Did you mean Theresa many?

European Council (26 Jun 2017)

Theresa May: The right hon. Gentleman talked about a variety of issues. He talked about Parliament and transparency. We have been very clear that there will be a vote in this Parliament on the deal that has been negotiated with the European Union, and we expect that to take place before the European Parliament has an opportunity to vote on it. There will be many opportunities—in legislation and in...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: an EU-Canada free trade agreement. In a BBC radio programme, the lead negotiator for Canada said he does not think that Brexit will happen. During the visit in November, Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought up with Prime Minister Theresa May that movement of people is important for India. We talk about trade deals, but there can be no trade deal without looking at the movement of...

Grenfell Tower (22 Jun 2017)

Theresa May: May I first join the Leader of the Opposition in commending the work of his new hon. Friend, the hon. Member for Kensington (Emma Dent Coad)? I am sure we all remember getting to grips with our first few days as a Member of Parliament, and having to deal with a disaster and tragedy of this sort in her constituency so early on must have been very difficult. I commend her for the work that she...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Heidi Alexander: constituents and people who live in London. On the day on which the election was called, I was stopped by a constituent at Lewisham station. He simply said to me, “We have to stop the damage Theresa May is doing to our country.” I put that statement on every one of my election leaflets. His concern was about Brexit, about his job in central London, and about his ability in...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (15 Jun 2017)

...the single market? Is her position that we should be in or out of the customs union? Alternatively, is her position exactly what her position has been over the past year, which is that she will do exactly what Theresa May tells her to do, regardless of what is in the best interests of the country? I will give Ruth Davidson a chance to prove that she has some ability to think independently...

Scottish Parliament: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights (15 Jun 2017)

...deep-seated concern and, I believe, the deep-seated concern of many people not just in Scotland but across the UK at the prospect of some kind of grubby deal between the Tories and the DUP to allow Theresa May to cling to office. I have just listened to Ruth Davidson talking about the national interest, but that kind of deal is not in the national interest in any way, shape or form,...

Scottish Parliament: Second Independence Referendum (15 Jun 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: That was Theresa May last week, but this week Nicola Sturgeon seems to be equally in denial. Given that the First Minister has said that she wants to be involved in negotiating Brexit on behalf of the UK, will she now recognise that she cannot possibly be sitting at the top table and heading for the exit at one and the same time?

Scottish Parliament: Stink Pits (15 Jun 2017)

Ruth Maguire: ...animal welfare I will stand with those who protect animals, not those who profit from their suffering. If recent weeks have shown us anything, it is that we cannot rest on our laurels when it comes to animal welfare. If Theresa May had had her way last week, we would now be seeing moves towards the reintroduction of fox-hunting in England and Wales. Thankfully she did not, but that near...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (Opportunities for Growth) (14 Jun 2017)

Willie Rennie: .... We should seek to grow exports to the rest of the UK and exports to the rest of Europe. We must break down barriers, not build them up. There is an opportunity to turn away from a damaging hard Brexit. Theresa May called the general election to get an overwhelming mandate for her Brexit plan, but she failed. That is why I support calls for a cross-party Cabinet committee to prepare a new...

Members Sworn (14 Jun 2017)

John Bercow: ...Offices. I propose to call first the Father of the House, then members of the Cabinet, then members of the shadow Cabinet, then all Privy Counsellors not included in those two groups, wherever they may be sitting, and then other Ministers. Thereafter, I shall call other hon. Members according to the Parliament of their first entry, or, for those with broken service, that of most recent...

Election of Speaker (13 Jun 2017)

Theresa May: ...-Elect, to all those who are new Members, that you can be in the House for 20 years and still not always know what the protocol is going to be. Mr Speaker-Elect, on behalf of the whole House, may I congratulate you on your re-election? At least someone got a landslide. May I also congratulate you on becoming the first Speaker since the second world war to be re-elected three times? In your...

Scottish Parliament: Human Trafficking and Exploitation (13 Jun 2017)

Adam Tomkins: ...proud that the United Kingdom is a global leader in fighting the evil trade in human beings for sex and labour exploitation. We should all be proud of that. I am also proud that, as Home Secretary, Theresa May introduced the Modern Slavery Bill—the first of its kind in Europe—that she appointed the world’s first anti-slavery commissioner, and that she set up the modern...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (7 Jun 2017)

The First Minister: My focus today and tomorrow is to persuade as many people across Scotland as I can of this: the only way to stop Theresa May—who is on the ropes in this election—getting a bigger majority is to make sure that we do not send Tory MPs to boost that majority and strengthen her hand. Let us make sure tomorrow that we send SNP MPs to the House of Commons to stand...

Scottish Parliament: Paris Climate Accord (7 Jun 2017)

Clare Haughey: ...have expressed condemnation of the US withdrawal from the accord. Does the First Minister share my view that the United Kingdom Government should have been far more robust in its response, and that Theresa May should have shown leadership on the issue, rather than lacking the backbone to stand up to President Trump?

Scottish Parliament: People with Dementia (1 Jun 2017)

...’ benefits. The triple lock for pensions is to go, the winter fuel allowance is to go and there is a dementia tax. It is very clear for pensioners across Scotland that, if they want to make sure that Theresa May does not have the power to take away their benefits and protections, they should make sure that they have strong MPs standing up for them. Like other countries, Scotland has...

Scottish Parliament: Protecting Workers’ Rights (31 May 2017)

Neil Findlay: ...assistants and others see the end of years of pay cuts and freezes. The greatest pro-worker policy of all will see the end of austerity as a UK and Scottish Government economic policy. We have not seen Theresa May much in this election—I think that she has been locked in a cupboard in Tory HQ to prevent her from meeting the voters. However, in a rare sighting, she claimed that the...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (18 May 2017)

Nicola Sturgeon: Later today, I will have engagements to take forward the Government’s programme for Scotland. This evening, I will take part in the ITV leaders’ debate, which, of course, Theresa May is ducking.

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (18 May 2017)

The First Minister: Before I come on to the Scottish Government’s position, I say first that it says a lot about the priorities of Theresa May and the Tories when they go out of their way to deny Parliament any say over the hugely important issues that are associated with Brexit and yet they are committed to giving Parliament a free vote on reintroducing fox hunting. If ever something...

Scottish Parliament: Snaring (18 May 2017)

Ruth Maguire: .... In the section on “Dealing with Injured Non-target Animals Accidentally Caught in Snares” it is advised that “Wild animals are often capable of surviving significant injuries, although they may suffer prolonged pain in the process.” Elsewhere, snare users are given chillingly dispassionate instructions on how to dispatch, or kill, various species—target and...

Scottish Parliament: Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (18 May 2017)

Gordon Lindhurst: ...paid employment. Recently, I was disappointed to hear news of the potential loss of up to 260 jobs at the Jabil manufacturing plant in Livingston. That is but one example of recent announcements that may require urgent action to be taken. Although it remains to be seen how many people will be affected following consultations and natural turnover, it is clear that PACE may have a role to...
