Bill Presented: Strengthening the Union (23 Jul 2018)

Lesley Laird: ...by talking about that concept and the ties that bind our Union together. Working together, our family of nations has achieved great things for the many and not just the few, and when we are once again united in common purpose, under a Labour Government, I know we will do great things again. Our shared history includes wartime courage, facing down fascism, building homes fit for heroes and...

Part-time and Continuing Education and the Open University - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...in which there is huge technological change. Those who are disadvantaged educationally are also disadvantaged economically and socially. We have to place learning at the heart of a national common purpose and draw into learning and training those who missed out the first time round and have come late to the party, but who want a change of direction. Turning education into a commodity has...

Ministry of Justice (2 Jul 2018)

Eddie Hughes: .... From that experience, it became much clearer to me that this was a more complex problem. My boss decided it would be appropriate for me to attend the Meridian course with an organisation called Common Purpose, and that gave us the opportunity to go into prisons and see the problem at first hand. We visited Featherstone Prison and Leicester Prison. It was at Leicester Prison in particular...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Nato (20 Jun 2018)

Bob Stewart: ...were surrounded by the East Germans and the Russians. They are obviously hostages to fortune. An attack on them should trigger NATO action. I am a big supporter of NATO. It binds 28 states together and gives us common purpose. But in any high intensity war, NATO would have to change hugely. It is not good enough to fight at the moment, and it would have to change very fast indeed if it...

Bee Population - Question for Short Debate (19 Jun 2018)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...with organisations that include Plantlife, National Parks, the Wildlife Trust and indeed its tenant farmers. These are but two of a range of areas and it is very important that the Government are joined up and that we collaborate as one in a common purpose. My noble friend Lord Robathan raised the particular issue of agri-environment schemes. Since 2011, these schemes have played a huge...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (13 Jun 2018)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...of a ministry for mental health and the post of Minister for Mental Health. We had fought for that for many years and we were gratified when it was made real. However, after two years, the sense of common purpose that we shared on that day has all but evaporated. We can no longer find consensus with a Government that consistently lets us down so much on an issue of such importance. We live...

Scottish Parliament: Improving the Lives of Scotland’s Gypsy Travellers (12 Jun 2018)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: I thank the Government for securing today’s time and for the cabinet secretary’s language in what was a very consensual opening speech. We share a strong sense of common purpose on this matter and I thank her for that. I also put on record my thanks to my friend and colleague Mary Fee. I will be a proud member of the CPG alongside her. She has schooled me in things that I did not...

Brexit: Sanctions Policy (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2018)

Lord Tugendhat: ... to have said that war is simply a continuation of political influence with the addition of other means. If that is true of war, it is certainly true of sanctions. Sanctions emerge from discussions on common foreign and security policy, from which a common purpose or a coalition of the willing begins to take shape. If our influence and the value of our contribution are to be maintained, we...

Petition - Basingstoke Motorway Service Areas: National Bereavement Care Pathway (24 Apr 2018)

Will Quince: ...Trust, while others are very small, including those that make teddy bears or knit little items of clothing for their local neonatal units. We are bringing all those charities together with one common purpose: to reduce baby loss and ensure that we have world-class bereavement care. This is what has genuinely made the difference. When politicians work with the charitable sector, the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Mar 2018)

Ian Blackford: ...vice-chair of the Scottish Tories. We know that some of that money was given to Aggregate IQ, a reported franchise of Cambridge Analytica. We know that Chris Wylie is “absolutely convinced” of a common purpose between Vote Leave, BeLeave, Veterans for Britain and the DUP. The shady business of data mining and undermining electoral laws goes right to the heart of the Prime...

Scottish Parliament: City Region Deals (27 Mar 2018)

Keith Brown: ...of the points Bob Doris raised—the Scottish Government is committed to 100 per cent coverage of Scotland with growth deals. I want to be equally clear that we want the UK Government to declare that it will join us in common purpose on that. In line with a recommendation that was made in the committee’s report, I am keen to agree a timetable with the UK Government for the...

Police Station Closures: Solihull and West Midlands (6 Mar 2018)

Andrew Mitchell: ...in an excellent line of chiefs of police. This is also a community of Members of Parliament who, on the whole, work quite well together on common themes. I think of GKN, of homelessness and our common purpose—I say this particularly to the Police Minister—in trying to ensure proper funding for the families of those who suffered so grievously and have not yet got closure...

Scottish Parliament: Ayrshire Growth Deal (22 Feb 2018)

Keith Brown: ...economic partnership to steer the region towards greater inclusive growth. We have a commitment to 100 per cent of coverage of Scotland with growth deals and we want the UK Government to join us in that common purpose. I last met the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 1 February to discuss the issue and we have agreed to meet again shortly to explore how...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Alison Thewliss: I agree that we perhaps can and should enhance what we do, but we must take care not to lose what we have so far. We must not lose that co-operation and sense of common purpose against evils in the world, which we have had as a part of the EU. I support the points on human rights made by the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman). Ministers did not quite recognise the point that...

Role of Women in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (5 Feb 2018)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...at the palace gates. This fact demonstrates the nature of the campaign for women’s suffrage: it crossed social boundaries, cultural boundaries and international boundaries. It brought together women from all walks of life in a common purpose, all determined to be heard and all intent on making their case. Women wanted to be truly represented in the laws and customs of our country;...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Lupton: ...the nation, and which complies with the result of a referendum that this House and the other place approved in 2015. However naive it sounds in today’s Alice in Wonderland political environment, what I ask for—and believe the nation should, and does, expect—is that we find a common purpose around which the national interest can coalesce. I very much hope that our debates...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Adonis: ...to the House 50 years ago on Britain’s second application to join the European Union, “my Lords, we are part of Europe … our civilisation, our heritage … our manners … are all European … The vision of a United Europe, of France, Italy, Germany and Britain united in common purpose and effort, must surely be something to stir the imagination of even the...

Joint Enterprise (25 Jan 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: ...is more difficult to identify who the actual perpetrators are. The danger of a miscarriage of justice is therefore all the greater. Several Members have referred to the history of what has variously been called common purpose, secondary liability or joint enterprise. My hon. Friend the Member for Ealing North (Stephen Pound) said that the offence was originally developed by the common law...

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (23 Jan 2018)

Maurice Golden: ...the most powerful it has ever been, as a result of the Scotland Act 2016. The withdrawal bill means that it will become even more powerful—that, too, should be supported throughout the chamber. That demonstrates that there is a common purpose, and the Scottish Conservatives, the UK Government and the SNP all agree that the withdrawal bill must be properly amended so that this...

United States: Foreign Policy - Motion to Take Note (18 Jan 2018)

Baroness Helic: ...ought to admit that we have been distracted by our own difficulties, including but not limited to Brexit, which has contributed to an atmosphere of “each country for itself”, rather than joint thinking and common purpose. However all-consuming the demands of Brexit, we cannot put on autopilot our foreign policy responsibilities as a member of the UN Security Council, and as an...
