Ben Wallace: ...fishing but is clearly present in agriculture, whether that is soft fruit or other parts. It is also extant for other skills. When I was a Northern Ireland Minister, there was a need for skills in the tech and digital industries, because firms were moving from Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland because they could find the skilled workforce more easily there. We have to tackle the...

EU Exit: Future Relationship White Paper - Statement (12 Jul 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...Herculean efforts along with those of my honourable friend the Member for Wycombe and the wider DExEU team to get us to this point in both the negotiations and the successful passage of the EU withdrawal Bill through Parliament.

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: .... I very much look forward to engaging with the recently established committee, chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Foster of Bath, which will take forward this work with its inquiry into the rural economy. When I arrived at Defra we went to something called a town hall meeting—when my officials told me we had to go there, I thought that I had gone to the wrong department. In my speech I...

Select Committee on Justice: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Martyn Day: .... I agree with that and will return to it later. I was pleased to listen to the hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) with his direct knowledge of and insight into the Russian psyche and economy, and to the hon. Member for Clacton (Giles Watling), who raised cyber-attacks and incursions into the North sea, which are both issues that I will return to. I look forward to hearing the...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers and Junior Ministers (28 Jun 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...Yousaf has been an outstanding Minister for Transport and the Islands. He has championed all forms of transport in Scotland. At the weekend, I saw that he has even started to take flying lessons. The Islands (Scotland) Bill, which he stewarded through the Parliament, is a major step forward for our island communities. As the minister for the beast from the east and many other unexpected...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

David Lammy: ...in thinking of those transport workers, I think of my own mother, who did her own stint at London Underground, and of many occasions meeting her at Camden Town tube station, where she was based. I think of course also of Lord Bill Morris, elected general secretary of the Transport and General Workers Union, the first black general secretary of a trade union in Britain, who found his home...

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...as a negative, rather than a positive for itself, its staff and the public. We have to be honest: business rates are an extremely antiquated system that is not fit for purpose in our globalised digital age. The UK now has the highest level of online shopping in the world, and it is essential that the duty that is paid catches up with that reality. We know that online shopping is increasing...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

David Rutley: ...do believe that this debate was over-represented by Members from Lincolnshire, although we recognise that that is another great county.

Member for High Peak (Ruth George), my DEFRA responsibilities are...

Electronic Communications (Universal Service) (Broadband) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...combating loneliness—and the noble Lord, Lord Cathcart, mentioned downloading documents. Setting it at 10 Mbps will allow all those things that he mentioned to take place. As has been mentioned, that is why the Digital Economy Act 2017 provides for the Government to direct Ofcom to undertake a review at any time, and it includes a specific requirement for a review to be undertaken...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...enterprises, which are indeed the lifeblood of rural areas. My hon. Friend will know, as I do, that rural areas typically do not benefit from large multinational employers. The backbone of rural economies are small and medium-sized enterprises, for which business rates are often a significant cost to bear. Any relief that the Government can give is always warmly welcomed, and it makes an...

Proposed Media Mergers - Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...the points raised about other platforms and their dominance—reference was made to Google, for example—we committed to reviewing the media public interest considerations during the passage of the then Digital Economy Bill.

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (30 May 2018)

Jamie Greene: ...amendment 23 and to other amendments in the group.

The committee said in its stage 1 report: “The Committee recommends that the National Islands Plan be developed with clear outcomes, targets and...

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill (30 May 2018)

Mike Rumbles: ...islanders said to the committee. Another major concern was that island proofing could be no more than a tick-box activity by the 66 public authorities that are identified in the schedule. As the bill stood, for instance, any of the 66 authorities might have been able to have someone sit in an office in the central belt and claim that they had conducted a desktop impact assessment. That...

Brexit: Competition and State Aid (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (24 May 2018)

Lord Whitty: ...and comprehensive free trade agreement with the EU would undoubtedly retain some mutual arrangements on fair competition, state aid and public procurement. Indeed, any modern free trade agreement with any major economy would probably have some such provisions—as, to a degree, would trade on WTO terms. As in many areas, “taking back control” is therefore a relative term....
