Registration of Marriage Bill: Kettering General Hospital (21 Oct 2016)

Philip Hollobone: ...integrated care model that we need elsewhere in the country, particularly where the NHS is servicing a broad population. In this case, it is servicing not just Kettering, but a partially rural county and rural area. This is a model that I am sure hon. Members will continue to support and that I will continue to have a keen interest in supporting. I hope the plans will be successful at...

Sexual Offences (Pardons etc) Bill (21 Oct 2016)

Wes Streeting: Because we have had so many contributions, time is short. The last time I was here for a private Member’s Bill with the Minister, he—entirely inadvertently, I am sure—talked it out. He still has over 20 minutes to address the issues. Can he commit to concluding his remarks so that we can have a vote on the Second Reading? Otherwise, it will not be his friends who are blamed...

Child Refugees: Age Checks - Statement (21 Oct 2016)

Baroness Jenkin of Kennington: ...through those who have documentation. However, he said that the majority of those on his bus were adults. In order for the British people to trust the system, I encourage my noble friend to make sure that the screening and registration are as robust as possible—I understand from my friend today that people being screened now are being given priority whereas those who were screened a...

Marriage and Civil Partnership (Minimum Age) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Oct 2016)

Baroness Goldie: ...they need. Where cases involve a minor, either in the UK or overseas, the Forced Marriage Unit works with the relevant statutory agencies and consular officials to provide advice and expertise to make sure that appropriate safeguarding measures are taken. Last year, the Forced Marriage Unit handled cases relating to 67 countries to which a victim was at risk of being taken in connection...

Abortion (Disability Equality) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Oct 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...cause stillbirth or severe, eventually lethal, neonatal illness. These are voices we should heed, as the noble Baroness, Lady Tonge, said, as they come from people who, day by day, deal with the women and children who would be affected by the Bill. In addition, I am sure that they deal with situations which I am certain the noble Lord, Lord Shinkwin, never meant to cover but which would be...

House of Lords Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Oct 2016)

Lord Elton: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for their contributions, friendly, confusing or hostile. I am not quite sure where to classify the Minister’s remarks. They seemed to be about as bright a red light as you can get without actually feeling that you necessarily have to stop because of it. If I spend a moment in replying as best I can to the remarks noble Lords have made, it may not be...

Child Refugees: Age Checks (21 Oct 2016)

Lyn Brown: ...the young people—five months in which refugees have had to live their lives in limbo and in conditions that none of us would like to live in, and certainly not to have our children live in. I am sure the Minister can assure the House that this delay is a result of the Home Office carefully assessing the age of the young people we are granting sanctuary to. Europol has warned that at...

Sexual Offences (Pardons etc) Bill (21 Oct 2016)

Craig Whittaker: ...the Wolfenden report in the late l950s. That was by no means a turning point in history, but it was the start of a lengthy process to put right a great wrong. It would be easy to argue—as I am sure many of my colleagues will—that a crime is a crime, and that that was the law of the land at the time. So why are we considering pardons for laws that our forefathers thought were...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children's Centres: Nottinghamshire (21 Oct 2016)

Gloria De Piero: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many Sure Start centres have closed in Nottinghamshire since 2010; and where such centres were located.

Heathrow (Southern Rail Link) (20 Oct 2016)

Paul Maynard: ...problem, the outputs that could solve that problem, and the varying benefits and disbenefits of a whole range of options. I recognise that the council’s presentation has its merits, and that it needs to be included and considered as part of that process. I am sure that the industry will be doing that. I look forward to hearing the initial industry advice before we take our decisions...

Brexit: Environmental and Climate Change Policy - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2016)

Baroness Parminter: ...questions. As we move outside the European Union, which acts as a backstop holding the Government to account, as does the European Court of Justice, we need to be that backstop. This House will make sure that we will hold the Government to account. Motion agreed. House adjourned at 5.03 pm.

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Oct 2016)

Chris White: give their take on an industrial strategy. I would go back one step further. I look forward to reading the book by the hon. Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan) when it finally comes out—I am sure that it will be selling round the corners. Until that time, I recommend anyone to read the book by Lawrence Freedman, “Strategy: a History”. It is important for us all...

National Arthritis Week — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (20 Oct 2016)

David Mowat: ...seems extraordinary, thinking about some of the subjects we debate, that it has been five years since we have debated this subject in the House of Commons. The debate has been such a pleasure, and I am sure that hon. Members here will see to it that it is not five years before we debate it again. An objective of having a debate in Westminster Hall is to raise awareness. People watch these...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Enforcement of sections 15 and 19 (20 Oct 2016)

Louise Haigh: ...and what work has already been done with the Financial Conduct Authority—I assume it will be with the FCA in this circumstance—to ensure that it will be regulating those providers, to make sure that they act with speed and due diligence on receiving notification from the age verification regulator under clause 15. It is disappointing that the Government do not consider new...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Assistance in connection with neighbourhood planning (20 Oct 2016)

Gavin Barwell: ...planning has been adopted mainly in more rural parts of the country and that we need to ensure that it is also well used in urban and more deprived and more transient communities—there is no argument there—I am not sure whether saying 50% of the money has to go to such areas is right, because by definition it is a demand-led budget. I want to encourage people from all around...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Changes to neighbourhood areas etc (20 Oct 2016)

Gavin Barwell: ...the questions, but it is clear that the view of the Committee is that we should allow for the current flexibility. On amendment 8, which is on the consultation arrangements required when a neighbourhood area is changed, I am sure we can all agree that consultation with the wider community is crucial. I assure hon. Members that there is already provision for that to happen where a...

Looked-after Children/Social Work Reform — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (20 Oct 2016)

Neil Carmichael: .... We look forward to hearing from the Minister about the Department’s fostering stocktake. We have written seeking information about that in readiness for that inquiry. The Minister can be absolutely sure that we will not rest until we see improvement. The work we have done, the fact we have charged the debate, as the Minister acknowledged—we are grateful for that—and...

Community Pharmacy in 2016-17 and Beyond - Statement (20 Oct 2016)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: That is why the pharmacy access scheme is very much there to make sure that pharmacies in these rural areas will be fully protected from any funding reductions. But the competition is there. Pharmacies on the whole are privately owned. It is important and only fair that, in these strapped times for the NHS, private companies should in some way also help the publicly funded NHS.

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: The age-verification regulator: designation and funding (20 Oct 2016)

Matthew Hancock: The debate on clause stand part is about the set-up of the regulatory structure and making sure that we get designation and funding right. It is our intention that the new regulatory powers and the new regulator or co-regulators will deliver on this. As the hon. Lady says, the BBFC has signed up to be designated as the age verification regulator responding for identifying and notifying. This...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Internet pornography: requirement to prevent access by persons under the age of 18 (20 Oct 2016)

Claire Perry: ...two definitions of ISPs: one relating to ancillary service providers and the other to enforcement and blocking. If we include ISPs in the definition of ancillary service providers, we want to make sure that they are captured, either explicitly or as a service provider. Is the Minister saying that he is comfortable with the enforcement regime without blocking? Would it require further...
