Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I support what my noble friend Lady Anelay has said. This is yet another example of the point that I have made. I am not complaining at all; indeed, as the Minister knows, I welcome Part 1, which deals with domestic violence. But the scope is becoming so wide that, when one is suddenly asked, "Are you going to go on sample cases because of Kidd?", one must say to the judge,...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, among the amendments to which the Minister referred was one which amends, yet again, the Long Title of the Bill. The Bill is now so wide, would it not be better to drop the words "Domestic Violence" from the Title and call it a criminal justice Bill—because that is what it has become?

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I am not disputing that. I support it covering the principles of domestic violence. I am making the point that it covers many different things. The whole of the Attorney-General's speech in reply to the previous debate quite rightly referred to what would happen in fraud cases; we have made common assault an arrestable offence. We are extending the Bill in so many ways that it goes...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I am grateful to the Attorney-General because what he has said is helpful. He made it clear that one would not expect the judge to use the power he undoubtedly has—since he made the decision prior to the hearing—to try the other cases without a jury unless it is clear on the convictions of the jury as a whole that they have accepted that there was a series of offences rather...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, in speaking in support of the amendments I risk the direct and simple criticism that I am raising a matter which should have been raised in Grand Committee at this stage of the Bill. But it has just occurred to me and I ask the Attorney-General—who I think is to reply to the debate—to forgive me for doing so. As I understand it, the decision to divide is to be taken at a...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I support Amendment No. 41B, moved by my noble friend. I apologise for the fact that I was not here at the end of the debate on the matter earlier this week. The noble and learned Lord the Attorney-General probably dealt on that occasion with the point that I am going to make. In Committee, I made the point that, if courts are to have the power to make a non-molestation order...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (9 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, in fact the ingredient of the offence under Clause 4, which every one agrees should be part of the Bill, is the responsibility or the child's death either by causing the murder or on the terms set out. What the Minister is really saying is that, while we can prove that, if the person is charged only with murder he goes completely free although he would have been responsible for an...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (9 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, we had a long debate on this matter in Grand Committee. I have done my best to read what was then said, in particular what the Minister said in reply. I realise the difficulty that exists. If one chooses to try murder, together with an offence under Clause 4, it is arguable that Clause 5 is inevitably required, as the Minister has argued. However, as the noble and learned Lord, Lord...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (9 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I rise briefly to support my noble friend Lady Anelay in her Amendment No. 10. It seems to me that adding after "offence" the words, "of being responsible for the death of a child or vulnerable adult" does not in any way alter the intention of the clause but clarifies it, as the noble and learned Lord, Lord Donaldson said. If one were to read it at present, one would read the words...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (8 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I was not able to be in the House on 12 February this year and therefore I did not take part in that debate. However, I can assure the House that nevertheless I will abide by the Chief Whip's request to be brief, not so much because I did not speak in that debate but for the very good reason that practically everything I wanted to be said has already been said and presumably will...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (8 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, understandably, one often hears the argument that there are fewer female justices than there are male justices in the High Court, the Court of Appeal and, indeed, in the House of Lords. But surely the noble Lord must remember that when he started in practice, and when I came to the Bar, there were no women coming into either profession. While his argument would stand good if in 10...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, at an earlier stage of the Bill, the noble Lord, Lord McNally, referred to me as "that wise old owl". All I can say is that I hope that I am wise enough not to get involved in any argument with the noble Lord, Lord Renton, about drafting. I do not propose to do so, but I want to ask one question on a point that he made. What does the last line of subsection (5) mean? As I understand...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, in Committee, I briefly supported the noble Lord, Lord Thomas, in his wider amendment, as it then was, which would have retained a breach of a non-molestation order as a civil, rather than a criminal, offence. I still believe that his original proposal was right. The compromise that he now proposes meets at least one of the objections to turning it into a crime. I pointed out in...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I strongly support my noble friend Lady Anelay in Amendment No. 1. Clearly, as the amendment says, it is right that none of the Act's provisions should come into force until the necessary resources have been made available to implement them. In those circumstances it is right that, as the amendment asks, they should not come into force until the Lord Chancellor—provided that we...

Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I hope that I may interrupt the Minister's speech to say that of course I accept that the scope of what was at one time intended to be consulted on has been reduced substantially. However, I think that the Minister would agree, for example, that injuries incurred in the course of work constitute a major and important part of the scheme.

Horserace Betting and Olympic Lottery Bill (2 Mar 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, I say to my noble friend that the Bill belonged to the Home Secretary although I had the responsibility of taking it through Parliament. We had to pass it because at that stage the Tote was in financial difficulties. I hope that nothing in this Bill is going to damage the financial future of the Tote as an important part of the racing scene.

EU Enlargement: Free Movement of Workers (23 Feb 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, will the Minister now answer—

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 (4 Feb 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, does the Minister acknowledge that there is no purpose in having a debate unless the Government have proposals? Is she seriously telling the House that the Government propose that the standard of proof for achieving a finding of guilt in the criminal courts is to be lower for terrorist offences than for any other type of offence? That is an extraordinary situation.

Cannabis and Mental Health (14 Jan 2004)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, does the Minister accept that choosing to reclassify cannabis at this time will inevitably send out a message that its use is harmless? Does she accept, as a former practising barrister, that many of the people addicted to hard drugs who are involved in serious cases started by using cannabis before moving to harder drugs?

Yarl's Wood Detention Centre (11 Dec 2003)

Lord Carlisle of Bucklow: My Lords, have the Government come to a final decision about the future of the Chief Inspector of Prisons?
