Defence Procurement (17 Jul 2002)

Rachel Squire: I was aware that they were in the Government's own document but, as became clear during the Minister's speech, in this House the interpretation of any quoted figures is often very much subject to—shall we say?—political bias. I trust that the extra defence spending that was announced on Monday will be delivered. The Government have already shown their commitment to, and acknowledged the...

Rachel Squire: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. I thank hon. Members on both sides of the House for their support for the Bill.

The amendment will simply ensure that clause 2 is amended to come into force on Royal Assent. A commencement order will then need to be made under subsection (2) to bring the remainder of the Bill into force. Amendment agreed to. Clause 2, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Public Bill Committee: Copyright (Visually Impaired Persons) Bill: Clause 1 - Amendment of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988, (1 May 2002)

Rachel Squire: Thank you. I must speed on and say a little more about the other new clauses to explain why I believe that clause 1 should not stand part of the Bill. New clause 3 would introduce a new section into the 1988 Act about intermediate copies and records in connection with multiple accessible copies that can be made under the new exception introduced by new clause 2. That would mean that an...

Public Bill Committee: Copyright (Visually Impaired Persons) Bill: Clause 1 - Amendment of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988, (1 May 2002)

Rachel Squire: I thank my hon. Friend for raising that important point. I appreciate the concerns raised by the Publishers Licensing Society and others, but it would be difficult to define precisely a not-for-profit body. If we chose a definition that specified that the main concern and purpose of the body was the production of such material, it would disadvantage many local community groups such as local...
