Salisbury Update (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right in her identification of the Russian state. What we are is the victim of state terrorism by a state that is run as a gangster organisation, that threatens us all and has done so repeatedly on the international stage, and that is wholly outside the international rules-based system. I greatly agree with her in commending the work of our police and...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I am most grateful to the Minister for the time and trouble she has taken, and to other hon. Members who participated in the debate, my hon. Friend the Member for Montgomeryshire (Glyn Davies) in particular. The points that have been made are all valid. I emphasise that I am not putting this proposal forward as a panacea—there are no panaceas. One of the things that we should have...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I am grateful for the spirit in which the Minister is responding to the debate. As we have examples of what appears to be good practice—it is possible that one is being misled by the examples, which we have to bear in mind—I would be interested to know whether the Government, as well as the CQC, are assessing those companies that are voluntarily using CCTV in common parts and...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I have to make it absolutely clear that I was not suggesting covert surveillance. I have been quite plain about this. As I understand it, the homes that have introduced it have done so overtly. We have a home whose common parts are covered by CCTV and anybody who comes into the home understands that. I am not recommending a form of covert surveillance. I can see how that could be open to...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I come back to my point: in the course of their life, a person might carry out a job under supervision—I used to as a pupil barrister—when somebody might watch what they are doing and tell them what they are doing wrong. One of the difficulties in some care homes is that that is not necessarily happening. I urge the Minister simply to factor in that the chain care homes that I...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I appreciate the hon. Lady’s point. Equally, perhaps one has to bear in mind that if we move out of the total privacy of a room in which we sit alone, we are observed by other people. That is part of our lives. There is a strange irony in the fact that we are perfectly happy to say, “This is wonderful—the meal time is so well supervised by staff,” but if it is...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I entirely endorse that. CCTV cannot be a substitute for good quality care. The examples I gave showed that, in areas where there is an attempt at delivering really good quality care, CCTV has served to improve it, but clearly if a care home simply relied on CCTV as a failsafe, that might be even worse than the current position.

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I beg to move, That this House has considered CCTV for communal areas of care homes. It is a great pleasure to move this motion under your chairmanship, Sir David. I was pleased to be successful in the ballot, as the debate gives me an opportunity to raise with the House and the Minister my concerns about what more could be done to improve safety and security in our care homes. I hope it may...

Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty (23 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: It was my understanding that it was a policy decision of the United Kingdom Government—which I do not criticise in any way—that we would not seek the return of these two individuals to the United Kingdom for public interest reasons, and indeed have deprived them of their UK nationality. However, is it not the case that to move on from there to facilitate their going to the United...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: No, it is because they are useless.

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: There is one matter on which I agree with my right hon. Friend the Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis), and that is that this piece of legislation is needed if we are leaving the EU. That is the first basic point that needs to be made in considering this Bill on Report. Then one has to consider why the Report stage becomes so controversial. The difficulty is that throughout the...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: Is not one of the features of these two amendments the fact that they would not do what their proposers seek them to do? The fact that the Government have chosen to accept amendments that are unnecessary and useless shows that the only intention behind their tabling was malevolent? The fact that they are being maintained at the present time is also an act of malevolence towards the...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: Customs Arrangements — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: Is it not also the case that if we are going to approach this negotiation, we have to look at it—as in any good negotiation—from the other side’s point of view? For the other side, the issue is that they are part of an international treaty that is underpinned by a rulebook. If we are going to ask them to adjust their rulebook to accommodate us, we will have to show that we...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Meaning of “ivory” (4 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I am very grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. I have not involved myself in the passage of this Bill, but I was intrigued by what consideration had been given to probate valuation. If someone is the owner of a Giambologna cup made of ivory, which is potentially worth millions, and which could have an exemption certificate granted to it, but they never apply for one and they die and...

Detainee Mistreatment and Rendition (2 Jul 2018)

Dominic Grieve: It is not the role of the ISC to take a view on whether there should be a judge-led inquiry. That is a matter for the Government and for this House. What I think can and should be said about this matter, and which may be helpful for the Minister, are three points. First, as the Minister will appreciate, when the report was published, the Committee was extremely disappointed that it was not...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I rise on behalf of my constituents to say that, in my judgment, this development is one that should be supported. About 750 of my constituents are directly employed at Heathrow airport, but many thousands more are economically dependent on its success. It might well be that if we were starting from scratch, Heathrow airport would not be developed on the site where it is at present, but the...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Dominic Grieve: I take my right hon. Friend’s point, but the modelling that will have to take place even before the development proceeds ought to be capable of identifying whether that will happen. If it is to fall on the taxpayer to compensate for the failure of the scheme once it starts, that is something the Secretary of State will have to take full account of before giving any approval. For those...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

Dominic Grieve: My right hon. Friend will be aware that Heathrow is a vital economic hub, but because of that, the traffic congestion that surrounds it is a really serious problem, particularly in parts of my constituency, where the emissions levels are high and the roads are almost impassable. Can he give me an assurance that, in looking at the development of a third runway, attention will be given to...
