Hugh Bayley

That this House is gravely concerned by the continuing assault on human rights in Congo, and in particular the Kabila regime's decision to expel Scott Campbell, director of the UN's Joint Human Rights Office in Congo, for publishing a report implicating the Congolese National Police in the summary execution of at least nine civilians and the enforced disappearance of 32 others in Kinshasa between November 2013 and February 2014; notes that Save the Congo has described this as Kabila's latest attempt to silence human rights defenders in Congo; supports Save the Congo's call to the Minister for Africa to make urgent representation to the Kabila regime over these issues; and urges the Government to report to the House on the results of the representations as soon as practical.

374 CHILD ABUSE INQUIRY 20:10:14
Mr John Leech
Jim Shannon

Mr Mike Hancock
Mr David Ward
Mark Durkan
*22
Naomi Long

That this House notes the instigation of an independent inquiry into historic child abuse by the Home Office which aims to investigate concerns that public bodies and other institutions have failed in their duty to protect vulnerable children from sexual abuse; further notes that the terms of reference as set out by the Home Secretary propose that the inquiry will not take evidence from individual victims, instead collating previous reviews to produce a lessons learnt report; believes that, unless revised, this approach will severely compromise the ability of the inquiry to achieve its stated aims; calls for the terms of reference to be amended to focus on hearing evidence from survivors of organised abuse; further calls for the inquiry to include the creation of a dedicated police team at the National Crime Agency to take evidence alongside the inquiry to investigate and prosecute offenders; further calls for the inquiry to stipulate that it will hold those who have failed in their professional duty, covered up allegations, or been obstructive to account; and further calls on the Government to find a new chair of the inquiry who has palpably demonstrated its willingness to challenge all quarters of the establishment to ensure that it can achieve its aims of providing justice to the victims of historic child abuse.

That this House is aware that there are currently more than six and a half million carers in the UK providing unpaid care and support to ill, older or disabled relatives and friends, many of whom get no or only limited help to do so; notes that most have to give up work, either partially or completely, to fulfil their roles and consequently experience debt and financial hardship in their lives; realises that if they were to desist from their tasks it would cost the Government £326 million per day - £119 billion per year - to deliver these services; and calls on the Government to introduce measures to end carers' financial hardship, prevent carers' health breakdowns and to find other ways to help them in their magnificent endeavours.

John Cryer
*12
Mr Graham Brady

That this House notes the outcome of the latest EU Council of Ministers meeting on transport on the proposed EU Regulation on market access to port services and financial transparency of ports; further notes that it is the Government's stated preference, 'that proposals for regulation applicable to the UK in this area - in which earlier proposals have twice been rejected by the European Parliament - should not be taken forward'; also notes that the Government did not oppose the general approach text of the Regulation at the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council meeting on 8th October 2014 is concerned that the provisions and concessions secured by the Government in its negotiations may be removed by the European Parliament or undermined by the European Court of Justice and the European Commission; further notes that the UK port industry is not persuaded that the legislation is acceptable despite these concessions; further notes the continuing opposition of the UK port industry and trade unions to the proposed Regulation in its totality; calls on the Government to ensure that this proposal is debated and voted on the floor of the House, as recommended by the European Scrutiny Committee, within the next three weeks; and also calls on the Government to abide by the will of the House in all future legislative stages of this Regulation.

Mr David Anderson
Mr David Crausby
*16
Mr Ronnie Campbell David Simpson Dr William McCrea Hugh Bayley

That this House is aware of the importance of science to the nation; notes, however, that in many schools, chemistry teachers do not even have a chemistry degree, there also being an acute shortage of specialist science subject leaders; further notes that evidence shows that teachers who have a specialist background in the subject they teach have a positive impact on a child's education, particularly in science; and calls on the Government immediately to invest in this sector to ensure children are offered science education at a more qualified and specialised level.

Mr David Crausby
*17
Dr William McCrea Hugh Bayley Mr Ronnie Campbell

That this House is aware that science helps to drive the UK's economy, with the nation being home to a number of extremely innovative high-tech small and medium-sized enterprises and companies, and our universities being well regarded for their production of world class research, while also at the same time delivering high levels of education and training for the benefit of both national and regional companies; notes, however, that UK investment in science has been held flat since 2010 whilst our international competitors are actively and strategically increasing their overall spend in these areas; and urges the Government immediately to make a long-term commitment to our knowledge and economy by raising its investment in research and development to at least that of the EU average by the end of the next Parliament.

Naomi Long Mr Jim Hood Jim Sheridan Dr William McCrea Mr Ronnie Campbell

That this House believes that British citizens would prefer that the goods and services they purchase from UK companies were free as far as possible from involvement in aspects of modern slavery in either their production or supply; notes that the Government's current proposed legislation is limited in its objectives to ensure that UK supply chains are slavery-free; and calls on the Government, where necessary, to strengthen mechanisms to end this blight in our society.

