Drone Users: Registration (10 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: Of course. It would not be a debate without someone giving way to the hon. Gentleman.

Drone Users: Registration (10 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I completely agree, which is why I said I think we all agree that we need more robust regulations and a registration scheme. I think most users do not dispute that but they do dispute the proportionality and cost. The scheme needs to be effective, because there is criminal activity in prisons—terrorism and other things, as I mentioned. How it will do anything to deter people who use drones...

Drone Users: Registration (10 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: I have some sympathy with that and it is the thrust of what I am coming to. The scheme as it stands will put everybody in the same pot, treat everybody in the same way, when actually the activity is already policing itself, with existing members of model clubs, very well. How can we expand that expertise and build on what we already have, rather than trying to come up with something...

Drone Users: Registration (10 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: To an extent. The exact statistics are that out of 55 airprox incidents—near misses—in the six months to May 2019 in the consolidated drone, balloon and model category, drones accounted for 49, unknown objects—Martians or whatever else—for five, and balloons for one, so model aircraft were not anywhere near the level that drones were at. It is therefore clear why most model aircraft...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Marriage of same-sex couples in Northern Ireland (9 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: The hon. Gentleman is being generous in taking interventions. I am very pleased to have added my name to his new clause, and I speak as somebody who did not vote for the same-sex marriage Bill originally, but the world has not fallen in since. I would not vote to change the law and this is a matter of equal opportunities for people across the United Kingdom. I believe in the Union and...

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, how many requests for diplomatic access to the Tibet Autonomous Region were submitted by Government officials (a) in the UK and (b) working at the British embassy in Beijing in each of the last five years; and how many of those requests were granted.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Tibet: British Nationals Abroad (9 Jul 2019)

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: China: Diplomatic Service (9 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what restrictions the UK Government places on diplomats from China travelling in the UK; and who is responsible for those diplomats.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Family Justice Panel: Public Appointments (9 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what criteria was used to appoint the members of the Family Justice panel; and what gender balance requirements were applied.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: The Non-Contentious Probate (Fees) Order 2018 went through Committee at the beginning of the year but has still not been subject to a vote here. Given that the proposed increase, for no additional work, from £215 to potentially £6,000 has been described as an abuse of the Lord Chancellor’s fee-levying powers, has he had second thoughts and decided to reject this iniquitous proposal?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: What does that mean?

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Youth Services (4 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: What recent steps he has taken to improve the quality of local youth services.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Youth Services (4 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: “Positive for Youth” was the Government’s last comprehensive youth policy document. It contained many good examples of joint project working between local authorities and charities and philanthropic businesses, a pledge to youth-proof Government policy, and a pledge to publish annually a set of national measures to demonstrate progress in improving outcomes for young people. When does...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (4 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: Will the Minister update the House on the prospect of the Bayeux tapestry coming to this country on loan after Bayeux museum is temporarily closed after 2020?

Attorney General: Sexual Abuse Conviction Rates (4 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: What recent steps he has taken to improve conviction rates in sexual abuse trials.

Attorney General: Sexual Abuse Conviction Rates (4 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: Court business continues to be dominated by historic sex abuse cases, while conviction rates for recent crimes remain depressingly low. Does the Minister agree that the securing of convictions needs more up-front working, with victims, witnesses, social services, Victim Support, the police and other agencies, to make it easier for victims to come forward and to make the court system more user...

Children’S Palliative Care (1 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: My hon. Friend is a great ambassador on this very important subject. I pay tribute to the Chestnut Tree House hospice, which does such a fantastic job in West Sussex. Does she acknowledge that, because of medical technological advances, many of these children will live for much longer than was anticipated many years ago, and for many of them this is about not care in a hospice but outreach...

Department for Education (1 Jul 2019)

Tim Loughton: As I said earlier, the extra funding is welcome, but it takes us from the bottom of the last decile to the top. A moment ago, my right hon. Friend mentioned a balanced approach. Will he at least make some mention of children’s social care? So far he has not mentioned it once, although it is the issue on which I focused most of my speech.
