Reconciliation: Role of British Foreign, Defence and International Development Policy - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...a huge impact far beyond his own borders, hitting particularly the ability of the world to reconcile itself with its different communities. The noble Lord, Lord Hannay, suggested today, as he did 18 months ago, that the response so far of countries such as ours, which has regarded the maintenance of a rules-based international order as its national interest, has been quite inadequate in...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution: East Midlands (14 Dec 2018)

Therese Coffey: ...November, we approved Nottingham’s plan to bring forward compliance with NO2 concentration limits and issued a Ministerial Direction requiring the council to implement the plan, accompanied by £1 million of funding from the Clean Air Fund. Nottingham City Council has received further funding from the Government to retrofit 171 buses and to convert its own fleet. Derby City Council and...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (14 Dec 2018)

Afzal Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the report, EU Settlement Scheme Private Beta 1, published on 31 October 2018, what assessment he has made of the reasons why 12 per cent of applications were waiting for a decision as at 30 October 2018; and what the average length of time has been to reach a decision in each of those cases.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Census (14 Dec 2018)

Lord Blunkett: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the next census, due in 2021, will include questions asking about respondents’ (1) main language, and (2) proficiency in English, as was the case in 2011; whether, when using census data to inform public policy, they consider a person’s main language to be the (a) first language learnt, or (b) language used most frequently; and what discussions they...

Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement - Statement (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...made earlier today in the other place by my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government on the provisional local government finance settlement 2019. “With permission, Mr Speaker, I wish to make a Statement on funding for local authorities in England next year. Every day, these councils and the many hard-working, dedicated people who work...

Police Funding Settlement - Statement (13 Dec 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...the other place by my right honourable friend the Policing Minister. The Statement is as follows: “Mr Speaker, I would like to propose to the House a provisional police funding settlement for 2019-20. I do so at a time of real pressure on our police system, with demand rising and becoming increasingly complex and response-intensive. Across the country, police officers and staff are...

Public Health Model to Reduce Youth Violence (13 Dec 2018)

Louise Haigh: ...with the “root causes” of violence. The £20 million a year to be spent on early intervention and prevention has to be seen in the context of the £387 million cut from youth services, the £1 billion taken from children’s services and the £2.7 billion taken from school budgets since 2015. As the Children’s Commissioner said in her excellent report on vulnerabilities: “We are...

New clause 20—English Fishing Opportunities— “(1) The English fishery shall vest in the Secretary of State and be held subject to the duties set out in this section. (2) The powers exercisable by the Secretary of State in the management of the English fishery shall not include the power to borrow money against the English fishery. (3) The Secretary of State, or the Marine Management...

Young People - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Chadlington: My Lords, I join others in thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong, for initiating this important debate. In the United Kingdom 90% of 16 to 24 year-olds own or have access to a smartphone and more than one-third spend more than 40 hours a week online. Teaching and learning moderation and constructive use of technology during formative years is essential for healthy young minds and...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

David Hanson: With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 19—Criteria for the allocation of fishing opportunities— “(1) When allocating the fishing opportunities available to the United Kingdom between the relevant national authorities, the Secretary of State shall use transparent and objective criteria including those of an environmental, social and economic nature, recognising the United...

Treasury Committee: Protection for Homebuyers (13 Dec 2018)

Heather Wheeler: ...and the Government intend to bring forward legislation to implement changes as soon as parliamentary time allows. We move on to another area in this vast debate, home buying and selling. Around 1 million homes are bought and sold in England each year, but another 25% to 33% of planned sales fall through, costing consumers around £270 million and creating stress for far too many people....

Disability-inclusive Development - Question for Short Debate (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Bates: .... The noble Lord, Lord McConnell, focused his contribution on the sustainable development goals and the need to make sure that, although there might be explicit references in only five of the 17 goals, there are, through No One Left Behind, implicit references in all of them. My noble friend Lord Holmes reminded us of that great parliamentary moment, which I think will go down in history,...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Duties relating to a determination of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

George Eustice: The purpose of clause 19 is to establish a requirement for the Secretary of State to consult the devolved Administrations. As other hon. Members have pointed out, this matter and the powers outlined in clause 18 are incontrovertibly a reserved UK matter. The amendment would undermine the power of the UK to determine UK resources for the purposes of international law, and relates directly to a...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Power of Secretary of State to determine fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

George Eustice: ...the negative resolution procedure rather than the affirmative resolution procedure. As I said earlier, the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee considered the Bill and said that of its 15 delegated powers that require a parliamentary procedure, only four are solely governed by the negative procedure, and justifiably so. I will explain to my hon. Friend the Member for Waveney...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Offences by bodies corporate etc (13 Dec 2018)

George Eustice: ...sets out the circumstances in which the officer of a body corporate, as well as the body corporate, may be found guilty of committing a relevant offence. These offences mirror those in section 12 of the Sea Fish (Conservation) Act 1967 and apply to all parts of the UK. Clause 15(1) provides that an officer of a body corporate, as well as a body corporate, may be guilty of an offence where...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Consequential amendments (13 Dec 2018)

George Eustice: I beg to move amendment 4, in clause 17, page 9, line 36, leave out from “contains” to end of line 36 and insert— “() in Part 1, consequential amendments relating to the provision made by sections 7 and 8; () in Part 2— (i) minor amendments relating to the licensing of fishing boats, and (ii) consequential amendments relating to the provision made by sections 9 to16; () in...

Constitutional Convention - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Grocott: My Lords, I am really grateful to my noble friend Lord Foulkes for his characteristically entertaining speech, though I did not particularly like his trip down memory lane to 1979, which, as he said, was one of the happiest days in his political life. It was one of the grimmest in mine, when the people of Lichfield and Tamworth decided that I should spend more time with my family. I echo...

Treasury Committee (13 Dec 2018)

Ian Murray: jobs in my constituency, and under all the models examined in the Treasury Committee’s report, the financial services industry shrinks, by anything between 9% and slightly less than 1%. That would have a disproportionate impact on Edinburgh, because of the way its financial services sector is set up. Was any modelling done on how many jobs would be lost and on what the...

Police Funding Settlement (13 Dec 2018)

Ellie Reeves: I have heard what the Minister has had to say about London, but the reality is that since 2010 the Met has faced cuts of £1 billion from central Government. The Government are to blame for the funding crisis in policing. Raising the council tax precept will mean that hard-working families will have to foot the bill and that police budgets will still be significantly underfunded compared with...
