Those are the bodies that make up Circularity Scotland, and small businesses are powerfully represented.

Treasury: People on Lower Incomes (21 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Hunt: I thank my hon. Friend for saying that. We think the average driver has saved about £200 in total since the 5p cut was introduced, but we are also introducing draught relief for beer drinkers in pubs and 30 hours of free childcare for young parents who are struggling with childcare costs. There are a lot of cost of living measures in the Budget.

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (20 Mar 2023)

Victoria Atkins: ...will see in the Finance Bill some practical measures to help small businesses ensure that they are not inadvertently—or indeed, sometimes fraudulently—dragged into that scheme. I do not want a pub restaurant claiming that discovering avocado is a research and development issue, so we are absolutely clamping down on that. I know that other hon. Members around the House raised that as...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 173 (20 Mar 2023)

Lord Stunell: ...that at that time there was no Secretary of State to write regulations. It was perfectly competent and possible for a whole community to change its name, and street names are surely rather smaller beer than that. The current practice is that, if residents want a change, they normally get some sort of petition together and a bit of publicity and talk to their local councillors or send a...

Cash Acceptance — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2023)

Paul Maynard: ...asbestos from the preferred location. People who thought that the moment a branch shut a banking hub would pop up as a like-for-like replacement misunderstood the situation. Campaigners set the bar so high that I think they will not be satisfied until they have a maternity unit included in the hub, as well as everything else—they almost seem not to want to win this battle that they have...

Animals (Low Welfare Activities Abroad) Bill (17 Mar 2023)

Aaron Bell: ...low-welfare activities abroad, we are doing the right thing to stifle the demand that causes such grave animal suffering. The Government are right in their commitment to continue to raise the bar and take the rest of the world with us, just as we set out to do when the action plan for animal welfare was announced. I am very pleased to support both Bills today.

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...round and policy U-turns of last summer, our economy remains on track to contract overall this year. We may avoid a recession, but the fact that Ministers are celebrating that shows just how low the bar has been set. People’s living standards remain on track to fall by an unprecedented 6% over two years, and the UK will remain towards the bottom of international league tables. The Budget...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (16 Mar 2023)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...a recession, and because the growth forecasts are bad but not quite as bad in the short term as last time. Is that what the Conservatives have come to? Is that the measure of success? Have we set a bar so low that we will trip over it as we leave the Chamber today? People are paying more than £1,000 more on their mortgages right now because of recent Conservative actions. Investment and...

Security of Government Devices (16 Mar 2023)

Oliver Dowden: ...the public sector can reject tenders from suppliers that pose a threat to national security, including where that threat arises from a parent or subsidiary company, so we are both lowering the bar and increasing the power. We did not have any of those powers when were in the European Union, so this is a significant step forward and I am very happy to look at further amendments that can...

Scottish Parliament: Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Mar 2023)

Liam McArthur: I will start with an apology. I have to leave the debate early in order to fly home for the Orkney youth awards. I am not anticipating picking up an award but, nevertheless, I am very much looking forward to attending the event. I congratulate Audrey Nicoll and her colleagues on the Criminal Justice Committee on their report. I did not sit through the evidence, but I have had an opportunity...

Income Tax (Charge) (15 Mar 2023)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: ...Chancellor said he would save Labour the “bother” of reviewing business tax, but then made no mention of business rates—a regressive tax that punishes our high streets. The help for draught beer will be welcome, but the problem in our pubs is not the tax on beer pulled from the pump; it is business rates, land values and planning laws that allow speculative breweries to sell pubs and...

Public Bill Committee: Firearms Bill: Clause 1 - Miniature rifle ranges and shooting galleries (15 Mar 2023)

Luke Pollard: ...costs only £79, and a renewal is only £49. That in no way covers the policing resources required to look at the suitability of an individual adequately. Full cost recovery is a really important bar. It would ensure that when someone applies for a firearm or shotgun certificate, whether for a miniature rifle or any other firearm, the police force had adequate resources to deal with that....

Ways and Means - Financial Statement and Budget ReportWays and Means (15 Mar 2023)

Jeremy Hunt: ...role in stopping more families experiencing that intolerable heartache. My penultimate cost of living measure concerns one of our other most treasured community institutions, the great British pub. In December, I extended the alcohol duty freeze until 1 August, after which duties will go up in line with inflation in the usual way. But today I will do something that was not possible when...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: EU Law: Northern Ireland (15 Mar 2023)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...safeguards the UK internal market and its core principles of market access. It removes constraints on UK-wide policymaking on alcohol duty, enabling NI to benefit from cuts on the duty on a pint of beer. There is a brand new green lane maintaining UK food safety standards, meaning the same food on supermarket shelves in NI and GB. Medicines will be provided across the UK on the basis of...

Public Order Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (14 Mar 2023)

Lord German: My Lords, we on these Benches accept that the amendments have been made in the Commons but are still concerned that they do not go far enough. Taking the matter back to the beginning, the bar set on which people can be convicted or the orders can eventually be issued is based on the balance of probabilities. That matter was the source of a great deal of discussion in this House. A bar has...

Illegal Migration Bill (13 Mar 2023)

Vicky Ford: ...should not be left to local authorities alone to decide how many people our country can support. I recall that when I was children’s Minister there was a time when all Scottish local authorities bar one refused to take any unaccompanied asylum-seeking children at all. I am concerned that if local authorities are left to their own decision making, many will say that they have no capacity...

Suicide Prevention and the National Curriculum — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Mar 2023)

Lee Anderson: ..., Graham. He was a lovely young man. When he walked into a room, he lit it up. Everyone wanted to be around him. Everybody liked Sean. We all loved Sean. I was drinking with him in the Dog House pub just a week before he took his own life. I never saw it coming. He was such a lovely young man; his death shocked the whole community and left many of us asking why. I would sit with him at...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Criminal Legal Aid Advisory Board: Public Appointments (13 Mar 2023)

The CLAAB’s membership currently includes representatives from the Bar Council, the Law Society, Criminal Bar Association, London Criminal Courts Solicitors’ Association, Criminal Law Solicitors’ Association, Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX)...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (10 Mar 2023)

Lord Monks: ...a hospital porter, I got £10 per week. It was common for my fellow male workers at the time to give their wives £5 to cover family food and rent while they spent the rest, in too many cases in the pub or on the horses. Many women were trapped, supplementing the family earnings with what was widely called pin money. There is no respectable word for the miserable salaries that they got. Of...
