Collectively, between our two countries, we took the hydrocarbons out...

District Councils - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...will deal with some of the specific issues raised later. The council of the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, Pendle, is set to receive more than £4.5 million over the course of the Parliament, around 13% of its total core spending, but we need to explore every possible option to support the creation of even more homes for our communities.

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (18 Oct 2017)

Baroness Sugg: ...that debate about the length of the licensing process and the insurance cost for smaller satellites—and, indeed, nano satellites. This amendment gives me the chance to explain the work that the UK Space Agency is already doing to improve the current licensing regime under the Outer Space Act.

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (16 Oct 2017)

Lord Tunnicliffe: ...practicable”. That is a very widely used concept in the safety world—a complex concept that weighs benefits against risks and costs. I shall take a view of the benefits of the Bill. The Minister quoted the importance and value of the space industry to the United Kingdom, and I would not in any way demur from that, but we are not talking about creating it or not, or the space...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Hamwee: ...depending on your point of view—where national security is concerned, but that does not mean that no information can be released, even if it is broad brush.

Part of our job is to...

Devolution (Constitution Committee Reports) - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Bruce of Bennachie: ...EU for many people was that it would act as an umbrella to accommodate and moderate the forces of nationalism. To some extent, that was why the EU was created in the first place. The EU provided the common space to move forward the peace process in Ireland. For many years, the SNP sought to blunt the barb of separatism by calling for independence in Europe, thus reassuring unionist...

Scottish Parliament: Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (5 Oct 2017)

Colin Smyth: ...is nothing great about the treatment of animals in a travelling circus, from either an ethical or an animal welfare point of view. The animals are faced with cramped and restrictive accommodation, without the space to recreate their natural behaviour, to explore, to socialise and to find food as they would in the wild. From stress, to ligament damage, to disease, the behavioural,...

Scottish Parliament: Air Quality (27 Sep 2017)

Roseanna Cunningham: ...;s move towards buying the lowest-emitting buses. Those new buses mean a step change in emissions performance, with a better offer for passengers, thereby making buses an attractive mode of choice.

Scottish Parliament: Youth Football (26 Sep 2017)

Aileen Campbell: ...that we will seek to audit the most effective and practical way to further embed the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into policy and legislation, including by exploring the option of full incorporation.

English Baccalaureate: Creative and Technical Subjects - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...to be a test at the end of it to be recorded into the school statistics. How can we return to the days when all was not well with the educational world but at least there was time in the school day for music, drama, exploration and curiosity? What has happened to woodwork, metalwork, cookery and needlework? Many schools have dismantled the labs and kitchens, disposed of the chisels and...

Local Housing Need - Statement (14 Sep 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...appraisal of how many homes an area needs. But it should not be mistaken for a hard and fast target. There will be places where constraints such as areas of outstanding natural beauty or green belt mean there is not enough space to meet local need. Other areas may find they have more than enough room and are willing and able to take on unmet need from neighbouring authorities. That kind of...

Local Housing Need (14 Sep 2017)

Sajid Javid: ...needs, but it should not be mistaken for a hard and fast target. There will be places where constraints, such as areas of outstanding natural beauty or national parks, mean that there is not enough space to meet local need. Other areas may find that they have more than enough room, and they may be willing and able to take on unmet need from neighbouring authorities. Such co-operation...

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (12 Sep 2017)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...a permanent mirroring with the UK following EU rules and regulations from the outside without a voice in their formulation, as with Switzerland and Norway?

Scottish Parliament: European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Michael Russell: ...promises of the leave campaign. In its recent publication “Securing Wales’ Future”, the Welsh Government made interesting suggestions about decision-making frameworks at the European level. It said that they should replicate the codecision making that presently exists at EU level, with the four nations of the UK being equal partners in the process. We are keen to explore...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Space Sector (12 Sep 2017)

Barry Sheerman: The Minister probably knows that precision engineering companies in Huddersfield are very much involved in the Mars probes and the space programme, but does he know that they are increasingly worried, as is the University of Huddersfield, about the future of partnerships across Europe and the funding from Europe that makes that exploration and the existence of those cutting-edge companies...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (6 Sep 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...and young people. It will be able to identify gaps in provision, identify best practice, and work with schools to understand how they are delivering financial education, in which lessons that is taking place, and explore further the barriers to school involvement. The Government are clear, however, that the school curriculum and monitoring of school performance is a matter for the...

Jobcentres and the DWP Estate — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2017)

Paul Sweeney: ...trying to set up a constituency office that there is ample opportunity out there to utilise alternative measures to maintain the footprint by co-operating with other agencies occupying the same space.

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Jul 2017)

Baroness Buscombe: ...-facing dashboard could be rolled out. I appreciate the purpose of the noble Baroness’s amendment and the careful wording she has chosen. I recognise that there may be a role for the single financial guidance body in this space in the future, not least in encouraging its customers to use these helpful tools. However, as I sense the noble Baroness appreciates, at such an early stage...

Armed Forces: Thameslink (19 Jul 2017)

Helen Hayes: ...to mitigate the impact of services they should be able to rely on. New rolling stock is slowly being introduced, and while to some extent those trains provide a more comfortable environment with more standing space, they are often just as overcrowded as the old ones. There is a view among many passengers that they should have been designed like Overground trains, with seating at the...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...which has such a distribution system, tells me that it is unable to get to everyone who is at risk of heroin overdose. I would like it to have the funding it needs to reach more people and prevent more deaths. The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs also recommended the drug consumption clinics that I have mentioned, and discussions with people in the sector and with other specialists...
