Armed Forces: Reserves - Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2018)

Baroness Goldie: I noted the noble Lord’s reference to the letter, and I was going to deal with that later on. However, I can deal with it specifically now. There was a delay, for which the department clearly apologises. I understand that at the time the report was laid before the House, a Written Ministerial Statement and a short response were issued; only the longer response was delayed. None the...

Business of the House: Court Closures: Calderdale (21 Jun 2018)

Lucy Frazer: Before I turn to the particular instances that affect the hon. Lady’s Halifax constituency, it is important to make a number of broad points about access to justice and the courts estate. In every sector, digitalisation is improving access to services, including to public services. Technology has reformed the way that we live our lives and made many processes more efficient. In such...

Erasmus Plus Programme (21 Jun 2018)

Gordon Marsden: That is a very good point, although it might be better directed at the Minister rather than the shadow Minister. I agree that we need a rigorous debate on the subject. As my hon. Friend pointed out, it was not until November, in a letter to my hon. Friends the Members for City of Durham (Dr Blackman-Woods) and for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield), that the Government made a commitment to...

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Caroline Nokes: I think it might have been the second time it had cropped up for me this afternoon. However, some important points have been made, and I thank him and my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Neil O'Brien) for their poetic contributions, which brought some real thoughtfulness and passion to the issue. A number of Members raised the issue of the scheduling of parliamentary business, which is...

EU Settlement Scheme (21 Jun 2018)

Caroline Nokes: My right hon. Friend makes an important point about criminal record checks, and all applicants aged 10 or over will be checked against the UK’s national police database and watch lists. Applicants over 18 will be asked about their criminal history in the UK, and indeed overseas. My right hon. Friend has raised a significant point: this is an important, clear offer to EU citizens, which...

Universal Credit and Welfare Changes (21 Jun 2018)

Esther McVey: First off, this was the earliest time that I could come to the House to make an oral statement. I sought to make a statement as soon as possible, which is why I am here today. Obviously, everyone will know what has been happening this week in the House. On the legal changes that I have made, let me say that I took them from day one. I took them immediately. No one was forced to do that; I...

Scottish Parliament: National Testing (Five-year-olds) (21 Jun 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: First, the assessments are not high-stakes assessments; there is no pass or fail associated with them. The results are there to help teachers plan for children’s progress and to inform teacher judgment about achievement against curriculum for excellence levels. Children’s and young people’s interests are very much at the heart of the assessments. Primary 1 assessments are...

The Scotland Act 2012, the Scotland Act 2016 and the fiscal framework have fundamentally changed the sources of funding that underpin our...

Scottish Parliament: World Refugee Day (21 Jun 2018)

Angela Constance: Yesterday was world refugee day—a day when people around the world gather to acknowledge and pay tribute to all those who have been forced to flee their homes. It is an opportunity for us all to remember the plight of refugees and people who are seeking asylum, and to show them our solidarity, support and understanding. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of hosting a round-table discussion...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Amendments (20 Jun 2018)

Lord Adonis: My Lords, I second what the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, has said. I do not think the mood of the House has been at its best this evening. After the courageous speech of the noble Viscount, Lord Hailsham, on Monday, many of us were extremely disappointed that the other House did not assert the democratic power of Parliament and support the amendment of the noble Viscount and Mr Dominic Grieve. I...

Petition - Charlton Boulevard: UK Development Bank (20 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: I start by declaring my interest as chair of the international Parliamentary Network on the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. In this debate I will put forward the strong case for the United Kingdom to establishment a development bank. I believe it is needed now more than ever, and for two particular reasons. As we leave the European Union we will also leave the European Investment...

Branded Health Service Medicines (Costs) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (20 Jun 2018)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: My Lords, I begin by thanking the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, for tabling the Motion on this topic, and I thank all noble Lords who have contributed for their, as ever, wise and incisive interventions. As we have discussed this evening, there are two separate but intertwined issues here. The first is the appropriate treatment and associated clinical guidance from NHS England to CCGs...

Lady talked about the insecure employment of between 1 million and 3...
