Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Examination of witnesses (16 Nov 2021)

...industrial relations model that we have in place at Hinkley Point. The benefit that it is creating for the workforce there could be transferred to Sizewell C, and amendments could be made to the Bill to entrench that within the process. We have a joint project board set up at Hinkley Point B, and the unions have an influential voice within it. A committee was also set up on site to deliver...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 3 - Licensing standards and other requirements (16 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: ...slightly surprised that we needed to table this set of amendments, which concern the limited scope and lack of clarity on what the standards will be. We have discussed before what should be in the Bill and what should be left to regulation. In time-honoured fashion, I suspect that the Opposition want more and the Government want less. We may well find our positions reversed in a few...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 8 - Written procedure for indicating plea and determining mode of trial: children (16 Nov 2021)

James Cartlidge: ...children. It is fair to point out, however, that these are not revolutionary changes of procedure. In my view, there will certainly be cases where, particularly for vulnerable people, the online environment is more suitable in many ways, because after all they will have legal representation. I will explain clearly exactly what the clause does, what the safeguards are and where the...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 1 - Prohibition on keeping primates without a licence (16 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: ...debate over the next few days. I think we all enjoyed the excellent witness sessions last week, from which we learned a great deal, and there is much common ground. Both parties promised this Bill in their election manifestos, and I am delighted that the Government have put Members on the Committee who have expertise and interest in it. I strongly encourage them to speak, intervene and...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Waste Disposal (16 Nov 2021)

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [Lords] (15 Nov 2021)

Siobhan Baillie: I congratulate the Department for Education, Ministers, former Ministers and the former Secretary of State on their work to get the Bill over the line. I have been amazed to listen to Opposition Members rewrite their education history. Labour’s “Education, education, education,” sounded good, but it actually focused on getting 50% of kids into university, regardless of the degree, and...

Water Companies: Sewage Discharge — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (15 Nov 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...be for emergency use, are used far too frequently, which is absolutely unacceptable. I have said that frequently. We are the first Government to take decisive action on storm overflows through the Environment Act. I established the storm overflows taskforce to look into the issue and to inform us. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Keighley (Robbie Moore), who did great work on the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Damages (Return on Investment) Bill: Consideration Stage (15 Nov 2021)

Mervyn Storey: Before I address the amendment, with your indulgence, Mr Deputy Speaker, I will make some general remarks about the Bill in my capacity as Chair of the Justice Committee and to set out the context in which the Committee reached its decisions on the legislation. The Committee appreciates the need for a stable, long-term personal injury discount rate to be set in Northern Ireland, with...

Hereditary Peers: By-elections - Question (10 Nov 2021)

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, the work of this House, as shown on the Environment Bill this week, is greatly valued and respected, but we lose that respect because of the deep and profound concerns about the size of the House and the way in which people get here. Will the Government finally acknowledge that we need restraint and effective scrutiny on political appointments and that we need to end the farce of...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tree Planting (10 Nov 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...Finally, LAs are also expected to play a central part in the delivery of the new Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRSs), a new system of spatial strategies for nature, to be delivered through the Environment Bill, which will cover the whole of England. We anticipate that LNRSs will become a key mechanism through which appropriate land for woodland creation is identified at a local level...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (9 Nov 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: ...It is hard to be more specific; that is the Government’s job and if the Government fail in their duties there are a number of other accountability mechanisms which we are introducing through the Bill—not least the OEP—to ensure that the Government do their job. My noble friend Lady McIntosh asked about timelines. We have committed to review Schedule 3; I have put that on the record...

Shrewsbury Town Centre Redevelopment: Nuclear Power Funding (9 Nov 2021)

Alan Whitehead: ...because of the Government’s desire to remove Chinese influence from the future of the UK nuclear programme. I am sure we will discuss that further when we debate the Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill over the next few weeks, as mentioned by the hon. Member for Ynys Môn. That second financing option—namely, getting a foreign Government involved—is probably not a good idea. As the hon....

Giving Every Baby the Best Start in Life (9 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: ...an emphasis on local authorities or health and wellbeing boards—in my case, I think integrated care systems is the model. I proposed that in a new clause that I tabled to the Health and Care Bill, which the Government were not minded to accept. I hope that we might be able to work together on that, and that we might get something in the Bill to that effect in its remaining stages. I...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witness (9 Nov 2021)

Neil Hudson: ...and ponies. I see from your experience, Mike, that you have worked with all creatures great and small, and you have some experience in the equine world as well. The export of livestock in the Bill covers horses. We on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee have taken evidence that not one horse has been legally exported to the EU for slaughter, but potentially thousands have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Period Products (Free Provision) Bill: Second Stage (9 Nov 2021)

Órlaithí Flynn: I welcome the opportunity to speak on the Bill as an MLA, as a member of the Health Committee and as a woman. Rosemary has just mentioned the fact that period products are not luxury items; they are essential items in the life of every girl and woman. We all need them. They are also costly, particularly when income is limited. Period care is essential healthcare, and monthly menstruation is a...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A (9 Nov 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, this is a momentous month for the environment. We are hosting the world at COP 26, the world’s best chance to reach agreement on the action needed to avert catastrophic climate change and support those already experiencing its effects. Huge global progress has already been made in this forum. Over 130 countries representing more than 90% of the world’s forests have committed to...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 3 - Automatic online conviction and penalty for certain summary offences (9 Nov 2021)

Damien Moore: ...some quick remarks in support of clause 3 stand part. First, it is about speeding up the system and tackling the backlog, which we have and have all heard about in the course of proceedings on the Bill. It is important that we get to grips with the backlog. Using online technology to help to remedy it is, I think, incredibly important, but I do not think it should be the only way we do...
