Public Bill Committee: Social Housing (Regulation) Bill [Lords]: Clause 29 - Inspection plan (29 Nov 2022)

Matthew Pennycook: ..., which ensured that the Bill was strengthened. Routine inspections of social housing landlords must be central to the new consumer regulatory regime introduced by the Bill if tenants are to have confidence that landlords will be monitored appropriately and deterred from risking breaches that could undermine health and wellbeing. The welcome removal of the serious detriment test in its...

Privilege (29 Nov 2022)

Deidre Brock: ...party respects the need for a transparent and open process. The Leader of the House has previously spoken of the importance of parliamentary modernisation, and of how the House operates unlike any normal administrative centre in the public or private sector, and I agree with her. The procedures of the Houses of Parliament need updating, and this situation perhaps provides us with an...

Energy Security (29 Nov 2022)

Grant Shapps: I thank the hon. Member for welcoming me to the Dispatch Box. As he will know as Chair of the Select Committee, we have been working on the Sizewell deal for quite some time and we got to the Government investment decision stage yesterday. Of course, we have been talking to potential financiers along with EDF and the French Government. We are confident about the level of interest, but I have...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Schedule 3 - Regulations: procedure (29 Nov 2022)

Justin Madders: I think I have got rather lost in the number of analogies there; I might want to pull over and take a breather. The point is that we just do not know the full extent of the Bill. If we do not know, and if the Ministers and civil servants do not know, we cannot be confident that there will be no unintended consequences, which is why the level of scrutiny that the Bill affords is inadequate....

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 73 - Offence of failure to prevent fraud, false accounting or money laundering (29 Nov 2022)

Margaret Hodge: Both Ministers know that reform has been promised, and delayed, for a long time. The 2015 Conservative manifesto committed to making it illegal for companies to fail to put in place measures to prevent economic crime. The 2017 Ministry of Justice consultation on corporate liability reform sat for three and a half years. Inexplicably, it found that there was not enough evidence to pursue...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 71 - Suspicious Activity Reporting: risk rating (29 Nov 2022)

Seema Malhotra: ...Bill, which set out the context and stakeholder views, it was clear that the SARs regime was failing. The databases of referrals were going unreviewed and unlooked at, because the resources were not there. There was no effective means that we could see of prioritising SARs fed into the NCA. SARs is an essential tool in our defence against money laundering, but if the system is not working,...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 18 - Abolition of business impact target (29 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: My apologies for being late for the start of the sitting, Sir Gary. About eight years ago, I bought myself a car. For a long time, the car did pretty much what I wanted it to do, but now it is showing its age and is not really behaving the way I would like, and I am wondering whether it is worth keeping. It would be foolhardy for me to get rid of my car when I have no idea what kind of car I...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: SMEs: Recruitment Support (29 Nov 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...how we can make it more effective. The hon. Gentleman is right to say that there are many issues facing businesses today, and we are keen to help them get through the difficulties that will no doubt continue over the next few months, but in my experience of business our best years come after our worst years, and I think we can be confident when looking ahead while also recognising that...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Safety Bill - Update (29 Nov 2022)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am repeating the following Written Ministerial Statement made today in the other place by my Right Honourable Friend, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Michelle Donelan MP: The Online Safety Bill is a vital, world-leading piece of legislation, designed to ensure that tech companies take more responsibility for the safety of their users, particularly children. It...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Safety Bill - Update (29 Nov 2022)

Michelle Donelan: ...better protections for legal speech and a concern that too much power over what we see and engage with online rests with tech giants themselves. Making progress on these important concerns did not, in my view, need to come at the expense of one another. I therefore set out a clear approach with three main aims: Strengthen the protections for children in the Bill Ensure that adults’ right...

Luton Train Station Redevelopment (28 Nov 2022)

Huw Merriman: It is a pleasure to respond to my first Adjournment debate. I congratulate the hon. Member for Luton South (Rachel Hopkins) on securing today’s debate on Luton station in her constituency. I know her constituency well—she rumbled me as an Arsenal fan, but it is fair to say that my nearest top-quality football team would have been Luton, as I was brought up in Buckinghamshire. I have...

Finance Bill (28 Nov 2022)

Peter Aldous: ...appreciated. The purpose of the Bill, as the Minister—my fellow Suffolk MP—said at the beginning, is to put on to the statute book many of the tax and spending decisions that the Chancellor announced in his autumn statement, with some others being deferred until the spring Finance Bill in 2023. The Chancellor was confronted with an incredibly difficult challenge on 17 November, so in...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 37 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, it gives me pleasure to speak to Amendments 37 and 53 in this group. Before I address them, I associate myself with government Amendment 57, on the needs of SMEs. I am grateful to my noble friend the Minister for meeting me last week to discuss these issues. I am also grateful that she listened in Committee; that is why we see government Amendment 57 in this group. Before I address...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 33 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...; and to encourage greater diversity. If you are going to deliver the levelling up that the Government are so keen on and achieve net zero, it is important to include these principles. We know that social value is included in the national procurement policy statement but it is not referred to in the Bill itself. We also know that public benefit is mentioned in the Bill, but that is a...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Noakes: ...raised by the Benches opposite about whether I was here for the commencement of the debate. I assure the House that I heard every word of the Minister’s opening remarks from my place and I am not usually regarded as invisible in your Lordships’ House. Before I get to my amendments, let me say that I have much sympathy with the amendments tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton. I...

Independent Cultural Review of London Fire Brigade (28 Nov 2022)

Florence Eshalomi: Confidence in our emergency services is built on trust—trust that they will be there for people in their moment of need and do everything possible to help them, and trust that no matter what they look like or who they are, they will be treated with respect. Sadly, this report brings that trust into question. In moments such as this, my Vauxhall constituents will need confidence in their...

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...
