Questions to the Mayor of London — Pride month (2): Pride month (2) (30 Jul 2021)

Sadiq Khan: ...does occur, and ensuring victims receive the specialist support that will best meet their needs. However, as well as providing a robust response to hate crime, I believe it’s equally important to send a message to those who would seek to divide us, by celebrating the diversity in our great city. I’ve been proud to stand alongside London’s LGBT+ communities, hosting London’s Annual...

Nationality and Borders Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (19 Jul 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...and in so many other jobs in our society.

Beijing Winter Olympics and Chinese Government Sanctions (15 Jul 2021)

Alexander Stafford: the games. A possible option is one where Great Britain would still participate in Beiping and we would still cheer the team on to glory, but no state officials would attend. Our stance would send a message to both Peking and the wider international community that the UK unequivocally stands against the horrendous crimes occurring in Xinjiang and elsewhere and would ensure that Beijing...

Aquind Interconnector (13 Jul 2021)

Stephen Morgan: at large, we should not have to drag the truth out of Ministers kicking and screaming. As one constituent put it: “To proceed with this project in the face of overwhelming opposition would send a message that the interests of your rich Russian donors matter more than the people of Portsmouth and local democracy” On behalf of residents across Portsmouth, I want to place on the...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82 (28 Jun 2021)

the Earl of Caithness: ...was right: this is better done by negotiation. The Government will get defeated on Report on this, but it would be far better if we got an amendment that we could all sign up to, because that would send a message to everybody who will be affected by the Bill—which is the whole of the country—that there is unanimity in Parliament that that is the right way forward. At the moment, as I...

Sarah Jones: ..., I do not think that the public know about it or would be able to tell us that it was changed a few weeks ago, whereas making it clear that this is something we want to set out in law would send a message to all those people who do not report these crimes. It might help.

Catherine West: ...allow a couple of interventions. I thank hon. Members for taking part, and I want to put on record how deeply we care about the environment and our relationship with Brazil.

Environment Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 13 (23 Jun 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: ...out of vehicle windows. In the meantime, there is a role for consumers. Notwithstanding the comments that I made about producer responsibility, it is worth bearing in mind that we have an ability to send a message to producers. Companies selling tea bags that are plastic ought to feel the fury of the consumer. We should not be buying that stuff; I certainly do not buy tea bags made of...

Protecting Britain’s Steel Industry (21 Jun 2021)

Jim Shannon: ...any consideration been given to ensuring that every Government contract is carried out using only British-based steel? Not only would that secure local jobs for local people, but I believe it would send a message that has been lost in our search for a good deal.

Female Offender Strategy - Question (21 Jun 2021)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, the recent reports of women in prison, particularly in the last year, send a message of despair and cruelty, of which this country should be ashamed. For example, in women’s prisons there has been a big increase in self-harm during the pandemic. There is a marked difference between the sexes: 3,557 incidents for every 1,000 women prisoners in a 12-month period, compared with 595...

New Airedale Hospital: Covid-19 and Loneliness (15 Jun 2021)

Sir David Amess: ...with ourselves, the number of true friends that we have can be counted on our hands. I have given up, over the years, on knowing the number of Members of Parliament who are really lonely. I would send a message to our Whips saying, “You do need to look after your flock.” We never know how our colleagues are suffering. Although it is not always accepted, we are members of the human...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (15 Jun 2021)

Layla Moran: ...s poorest by cutting the aid budget. They said that they were planning to stay at home or vote Lib Dem for the very first time.

Carol Mochan: receive £15 an hour. In my own region, that would make a vast difference to the lives of many people. Let us achieve something meaningful straight out of the gate—right away—and let us send a message from this new Parliament. Let us pay back those people to whom we owe so much.

Environment Bill: New Clause 12 - Well consents for hydraulic fracturing: cessation of issue and termination (26 May 2021)

Ruth Jones: improve a weak Bill—a Bill that is lacking in ambition, in focus and in delivering a real and tangible plan to preserve our environment and protect our planet. I encourage the Minister to send a message to the Secretary of State—I wonder where he is today, because this is supposed to be his landmark Bill— and to the Government Whips and tell them that the time has come to get...

Environment Bill: New Clause 21 - Habitats Regulations: power to amend general duties (26 May 2021)

Kerry McCarthy: ...WWF research shows that 2 million hectares of forest and natural ecosystems could be legally deforested in the Brazilian territories that supply soya to the UK.

That is why I urge the Government to think again and to strengthen their proposals to include legal deforestation to show...

Belarus: Interception of Aircraft (24 May 2021)

Sammy Wilson: important that the Secretary of State take every action, with every possible body, whether it is the EU, the G7, financial institutions or private investors—anyone who can hurt this regime—to send a message to it, and to any who would seek to copy it, that this behaviour will not be tolerated and there will be financial, personal and political consequences.

Restoration and Renewal of the Palace of Westminster (20 May 2021)

Barry Sheerman: ...considerations based only on cost. Please let it be done on quality and, vitally, on sustainability and the environmental impact. Environmental audits will be crucial to this whole process. We could send a message, at a time when we face climate change and global warming, that we can do major construction sensitively, sustainably and in a way that employs great craftspeople and trains...

Israel and Gaza: Ceasefire (19 May 2021)

Theresa Villiers: Israel has the right to defend its citizens from terrorist attack, and I welcome the Minister’s strong confirmation of that this morning. Will he go further, however, and send a message about terrorism by proscribing the whole of Hamas as well as the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is making possible these horrific rocket attacks?
