Scottish Parliament: Drug Deaths (12 Sep 2019)

Miles Briggs: ...had to use our business time for the previous one, and I hope that the minister has heard the message that we should have Government debate time on this issue as soon as possible. Over the summer recess, I undertook a number of visits across Scotland to meet people who run drug services. We need to start by asking where we have gone so wrong. People who work on the front line are quite...

Scottish Parliament: Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 (Post-legislative Scrutiny Reports) (12 Sep 2019)

Margaret Mitchell: ..., and on demonstrating that they have achieved the required culture change in leadership and governance. The Justice Sub-Committee on Policing was therefore disappointed to hear prior to summer recess that police unions and staff associations had been excluded from any pre-budget decision-making processes. Although there have been some improvements in governance and accountability, there...

Scottish Parliament: Police Scotland (Contact Assessment Model) (11 Sep 2019)

Jenny Gilruth: During recess, I was grateful to have the opportunity to learn more about the CAM pilot, along with my colleague Rona Mackay, at the contact command and control centre in Govan. Given that the CAM pilot had a 99 per cent compliance rate, can the cabinet secretary provide more detail regarding when he expects the model to be rolled out nationally?

Scottish Parliament: House of Commons (Constitutional Developments) (11 Sep 2019)

Michael Russell: ...than any other prorogation in modern times, and the court’s decision in Scotland today reflects on that. The Prime Minister took the step pre-emptively, before the Commons had returned from recess, thereby presenting MPs with a fait accompli. All those factors—the use of executive powers to deny MPs a voice, the discarding of recent commonly accepted practice and the denial of any...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight (11 Sep 2019)

Emma Harper: ...of the sector—that is the Scottish Government’s target. Our farmers, fishers, growers, pickers and all those who work in our agricultural sector need to be supported. I spent the summer recess visiting farms, attending agricultural events and food and drink events, and speaking to people on the front line. As colleagues have mentioned in the chamber, south-west Scotland has 48 per cent...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law): Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 Section 3(2) (9 Sep 2019)

Gavin Newlands: ...devastating no-deal Brexit, as was confirmed only yesterday by the former Work and Pensions Secretary. Already, we are seeing that impact. The Northern Ireland economy “has entered or is entering recession”, according to a survey by Ulster Bank. It suggests that Brexit-related uncertainty underpinned the fall in private sector output in August and that this is just a taste of things to...

Prorogation (Disclosure of Communications) (9 Sep 2019)

Simon Hoare: ...—who has felt that proroguing Parliament has been the right thing to do. We should not be hiding behind the narrative of, “Well, we were going to rise for three weeks anyway for the conference recess”. Having had six weeks off already, the conference recess should not have been used as an argument to support a Prorogation. The conference recess should not have been taking place, and...

Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointment Functions) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Cormack: ...only briefly as I hope to contribute to the later, main debate. I just want to take up the last point made by the noble Baroness, Lady Harris of Richmond. Even had we had the so-called Conference Recess, we would have been sitting throughout this week, up to and including Thursday, which would have given us time for a whole day on Northern Ireland. Would that be too much when we have the...

Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (9 Sep 2019)

Paul Scully: ...why Prorogation would not be a good idea if it were to kick this issue beyond 31 October. We have talked about the lack of ability to debate other issues, but I did not hear Members asking for recesses to be cancelled when it would have affected their holidays, at Easter or other recess periods in which the House was not sitting. There are always unfortunate events around the world that...

Points of Order (9 Sep 2019)

John Bercow: ...forward—the word begins with “p” and ends in “t. My advice is: persist, persist, persist. There is nothing to prevent her from returning to the matter when we come back after the conference recess. On the Conservative Benches, the right hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), who is not in this place—I believe he is chairing various Committees this afternoon or attending...

Nuclear Power Stations - Question (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Teverson: My Lords, before the Summer Recess, the Government agreed that the UK should have a zero-carbon target for 2050. I cannot remember if that was from this Government or the May Government. Can the Minister confirm that that is still the Government’s position, although what is more important is meeting the recommendations of the Climate Change Committee? When will we have an updated clean...

Early Parliamentary General Election (No. 2) (9 Sep 2019)

Ivan Lewis: In its handling of Brexit, this House has lost the respect of the country and made us a laughing stock around the world. Prolonged uncertainty, as much as no deal, can tip us into recession, with disastrous consequences for jobs and living standards. I hear high-minded speeches about protecting the constitution and the propriety expected of Government, and I accept that a small number of...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Manufacturing Industries (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...made of the manufacturing purchasing managers’ index falling to a 7-year low of 47.4; and what assessment they have made of the statement by Capital Economics that the sector is “on track for recession”.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Deech: ...that this was some drafting oversight. No one has clarified either whether the “two days” are sitting days or calendar days. What if an offer comes at the weekend, during the Christmas Recess or some time when we are not here? Since the lawyers, both the noble and learned Lords in this House and those who are clearly just as learned but are mere QCs, have different opinions about this,...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund: British House Building Industry (5 Sep 2019)

Alex Cunningham: ...It is not a situation fit for 21st-century Britain. When Labour left office, housing was at the heart of our decision making: we had just pulled the country back from the cliff edge of the global recession; we had just switched funding from other Departments to deliver the biggest investment in social housing in a generation; and we had just protected people’s homes with Labour’s...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Second Reading (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Bilimoria: which shows that factory output is at its lowest level in seven years. People who are very pro Brexit say, “Europe is going nowhere. Germany is going down the tubes and it is going to have a recession”. That is bad because a declining pound in Germany makes it less competitive for the Germans to export to us, one of their biggest markets. For the UK, while the low pound is great...

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund (5 Sep 2019)

Luke Graham: I secured a debate on Scottish funding and devolved funding just before the summer recess to which no SNP MP turned up. In that debate, I gave the opportunity to challenge those figures and have an in-depth, detailed discussion about them, because they are not recognised by the House of Commons Library. If they are, I will be happy to welcome another debate on the topic, so that we can take...

Backbench Business: Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Sep 2019)

Lisa Cameron: better would save a lot of money; we should not have to change systems that have already cost the taxpayer millions of pounds. I was pleased to secure a debate on smart cities just before the recess, in which we talked about 5G. Driverless technology will enable ambulances to get to incidents much quicker when we have 5G technology and the next industrial revolution—this technological...

Point of Order (5 Sep 2019)

Margaret Greenwood: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The Government introduced a negative statutory instrument just three days before the summer recess for a pilot of managed migration to universal credit and payments to severely disabled people who lost out in transferring to it. The Secretary of State said that the Government had been advised by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments to use a negative...
