Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Drugs: Sentencing 25 Nov 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many people received a (a) custodial sentence, (b) community penalty, (c) financial penalty and (d) other disposal for offences related to class (i) A, (ii) B and (iii) C drugs in the most recent year for which figure are available.
  • Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court 24 Nov 2014

    The hon. Gentleman is speaking about extending the scope of recall. I declare an interest as a lawyer, but would not new clauses 2 and 3 be a charter particularly for lawyers, meaning that the system becomes unduly litigious? That will detract from the original intention of recall, which is to give real power to the people.
  • Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court 24 Nov 2014

    Drawing on the previous intervention and my point about litigation, does this not then become a shadow trial in a line to what perhaps should be a criminal trial in relation to the common law offence? That is the danger, because we are raising not only a civil but criminal liability that may become very protracted and not lead to the end result of a proper recall process.
