Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Luke Graham: I do agree. As I have mentioned, a hallmark of the CBO is the high standard of staff it employs. That is based on their expertise and ensuring that the right people are hired for the right role and that training is maintained in the office as well, so that expertise is not lost with standard staff turnover. The CBO maintains its objectivity through a rigorous system of checks and balances....

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service (Waiting Times) (9 May 2018)

Michelle Ballantyne: Waiting times is not a new issue for debate. Back in 2006, Audit Scotland reported that the NHS in Scotland had made significant progress in reducing waiting times.

Evidence suggested then that short-term increases...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Office for Budget Responsibility (9 Oct 2017)

Stephen Barclay: The Office for Budget Responsibility’s (OBR) remit is set out in the Budget Responsibility and National Audit Act 2011 which prevents it from assessing alternatives to stated government policy.

Technical and Further Education Bill - Second Reading (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: My Lords, it is a pleasure to welcome back the noble Lord, Lord Nash. We have missed his wit, his repartee and his general joie de vivre during the long hours that we have spent on the Higher Education and Research Bill. However, perhaps we should acknowledge his skills at delegation, because he has certainly dodged a bullet with that monster of a Bill and its 500-plus amendments. I also...

Ian Blackford: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson). He has been a loyal supporter of the Government from the Back Benches during the past few months, and it sounds very much as though he is putting in a job application to the Prime Minister as much as to anyone else—[Interruption.] Well, you never know. Another breach of the cap calls into question what its...
