Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (8 Jun 2022)

Baroness Berridge: ...what I stepped into in the department following my noble friend Lord Agnew. We were left with a hard rump of cases. One thing that I do not think has been mentioned so far—and I approach this mainly as a lawyer—is the nature of the vehicle that is the multi-academy trust. It is a charitable company, but of course there were so many of them that the regulation from the Charity...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (8 Jun 2022)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...continues to educate me in my quest for lifelong learning. A recent programme of his was about a philosopher of whom, I must admit, I had never heard—that is probably my ignorance—a man called John Amos Comenius. He was a “philosopher, pedagogue and theologian who is considered the father of modern education”. What he proposed was fascinating—and bear in mind that we are talking...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Priorities (8 Jun 2022)

Paul Sweeney: ...for Scotland. There are innumerable opportunities to outline that. Instead of having multinational utilities, the Scottish Government and councils could be making big, bold moves to aim to be the main supplier of heating to all households and businesses in Scotland, with a mass roll-out of publicly owned and developed district heating networks. There is no state entrepreneurship. That is...

Address to Her Majesty: Platinum Jubilee (26 May 2022)

Jane Hunt: ..., including on 28 June 1996, when she came to open the new English and drama building at Loughborough Grammar School; it was named the Queen’s Building in her honour. The school’s deputy head, John Weitzel, shared this anecdote with me: “The Queen arrived in pouring rain to be greeted by the 2,000 children of the Loughborough Schools’ Foundation. After formally opening the new...

Foreign Lobbying — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (25 May 2022)

Martin Docherty: ...rules for those lobbying on behalf of foreign Governments. The evidence—which the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) has alluded to on many occasions, not only in Westminster Hall but in the main Chamber—that it has damaged the fabric of our society, and of the national security risk, has been clear. I fully expect the Minister to rise to their feet, acknowledge the issue and the...

FCDO Diplomatic Staff: Funding Levels — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (24 May 2022)

Valerie Vaz: ...aid and for development; those are two separate things. Development can mean sharing experience, such as what is the best local crop to grow to feed people, rather than to service a debt. My next main theme is the funding of outside organisations. We are an outward-looking nation—that is what we want to be—and we need to think again about cuts to outside organisations that have...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Clothing and Food (23 May 2022)

The Politics of Polling (Liaison Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 May 2022)

Lord Rennard: ...on the Select Committee on Political Polling and Digital Media, which met in the 2017-19 Session, and also to provide evidence to the Liaison Committee, which reviewed its work in 2020. One of the main issues we addressed was whether, as in some countries, there should be an attempt to ban the publication of opinion polls for some days before polling day. Polls are, of course, sometimes...

NATO and International Security (19 May 2022)

John Baron: ...forward to continuing that discussion with the policy unit at No. 10 and, indeed, with the Prime Minister. In the few minutes that are left to me, it may be helpful if I give a brief summary of the main themes that emerged from the report. There was a wide consensus that the integrated review—and perhaps more importantly, the associated documents that followed it, such as the Defence...

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...when inflation is predicted to reach 10%; and sat back as oil and gas companies sit on record profits while people struggle to pay their bills. It is clear to everyone—even the CBI and Sir John Major —that the Government must issue an emergency Budget. That means increasing universal credit, legacy benefits and state pensions in line with actual inflation; scrapping the punitive...

Scottish Parliament: Carbon Neutral Islands (17 May 2022)

Jenni Minto: ...of Portnahaven and Port Wemyss boast a magnificent Stevenson lighthouse and a Telford church and manse. The Museum of Islay Life holds a Campbell-Stokes recorder, which was invented by Islay man John Francis Campbell in 1853 to record sunshine. Those great Scots rose to the challenges of previous generations and islanders continue to rise to the challenges of climate change. As the cabinet...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: ...low, so the Government need to deliver on their promise in the Queen’s Speech to make the streets safer. Given this commitment, there is one issue I want to raise. I want to speak about Dea-John Reid, a 14 year- old lad from Birmingham who was killed by a gang in the city last year. What can the Government do to secure justice for him and his family? It is a shocking story. One evening...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Recovery and Reform) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (12 May 2022)

Alex Rowley: In closing today’s debate for Labour, I restate the point that I made to John Swinney in committee, which is that, with the co-operation of the Greens, the SNP can force this legislation through but that, if it does so, we will end up with another piece of poor legislation that will, without doubt, remove powers from this Parliament and place them in the hands of the Executive. I have...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

John Redwood: ...revisit rules and laws to promote better transport, to deal with difficulties in housing and planning, and to pursue a course of greater self-sufficiency in energy. However, I want to concentrate mainly on the economic conditions that they will need over the next two years in order to make a success of this legislative programme. Legislation takes us only a little way. What we are trying...

Scottish Parliament: Fireworks and Pyrotechnic Articles (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (3 May 2022)

John Mason: I am sure that Martin Whitfield is right about that. My main argument is that there would be problems along the way, and I am mentioning some of them, although I support the overall aims of the bill. Tightening things up will improve things. In paragraph 204, the committee suggests that there might be local flexibility for “local celebrations around sporting successes”. To push that to...

John Glen: ...– addressing the information gaps in the market and ensuring a flow of decision-useful information on sustainability factors from corporates to financial market participants.

Phase two in the Roadmap is...

Elections Bill (27 Apr 2022)

John Martin McDonnell: ...to bring together existing practices in one piece of legislation, and to look at new challenges that they faced. Those challenges are not reflected in the Bill. On the amendments, one of the main concerns about the operation of the Electoral Commission that the Government seem to identify is that it needs more direction by way of a Government ministerial statement. That was not part of...

Written Answers — Treasury: Banks: Environment Protection (26 Apr 2022)

John Glen: ...the information gaps in the market and ensuring a flow of decision-useful information on environmental sustainability from corporates to financial market participants, including banks. This is the main aim of SDR: to increase transparency for market participants to ensure they have the information they need to factor sustainability into their investment decisions. Phase two in the...

Scottish Parliament: Antimicrobial Resistance (21 Apr 2022)

John Mason: I am happy to confess that the subject is not my main area of expertise, either from my professional background or since I came to the Parliament. However, I did first come across the issue when I lived in Nepal in the 1980s, in relation to both leprosy and TB. I am focusing on the ‘world’ aspect that is mentioned in the motion and I welcome the cabinet secretary’s mention of Ghana in...

Drug Crime (20 Apr 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...Aberconwy (Robin Millar) referred to westerns. I am a wee few years older than the hon. Gentleman. The great thing about a western on a Sunday afternoon was that the good guys were Gary Cooper and John Wayne, they always beat the baddies, they did it in an hour and a half, and they walked off with the woman at the end. It was always great, but life is not like that, as we know. In Keighley...
