Autumn Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Hunt: ...opposite: you cannot borrow your way to growth. Sound money is the rock upon which long-term prosperity rests; but it is not enough on its own. Our plan is designed to build a high-wage, high-skill economy that leads to long-term prosperity. In his Mais lecture, my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister identified the keys to doing that: people, capital and ideas. Today’s increase in the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Government Delivery (21 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: ...exit, we have been seizing the opportunities that come with this new freedom. We have signed three major new trade deals with Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, supporting food, drink and manufacturing exports as well as digital trade, and taking our total number of FTAs to over 70, with negotiations underway on many more. We have selected eight locations for freeports, with two already...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Trade: Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTTP): Update (21 Jul 2022)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: ...on developments in negotiations over the course of recent months. This bloc of 11 countries represents around £9 trillion in GDP and includes some of the world’s largest current and future economies. Joining CPTPP puts Britain at the heart of a dynamic group of countries, as the world economy increasingly centres on the Pacific region. And as these economies grow, it is even more...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (28 Jun 2022)

Rachael Maskell: ...addressing the inequalities and disparities across the country. Therefore, it is crucial that in clause 1 of the Bill we talk about what we are going to be focusing on. The National Health Service Act 1946—right up to the Lansley changes in 2012—talked about all the areas in which healthcare would be delivered. When that was taken out, we suddenly saw a postcode lottery. I certainly do...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 May 2022)

Lord Maude of Horsham: ...they were not terrible. Yet, in 2010, when the coalition Government were formed—the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, will remember this—we discovered a horrendous legacy of dreadful contracts that the Government had entered into right across the piece. Our task, which was to drive out cost from the overhead running costs of government, involved us renegotiating many of those...

The Politics of Polling (Liaison Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 May 2022)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...lightly in offering any opinion on the nature of the changes that it and the Market Research Society have made in response to the 2018 recommendations of your Lordships’ Political Polling and Digital Media Committee. Similarly, I do not intend to opine in detail on the progress which those organisations have made, in partnership with Impress and the National Council for the Training of...

Catapults (Science and Technology Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 May 2022)

Lord Mair: ...Committee report Catapults: Bridging the Gap between Research and Industry. This topic could not be more important at the present time: there is an increasingly vital need to stimulate the UK’s economy by driving innovation and investment by industry from our science and technology research. I thank the Minister for making time to respond to this debate. It was a privilege to have been a...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (17 May 2022)

Baroness Stedman-Scott: ...our post-18 education system promotes real social mobility, is financially sustainable and will support young people to get the skills they need to meet their career aspirations and help grow the economy. In addition, the Government are fulfilling our 2019 manifesto commitment by taking steps to strengthen academic freedom and free speech in universities in England. The Higher Education...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Gareth Thomas: ...the desperate circumstances of too many of my constituents because of the cost of living crisis, and particularly because of the huge hike in energy bills, which have gone up by at least 70% since 2010. Ministers have been complacent and too slow to act. The average household bill is now about £2,000 a year, and in October it could rise to almost £3,000. Everyone in the country is...

Penrose Review: UK Competition and Consumer Policy — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (8 Mar 2022)

Seema Malhotra: ...review and the Government’s consultation are a missed opportunity for a more fundamental review and reform of the UK marketplace. Even the CMA, which is now responsible for all anti-competitive practices that affect UK markets and consumers, has said that comments in the Government’s consultation on reforming competition and consumer policy amounted to “incremental, rather than...

Ultrafast Broadband: Devon and Somerset — [CHRISTINA REES in the Chair] (11 Jan 2022)

Chris Elmore: ...of their constituents with the delays in rural broadband roll-out. As I said to the Minister just last week, I want to be clear that as the newly appointed shadow Minister for media, data and digital infrastructure, I will do all I can to bring together Members from all parties in this place to help deliver the digital revolution our communities are crying out for. Simply put, we cannot...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel Four: Young People (13 Sep 2021)

John Whittingdale: Channel 4’s current remit and obligations are largely based on the key building blocks for public service broadcasting as set out in the 2003 Communications Act, with further changes made in the 2010 Digital Economy Act. The Government has made clear in the consultation that it intends to preserve Channel 4’s PSB remit. The consultation also makes clear that the Government sees the value...

Telecommunications (Security) Bill: New Clause 1 - OFCOM’s Annual Report (25 May 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...build out the networks—fixed wireless and mobile—that became the internet. I am proud of that work and of the immense contribution that the telecommunications sector makes to our society, our economy and our security. I am very pleased that today we are dedicating parliamentary time to our telecommunications sector. I thank all Members across the House who served on the Bill Committee...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (13 May 2021)

Lord True: ...lecture theatre. I was also amused that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, devoted two minutes and 28 seconds of his speech—on the basis of a rather questionable construal of the 1999 Act—to committing the Labour Party to an all-appointed House in perpetuity, as their future House of Lords. If that is the new Keir Starmer appeal to the nation, bring it on. We have had...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 6 - Charge and main rate for financial years 2022 and 2023 (19 Apr 2021)

Siobhain McDonagh: ...on the right to organise and collective bargaining, (ii) be certified or be in the process of being certified by the Living Wage Foundation as a living wage employer, and (iii) not be liable to the digital services tax”.

British Library Board (Power to Borrow) Bill - Second Reading (19 Mar 2021)

Baroness Barran: ...in this debate. As the noble Lord, Lord Bassam, just said, it is a short but important Bill that seeks to bring the British Library in line with its peers. As we have heard, the British Library Act 1972 created a vital new national institution—even if my noble friend Lord Hannan does not admire the architecture—but this same legislation is preventing the library from potentially...

Government's Management of the Economy (23 Feb 2021)

Steve Barclay: ...of the specifics of next week’s Budget, but I can say that although we may not always agree on the way ahead, I believe that we in this House all want the same outcome: a vibrant and prosperous economy that gives people everywhere the opportunities that they deserve. In responding to the motion, I intend to do three things. First, I shall briefly remind the House of the economic and...

Online Harms (19 Nov 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...the internet. I am proud of that work and of what it has become. As we have heard, we are increasingly living our lives online, and the ongoing pandemic has accelerated that. For those who are not digitally excluded, social media platforms such as Facebook, Google, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter are all now woven into the fabric of our lives and, together with the vast array of online apps...

Alok Sharma: I am today introducing the National Security and Investment Bill to update the Government’s investment screening powers and strike the right balance between maintaining an open economy and giving us the tools we need to intervene in cases of serious concern. I am also publishing the Government’s response to the public consultation on the “National Security and Investment” White Paper,...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (23 Jun 2020)

Bill Esterson: ...down in front of bulldozers these days—[Interruption.] I do not know whether the Minister will want to respond to that. The Library note also mentions the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010, or CRAG, provisions. The point about CRAG is that it does not require Parliament’s approval for the Government to ratify treaties. That is the point my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow...
