backbench business: [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (9 Dec 2021)

Leo Docherty: ...particular interest to Salute Her. My right hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East mentioned the importance of recruitment and flexible working. I remember when he was Minister on the Public Bill Committee scrutinising the Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Act 2018. I will write to him with some figures. I do not have figures today, but I do have very positive anecdotal experience of...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (9 Dec 2021)

Virendra Sharma: Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of bringing forward a standalone clean air Bill.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Buildings: Safety (9 Dec 2021)

Christopher Pincher: ...work with industry on improving best practice. With regard to building safety, the Government is bringing forward fundamental changes to the building regulatory regime through the Building Safety Bill. This includes establishing a new regulator which will have oversight of the whole built environment; and improve building and fire safety, so that people will be, and will feel, safer in...

Scottish Parliament: Human Rights Day 2021 (9 Dec 2021)

Fulton MacGregor: ...the maximum extent that is possible, as soon as is practicable. I was a member of the committee that considered the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill in the previous parliamentary session. The Parliament agreed unanimously to pass the bill, which sought to remedy any human rights violations that children and young people experience from...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 11 (8 Dec 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...to each other. It simply ensures that there is a legislative basis in place to enable information to be shared between all authorities exercising functions under Chapter 1 of Part 2 of the Bill. The clause also ensures that any disclosures must only be made in compliance with data protection legislation and cannot be made if certain prohibitions on disclosure set out in the Investigatory...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 2 (8 Dec 2021)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ...this is about balance: “This language has been used in HM Government guidance on unauthorised encampments since March 2015,” as the noble Baroness noted, but it was not statutory guidance; the Bill now provides this. “That guidance made clear that human rights legislation does not prevent action to protect local amenities and the local environment; to maintain public order and...

Public Bill Committee: Animals (Penalty Notices) Bill: Clause 1 - Powers of enforcement authorities (8 Dec 2021)

Andrew Rosindell: ...taken on board a lot of the comments that have been made. I know there are things that need to be ironed out and further explanation to be given, but I think we all agree that the principle of the Bill will enhance animal welfare in this country. In particular, I thank my friends the hon. Member for Rotherham, for her contribution and for her steadfast support for all the animal welfare...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 3 - Offence of human trafficking for sexual exploitation (8 Dec 2021)

Diana R. Johnson: ...we might see late disclosure by victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking. Victims may not identify as victims first and foremost, it can be only when a person is removed from the exploitative environment that they understand they were in fact being abused and exploited.” And yet, the Bill proposes a time limit on disclosure. The Modern Slavery Policy Unit, co-led by Justice and...

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading (7 Dec 2021)

Baroness Jenkin of Kennington: ...such as diet or exercise, which, sadly, we know do not work. Just 19% of policies focused on making it easier for people to be healthier by shaping the choices available to them. That is where this Bill, specifically Schedule 17, comes in. Every child has a right to be healthy, no matter where they live. It should be a simple principle to follow that we make it as easy as possible for...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 20 - References to justices of the peace in relation to Northern Ireland (7 Dec 2021)

Patrick Grady: This Bill is literally inhumane: it dehumanises asylum seekers, puts lives at risk and turns people into criminals for simply attempting to exercise their basic human rights. But the UK Government are not going to let small matters such as fundamental human rights, the rule of law and natural justice get in the way of their hostile environment, and their attempts to exclude practically anyone...

Antimicrobial Resistance (7 Dec 2021)

Julian Sturdy: ...already been touched on in this debate, but arguably our perspective on that has shifted somewhat when we consider the scale of the fiscal firepower deployed against the covid virus—some £378 billion in this country alone, as of October’s Budget. Given the potential of AMR to equal or surpass what covid has done, as my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton mentioned, with the...

Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 2 - Acquisition by registration: Descendants of those born on British Indian Ocean Territory (7 Dec 2021)

Mohammad Yasin: I am deeply concerned by and opposed to the great majority of the proposals in this inherently authoritarian Bill. Much of it appears to be written to satisfy front-page tabloid headlines rather than to fix the broken asylum system. It amounts to a fundamental rejection of our international obligations under the 1951 UN convention relating to the status of refugees and does nothing to resolve...

Public Bill Committee: Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Information about technical education and training: access to English schools (7 Dec 2021)

Toby Perkins: ...the end there, I have to say that he would have better achieved what he set out to achieve had his party not voted against clause 14. All new clause 1 does is weaken the clause 14 that was in the Bill and that the Committee voted against this morning. Notwithstanding that, we recognise that the new clause will be better than not having it at all. It removes requirements for university...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Executive Committee Business: Horse Racing (Amendment) Bill: Final Stage (7 Dec 2021)

Edwin Poots: I am pleased that the Bill has reached its Final Stage. I am grateful for the wide support that the Bill, which will amend the Horse Racing (Northern Ireland) Order 1990, has received during its passage through the Assembly. As Members will be aware, the 1990 Order provides for the horse racing fund. The fund is made up of a levy collected from bookmakers and is to be used to assist in the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Executive Committee Business: Direct Payments to Farmers (Simplifications) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2022 (7 Dec 2021)

Patsy McGlone: ...way of subsidy or payment — call it what you will. It is crucial that that continues, but I want to add to that, and I am sure that the Minister will hear what I say. We have two climate change Bills working their way through the Committee for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs. Irrespective of which Bill, perhaps in amended form, comes through at the end, changes will be needed...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Executive Committee Business: Social Security (Terminal Illness) Bill: Second Stage (7 Dec 2021)

Paul Frew: ...They might make a best guess of a year and a half, and that person could be dead in three months. Surely, this is the least that we can do in the short time left in this term. Surely, if there is a Bill that is worthy of the Assembly, it is the Social Security (Terminal Illness) Bill. Let us do something right by the people who have had a hammer blow of a diagnosis or prognosis. Their days...

Public Bill Committee: Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [Lords]: Clause 19 - Initial teacher training for further education (7 Dec 2021)

Toby Perkins: ...as early as possible—I think every one of us would appreciate that point. But, accepting that that has not happened, it is crucial to ensure that people at every level in the further education environment understand and are aware of the issues. The new clause proposed by the noble Lords has real value, and I urge the Government to consider ensuring in the Bill that people across our FE...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 39 (6 Dec 2021)

Lord Benyon: ...for those remarks. I think it might be helpful to the House if I say how this came about, as it answers the points about how we got to the stage of including decapods and cephalopods in the Bill. It is a matter of serendipity. For many years people have been pushing for work to be done, and it was done by the LSE. It just so happened that that report came into the Government’s hands...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 28 (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...in the name of the noble Earl, Lord Caithness, he is right that we do need to look out for any unintended consequences of legislation. There are concerns that there may be an adverse impact on the environment. It is important that the Minister is able to reassure noble Lords that there will not be these outcomes from the Bill being enacted. This brings me back to the points we made earlier...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Hunting of Wild Mammals Bill: Second Stage (6 Dec 2021)

Claire Sugden: ...it back to the point that I was making. Yes, human nature is such that people will do those things, but, at the same time, that does not mean that we should not write good law. I fully support the Bill, but, if we can make it better, is that not where we all want to be? The point that I was trying to make was in response to what Mr Stalford said earlier about intent. Is it enough to assume...
