Canlyniadau 181–200 o 510 ar gyfer speaker:Roger Mullin

Criminal Finances Bill (25 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I am particularly grateful to the Minister for that clarity. Indeed, in coming to the Dispatch Box at that moment he confirmed what I was about to say in my closing line on the issue of SLPs. Given how he has discussed this matter with those of us on the Opposition Benches who are interested in it, and his understandable and quite appropriate concern about the matters raised, I was going to...

Sexual Offences (Pardons etc) Bill (21 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: It’s not unanimous! [Laughter.]

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: What a pleasure it is to follow my hon. Friend the Member for East Lothian (George Kerevan). As he was talking, I wrote down the following: “Until I read my hon. Friend’s book, I will remain in some sympathy with the hon. Member for Bedford (Richard Fuller) and my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman).” One problem, as I see it, with nearly every other...

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I wish the hon. Gentleman would not mince his words—he should say it as he really feels it. Where Smith has some relevance is in his argument that critical to growth was the division of labour in society, with specialisation—what we might call today the importance of having the education and skills that allow us to promote innovation and change. That is what spurs longer-term growth, and...

BHS: Industrial Strategy (20 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I would take issue with the latter part of the hon. Gentleman’s observations. We were on the opposite side of the argument, but surely he would agree that the Government’s response to the vote has been utterly chaotic? We are no further forward four months later than we were at the time as to what the Government mean by Brexit and how they are going to take us there. That is doing nothing...

BHS (20 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I thank my hon. Friend and all the members of both Committees. I had the pleasure of sitting in and listening to quite a lot of the interrogation and I thought it was first-class. Despite the problems we have heard about, such as those to do with corporate architecture and regulation, does my hon. Friend agree that Adam Smith was right when he said we cannot divorce business practice from...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: As I rise, I look across at Government Members who are probably thinking that I am a principal scaremongerer. I was the first on the SNP Benches to raise the issue of EU nationals in this House. I raised it before the referendum vote when, because of the leave campaign, two of my constituents, originally from Germany, Thomas and Elke Westen, said to me that such was their concern about the...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention. That harks back to the opening remarks of the Immigration Minister, who is no longer in his place. At one stage in his speech he was trying to provide reassurance and say there was no uncertainty, but he also said that he was not in a position to set out a definitive position. Why not? He went on to say that it was because it would not be...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I agree entirely. I want to move on to tackle a question raised by Government Members, who asked us whether we were not also concerned about the rights of British citizens living abroad. Well, I can tell them that I am. I will tell them who first raised this concern with me: Tracy de Jongh Eglin, who lives in the Netherlands. She contacted me some months ago. What worried her was that when...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I agree entirely. It is not enough to say that we want people to stay here; it is more about allowing those people to have rights. The problem at the moment is that many of the rights that individuals hold in our society are rights that they have because they are EU citizens and fall under EU law. It is under EU law that they have a right to work here, the right to retire here, the right to a...

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I thank my right hon. Friend for that quite astonishing point. Does that not speak to the morality of Conservative Members?

Rights of EU Nationals (19 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: The hon. Gentleman makes a wonderful point. I have been in discussions in my own constituency with a body called the migrant forum, the majority of whose members are of Polish extraction. They have been coming to me with concerns, wanting to find ways to gain reassurance. It is not good enough for some Conservative Members to say, “They should not be frightened and they should not be...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Access to support for students recognised as needed protection (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I would like to say a few words in praise of the new clause. I have moved 10 amendments today. Many dozens of amendments have been tabled, but I think this is the most important one we face, because this is the one that speaks to who we are as a community and as a people. I would like to praise and thank the hon. Gentleman for his recognition of the work the Scottish Government have done in...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Grants to UKRI from the Secretary of State (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: The trouble is that the requirements and criteria set for graduate-level work might well be appropriate for the south of England, but looking at the recent case of the Brain family and the amount of work needed to allow that family from Australia to get a tier 2 visa and stay and contribute in Scotland—thanks to the work of my hon. Friend the Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Grants to UKRI from the Secretary of State (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I am happy to say I have made my point and I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Grants to UKRI from the Secretary of State (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I beg to move amendment 285, in clause 94, page 56, line 25, at end insert— ‘(1A) Within six months of this Act coming into force, the Secretary of State shall give a direction to UKRI to commission an independent evaluation of the matters under subsection (1B) and shall lay the report of the evaluation before the House of Commons. (1B) The evaluation under subsection (1A) shall...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Grants to UKRI from the Secretary of State (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I thank the Minister for indicating earlier that he was willing to allow me to say a few words on amendment 284 before he responds to the debate. My hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North West and I have been contacted by many institutions in the devolved nations about amendment 284 more than any other. They are concerned about the potential that hazard will be placed in their way because...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Grants to UKRI from the Secretary of State (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I dearly wish that I could believe the Minister’s explanation. I am willing not to press amendment 284 at this stage, but I intend to go back to all those who have expressed such deep concern and potentially bring the issue back on Report.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: UK research and innovation functions (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I thank the Minister genuinely for his responses. I will not put the amendment to a vote, but I make two observations. I do not think establishing mere regional managers in Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast, if I recall his statement correctly, are in any way sufficient to guarantee the type of high-level involvement that is being sought. There are examples—I gave one related to the post-study...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: UK research and innovation functions (18 Hyd 2016)

Roger Mullin: I beg to move amendment 180, in clause 85, page 52, line 21, at end insert “but must be exercised in such a way as to be for the benefit of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.” This amendment would place a general duty on UKRI to discharge its functions under section 85 for the benefit of the UK as a whole.
