sustainable development goals. When I was first appointed to thhs job


they said to me, there is no power, so I am quite pleased that having


raised Marmite last week we got a result by the end of the dax. Bob


Dylan has been awarded the Nobel Prize for literature and he hasn't


contacted the academy so we said to Bob Dylan, please contact the


academy. For the honourable member for Perth and North Perthshhre,


thanks for the kind comments last week, maybe he can spot the


subliminal messages Willett references to Bob Dylan. We are


bombarded with statements and now we have a statement on the crisis in


the funding for farming. It took an urgent question before the Linister


comes to the House today. Why a statement and not a debate? The


Minister said the government proposed ways to propose a reduction


to the 2.8 billion currentlx paid to the sector but it has been rejected


by. The Health Secretary sahd pharmacists have an important part


in the future of the NHS so why the cuts? He commended the important


role pharmacists can play in solving any problem the NHS faces so why the


cuts? In July this year he said it is the right time to rethink the


role of pharmacies and conshder whether we can be better at tapping


into the incredible skills pharmacists have, which I do not


think we make the most of. So why the cuts? The Health Secret`ry says


it is all good so why is he cutting funds to the sector? For thd second


time this week it is governlent by urgent question. Only last week I


mentioned the reversal of the Member for Tatton's economic policx and


here comes another. Can we have a full debate, not just a statement,


on the sale of annuities, dragged to the House on a U-turn so spdctacular


we can't see round the bend. The poor minister said, through


extensive research, a secondary market would not be able to offer


this. There were many unanswered questions like when the full -- when


the government first did extensive research, but the former Ch`ncellor


not look at the evidence in March 20 15th where was it just a me`ns to


stimulate the economy using people's hard earned savings? -- the March of


2015. The answer is blowing in the win. Can I ask him to make `


statement on what the honourable member for Britain meant by saying


the government can't reveal their hands on negotiations to exht the EU


because you don't win you play poker. Is this gambling with the


British people's lives? Even Margaret Thatcher had a negotiation


position, no, no, no, or I want to rebate. They said we can't reveal a


position, we say this is basic accountability. The only answer is


that a hard Brexit is going to fall. The statement on airport expansion


in the south-east scheduled for next week has been postponed yet again.


Instead the Prime Minister lade her intentions clear, only in rdsponse


to the honourable member for the Bedford at PMQs, this government


would take a decision and then a formal process has to be undertaken,


the government will identifx their preferred site and that will go to a


consultation and the governlent will consider the results of that. What


about the timetable for implementation, the further work on


noise pollution nation -- pollution, environmental impacts. I want to


place on record my thanks to the former Prime Minister and hhs wife


Samantha for the I'm eating support for epilepsy charity. -- for their


unstinting support. We remelber next week the ABBA van disaster. -- we


disaster. Jo Cox gave her a great disaster. Jo Cox gave her a great


service to the country so rhghtly deserves a plaque in this chamber.


Her family should not have had to bury their daughter, sister and wife


and their adored children should not have had to grow up without their


mother. Our love to them all, may she rest in peace. Can I first deal


with the two very serious point of the honourable lady raised `t the


end? I am sure every single member of the House will want to m`rk the


appalling tragedy in Aberfan when the anniversary is commemor`ted


tomorrow. None of us who ard alive, even if we were very young `t the


time, can ever forget the sdaring impact of the photographs and the


news coverage of what happened there and the images and the visible grief


of the families is something that is still very clear in the memory. As


to, as the Prime Minister s`id yesterday, is the fact that those


who might have been able to prevent the tragedy did not act in


fulfilment of their responshbilities until forced -- and did not until


forced to do so actually own up to their responsibilities. Solhdarity


with Aberfan and sympathy whth the family of our late colleagud Jo Cox.


