Covid-19: Recovery Strategies - Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2020)

Baroness Penn: ...protected by a wipe-down plastic box, is a sign of the small steps that we have been able to take to ease social distancing measures and begin the process of carefully reopening our country and our economy.

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (18 Mar 2020)

Lord Bruce of Bennachie: ...It appeared it was becoming received wisdom that last week’s Budget marked the end of austerity and, worse than that, or more than that, the confirmation of the assertion that austerity was never actually required. It is argued by some—the noble Lord, Lord Hain, is not in his place—that it was a right-wing ideological choice which caused unnecessary hardship. I assert that that is...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Seema Malhotra: ...cliff edge of Brexit are serious challenges, but so, too, are our public services. Commentators note that the NHS has 43,000 fewer nurses than it needs, that over 15,000 beds have been lost since 2010 and that the UK now has second lowest number of beds per capita in the G7.

Financial Statement (11 Mar 2020)

Rishi Sunak: ...party. We will do right by you and your family, and I know I will have the support of the whole House as I say that. This House has always stood ready to come together, put aside party politics and act in the national interest. We have done so before, and I know we will do so again. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, alongside officials and scientists, is leading the work on the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Baroness Thornton: ...Lords are most keen to see early progress; they have said so. I am not alone in feeling intensely disappointed about what happened with the implementation—or non-implementation—of Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act 2017. Those are the provisions which would have allowed this country to become the first in the democratic world to restrict access to online commercial pornographic sites by...

Adult Learning and Vocational Skills: Metropolitan Borough of Dudley (1 Oct 2019)

Gordon Marsden: ...the FE sector is the ability to put on courses that cut across the generations, and across other things too. That is a real issue. The hon. Lady rightly said that adult learners are down 40% since 2010 and that skills gaps and digital gaps remain, despite her work as a Minister and that of others. Those things will be critical in the 2020s. She is also right to mention underspending local...

Written Answers — Treasury: Companies (30 Sep 2019)

Jesse Norman: Since 2010 Companies House has provided an electronic feed of the publicly available information about accounts submitted to them. This information is used by HMRC to help monitor companies telling HMRC that they are dormant.

Scottish Parliament: Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 (Post-legislative Scrutiny Reports) (12 Sep 2019)

Liam Kerr: I understand the cabinet secretary’s points. Of course the 2012 act was about reducing duplication, and yes, there are national services. However, we need to remember that if we remove officers from the front line, that will have an impact because, at the end of the day, they are the first point of contact for many people. My point is that that is having a serious impact on the officers and...

Spending Round 2019 (4 Sep 2019)

Sajid Javid: ...described back then as Britain’s most dangerous street, but to us it was just home. After we left, my brother became a policeman and has been in the force for over 25 years. I have seen the impact the job has on the lives of those who are courageous enough to do it. So today I pay tribute to the bravery, courage and dedication of our hard-working police officers. As Home Secretary, I saw...

Older Persons: Provision of Public Services - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...provision of these services are coming. At the moment, the current charter arrangements say that the current licence will continue in its present form for the 11-year period. I do not know what exactly was said five or six Secretaries of State ago when this was agreed, but I know what was agreed and I will come on to that. I stress to the noble Lord, Lord Addington, that when we agreed the...

Theatre Market - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...tie of several colours in perhaps pale imitation. I declare an interest as I have a daughter who works for RADA Business, the growing commercial offshoot which passes profits back to help young actors. I am also a patron of Garsington Opera, which is one of the finest examples of excellence in the performing arts outside London—I am pleased to get in a plug for something I am very proud...

Free TV Licences: over-75S (11 Jun 2019)

Jeremy Wright: ...passion and his consistency. I accept that he has always argued that it was wrong to transfer the responsibility to the BBC, but the arguments he makes today were better suited to our debate on the Digital Economy Act 2017. Indeed, he made those arguments then—I accept that. However, the argument was had, a vote was conducted and a result was recorded. Consequently, the BBC has the...

TV Licences for over-75S (8 May 2019)

John Grogan: ...for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge). I remind him that the BBC still reaches over 92% of the population every week. It is a great pleasure to support the motion, which is made the stronger by the fact that it is supported by all the major Opposition parties. I want to put the motion in context. Democratic Unionist party Members talked about a lack of democracy. If we look back at how the...

Residential Construction and Housing Supply - Motion to Take Note (24 Apr 2019)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...my powers, but some of those matters are perhaps a bit more cosmic. I very much identify with the Greta Thunberg contribution; it is important that we listen to young people with that idealism and act accordingly. I was very pleased that Michael Gove responded very positively to what she said. If I may, I shall pick up some of those points later. I shall deal with the contributions in the...

Petition - Maintenance of Stroke Services at Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother Hospital Margate: Small Business Exports (20 Mar 2019)

Graham Stuart: ...Statistics show that 232,400 SMEs exported in 2017, which is an increase of 6.7% over the previous year. It is progress, but this represented just 9.8%—less than a tenth—of all SMEs. In fact, a DIT survey in 2017 found that 19% of all registered businesses—516,000—could be exporting, but are not. In other words, there are more companies who think that they could be exporting than...

Finance (No. 3) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (7 Feb 2019)

Lord Bates: ...with our friends in the European Union. We could also then remove the necessity to plan for no deal, Yet, so long as no deal remains even as a possible option, it would be remiss of any Government acting responsibly not to plan for that eventuality—although we hope with all our hearts that that outcome does not occur. This has been an excellent debate and I therefore want to use what...
