Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Draft Investigatory Powers Bill (4 Nov 2015)

Nick Clegg: I thank the Home Secretary for her statement. Her last Bill on this fraught but important subject hit the buffers. The current Bill is a much improved model, although I have the feeling that, under the bonnet, it retains some of the flaws of its predecessor. The Home Office has clearly put in a lot of work, which I welcome, as I do the dropping of some of the key provisions on third-party...

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 Jun 2015)

Nick Clegg: I speak as someone who, as the Home Secretary knows, had a hand in the commissioning of this excellent report. The right hon. Lady will remember with fond, misty-eyed nostalgia the debates that she and I had on this complex, fraught and all-important area of public policy. One of the consequences of those debates and disagreements was that a number of reports were commissioned, including...

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 Jun 2015)

Nick Clegg: I thank my right hon. Friend for that intervention, which I will come to in a moment, because David Anderson has made some specific recommendations on how we compare with other jurisdictions. David Anderson has managed to do something that I certainly did not manage to do in government: to get the Home Office to define the somewhat nebulous term of weblogs. Weblogs, according to his report,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Tributes to Charles Kennedy (3 Jun 2015)

Nick Clegg: A few days ago I got in touch with Charles because I was looking for a telephone number of someone we both knew. His friends will not be surprised to learn that we were texting each other. He was notoriously bad at actually answering his phone, but famously fluent in SMS. He said he did not have the number on him but he would get back to me this week, because he was spending time with his...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015)

Nick Clegg: I add my warmest congratulations to the right hon. Member for Chelmsford (Mr Burns) and the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on their excellent speeches as proposer and seconder of the Queen’s Speech. Their speeches were by turn witty, warm hearted and, certainly in the case of the right hon. Gentleman, quite surprising in places. I add my tribute and that of my party to...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015)

Nick Clegg: Where free speech is exploited to incite hatred and violence, of course the law must be applied and people must be prosecuted, and prosecuted hard. The problem with starting on this slippery slope always arises when we start defining what kind of speech we do and do not like, or what we do and do not find offensive. The very definition—the heart—of a free, liberal society is that we...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015)

Nick Clegg: I will make some progress, because I have only 12 minutes. We will stand up for the poorest and most vulnerable, and we will always defend a Britain that is at its best when it is open-hearted, open-minded and outward-looking. Of course, it would be churlish of me not to welcome those measures that build on the work that the coalition Government did. The expansion of childcare was of course a...

Written Ministerial Statements — Deputy Prime Minister: Commencement of Succession to the Crown Act 2013 (26 Mar 2015)

Nick Clegg: Today the provisions of the Succession to the Crown Act 2013 come into force.

The Act also ends another long-standing piece of discrimination, the bar on anyone who marries a Roman Catholic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Northern Futures Project (24 Mar 2015)

Nick Clegg: Before I turn to my answer, I am sure that I speak on behalf of the whole House in saying how shocked I am to have heard about the very serious air accident that appears to have happened in the Alps in the last couple of hours, with the reported very large loss of life. I am sure that the thoughts and prayers of everybody in all parts of the House are with the families and friends of those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Northern Futures Project (24 Mar 2015)

Nick Clegg: Yes, I strongly agree with my hon. Friend. After such a long period of over-centralisation of decision making in Whitehall, the fact that this coalition Government have finally been able to set Greater Manchester, Cheadle and other parts of the country free from excessive Whitehall control is a great achievement that has been accompanied by a rebalancing of the economy. Sixty per cent. of the...