I know that the matter of the commemorative shield is somdthing


you have high on your agend`, Mr Speaker, and I would also lhke to


pay tribute to the fact that the parliament choir, which is `n


all-party, has with the agrdement both Jo Cox's family commissioned a


new choral composition that will be performed in her memory at `


forthcoming concert. If I can turn to the political


points and I wasn't sure if the honourable lady was complaining


about there having been too many urgent questions. I mean, I did feel


that there was a certain retro, sort of retrospective character tore to


comments that she said earlher. On pharmacists, as she knows, there is


going to be a statement by ly Right Honourable friend after bushness


questions this morning. At which he will set out in detail the


Government's approach to colmunity pharmacists. I would make this


point, that it is very important that we ensure not just that the


money going to the National Health Service is suss saned and increased,


as this -- sustained as this Government is doing, but we ensure


that every single last pennx of money which goes to the NHS is spent


to give the best possible v`lue to patients. We need to look at


community pharmacy as at prhmary and secondary health care to ensure that


we get the best possible value out of every penny of precious NHS


funding that is spent. On hdr point about the sale of annuity, `s my


honourable friend, the minister said yesterday, the Government m`de a


therer and honest assessment of the prospects for a genuine market in


secondary annuities and we reluctantly came to conclaugs that


to have that gone a-- concltsion that to have gone ahead with the


measures would not have been of benefit to the very group of


consumers who were looking to a secondary anunties market in order


to ride them with some relidf because the products were shmply not


going to be available to give them the additional safeguards and


opportunities that they werd seeking.


Now I have to say, I really struggle to understand the opposition's


position on the negotiated position the Government is adopting over the


forthcoming European Union negotiations. I would have thought


that whether we're talking `bout politics or about business or any


other walk of life, that if you are about to start a very important and


wide-ranging negotiation, the last thing that you do is to advdrtise


the detail of your negotiathng position so that the people with


whom you are negotiating can see everything spread out in front of


them. I think, I just think that the opposition needs to wake up and


realise that the people who would be most delighted if they got their way


would be the people with whom we will be negotiating across the


table. Can I last turn to hdr point about airports? The Governmdnt will,


as the Prime Minister said, be making an they announcement in the -


near future about which of the options in the Davis's report we


will adopt. The Davis report has said that any of the three options


that they have proposed would be deliverable. And sustainabld.


The Government will of course comply with the requirements for stat Tory


consultation following that announcement that the Labour


Government actually put in place. That actually accounts for the delay


about which he is now compl`ining. I have to say, Mr Speaker, th`t if


there's one thing that's blowing in the wind this morning, it is the


co-her rens of the Labour P`rty s ideas about policy and I don't know


whether they are sleeping wdll at night, but it is very clear to me


there's no place they are going to. THE SPEAKER: As usual a large number


of members are seeking to c`tch my eye. My normal practise is to call


everybody on this occasion. But there are exceptions. Today, there


is a statement on community pharmacy to follow and two very heavhly


subscribed debate to take place under the auspices of the b`ckbench


committee. It may not be possible to call everybody today. If I `m to


have any chance of doing so, there is a premium upon briefty, which


will be brilliantly ex-acceptlified by Mr Phillip Davis. Can we have a


statement urgently from the Government about the farce of


allowing the child referees into the -- refugees into the countrx. The


Home Office have admitted that two-thirds of successful applicants


as child refugees are actually adults. Jack Straw today has said we


need to do better on age chdcks as does the member for Hodge Hhll. This


is a serious concern to manx of our constituents. Can we have an urgent


statement what the Government is going to make sure to do th`t the


children? We work closely whth the children? We work closely whth the


French authorities to ensurd all the cases applying to the UK do actually


qualify under the Dublin amdnts which include -- arrangements which


include the requirement for children to be under 18. We have to carry out


the checks in a way that ard come plient with High Court judglents


upon this matter. As my honourable friends knows the British Ddntal


Association has taken the vhew that to carry out x-rays of clailants'


teeth would not be a relike indicator of age as well, as in


their view, of being unethical. May I join him in the house to the


tributes of Aberfan. And the horrific events surrounding


the murder of Jo Cox. Can I suggest the debates wd get our


terms right for Brexit. We have hard Brexit, soft Brexit. I want to


suggest soggy Brexit, maybe, I can't believe it's not Brexit! A serious


point on this is we still h`ve not had a debate in Government time on


its plans to leave the European Union. We've had one since H was an


SNP, we heard the Lord's colmittee saying it must be properly debated


and suggesting we have a debate in advance of the Article 50 bding


triggered. Can we know have a solid plan and proposal about when this


House gets to debate about what this House is intending to do with this.


Mr Speaker, three drawn boundaries for Scottish Members of Parliament


and in reducing the number of MPs to 53. We would like to is havd that to


serve row when we begin our sovereignty.


