Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes (Conversion of Guaranteed Minimum Pensions) Bill: Clause 1 - Conversion of guaranteed minimum pensions (2 Feb 2022)

Margaret Ferrier: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Efford. I am grateful to you and to Committee members for joining me today to look at the detail of this legislation, which, as I said on Second Reading, is very technical in appearance but has a clear and simple purpose. The Bill will help occupational pension schemes to convert guaranteed minimum pensions, at the same time correcting the...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Second Reading (30 Nov 2021)

Lord Rennard: ...Boris Johnson and less to Parliament. It is therefore in my view a Bill that Parliament should oppose, and I remain surprised that it has so much support from the Labour Benches. When Labour left government in 2010, the Labour Party manifesto of that year was committed to the principle of fixed-term Parliaments. Labour’s opposition to the 2011 Fixed-term Parliaments Bill was clearly...

Shrewsbury Town Centre Redevelopment: Nuclear Power Funding (9 Nov 2021)

Virginia Crosbie: I beg to move, That this House has considered funding for nuclear power. It is a pleasure to speak in this important debate on funding for nuclear power. The UK has a long and proud history of pioneering nuclear power. In the 1940s, British scientists were pre-eminent in the development of nuclear energy. In February 1955, the Government published a White Paper entitled “A Programme of...

Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill (3 Nov 2021)

George Freeman: No, I will not give way. I am under time pressure and I need to deal with all the points that have been raised—[Interruption.] I have at least half an hour of questions to answer, not least from the hon. Member himself. The Bill will make it easier to attract, and reduce the cost of, capital. However, a number of points have been raised by hon. Members. I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend...

Ways and Means - Financial Statement (27 Oct 2021)

Rishi Sunak: Madam Deputy Speaker, I have heard your words and those of Mr Speaker. I have the greatest respect for you both and want to assure you that I have listened very carefully to what you have said. May I also send my best wishes to the Leader of the Opposition? I know that the whole House will join me in doing that. With your permission, Madam Deputy Speaker, let me turn to today’s Budget....

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill (6 Jul 2021)

Alistair Carmichael: The point is that, as I said, it was a necessary modernisation; we are undoing something that, 10 or 11 years ago, was a necessary modernisation. The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster spoke about the Ted Heath Government in the 1970s. The world was a very different place in the 1970s. I suspect that the hon. Member for Totnes (Anthony Mangnall) is not old enough to remember it. I should...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 21 - Minimum sentence for an offence under section 1 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (22 Jun 2021)

Alex Cunningham: It is impossible for anyone who has not been through it to imagine the trauma of being raped. That is why I will start with the anonymous voice of a rape victim who was attacked on 29 February last year. The attack happened after a night out in Marlborough. The victim awoke to find 20-year-old Killian Hutchinson assaulting her before raping her. She told police officers that she felt unable...

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 6 (21 Jun 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I rise with a very long list of amendments to speak to, and I shall begin by very briefly addressing the points made by the noble Lord, Lord Curry of Kirkharle, and the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Pickering, in response to my noble friend’s Amendment 32. I begin by thanking the noble Lord, Lord Curry of Kirkharle, for offering his support for my Amendment 11 on soils. I agree...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 May 2021)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, the UK services industry accounts for 80% of our economy, and the UK is the second largest services exporter in the world. It is quite remarkable how well respected our services industry is, and our UK professional qualifications are, frankly, the most well regarded in the world in many cases, whether for our lawyers, our accountants or our doctors. The Bill was announced in the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (13 May 2021)

Lord True: My Lords, it is a privilege as always to close another outstanding debate in the House of Lords, although, if noble Lords will allow me, I thought aspects of the personal attack on my right honourable friend the Prime Minister by the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, in terms that would have been ruled out of order in the other place, would probably have been better suited to the Twittersphere than...

Financial Services Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (14 Apr 2021)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 37C in this group. I declare that I chair the National Mental Capacity Forum. I hold the noble Lords, Lord Young of Cookham and Lord Blunkett, in the highest esteem, and I am most grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Young, for the time he spent talking through my reservations about this amendment as drafted. The discussions relating to child trust funds have...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Stalking: Sentencing (2 Mar 2021)

Chris Philp: The Ministry of Justice has published information on convictions and sentences for stalking offences in England and Wales, up to December 2019, available in the ‘Principal offence proceedings and outcomes by Home Office offence code’ data tool, which can be found here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/ system/uploads/attachment_data/file/938554/HO-code-tool-prin...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Feb 2021)

Lord True: ...I may be allowed a personal comment, I too was moved by what the noble Lord, Lord Winston, said, because the reason there were seven years between my late brother and me was that my mother was one of the women to whom he referred and, of course, never forgot that. In my life, I have tried to follow the example of that remarkable woman. Part of that example was always that you should listen...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 164 (10 Feb 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, that this has been a very good debate. I join noble Lords in commending the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, who has done a huge amount of work in this area and with whom I have worked over several years now. I think she would join me in paying tribute to John Clough—his daughter met her death at the hands of a serial stalker—and his...

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 12 (26 Jan 2021)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, the principle aim of the amendment is to ensure that the Parole Board retains its vital role in assessing risk to determine the safe release of terrorist offenders given a serious terrorism sentence or an extended sentence. I am grateful to the noble Lords, Lord Anderson and Lord Ramsbotham, for supporting the amendment. The amendment would remove Clause 27 and replace it with a new...

Lord Chancellor’s Oath and the Rule of Law — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (14 Oct 2020)

Joanna Cherry: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Lord Chancellor’s oath and the rule of law. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Twigg. I should start by declaring an interest, as a non-practising member of the Scottish Bar, the Faculty of Advocates; as an honorary bencher of the Middle Temple; and as the lead petitioner in the case of Cherry v. Advocate General, in which...

Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill [Lords]: New Schedule 4 - Regulations under section (Implementation of other agreements on private international law (No. 3)) (6 Oct 2020)

Bob Neill: We have had a constructive set of debates on the Bill, and I pay tribute to all Members for the approach that has been adopted. I pay particular tribute to the skill and elan with which the Minister has steered the Bill through the House: he is a credit to our mutual profession. He is certainly no Henry VIII—and I say that in a good way—but of course he and I are both proud members of the...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

David Linden: This is the first opportunity I have had to speak on the Bill, which I have profound concerns about, so I want to use the early part of my remarks to lay out my clear objections to the Bill. After that, I will seek to address part 5 of the Bill, which is the focus of our line-by-line scrutiny tonight. Like many colleagues from Scotland, I have grave concerns that the Bill is not only a slap...
