Scottish Parliament: Proposed Rent Freeze (29 Sep 2022)

The First Minister: First, I do not think that emergency legislation is ideal. I would rather that we were not in the position of having to introduce emergency legislation to protect people from the impact of rent increases, but I also wish that we were not in a deteriorating cost of living crisis that has been caused and is, right now, being exacerbated by Liz Smith’s party in government...

Scottish Parliament: Excellence in Scottish Education (29 Sep 2022)

Graeme Dey: Earlier this month, during the debate on the programme for government, Liz Smith made some legitimate points about the expectation of the public that both of Scotland’s Governments would work together to address the cost of living crisis. It would be reasonable of me to observe that, in order for them to work together, the relationship requires to be respectful and one of equals, and that...

Sanctions (22 Sep 2022)

Jesse Norman: I would rather not, because I have not much time, but let me just say this. My hon. Friend talked about the extension of designation, and this makes the point about the evolving nature of the threat. It is important to get the sanctions in quickly, but as the response evolves, so we must evolve it, and that is what we have done. Being associated with a designated person now includes obtaining...

Ukraine (22 Sep 2022)

Leo Docherty: I am very grateful to all Members for their contributions to this extremely useful debate today. I am also grateful to those on the Opposition Front Bench for their constructive and positive tone. The hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard) correctly pointed out that this is Putin’s war—not Russia’s war—and that he is to blame, not the Russian people. We are in...

Business of the House (22 Sep 2022)

Richard Burgon: A 1993 rule introduced by the then Government said that inheritance tax does not have to be paid on the transfer of assets from one sovereign to another. At the time, the then Leader of the Opposition, the late John Smith, asked: “although it is accepted that assets held by the Queen as sovereign should not be liable to inheritance tax, will the Prime Minister explain why all private assets...

Shale Gas Extraction (22 Sep 2022)

Cat Smith: It appears that the only person who believes that fracking will lower our gas prices is the Secretary of State. That view is certainly not backed up by anyone in industry, and there is no question over the environmentally damaging nature of fracking. However, one thing that he is perhaps not aware of is the strength of opposition to fracking in communities such as mine in Lancashire, where...

Energy Prices: Support for Business (22 Sep 2022)

Cat Smith: Many small businesses in the Lune valley and Over Wyresdale in my constituency use heating oil. Although the price has not increased as much or as fast as the gas price, it has still increased exponentially and many small businesses are really struggling to know how they will make ends meet. How soon will these businesses get any clarification from this Government about whether they will...

Scottish Parliament: Child Protection Policies (22 Sep 2022)

Elizabeth Smith: I am sure that the minister is aware of the article in the Perthshire edition of The Courier on 5 September that reported a high absence rate among child protection committee members. The committee encompasses Perth and Kinross Council and NHS Tayside staff. Over two years, there were 148 apologies, with three members of the committee missing on 12, 11 and nine occasions respectively. What...

Scottish Parliament: Skills Delivery Landscape (22 Sep 2022)

Jamie Hepburn: There are few areas in Government that are as important as equipping people with the knowledge and skills that they need to thrive in life and in the world of work. It is key to our vision for delivering a strong, resilient economy and a society that has people and their wellbeing at its heart. Today, I am announcing our intention to initiate an independent review of the skills delivery...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Transformation (21 Sep 2022)

Elizabeth Smith: I think that there is some substance to debating the issue. We will leave it there. This afternoon, the minister spelled out that, among all the gloom of the current economic forecasts, there is at least some good news for Scotland, in the trends in inward investment and exports. That is good news, and we should acknowledge it. We should especially acknowledge that, according to the EY...

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Applications (20 Sep 2022)

Scottish Parliament: Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (20 Sep 2022)

Elizabeth Smith: Last week, in his address to the chamber, the King said this: “Through all the years of her reign, the Queen, like so many generations of our family before her, found in the hills of this land and in the hearts of its people a haven and a home.”—[ Official Report , 12 September 2022; c 10.] That message is so much in tune with the wonderful photograph, taken by the Countess of Wessex,...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Sep 2022)

Lord Coaker: ..., it is a sad privilege to stand up and address the Chamber as we come towards the end of this tribute. I start by paying respect to the wonderful way in which the Lord Privy Seal opened the debate, followed by my noble friend Lady Smith, the noble Lord, Lord Newby, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, who set the tone for the whole debate. I do not want to repeat all the various...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

Henry Smith: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing me this opportunity to express respect, sorrow and thanks to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on behalf of my constituents in Crawley, myself and my family. Since we heard the news that we all feared on Thursday with her passing away, much has been said about how she had been a constant presence in our lives personally and nationally. Few...

Tributes to Her Late Majesty The Queen (9 Sep 2022)

Greg Smith: It is humbling to take part in this very special session as we mourn Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We have heard powerful tributes and wonderful words. As I have sat and reflected for coming on 10 and a half hours of those wonderful tributes, I have thought that, actually, there might not be the words in our language—there might not be the phrases powerful enough—to express the...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (9 Sep 2022)

the Earl of Devon: My Lords, I salute Her glorious and beloved Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Given her age and recent frailty, we have all, I am sure, imagined this day, but in its awesome realisation, I think we find it almost unimaginable and wholly surreal. We are, as a nation, bereft, with tears flowing unexpectedly and a peculiar ache of loss. Her Majesty reigned for so long that this time feels...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (9 Sep 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord True, has spoken for us all in his very moving tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. That we should feel not just grief and sadness but shock at the passing of our Queen at the age of 96 is extraordinary. It is not just our nations that are deeply shaken. Across the world, from great leaders to schoolchildren, we all feel that we have lost something special...

Social Security (Special Rules for End of Life) Bill [Lords] (8 Sep 2022)

Chloe Smith: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. It is a pleasure to move the Second Reading of the Bill in this role, and I welcome the new member of my ministerial team, the Minister of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury (Victoria Prentis), who will be at the Dispatch Box for the later stages of this Bill. For a person to find out that their illness cannot be cured can be...
