Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (28 Jun 2022)

Alex Norris: ...Minister for Housing, who was winding up the debate, to confirm that an impact assessment will be published and when that would happen. The Minister responded: “Yes, there will be, and it will come at the second stage of Committee.”—[Official Report, 8 June 2022; Vol. 715, c. 914.] I am not quite sure what “the second stage of Committee” means in that context, but I do know that...

Social Housing and Building Safety (9 Jun 2022)

Hilary Benn: ...ever going to go away. The very least we can do, and the essential first step, is to apologise for the failures. We heard that from the Secretary of State and my hon. Friend the Member for Wigan (Lisa Nandy), who spoke for the Opposition. Looking back, it is incredible that combinations of materials were allowed on the outside of buildings as cladding and were declared safe when no one...

Business of the House (9 Jun 2022)

Mark Spencer: We are looking at it. We will come back in due course on how we deliver and give the House the opportunity to debate and vote on it. The hon. Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire) knows I am sympathetic to the plight of Back Benchers when it comes to written questions, but to use health service and Department of Health and Social Care data from the period of covid—[Interruption.] We...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Stuart Andrew: The hon. Member knows that I cannot comment on individual plans. [Interruption.] The hon. Member for Wigan (Lisa Nandy) would be the first to apply for an urgent question asking me to explain why I prejudged a local plan. What I would say, in general terms, is that it is clear that local authorities can argue the constraints that they may have, and his local authority may be planning to do...

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

Lisa Nandy: ...Bench. As they say, if you wrestle with a pig, you get covered in—stuff. I would be careful, if I were him, about using this place to try to throw mud at us. If only the Secretary of State had come to us and said that he could not do what had been proposed. If only he had just said to us, “Look, the Treasury has blocked it, No. 10 has ditched it, and the Cabinet Office has laughed at...

Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (14 Mar 2022)

Lisa Nandy: ...countries. We could simplify this process today. We could keep essential checks but drop the excessive bureaucracy. He knows it; why has it not been done? For weeks the British people have been coming forward in large numbers to offer help. It has been moving and heartwarming to see the decency and spirit on display in every corner of this country. But what exactly will the Government be...

Local Government Finance (England) (9 Feb 2022)

Lisa Nandy: ...and Hyndburn have all lost under his deal. Blackpool, which the Secretary of State visited last week—and it is a town, by the way, not a city, if he wants to let the Prime Minister know—is down 1.92% in real-terms in funding to its council. Does he not understand what councils are dealing with? We are still in a pandemic, and these are the people who stepped up to run test and trace...

Levelling Up (2 Feb 2022)

Lisa Nandy: ...completely broken, and the Secretary of State has given us more of the same. This was meant to be the Prime Minister’s defining mission of Government. I am not surprised he was too embarrassed to come here today and defend it himself. It is so bad that even the Secretary of State has privately been saying that it is rubbish. They tell us to wait till 2030, but where have they been for...

Backbench Business - Freedom of Religion or Belief: 40th Anniversary of UN DeclarationBackbench Business (25 Nov 2021)

Fabian Hamilton: ...on the edge of some of our faiths should also be allowed space. We heard a very touching contribution from the hon. Member for Airdrie and Shotts (Ms Qaisar): I found it moving and personal, coming from a Muslim woman living in Scotland who is now a Member of Parliament. We also heard from the hon. Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas). He is rightly proud of his local bishop, the Bishop of...

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Lisa Nandy: ...to unravel in just a few days while the world looks away. Like so many of us who have spoken in this debate, they find it impossible to reconcile where we are now, and how it could possibly have come to this. We recognise that the decision by the United States to withdraw its military presence created an impossible situation for the United Kingdom. As the right hon. Member for Maidenhead...

Town Deals: Covid-19 Recovery — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 Jul 2021)

Aaron Bell: ...growing gulf between towns and cities, it is clear that this is no longer sustainable.” Those are brilliant words. They are the words of the shadow Foreign Secretary, the hon. Member for Wigan (Lisa Nandy), who represents another northern town, when she launched the Centre For Towns back in December 2017. Actually, it was the Conservative party and Government who took that agenda, ran...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Topical Questions (15 Jun 2021)

Lisa Nandy: While I welcome that, if we want to carry a broader group of like-minded countries with us we need to lead by example. Does the Secretary of State regret whipping his MPs to support preferential trade deals with countries that commit genocide? Can he tell us why, last week, his Government turned down almost every single recommendation made by the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy...

Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions (26 Apr 2021)

Lisa Nandy: We warmly welcome today’s announcement. We agree that corruption is a global scourge. It costs the global economy billions every year, it sustains rotten Governments, it protects the dishonest and the criminal, it tilts the playing field against businesses that do the right thing and it denies people around the world money that belongs to them and that should be spent on our shared...

Human Rights Update (22 Mar 2021)

Lisa Nandy: There is no question but that this is a welcome step, and I welcome the moves by the EU today and other partners. I am sure the whole House will stand in solidarity with our fellow European parliamentarians who have been sanctioned by the Chinese Government in response. This is an unacceptable attack on democratic lawmakers simply for highlighting the horrific evidence from Xinjiang. However,...

Yemen (8 Feb 2021)

Lisa Nandy: We are not a bystander to this conflict—UK arms, training and technical support sustains the war in Yemen and the worst humanitarian disaster in the world. More than 80% of Saudi’s arms imports come from the US and the UK. The US’s decision to end all support for offensive operations, including relevant arms sales, is welcome, but it leaves the UK dangerously out of step with our...

Covid Security at UK Borders (1 Feb 2021)

Jo Churchill: ...quite staggering. As of today, over 9.2 million people have now received the jab, and every elderly care home resident in England has been offered the vaccine. The roll-out will accelerate in the coming months, and with the combined news that the UK today has secured another 40 million extra doses of the Valneva vaccine, in addition to the 60 million we already had on order—taking our...

Nigeria: Sanctions Regime — [James Gray in the Chair] (23 Nov 2020)

Stephen Doughty: ...in Nigeria and about wider human rights abuses around the world. This is not a country that will turn a blind eye when such atrocities happen. The scenes we have witnessed and the reports that have come out of Nigeria of the response by the police and the army against protesters in the #EndSARS movement have shocked us all. We have heard from colleagues about the events of 20 October,...

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (2 Sep 2020)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the Foreign Secretary for that, but the truth is that this is a complete mess. It has made a nonsense of his own review—the integrated Department has come before the integrated strategy. Thousands of staff with world-renowned expertise have been treated disgracefully, holding meetings in recent weeks with senior civil servants who cannot even answer basic questions about how this...

Speaker’s Statement: Hong Kong National Security Legislation: UK Response (2 Jun 2020)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the Foreign Secretary for coming to the House to make this statement and for advance sight of it. In particular, I thank him for the sentiment of solidarity that he expressed at the end of his statement. We are deeply concerned about events in Hong Kong. We share the Government’s opposition to the national security law. We want to see real action to address police brutality and the...

Message to attend the Lords Commissioners: Election of Speaker (17 Dec 2019)

Lisa Nandy: ...for a mug of Yorkshire tea—[Interruption]—and, of course, a Hobnob. A few years ago I was told the story of when Lindsay arrived unannounced, as he often does, in another MP’s office. He sat down and said, “Right, put the kettle on then.” “Yorkshire tea?” said the MP. “Absolutely,” said Lindsay, with enthusiasm, adding, “There are only two good things about Yorkshire:...
