Immigration Detention: Shaw Review - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Hamwee: ...part of the strategic plan for detention, which was the first recommendation in Mr Shaw’s first report. I will end on a gentler note: I wish all colleagues a happy holiday, however long or short that may be.

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for the White Paper. Perhaps I may clarify two points with him. In preparing for yesterday’s debate on the other White Paper, I had the distinct impression from the food industry, which is quite dependent on third-country citizens, particularly current EU citizens, that it is not entirely clear that its long-term status has been secured. Can my noble...

Standards (24 Jul 2018)

Kevin Barron: ...firmly established how much the two earlier visits in 2013 cost, but Mr Paisley, who initially argued for a cost in the area of £20,000, now accepts a figure of £50,000. In our view and that of the commissioner, it may have been much higher. The point is that the cost massively exceeded the threshold for registration, but Mr Paisley did not register either visit. Mr Paisley...

Civil Aviation (Accessibility) (24 Jul 2018)

Helen Whately: ...having pre-booked one. If that is how difficult it is just to arrive at the airport, imagine what the rest of the journey is like. Once the person gets to the airport, staff at the check-in desk may not be trained to recognise their disability and might not know how to help them, especially if it is a hidden disability such as autism or dementia. If the person is deaf, they will...

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review: Points of Order (24 Jul 2018)

Lindsay Hoyle: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving me notice that he wished to raise this matter. It may be helpful if I first make it clear that the House’s sub judice resolution is not an externally-imposed rule, but a self-denying ordinance by which the House has agreed to limit its freedom of speech by avoiding references in debate to cases that are active before the UK courts. Certain...

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review (24 Jul 2018)

Diane Abbott: I am grateful to the Home Secretary for giving me prior sight of his statement. In a way, it is telling that we are having this statement as the last one of this parliamentary Session. Some may be concerned it will not get the attention it deserves, but, in a way, that is symptomatic. Immigration detention and the conditions in immigration detention have always existed in the shadows, without...

Higher Education and Research Act 2017 (Cooperation and Information Sharing) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (24 Jul 2018)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...noble Lord, Lord Watson, in turn, starting with his question about the consultation with UCAS and universities, and, in particular, students’ concerns regarding access to their data. As the noble Lord may know, officials and Ministers have regular meetings and interactions with universities, and they work closely with UCAS. On student concerns regarding access to their data, I...

Higher Education (Fee Limits and Fee Limit Condition) (England) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2018)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: and come out feeling that they have had a good experience and have a good degree. The review is being informed by independent advice. I must stress the independence of this review, so I may not be able to answer some of the questions directly because the review is independent. It is chaired by Philip Augur and one of our colleagues, the noble Baroness, Lady Wolf, is on the...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

John Bercow: ...of Members are seeking to catch my eye. I would like to accommodate as many as I can, but I remind the House that there is a further ministerial statement to follow, another piece of business that may be short but is uncertain in length, and then a very heavily subscribed summer Adjournment debate. There is therefore a premium on brevity, now to be brilliantly exemplified by Mr Steve Baker.

Higher Education (Transparency Condition and Financial Support) (England) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Adonis: the procedure. My noble friend has tabled a Motion to Regret on one of the sets of regulations even though the Minister introduced all of the regulations in his opening remarks. Perhaps I may make a few remarks now on the first of these sets of regulations concerned with transparency before we come on to the data sharing issues in a moment. No one could have anything against these...

Syria (24 Jul 2018)

Tom Brake: May I press the Minister about Idlib? What specific initiatives are the UK Government involved with now to try to ensure that, even if Idlib is not a safe zone, at least some protection is provided to civilians there, given we know they will soon be subject to a final assault that will involve barrel bombs or, worse, chemical weapons?

Immigration (Provision of Physical Data) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Paddick: ...noble Lord, Lord Rosser, about whether this is a pilot as my understanding is that there will be a period of three years from now for EU citizens to register and overcome any of the problems that may arise during the pilot scheme, so I am slightly more relaxed on that front. Can the Minister confirm that the continued operation of these regulations will be subject to satisfactory...

Public Sector Pay (24 Jul 2018)

John Bercow: Order. I think the hon. Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown) is the author of a newly published book entitled “Summer Rage”, but if I may say so, the launch party can wait until after today.

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill - Second Reading (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Pinnock: that they would be exempt? I think it would be very helpful if the onus were on the valuation office to notify the businesses. Then, there is the impact on the income of local government. No doubt this may be small in totality, but there may be a significant financial impact on some rural district councils, which may have several businesses falling into this definition of nursery...

Rendition of UK Citizens - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...exists for use in UK investigations and court cases. We will ensure that any future international agreement is consistent with our long-standing policy of opposing the death penalty. Perhaps I may also comment on the change of approach. We have not changed our approach. I refer noble Lords to the Overseas Security and Justice Assistance Guidance, which incidentally is long-standing. Part...

Standing Orders (Public Business) - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2018)

Lord McFall of Alcluith: ...Standing Orders, and today’s Motion simply makes those necessary changes. I am aware that concern has been expressed to me, on and before 11 July, about the possible negative instruments which may be laid during the Recess. I refer noble Lords to the withdrawal Act, which makes it clear in specifying the scrutiny period that that means 10 sitting days from the first day back. I...

Broadband: Full-fibre Coverage - Private Notice Question (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...rural area, water was not laid on to houses until relatively recently. I think most people today think that running water in your home is a requirement. I take my noble friend’s point. He may not want superfast, let alone ultrafast broadband, but more and more people do, and it is important for the economy. More people need it, so, gradually—as we said, by 2033—it will be...

Preston Park Train Services (24 Jul 2018)

Jo Johnson: ...been well served by recent developments on the railways, and the Government are working hard to ensure that we see improvement for them, as a result of not just the timetable change introduced on 20 May but the interim timetable introduced on 15 July. Although there is still a considerable way to go, I hope that her constituents in Preston Park will have begun to see positive changes in...

Domestic Abuse: Universal Credit Payments - Question (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Buscombe: to victims of domestic abuse who request them. More broadly, the Government are currently considering stakeholder responses to the consultation on domestic abuse that closed on 31 May and will publish a response and a draft Bill later this Session.

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: May I briefly ask whether the British economy was growing when Labour left office?
