Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Business and Trade: Smarter Regulation Programme Update (16 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: A year ago, the Government established the Smarter Regulation Programme to focus on improving regulation across the UK economy to reduce burdens, push down the cost of living and drive economic growth. Today, I am pleased to be able to update the House on our progress with the publication of two papers. Firstly, ‘Smarter Regulation: One Year On - May 2024’ which details our progress so...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Women: Business (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: In March 2024, the government announced the launch of the Invest in Women Taskforce. Its mission is to make the UK the best place in the world to be a female founder. Since its launch, the Taskforce members have been working with the private sector to begin raising its fund for female founders. This seeks to increase the proportion of investment going to all-female founder teams – which...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Gender Based Violence (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: The department works closely with the Foreign Secretary on many issues, including tackling violence against women and girls in other countries. The UK is a global leader on action to address conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) and has committed £60m since the launch of the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative(PSVI) in 2012. We have also put forward the first ever UK...

Women and Equalities: Community Cohesion (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: In this country, we believe in religious freedom. Everyone should be able to express their identity, faith and beliefs. However, this must be done in a way that respects the rights of others. Community cohesion in many of our towns and cities has been strained in recent months, following the 7 October attacks in Israel. The boundaries of acceptable behaviour in the public sphere are being...

Women and Equalities: Community Cohesion (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: I do agree with my hon. Friend. The Union Jack and the cross of St George are symbols of unity, not division, and of course, as an Essex MP, I am also particularly fond of our county flag. The point is that national pride should be celebrated, not shunned. That is why anyone in the UK is able to fly any of our national flags without needing the consent of their local authority, as per...

Women and Equalities: Community Cohesion (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: We encourage every celebration of the diversity in ethnicity that we have in this country. In particular, the Government want to emphasise equality under the law, the fact that there are not protected groups but protected characteristics, and that everyone should be free from discrimination. We know that in many events up and down the country, including in Northern Ireland, that is what is...

Women and Equalities: Business Start-ups (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: The Government have worked to advance equality of access to start-up opportunities, irrespective of social background or race. We have a range of business support programmes and Government-backed financial support through Help to Grow: Management, growth hubs and the British Business Bank. The success of our endeavours to engage and support diverse business leaders can be seen in the data. In...

Women and Equalities: Business Start-ups (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: It is interesting that a number of people have that perception that they should stay in their lane. This Government do not support any sort of activity that is segregationist. We believe that we must treat people equally under the law. All of our access programmes are available irrespective of ethnicity. People should be encouraged to serve the entire community, not just people who look and...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: Institutions should be able to operate free from ideological pressures. I am delighted that the Equality and Human Rights Commission has retained its accreditation as an A-status national human rights institution, denoting full compliance with the Paris principles, despite Stonewall’s attempt to have it stripped of its status at the UN. As I have said before, Stonewall does not dictate the...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: There is a lot that my Department in particular is doing. We have put out multiple bits of legislation that will help to entrench workplace equality, whether that is around flexible working rights or sexual harassment in the workplace. We are doing more even on the trade side, where we continue to ensure that we have provisions that advance gender equality in our free trade agreements because...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: I thank my hon. Friend for his question. There are various reasons why women and men should be able to access single-sex spaces, and public toilets are no exception. We are updating building regulations so that toilets in non-domestic buildings offer safety, privacy and dignity for all people who use them. There is often confusion between gender-neutral toilets and unisex toilets. We support...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: The Online Safety Act 2023 introduced new offences that criminalise sharing or threatening to share an intimate image without consent, which includes deepfake intimate images. The Government are working to ensure that we are ready to respond to the full range of threats to our democratic processes, including through the defending democracy taskforce. If deepfakes are discovered by users on...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: I wish Leoni every success. My hon. Friend is right to raise this issue. In March, we proudly announced the launch of the invest in women taskforce, whose mission is to make the UK the best place in the world to be a female founder. Since the taskforce’s launch, its members have been working with the private sector to begin raising funds for female founders just like her constituent.

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (15 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: I agree. There is so much misinformation out there and incorrect guidance that creates confusion. I recently had a roundtable with the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, and she and I agreed that sports bodies in the UK need to tackle this area more strongly.

Business and Trade: Export Target ( 2 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: UK exports were £862 billion in the 12 months to February. UK services exports reached a record £472 billion in the same period, which is an increase of 10%—they went up by £42 billion. Businesses, including small and medium-sized enterprises, can access my Department’s wealth of export support at great.gov.uk. That support includes the UK Export Academy, which has had more than 18,000...

Business and Trade: Export Target ( 2 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: I am pleased to tell my right hon. Friend that we are. There are many, many more good statistics, which he will find in the publication my Department produced at the end of January; it contains further good news stories on UK exports. The UK is a global exporting superpower and the world’s second biggest services exporter. Services exports to the European Union are at a record high and...

Business and Trade: Export Target ( 2 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: The Department has declared this year the year of the SME. People often hear news that sounds as though it is just about big business, but SMEs employ most of the people in the UK. We have a network of 160 international trade advisers and our export support services. We have also put in place schemes such as a Help to Grow management course, which 5,290 participants had completed by November....

Business and Trade: Export Target ( 2 Mai 2024)

Kemi Badenoch: We know that a lot of people are disappointed that we closed the trade show programme, but it was a pilot programme and it did not yield the business successes that we had hoped. We are investing in those things that are providing success and demonstrating real benefits. The UK Export Academy is one of them, along with the export support service, as I mentioned, and the international trade...
