Conduct of the Right Hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (30 Nov 2021)

Ian Blackford: ...Government in the early 1990s, but even that comparison fails to properly get to the scale of corruption that has occurred, much of it in plain sight. The difference between this Prime Minister and John Major was that Major took action to address the sleaze and corruption. This Prime Minister is at the centre of the sleaze and corruption—he is orchestrating much of it. I am afraid...

UK-EU Fisheries Allocations — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (30 Nov 2021)

Deidre Brock: ...a fisheries debate in this House and not have to honour any loss of life in the previous year. That will not happen by itself or by accident. It will be as a result of innovative fishermen such as John Clark, from Banff, who worked tirelessly on the design of his new vessel, Reliance III, with the shipyard at Parkol, to place crew safety at the heart of the deck design. A continuous safety...

Scottish Parliament: Storm Arwen (Response) (30 Nov 2021)

John Swinney: .... Scottish Water is working at pace to restore water supplies and provide all those affected with alternative supplies of drinking water. Around 1,500 properties are still without a water supply, mainly across the Deeside area, with work being hampered by the loss of power and difficulty in accessing some sites due to on-going weather conditions or blocked access routes. Telecoms providers...

Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill - Second Reading (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Caine: ...of Basildon. She, along with many other noble Lords, highlighted the importance of the institutions established under the Belfast/Good Friday agreement. As I outlined in my opening speech, I remain very personally committed to those institutions. I have worked in the Northern Ireland Office during periods of direct rule, which I have to say were very unsatisfactory, as has the noble...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 62 - Pharmaceutical services: remuneration in respect of vaccines etc (23 Nov 2021)

John Baron: ...have other countries, and we are not closing the gap. A more fundamental change is required. Back in 2009, when I first became its chairman, the APPG conducted a major inquiry which showed that the main reason our survival rates lagged behind others was not that the NHS was any worse than other healthcare systems at treating cancer once it was detected, but that it was not as good at...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Criminal Justice (Committal Reform) Bill: Consideration Stage (23 Nov 2021)

Naomi Long: ...to speak to my amendment, amendment No 3. That is a relatively minor technical amendment to clause 4(9)(c) of the Bill, which will ensure that the ability to apply for a legal aid certificate remains relatively consistent with current practice. Legal aid certificates are generally requested in the Magistrates' Court. However, there are some occasions when that will also happen in the Crown...

Black Friday: Financial Products — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (23 Nov 2021)

John Glen: ...appropriately. It is important to understand the nature of the risks. We should acknowledge that the use of buy now, pay later is growing rapidly: in fact, the number of transactions from the main providers using buy now, pay later more than tripled in 2020. That said, buy now, pay later is still estimated to have amounted to only 2% to 3% of the consumer credit market last year, and a...

Gurkha Pensions — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (22 Nov 2021)

John Martin McDonnell: I am sorry to rudely interrupt the hon. Gentleman again. I apologise to you as well, Dr Huq. This is a fleeting visit; I am trying to be here and in the main Chamber at the same time, but I have not quite mastered that yet. Before I left, the hon. Gentleman raised the key issue for me and my constituents: the poverty Gurkhas have been thrust into as a result of, to be frank, an act of gross...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Hospital Parking Charges Bill: Second Stage (22 Nov 2021)

Paula Bradshaw: ..., perhaps in many instances, reliant on taxis to get to and from work, are not helped at all by the legislation and, in effect, end up subsidising those with cars. Of course, that brings us to the main issue with the legislation: prohibiting fee-paying car parks near hospitals will simply lead to them being used for other purposes. At the Health Committee, I want us to look at the costs of...

House of Lords: Appointments Process - Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2021)

Viscount Waverley: ...should be reviewed periodically to ensure that we continue being a force for good and a resource central to our democracy. When addressing the Cross Benches as Prime Minister once upon a time, Sir John Major was clear that it should be reform from within and not have reform imposed. He had the integrity of your Lordships’ House in mind. The appointments process, our numbers and how to...

