Scottish Parliament: Gender-based Violence (30 Nov 2021)

...those who are involved in prostitution—a marginalised group that has experienced multiple barriers to support during the pandemic. We are also committed to setting in place the right legislative environment to support and protect women. Our aspirations as a global leader in human rights include a new human rights bill that will incorporate into Scots law four United Nations human rights...

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [Lords] (29 Nov 2021)

Theresa Villiers: ...on freeholders, whether they are professionals or just flat owners who are banded together to manage their building. Frankly, not all leaseholders will want to take on such liabilities, yet this Bill will mean that for new flats, residents—whether they want this or not—will be jointly responsible for the safety, maintenance and upkeep of the apartment buildings in which they live,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Domestic Abuse (Safe Leave) Bill: Second Stage (29 Nov 2021)

Gordon Lyons: ...employers to provide the most appropriate support to their employees when they need it most. Regulation may not necessarily be the best vehicle for encouraging the supportive and understanding environment that we want to secure for those who are most vulnerable. A few comments were made about the limited time left in this mandate. I certainly hope that we can progress legislation during...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 'Decarbonisation of Road Transport in Northern Ireland': Committee Report (29 Nov 2021)

Dolores Kelly: ...Bann and how people there have been failed by the short-sighted closure of many of our railway networks. Nichola Mallon is picking up that challenge. Also this week, Colum Eastwood's Climate Change Bill is subject to debate and further progress at Westminster. We have supported other parties here, and, at some point in the new year, I hope to bring my nature restoration Bill to the Floor....

(AQT 1842/17-22)

Rivers and Coastal Waters: Sewage - Question (29 Nov 2021)

Baroness Quin: ...of widespread, unpermitted releases of sewage by water companies, which they are now admitting to. Given the urgency of the situation, has the Minister—beyond his concluding remarks on the Environment Bill—any updates on the timescale for progressively reducing sewage discharges, on bringing forward the Government’s own plan currently scheduled for next September, or on any other...

Portishead Railway (26 Nov 2021)

Andrew Stephenson: ...he will remember that phase 1 of HS2, taking the line from London to the west midlands, took four years to get through the House and the detailed examination of tens of thousands of pages of an environmental statement. I, like him, want to see us moving forward projects at pace, but however we legislate for nationally significant infrastructure projects—whether by hybrid Bill, DCO or...

Registers of Births and Deaths Bill (26 Nov 2021)

Sally-Ann Hart: I welcome the Bill introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Meriden (Saqib Bhatti), which seeks to make provision on the keeping and maintenance of registers of births and deaths. In Hastings and Rye we have Hastings register office and the beautiful Hastings town hall, and I thank all staff for all their hard work, particularly over the past 18 months when their patience and empathy has...

Down Syndrome Bill (26 Nov 2021)

Ian Paisley Jnr: Thank you for calling me in this debate, Mr Speaker. It was an absolute honour to be asked to be a joint sponsor of the Bill by the right hon. Member for North Somerset (Dr Fox), and I congratulate him on the way in which he has manoeuvred this piece of creative legislation through the minutiae of Government and civil service—not only to get it to the Floor of the House, but to do so with...

Tidal Energy Generation: Ringfenced Funding (25 Nov 2021)

Greg Hands: ...projects in the offing. My Department’s analysis shows that £20 million is optimal for that purpose and that a larger ring-fenced budget would serve neither the interests of the electricity bill payer, nor the interests of the sector itself, which must be pushed to innovate and find ways of bringing down its costs. So, yes, the Government have, this week, delivered for the burgeoning...

Army Restructuring: Future Soldier - Statement (25 Nov 2021)

Baroness Goldie: ...to reservists, so we hope that that attitude of co-operation will continue. On AI, the noble and gallant Lord is quite right: it continues, as we discussed during the passage of the Armed Forces Bill, to be an intricate, complex and challenging environment. He is aware that, as far as the MoD is concerned, there is a defence strategy coming out fairly imminently, so I cannot say any more...

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: New Clause 3 - Report on decommissioning costs (25 Nov 2021)

Greg Hands: I thank the hon. Gentleman for tabling the new clause. He is right that, in my view, it cannot be accepted into the Bill because it refers to granting rather than amending a licence; however, I welcome his attention to the costs of decommissioning, which is an important issue across all these projects. It is important to note that the Energy Act 2008 legislated to ensure that the operators of...

Business of the House (25 Nov 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...setting off; that must be the priority and it is why the Government have offered to help the French in any way that we can to try to stop those boats launching. Under the Nationality and Borders Bill, which the Opposition opposed, we are trying to make it easier for people to make legal claims for asylum, and harder for people who come into the country illegally to make claims. That must...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Nov 2021)

Huw Merriman: ...fair to look at our democratic process systems and propose reform; what is not fair is denigrating people who work incredibly hard to improve our legislation. I am thinking of, for instance, the Environment Bill and the impact it will have on sewage discharge in my constituency, and the help that was given to us by the House of Lords, whose proposals the Government agreed with and our side...

Social Media Platforms (Identity Verification) (24 Nov 2021)

Siobhan Baillie: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require social media platforms to offer a user identity verification process to all users; to require such platforms to offer options to limit or block interaction with other users who have chosen not to verify their identity through that process; and for connected purposes. It is now normal to be called names like “bitch” and...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 319AA (to Amendment 319A) (24 Nov 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...looked at them all individually, somehow hearing them one after the other made me feel that this is totally wrong. If the Government do not withdraw all these amendments, we should vote against the Bill in its entirety. The Minister talked about protestors, referring to the issue of whatever their cause may be. But the HS2 protestors, of whom I consider myself one, have actually been...

Naomi Long: The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts (PCSC) Bill was introduced at Westminster on 9 March and deals with a number of policing and justice issues. Members will be aware of the contentious nature of some of the powers included in the Bill, which will apply only in England and Wales, and will have their own position on those matters. However, with due respect to those particular issues,...

Black Friday: Financial Products — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Nov 2021)

Stella Creasy: ...are using this form of credit. It is now in over 20,000 major brands in the UK including Marks & Spencer, Pennies, Halfords, Asos, PrettyLittleThing, and I SAW IT FIRST. Klarna was valued at £46 billion as a business in the last investment round—I believe that is more than several of our public services—and claims to have 13 million customers in the UK. That is across every single one...

Climate Education (23 Nov 2021)

Nadia Whittome: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require matters relating to climate change and sustainability to be integrated throughout the curriculum in primary and secondary schools and included in vocational training courses; and for connected purposes. Madam Deputy Speaker, 2050 is the year that the world needs to reach net zero. This will require fundamental changes to every...
