Bach Commission: The Right to Justice - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2017)

Lord Bach: My Lords, I have extremely limited time. I thank the Minister, whom I always describe as an exceptional Scottish lawyer, for his remarks and for the trouble he has taken to answer the debate. Of course, I thank all other noble Lords who have spoken in the debate. It has been an important and significant event—it could hardly have been otherwise, given the cast list—and I thank...

Pension Equality for Women: South Tyneside Hospital (14 Dec 2017)

Philip Dunne: I congratulate the hon. Member for South Shields (Mrs Lewell-Buck) on securing this debate about the future of South Tyneside Hospital. I pay tribute to the emotion she showed in standing up for her constituents, but I have to say that I was disappointed by the tone she adopted, particularly at the start of her remarks. Frankly, her allegation of conspiracy—trying to paint the issue as...

Pension Equality for Women: Hormone Pregnancy Tests (14 Dec 2017)

Mike Penning: I thank everybody for giving up their Thursday in their constituencies to be here. I have been praised extensively for securing the debate, but I would not have been able to do it without the all-party group—we had 57 signatures. I have constituents whose lives were changed—blighted, completely wrecked—by Primodos, and we have heard of others on both sides of the House...

UK Victims of IRA Attacks: Gaddafi-supplied Semtex and Weapons — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (14 Dec 2017)

Andrew Murrison: I will be as brief as possible, Mr Gapes. Libya is potentially an extremely wealthy country. It has governance issues, to put it mildly, with which the United Kingdom is assisting. Governance falls into this piece nicely, since compensation for victims is certainly a governance thing. I hope very much that, as we continue to put considerable resource into Libya, we will remind our...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Grahame Morris: I thank the more than 30 Members who have participated in the debate, either directly through speeches or in the numerous interventions. I hope that the Minister has taken note of what has been said. I am an eternal optimist, perhaps formed by my experiences, and I think that all sides are going to build momentum and bring this campaign to a successful conclusion. I point out to the Minister,...

Asylum Accommodation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (14 Dec 2017)

Yvette Cooper: I thank all hon. Members from the Select Committee, the Back Benches and the Front Bench who have contributed to the discussion, which I hope has been helpful. I welcome some of the points that the Minister made about the specific provisions they will put into the contracts to try to improve quality. I also welcome his commitment to ensuring that there is proper, respectful and quality...

Poverty and Disadvantage - Question for Short Debate (14 Dec 2017)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for securing this debate and all noble Lords for contributing to this vital Question, just six months on from the appalling Grenfell Tower tragedy. I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Sherlock, for her apology. Tackling poverty, and the root causes of poverty, is a key priority for this Government. As the Prime Minister has said, we are committed...

Vulnerable Children - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2017)

Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde: I thank the Minister for that reply. He has been a Member of the House for such a short time that I must congratulate him on quickly learning the ability to sidestep questions that Members put in debates, but I think a little longer will prove that Members are also pretty experienced at making sure that that does not last and that they come back in on those issues, as I am sure we will. One...

Point of Order (14 Dec 2017)

Joan Ryan: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I fear that I inadvertently misled the House during business questions, when I suggested that hon. and right hon. Members could enjoy the pantomime of “Dick Whittington” at the Millfield theatre this Christmas. In fact, that was the last pantomime that I saw there. If hon. Members wish to attend the Millfield theatre this year, it will be to enjoy...

Foreign Affairs Committee (14 Dec 2017)

Thomas Tugendhat: It is a great privilege and a huge pleasure to be able to give the first Select Committee statement in this Parliament. We are delegated by the House to investigate foreign affairs, and we are reporting back to the House on our findings. It is worth noting that the Foreign Affairs Committee chose to publish its first report of this Parliament on the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya population...
