John Whittingdale: ...sympathise with the BBC when it comes to maintaining impartiality at a time when there are so many diverse views, making it increasingly hard to strike the balance between them.

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Use of a single point of contact (19 Apr 2016)

Robert Buckland: .... Those officers who are responsible for the course of the investigation are not the SPOC. That person is independent and they are at arm’s length. They are therefore able to exercise the objectivity and the sense of self-discipline that is essential if public authorities are to retain our confidence. It is all underpinned by the scrutiny of the IOCCO. In my submission, to move away...

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ... mean that pregnant women are detained in only the most exceptional circumstances when the current policy is already supposed to ensure that?

BBC Charter — Question for Short Debate (10 Mar 2016)

Lord Judd: ...much related to the profile that the BBC continues to have in our society, stretching from local communities in our own society to people in North Korea, for example, who are desperate for truth, objectivity and the rest. We risk its future as a standard-setter at our peril.

Trade Union Political Funds and Political Party Funding — Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2016)

Lord Judd: ...Forsyth, and the contributions by the noble Lords, Lord Cormack and Lord Balfe, the latter of whom I knew in a different context at an earlier stage of my life.

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail(London - West Midlands) Bill: Clause 48 - Compulsory acquisition of land for regeneration or relocation (3 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: ...Minister can see the merit in qualifying that wide-ranging power. The amendment will not inhibit in any way the development or operations of phase 1.

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail(London - West Midlands) Bill: Clause 45 - Transfer Schemes (3 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: The hon. Gentleman makes a very valid and powerful point, but I will come on to deal with the objectivity that he wants to see if such matters ever come to fruition. We in Parliament clearly have many opportunities to monitor and scrutinise the sales of publicly owned property, but one could be forgiven for questioning whether all our parliamentary devices really produce any proper advance...

Andy McDonald: ...of the reasonable individual was originally described as being the judgment of “a reasonably educated and intelligent but nondescript person”, against which a decision could be measured.

EU Membership (Audit of Costs and Benefits) Bill (26 Feb 2016)

Christopher Chope: ...disparity, while at the same time making the scaremongering assertions to which my hon. Friend the Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) has referred.

Friend the Member for Chichester (Mr Tyrie), the...

Trade Union Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (25 Feb 2016)

Baroness Donaghy: ...the issue of the perception of the individual member who finds himself or herself in the middle of all this.

Incidentally,...

Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Office: Sheffield — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (24 Feb 2016)

Nick Clegg: ...Interruption.] They nod as sanctimoniously now as they condemned me then. That’s history, as we say, but that gives me a certain credibility when I claim that I look at this decision with a degree of objectivity. The political subjectivity, of course, comes from the fact that a number of my constituents in south-west Sheffield have been directly affected by it. All of this stems from...

Local Services (Southend) (5 Feb 2016)

Marcus Jones: ...top-down, centralist control. Every authority, including parish councils, was required to put in place a code of conduct that is compliant with the seven Nolan principles of standards in public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

Lord Wood of Anfield: ...assuming that the various agencies of the state—from central to local government, the police, officials staffing inquiries, civil servants and employees of other public bodies—show co-operation, judgment, sensitivity and objectivity towards the families concerned.
