Scottish Parliament: International Day of Persons with Disabilities (2 Dec 2021)

Stephanie Callaghan: ...treated exactly the same regardless of need or any other individual difference, whereas equity means that everyone is provided with what they need to succeed. Equity is about levelling the playing field. As a South Lanarkshire councillor, I have had the joy and privilege of working with councillor Grant Ferguson, who is the first British Sign Language-using councillor in Scotland....

Public Bill Committee: Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Local skills improvement plans (30 Nov 2021)

Alex Burghart: ...people with special educational needs and disabilities. That goes back to the point that my hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich made. When I was on the Work and Pensions Committee with the great Frank Field, that was exactly the sort of thing that we were calling for. I am very pleased that this Administration have seen it go out. The 12-month pilots of the adjustments passport that are...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Peter Bottomley: ...has found an imaginative way of giving help to people before the end of the year. I think that there will be a great deal of approval for that. I would like to say something in tribute to Frank Field, who spent a long time working on child benefits. As and when there is extra money for children, I would give it through child benefit. I would not give it through the extra provision of...

Social Security (Up-rating of Benefits) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 (26 Oct 2021)

Baroness Boycott: ...Lady Sherlock. I thank her for that incredibly good and detailed outline of what the problem is. I want to speak briefly as the chair of the charity Feeding Britain, where I succeeded the wonderful Frank Field—the noble Lord, Lord Field of Birkenhead. We began three years ago to support the rollout of affordable food projects. We originally held the assumption that most of the people who...

Investment Industry Exposure to Modern Slavery (26 Oct 2021)

Karen Bradley: ...on Report, and tabled amendments constantly, including on supply chains. Section 54 was not in the Bill when we started. The Bill had gone through prelegislative scrutiny by a Committee chaired by Frank Field, now of the other place. I am going to call him by name. I know that we would normally refer to him as the noble Lord Field, but everyone will have seen the news that he made public...

Back British Farming Day — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (15 Sep 2021)

Theo Clarke: ...farmers have been so severely affected by dealing with HS2 that they have had their shotguns removed, for their own safety, due to a mental breakdown because of not receiving compensation. To be frank, my constituents have been treated with absolute contempt by HS2. No one asked for their farms and villages to be cut in half by the proposed line. They feel they are being treated like an...

Scottish Parliament: Tokyo Olympic Games (Team GB Success) (8 Sep 2021)

Brian Whittle: ...medals to his collection in the wheelchair tennis. At this point, I have to declare a bias when I tell the chamber that the medal that I celebrated most was Laura Muir’s silver in the 1500m. The field was absolutely stacked with the highest quality athletes, but she fought her way on to the podium in a global final at last, after so many attempts that came so close. Presiding Officer,...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (7 Sep 2021)

John Martin McDonnell: Professor Stock, on a point that you raised, you are right that we need to ensure that freedom of speech in the academic field is regularly debated. We need to remind ourselves of the critical importance of it as well. My concern is that sometimes in Parliament we see an issue and we rush to legislate, which is not always well thought out as a result of the lack of preparation and...

Medicinal Cannabis (6 Sep 2021)

Crispin Blunt: ..., although of course there are duties that we all owe to them, and they raise the question of what we would do in their position. I was in the Chamber when my right hon. Friend said that he and Frank Field would be at customs to deliver the bottles of medicine—and an absolutely splendid occasion it was, too. It is not just about epileptic children; it is also about people with multiple...

Building Safety Bill (21 Jul 2021)

Justin Madders: ...building safety for some time. We had an informative meeting last week, alongside the fire safety and rescue APPG, with Ted Baillieu, who co-chaired the Victoria cladding taskforce and gave a frank and compelling account of his experience when his state dealt with many of the issues covered by the Bill. Put simply, we take his advice that Government have to take a far bigger role in...

Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative (17 Jun 2021)

James Duddridge: ...with existing international architecture. We will need to look at jurisdiction issues and limitations on accessing some sovereign states, particularly in periods of conflict in the middle. To be frank, despite our efforts, there has been a lack of political will among partner organisations, including the UN and other states, although we were trying to get a band of support together. Also,...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (25 May 2021)

Victoria Atkins: ...could prove inflexible as the nature of child criminal exploitation adapts. In addition, as the hon. Lady has rightly noted, the independent review of the Modern Slavery Act, conducted by Frank Field—now Lord Field—and by my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) and Baroness Butler-Sloss, considered the definition of child criminal exploitation under the Act and...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 May 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: ..., but it urgently requires further implementation. The position that we hold as innovators in dealing with modern slavery across the world is slipping. I will refer to several parts of the Frank Field review of the Act, of which I was a member. The most important gap is in the supply chain. Much of the transparency of supply chain legislation—Section 54—requires it to be mandatory for...

Grassroots Football: Feltham and Heston (12 May 2021)

Seema Malhotra: ...than just a sport, and it begins at grassroots level. When we talk about grassroots football, we need to truly appreciate what that means. Grassroots football is about every park and every playing field across the UK. It is about giving every club and every individual of all ages and genders who has the desire to be involved in the game the opportunity to do so. Even in the face of...

GKN Automotive Plant: Birmingham — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (28 Apr 2021)

Jack Dromey: ...taking the number of employees from 1,200 down to 600, with a further 270 redundancies in 2018, and, in the process, moving production overseas and hollowing out a once great company. Today, global field service engineers still employed by Brush are balloting against fire and rehire pay cuts of up to £15,000. In 2018, that chequered past mobilised the GKN workers, their union, Unite, and...

Written Answers — Home Office: Children: Exploitation (15 Apr 2021)

Victoria Atkins: ...Act 2015 to ensure it continues to be world leading as the forms of modern slavery and the nature of exploitation continue to evolve. It is for this reason, in 2018, the Government commissioned Frank Field, Maria Miller MP and Baroness Butler-Sloss to lead an independent review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The Review’s purpose was to report on the operation and effectiveness of the...

STEM Subjects: Science and Discovery Centres — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (24 Mar 2021)

Matt Western: ...the simple question of why. The UK has a proud history of science and innovation, though many scientific discoveries, including penicillin by the Scot Alexander Fleming and the structure of DNA by Franklin, Crick and Watson. UK inventions include Stephenson’s steam engine, as we heard from my hon. Friend the Member for York Central; the television, by another great Scot, John Logie...

Scottish Parliament: Drug Deaths and Harms (18 Mar 2021)

Alison Johnstone: I confirm the Scottish Greens’ support for the Government motion, with its frank admission of failure with regard to drug deaths. That is, indeed, “a mark of shame” on our nation. It is vital that we build consensus around a national commitment to deal with drug deaths. We are in an emergency. In that spirit, we will support the Labour and Lib Dem amendments, too. However, I must...

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (10 Mar 2021)

Julian Knight: ..., though, that the Treasury is perhaps less familiar with the intricacies of their work than with other more regulated businesses and industries such as financial services. It also means, to be frank, that there is less knowledge about how best to support them as we recover. Before the pandemic, Britain’s DCMS sectors were some of the fastest growing, with the creative industries growing...

Written Answers — Home Office: Modern Slavery Act 2015 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...Slavery Act 2015, the first legislation of its kind. In July 2018, the Government commissioned an Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 led by Baroness Butler-Sloss, the then Rt. Hon. Frank Field and the Rt. Hon. Maria Miller MP. The Review considered where the Act is working well and where implementation can be strengthened. The final Review made 80 recommendations across four...
