Canlyniadau 101–120 o 6544 ar gyfer speaker:Alistair Carmichael

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pleasure to take part in this necessary and timely debate. It is necessary because the common thread that has run through just about every contribution is the lack of transparency and accountability in the way the Home Office goes about its business, and in how it accounts to this House for the way in which it goes about its business. It is timely because, as the hon. Member for...

Asylum and Migration (14 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The right hon. Lady is absolutely right: the justification that we hear time and again from those on the Government Benches for the Rwanda scheme is that it will break the business model of the people smugglers and traffickers. Does she think that providing a voucher scheme for people traffickers is going to break their business model?

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No. 2) Bill: New Clause 1 - Review of the effects of reducing employee and self-employed NIC contributions to zero (13 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Thank you for calling me, Mr Evans—surely it is long overdue that it should be Sir Nigel, but we will go with Mr Evans for today. I stand to move new clause 2 in the name of my hon. Friend the Member for Richmond Park (Sarah Olney). Hon. Members will see that the effect of new clause 2 would be fairly short in its compass. It would compel the Treasury to report to this House its forecasts...

Post Office Legislation (13 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Like others, I thank the Minister for advance sight of his statement but, novelly, I also thank him for advance sight of the Government “top lines to take”. That latter document includes this passage: “So far we have identified up to around 800 cases that are potentially in scope [Note: if we use this number in public we are going to get held to it. There is a risk that we may deliver...

Prisons and Probation: Foreign National Offenders (12 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The number of cases disposed of by our courts is down by 200,000 from its pre-pandemic level—a reduction of 12%. What is the Secretary of State doing to eliminate that backlog? What impact does he think there will be on prison numbers in the event that he is successful?

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Humanitarian Situation in Gaza (12 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Accepting what the Minister says about there being no money due to go to UNRWA until April, can I say to him, however, that for us to continue not to fund UNRWA sends a truly dreadful signal to other countries on the world stage? Canada and Sweden have resumed their funding. Surely we should be attending to this now as a matter of some urgency?

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Dismissal (11 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when his Department plans to bring forward legislative proposals to implement the recommendations of the review entitled The process of police officer dismissals, published by his Department in September 2023.

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Dismissal (11 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when his Department plans to implement the recommendations of the review entitled The process of police officer dismissals, published by his Department in September 2023, which do not require secondary legislation.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Criminal Legal Aid Independent Review (11 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what progress his Department has made on implementing the recommendations of the Independent Review of Criminal Legal Aid, published on 29 November 2021.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Legal Aid Scheme: Solicitors (11 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to page 156 of the Independent Review of Criminal Legal Aid published on 29 November 2021, whether his Department has made an estimate of the cost to his Department of increasing legal aid for criminal defence solicitors by 15% above 2021 spend.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Criminal Proceedings: Legal Aid Scheme (11 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment his Department has made of the implications for his policies of the High Court judgement on the Law Society’s judicial review against the Ministry of Justice, [2024] EWHC 155 (Admin), handed down on 31 January 2024.

Business and Trade: Free Trade Agreement Negotiations: Israel ( 7 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Can the Secretary of State give me some assurance that any free trade agreement with Israel will not allow the importation of goods produced in settlements on the west bank?

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Minister describes locational charging. That made a degree of sense in the days of generating electricity from hydrocarbons, because there was an element of transmission loss, so we wanted to encourage transmission closer to the point of consumption. As we move to renewables, that argument simply no longer stands, because we are not wasting a non-renewable resource in order to generate...

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Mr Paisley. I warmly congratulate the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) on acquiring this time for a debate on a subject that matters to his constituents, my constituents and the constituents of my hon. Friend the Member for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross (Jamie Stone) and the right hon. Member...

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. We have to be a little careful about how we describe that to people in other parts of the world: doubtless, in a week or two, we will all be back here telling everybody they should come and have their holidays in the highlands and islands. However, we are by no means unfamiliar with the phenomenon of the rain that comes straight at you. Certainly,...

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Shetland Islands Council has promoted the idea of a Shetland tariff for years. I understand what the hon. Member says about seeing the energy development; that is something we have lived with in Shetland and Orkney for the past 50 years, as we have kept the rest of the country supplied with hydrocarbons. We have had some significant benefit, but nothing compared with what we could have...

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: My hon. Friend makes an important point. Like the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, my hon. Friend touched earlier on the health aspects of energy costs, which not only impact the family budget for heating the house but have a much wider application. As the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey said, they impact mental health, and have serious...

Energy Rebates: Highlands and Islands — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman; as one would expect, there is not a great deal of difference. The one thing I would start with, if I were in Ofgem, would be multi-rate meters, such as Economy 7 and “Total Heating with Total Control”, which many of our constituents use. The standing charges on those are 69.32p per day in northern Scotland and 69.17p in southern Scotland. Again, we see...

Scotland: Farm-gate Prices ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Whether he has had recent discussions with Cabinet colleagues on farm-gate prices for farmers and crofters in Scotland.

Scotland: Farm-gate Prices ( 6 Maw 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Minister should be aware that his colleagues in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have recently concluded a consultation on contractual relationships in the fresh produce industry. At a time when 23% of dairy farmers doubt that they will continue in business into 2025, will he impress on his colleagues in DEFRA and the Department for Business and Trade that urgent...
