. It is a question of comparing like with like. I am not in a position to be able to knock down prices to provide a cheaper alternative. I commend anyone from the Groomsport area to Mr Chambers's shop. He provides a very good service. You will not get stuff being given away, like Santa's grotto, but the Member will provide a good service. The reality is...

Train Operating Companies - Statement (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My noble friend speaks with great expertise and knowledge of this area, and he is right to point out the importance of seeing progression through careers across the transport network—rail is no exception. Certainly, skills will be an important part of the rail strategy that, as we have announced, will be brought forward next year. As I am sure my noble friend knows as a former skills...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Media (6 Dec 2016)

Peter Weir: ...seriously enough and try to dismiss it. The Bill, which received Royal Assent on 12 May this year, recognises cyberbullying as a key aspect. It is a complex legal issue, and cyberbullying is an area in which it is hard to differentiate. Schools have a clear remit, and that includes a provision for policies to be developed by boards of governors. However, it is very difficult also to...

Young People: Self-Harm - Question (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Watts: The Minister will know that the mental health service is in crisis. He says on a regular basis that the Government are putting more resources into the area of mental health for young people. He also knows that that money is not getting spent by the trusts. When is he going to sack the trusts, or sack the chief executives of the trusts, for failing to spend that money on vital services for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Schools: Maintenance Budget (6 Dec 2016)

Peter Weir: I thank the Member for his question. School maintenance is an area of the budget that is always under pressure due to the ageing schools estate. That is partly why there needs to be an overall assessment of the schools estate. While there is a significant capital programme under way involving new builds, school enhancement projects and minor works, a significant number of schools require...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: EMAG Report: Recommendations (6 Dec 2016)

Simon Hamilton: ..., and that taking a decision in respect of one recommendation from EMAG will have consequences elsewhere in the energy system. What I am attempting to do, in what is a very complex and often very technical area, is to take cognisance of all the issues, whether around renewables, manufacturing and affordability, or security of supply, and to come forward with a comprehensive energy policy...

Casey Report (6 Dec 2016)

Clive Betts: ...the Secretary of State indicate his response to the detailed recommendations of the report, particularly a key recommendation for the creation of a new programme to improve community cohesion, with area-based plans and projects? Does he recognise that such a programme will need targeted funds, rather like the impact funds that the Government abolished? Does the Secretary of State agree...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Covenant Reference Group (6 Dec 2016)

Jim Allister: I commend Mr Beattie for tabling the motion. It is an issue that has long been deserving of attention, because it is a scandal that this part of the United Kingdom is the only area that does not have representation in respect of those who have served in the armed forces. Of course, there is a very clear reason for that, which is that Sinn F閕n has exercised a veto on Northern Ireland...

Rail Infrastructure (Train Operating Companies) (6 Dec 2016)

Chris Grayling: I know that there has been disruption in the Kent area in the past couple of years because of the improvements at London Bridge, and there are lessons to be learned from the way they have been carried out to make sure that we minimise disruption in the future. We need big investments that will create extra capacity, but they have to be done in a way that causes as little damage as possible to...
