Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (23 Feb 2022)

John Blair: I rise mainly as a member of the Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee, and, in that role, I am aware of discussion about the DAERA budgetary position — that is, the current position, the position in recent monitoring rounds and what is being projected for DAERA in future proposals. I am also aware that DAERA made a substantive application for £600 million additional funding...

Elections Bill - Second Reading (23 Feb 2022)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...stonewalling in overlong speeches into late-night sittings, as he did on the Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill. He used to be a constitutional, one-nation Conservative. He has now become a Johnsonian populist, contemptuous of parliamentary scrutiny channelling the Prime Minister’s interpretation of the people’s will, as he has told us on several occasions. I remind the...

John Blair: ...reluctance to accept independent oversight, or increased independent oversight, both in the Assembly and, it should be said, at Westminster. Foot-dragging by the UK Government on that issue was the main cause of delay in the implementation of the UK Environment Act, for example. There is an existing, outstanding New Decade, New Approach commitment to have an independent environmental...

Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [Lords]: New Clause 7 - Parliamentary procedure for judicial schemes: transitory provision (22 Feb 2022)

Chris Stephens: ...to their pension schemes; I have been very proud to visit their picket lines and offer my solidarity and support. I wish to raise a couple of issues. I view new clause 1 as a Trojan horse. The main points that I want to raise are my support for the amendments tabled by my good friend the right hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell), and the effects on employees and workers....

Dementia Research in the UK (10 Feb 2022)

Huw Merriman: ...I feel that we have to encourage early diagnosis in a local setting, and we have to take away the stigma of it. That comes back to the point made by the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (John Nicolson) around interacting. There is also a stigma about going to have the tests. I would encourage any colleague of mine to go and have the test, in the same way that I have. It is...

Friends the Members for Leeds North West, for North Tyneside, for Cambridge, for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (9 Feb 2022)

Lord Pannick: ...there have been any cases analogous to the possible cases we are talking about. There is one. The Press Association reported on 8 April 1992, the day before the 1992 general election— won by John Major—that on 7 April, the day before, Mr Justice Macpherson had considered and rejected a judicial review application which was made by a Mr George Barnes, who was seeking to stop the 1992...

Covid-19: Military aid to Civil Authorities (8 Feb 2022)

Chris Loder: ...to discover that the MACA request from the South Western Ambulance Service was fulfilled only to an extremely small extent. That gives me and my constituents great cause for concern. That was mainly as a result of the original request being filtered down and weakened by some civil servants before evaluation. That is a great concern to me as a south-west MP. I have no doubt that difficult...

Yazidi Genocide — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2022)

Bambos Charalambous: ...a genocide. As is well known, between 2014 and 2017 Daesh committed the most heinous atrocities against the Yazidi community in Iraq. In 2016, a UN human rights panel and the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, described the actions of IS, or Daesh, against the Yazidis as constituting genocide. In 2021, a further UN investigative team concluded that there was “clear and convincing...

Caoimhe Archibald: ...leave and pay with the expectation that it would be a minimum provision in ensuring that parents and carers would be supported in the event of a parental bereavement. The Committee focused on two main areas where, it felt, the support and provisions offered by the Bill could be widened and improved. These were the inclusion of miscarriage provision and the allowing for a day-1 right,...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 244 (4 Feb 2022)

Lord Krebs: ...on this, I suggest they read pages 39 to 42 of Henry Dimbleby’s National Food Strategy Part One, where he thoroughly debunks the arguments we have heard. I will read a quote from the report, from John Hegarty, founder of the leading brand agency, Bartle Bogle Hegarty—I gather it created the Audi slogan “Vorsprung durch Technik” and is very well known. He said: “Advertising junk...

Edwin Poots: ...of new policies and to allow impacted stakeholders that have not had an opportunity to voice their opinions to be consulted before such duties are put in place.

Establishing an independent office of climate...

Oil and Gas Producers: Windfall Tax (1 Feb 2022)

Tahir Ali: ..., Hall Green who have expressed serious concern over the affordability of their fuel bills. Many people are now facing a significant cost of living crisis that has been driven, in my view, by two main factors. First, over the last 20 years in the UK, gas prices have nearly tripled; the increase is staggering: 221%. Given the reliance on gas in many households across the country, this...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

John Redwood: ...massive private-led investment in proper broadband, which is what we all need. Could the Secretary of State give guidance to the companies doing it that it is not helpful if they bury cables under main roads, requiring the roads to be dug up again every time they want to improve or mend a cable? Could we not do better, either in ducts or by the side of the road?

Friend the Member for Stockton North (Alex Cunningham) in the debate on the second group of amendments, although I will deal in this group with our concerns...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Discretionary Compensation for Self-isolation) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (20 Jan 2022)

Jim Fairlie: ...at an appropriate time, when the emergency nature of the current deliberations is behind us, the compensation provisions that are contained in the 2008 act should be revisited to ensure that they remain sufficient for the purposes for which they were intended—for isolated examples of self-isolation. That relates to what John Mason said. I, for one, certainly hope that never again in our...

European Court of Human Rights (19 Jan 2022)

John Howell: ...of the proceedings, both for the Court and for the respondent Government. The future of the convention system rests on this, as: “The quality of judges and members of the Registry is essential to maintaining the authority of the Court and therefore also for the future of the Convention mechanism.” I emphasise that it is the quality of the judges that is crucial to the future of the...
