The Oxford-MK-Cambridge Arc (12 Jul 2016)

Iain Stewart: ...or an understanding of the wider implications. There is a clear need for the thousands of already agreed planning applications to be brought forward.

EBacc: Expressive Arts Subjects — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (4 Jul 2016)

Margaret Greenwood: ...would hotly dispute—and that the expressive arts subjects of art, music, drama and dance are of secondary importance. I believe that nothing could be further from the truth. Through the arts, pupils can explore ideas in the most imaginative of ways. They can develop their powers of verbal and non-verbal expression through physical theatre, painting, music and dance, and can gain an...

Bangladesh (28 Jun 2016)

Hugo Swire: ...them. The UK will continue to engage constructively with all parties in Bangladesh, and with international partners, to work towards that end.

Fiona Hyslop: ...about the fact that, in some places, people voted to leave out of a sense of powerlessness and a need for change. We must think through the consequences of that. Patrick Harvie was correct to identify that space has been provided for division, fear and hatred to be engendered, and that must be confronted face on in all our politics as we move forward. Christina McKelvie talked about the...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Jun 2016)

Lord Nash: ...lives could be improved. It was inspirational, and I was very impressed by the young people.

Maria Miller: ...piece of advice on which I will be interested to hear the Minister’s response, as well as the response on police training.

Someone said earlier — maybe from the Ulster Unionist Party — that it is a big commitment from our society to say that we will have the most...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jun 2016)

Baroness Grey-Thompson: ...find it almost impossible to get to work or even to have a social life and be an ordinary member of the public.

I would not want to exclude...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Steve Double: ...Bill. This is an incredibly exciting time for the country as we push forward towards a modern transport revolution, which—most excitingly—includes the potential for the UK’s first commercial spaceport. I shall return to that point later. The magnitude of the progress we are poised to make becomes very clear when we consider the many years of neglect our transport system...

Bus Services - Question for Short Debate (11 May 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: The noble Baroness may have had sight of my speech in that regard.

Bis Sheffield/Government Departments Outside London (9 May 2016)

Kevin Foster: ...the country, with some of the best schools. There would also be a huge cost saving to the Government if it located jobs there and not in central London. It is worth remembering that when we free up office space in central London, it does not mean that jobs are lost there; in many cases, within a short period, those buildings in London have more people working in them, at a higher salary,...

Backbench Business - Voluntary Sector: Faith Organisationsbackbench Business (5 May 2016)

Anna Turley: ...(Jeremy Lefroy) mentioned some important points that affect a lot of civil society groups—not just faith-based groups— and they include the huge issue of long-term security of funding; training and support; and the space to be who they are, something that struck me in particular. Civil society groups play a different role from public services. They are not an arm or an agent...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Investigatory Powers Commissioner and other Judicial Commissioners (28 Apr 2016)

John Hayes: ...seriously. Along with the safeguards added earlier in the Bill, oversight plays an important part in making sure that we have the checks and balances that we all seek. In that respect, there is space for an informed debate about the balance that we are seeking to achieve, as the hon. and learned Gentleman suggests. The roles of the Executive and of the judiciary, which we have already...

Backbench Business — Court Closures (24 Mar 2016)

Helen Hayes: ...the move to Camberwell will actually work in practice. There is time, within the current lease, to make a proper plan for Lambeth: to work out the role new technology can play in making our justice system more accessible; to work out the physical space necessary to accommodate an efficient court; and to plan properly for the transition. There is no evidence in the closure programme that...
