Pilot Officer William McMullen: Posthumous Recognition (25 Nov 2022)

Nigel Evans: ...debates, but none better than today’s. The word “hero” is bandied around and abused, but not in William McMullen’s case. I thank you for bringing it to our attention. As the Minister said, he has now been properly recognised in Parliament and his name will live on in Hansard. I am sure you will send a copy to the family with the love of every Member of Parliament. Question put and...

Fertility Treatment (Employment Rights) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Mike Penning: As my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Aaron Bell) said, fertility treatment does not affect everybody across our constituencies, but that does not matter. As my hon. Friend the Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Nickie Aiken) knows—I have been in contact with her about it—the issue affects some of my constituents, and if something is wrong for one, 1,000 or...

Carbon Emissions (Buildings) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Dehenna Davison: ...would risk adverse effects on our housing supply, on small and medium-sized enterprises and, given the reach of our construction industry and supply chains, on other sectors of the economy. That said, although we are not supporting this Bill, I am incredibly grateful for my hon. Friend’s enthusiasm, and for keeping this topic at the forefront of our minds. The Under-Secretary of State...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Aaron Bell: ...) for bringing forward the Bill and the Government for their support for it. It delivers our manifesto commitment, and I know there is commitment to it from across the House. As hon. Members have said, this is fundamentally a moral issue, and we all feel abhorrence when we see pictures of trophy hunting. If I have a criticism of my hon. Friend’s Bill—this is not meant entirely...

Electricity and Gas Transmission (Compensation) Bill (25 Nov 2022)

Nusrat Ghani: ...Of course, he raised the grassroots perspective; we are all here to represent our constituents—the David against the Goliath—when we are dealing with big energy and infrastructure companies. He said that 63% of land is used by farmers, so it will be incredibly important to ensure that the new process puts in place arbitration, compensation and communication. I assure my right hon....

Nuclear Test Veterans: Medals - Statement (24 Nov 2022)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I am glad that the noble Lord also mentioned the communities in Australia and elsewhere. Of course, as I said, there has been a government ex gratia payment, which I believe was very important. Although the 1950s and 1960s were a long time ago, it is not too late to honour the brave people involved. Those looking at these cases in the round have difficult judgments to make but, having said...

Death of Awaab Ishak and Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (24 Nov 2022)

Dehenna Davison: ...demanded answers from the chair and the chief executive of Rochdale Boroughwide Housing. Much of the accountability clearly sits with the leadership of RBH. My right hon. Friend was spot on when he said that it “beggared belief” that the now former chief executive Gareth Swarbrick attempted to stay in post. While it is right that RBH recognised that the chief executive’s position was...

Hotel Asylum Accommodation: Local Authority Consultation - Commons Urgent Question (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Murray of Blidworth: My Lords, the noble Lord is entirely right that, of the small-boat arrivals in 2021, 96% are still awaiting an initial decision, as the Minister in the other place said. However, we made more than 14,500 decisions in the year to June 2021, concentrating on deciding older claims, high-harm cases, cases with extreme vulnerability, and children. The noble Lord alluded to the notification of...

Gulf States: Human Rights Abuses - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Scriven: ...three brave members of the public who are attending who have, or have parents who have, been detained or tortured in Bahrain. I particularly thank all speakers, who in one way or another have all said the same thing: we are better than this as a nation when it comes to human rights in the Gulf. We are better than spending UK taxpayers’ money on World Cup preparations that have ended up...

Independent Review of Children’s Social Care (24 Nov 2022)

Claire Coutinho: ...with the power and importance of family. With the right support, families are the best means of protecting, nurturing and promoting the interests of children, now and forever. As the care review said: “We all have a part to play and it starts with love.” Our ambitions for reform will reaffirm the central role of families in the care system, and put love and stable relationships at the...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...to concur with my right hon. Friend’s every word. He has made a powerful case about unexplained wealth orders. That was something of a false dawn for the reasons he set out. Similar to what we said about SLAPPs, we are concerned about the chilling effect—the vast disparity between the financial firepower of the people that the UWOs seek to go after and that of the NCA and, frankly, the...

backbench business: Social Care — [Rushanara Ali in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Damian Green: .... I am very grateful for the commitment made by the Minister. The first is the degree of consensus that underlies this difficult subject. Frankly, the hon. Member for Leicester West (Liz Kendall) said almost nothing I disagreed with, and I suspect that I said almost nothing that she disagreed with—and, of course, I agreed, definitionally, with everything that the Minister said. We all...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 15 - Powers to revoke or replace (24 Nov 2022)

Stella Creasy: ...rights or consumer protections. On Tuesday, Ministers spent much of the time telling us about their record of improving our legal standards and the rights of our constituents. Indeed, the Minister said: “The UK regime sets some of the highest standards of consumer protection in the world, and this will continue to be the case.”––[Official Report, Retained EU Law (Revocation and...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 64 - Disclosure of information in the public interest likely to be relevant to the investigation of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Alison Thewliss: I very much to support everything that the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill said. In his evidence to the Committee, Thomas Mayne of Chatham House said: “This is a perfect opportunity for some kind of anti-SLAPP legislation to be put in the Bill.”––[Official Report, Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Public Bill Committee, 25 October 2022; c. 80, Q166.] If the new...

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 12 - Power to restate retained EU law (24 Nov 2022)

Brendan O'Hara: The Minister is right. As we have said from day one, we oppose the Bill, but if it has to pass—history and the numbers in the room tell us that it will pass—it will do so without our support. As we have said, we have a duty not to ignore the most egregious parts of this legislation. Where we think that it will hurt people, affect businesses or leave holes in the statute book, or is...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 60 - Reporting requirement (enforcement capabilities) (24 Nov 2022)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...such regulatory environments, which we need to address—but the correct thing to do is to work with the FCA, as it is already doing an excellent job, and ensure that it is properly resourced. As I said, £0.6 billion seems like quite a lot, and there are various ways in which we are supporting further improvements via co-operation.

Public Bill Committee: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: Clause 11 - Procedural requirements (24 Nov 2022)

Peter Grant: ...Union, the Scottish Parliament will have a much greater role in scrutinising the actions of our Ministers, acting on our behalf, at the European Council than this Parliament has ever had. As I have said to the Committee before, the problem with lack of accountability and scrutiny of European legislation is not because the European Union’s processes are flawed, but because parliamentary...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 59 - Publication of information about trustees (24 Nov 2022)

I am sad to say that Usmanov is an ex-Arsenal shareholder. He put millions into an irrevocable trust and was once said to be one of the UK’s richest individuals. The Russian asset tracker, which works in partnership with The Guardian and the organised crime and corruption reporting project and other international news organisations, has found out a little bit about where those assets went....

backbench business: Infected Blood Inquiry and Compensation Framework — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (24 Nov 2022)

Alex Burghart: ...important debate, Dame Angela. I say to the hon. Member for Vauxhall (Florence Eshalomi), who speaks from the Labour Front Bench, that the Government absolutely hear loud and clear what has been said today. Although I am just a few weeks into the job, I have been enormously struck by the sheer weight of grief and experience that has led us to this point today and will lead us to our final...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 54 - Entities from high-risk jurisdictions: prohibition on ownership of UK land (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: ...is not innocent, but I have to ask him whether he seriously believes the content of the paragraphs that he has just read out. I have no doubt that there are countries around the world that have said that they are going to increase their AML supervision, but we now have a situation in this country where we have some very bad people, such as Usmanov and others, who own property portfolios of...
