European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...partnership with the UK on security and justice, the EU’s interests must be protected, a non-member state cannot have the same rights as a member state, there must be a balance of rights and obligations and the EU must continue to have autonomy in making decisions”. That applies particularly to internal security, which we will be moving on to, but if you talk to the Norwegians,...

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Baroness Neville-Jones: ...one belt, one road initiative brings a Chinese investment strategy, which includes converting debt into equity stakes in the economies of the countries along the route—with the attendant political influence that will bring—right to the borders of Europe. Part of maintaining our autonomy is to develop our own technological capabilities, and we are well placed to compete in...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: ...? There are some disadvantages with a free trade agreement in terms of rules of origin, but they do not seem to have bothered Switzerland, Iceland or Norway very much. The disadvantages of being inside the customs union are threefold: operating inappropriate tariffs, not having autonomy over domestic rules and goods, and not being able to conclude trade agreements. Both noble Lords who...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Common Foreign and Security Policy (10 Apr 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: On leaving the EU, the UK will pursue an independent foreign policy. The future security partnership with the EU should respect both the EU's decision-making autonomy and the UK's sovereignty, and enable us to combine our efforts to the greatest effect where this is in our shared interest. We aim to be able to consult regularly with the EU, deliver operationally through EU mechanisms where...

Unconditional University Offers (28 Mar 2018)

Sam Gyimah: ...proportion of such offers remains relatively low, at some providers unconditional offers account for more than 20% of all offers made. The House is right to be concerned. Universities rightly have autonomy over their admissions. The principle of institutional autonomy has been recognised as central to our higher education system for many years. In fact, the Higher Education and Research...

Scottish Parliament: Local Taxation (28 Mar 2018)

Andy Wightman: ...to Parliament today to make it clear that the status quo is no longer tenable. We are focused on the council tax as a start, but the system of local government finance as a whole is not fit for purpose. We need not only to have a new system of local tax, but to give councils far greater fiscal autonomy and to adopt and agree a fiscal framework to replace the annual arguments about the...

Scottish Parliament: City Region Deals (27 Mar 2018)

Lewis Macdonald: ...everyone. As Keith Brown said today and in his response to the committee: “autonomous, democratically elected local authorities” must be “at the centre of design and delivery of all growth deals.” That autonomy is important. Councils are not the agents of central Government either here or elsewhere, but democratically elected, so their accountability can help to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...the EU, and the rights in the UK of those established in Gibraltar are no exception to that. We respect Gibraltar’s own legislative competence and the fact that Gibraltar has its own degree of autonomy and responsibilities. For example, Gibraltar has its own repeal Bill. We are committed to fully involving Gibraltar as we prepare for negotiations to leave to ensure that its...

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Bill Cash: The European guidelines of 23 March and the EU proposed legal protocol both insist on the autonomy of the EU legal order and the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice.

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Mar 2018)

Baroness O'Loan: ...we need now to contemplate the situation in 2018, not the situation in 1967, so it is not about refusing people access to treatment. There have been suggestions that it is about denying patient autonomy. A patient does not have and never has had the right to compel a particular practitioner to do a particular medical procedure. However, they have the right to a service and the right, if...

Welfare Reform and Work Act — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (21 Mar 2018)

Rachel Maclean: ..., as many want to. I believe, as do the Government, that work is not just an economic proposition.

To support that with practical measures, the Department has expanded the older claimant champion network in all 34 Jobcentre Plus districts. The champions...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Higher Education: Equality (21 Mar 2018)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: Autonomous higher education providers, including Russell Group members, are responsible for their own decisions about leadership appointments.

The Act is...

National Curriculum: Litter - Question (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Agnew of Oulton: My Lords, I agree with the noble Lord that it is very important that teachers are allowed to teach. The core of our reforms over the last seven or eight years has been the granting of autonomy to schools and the freeing up of the key stage 3 curriculum to give space for the teaching of things that are not directly linked to exams. I come back to my general theme: much of education is about...
