Petition - Oundle Library: Mental Health Provision: Children and Young People (12 Dec 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: ...Berger) for bringing this debate to the House. As usual, she speaks with clear passion on this subject, and she has very clearly outlined the challenges that we face. We have brought forward this Green Paper exactly because of the sort of examples she has articulated, and we need to do a lot more for our young people. The Green Paper is centred on the support we are going to give through...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Anna Soubry: ...anybody else who might be listening to this speech, that the profound difference between those people and people like me—right hon. and hon. Members on both sides of the House, right across these green Benches—is that we have accepted the result, although it may break our hearts to do so. That is quite a dramatic statement, but many people are genuinely upset that we are going...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Tracey Crouch: ...lotteries. Of course I do. I certainly do. Like those of many colleagues, my constituency has benefited from society lottery funding, including for Kent search and rescue and the Luton Millennium Green community nature park. So naturally, like many people, I understand the value of both society lotteries and national lotteries. I want to deal up front with the issue of the advice from the...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Funding — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Marcus Jones: most of those in my speech. I apologise if I do not have time to respond to all the questions asked by hon. Members. I undertake to write to them if I do not cover the points raised or in order to deal with them in more detail. The Government remain committed to funding vital refuge services. Since 2014, we have dedicated £33.5 million in direct grant funding to local authorities...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...course. Just as with the Budget, this Bill is not fit for purpose and not fit for the future. It falls woefully short of preparing the country for the challenges it faces: from the chaotic no-deal Brexit that this Government still will not rule out to the longest squeeze on wages since Napoleonic times; from record rates of child poverty to our slowdown in productivity, which is unique...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Caroline Lucas: ...referendum, which was signed by no fewer than 864 of my constituents. For the purposes of full disclosure, the other petition, which was against a ratification referendum, was signed by 10. The Green party fully respects the fact that voters made a decision and delivered a message to Parliament on 23 June last year, but we have also consistently said that the referendum was, and could...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Kate Green: A number of businesses in my constituency manufacture goods that they then ship direct to end customers in the Republic of Ireland. Will those businesses continue to benefit from a special deal or full alignment in the same way as businesses that manufacture in Northern Ireland?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2017)

Justine Greening: First, the new national funding formula much better helps schools to deal with this issue of students coming into schools in year. Secondly, following the race disparity audit, we launched an exclusions review to make sure that the whole process around how a child is permanently excluded is properly delivered.

Plans to Improve the Natural Environment and Animal Welfare - Motion to Take Note (7 Dec 2017)

Baroness Bakewell of Hardington Mandeville: ...and realistic legislation to bring it under control. I agreed with almost all the contribution of the noble Earl, Lord Shrewsbury. It was extremely valuable. Like the noble Baroness, Lady Miller, I also attended the debate this morning run by the National Trust and the Green Alliance, and can confirm that the issue of water management has to move up the agenda and become much more...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Melanie Onn: ...side of the fisheries industry. However, before I get on to that, I want to mention the case of a former fisherman from my constituency. In the debate last year, I raised the case of James Greene, and the issue of fishermen missing out on their pensions unjustly, with subsequent Governments failing to properly compensate them for that. Sadly, James Greene passed away last year, but his...

Social Care - Statement (7 Dec 2017)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: I thank the noble Baroness for her response and her questions; I will deal with them in order. First, she asked about funding. She is quite right to point out the £2 billion of extra funding that was announced in the March Budget; of course, we have had two Budgets this year, so extra funding was included in a Budget this year. I should also point out that that was the latest tranche of...

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Edwards: ...more prison places will not solve the problem. The prison population tends to expand to fill the places available, often even before the places are built. As the Howard League puts it, “trying to deal with only the supply of prison resources and prison places will not work. We now need to manage demand and, in the process, ask some fundamental questions about who we send to prison...

Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Jackie Doyle-Price: ...the needs of carers. I am very grateful to the 6,500 people who responded to the call for evidence. We have listened to them, and we will consider what they have said in bringing forward the Green Paper. In the meantime, it is very important to pull together exactly what support there is at present and then respond to that, and we will publish our action plan in January. On working-age...

Scottish Parliament: Sea Fisheries and End-year Negotiations (7 Dec 2017)

Fergus Ewing: I am very grateful to members for their support for my efforts and those of the Scottish Government over the next few days to achieve the best possible deal for Scotland. This is a traditional debate and, as some of the older hands have pointed out, traditionally parties unite in wishing the cabinet secretary who has the privilege of discharging that responsibility well. I am grateful for...
