European Union (Amendment) Bill (29 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: I am most grateful to all noble Lords who have contributed to this remarkable debate on the charter. I think all noble Lords will agree it has been greatly enriched by the contribution of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Slynn, who sat for many years as a judge in the court and who brings that unique experience to our deliberations. I was asked a question by the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: moved, as an amendment to Amendment No. 1, Amendment No. 2: After Clause 11, line 11, leave out "156(3)(a)" and insert "156(3)"

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for his opening remarks. He will recall that, in Committee, widespread concern was expressed by many noble Lords about the absence of an obligation on a court to require a written report before a custodial sentence was passed. I would like to think that it was that strength of opinion that has led the Government to come forward with the amendment...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, as I think I said earlier, I am most grateful to the Government for bringing forward the amendment. The noble Lord, Lord Bach, has clarified a somewhat occluded part of its wording in a way that I find entirely satisfactory. I am disappointed that the Government are not minded to accept my amendment. I think that in some respects, where a community order is under consideration, the...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: moved Amendment No. 5: Clause 28, page 20, line 9, at end insert "subject to the agreement of a Crown Court judge"

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 6 to 10. Amendments Nos. 5 to 9 refer to what is now Clause 28, which must be one of the most opaque clauses in the Bill and, when the Bill becomes law, it will become one the most opaque sections on the statute book. It deals with three distinct classes of offenders. The first group concerns offenders serving a determinate sentence for offences...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, first, I am most grateful to the Minister for acceding to Amendments Nos. 6 and 9. No doubt there will be certain changes in the drafting by the Government in order to stamp their own inimitable character on these provisions.

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, it will come as no surprise to the Minister to learn that I am disappointed by his reaction to our other amendments. He underlined the importance of speed and effectiveness in the recall process in relation both to those categories in Clause 28 to which I referred and to the life sentence category in Clause 30. I understand that those are important considerations. On the other hand,...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Lord Kingsland: moved Amendment No. 6: Clause 28, page 20, leave out lines 42 and 43 On Question, amendment agreed to. [Amendments Nos. 7 and 8 not moved.]

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (30 Apr 2008)

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: rose to move Motion A1, as an amendment to Motion A, to leave out from "House" to end and insert "do insist on its Amendments Nos. 9, 301 and 327.

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, Clause 10 amends Section 189 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003. It removes the recently granted power to magistrates to make suspended sentence orders in summary cases. As many of your Lordships will be aware, this matter was debated at length both in Committee and on Report and I have no intention whatever of rehearsing in any detail the arguments that were advanced. For those of...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for giving me the formal date but I am reliably informed that the practice was not in operation until the end of 2005; otherwise, why would the Minister place such emphasis on the comparative statistics between 2005 and 2006? The comparative statistics that he advanced would be absolutely valueless if the suspended sentence power was fully in...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken in this relatively crisp debate this afternoon. The noble Lord, Lord Elystan-Morgan, made an alternative suggestion to that advanced in the amendment which has arrived from another place—relating to the commencement clause, Clause 201. That clause is not before your Lordships' House this afternoon; the noble Lord first made his...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, that is so; but I did not understand the noble Lord, Lord Elystan-Morgan, to be suggesting that Clause 201(6) without any amendment could conceivably be an answer to the criticisms that have been made from these Benches and by other noble Lords about the Government's position. Simply to hand over complete discretion to the Secretary of State to decide when to introduce Clause 10...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, this amendment, which the Government have brought back to your Lordships' House, is a consequence of an undertaking that they gave at Third Reading in your Lordships' House. The Government have met that in full and we are, correspondingly, extremely grateful.

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: rose to move Motion C1, as an amendment to Motion C, at end insert "but do propose Amendments Nos. 86B and 86C to Commons Amendment No. 86A.

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, as the noble Baroness has indicated, there are two issues involved in Motion C. The first one concerns the class of case in which unqualified employees of the CPS can engage in magistrates' courts proceedings, and the second concerns the legal framework within which they operate when they are litigating in magistrates' courts. On the first issue, our view has consistently been that...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (7 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford, for what he said, which seems entirely in accord with our own view. In those circumstances, I beg leave to withdraw the Motion.

European Union (Amendment) Bill (12 May 2008)

Lord Kingsland: moved Amendment No. 53: Clause 2, page 1, line 12, after "excluding" insert— "(i) Article 2, paragraph 66, replacement Article 65 TEC (TFEU), paragraphs 1 and 2, relating to judicial cooperation in civil matters; and(ii) "
