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.

Tobias Ellwood: ...which areas he means. We have specific programmes tailored to certain countries in different parts of Africa, which are nuanced to reflect what is actually happening on the ground. Our Westminster Foundation for Democracy and the British Council are engaged on that, and a lot of work that the Department for International Development does through NGOs is directly connected to trying to get...

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. If the rivers are the lifeblood of west Oxfordshire, the market towns are the beating heart. I pause at this stage to fly, as it were, to proud, modern Carterton and nearby Brize Norton—home of the...

Scottish Parliament: Lung Disease (30 Nov 2016)

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...majority of Conservative MPs actually supported remain. The majority of Conservative Peers actually supported remain. I know this. I compiled the list and I published it in the Daily Telegraph. I worked at the heart of the campaign and I am afraid that my report card for Labour during the campaign would have been, “Should have tried harder—much harder”. However, we are...

Scottish Parliament: Culture, Creative Industries and Tourism (European Union Referendum) (29 Nov 2016)

Tom Arthur: ...the European Union is more than the sum of various treaties and trade agreements. I stated my belief that our European citizenship gives expression to our ancient sense of European identity. At the heart of that shared identity is a shared set of values and, crucially, a shared culture. I am therefore grateful to have the opportunity to contribute to the debate, which, in its consideration...

Digital Economy Bill: Age-verification regulator’s power to direct internet service providers to block access to material (28 Nov 2016)

Claire Perry: ...voluntarily. It was not just me and other colleagues in the House who were concerned. Bodies such as Christian Action Research and Education, the Children’s Charities Coalition for Internet Safety, the NSPCC, the British Board of Film Classification, which is now the regulator, and the Digital Policy Alliance were concerned that this sensible provision for age verification would not...

Autumn Statement (23 Nov 2016)

Philip Hammond: ...scheme, which I am today extending until at least 2026. The new capital investment I have announced will provide the financial backbone for the Government’s industrial strategy that the Prime Minister spoke about on Monday, a firm foundation upon which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will work with industry to build our...

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

Justin Madders: ...groups unable to keep their spending within budget, we repeat our view that the financial problems are endemic and this is not sustainable.” Perhaps he will listen to the Nuffield Trust, King’s Fund and the Health Foundation, which in a joint statement released this week said: “The Department of Health’s budget will increase by just over 4 billion in real...

Heathrow Expansion: Air Quality — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Nov 2016)

Tania Mathias: ...serious concern. Only 11 cities in the United Kingdom breached the annual legal limit in the early part of this year, and London is in the top four. Particulate matter contributes to fatalities from strokes, heart disease, lung cancer and acute and chronic respiratory diseases. The cost in human terms is that 9,000 deaths a year in Greater London are attributable to nitrogen dioxide or...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Nov 2016)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: ...reach camps, whether run by the local Government or the UN, their identity is preserved to prevent their further abuse through rape, trafficking and forced marriage and to reunite them with their family, which forms the heart of child protection mechanisms through the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Those recommendations are part of the set of recommendations that have come from...

HS2 Update: Defibrillators (Availability) (15 Nov 2016)

Maria Caulfield: ...of the Bill is to increase the rates of survival from non-hospital cardiac arrests across the UK. Currently, our record in this country for survival from cardiac arrest is dismal. According to the British Heart Foundation, almost 30,000 cardiac arrests a year occur outside hospitals, and less than 10% of the people who suffer those cardiac arrests survive. In fact, in parts of England...

Policing and Crime Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (9 Nov 2016)

Baroness Berridge: ...brake discs, let alone servo-assisted brakes. You did not have to wear a seatbelt and airbags were still the stuff of fantasies. Your Lordships just have to cast your mind back to the series “Heartbeat”, and think of what the emergency services looked like then—the arched top of the ambulance, the canvas stretchers, the siren. There were no air ambulances, no fire crews...

EU: Unaccompanied Migrant Children (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ..., especially in dealing with the thousands of children caught up in conflict. The report quite rightly points out that this is the greatest humanitarian challenge to have faced the European Union since its foundation. We are a full member of the European Union and, until we formally leave, we have a duty to play our full role, as the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, said. I hope, as I am sure do...

National Citizen Service Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (25 Oct 2016)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: ...groups have given us: a brand-new allotment at one of our special educational needs schools; a rugby sevens tournament to encourage more young people into sport, following one of the groups’ work with the British Heart Foundation; hours of volunteer support for people in sheltered housing and care homes, and the collection of food and care donations for those people; and fetes, and...
