Canlyniadau 21–40 o 6544 ar gyfer speaker:Alistair Carmichael

Written Answers — Home Office: Deportation: Rwanda (13 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many individuals that have been detained for removal to Rwanda have also been served an (a) notice of inadmissibility and (b) inadmissibility decision.

Global Intergenerational Week 2024 — [Clive Efford in the Chair] ( 9 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The hon. Lady is developing an interesting area of public discourse. Does she agree that one of the most positive developments in recent years has been the creation and growth of the Youth Parliament? I had the opportunity last week to meet Shetland’s two new Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament, Joe Smith and Bertie Summers. I was struck by the fact that although we were talking about...

War in Gaza ( 7 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: In recent months, Israeli forces in Gaza have been responsible for the killing of aid workers, medics and journalists, including British citizens among them, and they have been responsible for the targeting of civilian infrastructure. In these circumstances, what possible basis can there be in law for continuing to supply weapons to Israel?

Pension Schemes ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: When I contacted the Speaker’s Office this morning, I was told there was only myself and the right hon. Member for East Ham (Sir Stephen Timms) down to speak, so I am delighted that we have had a good debate. We have had contributions from no fewer than 10 Members, which, given what is happening elsewhere today, is quite significant. A number of Members made reference to the WASPI issue; I...

Pension Schemes ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I can understand the attractions of such changes for Governments and corporates, but I impress upon the Minister the need to ensure that if changes of this sort are to be made then the first protection always has to be for the beneficiaries. If there is to be flexibility for Governments and corporates to get investment in big infrastructure projects, that is to be encouraged but it should...

Pension Schemes ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for touching on an area that I should perhaps have given more attention to. The most important protection we can give the beneficiaries is through ensuring that there are independent trustees, and that the office of trustee cannot be manipulated by the company. Does the Select Committee have any proposals for improvement in that regard?

Pension Schemes ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That this House has considered pension schemes. I am grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for allowing time for this debate. I last spoke about this issue in a half-hour debate in Westminster Hall on 17 January, and there have since been a number of significant developments, not least the third report of the Work and Pensions Committee, which is a good and substantial...

Pension Schemes ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It pains me to say it, but I think the right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. What might have started with the oil and gas companies is clearly going much wider. I should declare an interest, as I hope to be the beneficiary of a defined benefit pension, if I live that long, having been in the House before the move to career average earnings in 2011. I will not rehearse what I said about...

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: On a point of order, Dame Siobhain. When I intervened, I should have pointed out that I have a declarable interest registered. I apologise to the Chamber for not doing so at the time and I hope the position is now clarified.

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I understand the concerns about housing shortages, which I have in my constituency. The answer to the shortage of housing, however, is to build more houses; it is not to punish what is a very important part of the local economy, including in parts of the country like mine. The advantage of such a tax provision is that it allows for the improvement and professionalisation of the sector, which...

Immigration Update ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Times reports this morning that the number of visas granted for care workers in March this year was 83% down on the figure for March 2023. Does the Minister expect that reduction to continue? If he does, who will do the work that those carers would have done, and what impact does he think it might have on the national health service?

Financial Conduct Authority: Accountability ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I have absolutely no argument with the Minister on that point—it is absolutely sensible—but the fact of the matter is that the regulator was told not once, not twice, but three times, and each time it failed to take the appropriate action. It was sometimes just as basic as putting people through to the wrong extension when they phoned. The truth of the matter is that if my constituent and...

Financial Conduct Authority: Accountability ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That this House has considered the accountability of the Financial Conduct Authority. It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Sir Philip. I welcome the Minister to his place. I know that he has an interest in these issues, and I hope that this debate will be a productive exercise for us all. It may be worth explaining a little bit about how I came to be interested in...

Financial Conduct Authority: Accountability ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. In fact, as I hope will become clear as my remarks develop, the way that the FCA is going about its duties at the moment is working for nobody. It is clearly not working for the communities most directly involved, for the financial services sector or for members of the public such as my constituents, who have been left to beat their head against a brick...

Financial Conduct Authority: Accountability ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am delighted and relieved to see the hon. Gentleman in his place; he is absolutely right. The engagement of the average constituent—I am legally qualified, but I include myself in that—with the financial services sector is often a matter of supreme consequence. Very often, they have to rely on the judgment and expertise of the people with whom they are dealing, who are regulated by the...

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 Mai 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I know that you, Mr Speaker, want to join me in sending condolences to the friends, family and colleagues of our former colleague, Lord Andrew Stunell, who served with exceptional diligence and grace as MP for Hazel Grove in this House, and who passed away very suddenly on Monday. When the BBC ends longwave radio transmission next year, that will also end access to electricity tariffs such as...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Aid Workers (30 Ebr 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, whether he has made an assessment of the potential merits of opening a coronial inquest into the killing of three British nationals working with the World Central Kitchen by an Israeli drone strike in Gaza.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill: Title (29 Ebr 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am pleased to give this Bill my support and that of my party on Third Reading. It shows what is possible when the House comes together and works collegiately, as we have done. It must surely remain a concern to us all that it is necessary in the first place. I pay warm tribute to the Minister for how he has handled this matter, not just as a Minister but in his time before he came into...
