Subsidy Control Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 47 (22 Mar 2022)

Lord Callanan: If the noble Lord is going to write my speeches, he might as well write them for my noble friend Lord Lamont, as well. The answer to the question of my noble friend Lord Lamont, through his spokesman, is the Green Book and Managing Public Money guidelines; I suspect as an ex-Chancellor he knows that very well indeed—probably better than we do. Government Amendments 52 and 53 to Clause 65...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Pedal Confusion: Pedal Confusion (14 Mar 2022)

Sadiq Khan: More up-to-date research into pedal confusion has already resulted in newer buses harnessing subtle design changes to help mitigate this issue. Transport for London’s (TfL’s) Bus Safety Standard (BSS), which has been applied to all new vehicles entering London’s bus fleet since 2019, requires the presence of pedal indicator lights in the driver’s cab, with the aim of reducing...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Lifeboats (10 Feb 2022)

Lord West of Spithead: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the lifeboat accident on the research ship Sir David Attenborough, whether they plan to review legislation relating to (1) hook release problems, and (2) wire and brake failures, leading to difficulties of recovering free-fall life boats once they have been launched onto the water.

Data Protection: Immigration Exemption - Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hamwee: .... When we debated the draft in Grand Committee, we said that we would table a regret Motion but the Government were, of course, aware of the 31 January deadline for producing a measure in response to the Court of Appeal and apparently there was no time for a regret Motion and the usual channels arranged for this take-note Motion. The Government are obviously proper in complying with the...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (25 Jan 2022)

Lord Sherbourne of Didsbury: ...said. Other speakers have said that the House of Commons would never refuse a Dissolution; that was the thrust of the noble Lord’s speech and the speeches of other noble Lords. We are being asked to put in a brake on the power of the Prime Minister, but we are told that the brake will never be exercised. What is the point of that? I come back to my question: what are the most...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Communications related to AECOM Pedal Confusion Research: Communications related to AECOM Pedal Confusion Research (24 Jan 2022)

The BSS 2021 requires “brake...

House of Commons Commission (18 Jan 2022)

Pete Wishart: I will try to be brief, Madam Deputy Speaker. My speaking notes only go for about 50 minutes or so, but I will try to rattle through them as quickly as possible so we can get to the debate secured by the right hon. Member for South Staffordshire (Gavin Williamson). I would like to reiterate some of the questions put by the shadow Leader of the House, the hon. Member for Bristol West...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 22 (18 Jan 2022)

Lord Scriven: ...are discussing the legislative framework for this new system while, out in the real world, the foundations and the bricks are being built. People are in place. Dates are being set.

They have no legitimate powers or approval from...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ajax Vehicles: Procurement (18 Jan 2022)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Vehicles: Air Pollution (12 Jan 2022)

The study...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Pedal Confusion: Pedal Confusion (22 Dec 2021)

Sadiq Khan: There has been significantly more up-to-date research into pedal confusion. As a result of this work, newer buses already harness subtle design changes to help mitigate this issue. Pedal Application Error prevention and recovery was one of several measures evaluated as part of the development of Transport for London’s (TfL) Bus Safety Standard (BSS). There are two published reports on Pedal...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 61 (13 Dec 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, it is a great pleasure and a real responsibility to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay of Llandaff, and her hugely powerful speech. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe, for introducing Amendment 61 in particular. I speak on behalf of my noble friend Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb. She is much more of a lark and I more of an owl—so the timing works for this...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Assembly Business — Executive Committee Business: Direct Payments to Farmers (Simplifications) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2022 (7 Dec 2021)

Clare Bailey: ...are welcome, certainly for farmers, it is extremely disappointing that, for a second year after leaving the EU CAP system, the changes that we are making in Northern Ireland in how we pay directly to farmers remain so insignificant. Despite the fact that there are two climate Bills in the system, the regulations lack any environmental focus whatever. Even at the EU level, the CAP is being...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Scooters: Lighting (29 Nov 2021)

Trudy Harrison: The Government is running trials of rental e-scooters to assess their safety and wider impacts. We require trial e-scooters to meet minimum standards of design, through administrative vehicle orders (VSOs) issued by the Secretary of State under s.44 and s.63 of the Road Traffic Act. The VSO includes an obligatory requirement for e-scooters to have front and rear lights and an optional...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 39 - Use of audio or video links at inquests (18 Nov 2021)

Andrew Slaughter: I thought for a moment that the right hon. Member for South Holland and the Deepings was rising to indicate which of the amendments he is going to support, but we will see. They are all good amendments. I will not trouble the Committee by putting them all to the vote, but with all due respect to the Minister I do not think that the case for them has been rebutted. The failsafe is in amendment...

Scottish Parliament: Road Safety (Falkirk) (18 Nov 2021)

Stephen Kerr: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak to this motion on road safety in Falkirk. Road safety is of paramount importance and, when properly enforced, it saves lives. One of the most important factors in road safety is speed. The road safety charity Brake states that one in three fatal road crashes can be attributed to excess speed and that an average speed reduction of 1mph reduces...

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Examination of witnesses (16 Nov 2021)

Tom Thackeray: I would echo many of the points the others made: detailing objective, sustainable finance taxonomy for the UK including nuclear will be really important over the next few years. More holistically, there is the extent to which the Government can build out their export and skills strategy, taking advantage of the technology developments we are making in a lot of the clean areas....

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 71 (16 Nov 2021)

Paul Scully: The clause sets out the time limits in which the interested party must make an application to the CAT to challenge the subsidy. It is important to set that limit so that we can give legal certainty to public authorities and subsidy beneficiaries. Ongoing lack of legal certainty can be a strong disincentive for public authorities giving legitimate subsidies and for the enterprises agreeing to...

Scottish Parliament: Young Persons Guarantee and National Training Transition Fund (9 Nov 2021)

Michael Marra: ...is the fastest that it has ever been and the slowest that it will ever be. Economic change has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, and climate change demands that, rather than search for the brake, we put our foot on the accelerator to effect further, deeper and more profound change. The early days of this Government’s response do not bode well. The measures that the Government...
