Mark Griffin: urge others to respect the rule of law and the freedoms and rights that every human being is entitled to.

Carol Monaghan: Colleges Scotland has received more than £250 million in EU funding in the past 10 years to help fund capital projects.

Greyhound Welfare (15 Dec 2016)

George Eustice: .... I therefore do not believe that we need the type of moratorium she suggests. The hon. Lady and several other hon. Members, including the hon. Member for Redcar (Anna Turley), raised doping. That is already an offence under the Gambling Act 2005, and people can be prosecuted for it. Depending on what is used, it is also potentially an offence under the Animal Welfare Act 2006. The hon....

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget 2017-18 (15 Dec 2016)

Derek Mackay: ...said that we will keep the additional rate under review. However, there is a risk that if we increase it, we could lose revenue and receipts, and that would impact on public services. That is not a gamble that this Government is willing to make.

Wales Bill - Report (1st Day) (14 Dec 2016)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...Ely said at the outset. First, it is not a good way to treat the House for the Government to insist on mixing up, in one group, amendments on this variety of topics—energy, the Crown Estate and gambling. This is not a basis for rational scrutiny of legislation and it should not have happened. I want to dwell on the gambling issue for only a moment, as much more important is the...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Morrow: ...not to facilitate illegal transactions. This, of course, is not a new argument.

David Burrowes: ...communities, and especially as a result of the clustering of betting shops. There is good evidence from the Local Government Association that in areas of clustering there is increased problem gambling. We cannot avoid that evidence.

Scottish Parliament: International Migrants to Scotland (13 Dec 2016)

Rona Mackay: ...instead to adopt an I-will-if-you-will mentality and to insist that workers from this country are given security in other EU countries. What utter hypocrisy and arrogance. The Tory Government gambled with our European identity and lost, and now it thinks that it can set the rules. The fact is that Brexit is a no-win situation. We are all losers, and that is why our First Minister and...

Savings (Government Contributions) Bill: Save as You Earn: employee request (12 Dec 2016)

Peter Dowd: ...Opposition’s wider concern is that the new savings scheme will interfere with and perhaps even have a negative impact on the automatic enrolment of people into pensions.

The Opposition new clauses and amendments...

Online Safety - Question for Short Debate (1 Dec 2016)

the Earl of Listowel: computing. My concern was that this intelligent young man, who I fear was unable to make close relationships with people, would have a close relationship with his computer and the internet, and perhaps with pornography and gambling. That would be the way that he compensated for the fact that he had not received the help he needed to recover from his earlier trauma. On the positive...

Brexit: UK-EU Relationship - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Lord Rooker: ...tribe, but when she looks across the Dispatch Box, I can see why she did not choose that path. As a nation we are in enormous uncertainty and that is affecting our economy and social cohesion, and all because her predecessor gambled the nation for peace in his party and lost. She must not do that. Those at the centre of the 27 will not want other members to see a large exiting member...
