Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill (25 Oct 2021)

Victoria Prentis: .... I am sure that we will continue to pass animal welfare legislation, but I would like to point out the significant steps that we are taking this evening. I hope that hon. Members will not take it amiss if I say that, in many ways, the most important speech was not made: the one by our hon. Friend who represented the city—[Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] —of Southend. I do not think...

Awarding of Qualifications: Role of Ministers (9 Sep 2020)

David Linden: ...that resignation. I look across the Chamber this afternoon, and I see no Scottish Conservatives here. That is why I deliberately started by saying that a bit of humility in this might not have gone amiss. What happened in Scotland should have been a red flag moment for the Conservatives, and it should have been a warning to the Secretary of State to act, but what happened next left many...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Examination of witnesses (23 Jun 2020)

Professor Pattie: Thank you for your words on Ron. Do not take it amiss, but I think both David and I would, in some respects, prefer it if Ron were here to talk to you in person. I mean that in the best of possible senses. Your question about bias is very interesting. Obviously, it has been the cause of some concern. There has been a particular party political concern about the extent to...

Inflation - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...annual price change in women’s clothing as measured by the RPI was a 2.5% decrease, but from 2010 to 2017, the average annual price change was an 11.1% increase. Something had clearly gone amiss. The ONS held up its hands and admitted that it had made an error. Witnesses were generally agreed that the interaction of the Carli formula with the new method of price collection was to blame...

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

David Linden: ...very much pay tribute to my hon. Friend. The hon. Member for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine (Andrew Bowie), who is no longer in his place, spoke of being led down a rabbit hole, but it would go amiss if I did not use this opportunity to reference my recent correspondence with the Government of the Republic of Tanzania, which I had the great privilege of visiting in September 2017. The...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Highland (Bullying) (27 Nov 2018)

Edward Mountain: ...been dealt with in September when I first called on the First Minister to hold an independent inquiry. I thank members from opposing parties who signed the motion that is in my name—particularly David Stewart, Rhoda Grant, Monica Lennon, Liam McArthur, Alex Cole-Hamilton and John Finnie. No Scottish National Party MSP supported it, but I am confident that SNP members believe, as I do,...

Scottish Parliament: Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 May 2017)

Monica Lennon: ...not fit for purpose. A lack of certainty in the law prevents the use of third-party rights, which leads to a lack of case law, thereby preventing the law from being developed. John Scott quoted David Christie of the Robert Gordon University, who eloquently described that scenario as a “death spiral”. The evidence overwhelmingly showed that the system needs an upgrade, and the bill...

Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Apr 2017)

Andy Burnham: ...it is a criminal act to test a child without a parent’s knowledge. Let me come on to the third case, which, in my view, is the most troubling of them all. It relates to a gentleman called Kenneth David Bullock—Ken Bullock. Ken was a very high-ranking civil engineer who worked around the world. In his later career, he spent time advising what was then called the Overseas Development...

Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Ratification of Convention) Bill: Short title, commencement and extent (24 Feb 2017)

David Nuttall: ...though they must have been ready, because they were tabled on 1 February, when the Bill had its Committee stage, and they were online the next day. That was the first indication that something was amiss. The series of Government amendments that have been accepted have had the effect of making the Bill very different from when it was introduced. The requirement for the UK to ratify the...

Digital Economy Bill (13 Sep 2016)

David Warburton: ...slow connection, too—and Somerset has had some appalling long-term outages recently. One village, West Pennard, had an outage lasting for many days, so a bit of recompense certainly would not go amiss. Facilitating full connectivity and properly connecting rural Britain is the beginning of the path towards creating a much more equitable national picture. Uniquely, the digital world has...

Procedure (Information Powers in Connection with Tax Advantages Constituting State Aid): finance (Money) (22 Mar 2016)

John Bercow: I am extremely grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for his point of order. I know, or at least I feel confident, that he will not take it amiss if I suggest, on the basis both of the content of his point of order and of the manner of its delivery, that he was more interested in what he had to say to me than in anything that I might have to say to him. What I would say to the right hon....

European Union Referendum (Date of Referendum etc.) Regulations 2016 — Motion to Approve (2 Mar 2016)

Baroness Ludford: ...and multiplying our ability to promote our interests. As my noble friend Lord Lee of Trafford said, leaving would take the great out of Britain. I want to pay special tribute to Europe Minister, David Lidington, who is something of an unsung hero of the renegotiation exercise. He is intelligent, diplomatic and knowledgeable, and his six-year longevity in the post—a poisoned chalice, some...

[Philip Davies in the Chair] — Small Businesses: Tax Reporting (25 Jan 2016)

David Morris: One thing that concerns me from what the hon. Gentleman is saying is that, if quarters are compared to relative years and HMRC thinks that something is amiss, it could enforce an investigation. Would the powers of investigation for HMRC be doubled overnight because it would have more of a dashboard—for want of a better word—on the computer to look between years and sectors and also types...

Scottish Parliament: Employment (30 Sep 2015)

Murdo Fraser: ...we ... risk a lost decade of slow growth and high unemployment which will do long-term damage.” None of that came to pass, of course. We also remember Labour’s favourite economist, Professor David Blanchflower, claiming that unemployment would go up to 5 million, with widespread social unrest. Both have been proven to be totally wrong. Perhaps an apology from Ms Baillie in her speech...

Debate on the Address: Home Affairs and Justice (28 May 2015)

Michael Gove: ..., may I acknowledge our gratitude to those Members who have departed this House? When we are considering home affairs issues, it is only fair to acknowledge that distinguished Home Secretaries like David Blunkett and Jack Straw are no longer in this House. Their contribution to our national debate on home affairs and justice matters has always been of the highest standard. Others who have...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — UK Acorn Finance (Mortgages) (11 Nov 2014)

Elfyn Llwyd: ..., although they have said to at least one Member of Parliament that they have done so. They have also tried to block Dyfed Powys police in Wales from investigating. I believe that something is amiss in Avon and Somerset police. As I have said, John Smith, the chief executive, is now writing to complainants and making decisions, but not mentioning the fact that he used to be a partner in...

Business of the House (10 Jul 2014)

Sir David Amess: ...fishermen are complaining about the loss of their catch. I recently waded into the Thames estuary—I cannot walk on water yet—and I saw Victorian cart tracks that have been exposed. Something is amiss with the Thames estuary.

Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill — Second Reading (17 Dec 2013)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...for a mere Minister in a department to mention taxation, which is a matter reserved for the Chancellor of the Exchequer. However, perhaps a hint about where we are on this might not go amiss. The noble Viscount, Lord Falkland, made the point that this shift to a point-of-consumption basis for operating the regulatory function parallels the change to a point-of-consumption taxation. At...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: 2012 Paralympic Games: Legacy (13 Nov 2012)

David Hilditch: ...scenario as local delivery units for leisure and sport.  Much work has been done by many councils that can be acknowledged and applauded, but a fresh overview in light of the motion would not go amiss.  Indeed, on the negative side, a council in my constituency has suddenly put pounds before provision.  It does not fully understand that leisure and sports facilities will never be...

Protection of Freedoms Bill (Programme) (No. 4): Clause 40 — Adding safeguards to powers of entry (19 Mar 2012)

David Hanson: ...the overall number. As we are already two years into the Government’s time in office and face the prospect of another two years before we hear back from the review, I do not believe I am far amiss in saying to the Minister and the hon. Member for Wycombe that the Government are potentially ducking the issue and leading the review into longer grass than we planned. I would like some...
