Scottish Parliament: Minimum Unit Pricing of Alcohol (21 Nov 2017)

Shona Robison: ...than a Parliament that unites to tackle the scourge of the cheap, high-strength alcohol that causes so much damage across our nation. I expect that I need not remind members that alcohol misuse costs Scotland £3.6 billion each year, or £900 for every adult. We need not cast our nets far to see at first hand the devastation that is caused by alcohol misuse. The annual national...

Household Debt - Question for Short Debate (13 Nov 2017)

the Bishop of St Albans: ...levels of unsecured debt. Figures from the FCA last month indicate that a quarter of UK adults have been overdrawn in the past 12 months, and that more than 4 million people have already failed to pay domestic bills or meet credit commitments in three or more of the past six months. Forty-seven per cent of renters say they would struggle to meet their rent if payments went up by more than...

Energy in Wales — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Geraint Davies: ...to follow the excellent speech made by my hon. Friend the Member for Ynys Môn (Albert Owen). As the Minister will know, within the next few weeks the Government will launch their clean growth plan. I very much hope that he will use all his energies to ensure that the Swansea bay tidal lagoon, the tidal lagoon planned for north Wales and rail electrification to Swansea will be in that...

Scottish Parliament: Community Justice (14 Sep 2017)

Michael Matheson: ...rightly takes the view that a prison sentence is absolutely justified, but for individuals who end up in custody, we need to think beyond just bricks and mortar. That change is part of the rationale behind our plans for the female custodial estate. In July, I witnessed the start of demolition work on Cornton Vale prison. The Scottish Prison Service has now commenced the planning and public...

Deputy Chairmen of Committees - Membership Motions (27 Jun 2017)

...to the Committee; That the evidence taken by the Committee be published, if the Committee so wishes. That a Select Committee be appointed to examine the constitutional implications of all public bills coming before the House; and to keep under review the operation of the constitution; That, as proposed by the Committee of Selection, the following members be appointed to the Committee:...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...could be done, we have to recognise that at present the Government have given us very little insight into these important developments. Of course, this is against a background where they did not plan for Brexit because the Government of David Cameron had not expected to lose the referendum. It is not surprising, therefore, that there is very little consultation or discussion on two areas...

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I am delighted that today we have a final opportunity to scrutinise the Digital Economy Bill and, I hope, get it on to the statute book before the Dissolution of Parliament. The Bill has been widely supported during its passage and tackles head-on some serious issues that many in this House feel strongly about. It will help us to extend digital connectivity, protect children from online...

Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill - Second Reading (6 Apr 2017)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, I have made space for this Bill by withdrawing the previous one. The penny dropped for me about the difficulties of a missing person’s property effectively being left ownerless when I heard the father of a woman who was missing explain the problems. He has heard me say this before, but he is a solicitor and must know how to handle bureaucracy, so this is a real problem. Peter...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (2nd Day) (20 Mar 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...—in effect, the current definition of “prohibited material”. The debate on this has been strong on both sides, and it is an interesting idea that we have considered. However, our aim with this Bill, as has been said by several noble Lords, is to protect children from accessing pornographic material. We are creating parity between the offline and the online worlds in...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Monks: ...risky. The UK’s economy, including Scotland’s, will be in the eye of consequential political storms, buffeted by multiple cross-currents and uncertainties. How robust is our economy going to be? Bill Clinton’s advisers famously said: “It’s the economy, stupid”, that motivates voters. Not at the moment, it is not. Politics is overriding economics; hearts...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (2nd Day) (28 Feb 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...over Clause 13. I listened with some interest to the debate we just had as a former councillor of the south London Borough of Lambeth; that was a very long time ago. We now move on to Part 2 of the Bill and amendments to the compulsory purchase provisions. Noble Lords will have noted that there are a large number of government amendments. These are mainly to ensure that the temporary...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Taylor of Goss Moor: My Lords, I should first draw attention to the register of interests. I am a director of some development companies. I also run my own consultancy around this area and work in advising government, and have done so for successive Governments. I work with students who are doing planning courses for both the University of Cambridge and the University of Plymouth. For the first part of what I...

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Tim Loughton: I am proud not only to be part of the debate and to see this Bill come of age—and the NCS comes of age with the Bill, just as the NCS is a coming-of-age project—but of the small part I played in its genesis. I was there back in 2005 when it was a germ of an idea from the then Prime Minister. He spoke to a number of youth leaders and tasked Paul Oginsky, who later became David...

Savings (Government Contributions) Bill - Second Reading (12 Jan 2017)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, the provisions in the Bill appear at first glance to be quite straightforward. The Bill sets up the mechanisms to create lifetime ISAs and a Help to Save scheme. As the noble Baroness, Lady Drake, noted, the total cost to government in 2020-21 of the LISA is estimated at £830 million. The total cost to government of the Help to Save scheme in the same period would be £70...

Circle Housing and Orchard Village (12 Jan 2017)

Jon Cruddas: ...exists, having merged only last month with Affinity Sutton to form Clarion Housing Group, the country’s largest housing association with nearly 130,000 homes and half a million tenants, and with plans to build another 50,000 homes. Orchard Village was formerly known as the Mardyke Estate. Back in 2007, the London Borough of Havering balloted residents to find out whether they agreed...

Social Mobility Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...months ago, we have seen much activity of direct relevance to it. We have had the government response; the Sainsbury review and the Government’s response to that; the Technical and Further Education Bill, which will arrive in your Lordships’ House next month; the latest State of the Nation report by the Social Mobility Commission; and, just yesterday, the revelation—that...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2016)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ...of the Association of Community Health Councils”. The junior doctor then went behind the curtain. Of course, it is a fallacy that you cannot hear what is going on on the other side of that curtain. I could hear him phoning the consultant: “I think you should come down, sir. He says he’s the director of the Association of Community Health Councils”. That, of course,...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget 2017-18 (15 Dec 2016)

Derek Mackay: ...growth and the impact of a low oil price on our oil and gas sector. Unemployment, although it varies from month to month, is down over the past year, and employment is higher than it was before the 2008 financial crisis. The United Kingdom Government’s plans for a hard Brexit represent a key risk to Scotland’s economy. The fall in the pound is pushing up inflation. That puts...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord Fox: ...and tried to make the best of it, but there is no gloss shiny enough to hide the terrible prospects for public finances by the end of this Parliament because by the end of this Parliament a £220 billion Brexit-induced debt black hole looms for our country, and this from a Government who at the last election stood on economic probity. It is hard to see how the return of real inflation...

National Citizen Service Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Wei: My Lords, I speak today with a tremendous sense of delight at the arrival of this Bill and its reception so far. I declare an interest as one of those who helped early on to establish the groundwork for what became the Challenge Network charity before the 2010 election, creating one of the original pilots of the National Citizen Service programme where I was involved from as early as 2008,...
