Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...right hon. Gentleman and I opposed during the years of the Blair-Brown Government. One example is when they tried to extend detention without charge to 90 days. I remember also the passage of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill. He and I and others described them then as constitutional outrages—it was a “power grab” and an “affront to democracy”. I may even on occasion...

Strathclyde Review — Motion to Take Note (13 Jan 2016)

Lord Tyler: ...Parliament is usually only about fitness for purpose; (c) A rejected order can be re-laid; (d) The power to reject supports the work of the SI Merits Committee; (e) Power to reject orders under the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill will be even more important than power to reject mainstream SIs”.

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill: Committee (3rd Day)(Continued) (23 Oct 2013)

Lord Brennan: the past couple of weeks. As far as I know, it has not been considered either by the Delegated Powers Committee or by the Constitutional Affairs Committee. This is important because in 2006 the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill contained a Henry VIII clause, which was withdrawn by the then Government after a critique by the Constitutional Affairs Committee. I invite the...

On 16 May 2006, I proposed an amendment to the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill that, notwithstanding the European Communities Act 1972, would have enabled us to override European legislation where necessary. Some 50 current Government...

Business of the House: United Kingdom Parliamentary Sovereignty Bill (18 Mar 2011)

Bill Cash: adopt the policy that I am proposing, and have been proposing for many years. As I said before the interruption for the Prime Minister’s statement, that policy was formally agreed by us in the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill in 2006 when we were in opposition.

United Kingdom Parliamentary Sovereignty Bill (18 Mar 2011)

Bill Cash: ...of unfortunate consequences. The same could be said of other matters such as the over-regulation of business.

Food Labelling Regulations (Amendment): Clause 18 — Status of EU law dependent on continuing statutory basis (11 Jan 2011)

Bill Cash: ...Bills, and which has also been provided by the Bills that have followed from colleagues over the past few years. I have to say, however, that my sovereignty proposals of 2006 in relation to the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill were accepted by the current Prime Minister when he was Leader of the Opposition and by the party Whips. Indeed, I might add that the Minister for Europe voted...

Safe Standing (Football Stadia): European Union Bill (7 Dec 2010)

Bill Cash: ..." formula. Our report, based on clear evidence from constitutional experts, upholds both the principle and the wording of the "notwithstanding" formula, which I proposed in amendments to the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill when we were in opposition. The Whips even asked me to put in their own tellers. As I said to the Minister for Europe last night, he too voted for those...

Public Bodies Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 Nov 2010)

Lord Soley: ...all right. Paragraph 42 is the key bit. It also refers to the 2006 Act. I shall quote the whole passage, which is fairly long, so I hope the Committee will bear with me: "During the passage of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill the government made a commitment"- I stress "a commitment"- "that they would not use the process for highly controversial measures, and would not force...

Public Bodies Bill [HL]: Second Reading (9 Nov 2010)

Lord Norton of Louth: ...may be a case for that, but it should not come under the rubric of a safeguard. Various safeguards included in the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act are omitted. Given the debates we had on the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill and before that on the Regulatory Reform Bill, it is remarkable that the Government have sought to rely solely on the affirmative resolution procedure....

Scottish Parliament: Public Services Reform (Scotland) Bill (25 Mar 2010)

Jeremy Purvis: The Government has indicated that the bill is similar to the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill that the UK Parliament has passed. It is worth reflecting on the fact that the official Opposition at Westminster, far from underhyping the UK bill, did a fair share of hyping it by claiming that key elements of it were the "abolition of Parliament bill". I hear Mr Brownlee say from a sedentary...

Sovereignty of Parliament (13 Jan 2010)

Bill Cash: ...move my amendment. On three more recent occasions, however, not only have the House authorities, with advice, facilitated the moving of my supremacy of Parliament amendments-in relation to the then Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill in 2006 and, shortly afterwards, the Constitutional Reform Bill and other constitutional matters-but on those occasions my right hon. Friend the Member for...

Financial Crisis (20 Jan 2009)

Bill Cash: ...-regulation inflicted on our businesses can be achieved only by applying the rule of the supremacy of Parliament, an amendment on which the Conservative party supported me during the passage of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill, both in the Commons and the Lords. That requires the judiciary to endorse the decisions taken in this House and not at the European level, otherwise we...

Bill Cash: ...immediately after Second Reading in this House of the Bill to which he has just referred because of this huge hole.

Orders of the Day: Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Bill [ Lords] (21 May 2008)

Bill Cash: In the discussions on the Lisbon treaty and the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill, which became a 2006 Act, proposals in my name were put forward that asserted the supremacy of Parliament so that, beyond gold-plating, we could ensure that the legislation was consistent with the will of Parliament and the people of this country. Conservative Front Benchers have said that we need...

Business of the House (27 Mar 2008)

Mark Harper: Is the Leader of the House aware that in the draft Constitutional Renewal Bill, part 6—the ominously named "Final Provision"—resurrects a clause that was in the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill to give Ministers the power to revoke Acts of Parliament by order? One of the well-known political websites says that, like a vampire, the "Destroy Parliament" clause has returned. Will she...

Scottish Parliament: Housing and Regeneration Bill (19 Mar 2008)

Stewart Maxwell: ...her opening remarks that the SNP has always opposed LCMs or Sewel motions. I will give her a short list of cases in which that was not true, although it does not cover them all—the motions on the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill, the Police and Justice Bill, the Housing Corporation (Delegation) etc Bill, the Compensation Bill and the Serious Crime Bill. The SNP takes a pragmatic...
