European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: the Minister in Committee. I can only think that the Government want to retain some wriggle room for the future. That suspicion was strengthened when I read in today’s i that the International Trade Secretary has pledged to cut bureaucracy and red tape to promote free trade post Brexit. As we have heard, the Red Tape Challenge removed some equality rights and would have removed...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Alex Sobel: ...take 1,000 NHS workers out of the public sector and place them in a wholly owned subsidiary company. There was a meeting on 29 March to make a decision. After interventions by myself, four other colleagues in Leeds, the trade unions, campaigners and members of staff there was a stay of execution on that decision and it will be looked at again. Therefore we are not quite in the situation...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Iron and Steel: Port Talbot (23 Apr 2018)

Richard Harrington: We continue to work with Tata Steel, Thyssenkrupp, the Welsh Government and Trade Unions to secure a sustainable future for all of Tata Steel’s UK employees, including those at its Port Talbot primary steelmaking plant. Both Tata and Thyssenkrupp have acknowledged the improved performance at Port Talbot over the past 18 months. As the proposed joint venture between both parties...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Agriculture (23 Apr 2018)

Caroline Lucas: To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, with reference to the document EU Exit Analysis Cross Whitehall Briefing, dated January 2018, what assumptions were made when modelling for the impact on gross value added in the agriculture sector of exiting the EU under a Free Trade Agreement scenario.

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: order”.—[ Official Report, 19/1/17; col. 390-1.] That case needs to cover, as we have heard in the debate, a whole range of our international commitments, not just to the United Nations, which I passionately believe in, but also our obligations to NATO and to the World Trade Organization. Of course, it also means making absolute common cause with like-minded...

Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Colin Clark: Also, the trade unions and their representatives have to be very careful that they base what they are saying on science, not anecdotal evidence. I have heard one or two things said that made me very worried; I will not say that it was scaremongering, but they undermined people’s confidence in what is absolutely essential. The people who work in the oil and gas industry do not want to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Andrea Leadsom: ...week. We are, in fact, extraordinarily busy, and I would like to remind her of some of the achievements so far. We have introduced 27 Bills in this Session so far, including the seminal European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and other very important legislation that she mentioned, such as that on the general data protection regulation—I assure her that we are very aware of the impending...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Chris Grayling: ...said before—I say it again today—there will not be physical checks that require every lorry to be stopped at Dover. It is not physically possible to do it, and in today’s world of trusted trader systems and electronic processing of customs information, there is no need for that to happen. I would also say that we are confident that we will deliver, as is our intention, a...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Pay Gap (Companies) (19 Apr 2018)

Jamie Hepburn: I have mentioned the working group on the gender pay gap. One of its early areas of work will be to work with Close the Gap, Engender, the Scottish Trades Union Congress and other relevant bodies to develop a coherent action plan to reduce gender pay gaps across Scotland. If that requires us to make recommendations about legislative change, we will, of course, seek to engage, as we recognise...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...protections. Boris Johnson has described EU workers’ rights as “back-breaking”. Others have contemplated scrapping the working time directive, the agency workers’ directive and the pregnant workers’ directive or even tearing up the precautionary principle under which traders have to prove that something is safe before it is sold—which is of course a key...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Stephen Kinnock: ...devastating for the rest of the country. We have seen a wholesale shift from production into consumption. We have seen a catastrophic collapse of our productivity. We have seen a massive increase in our trade deficit. And, perhaps most damaging of all for the future of our country and our politics, we have seen a fundamental sense of the communities in our industrial heartlands being left...

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Darren Jones: .... The United Kingdom punches above its weight in the global digital marketplace, with £170 billon of turnover and £7 billion of tech investment—twice the amount of any other country in the European Union. However, as we have heard, this is not just about profits; it is also about good-quality jobs, with the average advertised salary for a digital job 44% higher than for a...

Gender Pay Gap (18 Apr 2018)

Harriet Harman: ...not exist without women’s work. Why on earth should women in Tesco put up with £8 an hour on the checkout when men in the stores get up to £11.50 an hour? Although it pains me to say this, the trade unions that need to be part of the negotiations to narrow the pay gap need to get their house in order. How can women members of Unite believe that that union will champion...

Leaving the EU: Veterinary Profession in Wales (18 Apr 2018)

Therese Coffey: animals to reduce the spread of antimicrobial resistance. Vets maintain, improve and assure our world-leading animal welfare standards. As has been eloquently pointed out, vets also facilitate trade and, we hope, the growth of trade in animals and animal products through the process of certifying, verifying and inspecting export and import consignments. Finally, they ensure food safety,...

Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Hannah Bardell: the Assembly’s first sitting this year. At the Irish ambassador’s reception, he made a powerful speech about the work of the Council of Europe and its importance post-Brexit, particularly for trade and international relations, as well as the continuation of campaigns for human rights and democracy. Many people do not realise that the Council of Europe brought an end to the...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Charities: Lobbying (18 Apr 2018)

Steve Reed: ..., Media and Sport, what recent steps he has taken to ensure that charities have access to clear advice on the effect of the provisions of the Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Act 2014.

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence (18 Apr 2018)

Jackie Baillie: ...this change and maximise its potential benefits, but we need to stay in control. We should be shaping how automation works for us, rather than allowing artificial intelligence to shape us. That means working with the trade unions and working alongside employers to dictate how best artificial intelligence can fit into our economy to guarantee that we get the most that we can from such...

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [HL] - Report (17 Apr 2018)

Baroness Randerson: .... It would do no harm to specify it in the Bill. The amendment allows the Secretary of State complete discretion to add other organisations as he sees fit. My earlier amendment did not include the trade unions. Having tabled the amendment, I looked at it the next day and thought, “Oh, there’s no reference to the trade unions”. At a meeting this morning, it was pointed out...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Ruth Smeeth: ...who would dare to tell me that people like me have no place in the party of which I have been a member for over 20 years, and which I am proud to represent on these Benches. My mum was a senior trade union official; my grandad was a blacklisted steelworker who became a miner. I was born into our movement as surely as I was born into my faith. It is a movement that I have worked for,...

Leaving the EU: Future Trade Remedies (17 Apr 2018)

Bill Esterson: ...means cheaper goods for consumers—as I have heard him say on countless occasions—because the workers whose jobs are at risk are consumers as well. No job means no wage to buy the goods. A lack of trade defence is bad for producers, workers and consumers, yet that is what there has been far too often. My hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough (Gill...
