Sam Gyimah: and of our country’s cultural history. British theatre is respected across the world for its high-quality productions and its skilled professionals both on and off the stage.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: ...that were dealt with in extenso by my hon. Friend were highly informative and persuasive. It may be that there is just a technical problem as far as the Government are concerned, but that they buy into the idea. Indeed, I am sure there is every possibility that they might buy into it a bit more if, when he responds to the debate, the hon. Member for Croydon North makes clear that he...

Petition - Menc Vaccine: Sound Reading System and Literacy (14 Jun 2018)

Anne Milton: an important approach to the teaching of reading and some aspects of writing. It involves developing phonemic awareness by connecting the sounds of spoken English with letters or groups of letters. I am sure that the hon. Lady knows much of this, but it is important to put it on the record. Synthetic phonics taught in a systematic way is the most effective method of teaching reading to...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Nigel Adams: ...of modem British multicultural society. Those people include Alfred Gardner, who lives up the road from me in Leeds.

Backbench Business: Immigration Detention (Victims of Torture) — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Joan Ryan: ...cannot deny that I am very disappointed in the Minister’s response. I do not expect her to stand here today and change policy, but I hope that she will go away and reflect on what has been said. I am sure that she will, and I hope that she will reflect to the degree that we hear something different when we get the Government’s response to the Shaw re-review. I think we are...

Trades Union Congress 150th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Henley: ...that has been made that there seems to be a lack of representation on these Benches. It is worth pointing out to the House that the debate was tabled only two days ago. It is often difficult, as I am sure that representatives of the trade union movement would acknowledge, to make people available at short notice. The noble Baroness had similar problems in that two of her speakers seem to...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Registration (14 Jun 2018)

David Rutley: We are. We are fleet of foot, that is for sure. Some of the questions are quite interesting. As we are talking about lots of different issues at this point, I want to go back to the comments from the hon. Member for Leeds North West, to bring it together. The musicians sector has said that it is broadly happy with the 20% exemption. Particularly for pianos, the vast majority are definitely...

Lord Duncan of Springbank: ...; used by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace, perhaps has a certain currency. It is important here that during these difficult times we do everything we can to ensure that there is safety first—making sure that our laws work and that the laws that keep Scots within a union that functions well for them work immediately after Brexit. That is what we are trying to deliver....

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Pre-1975 musical instruments (14 Jun 2018)

David Rutley: ...involved, it may be significant. My hon. Friend is absolutely right: if it is made of elephant ivory, it does not comply. However—we will debate mammoths at length when we debate clause 35, I am sure—mammoth ivory is not in the scope of the Bill as it stands, and therefore a plectrum will not be affected if it is made of mammoth ivory.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Acquisitions by qualifying museums (14 Jun 2018)

Sue Hayman: I am not entirely sure what kinds of items are covered. Surely any exempted item is covered by clause 10. I am trying to understand what items we are considering.

Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

Ian Blackford: ...I asked what options are available to us in this House to ensure that the Government understand the real concerns among the people of Scotland at the unprecedented power grab, and how we could make sure that our voices are heard. In response, the hon. Member for Bridgwater and West Somerset (Mr Liddell-Grainger) shouted, “Suicide”. I have to say that, in the opinion of many of...

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Jun 2018)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...numbers to prevent disorder. However, we are concerned for the safety of UK fans between match days, and for those who are not following England and who therefore may be at other stadiums. We are also concerned for the planning of later games. I am sure that the House shares my confidence that England will progress from the group stage to the knock-outs and all the way to the final, but it...

Brexit: Trade in Food — [James Gray in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

David Drew: ...again, we are in this place debating food and farming. I am even more pleased that the Minister is here, because otherwise I would not have been able to ask him the questions I want to ask him. I am sure he will try to answer them. The Chair of the Select Committee, the hon. Member for Tiverton and Honiton (Neil Parish), raised a number of issues that I wish to take up. I pay tribute to...

Immigration: Hostile Environment - Motion to Take Note (14 Jun 2018)

I pay tribute to the groups that he mentioned, but they...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Fresh applications and appeals (14 Jun 2018)

David Rutley: regulations—that is the answer to the previous question. My understanding is that it will be a fresh application. I will carry on talking about the importance of that for a second. We must make sure that people who believe that their application is right have the ability to do that. It will not be considered as an appeal. We will be agreeing the process for appeals over the...
