Airport Expansion ( 2 Mar 2020)

Robert Goodwill: Businesses in the north of England—in places such as Scarborough and, indeed, Middlesbrough—are keen to play their part in delivering a global trading Britain. However, they are frustrated by the absence of slots into our main hub airport and have to use Schiphol, Paris or other airports. How does it help achieve our greenhouse gas emissions targets or get the best result for UK plc if...

6. Debate: Draft Budget 2020-2021 ( 4 Feb 2020)

Rebecca Evans: That's no mean feat at all. You'll see £50 million of financial transactions capital in our housing loans programme, and that's about assisting registered social landlords with funding development plans for new social housing and helping to, crucially, start to decarbonise those existing homes, and £400,000 to provide advice on home energy and on tackling fuel poverty for...

Britain in the World (13 Jan 2020)

Andrew Bowie: ...with my hon. Friend’s words. I am sure that everybody in the House laments the passing of James Le Mesurier. He will be greatly missed not just for what he achieved in Syria, but for what he demonstrated to the rest of the world was possible through the work of the White Helmets in that area, and around the world. I am pleased that the Government have committed to spending the NATO...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Questions Without Notice from the Party Leaders (22 Oct 2019)

Mark Drakeford: Well, Llywydd, the degree of short sightedness expressed in that question is breathtaking, as well as the degree of ignorance about basic business models. You can't pay nurses out of capital loans, can you? The idea that you can is absurd. You clearly could not possibly do so. The money that we have provided to Cardiff Airport, if you totalled it all up, if you total every penny of it up, is...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading ( 5 Sep 2019)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: .... The scripts spoken to yesterday by a number of noble Lords contained the familiar argument, which the Prime Minister has been using extensively, that the legs would be knocked out from under his negotiating strategy if no deal was taken off the table. I have spoken on this before and I do not want to bore the House, but I believe that is completely untrue. Saying, “If you don’t give...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (2A) ( 4 Sep 2019)

Lord Marlesford: ...amendment says, it comes, “in recognition of the fact that the vote of 17.4 million people in the 2016 referendum to leave the European Union is no longer relevant and may be ignored or further deferred”. That is a very depressing situation for those people. They are not following the intricacies of what is happening in your Lordships’ House today. They will be as mystified as some...

D-day: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note ( 4 Jun 2019)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I declare an interest as a trustee of the Portsmouth D-day museum. I begin by thanking the British Legion for all the work it does with the surviving veterans of all our wars, and the War Graves Commission for its magnificent work maintaining the amazing cemeteries commemorating those who lost their lives on D-day and in all our recent wars. I have lived eight miles north of...

Burma (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve ( 1 May 2019)

Lord Chidgey: My Lords, I am delighted to thank the Minister for opening the debate and for giving me the opportunity to contribute and talk about Guinea-Bissau, which lies in an incredibly complex part of Africa, given its history and the influences placed on it, not just by western, European colonialists but by Asia, by religion and by their own ethnic empires in the region. It is a real melting pot. The...

No-Deal EU Exit Preparations (20 Mar 2019)

Joanna Cherry: If Macron, like de Gaulle before him, says “Non” to the Prime Minister’s request for an extension, we will not get one, because there must be unanimity. Does the Minister agree that in those circumstances—as a matter of fact—the only way to avoid no deal would be to revoke article 50, which the House could do, because, contrary to what the Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the...

Health and Social Care Committee: Carrier Strike Strategy (28 Feb 2019)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: .... Member for Stoke-on-Trent North for her extraordinary resilience; all of us who believe in what this House stands for would do so. If every member of our armed forces were as resilient, tough and determined—not to mention charming—as she is, we would be able to take on the world without any trouble at all. However, let me return to the matter at hand and speak about a ship that I am...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: France: Military Alliances (15 Feb 2019)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 29 January 2019 to Question 212337, when his Department plans to nominate the Type 45 Destroyer which will escort the French Aircraft Carrier, Charles De Gaulle when it departs for its operational cruise of the Indian and Pacific oceans.

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Baroness Deech: ...the rejection of migrant quotas across the Union, the building of fences between countries to keep out migrants and, above all, Mr Tusk’s Poland, which is breaking the rules on the environment, independence of the judiciary, independence of the press and without any sanction from the EU because Hungary is backing up Poland. The exchange of correspondence between the Prime Minister and Mr...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: France: Military Alliances (29 Jan 2019)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, which Royal Navy ship will be escorting the French aircraft carrier, Charles de Gaulle, when it departs for its operational cruise of the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Sir David Amess: I very much agree with colleagues who have made remarks about the tone of the national debate. I was stalked by a woman of mature years in the last general election and it got so bad that it was only through police intervention that my campaign, such as it was, was not totally derailed. She did not like my views, which the House is about to hear. When the result of the referendum was...

Operation of Air Services (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (18 Dec 2018)

Lord Adonis: I entirely agree with my noble friend and with the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, who rightly said that issues of first-order public policy were being raised in regulations. At the moment, whether they come before the House is almost entirely random. I also say in passing that there is a growing sense of frustration about this. The House is about to go into Recess in what is—let us be...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] ( 6 Dec 2018)

Hugo Swire: No one ever said it was going to be easy. I never shared the lofty visions of the founding fathers of the EEC, the EC and the EU—Schuman, Adenauer, Monnet and others—but I totally understand where they were coming from in post- war, post-consensus Europe and what they were trying to achieve. I never shared the vision of wanting an ever closer set of federal European states or a European...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) ( 6 Dec 2018)

Lord James of Blackheath: My Lords, I start with an expression of regret at the circumstances of this debate. It is very unfortunate that we appear to have left it to the Commons—alone, in isolation and unaided—and I am not sure that I have that degree of trust in it to pass on its own an independent conclusion that does not attempt to foreshadow what we have said here. I have carefully monitored the opinions of ...

Free Schools and Academies in England — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2018)

Greg Hands: That is helpful advice—it has been a little while since I have done one of these debates. However, as the time is available, I might say a few things. This has been an excellent debate. I am delighted that the academies and free schools programmes are thriving and making such a difference to school standards across the country. As the Opposition spokesman pointed out, I had the pleasure and...

Armistice Day: Centenary - Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 5 Nov 2018)

Lord Balfe: My Lords, I add my thanks to my noble friend Lord Ashton for his introduction to this most important debate. I declare an interest as someone who has lectured in European history—and by that I mean the history of Europe, not the history of Britain as part of it. Many of us in this House are of an age where what happened in the First World War is much closer to our family history than it is...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Lord Balfe: My Lords, I begin by quoting one of the greater Prime Ministers of this country, Clement Attlee. In the late 1940s, the UK drew up the constitution of what became the Federal Republic of Germany. Attlee had to decide whether there should be provision for referenda in the constitution of the federal republic. His reaction was that referenda are the tools of despots, demagogues and dictators...
