British Steel (22 May 2019)

Greg Clark: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for the spirit in which she approached her response to the statement, recognising that there is a total common purpose across both sides of the House to provide the confidence for new investors to be able to take on these assets, and we all, wherever we sit in this Chamber, want this to be a change of ownership rather than something that puts a stop to steel...

Medical Cannabis Under Prescription (20 May 2019)

Andy McDonald: ...dealing with their child’s epilepsy. Some terrific contributions have been made today. I pay tribute to all the speakers, because they spoke with such intelligence and expertise. There is a real common purpose to get this right—I know that that is the case—which is this House of Commons at its absolute best. I congratulate each and every one of the speakers who has contributed. We...

Ian Murray: ...this country round. It is up to us, all of us, together. This is our time of opportunity: the time to summon up all our commitment; the time to gather round us all our strength. And, united in our common purpose, it is the time to lead our country forward to the great tasks that lie ahead.” As we commemorate the 25th anniversary of John Smith’s death, let us remember the words that...

Committees: Full-time Social Action (8 May 2019)

Ben Bradley: ...if it was Government-backed. A programme like that has the potential to build a platform for young people from different regions and socioeconomic backgrounds to serve together side by side for a common purpose while restoring national pride and a sense of duty and service. There is also an opportunity here to work with young people who are disabled or have special educational needs, to...

Speaker’S Statement: Environment and Climate Change (1 May 2019)

Greg Clark: ...and to create a circular economy. Through the environment Bill, the Agriculture Bill, the industrial strategy and our clean growth strategy, we will do precisely that. I hope we can maintain this common purpose. The hon. Member for Salford and Eccles set out her party’s position. There is not one person who joins my party who is not concerned about the heritage of our planet....

Climate Change (Net Zero Uk Carbon Account) (30 Apr 2019)

Alex Chalk: ...leadership—nor will this be easy, but there is the great prize of a healthy planet, teeming with life and echoing to the sounds of rich and vibrant biodiversity; the prize of a society united in a common purpose of preserving our environment and holding back climate change; and the prize of an economy at the cutting edge of scientific and manufacturing technology. Let us go for net zero.

School Funding (25 Apr 2019)

Thelma Walker: ...communities. They are on the frontline every day. I know; I have been there. They support our youngest and most vulnerable. We need well trained, motivated and passionate teachers who believe in the common purpose of preparing children and young people for life and the love of lifelong learning. The gravity of the situation is only too clear to many of us here. For the first time,...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Marcus Jones: make sure that the different parts of the system work together. Public health must work with primary care, and our GPs must work well with our acute sector. We must all work together with one common purpose, which is to keep people out of hospital for longer. That is how to improve people’s quality of life and reduce the cost to the taxpayer. I wish to mention a small but important...

Scottish Parliament: The Open University at 50 (23 Apr 2019)

Richard Lochhead: ..., happiness and fulfilment of both the individual and wider society.

The commission on widening access was clear that all parts of the education system would have to work together to achieve the ambitious target...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent (10 Apr 2019)

Stuart Andrew: ...NATO also said: “These Allies’ separate centres of decision-making contribute to deterrence by complicating the calculations of potential adversaries.” We recognise the common threats and our common purpose in facing them down. It is ultimately by standing together that we strengthen our deterrence and shore up the rules-based international order. That is what underpins NATO’s...

Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Tim Loughton: ...the rebuff. Those Independent Group Members have a strong vested interest in continuing the chaos and debate on Brexit, because the minute it is resolved—and it will eventually be resolved—their common purpose is gone. They will have to come up with some non-Brexit policies that they can all agree on. Now I shall give way.

Rwandan Genocide: Alleged Perpetrators (9 Apr 2019)

Chris Elmore: ...will host the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. How can the UK Parliament, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and the UK Government sit with the Rwandans in Kigali talking about common purpose around security and safety, when it appears that we do not take their concerns and their need for reconciliation and justice seriously in the UK system?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...that I have already made. The Prime Minister has said that she wants an extension. She has asked—I think somewhat courageously—the leader of the Opposition to talk to see if they can find a common purpose, but we know that that has been received with a certain amount of cynicism on the Benches opposite. Most of them are not great fans of the leader of the Opposition, although today...

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (28 Mar 2019)

Lord Loomba: ...Forum issued an outcome statement outlining its achievements and the work that needs to be done to address some of the issues that are not always on the right side of our shared values and sense of common purpose.
