Copyright and Rights in Performances (Personal Copies for Private Use) Regulations 2014: Motion to Approve (29 July 2014)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for her introduction of the draft statutory instruments. Last week we welcomed her to her new role and to the debate on extended collective licensing. Today’s debate, as we have already seen—and I agree with a huge amount of what the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, said—is much more controversial. We debated copyright exceptions on...

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill [HL]: Report (29 July 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I do not propose to seek the opinion of the House on this but I would welcome further discussion to clarify what I think is not clear at the moment. It seems that if a person dies having made a complaint, it is just a matter for the defence counsel. I do not doubt their good will, their desire to appease the family and so on, but with a formal complaints system it should be more...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Committee (4th Day) (28 July 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Beecham: My Lords, the amendments in this group essentially stem from the third report of the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee, published on 11 July. They deal with the Bill’s provisions in relation to the requirements on applicants for judicial review to disclose information about their financial resources or, critically, those of third parties—that is to say, someone...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Care Homes: Standards (28 July 2014)

Earl Howe: Progress is being made in nearly every trust and the Chief Inspector of Hospitals has recommended that five of the initial 11 placed in special measures a year ago should come out. As a result the Department and its arm’s length bodies are finally turning around performance in failing hospitals. The Government will no longer tolerate services which persistently fail to reach an...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Death (28 July 2014)

Lord Faulks: The government is committed to open and transparent reporting of deaths in custody and publish statistics on deaths in prison custody in England and Wales quarterly in the National Statistics “Safety in Custody” bulletin. This statistical series can be found at www.gov.uk/government/collections/safety-in-custody -statistics. The number of (i) deaths in prison custody and...

This statistical series can be found at www.gov.uk/government/collections/safety-in-custody-statisti cs. The number of individuals committing at least one...

Written Answers — House of Lords: UN Convention against Torture (28 July 2014)

Lord Avebury: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they have taken or propose to take to remedy the shortcomings identified by the United Nations Committee Against Torture in the United Kingdom’s compliance with the United Nations Convention against Torture in May 2013 in relation to (1) the alleged torture of Tamil returnees from the United Kingdom, (2) the lack of accountability in...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Civil Service Commission: Triennial Review (28 July 2014)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: In accordance with the guidance on triennial reviews for public bodies, the Government has asked Sir Gerry Grimstone to lead a review of the Civil Service Commission.  This will be the first review of the Commission’s status and role since its creation in statute in the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010. The review’s purpose will be to establish the continuing...

European Union Committee: Report on 2013-14 (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

The Earl of Caithness: My Lords, I am the new boy to the European Union Committee, having joined it in May, so it is not for me to sing the praises of what the committee does. I will leave that to the words of Maroa `efcovic, the Commissioner for Inter-Institutional Relations, when he stated in evidence to the committee, quoted at paragraph 1 of our report, that, “the House of Lords is one of the...

Agriculture and Food Industry — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Baroness Northover: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Plumb for calling this important debate, not least because it enables us to emphasise the huge contribution that our farmers and those in our food industry make to the economy. I feel immensely privileged to be answering the noble Lord. This is my opportunity to tell him that, when I was young, I recall my father, a tenant farmer, speaking in...

Health: Organic Food — Question for Short Debate (24 July 2014)

Baroness Jolly: My Lords, this has been an interesting debate and I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Taverne for prompting it. I am grateful also to the noble Baroness, Lady Miller, and the noble Viscount, Lord Ridley, for their informed and expert contributions, as well as for challenges from the noble Lord, Lord Hunt. We need to set this debate in a wider context. Noble Lords will be well aware of the...

Universal Declaration of Human Rights — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, I am afraid that in the very short time I have, because we are running a little in this debate, it will be impossible to respond to everybody on every point that has been made. I apologise for that. I was also going to apologise that, in this instance, I am summing up on something that is so very much the subject of my noble friend Lady Warsi. In preparing for this debate, I read...

Standing Orders (Private Business) — Motion to Approve (24 July 2014)

Moved by The Chairman of Committees That the Standing Orders relating to Private Business be amended as follows: Standing Order 12 Posting of notices in case of tramway, etc., bills (HC 12) Line 11, after “in” insert “, or where that is not reasonably practicable, in some conspicuous position as close as is reasonably practicable to,” Line 15, after the first...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (23 July 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I am very conscious of the lateness of the hour and I shall be as brief as I possibly can. This amendment, together with Amendment 69 which follows it, seeks to deal with matters which may have been overlooked when the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 was passing through Parliament. They both relate to the Supreme Court, provision for which was made in Part 3 of the Act. I tabled both...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (23 July 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Lord Low of Dalston: My Lords, I am grateful to all those who have spoken in this debate. It bears out my contention that there is concern about this issue across the House. Indeed, that concern is shared by the Government. Like the Minister, I would hope that we are not yet at the end of this discussion and that discussions and work can continue with a view to finding a solution around which we can all unite. We...

Wales Bill — Second Reading (22 July 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, it is a great privilege to follow the noble and learned Lord, who has unparalleled experience in these matters. I found myself in agreement with much of what he said. I also join the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan, in saying that it was a great pleasure to see the Secretary of State here for the beginning of the debate. It signals a close working relationship with us and indeed with...

Disabled People (Developing Countries) (22 July 2014)

James Duddridge: It is a pleasure to be here on this warm day and to see the Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for New Forest West (Mr Swayne), in his place. I congratulate him enormously on his elevation to Minister of State in the Department for International Development, which is well deserved and comes on the back of many years’ work in the area in Rwanda and beyond. I thank Mr Speaker for...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals): Backbench Business — Summer Adjournment (22 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Chris Bryant: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bosworth (David Tredinnick) on his speech. I disagreed with every word of it. I was intrigued to hear that he is the chair of what I think he called the Government herb committee. That conjured images from my childhood of the television programme, “The Herbs”. Parsley the Lion, Dill the Dog, Lady Rosemary and Bayleaf the Gardener all went...

Healthier Together Programme (Greater Manchester) — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (22 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

David Nuttall: The hon. Lady makes a good point. The vast majority of the public would, in an ideal world, like every service to be provided at their local hospital, so that they could have everything just by travelling a couple of miles. In a perfect world, they would have every conceivable treatment available at their nearest hospital. However, they have long since accepted, and we all know, that that is...

[Mr Adrian Sanders in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Refugee Camps (22 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Jim Shannon: It is a pleasure to make a contribution, Mr Sanders, and I thank the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Pauline Latham) for securing this debate and creating the opportunity. It is a pleasure to follow all the speakers, as it will be to listen to those who follow. I am pleased that the issue has been raised today, although I feel that we do not remind ourselves of it often enough. It is good to...
