Did you mean back?
Lord Thomas of Gresford: ..., and he painted a picture that underlines everything that Wolfgang Ischinger was worried about at the conference. The noble Lord, Lord West, also referred to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. My mind goes back to the black and white Pathé news reports I saw in my local Odeon when I was a boy. The burgeoning mushroom clouds from those two cities brought us initially a sense of relief that the...
Jonathan Djanogly: ...together and acted on. Let me issue a plea for moderation, common sense and risk assessment to be given more consideration in that context. That plea comes from the thousands of people who are ever more frustrated to hear that £100 billion of black money is being laundered in the UK while they have been banned or delayed from opening simple bank accounts for some petty, spurious or...
Gareth Snell: ...identification requirements at the local government elections in May. The requirements will disproportionately affect communities with large numbers of old and disabled people and people from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. Other regulations are being introduced for future metro mayor elections. Voters across Bromley, Gosport, Swindon, Woking and Watford will be required to...
Damian Hinds: As the hon. Gentleman will know, there has been some great progress in widening access in terms of social class and, for example, in terms of people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds going on to university. The access programmes that universities run are part of the reason for that. The director of fair access enables us to strengthen that further, learn from what works best and...
Lord Berkeley: ...I am not convinced that everyone will own cars by then; I think they will hire them when they want to travel, which is another challenge. We must have many more smart charging points, taking into account not just heavy goods vehicles and so on but taxis—Uber, black cabs or whatever we like—because otherwise how will they work when the vehicle works 24 hours a day and they want...
Black Rod - Retirement of Lieutenant General David Leakey and introduction of Sarah Clarke
Rosena Allin-Khan: ...-race, Pakistani-Polish girls can jump. [Laughter.] Basketball has an amazing grassroots following and reaches out to demographics that other sports simply cannot. It gathers popular support among black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and among those who come from traditionally poorer backgrounds. In the UK, basketball is the second most popular sport played by 11 to 15-year-olds,...
Lucy Frazer: The Government is committed to improving the diversity of the magistracy. Currently 54% of all magistrates are women; 11% declare themselves as being from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and 4% of the magistracy are under 40. The Lord Chief Justice has responsibility for the recruitment of magistrates. The Judicial Office has worked with the National Bench Chairs’...
Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: ...as being of huge significance in answering international cross-border crime. My heart has been changed in many ways by seeing how it has worked. The underbelly of the market, as we all know, is the black market. We have seen all the things that have benefited from the creation of markets, globally and of course across Europe. We have all the business of the electronic transfer of money and...
James Frith: ...one that has pulled together at a time of mourning recently, or a time of great testing—the Boxing day floods two years ago. There is always something fun to do and to see, whether at the chocolate festival, black pudding throwing competition—[Interruption.] It is true. Or the Head for the Hills music festival, the civic and town markets, or just a healthy mooch around the...
Gail Ross: ...can also be applied to remote and rural communities. As the representative of a large rural constituency, it is only right that I address those. When Highland Council’s director of development and infrastructure, Stuart Black, gave evidence to the committee, he told us: “Many communities, particularly remote and rural ones, are facing challenges that cannot necessarily be...
Lord Teverson: My Lords, my local authority, like many others, recycles plastic but not black plastic, which is a major proportion of all plastic. WRAP, the excellent organisation which the Minister has already referred to, has found a solution to this by changing the pigment that puts in the black colour. As an immediate action, following up the noble Baroness’s reference to energy, will the...
Baroness Thornton: ...assures us was timely and thorough? Will he accept that the winter plans have now been compromised in the light of pressure on beds, lack of staff and the fact that at least 23 trusts are now on black alert, which means that they are under very severe pressure?
Ben Lake: ...for those new challenges. He has invested in such things as body cameras and better mobile technology, and established one of the best cyber-crime teams in the United Kingdom. However, I am told that keeping his budget in the black and maintaining the number of officers on the beat is becoming an impossible task. The settlement subtly shifts the burden of funding from central Government to...
James Cartlidge: Yes, the principle is there. The powers are there in black and white and they can be used unilaterally. There is simply no way to dispute that. To return to the hypotheticals, from a Brexiteer point of view, we would want something that gives us visible signs of power back on day one. We would be out of fisheries, which is why Fishing for Leave supports membership of EFTA—it knows that...
Lord Vaux of Harrowden: ...have to do something, and get on with it quickly, or we risk losing the building or even, God forbid, someone being injured or killed. I do not think that I can say it better than our recently departed Black Rod, David Leakey, who said: “We will … be accused of sitting on our hands. What an embarrassment and a disgrace it would be to our nation if our Parliament suddenly...
Dawn Butler: ...men, wanting to cement their authority and majority, decided to give working-class men the vote, so the men in my office are also celebrating today. Working-class women, socialists, trade unionists and black, Asian and minority ethnic women were still denied a voice. Labour is the party of equality, with a proud record of advancing women’s rights. We are so proud of our achievements...
Mhairi Black: I agree.
Christina McKelvie: ...public policy making, resource allocation and stated outcomes. I say a special thank you to all the witnesses who came along to the committee and shared their experiences with us—particularly on the inequality that is faced by the black, Asian and minority ethnic population in Scotland—and those who provided written evidence. I also thank the clerks, the Scottish Parliament...
