Equipment Theft (Prevention) Bill (3 Mar 2023)

Greg Smith: ...many hill farms in my constituency, but in many parts of the country that is incredibly important. My hon. Friend the Member for South Cambridgeshire (Anthony Browne) referenced the Pig & Abbot pub rural crime survey. He highlighted that all 30 of the farmers he spoke to had been a victim of rural crime, underlying the necessity for the Bill. My hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset...

Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill - Second Reading (3 Mar 2023)

Lord Johnson of Lainston: ...this fair. It is considered in principle fair to pay temporary staff in a place of hospitality for the work they do. It would seem appropriate that, if someone works for a period in a restaurant or pub, they be rewarded with a share of the tips, commensurate with their input. Having said that, there have been comments—such as those of the noble Lord, Lord Mitchell—about additional pay...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 59 (2 Mar 2023)

Lord Fox: I think the Minister is departing from Clause 3. This sounds like small beer compared to some of the issues that colleagues have raised, but I asked a specific question about the difference in approach to the extension of sunsetting between Clauses 1 and 3, and I hoped the Minister would address that—if he was intending to.

Welsh Affairs (2 Mar 2023)

Tonia Antoniazzi: ...the WRU when it decided to say, “We’re banning Tom Jones’s famous song ‘Delilah’.” I had not heard “Delilah” for donkey’s years, but I went to a rugby match, and everybody in the bar and on the train was singing it, and it was uncomfortable. I am not going to rant on about “Delilah”. It gets sung. We know the words. We all know that the words are wrong, and it would...

Backbench Business: Hospice Sector: Fiscal Support and Cost of Living — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (2 Mar 2023)

Patricia Gibson: diminish the important role of pubs and restaurants, which are important parts of our community infrastructure, but we can hardly compare the services provided by a hospice to those provided by a pub. There is no equivalence, and for them to be eligible for the same level of energy support is, quite frankly, bewildering. Moreover, hospices cannot pass on increased costs to customers....

National Security Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 73 (1 Mar 2023)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ..., and I promise that I will address that. I know that we have had some debate about what it means to be directed by a foreign power. I want to reassure all noble Lords that this is a high bar. The natural meaning of “direction” is an order or instruction to act. It is possible that such direction could be delivered in the language of a request but only where there is a power...

Work of the Law Commission (1 Mar 2023)

Robert Buckland: ...with neatness, though I do like neat and tidy laws; it was because the estimate of the reduction of costs was a grand total of up to £256 million over a period of 10 years. That is no small beer when it comes to the criminal justice system, and I am proud that the Ministry of Justice did that during my time as Lord Chancellor. There are many other examples of how the Law Commission has...

National Security Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (1 Mar 2023)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...intelligence service”. They should not be criminalised for what they ought to have known, even if what they actually did know at the time is taken into account. It is too nebulous and such a low bar that much reporting could be caught. Editors and reporters would far too often be forced to stop an important public interest investigation because of the fear of breaking the law and...

Scottish Parliament: Court Buildings (Maintenance) (1 Mar 2023)

Keith Brown: There have been 239 court closures in England and Wales since 2010. With reference to the courts, the following is a quotation from the Bar Council: “Crumbling court buildings that are not fit-for-purpose, including leaks, infestations, and a lack of basic facilities”. The obvious link is that what they spend on justice in England and Wales has a direct consequence for what is spent in...

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (1 Mar 2023)

Fergus Ewing: today and yesterday that, between now and April, those extra costs will amount to £15 million for convenience stores and between £10 million and £20 million for hospitality. A leading craft beer and wine online retailer based in Scotland has stated that it will cost it comfortably a six-figure sum in the next six weeks, which will all be wasted if the scheme is halted in April. Will...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (28 Feb 2023)

Lord Benyon: ...the noble Duke, the Duke of Wellington, raised—I mentioned this yesterday in a meeting, but I will repeat it for the record—hitting the water framework directive standards is an incredibly high bar. The average river in this country is divided into a number of reaches for the purpose of the water framework directive. Each one of those reaches has a range of different measures—which...

Labour Market Activity (28 Feb 2023)

Matt Western: I will start by putting my remarks in the context of our economic situation. We are predicted to have the worst growth of any G20 nation bar Russia, which is, of course, heavily sanctioned. We have flatlining productivity, which is not down to the unions, as was perhaps being suggested by the hon. Member for Broadland (Jerome Mayhew)—far from it. If we compare the UK with France, for...

Northern Ireland Protocol - Statement (28 Feb 2023)

Lord True: ...of the United Kingdom in every respect. Under the protocol, in too many ways that simply was not the case. Take tax: when I was Chancellor, it frustrated me that when I cut VAT on solar panels or beer duty in pubs, those tax cuts did not apply in Northern Ireland. Now we have amended the legal text of the treaty so that critical VAT and excise changes will apply to the whole of the United...

South West Water: Performance — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (28 Feb 2023)

Rebecca Pow: ...South West Water permit compliance. It is prioritising high-spilling storm overflows for investigation. South West Water has now installed the event-duration monitoring I mentioned on all its sites, bar six or seven complicated ones, which will be under way. Since 2015, the Environment Agency has brought 56 prosecutions against the water companies more broadly, securing fines of more than...

NHS Workforce Expansion (28 Feb 2023)

Helen Whately: focused on discussions with the Royal College of Nursing, so it is my particular honour to speak on behalf of the Government today and to take a moment to re-set the tone, and indeed raise the bar, in this debate. I am very happy to talk about our NHS workforce at a time when we have record numbers of doctors and nurses working in our health service. I am equally happy to talk about...

Tributes to Baroness Boothroyd (28 Feb 2023)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...She would take on a Member of Parliament and she would take on Governments and the Opposition—it did not matter who it was. She even took on the press: poor Nigel Nelson had to sit in the Red Lion pub, because he was not allowed in the House. She put those papers into the filing cabinet and I came across them when we were having a clear out. They were quite amazing, including her letters...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Criminal Legal Aid Advisory Board (28 Feb 2023)

Mike Freer: ...the second on 24 January 2023. The first CLAAB meeting took place in October 2022, where CLAAB membership was discussed. The CLAAB’s membership covers the main representative bodies, including the Bar Council, the Law Society, Criminal Bar Association, London Criminal Courts Solicitors’ Association, Criminal Law Solicitors’ Association, Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX)...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Beer and Gin: Exports (28 Feb 2023)

Alberto Costa: To ask the Secretary of State for Business and Trade, whether her Department is taking steps to help support and increase the export of locally produced beer and gin to overseas markets.

Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy Bills: Support for Businesses (28 Feb 2023)

Tom Hunt: A few weeks ago I went to St Nicholas Street in Ipswich to talk to some of the local businesses, including Bar Twenty One and Hopsters. Bar Twenty One has made a fantastic start to business, despite the difficult climate. Those who run Bar Twenty One talked about pedestrianising the street, which I support. They also raised the issue of energy bills and their frustration at seeing a decline...

Boxing Clubs and Social Mobility (27 Feb 2023)

Matt Western: ...and social mobility? He may be interested to know that the famous Turpin brothers, of whom he may have heard, came from my constituency. It was Dick Turpin who broke what was then called the colour bar, and his brother Randolph who won the first world title for a black boxer. As a result of the breakthrough achieved by those brothers, Asian and black sportspeople now perform in national...
