Business of the House (18 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Britain has an exceptional trading relationship with the United States, but more can be done to make trade easier for small business in particular. May we have a debate about the way in which the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, or TTIP—the current negotiations for a better deal between the European Union and United States—can bring only opportunities for...

Energy and Climate Change: UK Anti-corruption Plan (18 December 2014)

Julian Smith: DFID and other Departments are doing world-class work in this area. Does the Minister have a view on how the UK anti-corruption plan stacks up against those of our international partners?

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: I am trying to keep up with the hon. Lady. What are the circumstances that will make it impossible for people to apply to the consulate or somewhere else to come back to the UK? She is making a number of assertions that she is not backing up.

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that as well as the intelligence issue, the British people want the state to act in a nimble and dynamic way, as long as measures are proportionate, against one of the biggest threats to our security in decades? I suspect he acknowledges that broader point given his role on the Intelligence and Security Committee.

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: The rights being removed under the exclusion orders are nowhere near the same as those being removed under TPIMs, so the need for executive dynamism and an ability to move quickly should trump the point that the right hon. Gentleman is making.

business of the house (today): Clause 2 — Temporary exclusion orders (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: How would the right hon. Gentleman get around the Home Secretary’s comments about the security implications of his model—giving out data to carriers that could compromise British national security?

business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: I urge the right hon. Gentleman to think carefully about pressing his amendment. What sort of message will it send to terrorists and people who threaten our country if he goes down this wishy-washy path of supporting the Bill but saying we should review it in 18 months’ time?

business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Will the right hon. Gentleman clarify what is his mechanism for appeal? Surely the measure allows border control officers to take a passport without giving too many reasons and, after two weeks, for a judicial review to take place. How would his appeal process work? How would we avoid giving away intelligence during the appeal that could jeopardise the United Kingdom’s security?

business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: The shadow Minister has already said that schedule 1 is detailed and that there is a lot to contemplate in it. Would not adding the right to appeal further complicate it? People will already get their passport back after two weeks, so why this additional complication?

business of the house (today): Clause 1 — Seizure of passports etc from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism (15 December 2014)

Julian Smith: After two weeks, the individual will get their passport back anyway. This is a really wishy-washy way of carrying on, and we should either be confident that this is a good measure or not. They will get their passport back within two weeks.

Funeral Services: Clause 18 — Authority-to-carry schemes (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: We are all aware that Eurotunnel is expanding its services, with more train services going to the continent. Will the Minister confirm that the provisions will apply to those services?

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: It will be almost two years since the Liberal Democrats and one or two other Members scuppered the Communications Data Bill. What is the Minister’s assessment of the risk of waiting until next year, because my concern is that the enemy is not going away?

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that a mechanism is already in place, because David Anderson is conducting a review of the rules and regulations. In tabling the amendments, the hon. Gentleman has jumped the gun. Surely we have to wait for David Anderson’s report.

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: The right hon. Gentleman makes a powerful case for us to go further. What would he do now? He has made it clear that there are many technologies that need much more scrutiny and oversight. What would he do if he were in charge?

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: On that point—

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Does my right hon. Friend agree that this provision does not keep up with the technology, and that much more has to happen and will happen? Will he clarify his party’s position on the changes that will have to come?

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 December 2014)

Julian Smith: Will the shadow Minister explain a bit more of her party’s thoughts on making further changes in communications data and retention, because as she knows we need to do much more in this area and this is only the start?
