NHS Long-Term Plan: Sewel Convention (18 Jun 2018)

Andrew Bowie: ...to silence the voice of Scotland last week by dividing 11 times on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. I am grateful for the opportunity to give up my evening to talk about important issues. Section 28(7) of the Scotland Act 1998 reads as follows: this Act “does not affect the power of the Parliament of the United Kingdom to make laws for Scotland.” The White Paper,...

Scotland: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Statement (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ..., they did explicitly provide that, in situations of disagreement, the United Kingdom Parliament may be required to legislate without the consent of the devolved legislatures”. It is of course the case that, legally, Section 28(7) of the Scotland Act 1998, “does not affect the power of the Parliament of the United Kingdom to make laws for Scotland”. That is a statement of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

Ian Blackford: ...statement, but I am deeply disappointed by its content. My very quick take on the statement is that it offers a wholly new interpretation—and, indeed, inversion—of the constitutional arrangements. Section 28(7) of the Scotland Act 1998 confirms that Westminster retains its unlimited sovereignty, and arguably it can never relinquish that, but the devolution settlement provides...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Third Reading (13 Jun 2018)

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Duty to publicise fees on third party websites (12 Jun 2018)

Rishi Sunak: Thank you, Mr Sharma, for permission to group these three clauses. I will discuss them briefly in turn. Clause 18 amends section 83 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Section 83 places a duty on letting agents to publicise their fees and information about redress under client money protection schemes in order to provide greater transparency for landlords and tenants. In the Government...

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Jim Shannon: ...to move landwards that will be experienced as erosion.” That was also made clear by the hon. Member for Angus. The report goes on to state that the length of the “strategic road network” that is at risk will increase by 28%—a significant figure. The storms in Northern Ireland have meant that Transport NI has seen its costs rise by some £800,000. In my...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Commons Amendment (6 Jun 2018)

...;Request for continuation of existing arrangements(1) The Secretary of State must make a relevant request to the European Council if neither of conditions 1 and 2 is met at the beginning of the period of 28 days ending with exit day.(2) Condition 1 is that all of the principal international agreements have been signed.(3) Condition 2 is that—(a) one or more of the principal...

Scottish Parliament: Historical Sexual Offences (Pardons and Disregards) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Jun 2018)

Pauline McNeill: ...the age of consent. That really shows us how lax we have been on the question of equality. I will mention another great day in this Parliament that some members will remember. In June 2000, we reversed the section 28 provision that prevented any local authority from funding the promotion of homosexuality. I will never forget that date and that period in our history, because, in some ways,...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Alex Sobel: ...country to set up a committee to aid Jews, Żegota, which provided food, shelter, medical care, money and false documents to Jews.

In particular, the children’s section of Żegota, led by Irena Sendler, saved 2,500 Jewish children with the co-operation of Polish families, the...

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (30 May 2018)

Peter Chapman: ...brings something to his attention, I think that it is appropriate to acknowledge that in the bill. Amendment 25, which is also in my name, is consequential on amendment 24. As a technical change, it copies the wording in section 8(1) to ensure that relevant authorities do not have to publish explanations for not carrying out island communities impact assessments unless the policy, strategy...

Commonwealth: Discriminatory Legislation - Question (21 May 2018)

Baroness Barker: I thank the Minister for his Answer. Thirty years ago, under Section 28, this Parliament gave the world a blueprint on how to discriminate against LGBT people, so it was extremely welcome to listen to the Prime Minister’s proposal during CHOGM. What is the funding supposed to support? What activities do the Government envisage will be carried out under this programme? Does the Minister...

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May 2018)

Dawn Butler: ...to specialist services. As we have heard, including from the hon. Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt), some of the language used, especially about trans issues, is reminiscent of the language used in defence of section 28 decades ago. On some social media sites there is talk of reintroducing section 28 for trans people; we must not let that happen. Next week marks 30 years since that...

Homosexual Activities: Pardons - Question (17 May 2018)

Lord Cashman: ...buildings on this, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. I cannot help but reflect that the country is a very different place from the one where, 30 years ago, Section 28 was introduced. I know that the noble Baroness is deeply committed—and so, too, are officials—but I am extremely frustrated that, 17 months ago, this House passed provisions to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ..., if it was also applied to Scotland. I suspect it might not go as far as the Scottish Government want because it does not give them the requirement for consent. It says: “A Minister of the Crown will not normally lay a draft,” unless such consent had been given. Perhaps the noble and learned Lord will respond to this. Unlike Section 28(8) of the Scotland Act 1998 and the...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Damien Moore: ...a home of their own, which is something with which we can all agree. According to projections by the Ministry, the number of households in England is expected to grow from 22.7 million in 2014 to 28 million in 2039. There are a number of factors behind that, but I am sure we can agree that it is a significant increase, and we must be mindful of the effects on existing communities. We have...
