Written Ministerial Statements — Prime Minister: Grenfell Tower Inquiry Terms of Reference (14 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: ...not be ignored and I am determined that these important questions are not left unanswered. As a first step, I have asked my Hon. Friend the Housing Minister (Alok Sharma) to personally meet and hear from as many social tenants as possible, as well as other residents of social housing estates, both in the immediate area around Grenfell Tower and across the country. The Housing Minister has...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Gordon Marsden: ...Scottish students and 11,745 Northern Irish students. Rising fees might have been a coherent defence but, as MillionPlus has said, there has been no direct grant available for university courses in so many subjects since 2014-15. There is an alternative, however. It that was outlined by the Labour party at the last general election, but I will not repeat the eloquent pledges of my hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: arrive in the next few days, along with over 60 police. More than 40 tonnes of aid has now arrived. I am sure that Members across the House would like to join me in paying tribute to the hard work of the many people, military and civilian, who are doing an incredible job in difficult circumstances. This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others. In addition to my...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: .... I can only apologise to her for the fact that she has not yet received a response. I acknowledged at the time, and I continue to acknowledge, that the attack in Manchester damaged lives in many ways. There are those who were injured and are living with the consequences of their injuries, those who lost loved ones—relatives or friends—and are affected by that, and those whose...

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: member states, outlines the process and explains what needs to happen. With departure, surely we would expect something similar. We need, on both sides, to identify what it is that we are leaving and how we are to go about it. Accession negotiations take many years because there is so much detail associated with membership of the European Union, so at this stage perhaps we should not...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Stephen Gethins: .... The mess that we are in is not entirely the Government’s fault. I think that Vote Leave bequeathed that mess by presenting a blank piece of paper, which means that it is up to us to try to fill in those many, many blanks. Having said that, the Government have had five months since they triggered article 50 and 15 months since the EU referendum. Ministers bear culpability for the...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord Shinkwin: ...noble Lord, Lord Bew. I, too, congratulate my noble friend Lord McColl on introducing this important Bill. I want to make four points. First, I agree with other noble Lords that David Cameron and Theresa May in particular are surely to be commended for once again putting Great Britain at the forefront of the fight against slavery. In her then capacity as Home Secretary, the Prime Minister...

Age of Criminal Responsibility Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord on his persistence in bringing his important Bill back to the House of Lords. He and I have been partners in crime on many issues over the years, if I may say so, and I share his commitment and concern about what happens in the youth justice system. With the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, we used to chair juvenile courts in London and it was all too clear...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (7 Sep 2017)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...he identified the original “giant evils”, as he described them, of ignorance, idleness, squalor, want and disease. It is a failure of progress that, if we strip out the antiquated language, many of those evils still hold sway in our society today. We should remember that, until this decade, the systems of welfare in this country had not undergone significant reform since their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Sep 2017)

Theresa May: As I have said on many occasions, overall immigration has been good for the UK, but people want to see it controlled—that, I think, is what people want to see as a result of our leaving the EU. We can already exercise controls in relation to those who come to this country from outside the EU, and the Government continue to believe that it is important to have net migration at...

Brexit: UK-Irish Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: ...hate it, but it will be their duty to apply the rules that apply at all the external frontiers of the European Union. Two-thirds of the member states of the European Union have the duty of controlling a part of the external frontier of the European Union. Many of them, too, have a region just across the frontier, just outside, with which they have very close ties—a region in the...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2017-18 (5 Sep 2017)

Lewis Macdonald: ...the Devolution (Further Powers) Committee, which debated the outcomes of the Smith commission. We interrogated Scottish and UK ministers and we heard a good deal from civil society. The sense from many of those witnesses was of the transformative potential of the new powers. SNP ministers and committee members lost no opportunity to argue that more devolved powers would enable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Jul 2017)

Theresa May: The best route out of poverty is through work. That is why it is so important that, over the last seven years, we have seen 3 million more jobs created in our economy. It is why we now see so many thousands of people in households with work, rather than in workless households, and hundreds of thousands more children being brought up in a household where there is work rather than a failure to...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Alec Shelbrooke: ...the Tyne Cot cemetery, along with those of tens of thousands of other men whose bodies were never found. May Shelbrooke, my great-grandmother, could not accept that Ted had died and his body had not been found. That very much plays into what many Members have said today about the lasting effects of the war. May wrote constantly to the British Red Cross for about three years to find out...

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Lord Patten: ...units and trying to avoid the Better Regulation Executive. The Labour Party was up to its neck in regulation and deregulation in those 13 years, and as a Minister the noble Baroness played her part in all of that. In many ways, coalition and Conservative Governments since 2010 have been simply continuing the work that Labour started. I suspect that there is all-party agreement and consent...

Security in the UK - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (10 Jul 2017)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...Prevent. No one would disagree that prevention is better than cure, but at the same time you have to make sure that what you put in place actually functions. I argue that Prevent does not: it has far too many failings. It has targeted too many innocent people, including children. At this stage, it does not have the respect of the communities that it is meant to be engaging with and has...

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Theresa May: ...most robust export control regimes in the world. The right hon. Gentleman started off by talking about the issue of the Government’s agenda. This Government have an ambitious agenda to change this country. There are many issues—[Interruption.]

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Israel and Palestinian Talks (5 Jul 2017)

Alistair Burt: ...other girls in her city to do exactly the same. Her forthright defence of faith, saying that it is mankind’s frailties, not God’s love, that causes the problem, was heard and welcomed by many of us. There was a range of other speeches. My hon. Friend the Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt) made a thoughtful contribution, as befits the most recent Chairman of the Foreign Affairs...

State Pension Age for Women — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (5 Jul 2017)

Alex Cunningham: ...demanding action. I know what the Conservatives are doing: they are trying to ignore the issue in the hope that the years will pass, the number of women affected by this measure will drop, and they will get away with leaving older people to struggle for many years to come. We heard during the election that there is not a magic money tree—others have referred to that—but...

Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Jul 2017)

Theresa May: I set out my position in response to an earlier question by the Leader of the Opposition. People may not realise that there is not only the overall public sector pay increase, but, for many nurses, increments or progression pay as well. A typical band 5 nurse will receive 3.8% over and above the 1%.
