Criminal Evidence Bell: Clause 1 (9 Mar 1979)

Mr Peter Crowder: This is a short Bill, relating to criminal evidence. It has been through all its stages in another place. It concerns a technical point, and I have no doubt that the Bill has been examined with some care. In effect, the change that it makes was originally recommended by the Criminal Law Reform Committee in its eleventh report, which was published as long ago as 1972, which recommended that...

Hillingdon Law Centre (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Peter Crowder: Nearly 500 years ago a statute was enacted in the reign of Henry VII which provided that Every poor person … shall have … writs … therefore paying nothing to your Highness … and the Lord Chancellor shall assign … learned counsel and attorneys for the same without any reward taking thereof". It was from that statute that the modem community law centres first came into being. The...

Hillingdon Law Centre (14 Feb 1979)

Mr Peter Crowder: I am glad I gave way to the hon. Gentleman. I have been speaking only this evening to the leader of the council. That is far from being its attitude. The council is anxious that this law centre should work on the basis of the guidelines set out by the Lord Chancellor and should be completely nonpolitical. At the last meeting, the management committee adopted an uncompromising attitude and...

Picketing (25 Jan 1979)

Mr Peter Crowder: Will the Attorney-General explain what he means when he says that intimidation as such can possibly be lawful? It amounts almost to blackmail, does it not?

Orders of the Day — Sheriff Peter Thomson (6 Dec 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is becoming clear to me as a recorder that I am not entitled to vote in this matter. Is that so?

Orders of the Day — Sheriff Peter Thomson (6 Dec 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I am grateful, Mr. Deputy Speaker. In that event, I wish you goodnight.

New Clause 4: Prison Sentence Partly Served and Partly Suspended (13 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I entirely agree with what the hon. and learned Gentleman has just said. Does this state of affairs he has described not fall in with the principle which we have seen over the years in which a judge, knowing that if a man behaves himself he will get one-third remission and wanting him to serve 12 months, gives him 18 months? That has happened time and again.

New Clause 5: Right to Have Someone Informed When Arrested (13 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: While I agree in many respect with what the hon. Gentleman has said, does he not think that there is a certain danger in allowing a person in police custody to contact someone of his own choosing? Let us take the instance of a big fraud or a conspiracy and let us suppose that the person of his own choosing is on the fringe of the conspiracy. If the person in custody is given the right to...

New Clause 5: Right to Have Someone Informed When Arrested (13 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I, too, wholeheartedly support the spirit behind the clause. Some hon. Members have given support to this provision and have mentioned isolated cases, but isolated cases do not make good law. I should like to mention one matter relating to the wording of the clause. I refer to the phrase he shall be entitled to have intimation of his arrest". I do not think that the word "entitled" is...

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Would you reconsider your decision in view of what has been said? After all, these men are serving the country in extremely difficult circumstances. The separation from their families and such minor remuneration as they receive is part and parcel of their lives. Must that not affect this debate on discipline? I say this with great respect. There have...

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is a long time since I was in the Army, but my recollection is that stoppages of pay are regarded as a matter of discipline and on that basis my hon. Friend the Member for Stretford (Mr. Churchill) may be in order. I ask you to reconsider the situation.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am sorry to interrupt again, but I have looked at the Army Act 1955 rather carefully, and if you will look at Section 151 you will find that it might be of interest to the House. I have no doubt that you have it before you.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: The order refers to the Army Act 1955. I have discovered what the "b" in brackets means. It relates to Chapter 18, Section 151—"Deductions from pay for maintenance of wife or child". I do not know, Mr. Deputy Speaker, whether you have had the opportunity of seeing it. It seems to me of great importance.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Precedent is always of interest and importance in these matters, but, of course, the discretion remains, as it always does, with the Chair. When one consults precedents, one should also consult the relevant section of the Act. To my mind, Section 151 of the Army Act 1955 is something that should be brought to your attention immediately.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I am obliged, Mr. Deputy Speaker.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: And Northwood. Northwood would never forgive the hon. Gentleman.

Clause 1: Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (5 Jul 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I suggest, with great respect, that if the hon. Gentleman had been sitting in the Appeal Division of the Court of Criminal Appeal he would probably have come to the same decision—

Business of the House (26 May 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: Will the right hon. Genteman consider allowing the House to debate at an early date the situation affecting the police and their pay? I believe that the Leader of the House has a vast knowledge of the law, through his distinguished brother, who is one of Her Majesty's counsel.

Orders of the Day — Northwood, Pinner and District Hospital (20 Jan 1977)

Mr Peter Crowder: I am glad to have the opportunity to raise the subject of the future of the Northwood, Pinner and District Hospital. I shall endeavour to do so in a short time and at a speed with which the shorthand writers can cope—in contrast to the previous two speeches which, although excellent, were like turning on both bath taps at the same time—though I appreciate the problems facing both hon....

Orders of the Day — Health Services Bill: Functions of Board as Regards Withdrawal of NHS Facilities from Private Patients (19 Nov 1976)

Mr Peter Crowder: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. For the purpose of the record, there are no Labour Members present, apart from the Parliamentary Private Secretary, the Minister and his assistant—
