I am pleased to present the Coronavirus (Extension...

Humza Yousaf: For the purposes of rule 9.11 of the standing orders, I advise Parliament that Her Majesty, having been informed of the purport of the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill, has consented to place her prerogative and interests, in so far as they are affected by the bill, at the disposal of the Parliament, for the purposes of the bill. I have many thanks to give as I start—probably too...

Trade Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (2 Feb 2021)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, it is Groundhog Day and we are debating the Trade Bill. We have nearly concluded it, I hope, but it is in fact more than four years since we first debated the original trade Bill. I earnestly share my noble friend the Minister’s hope that we will bring it on to the statute book soon. Your Lordships sent two amendments to the other place concerning the parliamentary scrutiny of...

Medicines and Medical Devices Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 17 (14 Jan 2021)

Lord Bethell: My Lords, in moving Amendment 17 I will speak also to Amendments 19, 22, 23, 25, 35, 37, 38, 55, 56 and 58 to 62. All amendments in the group deal with the sharing of information outside the UK where this is required to give effect to an international agreement or arrangement. I have listened to the concerns raised by noble Lords as to further safeguards that could be provided in relation to...

Scottish Parliament: Trade and Co-operation Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union (30 Dec 2020)

Ross Greer: It has been interesting to watch two almost completely unrelated debates take place. Four of the five parties in the Parliament are, to a greater or lesser extent, debating the issue at hand, which is that of whether to grant legislative consent for the enabling legislation surrounding the UK Government’s Brexit deal. However, the Tories are stuck somewhere in 2019, arguing against a...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill (22 Dec 2020)

Michael Russell: For the purposes of rule 9.11 of the standing orders, I advise the Parliament that Her Majesty, having been informed of the purport of the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill, has consented to place her prerogative and interests, in so far as they are affected by the bill, at the disposal of the Parliament for the purposes of the bill. I am pleased to present...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Stephen Farry: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. Regardless of that, I will try to honour what you just said about the length of speeches. I primarily want to speak to amendment 16, in my name and those of others, regarding the removal of the most offensive and dangerous clause in the Bill—clause 45—and I will touch on some other amendments. At the outset, I want to be extremely clear: the vast majority...

Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill [Lords] (2 Sep 2020)

Joanna Cherry: I was about to do so, Mr Deputy Speaker, but I think it is important for the record that we restate the view, and make it crystal clear—as my constituents, and those who elected my fellow SNP Members, would wish us to do—that we are agreeing to the Bill only because we see it as inevitable to protect constituents and businesses in Scotland; but that we do not agree to the fact of Brexit,...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (23 Jun 2020)

Greg Hands: I welcome the opportunity to discuss the important issues raised in the amendments, which I think are fundamentally on different topics from those that we have dealt with for much of today. There is significant common ground between the Government and the Opposition parties. I welcome the hon. Member for Dundee East to the debate, for his first contribution today. It was noticeable that he...

Ministerial Code - Question for Short Debate (12 Mar 2020)

Lord Tyler: .... The central question must be: is the code no longer fit for purpose, or is the current problem caused by its neglect by the present Administration? I can best illustrate this dilemma by reference to the latest challenge. The code specifies that “the Prime Minister … is the ultimate judge of the standards of behaviour expected of a Minister and the appropriate consequences of a breach...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (5 Feb 2019)

Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford: My Lords, it is a great honour to speak to the Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill, on behalf of the Government, as my maiden speech—as my noble friend the Leader of the House put it so encouragingly when we first met, “straight in at the deep end”. Before addressing the Bill in earnest, however, I hope your Lordships will indulge me as I record my profound thanks to noble...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Third Reading (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: My Lords, I have it in command from Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to acquaint the House that they, having been informed of the purport of the Data Protection Bill, have consented to place their prerogatives and interests, so far as they are affected by the Bill, at the disposal of Parliament for the purposes of the Bill.

Scottish Parliament: Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (20 Dec 2017)

Roseanna Cunningham: I am pleased to open this brief debate. At the outset, I thank all stakeholders who provided evidence and the committee members involved for their detailed and constructive consideration of the issues raised. First, I deal with a very formal matter. I advise the Parliament, for the purposes of rule 9.11 of the standing orders, that Her Majesty, having been informed of the purport of the Wild...

Article 50 (Constitution Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2016)

Lord Bridges of Headley: I think I did answer that point. I am sorry to say that some comments in the media can at times be sensationalist, but at the same time, we obviously want to respect the freedom of the press. Above all, in this case, I concur with the thrust of the noble Lord’s point: we absolutely must respect the rulings of the Supreme Court in this case and the independence of the judiciary. Respecting...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Mark Durkan: When we debated the Bill that is now the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016, Brexit was not listed as a mind-altering substance, but it clearly is, given that it has completely transformed the view and changed the character of the Secretary of State and many of his colleagues in relation to the primacy of Parliament and his disdain for, or concern about, the use of the royal prerogative. Today...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Helen Hayes: I am pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this debate on the Neighbourhood Planning Bill, and it is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Mrs Villiers). I am a supporter of neighbourhood planning. Before entering this place, I spent my working life as a town planner seeking to involve and engage communities in planning policymaking. I know the benefits...

Armed Forces Deployment (Royal Prerogative) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jul 2016)

Lord Touhig: My Lords, I have lost count of the number of times we in this House have considered matters relating to the unwritten constitution during the short time of six years that I have served here. As someone who believes that constitutional affairs, no matter how important, are a major turn-off for the British public and an electoral cul-de-sac for politicians, why do I think this particular piece...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, whom it is a pleasure to follow, is an orator. She has spoken eloquently on the question of the NHS. I am but a dry, superannuated lawyer. I shall leave the merits of this debate behind, although I should perhaps begin by saying that I favoured and voted for remain. Indeed, as I had suggested in a letter to the Times, whatever might be thought to...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness the Leader of the House for the time set aside today and tomorrow to allow noble Lords to discuss the very profound outcome of the European Union referendum. As I expressed during our exchanges last week, I was devastated by the result of the referendum. Along with many of my noble friends and many Liberal Democrats, I have a profound and deep-rooted...

Armed Forces Bill - Report (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, the issue raised by Amendments 1 and 2 is whether a serving member of the Armed Forces is a citizen in uniform and entitled to the same protection of his rights and freedoms as any other citizen, or indeed as a member of any other disciplined service, such as the police, or whether, as a matter of policy, he and his family should, if they come with the character of persons subject...
