Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of witnesses (20 May 2021)

Dame Vera Baird: It is hard to say because we do not get a lot of victims coming to us and talking about sentencing; they are usually talking more about their own treatment by the justice system. But what I can tell you is that although they are broadly supportive of different sentencing, the briefing that you have probably had—and that we certainly have had from RoadPeace, Brake and...

National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 4 - Consultation and parliamentary procedure (26 Apr 2021)

Sarah Olney: In common with other hon. Members who have spoken tonight and on other occasions, the Liberal Democrats support the broad principles of the Bill.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (13 Apr 2021)

Andrew Griffith: It is kind of you, Madam Deputy Speaker, to call me in this important debate. I will try to reward that by sticking to the topic we are discussing. This is an excellent Finance Bill for a much-needed recovery. The UK is already a great place to start, grow and run a business, but to increase the rate of economic growth in the UK we need to restate and foster the pro-enterprise philosophy and...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (16 Mar 2021)

The First Minister: W e would aim, as we have generally done throughout the pandemic, to confirm, hopefully—or otherwise, if things were not going in the right direction—a week before each of those dates whether changes were going to happen.

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Meg Hillier: I will not give way as I have already taken two interventions. It is easy to make announcements; it is much harder to get the system to deliver on them. There is a will in this House, I think, to deliver on this, but the Government have to stop making cheap headlines. On jobs, only one in 100 young people aged 16 to 24 is benefiting from kickstart. Again, it is a nice headline, but unless it...

Taken as a...

Covid Security at UK Borders (1 Feb 2021)

Jo Churchill: No, the right point is to work as quickly as possible across all the different Government Departments that are involved to ensure that we have the correct policy so that we are doing the appropriate thing, rather than having a blanket ban and then repeatedly coming back and saying, “What about this.