Rosie Cooper

Sir Peter Bottomley
Mr Mike Hancock [R]
Mr Jim Cunningham
*14
Mr Ronnie Campbell David Simpson Dr William McCrea

That this House welcomes the new report from the Transport Research Laboratory on the forgotten risk of hypoglycaemia among drivers with type 2 diabetes; notes with concern its findings that drivers are not being provided with adequate advice to prevent hypoglycaemic incidents which, as a result of road safety risks associated with debilitating symptoms, can cause them to lose their driving licence and sometimes livelihood; further notes that hypoglycaemia is a side effect of certain types of oral medication for type 2 diabetes; and calls on the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, employers and health care providers to ensure drivers are receiving the right treatment and advice to prevent hypoglycaemia and manage diabetes effectively in order to keep them healthy and on the road.

As an Amendment to Robert Flello's proposed Motion (Driving And Diabetes):

Mr Adrian Sanders [R]
Mr George Howarth
*2

Line2, leave out from 'diabetes' to end and add `and notes how infinitesimally small the number of road accidents involving people with diabetes are when compared for example to the number of injuries and deaths involving cyclists; but would not conclude on the basis of the data that people with diabetes, however they are treated, should have their driving licences withdrawn, any more than the riding of bicycles should be banned from the public highway as it would suggest if reducing accidents is the primary purpose behind this report.'. 24:10:14(a1)

Mr Virendra Sharma
*16
Mr Ronnie Campbell Natascha Engel Mrs Linda Riordan John Robertson

That this House supports workers at the homeless organisation St Mungo's Broadway in defending their terms and conditions and the service that they deliver to some of the most vulnerable in our society; condemns the significant pay rises to the executive including one to the Chief Executive of over £30,000; contrasts this rise with a claim that front line pay must be removed from collective bargaining and cut by 19 per cent, thus ignoring the union representing the majority of the workforce and imposing these unnecessary changes via a retrospective consultation and following the provision of highly questionable financial information; notes that the future of supported housing should not be left in the hands of individuals who undermine front line worker pay whilst raising their own salaries and who attempt to justify this by claiming they are simply following the market; and calls on the executive and board of St Mungo's Broadway to honour their recognition agreement with Unite and act to resolve this dispute immediately.

395 FUEL POVERTY ACTION'S ENERGY BILL OF RIGHTS 23:10:14

John McDonnell
Jeremy Corbyn
Mr Mike Hancock
Mr David Anderson
Kelvin Hopkins
*16
Mr Ronnie Campbell Dr William McCrea

That this House welcomes the Energy Bill of Rights put forward by Fuel Poverty Action as people-centred proposals to end the scandal of fuel poverty; endorses the campaign for a right to affordable energy to meet basic needs, a right to community and publicly-owned energy generation, a right to energy that does not threaten the climate, water, air or the local environment, and a right to properly insulated, well-repaired housing; believes that these are reasonable, achievable goals offering a clear alternative to centralised profit-driven energy policy; welcomes in particular the proposed right not to be forced to have a pre-payment meter, which often leave vulnerable people in the cold and dark; further welcomes the demand for a fair energy pricing system without standing charges, which can hit the poorest hardest by imposing an unfair burden on people who use less energy to save money and cut carbon emissions; calls on the Government to recognise that, this autumn, many constituents are turning on heating for the first time and finding that, before they can access any gas, they must start paying huge arrears that built up over the summer while they were not using heating; and urges Ministers to consider the Energy Bill of Rights as part of a radically more ambitious approach to tackling fuel poverty and transforming our energy system in the public interest.

396 PRISON CRISIS 23:10:14

That this House is concerned by recent reports regarding the rise of suicides in prisons in England and Wales over past 12 months; is alarmed that self-inflicted deaths have risen by 69 per cent in 2013-14 resulting in 88 deaths in custody - the highest level for 10 years; notes that the latest annual report by the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nigel Hardwick, highlights the increasing pressures in the prison system caused by shortages of experienced staff and resources coupled with the growing size of the prison population; further notes that the Howard League for Penal Reform estimate that prison officer numbers are down by 41 per cent in public sector prisons since 2010; is aware that there has also been an increase of 14 per cent in the rate of assaults by male prisoners; believes that the rise in the prison population to almost full capacity has put unsustainable pressure on both staff and inmates; and calls on the Government to launch an independent enquiry into the current crisis in the prison system and to urgently commit to further staffing in all prisons in England and Wales to ensure the safety of prisoners and staff.

Jeremy Corbyn
Mr David Anderson
Mr Jim Cunningham
Sir Alan Meale
Mark Durkan
Martin Caton
*10
Mr Ronnie Campbell

That this House opposes the imminent deportation from the UK to Pakistan of Pakistani citizen Mr Liaquat Ali, because it is believed that his life will be in danger as he is highly likely to be targeted by anti-Shia militants, due among other things to his faith and ethnicity; notes Mr Ali's very high political profile as a political activist in the UK as a promoter of Hazara interests and founder of the Hazara United Movement, and as editor of an internet television channel which has brought about electronic threats to his life, including letters delivered to his parents' house in Pakistan; appreciates that, based on these and other facts put forward in his asylum claim to the UK Border Agency (UKBA), there exists a very real risk of persecution for a Convention reason and treatment contrary to Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights if he were to return to Pakistan; and calls on the Government urgently to make strong representations to UKBA in relation to this very serious case.

