Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2022)

Christian Wakeford: increase to £2,800 in the autumn, more than double last year’s cap. I know the Prime Minister has been busy drafting and redrafting his half-arsed apologies rather than helping the people of Bury South, but at which work event—At which work event did he realise Labour’s call was the right thing to do; considering he and his party voted against it last week? Is it just to save his...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill (24 May 2022)

Claire Hanna: to pursue prosecutions. Members have glibly referenced accusations not being proven in court, but it will not be possible to prove them in court if the Bill becomes law. Members also mentioned South Africa, but this is so far removed from what happened in South Africa, where victims provided impact statements and could be present, along with their lawyers who could cross-examine...

There is a genuine opportunity to use that White Paper to draw a number of these elements together. I...

Football Governance (25 Apr 2022)

Jeff Smith: responses to a survey, and supported by an expert advisory panel from the world of football. As the Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the hon. Member for Croydon South (Chris Philp), rightly said when doing the media rounds this morning, “there has been huge input from fans up and down the country”. Eleven years after the Culture, Media and Sport...

Global Migration Challenge (19 Apr 2022)

P&O Ferries and Employment Rights (21 Mar 2022)

Laura Farris: ..., the reason we do not want to legislate to ban fire and rehire is that we would end up with more dismissals from the decent employer who is under extreme financial stress. As the hon. Member for Bury South (Christian Wakeford) said during that debate, fire and rehire must be “an absolute last resort”, and Conservative Members have always agreed with that proposition. We feared that...

Irish Diaspora in Britain (17 Mar 2022)

Conor McGinn: Britain. I use the term “Irish-born” specifically because, of course, many more people here have Irish parents and even more have Irish grandparents, as was mentioned by the hon.

Judicial Review and Courts Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 47 (24 Feb 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: make two points right at the start. First, we have now heard about two colliery disasters. The Gresford disaster was something that my late grandfather used to talk about, although he was from south Wales and not north Wales. As a boy, and I have just been looking it up, one thing that stuck with me when he talked about it was the numbers: 266 people were killed in that disaster. Only...

Levelling Up - Statement (7 Feb 2022)

...scarring and stagnation elsewhere, and that must change. We need to tackle and reverse the inequality that is limiting so many horizons and that also harms our economy. The gap between much of the south-east and the rest of the country in productivity, in health outcomes, in wages, in school results and in job opportunities must be closed. This is not about slowing down London or the...

Glue Traps (Offences) Bill: Clause 1 - Offences relating to glue traps in England (4 Feb 2022)

Ruth Jones: support of this Bill on Third Reading. I should say that it is good to see the Minister in her place. I feel as if I have seen more this week of her, her fellow Minister the hon. Member for Bury St Edmunds (Jo Churchill) and the hon. Member for North Devon (Selaine Saxby) than I have of my husband, my children and my cat. I suspect the same goes for the Minister, too. I congratulate...
