Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2017)

David Amess: ...met representatives of the World Trade Organisation. We learned at first hand how the problems that are being shared among colleagues about the difficulty of our leaving the European Union and being unable to secure good trade deals are a lot of nonsense.

Industrial Strategy - Question (19 Jul 2017)

Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury: My Lords, I congratulate the Government on their commitment in the Green Paper to an early deal for the creative industries sector, but how are they planning to support skills in that sector, which are so important, particularly given the prospect of Brexit, when they are not covered by the innovation and research budget? Is the DfE involved in discussion and happy to allow creative companies...

Catfishing and Social Media — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Ann Coffey: ...-Havnen had been catfished for four months. He has been so upset by the emotional strain it put him under that he has put a video on YouTube to warn other young people to be aware of catfish. What can be done?

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...these reports is disrespectful—in this case, to the noble Baroness, Lady Prashar, to the committee and to the whole House.

I think the report highlights key concerns and poses key questions for the...

Bill Presented: Scheduling of Parliamentary Business (17 Jul 2017)

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Justine Greening: ...for young people, including in sectors like education, but I recognise what my right hon. Friend says.

That said, I would like to make three broad...

Local Government Finance - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Baroness Donaghy: ...tax relief on new ultra-fast broadband lines? I understand that the telecoms infrastructure Bill will deliver the tax relief instead, backdated to April—the Minister is nodding.

He said that the reforms offered, “a bold and...

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Melanie Onn: ...? For the northern powerhouse? For devolution? Yes? All of the above, but not for parks, apparently, which I think his predecessor was. I think he should fight for that, given the comments today on green spaces in new towns. Nobody listening to the debate can have failed to hear the passion and pride that all hon. Members have in their new towns—or cities, as in the case of Milton...

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Jul 2017)

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: .... We talk about people trying to get better rates for their gas and electricity, and that is often best done by looking at online portals. If people do not have good internet access, the range of deals they can get is restricted. We have talked about watching television, too. Personally, I just switch the TV on; that goes back to my being a bit of a dinosaur. Many people, however, use...
