Jenny Gilruth: ...with the UK Government in supporting international development programmes”. Last year, I wrote to the Minister for Africa, Mr James Duddridge.

Clause 51 clarifies the...

Edward Argar: ..., advice or guidance. There is a difference in the level and severity of the interventions required.

NHS...

Demutualisation of Liverpool Victoria (15 Sep 2021)

Gareth Thomas: ...Victorian scandal of a pauper’s funeral. Over time, those small contributions became a substantial sum, and they were augmented by the funds transferred into the friendly society from a series of mergers with other mutuals. In good faith, those other mutuals brought their assets to share with a broader membership for their common purpose. Today, we have the spectacle of a demutualisation...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Schedule 2 - Integrated care boards: constitution etc (14 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: ...that everybody probably does. The Minister’s response did not quite address the point about balance. The balance of the five members is four NHS and one non-NHS.

If the provision is really about integration and partners coming together on an equal footing to improve the population’s health, everything that we have heard so far...

Vicky Ford: ...2,000 settings joined the early years register while around 4,000 left.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Takeovers: Private Equity (9 Sep 2021)

Paul Scully: The UK is open for business and we welcome investment in our economy. The details of mergers and takeovers are primarily a commercial matter for the parties concerned.

This is why there is an established process for considering whether there are specific public interest...

British Council (8 Sep 2021)

Wendy Chamberlain: ...year. That was also done in the name of cost savings, but it is as yet unclear whether any savings have been made from that decision.
