Orders of the Day — Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (6 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker, for allowing me to make my maiden speech in this debate. I am delighted to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford, North (Mr. Scott), with whom I share that pleasure, and I congratulate him on his speech. I will return to the subject matter of the debate, but I know that the House will indulge me if I start on a personal note. It is a huge privilege and...

Orders of the Day — Violent Crime Reduction Bill (20 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: The Home Secretary will agree that the measures in the Bill, worthy as they may be, will only work if they can be enforced. Will he look again at the crippling burden of paperwork on our police officers so that they can get on with enforcing these measures?

Orders of the Day — Violent Crime Reduction Bill (20 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with a great deal of what the hon. Member for Warrington, North (Helen Jones) said. I add my congratulations to Members who have made their maiden speeches today—my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr. Burrowes), with whom I share a profession in the criminal law, and the hon. Member for Stourbridge (Lynda Waltho), on behalf of whose constituents I have, sadly,...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Turkey (EU Accession) (21 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on progress towards Turkey's accession to the European Union.

Jury Trials (Fraud) (21 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Although I accept that the number of cases that the Solicitor-General is talking about in this context is very small, does he not accept that the difficulty with this proposal is that the arguments that he is deploying can be used to justify the removal of jury trial in a large number of other cases? Arguments of complexity and length apply to more than just serious fraud trials. That is the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Does the Prime Minister accept that busy village halls are often at the heart of thriving rural communities such as those that I represent in Rugby and Kenilworth? However, the huge increases proposed in the Licensing Act 2003—increases in paperwork and in the cost of entertainment licences, rising from £30 to more than £900—will put vital resources at risk. Will the Prime Minister do...

Written Answers — Deputy Prime Minister: Housing (27 Jun 2005)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what proportion of brownfield development in Kenilworth is development of land previously used for dwellings or their gardens.

Written Answers — Transport: Variable Vehicle Excise Rates (12 Sep 2005)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to develop and extend the scheme of variable vehicle excise rates for vehicles which have reduced environmental impact.

Orders of the Day — Civil Aviation Bill: New Clause 4 — Commercial Flights Officer (10 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: My constituents are affected by a much smaller airport than Heathrow, but I agree wholeheartedly with a great deal of what the hon. Gentleman has said. Is not one of the main reasons why neither his constituents nor mine trust the Government's proposed regime adequately to address their needs the fact that the Government are not really committed to reducing decibel levels to a point at which...

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Csa (12 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions when the Child Support Agency will submit its business transformation programme to the Department; and if he will place a copy of the report in the Library.

Emergency Services (Regionalisation) (12 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: My question may be hypothetical, but it is all too possible. A person who reports a fire in my area might not know the locality and so may not be able to describe the address. An operator in a regional fire control centre is far less likely to be able to fill in the gaps in that report than would be the case with a local fire control operator. Therefore, would not a regional fire control...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 1 - Drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend, but would he go further and say that unless drinking banning orders and any other legislation that the Government might impose are enforced, they will contribute to a further degrading of public confidence in our ability to enforce such laws, leading to a further lack of confidence in the idea that our streets will one day be safe again?

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 1 - Drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with a great deal of what has been said, but it seems—

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 1 - Drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Perhaps I can pick up that point directly. My submission is that—

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 1 - Drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: I am grateful for that guidance, Mr. Benton. Perhaps I can put things this way. I have no doubt that constituents will have expressed to every member of the Committee concerns about precisely the type of incidents that drinking banning orders are designed to address. However, I also have no doubt that such constituents, including those of the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hall Green, will be...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 1 - Drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Will the Minister give way?

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 10 - Breach of drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Does the Minister accept that for persistent breaches of a longer drinking banning order it might be sensible to allow the courts the option—it is no more than that under the clause—to impose a custodial sentence? Does not she accept that, if the order is to be taken seriously, repeated breach of it over a prolonged period should carry the possibility of custody?

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 10 - Breach of drinking banning orders (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: Assuming that the offender responds to community punishment properly but still continues to breach the drinking banning order, how will he be dissuaded from continuing the drinking behaviour that the order seeks to address?   Sitting suspended for a Division in the House. On resuming—

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 12 - Power to impose charges on (18 Oct 2005)

Jeremy Wright: If I understand correctly the amendments that my hon. Friend has tabled, he suggests that an alcohol disorder zone can be imposed on an area in its entirety, following a local authority's assessment that it presents a problem. However, the provision does not allow the local authority—or anyone else—to distinguish between the licensed premises that contribute to the problem and those that...
