Harriett Baldwin: ...glad that the hearing aid of the hon. Member for Falkirk (John Mc Nally) did not cause any faltering in his excellent speech as a member of the Environmental Audit Committee. The hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) highlighted that this is not a new issue. I am old enough to remember the slogan “Plant a tree in ‘73”. I will not embarrass the House by asking other hon. Members to...

Retail Strategy — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2019)

Jim Shannon: .... People have busy lives. My parliamentary aide works until 5, collects her children and brings them home to begin to make their dinner at 5.30. They eat their dinner, have story time and their bath, and then they are in bed for 7.30. She then is faced with the dilemma of whether to go to the shopping centre and run into Asda, or to sit in the comfort of her home and order things online....

Active Travel — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (9 Jul 2019)

Robert Courts: ...that, no matter how many points we think we have covered when writing a speech, there are always some that we have not, and other hon. Members always come along and raise them. The hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) and my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine) made an excellent point about school travel plans: cycling must be safe for a 12-year-old. I know how...

Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Lord Adonis: ...went straight up to £9,000. Universities could barely absorb the cash, which is the reason why the vice-chancellors are being paid £300,000 to £400,000, and in the case of the University of Bath—which I am afraid I got rather involved in because it was such a scandal—a salary of £500,000. It is not just the people at the top; there was a huge increase in the size of senior...

Problem Gambling - Statement (2 Jul 2019)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. I am a member of your Lordships’ Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry Committee.

It has given me the opportunity...

Religious Slaughter of Farm Animals (2 Jul 2019)

George Eustice: ...a moving shackle line for chickens, whose throats are cut randomly by people as they go past, but what happens if they miss a chicken? What happens if the chicken is not stunned through a water bath and they fail to cut its throat? The answer is that it probably proceeds to the next stage of production, which if I am not mistaken is a scolding tank to remove the feathers. It could enter...

Online Homophobia — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Jul 2019)

Wera Hobhouse: It is a pleasure, Mr Walker, to serve under your chairmanship. I am happy to contribute today and to represent the 159 constituents from Bath who signed this petition, but I also want to pay tribute to those who initiated the petition and the many thousands who have signed it. It is shameful that a debate about online homophobic abuse is necessary in 2019. Intolerance anywhere is...
