Scottish Parliament: Men’s Sheds (21 Mar 2019)

Elaine Smith: Presiding Officer, I apologise to you and to Liam McArthur for my pill alarm going off during Mr McArthur’s contribution. I, too, thank Christine Grahame for lodging the motion and securing the debate on this interesting subject. I do not know whether Ken Hughes has already bought his cargo shorts; I suppose that we can ask him later, at his retiral do. Men’s sheds have been in Scotland...

International Women’S Day (7 Mar 2019)

Stella Creasy: Parkland, Florida, who inspired us in February by fighting for gun control against President Trump, and to Professor Stephanie Page, who in March announced the details of the male contraceptive pill that she has finally been able to develop. I pay tribute to Caroline Criado-Perez, who finally got us a statue of a woman in Parliament Square—Millicent Fawcett—and to Beyoncé for...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) (No. 2) Bill: Issue of sum out of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending 31 March 2019 and appropriation of that sum (5 Mar 2019)

Tony Lloyd: ...the experiences of the Sarah Ewarts of this world, to prevent a mother facing potential criminalisation because she wants to help her daughter, to help women who try to obtain the morning-after pill and are under investigation by the PSNI, and to move our world forward and put those in Northern Ireland in the same position as I would expect for my own constituents.

Eating Disorders Awareness Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (27 Feb 2019)

Bill Grant: .... I understand from the news that only this week, concerns were expressed by Food Standards Scotland that DNP—dinitrophenol, an industrial chemical—is being illegally marketed as a slimming pill, which FSS considers to be potentially lethal. It is still available to purchase on the internet, and we as a Government need to rein in social media platforms that permit, condone, or have a...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology: Frozen Eggs Storage - Question (20 Feb 2019)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, is this not just a case of discrimination? Practically every man in this room could still father a child, but none of the women could. This is very similar to when the pill was brought into our lives. This is about extending women’s rights to their fertility, women’s rights to work and women’s rights to plan their lives. As we have heard from many noble Lords, the science is...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

Lord Lansley: ...—the Government have an obligation to do that and Amendment 20 says we should do that—we can do so only on the basis of the law as it is. If this legislation were to have such a poison pill added to it, I am afraid that it would make it impossible for civil servants to give the degree of reassurance that we should be giving people.

Health and Social Care: Toxic Air and Children’s Health (19 Feb 2019)

Andrew Bridgen: Will the Minister join me in welcoming the work of UK researchers to develop a new protocol for managing asthma, such as a pill to reduce the number of attacks by targeting airway muscles, developed in partnership with researchers in Canada?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: HIV Infection: Preventive Medicine (7 Feb 2019)

Lord Storey: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to extend access to the Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis pill.

Takeovers (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...SI itself or the Explanatory Memorandum to confirm whether this statutory instrument will continue in the event that there is no no deal. As mentioned in the last debate, I wonder where the poison pill lies in this. What are the circumstances under which elements of this SI will fall away, and how will that be achieved? Does it require a further debate and discussion? Does it require a new...

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Lord Beith: repealed if there is any kind of deal. We ought to know what we are doing, and in this case we are perhaps being asked to pass a statutory instrument which does not within it contain the suicide pill which it would require to cope with the situation in which there was a deal. That has implications for the timetable and for all the things we have to do before 29 March, one of which...

Sport, Recreation and the Arts - Motion to Take Note (19 Dec 2018)

Lord Parekh: ...just to this sport or that sport but to sport in general. It is conducive to physical well-being. We all know that. Today’s newspapers talk about how 20 minutes of exercise can do far more than a pill to control your blood pressure. More importantly, it creates invisible benefits by providing a common space, a common subject of conversation. A lot of people will say, “Are you a...

Provisional Local Government Finance Settlement - Statement (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Greaves: ...and local authority spending to be the case for the district councils in east Lancashire. They are in a much worse position. Does the Minister accept that, while there is a bit of sugar on the pill this year, we are in the middle of a three-year settlement where councils all had to sign on the dotted line to say that they agree to it, while it is really asking them whether they want to...

HIV and World AIDS Day (29 Nov 2018)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: the wrong direction, with £700 million of cuts to public health having been made between 2014 and 2017. We are not investing in the universal roll-out of PrEP—Pre-exposure prophylaxis—the pill that prevents HIV. So it is important for me politically to speak out. Finally, I wanted to be able to stand here in this place and say to those who are living with HIV that their status does...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

Michael Gove: ...and disadvantages that lie within the draft withdrawal agreement, but it is instructive that the negotiator on behalf of the European Commission, Ms Weyand, felt that she had to sweeten the pill, particularly on fisheries, to get EU nations to sign, because there is an acknowledgment on the part of EU nations that UK negotiators have safeguarded access to our waters and secured our status...

Drugs Policy — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (23 Oct 2018)

Ronnie Cowan: .... I fully understand why people exposed to the cruelty inflicted on their loved ones by current drugs policy would want to lash out in retribution. If somebody provided one of my loved ones with a pill at a music festival, and that pill killed them, my initial reaction would be to hunt the seller down like a dog and have them strung up. I would be wrong. At the next festival, another...

In Vitro Fertilisation: 40th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (13 Sep 2018)

Baroness Boycott: ..., I was a co-founder the feminist magazine Spare Rib. We were a great deal more worried about not getting pregnant at that point than about getting pregnant. We were right in the early years of the pill, the cap and the coil, and all the extraordinary things to do with contraception rather than conception. None of us had any children and we were woeful in dealing with the issue of how one...

Eating Disorders: Medical Training - Question (12 Sep 2018)

Baroness Boycott: ...areas of diet generally, given the increase in diet-related disease. Some GPs estimate that it accounts for 80% of the people who come through their door, and they obviously cannot just be given a pill. The medical profession in America and, indeed, some individual GPs here are retraining doctors in this vital area, and I would like to know whether the Government are proposing to do...

Trade Bill - Second Reading (11 Sep 2018)

Lord Risby: ...instances, considerable success. I also applaud the Secretary of State for International Trade for his incredible energy and dedication to the task at hand. I can only hope that whatever vitamin pill he takes is made in Britain. He has a strong ministerial team, not least in my noble friend, who brings such immense experience to her role. Her department offers such help and professionalism...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (7 Sep 2018)

Lord Adonis: ...original purpose of the undertakings given by my noble and learned friend Lord Irvine of Lairg during the passage of the 1999 Act. He saw at the time, and we agreed, that this would be a poisoned pill in the composition of the current House of Lords that would make the creation of a democratic House unavoidable. That, alas, has not happened in the last 20 years. I greatly regret it and I...

Northern Ireland: Misoprostol - Question (5 Sep 2018)

Baroness Thornton: ...and it is completely disappointing, particularly for the women of Northern Ireland. I congratulate the Government on the fact that after Christmas women in England will be able to take the abortion pill Misoprostol at home; I congratulate the Government on taking that decision. Meanwhile, however, in Northern Ireland women are forced online to purchase these pills. They risk prosecution,...
