Armed Forces Act (Continuation) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (21 Mar 2017)

Earl Howe: ...cavalry squadron to Poland, and that deployment too will be completed next month. My noble friends Lord King and Lord Robathan and the noble Lords, Lord Ramsbotham and Lord Touhig, referred to the importance of cyber. In 2014, GCHQ dealt with 100 cyber national security incidents per month. In 2015 the figure had risen to 200 a month. Each of these attacks damages companies, their...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill: Strategy for encouraging uptake of electric vehicles (21 Mar 2017)

Richard Burden: exactly what the new clause says: it asks Ministers to bring forward a strategy for encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles. The reason we are suggesting that is that the Bill, as it stands, deals with one element of the picture, which is the question of the charging infrastructure. That is important, but it is only one element of a larger picture. As the Government impact...

UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 Mar 2017)

Fabian Hamilton: ...than ever before, as we try to eliminate that which divides us and celebrate that which unites us. I had the privilege of being born and growing up in my hon. Friend’s constituency, in Willesden Green. The first 19 years of my life were spent there. Even in the 1960s, it was one of the most multicultural parts of Great Britain. It was something that we celebrated. Growing up there in...

Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Bill [Lords]: Fuel Poverty (21 Mar 2017)

Gill Furniss: No, I must move on. The Government’s flagship green deal policy is universally recognised as a failure. It was well intentioned, but we warned at the time that implementation was going very badly. By the end, the green deal improved only 15,000 homes at a cost of £17,000 per home. No replacement policy is in sight so far as I am aware. The Government have cancelled the zero-carbon...

Short and Holiday-Let Accommodation (Notification of Local Authorities) (21 Mar 2017)

Karen Buck: ...where addresses are not provided like Airbnb. We also rely heavily on members of the public notifying us of people short-letting properties. We are up against it but remain vigilant and continue to do all that we can to deal with the commercial lets (i.e. Those let in excess of 90 nights).” People who are using Airbnb and others of the various platforms for short and holiday lets...

Scottish Parliament: Independence Referendum (21 Mar 2017)

John Finnie: ...and material change to which the First Minister alluded, believe that the Scottish Government has an unquestionable mandate to take the course of action that it has taken. Likewise, the Scottish Green Party has an unquestionable mandate to pursue the section 30 order on the basis of a conference decision. People have made many particular points at times, but nothing stands still and we...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Richard Arkless: the people on the frontline of what some describe as a prison crisis—that is perhaps not the terminology that I would use in front of the Lord Chancellor. Our frontline prison officers have had to deal with the brunt of much of the under-resourcing, the psychoactive substances, and the violence in prisons. Everyone on both sides of the House should make it abundantly clear that we...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (2nd Day) (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...issue in Committee, the Minister gave what I felt to be a rather complacent response. He argued that a statutory code was unnecessary and that the onus should be on companies to develop their own in-house processes to deal with the issue. Of course, shortly after that, the Secretary of State decided that leaving it to the companies to sort out on their own was not really good enough after...

Energy Prices (16 Mar 2017)

Jesse Norman: ...that price rises are not inevitable. It is a fact that the majority of customers—around 66%—are on standard variable tariffs and continue to pay considerably more than customers on fixed-term deals. The Competition and Markets Authority highlighted that such customers are losing out by an estimated £1.4 billion a year—that figure is disputed—over the past few...

Future of Rail (Passenger Experience) — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (16 Mar 2017)

Clive Efford: ...-Trent on Virgin Trains on 23 February. I was fortunate that I did not take the 10.30 am train as my colleagues had. It had left, but perhaps my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), who is present, only got to Stafford at 8 o’clock in the evening, as my hon. Friend the Member for Greenwich and Woolwich (Matthew Pennycook) did. He texted me from there; he...

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Combined Authority (Election of Mayor) (Amendment) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (16 Mar 2017)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...of statutory instruments that we have been considering over the past few weeks in your Lordships’ House. I should first say that I welcome further devolution, although I have concerns with all these deals about the level of funding provided. This order puts the election for the mayor back by one year. There is also an issue about the patchwork nature of the deals and, as many other...

Business of the House (16 Mar 2017)

Valerie Vaz: Ofgem that there is no reason to increase prices…The time is up for these companies.”—[Official Report, 14 March 2017; Vol. 623, c. 177.] What does the Minister do? Instead of acting, he publishes a Green Paper. The Government must take a leaf out of the 2015 Labour manifesto and step in to put a cap on prices now—no more delay. In contrast with the obsession...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment and Support Allowance (16 Mar 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: The ESA work-related activity component, as detailed in the 2006 Green Paper “A New Deal for Welfare: Empowering People to Work”, was designed to act as an incentive to encourage people to participate in work-related activity, and therefore return to work more quickly, but with only 1 in 100 ESA claimants in the Work-Related Activity Group (WRAG) leaving the benefit each month it...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Climate Change Plan (16 Mar 2017)

Liam McArthur: ...all parties to keep ministers’ feet if not to the fire at least to the biomass boiler. In the time available to me, I will briefly touch on a number of issues, although I will leave my colleague Mike Rumbles to deal with the transport aspects—save for mentioning, yet again, the need for greater ambition around accelerating the take-up of electric vehicles, including continued...

Petition - No. 31 Bus Service to Cheadle from Hanley: Parental Alienation (15 Mar 2017)

Oliver Heald: ...this debate and on his interesting and thoughtful contribution? It is right to say at the outset that the Government are considering family justice matters at the moment with a view to having a Green Paper later this year.
