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...

Development: Post-2015 Agenda — Question for Short Debate (2 Apr 2014)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...’ is not compatible with a rights-based perspective. Moreover, inequality has emerged as a powerful brake on progress towards the MDGs”. Although the high-level panel report makes a number of references to inequality and to a commitment to leave no one behind, no explicit inequality goal or target is suggested. Instead, the report recommends that data collected to mark progress on...

Fair Tax Mark (18 Mar 2014)

Caroline Lucas: ...the timing of my request for the debate. We will all assemble tomorrow to hear the Chancellor of the Exchequer present his latest Budget. Among the measures he presents, there will no doubt be many references to taxation. Equally, I have little doubt that he will refer to the tax contribution that companies make to this country. After all, the UK’s limited companies, of which there are...

Pensions Bill (Programme) (No. 3): Clause 24 — Abolition of contracting-out for salary related schemes etc (17 Mar 2014)

Steve Webb: ...20 and 22 amend the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992 to make it clear that funds for paying the single-tier pension are provided by national insurance contributions, and that references to “benefit” include the single-tier pension. Lords amendment 23 repeals redundant provisions in the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013, while Lords amendment 24 removes a redundant...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: School Pupils:  Evaluation and Assessment (11 Mar 2014)

Mervyn Storey: ...issue in our schools: funding.  We still await the Minister making a statement to the House on the common funding formula. I move to the statement that is before us.  The Minister made a number of references to the OECD report on evaluation and assessment frameworks.  I am glad that he acknowledges the gap between the policy intention of things like computer-based assessment and the...

Children and Families Bill — Report (5th Day) (Continued) (29 Jan 2014)

Lord Nash: ...must take appropriate action. This can involve support from external agencies, if needed, whether or not a child has an education, health and care plan. In addition, we will make appropriate cross-references between the bullying guidance and the SEN code of practice to ensure that schools are clear about this point. My noble friend spoke about children having depression caused by bullying....

Public Bill Committee: Care Bill [Lords]: Schedule 5 - Health Education England (28 Jan 2014)

Paul Burstow: ...of Health in its report “Sharing the challenge, sharing the benefits: Equality and Diversity in the Medical Workforce” recognise that widening the net is a big challenge. I very much welcome the references in the mandate that the Minister mentioned earlier, because that says that there has been progress and I very much commend the Minister for what is written in. I look forward to his...

EU Police and Criminal Justice Measures: EUC Reports — Motion to Take Note (23 Jan 2014)

Baroness Corston: .... It is highly unlikely that the 130 measures were drafted without thought as to this jurisdiction, as the Government say, given 11 member states had agreed that their courts could make preliminary references to the Court of Justice for the interpretation of European Union police and criminal justice measures from 1999. Of course, there will be cases from time to time where the Government...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (26 Nov 2013)

Lord Newby: ...example, a decision to take on a risky acquisition may be more or less reasonable depending on earlier decisions to strengthen or weaken the bank’s capital position. These amendments also include references to agreeing to the carrying on of activities by a firm. This would add nothing to the offence as currently drafted, since the reference to agreeing to the firm carrying on certain...

Public Bill Committee: Offender Rehabilitation Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Probation service reform: Parliamentary approval (26 Nov 2013)

Paul Goggins: ...final say. In the end, we are talking about the safety of our constituents in the communities we represent. It is as simple as that. The probation service has evolved over time, and we have heard references throughout today’s contributions to the different services it provides. If we go way back into the 19th century, the Church of England Temperance Society and other voluntary...

High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill — Second Reading (and remaining stages) (19 Nov 2013)

Lord Cormack: ...as carefully as we might. This is a finite country. People have been talking this evening about France and Germany, which are enormous European countries on our continent, and have thrown in references to China, which is not exactly a miniscule country. Noble Lords sought to suggest that because those countries depend so much on high-speed rail, given the enormous distances that have to be...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) bill: New Clause 1 - Licence compliance, stipulations and control (19 Nov 2013)

Clive Efford: ...cases the Gambling Commission is told the refusal to provide information is because of overseas data protection requirements. The Gambling Commission reported that since 2008 there had been only ten references of suspicious transactions from remote gambling operators unlicensed in the UK, and it gave specific examples of the difficulties in obtaining adequate and timely information from...

Care Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (14 Oct 2013)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: ...who moves to do the same kinds of things in their day-to-day life as they currently do. It may not always be possible and it may be through different means, but that is the aim. Certainly there are references linking plans to outcomes elsewhere in the Bill, and that is very welcome. However, signalling the intention in Clause 37 would send a clear and powerful message which could not be...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL]: Third Reading (9 Jul 2013)

Lord Woolf: My Lords, I should remind the House, particularly in view of the generous way in which the Minister introduced the amendment, and his references to myself, that I am the chairman of the Prison Reform Trust, and received considerable help in putting forward the matter from that trust in that capacity. This is a considerable step forward in the way in which we treat criminal offenders who are...

Estimates 2013-14 — Department of Health — Health and Care Services (3 Jul 2013)

John Pugh: ...word. We talk about disease management, but we are less happy to talk about system management, except when we talk about micro-management. The sin of non-delegation is clearly a bad thing, but references to management tend to occur only in that context. We boast about culling managers, but what we need now is good executive management. If we are to implement the aims to which we have all...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: New Clause 1 — Transfer of personal allowances between spouses (2 Jul 2013)

Tim Loughton: ...solely in my name, to nudge the Chancellor to give a formal commitment in law to a Conservative party pledge—a popular one at that—and to name the day, and so dispel the concerns caused by vague references to the measure being introduced “in due course”. The measure was good enough to be in the Conservative party manifesto. It was good enough to be argued out in the coalition...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (15 May 2013)

Lord Hastings of Scarisbrick: ...Forum on Africa in Cape Town. I was attending there with two roles in mind: one as the vice chairman of the Global Agenda Council on the Future of Civil Society—I was delighted to hear the two references to civil society in Cyprus by the noble Lords, Lord Northbrook and Lord Sharkey—and the other as a director of KPMG, in which I declare an interest and to which I shall refer later....

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (9 May 2013)

Lord Low of Dalston: ...be about, inter alia, constitutional affairs and equalities. I intend to speak mostly about equalities but I cannot forbear to make a few remarks about constitutional affairs. Apart from a couple of references to working in co-operation with the devolved Administrations and continuing to make the case for Scotland remaining part of the United Kingdom, there is not really anything about the...

EU: Budget Report — Motion to Approve (25 Apr 2013)

Lord Eatwell: ...a few months later, it is not surprising that revenues rose sharply. However, with the destruction of business confidence brought about by the Government's foolish rhetoric of 2010-11 -those silly references to Britain being in the same position as Greece, and the oft repeated but entirely false assertion that high levels of government debt inevitably lead to economic collapse-growth...

AS-levels and A-levels — [Jim Dobbin in the Chair] (16 Apr 2013)

Nicholas Dakin: .... It has concerns about the impact on widening participation, both because without AS-level grades an increased emphasis on more subjective measures is likely—such as predicted grades and school references that might disadvantage some applicant groups—and because AS-level grades can boost confidence in candidates from low participation backgrounds. I have certainly seen the impact of...