I was in the debate briefly yesterday. How can it possibly be


right to in these Houses of Parliament, we now have mord


parliamentarians appointed by a Prime Minister than elected be I the


people? He is making that worse Lastly, Mr Speaker, tomorrow we have


the... The member on an isste, the bill which seeks to posthumously


pardon gay men in this legislation. We hear the Government drawhng up


support for that in an amendment in the House of Lords. It should be


here that it is properly considered and properly considered by dlected


members. All that does is whthdraw support and further undermine the


Private Member's Bill. Will he think that and make sure that support of


that bill tomorrow? Mr Speaker, I really think there has alre`dy been


many opportunities to hold linisters to account for the Government's


approach to the European negotiations. We had questions to my


Right Honourable friend the Secretary of State for exithng the


European Union, who has madd a number of oral statements to the


House about this since the referendum. I'm slightly surprised


that the honourable gentlem`n should appear to denigrate the importance


of Select Committees, in both this House and the other place. Ht is


simply wrong to belief that it is only a -- believe that it is only a


debate in session that qualhfies as scrutiny. In my experience, having


served as a minister for thd last sort of, more than six years, it is


often Select Committees that can be much more demanding on ministers, in


terms of preparation and thhnking through your policy and we should


respect the importance of those committee hearings. I can s`y to him


that my Right Honourable frhend the Prime Minister, will of course be


giving an oral statement next week about the European Council. That


will apply another opportunhty for such questioning. On his pohnt about


his honourable friend's bill, I mean, the Government very mtch


shares the honourable gentldman s wish to see the pardons givdn to


people who were convicted of conaccept sue homosexual


acts when they were criminal offences. What the Government is


proposing is we should legislate both to provide posthumous pardons


for people who are now dekedzed and main it clear those who are living,


so they could then qualify for a pardon. The reason we can not


support the bill is it does not take account the need of people who are


living to check the offence for which they were convicted w`s


genuinely consen sue and to check that the offence was not covered by


a sex against a minor which would still be a breach of the crhminal


law today. What is now requhred in each case a short question without


preamble and a short reply from the front bench.


To mark this occasion they held an event where I got to meet 14 now


apprentices. Will my friend join me to congratulate Brigs and whsh the


new apprentices good luck whth their new career and have a discussion on


the three million apprenticdship target? I am delighted to hdar the


news from my honourable fridnd's constituency. The three million


apprenticeship's target is ` key element in increasing the skills and


productivity of our nation. As the evidence from her constituency shows


sensible businesses realise that to develop apprenticeship scheles is in


their own commercial interest as well.


Mr Speaker, last year, the TK received 5.6 billion from the


European investment bank, investing in skills and infrastructurd across


the country. With the UK languishing at the bottom of the G7 productivity


league table. Can we have a debate on the impact of leaving thd


European Union and potentially leaving our stake on the investment


bank on pro-ducktity and wh`t the Government's plans are to address


this? These are all things which will be one element in the


negotiations. It is that Government has made it clear its industrial


strategy is intended to address the very deep-seated, long-runnhng


problem we have over productivity. Would my Right Honourable friend


find time on returning veterans with mental health issues? I met


represents from care after combat thapd have a very successful -- and


they have a very successful rate in turning people's lives around who


unfortunately end up in prison. Mr Speaker, I think that everybody and


certainly the Government wants to do all within our power to makd sure


that those who have served hn the armed forces and those who kurptdly


do have the best -- currently do have the best possible access to


treatment for mental health and appropriate action is taken to


prevent people from develophng mental health problems in the first


place. I can assure assure him of this.


Can I thank the leader for the confirmation of the time allocation


for the backbench committee on the 3rd November. Can I ask for time on


27th for the youth Parliament, on young people's mental health, is


there any element of protection of that time on that particular day?


Can I ask for an indication for any time allocation on Tuesday, Monday


or Tuesday, 8th or 9th Novelber I am surprised by the way the member


for Perth and North Perthshhre didn't mention readily-Brexht! But


not to worry. The time next week will be protected. I shall write to


him about the other dates. Lr Speaker, I can remember the days on


the other side used to complain about how much time we spent on


Europe. Isn't it time we stopped banging on about Europe and just got


on? Well, I note my honourable friend's


advice that we should stop banging on about this subject. Now H think


that if that is a belated edition to his birthday wish list, then I will


be happy to oblige. What we will have to do as a Government hs


prepare our negotiating poshtion thoroughly and then get the most


ambitious deal on behalf of all of the people in the United Kingdom.


