Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (5 Feb 2020)

Kenneth Gibson: ...the 4 per cent average rise in fees in recent years. The Tories are clearly obsessed with that relatively minor part of the bill and, by not supporting it, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water.

Innovation in Hospital Design: Climate Justice — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair.] (4 Feb 2020)

Andrew Stephenson: ...(Nadia Whittome) for securing this important debate on climate justice. I am also grateful for the contributions from my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Theo Clarke), the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse), my hon. Friend the Member for West Worcestershire (Harriett Baldwin), and the hon. Members for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana), for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas), for...

Net Zero Targets and Decarbonising Transport — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (4 Feb 2020)

Gavin Newlands: ...it, but it is how I heard it. He made several good points, including his last one, on vehicle excise duty on motorhomes, which I think most of us would is agree is egregious. The hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) spoke of the Government arrangement to bring the ban on petrol and diesel cars forward, albeit without a proper plan to build the infrastructure of charging points. I think I...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: Can the noble Lord check with the Minister in reference to the report being produced by the accessibility forum team? My understanding is that it will now not come until 31 March next year, in which case it will be far too late for action to be taken on issues raised that have not been addressed.

Transport: Topical Questions (30 Jan 2020)

Wera Hobhouse: Our ancient woodlands and veteran trees, such as in Prior park in my constituency of Bath, are irreplaceable habitats and areas of beauty. What efforts are being made to avoid the destruction of ancient woodlands and chalk streams in the construction of HS2?

Special Educational Needs and Disability Funding — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (29 Jan 2020)

Wera Hobhouse: ...how we deal with and provide for those who need support. It impacts on all children if we do not support those with special educational needs. I want to draw attention quickly to the situation in Bath and North East Somerset. Like the rest of the country, we deal with a growing number of children who require SEND provision, with less funding to do so. More than 1,350 children now need...

Apprenticeship Levy - Question (28 Jan 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, further to the question of the noble Lord, Lord Grade, I am sure the Minister is aware that the vital creative industries currently have 70,000 vacancies, so they desperately need an apprenticeship scheme which works for them. The current scheme clearly does not; some 75% of money raised by the creative industries for the levy is not being spent on those industries. I accept that...

Scottish Parliament: Holocaust Memorial Day (28 Jan 2020)

Anas Sarwar: ...they are different. That difference is used to allow prejudice and hatred against communities and the othering of whole communities. We forget, which leads to mass deportations, torture, blood baths and murder. We forget, which leads to injustice that is based purely on someone’s nationality, their faith, the colour of their skin, their sexuality or their gender. We do forget, and it...

TV Licence Fee Enforcement - Question (23 Jan 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I too welcome the Secretary of State. Will she confirm that the terms of the currently BBC charter specifically rule out any change to the BBC’s mission or public purposes during the whole of its lifetime? What assurances can the Secretary of State give that no steps will be taken, including the decriminalisation of licence fee offences, which would cost £200 million a year to...

North Cotswold Line — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (22 Jan 2020)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: .... The journey from Worcester to London, for example, which is 120 miles, has an end-to-end speed of just 57 mph, compared with the speed from equivalent towns such as Leamington Spa, at 76 mph; Bath, at 77 mph; Swindon, at a very fast 84 mph; and Rugby, at 99 mph. This is a slow service at the moment, and much could be done to improve it. The journey time between Paddington and Worcester...

Gift Vouchers - Question (22 Jan 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, although unexpired and unused, my One4all gift card that was originally worth £40 is now worth only £25.60. I discovered in the small print that each month after 18 months an inactive balance charge of 90p is deducted from the card. Other owners of the cards have described this as a scam and, not surprisingly, 68% of users have given them the lowest possible rating on Trustpilot....

Scottish Parliament: Robert Burns in the Scottish Economy (21 Jan 2020)

Colin Smyth: ...and farmed by Burns in 1788 and is where he penned many famous verses including “Auld Lang Syne”. People can also visit the Brow well—renowned for its healing qualities, although, in truth, bathing in the freezing waters probably did Burns more harm than good. Fortunately, healthcare in Dumfries has improved markedly since then. The University of Glasgow research report highlights...

Economy and Jobs (20 Jan 2020)

Richard Holden: .... If we are going to ban people from walking into bookmakers to gamble large sums, we should also look at the gambling that can take place in people’s homes, in people’s bedrooms or even in the bath. It is one of those things that reach into every aspect of people’s lives, and I think it is a really important thing that the Government should look at in the coming years. I will...

Health and Social Care (16 Jan 2020)

Elliot Colburn: ...Emperor once pitched up camp there. However, during an excavation of what is now the Beddington sewerage farm, it was discovered that instead of a hoard from Roman legions it was, rather, a Roman bath house that occupied the site. If we fast-forward to the Tudor period—I know my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House will be very excited to hear this section—we find that Carshalton...
