Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Stella Creasy: ...(Mr Lammy), sadly no longer in his place, put it well: how will EU students respond? Will we see a rush of English students to Scottish universities? Will EU students get loans? Furthermore, what will happen to science funding? While sitting here today, I have sadly missed a session of the Science and Technology Committee. We recently went on a wonderful visit to Manchester to look at the...

Defence: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: ...in relation to the special characteristic of nuclear weapons in the context of the Cold War. With much spiritual fear and moral trembling, I argued that a policy of deterrence was compatible with Christian conscience. But hearing the noble Lord, Lord Robertson, refer to nuclear weapons as a political weapon, I have to remind myself that he knows much better than I do that they remain...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...was also inspired by Europe’s founding fathers: Adenauer, Schuman, Monnet and de Gasperi, who were shaped by their own harrowing wartime experiences at the hands of Nazism and fascism. They were Christian humanists who believed in subsidiarity, solidarity, the promotion of the common good, social justice and reconciliation. It was for those reasons that in 1975, as a young local...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

the Bishop of Chelmsford: ...where I serve as a bishop—one of the most multicultural and multifaith places in the whole of Europe. Having returned yesterday from the 16th meeting of the worldwide Anglican Consultative Council in Lusaka, where we discussed with Christians from all around the world what it means to be Christian in a world of great diversity and difference, we should also remember that multifaith...

Backbench Business — Court Closures: Easter Adjournment (24 Mar 2016)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...those around the world—from Belgium to Turkey, from Syria to Jordan and Iraq, and in so many other places—who are suffering from mankind’s capacity for evil. At the same time, I believe, as a Christian, that evil will not triumph, as a result of the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday. Earlier this month, colleagues on the Select Committee on International Development...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Nia Griffith: ...Clwyd West (Mr Jones) emphasised the importance of transport links to the economy of north Wales. That theme was taken up by many hon. Members, including my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) who suggested the need to upgrade the busy M6, and to think beyond Crewe for HS2 so that it serves Chester and north Wales. Along with other Members he stressed the...

Scottish Parliament: Work, Wages and Wellbeing (1 Mar 2016)

Gavin Brown: In all honesty, I genuinely do not understand the point that Christian Allard is making. I point out a host of areas in which successive UK Governments of different political stripes have pushed hard to bring in high-quality jobs, whether through inward investment or through what they have done for science, engineering or medicine. Governments of all shapes and sizes want to bring in the best...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Out-of-school Education Settings (20 Jan 2016)

Carol Monaghan: ...about how we perceive teachers and what they do. People often think that teachers in particular settings are taking part in indoctrination or putting forward one view. Teachers in Catholic or other Christian schools do not simply teach one view—they teach different views. Let me give an example from my experience. I was a science teacher. When we looked at the energy debate, we would...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (3 Dec 2015)

Tavish Scott: That was a tour de force—I can only congratulate Rob Gibson on getting through his speech, and Christian Allard on his timely intervention, although I thought that it was a bit short by his standards; he could have kept it going for a minute or two longer. I will pick up one of Rob Gibson’s points, because it also referred to Claudia Beamish’s interesting observations about...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Shared and Integrated Education: Committee Report (8 Sep 2015)

SeŠn Rogers: ...there are issues with the Key Stage 2/Key Stage 3 assessment in their school? Shared and integrated education should not be limited to Catholics and Protestants; it should include children of non-Christian religions and no religion and children of different socio-economic backgrounds and of different races. Giving children the opportunity to interact with children beyond their immediate...

Isil: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (13 Jul 2015)

Fiona Bruce: ...out-of-work benefits for a similar period has fallen by 61%. Investment in the economy of the area has been unprecedented. An investment of millions of pounds has been made in Jodrell Bank as part of the science corridor across Cheshire, and no less than £46 million has been committed by the Government to the Congleton link road. I trust that the Minister will join me in recognising...

Scottish Parliament: North-east Mosses (5 May 2015)

Rob Gibson: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate and I congratulate Christian Allard on securing it. We are a Parliament that takes our peat bogs and mosses seriously—in the words of Robert Burns, “The mosses, waters, slaps, and styles”. People have passed over our peat bogs and mosses and, historically, have perhaps avoided some of them because they can be rather treacherous....

Scottish Parliament: Culture, Visitor Attractions and Events (Contribution to Economy and Society) (21 Apr 2015)

Fiona Hyslop: ..., it has had a transformative and quite profound impact in providing social regeneration. That is why we have helped El Sistema to look at developing the big noise project in other areas—for example, we have supported it in Govanhill, and Christian Allard told us about the ambitions for big noise Torry, which is due to be launched formally at the end of June. Much of the debate has...

Business of the House: Education Regulations and Faith Schools (12 Mar 2015)

David Laws: ...for the faith and values of the school, there are key statutory requirements that state-funded schools must nevertheless comply with, including ensuring that the theory of evolution is taught in science, although faith schools can and do teach that it is a theory that their religion does not believe in; the provision of sex and relationship education; and the teaching of pupils about other...

Scottish Parliament: STEM Education in Scottish Schools (25 Feb 2015)

Christian Allard: I welcome this Conservative debate on education. I note that the Institute of Physics in Scotland has said that we should do more to encourage female science graduates, and I think that we are doing just that. Not only the Scottish Government but all of us in this Parliament, across the political parties, have done a lot to address gender and science, technology, engineering and mathematics...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Mitochondrial Donation) Regulations 2015 — Motion to Approve (24 Feb 2015)

Earl Howe: ...showed a considerable level of public acceptability for both techniques. My noble friend also referred to the ComRes poll and suggested that we had somehow unfairly dismissed it. The ComRes poll was commissioned by the CARE organisation—Christian Action Research and Education—which I understand opposes the introduction of mitochondrial donation. An evaluation of the survey was...

Warwick (1,100TH Anniversary) (17 Dec 2014)

Ed Vaizey: ...of Wales visited Warwick to recognise the importance of the anniversary. I pay tribute to the extraordinary work he has done over so many years to support not only our heritage, but our modern economy. I was with him yesterday at the science museum, where we were celebrating engineering, and particularly the role of women in engineering. My hon. Friend pointed to numerous ornaments in...

Religion and Belief: British Public Life — Motion to Take Note (27 Nov 2014)

Lord Warner: ...Trojan horse whistleblower at Park View School in Birmingham, from a former Haredi Jew who grew up and was educated in Stamford Hill in Hackney, and from a young man who attended an Accelerated Christian Education school and is now doing a PhD studying experiences of ACE schools. I have to tell your Lordships that “ace” is a bit misleading as a description of those schools. The...

Written Ministerial Statements — Education: Religious Studies (GCSEs and A-Levels) (7 Nov 2014)

Nick Gibb: ...April this year, the Government announced that GCSEs and A-levels in religious studies, design and technology, drama, dance, music and physical education––and GCSEs in art and design, computer science and citizenship––would be reformed for first teaching in September 2016. The Department has already consulted on proposed subject content for art and design, computer...

Scottish Parliament: Education (29 Oct 2014)

Kenneth Macintosh: ...teachers and the fairness of our school system, the most accurate predictor of, or rather the key determinant in, a child’s academic success is their socioeconomic background, a point just made by Christian Allard, as well as by several other members. To put that another way, a more tabloid report that I heard last month said that the chance of a child going to university is directly...
