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%.

Brexit: Acquired Rights (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2017)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...”. However, everything changed on 24 June 2016 for people who were living in one country but with family in other countries. All sorts of questions have been raised again and again, and we still do not have many answers. The paper brought forward last week on safeguarding the rights of citizens does not go very far in dealing with the uncertainty that has been raised. It goes a...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (Continued) (29 Jun 2017)

Baroness Walmsley: My Lords, this has been a fascinating debate with powerful contributions from many noble Lords. It was admirably kicked off by the passionate speech from the noble Baroness, Lady Sherlock, on poverty, public services and a fair welfare state. Noble Lords have heard from 10 of my colleagues on these Benches whose speeches have ranged far and wide. My noble friend Lord Storey absolutely...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (29 Jun 2017)

Baroness Sherlock: ...individual, the extent to which we are responsible one for another, our tolerance for inequality, and the nature of the safety net to protect those in greatest need. During the general election, I met too many voters who believed that they had been left behind: public servants who had not had a pay rise for years; people who had waited for hours in A&E, for weeks to see a GP or for...

The Prime Minister Was Asked--: Engagements (28 Jun 2017)

Theresa May: There have been many years of waiting for the Hillsborough families and the different groups who came together, not just the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. The work done by Margaret Aspinall and others has been absolutely exemplary. As I said, today will be a day of really mixed emotions for them, but we all welcome the fact that charging decisions have been taken. That is an important step...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Lord Scriven: ...Northern Ireland. Therefore, I wondered how the deal that I saw progressed equality, particularly in relation to sexual orientation, and I will tell the Government why. That deal sends a very strong signal to many LGBT people in Northern Ireland that this Government believe that the right of thousands of people in Northern Ireland can be sidelined or ignored so that the right of Theresa...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ..., the Government sold off the green bank. We are on course to miss key climate change targets, and we have to add to this the ending of the Department of Energy and Climate Change by the Prime Minister, Theresa May. As my noble friend Lady Jones mentioned in her opening statement, the amazing fact we have to adjust to is the appointment of Michael Gove as Secretary of State in the...

Northern Ireland (26 Jun 2017)

Matt Warman: Twenty per cent. more of my constituents voted Conservative in 2017 than did so at the previous opportunity. No one else will blow that trumpet, so I thought I should. Many of them did so because they were inspired by the vision for Brexit that was laid out by Theresa May. Can the First Secretary reassure me that this deal will strengthen Theresa May’s hand when it comes to Brexit and...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Low of Dalston: ..., to the obvious approbation of the House. He described the widespread criticism of the Prime Minister as “vile attacks”. Really? By Matthew Parris, Michael Portillo and the noble Lord, Lord Patten? If I was Theresa May, I would think that the moment I received ringing endorsements such as that from the Tory grandees was the time I really needed to start worrying. If one...

European Council (26 Jun 2017)

Theresa May: 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 other ways—in the coming weeks and months for Parliament to make its views known on these various matters. Let me come on to the position...

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: ...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 has done. The right hon. Gentleman raised a number of issues, many of which will be matters for the inquiry to get to grips with. I would expect the inquiry to address the responsibility for this issue and the advice given by the fire service. As I said in...

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

Theresa May: .... This time it was an attack on British Muslims as they left their place of worship at a sacred time of year. It was a brutal and sickening reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred can take many forms, and that our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible. This Queen’s Speech takes important steps in helping us to do so. We will review our...
