UK Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 May 2019)

Lord Howell of Guildford: My Lords, there has been a stream of superb speeches—I thought of nipping out for a sandwich but decided I would prefer to hear every speech, including the kind and very gratifying remarks, particularly about the report, for which I thank noble Lords very much. Two themes among many stand out. The first is the question, here at home, of our national role and positioning, with the United...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 5 (21 May 2019)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: My Lords, I am very grateful to the Minister for spelling that out in the detail he did. Many of the points he raised provide some reassurance. I was particularly pleased that he talked about bespoke conditions, and that leases will not be just standard residential or commercial leases but will have a bespoke element that applies specifically because of the unique nature of being within the...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill (Money): Christmas Island Nuclear Testing: Compensation (21 May 2019)

Tobias Ellwood: I begin by thanking the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) for securing the debate. She raises a very sensitive matter, which has been brought to this House on many occasions. Before I go into the detail of the subject matter, it is important for us to understand that this is not a question of the thermonuclear testing and Britain’s decision to use and develop a nuclear...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Arthritis and Employment (21 May 2019)

Bill Grant: I thank the hon. Members for Strangford (Jim Shannon), for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Justin Madders), for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson) and for North Tyneside (Mary Glindon), and my hon. Friends the Members for Moray (Douglas Ross) and for Stirling (Stephen Kerr), for their valuable contributions to the debate. Clearly, hon. Members understand the challenges we face and the need...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 3 (21 May 2019)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, and the Minister. The report was just a hook or mechanism to try to flush out the issue of the distribution of the funds; in itself it will not add greatly to the parliamentary knowledge of income. However, I noticed that the Minister carefully skipped the point I raised about the distribution of funds between Defra and the money...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 2 (21 May 2019)

Baroness Kramer: Can the Minister tell us—clearly not now—what the status is of that car park land? It sits outside the wall of Kew Gardens, so I am not sure how far it is covered by any of the protections he has mentioned, even though it is the obvious site if you were going to have a commercial development. It would be extremely helpful to know what the protection is there.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill (21 May 2019)

Kevin Foster: My thanks go to all right hon. and hon. Members who have contributed to this debate. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Alyn and Deeside (Mark Tami) on an assured début at the Dispatch Box. As a still relatively new Minister, it is nice to congratulate someone who has served for less time than I have. The restoration and renewal of this historic Palace of Westminster is our duty to...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Debt Collection Letters — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

John Glen: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham. I thank the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) for raising the important issue. I read his article in The Times Red Box today and I have looked into the matter in some depth. I hope that I will be able to respond to his core request. The right hon. Gentleman is committed to helping to improve the lives of those...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 1 (21 May 2019)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister has been extremely courteous and accepted interventions from all sides of the House, which is very good of him. He may be regretting the briefing he provided for us before Second Reading, at which he was unwise enough to say, “I hope some of you are going to take an interest in this Bill and we get enough speakers”. He may have put his head into the...

Secondary School Standards: East Cleveland: Intimidation in Public Life — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 May 2019)

Simon Hart: I thank colleagues and particularly the Minister and the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith), for their contributions. Obviously, numerous people are interested in this topic. Perhaps we can look at devising a mechanism by which all the disparate views and proposals can be tied together. It has been suggested to me that a Speaker’s Conference would be...

British Steel - Statement (21 May 2019)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for repeating the Answer given in the other place, although it was curious because it did not seem to address any of the points that could bear on the Question which the Secretary of State was asked. British Steel is our second biggest steel maker and one of only two integrated steel-making sites in the UK. As the only UK steel plant which produces...

Procedure Committee - Motion to Agree (21 May 2019)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, to come back on the remarks from the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, I hope we have learned a few lessons from the other place. It is possible to hear much too much from the Speaker, as well as too little.
