Subsidy Control Bill (22 Sep 2021)

Robin Millar: ...be said about the gaps between the way the world is viewed by Opposition Members and the way it is viewed by Government Members, but one such gap has come through during this debate in the constant references to things that are missing. I suggest that that gap indicates different ways of looking at things: while Government Members are happy to set down principles within which business can...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Special Educational Needs: Coronavirus (23 Jul 2021)

Vicky Ford: .... DHSC have identified provision for children and young people with SEND in their NHS recovery planning. The COVID-19 mental health and wellbeing recovery action plan, published in March 2021, references various areas of support. £31 million will be used to address particular challenges faced by individuals, including £3 million for community respite services. The Department for...

Strategy for Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls (21 Jul 2021)

Kirsten Oswald: ...violence against women and girls strategy mean that this issue will finally be addressed and, if so, when? Warm words do not protect women, but ratifying the Istanbul convention would. I welcome references to measures to increase prosecutions, but that is just spin unless there are also resources to handle that increase. Delays will simply mean more trauma for victims and less likelihood...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (6 Jul 2021)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...and training is as important to a productive economy as university education. I have often mentioned the experience of Germany, Austria and Switzerland in this respect, so I was glad to see the references to the German one-stop shop chambers of commerce system in January’s White Paper. I have a great deal of sympathy with the thrust of the thinking of the Secretary of State, Gavin...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 152 (5 Jul 2021)

Lord Whitty: ...and targeting, and hence reduce the total volume of inorganic chemical pesticides and exposure. But there is no focus in that on vulnerable populations in our rural communities. Although there are references in codes of practice to notification of residents and occupiers of adjacent premises, those neither have the backing of law nor require full disclosure of the type of pesticide being...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Local Government (Meetings and Performance) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (5 Jul 2021)

Deirdre Hargey: ...omitted. Amendment Nos 2, 3 and 4 make minor amendments to what is now clause 3, which are required as a consequence of the removal of clause 5(2). They tidy up the clause by removing any remaining references to the 2022-23 year and to the clause applying for more than one financial year.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (19 May 2021)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: I counted three references to values in the Minister’s speech. Former Secretary of State John Kerry said that “values spoken without actions taken are merely slogans.” We are told that this Queen’s Speech implements the Conservative Party manifesto. In the middle of page 53 of that manifesto, in very large lettering, is the heading “Promote our values”, under which it says that...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 112 - Penalties for failure to make returns etc (27 Apr 2021)

Jesse Norman: ...the new clause. Finally, I will briefly respond to amendment 26, proposed by the Opposition. It relates to clause 114 and schedule 26, which deal in consequential amendments, removing redundant references to the VAT default surcharge, which of course is being replaced by clauses 112 and 113 in the Bill. The amendment would confusingly and mistakenly retain references to the repealed...

NHS Pay — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (24 Mar 2021)

Paula Barker: ...day, their unrelenting commitment to the public service still moves me, as it should all people here today in Westminster Hall. I am not one to often quote Winston Churchill, or indeed make wartime references, but never was so much owed by so many to so few. If any of this brave few were able to come up for breath for just a moment, maybe because of their shift patterns, and sit in front...

Household Overcrowding: Covid-19 (10 Mar 2021)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...that we came into the pandemic with so many people exposed through overcrowded housing. It would be unforgivable if the Government did not learn from this and rebuild better, but the only references to housing in the Budget speech were about a stamp duty holiday and 95% mortgage schemes. These short-sighted interventions do nothing to build the kind of good quality, truly affordable homes...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill - Commons Reason and Amendments: Motion B (4 Mar 2021)

Baroness Barran: ...at all responses in evaluating whether further changes are needed and, if so, what those changes should be. The amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, goes further still and references permitted development rights and street works. DCMS does not have responsibility for these two policy areas, but I reassure your Lordships that DCMS officials work in close contact with the...

Covid-19 (22 Feb 2021)

Alex Norris: ...immediate steps that, if taken, would lead to a significant improvement in our country’s attempt to beat this virus, and I hope the right hon. Lady will take them in the spirit intended. Multiple references were made to the alarming news that the Health Secretary broke the law earlier in the pandemic. The Prime Minister seemed to have no concern about this, which in itself is quite...

Trade Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 17 (6 Jan 2021)

Baroness Ritchie of Downpatrick: ...will take months for experts, lawyers and officials fully to work out its implications, and on many of these we will be reading across to the protocol. The TCA is a work in progress; there are many references in the document to future development or anticipated improvements. There are four overriding concerns for Northern Ireland. How will the evolution of the TCA be connected to that of...

Trade (Disclosure of Information) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (17 Dec 2020)

Lord Grimstone of Boscobel: ...will therefore provide that Clauses 8 to10 of the Trade Bill form the permanent basis for data-sharing. This Bill also includes an explicit reference to the DAs on the face of the Bill, alongside references to investigatory powers legislation and sentencing, which were absent from the clauses in the Trade Bill. However, these changes will be made to the Trade Bill clauses in due course,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Independent Review of Education: Terms of Reference (15 Dec 2020)

Peter Weir: ...efficiency in delivery costs, raising standards, access to the curriculum for all pupils, and the prospects of moving towards a single education system." Indeed, there are a couple of other direct references to the review in NDNA. Work to establish the review had to be suspended in March 2020 due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am keen to make further progress on establishing the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Domestic Abuse and Family Proceedings Bill: Consideration Stage (17 Nov 2020)

Paul Givan: ...to child protection provisions in health legislation to make it clear that non-physical ill treatment of a child by someone with parental responsibility for them is an offence and to provide that references to an offence around unnecessary suffering or injury to a child explicitly state that that relates to suffering or injury being physical or otherwise, again ensuring that non-physical...

Public Bill Committee: Environment Bill: Schedule 14 - Biodiversity gain as condition of planning permission (17 Nov 2020)

Daniel Zeichner: ...White Paper, but it is relevant because of its proposals. Incidentally —I do not think I made this point earlier—the Minister had to search pretty hard in the planning White Paper to find references to net gain and biodiversity; the mention of it is very tangential. Anyway, the White Paper includes proposals for the extended use of development orders for large-scale development, as...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (26 Oct 2020)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...at this pace. I mentioned that we can look to other areas for other approaches. In the Second Reading debate I referenced Canada and Australia—and I am not alone, because the Prime Minister references those countries very frequently. Both countries in the 1990s introduced an approach for mutual recognition, but both Canada and Australia had had concerns from their states and provinces,...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Caroline Lucas: ...Bill has conferred astoundingly broad powers on Ministers, but without clarity or direction over the mechanisms that they will use to judge whether they are upholding policy commitments—and vague references to overarching frameworks just will not cut it. The bottom line is that, in order to tackle the nature and climate emergencies that we face, the state must not risk supporting...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Fisheries Bill: Legislative Consent Motion (29 Sep 2020)

Declan McAleer: ...and licensing is another feature of the Bill, which will revoke and replace all current powers for licensing authorities to license for fishing in British waters. Throughout the Bill there are references to "foreign fishing vessels", which some members of the Committee objected to when used in connection with vessels from the South of Ireland. Clarification was sought from the...
