Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (6 Sep 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: seek advice. I would have thought a clear case of that would be where it is available but they might feel intimidated—actually intimidated or intimidated by the environment.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Wes Streeting: ...begrudge them one penny. I do, however, begrudge the unfairness of Northern Ireland being given preferential treatment over England, Wales and Scotland for no other reason than that the Prime Minister took a gamble. She has paid a heavy personal political price for that, but I am less bothered about that. I am really bothered about the fact that the taxpayers we represent in England, Wales...

Brexit: UK-Irish Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Sep 2017)

Lord Bew: ...a hard Brexit. It will be particularly hard also on Irish SMEs, which are locked into the UK. It is as simple as that. They are talking about 40,000 job losses. This is the real Ireland.

They are going to gamble that the European Union is never...

Willie Rennie: ...plan is based on using investment to deliver reform, investing in the talents of our people to achieve great things and to lift the economy, decentralising power and bringing back democracy. I am afraid the Conservatives’ reckless gamble on Europe means that the Houses of Parliament will be dominated by that subject for some time. We remain of the view that Brexit will be damaging....

Strategic Road Network: South West (19 Jul 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...on to the M5 and home. Occasionally, if I am in a hurry, I will risk the A303 and the A358 into Taunton—my hon.

They face swarms of druid-fanciers at Stonehenge, armies of articulated lorries struggling up hills and enough caravans to drive Jeremy Clarkson...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Julian Lewis: ...fruitlessly after that date? Why risk the colossal price of failure when the balance of forces at the strategic level was shifting so dramatically? The German leadership fully understood the significance of American belligerency. They therefore gambled everything in the spring of 1918 to exploit the collapse of Russia before the United States could make a real difference. It was therefore...

Brexit: Risks to NHS Sustainability - Question for Short Debate (12 Jul 2017)

Lord Clark of Windermere: ...expose ourselves. To put this issue in context, half a million scans are performed every year in Britain using imported isotopes and, on top of that, over 10,000 cancer patients have treatment involving their use. I just think that it is too big a gamble to take a decision on what I can only think are ideological grounds. That is a big, big error and I hope that the Government will rethink...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Hannah Bardell: ...stand still and reach the position we now have with full access to the single market.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Lord Monks: not have to be here. If we flop outside the single market and the customs union, and if there are new tariff and non-tariff barriers, will they stay? We do not really know, do we?
