Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 106 — Removal from listed judicial offices (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: I did not rise to the bait in respect of clause 107, but I do want to contribute to this debate. As the hon. Member for Stone (Mr. Cash) said, these are deep waters, but I hope that their very depth will protect me to some extent. I want to make three points, but first I should declare an interest. I am a member of the Bar of Northern Ireland and also hold the rank of Queen's Counsel there....

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 106 — Removal from listed judicial offices (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: The hon. Member for Beaconsfield has done the Committee a service and the provision can now be read in terms of Pepper v. Hart—that the Bill sets out the exclusive membership of the tribunal. The first thing that must happen is that the tribunal must be constituted. It must then conclude that there has been misbehaviour on the part of a judge, or that that judge is unable to perform the...

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 106 — Removal from listed judicial offices (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: No, it means that someone must listen seriously. I accept that it does not mean that someone must do as they are told; but it means that someone must listen to what their consultees have told them. I disagree with my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock Chase (Tony Wright), one of my neighbours in the west midlands, who spoke about the logic that would lead to people who sit as recorders—as...

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 106 — Removal from listed judicial offices (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: I simply point out that the Lord Chief Justice is one of four members of the tribunal and, obviously, a persuasive voice in the proceedings of that tribunal.

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 37 — Jurisdiction (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: I oppose the amendments. I do so, first, for selfish reasons. English law has benefited enormously from the Scots' contribution in terms of both personnel and the substantive law. For their contribution of personnel, we need only look at the great jurist Lord Reid—a Scottish Law Lord, a former Advocate-General, I believe, and a Member of this House. For their contribution to the substantive...

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 37 — Jurisdiction (1 Feb 2005)

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 20 — The Supreme Court (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: Judges already do that in the context of their judgments, although they might not put it in exactly those terms. The Law Commission, for example, will often draw on what judges have said about changes in the law. A judge might say, "I have to decide this case in this way, but there is a problem with that." That is something that the Law Commission should look at. That judge might suggest that...

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] — [2nd Allotted Day]: Clause 20 — The Supreme Court (1 Feb 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: The hon. Member for Beaconsfield (Mr. Grieve) began with the location of the court. He rightly said that the Judicial Committee of the House of Lords currently operates in a seminar style. I have appeared before the House on several occasions and my experience is of academic, to quote the hon. Gentleman, discussion. It is the sort of discussion that needs close interaction and a dialogue...

Professor Ross Cranston: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assessment she has made of the implications for competition of pubs and nightclubs being obliged to charge minimum prices for alcohol as a means of tackling alcohol misuse; and if she will make a statement.

Iraq (31 Jan 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: A tragic shadow is cast by the death of our servicemen, but my right hon. Friend was absolutely right to enthuse about the response of Iraqis to democracy, which certainly puts paid to what a number of the doubting Thomases in this country have been peddling. In terms of the next stage under resolution 1546, does he think that there is any mileage in making available the UK experience with...

Measures to Combat Terrorism (26 Jan 2005)

Professor Ross Cranston: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on the expedition with which he has acted and the inspired way in which he has responded to the very difficult and challenging judgement by the House of Lords. For what it is worth, I accept his view and that of his predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Blunkett), that there is a real threat that must be addressed....
