Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (4th Day) (18 Jan 2017)

Baroness Warwick of Undercliffe: ...that, on one count, there are 700 alternative providers; I gather that the more reliable figure is 400, but that is still more than double the number of established universities and clearly offers students a great deal more choice than was available, say, five or 10 years ago. Inevitably, though, there is a greater risk of poor-quality provision if these providers are not subject to the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Home Energy and Lifestyle Management: Green Deal Scheme (18 Jan 2017)

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Beecham: ...that, during the passage of the Bill, the matters that were to be subject to secondary legislation had not been consulted upon—and we have yet to see the results of consultation, let alone a good deal of the secondary legislation that will be required to implement what is now the Act. Now, of course, we have this Bill, and a White Paper on housing is apparently imminent. It is not...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy: DWP Policies and Low-income Households (17 Jan 2017)

Damian Hinds: ...continue to review and reform our support based on what we know works. We will build on the success of universal credit and provide more personalised employment support by consulting on further reform of the work capability assessment. Our Green Paper on health and work makes proposals that go further, marking a new era in joint working between the welfare and health systems. Our change to...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy (17 Jan 2017)

Therese Coffey: ...and doing business within our own Union are created. That means maintaining the necessary common standards and frameworks for our own domestic market, empowering the UK as an open, trading nation to strike the best trade deals around the world and protect the common resources of our islands. The Prime Minister has made absolutely plain that as we do that, no decisions currently taken by...

Digital Equipment Ltd: Pension Scheme (17 Jan 2017)

Alex Cunningham: I certainly agree with that. Dealing with the situation retrospectively is extremely difficult, and I do not think that is possible, but we have various Green Papers coming through the system in the near future, and I hope the Minister is listening carefully about the problems we have seen. There are so many schemes out there, and we have schemes that are not operating effectively for the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Opposition Business: Failure of the Executive (17 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: ...shoulders. That, sir, is a biological impossibility and a social and political undesirability, but it is what we have been reduced to by the politics of this place, and that is what I would like to deal with in the couple of minutes left to me. We can talk about who is right and who is wrong — I do it as well — on RHI and all the rest of the things, but many of the problems...

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Kate Green: The EU is in the process of concluding international trade deals with, for example, Japan and Canada, which the UK Government have warmly supported, believing they will be good for the UK economy; I understand that the UK Government estimate that the Japanese deal could be worth £5 billion annually to the British economy. How quickly can those deals be replaced when we leave the EU, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2017)

Carol Monaghan: Many of my constituents are concerned about the future of the Green Investment Bank in relation to possible asset stripping, the worth of the golden share and the suitability of the buyer. What is the Department doing to ensure that the UK taxpayer is given a fair deal on the sale of the bank and to ensure that the bank retains its green focus?

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future Relationship with Europe (17 Jan 2017)

Ross Greer: ...entirely incompatible with “Scotland’s Place in Europe”. Theresa May would have to depart far from today’s speech to even get halfway towards the Scottish Government’s proposals, which we in the Greens had already seen as being at the limit of reasonable compromise. The Fraser of Allander institute report that was commissioned by Parliament—and which has...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017: Motion to Delay (16 Jan 2017)

Steven Agnew: As things stand, the Green Party is unable to support the proposals brought forward by the Minister for the Economy, so we welcome the opportunity of an adjournment so that we can glean more information on them. The Minister has asked us to gamble on his proposal — gamble that it will save us more money in money not lost to the RHI scheme and save us more money than it will cost in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Supplementary Payment (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (16 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: ...the dysfunctional nature of the Sinn Féin-DUP Government. It is more than that and deeper: it is the dysfunctional nature of a system that is based entirely on trying to reconcile orange and green politics. It is necessary under our political system that people identify themselves as either orange or green to have any real impact. We, the Green Party and the Alliance Party do not...

Circle Housing and Orchard Village (12 Jan 2017)

Gavin Barwell: ...(Jon Cruddas) on securing this debate on Circle Housing and Orchard Village. It is an issue that I am familiar with, for two reasons. First, I am sure he is aware that the hon. Member for Bethnal Green and Bow (Rushanara Ali) raised in an Adjournment debate at the end of last year issues relating to Old Ford and the impact on her constituents. The hon. Gentleman referred to Colin Nickless...

Women in the House of Commons: Women and Equalities Committee (12 Jan 2017)

Maria Miller: ...their communities, or that women do not want the opportunity to be a Member of Parliament and to improve the lives of those who live in their community. Therefore, this startling imbalance should cause us all a great deal of concern. At best we are failing to reach out; at worst the parties, which are, for the most part, responsible for selecting candidates, are failing in their duty. The...

Green Investment Bank - Question (12 Jan 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...Lord to his new Front Bench duties and look forward to working with him. The issue that has just been raised is important. Surely it is now clear that the trustees will be unable to prevent the green mission being changed, because the way that the deal is structured means they can be bypassed. Is it right that there will be no obligation on the new owners to continue investing in the UK,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (12 Jan 2017)

Margaret Ferrier: Dozens of my constituents in Blantyre have complained to me about being mis-sold solar panels by Home Energy and Lifestyle Management Systems under the Government’s green deal programme. By way of an answer to a written parliamentary question, I have learned that that company, which has since gone into liquidation, was sanctioned by the Government in November 2015 for breaches of the...

Scottish Parliament: Education and Skills Organisations (Performance and Role) (12 Jan 2017)

Jamie Greene: the committee, CBI Scotland said that “Challenges include the potential bureaucratic nature of interactions” with SDS, that there was a risk of duplication and that there were opportunities to simplify the way in which people deal with the agency. In its submission, Colleges Scotland agreed with that, saying that “the skills landscape would benefit from ... a less...

Green Investment Bank (11 Jan 2017)

Nick Hurd: ...he is again making assumptions about asset-stripping. He is aware of the structure that we have established, having doubtless been involved in the parliamentary debate about it. There is a great deal of concern on both sides of the House about protecting the integrity of the green purpose of the GIB, which is why we have gone through the process—which I think is robust—of...