A literary journal but requdsts submissions at the University of


Nottingham is normally publhshed as a downloadable PDF but it is due to


appear in print as a limited edition box set. Ahead of next Tuesday's


Nottingham in Parliament thdy will he congratulate me on -- will he


join me in congratulating The Letters Page? I am delighted to hear


about the literary creativity of her constituents and the people of


Nottingham and it is good to see that the great literary tradition of


DH Lawrence has not been extinguished but is alive and


flourishing. Sepsis claims `round 40,000 lives per year in thd UK


Could we have a statement on the government's newly announced public


awareness campaign so we can establish how Public Health England


plans to work with experts to make sure that this campaign is `s


successful as possible? I think that we would all in this House want to


take note of recent shocking cases where people have not had sdpsis


diagnosed early enough for dffective treatment to begin. It is clearly


deeply unsatisfactory that there should be any case where th`t


happens. Health ministers whll certainly want to make sure that


there are improvements were those can be achieved and I will draw


attention to my honourable friend's request for a debate. May wd have a


debate on palliative care? @ hospice in my constituency is a crucial


resource for those most in need at the end of their lives and such


facilities should be supported across the UK. I, like her, tried to


demonstrate support when I can for the palliative care services in my


constituency. I think that this is one of the important improvdments in


attitudes towards health care that we have seen in recent years, to


accept that people who are hn the final stages of their life `re


entitled to be treated not just in respect of their physical sxmptoms


but with the respect and dignity that is due to the whole person


There was a meeting of my constituents in Peterborough, many


of whom are going to be evicted shortly as the result of a deal


between Peterborough Council and the North London estate agent Stefan


Phillips. Can we have a deb`te on this, as they are due to be replaced


with homeless people. Can wd have a debate that looks at housing benefit


regulations and this repugn`nt basis that prioritises housing benefit for


these people rather than my constituents over long standing If


he would care to provide me with the details I will draw that to the


attention of the Minister. The total number of deaths caused in @merica


by the side-effects of drugs have grown to a figure that more people


are killed by these drugs them all people killed by road traffhc


accidents, guns and terrorism. We use a third of such drugs in Europe


and can we debate the terrible result of medicines that ard more


deadly than the maladies. Hd has been somebody who has looked at


drugs use and drugs policy for many years so I listened with sole


respect to what he says. Thdre will be the opportunity to questhon Home


Office ministers on the 31st of October about this and I wotld


suggest he takes advantage of that opportunity. Can we have tile to


have a debate on the rural dconomy? There is never enough time on the


back bench or in Westminster Hall to discuss something that will be vital


to the UK when we leave the EU, so can we have time here in thhs


chamber? I think that while there will be opportunities to qudstion


the Secretary of State for DEFRA and her ministers, my advice in the


short time, and given the ntmber of ministers who represent rur`l or


partly rural constituencies, would be to make an application to the


backbench business committed, because there should be strdngth in


numbers. Can we have a debate on the international freedom of thd press,


just in case the BBC faces the closure of its Moscow bureat bank


accounts by a state owned b`nk in Russia, something that happdns in


authoritarian states and wotld never happen in a liberal democracy like


the UK. I think we all want to keep a close eye on action that the


Russian authorities may takd towards free media and civil societx


organisations inside their own territory. I am afraid therd is a


history of the Russian authorities causing difficulties for jotrnalists


and broadcasters, civil sochety organisations and the British


Council, which is to be deplored. Following my debate in Westlinster


Hall yesterday on the Ministry of Defence future accommodation model I


have been inundated with messages from military families overnight.


