Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward (26 May 2016)

Emma Harper: ...chamber and I look forward to making many more contributions over the parliamentary session. I remember watching the opening of the Parliament in 1999 from 6,000 miles away, when I worked with the theatre trauma team at a Los Angeles hospital. There, I was an immigrant, I worked with immigrants and I was welcomed as an immigrant. Indeed, healthcare across the world depends on immigrants....

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Tony Baldry: ...Bill being debated today. The Bill’s proponents claim it will remove competition from the NHS and guard against ‘privatisation’ by repealing key clauses of the 2012 Health and Social Care Act. We believe this would be a backwards step for patient care, reorganising the NHS in a top-down way at a time when it needs to be looking ahead to the huge challenges of the future. These were...

Human Rights — Debate (2 Dec 2010)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...world, people face the risk of imprisonment, torture, sexual violence, forced labour-which is modern day slavery-displacement or disappearance if they attempt to express their views openly or to practise their religion freely, or even, in some cases, if they mistakenly say or wear the wrong thing or are in the wrong place. Terror, ideology, caste, ethnic superiority, systematic abuse of...

Speaker's Statement: Economic Affairs and Work and Pensions (8 Jun 2010)

Kate Green: ...Urmston. I think that mine is the first maiden speech today. My constituency is, of course, very special. I am deeply privileged to represent it and I hope to serve my constituents well. My first act in Parliament must be to pay tribute to my predecessors, starting with the right hon. Beverley Hughes. Hon. Members will be aware of Bev's tremendous contribution to public life as a Minister,...

Powers of Entry etc. Bill [HL]: Committee (5 Mar 2010)

Lord Selsdon: ..., to withdraw Amendments 1, 2 and 3, but not the amendment to the schedule. That would mean I was dishonest. Amendment 1 withdrawn. Amendments 2 and 3 not moved. Clauses 9 to 12 agreed. Schedule : Acts and secondary legislation containing powers Amendment 4 Moved by Lord Selsdon 4: The Schedule , leave out the Schedule and insert- "SCHEDULE Section 3Acts and secondary legislation...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (6th Day)(Continued) (9 Jul 2009)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: ...libel prohibits all writings and other utterances which tend to bring about hatred or contempt for the king, the Government or the constitution as by law established. Sedition consists of any act done or word spoken or written and published which has a seditious tendency, and done or spoken or written and published with a seditious intent. In 1792, Thomas Paine was convicted for seditious...

Olympic Games 2012: Heritage and Arts Funding (17 May 2007)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: .... I have real concerns over the diversion of lottery funds from good causes to pay for the rising costs of the Games. I am not one of those who believe that Scotland will gain nothing due to the fact that it is 400 miles north of where most of the Games are to be staged, because I think that many young people will be inspired into taking up some form of physical activity, if not, indeed,...

Civil Partnership Bill (1 Jul 2004)

Lord Higgins: My Lords, it would be helpful to discuss Amendment No. 41 with Amendments Nos. 42, 43 and 44, although they cover a most extraordinary range of issues ranging from the Fire Services Act 1947, the House of Commons Members' Fund Act 1948, the Parliamentary and other Pensions Act 1972 and the Theatres Trust Act 1976. I should like to make a couple of general points. The gap between the...

Far East Prisoners of War (Memorial) (28 Oct 2003)

Anthony D Wright: ...for a memorial, others preferred different sites. As the desire grew to ensure that any such memorial should also include a historical record of what happened to the far east prisoners of war and act as an educational resource for present and future generations, it became clear that the best place for it would be in the UK. Before proceeding, I should perhaps explain my interest in the...

Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 (19 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: rose to call attention to the 30th anniversary of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, and to developments in the provision and planning of community care services for disabled and elderly people; and to move for Papers. My Lords, in a happy conjunction of circumstance this debate coincides with the inauguration of the Disability Rights Commission which for the first time...

Prayers: Metropolitan Green Belt (8 May 1996)

Mr Michael Shersby: ...the River Pinn and the last open air lido swimming pool. I know it well. I spent many happy boyhood days on that site, and I swam nightly in that lovely swimming pool, which was used for the 1948 Olympic games. I have a very strong personal attachment to that area of green belt in my constituency. Today, unfortunately, that land is under threat of development by a foreign...

National Lottery (16 Dec 1994)

Mr Toby Jessel: ...not be real. The Minister is right to ask the Director General of Oflot to inquire whether the terms are being strictly adhered to. I do not think that the Press Complaints Commission is a satisfactory body. It does not have enough teeth. I am a member of the Select Committee on National Heritage, which produced its report on privacy and the media 21 months ago. It appeared a month or two...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill (20 May 1992)

Mr Nigel Spearing: ...described as an enthusiastic European, but I put it on record that, since 1948, when I visited Hamburg and helped the Hamburg international youth club to rebuild the Gestapo headquarters into a new theatre, I have been anxious to see the rebuilding of an international Europe on democratic lines. For the benefit of my colleagues who may not know this, I want to make clear my views on the...

National Health Service Hospitals (26 Nov 1987)

Mrs Jill Knight: ...that the number of renal patients is restricted and some cannot be treated at the moment. We know about widespread ward closures and of operations cancelled, sometimes at the door of the operating theatre. Baby Barber received a lot of publicity and some people will think that because of that he had his operation and now has his life. However, there are scores or hundreds of unsung and...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Amendment) Bill: Lifting of All Crown Immunity (9 Jun 1986)

Frank Dobson: ...the concept of Crown immunity is time expired. It has no place in our current society. Crown immunity was first substantially undermined —if that is the right word—by the Crown Proceedings Act introduced by the Labour Government in 1947. It was felt necessary to move with the times and at least give individuals the opportunity and right to sue the Crown for damages. However, the Crown...

Military Bases (1 Mar 1983)

Mr Alan Clark: ..., the Soviet threat, the free world, the SS20 and so on? As my hon. Friend the Minister knows full well, I am fully committed to the principle of the deterrent. I accept the self-evident fact that the Soviet Union will negotiate in a significant manner only when it is confronted by strength and resolution and that the best chance of forcing a reduction in Soviet theatre nuclear weapons is...

Orders of the Day — National Heritage Bill [Lords] (24 Feb 1983)

Mr Andrew Faulds: ...of the funds voted to it in such a way as to do the least damage possible to those requirements. For example, it is common knowledge that the trustee-governed museums were able to cushion the impact of financial stringency in a more rational and responsible and better balanced way than proved possible recently at the Victoria and Albert museum. The man at the Ministry does not necessarily...

Orders of the Day — The Army (9 Jul 1981)

Mr Keith Best: ...armoured divisions, each of three brigades. At first sight that might seem to be a reduction in forces, but one must look carefully at the Brussels treaty. Article 1 of the 1954 protocol to the 1948 treaty that the United Kingdom commitment of forces should not exceed in total strength four divisions and the Second Tactical Air Force". Article 6, however, contains a further commitment to...

Leisure (25 Jan 1980)

Mr James Callaghan: ...longer holidays, cial difficulties which at the present face all able of meeting the challenge which the situation will demand, and affirms its determination to sustain the excellence of the arts, theatres, music and sport, particularly during the financial difficulties which at the present face all those activities. It gives me great pleasure to introduce this subject. I have been asked...

The Arts (10 Feb 1975)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: ..., and reverberate helpfully even in that most mundane of spheres, the balance of payments. It was also the view of the hon. Member for Warley, East (Mr. Faulds), expressed in a paper called a "Practical Arts Policy" in June 1973, that the amount spent on the arts should be doubled. The hon. Gentleman, who, alas, is not present now, is the best Minister for the Arts that we have not got,...
