Public Bill Committee: : Clause 15 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The hon. Gentleman refers to my comments as opinions. In one instance, I might agree. However, I also cited research. The research by Melissa Farley to which I referred draws attention to the New Zealand prostitution review committee, which stated that street prostitution in Auckland more than doubled in just one year, 2006-07. That is not opinion; it is fact.

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 13 (10 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The overwhelming evidence that we have heard supports what the hon. Gentleman is saying, but a lot of evidence did not come forward at the time. I am sure that we have all received the same briefing from CARE—Christian Action Research and Education—and Beyond the Streets, a collaborative network that covers 50 grassroots organisations and outreach projects. What it says is the...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Clause 13 (5 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The hon. Gentleman talked about fathers, but I understand that some mothers do the same. I think that Coleen Nolan, from the Nolan Sisters, paid for her son, or said that it would be a good 18th birthday present for him. Might the extension not be “and/or consumes” the service? Surely, that would be a way round the problem.

Public Bill Committee: : New Clause 4 (3 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Following on from that point and to some extent a discussion this morning, will my hon. Friend describe, so that I can tell my constituents, what it would be like to have a BNP chief constable, lay commissioner, or whatever? We should bear in mind that Nick Griffin said on “Newsnight” recently: “You can’t possibly separate the hard drugs trade from the question of Islam...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 1 (3 Feb 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The lobbies that I got from the west midlands were about the single person—the commissioner and that focus. I do not know sufficient about Chesterfield or Bury St. Edmonds to know about the local political set-up there; but in the west midlands, we have a significant problem with the British National party. The hon. Member for Bury St. Edmunds was talking about democracy, but I feel that...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Thank you, Sir Nicholas. I am sorry that I did not catch your eye before. I was waving and smiling sweetly, but you did not quite get it.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: This is going to hang in the air a bit, because we have moved on, but following Julie’s point about “controlled for gain”, and your offer, Mr. Lodder, to find another phrase, I have to ask whether we actually need one phrase. All we need do is define “controlled” and separate it from “assist” or “organise”. The English Collective of Prostitutes...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: But we want the pimps do we not? They are the people we want.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: So, can we not separate them as the controllers?

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: But my point is that we could define “controlled”. Would not that help us to solve this problem? We do not need another phrase that will confuse people.

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: On alcohol concerns, and the point you have made, Anita, I took evidence yesterday as chair of the all-party group on alcohol misuse, and I think that if anyone found a young person aged between 10 and 15 drunk three times in a year, it would be quite significant. When you think about the release of figures today in the new Government document, it is quite significant. If young people are...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: My question concerns collaboration. What has the reaction of the police been to the proposed measures? What reaction have local authorities and the crime partnerships had over how their role will change and how important they will still be?

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Thank you, Sir Nicholas. Strictly speaking, I think it should be Alan Campbell who responds, although I think that Vernon Coaker has been around the world to view different systems, so it is up to them to decide. The lady who gave evidence for the English Collective of Prostitutes suggested that we ought to look at complete decriminalisation, which is the experience in New Zealand. I have...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Most of the matters that I am concerned about have been covered, except for one, which is the need for a central register of licensees, which I brought up in my speech originally. It is entirely possible and highly likely that licensees who lose their licence in one authority will just pop up in another, and that there will be no co-ordination.

Oral Answers to Questions — Innovation, Universities and Skills: Motor Industry (29 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I agree with my right hon. Friend that to abolish Train to Gain at this point would be absolute madness, and the principal of Stourbridge college—I was speaking to him this morning—agrees. My right hon. Friend has been to Stourbridge and seen the fantastically successful Train to Gain programme there. People are pleased that the programme has been relaxed to include redundant workers....

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Topical Questions (26 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: The project to transform special needs education in my constituency, the Thorns learning village, has been delayed owing to the bizarre decision of Dudley council not to apply for Building Schools for the Future money. Also, it has been reported that the council will not apply for money for free school dinners. What advice will my right hon. Friend give to my constituents, who are amazed by...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: Tuesday 27 January is Holocaust memorial day, and events will be taking place across the country. What will my right hon. Friend be doing to mark and to commemorate the occasion? Will he join me in commending the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust, which does so much to educate and inform our young people about the horrors of the holocaust?

Olympics: Policing and Crime Bill (19 Jan 2009)

Lynda Waltho: I welcome the Bill, particularly the measures that relate to the licensing of lap dancing and those that tackle alcohol-fuelled crime. I have been working on the issue of licensing lap-dancing clubs over the past two and a half years or so. Constituents first contacted me when the Picture House nightclub in my constituency applied to be a lap-dancing club. It would have been the second...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Oct 2008)

Lynda Waltho: Men and women alike are concerned about the economy, the future and the welfare of their families. Will my right hon. Friend, whatever the situation, promise the women of this country that he will not stoop so low as to hire a public relations firm to get inside our pretty little heads?

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Strip Clubs (6 Oct 2008)

Lynda Waltho: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether the Licensing Act 2003 has been subject to a gender impact assessment, with particular reference to the licensing of lap dancing clubs.
