Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Meaning of “ivory” (19 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Although I agree that we need to look at going beyond elephant ivory at some point, we need to get this Bill through quickly, even though it is narrow. I would have preferred it to be wider, but it cannot be because we have not consulted on that. Does the hon. Lady agree that it would be better to get the Bill through and to widen the scope at a later stage, as soon as we possibly can,...

NHS Long-Term Plan: Acquired Brain Injury (18 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: My hon. Friend talks about the cost of brain injuries. My constituent Stuart Tranter asked me to lobby the Government to put more money into brain tumour research, which has been very much the poor relation, and I have been successful. I congratulate the Government on having doubled that money since Tessa Jowell, who used to serve on the Opposition Benches and then went to the House of Lords,...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Pre-1975 musical instruments (14 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Plectrums are surely independent from the musical instrument; they are something that somebody chooses to use. If they are 100% either mammoth or elephant ivory, they will not be able to be sold. It is highly unlikely that any musician will rely on selling those in order to fund his or her retirement, because they are such small parts. I would have thought that that is a bit of an...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Pre-1918 portrait miniatures (14 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: I endorse what the hon. Lady has said. It was clear in the evidence that a measurement was wanted. The whole point about the Bill is that we need clarity and absolute certainty so that everyone knows exactly where they stand. If an item were bigger than is suggested, it would not be considered a miniature, because a miniature is something small. Whether the measurements are in inches or...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q We have heard from a lot of people about the ivory trade today and the Bill, which is very narrow. For a number of years I have been advocating that, if we have the ban, which hopefully we will, some specific organisation should verify artefacts as being internationally significant. Do you feel that you are sufficiently qualified to do this job? Clearly, we will look to your organisations...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q How would you fund that? If people came to you with their particular pieces of ivory, or ivory as part of something, how would you fund that? There would be a cost to you. Would you think of charging whoever it is that wants it?

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Can you tell me what you feel the situation would be for sales to overseas museums in the future if the measure goes through? The International Council of Museums is not an accreditation body in the same way as the Arts Council scheme in the UK, so how do feel that that could be relied on to give the right information?

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Does it not happen currently, or are they more loans that you give, rather than sales?

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q You would never sell anything to another museum.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Why is that?

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q So that the public can see that you are doing it, rather than it being a private sale.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Right, I can understand that. Mr Misquitta, you wanted the opportunity to say something about loans.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Surely, if you are not selling it—if you are only loaning it to someone—there should not be a problem. It is the sale of things containing or wholly made of ivory that is the problem.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q I am sure that is something the Minister will look at.

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: I have a question for Emma RutherfordQ . This morning we heard that the size of miniatures should be specified, because a miniature in one person’s eyes might not be a miniature in another’s. Do you have any strong feelings about that—about whether we should specify and, if we did, about what the specification should be? I have a further question for someone else, but I ask...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Does talk of 6 inches by 8 inches include the framing, or is that simply the actual miniature without the frame?

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: Q Yes. For the two musicians, Paul and David—I don’t know this—are musical instruments still produced with ivory in? Obviously, there is old ivory in musical instruments. Some very valuable musical instruments have ivory in, and I am sure that there must be bows used for violins or cellos that contain ivory, but they will be old ones—

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

Pauline Latham: There would be no new instruments with any ivory content, would there? When did that stop?
