Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Dec 2021)

Imran Hussain: ...along with thousands of others, came to this country 70 years ago, working seven days a week in squalid conditions to help rebuild this country. Now, the Home Secretary’s Nationality and Borders Bill means that she can revoke our British citizenship and deport us for even the most minor wrongdoings. Given the horrific track record of the Government and the Home Office, with their...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Second Reading (30 Nov 2021)

Lord True: ...maiden speech. All of the House found it entrancing: it was deeply rooted in history, traditions and a sense of place, cherishing the best of our past and showing a love and knowledge of the environment. It was also so forward-looking in embracing new technologies and ideas for the future. My noble friend said he liked a challenge. Well, I think we will all relish the challenge that he set...

Community Energy Schemes — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (30 Nov 2021)

Alan Whitehead: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) on obtaining the debate this afternoon and on putting forward the case for local energy, particularly for a community energy Bill, in such a succinct and complete way. That means I do not have to say all the things that I was going to say about a local community energy Bill, other than to say that we on the Opposition Benches thoroughly...

Public Health (30 Nov 2021)

Christopher Chope: ...proposals to require vaccine passports. I do not believe people’s freedom should be conditional on taking compulsory medication, which is why I am against the provisions in the Health and Care Bill on compulsory fluoridation. To that extent, I am probably on the same side of the argument as she is. A mood of increasing intolerance is being engendered towards those who have a reasonable...

Microplastic Filters (Washing Machines) (30 Nov 2021)

Alberto Costa: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require manufacturers to fit microplastic-catching filters to new domestic and commercial washing machines; to make provision about the promotion of the use of microplastic-catching filters in washing machines and raising awareness about the consequences of microplastics from washing machines for pollution in rivers and seas; and for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill: Second Stage (30 Nov 2021)

Philip McGuigan: I welcome the opportunity to outline the Committee's views on the Bill that the Minister has introduced. The Committee supports the proposed legislation, which will ensure that perpetrators who harm animals when they are carrying out their duties cannot rely on the argument of self-defence. I am sure that all Members will empathise with the story of Finn, a police German shepherd dog that was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill: Accelerated Passage (30 Nov 2021)

Edwin Poots: .... Therefore, I will explain, as required under Standing Order 32(4), why I seek accelerated passage and the consequences if it is not granted.

I thank the Chair and members of the Committee for their recognition of the need to expedite the...

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....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Climate Change Bill: Rural Impact (29 Nov 2021)

Thomas Buchanan: T2. Mr T Buchanan asked the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs for his assessment of the independent KPMG report on the impact that the private Member’s Bill on climate change will have on areas across Northern Ireland and particularly in his constituency of West Tyrone, which is a large rural, farming area. (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...
