Higher Education and Research Bill - Commons Reason and Amendments (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Mackay of Clashfern: ...a particular matter that does not arise especially under this Motion but, from my point of view, is rather important. When the noble Baroness, Lady Brown, raised the issue of the new power to search the headquarters of higher education providers, she indicated that it was something that the higher education providers anticipated with a degree of apprehension. In response to that, my noble...

Criminal Finances Bill - Report (and remaining stages) (25 Apr 2017)

Baroness Kramer: ...’ internal security team to track down the authors of anonymous letters that were sent to the board and a senior executive making allegations about a colleague whom the chief executive, Jes Staley, had recruited.

Chris Philp: Q In your experience of inspecting prisons, do you think that search, whether of individual prisoners or of their cell accommodation, is adequately frequent, bearing in mind the amount of contraband that seems to be in circulation?

Business of the House: Ratty’s Lane Incinerator (23 Mar 2017)

Charles Walker: ...for this afternoon’s Adjournment debate. He is a diligent representative and has worked tirelessly to inform me of his community’s concerns, as have the Hoddesdon Society and, Madam Deputy Speaker, many of your constituents—this application has an impact on your constituency as well. The concerns centre on an application by Veolia to build a 350,000 tonne incinerator at...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Offence of shining or directing a laser at a vehicle (21 Mar 2017)

Andy McDonald: ...on enforcement and the policing of laser attacks, but I look forward to hearing what the hon. Gentleman has to say. Through amendment 26, we seek clarification of what constitutes an aircraft’s first movement. It will not have escaped your attention, Ms Ryan, that a person “commits an offence if…he or she shines or directs a laser beam at a vehicle which is in the course...

Short and Holiday-Let Accommodation (Notification of Local Authorities) (21 Mar 2017)

Karen Buck: ...is currently investigating more than 1,100 properties believed to have breached the 90-night limit. Also in the early part of last year, the number of whole properties—as opposed to rooms—in London listed on Airbnb increased by a quarter, from 17,625 to 21,861. Research by the Residential Landlords Association shows that 41% of all Airbnb listings in London last June were...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: ..., there is no need to do that because the action of pointing a laser, however strong it is, at a vehicle is the offence. Presumably, without reclassifying them as offensive weapons, if you got your power of stop and search, that would be because of suspicion that the laser would be used for—or had been used for—that purpose. But if you were simply going to say that the...

Child Abuse Offences (Sentencing) — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (13 Mar 2017)

Sarah Newton: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I am sure you will agree that this has been a well-informed debate, and I very much appreciate the spirit in which all Members have made sincere and thoughtful contributions. This is an incredibly important issue, and I thank the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) for leading the debate and bringing the...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2017)

Baroness Ford: ...Lords, it is always a great pleasure to participate in the debate which marks International Women’s Day and I thank the Minister for her introduction. I always learn so much from my colleagues in your Lordships’ House, who in different ways are supporting women in very different walks of life. My pleasure this year is tinged with sadness, in that we will miss hearing from the...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (8 Mar 2017)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...the name of my noble friend Lord Stevenson is really a probing amendment, designed to ask the Minister why we have Schedule 5 and why we need it. We have more than five pages on powers of entry and search, from the power to issue search warrants to those of inspecting, copying, seizing and retaining items. It all sounds terribly dramatic, and the reasons for it are not at all clear. Such a...

Attacks on NHS Staff — [James Gray in the Chair] (27 Feb 2017)

Holly Lynch: May I join colleagues in saying what a pleasure it is to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray? I hope that right hon. and hon. colleagues from across the House are familiar with my “Protect the Protectors” campaign, and I am truly grateful to the many who have lent it their support. As part of that campaign, I have lobbied for protections that would cover all emergency service...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Strasburger: ...the company’s biggest market immediately, with no certainty that he could rescind the decision, and that he would try to fill the vacuum with clients that the company was only just getting to know, I think that your first call—like mine—would be to a headhunter to find a new chief executive. Mrs May asserts that we voted to leave the single market. This is a total...

Petition - Closure of Bank in Odiham: SS Mendi (21 Feb 2017)

Andrew Murrison: .... On average, about 6,000 men were killed each day throughout the great war, which might explain why the death of 600 men in one incident, dreadful though that is, went unremarked in the House at the time. A search of Hansard will find no contemporaneous reference to it. I am very pleased to be able to rectify that this evening. It is said that, as the Mendi slipped below the waves, the...

House of Lords Reform Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Feb 2017)

Lord Selsdon: ...someone came up and tapped me on the shoulder and said, “My Lord, could I have a word?” I said, “I’m not my Lord, I’m just me”. He said, “I’m afraid I’ve got some news for you. Your father died off the Azores this morning at sea and has been buried. You are now Lord Selsdon”. It was quite a shock. I was young, I had not met many...

Child Contact Centres (Accreditation) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Feb 2017)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lady McIntosh for introducing this Bill and for giving your Lordships’ House an opportunity to debate important issues concerning the use and accreditation of child contact centres and the very important role of the National Association of Child Contact Centres, or NACCC, as I shall refer to the charity in the rest of this speech. I also pay tribute to...

Technical and Further Education Bill - Second Reading (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...it is a pleasure to welcome back the noble Lord, Lord Nash. We have missed his wit, his repartee and his general joie de vivre during the long hours that we have spent on the Higher Education and Research Bill. However, perhaps we should acknowledge his skills at delegation, because he has certainly dodged a bullet with that monster of a Bill and its 500-plus amendments. I also welcome for...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (6th Day) (25 Jan 2017)

Baroness Goldie: ...to write to him with clarification as to how—a very large piece of paper has just been handed to me, entitled, “What will the magistrate take into account when considering whether to issue a search warrant?” If your Lordships, like me, are agog to know this riveting information, here we go. The magistrate would need to be satisfied on the basis of the written evidence and...

Populism and Nationalism - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: ...of elections in the Netherlands, Germany and France; clearly, the populists will do well, but they will be excluded from any resulting coalitions, which will increase their sense of alienation and that there is an establishment conspiracy against them. There appears everywhere to be a search for identity, a sense that the fault lies with the system, and a search for...

Leaving the Eu: Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (18 Jan 2017)

Hilary Benn: ...hear him describe Angela Merkel’s decision to provide shelter to 1 million refugees as a “catastrophic mistake…taking all of these illegals”, as if he were completely unaware of America being a country built on providing a welcome to those seeking shelter. That is best expressed in these famous words: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses...
