Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 15 (13 Jan 2021)

Lord Cormack: ..., like him, I support it. I support its basic principle. I support what the noble Baroness, Lady Massey of Darwen, said. I was very glad the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, began by paying tribute to the police and those who keep us safe, following that splendidly spirited speech from the noble Baroness, Lady Manningham-Buller, on Monday, when she talked about the bravery of many who serve in...

Medicines and Medical Devices Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 3 (12 Jan 2021)

Lord Judge: My Lords, I apologise to the House; this is the first time I have spoken on this Bill and I have not been able to speak earlier in the proceedings, so I will try to be brief. I also assume that, notwithstanding the recent vote on sunset clauses, the Minister’s response during the debate indicates that the Government will not be very interested in leaving it in the legislation. This Bill’s...

Public Health (6 Jan 2021)

Richard Burgon: Just over a month ago, this House voted on the tier system. I voted against. It was clearly inadequate to get the virus under control. I warned that a lockdown would be needed in the new year if the Government took their foot of the brake, but they ploughed on, recklessly ignoring their own scientists, adding to our shameful death toll. I voted against the tier system also because of the lack...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (30 Dec 2020)

Lord Bethell: My Lords, I am enormously grateful to noble Lords for an informed, thoughtful and passionate debate. These regulations are incredibly important, but they are clearly not enough to battle the growth of Covid in recent weeks, and the noble Lord, Lord Harris, was entirely right to spotlight the situation in London, which is particularly acute. In Havering, there is a prevalence of 1,500 per...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Mayor's Transport Strategy - Taxis: Mayor's Transport Strategy - Taxis (17 Dec 2020)

Sadiq Khan: ...will help address many of the health, congestion and environmental challenges we face as a city. Accordingly, Policy 1 of my Transport Strategy sets out my aim for 80 per cent of trips in London to be made on foot, bicycle or public transport by 2041. It would be inappropriate for taxis to be included in this 80 per cent target given they do not contribute to our aims to increase Londoners...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Tyres: Air Pollution (11 Dec 2020)

Rebecca Pow: At Defra’s request, the Air Quality Expert Group produced a report considering the whole range of non-exhaust emissions resulting from road vehicles, i.e. tyre degradation, road surface wear and brake wear. https://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/assets/documents/reports/cat09/1 907101151_20190709_Non_Exhaust_Emissions_typeset_Final.pdf Particulate emissions from non-exhaust emissions are estimated...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Roads: Air Pollution (11 Dec 2020)

Rebecca Pow: Defra is supporting work on how air quality is affected by road surface wear and road dust resuspension by gathering evidence needed and feeding in views to inform effective policies. In July 2018 we published a call for evidence[1] to improve our understanding of the extent and impact of emissions from brake, tyre and road wear and potential ways to address them, to inform future policy...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Microplastics: Seas and Oceans (11 Dec 2020)

Rebecca Pow: ...in the marine environment. This research advanced understanding of ways in which microplastics enter the marine environment and highlighted the complex problem of microplastic pollution to the marine environment from various sources and pathways. The Department for Transport is currently commissioning research to better understand tyre and brake wear emissions from road vehicles. It is...

Taxation (Post-transition Period) Bill (9 Dec 2020)

John Redwood: These are urgent and important issues. We heard earlier from the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster that there are various delays to the full implementation of trade arrangements into and out of Northern Ireland as a result of his negotiations. Will they be incorporated into this legislation, and do they provide a brake on the immediate introduction of these complex double-taxation arrangements?

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (1 Dec 2020)

Lord Birt: My Lords, I support the regulations. We understand well that neither this Government nor their predecessors prepared adequately for a pandemic of this nature, and initially the Government responded to the threat in slow motion. The result is one of the world’s highest death rates. However, I shall be more generous than others. In the last month or so, there has been a surer touch, with less...

Public Health (1 Dec 2020)

Laura Farris: I think that any decision the Government made tonight would have left them open to criticism. I cannot improve on what Lord Finkelstein said in his comment piece in The Times in October: “If Boris Johnson persists with targeted measures for small areas, you can complain that the patchwork is almost impossible to understand and you would be right. Yet if he simplifies the whole thing,...

Covid-19: Restrictions on Gyms and Sport — [David Mundell in the Chair] (23 Nov 2020)

Chris Green: Thank you, Mr Mundell. It is fantastic to follow such a good speech from the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell). She captured so much of what the debate is about and what people around the country are feeling. There is a sense that we appreciate something only when it has been taken away. That certainly applies to gyms. Rather perversely, my attendance at the gym...

Scottish Parliament: Tourist Attractions (Support) (12 Nov 2020)

Fergus Ewing: As part of our £2.3 billion package of support to businesses, we have already provided more than £40 million to date, not including provisions through our new £48 million Covid business support as a result of brake restrictions and the strategic framework. I fully appreciate the impact that the pandemic continues to have on the tourism sector. We are continually seeking to find a balance...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (11 Nov 2020)

Baroness Whitaker: Thank you. As I am on the phone, it probably will work. My Lords, I concur that the Bill is necessary, but it is too loose. It is apparently compatible with the Human Rights Act, but other rights could be breached as the Bill stands, and there are considerations relating to public morality and the exercise of democracy that lie behind the Human Rights Act which need addressing. It is not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (Amendment No. 8) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 (9 Nov 2020)

Colin McGrath: Statutory responsibility for scrutinising the regulations lies with the Committee for Health, of which I am also a member. I look forward to hearing about its deliberations later in the debate from its Chair. The Committee for the Executive Office has delivered a consistent message throughout the pandemic that has centred firmly on urging compliance with the restrictions that are in place....

Public Health (4 Nov 2020)

Judith Cummins: Given the near crisis point in the capacity and the ability of the NHS to cope with rising cases and hospital admissions across the country, I believe that action is necessary. I am, however, at a loss as to why the Government have acted so late. This has led to more cases and ultimately more deaths, and means that we now need a longer lock- down that will have a huge human and economic cost....

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Baroness Andrews: My Lords, it is with great pleasure that I join with others in welcoming my noble friend Lady Hayman to this House and congratulate her on her speech. I am sure we will hear many marvellous speeches from her, and it has been good to hear her in this remarkable debate this afternoon. In respect of Part 5 of the Bill, I would simply say that the recent amendment in the name of the noble and...

Pension Schemes Bill [Lords] (7 Oct 2020)

Duncan Baker: If I wrote a headline for this Bill, it would be something along the lines of, “If you want to save the planet, start a pension.” That would chime very well with my hon. Friend the Member for West Worcestershire (Harriett Baldwin), who is encouraging young people to start a pension, as I am myself, but in a roundabout way, this Bill does just that. While the thought of pensions may give...

Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill [Lords]: Text of the 2007 Lugano Convention (6 Oct 2020)

Alex Chalk: If I may respectfully say so, that is an excellent point. That is one of the reasons why we seek to frame things this way, because one of the points my hon. Friend made most powerfully is that there are shortcomings in the Lugano convention. He talked about the Italian torpedo, but there are others, some of which Lord Mance referred to in the other place, for example. How are we to be...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2020-21 (1 Sep 2020)

Nicola Sturgeon: I will start with a brief update on today’s Covid statistics. An additional 154 positive cases were confirmed yesterday. That represents 1.2 per cent of the people newly tested and takes our total number of cases to 20,632. The full health board breakdown is available on the Scottish Government website. However, I draw attention to the fact that 66 of today’s cases are in Greater Glasgow...
