Scottish Parliament: Improving the Lives of Gypsy Travellers (14 Jan 2020)

David Torrance: ...and the local authority. Over the past two years, Fife Council has invested £2 million to upgrade the sites. Each pitch has hardstanding for caravans, an amenity block with a toilet, shower and bath, a kitchen area, hot and cold water and storage. However, it is important to note that, despite the investment, a recent report to Fife Council’s community and housing services committee...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...the importance of those apprenticeships. The apprenticeship levy is a bit like the curate’s egg—it is good in parts—but we have to be careful that we do not throw the baby out with the bath water. However, it needs reform and it was supposed to have a review. I would welcome it if the Minister could give us the timescale for the reforms and review. It could probably do with involving...

Business of the House (9 Jan 2020)

Tommy Sheppard: ...Government rather than any specific legislative proposals. I understand that the Queen’s Speech debate is important, but is it not time to get on to matters of substance? Even for a Government bathing in the afterglow of an election victory that does seem a little excessive. There are many things we ought to be discussing that are not in this business statement, and let me offer three...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill: Interpretation (8 Jan 2020)

Alan Brown: ...need to be in the EU to protect environmental standards. I know from my experience as a young civil engineer that the EU had to take a Tory Government to court to force action on cleaning up our bathing beaches across the UK. That happened purely because we were a member of the EU; otherwise we would still have raw sewage in the seas and waters around the UK.

Domestic Premises (Energy Performance) Bill [HL] - First Reading (8 Jan 2020)

...Performance Certificate; to make provision regarding performance and insulation of new heating systems in existing properties; and for connected purposes. The Bill was introduced by Lord Foster of Bath, read a first time and ordered to be printed.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (20 Dec 2019)

Meg Hillier: ...that the Government have a great belief that setting a deadline will give them greater ability to negotiate, but I think there is a real risk that they could end up throwing the baby out with the bath- water. That would not bring the country together. We are also going to see quangos rising like the phoenix, as many European regulations will have to be replicated in British law. So much...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (19 Dec 2019)

Lord Newby: ...Lord, Lord Lamont, has been consistent and forthright in his support of Brexit, so I am sure that the election result will have been music to his ears. I wonder whether he broke into song in his bath on Friday morning. I think the nation should be told. The noble Baroness, Lady Finn, made a polished and erudite speech. I hope we hear much more from her in the new Parliament—not least in...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Churches: Theft (5 Nov 2019)

Caroline Spelman: ...thefts we are seeing across the country. Thefts are moving gradually west and north along the major transport routes. This year the Church has had the first reports of metal and stone theft in the Bath & Wells Diocese and in the Yorkshire Dioceses. Tightening up of the law, therefore, needs to be accompanied by increased police resources and greater political will. Parish churches are...

Tributes to the Speaker (31 Oct 2019)

Angela Eagle: ...—had to be seen to be believed. However, if I may say so, you have driven a coach and horses through that resistance and achieved real and lasting change, which—when you are finally in your bath chair, and I know that will be a very long time from now, watching Roger Federer still winning the veterans trophy at Wimbledon—I think you will be able to sit back and reflect very much on....

Scottish Parliament: Glasgow School of Art Fire (30 Oct 2019)

James Kelly: ...the committee for the important work that it has done in the inquiry to highlight the key issues in respect of the two fires at the Glasgow School of Art. I recall leaving a meeting in May 2014 in Bath Street in Glasgow and heading up towards Sauchiehall Street. It was lunchtime; smoke was beginning to fill the sky and people were shocked and a bit fearful about what was happening. They...

Environment Bill (28 Oct 2019)

Rebecca Pow: ...of feeling on this issue and he is committed to a non-regression provision on environmental protection in legislation. A lot of comments were made about the OEP, not least by the hon. Members for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy), who is a passionate and ardent campaigner on the environment. I hope she is really going to get behind this Bill, because she has so...

Shared Rural Network - Statement (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, on these Benches, we welcome the Statement in so far as it goes, but we also note that it is not yet a done deal. I had the privilege to chair your Lordships’ Rural Economy Committee. We very quickly discovered that, on connectivity, rural areas have been left way behind. The Government told the committee that they have always recognised the need for rural areas to benefit as much...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Baroness Jolly: ...state of our cancer survival rates and one of the worst rates of depression in the EU. Some 1.4 million people this year did not receive any social care support, meaning that they went without a bath, help getting dressed in the morning or help with food, which puts a huge strain on family carers. The noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, spoke about the need of elderly people for personal...

Debate on the Address: The Climate Emergency (17 Oct 2019)

James Cartlidge: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse), but I have to say that while it is a great thing that we have generally seen more consensus on this issue in the House recently, she and the hon. Members for Workington (Sue Hayman) and for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock) have constantly made the point that the Government are doing nothing about climate change....

Business of the House (17 Oct 2019)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...£33.9 billion on the health service—a really important and significant amount of money—including £1.8 billion going to 20 specific hospitals. I am glad to say that the Royal United Hospitals Bath, which serve my constituency, will be receiving some of that additional money. I think that right hon. and hon. Members across the House should welcome the commitment that the Government are...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Wheelchair accessible shower rooms: Wheelchair accessible shower rooms (17 Oct 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...user dwelling standard M4(3) (as required by London Plan policy) does generally require every M4(3) dwelling to provide, on the entrance storey, a wet room (which may be a WC/ cloakroom or a bathroom) that contains a WC, a basin and an installed level access shower (Approved document M volume 1. Paragraph 3.37). However, is not currently possible to state exactly the proportion of M4(3)...
