Refugees: Mass Displacement - Motion to Take Note (6 Jan 2022)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...of Afghans faced with starvation, and thousands will continue to seek refuge in other countries, including the UK. I could not participate in yesterday’s Second Reading of the appalling borders Bill, and I will not rehearse the powerful arguments against the Bill, but I am deeply concerned about the hostile narrative that it fosters. So many refugees and asylum seekers feel unworthy and...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Second Reading (5 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hamwee: ...curiosity”—an encouragement to probe, analyse and avoid the unthoughtful and the knee-jerk. It seems to me that professional curiosity has been lacking both from the underlying policy and this Bill. The noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, mentioned virtue signalling. There certainly seems to have been no attempt to understand the push factors. I should apply that to myself. How is it that a...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 32 - Introduction (5 Jan 2022)

Lucy Frazer: ...confidence in the housing market. As part of the building safety package announced in February 2021, we are introducing a new residential property developer tax, which will raise at least £2 billion over the next decade to help to pay for building safety remediation. As announced on 10 February 2021 by the previous Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, my...

Historical Allegations of Sexual Abuse: Non-UK Armed Forces Personnel: Immigration Requirements (5 Jan 2022)

Dave Doogan: ...relating to these personnel that should have been dealt with years ago, and most certainly could have been dealt with during the passage of the Armed Forces Act 2021 or the Nationality and Borders Bill. Hon. Members from across the House repeatedly raise this issue, on account of its status as a national disgrace, and this Government repeatedly fail to act. On the one hand, Ministers talk...

Historical Allegations of Sexual Abuse: Deforestation in the Amazon — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (5 Jan 2022)

Fabian Hamilton: ...down and that deforestation continues to go unchallenged? Given that this Government’s Ministers boasted of their world-leading approach to protecting vital rainforest habitats as part of the Environment Bill in November last year, launching a consultation in December pledging to “clean up the UK’s supply chains”, is the Minister concerned that the scheme applies only to...

New Homes: Developers, Housebuilders and Management Companies — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Jan 2022)

Natalie Elphicke: ...-governmental work by the Administrations in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It started with the vital leadership of the all-party parliamentary group for excellence in the built environment. I am delighted that the Minister is present, and is shepherding in these far-reaching reforms through the Building Safety Bill and other measures, as he was the chair of the APPG, which...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Food: Production (22 Dec 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My remark referred to comments made by my noble Friend during the passage of the Environment Bill, where he implied a focus on the environment could conflict with the need to produce food. The remark did not refer to the speech delivered by my noble Friend during the Beyond Brexit Debate (15 November 2021). The Government is committed to rewarding farmers and land managers for their role as...

Prisons Strategy - Statement (16 Dec 2021)

Lord Paddick: ...says: “Prisons play a vital role in protecting the public by keeping the most prolific and dangerous offenders in custody”— although, as we see from the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, even peaceful protesters are going to be subject to custodial sentences— “and rehabilitating those who deserve a second chance.” Can the Minister explain which prisoners do not deserve...

International Development Strategy - Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2021)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: ...also expect to remain a major donor to the UN and other international organisations. Despite the seismic impact of the pandemic on the UK and global economy, the UK will still spend more than £10 billion of ODA in 2021. I want to address the comments from a number of noble Lords, particularly the noble Lords, Lord Purvis and Lord Oates, and the noble Baroness, Lady Hodgson. Few people...

Joint Committee on the Draft Online Safety Bill (16 Dec 2021)

Damian Collins: ...you, Madam Deputy Speaker, all Members of the House and all members of House staff a very merry Christmas? Following the publication of the Joint Committee’s report on the draft Online Safety Bill on Tuesday, I want to take this opportunity to inform the House of its publication and the key themes that we have addressed. The Joint Committee was formed as a pre-legislative scrutiny...

Business of the House (16 Dec 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...we do in Parliament is crucial. Holding the Government to account and ensuring that people can express their views is fundamental. The House authorities have been brilliant in running a covid-safe environment. There are tests available, and people have been testing themselves like billy-o, as is their responsibility, in order to try to keep us all safe. The idea that we should run away...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 88A (15 Dec 2021)

Baroness Chakrabarti: ...care for them most.” Who said that? It is not a Christmas quiz. It was the Minister repeating a sentence what feels like a long time ago, but it was earlier this evening in proceedings on this Bill in your Lordships’ House. What if the same child victim of cruelty or neglect survives and grows to act out as a damaged little person as a result of that neglect or abuse? I am very...

Sugar Beet: Neonicotinoids - Question (15 Dec 2021)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...let us be clear what we are talking about: this pesticide is lethal to bees and other insects, and it leaches into the soil, causing long-term damage to wildlife. During our deliberations on the Environment Bill, the Minister, the noble Lord, Lord Goldsmith, pledged to work “harder and faster” to address the “dramatic decline in pollinators”, and confirmed that the scientific...

National Food Strategy and Public Health — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (15 Dec 2021)

Jo Churchill: ...is critical. I heard the message about farming and labour, and I will take that back to my hon. Friend the Minister for Farming, Fisheries and Food so I hope he will hear something on that shortly. Environmental land management schemes, the 25-year environment plan and the sustainable farming initiative all ensure we are moving towards the right package of initiatives to help our farmers...

Public Bill Committee: Approved Premises (Substance Testing) Bill: Clause 1 - Substance testing of residents in approved premises (15 Dec 2021)

Ellie Reeves: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Mundell. I thank the hon. Member for Aylesbury for introducing this important Bill. It is concerning that drug deaths in approved premises have increased in recent years, while there has been a rise in psychoactive substances such as Spice and skunk. Meanwhile, there is currently no comprehensive framework for substance testing in approved...

Scottish Parliament: Economy (North-east Scotland) (15 Dec 2021)

Maurice Golden: ...of the North Sea’s future. On one hand, we have the potential for a just transition, ushering in a new age of prosperity for Scotland. Decommissioning will play a central role, with up to £50 billion being invested in the North Sea by 2040. The potential exists to support thousands of jobs, either directly or through supply chains—jobs that oil and gas workers are well placed to fill,...

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill - Report: Amendment 6 (14 Dec 2021)

Baroness Noakes: ...be overcome with excessive caution because they are worried about what would happen if their conversations had to be revealed through Freedom of Information Act requests. Creativity thrives in an environment where it is not subject to ex-post analysis. The other reason why I wanted to speak this evening is that I do not understand why Amendments 6 and 7 have been positioned as they are in...

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill - Report: Amendment 4 (14 Dec 2021)

Lord Ravensdale: ...withdrawn my original Committee amendment, which attempted to implement one. Instead, I am looking to put a “have regard to” statement in the UK’s primary strategic goal of climate and the environment, similar to the other statements in Clause 2(6) of the Bill on ARIA’s functions, which talk about economic growth, promoting scientific innovation and improving quality of life. ARIA...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: The Severe Fetal Impairment Abortion (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (14 Dec 2021)

Paula Bradshaw: ...and dedication to their field of medicine. They were absolutely affronted that anyone in the Chamber would accuse them of trying to coerce anyone into having an abortion. I will move on. The Bill sponsor likes to ignore the professionals, but I do not. For example, let us consider what the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists had to say on the issue: "Removing these provisions...
