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...

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...

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.

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 49 - Cap on Care Costs for charging Purposes (22 Nov 2021)

Apsana Begum: .... The increased risks of those on lower incomes and black, Asian and minority ethnic communities catching and dying from covid-19 have been well documented, yet the provisions outlined in the Bill will likely make the situation much worse. I tabled amendment 99 in particular after seeing evidence that people are being denied access to healthcare, or are facing high charges for doing so...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Geraint Davies: ...include, and what the Minister is not considering, is the mass passive smoking from air pollution, which causes 64,000 deaths a year. I know that I am in danger of being outside the scope of the Bill, but I will make this point just briefly, because it is about public health. Indoor and outdoor air pollution is endemic. It costs £20 billion a year. We could simply ban wood-burning stoves,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Hospital Parking Charges Bill: Second Stage (22 Nov 2021)

Robin Swann: I congratulate Miss Reilly on her willingness, as a new Member, to take on the difficult task of sponsoring a private Member's Bill. Legislation is no easy responsibility — nor is following Fra McCann, as, I am sure, she is well aware — but it is what the House does best. The current policy — as Ms Bradshaw pointed out, it is policy, not legislation — on car parking provision and...

Channel Crossings in Small Boats (22 Nov 2021)

Imran Hussain: The increasing anti-refugee, anti-migration rhetoric of the Home Secretary has left many of my hard-working constituents extremely fearful for their futures, particularly given the continued hostile environment created by the Home Office and her last-minute amendment to the Nationality and Borders Bill that would allow the Home Office to strip ordinary British nationals of their citizenship...

Planning (Enforcement) Bill (19 Nov 2021)

Ben Spencer: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. Rogue development is the cause of great anger and misery in Runnymede and Weybridge.

Our green belt prevents urban sprawl, protects biodiversity, provides a home for countless types of wildlife and provides essential outdoor space for leisure. Whether it is green parks,...

Glue Traps (Offences) Bill (19 Nov 2021)

Cherilyn Mackrory: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. First and foremost, I pay tribute to my good and hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton North East (Jane Stevenson), who has put in a huge amount of hard work to bring this private Member’s Bill forward, and is hugely disappointed that she cannot be here today due to illness. I am sure that everybody in the Chamber will wish her the...

Onshore Wind Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, this debate has been unanimous in both backing the Bill put forward by the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, and thanking her for her work and the very clear, unarguable argument she presented for it. Like others, I declare my involvement in Peers for the Planet. I am pleased to follow all of the speakers in this debate who have already made the very clear environmental and economic...

Age Assurance (Minimum Standards) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: law firms in the United States, and probably here, are already looking at potential litigation and class actions. But we do not have time to wait for that.

House of Lords: Appointments Process - Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2021)

The key role of your Lordships’ House is to scrutinise and revise legislation, as is so ably evidenced by our work on recent Bills, particularly the Environment Bill. I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, that such work is undermined by concerns about the size of the House and the way people get here. We need...
