BUSINESS OF THE DAY

Until 10.00pm (Standing Order No. 9(3))

Proposed subject for debate: Safe streets for all

That an Humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows:

Most Gracious Sovereign,

We, Your Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech did not include sufficient measures to address the climate and ecological emergencies and achieve the goal in the Paris Agreement 2015 to limit the rising global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels; note with alarm that global temperatures have already increased by 1.2 degrees Celsius, and that according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, one million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction; acknowledge that the UK was the first country in the world to commit to Net Zero by 2050, but that this target does not reflect the UK’s global responsibility and relies heavily on costly and uncertain negative emissions technologies, and that the UK is currently off-track to meet the Fourth and Fifth Carbon Budgets, which are based on an 80 per cent greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2050; therefore call on the Government to bring forward a Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill to provide an evidence-based statutory framework which would fairly fulfil the UK’s international climate and nature responsibilities, take a joined-up approach to addressing the climate and ecological emergencies, deliver a just and fair transition to a zero-carbon society, and demonstrate genuine leadership as host of the forthcoming G7 and COP26 summits; and further call on the Government to make time available for that Bill to progress and be debated in Parliament.’

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech does not adequately address the ownership of Premier League and English Football League clubs; note the opposition of football fans across the country to the European Super League proposal; believe that football is nothing without the fans; and therefore call on the Government to bring forward a People’s Football Bill, with a 50 per cent plus one share ownership system, modelled on the German Football League, empowering fans with majority control at Premier League and English Football League clubs.’

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech fails to include measures to address unemployment, poverty, and the intensifying climate crisis; note that the climate emergency poses a grave threat to public health and living standards in the UK and across the world; further note that the Government is currently set to miss its Fourth and Fifth Carbon Budgets; believe that, as the host of COP26, the UK must provide leadership in tackling the climate emergency; further believe that there should be no return to the deeply unequal, pro-privatisation economic model that preceded the covid-19 pandemic; therefore call on Government to bring forward a People’s Green New Deal Bill to provide a state-led programme of economic transformation, with a green jobs revolution to create millions of well-paid, unionised jobs, including by bringing energy, water, transport and mail into public ownership, investing in green technologies, expanding and electrifying public transport and expanding international rail, retrofitting homes, creating a National Care Service, providing universal free broadband, repealing anti-trade union laws and increasing workers’ rights, a just transition away from polluting industries with a comprehensive re-training programme and green jobs guarantee, and public procurement in line with global justice in supply chains; and call on the Government to tackle inequality by raising taxes on the richest 5 per cent of earners and large corporations, while introducing a windfall tax on corporations who have made excessive profits during the covid-19 pandemic and a crackdown on tax avoidance and evasion.’

Amendment (d)

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech does not adequately address the demonstrated will of the Scottish people so expressed during the recent Scottish Parliamentary election, that is to progress the cause of Scottish Independence.’

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that measures to reduce the incidence of brain injury, ensure research on prevention and treatment of brain injury including for men and women suffering from concussion in sport, foetal alcohol syndrome, hypoxia and carbon monoxide poisoning, ensure shared protocols on concussion in sport across all sports and improve access to rehabilitation services were not included in the Gracious Speech; recognise that the Government has proposed a new Health and Care Bill to enable patients to receive care closer to home; note that the effects of a brain injury can be wide ranging, varied in severity and may be temporary or long term therefore requiring a co-ordinated response by Government and agencies; further note that children from poorer families are more likely to suffer a brain injury before their fifth birthday; therefore call on the Government to ensure the provision of adequate funding for services, guidance and treatment for every UK citizen with an assessed brain injury; and further call on the Government to ensure training in the education and criminal justice system on supporting those with an acquired brain injury, and to ensure that such provision does not interfere with decisions made by the devolved elected chambers in the UK.’

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that the Gracious Speech does not contain measures to make the tax system truly progressive or to raise taxes on the super-rich; and therefore call on the Government to bring forward a Bill to introduce a windfall tax on companies that have made super-profits during the covid-19 outbreak, a wealth tax on the super-rich, a new 50 per cent income tax rate on incomes over £125,000, and a new 55 per cent income tax rate on incomes over £200,000.’

At end add ‘but respectfully regret that measures to create a requirement for the Government to act when the courts find that Government policy creates an incompatibility with the human rights of a UK citizen were not included in the Gracious Speech; recognise as a result of not addressing rulings made by the courts on these issues children who have lost a mother or father but whose parents were not married, and vulnerable victims of domestic violence who have been required to pay the bedroom tax because they have a sanctuary room, have been discriminated against; note that these rulings were made in 2018, 2019 and 2020 so that there has been ample time for the Government to address those rulings; further note that if the Government ignores the decisions made by courts on the rights of UK citizens this undermines the integrity of the judicial and democratic process; and call on the Government to bring forward measures to fully remedy those incompatibilities within three months.’

The call list for Members participating will be made available on the House of Commons business papers pages.
