Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: The Minister is arguing that young people who end up in custody are often repeat offenders whose behaviour other systems have failed to address. However, 84 per cent. of young offenders who go to prison reoffend within two years. They are being sent into a system that is almost guaranteed to fail them as well.

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: The Minister has mentioned in relation to two of the concerns that he has outlined that there will be reports. Will he reassure the House that those reports will be published in full, with all relevant details? One reason for the demand for a public inquiry is the concern that somehow the system will sweep this matter under the carpet. It would go some way towards meeting people's concerns if...

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: The hon. Member for Lancaster and Wyre (Mr. Dawson) made a powerful and passionate speech, which comes as no surprise to those of us who are aware of his role as one of the few champions in the House of young people. It is a great shame that he has decided to stand down, because that will mean that there is one less of us who think that young people receive far too negative a press. There are...

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the situation is often worse than that? When children leave jail after serving a short sentence, their status is often raised among their peers. Naming and shaming young people in the newspapers gives them status among other young people and raises the possibility of their behaviour being copied by other youngsters.

Local Government Finance (2 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: There is plenty of evidence about our policy, if the hon. Gentleman wants to read it. All the bodies to which he referred levy council tax already, and they could therefore also levy a local income tax. That is what happens in America, most of Europe and most industrial countries around the world. The Liberal Democrats did not invent local income tax. Many countries around the world use it...

Local Government Finance (2 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Local Government Finance (2 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: Will the hon. Gentleman confirm that it is Conservative party policy to retain the council tax system?

Standards Board (1 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: I congratulate the hon. Member for The Wrekin (Peter Bradley), one of my near neighbours in constituency terms, on securing the debate and on his excellent speech. He made good recommendations about changes that should be made to the Standards Board and, more importantly, to the code of conduct that it is working towards. We also heard excellent speeches from the hon. Members for Regent's...

Standards Board (1 Feb 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. The case that he cites is well known in the area; it slightly pre-dates the Standards Board. There were some tit-for-tat allegations that beset Bridgnorth council for several years, but they were dealt with effectively because they were dealt with locally. The allegations stopped immediately when one councillor, who I will not name, retired from the council....

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 88 - General functions of the commission (27 Jan 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: I shall briefly speak to the clause, as the hon. Lady would not take an intervention. I struggle to see the difficulty with two bodies, coming from different areas, giving different advice. It is advice; it is not binding. When planning applications are submitted, many people give advice. Even MPs might sometimes say, ''Oh, that's a good scheme; the planning committee should vote for it.'' I...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 97 - Use of fixed penalty receipts:lower tier authorities (27 Jan 2005)

Mr Matthew Green: I have a couple of brief questions for the Minister. Clause 97(2)(b), says that regulations may include provision ''to pay sums in respect of those amounts to another person (including the appropriate person)'', and the appropriate person would obviously be the Secretary of State or the Welsh Assembly. However, what is the real intention of the paragraph? Is it that the Minister will ensure...
