Scottish Parliament: Health (18 Jan 2017)

Ruth Maguire: ...might not want to draw attention to those issues, but I must say that I found it quite astounding that a motion that is focused on reducing health inequality did not at any point mention the income inequality and poverty that is at its heart.

Delegated Legislation: Defibrillators in Public Areas (16 Jan 2017)

David Mowat: many lives. There is no question but that if defibrillators were available in time, the figure would be at least doubled and perhaps increased by more than that.

We need to achieve two things: we need to create more...

Mike Kane: ...overweight or obese before they start primary school, and the figure rises to one in three by the time they leave year 6.

Member for Macclesfield is the only Member who has mentioned mental health today—and diabetes....

Scottish Parliament: Tackling Mesothelioma (20 Dec 2016)

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Chi Onwurah: ...highlighted in the Science and Technology Committee’s most recent report, the Government’s communication of its Brexit and science strategy—the Minister’s speech notwithstanding—has been woefully insufficient. Why is science not at the heart of the Government’s Brexit strategy when it is at the heart of our economy? The Government say they will match the...

Air Quality — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (15 Dec 2016)

Jeff Smith: ...such as Manchester, is increasingly acknowledged as a public health crisis. We know that air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths a year, that air pollution is linked to cancer, asthma, strokes and heart disease, and that 3,000 of our schools are on sites with dangerous levels of air pollution. The report is particularly timely in light of the EU referendum result. There is no doubt...

Equality: Autumn Statement (14 Dec 2016)

Jane Ellison: ...address it in the long term, which my hon. Friend the Member for Fareham (Suella Fernandes) touched on. We have just heard from the Opposition that “aspiration” is an empty word. Actually, at the heart of Conservative Members’ contributions has been the idea that it is aspiration that will address this problem in the long term, and that can be seen in some of the actions...

UK Sovereign Wealth Fund — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (14 Dec 2016)

Simon Kirby: serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I start by thanking my hon. Friend the Member for Weston-super-Mare (John Penrose) for securing this debate today. The issues it raises go to the heart of the Government’s economic approach, which is to get our finances in order and to build for the long term-success of the country.

Businesses: Rights and Responsibilities - Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2016)

Lord Taylor of Warwick: ...of Astley Abbotts, for securing this timely debate today. There are many important issues presently concerning the corporate sector, but I believe that, first and foremost, there is a biblical foundation. As we see in the Gospels, Christ spent much of his time ministering in the marketplace. Of the 12 disciples that Jesus called forth, most were businessmen, not synagogue ministers. Six...

Scottish Parliament: Disability Delivery Plan (8 Dec 2016)

Mark Griffin: ...the Presiding Officer and the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body for their good offices in again making the Parliament an exemplar in the provision of access to people who are deaf and who use British Sign Language.

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (2 Dec 2016)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...that I have sat in since I have been a Member of the House. I apologise in advance if all that is about to change. The most reverend Primate started off by talking about the untidiness of the British approach and the difficulty of justifying it on logical grounds but said that it worked. Members of the House of Lords should have no difficulty in identifying with that particular precept....

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2016)

the Archbishop of Canterbury: ..., loyalties and values—what I will call values in this speech—we will just go with the wind. The catalyst for attempting to codify our shared national values—what the Government have called “fundamental British values”—is the threat of violent extremism in our country and, to a lesser extent, questions about immigration and integration, inequality and...

Chilcot Inquiry and Parliamentary Accountability (30 Nov 2016)

Robert Courts: ..., industrious, creative, hard-working people creating world-beating industries in IT, Formula 1, travel and clothes, and each year hosting thousands of visitors from across the world.
