Northern Ireland: Budget 2020 (18 Mar 2020)

Theresa Villiers: May I appeal to the Secretary of State, in his work with the Executive on the Budget and the economy, to have a strong focus on farming? It is at difficult times like this that people realise fully the importance of food security to our nation, and to every family and household in this country. We need to ensure that we look after our farmers in Northern Ireland and across the whole United...

Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Mar 2020)

Theresa May: ...that the best solution to this is a vaccine, but the chief scientific adviser has said that that could be as much as a year away. He has also suggested that, until that vaccine is available, it may be difficult to ease restrictions successfully. Does my right hon. Friend agree with that analysis, and if so, what does a sensible exit strategy look like?

Covid-19 (17 Mar 2020)

Theresa Villiers: ...has been in touch about his grandparents, Alan and Beatrice. Beatrice is 86 and Alan is 89, and they are trapped on board the Silver Shadow cruise ship, which is quarantined off Recife in Brazil. May I appeal to the Foreign Secretary for his help to get Alan and Beatrice home?

Public Bill Committee: Environment Bill: Environmental targets (17 Mar 2020)

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Mar 2020)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ...Lord will only wait just a moment, I might get to that point.” What I wanted to say was that when Boris Johnson was writing in the Telegraph he was always clear in his advice to David Cameron and Theresa May that they had to be able to walk away from the table. That is clearly something that as Prime Minister we expect him to do. If we get to late June and he does not feel the deal is...

Covid-19 (16 Mar 2020)

Theresa May: May I join the Secretary of State, and the shadow Secretary of State, in commending and paying tribute to all who work in our national health service, on whom we rely from day to day, but on whom we rely all the more under these conditions? May I press the Secretary of State on two points that have been raised by others? The advice from the World Health Organisation was very clear: test,...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 Mar 2020)

Lord Northbrook: ...that the new Government will specifically reaffirm the supremacy of the Commons over the Lords in a new Act of Parliament and possibly even revisit the Lords’ power of delay—something that Theresa May threatened during her prime ministership when the Lords refused to pass her Brexit legislation straightaway. In summary, I believe that significant constitutional legislation to implement...

Green Economy - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2020)

Baroness Sheehan: .... This is to be welcomed, because politicians can now move apace. Here in the UK, the Government declared a climate and environment emergency last year. In the dying days of her Administration, Theresa May added legislation committing the UK to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. However, what have we done since declaring a climate emergency? Have we acted with commensurate urgency? We have...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Theresa May: There is no doubt that, as my right hon. Friend the Chancellor and other speakers have acknowledged, this Budget has had to be delivered against the very difficult background of the coronavirus. We had already seen a slowing in world growth and expectations of that in the coming months, and we have now also seen the negative impacts for economies around the world of the coronavirus. These are...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (10 Mar 2020)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...interest at the moment because the International Relations and Defence Select Committee, which I chair, is conducting an inquiry into the UK’s Africa strategy. The strategy was announced by Theresa May back in 2018, although little has been heard about it until quite recently. We are examining how the Government could and should work in partnership with the African Union on the delivery...

Business of the House (5 Mar 2020)

Theresa Villiers: When the capital city had a Conservative Mayor, he cut crime. May we have a debate on why the current Labour Mayor is failing to get a grip on the worrying rise in serious violent crime in London?

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government’s Approach to Negotiations with the European Union (4 Mar 2020)

Michael Russell: ...on the table. This is an extremely long process. Those of us who have been involved in it more or less since the referendum in 2016 recognised some major problems, one of which was the failure of Theresa May ever to sit down with the people that Mr Rowley is talking about across these islands and ask, “How could we get an agreement?” The whole process has been poisoned by that. I will...

Written Answers — Home Office: Daniel Morgan Independent Panel (3 Mar 2020)

Theresa May: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the timeframe is for the publication of the report of the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel.

Education: Topical Questions (2 Mar 2020)

Theresa Villiers: Barnet has not benefited from the transitional funding for maintained nursery schools. As a result, our maintained nursery schools are under severe financial stress. May I urge the Secretary of State to ensure that Barnet is included in the long-term funding solution that he has promised for the maintained nursery school sector?

Environment Bill (26 Feb 2020)

Alan Whitehead: ...but it perhaps goes some of the way. I am happy to visit the constituency of the hon. Member for Burton (Kate Griffiths) provided that I get a tour of the brewery and a ticket for the match on 5 May when Burton Albion are going to thrash Portsmouth—my local rival football team. All this afternoon’s speeches, thoughtful and important though they were, concentrated on the imperatives...

NHS Funding Bill (Money Bill) - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Feb 2020)

Baroness Thornton: ...proposed legislation designated as a money Bill, Peers will be unable to send any amendments back to the House of Commons for consideration. That is frustrating as the Bill, originally announced by Theresa May back in June 2018, contains, as many noble Lords have said, many serious problems and flaws. We agree with the King’s Fund, the Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation that an...

UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Feb 2020)

Andrew Bowie: ...times. There was little comment from anyone on how the UK and indeed the world needed firm, ambitious action to reduce our climate emissions. That is remarkable, given that but a year later, in May 2019, the UK Committee on Climate Change recommended a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. A month after that, the then Prime Minister Theresa May committed the UK to that target and, a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Spring Supplementary Estimates 2019-2020 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates and Vote on Account 2020-21 (24 Feb 2020)

Conor Murphy: ...our approach to Treasury over the past number of years, yet we will try to get across. We are also trying to secure confidence and supply money, which was cut off by the person who tried to steer Theresa May's deal through Westminster and whose experience of the DUP caused him to cut off what was left of our money for rural broadband, our money for a mental health strategy and our money...

Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (24 Feb 2020)

Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames: ...non-terrorist offences. As the leader writer put it: “Prisons are not only failing to deradicalise terrorists; in some cases they risk creating them.” At Second Reading in the House of Commons, Theresa May, with all her experience, pointed out that the Lord Chancellor and the Government were “absolutely right to be addressing the question of the automatic early release of terrorist...
