Public Sector Pay (24 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: The budgets of West Sussex schools are hugely under pressure and will be completely shot unless this pay award is completely funded centrally. Will the Chief Secretary guarantee that it will be completely funded centrally?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: Last year, 7.3 million people were prescribed antidepressants, including more than 70,000 children. That is an increase of more than 500% in the past 20 years. In welcoming the Secretary of State’s announcement on social prescribing, may I, as co-chair of the all-party group on mindfulness, ask him what part mindfulness and other evidence-based non-drug options will play in the...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Coroners’ investigations into still-births (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 4, page 2, line 23, lea ve out subsection (4). This amendment and Amendment 4 make a drafting change in response to Amendments 5 and 7 and NC3.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Coroners’ investigations into still-births (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: We are almost there. Amendments 3 to 7 are minor technical amendments to clause 4 to improve the drafting in light of the amendments to clause 1, although those do not materially affect the operation of the provisions. Amendments 9 and 10 amend clause 5: Extent, commencement and short title. Amendment 9 enables consequential amendments to be made to UK-wide legislation, although the...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I beg to move amendment 10, in clause 5, page 3, line 14, lea ve out subsections (2) and (3) and insert— ‘( ) This Act comes into force at the end of the period of two months beginning with the day on which it is passed.” The amendment provides for the Bill to come into force two months after it receives Royal Assent.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: This is just the fiddly bit at the end of the Bill, which I am sure hon. Members will not want to be detained much longer on. The amendment deals with the extent, commencement and short title. It comes into force when the Secretary of State decides and is tied down to two months after the Act is passed. The rest of the clause is absolutely self-explanatory. I therefore propose that the clause...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Supplementary provision about regulations (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: On a point of order, Mr Sharma. May I thank you for expertly chairing all the technical bits in particular of proceedings? I thank right hon. and hon. Members for attending, staying here in this heat and agreeing with so much of the Bill, and for all their contributions. I also thank the Minister, and I will particularly thank her when she produces the goods on civil partnerships, as we hope...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Coroners’ investigations into still-births (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: The clause is an enabling clause. It gives Ministers the power to give authority to coroners to investigate stillbirths. It empowers them to do that by amending the 2009 Act; the matter would not need to be revisited. The exact terms on which Ministers will give the power is subject to the report that is being prepared. To return to the hon. Gentleman’s amendments, the work is happening...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on registration of pregnancy loss (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I am grateful for the great support from the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West. She shares my reservations about the way the committee is going. But with the comments we have made, and the support of the Minister and the new Health Minister, I think we will achieve a satisfactory conclusion in due course. The hon. Lady also mentioned her daughter Lucy. It was mentioned on Second...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Coroners’ investigations into still-births (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: On that basis, we will do things very quickly. I will comment on amendments 17 and 18, which the hon. Gentleman has moved. However, I will just need to speak to clause 4 stand part and amendment 15, which has been tabled in my name and that of the Minister. Amendment 17 addresses the issue of coroners having the power to investigate. Currently, under the Coroners and Justice Act 2009,...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: Obviously I would like the Minister to go further, but will she at least acknowledge that it is in principle possible to amend the Bill on Report, were that to be at the end of October, to satisfy the findings of the Supreme Court? Alternatively, she alluded to the possibility, without going into detail, of an even faster way of doing it, in which case the Government’s priority is to do...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I rise to respond to the amendments that the hon. Member for Harrow West spoke to. In principle, I am very supportive of them. That may be a slight surprise, as I was not the biggest fan of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 for reasons at the time, but it has become law and the world has not fallen in. It will remain law, and I certainly would not vote to change it. I believe in law...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I am exceedingly grateful to the hon. Gentleman. On that basis, I will sit down—let’s get on with it.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on registration of pregnancy loss (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: We come to the subject of pregnancy loss. On Second Reading, many Committee members spoke with extraordinary passion and eloquence about stillbirth. I am sure that no one will object to me singling out the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West. I said at the time that Labour MPs often reduce Government Members to tears, but in that case she did so for the right reasons. That was a...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman. Wherever that nervousness came from and on account of what, now is the time to be bold and to comply with the highest court in the land. The Secretary of State ruled out the abolition of civil partnerships. If that had happened, it would have left the 63,966 same-sex couples who at the end of 2016 had been through a civil partnership and still have...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill: Report on civil partnership (18 Jul 2018)

Tim Loughton: I see the point the hon. Gentleman is getting to. My earlier, cruder attempts were to amend the Civil Partnerships Act 2004, which is UK-wide. We have civil partnerships in all parts of the United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland, but we do not have same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. That is the point of his amendments, and we will come to that. Absolutely, I want to extend civil...
