Children and Young People with Complex Needs (10 Dec 2021)

Charles Walker: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention, and I will come on to that. We need to have the right setting delivering the right care—the care that the child needs. The child needs to be at the centre of that care. How does a care emergency arise? That question is often put to me. Beyond the national shortage of beds, a provider can notify a local authority, with only a few hours’ notice,...

Scottish Parliament: Deaths in Prison Custody (30 Nov 2021)

Gordon MacDonald: not want another family to face the outcome that they did. Can the cabinet secretary advise us what steps are now being taken to reduce the number of drug-related deaths in prison custody and how improved data transparency on deaths in custody will help families to find closure?

China: Genocide - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Lord Anderson of Ipswich: Xinjiang, although I have followed previous debates with nothing short of admiration. I came to the subject by two slightly unorthodox routes: a professional interest in surveillance techniques, and an invitation to British experts in late 2015, backed by our respective Governments, to talk to the Chinese about counterterrorism. We were politely received, but I cannot claim that the...

Scottish Parliament: Transvaginal Mesh Removal (Cost Reimbursement) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (24 Nov 2021)

Jackson Carlaw: ...comprehensive contribution, which detailed some of the residual questions. She is absolutely right in saying that some women might not yet have declared that they would like to have mesh removed and that others might not yet be aware of the bill. As Martin Whitfield and others said, we have to be careful when setting the cut-off date for applications for procedures in the future. I thank...

Rail Infrastructure: North of England - Question (18 Nov 2021)

Lord Rosser: The economy of the West Midlands, and Birmingham in particular, has been boosted by the construction and pending completion of the fast new rail service that is HS2. Despite what the Minister has been seeking to say, it appears that Leeds and the local West Yorkshire economy will now be denied the estimated full £54 billion of economic benefits of their HS2 link. Leeds, for example, will be...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 222 (17 Nov 2021)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord German. I know that he has an immense amount of experience in matters around education, from both his personal experience of teaching in earlier decades and his work in the Welsh Assembly Government. I probably support his amendment, but I am much less interested in the amendments here than in achieving a shared purpose, which is that children...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 208A (15 Nov 2021)

Lord Macdonald of River Glaven: My Lords, I hope that the Minister can acknowledge that this is one of those comparatively rare occasions when noble Lords from all parties and none and from across the House have come together in the face of overwhelming evidence that a great public policy, in this case a great criminal justice policy, has gone disastrously wrong. It is beyond argument that IPPs have resulted in periods of...

Scottish Parliament: Veterans and Armed Forces Community (Remembrance and Support) (11 Nov 2021)

Gordon MacDonald: For more than 100 years, the Army has played an important part in the area of Edinburgh that I represent, with Dreghorn barracks and Redford infantry and cavalry barracks located in my constituency. I thank Paul Sweeney for reminding members that the MOD is due to close Redford infantry and cavalry barracks in 2025. The soldiers and their families are very much part of the community, and I...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations 2021 (10 Nov 2021)

Karen Adam: My constituency is a coastal fishing community of integrity and values that are embedded in trust and honesty. We often see that in highly skilled and dangerous professions, because a person’s word and integrity can mean the difference between life and death or prosperity and hunger. The fishing industry has gone through many changes over the past few hundred years. It has diversified from...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, I enthusiastically endorse these amendments and thank the noble Lords, Lord Moylan, Lord Pannick, Lord Macdonald and Lord Sandhurst, for raising this crucial issue. The issue of non-crime incidents has been of concern to a number of us for some years and it is good that it is getting some parliamentary attention at last. I particularly credit those organisations and publications...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 79 (27 Oct 2021)

Lord Anderson of Ipswich: My Lords, I put my name to Amendment 106A, which the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, has just introduced thoroughly and persuasively. Although I have sat as a part-time judge in crime for many years now, I freely admit that I do not have the depth of background in this field of other noble Lords, not least the noble Lord, Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, who I see in his place. Nevertheless, I am...

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...all sides of the House who have contributed to our debates during the passage of this Bill so far.

In particular, I would like to use this opportunity to thank my noble friend Lady Barran, who so expertly guided the Bill up to Committee; I was pleased to hear the tributes and...

Scottish Parliament: Sewage Sludge Spreading (7 Oct 2021)

Michelle Thomson: My constituents in Falkirk East are anxious for the report to be published. The spreading of sewage sludge was raised as a concern with my predecessor, Angus MacDonald, and has now been raised with me. The smell and inconvenience generate multiple complaints, but it is the potential risk to human health that is most concerning. Can the minister confirm whether the Scottish Government has...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit Impact on Supply Chain and Labour Market (30 Sep 2021)

Michelle Thomson: In the world of Brexiteers, the Tory and Labour parties and even some reporting outlets, it has become common to lay the blame for trade and supply chain problems on the pandemic rather than on Brexit. Problems are presented as a short-term shock instead of there being an acknowledgement of real long-term supply chain issues, despite evidence to the contrary. Earlier this year, the Office for...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (Discussions with United Kingdom Government) (29 Sep 2021)

Gordon MacDonald: Around 8,000 families and individuals in my constituency are on universal credit and they were already struggling before the pandemic. With the end of the furlough scheme looming, price increases across the retail sector and massive energy price hikes, cutting the £20 uplift in universal credit without carrying out an impact assessment is a complete dereliction of duty. Will the cabinet...
