Port Business Rates (17 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: That would be quick.

Port Business Rates (17 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate, which I think is the second that we have had in Westminster Hall on this subject. Given what he has just revealed about what Scotline's liability should have been, does he think that there is a case for investigating the Valuation Office Agency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Working Neighbourhoods Fund (9 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: North East Lincolnshire council was allocated more than £13 million of working neighbourhood funding. However, to date, it has used just £1.5 million of that. Will my right hon. Friend tell me what checks are made on councils to see that they are actually using the money for the purpose for which it is intended? I fear that some of my constituents could have lost out because the council has...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 39 (23 Feb 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I have already taken that advice on board, Mr. Cook, which is why I have moved from where I was sitting this morning. I will now be able to catch your eye whenever I wish this afternoon. I have sympathy with some of the new clauses about wheel-clampers. During the evidence sittings, it became apparent to me that we do not really need wheel-clamping firms. Whatever the Minister says about...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 39 (23 Feb 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I appreciate that clarification. It is, therefore, correct that the firms rely on ignorance of the law by issuing things that look, to all intents and purposes, like a penalty charge notice. They have the same lay-out and use the same typefaces, and they threaten to take one to court, even though they cannot do so. I am worried that the unintended consequence of what we are doing for the...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 39 (23 Feb 2010)

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 14 (4 Feb 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I am pleased that the Opposition amendments have not been accepted. I fear that had they been accepted, fewer criminals  would be brought to justice. There is a flipside to the argument. We have been focusing on people being apprehended for crimes, but DNA and a robust DNA database can also clear people of crimes. It gives an additional tool for the police and authorities to eliminate people...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 14 (4 Feb 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I think I understand where the hon. Gentleman is coming from. However, a couple of years ago, I spent a large part of the summer recess on jury service and the cases I had to decide upon were serious sexual offences. There were two separate and serious cases—both harrowing—in which the accused were found not guilty, but as I know the Scottish legal system, I hazard a guess—

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 14 (4 Feb 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I totally accept that, Mr. Cook. However, in mitigation, I was prompted to mention Scotland because the Opposition seem to rely on the Scottish system so much to justify their amendments. A robust DNA database is about justice for the victims of serious crimes. Having been a member of a jury hearing the gruesome details of such crimes, I am pleased that we have a DNA database and that the DNA...
