Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 8 - Duty of person responsible for animal to ensure welfare (19 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: There is a difference between good practice and appropriateness. One implies a potentially separate body establishing what good practice is; the other implies some responsibility on the part of the individual to assess for themselves what is   appropriate. That is one of my concerns about the use of the term “good practice”. It should be partly down to the individual to assess...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 8 - Duty of person responsible for animal to ensure welfare (19 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: I am concerned that that seems entirely to contradict our previous discussion on good practice. The discussion seems to be validating exactly the position that many Members took which is that appropriateness would be far more flexible and give the Minister the flexibility that he says we require.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 9 - Transfer of animals by way of sale or prize to persons under 16 (19 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: I wish to add my support to these amendments, because I think that in the 21st century, it is time that we banned giving pets away as prizes. I am sure that, every year, many parents are greeted by the horrific scene of their children returning with friends from a fair with a pet fish. The parents then wonder how on earth they are meant to take care of it. It is an involuntary, unacceptable...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 9 - Transfer of animals by way of sale or prize to persons under 16 (19 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: The Minister makes a valuable point. The parents may be aware, but they may not expect to win. Parents who are pressured into participating by their small children may end up with a nasty shock when their ticket is drawn out of the bag.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 9 - Transfer of animals by way of sale or prize to persons under 16 (19 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: The hon. Gentleman raises a good point. The Bill focuses on prevention, which is why I am in favour of the amendments. The point is preventing animal welfare issues from arising in the first place. A pet as a prize is by definition an unexpected occurrence. Surely the risk that it carries of somebody who is ill prepared becoming an owner and of animal welfare suffering as a result is...

Written Answers — Transport: Night-flight Restrictions (20 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the total cost was of conducting the stage (a) one and (b) two consultation on night flight restrictions at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Health: NHS Turnaround Teams (20 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) how much her Department has spent to date on NHS turnaround teams in each NHS trust; and if she will make a statement; (2) how much money contained in the departmental budget reflected by the latest departmental winter supplementary estimate 2005–06 will be allocated for financial turnaround teams working with NHS trusts; and if she will make...

Written Answers — Home Department: Police (23 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the rollout of the remaining safer neighbourhood policing teams is planned to be fully completed in each ward of the London borough of Wandsworth; and if he will make a statement.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 13 - Making and approval of codes of practice: England (24 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: There is already the precedent of the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1968, in which codes of practice are subject to an affirmative resolution. Does the Minister agree that that approach would merely align the Bill with that earlier Act?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 16 - Powers in relation to animals in distress (24 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: Will the Minister also clarify the role of local authorities? Obviously, London is a very busy place, and if an animal were knocked over at the side of a red route, for example, an RSPCA officer might be required to come and collect it. I understand that at present the RSPCA must contribute to the congestion charge. Would the Mayor have some responsibility for the removal of the animal?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 28 - Imprisonment or fine (24 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: I support amendment No. 157. As I said on Second Reading, I am anxious that the amendment should be accepted. As my hon. Friend the Member for Leominster said, people convicted of dog-fighting offences were given a four-month sentence, which, arguably, was insufficient. Under the Bill, the maximum will be only 13 weeks, which is wholly inadequate. The Bill has   focused on animal welfare...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: Clause 28 - Imprisonment or fine (24 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: On that point, does my hon. Friend agree that it is important that we monitor how custody plus works in practice to ensure that when someone is out serving a community sentence, the sentence actually has some sort of impact on the person, and they are not just running around, free to do whatever they like?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare Bill: New Clause 4 - UK animal welfare enforcement database (26 Jan 2006)

Justine Greening: I must correct my hon. Friend: the Met is not flush with cash. In fact, Putney police station is open for just two hours a day because there is nobody to man the front desk.

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the manpower allocation of (a) police officers and (b) civilian police staff was in each London borough in each year since 2003–04; and if he will make a statement.

Question number missing in Hansard, possibly truncated question.

Written Answers — Home Department: Police (6 Feb 2006)
