Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Clause 47 - Zoos (18 Nov 2021)

Daniel Zeichner: ...to disbelieve them, we want the legislation strengthened. There is no statutory requirement on future Ministers to consult on further updates. The role of the Zoos Expert Committee is a dilemma, frankly, because we have had cause for concern in other areas when reports from expert committees have not necessarily always been published. That is why people are pressing for a stronger system....

Integrated Rail Plan: North and Midlands (18 Nov 2021)

Jim McMahon: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. We will be going out shortly to collect the plan and scrutinise it. I am frankly staggered by how this statement started, with the Secretary of State saying he was “proud” to present it to the House—proud of what? Is he proud of the betrayal of trust, the betrayal of promises and the betrayal of the investment that the...

Strengthening Standards in Public Life (17 Nov 2021)

Bob Seely: ...the world, it is too easy to blur the line into paid advocacy and the ethical problems that come from it. The only political consultant I want to be is for the folks on the Isle of the Wight, and frankly the only lobbying I want to be doing is on their behalf. That is what I will do in this House, rather than taking on paid consultancies, which are ethically just so concerning. I...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (16 Nov 2021)

Richard Thomson: ...is being caused by shortages of labour. That applies in the haulage sector and, in particular, in the food and drink, hospitality and agriculture sectors. We have seen crops rotting in the field because there are not enough people to harvest them. We are seeing a crisis in the pig industry. There simply are not enough skilled abattoir workers and butchers to deal with the throughput from...

Giving Every Baby the Best Start in Life (9 Nov 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...what level of education a baby will attain, what their health will be like, and even how long they will live. It should be of paramount importance to any Government to work to level this playing field. In this day and age, it simply should not be the case that where a person is born, and who they are born to is the most determining factor in their life. This Tory Government talk a lot...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 2 - Exclusion of review of Upper Tribunal’s permission-to-appeal decisions (9 Nov 2021)

Andrew Slaughter: ...take up with his own side. I will talk about the 5%, but I do not want to say any more about the backlog. It is an incredibly important issue, and I look forward to the debate on that resuming, but frankly it is irrelevant to our proceedings, and it is a stretch to introduce it. On the matter of cherries, this has been characterised as simply an immigration matter. Most Cart judicial...

Leaseholders: Safety Remediation Costs - Motion to Take Note (4 Nov 2021)

Baroness Blake of Leeds: ..., green and affordable housing, but, as others have stated, given the gravity of the situation facing leaseholders currently, I will focus my comments on the urgent need for action to address the frankly desperate situation facing so many thousands of innocent people. Four years on from the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, the Government’s response to building safety is still characterised by...

Income Tax (Charge) (28 Oct 2021)

Barry Gardiner: ...fuel companies will be able to use them to receive from the taxpayer not only the entire cost of their polluting capital investments but a bonus 30% for doing so, in projects like the Cambo oil field,. This incentivises the very behaviour COP26 is trying to curtail. The Chancellor announced a new lower rate of air passenger duty on domestic flights and support for regional domestic...

Income Tax (Charge) (27 Oct 2021)

Peter Bottomley: ...has found an imaginative way of giving help to people before the end of the year. I think that there will be a great deal of approval for that. I would like to say something in tribute to Frank Field, who spent a long time working on child benefits. As and when there is extra money for children, I would give it through child benefit. I would not give it through the extra provision of...

Social Security (Up-rating of Benefits) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 (26 Oct 2021)

Baroness Boycott: ...Lady Sherlock. I thank her for that incredibly good and detailed outline of what the problem is. I want to speak briefly as the chair of the charity Feeding Britain, where I succeeded the wonderful Frank Field—the noble Lord, Lord Field of Birkenhead. We began three years ago to support the rollout of affordable food projects. We originally held the assumption that most of the people who...

Investment Industry Exposure to Modern Slavery (26 Oct 2021)

Karen Bradley: ...on Report, and tabled amendments constantly, including on supply chains. Section 54 was not in the Bill when we started. The Bill had gone through prelegislative scrutiny by a Committee chaired by Frank Field, now of the other place. I am going to call him by name. I know that we would normally refer to him as the noble Lord Field, but everyone will have seen the news that he made public...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Oct 2021)

...a clear and effective way, through sound decision-making and appropriate thought as per the commitments within the TCA to respect the common principles that have been set out. For the level playing field to be preserved, if you like, it is vital that there is a remedy, an enforcement system. That system can only come out when there is public knowledge of what is going on. Such public...

Transport Funding: Wales and HS2 — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (26 Oct 2021)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...an especially bitter taste. HS2 has become a catchphrase for constitutional injustice, the high-handed mistreatment of Wales by Westminster, and the lack of fair play, let alone a level playing field. It reveals the reality of this Union of inequality. The consequences of HS2 for Wales are best seen when viewed, as two Members have already said, through the lens of the levelling-up agenda....

COP26: Limiting Global Temperature Rises (21 Oct 2021)

Deidre Brock: ...loss of land, poor soil health due to flooding, risks to food supply and lack of drinking water. COP26 is not only our best chance; it might be one of our last. The UK’s devolved nations can frankly no longer wait for the UK Government to show real leadership; they must be given a broader role. It is too important an event to be left entirely to a Prime Minister with so little...

Artificial Intelligence (20 Oct 2021)

Nicholas Fletcher: ...Trade; and the Treasury. It is quite a list. So, what is the problem? Well, it is what I want to highlight today, so that, as parliamentarians and as a Government, we can start to have a frank and honest discussion on this issue. First and perhaps most worryingly, the rise of AI technology is likely to decimate people’s jobs. I have heard it said, “Well, people have threatened that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Arts and the Creative Industries (11 Oct 2021)

Steve Aiken: ...beards — I have never quite managed to do that — to artificial-intelligence researchers building virtual worlds and entire digital environments that have spin-offs not just in the entertainment fields, but in such areas as medicine, aerospace and civil engineering, among others. The translatability of skills from the creative industries sector is, in many ways, another unique set of...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 38 - Reconfiguration of services: intervention powers (21 Sep 2021)

Karin Smyth: ...were largely clinically led. We may dispute whether that was in actuality, whether those people were acting as clinicians, what sort of clinicians they were, whether they were clinicians in the field of the service reconfiguration we were talking about and so on, but that is an important point in terms of trust with the general public. The new bodies are not clinically led. In my...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 34 - Arrangements for exercise of public health functions (21 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: As the Minister says, the clauses relate to public health. We might previously have anticipated that the hon. Member for Bury St Edmunds (Jo Churchill) would have fielded them, but obviously she has moved Departments. I want to take this opportunity to put on record my thanks to her for her service as Public Health Minister. We worked well together, particularly in the proceedings on the...

Net-zero Carbon Emissions: Behaviour Change - Motion to Take Note (16 Sep 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: ...even overtake us soon in this area of policy. Yes, there may still be coal-fired power stations in China, but its embrace of new and greener means of power generation and advanced technology in the field of electronics and electric transport, as well as its use of alternative energy such as solar, wind, wave and hydro power, is progressing at a very fast rate. The resources being committed...

Backbench Business: UK Maritime Sector — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (16 Sep 2021)

Peter Aldous: ...my own area, Lowestoft, the UK’s most easterly port. It serves the southern North sea, which includes one of the largest clusters of offshore windfarms in the world, rich fishing grounds and gas fields in which to store carbon. Lowestoft has an illustrious maritime past, being the former fishing capital of the southern North sea—a title that it wishes to regain—and the home of two...
