BBC News Impartiality: Government's Role — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] (27 Feb 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: We often find the left screaming that the BBC is a Tory mouthpiece and the right screaming that the BBC is a left-wing mouthpiece—that is political opinion, and it probably means that it has got it roughly right. But there are indisputable facts that are black and white, as with the bombing of the hospital and the failure to verify sources. That is where the BBC is taking a wrong turn. That...

NHS Property Services (23 Feb 2024)

Richard Foord: ...hand back part of Seaton Community Hospital to NHS Property Services, from which NHS Devon had been renting the building. I had little idea why NHS Property Services was the nominal owner of a full wing at Seaton Hospital. That is in spite of the fact that the wing was funded entirely through donations raised by the local community before the hospital was built and opened in 1988. NHS...

Independent School Fees: VAT (21 Feb 2024)

Nigel Huddleston: ...flip-flopping on this policy—I do not believe for one minute that it is wholeheartedly supported by Opposition Members. It is just virtue signalling of the highest order. It is complete left-wing populist virtue signalling by the Opposition, but the British public see straight through it. This Government understand the vital role that education plays in all our lives. Just this year,...

Ceasefire in Gaza (21 Feb 2024)

Layla Moran: ...people perishing in their tens of thousands on the ground, and to those hostage families that, fundamentally, we need this to stop now? I do not care what we call it. I should have started by drawing the House’s attention to my entry in the register of interests. I sit as an unpaid adviser on the board of the International Centre for Justice for Palestinians. Last week I went to Israel...

8. Statement by the Deputy Minister for Social Partnership: HeartUnions Week (20 Feb 2024)

Rhianon Passmore: ...life. I was particularly struck with your statement when you referenced the unions in the world of work project in secondary schools across Wales. For too long, the political agenda of the right-wing media and the right-wing UK Tory Government have sought to demonise trade unions and the trade union movement, and this was exemplified by the recent BBC Two programme documentary on the...

Public Bill Committee: Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Meaning of the “CPTPP” (20 Feb 2024)

Gareth Thomas: ...scrutiny processes available for the discussion of trade treaties. He will be aware of the concerns raised by a series of organisations—from trade unions all the way through to the slightly less left-wing, one would suggest, noble Lord Frost—about the lack of scrutiny for trade treaties, notably CPTPP. It would be good to hear how the Minister thinks scrutiny of the impact of CPTPP...

Written Answers — Home Office: Radicalism (15 Feb 2024)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...), under what circumstances (1) a human rights, social justice, or environmental activist, and (2) an individual expressing socialist views, crosses the threshold for Prevent referrals as ‘left wing extremist’; and whether such an individual needs to be planning, involved in or threatening acts of violence in order to be so considered.

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...changing behaviour; it can be really important. I must admit that the noble Lord, Lord Moore, sort of made me jump a bit, because Section 28 was clearly legislation in reaction to, as he put it, left-wing councils and something that was not happening, as he admitted. That legislation did not change things in schools in the way that perhaps those who moved it understood. What it did do was...

Workers (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Balfe: My Lords, I too begin by thanking my noble friend Lord Bridges for the report. It is an incisive report and is good at defining problems, but we are still left looking for the solutions. I also welcome back my friend the noble Lord, Lord Skidelsky. I applaud his contribution and am very pleased that he is now back with us in this House. As I said, this report is a good definition of the...

Knife and Sword Ban ( 6 Feb 2024)

Louie French: ...comes to crime and transport, the Great British public should look very closely at the sorry state of our capital city to see the big bright red warning sign highlighting what to expect if another left-wing, human rights London lawyer were ever in charge of our United Kingdom. As the Leader of the Opposition has said himself, London highlights what Labour can do in power. With taxes up...

Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Feb 2024)

Lord Reid of Cardowan: ...to learn the lessons, we should not confine it mentally to one nation, one area and one epoch, and recognise that even today it is ubiquitous. It is there: we see it in the politics of rabid right-wing nationalism, which will turn on the Jews because they are not of this country, and of the rabid left wing, which equates monopoly capitalism with the Jewish financiers. We have seen how...

Homelessness: Veterans - Question (31 Jan 2024)

Lord Robathan: ...homeless, especially veterans. As a veteran myself, I can say that. When I was the Minister responsible for veterans in the Ministry of Defence, which was immediately after the Labour Government left office, there was a lot of talk about veteran homelessness then. I went to see Veterans Aid, an excellent organisation that operates out of London. The man in charge of it, an ex-RAF wing...

Scottish Parliament: UK Covid-19 Inquiry (31 Jan 2024)

Jamie Greene: ...a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” That is exactly what we did in March 2020. The events that ensued led to the loss of more than 18,000 of our fellow Scots and have left physical and mental scars on anyone who survived them. It is against that backdrop that I make my comments. Back then, in this very chamber, I uttered the following words: “I believe that...

Media Bill: New Clause 3 - Consultation on section 50 (30 Jan 2024)

Hywel Williams: ...there could be “much tension and unpleasantness in Wales later in the year, if he persisted in this intention, and there would be a danger that Plaid Cymru would fall into the hands of extreme left wing leaders”, mentioning no names. However, later on in the Cabinet papers, the Secretary of State for Wales said that it had been made clear in the press that the change been made in...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Jan 2024)

Viscount Hailsham: ...by international law”. International law is very broadly defined: see Clause 1(6). That provision is right in strict law, but its sole purpose in the Bill is to provide comfort for the Braverman wing of the Conservative Party and it is a proposition that we should voice with very great caution. Clause 5 enables a Minister, at his or her discretion, to determine whether or not to be...

Inheritance Tax — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] (17 Jan 2024)

Jon Trickett: ...imagine, because a person is allowed half a million pounds with no inheritance tax on the house value. With a couple, however—whether they are married or in a civil partnership—the partner left behind after the other has died inherits the house with no tax; we all know that. When the second person in the marriage or civil partnership dies, the first person’s £500,000 is accumulated...

Online Filter Bubbles: Misinformation and Disinformation — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (16 Jan 2024)

Justin Madders: ...conspiracy theory. That fear was absolutely real, and there was no dissuading them. How widespread is the problem? Some academic research says that about 2% of the population are in an alt-left echo chamber, and 5% in an alt-right one. Another survey found that about 10% of those in the UK claim to see only social media that agrees with their particular views. That seems quite low, but it...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Targets: Businesses (16 Jan 2024)

Graham Stuart: ..., which has a sort of comic element given Labour’s monumental failure to deliver renewables when it was in power, coupled with the fact that it wants to bring forward GB Energy. That, as his left-wing colleague, the hon. Member for Cynon Valley (Beth Winter) just said, would be public investment. It would drive out private investment and destroy the transformation of the UK energy...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: Schedule 2 - Offences relating to intimate photographs or films and voyeurism (11 Jan 2024)

Mark Garnier: ...might be embarrassing images. We are in a room full of politicians who are about to go into a general election. Deepfake images of prominent politicians at rallies, for example—such as a leading left-wing politician being seen at a far-right rally in a deepfake—would be just as damaging to people in public positions, without necessarily being intimate. Does the hon. Member feel that...
