Written Answers — House of Lords: Cabinet Office: Correspondence (20 Aug 2012)

Lord Prescott: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what correspondence took place between the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Cabinet Office arising out of the letter from Lord Prescott to the Cabinet Secretary of 31 October 2011; what changes were made to the draft of the Cabinet Secretary’s response on 18 and 21 November; and whether they will place a copy of this...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Isle of Sark (6 Aug 2012)

Lord Prescott: To ask Her Majesty’s Government , further to the Written Answer by Lord McNally on 23 July (WA 109), what financial assistance has been given to the Isle of Sark in fulfilling its constitutional obligations on behalf of the Crown for each year since 2008. [HL2054]

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Second Reading (24 Jul 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, in the four minutes available to me, I should like to make one or two points about the Bill. I agree with some of it, but my main concern, as a number of noble Lords have expressed, is the turnout. After all, one hopes to get the highest turnout in democratic participation. Some things in the Bill may improve that. Clause 14 makes it clear that there will no longer be the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Isle of Sark (23 Jul 2012)

Written Answers — House of Lords: Isle of Sark (23 Jul 2012)

Lord Prescott: To ask Her Majesty's Government what financial assistance they provided to the Isle of Sark in each year since 2008 and whether any of that assistance involved payment for litigation on the Isle.

Olympic Games: Security — Statement (16 Jul 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, this is the third time in eight days that Parliament has received assurances from this Government that the security of the Olympic Games will not be compromised. The Government's desperation in drafting in not only the Armed Forces but now the police is an indication of the total failure of the private companies involved to deliver on their contractual requirements to ensure Olympic...

Olympic Games: Security — Statement (12 Jul 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, it is complete nonsense for the Government to suggest that they discovered this problem two days ago. It was two years ago that they realised the deficiencies in the security at the Olympics and transferred private contracts to LOCOG to develop the personnel for security. I have raised in the House of Lords this matter of the deficiencies in contracts and the inability to provide...

Olympic Games: Security — Statement (12 Jul 2012)

Lord Prescott: They bid for the same Olympic contracts.

Voluntary Sector and Social Enterprise — Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Scott, on providing us with this opportunity to debate issues involved in voluntary service and social enterprise. I am sure that most of us have been actively involved in them through our political lives, have enjoyed the work and continue to do so. However, the noble Baroness defined what she thinks is voluntary, and perhaps it is being...

Voluntary Sector and Social Enterprise — Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2012)

Lord Prescott: I take advice and I only take the advice of the advice.

Voluntary Sector and Social Enterprise — Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2012)

Lord Prescott: I apologise. I took advice; obviously I got the wrong advice, but I will not exploit that situation. This whole business now means that a massive pool of cheap labour is going to be exploited, and now G4S even wants to buy the police and replace them with this kind of labour. We had better start looking at what is happening with the exploitation of people. I hope we can have a public debate...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL] — Second Reading (28 May 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I should perhaps declare my interest as standing as a candidate, if elected by my party, for police commissioner. That has caused me to look closely at what the Government are proposing. If doubts have been expressed in this debate and by the Constitution Committee about the courts and the role of the police commissioner, they reflect not uncertainty in the Government but a...

Police: Reduction in Numbers — Question (23 May 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, this policy will reduce the amounts of money for the Humberside police by £30 million and hundreds of front-line police. Is the Minister aware that the number of criminal incidents and those of anti-social behaviour has been reduced considerably by the present force? In those circumstances, does he not accept the charge laid against the Home Secretary last week that a 20% cut...

Leveson Inquiry — Statement (25 Apr 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords-

Leveson Inquiry — Statement (25 Apr 2012)

Lord Prescott: Why is that?

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Third Reading (27 Mar 2012)

Lord Prescott: I certainly do not withdraw the amendment and I hope that the House will vote on it.

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Third Reading (27 Mar 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, Amendment 25 stands in my name and in the names of my noble friend Lord Bach and the noble Baroness, Lady O'Neil of Bengarve. This is a simple but important issue. However, I do not want to delay the House, as we have had a number of debates on these matters. The amendments in this group would retain the recovery of success fees and "after the event" insurance premiums from the...

Police and Crime Commissioners — Question (22 Mar 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, this is a scandalous decision to deny 7 million people, according to the Electoral Commission, the right to vote simply because they do not have access to the website. In my area, Humberside, where I may well have an interest in the future that I perhaps should declare, that will mean 170,000 people, mostly elderly, will be denied their democratic right to information about the...

Legal Aid: Social Welfare Law — Question (5 Mar 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, does the Minister accept that the massive cuts in police resources and manpower are to be replaced by privatised security companies that will do the work of constables but with private personnel? Does he accept that this is more than an operational matter to be discussed with ACPO-that it requires discussion with this House and, indeed, with the community? Does he agree that the...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Committee (6th Day) (30 Jan 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I apologise for missing the first few minutes of this debate. The debate I listened to earlier on Clause 43 showed that there is a great deal of feeling about an injustice being perpetrated here in all forms of the use of no win, no cost. I have been in an interesting situation that I would like to relate to noble Lords as an example of what can happen under these new changes. At...
