Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: Welcome to your place, Madam Deputy Speaker, and thank you for squeezing me in at the end of the debate. For the many reasons explained in the many excellent speeches from hon. Members on both sides of the House, I have been really impressed and pleased that the Government have thought this issue through afresh, which is significant, given the previous inquiries and many debates on it. The...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: The right hon. Gentleman is making a powerful case, and he has just mentioned a point that I was going to make. Many of the people who were badly affected have not been catered for to date. They include constituents of mine whose father was infected and who died. They ended up in a children’s home and their lives have been totally devastated, yet they are not within this process. They...

Money Laundering: British Banks (21 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: It seems to me, and to many others, that there is an unwritten deal here: that Russians and others of dubious or illegal means can essentially come to this country, send their kids to our schools, buy our real estate or our sports clubs and get involved in this country on the basis—this is the other side of the deal—that they do no wrong while they are here. That is not an...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: The hon. Gentleman must tell me for which other type of application people do not pay a fee. Why is it only employment tribunals for which he does not want fees to be paid?

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: I congratulate Justice Ministers on bringing forward this very competent Bill. I very much appreciated the helpful and informative briefings on, and technology demonstrations for, the proposed court reforms that were organised by my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister for Courts and Justice. In many aspects of prisons, court and litigation policy, the Bill moves the debate forward in a...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: I totally agree with the hon. Lady. Fraud is an important part of the overall situation, but the criminal side is not dealt with in the Bill. I asked the Minister earlier if he would address that issue. At the time of LASPO, it was considered that 5% to 7% of claims were fraudulent. The latest ABI information I have seen is 1% or perhaps less, which would suggest that there has been a...

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: Is it not the case that if someone can get something for nothing, they are likely to take it up? That was the core problem with employment tribunals when people had to pay nothing to get access. It is right that if one goes to court, one pays some sort of fee.

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: indicated dissent.

Prisons and Courts Bill (20 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: It is quite the opposite. I am suggesting that the hon. Gentleman’s policy would be giving something for nothing.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Insurance Premiums (7 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: There seems to be some element of confusion in the minds of the public. The insurance industry says that car insurance premiums will go up because of the fall in the discount rate, while the Government, quite rightly, say that insurance premiums should come down because of the proposed changes in the Prisons and Courts Bill. Is this a question of netting off, with no change to premiums at...

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: Will it also include the names and titles of people from whom the assets have been taken?

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: I am grateful for the Minister’s clarification. It would be helpful if he could say that it is the Government’s position that, when a prosecution is taken under these new provisions, the court should consider a visa exclusion automatically and not as a possible add-on. Clearly, if the sanctioned person had his or her assets confiscated but could then go on to buy more assets or to...

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: My hon. Friend says that visa bans are for another day, but of course visa bans already exist as a possibility. Would it not be helpful to know how the existing visa ban system will complement the new proposal?

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: I am pleased to be given the opportunity to speak to this significant legislation, which will certainly help the overall objective of stopping the UK being used as a safe harbour for illegal proceeds, as it currently is all too frequently. Like Sergei Magnitsky, I practised as a corporate lawyer, and I have asked myself whether, in his situation in Russia, uncovering the largest tax fraud, I...

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: Have the Government considered whether any application should go first to the Attorney General before being allowed to proceed? That might stop the abuse that the Minister is suggesting.

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: The point about the Magnitsky Act in the US is that it pulls together the visa ban, the ban on using American banks and the inability to trade there; the advantage is that it is all pulled together. I appreciate that the scenario is different in this country, but will the Minister please explain how he intends to pull the links together in this country, using the different pieces of existing...

Article 50 (24 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: Will triggering article 50 be adequate to release us from other related treaty obligations under the 1972 Act, such as our membership of the European economic area?

Trident: Test Firing (23 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: In certain theatres of war, such as Ukraine, Russia has been testing and refining its electronic and cyber-warfare techniques. Although I am not blaming Russia for this incident, will the opportunity now be taken to review the system’s protections against possible electronic counter-measures?

New Partnership with the EU (17 Jan 2017)

Jonathan Djanogly: As the Secretary of State said, giving up our membership of the EU and the single market is not incompatible with our negotiating access to the single market, either in whole or in part, but has he yet considered the red lines he might put down on what we pay for such access?

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (16 Nov 2016)

Jonathan Djanogly: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Eastbourne (Caroline Ansell) on securing this tremendous debate. In the few minutes I have, I shall explain a little of the reasoning behind the Balfour declaration. It is unusual because it was not a settlement or reaction to any kind of nationalist war or terrorist activity, in the way we are now used to; rather, it had its roots in lobbying...
