Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 4 - Local community access to essential in-person banking services (3 Nov 2022)

Siobhain McDonagh: I rise to support new clauses 4 and 5, which we know are supported by our constituents. No matter what kind of constituency we represent, whether it is wealthy, rural or urban, people are desperate for face-to-face services. Recently, in Mitcham town centre, Barclays and Halifax have closed. I stood outside both branches for a week during their opening hours, asking customers why they wanted...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 32 - Disqualification of persons designated under sanctions legislation: GB (3 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister; I think he has just provided clarification that he is confident that there is now a ban on the use of nominee directors as a front to obscure true beneficial ownership. We are grateful for that absolute reassurance. There was perhaps a misunderstanding on our side of some of the technicalities in the Bill that I am seeking to probe, so I am grateful to the Minister for...

Abuse and Deaths in Secure Mental Health Units (3 Nov 2022)

Maria Caulfield: I thank my hon. Friend for his comprehensive question about the issues we face. He is absolutely right to say that systemic failings were identified, and as I have said, at this stage I have not said no to a public inquiry. We need urgently to address these issues, and ensure that, nationally, the same failings are not happening across the board. My concern about a public inquiry is the time...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services: Pupils (3 Nov 2022)

Maria Caulfield: The Department has made no such assessment. However, the Department for Education undertakes and publishes pupil, parent, and teacher omnibus surveys which include a range of questions on their perception of mental health and wellbeing support and promotion in school. This supports our understanding of, amongst other areas, education staff’s perceived confidence in identifying and...

Scottish Parliament: Junior Minister (3 Nov 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...the future. I turn to today’s appointment. It gives me great pleasure to seek Parliament’s agreement to the appointment of Elena Whitham. Although she is relatively new to Parliament, I have no doubt that she brings significant experience to the wide-ranging role of community safety minister. Elena has spoken of how her political convictions have been shaped by her own life experiences...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 22 (2 Nov 2022)

Baroness Chapman of Darlington: My Lords, many of us are worried about the powers to regulate, but it is not just about democracy. I have time for the concerns expressed in the email that was just read out—of course I do. I just point out, however, that the situation that we are in that is so objectionable to the noble Lord’s colleague in Northern Ireland came about because of the actions, decisions and agreements made...

Merchant Shipping (Safety Standards for Passenger Ships on Domestic Voyages) (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (2 Nov 2022)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am very grateful to the Minister for her response. She has given me a lot of confidence that in her new role, on which I congratulate her, she will be robust in ensuring that there is no backsliding on these new regulations. As she has alluded to, collision is of course one of the greatest risks, and it happens on the Thames and on other major rivers, but there are probably more...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 20 (2 Nov 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: Did I say “Lord Tweed of Purvis”? It is written in my notes as “Tweed of Purvis”. It is getting late. I am picking up on the noble Lord, Lord Campbell—it is catching. Maybe there is a suggestion in there—I would be the noble Lord, Lord Wimbledon of Ahmad. My apologies to the noble Lord. The Government have references to the potential use of powers in Clause 13(4), which several...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 16 (2 Nov 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: I have listened again to the noble Lord and, if I may, just for clarity, I will ensure that I get a full response to this. I will check with my officials again and provide the added clarity that the noble Baroness and the noble Lord are seeking. If that needs to be followed up in writing, I will, of course, do so as well. Ultimately, I stand by what I said earlier, that what we are seeking...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Allan Dorans: No, I am almost finished. I will not give way, because the hon. Gentleman has only been in the Chamber a few minutes and this debate has been going on for three and a half hours. In addition, Scotland has one of the most innovative, highly skilled, educated and resourceful people in the world. With independence, we will always get the Government we voted for; we will not have to waste money...

Royal Navy: Conduct towards Women - Commons Urgent Question (2 Nov 2022)

Baroness Goldie: The noble Baroness makes a very important point. I think it is important to remember that nearly 90% of the respondents to the committee would recommend the Armed Forces to other women. I found that reassuring, but that is no reason for complacency on the part of the MoD. I can say to the noble Baroness that over the past year, since we responded to the Select Committee report, enormous...

Police: Vetting, Misconduct and Misogyny - Private Notice Question (2 Nov 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: It is, and I agree with the noble Lord entirely that it is completely unacceptable to have those people in our police forces. The fact is that the chiefs need to take immediate action to ensure that vetting is prioritised in their forces and the public can therefore have confidence in them. It is the responsibility of the individual police forces; they are responsible for their own vetting...

Written Answers — Treasury: Energy: Prices (2 Nov 2022)

James Cartlidge: The government has announced unprecedented support within its Growth Plan to protect households and businesses from high energy prices. On 8th September, it was announced that the Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) will cap the unit price households pay for electricity and gas from 1st October 2022 for 6 months, meaning that the typical household will pay no more than £2500 a year. This is in...

Scottish Parliament: National Care Service (2 Nov 2022)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: I can only imagine that Michelle Thomson’s mobile phone must have been red hot between the time that she made her remark that she had “no confidence whatever” and the intervention that she has just made. However, she said that and she said that she was completely surprised by the lack of detail in her Government’s financial memorandum. Sadly, it does not come as much of a surprise to...

Scottish Parliament: Road Improvements (2 Nov 2022)

Michelle Thomson: ...Fergus Ewing’s call for an updated timeline for completion of dualling the A9. In him, the people of the Highlands have a great advocate and a persistent fighter on their behalf. As has been acknowledged, it is still the case that too many lives are lost or damaged on Scotland’s roads—not least on the roads in question. I am sure that members are united in expressing our condolences...

Public Order Bill - Second Reading (1 Nov 2022)

Baroness Ludford: Okay, that is fair enough, but what I did not like was the tweet from Just Stop Oil saying, in effect—I cannot remember the exact words—who cares about art when the planet is in danger? That struck a very harsh note with me; many of us do care about art. What I support are peaceful protests which avoid both violence and deliberate damage. The noble Viscount, Lord Hailsham, made a powerful...

Fertility Treatment and Employment Rights (1 Nov 2022)

Nickie Aiken: The hon. Member is absolutely right. We have to ensure that we retain these brilliant people in their jobs. We have 1 million job vacancies, and we know how difficult it is to recruit people to jobs, so why do we make it as hard as possible to keep people in their jobs when they are going through fertility treatment? My constituent nearly ended up in an employment tribunal, but because she...

Avian Influenza (1 Nov 2022)

Daniel Zeichner: I thank the Minister for giving me advance sight of his statement, which is welcome but should have been made weeks ago, as the devastating impact on the wild bird population has been known for months and the impact on producers has been getting worse and worse week by week. Yesterday, the Government finally announced that a full bird housing order would come into effect from Monday 7...

National Security (1 Nov 2022)

Derek Twigg: I welcome the Minister to his post and welcome the taskforce. While I have no reason to doubt his integrity or commitment to security, I am a little disappointed that although the shadow Home Secretary and my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) both raised the issue of the Government’s integrity with respect to security, he has not addressed it. I thought he might...

Religious Education in Modern Britain — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (1 Nov 2022)

Martin Vickers: ...who have taken part. It shows that there is considerable concern about RE teaching in our schools. The Minister rightly pointed out the procedure for dealing with complaints about schools not meeting their legal obligation, but I hope that he and his ministerial colleagues can be a little more robust in getting that message down through the system so that parents have the confidence and...
