Scottish Parliament: Carbon Neutral Islands (17 May 2022)

Emma Roddick: ...buildings are the highest emitters of CO2 equivalent overall, and both are more of a pressure in the islands. Ferries and planes are a fact of life. They are things that people need to survive, not nice alternative options that people could choose to give up if they wanted, like take-away coffee cups or bottled soap. Many homes are now old and they do not have the fabric to allow for...

Private Rented Sector Housing (15 Mar 2022)

Jim Shannon: I thank the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) for setting the scene so very well. He does so with a knowledge and a determination for the change that each and every one of us wishes to see. I will give a Northern Ireland perspective, which the Minister is not responsible for, but will do so in order to back up the hon. Gentleman and the other speakers. It is always a...

Down Syndrome Bill (4 Feb 2022)

Liam Fox: ...time at what is happening, including parliamentary Committees looking at how the guidance actually works. That is a huge step forward. I think it is actually precedent-setting and turns this from a nice Bill into a cutting-edge and meaningful Bill. That is a huge achievement and one thing for which the Bill will be most remembered.

Alcohol Harm (25 Nov 2021)

Maggie Throup: ...and damage their long-term outcomes. Thanks to the personal testimony and campaigning from Members here today—I will respond further to the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) later in my speech—we have invested £7.2 million on a package of measures, over four years, to improve outcomes and support for children whose parents are alcohol dependent. Some £5.7...

UK Rare Diseases Framework (24 Mar 2021)

Marie Rimmer: ...day of dread. Never mind the joy of a Greggs sausage roll, PKU patients cannot even grab a healthy salad or a vegetarian sandwich. The disease requires an exacting regulation of food intake. I met Liam, a 20-year-old constituent who has PKU. The first thing that struck me was Liam’s mother bringing him bags of special ingredients. Careful planning is essential. Everything is homemade...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Biometrics Commissioner Bill (10 Mar 2020)

Liam McArthur: ...foundations. I also thank the cabinet secretary for the constructive approach that he adopted in relation to the bill. Given how combative our exchanges on policing can get in the chamber, it is nice to have had that experience. The case for establishing a biometrics commissioner to oversee the collection, use, retention and, importantly, deletion of biometrics is well made and widely...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [Lords] (9 Mar 2020)

Liam Byrne: ..., power, depth and stretch of the teams and the facilities that we have in our city for disability sports. Fourthly, let us try to make sure that the legacy of our Commonwealth games is not simply nice new facilities, but lives and a generation that are changed once and for all. Crucially, how do we use the games to bring forward a new generation of leaders? We have had cuts to the youth...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

Adam Tomkins: I agree with Liam McArthur’s comments unreservedly. At the moment, I am just talking about the economic benefits because they have been the focus of so much of the debate, but I have no argument whatsoever with Liam McArthur about the social and cultural benefits that enrich our communities and our society in all the ways that he has described. He is absolutely right, and I do not think...

Women’S Mental Health: Ministry of Justice Spending (3 Oct 2019)

Alex Chalk: ...—I am not quoting but paraphrasing—was that unless every person can get access to justice, the laws made in this place are liable to become a dead letter. He said that the work done in this Parliament would become nugatory and, in a memorable phrase, that “the democratic election of Members of Parliament may become a meaningless charade.” In those powerful remarks, Lord Reed...

Batten Disease (22 Jul 2019)

Marie Rimmer: ...my young constituent Kaycee Bradshaw, look at how we can help to prevent companies such as BioMarin charging extortionate fees for life-changing drugs? Sadly, this company also charges beyond the NICE framework for Kuvan, a vital drug needed by my young constituent Liam, who suffers from PKU. BioMarin made a net-product revenue increase for 2018 of $31.3 million from Brineura and $26.1...

International Trade: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2019)

Liam Fox: As ever, it is nice to know that the hon. Gentleman is consistently wrong. He talks about our investment figures, but investment into the United Kingdom was the third highest of any country in the world, and it was the highest in Europe. At a time when global foreign direct investment fell, it continued to rise in the UK. When it comes to tariffs, one reason the Government introduced the...

NHS: Future UK Trade Deals - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ...to use trade talks to try to push up drug prices outside America. Big pharma spends hundreds of millions worldwide opposing any measures to limit drug prices, and the great success of the NHS’s NICE regime has been a prime target for some time. An outline of negotiating priorities for a US-UK deal issued by the Office of the US Trade Representative included a, “Procedural Fairness...

Health (14 May 2019)

Ivan Lewis: The Secretary of State is right to say that the shadow Secretary of State is, indeed, a nice man, but he is far more than that. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Leicester South (Jonathan Ashworth) for the tremendous work that he and the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) have done on behalf of the children of alcoholics—they are making a tremendous difference. I...

Scottish Parliament: Offshore Wind Week 2018 (20 Nov 2018)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...the debate, and I welcome the speeches from members across the chamber. We cannot always stand in the chamber and say that we are all united in support of a particular issue or technology, so it is nice to be able to welcome speeches from Alexander Burnett and Maurice Golden for once. Today is a great opportunity. Each year, offshore wind week, which is hosted by Scottish Renewables and...

Scottish Parliament: Climate Change (14 Nov 2018)

Ross Greer: I am grateful for the opportunity to take part in the debate, but I absolutely agree with Liam McArthur that an issue of this scale deserves a full afternoon’s debate, with a motion that is voted on. Last month’s IPCC report made it clear that we have about a decade left to manage the climate crisis—not to stop it, but to manage it. Managing means limiting warming to 1.5°; we are...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...their market to us. It is a predatory policy towards a Brexit Britain, designed to take advantage of our need for trade deals. He wants America to sell us more agriculture and cars—and I see that Liam Fox is offering to reduce tariffs on US cars imported here. I am not sure that that will help our automotive industry. Trump is not interested in a deal if we maintain EU standards. He says...

Economies of the UK Islands — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Patricia Gibson: ...and offers towering mountains and luscious rolling landscape that can, in the right light, simply take your breath away. I mention such things not only for the sake of it, because it is such a nice thing to discuss, but because both islands enjoy a huge influx of visitors, especially, although not only, in the high season. The hon. Member for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock mentioned the road...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I hope that perhaps we might get some more concessions like that one. No? I thought it might be one of those nice little things. As noble Lords will see, Amendment 11 has support from across the House. It would basically ensure that there can be no reduction in the laws we are bringing over into domestic law under the Bill without primary legislation. This amendment should, of...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Application of Equality Act (Services and public functions) (22 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...on a mobile phone, but the device that guides them around the warehouse is also a device that tracks how long it takes them to put together a basket. That information is then arranged in a nice league table of employees of who is the fastest and who is slowest, and decisions are then taken about who gets an extension to their contracted hours each week and who does not. That is a pretty...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Manifestly unfounded or excessive requests by the data subject (15 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: We have just agreed a set of amendments that, on the face of it, look nice and reasonable. We can all recognise the sin that the Government are taking aim at, and that the workload of the Information Commissioner’s Office and of others has to be kept under control, so we all want to deter tons of frivolous and meaningless requests. None the less, a lot of us have noticed that, for example,...
