Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (9 Jun 2014)

the Earl of Lytton: .... Operations at the front line will always trump policy. We still have many questions but few answers to the points raised about police culture and operations. A senior judge has recently questioned the objectivity of that other safeguard, the IPCC, as mentioned by the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon. Under anti-social behaviour legislation, the police have virtually untrammelled...

Message to Attend Her Majesty: Speaker’s Statement (4 Jun 2014)

John Bercow: ...hon. Members. I begin by reminding Members of their duty to observe the code of conduct agreed by the House and uphold the seven principles of public life that underpin it: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. That duty is owed both to the House and to those who elect us to our places here. Every member of the public has a right to expect...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Local Government Code of Conduct for Councillors (27 May 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...before the code of conduct can come into force, it must be laid before, and approved by resolution of, the Assembly.

Coalition Government: Constitution Committee Report — Motion to Take Note (13 May 2014)

Baroness Grender: ...to discover that no Liberal Democrats are at the table, and wondering what on earth to do about it. This is where I believe that the role of the Permanent Secretary in each department is vital. Permanent Secretaries should have sufficient objectivity and seniority to ensure that their departments are run with an understanding of two political parties in power. Their role as an honest...

Ukraine — Statement (13 May 2014)

Baroness Warsi: ...Luhansk. The polls were marked by blatant fraud, including multiple voting, no proper voting lists, and threats and intimidation against Ukrainians standing up for the unity of the country. These referendums met none of the basic standards of objectivity, transparency and fairness, and they have no credibility whatever. We will not recognise these or any other attempts to undermine the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Ukraine (13 May 2014)

William Hague: .... Those polls were marked by blatant fraud, including multiple voting, no proper voting lists, and threats and intimidation against Ukrainians standing up for the unity of their country. The referendums met no basic standards of objectivity, transparency and fairness, and they have no credibility whatsoever. We will not recognise those or any other attempts to undermine the territorial...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Ukraine (12 May 2014)

Philip Hammond: The so-called referendum that took place over the weekend was illegal. It did not meet any standards of objectivity, transparency or fairness and it was not properly conducted as a public referendum or election. Indeed, its organisers did not even pretend to meet any of those standards. In short, it was a sham and a farce. We do not recognise any outcome that might follow from it. The...

Business of the House (No. 1): Clause 33 — Amount of Penalty (29 Apr 2014)

Alison Seabeck: ...If a future Government adopt the same approach” and seek to run Defence Procurement via a GoCo “the report on the effectiveness of the new DE&S-plus-plus organisation will be crucial, as will be the objectivity of that future Government’s assessment of DE&S-plus-plus”— as it was referred to in the House of Lords— “and their case for...

Bill Presented: Civil Service Reform (3 Apr 2014)

Jon Ashworth: ...and help to protect our borders. The model of our civil service has stood the test of time, ever since Sir Stafford Northcote and Sir Charles Trevelyan’s reports 150-odd years ago. It is a model of political impartiality, objectivity and integrity. Those values should be maintained at the heart of the civil service, and they are values to which I reiterate our absolute commitment....

Immigration Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (3 Apr 2014)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...to support the group. I have invited the noble Lord, Lord Best, and a number of groups to join the panel. It will also include local representatives from the area covered by the trial. The panel will provide transparency, objectivity and the necessary degree of expert input for the first phase, the location of which will be determined and published before the House rises for the summer. We...

Defence Reform Bill: Third Reading (2 Apr 2014)

Lord Rosser: ...now being introduced did not transform the defence procurement operation. If a future Government adopt the same approach, the report on the effectiveness of the new DE&S-plus-plus organisation will be crucial, as will be the objectivity of that future Government’s assessment of DE&S-plus-plus and their case for believing that the GOCO option would be more successful. Proper...

House of Lords Reform (No. 2) Bill — Second Reading (28 Mar 2014)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...to account and as a House that wins respect nationally and internationally—not least in the European Union, for which respect the noble Lord, Lord Grenfell, must take much credit—for the quality and objectivity of its work. That respect really matters to this House and to our constitution, and it must be retained. There must surely be a risk that if the House gets ever larger...

Scottish Parliament: Independence (Civil Servants’ Impartiality) (6 Mar 2014)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...the inquiry. It provides the opportunity to affirm both the commitment of the Scottish Government to the principles that underpin the operation of the civil service—impartiality, integrity, objectivity and honesty—and the record of the civil service in Scotland in upholding those values. I am pleased also that the committee is to examine the role of the civil service in support...

Immigration Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (5 Mar 2014)

Lord Judd: ...seems a dangerous precedent. Where is this going to stop? One of the things that is crucial to our understanding of justice and the operation of the law in this country is the independence and objectivity of the judge within the law. This matters as a principle for all citizens in Britain because this move, if implemented, is a precedent, but it also matters very much in terms of community...

Pancreatic Cancer (4 Mar 2014)

Jane Ellison: ...NHS, and that the price the NHS pays is more closely linked to the value a medicine brings. These can sometimes sound like quite cold decisions, but they are designed to help us to have a sense of objectivity in what are always very difficult decision-making processes. I assure my hon. Friend that NICE will carry out a full public consultation before implementing any changes in the way...

Petitions: Ugandan Anti-homosexuality Law (12 Feb 2014)

Crispin Blunt: .... If they were truly scientists, they would be ashamed of that. Another member of the commission, Dr Bitekyerezo, reduced the arguments for homosexuality’s biological connections to a belief in a single homosexual gene. Political courage and scientific objectivity seem to be wholly absent. Another reason that is cited for the Bill is that it will protect the traditional African...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Spring Supplementary Estimates 2013-14 and Vote on Account 2014-15 (10 Feb 2014)

Christopher Hazzard: ...in all our schools to effectively target social need and to build a sustainable and equitable schools estate.  For that to be achieved, a revised funding scheme would have to be not only fit for purpose but would have to meet the principles of objectivity, equality and transparency.  With that in mind, the Minister's plans to reform the funding scheme are to be welcomed and no...

Standards in Public Life — Question for Short Debate (4 Feb 2014)

Lord Bew: ...across the public sphere, not just Parliament. Its first ever report, in 1994, recommended seven principles to guide the behaviour of those who serve the public in any way: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. Those principles are popularly known, after the first chairman, as the Nolan principles. The committee published its fifth general...

The Future of the Civil Service — Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2014)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...more effective—whether in the complexity of laws or procedures, the lack of devolution or our constant demand for new skills to fulfil new tasks. As has been acknowledged, our Civil Service is admired around the world. It is politically impartial, with core values of integrity, propriety and objectivity, and it has the ability to transfer its expertise and loyalty from one Government...
