Written Answers — Treasury: Debts: Advisory Services (26 Feb 2021)

John Glen: ...receive 80% of their usual salary for hours not worked, up to a maximum of £2,500 per month. The Government has increased the overall level of the third grant under the SEISS to 80% of average trading profits, meaning that the maximum grant available has now increased to £7,500. The Government has provided local authorities with £500 million to support people who may struggle to...

Welsh Affairs (25 Feb 2021)

Nia Griffith: ...approach of Welsh Government Ministers determined to make the best decisions for the people of Wales after listening to the scientists and consulting with health boards, local government leaders, trade unions and business. Yet shockingly, the Welsh Conservatives have repeatedly voted against the coronavirus measures, which are designed to protect people and save lives. We have seen the...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Lord Balfe: ...interested in that. Another thing, which probably cannot be debated but should be borne in mind, is that someone got the Government into this mess. This came about because the people drafting the Bill messed it up: it is as simple as that. This is not a policy that is wrong; it is a drafting measure. I hope that steps will be taken to ensure that we are not put in this position again,...

International Trade: High Growth Global Markets (25 Feb 2021)

Bill Esterson: I appreciate that the Minister wants to promote exports to some countries more than to others, but many of our constituents trade with Europe and need to safeguard their existing relationships before going looking for new ones. That is just good business practice. His Department telling exporters to open an office in the EU is not good practice when it is its answer to delays at the border...

Business of the House (24 Feb 2021)

Tobias Ellwood: ...matters again—it does not seem a long time ago that we were debating the whys and wherefores of Huawei. I am pleased to support him in encouraging us to ensure the completion of this Bill, albeit of course with due scrutiny, because it is well overdue. It seeks to establish a new security framework for the UK telecoms sector, and to ensure that telecommunications providers operate secure...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: After Clause 2 - Criminal injuries compensation (24 Feb 2021)

Apsana Begum: ...in criminality become covert human intelligence sources. However, I would have liked this to go much further and, in particular, include safeguards for ethnic minorities, protest movements and trade unions in particular. The amendments outline that no criminal conduct authorisation can be made for a source who is under the age of 18 or is a vulnerable individual unless in exceptional...

Fire Safety Bill: After Clause 2 - Risk based guidance about the discharge of duties under the Fire Safety Order (24 Feb 2021)

Christian Wakeford: ...what we are trying to do today by making sure that our properties and our leaseholders are safe. That is why we need to focus on those who are most likely to be affected. I do not want to see the Bill’s implementation frustrated. It has already taken far too long to get to this point, and we need to ensure that we can proceed. As has been said many times, including by my hon. Friend the...

Coronavirus: Supporting Businesses and Individuals (23 Feb 2021)

Olivia Blake: As we are debating support for businesses and individuals through the covid crisis, I want to tell the story of one of my constituents, a recently self-employed person called Peter. He started trading in 2019, so he cannot claim on the self-employment income support scheme. He also cannot claim universal credit because his wife earns just a little too much, but not enough to cover all the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: North/South and East-west Trade (23 Feb 2021)

Andrew Muir: Thank you. Mr Buckley will probably remember that debate. It touched on the Trade Bill that was being brought forward, which was a breach of international law. That was the context. An extension to the current grace periods is one thing that the Alliance Party has been pushing for. It has also been pushing for a veterinary agreement between the UK and the EU, or, in its absence, a bespoke...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion C2 (as an amendment to Amendment 6F) (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ..., Lady Jones, I pride myself on my boring consistency on some of these issues—perhaps the Minister’s office has trawled back through Hansard. I hope the desire that the UK will be seen as a trading nation of the highest standards has perhaps brought common ground across all parties. If, as the Minister said, that will set the tone for future trading policy and strategy, that is at...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion C (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Grimstone of Boscobel: ...2 February. Standards underpin our quality of life in so many areas and make the UK a safe and fair place to live. For months, I have been reassuring your Lordships—not always with success—that trade deals will not lead to the diminution of standards. But we have come good on our word. We have signed FTAs with 64 countries—which largely entered into effect from 1 January—none of...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion C1 (as an amendment to Motion C) (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Grantchester: ...amendment marks a tremendous step forward for the Government and is to be welcomed. Together, we have built on the initial agreement negotiated in 2019 through the standards amendment to the then Trade Bill that set standards on food, environmental protection and animal welfare into statutory form in trade agreements. That set up the progress that was fulfilled in the then Agriculture...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...opposition and horror to the crime of genocide. There is no difference between us. I also pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Alton, for his work on human rights. Throughout the scrutiny of this Bill, the debate has been about ministerial accountability and parliamentary scrutiny. These Benches originally sought to complement the original amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Alton; we wanted...

Government's Management of the Economy (23 Feb 2021)

Olivia Blake: ..., but a fundamental shift in the character of our labour market. As the economy contracted and people lost their jobs, we saw low-pay zero-hour contracts in sectors where workers had far weaker trade union representation. Labour borrowing or spending did not cause the international crisis and the economic crash. No, the only organisations that could achieve that were the big banks that...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (23 Feb 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...to their head. They have an 80-plus majority and think that they can just boot out everything that they do not like. I am afraid that that is just not true. We have spent four years working on this Trade Bill. For four years, we have been negotiating with Ministers and trying to make the Bill better, and it has been scrapped each time. Now it has come back and I am afraid that we are...

Trade Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A (23 Feb 2021)

Lord Grimstone of Boscobel: ...leave of the House, I will speak also to Motion A1. I will start by addressing Amendment 1D on the Order Paper, in the name of my noble friend Lord Lansley, concerning the parliamentary scrutiny of trade agreements. This is a revised agreement of the previous two that the Commons have decisively rejected. As I have made clear in my previous remarks on this important issue, Parliament plays...

Scottish Parliament: Heat Networks (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (23 Feb 2021)

Alex Rowley: Amendments 3 and 4 seek to embed the just transition principles throughout the bill. The amendments refer to just transition principles as set out in section 35C of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. The principles describe the importance of equity in taking action to reduce net Scottish emissions of greenhouse gases and require that that is done in a way that supports “sustainable...

Scottish Parliament: Heat Networks (Scotland) Bill (23 Feb 2021)

Alex Rowley: ...by the progress that has been made. I hope that I will be back in the next parliamentary session, but I certainly look forward to the Parliament, in the next session, doing the work and taking the bill forward so that, once and for all, we can tackle fuel poverty and invest in training, skills and jobs. That is what we need to see coming through under this new green agenda—jobs. I can...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Feb 2021)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...was thrilled that this would give me and my two sisters choices about work and change everything for future generations of women. In school, my radical English teacher enthusiastically showed me trade union and campaigning leaflets. She proclaimed that maternity leave was a key step for women’s equal employment rights. Her enthusiasm for political change was infectious and I have to...
