Derby County Football Club (28 Jun 2022)

Pauline Latham: transfer, which no one on either side of this multimillion pound deal had apparently foreseen or planned for. All along, the administrators had assured Team Derby—made up of Members of Parliament, councillors and local stakeholders—that nothing was wrong and that Kirchner’s deal would be completed. Two weeks ago, it was announced via the media, rather than a direct communication...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Liam Byrne: something we share, but it is the reality for too many of the people we represent. We now live in a country where it takes five generations for the heirs of someone born in the lowest income group to rise up and even earn national average wages. That is a complete scandal. Social mobility has broken down in this country, and this Bill should have stepped up to address our ambition. I...

Scottish Parliament: Carbon Neutral Islands (17 May 2022)

Mairi Gougeon: the islands that are included in the carbon neutral islands project, as well as how the project will benefit all other Scottish islands.

The Scottish Government absolutely...

Fairness at Work and Power in Communities (12 May 2022)

Fulton MacGregor: Liam Kerr will be glad to know that the committee has considered those issues in detail and refers to them in the report. If a person buys online, the online retailer will have to comply with the legislation in the same way as a shop. I will come back to the black market, which is where his question is going, in a wee bit. As we heard, there are concerns about how effective the scheme will...
