Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2023)

Dominic Raab: The right hon. Lady ignores the impact on the court backlog of the pandemic or, indeed, the Criminal Bar Association strike. Let me tell her what we are doing. We have quadrupled funding for victims since 2010—quadrupled the funding provided by the last Labour Government. We launched the 24/7 support line, so that when those victims of that appalling crime come forward, they get the support...

P&O Ferries Redundancies (28 Mar 2023)

Ian Lavery: ...working regularly from a UK port, regardless of nationality or the flag of the vessel? Will the Minister make absolutely sure that the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill does not strike out these minimal protections for seafarers in the 1992 Act? I return to the shocking decision of the Insolvency Service not to pursue criminal damages and charges against P&O Ferries, effectively...

Ports and Airports: Queues - Question (28 Mar 2023)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, it was impossible not to notice what an efficient job members of the Armed Forces did when they replaced members of Border Force during the recent strike period.

The MACA—military aid to the civil...

Strip Searching of Children (28 Mar 2023)

Sarah Dines: ...Children’s Commissioner has looked at very carefully, and so will the Government. I can give a commitment that the Government will be looking at this very important issue.

Justice: Topical Questions (28 Mar 2023)

Stuart Andrew: ...seeker, or discounting a job application simply because the applicant is disabled could amount to direct disability discrimination under the Act. However, the 2010 Act also recognises the need to strike a balance between the needs of disabled employees and the circumstances of their employers. What is ‘reasonable’ will therefore vary from one employer to another because of factors such...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill (27 Mar 2023)

Lord Johnson of Lainston: The sectors in the Strikes Bill broadly stem from the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, as amended by the Trade Union Act 2016, as they have long been recognised as important for society to function effectively. Strike action in education services has the potential for far reaching consequences for members of the public, for example children and young people who can...

Lord Murray of Blidworth: ...Act 2016, which have long been recognised as being important for society to function effectively.

Police staff across the country make an exceptional contribution to policing and we are grateful for the professionalism and dedication they...

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 37 (23 Mar 2023)

Lord Prentis of Leeds: ...of this group of amendments, particularly Amendments 42 and 44, which, if agreed, would remove the unfettered power of the Secretary of State to amend, repeal or revoke primary legislation. The strikes Bill is not a slight tinkering of existing legislation. What the Committee has before it is a far-reaching Bill. It is a draconian Bill which curtails the fundamental right to strike,...

Baroness Chakrabarti: ...not be disciplining their members for not going to work, and that picketing has to remain perfectly lawful, not least because most workers, we hope, or many workers, will still be entitled to go on strike, notwithstanding the minimum service levels and the specific work notices.
