"Surcharges (2 Nov 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, does the Minister accept that, as I understand it, the delay in dealing with cases is getting longer than it was because of not having enough money to pay out for those cases?

"Surcharges (2 Nov 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, may I inquire whether this is the new clause that deals with surcharges? The two new clauses after it raise the same principle with regard to fixed penalty offences. Does the Minister propose to deal with the issue of Amendments Nos. 8, 9 and 10 together; namely, the imposition of a surcharge both in conviction cases and as regards fixed penalties? Does that mean that we can speak...

"Surcharges (2 Nov 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I find this very strange. Like other noble Lords, I took part in the Committee stage of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill, which was looked at line by line, as happens in Committee. Then, suddenly, without any reference at all, the Government in the House of Commons start adding clauses which had never been mentioned, have never been considered by noble Lords and have no...

"Surcharges (2 Nov 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, how is a person mugged in the street the victim of a motorist speeding in another part of the country rather than the victim of the person who committed the mugging, or the victim of the society which failed to protect him from attack?

"Surcharges (2 Nov 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I was not for a moment suggesting that there are no victims of road accidents; of course there are. However, what I sought to ask is why is someone mugged in Edinburgh more the victim of someone speeding in Scarborough than the victim of society as a whole, which should protect him?

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: Before the Minister sits down, will she tell the Committee of any advantage that she sees in having a Supreme Court in place of the present Judicial Committee that justifies the increase in fees?

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: I was not questioning the Minister's remarks that there would be additional costs and that if we have a Supreme Court, additional costs will certainly be necessary in the way that she said. I was inquiring about the advantage of having the change at all.

Constitutional Reform Bill (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: I must confess that the other day I was slightly surprised to learn from someone that it was suggested that he was unsuitable to be considered for judicial rank as he had been disqualified from driving because of three convictions for speeding. Although I fully accept the words "good character", I hope that the Minister will agree that one has to use them sensibly and recognise that there is...

Constitutional Reform Bill (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: I realise that the time is late. If I had any doubt, the brief appearance of a scowling Chief Whip on the government side would have made that point to me. But this is an enormously important amendment. I should make it clear that I support the appointment of an appointments commission. If I might say so to the Minister, the Government have probably got its membership about right in that...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: It seems to me that these amendments apply not only to Scotland but also to the whole of the United Kingdom. If so, they raise again the point made by the noble Viscount, Lord Bledisloe, in an earlier debate. As was said at that stage, when the Minister said that it was unnecessary to put in the word "premises", as a requirement on the Minister to provide appropriate premises as well as...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (18 Oct 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: Perhaps I may ask a question on the point raised by my noble friend Lord Windlesham. Is it the intention of the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor to make a Statement about the future premises for any Supreme Court, if one were to be decided upon, before Report? The noble Baroness will remember that those members of the Judicial Committee who say they support the change to a Supreme...

Supreme Court and Lords of Appeal (9 Jun 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, in view of the welcome given by the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor to the work of the Select Committee, would he care to remind noble Lords whether he advised the House to vote for the setting up of the Select Committee or whether he advised against the setting up of the Select Committee?

London Probation Area: Service Delivery (20 May 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, is it a fact, as the noble Baroness, Lady Stern, suggested, that courts are not receiving pre-sentence reports? If so, what is being done about it?

Iraq: Treatment of Prisoners (4 May 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, returning to the question asked by my noble friend Lady Trumpington, I wish to ask the Minister three questions which I think that he can answer without prejudicing the outcome of this inquiry. First, in view of the obvious sensitivity of the photographs, what information, if any, was given by the Daily Mirror to the Government of its intention to publish the photographs beforehand?...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (25 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I support as strongly as possible every word that the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford, said on the issue. We have debated the clause at considerable length in Committee, on Report and now again at Third Reading. I have done my best to read and understand the arguments put forward by the Minister, but I cannot see her answer to the statement that the clause allows a person to be...

Yarl's Wood (24 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, the Minister said that the report of the Prisons Ombudsman had been in the hands of Ministers for some weeks. Why is he unable to say when it will be published?

Probation Service: Regional Offender Managers (18 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, does the Minister agree that a well motivated and properly organised staff running a properly funded system of community sentences available to the courts is far more likely to reduce the level of reoffending among young offenders than short terms of imprisonment? If she agrees, is that a message that she would care to pass on to the Home Secretary and make it clear that the...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (15 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former chairman of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board. Can I take it from the Minister's answer that there is no intention of changing the current means by which the board is funded?

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (15 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: As we are setting up a statutory victims body, is there any intention to change the way in which the board is funded?

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (15 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, that may be the answer to the question I was going to ask. If we are setting up a statutory panel, surely we should at least know what its intended size is and, as the noble Lord, Lord Borrie, said, the type of person likely to be on it. If it is a fact that the first panel is to be formed by turning what is, at the moment, merely an advisory panel into a statutory panel,...
