Electric Scooters - Question (29 Oct 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, I cut my teeth dealing with people cycling on footpaths many years ago—perhaps I had more time than most people have now. The Minister mentioned that such use of these scooters was an offence. Does that attract a fixed penalty rather than the full rigour of the law, because that makes it a lot easier for the police to enforce the law?

Essex: Major Incident - Statement (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, I welcome the Minister’s mention of the co-operation agreement that has been signed; this is obviously very helpful. I also associate myself with the comments of the noble Lord, Lord Hannay; the European Union connections are clearly very important and I hope that we can replicate them. In the light of the evidence that has been accumulated so far, does the Minister think that the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (Continued) (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, it is a great honour to follow the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, in bringing to an end this comprehensive debate. It will not surprise your Lordships that my brief contribution to the debate on the Address and the gracious Speech is in relation to home affairs—in particular, policing. The House will be aware that when an arrest is made by a police officer for an offence, an...

Public Spaces Protection Orders - Question (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, anti-social behaviour has taken many forms over the years. In my experience, dealing with it can also take several forms. One of the easiest is to have sufficient police officers on the street to nip it in the bud as it occurs. That always proved valuable in my time. The problem at present is that we do not have the front- line officers with time to deal with it courteously and...

Restaurants: Calorie Labelling - Question (9 Jul 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, parents carry some responsibility. What disturbs me—I would like to know whether the Minister agrees—is that I often see parents with young children who have a scooter. The child will stand on the scooter and the parent pushes the child all the way to school, so the child gets no exercise whatever. It seems to defeat the whole purpose. Are the Government doing anything to remedy...

Metal Theft - Question (26 Jun 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: Bearing in mind that the theft of metal from railways, as referred to in the Question, can be very serious, is the Minister satisfied that co-operation between the British Transport Police and the local police forces which would probably check the scrapyards is as good and effective as it might be? I do not know whether it already does so, but is there a case for allowing the British...

Brexit: Border Controls - Question (19 Jun 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, tackling the smuggling of firearms and drugs clearly requires our services, whether the Border Force or the police, to co-operate with our European partners. Does the Minister think that this will be helped if we crash out of Europe without a deal?

Justice: Private Sector - Question (18 Jun 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, does the noble and learned Lord agree that, in state activity that involves the detention of citizens, such as prisons, policing and some mental institutions, public service should trump private profit?

NHS: Bullying - Question (5 Jun 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, I am sure noble Lords will recall my maiden speech 21 years ago, when I spoke about bullying in schools. One of the points that I made then, and I shall make again now, is that an answer to this problem is an independent hotline which people can ring to report misconduct of all kinds, not just bullying, so that organisations do not seek retribution for those who report misconduct.

Family Courts: Domestic Violence - Question (21 May 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, given that a very large number of homicides start with domestic violence, does the Minister agree that the criminal justice community should treat the early indicators, such as stalking activities, far more seriously?

Stalking - Question (14 May 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, does the Minister agree that stalking can be an obsessive crime and is quite often related to mental illness? Of course, it can lead to murder. I dealt with a case recently where the accused was a foreign national. Importantly, he was convicted of the crime and eventually deported. The police need to take the issue seriously and senior officers need to supervise those on the front...

Identity Cards - Question (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the pass I am wearing is a very useful identity card in a sense but that we rely more on the skills of the doorkeepers and the people who know us, rather than this identity card? Would it not be better to have a card that identified the holder with the card? It would then be a biometric identity card and would clearly identify, at a minute’s notice,...

Police: Recruitment Criteria - Question (2 Apr 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the entry criteria for joining police forces in England and Wales; and what plans, if any, they have to reform such criteria.

Police: Recruitment Criteria - Question (2 Apr 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: I thank the Minister for her reply. Is she aware of the four pilot schemes—taking place, I believe, at the instigation of the College of Policing—in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and south Wales, which require all recruits to undertake a three-year apprenticeship leading to a university degree? My information is that this training would incur an additional cost of £24,000...

Deportation: Jamaica - Private Notice Question (6 Feb 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, just for clarification, will the Minister explain that, when a foreign national is convicted of a criminal offence and receives a sentence of, I think, more than two years, they then qualify for deportation? It is probably a matter for the judge to make a recommendation and then the Home Office takes over to see whether there are any mitigating circumstances. Is that correct?

Fly-tipping - Question (31 Jan 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, given that a lot of fly-tipping takes place on private land—serious fly-tipping, at that—does the Minister agree that it would be useful to use more technologies such as discreet cameras with number plate recognition systems? Would he encourage the police to co-operate with landowners in this regard, and make it clear that when these people are detected the penalty deters them...

Shop Workers: Protection - Question (23 Jan 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, I recall the outcry from certain parts of the community about the attack on civil liberties when street cameras were introduced a few years ago. Does this Question not prove the value of using modern technology in the prevention and detection of crime?

Homophobic Hate Crime - Question (22 Jan 2019)

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, do the Government have any plans to extend the criminal law to cover people with disabilities, particularly online?
