Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: Windrush Generation (10 Oct 2018)

Caroline Nokes: ...for Windrush has subsequently experienced immigration enforcement action as a result of coming forward. We are very clear that information to taskforce will not be passed for enforcement. As at 17 May 2018, 7 individuals who have contacted the Windrush Taskforce, have also been identified as being wanted in connection to an on-going criminal investigation and have been referred to the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Police Stations: Closures (10 Oct 2018)

Nick Hurd: I refer the Hon member to the UIN 141753 given on the 10 May 2018. The Home Office does not collect information on police station closures. It is for democratically elected Police and Crime Commissioners, working with Chief Constables, to determine the best use of resources to effectively serve and engage their communities and to build their trust and confidence.

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Policy (10 Oct 2018)

Greg Clark: .... This is the second NCA to be signed with a priority third country in preparation for the UK’s withdrawal from Euratom, following the new bilateral agreement with the United States signed on 4th May. The Government has completed its consultation on the draft Nuclear Safeguards Regulations which set out the detail of a new domestic civil nuclear safeguards regime. We are analysing...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...or instigation” of an act that threatens the national security or economic well-being of the UK or is a serious crime, “carried out for, or on behalf of, a State other the United Kingdom, or … otherwise in the interests of a State other than the United Kingdom”. That may seem broad, but I am afraid that the threat posed to the UK from hostile state activity is...

Business Rates: Small Retail Businesses (9 Oct 2018)

Mel Stride: Madam Deputy Speaker, may I say what a pleasure it is to see you in the Chair after the recess? It is also a pleasure to realise that I have an hour and 16 minutes in which to address my response to my hon. Friend the Member for The Cotswolds (Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown), but I may cut it down just a little bit to please the House. I thank my hon. Friend for bringing this important debate to...

Baby Loss Awareness Week (9 Oct 2018)

Stephen Barclay: May I join colleagues across the House in paying tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) for securing this debate on baby loss awareness week? It is particularly appropriate, as today marks the start of the 2018 campaign. How we reduce the numbers of baby losses is an issue that unites the House, as has been very much reflected in the tenor of this...

Modern-day Slavery (9 Oct 2018)

Stuart McDonald: ...The first issue raised was support for victims. There have been calls to put support on a statutory footing, as has happened in equivalent legislation in Northern Ireland and Scotland. The Government here may now want to do that. We have also talked about extending of the period for which support is in place to 45 days. After consultation with victims and NGOs in Scotland, the Government...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...that this is the Conservative and Unionist Party, which by its rigidity in dealing with the Irish problem over 100 years ago contributed to the division of Ireland. It seems to me that now its rigidity may well risk losing not only Northern Ireland but also potentially Scotland. I wonder whether the Government have considered taking more seriously Boris Johnson’s proposal to build a...

Overseas Development Aid - Statement (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Sheehan: the $2.5 trillion needed to achieve the SDGs. Like the noble Lord, Lord Collins, I agree wholeheartedly with that. However, the fact is that unless profits from DFIs and any other development funds that may in future be raised in the City of London are powered back into developing countries we will lose the advantage of any leverage gained, as well as the opportunity to power back...

Cost of School Uniforms — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Nick Gibb: ...uniform and PE kit. As was expressed in the debate, it is important that we are not complacent. While school uniform can have a hugely positive impact on a school in terms of providing cohesion and community, it may present—as we have heard—a financial burden on some, particularly lower-income families. In the same survey on the cost of school uniform, nearly one-fifth of...

Food Labelling - Statement (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: be individually labelled with allergen and ingredient information, and will he ensure that such information is meaningful? It is not enough to have a default warning placed on all products, such as the unhelpful “may contain nuts” warning, which appears to be more about protecting businesses from liability than assisting the consumer to make an informed assessment of whether...

Business Banking Fraud — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Bob Stewart: ...was placed under the watch of that wonderful organisation called the Global Restructuring Group. The situation then grew rapidly worse: suddenly, in April 2009, the bank appointed administrators, who appeared to investigate the business. On 28 May 2009, NatWest formally cancelled Dean D’Eye’s overdraft. Considering the size of the businesses, that overdraft was pretty small,...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)

Keir Starmer: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. It is always good to see him in his place, but may I politely point out that it would have been much better if this statement had come from the Prime Minister? It is no good hiding behind the badging of the Salzburg summit as informal. It was the Prime Minister who pushed for Brexit to be on the agenda at Salzburg; it was the...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: Article 10. I turn to legal professional privilege. Paragraph 26 of Schedule 3 mirrors Schedule 7 to the 2000 Act. Under paragraph 23(1) of Schedule 3, there is the right to consult a lawyer “privately … at any time”, but paragraph 26(1) states: “A direction under this paragraph may provide that a detainee who wishes to exercise the right under paragraph...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment (9 Oct 2018)

Penny Mordaunt: ...When we make the investment, we do not. We are very happy with that—we have argued for it—and that is what happens now. In future years, however, once we have capitalised those instruments, we may wish to change the way we do it. [Interruption.] It is not double-counting; it is allowing the returns we make on those investments to be used more flexibly. We are very happy and it...

Dangerous Waste and Body Parts Disposal: NHS (9 Oct 2018)

Stephen Barclay: not being stored in a safe manner. [Interruption.] Well, that is the legal remit of the Environment Agency, which is an independent body. It is right that the law is applied; the hon. Gentleman may not like to apply the law, but this is the legal process. Officials from the Department of Health have been to the major trauma sites to see the contingency plans at first hand, and the...

Food Labelling and Allergy-Related Deaths (9 Oct 2018)

David Rutley: .... This morning we received the coroner’s report into Natasha’s death and we will study it very carefully as part of that review. Tomorrow, DEFRA will be holding talks with the devolved Administrations to see what approach they may wish to take, as this is a devolved matter. We take this issue very seriously. I assure Members that we are working at pace to review the current...

Jamal Khashoggi - Private Notice Question (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Goldie: ...establish them, and we are working with Turkey and the United States to try to ascertain them. We need to establish the facts and then determine how we should respond to the situation, whatever it may be.

NHS: Diabetes - Question (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Winston: ...twice as common as is generally recognised in maternity units across the world. Can the Government do something better about screening for diabetes during pregnancy? That is a clear and important point. It may not be cancer but other diseases that follow later on as a result of that in the children.

National Accident Prevention Strategy - Question (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Turnberg: My Lords, may I express a personal interest? Last week I tripped on a raised paving stone, breaking my radius and smashing my face. I am sorry to bring that to your Lordships’ attention, but it struck me that raised paving stones are not uncommon and that people trip every day. Local public services need to get on with repairing the roads.
