Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Climate Change (No. 2) Bill: Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2022)

Linda Dillon: ...standards, that will be a challenge for our farmers, because who will want to trade with them? Who will want to buy their food? Very basically, as someone who goes into a shop to buy meat, I am fussy about where I buy my meat and where it comes from. I am fussy about how those animals were reared, how they were killed and how that meat was processed. It is important to people. From my time...

backbench business: [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (9 Dec 2021)

Rupa Huq: ...the House to have a covid lateral flow test twice a week if they are coming on to the estate: you can have one very handily downstairs in Portcullis House, or you can have one at home—we are not fussy. Members are also asked to give each other and members of staff space when entering and leaving the room.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Nov 2021)

Richard Thomson: ..., the Cabinet Office is yet to reveal the results and the details of its clandestine secret polling about Scottish attitudes to independence and the Union. Could a Minister—any Minister: I am not fussy—tell us when this information will be revealed, and what exactly it is that they are so scared of the Scottish people finding out?

Beijing Winter Olympics and Chinese Government Sanctions (15 Jul 2021)

Gavin Newlands: ...assessed not just on their stadia capacity or segregated car lanes for VIPs, but on their human rights record and their treatment of their own citizens. History shows that the IOC has not been fussy in the past about who leads them—installing a senior member of Franco’s Falangists as their president should still be a source of shame—but it has a chance in future games to properly...

Business of the House (11 Mar 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...great reforms or restorations are taking place, we may have to put up with a little bit of discomfort. There may be, occasionally, a little bit of banging and noise being made, and we cannot be too fussy about that if we are to keep this as a working operational building. But the key work needs to be done, and it needs to be done in a timely fashion, with value for money at its heart.

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions on Gatherings) (North of England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (25 Sep 2020)

Lord Dobbs: ...of growing frustration. It is a frustration that I understand and entirely share. My noble friend Lord Robathan’s Motion, along with today’s proceedings, are not simply about Covid but about fussy little things such as democratic accountability, that irritating grit in the oyster. I notice that my noble friend Lord Bethell is down to respond next week. As much as we all admire him, I...

Finance Bill: New Clause 19 - Taxation of coronavirus support payments (2 Jul 2020)

Mark Jenkinson: .... One of my secondary school science teachers, Mr Harris, once recognised in my school report—if the Prime Minister is listening—my ministerial potential. He suggested agriculture, but I am not fussy. Not having spent a huge amount of time outside Cumbria, I wondered how I might identify fellow Cumbrians in the big city. Folklore has it that I should greet those about whom I have a...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (18 Mar 2020)

Lord Maude of Horsham: that position. The effects of all of this are very immediate. Further, while this may be surprising in view of what I was saying earlier, it is important that the Government should not be too fussy about trying to ensure in advance that all of the money is spent perfectly. It will not be because speed trumps everything else in this regard and getting the money out of the door. How...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hamwee: ...plenty of time for the scrutiny of secondary legislation. What he did not say, but what I heard, was “until the House realises that the Government have it right and noble Lords stop being over-fussy”. I have put my name to amendments relating to the rights of both EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU where, in part, sensible dealings with other countries are needed. However,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Viscount Hanworth: ...the detailed trade negotiations with the European Union are under way. The political activities of Boris Johnson have a quality of patrician amateurism. He exudes self-confidence and a disdain for fussy detail. His attitude appeals to many who find the details of public administration to be tedious and inessential. Amateurism is nothing new in British politics. It was satirised in a...

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Jess Phillips: ...the fuck is she not happy about?” Pitigoi: “and she doesn’t really like it as you can imagine it’s hard on her bro”. Mitru: “she doesn’t have a penny in her pocket and she is being fussy maybe it is hard for her but if she fucked at least she knows what for not for nothing”. Pitigoi replied, “I know that:))” I have met that woman hundreds of times. A review is not...

NATO Summit 2018 - Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2018)

Baroness Helic: ...this debate and declare an interest as per my entry in the Register of Lords’ Interests. I grew up in the former Yugoslavia, a country positioned between the Warsaw Pact and NATO. Any time I was fussy about food, my parents reminded me of the economic blockade imposed on them by the Soviet Union in 1948 and the plane sent by President Truman that saved the country from starvation and...

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...a day; I apologise. We are doing this in solidarity with PKU families, but we also know that this in no way fully reflects or replicates the reality of their lives. Most of us will do this by being fussy and awkward—I anticipate living off aubergine for a day—but we are only doing it for one day. We will not face this fraught, potentially toxic relationship with food, and the stigma...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (20 Mar 2018)

Ranil Jayawardena: Although my younger daughter, being at the discerning age of one, is a particularly fussy eater, childhood obesity is becoming one of the most quickly rising and important issues of our time. Does my right hon. Friend recognise that it is something that we really need to tackle, and quickly?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Chris Leslie: ...import and export of animal products. There is a reason that the Americans dip their chickens in chlorine, Mr Speaker. I do not know whether you have had chlorinated chicken recently. I am not that fussy myself, but perhaps we will be invited to a tasting session at the new American embassy at some point. The reason they dip their chickens in chlorine is that the welfare standards that...

Grenfell Tower (3 Jul 2017)

Andrew Slaughter: ...State today quite sickening. The reason why people are refusing offers of accommodation is that they are not suitable, sometimes by reason of people’s age or disability, and not because these are fussy people. The units of social housing being offered are existing social housing, so what happens to the people who would have gone into them? We are going to have a net reduction in the...

Scottish Parliament: Green Deal (Consumer Protection) (6 Jun 2017)

Ivan McKee: .... Although the Scottish Government was charged with the roll-out of the green deal in Scotland, it had no opportunity to influence who was approved, and it seems that the UK Government was not too fussy about who got on the list. The problem is encapsulated by the unfortunate experience of an elderly constituent of mine. Mary, who is from Barmulloch in Glasgow, spent her life savings on...

Baby Loss: Hormone Pregnancy Tests (13 Oct 2016)

Maria Eagle: ...practised as a lawyer in product liability litigation. From Thalidomide to Primodos and vaccine damage, there are some common themes: a lack of warnings about possible side-effects; being called a fussy mother when disabilities of a young baby are first noticed and raised with medical practitioners; denial of causality when there are reports of adverse effects; the sudden and inexplicable...

Immigration Act 2014 (Commencement No. 6) Order 2016 — Motion to Annul (24 Feb 2016)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: ...comes along, because you have to compensate for the money that you have lost in that period. In the end, we had to get a letter from her embassy to prove that she really was legitimate. I was quite fussy about this because we had at least six people presenting themselves to take that flat who were definitely not what they said they were and wanted it for illegal purposes. Other flats in...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [HL] — Third Reading (14 Sep 2015)

Baroness Pitkeathley: ...and chief executives but trustees much more mindful of their responsibilities in regulating their fundraising activities. Too many trustees have been content to take the money without being too fussy about how that fundraising has been achieved. Wearing another hat, I chair the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. We have a concept of right-touch—not...
