Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Clause 4 - Expiry of designation (18 Nov 2021)

Greg Hands: ...Subsection (4) of the clause requires that prior to granting an extension for a maximum of five years, the Secretary of State would need to consult the company, the authority, the ONR, the relevant environment agency, and the devolved Governments if relevant. Before exercising that power, the Secretary of State would also need to continue to be satisfied that the criteria for designation...

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Clause 3 - Designation: procedure (18 Nov 2021)

Alan Brown: ...the cost to consumers is one of the items that has been suggested, but the Government are also good at saying that a new nuclear power station will add only £x a year to a consumer’s electricity bill and therefore it will have minimal impact on bills. That is a very neat way of trying to argue that a new nuclear station involves minimal cost to consumers, but of course we are talking...

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Paul Howell: ...will have to travel. Prompt, community access to defibrillators can dramatically help improve the chances of survival. Indeed, it would help to level up between urban and rural communities. The AED Bill would make an important legislative change, helping to build a better, safer environment for people in the community and increasing the cardiac arrest survival rate. As a nation, we have...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: New Clause 20 - Review of Dangerous Dogs Act (18 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: ...currently permit prohibited dog types for new owners, regardless of the individual dog’s behaviour, so the only option permitted is euthanasia. The new clause is in line with the findings of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee’s 2018 inquiry, which showed that the current dangerous dogs legislation fails to protect safety and can harm animal welfare. The EFRA report...

Critical Benchmarks (References and Administrators’ Liability) Bill [Lords] (18 Nov 2021)

Peter Grant: I am grateful to the Minister for setting out so clearly the background to the Bill and why it is needed, and for his answers to some of the questions that I raised. I do not think that anyone would doubt the need for this Bill or something very similar. LIBOR is clearly not fit for purpose, but we cannot just shut it down without replacing it with something, and that something has to have...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 91 - Commencement (18 Nov 2021)

Seema Malhotra: We broadly support clause 91, which sets out which parts of the Bill will come into effect and when. We recognise the need to establish when and how various parts of the Bill will come into force. However, at the same time, we want to ensure that this important new regime is not implemented unnecessarily slowly, because the implementation of legislation can sometimes get delayed when it is...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 79 - Guidance (18 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: ...c) and (e), will the Secretary of State consider the devolved Administrations to be reasonable organisations to contact before issuing guidance around the subsidy control principles, the energy and environment principles, the subsidy control requirements and, crucially, the criteria for determining whether something is of interest or particular interest? That is a really important part of...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 47 - Zoos (18 Nov 2021)

Victoria Prentis: ...zoos are required to carry out conservation, education and research. Some of our zoos do incredibly valuable work in those areas, but others, frankly, should do more. The changes set out in this Bill should help to deliver that. The current conservation requirements in the Zoo Licensing Act were introduced in 2002, and have not been updated since. They have been criticised as being on the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Harmful Content Online (18 Nov 2021)

Nadine Dorries: This is a novel and groundbreaking Bill that will legislate in a way that has never been done before, in a new sector and a new environment. Ongoing scrutiny on a regular basis once the Bill becomes an Act will be extremely important. We will look at how we are going to manage that within the Bill.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 241 (17 Nov 2021)

Earl Attlee: ...high-quality, well-motivated teachers with good facilities struggle to get illiterate offenders even to sit down in a classroom, let alone learn. I am not convinced that a conventional classroom environment is the right one for these youngsters. Furthermore, they need exceptionally strong incentives to improve their standard of education as well as their conduct. Unfortunately, there can...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 222 (17 Nov 2021)

Lord German: ...of secure schools. These have since been renamed secure 16 to 19 academies. Legally, they will be approved by the Secretary of State for Education as secure accommodation and are defined in the Bill as “secure children’s homes”. In 2019, the Ministry of Justice contracted Oasis Charitable Trust to run its first experimental secure school, now called a secure 16 to 19 academy. As I...

Scottish Parliament: Circular Economy (17 Nov 2021)

Lorna Slater: ...the review would be led by an independent chair, and I am pleased to announce that we have appointed Dr Colin Church to that role. Dr Church brings a wealth of experience from across the waste and environmental sectors. I am particularly conscious of the fact that how we treat our residual waste can have wider, unwanted impacts on communities and the environment in both the short and the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (16 Nov 2021)

Helen Whately: ...the debate, but I want to begin by reminding the House of the announcements made by the Chancellor in the Budget: more investment in infrastructure, innovation and skills; business rates cut by £7 billion, including the 50% business rates discount for the retail, hospital and leisure sectors; a cut in the universal credit taper; a £500 increase in work allowances; and an increase in the...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 46 - Powers relating to importation of certain dogs, cats and ferrets (16 Nov 2021)

Victoria Prentis: ...have had an interesting and useful debate. We were well informed by our evidence sessions, by evidence submitted in our extensive consultation launched in August, and by the excellent report of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee. As we move forward, it is clear that Members on both sides of the House are committed to these improvements, which ought to crack down on illegal...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 45 - Reduction in limit on non-commercial movement of pets (16 Nov 2021)

Geraint Davies: Bad news. I have the casting vote, but I have an obligation not to vote in favour of an amendment that changes the Bill, even though I am on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee—Neil, I love you. I will have to vote against the amendment, because I am obliged, as Chair, to do so. Unfortunately, the amendment falls.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Horse Racing (Amendment) Bill: Consideration Stage (16 Nov 2021)

Edwin Poots: ...added other issues to it, that certainly would have created potential for none of it to happen. Many of the issues that have been raised today relate to things outside the direct scope of the short Bill as introduced. The Chair and others referred to the call for a strategic review of the fund operation, and others specifically mentioned extension of the fund to other beneficiaries. As I...

Flooding (Prevention and Insurance) (16 Nov 2021)

Emma Hardy: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to set national minimum requirements for flood mitigation and protection measures in new build public and private properties enforced by local planning authorities; to place reporting requirements on local and national government in relation to flood prevention measures; to establish a certification scheme for improvements to domestic and...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 20 - Guidance (16 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: ...State is tardy in providing guidance to local authorities. This takes us back to the equally long-standing issue of support for local authorities, or lack thereof. Throughout the proceedings on the Bill and in the evidence and submissions that we have had from various organisations—we have talked about this at some length this morning already—real concern has been expressed about the...

Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (16 Nov 2021)

Maggie Throup: ...include a focus on protecting young people and adults from the harms of tobacco within our tobacco control plan. As I have already indicated, I am ambitious for our new plan. On the Health and Care Bill, at this stage we do not feel that it is the right Bill for the suggested measures without a full assessment. Members should rest assured that they will be fully considered as the tobacco...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 5 - DETERMINATION OF APPLICATIONS (16 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: .... It is hardly surprising that many animal welfare organisations believe that a high level of expertise should be a prerequisite of assessing whether a keeper will be able to provide the right environment for a primate. Amendments 110 and 111 address the aspects of the Bill that cover premises inspections for licence applications and renewals, which under the Bill currently can be carried...
