Health and Social Care Committee and Education Committee (10 May 2018)

Luciana Berger: ...issue. On the hon. Lady’s point about comorbidities, there is a gaping hole in the Government’s Green Paper on the children who are the most vulnerable and need the most support. There are references to children from the most vulnerable backgrounds, but nothing in practice about how that might be addressed. I hope that, in the Government’s response, they will reflect on our...

Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2018 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ..., when we were meeting different high commissioners, together with the Secretary-General, on the very issue of the Commonwealth summit. Let me also give an assurance to all noble Lords. Several references were made to different leads and departments. The noble Lord, Lord Luce, also asked about a cross-government approach. Rightly, as noble Lords have acknowledged, this is not about one...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...exit. Indeed, the response that the Government put out in October 2017 highlighted some of these deficiencies. For example, the Equality Act refers in several places to EU or to Community law. These references are likely to need to be replaced with the term, “retained EU law”. As such, we believe that it is essential that the Clause 7 power is able to address these deficiencies so that...

Free School Meals/Pupil Premium: Eligibility (6 Feb 2018)

Sharon Hodgson: ...him one. I advise him strongly to go away and read it, as it is excellent from cover to cover, especially chapter 11, which is about the benefits of free school meals. In said chapter, there are references to the evaluations of the free school meal pilots established by the last Labour Government under Ed Balls, which showed that there was a 23% increase in vegetable consumption, a 16%...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...will update the UK’s data protection regime, reflecting the requirements of the general data protection regulation, or GDPR, which will be directly applicable in the UK from May of this year. Any references to the current Data Protection Act in the money laundering regulations will be updated in line with the new Data Protection Act at the same time as the Act takes effect. When the UK...

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

Caroline Lucas: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, if the Government had had the political will to do this, they could have ended live animal exports by now? There are already references in the EU treaties to public morals, so they could have done it if they had had the political will to do so. Also, if the Government really want to persuade us that they care as much about animal welfare as they claim to...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Willetts: ...parties played a role—we now have challenges at both the top and the bottom ends. At the top end we need to do more to extract value from our high-quality research base. Again, we have had several references to the quality of this research and the golden triangle of Oxford, Cambridge and London. The golden triangle is not some happy accident or some bit of historical chance we happen to...

Environmental and Food System Education (19 Dec 2017)

Kerry McCarthy: ...A-level that started teaching this year, but the shift to stripped-back, science-only learning will deter many pupils from taking it up. Pupils have told me that is the case. The national curriculum references the environment and climate change only in science and geography, and even then mostly in relation to the technical causes and processes, rather than the impact of climate change on...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Gender: Equality (5 Dec 2017)

Robin Walker: ...and equivalent legislation in Northern Ireland will continue to apply in domestic law after exit just as they do now, subject to the correction of any deficient provisions (for example, changing references to “EU law” to “retained EU law”). The EU (Withdrawal) Bill will also convert EU law into UK law as it applies in the UK at the moment of exit. The Government is committed to...

Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (8 Nov 2017)

Pauline McNeill: ...in that group are faring worse under welfare reform and in the context of child poverty. There is provision in that regard in the bill, but for completeness I wanted to ensure that where there are references to employability there would also be references to lone parents. However, I will not move amendment 1, because I think that the issue is adequately covered by amendment 7 and the other...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (30 Oct 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...data protection legislation is Article 8 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. It is indeed the basis of much of what is in the GDPR and applies to the whole of the EU, but when we try to find references in the Bill to the right to privacy and to the protection of personal data which Article 8 guarantees, they are not mentioned explicitly. We believe that the Government approach is...

Science and Innovation Strategy - Question for Short Debate (23 Oct 2017)

Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield: ...achievement without which our trade will wither, our Colonial Empire will remain undeveloped and our lives and freedom will be at the mercy of a potential aggressor”. If we strip out the references to the colonial empire and Joseph Stalin, that, I venture to suggest, could be the opening paragraph of the White Paper which we all await so keenly. We can pick out three crucial themes from...

Farmer Review - Question for Short Debate (11 Oct 2017)

Baroness Warwick of Undercliffe: My Lords, the report from the noble Lord, Lord Farmer, is thoughtful, realistic, unsentimental and hard-hitting. It references many other reports going back to the early 1990s which all highlight the link between good family relationships and prison safety and reform. Yet many of their recommendations seem largely to have been ignored. The noble Lord, Lord Farmer, found that the prescriptions...

Scottish Parliament: Education Governance (28 Jun 2017)

Colin Beattie: ...was highlighted. Headteachers spoke of burn-out in running a school, and of how colleagues who saw their headteacher under such pressure were deterred from seeking promotion. There were references to excessive paperwork, in particular as part of SQA inspections, and suggestions that there was a lack of trust in and respect for teachers on the part of the SQA and Education Scotland. The...

Scottish Parliament: Included in the Main Campaign (28 Mar 2017)

Graeme Dey: ...closing, could the minister outline whether and to what extent the guidance that is offered to headteachers on deploying the additional funding given to them directly to tackle attainment challenges references ASN pupils? Of all the experiences that I have had as an MSP these past six years, there is one more than any other that has stuck with me. A couple of years back I met a young...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Shipley: ...to discuss the implications to the economy of leaving the EU single market and the customs union. The Chancellor is supposed to assess our economic prospects in the Budget, but with only two short references in his speech to EU matters, he signally failed to do so. The Minister has talked about getting the deficit down. The Government have been trying for seven years to get the annual...

Scottish Parliament: International Women’s Day (7 Mar 2017)

Elizabeth Smith: ...days, but that does not mean that we have solved the problem—far from it. Our biggest challenge is to deal with the hidden discrimination that goes unnoticed. The Scottish Government’s motion references research that shows that increasing female leadership and gender equality in the workforce can benefit the workplace, society and the economy. On that note, I am sure that members...

The Government’S Productivity Plan (28 Feb 2017)

Chi Onwurah: ...career. We need to be able to upskill and respond to changing technological requirements. However, the productivity plan and the Green Paper—220 pages in total—contain only a smattering of references to adult learning and not one specific policy commitment. The second significant factor in productivity is technology. There is both opportunity and threat in the technological...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Impact of Leaving the European Union (28 Feb 2017)

John Mason: If I am not mistaken, all the references to independence this afternoon came from either the Conservatives or Labour. We have been doing the day job and concentrating on the committee’s report. Other parties have been doing other things. However, I agree with Jackie Baillie’s point that EU-brokered agreements have helped our whisky exports so we could be in a weaker position without the...

Digital Economy Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I start by drawing attention to the National Infrastructure Commission report that came out recently, which I am sure the Minister is well aware of, in particular to its references to the future of communications and mobile networks. This was central to the request by the Government for a review, so that the commission could come back with some recommendations which the Government...
