Scottish Parliament: COP27 Outcomes (6 Dec 2022)

Maurice Golden: This is a welcome opportunity for Parliament to discuss climate change, which in my opinion, it does not do nearly enough. I begin by highlighting some of the important contributions that we have heard this afternoon. There is consensus about tackling climate change more quickly. The cabinet secretary highlighted that this is a global challenge that we need to work on with a shared sense of...

Scottish Parliament: “Keeping the Doors Open” (Age Scotland) (1 Dec 2022)

Liam McArthur: As Christina McKelvie will be aware, Age Scotland’s report reveals the extent of the Covid-related pressures facing our older people’s groups across Scotland. The need to plug gaps in statutory services has dramatically increased the demand for assistance from those groups. In Orkney, dementia diagnoses are not being made and NHS Orkney has withdrawn from podiatry, placing huge pressure...

Autumn Statement 2022 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2022)

Lord Fox: ...and obviously my first chance to welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Lea, to her position on the Conservative Benches. I draw attention to the fact that I am on the executive of both the All-Party Parliamentary Motor Group and the Chemical Industry All-Party Parliamentary Group. For this debate to be so long after the Statement has given time for perspective to develop—that is perhaps...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 64 - Disclosure of information in the public interest likely to be relevant to the investigation of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: The truth is that people will be appalled by this debate. We gathered an enormous number of campaign groups and journalists together in the House on Tuesday evening, at a function that I had the privilege to co-sponsor with the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden. The kinetic energy behind reform is significant. The law will change—we will get there—but the question is whether...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Liam Fox: ...harming developing countries at the present time. Also, the central banks—not just the Bank of England but the Federal Reserve in the United States and the European Central Bank—got into a group-think on what they laughingly call the modern monetarists, which means that they are not monetarists at all. They believed that they had found some sort of monetary alchemy through which they...

War in Ukraine: Illicit Finance — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (17 Nov 2022)

Bob Seely: financially destroy them. That has sadly happened to a number of people, including Charlotte Leslie, a former colleague of ours, and the wonderful journalist Catherine Belton. Various campaign groups have also been targeted. Most recently, Chatham House has been a target. Sadly, I understand it has given in to threats and is having to rewrite some of its reports. This business model was...

Scottish Parliament: Chronic Pain Services (16 Nov 2022)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...on staffing and a great lack of detail on investment. The Government says that it has collaborated with people who have chronic pain conditions in developing the plan. However, members of the Parliament’s cross-party group on chronic pain have a different story to tell—we have heard about that already. They say that there has been no proper partnership: 10 patients who were elected to...

Ukraine (14 Nov 2022)

Stephen Doughty: ...days in Kherson and the need for the UK to have a long-term plan for as long as is needed. Indeed, that was reflected in the remarks of my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne), who rightly said that we must shut down the siren narratives from what he gently called the Putin whisperers—whether that is in the UK or, indeed, among our other allies—and,...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 88 - Analysis of information for the purposes of crime prevention or detection (8 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: On a point of order, Ms Elliott. Can you clarify the order of consideration for the amendments and new clauses in this group?

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witness (25 Oct 2022)

Liam Byrne: Q We have just heard some very powerful evidence about the relationship between organised crime groups operating in this sphere of crime, and state threats. Have you any other observations about the relationship between economic crime and national security threats as we face them today? Is that a serious problem that we need to be worried about?

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (25 Oct 2022)

Liam Byrne: Q What is the criminal structure in this market? Is it teenage hackers in their bedroom or sophisticated organised crime groups?

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witness (25 Oct 2022)

Liam Byrne: Q The second problem that is often described by banks to me is that they have to spread their compliance resource very thinly across a large customer base, rather than focusing it on a smaller group where they suspect there is more harm at work. Is that a scenario you recognise, and does this Bill help you focus compliance resource on the potential high-harm customers who we should be...

Scottish Parliament: Cost of Living (Tenant Protection) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (6 Oct 2022)

Liam McArthur: Group 7 is on information to be included in the Scottish landlord register. Amendment 19, in the name of Pauline McNeill, is the only amendment in the group.

Scottish Parliament: Standing Charges (Highlands and Islands) (29 Sep 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...because of the total heat with total control mechanism? Will he agree to engage directly with Di Alexander, who is the chairman of the Highlands and Islands housing associations affordable warmth group, on the representations that can legitimately be made to Ofgem and UK ministers about the inherent unfairness in how those standing charges have been structured?

Scottish Parliament: Education and Skills (22 Sep 2022)

Liam McArthur: Good afternoon, colleagues. The next item of business is portfolio question time. The portfolio is education and skills. I remind members that questions 1 and 2 are grouped together and that supplementaries on those questions will be taken when they are answered. Any member who wishes to ask a supplementary question should press their request-to-speak button or place an R in the chat function.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Update (19 Jul 2022)

Gillian Keegan: ...’s syndrome in the UK and we know that people with Down’s syndrome often face significant challenges and can struggle to access appropriate services and support. I am grateful to the Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP for bringing forward the Private Members’ Bill which is now the Down Syndrome Act. This important legislation aims to improve access to services and life outcomes for people with...

Economic Crime: Law Enforcement (7 Jul 2022)

Jess Phillips: ...the agency’s ability are not about to get any better. Both the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton and my right hon. Friend compelled us to take seriously the recommendations of both all-party groups, and the Opposition absolutely will. The hon. Member for Cheadle (Mary Robinson) spoke about the importance of whistleblowers. I totally agree with that, especially when we hear about...

Strategy for International Development (6 Jul 2022)

Harriett Baldwin: ...for Rotherham (Sarah Champion), the Chair of the International Development Committee, on securing this important debate. It is an honour to follow the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne). He discussed a lot of wise history and important points, and I hope we will hear an answer on them when the Minister gets to the Dispatch Box. I wish to commend her and say how...

Scottish Parliament: Fireworks and Pyrotechnic Articles (Scotland) Bill (29 Jun 2022)

Willie Rennie: I thank the Criminal Justice Committee, the clerks and all those who gave evidence for their work on the bill. In 2019, my colleague Liam McArthur called for powers to allow councils to make decisions around the use of fireworks and how they affect the local community. I am glad to say that we find elements of that in the bill. It has been clear for a long time that something needs to be done...

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...