Will he support my request for a wider debate to support the future


of accommodation as part of the covenant? I know she spoke `s always


with great vigour and on thd basis of significant knowledge in the


debate yesterday. She would have had an answer from the veterans Minister


at the end of that debate. The government will of course bd


publishing its proposals for defence estate later this year and that I am


sure will provide members of the House with further opportunhties to


debate this. The Swansea Bax tidal lagoon project would pave the way


for ?15 billion worth of investment in tidal lagoons, including one


planned in my constituency which could provide electricity for a


million homes. We need tidal power as part of the future of cldan


energy. When the government review reports next month, can we have a


statement from the Minister supporting this technology? As she


said, the results of that rdview are due to be reported within the next


few weeks. I will make sure that the Secretary of State is aware of her


request for a statement on that matter, I am sure there will be


opportunities in the House to debate these matters and for her to raise


concerns. Can we have a deb`te on the process used to review the green


belt? In Greater Manchester the process of expressing an interest


has led to vast swathes of green belt land being the subject of


speculation and it has causdd huge anxiety for residents. The


government National Pollock -- planning policy framework m`kes it


clear that green belt land should only be used for development in


exceptional circumstances. Hf a local authority wants to make such a


case for exceptionalism, it has to provide the justification when it


submits its draft local plan for examination in public, at which


point an independent expect -- inspector tests rigorously the


argument is that the local `uthority has made so these are matters that


rightly are dealt with at arm's-length from central government


ministers but that is the procedure that my honourable friend and his


constituents might want to look at. Will the Leader of the Housd find


time for a debate or a ministerial correction on the subject of how


difficult it is for EU countries to export to Norway? In the early


exchange the Secretary of State for Brexit said that it was verx easy


for Sweden to export to Norway. There was a conference in Sweden


earlier this week and I am hndebted to Alan Winters professor of


economic 's who said that Swedish exporters find exporting to Norway


for more troublesome than exporting within the EU. He will have


opportunities to challenge the Secretary of State for Brexht. I


have to say that I may be responsible for many things but


commercial relations between Sweden and Norway are not my area. Can the


Leader of the House in his tnique role review the approach of the


government to Select Committee responses and seed it up? Bd women


and equality is Minister has been waiting months for his report on the


gender pay gap and the report on transgender people. I am gr`teful to


my honourable friend for letting me have some notice of this qudstion


and I have looked into this. The report that she mentions did of


course involve responsibilities of a number of government apart `t -


departments and I think she did get a letter earlier from the Sdcretary


of State to alert her to thd fact that there probably would bd a delay


in response. But I do share her disquiet and I certainly do not


regard it as satisfactory that heard department should have waitdd so


much longer than the normal period. I will draw her concern to the


attention of the ministers responsible and I hope we c`n


provide her committee with the government responds that it is


entitled to as rapidly as possible. 50 years ago I was a newly `ppointed


young lecturer at Swansea University. I remember that deep,


dark wet day of Aberfan and the death of those children and I


associate myself with the thoughts today and can we have a discussion


perhaps about how we look after the people, the families, the


communities when tragedies like that happen? It took a long time to


respond positively to that terrible tragedy. I think the honour`ble


gentleman makes a very fair and reasonable point and as he rightly


says it is often sometime after the immediate period of shock and grief


that the full traumatic imp`ct of what people have lived throtgh and


lost bears down upon them. @n effective response has to you


involve not just statutory services but often most effectively friends


and neighbours in the neighbourhoods where the people themselves live


Tommaso Allan expect there `re lessons that can be learned from


successes and failures over the years. -- themselves live, so I


expect. I am sure he will h`ve the opportunity to debate this hn


future. Can we have a debatd on endangered species on government


time? I have tried Westminster Hall and not been successful. It is an


important debate for the future of the world and my grandchildren's


generation, I want them to see the animals that are in danger `nd it is


an important subject. I agrde with her and the government is whth DEFRA


ministers and foreign officds - Foreign Office Minister is hn the


league, taking on the role of being one of the foremost international


champions of better arrangelents to protect not just in danger `nd


species but the habitat is necessary for their survival is. -- is in the


lead. Effective agreements do require a degree of international


consensus in order to work. That is what we seek to do through


international organisations that have a role here. After the


concentric stir Baco with the tax credit office, the tax credht office


have called me on four cases saying they are taking up complaints on


those cases. Can we have a debate on this? There is a debate next week on


concentric spurt on the particular case if he would like to get the


details to me later today I will get into the financial the Secrdtary of


State. UK financial services employed 2000 people. Could the


leader find time in this ch`mber to have a debate on the import`nce of


the debate to the UK economx and the government framework for


transitional arrangements so we can thrive post Brexit? -- employees


200,000 people. It may be something he is able to raise in the


forthcoming debate on industrial strategy but I am very happx to join


him in recognising the importance of the sector to the UK upon md --


economy and I hope there's `n opportunity debate this, to


reinforce the importance of the sector. Can we have a debatd on


government time on the government response to the consultation on


reforms to the civil servicd compensation scheme? With over 000


responses and 98% against, can I press on him concerns that lany


members have about having constituents who have delivdred


public services throughout their working life.


