Scottish Parliament: United States (Visit) (20 Apr 2017)

Maree Todd: I was particularly pleased to see that climate action was high on the agenda, with the First Minister signing a climate deal with the Governor of California. In the Highlands and Islands and throughout Scotland, renewables are transforming communities, creating employment and helping us meet our climate targets. While the Tories at Westminster trash subsidies for green energy, how can we...

Scottish Parliament: Defence Basing Reforms (20 Apr 2017)

Keith Brown: ...agreement of the local authorities, I wrote to the defence secretary, asking for a minister to meet us. I should say that the local authorities represent all the parties in Parliament, perhaps with the exception of the Greens, so there was a cross-party decision to seek dialogue. However, the request was declined twice. I eventually met MOD minister Mark Lancaster a fortnight ago to...

Universal Credit — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Margaret Greenwood: ...for West Lancashire (Rosie Cooper) and my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), who spoke with real authority and insight. In 2010, the right hon.

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Alan Brown: ...Volkswagen, which would go a long way to funding a scrappage scheme, and perhaps also to starting to fund some of the wider infrastructure that the right hon. Member for Warley highlighted. The Government managed to negotiate a deal with Nissan in terms of Brexit, but a joined-up approach in terms of scrappage, trading in diesel cars and looking at wider issues would be much better than a...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Inclusive Education Campaign (19 Apr 2017)

Jamie Greene: ...TIE campaigners credit, I have to say that they came to the table with ideas, but those ideas now require robust action. There are certainly issues to address. How do we ensure that teachers are adequately equipped and trained to deal with the subject matter? Who pays for the training and the materials? When will they find the time to do the training? What do we say to teachers who are...

Communities and Local Government: Employment and Support Allowance (18 Apr 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: ...his speech. I shall concentrate my comments on the work-related activity group issue, which is at the heart of the debate. The hon. Member for Livingston (Hannah Bardell) asked about measures to deal with the disability employment gap.

Long-term Health Problems and Work Outcomes — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Apr 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. Part of the importance of the Green Paper is that it tries to push the concept of work as a health outcome. Whatever someone’s circumstances, meaningful activity is a key part of keeping them healthy, and it benefits their emotional wellbeing. We can already move forward with many of the things we trailed in the Green Paper. The one-stop shop will...

Serious Fraud Office (18 Apr 2017)

Robert Buckland: ...instances of fraud, bribery and corruption. It is an important part of the UK’s enforcement regime. It is right that questions continue to be asked about the adequacy of the way in which we deal with economic crime and how we can improve it. The hon. Lady was right to ask questions about LIBOR and the sort of activity that took place at the time of the economic crash in 2008....

Brexit and the EU Budget (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (6 Apr 2017)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...work in producing the report. However, it is unfortunate that it has been seized upon by the Brexiteers, who have affirmed that the United Kingdom could flounce out of the negotiations without a deal and avoid any obligations or commitments which had been incurred. “We don’t have to pay a penny”, trumpeted the Daily Mail. I have read the evidence given to the committee by...

Pension Schemes Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (5 Apr 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...amendments—Amendments 1, 3, 4 and 20. By way of background, we should acknowledge a degree of consensus emerging on the Bill, which has indeed been helped by the amendments before us today, which deal directly with some of the concerns we raised earlier in the parliamentary process. This does not mean that we consider, as should have been evident in the other place, that the...

NHS and Adult Social Care - Question (5 Apr 2017)

Lord Patel: I was hoping that the Minister might thank us for the brilliant and well-written report published today. It is, following a great deal of difficulty, a consensus report from all sides of this House, including the Spiritual Benches, and I hope that it will be met with political consensus when the politicians have had time to digest it. It has identified some key threats to the long-term...

Backbench Business: Local and Regional News — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (30 Mar 2017)

Jason McCartney: ...the then ITV boss, who was still raking in his £9 million bonus. I am now a Tory MP and that fat-cat boss is now a Labour peer—what a funny old world. I am a keen consumer of local news. I wake up in the morning with Liz Green on BBC Radio Leeds. I get a paper edition in my constituency office of the Huddersfield Examiner and follow it online—I also follow the Yorkshire...

Margaret Ferrier: ...Strategy, the hon. Member for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman), regarding over 40 of my constituents who allege they have been mis-sold solar panels by a Government-approved green deal provider, I am not entirely confident that his Department appreciates the magnitude of the problem and just how many people across Britain are suffering financial hardship because of this...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (29 Mar 2017)

Baroness Benjamin: ...its report, Growing up with the Internet, which covered the important subject of internet filters. We should not be lulled into complacency by Part 3 of the Bill. Although it is very welcome, it deals only with children’s access to pornography and not to any of the other subjects covered by internet filtering. The Select Committee heard of a, “worrying rise in unhappy and...

Petition - School Funding in Tonbridge and Malling: Hyde Housing (Lambeth) (29 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: ...the 2014-15 accounts and receipts. Those took Hyde—this was slightly better—well over six months to finally provide. After my constituent went through those, there were numerous things that were obviously incorrect, and lots of invoices were not there or had not been identified by Hyde. After a number of exchanges—my constituent dealt with 17 different people in Hyde in...

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: ...the next two or three years. In our report we made it clear that we thought that was a risky move indeed. I do not want to repeat a lot of what was said by the hon. Member for Finchley and Golders Green, who made a comprehensive and excellent speech, but I hope the Minister will explain to us what monitoring the Government are doing on the impact. What will they do in response both to the...
