Animals (Low Welfare Activities Abroad) Bill (17 Mar 2023)

Alex Sobel: ...Bill to this stage, and I hope we can get it a quick and successful conclusion and send it on its way. I am grateful to have this second opportunity to progress measures for international animal conservation today, after the earlier Bill from the hon. Member for Crawley (Henry Smith)—I hope this one will have the same success. It is a shame, though, that this legislation has to come via...

Child Support (Enforcement) Bill (17 Mar 2023)

Karen Buck: speeding up the process by which the absent parent can be made to pay. However, we do not think it will resolve all problems with the CMS. Nor, it is fair to say, is it intended to, as I am sure Conservative Members would agree. I think everyone recognises that we are a very long way from having a Child Maintenance Service that ensures that all absent parents meet their responsibilities...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill: Clause 2 - Animals to which the import prohibition relates (17 Mar 2023)

Mark Francois: ...excellent successor, my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Anna Firth), who is in her place beside me. Among those closely watching the debate on this crucial Bill will be members of the Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation, led by its redoubtable founder Mrs Lorraine Platt, who has campaigned tirelessly on this issue and many others related to animal welfare for years. She was...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill: New Clause 1 - Duration of this Act (17 Mar 2023)

Trudy Harrison: ...). I commend the principle of receiving expert advice on this matter, especially given the credible and variable discussions, and recognising that, in some cases, money from trophy hunting supports conservation. On Third Reading, I will set out what we are currently doing and how we will continue to support countries. I also support amendment 1, tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for...

Written Answers — Department for Education: STEM Subjects: Women (17 Mar 2023)

Jo Gideon: ...reference to International Women's Day on 8 March 2023, what progress the Government has made on encouraging more girls into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers, including conservation.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Birds: Conservation (17 Mar 2023)

David Warburton: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to protect the habitat of woodcock birds.

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...this great country can achieve is, frankly, laughable. That is why Labour has set the ambitious but achievable goal of securing the highest sustainable growth in the G7. We want to lead, while the Conservatives seem happy to languish at the bottom of the international league tables. Despite various initiatives, relaunches and even ministerial reshuffles, our economy remains smaller now...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation - Income Tax (Charge) (16 Mar 2023)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...know. As my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Sir Stephen Timms) said, they never seem to miss an opportunity to give something away to those at the top. Most of all, we have had another Conservative Budget and another set of lost opportunities to rise to the challenges we face. Fundamentally, it is a Budget for growth that downgrades growth. Many Members have rightly highlighted...

Backbench Business: Car Parking: Care Workers — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (16 Mar 2023)

Damien Moore: ...badge has already been trialled nationwide throughout covid by the Government’s scheme, and was a resounding success. Both macro research from Engage Britain and micro research, such as anecdotal conservations with my constituents, show the huge benefits that free car parking has had and will continue to have if reimplemented. It is a low-cost, low-admin solution with tangible benefits...

Saudi Arabia: Execution of Hussein Abo al-Kheir - Commons Urgent Question (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...punishment for drugs offences. This is a welcome move globally but draws attention to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I too recognise the involvement of the Minister; however, I note the concerns of Conservative MPs who claimed that more could have been done. My questions relate to the consequences of our relationship with the Kingdom. The Trade Minister, the noble Lord, Lord Johnson,...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Bridges of Headley: ...will snuff out the enterprise, innovation and investment we need to power growth. More fundamentally, they conflict with the basic belief that I thought—or maybe should not think any more—most Conservatives held, that people, not Government, are best placed to spend their money as they see fit, to the benefit of all. Worst of all, far from taking the highway to prosperity, we risk...

Business of the House (16 Mar 2023)

Bob Blackman: ...helpful if we could have a statement from the relevant Minister on the arrangements for communities to celebrate in the time-honoured fashion. Will the Leader of the House join me in congratulating Conservative-run Harrow Council, which has agreed to waive all fees for street parties on such a celebratory day?

Health and Disability White Paper (16 Mar 2023)

Rachel Hopkins: Waiting times for Access to Work grants have skyrocketed under the Conservative Government, with the average clearance time now more than two months. Although plans to enhance the Access to Work support offer are welcome, how does the Minister plan to reduce waiting times so that disabled people can access the support that is available before an employer pulls a job offer?

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Hunting Trophy Import (Prohibition) Bill (16 Mar 2023)

Anthony Mangnall: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what response she has provided to the letter dated 22 February 2023 from Dr Dilys Roe, Chair of the International Union for Conservation of Nature Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group, on the Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill; and if she will place a copy of that response in the Library.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Forests and Trees: Conservation (16 Mar 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to their Tree health resilience strategy, published on 25 May 2018, what progress they have made in each year since 2018 in respect of the goals they identified to improve the (1) extent, (2) connectivity, (3) diversity, and (4) condition, of trees, woods and forests in England.

Scottish Parliament: Constitutional Futures Division (16 Mar 2023)

Angus Robertson: Let us get this right. The position of the Conservative Party is that it wishes to abolish the part of the civil service that is dealing with retained EU law management, devolution, intergovernmental relations and the provision of information for the Covid public inquiries. Is that seriously the position of the Conservative Party? If Sandesh Gulhane is genuinely interested in freeing up civil...

Scottish Parliament: Global Climate Emergency (16 Mar 2023) tackling climate change, and rightly so. [ Interruption .] It is particularly notable that we have achieved that leadership status in the teeth of knee-jerk, opportunistic opposition from the Conservatives to almost every proposal that we have put forward. Their hypocrisy is breathtaking. When we look at the proposals that we have made to encourage people to travel to work in ways other...

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Government Spring Budget (16 Mar 2023)

...outlook is better than previously feared but still very bad, and that the UK Parliament is on course to be “the worst Parliament on record for living standards” by a country mile. That is the Conservatives’ responsibility and record. Kenny Gibson has raised the matter of carbon capture. This Government was deeply disappointed that we had no further clarity yesterday on a timeline for...

Scottish Parliament: Ferguson Marine (16 Mar 2023)

John Swinney: that yard. We have been doing that, although we get criticised for it. The investment has been put in. [ Interruption .] I do not think there is much support for investment in the yard from the Conservative side of the chamber, from what I can hear being shouted at me in the background, but I assure Mr Bibby of the Government’s commitment to invest in the yard for the future.

Scottish Parliament: Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (16 Mar 2023)

Jamie Greene: I am pleased to open for the Conservatives in this afternoon’s debate on the Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill. I thank my committee colleagues, our clerks and advisers, and the many witnesses who gave evidence to us during the creation of what I think is a forensic report. As the convener rightly pointed out, every member of the committee played a constructive part in its...
