Schools (Mental Health Professionals) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 1 Mar 2024)

Earl Russell: ...next Wednesday brings some extra much-needed money to this important issue. The Bill, put simply, is about plugging a service-level gap, the physical health equivalent of which would be only doing blood pressure checks and urgent cancer operations but not providing any other healthcare in between.

Windrush - Motion to Take Note (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: ...said, “Let’s be fixers. Let’s just get it done”. The noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, spoke about the other scandals dealt with in the Victims and Prisoners Bill: the Horizon scandal, infected blood and Windrush.

Ukraine (28 Feb 2024)

Stewart McDonald: ...try to ride two horses at once on this conflict. I am probably one of the few Members of Parliament who have been to Avdiivka, Kramatorsk and Slovyansk, going back over six years. That long line of blood in the loss of Avdiivka two weeks ago can be drawn back to two things: first, weapons being held up vis-à-vis what is going on in Washington in Congress; and secondly—this is another...

Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Feb 2024)

Keir Starmer: ...church. I welcome lots of people who want to subscribe to our ideals, to our values.” That is the same Nigel Farage who said he agreed with the basic premise of Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of blood” speech and bemoaned the influence of the Jewish lobby.

Tackling Obesity — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (27 Feb 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: ...to nearly one in five by the time they leave. Growing numbers of children with excess weight are, as hon. Members have said, developing health conditions once rarely seen in childhood such as high blood pressure. Every child needs an environment that helps them to thrive and reach their full potential.