That this House notes that Hatfield Colliery Partnership is now the last deep mine coal mine in the UK not to have announced its closure; further notes that Hatfield, with at least 40 years of reserves of coal, is proud to be the thirtieth largest employee-owned business in the UK; congratulates the National Union of Mineworkers in providing a £4 million bridging loan to the mine to secure a development which will secure 438 jobs until 2016; applauds the determination of the mine to continue in business to supply British coal to the UK's first clean coal power station, due to be completed at Drax in 2020, with over £250 million of public subsidy funding a pipeline to take emissions to the North Sea; recognises that in order to invest in future coal faces Hatfield will need premium contracts from the coal fired power station generators above current world prices which are at a historic low and that most imported coal comes from Colombia and Russia with vastly inferior labour and environmental standards; urges EDF, E.ON, Drax and Scottish and Southern to enter negotiations with Hatfield Colliery to agree such contracts which would be a hedge against future price movements and a demonstration of their corporate social responsibility; and requests the Government to facilitate such negotiations.

That this House is concerned about the abuses and threats faced by elephants in India and South-East Asia; notes that these animals are highly endangered; is disturbed that elephants are snatched from the wild to supply animals for tourist events and festivals; notes that to prepare them for use in tourist attractions and festivals baby and juvenile elephants are beaten, isolated and deprived of food and water to break their spirits and subdue them; further notes that Asian elephants are subject to ivory poaching and illegal trafficking; respectfully calls on the Indian and South-East Asian governments to take immediate measures to bring such ill-treatment to an end; and calls on United Kingdom tourists not to support any attractions that involve captive elephants.

Mr Dennis Skinner Mr Ronnie Campbell

That this House notes that public services have been privatised and outsourced without giving a voice to the public service users affected by those decisions; recognises that the public needs real powers to object to sell-offs, access information and hold private providers to account for their performance; and calls for the introduction of a Public Service Users Bill which would make the in-house option the default, require public consultation before privatisation or outsourcing and promote transparency, accountability and social value in public service contracts.

Mark Durkan
*1

That this House pays tribute to the highly valuable and effective research and development (R&D) work into innovative global health goods carried out by public-private partnerships such as the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership, the International AIDS Vaccine Alliance and the TB Alliance; highlights the important work these partnerships have done to accelerate the development of new or improved treatments, vaccines, microbicides, formulations and diagnostics against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a focus on efficacy and implementation in affected regions such as sub-Saharan Africa; recognises that this work meets an urgent demand not currently met by market-based models of medical R&D and allows the integration and co-ordination of international research and the development of long-term medical research capacity in developing countries; and calls on the Government to maintain and employ its position as a leading funder of such partnerships to encourage increased contributions from other donor countries and private sector partners, particularly European Union member states.

That this House notes recent reports that a private Christian school has had its rating downgraded from good to adequate by Ofsted, the school being told by Ofsted that it should invite representatives of other faith groups, such as an imam, to lead assemblies so that respect for other faiths could improve; and is concerned that the aftermath of the so-called Trojan Horse scandal involving hard-line Muslim groups allegedly infiltrating schools in Birmingham is being used to the detriment of Christian schools.

That this House is aware of the outstanding role being played by members of Britain's armed forces, in particular soldiers from the Royal Army Medical Corps operating in Sierra Leone as part of the UK's response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, who are helping train local people to tackle this terrifying disease; and notes that so far their missions have managed to build a treatment facility in Kerry Town involving hundreds of tonnes of equipment, provided vehicles to move patients and staff around the affected areas, established a facility medical centre housing blood banks, plasma freezers, centrifuges and safety handling uniforms and also engaged military staff to act with medical experts to help fight the outbreak.

Angus Robertson
Pete Wishart
Mr Angus Brendan MacNeil
Stewart Hosie
Mr Mike Weir
Dr Eilidh Whiteford

That this House notes the Conservative Party's policy to bring forward an in/out referendum in the next parliament, and growing support for such a vote in other UK political parties; further notes that academic research by Durham University and the University of East Anglia suggest that an in/out referendum on EU membership could generate a result in Scotland to stay in and a UK-wide result to exit; believes that the impact of an EU exit would be disastrous on jobs and on the economy; further believes that for any of the four constituent nations of the UK to be taken out of the EU against its wishes would be democratically indefensible; further notes the Prime Minister's description of the UK as a family of nations; and calls on the Government to support a requirement that for the UK to leave the EU, each of the four constituent nations, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, would have to vote to do so, not just the UK as a whole.
