Independent Review of Children’s Social Care (24 Nov 2022)

Claire Coutinho: ...to improve children’s lives deserve our fullest praise. Many children who have been supported by children’s social care go on to lead happy and fulfilling lives. That is a testament not only to their resilience, but to the quality of the help and support they have received when they have needed it. However, the message from these reports and from the many excellent contributions made...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 15 - Powers to revoke or replace (24 Nov 2022)

Alex Sobel: ...15 and 16 in particular place into the hands of Ministers. The Hansard Society has commented that clause 15 includes, with just a few caveats, “Do anything we want” powers for Ministers. I will not denigrate them by calling them Henry VIII powers. The Hansard Society's written evidence says the blank-cheque powers allow Ministers to act without having to observe the same oversight...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 14 - Powers to restate or reproduce: general (24 Nov 2022)

Alex Sobel: ...follows that she should readily accept that their reasoning should be published. On consultation, the Bar Council’s written evidence refers to clauses 12 to 15 and schedule 3 granting Ministers enormous power to legislate at will to replace or update retained EU law, without any requirement to consult anyone, on matters of enormous importance to business, consumers, employees and the...

backbench business: Infected Blood Inquiry and Compensation Framework — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Alex Burghart: ...(Florence Eshalomi), who speaks from the Labour Front Bench, that the Government absolutely hear loud and clear what has been said today. Although I am just a few weeks into the job, I have been enormously struck by the sheer weight of grief and experience that has led us to this point today and will lead us to our final destination, hopefully next year. As so many others have, I pay...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 11 - Procedural requirements (24 Nov 2022)

Justin Madders: ...Committee, because that is the point of a Bill Committee—that we have the opportunity to scrutinise legislation and question the Minister on its intent. I think the record will show that that has not been possible on every occasion. That is why this amendment is so important, because the Government are obsessed with keeping power for themselves. The idea that the decision to leave the EU...

Backbench Business: UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (24 Nov 2022)

Tom Pursglove: ...for this Government is increasing disability employment and reducing the disability employment gap. We have heard strong representations for that important objective across the House this afternoon. The Government have a range of programmes and initiatives that are supporting disabled people and those with health conditions to start, stay and succeed in work. This includes disability...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 44 - HMRC anti-money laundering function (24 Nov 2022)

Margaret Hodge: I do not know whether I have the quote here from the previous HMRC permanent secretary—I will dig it up and send it to the Minister—but he actually said, in evidence to the Treasury Committee I think, that he did not quite understand why it was part of his job to do the supervision. I am not quoting him accurately, but the purport of what he said was that they see it as marginal and a...

COP 27: Commitments - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: ...for the regular briefings it has provided. These briefings recognise that facing the crisis involves every aspect of our public policy. I much look forward to hearing from your Lordships, who I know will raise questions across a range of areas. António Guterres at the opening of COP 27 defined climate change as the defining issue of our time. Few will disagree with that. COP 27 was one of...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 3 - Sunset of retained EU rights, powers, liabilities etc (24 Nov 2022)

Stella Creasy: ...of laws that will be affected by the Bill overall. Given that the number is so small in comparison with the at least 2,500 that have been identified, and the possible 4,000, why could the Minister not show us what will happen next? After all, our debates on Tuesday were all about what would happen if we deleted every piece of legislation. There are no guarantees about what would happen...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 4 - Abolition of supremacy of EU law (24 Nov 2022)

Justin Madders: ...4, 5 and 6. Clause 4 is a Ronseal clause: with regard to abolishing the supremacy of the EU, it does exactly what it says on the tin. However, unlike putting a coat of varnish on a fence, it will not be a case of simply walking away once it is done. It is inevitable that courts will need to consider case law that we have previously regarded as settled, because that law was settled when EU...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (23 Nov 2022)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the moving and forensic speech of the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan. I hesitated before putting my name down to speak because I cannot claim the knowledge of Northern Ireland that other noble Lords can. Having had the privilege of being a member of the independent Opsahl commission that considered the future of Northern Ireland during the Troubles, and...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (23 Nov 2022)

Lord McInnes of Kilwinning: My Lords, I do not stand before your Lordships as someone from Northern Ireland and I have never been a victim of terrorism, but I care very much about Northern Ireland’s place and people. I am very concerned about the way in which Northern Ireland is too often treated as somehow outside the mainstream of UK politics, as if only people from Northern Ireland may speak about the situation in...

Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme (23 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Gullis: .... I have already explained the deeply saddening impact that it has had on Sharlotte’s immediate family. However, it has also had a huge effect on the local community. The killing of an innocent child in such tragic circumstances comes with a set of exceptional impacts on the children around Sharlotte, which are unlikely to be felt in cases not involving the death of a child....

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 61 (23 Nov 2022)

Emma Lewell-Buck: My hon. Friend is correct. It is simply not in the interests of local people to have no mechanism at all to remove someone from office who is acting inappropriately. People in my area who have experienced the damage caused by our previous council leader and his supporters find offensive the suggestion that removing that level of accountability has somehow given them more of a voice or...

Tourism Industry: Devon and Cornwall (23 Nov 2022)

Kevin Foster: ...also allow more appropriate consideration of things such as the balance of regulations that should apply. My uncle served in the Plymouth and then the Devon fire service for 20-odd years, so I know there are very good reasons why we have the fire safety regulations that we have for holiday accommodation, and I know that the legislation was brought in as a result of hard experience,...

Government Contracts: Bain & Company - Question (23 Nov 2022)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, our understanding is that Bain & Company currently does no work for the US federal Government or US federal government agencies and has done no such work since early 2013, but the UK Government are confident that our key ally, the United States, will undertake the necessary due diligence to investigate such matters.

Pre-payment Meters (Self-disconnection) (23 Nov 2022)

Anne McLaughlin: .... I pay my gas and electricity bills by standing order, and I pay in arrears. If I stop paying those bills, I can be disconnected by my supplier, but it is very much a final step and a last resort. Not so for those who pay in advance—that is, those on prepayment meters. Should they be unable to pay for gas or electricity, disconnection is the first thing that happens to them. The minute...

Hotel Asylum Accommodation: Local Authority Consultation (23 Nov 2022)

Philip Hollobone: I believe that the situation is now so bad and chaotic that the Minister should consider his position. On Friday, North Northampton Council, Northants police and other local agencies had an online meeting with the Home Office and Serco regarding the potential use of the 51-bed Royal hotel in Kettering, slap bang in the middle of the town centre. Serious environmental health issues, including...

Speaker’s Statement (23 Nov 2022)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...bar for such a complaint is high. The House should take action only when essential in order to provide reasonable protection for the House, its Members or its officers from improper obstruction. I note that the Committee itself, of which the hon. Gentleman is a member, has said: “Had Ms Dorries remained Secretary of State, driving a policy of selling the channel, we may have sought a...

Scottish Parliament: Primary Care (23 Nov 2022)

Paul O'Kane: The cabinet secretary did not want to hear that from his colleague. Our NHS is on its knees and its front-line staff are suffering. They have had enough of the failing health secretary not listening to what they need. That is why the RCN is striking for the first time in its history and why Scottish Ambulance Service staff, including paramedics, are striking for the first time in over 30...
