International Endangered Species (3 Mar 2015)

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Child Sexual Exploitation (20 Jan 2015)

Norman Baker: My hon. and learned Friend has reiterated a point that I made in office, and that others have made: the term “prostitution” should not be used in this context.

Will he undertake to...

I was particularly pleased...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 70 - Female genital mutilation protection orders (20 Jan 2015)

Norman Baker: I certainly agree that it is a violence against women issue and that there are no cultural excuses, if the hon. Lady wants to use that particular phrase. I also agree that we must do everything we can to encourage the eradication of FGM in our country. The point I was making was whether her proposal will actually achieve that end or not. We have the same objective; it is simply a question of...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 70 - Female genital mutilation protection orders (20 Jan 2015)

Norman Baker: That was a long intervention. It was longer than my speech, in fact, but I will do my best to respond to it. Of course we must try, and we are trying.
