Liaison: Evidence from the Prime Minister - 20 December 2017.
Witnesses: The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Prime Minister
Lord Keen of Elie: ...today, and I share the views and passion of your Lordships’ House for ensuring that victims have access to justice. Another point that was touched on was the importance of early legal advice and being able to engage with people at a point in time when it may be feasible to resolve a dispute or issue without resorting to litigation. We talk about individuals exercising their right of...
Philip Dunne: ...Foundation Trust has been contending with the challenge of safely staffing the special care baby unit over many years, so this situation has not just crept up on it. When the Care Quality Commission visited in May 2015 and rated the trust overall as requiring improvement, inspectors raised serious concerns about its special care baby unit staffing arrangements. Since 2015, the trust...
Steve Brine: ...Minister, the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson), and I are becoming known for the non-partisan way in which we approach some of the issues in our portfolio, and long may that continue. Let me congratulate my right hon. Friend— I also congratulate him on his elevation last week— the Member for Hemel Hempstead (Sir Mike Penning) on securing a further...
Andrew Murrison: ...very apparent to the Libyans. Clearly we need to do so. I very much hope that the Minister takes note of the noble Lord Empey’s private Member’s Bill. It seems to me to have merit, and there may be a way of advancing the issue so as not to conflict with European Union law as long as that applies in the United Kingdom, or more particularly, with United Nations rules, which will...
Grahame Morris: ...to a successful conclusion. I point out to the Minister, with all due respect, that if the maladministration cases are found against the Government, we could be looking at a huge settlement, so it may well be in the Minister’s interests and those of the Government to seek a parliamentary solution. These women, many of whom were in the Gallery today, deserve justice, and we are here...
Thangam Debbonaire: ...Providers to account.” That would be fine if it was happening, but the evidence that the Committee found, and certainly my subjective and selective experience, was that that is not happening consistently. It may well be happening some of the time—I understand from the Committee’s report that there was sometimes evidence of good inspection, or at least good accommodation....
Baroness Healy of Primrose Hill: ...that parent. The report recommended extended visits to allow children to spend time with imprisoned parents in a child-friendly environment. The Government need to be aware of prejudice and discrimination that may affect the fortunes of prisoners’ children. The Children’s Commissioner has begun the vital task of estimating accurately the number of vulnerable children in this...
Thomas Tugendhat: ...in Bangladesh to hear directly from the victims. Because of the testimony that the Committee received, we were able to be clear that the violence against the Rohingya is ethnic cleansing, and that it may also constitute crimes against humanity and even genocide. We are pleased that the Government’s initial equivocation about the term has been clarified, and that the Minister for Asia...
Lord Keen of Elie: My Lords, supervision of offenders needs to be proportionate to the risk they present. In some cases, remote contact may be appropriate for lower-risk offenders who are complying with their orders. However, we recognise that best practice is for probation officers to work with offenders face to face.
Lord Shipley: ..., it was said that there were expected to be 300 suitable local permanent properties by Christmas, yet only 45 households have moved in. Does he have confidence in the local council to deliver, or may it be time for the Government to intervene more directly?
Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, the Government may be looking closely, but they have been looking closely at this issue for a long time with very limited action. When will the Government accept that there is deep anger among taxpayers in this country about the revelations that the rich and powerful are able to get away with aggressive tax avoidance, and that transparency is the best antidote? Will they give a...
Lord Young of Cookham: ...more powers and resources. Half way through the discussions, four of those local authorities withdrew. Those who understand the socio-political dynamics of the north-east and the tribal tensions of the Tyne may understand why—but I do not. The decision for the Government was whether the three remaining local authorities of Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside should go ahead....
Valerie Vaz: ...The amendment brings back to Parliament a final vote on the deal so that the UK Parliament, just like every other Parliament in the EU, can have a say. It enables us to do our job. Mr Speaker, you may have thought that three was the magic number, but actually it is four. Before anything happens to those MPs who voted to bring sovereignty back to Parliament, let us remember that there are...
Alok Sharma: ...sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements. Most areas produce an annual assessment of their position in five year land supply but this position may alter throughout the year as a result of market conditions and challenge at appeal. The Housing White Paper included a proposal to offer greater certainty to local planning authorities,...
John Bercow: Order. I will not take points of order in the middle of Question Time, but I gently say to the Secretary of State that I understand his predicament. A soothing medicament may assist him, and I extend my sympathies, but he must face the House because Members are saying that they cannot hear him. I am sure he would not want to mumble deliberately.
Peter Grant: May I gently remind the Minister, Mr Speaker, that your ruling is that the Department must provide to the Select Committee any impact assessments that have been done? The question from the right hon. Member for East Ham was not about sectoral analysis; he explicitly used the phrase: “Assessing the impact of leaving the European Union”.—[Official Report, 13 December 2017;...
Steven Baker: ...is incumbent on us all to celebrate the agreement we have reached on citizens’ rights and for every one of us, without exception, to send out the message that we value people from wherever they may come.
Paul Blomfield: May I suggest two specific things that the Minister can do? Will he confirm that applications that are not fully signed off at the point at which we depart from the EU in March 2019 will be fully supported for their entire duration? Will he also say that he will put participation in framework programme 9 and successor programmes at the very heart of the ambitions for negotiating our future...
Cat Smith: ...the Speaker's Committee on the Electoral Commission, what steps the Electoral Commission is taking to ensure that people without a fixed address are able to register to vote ahead of the May 2018 Local Elections.
