Arts Council England: Regional Distribution of Funding - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Baroness Fleet: My Lords, it is a pleasure and also a challenge, I must say, to speak today. I declare my arts and education interests as listed in the register, including as a national council member of Arts Council England. It is an honour to follow the noble Earl, who speaks so passionately about the arts and with such knowledge. I congratulate my noble friends Lord Mendoza and Lord Vaizey for setting out...

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, for securing this debate and the noble Lord, Lord Bruce, for his excellent introduction.

Development and diplomacy are our...

Jim Shannon: ...Valley (Alexander Stafford), who cannot be ignored—indeed, he was not ignored in the Chamber today by you, Mr Bone. He is certainly a gentleman who sets the scene well on subjects that he is interested in and knowledgeable about. As part of our climate change goals, greening our financial system has become a priority, and the hon. Members for Sheffield, Hallam and for Rother Valley are...

Covid-19: Economic Impact of Lockdowns — [Mrs Sheryll Murray in the Chair] (29 Nov 2022)

Esther McVey: ...Professor Townsend, Professor Carl Heneghan and Professor Robert Dingwall, who asked those all-important questions.

Public Service Broadcasting: BBC Centenary - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2022)

Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury: ...were the movies. The BBC put the two together, movies and radio, and it has continued to lead as an innovator—not something that has been much mentioned in this debate—working in the public interest with the likes of iPlayer and BBC Sounds, not just establishing new technologies but setting standards for the whole media industry. It led on rolling out the digital switchover and created...

Climate Change and Human Security — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (3 Nov 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...Member for Bath was right to talk about Putin’s hostile actions in Ukraine, which have drawn energy security to the forefront of people’s minds.

Section 21 Evictions — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (25 Oct 2022)

Dan Carden: ...call home: living in limbo; never certain of when their time may be up; having to pack up belongings, leave support networks and potentially change employment —all at immense personal, mental and financial cost. Children being unmoored and having to move schools or leave friends and family behind can have a lifelong impact on learning and development. My constituency office recently...

Cost of Living: Public Well-being - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2022)

Baroness Drake: ...benefits and who suffers on the journey plan are at the heart of the markets’ and the public’s failing confidence in the Government. The Government have frightened the ordinary people whose interests they were elected to protect. The Government are now so deeply divided that chaos will of itself undermine market confidence in the UK. Borrowers faced paying the price for the market’s...

Early General Election — [David Mundell in the Chair] (17 Oct 2022)

Catherine McKinnell: .... Concern was heightened by the fact that she received the backing of only 31% of her own MPs in the final ballot. By comparison, in 2019, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) received 51% of votes in the final ballot, and in 2016, the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May) received 60%. It did not end well for them, so is a Prime Minister with less...

Health and Social Care Levy (Repeal) Bill: New Clause 1 - Review of effects of Act on revenue sources of health and social care expenditure (11 Oct 2022)

Steve Brine: ...2050. When I was in the Department of Health, we wrote the child obesity strategy. It is fair to say that the former Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), did not like a lot of it when he was running for the leadership of our party. In fact, I think he referred to the sugar tax as a sin tax, but—let the sinner repent—he came...

Ukraine (22 Sep 2022)

Stewart McDonald: I am grateful, Madam Deputy Speaker. I nodded along in agreement with much of what the former Prime Minister, the right hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) said. I think it fair to say that when the February invasion took place, he and his Government, particularly the Defence Ministers on the Front Bench today, got the calls on Ukraine right. It is important to...

CHOGM, G7 and NATO Summits (4 Jul 2022)

Boris Johnson: ...destroying a Ukrainian shopping centre, killing at least 18 people. This barbaric attack on an obviously civilian target strengthened the resolve of my fellow leaders to provide Ukraine with more financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic backing for, and I quote the communiqué, “as long as it takes”. That is exactly the term later echoed by NATO. The G7 has pledged nearly $30...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, this has been a long and interesting debate, covering many varied and important issues across a range of portfolios. There have been a number of memorable speeches, to which I have listened intently and of which I have taken note—but the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, will be relieved to hear that I will not single out any particular revolutionary from the rest of the pack....

Scottish Parliament: Ferries (Construction Contract) (4 May 2022)

...back to the issue: £259 million pounds of investment was pledged and secured by this Government to turn drug deaths around. The other issue that Douglas Ross mentioned was council budgets. In this financial year, the Scottish Government budget—this comes from the Scottish Fiscal Commission—was cut by Westminster by 5 per cent in real terms, but due to the decisions taken by this...

Appointment of Lord Lebedev (29 Mar 2022)

Sam Tarry: ...UK Defence Secretary giving Mrs Chernukhin a private tour of the Churchill War Rooms in Whitehall. Given that influence in the Conservative party is so easily bought, major questions over Russian financial influence need to be addressed urgently. Such actions put our national security at risk and potentially corrupt the very politics and democracy that we seek to uphold. We need to root...

Ukraine (24 Feb 2022)

Boris Johnson: ...maximising economic pressure on one that makes up a mere 2%. For our part, today the UK is announcing the largest and most severe package of economic sanctions that Russia has ever seen. With new financial measures we are taking new powers to target Russian finance. In addition to the banks we have already sanctioned this week, today, in concert with the United States, we are imposing a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (23 Feb 2022)

Conor Murphy: ...the Members, Chairs and Deputy Chairs who contributed to the Second Stage debate on the Budget Bill. It is very useful to hear the views of the respective Committees and Members on the important financial and economic issues that face us as an Administration. Many of the points were, obviously, specific to the Departments that the Committees scrutinise, and I am not in a position to answer...
