Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Sandy Martin: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) for introducing the Bill. I agree with the hon. Member for Bolton West (Chris Green) about the importance of deterrence. I am sure we all find it hard to comprehend how anyone could wish to harm the emergency workers, such as paramedics or firefighters, who have rushed to help them. It is precisely because emergency workers attend...

Battle of Passchendaele - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: to ask, how certain are we about what happened? The poet in January 1936, nearly 20 years after he took part in the Battle of Passchendaele. When he was asked to choose a poem to represent all of his war poetry—and there is a great deal of it—he chose this one. In it, he asks himself if he can remember the war and describes his feelings when those memories return, often...

EU: Transition Deal - Question for Short Debate (19 Oct 2017)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...body whose decisions are binding on all members. A country that loses a dispute must change its policies to comply with the body or face compensation and retaliatory sanctions. David Allen Green, a law and policy commentator at the Financial Times, has said that since the WTO operates on a consensus decision-making system, the UK will be, “at the mercy of countries playing politics...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...much tax these companies pay matters. I hate to tell the Minister how to do his job, but I have looked at the PFI and public sector comparator documents used to assess the value for money of the deals, and they explicitly talk about the levels of tax that the companies pay and, indeed, look at how those would be traded off against the cost of borrowing to the public sector. My hon. Friend...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Damian Hinds: ...Member for Thornbury and Yate (Luke Hall). Those and similar features have been endemic in our system for decades, and I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith) and Lord Freud for their insight and determination not merely to regret those things but to reform them; not just to critique the system but to change it. My hon. Friend...

Property Agents: Registration - Statement (18 Oct 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...importance of looking at this whole area. He is right to say that there are many facets to this—including the social rental issue, which we are looking at separately, and on which there will be a Green Paper. I accept that action in relation to the private rented sector has been done in a somewhat piecemeal way, but it is an important part of the debate. The point has been made, but...

Nuclear Research and Technology (Science and Technology Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Oxburgh: ...system will clearly have a significant commercial advantage in what is likely to be a burgeoning market. The opportunity that we have is to re-enter the field of nuclear manufacture. In their industrial strategy Green Paper, the Government mentioned the possibility of a sector deal for the nuclear area. This is the opportunity. There are two main questions for the Government. First, what...

Brexit: Agriculture and Farm Animal Welfare (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Teverson: the 1980s the structural problems, with the milk powder mountains and wine lakes. More recently, we have had schemes such as set-aside that were not particularly successful, the issue of the green pound and all the other bits of Eurocrat jargon that surround the CAP. At the moment, under the most recent form of funding, the new system for landowners means that the more land you own, the...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Mark Field: I thank my constituency neighbour, the hon. Member for Bethnal Green and Bow (Rushanara Ali), for initiating this debate. I think all of us admire her heartfelt dedication and commitment to the Rohingya, and I appreciate the strength of feeling shown in the House during the debate. Given the constraints of time, I hope hon. Members will forgive me if I deal in writing over the next few days...

International Investment - Statement (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...the Minister for repeating the Statement in this House. I also thank him for his personal interest in these matters, not just in relation to Bombardier but for his deep involvement in shaping the Green Paper, which is shown through its pages. I turn to the last part of the Statement, which is the very welcome news that Bombardier and Airbus have determined to create a joint venture to look...

International Investment (17 Oct 2017)

John Woodcock: It is surely right to add smaller companies to the national security process, but this is only a Green Paper and secondary legislation takes time. Given how fast these fields of technology are moving, what are the Government doing right now to mitigate the risk of what we want to legislate to deal with in the future?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Housing: Insulation (17 Oct 2017)

Claire Perry: ...English Housing Survey data Since 2013, around 2.3 million energy efficiency measures were installed in around 1.8 million properties in Great Britain through the Energy Company Obligation and under Green Deal related schemes to the end of July 2017. Around 1.5 million of these installed measures were insulation measures.

Northern Cyprus - Question for Short Debate (16 Oct 2017)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...Cypriot community. It offers a better future for all Cypriots than any conceivable alternative. We have heard a few suggestions this evening. A united federal Cyprus could change lives profoundly on both sides of the green line. Instead of suspicion and economic stress, it could provide security and prosperity. That is why there were such high hopes for the reunification talks in the...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

John Woodcock: ...has had enthusiastic endorsements not only from the hon. Member for North West Hampshire, who belongs to the new generation of hard Brexiteer, but from the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Mr Duncan Smith), who I saw leaping to his feet enthusiastically, and others. He needs to look around at who is friends are on this and push much harder for the view that we might...

Future of Work - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...challenges, some of which have been highlighted today, not least by the noble Lord himself. The quality of the contributions on the subject is typical of this House and I believe it adds a great deal of value to the wider discussion. As an aside, I hope that, over time, I do not become a noble cobot. I also congratulate my noble friend Lady Wyld on such a personal and insightful maiden...

Housing: Availability and Affordability - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: councils and housing associations, we recognise that they need a stable investment environment. The noble Lord, Lord Stoneham, said that continuity was what his chief executive really wanted. That is why we have recently set out a long-term rent deal for social landlords in England, limiting increases to CPI plus 1% for five years; an announcement welcomed by David Orr, chief executive...

Clean Growth Strategy (12 Oct 2017)

Claire Perry: ...of course that drives down people’s bills—there is a huge win there. Yes, I can confirm that we are going forward with the legislation. He and I were both heavily involved in the design of the green deal, one of the facilitating mechanisms. Clearly, it did not work out as we would have liked. We want to consider new ways of financing that transition, which is why we are asking...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (12 Oct 2017)

Justine Greening: As I said, this is clearly an important area, but we have to recognise that we need to allow schools some discretion about how they deal with this alongside a range of other specific issues that the pupils that they teach may face. I do not agree with the hon. Lady; I do think that parents have a responsibility to play their role in making sure that children understand how to approach adult life.

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Clive Lewis: ...workers? A below-inflation pay offer. Let us call that what it is: a pay cut. On industrial agreements, there has been an attempt to ram through huge alterations to agreements reached with workers through the CWU. Let us be clear: Royal Mail is reneging on its deals. It has already been mentioned that, unsurprisingly, when balloted on strike action, on a 73% turnout, 89% of Royal Mail...
