Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 57 - Changes to powers to make suspended sentence order (15 Sep 2011)

Anna Soubry: It is effectively a sword of Damocles. The defendants know that should they breach that period of suspension, the full two years will come down upon them and that they will go away—[ Interruption. ]

Written Answers — Home Department: Criminal Records (10 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent progress the Independent Advisory Panel for the Disclosure of Criminal Records has made in its work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (10 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: Members of the armed forces often have to move very quickly and with short notice, which can affect the education of their children, particular if it happens when school has already started. Will the Minister therefore congratulate the George Spencer academy in my constituency, which intends to change its policy so that priority is given to such children, especially those moving to the...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishmentof Offenders bill: Schedule 10 - Amendment of enactments relating to bail (11 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: Does the right hon. Gentleman share my concern that when analysing the figures it is important to remember that some defendants may receive a non-custodial sentence because they have spent a period on remand and there may have been changes in their circumstances, notably becoming free of drugs? Does he agree that there is evidence that a sentencing judge may decide that because of advances...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishmentof Offenders bill: Schedule 10 - Amendment of enactments relating to bail (11 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: Can the hon. Lady help us with this: had any evidence been placed before the Crown court judge as to the risk that this particular man posed, and was the judge in full receipt of all the information that would have led him or her to come to what would have been the right decision?

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 98 - Miscellaneous amendments relating to release and recall (11 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: Could the hon. Lady help me in this respect: is she saying that for the last 13 or 14 years women were being effectively turfed out, destitute, from custody with their babies? If that was the case for the last 13 or 14 years, could she enlighten us as to what the last Government did about that, and, if they did nothing, why?

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 98 - Miscellaneous amendments relating to release and recall (11 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: I would like to know the evidence to be placed before this Committee for the number of women being discharged from mother and baby units who are, to use the hon. Lady’s word, “destitute”. Where is the evidence?

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 113 - Offences of threatening with article with blade or point or offensive weapon in public or on school premises (13 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: On what basis does the hon. Lady say that it is soft to say that people who carry knives in the manner described by the Justice Secretary should expect to go to prison for a considerable length of time? Will she remind us again about the manifesto commitment that people who carry knives could “expect” to face a prison sentence, which implies a non-mandatory sentence and that seems...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 113 - Offences of threatening with article with blade or point or offensive weapon in public or on school premises (13 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: The Criminal Justice Act 2003 made the possession of a firearm an offence attracting a mandatory five-year sentence. In doing so, the Act sent out a powerful message, which many people, especially those at the sharp end of the criminal justice system, believe had a profound effect on the carrying of firearms and, in cities such as Nottingham, led to a steep reduction in the use and possession...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: New Clause 15 - Causing serious injury by dangerous driving (13 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull East. I add my congratulations on his successful campaign and reiterate his generous comments about other campaigners, notably the victims’ families. I support much of what he says and suggest a way forward: instead of creating a new offence, the mischief we all seek to cure is better addressed with an extension of the...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this morning, Mr Crausby. The number of Members attending this debate shows concern about the future of our green belt among not only our constituents but Members. As individuals, we understand and accept the importance of the green belt and the need to ensure that it is not only protected but enhanced. At the outset, I will make what some...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: I will give way to as many hon. Members as I can.

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: My hon. Friend speaks with great passion on that issue, but this debate is about the green belt, and I hope he will forgive me if I continue to highlight the appallingly named draft national planning policy framework. All hon. Members, whatever party they come from, will agree that one problem with planning is the abundance of jargon. If ever an offence were to be created it could perhaps be...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: The Prime Minister and others have made it clear that there will be no change to the special protection afforded to the green belt. It is unfortunate that there has been a high level of scaremongering. If we believe what has been said by the Prime Minister and his Ministers—no doubt this Minister will give us yet more assurances—that does not square with the notion that our green...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely understand the point that my hon. Friend makes, but the great joy, as I see it, in the policy as outlined in the document that we are discussing is that it will enable communities to come together and work together to consider how best they can encourage growth and development in their areas. The two are not incompatible. I shall move on to a good example of sustainable development.

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend when he makes that point with such passion, but in some communities people may be content to have development on their green belt. That may be what they wish, if they see the benefit in their area. That is the beauty of this document, combined with the Localism Bill. That will enable communities to form their own neighbourhood plans, which may lead in...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: Many people in my constituency would completely echo my hon. Friend’s comments. Certainly in relation to Broxtowe, I completely agree with him. I can see little merit in any surrendering of the green belt in my constituency, for all the reasons that I have outlined. Sustainable development has got a very bad name, whereas it should have a very good name. I shall give a quick example of...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Green Belt (England) (18 Oct 2011)

Anna Soubry: I am extremely grateful to my hon. Friend for making that point. I have certainly taken the view—I may be wrong, so I am pleased that another Member agrees with me—that local authorities are absolutely not bound by the RSS figures, and if they have the courage, they can break free of them. Indeed, I was going on to give the example of Rushcliffe, which has taken exactly that...
