Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I did know about the Canadian Prime Minister, but I forgot about him. Perhaps I should not have done. We also looked at post-charge questioning, because, again, it is a crucial issue. Is it true that we could question people post-charge and get the same quality of information? The response was that in the view of many in the legal system, which, again, includes Lord Carlile, post-charge...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: The right hon. Gentleman makes an important point. Of course, nobody in this House would ever want an innocent person to be held. To date, we have not seen any innocent person being held—[Hon. Members: "Yes, we have."] All right, up to 14 days, but not 28 days. The fact is that we face exceptional circumstances involving horrific terrorist activities. Hon. Gentlemen decry the fact that I...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: If I thought for one moment that the Bill would result in that scenario, I would not support the Government, but I do not believe that it will.

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: My hon. Friend says it as it is. To date, I have not received one letter from my Muslim community. I have spoken to the imams, who have no reservations about this—and let me tell him that if they had, they would have expressed them. The fact is that I really do not need any other Member to tell me my responsibilities. I have made sure that my community is comfortable with this measure. Is...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I have tried to conclude three times, Mr. Deputy Speaker, but here we go.

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: As I just said, I have spoken to my Muslim community. I was very clear about addressing the issues and to date, no member of it has made a statement that the measure would ratchet up concerns. The hon. Gentleman is right to present the case, but I am saying to him that I do not have that problem. Perhaps Stockton, South is an exception to the rule; I do not happen to believe that it is. I...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I think that it is time for me to end. I have attempted to do so four times. I end by quoting from a book that I read some time ago and recommended to the Public Bill Committee. It is a clear, well-executed book, called "Celsius 7/7" by the hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove). I believe that what he says in that book needs at least to be heard, even if it is not agreed with. He says:...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend, and Friend he is. I have listened carefully. What he is requesting is in the Bill, according to my reading. If an extension from 28 days is to be made, a High Court judge must approve that, on the evidence presented to him or her.

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: It is a great pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for East Hampshire (Mr. Mates). I rarely quote from The Sunday Telegraph, but today I want to quote from an article by Matthew d'Ancona in that paper because he presents the case and asks the appropriate question better than I could when he says: "We face a threat that is indeed new in scale, ambition, and complexity. The question is...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: My hon. Friend is absolutely right that we have a great deal of support and affection for each other. I do not believe that I had then the amount of evidence or information that I have now. I have seriously taken time to garner the information that is available, and perhaps I should have done so previously, but the evidence presented by ACPO was clear. In the interval between November 2006...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way again, and I assure him that I am listening to him. A letter from the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, which has been placed in the Library, makes it clear that "the more recent 28-day period was used in the course of an operation in 2006 that is currently sub judice and cannot be discussed publicly due to the imminent...

Orders of the Day: "Part IV — Bail (11 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Is the hon. Gentleman saying that Lord Carlile's statements to the Committee were inaccurate and misleading? He said that the US Attorney-General had executive witness detention capability and was allowed to hold people for up to a year. He also said that similar powers were held by France and other countries, and that legal systems differ so much that comparisons are nonsensical. Was Lord...

Point of Order: Counter-Terrorism Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (10 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: It is totally unfair to suggest that we have not had ample time to discuss this Bill. I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Meirionnydd Nant Conwy (Mr. Llwyd), who made his point about the Committee proceedings well. We started discussing this Bill in mid-April. We held an evidence session on 22 April, when we heard from people who were both for and against the Bill. We went into the...

Point of Order: Counter-Terrorism Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (10 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: The House is always faced with time problems, and there is always more business than time for discussion. I would not have taken up the time of the House if the nonsense that we have heard had not been spoken. Without that, we could have started the debate half an hour ago, and yes, I do believe that we can get through all the amendments before us.

[Mr. Bill Olner in the Chair] — Cardiac Disease (Young People) (10 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr. Olner. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr. Jones) on securing this very important debate. In March 2004, I had the great privilege of presenting to the House the Cardiac Risk in the Young (Screening) Bill. More than 100 hon. Members wanted to sponsor my private Member's Bill and, on the day, the Back Benches...

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Biofuels (5 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Is the hon. Gentleman saying that the Conservative party will support a moratorium but not the continuance of biofuels?

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Biofuels (5 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: Does my hon. Friend also accept the findings of the Renewable Energy Association that the additional land needed for biofuels could be 75 million to 220 million hectares? The important point is that that will account for 2 per cent. of productive land by 2030. Will my hon. Friend acknowledge that we are not talking about taking masses of land away from food production? We are taking a very...

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Biofuels (5 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: The absolute fact for all of us in the House is that if we do not start sorting out the common agricultural policy, we will be talking about food prices when our children are as old as we are. The fact is that we have mountains of goodness knows what, but the prices are kept high.

[Mr. David Amess in the Chair] — Biofuels (5 Jun 2008)

Dari Taylor: It is always a pleasure to speak in Westminster Hall with you in the Chair, Mr. Amess. I extend that compliment to the hon. Member for South Suffolk (Mr. Yeo), whom I congratulate on securing the debate and on publishing a thoughtful paper on the sustainability of biofuels. Many of us—not only Members of the House, but other people—are talking about climate change, transport costs,...
