Petition - Post Office in Westcliffe, Scunthorpe: Educational Attainment: Oldham (8 Feb 2017)

Nick Gibb: ...to confirm the Government’s commitment to Oldham and the other opportunity areas, and to discuss with the House our approach to improving education across the country. The reforms of the last six years show that professional autonomy combined with strong accountability is delivering improvement in our education system. Academy leaders benefit from that autonomy. The latest data show...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) (8 Feb 2017)

Lord Wood of Anfield: ...extra cost. So the temptation always exists for government to inflate the ambition of the charter and to put a lid on the increases in the licence fee simultaneously. That not only threatens the BBC’s autonomy but risks casting the Government with the suspicion of unwarranted interference. Our proposals—without going into too much detail—suggest a three-stage process....

Written Answers — Department for Education: Academies: Finance (8 Feb 2017)

Nick Gibb: ...changes the scale of financial support we need to make available over the remainder of this Parliament It remains the Government’s ambition that the whole school system ultimately benefits from the autonomy and freedom to innovate that academy status brings, and that schools work together in collaboration through strong multi-academy trusts. The Department still has sufficient...

Informal European Council: Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) (6 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: ...and the people of my country, Wales. Powers repatriated that straddle both devolved and reserved subject areas must be dealt with effectively, and the National Assembly must retain its autonomy. By “taking back control” the Prime Minister must not mean rolling back on devolution. New clause 162 would provide an avenue for that by committing the UK Government to conduct a review...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...have, in doing so, to comply with the Clause 45 code of practice, regardless of whether they were using the Clause 41 power. A wide range of public authorities and devolved Administrations need flexibility and autonomy to manage their own unique debt portfolios in the most suitable way, and in line with the legislative powers ascribed to them. There are a range of existing procedures and...

Regulation of Health and Social Care Professions Etc. Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Feb 2017)

Baroness Goldie: ...However, I have to say at the outset that we have reservations about the implementation of such a Bill. I shall explain why, because there is a context to all this. The White Paper, Enabling Excellence: Autonomy and Accountability for Healthcare Workers, Social Workers and Social Care Workers, published in February 2011, signalled the Government’s intention to ask the law commissions...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: ...Gapes. Congratulations on steering the debate so far. We have heard a lot in the debate about the complexities of the issues. At headline level, local authorities are crying out for more power and autonomy; they want to be able to crack on and get things done, but they also want a safety net. They want to know that if things beyond their control happen, the delivery of public services in...

NATO: Member State Spending - Question for Short Debate (1 Feb 2017)

Earl Howe: ...when our adversaries are making exponential advances in fifth-generation airframe technology and advanced communications, NATO must dedicate itself to developing vital disruptive capabilities, from cyber to space, and from autonomy to big data, to avoid obsolescence and keep ahead of the curve. Secondly, NATO is becoming far more agile in being able to deploy its forces when the call...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

John Nicolson: ...constituents and people throughout our country want to be part of an outward-looking, cosmopolitan Scotland. We want to be part of a union that is a community of nations and which respects diversity and autonomy. Members on the Conservative Benches profess to love the Union that binds Scotland and England, but the union that is dying is not the EU, with its long queue of candidate...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hong Kong: Politics and Government (1 Feb 2017)

Alok Sharma: .... In my discussions, I made clear that the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law underpin the implementation of 'One Country, Two Systems' and remain the foundations for the high degree of autonomy of Hong Kong and the rights and freedoms of its people. The rule of law and independent judiciary are essential to the success of 'One Country, Two Systems'. I encouraged all parties...

Statutory Sex and Relationships Education (31 Jan 2017)

Paula Sherriff: ...thrive, but to see them having the knowledge to contextualise some of the more harmful things they see in the world. They need to know explicitly that men and women are equal, to understand body autonomy and integrity and to know that pinching, groping or any form of sexual harassment is never okay. Children need to be taught that if someone touches them without their permission, they can...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (31 Jan 2017)

...in that year. From 2011 onwards, there was more risk of the kind of change you described—and with the introduction of 100% retention, even more still. I have always been in favour of greater local autonomy, but it begs the question whether there is a need, in a relatively small and relatively homogeneous country such as England—that would be true for Scotland and Wales,...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: ...are world-class and respected around the world, have been doing a great job as autonomous units. One of the main worries about the Bill in universities and research councils is the removal of the autonomy of these institutions. They function well thanks to that autonomy. I support Amendment 490D from the noble Baroness, Lady Brown, and the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, which would leave out the...

Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Jan 2017)

Baroness Deech: ...resent, even more than men do, having to give what they see as a disproportionate amount of their hard-earned assets to the man who left them. The public desperately want new, clear law. Most people prefer the certainty of misery to the misery of uncertainty. My proposed law combines autonomy with fairness. It will give divorcing wives entitlement and end the practice of treating them as...

Brexit: UK International Relations - Motion to Take Note (26 Jan 2017)

Baroness Coussins: ...will table specific proposals designed to make change happen in time to be effective for this Secretary-General, not his successor. Thirdly, our report recommends that the Secretary-General should be allowed more autonomy in managing the budget, while of course remaining accountable to member states. At present he has only limited authority over the size of the budget and is highly...

School Funding (25 Jan 2017)

Pauline Latham: ...in school funding and in trying to get a fair formula for schools many years ago, when I was the chairman of the Grant Maintained Schools Advisory Committee, which is now called FASNA—Freedom and Autonomy for Schools National Association. Work has been going on for 25 years to get a fair formula. The civil service always says there will be winners and losers; of course there are...

Opposition Day: Prisons (25 Jan 2017)

Yasmin Qureshi: ...suggest that each prison will be run by its governor and then every problem will somehow be resolved. However, it does not provide answers to questions such as whether governors will have complete autonomy from the centre, and whether they will have enough money to be able to carry out everything they want to do. For example, if a prison governor thinks that 500 inmates require a...
