Jim Shannon: ...Emma Little Pengelly) and those further afield. The advantage of the city deal is that we in Strangford, North Down, East Antrim and South Antrim will also get some of the benefit, because it will ripple out to the towns and villages.

Poverty: Metrics - Question for Short Debate (21 Jan 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: ...been struck by how central the experience of poverty is to so many of the big social issues we debate.

Lord Wilson of Dinton: ...-European press—fairly or unfairly, usually unfairly—to blame Brussels. Those groups were disappointed, perhaps by austerity or the financial crisis.

Plastic: Environmental Threat and Recycling - Motion to Take Note (19 Dec 2018)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: ...costs more to recycle old plastic than to make new.

Delegated Legislation (Committees): Scotland’s Foreign Policy Footprint (3 Dec 2018)

Brendan O'Hara: ...Member for North East Fife rightly made the case for how important big national organisations are, but we should never, ever lose sight of how important the action of an individual can be, and the ripple effect of someone taking the time to get involved and saying they want change. Fiona is not alone in that. Across Argyll and Bute, there are many local organisations, and I single out the...

Backbench Business (29 Nov 2018)

Marion Fellows: constituency of Motherwell and Wishaw in the past year. As a community we felt helpless, frustrated and confused, and have looked for someone to blame.

Dan Jarvis: ...regard. If we are to enable the right level of devolution to take place, we need to abandon an economic and political model in which the only hope is for wealth to trickle down and prosperity to ripple out.

The community was left with nothing and there has been a huge destruction of public trust in the process, which unfortunately will have ripple effects across other communities.

Family Hubs (24 Jul 2018)

Fiona Bruce: ...difference—the transformative impact —that could be made nationwide in just a few years by having a family hub in every community.

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Jul 2018) anecdotal—you made the comment about sentencing—there was significant feedback from the Gun Trade Association to me personally that the sentencing in relation to the Edmunds case had sent a ripple around firearms dealers.
