Sanctions (1 Mar 2022)

Liam Byrne: ...are that much smaller. Fifthly, we need policy infrastructure such as a register of beneficial ownership of property and a proper targeting system based on our financial information. There is a group of urgently overdue laws that must be introduced over the next couple of months. We need a foreign agents registration Act, an update to GDPR legislation so that abusive data subject access...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Climate Assembly (1 Mar 2022)

Michael Matheson: ...2025 is not feasible, because of technological limitations. We have sought to meet the challenges that assembly members set to stretch us as much as possible within what is feasible. I am sure that Liam Kerr recognises that the expert group, which assessed our response, commended the Scottish Government’s approach in responding to many of the points that were set out in the assembly’s...

Scottish Parliament: Workplace Parking Licensing Schemes (23 Feb 2022)

Graham Simpson: ...Slater as Fred and Wilma. The tax will hit workers. We have seen that in Nottingham, where more than half of affected employers pass on the cost to their staff. However, when we tried to exempt groups including the police, the fire brigade, ambulance staff, teachers, shift workers and people who live or work nowhere near public transport, the SNP and the Greens blocked that. Yesterday, Ms...

Sanctions (22 Feb 2022)

Kevan Jones: ...Russia. In fact, I would say the Russian people are the victims of Vladimir Putin and his regime. We have to understand that over the past 10 to 15 years this individual has been in control with a group of kleptocrats around him. If we are to get him to wake up and listen, we have to attack those individuals. The hon. Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Layla Moran) named some of those...

Scottish Parliament: Justice Services (8 Feb 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...Let me set out some ways in which the Scottish Government might actually turn a vision into practice in our justice system. Latest figures show that incarceration rates are up across almost all age groups and crime categories. That means that crimes are more likely, people are less safe and our prisons are operating what is ostensibly a revolving-door policy. In 2020, a throughcare service...

Down Syndrome Bill (4 Feb 2022)

Liam Fox: ...and individuality and to make the choices for their own lives that we all take for granted. I want to thank the many people who have made today possible. I thank the National Down Syndrome Policy Group, and all the other voices in the Down syndrome community, including the carers and families whose input has been invaluable. I thank the officials at the Department of Health and Social...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 203 (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...going to keep my remarks brief. Contrary to what the noble Baroness, Lady Campbell, said, this has got nothing to do with the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher. The reason that they are grouped together is because I asked for them to be grouped together; otherwise, it would have come up on a Friday when I could not be here. There is no common link in the terms of these being...

Public Bill Committee: Down Syndrome Bill: Clause 1 - Guidance on meeting the needs of persons with Down Syndrome (26 Jan 2022)

Liam Fox: ...on Second Reading—for the first time, many of those with Down syndrome will outlive their parents—bring an element of the importance of care into the equation. Rather than singling out a single grouping, we have shown the increasingly complex needs that a range of different conditions will require, as medical science improves and we have greater life expectancy, which is something we...

Public Bill Committee: Down Syndrome Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Julie Elliott: The selection and grouping of amendments for today’s meeting is available online and in the room. I have selected the three amendments in the name of the Member in charge of the Bill, Dr Liam Fox. The amendments will be considered alongside the existing content of the Bill in a single debate.

Lawfare and UK Court System (20 Jan 2022)

James Cartlidge: I begin by congratulating my right hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis) and the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) on securing this important debate, and the Backbench Business Committee on raising the profile of this important subject. I will make two points about the sub judice ruling. First, as the Minister for the courts in the Ministry of...

Scottish Parliament: Constitution, External Affairs and Culture (20 Jan 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...and the wider campus. The next item of business is portfolio questions, and this time the portfolio is constitution, external affairs and culture. I remind members that questions 3 and 6 are grouped and that I will take any supplementaries on those questions after both have been answered. If a member wishes to ask a supplementary on any other question, they should please press their...

Scottish Parliament: Retrofitting Buildings for Net Zero (18 Jan 2022)

Liam Kerr: ...could help with rural and off-grid Scotland’s transition on the journey to net zero, but I also learned that Patrick Harvie, who is the minister who is responsible for this area, has not met the group at all since being appointed, and neither has the cabinet secretary. The point that I am making is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to any of this, be it on energy generation or...

Scottish Parliament: Holistic Family Support (13 Jan 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...course of the current parliamentary session, and notes the calls for an urgent action plan to outline how the Whole Family Wellbeing Fund will be invested to implement the Family Support Delivery Group blueprint and route map, thereby making the right to whole family holistic support a practical and accessible reality for families, which would be consistently available across the country,...

Building Safety - Statement (11 Jan 2022)

Lord Greenhalgh: ...for ever more, I was described as Dame Shirley Porter in drag by some of my political opponents, but Jack was a phenomenal political figure. He was not just a trade unionist and distinguished parliamentarian who campaigned for good-quality housing, he was an extremely effective politician. It was because he noticed me and because of his comments that I suddenly became the 71st most...

Scottish Parliament: Water Environment (22 Dec 2021)

Liam Kerr: Will the minister outline what funding and support is available to landowners, land managers and groups to tackle invasive non-native species on our river banks? How will her plans ensure that, in the drive to plant trees, we do not see the inappropriate and damaging plantations close to rivers that we saw in the 1950s and 1960s?

Scottish Parliament: Economy (North-east Scotland) (15 Dec 2021)

Liam Kerr:—announcing plans for a hydrogen town; and SGN is envisaging a pathway to 100 per cent hydrogen for Scotland’s gas networks, on which it has worked with oil and gas stalwart the Wood Group. The conclusion is clear: we must “get real” about continuing demand, and how irresponsible and short-sighted it would be to satisfy that demand through imports. We must “get real” about...

Scottish Parliament: Deposit Return Scheme (14 Dec 2021)

Liam McArthur: ...from November next year. Can she confirm whether that scheme will cover all the islands or just Orkney Mainland? Is she confident that all the outstanding questions that businesses and community groups in my constituency still have will have been answered well before then?

Scottish Parliament: Gender-based Violence (30 Nov 2021)

Liam McArthur: ...Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill, I accepted the case that Scottish Women’s Aid and Rape Crisis Scotland made for addressing the issue through Dame Helena Kennedy’s fast-track working group. I look forward to the group’s report and hope that the Parliament can act with urgency in due course. The Scottish Liberal Democrats will support Pauline McNeill’s amendment and Jamie...

Portishead Railway (26 Nov 2021)

Liam Fox: for the expansion of the railway network. When I requested further information from Ministers, I was informed that there was a fear that a judicial review might be granted to environmental groups opposed to the reopening of the line. I will return to that point later on. On 10 November 2021, North Somerset received initial feedback requesting further information on carbon budgets....

Down Syndrome Bill (26 Nov 2021)

Liam Fox: quite a roll of honour. I also thank the organisations that have supported us, in particular Edel Harris, the chief executive of Mencap, Ken and Rachael Ross of the National Down Syndrome Policy Group and Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association, Sue Dennis and Joanna Thorn of Up and Downs Southwest and others including Positive About Down Syndrome, PSDS and Annabel Tall, my constituency...
