Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Regulation (23 Feb 2017)

Alex Cunningham: That is useful. However, I share Stockton Borough Council’s concern at the fact that a taxi driver whose licence had been revoked following inappropriate conduct with young female passengers was able to go on working for the same company, driving a minibus. There are countless other examples, including examples of sex offenders doing likewise with public service vehicle licences. When...

Criminal Finances Bill: Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs: removal of restrictions (21 Feb 2017)

Richard Arkless: ...will wait with bated breath. Unexplained wealth orders will be available to the courts when assets appear disproportionate to known legitimate income.

That is not to say that taxi driving is not a potentially lucrative trade, but the asset could certainly be disproportionate to that person’s...

Ultra Low Emissions Vehicles (1 Feb 2017)

Andrew Jones: ...new emissions limits from 2019. Colleagues have highlighted the importance of tackling air pollution, particularly in our larger cities and towns.

Air Quality — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (15 Dec 2016)

Neil Parish: ...the number of electric vehicles is going up, they still make up only about 1% of our vehicles. In Norway, about 25% of vehicles are electric. There are lots and lots of ways to go. We talked about buses and taxis. But we must make sure that we all work together, because in the end when a man, woman or child is walking down our streets in London or across the inner cities of this country,...

Disability Equality Training (Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Drivers) Bill (18 Nov 2016)

Colleen Fletcher: I have had some dealings with visually impaired people—friends and constituents—and can only reiterate everything that my hon. Friend has said. They tell me that taxis are essential to disabled people’s independence because many are unable to drive or use public transport. The emotional impact of facing discrimination and confrontation when trying to carry out everyday...

Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

Tommy Sheppard: .... They spend much more time at home than their able-bodied peers, which means that their household bills are greater.

We also know that some people are using this money to buy medical supplies not available on the NHS for their condition....

County Court Judgments (16 Nov 2016)

Chris Evans: ...of reform. I have always said that such reform would be a win-win situation: a win for the lenders because they would know to whom they were lending, and a win for the consumer because lenders would drive down their prices. I have been campaigning for real-time credit scoring since I came into Parliament, and I thank him for fully supporting the campaign, but that is for another day. I...

Scottish Parliament: Accessible Hospital Transport (10 Nov 2016)

Alexander Stewart: ...transport link between the two establishments before the introduction of the 333 bus service, so from time to time we had ludicrous situations in which medical staff, patients and even records were taxied between Perth royal infirmary and Ninewells hospital. Moreover, time and again, my council constituents told me that getting to an appointment from Perth could mean having to take up to...

Policing and Crime Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (9 Nov 2016)

Baroness Berridge: My Lords, in moving Amendment 214C, I shall speak also to Amendment 214CB, both of which relate to drink-driving law. Let us imagine a world where you can pop to your GP and get a prescription for cocaine. If you want to lose weight, you not only have the choice of the 5:2 or the Atkins diet, but amphetamines are also prescribed by your doctor. On television there are advertisements of the...

Tax: Avoidance and Evasion - Question for Short Debate (13 Sep 2016)

Baroness Kramer: ...part of what is called the sharing economy—Uber might be a good example. Distortions come into the picture because, in a sense, you have what looks like a very small company. For example, Uber does not own a single taxi or have a single driver as an employee, just as Airbnb, which is essentially a global hotelier business, does not own a single hotel room or employ a single hotel...

Paris Agreement on Climate Change (7 Sep 2016)

Mary Creagh: .... There is a range of reporting mechanisms, and I see it as the job of the Committee to point out where we think things are going wrong. We could see a whole range of policies that would help drive low-emission vehicle uptake, and local authorities had a range of innovative ideas, particularly in the area of fleet procurement. The Government are probably the largest buyer of vehicles in...

Policing and Crime Bill - Second Reading (18 Jul 2016)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...no illusions that there is more to do. There are still far too many victims of crime, and police forces continue to face many challenges and demands on their necessarily finite resources. We need to drive further reform in order to build more capacity and capability to tackle the scourges of child sexual exploitation, modern slavery, online fraud, terrorism and the many other threats to...

Capsticks Report and NHS Whistleblowing (13 Jul 2016)

Rosie Cooper: ...findings are clear: from 2010 to 2014, the trust’s pursuit of foundation status was its sole priority. The review compares LCH to Mid Staffs on the basis of the brutal tunnel vision that led to an unsafe drive for savings at all costs, compromised the quality of patient care, fostered bullying and harassment of staff on an industrial scale, and made possible the culture of...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (29 Jun 2016)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: .... I have seen it myself. You get on to the bus and you see the way some people abuse bus drivers. It is dreadful. I come from a family of cab drivers. All my family, other than me, have driven black taxis in London, so I know the problem of dealing with people. Bus driving is a very difficult job, and bus drivers deserve our support. The amendment could apply to all sorts of things, not...

Scottish Parliament: Euro 2016 (Scottish Match Officials) (28 Jun 2016)

Brian Whittle: ...chosen discipline, often over a number of years and at their own expense. It takes a serious level of commitment and discipline to achieve those qualifications, and that continuing thirst for knowledge and drive for self-betterment is the reason behind any individual or team success.

Wales Bill (14 Jun 2016)

David Davies: ...that principle that was certainly accepted at the time. I and others had genuine concerns about the Welsh Assembly. One of my concerns was that, having got the Assembly, we would have a constant drive to give it extra powers, and that does seem to be what has played out over the past 17 or 18 years. My concern was that that could undermine the Union of the United Kingdom, and I therefore...
