Official Development Assistance - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...solutions that protect and restore nature. I hope that helps. Let me set out how we will use ODA, a subject which was certainly raised by the noble Lord, Lord McConnell.

This means protecting ODA for those in the poorest countries,...

Afghanistan: Independent Inquiry (15 Dec 2022)

Bob Blackman: I commend my right hon. Friend for updating the House on this inquiry. Obviously, the overseas operations Act helped to break the cycle of investigating soldiers for historic claims, but it maintained the position that, where there is compelling evidence against individuals, action can be taken.

I turn first to Amendment 126, which would require the College of Policing to publish guidance consolidating the public order authorised professional practice and NPCC and college operational advice for public order policing.

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...timeframe. It said that the introduction of voter ID needs to be “accessible, secure and workable” and that those important considerations “may not be fully met” when this new principle is operated.

Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill: New Clause 1 - Impact Assessment (12 Dec 2022)

Sarah Green: ...Chambers of Commerce. I welcome the inclusion of a chapter dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises in both deals, but this is a challenging time to run a small business.

When I surveyed small business...

John Healey: ...in other Departments that too often they use our armed forces to bail out their Departments’ failings, especially when he is making further deep cuts to the Army?

Backbench Business: International Human Rights Day — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (8 Dec 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: .... I have mentioned the wars, but we also need to think about the huge volume of arms sales that we are promoting and the way in which our embassies around the world have been turned into commercial operations for British companies in order to improve British exports. I can understand the need for that, but not at the expense of taking away the human rights advisers or, indeed, of no longer...

Seasonal Worker Visas: Sponsorship Certificates (8 Dec 2022)

Robert Jenrick: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for those points. The scheme is broadly operating as it is designed to, which is shown by the fact that about 1,400 certificates are unused as of today’s date. So the overall quota of 40,000 places a year is approximately the right number. We are, as ever, discussing with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs whether that quota should remain...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Report: Amendment 29 (7 Dec 2022)

Baroness Barran: ...independence of the role. I turn to the proposed additional reporting requirements to Parliament in Amendment 29.

British Indian Ocean Territory: Sovereignty — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (7 Dec 2022)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: ...the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 in the usual way.

Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 17 - Reporting requirements (7 Dec 2022)

Vicky Ford: ...also problems in just getting the day-to-day work done. The Bill Committee heard evidence from industry about how the FCA is sometimes taking nine months to authorise a chief executive coming from overseas to operate in the UK. That is just not good enough. I have also been told that not a single new insurance company has been set up in the UK in the last 15 years. Surely that is a clear...
