Health and Care Bill: New Clause 36 - Offence of virginity testing: England and Wales (23 Nov 2021)

Edward Argar: ...carefully on it. We have already, as I have said, not only set out plans for elective recovery and further reforms to improve recruitment and support for our workforce, but announced yesterday the merger of Health Education England with NHS England, which we believe is an important next step in making sure that workforce needs can be considered in the round. The other key element is, as I...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (23 Nov 2021)

Sajid Javid: ...will lose out. The right hon. Gentleman asks me what I am doing about the workforce. We are making the biggest investment in the workforce that this country has ever seen. Yesterday I announced the merger of Health Education England into the NHS, so that we can have a better joined-up strategy, and we have already set out a 15-year framework to consider the long-term needs of the workforce.

Initial Teacher Training - Motion to Take Note (18 Nov 2021)

Baroness Donaghy: ...often got it wrong. The policy objectives of short-term-thinking Governments often directly clash with the longer term requirements of ensuring teacher supply. I saw at first hand the closure and merger of scores of teacher training institutions, not necessarily because of quality but because a Government leaving office failed to bite the bullet; or because the department got its numbers...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 41 - Phased transition to new coroner areas (18 Nov 2021)

James Cartlidge: be merged by order of the Lord Chancellor where the new coroner area would not be the entire local authority. Before 2012, there were 110 coroner areas in England and Wales. Through coroner area mergers, we have brought that number down to 85, and our long-term objective with the Chief Coroner is to reduce it further to around 75 coroner areas. It is intended that this clause will make...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 37 - Discontinuance of investigation where cause of death becomes clear (18 Nov 2021)

James Cartlidge: ...on coroners published in May. To enact some in the Bill is incredible timing—to have Committee recommendations in a Bill within six months. The obvious example is clause 41, dealing with the merger of coroner areas, which we shall come on to. The other important specific point that I wish to make is on safeguards. Again, the hon. Member for Hammersmith is absolutely right. As I have said...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Guatemala: Human Rights (17 Nov 2021)

Diana R. Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether her Department has made an assessment of the potential impact of the merger of multiple Governmental secretariats responsible for the protection and promotion of human rights in Guatemala into the Presidential Commission for Peace and Human Rights on the safety of human right defenders in that country;...

Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Nov 2021)

James Grundy: The people of Leigh have never accepted our forced merger with the rival town—friendly rivals—of Wigan back in 1973. Will the Prime Minister tell me how we can escape the big government of big Wigan by getting our own council back?

Russia: Gas Supplies - Question (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, as Russian forces continue to build up on the Ukrainian border, Associated Press reported that Russia and Belarus are further deepening their integration, stopping short of a full merger. Obviously Lukashenko now relies on Russia for support far more than he did before because of the international community’s opposition to his crackdown on the opposition within the country; 10...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Housing Associations: Mergers (4 Nov 2021)

Apsana Begum: ...the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what assessment he has made of the adequacy of the Social Housing Regulator's (a) oversight and (b) scrutiny of housing association mergers.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Staff (3 Nov 2021)

Amanda Milling: The merger of the two legacy organisations has brought together a wealth of knowledge, experience and skills needed to make progress on both the FCDO's development priorities and Britain's global standing. Prioritisation of the internal workforce continues, to ensure staff are deployed to the areas of the FCDO's greatest need. Work is ongoing on the FCDO's Strategic Workforce Plan, which...

Kurdish Political Representation and Equality in Turkey — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (2 Nov 2021)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: ...affects all women in Turkey. I just do not understand that. I am disappointed that we did not get more concrete answers on the co-ordination of British aid and development in Turkey. I opposed the merger of the Foreign Office and the Department for International Development, but surely the rationale behind the merger was that we could use aid in those diplomatic efforts more effectively....

Education: Condition of School Buildings (1 Nov 2021)

Robin Walker: ...for the School System, Baroness Berridge. The school rebuilding programme will be targeted at schools in the worst condition. While I understand that there are merits in the proposed relocation and merger, we must make hard decisions about how we prioritise use of the Department’s budget, but of course I should be happy to meet my hon. Friend and discuss this further.

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 130 - Power to make consequential provision (27 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: ...and is therefore a narrow power. It is, as I said, a standard provision in a Bill of this size and complexity. A considerable amount of secondary legislation will require amendment following the merger of NHS England and NHS Improvement and the change from clinical commissioning groups to integrated care boards. It would not be appropriate to use primary legislation to list all of those...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 123 - Regulation of health care and associated professions (26 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: ..., which would presumably improve efficiency. That approach has some benefits although I am also mindful of the evidence submitted by the Professional Standards Authority, which warned: “Any mergers would be likely to lead to a period of turbulence of three-to-five years.” It may be of interest that the authority also said that in the coming five or so years, it expected turbulence in...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Vectura: Philip Morris International (22 Oct 2021)

Paul Scully: Decisions on which mergers to investigate on competition grounds are a matter for the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which is an independent non-ministerial department. The CMA’s role in respect of merger control was set out by Parliament in the Enterprise Act 2002. The Act set limits on the CMAs jurisdiction and the standard by which it must assess those transactions. In...

Private Equity Takeovers - Question (21 Oct 2021)

Lord Callanan: My Lords, the UK’s merger regime recognises that investors play a major and positive role in the UK economy and that many UK sectors have benefited substantially from takeovers and mergers. On the few occasions that private equity-funded acquisitions have raised concerns, the Government have always carefully monitored developments and taken action when there were clear public interest grounds.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Developing Countries: Coronavirus (21 Oct 2021)

Amanda Milling: As the former Foreign Secretary said on 18 June 2020, there will be no compulsory redundancies as a result of the merger between FCO and DFID. However, like all Government departments, the FCDO is currently reviewing its operating costs ahead of the next Spending Review to ensure we have the right capabilities to deliver on our international priorities as set out in the Integrated Review of...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Morrisons: Takeovers (20 Oct 2021)

Paul Scully: Under the Enterprise Act 2002, the Government has the power to intervene in mergers on public interest grounds covering national security, media plurality, the stability of the UK financial system and the need to maintain in the UK the capability to combat, and to mitigate the effects of, public health emergencies. My Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State had a constructive call with the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 93 - Establishment of the HSSIB (19 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: ...On the practical side, schedule 13 also allows the making of transfer schemes to ensure a smooth transition when HSSIB is set up. The intention is that following the NHS England and NHS Improvement merger, which we have discussed earlier, the functions of the current Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch will sit with NHS England until such time as HSSIB is established as a separate...
