Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: With respect to the Minister, I am not persuaded that that will be agreed by the European Commission. Of course ECJ jurisprudence will be Supreme Court jurisprudence in this country and will be referenced by judges in that Court, but without a statutory anchor ensuring that the fundamental right is, in their view, in favour of the consumer and the data subject, we risk divergence on the...

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

John Glen: ... and measured outcomes that exist—we have heard good examples today—the more compelling the case is to strengthen the resolve across Government.

The evidence was that its awards and...

Petition - Myanmar’S Muslim Ethnic Minority: University Vice-Chancellors: Pay (11 Oct 2017)

Andrew Murrison: ..., as I believe we are in this case, we wonder what is happening more generally in this sector. Universities have charitable status. The Higher Education Funding Council governs that, with this subcontracted by the Charities Commission, which has written to me on this subject. It is important that we emphasise that charities—universities, in this case—have charitable purposes;...

Advice Services (Nottingham) — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: ...various reasons. As we head into the Budget, Ministers should be mindful of the cumulative impact and ripple effect of their cuts, especially unseen cuts, such as those to local government, which then go through different commissioning committees and end up with changes that perhaps were not meant in that way. Finally, I want to use my remaining time to talk about universal credit, which...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Justin Madders: ...Week. I hope that these extremely valuable debates will become an annual fixture, because they provide us with a very valuable opportunity to raise awareness of the work of the 40 baby loss charities who work together as the Baby Loss Awareness Week Alliance. They also give us the opportunity to assess what progress has been made in meeting our shared ambitions to improve prevention,...

Baroness Manningham-Buller: ...access for researchers to, “currently available national datasets should be accelerated by streamlining legal and ethical approvals”. We are not there yet.

In many cases, there is significant...

Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Wayne David: ...debate today, because tomorrow is Battle of Britain Day and today is Support Our Soldiers Day. I have seen people taking to the streets of London to raise awareness of and funds for ABF The Soldiers Charity. There can be no doubt that today, sadly, our armed forces as a whole face a crisis of recruitment and retention. In figures from the Ministry of Defence published only this morning, we...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: National Trust (14 Sep 2017)

Khalid Mahmood: Alongside the National Trust, the Minister will be aware of the press coverage over the weekend about a number of high-profile charities that own seats in the Albert Hall. Trustees of those charities have been selling those seats at a very high price. That is a despicable practice; it is no way for such charities to act in a modern society. Will the Minister support the Charity Commission in...

Business of the House (Today): Nomination of Members to Committees (12 Sep 2017)

Chris Matheson: .... However, that was only the most recent aspect of the twisting of the rules. We saw the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014, which required charities not to get involved in politics and potentially prevented them from scrutinising the activities of this Government. It did not apply to corporations or to newspapers, which are so keen to...

Scottish Parliament: Barclay Review of Non-domestic Rates (12 Sep 2017)

Derek Mackay: ...meetings that I have held with a range of organisations since publication to discuss the report and how it should be implemented. It is a measure of the importance that we place on the economy that we commissioned the Barclay review in the first place.
