Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted: ...was conspicuous by what it left out and not only for the issues that made headlines. I want to know where corporate governance and responsibility have gone. In the previous Parliament, we had a Green Paper on corporate governance, and there were interesting things all over pages 17 and 18 of the Conservative manifesto, from criminal offences for directors putting pension schemes at risk...

Debate on the Address: Education and Local Services (27 Jun 2017)

Clive Betts: ...City Region. I accept that it is the region’s fault that we have not got further than we have so far, and the last Minister for the northern powerhouse was extremely helpful in that regard, but are the Government still open to new deals? I have to mention the 100% business rate retention scheme, which features in the Local Government Finance Bill. On Second Reading, the...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Manufacturing Industries: North East (27 Jun 2017)

Steven Baker: We will secure a deal that works for the entire United Kingdom. We want to ensure that UK companies, including those in the North East, have the maximum freedom to trade with and operate within European markets. As a priority, we will seek a bold and ambitious Free Trade Agreement that is of greater scope and ambition than any such existing agreement. We want to have the greatest possible...

Scottish Parliament: Royal Bank of Scotland Job Losses (Support for Workers) (27 Jun 2017)

Keith Brown: ...are being jeopardised by the decision. It is, of course, possible for the majority shareholder—the UK Government—to step in, in the circumstances. If, rather than getting involved in Brexit and deals and bungs and whatever else, the UK Government were to concentrate on the day job of keeping people in work, we would have a better employment situation in Scotland. If Jamie...

Scottish Parliament: Treasury Funding (Devolved Administrations) (27 Jun 2017)

Murdo Fraser: If the cabinet secretary wants to see a grubby deal, all he has to do is look at the Green Party benches behind him. Given the Scottish Government’s new-found enthusiasm for the Barnett formula, I ask the cabinet secretary to give me a very simple answer—yes or no will suffice—to this question: is it still the policy of the Scottish Government to pursue full fiscal autonomy...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...on these points. As for the environment, it is the pursuit of the wrong policies that we criticise on this side of the House. Do we remember that David Cameron’s Tory Government was to be the greenest ever? Do we remember the days of the huskies and various concepts such as that? Yet there has been limited investment in renewable energy. Of course, the Government sold off the green...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Kate Green: ...affairs. Over the weekend I asked my constituents what they thought the main focus of this Parliament should be. Overwhelmingly, those I spoke to were clear that the focus should be getting the best Brexit deal we can. I am not surprised that they considered that to be of such significance. After all, our constituency has a long history of manufacturing, distribution and trading. We...

Northern Ireland (26 Jun 2017)

Damian Green: Let me deal with some of the detailed points that the right hon. Lady has made. She seems to think that providing more money for Northern Ireland health and education, and broadband and other parts of infrastructure, in some way makes it less likely that an Executive will be formed. I can assure her that it makes it more likely that an Executive will be formed. She asked about infrastructure...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...and intervening in the gig economy to give workers back some control over their lives. The upgrade needed to the way our economy works includes an industrial strategy that meets the challenges of our times. Sadly, the Government’s much heralded Green Paper on their industrial strategy has come in for considerable criticism. As the Lords’ Science and Technology Select Committee...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Oliver Dowden: ...expect to acquire one’s own home would lead us to question our interest in maintaining this capitalist system, which is so effective for our country. In my remarks, I wish to address how we can deal with that problem. First, let me say that, as a Government, we have made progress on this matter. I am proud of some of the things that I did during my time in Downing Street as an...

Scottish Parliament: Freedom of Information Requests (21 Jun 2017)

Graham Simpson: ..., the open letter signed by 23 journalists expressing grave concerns about the way in which FOl has been handled by this Government. The letter was mentioned by Neil Findlay, Alex Rowley and Jamie Greene. As Edward Mountain said in his opening speech, the journalists complained of information requests being repeatedly delayed beyond the 20-day deadline; emails asking for updates being...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture (21 Jun 2017)

Peter Chapman: ...that the Audit Scotland report makes clear still need further work. The Scottish Government is required by EU regulations to make 95 per cent of payments by the end of June and there is a great deal of uncertainty about whether that can still be achieved or whether farmers will be left waiting yet again. Frankly, I do not believe that it can be achieved, but maybe the cabinet secretary can...

Scottish Parliament: Edinburgh Festivals (15 Jun 2017)

Jackson Carlaw: ...might be concerned to learn that I actually agree that Brexit presents challenges. I hope that the challenges will prove to be at the margins, but given that funding support comes from Europe, there will be funding challenges to deal with. Jeremy Balfour gave us some childhood nostalgia. In the great tradition of Norman Wisdom and Eric Sykes, Gordon MacDonald used a prop to entertain us...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (Opportunities for Growth) (14 Jun 2017)

Patrick Harvie: ...the prospect of a brighter future, we need to invest in that transition instead of kidding people on that business as usual will continue. The SNP motion mentions increasing productivity, and the Greens agree in principle with that. In that respect, I mention in particular the UK Government’s obsession with reducing public debt; the fact is that, if we do that without increasing...

Scottish Parliament: Lyme Disease (14 Jun 2017)

Donald Cameron: ...that there are members from around Scotland in the chamber tonight, which demonstrates how prevalent the disease is throughout the country. On my way into the chamber, I spoke to my colleague Jamie Greene, who spoke about the issues in Arran and about how a group there is dealing with the disease. Other members will cover the broader aspects of the issue, but I will talk about how Lyme...

Scottish Parliament: Human Trafficking and Exploitation (13 Jun 2017)

Claire Baker: I very much acknowledge the Government’s commitment in the matter, through this afternoon’s debate and the strategy. I start by thanking my colleague Jenny Marra MSP, who has done a great deal of work on human trafficking, including proposing a member’s bill. She has really helped to raise the profile of the crime, both in Parliament and among the public. She is on maternity...

Scottish Parliament: Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (13 Jun 2017)

Neil Findlay: I thank members of my own party, Greens, Liberal Democrats and members of the Tory party for signing the motion. Sadly, no member of the Scottish National Party managed to sign it. The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, which was introduced by a Labour Government, aimed to provide the public with the right to access information that is held by the state about what is being done in...
