Britain’s Industrial Future (15 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: I do not often start my speeches by directly addressing the constituents of another hon. Member, but may I say something to the constituents of the hon. Member for Peterborough (Paul Bristow), who is no longer in his place? If his constituents who have travelled to Peterborough from outside the United Kingdom are as appalled as I am that they have been denounced as cheap foreign labour by...

Management of the Economy and Ministerial Severance Payments (15 Nov 2022)

Sarah Owen: That perfectly highlights the problem here. We may have had a change at the top, but we have not had a change of the people making the decisions. Ultimately, there was a problem before the mini-Budget. As we have rightly heard from across the House, people were struggling to get on to the housing ladder and that is continuing. So we need to hold the Prime Minister to account for what he...

COP 27 - Statement (15 Nov 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: Perhaps I will wait a moment for the House to settle as there does not seem to be as much interest in COP 27 as there was in the regency Bill. My Lords, I welcome that the Prime Minister raised the case of Alaa Abd el-Fattah with the Egyptian President when he was at COP. The Leader of the House will be aware from my intervention last week how concerned we are for his welfare in your...

Tax Reform Commission (15 Nov 2022)

Liz Saville-Roberts: ...that commission to make recommendations for reform of the tax system; and for connected purposes. All proposals put forward by the commission would have to be consistent with the aim of increasing enough revenue to maintain spending on public services at current levels in real terms as a minimum, and support the delivery of policies aimed at reducing inequalities. This would be a joint...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 96 - Financial penalties (15 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...when we can expect those regulations to be published, I am sure that the Committee would be grateful. One thing that clause 96 makes clear is that any civil penalties imposed by the registrar will not exceed £10,000. I would be grateful for an explanation from the Minister about how that figure was arrived at, and whether he is confident that the power to impose a fine at that level will...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 89 - Fees: costs that may be taken into account (15 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...chairship, Mr Robertson. I rise to introduce amendment 115. When considering any piece of legislation that creates new criminal offences, one of the most important questions we have to ask is how confident we can be that the offences will be adequately policed and enforced. The question is particularly relevant in our deliberations on this Bill, because there is such a wealth of evidence...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (15 Nov 2022)

...disability and their families across Scotland, and our ACE—advisory committee of Enable Scotland—and ACE youth groups connect them to their wider communities, thereby supporting them to grow in confidence, rise to their ambitions, make friends, live independently and, ultimately, be leaders of their communities rather than just observers. Enable Scotland began in 1954, when family...

Scottish Parliament: Gaelic and Scots (15 Nov 2022)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...one-plus-two policy to ensure that languages are brought into our primary schools and throughout primary, so that children are opened to that progress. I would be very happy—although perhaps in another debate—to discuss that and other opportunities further. The Scots language has played a leading role in the life o oor nation, baith in oor past and in the present. If we look back, we...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67 (14 Nov 2022)

Baroness Barran: My Lords, I will now address the amendments concerning the appointment of the new director for freedom of speech and academic freedom at the Office for Students. Amendments 67 and 68, tabled by the noble Lords, Lord Collins of Highbury and Lord Wallace of Saltaire, and spoken to by the noble Baronesses, Lady Thornton and Lady Smith, cover similar ground, as the noble Baronesses pointed out....

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 63 (14 Nov 2022)

Baroness Barran: My Lords, I would like to address the group of amendments relating to overseas funding. Amendments 63 and 64, tabled by my noble friend Lord Johnson of Marylebone, seek to amend the transparency measures concerning overseas income received by higher education providers. They would add tuition fees to the categories of overseas funding in scope and require the OfS to consider whether a...

Early Years Childcare: Staff-Child Ratios — [Carolyn Harris in the Chair] (14 Nov 2022)

Justin Tomlinson: ...what is expected and they will be reviewed on that. There needs to be a greater emphasis, or perhaps a sole emphasis, on safeguarding, so that it is the priority. We need to give the whole system confidence that it is consistent and fair, and that those nurseries that are doing an amazing and wonderful job are recognised for that. We also need to play fair between school-based nurseries...

Australia and New Zealand Trade Deals (14 Nov 2022)

Drew Hendry: May I extend my birthday wishes to the Minister, too? I will not ask him how many candles are on his cake, but I am afraid that I cannot hold a candle for the defence he gave for these deals. It seems that I am not alone. In addition to the right hon. Member for Camborne and Redruth (George Eustice), there seem to be many more Tory critics; I will refer to a few of them in my remarks....

Written Answers — Treasury: Income (10 Nov 2022)

Andrew Griffith: An important feature of the UK’s macroeconomic framework is the operational independence of the Bank of England and the financial regulators. Part of the Treasury’s role within the framework is to set, maintain, and legislate for the overall regulatory architecture in a way that allows these independent institutions to achieve their objectives. The Bank of England has price stability...

Scottish Parliament: Fatal Accident Inquiries (10 Nov 2022)

Elena Whitham: We have every confidence in the system that is in place for fatal accident inquiries . We keep matters under review in consultation with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, and we continually consider and evaluate whether there are ways in which the system can be improved further. The Crown Office has significantly reformed its processes to reduce the time taken to investigate...

Scottish Parliament: School Capacity (Renfrewshire) (10 Nov 2022)

Neil Bibby: ...Dargavel primary school is half the size that it needs to be. It was built for a capacity of around 450 pupils, but the estimated roll is set to be 1,100. Children who were promised a new school now face learning in Portakabins; parents are appalled and have lost confidence in Renfrewshire Council. The mistake will cost millions of pounds from Renfrewshire’s already squeezed education...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Workplace Stigma) (10 Nov 2022)

Sue Webber: Mental health stigma in the workplace is an important issue, and I thank Emma Roddick for bringing it to the chamber and for her personal, empowered and heartfelt speech. As we all know, the Covid-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the population’s mental health. Although that has raised public awareness and increased the number of conversations that take place about mental illness, we...

Scottish Parliament: Alternative Pathways to Primary Care (10 Nov 2022)

Carol Mochan: ...coming to fruition. There is a lot in the report that the Government must act on. If it fails to do so, it will let down many people who would benefit from the great reform that is outlined. I am confident that we can, with the right approach and good will, take into account the testimony of experts and the public on matters as important as self-referral and patient records, and that we...

Levelling Up Rural Britain (9 Nov 2022)

Danny Kruger: It is always very good to be called last in debates because it means that I get to listen to everybody else’s speeches. I have enjoyed the debate enormously and it has been very edifying, particularly to listen to everybody boasting about how big and beautiful their constituency is. My Devizes constituency is as big and beautiful as any, but more importantly, I suggest that it is the oldest...

European Women’s Football Championship: Girls and Young Women (9 Nov 2022)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...our historic sporting rivalry aside for this special occasion. I take the opportunity to put on the record my well wishes for Rob Page and the Wales men’s World cup squad. The line-up is being announced tonight in my neighbouring constituency, Rhondda. All of us back home are excited to sing “Yma o Hyd” over the next few weeks. But today’s focus, quite rightly, is on the important...

Nature and Climate Declaration — [JAMES GRAY in the Chair] (9 Nov 2022)

Ruth Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Gray. I am sure that those in the know will be listening to the debate, and that your elevation to the peerage will happen very soon. I am delighted to be here in place of my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel), who is attending the COP27 conference in Egypt at this moment, and to be able to respond to...
