Post-18 Education and Funding (4 Jun 2019)

Angela Rayner: I thank the Secretary of State for early sight of his statement. “Augar is the epitaph for Theresa May’s government…slow, wrong-headed, indecisive and, above all, failing in its central objective, to help level up Britain.” This is not my verdict, but that of the Secretary of State’s Conservative predecessor; nor is it a reflection on the panel and all the recommendations it has put...

Food and Feed Hygiene and Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (4 Jun 2019)

Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford: ...whether we want to introduce our own legislation and additional food safety standards which mirror those in the EU or whether we want to go further. That is a commitment—excuse me, I am having a Theresa May moment—that has been made before. I shall touch first on the issue raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, at the end of her remarks about trade. I want to nail that one if I...

Scottish Parliament: Next Steps in Scotland’s Future (29 May 2019)

Richard Leonard: ...Government and the devolved Administrations in Scotland and Wales, that is not because it is a UK Government but because it is a Tory Government. The cabinet secretary noted in his statement that Theresa May has had “no interest in seeing the devolved settlement observed.” However, it is clear that the Scottish National Party Government here does not observe the devolution settlement...

Scottish Parliament: Wind Turbine Construction (Fife) (29 May 2019)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...axing of Scotland’s ability to set Scottish ROCs, the removal of the feed-in tariff regime, the axing of the minimum for the marine energy sector, which was promised by David Cameron and axed by Theresa May without a general election, and the recent restriction on the renewable heat incentive. Therefore, we will take no lessons from the Conservatives about support for the renewable...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Article 50: Article 50 (23 May 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Chair, I am not sure if others have had the opportunity to read this question, but it must be a record for the longest question ever, certainly since I became Mayor. The Prime Minister [The Rt Hon Theresa May MP] could have secured a Brexit deal that protected jobs, the economy and the rights of EU citizens in the UK while respecting the outcome of the referendum. The Prime Minister could...

Devolved Administrations: 20th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (22 May 2019)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...was a very good delegator. “Just draft a Government of Wales Bill for me, will you, Martin?” he said. That is how the Bill came into being. It was presented in this House by Lord Ogmore. It may interest the noble Lord, Lord Bourne, and other noble Lords to know that the assembly I proposed was called the Senedd. Now, 50 years later, we are finally getting there—I have always been 50...

Leaving the European Union (22 May 2019)

Theresa May: I think that the right hon. Gentleman gave the game away when he made it absolutely clear that, as far as he is concerned, the way to get this through the House is for everybody else to compromise to his plan and only his plan. He was very clear that he was not making any proposals to compromise. The Government have indeed compromised. We have recognised that there are issues on which this...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Modern Slavery (22 May 2019)

Sajid Javid: ...the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (CP 100). Copies of the report will be available from the Vote Office and it will also be published on Gov.UK. Under the leadership of the Prime Minister, the rt hon Theresa May MP, the UK has transformed its response to modern slavery over the last five years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 May 2019)

Theresa May: Today marks two years since the Manchester Arena attack. It was a cowardly and sickening attack that deliberately targeted innocent and defenceless children. Members across the House will want to join me in sending my thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of all the victims. I am sure that Members will also want to join me in paying tribute to the emergency services for the...

UK Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 May 2019)

Lord Bilimoria: continue that way, and that Brexit reinforces that’”. In a speech in October, the Foreign Secretary spoke about his vision of the invisible chain.

EU Referendum: Lessons Learned - Question (20 May 2019)

Lord Dobbs: ...binding promise to the voters before the last referendum—that they would decide—it is quite clear that our constitution is not only unwritten but unravelling. There is a growing suspicion that Theresa May is not a direct descendant of Erskine May. Will the Government accept as a priority the need to rebuild that trust which binds our constitution and which we politicians have thrown...

Definition of Islamophobia (16 May 2019)

Wes Streeting: about racism within their ranks, I respectfully say to some quarters of my own party: that is the same silence you demand of me on antisemitism, and it is one you will never receive. Theresa May could have followed the lead of the Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, in backing this definition and left a powerful legacy to detoxify her party and improve the lives of Muslims...

Brexit: Cross-party Discussions - Question (16 May 2019)

Lord Dykes: Did the Minister notice the huge dismay that greeted Theresa May’s astounding proposal to prolong the Brexit agony—a dismay which was led by her own MPs? Rather than leading this miserable and unhappy country through further parliamentary nightmares, is it not high time that the Prime Minister had the wisdom to restore national morale by promising either the revocation of Article 50 or a...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Impact on Food and Drink) (16 May 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: ...the EU—Brexit. Donald Cameron said that we must vote for the deal that is available because it is the only deal. There is a reason why it is the only deal—it is because it is the only deal that Theresa May asked for. In her Mansion House speech in 2017, she drew the red lines that constrained the ultimate deal to the deal that is before us. The deal is rather opaque, because the...

Seema Kennedy:, it is nearly £7 billion—an increase of 5.6% on the previous year. I would like to reassure him that we are definitely not aiming for a one-size-fits-all service.[Official Report, 16 May 2019, Vol. 660, c. 4MC.] I can reassure my right hon. Friend the Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) that we are absolutely committed to training more GPs. In September last year,...

Hares Preservation (14 May 2019)

George Eustice: place a peculiar anomaly and legal uncertainty in some areas that a game pie sold from the freezer by a pub cannot be sold during the months of March to July inclusive even though the hare may have been killed during the winter months. My Bill would replace the 1892 Act with its ban on sale with a modern-day close season prohibiting the killing or taking of hares during the breeding...
