Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

James Duddridge: ...have made a decision, we say that we want to dabble with it. There are two conflicting mandates: that of the referendum and that of the majority of Members in this House. Parliament cannot have its cake and eat it. It cannot ask the public for a view and then ignore it. It cannot abdicate responsibility for providing leadership on a question and then question the result. It cannot fail to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Owen Smith: ...for. Bevan said that there is no freedom without an end to poverty. Crosland said that our job is to pursue equality and freedom. There cannot be one without the other, just as there cannot be a cake-and-eat-it Brexit. If we are to be true to that mission, we surely cannot accept any outcome that will limit the ability of our people to live and work in this country or elsewhere. What have...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Philip Hammond: The deal we have negotiated will ensure the greatest possible level of freedoms and rights for UK citizens so that they can carry on living their lives and we can carry on working, collaborating and trading with our EU partners. I am completely convinced that of the options open to us this is the right way for the country to go forward. If anyone on the Opposition Front Bench genuinely...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (1st Day) (Continued) (5 Dec 2018)

Lord Wigley: ...with the international world. They have made an appalling botch of it, which is partly why we are in such a mess today. We had the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson insisting that he could have his cake and eat it; David Davis, who led the Brexit negotiations, managed to negotiate with Michel Barnier for just four hours in two years; and, most recently, we had Dominic Raab, who negotiated...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: ...and six and a half pages on a future deal that have now been padded out to 26 pages. I find it strange that the economic analysis did not include this deal. It included the Chequers have-your-cake-and-eat-it deal, which is not what we are voting on. My constituency has an airport and an aerospace campus at one end that will be hit by the loss of the single aviation market, by the loss of...

Universal Sustainable Developments Goals - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2018)

Lord Judd: ...is no chance of generating the resources needed by the poor. Superficially, and in some ways quite realistically, that is a truth which cannot be avoided. It is right that we have to produce the cake before we slice it up and perhaps that has not been taken as seriously as it should have been in our political past. But it is not like that; for anyone who has worked anywhere near the front...

Scottish Parliament: Safeguarding Research Collaborations and Scientific Excellence (7 Nov 2018)

Joan McAlpine: ...I stand, is the seventh largest individual recipient of horizon 2020 funds—a remarkable achievement that is under threat, as Brexit-backing Tories seem to think that we can simply keep calm and carry on. That is just not good enough. Oliver Mundell and other Conservative members have accused the other parties of being too negative about this, but we are just repeating what higher...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: ...off; and a larger majority believe the negotiations are going worse than they were led to expect. The quotations from the noble Lord, Lord Campbell, were very apposite. The policy was to have our cake and eat it. The people now know that is not possible—it is not working out as they were promised—so it seems right to ask them whether they nevertheless want to go ahead. Point three: is...

Scottish Parliament: BBC Alba (19 Sep 2018)

Rhoda Grant: ...BBC Alba has been around for ever, but 10 years is a relatively short space of time for it to have had the impact that it has had. It has been at the forefront of promoting the Gaelic language. Its carrying of sport—not just shinty, but football and rugby—has promoted the channel to a much wider audience than the one that it might originally have been set up to serve, but that...

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: ...Democrats: the objective of the British state should be to stay within key European economic frameworks. Unfortunately, of course, the British Government continue to be wedded to a “have your cake and eat it” scenario, which obviously the European Union will not entertain. The French European Minister Nathalie Loiseau clearly told in the Evening Standard last Wednesday: “We will not...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill: Exemption for buildings used as nursery grounds (10 Jul 2018)

David Linden: .... The term “market garden” has no statutory definition, but using several examples of case law, it argued that a hereditament is a market garden if any part of a process of horticulture is carried on there with a view to ultimate consumption by the public, even though the produce of the hereditament is not itself, when it leaves the hereditament, an article capable of consumption by...

The NHS - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: ...four leading health and social care bodies reported that to qualify for publicly funded social care, someone now needs to be 12% poorer than eight years ago. Meanwhile, informal carers continue to carry the bulk of the burden. The IPPR estimates that insufficient social care costs the NHS £3 billion a year, and with an ageing population these costs are bound to increase. If we are serious...

Scottish Parliament: Celebrating Scotland’s Volunteers (5 Jun 2018)

Monica Lennon: ...can play a crucial role in alleviating feelings of social isolation or in achieving a clearer sense of purpose. We know that loneliness has a significant impact on mental health and that it carries an increased risk for particular groups, such as disabled people and older people. Disabled people and older people are underrepresented in voluntary participation, and that strikes me as a lot...

British Sign Language: National Curriculum — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (5 Mar 2018)

Dawn Butler: ...are doing here today—and the House authorities for providing a live subtitle feed. We are following in the footsteps of New Zealand and Australia in doing that. I know that it was not a piece of cake, but as with most things, the more we do them, the easier they get. We just need to do these things a lot more in this place, and then they will seem like nothing. We have heard a lot about...

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: ...must be given the opportunity to catch more fish. The region’s catch sector predominantly comprises the inshore fleet which, as has been well documented, does not get a fair slice of the cake. Moreover, we suffer from the worst excesses of the flagship debacle, with six vessels of the Lowestoft Fish Producers Organisation never coming near the port and landing their catches in the...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee: Misuse of Xanax (15 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: ...media. Following the death of Lil Peep, the rapper Lil Pump, who previously had a song called “4 Xans” and other songs with references to Xanax, and who had posed for a picture with a Xanax cake to celebrate achieving 1 million followers on Instagram, announced on new year’s day that he would no longer be taking Xanax. Three-time Grammy winning artist Chance the Rapper has also been...

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: That is grounds for huge concern, because these trade negotiators will be up against expert teams that have been carrying out such negotiations for many years, and this is not just about the EU deal. If it is the British Government’s intention, as one of their first options, to take on the United States in trade negotiations, I would advise them to take the advice of the experts who told...

EU: Transition Deal - Question for Short Debate (19 Oct 2017)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...union because we do not agree to the four pillars—the free movement of goods, services, capital and people—or the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Yet she states that we want to carry on trading on the same terms. How can that happen? This smacks of having our cake and eating it, and we have been warned that that is specifically not on the table. The Government have...

English Baccalaureate: Creative and Technical Subjects - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Lord Nash: ...Lords before—is the higher-level BTEC diploma in fish husbandry, a subject in which there were no formal exams, only coursework, but which counted for four GCSEs. Other favourites of mine include cake decorating and hazard control; sadly, there are many other examples. Head teachers and teachers inevitably respond to the incentives that are put on them; those were the wrong incentives....

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink Strategy (14 Sep 2017)

Willie Coffey: ...park. The visitors were able to enjoy a wide range of locally produced food, including chilli from Fenwick, ice creams from Galston, speciality canapés from businesses in Kilmarnock and amazing cake creations from Newmilns. There were many hot-food demonstrations from a number of creative local businesses, with tasting sessions and the chance to wash it all down with ethical ales from...