Scottish Parliament: MSP Annual Reports (18 Nov 2021)

John Mason: If the main reason is that it is a long-standing decision, I do not accept that every long-standing decision is necessarily the correct one. It seems to me that three months is an excessively long period to stop members—especially, perhaps, new members—issuing important annual reports. Parliament stopped six weeks before the election last year, for example. Six weeks seems to me to be a...

Stop and Search: West Midlands — [Christina Rees in the Chair] (17 Nov 2021)

Khalid Mahmood: ...process. We delivered that because we all got over it together. We did the same recently, as my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey) said earlier, with the murder of Dea-John, where we got the churches, the community and the police together and we responded very quickly. My hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Preet Kaur Gill) also joined us in that...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Investment Bank (16 Nov 2021)

Elizabeth Smith: ...completely clear. I think the cabinet secretary would admit that there was some dubiety even within the ranks of the Scottish National Party between 2014 and 2016 about what that purpose should be. John Swinney talked about whether we should build on the existing bank and said that there would not be a new one. We know that there were concerns last year, which I think came out in response...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Education: School-starting Age: Flexibility (15 Nov 2021)

Michelle McIlveen: I thank the Member for her question. She will be aware that that has been a priority for me. I was very supportive of the concept when it was brought forward by John O'Dowd during his tenure as Minister. I am delighted that the public consultation on the deferral of school-starting age began last week on 9 November. It will close on Tuesday 4 January. I will then bring forward a final policy...

EU Relations - Statement (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Newby: ...that, I have to accept, the Minister excels at. He says that the trade and co-operation agreement is working well. According to the OBR, its effect is that our GDP will be 4% lower than if we had remained in the EU, so I suppose we should be very grateful that it is not working badly. Underlying all the issues to which the Statement refers are two substantive problems for the Government....

School-based Counselling Services (9 Nov 2021)

Tulip Siddiq: ...have to be part of the solution, but fixing the crisis in children and young people’s mental health cannot just be left to schools, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) said. Even with the support and resources that we would provide if we were in government, we would have to look at the support provided by CAMHS and other NHS services as well, and...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Review of the Adequacy and Effectiveness of the Statement of Entitlements for an Official Opposition at the Northern Ireland Assembly (9 Nov 2021)

Peter Weir: ...on their practical implementation. There are just two fairly minor exceptions regarding recommendations 6 and 14, which I will come to in a moment. The 18 review recommendations fall under three main groupings. The first group comprises recommendations 1 to 5, which are of a general nature. The Committee commends those five recommendations for formal adoption by the Assembly. In...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (9 Nov 2021)

Douglas Ross: ...we have reached a new milestone with the Covid booster jag. I encourage everyone who is able to do so to take it up as soon as possible. The vaccine has been immensely successful and should be our main weapon against the virus. Considering reintroducing restrictions at this stage in the pandemic, when we have a vaccine that 4.3 million Scots have received, is the wrong approach. Today,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Education (Curriculum) (CPR and AED) Bill: Second Stage (8 Nov 2021)

Daniel McCrossan: ...in that way. It is concerning that research conducted by the Resuscitation Council shows that only half of people would intervene if they came across someone suffering a cardiac arrest. That is mainly due to a lack of confidence in administering the life-saving aid. That touches on the point that I made. Thankfully, throughout our communities — Robin Newton touched on this — there has...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: Launch of the London Capital & Finance Compensation Scheme - Contingencies Fund Advance (3 Nov 2021)

John Glen: ....uk/LCF-compensation-scheme The Compensation (London Capital & Finance plc and Fraud Compensation Fund) Act received Royal Assent on 20 October 2021 but provision for this was not included in the Main Estimate for HM Treasury at the start of the financial year. In accordance with normal procedures, HM Treasury will therefore be using a Contingencies Fund advance to enable bondholders’...
