ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Michael Tomlinson: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell, and to contribute so early in this debate. I too congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan). The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) and my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) were right to say that the number of hon. Members here in this Chamber shows the...

Operation Sophia: A Failed Mission (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2018)

Baroness Goldie: My Lords, first, may I say that I have genuinely enjoyed this debate? It has been interesting and stimulating and I am very grateful to all noble Lords for their contributions. I join all your Lordships in thanking my noble friend Lady Verma for tabling this debate. I thank her and all the other members of the European Union Committee for their detailed report. I say to my noble friend Lord...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Kenneth Clarke: ...to think that there are no protectionist pressures in India and Brazil and that it is simply a question of our present Foreign Secretary walking in, with his bonhomie, and saying, “You will of course now throw your markets open to us”. It is also absurd to argue that somehow this approach will produce deals with less damage to our sovereignty and fewer constraints. I do not...

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Mel Stride: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) both on securing the debate and on the tenacious approach she has rightly taken to the extremely important matter of business rates. I thank her for her comprehensive contribution, and in particular for the examples she gave of high street businesses—I...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Financial Penalties Etc (12 Jun 2018)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma, for our second day in Committee. As the Minister has set out, schedule 3 provides some clarity over financial penalties, including notices of intent, recovery of penalties and proceeds of those penalties. The Opposition support the schedule as drafted. We are seeking clarity, however, from the Minister on certain aspects, before we...

Palestinian Territories - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...recent launching of rockets and mortars from Gaza into Israel. Israel’s wisest Foreign Minister, Abba Eban, used often to say that the Palestinians, “never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity”, in the search for peace. For a long time, he was quite right but, now, that affliction has fallen on the Israelis themselves. As, by a long way, the most powerful state in...

Employment Rates — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (6 Jun 2018)

Luke Pollard: ...—if anyone has not visited it, the address is facebook.com/LukePollard—to ask people what their experience was. I said, “I am going to a debate about employment statistics. Can you tell me your stories?” Normally on my Facebook page, I have a few regular posters, as I am sure other hon. Members do. What struck me about the response to this post was how personal,...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Examination of Witnesses (5 Jun 2018)

...8212;I just want to get them signed up so that I have the certainty of them moving into the property at a future date,” and you have got a tenant going, “I really hope I get this property so that I do not have to reset my search back to square one,” with all the stress that comes with that. Referencing is quite a complex process. Actually, what the tenant said to the...

Passenger Ships: Evacuation, Search and Rescue Plans - Question for Short Debate (23 May 2018)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: .... As we are having a debate about the safety of passenger ships, let us consider this. When Sir John Franklin set off in 1845 from the Thames in HMS “Erebus” and HMS “Terror” to great fanfare to search for the north-west passage, nobody could have imagined the disaster that would befall them. All 129 men perished, with eventual evidence of cannibalism prevalent. No...

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Naseem Shah: ...but by attending the weddings, too. It is about building relationships between the police and their communities, and that is not done by creating an experience for a child, which will sit their mind, of being searched just because they happen to be black or just because their pigment colour is a few shades darker than that of other people, which shows them that they do not belong, they do...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (21 May 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...in Council requiring the Government of the overseas territories to introduce such registers. Noble Lords are aware that the issue of the register of beneficial ownership was debated extensively in your Lordships’ House. I welcomed the insight and the expertise and, while there were differences of views, there was a robust debate. In this regard, the Government tabled on Report in the...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (10 May 2018)

Baroness Berridge: ...software system engages with the claims portal. It is not the trainees; they are all trained on the IT system to access it. It is not like a conveyancer dealing directly with, say, Companies House or the Land Registry doing a search. Even the existing portal is not accessed by litigants in person or solicitors directly. They have spent resources to ensure that they have an easy point of...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I, too, thank the petitioner and the signatories for bringing the debate before the House today, the Petitions Committee for scheduling the debate, and the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) for ably introducing it. We have had lots of powerful and thoughtful speeches. The arrival of 492 passengers onboard...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Adonis: ...it in slow motion. To their horror, the point they have reached is that of Janet Leigh about to go into the shower—or, to be more precise, she goes into the shower on 29 March next year, in 333 days. The big question facing your Lordships and the country is this: is there a better ending to the film, knowing—as we do—that the British people will suffer serious harm if...

The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (26 Apr 2018)

Baroness Pitkeathley: My Lords, in my 20-odd years in your Lordships’ House I have lost count of the number of times I have spoken on health and social care issues and called attention to the challenges of maintaining and developing a system of health and care on which we all depend. Like many others in your Lordships’ House I owe my life to the NHS, and in my professional life I spent 40 years...

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...—start-up businesses, new companies, small tech companies—surround our city. We have 250 such businesses in York alone, and all that activity is building into the future of our economy, as we search for a new identity in a new era. What also really excites me is that old is blending with new, as we move forward in our city. The new gives new opportunities. At the heart of our...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (28 Mar 2018)

Lord Adonis: ...me to move the 372nd and last amendment to the Bill. By my calculations, some 236 noble Lords have so far taken part in the deliberations on this Bill, which is more than the entire membership of your Lordships’ House for the first six centuries of its existence. I believe, from a quick scan of Hansard, that we are now in our 115th hour of deliberations on the Bill, which is time...

[Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Mel Stride: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Cheryl. It was a pleasure to hear the opening speech, because it was insightful, clear and well-structured and set out. Given that this is a highly technical subject, that was quite an achievement. It was also extremely thoughtful. It has been remarked by a number of hon. Members that there are quite a few of us on this side of the...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...entreat all present: “Frodyr a chwiorydd, byddwch lawen a chedwch eich ffydd a’ch cred, a gwnewch y pethau bychain a welsoch ac a glywsoch gennyf i.—[Translation: Brothers and sisters, be joyful and keep your faith and belief, and do the little things you saw and heard from me.]”—It looks like I got away with it! Dewi preached that we should remember the...
