Backbench Business: Energy Efficiency and the Clean Growth Strategy — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (8 Mar 2018)

Claire Perry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. You tempt me, but I will say what I had planned to about this excellent debate. May I wish everyone a happy International Women’s Day? [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear!”] I am so proud to represent my constituents on this marvellous day—a great day for discussing boys’ and girls’ infrastructure...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Callanan: ...We will seek to ensure that our future approach is at least as ambitious as the current arrangements. Furthermore, we have set ambitious emissions reduction targets framed by the Climate Change Act 2008; leaving the EU does not change that. As I have said, the purpose of the Bill is to ensure continuity and clarity in our laws without prejudice to the ongoing negotiations with the EU. I do...

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Dame Cheryl Gillan: ...for calling me to speak so early in the debate, Mr Speaker. I add my congratulations to the hon. Member for Coventry North West (Mr Robinson) on the compassionate way in which he introduced his Bill, and on bringing it before the House. I hope that I am not assuming too much when I say that I think there is good support for it on both sides of the House. More importantly, I believe that...

Social Housing and Regeneration: Earl’s Court and West Kensington (20 Feb 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: ...redevelopment as 440 mainly luxury flats. Why give up now on luxury residential development, which was previously seen as not just another licence to print money, but a way of integrating the key Empress State site into Capco’s master plan for Earl’s Court and West Kensington? The answer is that throwing in the towel on Empress State is the clearest sign yet that not just the...

Environment: 25-year Plan - Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2018)

Baroness Byford: My Lords, I begin by declaring my farming and other interests as listed in the register. The 25-year environment plan is long awaited and I for one am very glad that the farming and environment plans have been merged into one document. I am grateful to the Minister for introducing this debate. As he will be aware, some 70% of our land is farmed; crops, livestock, forestry and conservation are...

Heathrow Airport: Public Consultation (24 Jan 2018)

Jesse Norman: ...if I may. I have relatively little time remaining, and lots of questions have been asked. As the right hon. Member for Twickenham knows, not only is the whole process governed under statute by the Planning Act 2008, but an independent former lord justice of appeal, Sir Jeremy Sullivan, has the specific job of advising on the consultation process. That is designed to give the public...

Water Abstraction Regulations - Motion to Regret (15 Jan 2018)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ..., that water is one of our essential natural resources. Our ambition for clean and plentiful water for both the environment and people is a key goal of the Government’s 25-year environment plan. I say to my noble friend Lady McIntosh that with 75% of the land in this country farmed, surely it is the case that farming and an enhancement of the environment are mutually compatible. That...

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...
