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

Gordon Lindhurst: ...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 play there. Looking at the wider picture, it is important that PACE takes on...

Scottish Parliament: International Nurses Day (10 May 2017)

Anas Sarwar: ...dedicate their lives to our national health service. I also put on record my gratitude to all those bodies and unions that represent our fabulous nurses, from the RCN—I am delighted to see that Theresa Fyffe of the RCN is in the gallery this evening—to trade unions such as Unison, which support those nurses all year round. Emma Harper rightly mentioned the sustainable...

Scottish Parliament: Food Banks (9 May 2017)

Pauline McNeill: ...landscape, except that they are run and funded not by the state but by the wonderful work of charities such as the Trussell Trust, Glasgow City Mission and the Simon Community Scotland—and too many others to mention. Nobody I know wants food banks to remain in permanent service, but for now, sadly, they are a necessity, and one that has saved lives. The fact that food banks exist is...

Scottish Parliament: Child Tax Credit Cuts (25 Apr 2017)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...the Scottish Government on lodging the motion. I assure it of the support of the Liberal Democrats. We will support Kez Dugdale’s and Alison Johnstone’s amendments, as well. Who can forget Theresa May’s inaugural words in her tenure as Prime Minister? In her Francis of Assisi moment on the steps of number 10, she said of families that rely on tax credits in particular:...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (20 Apr 2017)

The First Minister: I will say a number of things to that. First, Ruth Davidson says that Theresa May has given the commitment. Well, the morning after she called the general election, Theresa May was on the radio and was challenged to commit to putting the 0.7 per cent commitment in the manifesto. She would not do it. She was challenged to do something else; she was challenged to say that...

Scottish Parliament: International Workers Memorial Day (20 Apr 2017)

Alexander Stewart: ...the need for robust health and safety standards in the workplace has never been so important. With regard to its own health and safety record, the UK has been a pioneer in putting in place many regulations that have had a massive impact. However, more requires to be done—there is always room for improvement. I regret to say that far too many people have been seriously injured or...

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

Theresa May: As the hon. Gentleman knows, record levels of funding are going into our schools. Everybody across this House has recognised for many years that the current funding formula is not fair across the country, and it is necessary for us to look for a fairer funding formula. We have consulted on that and will obviously be responding to that consultation. As the hon. Gentleman faces up to the...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (19 Apr 2017)

Pauline McNeill: ...we need. As others have mentioned, low wages, insecurity in work and the increasing gap between rich and poor must be centre stage in the election if ordinary people’s views are to be represented. If Theresa May’s real reason for calling a general election is, as she says, so that people can unite behind a Brexit plan to allow her to negotiate, she needs to provide an assurance...

Brexit: European Union-derived Rights - Motion to Resolve (4 Apr 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...especially in health and social care. One in 15 nurses in England is European, although already the number registering is declining to only a quarter of those in the same period of 2015. We have also lost twice as many doctors as in 2015. The RCP and the BMA blame this on the lack of assurances for EU nationals. In social care, Europeans comprise 6% of the English workforce—some...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Theresa Villiers: ...heard about, particularly those detailed in the speech by the hon. Member for Redcar (Anna Turley). I emphasise that animal welfare and action to prevent animal cruelty is a very high priority for many of my constituents, who contact me regularly about this. I warmly and strongly support the campaign for stiffer maximum sentences for those who abuse animals, act with unnecessary cruelty...

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Theresa May: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The right hon. Gentleman has said this afternoon on a number of occasions, as he has on many occasions in this House before, that Scotland voted to remain in the European Union and should therefore be treated differently. My constituency voted to remain in the European Union. [Interruption.] The point is that we are one United Kingdom, and it was a vote of the whole of...

Scottish Parliament: SinoFortone and China Railway No 3 Engineering Group Memorandum of Understanding (29 Mar 2017)

Maree Todd: I think that this is a human rights issue. My experience of working in mental health care was that very many of the people I worked with were harmed by the UK Government’s policies when the Lib Dems were in power. Today—the day on which Theresa May formally triggered article 50 and began the process of removing the UK from the European Union—is an historic day. Instead of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

Theresa May: I pay tribute to the hon. Lady, who has campaigned tirelessly on this issue. Obviously, she is not just a passionate campaigner, but has on many occasions spoken movingly in this House about her own experience, which she is bringing to bear on this issue. I welcome the decision that has been taken by the Co-op to waive funeral fees, and I recognise the actions of the Welsh Government. Of...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (28 Mar 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: ...powers for this place. However, I have not heard a word in the whole of 2017, because it is independence first, last and everything when it comes to her agenda. We have also had the spectacle of Theresa May claiming yesterday to be the best protector of the union. Just ponder that for a moment—the leader of a Conservative Party that has caused so much division in our society; which...

Bus Services Bill [Lords]: Bus companies: limitation of powers of authorities in England (27 Mar 2017)

Theresa Villiers: ...provisions in the Bill are welcome and important. Partnership working between local authorities and private sector bus companies have delivered a whole range of improvements for passengers in many parts of the country. The goal of the Government here should be to focus on encouraging that kind of co-operation, whereby the business acumen and expertise of the private sector can work...

London Attacks (23 Mar 2017)

Theresa May: I join the right hon. Gentleman and you, Mr Speaker, in expressing our gratitude for the support and solidarity that the French Government have shown us at this difficult time. Like many other countries on the continent, France has obviously felt the horror and trauma of terrible terrorist attacks, and we are grateful to the French Government for the support that they have shown us. The right...

Iran’s Influence in the Middle East — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (22 Mar 2017)

Theresa Villiers: ...years. Now people across the region are suffering the consequences. Iran is thought to have about 10,000 operatives in Syria and to have spent several billion dollars supporting the Assad regime. Many throughout the middle east are suffering as a result of Iranian involvement in funding and arming hard-line and extremist groups, but the House should be in no doubt of the suffering that...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (22 Mar 2017)

Annie Wells: ...this time, as only Ruth Davidson and the Scottish Conservatives can sort out this mess.” Those are not my words; they are the words of a constituent of mine in the east end of Glasgow. People are starting to get tired of the SNP. How many times have we heard it uttered in recent months that the SNP-led Scottish Government needs to return to its day job? How many times have people...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Mar 2017)

Theresa May: First of all, what we have done in relation to the funding formula is to address an issue that Labour ignored for all its time in government. Across this House there has generally been, for many years, an accepted view that the current formula for school funding is not fair. I was saying this—I was calling for a better funding formula—more than 15 years ago when I was the shadow...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (21 Mar 2017)

Alex Rowley: ...has come to. She has said that “The case for full self-government ultimately transcends the issues of Brexit, of oil, of national wealth and balance sheets”, but I do not agree with her. Like many in our country, I am worried about jobs, about the state of our education services, about the massive skills gaps in our economy, about the rising poverty up and down Scotland and...
