Alison Thewliss: .... The community there are a model in the work that they do in reaching out to the wider community. They do regular community clean-ups, and they hold events to raise funds for Yorkhill Children’s Charity. Indeed, one of my first invitations as an MP was to start, and run in, the 5 km race that they held in Kelvingrove park. It was an absolute pleasure to run alongside them and to...

Armed Forces Bill: Second Reading (11 Feb 2016)

Lord Ramsbotham: ...in America. There have been numerous studies and reports on veterans in the criminal justice system by bodies such as the Centre for Mental Health, the Howard League for Penal Reform and, most recently, a commission sponsored by Lord Ashcroft, of which I was a commissioner.

Trade Union Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Feb 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Campbell-Savours, for tabling this amendment and sparking this debate.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Funding — Question for Short Debate (9 Feb 2016)

Lord Craig of Radley: My Lords, I, too, commend the noble Lord, Lord Luce, for securing this all-too-brief debate. If money is short, why not try melding better together the efforts of charity and other bodies with those of FCO staffs in posts overseas? I am a fellow of the Commonwealth Partnership for Technology Management—CPTM, for short. It has a remarkable track record: more than 20 years of organising...

Criminal Cases Review Commission (Information) Bill (5 Feb 2016)

William Wragg: ...how robust and rigorous our criminal justice system is, indicating that no evidence of a miscarriage of justice was to be found in the original case.

Islam Extremism — Question (3 Feb 2016)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, we understand that the Charities Commission has been doing some work on domestic sources, looking particularly at the role of Muslim charities.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Rates (Amendment) Bill: Further Consideration Stage (1 Feb 2016)

Leslie Cree: ...men and women across Northern Ireland. Mr Swann asked me to make sure I put that in. In previous exchanges with officials and special advisers, it was implied that pigeon clubs as registered charities was the answer. However, that is not the case, and it is an easy cop out because it would place a disproportionate burden on clubs that have the ability to take up the opportunity, against...

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ..., injuries and accidents with 80 BAC. This was because the Government more vigorously enforced the limit than did many other countries, even though some had lower limits than we had. This House produced two EU Select Committee reports on the Commission’s call for a 50 BAC limit in 1998 and 2002. Both supported the Commission’s recommendations. In response to the first, the...

Public Advocate Bill [HL]: Second Reading (29 Jan 2016)

Lord Wood of Anfield: ...is clear: to act on behalf of the bereaved as an adviser during the investigation and inquest; to get access to documentation that the families would not be able to access and to report on the contents; and to require resources, commission advice and issue reports.
