Homes: Affordability - Motion to Take Note (28 Oct 2021)

Lord Bird: ..., we are still in an emergency but are trying to pretend that we are in a recovery? On Monday of this week, I was on a TV programme that dealt with all of these issues, among other things.

Reopening Local Police Stations — [Yvonne Fovargue in the Chair] (27 Oct 2021)

Richard Drax: ..., during three tours in Northern Ireland between 1978 and 1987, I saw the overwhelming benefits of what we call human intelligence.

The mass of...

Social Security (Up-rating of Benefits) Bill - Committee: Amendment 9 (26 Oct 2021)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...s reply to him? Olivier de Schutter clearly did not see the original temporary nature of the uplift—repeatedly cited in justification—as a conclusive argument for withdrawing it now. The other main argument deployed by Ministers has been that the priority is to get people into reasonably paid work, as if that and maintaining the uplift are somehow alternatives between which we have to...

Lord Callanan: ...and would be impactful. The noble Lords, Lord Bilimoria and Lord Sikka, both mentioned the Parker review, which was set up in late 2015 and published its recommendations in October 2017, the main target being to ensure that all FTSE 100 companies have at least one person from an ethnic minority background on their board by the end of 2021, and for the FTSE 250 to do it by 2024.

John O'Dowd: ...agreements are honoured by all in the Chamber.

That...

Trevor Clarke: ..., of course, when police come into contact with individuals whom they will never meet. Therefore, there are issues with how the ombudsman does her job. This would have shone a light on that. John Blair also indicated that he, amongst others, was a member of the Policing Board. There are probably more Policing Board members here than anything else. That is just the nature of where we are....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Sanitary and Phytosanitary Standards: Bespoke Agreement (4 Oct 2021)

John Blair: ...to article 16 and to the actions taken and proposals made by my party in the previous months and years. The protocol is not without its challenges. Sanitary and phytosanitary checks constitute the main challenge for the Northern Ireland protocol. Therefore, negotiating a bespoke UK-EU veterinary agreement must be a priority.

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 Vaccination Certification Scheme (29 Sep 2021)

John Mason: ...certificates. Most of those members have colleagues in similar parties across Europe—on the left, on the right and in the centre—who support such schemes. Scotland is very much in the European main stream in having such certificates. In many ways, the odd one out is England but, once again, we see a great fear among the Conservatives in the Scottish Parliament of being different from...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Irish State Collusion (28 Sep 2021)

Diane Dodds: ...why action by the Irish Government should depend on wider agreement with the United Kingdom. Either that Administration believe in upholding the rule of law, or they do not.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Small-Scale Green Energy Bill: Second Stage (28 Sep 2021)

John Blair: I will follow my colleague Stewart Dickson's earlier comments, which focused mainly on economic themes, and I will concentrate on the Bill's — indeed, the debate's — environmental aspects. To tackle the climate emergency and protect the environment for ourselves and future generations, we must leave behind the old ways of producing electricity. Northern Ireland has the potential and the...

John Martin McDonnell: ...area, where an element of mediation might resolve most of the problems. Previous progressive equalities legislation that some people have initially opposed has not involved heavy sanctions. In the main, the results have been resolution and progress through a process of education, engagement, mediation and resolution. I think the rush towards sanction will undermine the ability to mediate.

Scottish Parliament: ScotRail (22 Sep 2021)

John Mason: ...some way. For example, we could increase fares, increase the public subsidy by cutting the national health service budget or trim services to better match demand. I think that those are the three main options that we have. I hope that Labour, in particular, will seriously engage in that debate. It is easy to say that we want more services, increased pay and reduced fares, but, sadly, the...

LGBTQ+ Afghan Refugees (21 Sep 2021)

John Nicolson: ...a little in reserve for bribes—I have sold my laptop. I received a call from one of my foreign friends who told me that a bus for LGBT+ people was leaving for the airport. When we reached the main gate…we waited for seven hours. The heat was appalling, and we only had sips of water to drink.” His long wait was in vain. He could not get into the airport. The bus of desperate gay...

Mike Nesbitt: ...were — change dramatically on occasion. Think of Gutenberg and the printing press in the 15th century, Alexander Graham Bell with the telephone and Marconi with the radio in the 19th century, and John Logie Baird with television in the 20th century. Also in the 20th century came probably the most single dramatic change of all: Tim Berners-Lee's invention of the internet. If we are...
