Nigel Huddleston: ...him my friend with sincerity—you, Madam Deputy Speaker, were in the Chair when I gave my maiden speech. You will also be in the Chair while I make my final speech of this Parliament. I support the Bill wholeheartedly as it is consumer-friendly from beginning to end.

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: As the hon. Lady knows, I support the USO and campaigned very hard to ensure that we got it into the Digital Economy Bill. I speak as someone for whom 1 megabit is still a very good day in my house. It is still a challenge for many of my constituents whose children need to do their homework online, but we are getting there. We have kicked the system into a more proactive premise, but I agree...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Employment income provided through third parties (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...right hon. Members for Chichester (Mr Tyrie) and for Oxford East (Mr Smith) and the hon. Member for Wolverhampton South West (Rob Marris), with whom I had the pleasure of serving on the Finance Bill Committee last year. I was constantly impressed by his incredible knowledge about all the matters we discussed. I will be sorry to see him go from this place. I have a few matters to raise on...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Workers’ services provided to public sector through intermediaries (25 Apr 2017)

Jane Ellison: ...nice to hear Members reflect on their time in this House and the way they have served. As the right hon. Member for Oxford East (Mr Smith) noted, he has had a nice bookending, with a Finance Bill debate at the start and a final contribution on Treasury matters. Of course, he also paid tribute to his constituents. I am sure that in these circumstances one has a bit less time than one...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Income tax charge for tax year 2017-18 (25 Apr 2017)

Peter Dowd: I thank the Minister for her opening remarks about consensus, with which I fully concur. We are here today to debate what is effectively a condensed version of the Bill for which my colleagues and, indeed, everyone else had been preparing, with a view to taking part in a number of Public Bill Committee sittings over a number of weeks to scrutinise properly the longest Finance Bill that has...

Air Quality Strategy: Business of the House (24, 25, 26 and 27 April) (24 Apr 2017)

David Lidington: ..., though opposed, after the moment of interruption and shall not be interrupted under any Standing Order relating to the sittings of the House; (c) no Motion to alter the order in which proceedings on a Bill are taken, to recommit a Bill or to vary or supplement the provisions of this Order shall be made except by a Minister of the Crown.

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (19 Apr 2017)

The Presiding Officer: The result of the division is: For 62, Against 55, Abstentions 0. Motion, as amended, agreed to, That the Parliament recognises the strength of the Scottish economy, with unemployment now lower than in the UK as a whole, productivity growing four times faster in Scotland than the UK, and the number of people in employment up by 45,000 since 2008, with the number of...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is a pleasure to close today’s debate on the Finance (No. 2) Bill, even if other events have possibly overshadowed today’s important parliamentary business. In fact, I understand that there are reports circulating this evening that the Crown Prosecution Service is about to charge 30 senior Conservatives with election expenses fraud, so I am afraid it is possible that we may be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Apr 2017)

Andrew Tyrie: Assuming the House votes for an election, will the Chancellor confirm that he will seek to truncate the Finance Bill, remove its controversial measures, such as making tax digital, and thereby enable everybody to focus on the economic issue that will matter most to the whole country over the next few months: which party can best be trusted to run the economy?

Digital Economy Bill - Third Reading (5 Apr 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...Clancarty, from the Cross Benches. Is it a coincidence, I asked myself, that since the Minister took over the brief we have had not only the BBC royal charter to deal with, but three and a half bills? The half was the Law Commission’s Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill, which was a bit of a mixed bag between the DCMS and BEIS. It was really introduced under the last...

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill - Commons Reason (5 Apr 2017)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...on this matter, I am afraid Ministers in the Commons have not really heard, although I acknowledge that in his opening remarks today the Minister certainly turned to the crux of the issue. Essentially, with a Bill that gives the Government huge power over drug prices—indeed, it gives them absolute power—the real concern is that NHS patients will not get access to new medicines...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (4 Apr 2017)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, I have Amendment 12D in this group. I apologise to the House for not having spoken at previous stages of the Bill, but this is a new clause that was introduced in the other place. In fact, I blame the Minister for dragging me into this—his officials, having noted my reference to compulsory sex and relationship education in relation to a debate on online pornography in the...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Electronic Commerce (31 Mar 2017)

Matthew Hancock: We regularly engage with local authorities to discuss their role in growing the digital economy. This includes our investment of £200 million to fund locally-led projects across the UK to leverage local and commercial investment in full fibre. This builds on the relationship BDUK developed with the Superfast, and Connected Cities projects. We are continuing this close partnership with...

Backbench Business: Local and Regional News — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (30 Mar 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...context. More decisions are being taken at a local level, and it is really important to ensure that they get appropriate scrutiny. I thank the hon. Lady for raising a point during the passage of the Digital Economy Bill about the importance of ensuring that whistleblowers and journalists are protected from the tightening-up of the enforcement of data protection rules. The Digital Economy...
