Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (25 Apr 2023)

Steve Barclay: ...take industrial action within the law, but equally the law is there to protect patients and NHS staff alike. Following legal advice, NHS Employers and my Department are confident that the proposed strike action by the Royal College of Nursing goes beyond the mandate it secured from its members, which expires on 1 May at midnight. While NHS Employers has sought to resolve the issue through...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (11th Day) (Continued): Amendment 289 (24 Apr 2023)

Lord Harlech: ...balance this priority with other priorities. Requiring, in legislation, that planning must “act in accordance” with plans for nature recovery would hamper the ability of planning authorities to strike this balance. Last month we published the regulations and statutory guidance needed for responsible authorities to begin preparation of local nature recovery strategies. We are now...

Written Answers — Home Office: Passports: Industrial Action (21 Apr 2023)

Robert Jenrick: We are disappointed with the union’s decision to strike.

There are currently no plans to change our guidance which states that it takes up to ten weeks to get a passport.

Asbestos in Workplaces (19 Apr 2023)

Mick Whitley: I congratulate the hon. Member for Loughborough (Jane Hunt) on securing this important debate. It is particularly timely for those constituents of mine who were forced to take strike action in February when their employer, a local social housing provider, was accused of forcing them to handle asbestos in tenants’ homes, a job that they were not properly trained for. Thankfully, that...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 18 - Lifetime allowance charge abolished (19 Apr 2023)

Aaron Bell: his response, because he had to go away and first check with some other people what the Labour policy was going to be, but Labour later came out against the policy, and has tabled amendments to strike the clauses entirely and replace them with new clauses, which I am sure the Government will oppose. To address the point about progressiveness, it is absolutely asinine to assume that the...

Chinese Police Stations in UK (19 Apr 2023)

Alicia Kearns: stage. [Interruption.] I hope the Minister is listening; does he wish to respond already? This is a transnational crisis, and I have just met with Vahid Beheshti, who is on day 56 of hunger strike outside the Foreign Office because of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps failing to be proscribed, despite the promise to do so. When will the Home Office close the IRGC cut-outs...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Meat: Imports (19 Apr 2023)

Mark Spencer: ...) ON 05 April 2023. In developing the TOM, we have designed a modern border with a simplified, effective, risk-based system of controls based on current assessments of risks to biosecurity. It will strike the appropriate balance between protecting the UK’s public health, food supply chains and natural environment, and setting a proportionate controls regime. The TOM will operate a more...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Section 35 Order (19 Apr 2023)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...following the memorandum of understanding, the secretary of state used the section 35 power exactly as even Conservative MPs feared would happen at the time of the 1998 act—as an absolute veto to strike down any devolved legislation passed by a majority of this Parliament that he dislikes, without discussion and based on political, not policy, judgment. Immediately after receiving Mr...

Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 2023)

David Davis: It seems clear that the junior doctors’ strike is causing a serious risk of loss of life, and certainly causing harm and pain to thousands of our constituents. The first line of the Hippocratic oath is “First, do no harm”. When does the Prime Minister think the British Medical Association abandoned this central tenet of its profession?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 207 (18 Apr 2023)

Earl Howe: ...local authorities are doing. What we do not want to do—and I hope the noble Baroness agrees—is to get perilously close to a one-size-fits-all, top-down target mode of acting. We are trying to strike a balance between showing local authorities how to do the job that they are there to do and have been elected to do, while at the same time not being guilty of dictating or second-guessing...

Parish and Town Council Precepts (18 Apr 2023)

David Morris: chaos and financial transactions were being done on the back of event flyers. Mr Trevaskis was also a director of a company called the Cheshire Clerk Ltd. That company has had an application to strike it off, yet it has been stopped from being struck off, as somebody made a complaint to the Companies House registrar in January 2022. He has not disclosed that as an interest as a...

Farming on Dartmoor — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2023)

Luke Pollard: ...outcomes are clearly specified. Changes hitting hard, without much notice, do not deliver that. Finally, no debate about Dartmoor can pass without wild camping being mentioned briefly. We need to strike a balance, of which wild camping is a part. Sometimes, there is a simple headline to be got, but we need to see a proper balance, proper relationships and proper certainty restored. I am...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 5 - Charge and main rate for financial year 2024 (18 Apr 2023)

Victoria Atkins: ...fair to have a spectrum of corporation tax thresholds between 19% and 25% as businesses grow and accrue profits, but I fully admit that does not make it simple. The balance the Government have to strike is where there might be tension between fairness and simplicity. Of course, we always want to ensure that fairness prevails. I take my right hon. Friend’s point about complexity, but I...

Top Secret Document Leaks (18 Apr 2023)

James Heappey: ...the information age, when it is about getting ahead of the other side’s narrative, is that it is very useful to be able to think quickly about the information we have. There is thus a balance to strike between being overly compartmentalised and being in a position where people can be well informed and quickly make decisions in a way that meets the speed of relevance in modern...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS Industrial Action Update (18 Apr 2023)

Steve Barclay: Yesterday evening NHS England published data about the impact of a 96-hour strike by junior doctors from 0700 on Tuesday 11 April to 0659 on Saturday 15 April. It is regrettable that the BMA’s Junior Doctors Committee, HCSA, and BDA hospital trainees chose to cause maximum disruption to NHS services by staging such a long walk out with no national derogations immediately after the Easter...

Scottish Parliament: Government Priorities for Scotland (18 Apr 2023)

...aim. We will also continue to ensure that staff in our health and care services are valued and fairly paid. As things stand, Scotland is the only part of the UK in which no NHS worker has gone on strike during the past year. I am proud of and grateful for that. The Scottish Government will soon enter talks with junior doctors in the hope of arriving at a fair settlement for them. As well...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living and Child Poverty (18 Apr 2023)

Pauline McNeill: ...has said that UK workers are on course for two decades of lost pay. They have suffered the longest pay squeeze in all our lifetimes, so it should be no surprise that so many workers have been on strike in so many sectors in order to fight for fair pay and working conditions in the middle of a crisis, and in order to recoup their huge loss of pay over those years. As the STUC has its annual...

Junior Doctors’ Strikes - Commons Urgent Question (17 Apr 2023)

Lord Markham: ...sure that life is protected. It is a regret that the BMA junior doctors have not done that in this instance, and that the RCN is saying right now that it is not considering derogations in its new strike. I hope that this position will change. I do not think anyone in this Chamber would want to see life threatened in this way. I know that we are doing everything we can on our end—as I...

NHS Strikes (17 Apr 2023)

Wes Streeting: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care if he will make a statement on the impact of the junior doctors’ strikes and what steps he is taking to prevent further strike action in the NHS.
