Backbench Business: Road Traffic Law Enforcement — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (23 Feb 2017)

Richard Burden: that since 2010 that progress has stalled. The latest rolling figures show that there has been no reduction in total road deaths and a 2% increase in serious casualties in the past 12 months. Meanwhile, even though a great deal was achieved over those decades, drinking and driving-related casualties have been effectively stuck at about 240 a year since 2010. My hon. Friend the Member...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...and we are continuing to look at these issues with my noble friend. I turn to Amendment 6A and some of the questions raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Pinnock, in relation to brownfield land and the green belt. She will know, because we discussed this in Committee, that there is a lot in the housing White Paper about the green belt. A lot of things are currently being processed in...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (23 Feb 2017)

Derek Mackay: the draft budget. It includes an additional £120 million for educational attainment, £107 million additional investment in health and social care integration, increased capital resources, increased access to city deals funding and increased revenues from the council tax changes that were approved by Parliament. By working constructively with the Greens to reach agreement, we...

Lancashire County Council (22 Feb 2017)

David Morris: ...problem in Lancashire. It is extremely rare to have county council officers also officiating over the LEP. The LEP’s agenda seems to be the same as the county council’s, meaning that the growth deal funding is used in Preston and is Preston-centric. Lancashire County Council also prioritises Blackpool, presumably because of the combined authority proposals. The LEP currently...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (22 Feb 2017)

Chris Matheson: ...? Other hon. Members may also be suffering from this creeping issue. About a year ago, I had a problem with North Wales police when contacting them on behalf of a constituent. The force refused to deal with me unless I provided written permission from the constituent that I was able to talk to them on his behalf. I pointed out at the time that I had not plucked his name from the electoral...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Lansley: ...agreements with the European Union, will derive from this Parliament. We must exercise that authority at the right time—that is, before the die is cast. Of course, the Government promise a vote on the final deal, but that is not good enough. Parliament must be fully engaged with, and party to, the potential outcomes before that happens. The noble Lord, Lord Kerr, was quite right to...

Criminal Finances Bill: Social Security and Pensions (21 Feb 2017)

Caroline Nokes: ...index, and will also increase the enhanced disability, severe disability, carer and pensioner premiums. The Government are committed to building a country that works for everyone, which is why the forthcoming Green Paper will identify and address the root causes of child poverty, building on the new statutory indicators of parental worklessness and children’s educational attainment,...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Gilbert of Panteg: ...diplomats, our civil servants, this House and the other place face a great test. A very heavy burden falls on the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. We now have to work together to get the best deal for Britain. I hope that we will work together in such a way that we restore trust in our politics, and that in our debates we will be thinking of the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate Resolution (21 Feb 2017)

Murdo Fraser: ...are such that the one earner in the household earns just above the higher-rate threshold. If such people are earning £45,000, they will pay an extra £400 a year. I am not surprised that the Greens back the plans—indeed, they would like to go further. I do not agree with Mr Harvie, but at least he has a principled stance. It seems to me that the SNP is caught right in the...

Scottish Parliament: LGBT History Month Scotland 2017 (21 Feb 2017)

Patrick Harvie:’s project—an HIV agency in Glasgow—which was to create a book of training exercises for mainstream youth workers who wanted to address their understanding and their level of confidence in dealing with LGBT issues. One of the exercises involved a timeline. Each person picked a card from a pile, which had on it an event, incident or quotation, and they were asked to put...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield: quote, which is that the state is, “the coldest of all cold monsters”. How chilling too can be the state’s artefacts—even its paper ones. For a remainer such as me, these two little light green pages that capture the Bill before us represent the coldest of cold print. Yet I accept the result of the referendum, and I believe that we need now to crack on with the...

High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill: Power to Acquire Land Compulsorily (20 Feb 2017)

Caroline Spelman: I could not agree more with my right hon. Friend. The fact is that we now know so much more about the true value of green space that is lost—we can actually calculate the value of the natural capital. I set up the Natural Capital Committee, which reports to the Treasury, so that we no longer make decisions on the assumption that nature provides things for free. That is not true, because...

Vauxhall/Opel: Proposed Takeover (20 Feb 2017)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...that any job cuts are likely to fall on Opel’s six plants in Germany, the UK and Spain. The German Government have already demanded that there must be no job or plant losses as a result of any deal, and German papers reported yesterday that PSA had pledged to continue operating all four of Opel’s German production sites. Will the Secretary of State tell us what action the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Auto-enrolment (20 Feb 2017)

Damian Green: ...did not vote against it on Second or Third Reading, so the hon. Gentleman cannot have objected to it that strongly—actually set up a new system of regulation, particularly of master trusts, that deals with not just transparency but a whole range of aspects, so this relatively new form of financial body is now much better regulated than it was before. I would have thought that the...

Petition - Closure of Cambuslang Jobcentre: Holocaust Memorial Museum (9 Feb 2017)

Edward Leigh: be able to visit a holocaust memorial museum uninhibited. We want crowds to experience this building, and so it is counter-intuitive to site it at a place that already suffers from congestion and does not have the capacity to deal with the number of people we hope will visit. The abbey and Palace of Westminster are recognised by UNESCO as a world heritage site, and there is some danger,...
