Australia Free Trade Agreement - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2022)

Lord Udny-Lister: ...not create any new permissions for imports from Australia, and that our stringent world-class import requirements and independent food regulations all remain. Perhaps it is for some an inconvenient truth, or it simply goes against the Brexit-bashing narrative to which some have become accustomed, to accept—as we should all proudly accept—that the UK is already globally renowned for our...

Department for Work and Pensions: Cost of Living (5 Jul 2022)

Stephen Timms: ...yesterday that the headline rate of benefit for someone who is unemployed is now 13% of average earnings, and that that is the lowest level it has ever been. That is lower, I think, than when Lloyd George introduced unemployment benefit for the first time in 1911. Nobody should be surprised that so many are having such a hard time; there is no resilience in the support that is being...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill (27 Jun 2022)

Stella Creasy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash). He brought to mind the importance of the warning that George Orwell gave us not to confuse nationalism with patriotism, which I think we all need to bear in mind during this debate. He wrote: “One prod to the nerve of nationalism and the intellectual decencies can vanish, the past can be altered, and the plainest...

Standards of Behaviour and Honesty in Political Life - Motion to Take Note (23 Jun 2022)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, I am reminded listening to this debate of the opening words of Francis Bacon’s essay on truth: “‘What is truth?’ said jesting Pilate, and would not stay for an answer.” We know that democracy depends on an open debate about what truth is, and respect for reasoned argument and for evidence. It is partly the move away from that recognition of and respect for reasoned debate,...

Government Food Strategy (13 Jun 2022)

George Eustice: The environmental issues around livestock production are more complex than some would have it. The truth is that permanent pasture has an important role to play in seeing the restoration of nature and the recovery of biodiversity in the farmed landscape. Livestock production done well, particularly in pasture-based systems, has an important role to play in rekindling that biodiversity in...

Address to Her Majesty: Platinum Jubilee (26 May 2022)

Jim Shannon: ...the value of doing small things with great love”. How much Her Majesty’s words have encouraged me to live my faith in a respectful, personal yet open way, attempting at all times to speak the truth in love. I know that many of us who love this institution—this House, this wonderful tradition we have here—will also love the lady herself and will be concerned that the Queen’s...

Economy Update (26 May 2022)

Rachel Reeves: ..., but the industry said that it would not even change its plans. Then the Government said that a windfall tax would be “un-Conservative”. It is so un-Conservative that Margaret Thatcher, George Osborne and now this Government are doing exactly that. Finally, the Chancellor said that it would be “silly” to offer help now, given that he did not know the full scale of the challenge....

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Ed Miliband: ...bad the geopolitical instability? Is that however large the crisis and however gigantic the windfall, taxation must not change? That proposition was rejected by Margaret Thatcher, Geoffrey Howe and George Osborne—remember him?—all of whom levied windfall taxes. Who else do we see supporting a windfall tax today? I have to say, it is a pretty big tent: John Allan, the guy who runs...

UK Diagnostics Industry and Covid-19 Recovery (10 May 2022)

George Freeman: I have until half-past? I will not detain the House unnecessarily, but that means that I do not need to rush quite so much. If we cast our minds back to January and February 2020, the truth is that we were confronting completely unprecedented national decisions and emergencies. There was no playbook for this. Sadly, I was unable to bring my expertise in this sector to the Government at the...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Household Budgets: Food Prices (28 Apr 2022)

George Eustice: ...we are going to have the next meeting of the UK Agricultural Partnership at the James Hutton Institute, which approached me to host that event, and we look forward to it. On her wider points, the truth is that after the 2016 referendum household spending on food actually went down, but food prices have always been governed principally by the price of energy and by exchange rates.

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Shared Prosperity Fund (27 Apr 2022)

Richard Lochhead: ...in funds that we required from the EU replacement funds is manufactured SNP grievance. However, those issues are being highlighted throughout the UK. I noted previously that former Tory chancellor George Osborne has said that the current allocations are unfair. The Welsh First Minister, Mark Drakeford, said on 13 April that his nation stands to lose out by £1 billion over three years...

Referral of Prime Minister to Committee of Privileges (21 Apr 2022)

Ian Blackford: ...know by now that democracy and decency are under assault the world over. If we fail to defend these values in every single institution we are part of, these values will decay and decline. It was George Orwell who famously said: “Political chaos is connected with the decay of language”. I know that people are deeply fearful about just how real that prophesy has felt in the last few...

Easter Adjournment (31 Mar 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...draw attention to it and is a writer of plays and so on. We have to ask ourselves how an innocent man ended up in Guantanamo Bay, other than through the atmosphere created by the war on terror by George Bush and others before 2003. Then we have to ask ourselves about how we get to the truth of these matters, and this is what I want to conclude with. The truth about these matters is that...

Health and Care Bill: Clause 35 - Report on assessing and meeting workforce needs (30 Mar 2022)

Wes Streeting: ...strategic framework for workforce planning—[Interruption.] My hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South (Karin Smyth) cannot wait; she is watching her inbox daily, waiting for it to arrive. The truth is that this is inadequate. Previous iterations of the framework have not quantified the staffing numbers needed. The Secretary of State was recently unable to confirm when he appeared...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Investment in Renewables: Household Energy Bills (29 Mar 2022)

George Freeman: I can assure my hon. Friend that lots of ideas have been put to Treasury colleagues. The truth is that the falling cost of UK renewables, with offshore wind now down 60% through the contract for difference, is the best protection against global supply chain volatility. This country has led the way. In the past 30 years, we have grown the economy by 78% and reduced emissions by 44%. The...

Non-commissioned Exempt Accommodation (23 Feb 2022)

Karen Buck: ..., including through schemes such as Supporting People that simply no longer exist. As a consequence, many of those people are left adrift, as my right hon. Friend the Member for Knowsley (Sir George Howarth) said, at the bottom end of a private rented sector that is unregulated, as has been well documented, or in conditions that are now classified as being part of exempt accommodation. If...

Business, Energy and Industrial strategy: Parkinson’s Disease (22 Feb 2022)

George Freeman: Yes, I would be delighted to meet the hon. Gentleman. He makes an important point. The truth is that the next frontier in neurodegenerative science will be a mixture of neural pathways, neural mapping, digital science and deep-tissue phenomic and genomic science, which is why I was recently in Switzerland at the institute of neuroscience in Lucerne to see whether we can establish a collaboration.

Gender Recognition Act — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (21 Feb 2022)

Kirsty Blackman: Thank you, Sir Christopher—I thank Sir George, too—for chairing this debate. I also thank the hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Elliot Colburn). He commented that he needed to be brave to bring forward the debate, or words to that effect, and I appreciate that he chose to do so—it was indeed a brave thing to do. This is a really important issue. We must make change,...

Holocaust Memorial Day (27 Jan 2022)

Nicola Richards: .... They campaign tirelessly against those who try to deny or distort the holocaust and they help survivors share their testimony with anyone who will listen. I also commend the innovative work of George Salter Academy, in my own constituency, as part of the University College London Beacon School programme—a flagship initiative led by the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education. They are truly...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 103 (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Sentamu: ...asks the Secretary of State to prepare an action plan and to show how it is being implemented or otherwise, so it is not asking that which is beyond common sense. I take your Lordships back to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In front of him is a police officer who was responsible for setting alight a young man. The young man dies...
