Backbench Business: Summer Adjournment (21 Jul 2016)

Michael Ellis: ...that the summer of music, arts and culture is coming up in Gloucester. People will no doubt want to visit for that. The hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) spoke of her success in dealing with B&Q, and I congratulate her on that. Reducing wider remuneration packages and blaming the national living wage would be short-sighted and would yield only a one-off gain....

EU Exit: Devolved Governments — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (21 Jul 2016)

Ian Blackford: ...to seek to secure options for protecting Scotland’s relationship with the EU. I am glad to say that it was supported not only by the Scottish National party, but by the Labour party, the Greens and the Lib Dems, working in consensus for Scotland’s interests. Scotland’s Parliament came together to affirm its view on Scotland’s place within Europe. We in the SNP...

School Funding (21 Jul 2016)

Justine Greening: I recognise the pressures that my hon. Friend has just set out. This now gives us time to look at how we can deal effectively with those issues. We should also recognise that, while some schools are disadvantaged by the current formula, there will also be changes for schools under the new formula, and this gives us a chance to work effectively with them to ensure that there is a sensible and...

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

John Healey: ..., people with dementia, people with mental illness or learning disabilities, people fleeing domestic violence and some of our veterans. The Secretary of State’s predecessor, the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), either did not spot it or did not stop it, but either way the Chancellor completely ignored him last year. One of the tests for the new...

EU Referendum: Gibraltar — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2016)

Robin Walker: Thank you very much, Mr Evans. It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve under your chairmanship. It is also a real pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West). She said in an earlier interjection that it was quality rather than quantity from the Labour Benches and I think she was spot-on in that comment. She also spoke about nervousness in the outcome of...

Carbon Budget Order 2016 - Motion to Approve (19 Jul 2016)

Lord Deben: ...on the record from our new Prime Minister. As the independent chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, I shall keep both of them down to their words. However, I merely remark that there is no way of dealing with these situations unless business is part of it—so I am not instinctively opposed, particularly as infrastructure, too, has to deal with these issues. I am pleased to see...

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Justine Greening: ...the first since the 1990s, enable us to maintain the world-class reputation of our higher education institutions, because quality will be built in at every stage—from the way we regulate new entrants to how we deal with poor-quality providers already in the system. I recognise that there have been concerns about the quality of new providers—that they cannot possibly be as good...

Backbench Business: Persecution of Religious Minorities: Middle East — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (19 Jul 2016)

Peter Grant: ...world where intolerance has grown to extreme levels, let us not forget our own often shameful recent past. In specific reference to the comment by the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green), what does anyone think was the impact on tolerance and understanding when a newspaper complained recently that Channel 4 had the temerity to allow a Muslim woman to report on a terrorist...

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Robert Jenrick: ...terms of nation states and other major powers around the world, as other hon. Members have said. A couple of days ago, I saw on television the dignified face of Marina Litvinenko, as she stood on College Green, outside this building. She is a living testament to the danger and unpredictability of the regime in Russia. We have seen further evidence of the growing long-term instability in...

Co-Operatives (14 Jul 2016)

Anna Turley: ...membership, democratic member control, economic participation of members, autonomy, independence, education and training, co-operation and concern for community. Those principles all have a great deal to offer for the economic challenges that we face today. Never have the values of self-help, responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity been more important. With those values...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Beith: ...welcome clarification from the Government of its current understanding of the Wilson Doctrine”. The amendment allows for that and allows us to consider whether the procedures in the Bill make a better job of dealing with the difficult issue of whether communications of an elected member of a legislature should be intercepted and, if so, on what authority. While it existed, the Wilson...

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (12 Jul 2016)

Diane Abbott: ...speeches today, including from the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes), my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) and my hon. Friend the Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West). I also note the presence of my hon. Friends the Members for Hampstead and Kilburn (Tulip Siddiq), for Hammersmith (Andy Slaughter) and for Edmonton (Kate Osamor). This...

EU Referendum: Energy and Environment (12 Jul 2016)

Phil Boswell: ...case with this Government and previous Governments. There have been about 18 legislative changes in the oil and gas sector in the past 15 years. Allied to that, there has been the withdrawal from green initiatives such as the zero-carbon home policy. The green deal home improvement fund was abolished. Solar subsidies have been cut and the onshore wind farm subsidy has been removed. The...

Wales Bill: “Part 8C (11 Jul 2016)

Paul Flynn: ...in the world. They are in trouble because their energy is so expensive, yet a source of energy is available at their doorstep—free, British, eternal and absolutely predictable. Amendments 130 to 132 deal with renewable energy schemes. These Welsh Government amendments would create a duty on the Secretary of State to consult Welsh Ministers before establishing or amending a renewable...

Agriculture and Horticulture - Motion to Take Note (7 Jul 2016)

Baroness Redfern: ...cheese, which is one to be sampled. Our colleges must re-energise and begin to reform, encourage and stimulate interest to make a serious case for a place in further and higher education courses, to reduce our green skills gap and make a case for new opportunities in this sector. It is about changing mindsets, because there is much more to agriculture and horticulture than many people...

International Trade Opportunities - Motion to Take Note (7 Jul 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...sterling as a positive, which we have seen reflected in the relative share prices of, for example, Rolls-Royce and GSK and some of the best British companies. However, I take the point made by my noble friend Lord Green that, because of changes in supply chains, this is slightly less significant in its impact than what we saw, for example, after Black Wednesday. As someone who has worked...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: VAT: women’s sanitary products (7 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...the face of defeat over the ultra-shambles Budget. I know that the Minister will appreciate my saying that the Chancellor became the first in history to accept not one but two amendments to his own Budget resolution: one was in my name, on green energy VAT, and the other was, of course, in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Dewsbury. Do not worry, I have more to say on green energy...

EU Nationals in the Uk: Cross-examination of Vulnerable Witnesses (6 Jul 2016)

Mike Penning: ...this issue forms part of the package that I will announce in a moment. We seek to make more victims feel safe within the criminal justice system, and I have pledged to the House that we will publish a Green Paper on a victims law before the summer recess—I have worked on that extensively with Her Majesty’s Opposition and other parties in the House. I have also considered the...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Haskel: ...the WTO rules and MiFID II, rules that we have always respected. This probably means competing against tariff barriers or imposing some of our own. This fall in the value of the pound can help us deal with some of these tariff barriers, but it is the quality and excellence of our goods and services that will enable us to pay our way. Betting on the pound’s going down implies...

Broadband in Wales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...he would take from what I said was “have access to superfast broadband”. There is a lot of terminology in this debate, but basically, yes, it is called fibre to the cabinet—it goes to the big green box—and sometimes people in homes who think they will have access to superfast broadband do not get it, but it is important to stress that the numbers we use are audited...
