Devolved Administrations: 20th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (22 May 2019)

Lord Duncan of Springbank: My Lords, it has been a wide-ranging debate. I hope I can do it justice this evening but I will exercise ministerial priority in addressing two points which need to be drawn out of the overall discussion. I address my first point to the noble Lord, Lord Hain. He raises important issues regarding our wider legacy question but also, specifically, about pensions for those who have suffered in...

International Education Strategy (22 May 2019)

Adrian Bailey: This debate merits a much longer time being spent on it, given the quality and expertise shown in the contributions. A whole range of issues was raised. I accept what the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell) said about the importance of transnational education, but I do not think this is either/or. A better visa offer, generating more foreign students coming to this country, would of itself...

British Steel - Statement (22 May 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, was there ever any prospect of British Steel being selected to provide all the steel rails necessary for the HS2 project, and would that have made any difference?

Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Edward Argar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, as I do so frequently these days. I thank the hon. Member for Rotherham (Sarah Champion) for securing a debate on such an important subject, and I will start by briefly acknowledging her work and dedication to the cause of improving support for those who fall victim to the horrendous crimes of sexual violence and child sexual...

Petition - Funding for Russell Hall Primary School: Farming Community: Suicide (22 May 2019)

Robert Goodwill: Would that I had a magic wand! I can think of a number of applications I could use it for at this present very difficult time. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Brecon and Radnorshire (Chris Davies) for securing this important debate. Coming just after Mental Health Awareness Week, it gives us a chance to consider this important issue affecting key communities across the country....

Leaving the European Union - Statement (22 May 2019)

Viscount Hailsham: My Lords, may I say to my noble friend that she should suggest to the Prime Minister that, if the withdrawal agreement makes no progress, she should have cross-party discussions in order to ascertain whether there is support for revoking Article 50 preceded by a further referendum to authorise that step?

Pension Funds: Financial and Ethical Investments — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Edward Davey: I thank everyone who has contributed to this debate, which has been really good. There is some degree of consensus emerging. I agree with what the Minister said on carbon capture and storage. I was disappointed that the former Conservative Chancellor, George Osborne, got rid of the CCS projects that I had been developing as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, particularly the...

Petition - Funding for Russell Hall Primary School (22 May 2019)

Judith Cummins: I rise to present a petition on behalf of teachers and staff at Russell Hall Primary School in Queensbury in my constituency. This petition has been signed by every single teacher and every member of support staff at the school, who are extremely concerned that this Government’s cuts to school funding are having a detrimental impact on the school’s ability to provide pupils with a...

The petition states: The petition of residents of Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire and of friends of the schools in the Henley area, Declares that a funding review is needed in...

Unauthorised Encampments (22 May 2019)

Toby Perkins: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make it a criminal offence to demand money to vacate an unauthorised encampment; and for connected purposes. The relationship between the Traveller community and the resident community is one of the most tense of any in our society. As Members of Parliament, we are often contacted to support those caught up in the unhappy collision...

British Steel (22 May 2019)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement. This is indeed very worrying news for the workers, their families and the communities who rely on British Steel directly in Scunthorpe, Skinningrove and Teesside and all the way through the supply chain. At least 25,000 people will be worried sick this morning, wondering whether they will have a job this time next week. As the...

Leaving the European Union (22 May 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for an advance copy of the statement. In fact, I received it yesterday when she made an appeal entitled, “Seeking common ground in Parliament”. Where did she make that appeal? Not in Parliament, but in a small room just down the road. It is now clear: the bold new deal that the Prime Minister promised is little more than a repackaged version of her three times...