I want to put on record the public ser haven'ts in all parts of the


public service go about thehr duties. We have to recognisd that.


We also have to recognise the fact that pension schemes, like dvery


other aspect of public expenditure have to be paid for by taxp`yers out


of money taken by Government from their earnings. There is a


consultation which has been going on. Ministers will consider that


consultation and make their response in due course.


Can we have a debate about vulnerable women services which are


being cut. Women's charities made the point to me the biggest risk


factor of domestic factor is of being a woman W the leader `nd the


Government recognise it is not about access to toilets or trousers but


vulnerable women's access to services.


Well, if he will perhaps let me have some of the details of which he s


based his question, I will draw them to the attention of my Right


Honourable friend the Secretary of State for education, who has


responsibilities for the wolen's equalities office. What is needed is


a single -- THE SPEAKER: What is needed is a


single short question. If they are heard they will be and if not they


won't be. Can I associate mxself with the comments about Aberfan and


the comments about Jo Cox.lx attend a ball for Emily Clark, who died


sadly of cancer this year. Can we have a debate on the needs that


young cancer patients have when they suffer from this terrible dhsease? I


would want to associate mysdlf with expressions of sympathy and support


for Emily's family and friends at an appalling loss. We need to lake


sure, as a Government, that the NHS works hard on policies that are more


effective in preventing, iddntifying and diagnosing and treating cancer


in children and young peopld. As with all cancers we should be aware


of how heartbreaking the cases are. . Is the Government preparing for a


division or are the whips gdtting backbenchers to talk it out? Mr


Speaker, on all of subjects private members' business, I have no idea


whether people will seek to divide the House or not. Whether tdllers


will be appointed. This is something on which the honourable gentleman


will have to indulge in the pressures of -- pleasures of delayed


anticipation. Farmers are bding forced to deal with antisochal


behaviour from packs of offroad bikers. May we have a debatd on the


impact of offroad biking and people riding rough shot over our


countryside? I would deplord the behaviour that the honourable


gentleman has described. Thdre are many offroad bikers who do observe


the law and accept that thex have responsibilities in enjoying their


pastime to respect the rights and the economic interests of the people


who manage the countryside `nd people who live in the countryside.


I hope that this, the particular problem he's described can be sorted


out locally we fekive work by the police and the local authorhties. I


am sure he will find opporttnities to raise this further in thd House


if that is not possible. Yesterday myself and colleagues met


with Immigration Ministers to discuss plans to build a short-term


immigration centre in my locality. This will mean de... I didn't want a


speech. I wanted a one answdr question. Can we have a deb`te on


the UK's detention policy, which results in the UK detaining more


people than... There'll be Home Office questions on Monday 31st He


may have the opportunity to raise his concern then. Boka Harel


continue to kidnap young girls would the House have a debate on this


matter? Mr Speaker, the British Government is going all it can to


support the Nigerian authorhties both in getting the return of those


girls who have been abducted and in showing there is effective `ction


against Bok, oh. There is a rise in hate crimes against foreign


nationals and homophobic attacks since the referendum. Can I ask for


a debate to not only discuss the problem but the action requhred to


address this? Well, this has been raised with me at the last two


business questions. I again say I condemn, as I think all members of


all sides of the House and both sides on the referendum do the type


of attack and abuse that shd has described. It has no place


whatsoever in our politics. The Government has committed to


produce a national ship building strategy by the term of the Autumn


Statement. Will the House h`ve an opportunity to debate that, given


the disgraceful delay in orders the type 26 frigates? Well, the type 26


frigates are being built because there is a United Kingdom Royal Navy


which is placing those orders in Scottish shipyards. Something that a


separate Scotland would be tnable to promise. There will of course be


many opportunities in this House to debate industrial strategy `nd to


look at ship building as ond element in that. Thank you Mr Speakdr. Can


the Leader of the House tell us when he intends to schedule the trgent
