Judicial Review and Courts Bill - Report: Amendment 29 (31 Mar 2022)

...section 40(2) of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 or section 42 of the Judicature (Northern Ireland) Act 1978, or(d) under section 13 of the Administration of Justice Act 1960 (appeal in cases of contempt of court), other than an appeal from an order or decision made in the exercise of jurisdiction to punish for criminal contempt of court.(12) An order under this section may not be made...

Points of Order (31 Mar 2022)

Rachel Hopkins: ...of this House, so can you confirm from the Chair, Madam Deputy Speaker, that, contrary to the Minister’s suggestion, a motion on a Humble Address is binding and that the Government would be in contempt of this House to refuse to comply with the motion?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A (31 Mar 2022)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...not to let badly written Bills through. They lay themselves open to court cases and all sorts of potential miscarriages of justice. I personally think that the Government are holding this House in contempt, and that is why they produce so many badly written Bills. Because they have a huge majority in the other place, they can afford not to care about how the Bills are written or about...

National Insurance Contributions (Increase of Thresholds) Bill - Second Reading (30 Mar 2022)

Lord Davies of Brixton: ...more than 70 years is testimony to the strength of the idea. The Government’s proposals here and in the Statement ride roughshod over this concept and treat the idea of national insurance with contempt, making changes to national insurance contributions as a short-term political fix. The impact of the Bill’s proposals on personal taxation must be judged in the context of the overall...

P&O Ferries (30 Mar 2022)

Louise Haigh: ...Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement, and for the briefing he gave me on these measures last week. I know the whole House agrees that the action taken by P&O Ferries was beneath contempt. A sense of fair play and decency runs deep in this country—it is part of who we are—so the sight of a rogue employer who has made a mockery of the rule of law, trashed the reputation...

P&O Ferries (28 Mar 2022)

Karl Turner: We know that the unions met P&O Ferries on Friday—unsurprisingly, perhaps, the company was treating those unions with utter and complete contempt. I think the reason is this: the penny has not yet dropped for P&O Ferries that, very soon, legislation will come into force that will remove the incentive to exploit foreign agency workers at the expense of British seafarers. Will the Minister...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 139 (23 Mar 2022)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...is in exactly the same position as a person serving a life sentence for rape or murder. Of course, unconvicted prisoners, convicted prisoners awaiting sentence and people imprisoned for either contempt of court or debt, remain eligible to vote. Your Lordships will remember that the first case in the European Court of Human Rights in 2001 was the case that made Mr David Cameron sick. In...

Scottish Parliament: Ferry Staff (Job Losses at Cairnryan) (22 Mar 2022)

Colin Smyth: ...with the local community and trade unions from across Scotland, I will protest outside P&O Ferries in Cairnryan, standing shoulder to shoulder with those workers, who have been treated with such contempt by P&O. I urge colleagues to join the workers, if they can, in Cairnryan at 12 o’clock to fight any job cuts but also to send a clear signal that we need to end fire and rehire once and...

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

Richard Burgon: Like so many in my community, in this House and across the country, I am sick to the back teeth of working-class people in our society being treated with contempt and like dirt. That was shown graphically, was it not, with balaclava-wearing, handcuff-trained security guards boarding ships to chuck workers off their ships? We have also had enough of the crocodile tears and manufactured anger...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: P&O Ferries Update (21 Mar 2022)

Caoimhe Archibald: I thank the Minister for his statement. It is important that there is strong and unanimous condemnation of P&O's scandalous actions. P&O showed utter contempt for its workers, workers' rights and employment procedures. I am sure that the Minister will agree that it would set a very dangerous precedent if that were to go unchallenged. Strong words are one thing, but we need action. I have...

P&O Ferries (17 Mar 2022)

Louise Haigh: ...trained security staff, some wearing balaclavas, marching British crew off their ships. This is not a corporate restructure and it is not the way we go about business in this country. It is beneath contempt: the action of thugs. It is quite simply a scandal that this Dubai-owned company, which received millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money during the pandemic has, without consultation...

Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 184ZBA (16 Mar 2022)

Lord Blencathra: ...would be arrested if they did that outside. Therefore, while we should have the utmost respect for women, men, and men who have genuinely made the change to become women, we should have nothing but contempt for these fake trans women. We may not force a vote on this tonight, but a time is coming soon when we will, and Ministers had better choose the right side. Last week, the right...

Commonwealth Day — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (15 Mar 2022)

Jim Shannon: .... The despicable treatment of my country, Northern Ireland, as a political football has disabused me of that notion. Were we to treat one of the Commonwealth countries with such malice and contempt, the world would rightly call us out. Unfortunately, Northern Ireland’s treatment by Europe has been widely accepted and continues—but that is a discussion for another day as it is not the...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill: Clause 2 - Revival of prerogative powers to dissolve Parliament and to call a new Parliament (14 Mar 2022)

Gareth Bacon: ...hon. Members have said, we very much saw that in the “zombie” Parliament of 2017-19, when Parliament initially refused to allow an election to take place. The country became ungovernable, and contempt for Parliament rose dramatically—I speak as somebody who was outside Parliament at that time, and who shared in that contempt. I submit that that is not in anyone’s best interests. We...

Scottish Parliament: International Women’s Day 2022 (8 Mar 2022)

Gillian Martin: ...check my privilege and use it, because there are women in the world who are silenced and who, due to decisions that are taken and actions that are made by powerful men, are bearing the brunt of the contempt, dismissal, hatred and fear of the female that endangers their lives and erases them from their societies. What is happening to those women around the world is a problem for us all....

Delivery Charges: Scotland (7 Mar 2022)

Douglas Ross: ...in Moray and across many parts of Scotland are punitive and unfair and have been going on far too long. Businesses and couriers are treating my constituents and the people affected with utter contempt. It is completely wrong, and something must be done. To put into perspective how many people the issue affects, a Scottish Parliament briefing paper suggests that 440,000 people in Scotland...

Trade Union (Levy Payable to the Certification Officer) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (7 Mar 2022)

Lord Monks: ...always lose gracefully. These regulations and the Act which spawns them are unworthy of a great democracy. I take this opportunity before the regulations pass into law to register my disgust and contempt for them and their promoters.

Support for Ukraine and Countering Threats from Russia (2 Mar 2022)

James Heappey: ...see the good in that and communicate it strongly to those who do not have that luxury. In this debate today, we must also be clear on who our quarrel is with. When we talk of aggression, deceit and contempt for the international system, we must not talk about “Russia”; we must talk of Putin and the kleptocrats that surround him. When we talk of who must pay the price for this grotesque...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Internal Market (2 Mar 2022)

Angus Robertson: ...any way to the Conservative Government at Westminster. The fact that the United Kingdom Internal Market Act 2020 drives a coach and horses through the devolution settlement further demonstrates the contempt that Westminster has for those wishes. The committee’s report discusses trade links between Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom. Under any constitutional future, those links...
