Canlyniadau 161–180 o 6544 ar gyfer speaker:Alistair Carmichael

Cabinet Office: Personal Smartphones: Government Business (18 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: What recent assessment he has made of the prevalence of the use of personal smartphones for conducting Government business by Ministers and officials.

Cabinet Office: Personal Smartphones: Government Business (18 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I may be part of a very small and shrinking group, but I think it is sensible that Ministers, officials and advisers should be able to share their thinking and thoughts in private on occasion. However, the truth of matter is that the constant drip of stories—whether about Boris Johnson, Nicola Sturgeon or anybody else—and WhatsApp messages not being available to hold people accountable,...

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I agree with most of what the Minister is saying, but there is something more that comes into play here, which is the question of light-touch regulation. Light-touch regulation only works if it is possible to proceed on the basis of good-faith acting by both parties, particularly the companies. Where there is evidence of the lack of good-faith acting, as we have with BP and Shell, is it not...

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move, That this House has considered the regulation of defined benefit pension schemes. After the heat of the debate on High Speed 2 that has just ended, I hope that we might be able to generate a little more light. The subject of defined-benefit pension schemes and their regulation does not always lead to that sort of excitement, important though it undoubtedly is. I suppose that in...

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: It absolutely does. Representing a constituency that had the Sullom Voe oil terminal managed by BP for many years, I suspect that the reasons why the hon. Gentleman has Shell pensioners in his constituency and I have BP pensioners in mine are very similar.

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The hon. Gentleman strikes at the reasons why I brought forward this debate. We might benefit from a wider and longer ventilation of the issues at some later stage, but we have 30 minutes today, so let us use it. I had the opportunity to discuss the issues yesterday with the Minister, and he is alive to the concerns. When it comes to regulating pensions, and indeed other similar financial...

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: I almost entirely agree with my hon. Friend. The way in which the BP pension fund works is that the trustees have virtually no discretion up to 5%, and then from 5% to 9% there is a discretionary level. In the last year, the BP trustees recommended 9% but the company refused to pay it. I can see that there might be good reasons why a company does not want to be tied to that discretionary...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners on Remand (17 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many people in prison have been held on remand for longer than (a) six months, (b) 12 months and (c) 2 years by offence group.

Cost of Living: Pensioners (16 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: While we are on energy prices, I am acutely aware that, as we speak, pensioners in my constituency are having to brave serious snow conditions and, because we have the highest level of fuel poverty anywhere in the country, they will feel literally and metaphorically out in the cold. Does my hon. Friend agree that Ofgem has a role to play in the creation of a social tariff, or even a...

Electoral Commission Committee: Party Spending Limits: Impact on the Democratic Process (11 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: Whether the committee has had recent discussions with the Electoral Commission on the potential impact of increased electoral party spending limits on the democratic process.

Electoral Commission Committee: Party Spending Limits: Impact on the Democratic Process (11 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Daily Mirror reported at the weekend that the Conservative party is already spending more on the Prime Minister’s Facebook page and adverts than Donald Trump is spending on his, so the motivation for doubling the party spending limits is pretty clear already. If this cannot be stopped, can the commission at least do more to increase transparency, so that people can see this shoddy...

Rwanda Plan Cost and Asylum System ( 9 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: We do know a few facts here, and one of the facts we know is that the scheme has been in the making for 18 months. In that 18 months, the money that has been spent on it would have employed 6,000 caseworkers in the Home Office. Might that not have been a better way of proceeding?

Horizon: Compensation and Convictions ( 8 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Minister has heard from me previously about the difficulties faced by the executors of my constituent, who was a victim of this scandal and has subsequently died. Ultimately, the difficulty with my constituent’s case was that she had been putting in her own money to make up shortfalls and the executors did not know how much they should settle for, because the Post Office itself had no...

Defence: Protection of Shipping Routes ( 8 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: What recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the Royal Navy in protecting merchant shipping routes in conflict zones.

Defence: Protection of Shipping Routes ( 8 Ion 2024)

Alistair Carmichael: The Secretary of State is absolutely right to point the finger at the Houthis, but we should not ignore the role of Iran in this enterprise. What are he and the Government doing with our international partners to ensure that the merchant marine have the confidence to keep using the Red sea, which is critical to the smooth operating of world trade?

Israel and Gaza (19 Rha 2023)

Alistair Carmichael: Will the United Kingdom Government urge the Government of Israel to ratify the Rome statute and thus become a state party to the International Criminal Court?

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Telecare (19 Rha 2023)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, what guidance she has issued with the Secretary of State for Levelling up, Housing and Communities to local authorities on the costs of moving to digital telecare.

Written Answers — Department for Science, Innovation and Technology: Telecommunications Cables: Copper (19 Rha 2023)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, whether her Department plans to launch a nation-wide public awareness campaign on the withdrawal of copper wire telecommunications.

Treasury: Farm Budgets 2024-25: Scotland (19 Rha 2023)

Alistair Carmichael: What recent discussions he has had with his Scottish counterpart on farm budgets for the financial year 2024-25.
