Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 May 2024)

Jack Brereton: ...Member for Stoke-on-Trent North said, local operators are starting to have a much more positive outlook, with First also looking to restore services to communities such as Sandford Hill and Saxon Fields, which lost its services some years ago. I very much also support my hon. Friend’s campaign to get the fleet renewed, because we need investment in new, zero-emission and sustainable...

People with Disabilities: Access to Services - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2024)

Baroness Browning: ...Newton, Tony Newton, who was also a colleague in mine in another place. He got up out of his hospital bed to come here and speak on this subject. I also pay tribute to the much-missed late Lord Field, Frank Field, whom again I served with in both Houses. He was a champion in this area. On 25 September 2019, he tabled this Written Question in the House of Commons: “To ask the Secretary...

Under-10-Metre Fishing Fleet: South-West (15 May 2024)

Cherilyn Mackrory: ...the arguments when we were trying to work out a compensation scheme. These vessels do not make a dent in stocks, so suggesting that they do compared with the enormous factory ships out at sea is frankly ludicrous. I would go even further: perhaps with the exception of bass, I would take away quota limits on any species for the under-10s, particularly the under-10 handliners, because they...

Health and Disability Reform - Statement ( 1 May 2024)

Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone: ...understanding of disability and ill health changes all the time. This benefit has been around since 2013, and it is time for a strategic review. Earlier this week, we were talking about the late Frank Field. When I worked on benefit agencies with him, it was quite different. With these vast sums of money, we should focus and make sure that the money is spent wisely and well. There is only...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 94 ( 1 May 2024)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...come to shortly. As the noble Lord said, it is quite unusual for this call for regulation to come not only from the consumers who would benefit but from the professionals already working in the field. It is virtually unanimous; in fact, among the organised groups, it is unanimous that this is the regulation under which they would like to work. The agencies and their representative bodies...

Group 3: Disqualification from being a Member of the Senedd or a candidate: persons convicted of the offence of deception within the previous four years (Amendment 43) (30 Apr 2024)

Darren Millar: ...and running with them, and those things proliferating themselves in things like social media. That, then, undermines the trust in democracy and plays into the hands of our international enemies, frankly, in terms of those authoritarian regimes that want to do a disservice to democracy. It's incumbent upon us all in this Chamber to ensure that honesty and integrity are at the heart of...

Child Poverty - Question for Short Debate (29 Apr 2024)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...Lady Bottomley for giving us a historical perspective on this subject, with a few namechecks that went back, I think it is fair to say, several decades. I echo the words of several Peers about Lord Field of Birkenhead. The first line of the statement given out by his family, which was issued by his parliamentary office, was interesting: “Frank was an extraordinary individual who spent...

Assisted Dying — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (29 Apr 2024)

David Davis: ...through and get it right. Once we get it right, unless we are going to accept that we are stepping on a slippery slope, we have to make that the final decision as a Parliament. I was a friend of Frank Field for 50 years. We were close friends and allies on all sorts of things over that time. Like me, he opposed this proposal for a long time and changed his mind at the end. I am honoured to...

Health and Disability Reform (29 Apr 2024)

Alison McGovern: I thank the Secretary of State for his comments about Frank Field. Both I and my hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Dame Angela Eagle), who is sitting alongside me on the Front Bench, thought the world of Frank. I thank the Secretary of State for his tribute to a person who was completely unique in every way. With regards to advance sight of the Secretary of State’s statement, I say:...

Business of the House (25 Apr 2024)

Lucy Powell: The awful events in Wales yesterday will have been traumatic for students, staff and parents, and our thoughts are with all those affected. I also pay tribute to Frank Field. The words said about Frank in recent days really reflect who he was: principled, determined, relentless, kind, generous and funny. His tireless campaigning against poverty, and for opportunity and education, changed the...

Space Industry (24 Apr 2024)

Mark Garnier: ...the technology to other nations or selling the power directly from the satellites. It will tackle other issues in the UK, such as grid equalisation. I repeat that the UK is leading in this field. It is leading because the Government have supported not just the ESA’s Solaris programme but UK research for UK businesses. In the last few weeks, a huge success has been achieved in the field...

Infected Blood Inquiry - Commons Urgent Question (24 Apr 2024)

Baroness Chapman of Darlington: ...work is being done by the Treasury on this issue, and will the Minister commit to making this publicly available? We learned this morning of the sad passing of our loved and respected friend Lord Field of Birkenhead, a steadfast champion for justice on this and many other issues. I can do no better this afternoon than to consider Frank’s words. In his statement to the inquiry, he said:...

Renters (Reform) Bill: New Clause 15 - Notices to quit by tenants under assured tenancies: timing (24 Apr 2024)

Munira Wilson: ...restricted period, it will ensure that landlords cannot remarket a property as a short-term or holiday let within three months of purchase. That is a much-needed step towards levelling the playing field in the housing market for local people in tourist hotspots and helping local economies and communities to thrive. Amendment 37, which was tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for North...

Scottish Parliament: Children (Care and Justice) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (24 Apr 2024)

...the case, she must press pause, for the sake of child crime victims, other victims and the professionals who are being expected to make the law work in the real world. I move amendment 41. To be frank, Russell Findlay’s amendments eviscerate the heart of the bill. If they are passed, they would keep more children in the criminal justice system. The amendments undermine the Promise, to...

Family Reunion Visas: Gaza - Question (24 Apr 2024)

Lord Coaker: I join the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, in the tribute that she made to our noble friend Frank Field—I am sure that we all join with that. Judicial review has found that the family of a Palestinian refugee can apply for a visa without the use of biometrics. The Home Office has said that it is complying with that, so can the Minister outline to the Chamber how it is...

2. Questions to the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Reducing Child Poverty (24 Apr 2024)

Lesley Griffiths: Thank you. I saw just before I came into the Chamber that Frank Field had unfortunately passed away, and obviously he did a huge amount of work in this area. I’ve already outlined the work that has been undertaken and will continue to be undertaken and how the child poverty strategy absolutely sets out ambitions that we have as a Government for the longer term, and how we’ll work across...
