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...

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...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme: Public Inquiry (17 Jan 2017)

Sinead Bradley: ...to our hospitals, education and other places where it is so badly needed. Words are hollow when an opportunity is presented to you and you do not take it. If you suggest you want to re-present yourself to be a Member of this House, you must search your soul now and ask, "What am I doing? What am I doing before I walk out those doors to make sure the public interest is being served?"....

As a net exporter, Wales’s economic, social and security interests depend on a...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (1st Day) (9 Jan 2017)

Lord Krebs: ...;Oxford and Cambridge—which served largely as institutions for educating people for careers in the Church or in canon law. The modern university as we understand it, an institution which combines research and teaching, was essentially invented in Germany by Alexander von Humboldt in 1810, when he founded the University of Berlin. However, in spite of the changing details of what...

Universal Credit - Question for Short Debate (21 Dec 2016)

Lord Farmer: ...-Jin Hwang and Hugh Heclo have explained how, “‘new’ ideas can become influential in times of uncertainty when the dominant paradigm faces a crisis. … what is new is the heightened attention they receive within policy-making circles as decision makers search for new ideas that can help solve the crisis. … ‘politics finds its sources not only in power but...

Lord Foster of Bath: ...in the Bill which we hope may be covered by amendments in Committee—ideally, government amendments—addressing issues such as the online sale of counterfeit electrical goods; stronger action by search engines to deal with copyright infringing material and online piracy; and ensuring a level playing field in the next round of spectrum auctions. As the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson,...

Operation Midland: Henriques Report (13 Dec 2016)

Rishi Sunak: Early one morning in March 2015, one of my constituents opened the front door of her home in Wensleydale to find a group of police officers standing there, with a warrant to search her house. Having lost her husband of 35 years just weeks before, she watched while the officers upturned every inch of the home they had shared. She told me it was “like seeing your house burgled in front of...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (2nd Day) (7 Dec 2016)

Lord Paddick: ...as one of the suspects who had attempted to carry out a suicide bombing. I gave evidence for the family. I experienced first-hand the tactics deployed by some police counsel at inquests—a search for the truth turns into a bruising adversarial encounter. As I said in Committee, the coroner had to warn the police counsel over the aggressive tactics he was using in cross-examination. As...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...been here throughout the whole process and that is much to his credit. I also welcome and very much enjoyed the maiden speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Sugg. I am sure we can remember when we entered your Lordships’ House that there was a feeling of some trepidation; perhaps we were daunted by the prospect. However, when, as we heard, you have dropped from a helicopter on to a...

Supported Housing — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Nov 2016)

Martyn Day: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark (Neil Coyle) for securing this debate. I intend to speak briefly, as this is not the first occasion since joining Parliament that I have spoken on the subject of supported accommodation, and I suspect it will not be the last. However, I have a few points to make....

John Whittingdale: ...is notifying half a million infringing pages and they are promptly removed, but this is a Hydra—as soon as one comes down, another three go up. The need to achieve greater agreement between the search companies and the rights owners remains as great as ever. Therefore, the idea that the Government should spur them on to get that agreement by saying that, unless it can be obtained,...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Nov 2016)

Julie Cooper: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. This debate has arisen in response to a petition signed by more than 115,000 people, including 922 from my constituency, following the sad passing of Poppy-Mai, the little daughter of Mr and Mrs Barnard.
