Alcohol Labelling (Pregnancy): Clause 24 — Power to issue guidance (7 Jan 2015)

Diana R. Johnson: ...followed. I therefore question whether this is the most effective way of ensuring that the Prevent agenda is implemented. I have similar concerns about the higher education sector. The document’s references to that sector envisage that the Higher Education Funding Council for England will be conducting monitoring and evaluation of the processes that the sector will have to undertake. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Infrastructure Bill [Lords] (8 Dec 2014)

Eric Ollerenshaw: ...of subsidence and the fall in housing values, and tell me about support. If there are Members who believe in the issue and wish to win the political and community argument, I suggest that fewer references are made to the depredations of coal. Unlike the hon. Members for Wrexham (Ian Lucas) and for Angus, I have no ideological argument against shale, but what many of us in Lancashire have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Marshall Report: Independent Child Sexual Exploitation Inquiry (18 Nov 2014)

Jim Wells: ...house scene; exploitation by older boyfriends; prostitution; trafficking, and forced marriage. The inquiry has not been able to establish actual numbers of young people being exploited, though it references official figures for prostitution, trafficking and forced marriage, all of which are in single figures. The inquiry states that there is an increasing risk of peer-to-peer abuse,...

Modern Slavery Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (17 Nov 2014)

Lord Bates: ...address it and make recommendations. My noble friend Lord McColl and many other noble Lords referred to child trafficking advocates and the importance of including them in the Bill. A number of references were made to how Northern Ireland had spelt out the responsibilities and that that was a better way forward. Of course we will look at what Northern Ireland has done, but we have taken a...

Scottish Parliament: Lobbying (6 Nov 2014)

Joe FitzPatrick: ...the value and character of statutory measures—for example, who should be covered by a register of lobbyists and what additional information it should contain. I was also interested by the frequent references to non-statutory measures and how they might contribute to an overall package to improve the transparency of our Parliament. The publication of MSPs’ meetings with outside interest...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ...though no application under sub-paragraph (1) above has been made to the court. (4) Paragraph 5 applies to a variation of an FGM protection order as it applies to the making of such an order (and references in that paragraph to the making of an FGM protection order are to be read accordingly). Arrest under warrant 7 (1) An interested party may apply to the relevant judge for the issue of a...

Backbench Business: Oral Hormone Pregnancy Tests (23 Oct 2014)

George Freeman: ...on more than 700 children who might have been affected, and that it had received additional responses and inquiries from other parents every time the topic received publicity. Despite the references to thousands of children, it is unclear how many we are dealing with. I want to highlight an important quote from Dr Sarah- Jane Richards, who is a senior solicitor in medical negligence at...

Scottish Parliament: Skills Partnerships (24 Sep 2014)

Claudia Beamish: ...out on its website, “Host farmers will have the benefit of working with a young trainee, while the wider local dairy sector will benefit from an increase in ‘work ready’ individuals with references.” We all know that people in the hospitality sector are often poorly paid and that there are poor career development paths. Skills partnerships can play a major role in ensuring that...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 13 - Enforcement powers in relation to ships (9 Sep 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...and territories—about which, more soon. At the minute, the wording of clause 13 seems ripe for confusion and uncertainty, so amendment 57 is aimed at clarifying some of that. The number of references in clause 13 to waters both in and outwith England and Wales gives rise to confusion about the applicability of the legislation. I note fully that the Minister has again said that the...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 3 - Meaning of exploitation (4 Sep 2014)

Karen Bradley: ...covered. Again, equivalent conduct outside England and Wales is within the definition. The clause sets out that exploitation includes trafficking for organ removal or for the sale of human tissue by references to offences in the Human Tissue Act 2004. In addition, the clause sets out that exploitation includes where a person is forced, threatened or deceived into providing a service of any...

Women: Equality and Advancement — Question for Short Debate (22 Jul 2014)

Baroness Thornton: ...there were some serious and frank discussions that took place at the time. Indeed, I have heard some accounts from the NGOs that were present. The document that resulted, for example, makes specific references to uphold women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights; there was an agreement to eliminate harmful practices, including child marriage and female genital mutilation, which,...

EU: Justice and Home Affairs (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2014)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...this and hope that it will lead to member states and the Commission being more proactive in addressing cases of fraud and abuse of human rights. The new strategic guidelines also contain welcome references to the need to strengthen the EU’s external border, in particular through strengthening co-operation with countries of origin and countries used for transit. We were also successful in...

Serious Crime Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (15 Jul 2014)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...it explicit that the child cruelty in Section 1 of the 1933 Act deals with both physical and psychological suffering or injury and update some of the rather archaic language by replacing outdated references to “mental derangement” and the concept of “misdemeanour”. My noble friend Lady Hamwee in tabling her amendments, and the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, in speaking to them,...

Modern Slavery Bill (8 Jul 2014)

Karen Bradley: ...and been a real leader. His work on the pre-legislative scrutiny Committee has been outstanding, but as always he pushed the envelope slightly with the Deputy Speaker in some of his comments and references. I know he will be forgiven for that. It was astute of him to spot that it was the women who were driving the measure through. The three that he mentioned show that it takes a woman to...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jun 2014)

Lord Faulks: ...those whose points are excluded will not feel that they have gone unrecognised or that they will not be appropriately responded to in due course. It has been an intensely serious debate, although references to Philip Larkin, John McEnroe and Walter Matthau provided slight light relief during its course. Unfortunately, few noble Lords were as brief or as accommodating as my noble friend...

EU Council June 2014 — Statement (30 Jun 2014)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...with what the Statement says about the importance of commemorating the centenary of the First World War and the sacrifice of a generation who gave their lives for our freedom. I also welcome the references to the association agreements signed with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. I must congratulate the Government on their chutzpah. It is an extraordinary feat to claim that a 26-2 defeat and...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (10 Jun 2014)

Baroness Donaghy: ...appraisal of what kind of jobs will be needed in the future. The Edge Foundation has said that nine of the 10 occupations most in demand in the future will require vocational skills. Finally, the references to employment in the Queen’s Speech were predictable, with some being good and some bad depending on the detail. However, as the noble Lord, Lord Higgins, said, there is also a...

Care Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (7 May 2014)

Earl Howe: ...technical changes to clarify the provisions further and correct previous oversights. Amendments 1, 12 to 31 and 34 to 36 are minor and technical, and do three things. First, they ensure that cross-references to the Children and Families Act 2014 and consequential changes to it are accurately reflected in the Care Bill. Secondly, they include further definitions in the glossary at Clause...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Voice in the European Union (22 Apr 2014)

Fiona Hyslop: ...fear of Scotland’s continuing membership as a reason to vote no, but that does not seem to be working, as the narrowing of the gap in recent opinion polls has shown. The Labour Party amendment references outgoing Commission President Barroso’s television interview comments. Those comments were clearly a political opinion that was stated for political reasons, and without reference to...
