Petition - Provision of Adequate, Ring-Fenced Funding for Mental Health Services: UK Flight Ban: Sharm El Sheikh (13 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Lord: I would like to thank Mr Speaker for granting this important debate. I take a particular interest in the matter as a co-chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on Egypt. It is a privilege to serve alongside some excellent officers and the right hon. Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), the other co-chairman. In November 2015, the then Prime Minister, David Cameron, took the decision to...

Petition - Provision of Adequate, Ring-Fenced Funding for Mental Health Services: UK Flight Ban: Sharm El Sheikh (13 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Lord: I agree with my hon. Friend. When the all-party parliamentary group on Egypt, of which the right hon. Member for East Ham and I are co-chairmen, visited the country recently, it was instructive to note that virtually everyone we met was aware of the continuing UK ban. Parliamentarians, Ministers and business people obviously knew that the UK was now encouraging tourism back to Tunisia, and...

Petition - Provision of Adequate, Ring-Fenced Funding for Mental Health Services: UK Flight Ban: Sharm El Sheikh (13 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Lord: I agree with every single point that the hon. Gentleman has made.

Catfishing and Social Media — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Lord: Like the Minister, I first pay tribute to the hon. Member for Stockport (Ann Coffey) for an absolutely superb exposition not only of her constituent’s case but of the wider situation. Members listening to and participating in this debate would like the Minister to address a couple of points. First, there is no excuse whatsoever for people taking someone else’s identity online....

Catfishing and Social Media — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Lord: I have been listening carefully to the Minister’s remarks. A minute or so ago, I think he said that if the victim—in other words, the person whose identity has been stolen—has reputational damage, that is potentially a criminal offence. I cannot think of anything worse than that damage. In this case, it was proven that this man’s identity was taken and that multiple...

Catfishing and Social Media — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Lord: I see the hon. Lady is nodding. Either the law is deficient, or the police and the CPS are giving the wrong advice to her constituent. Things need to be tightened up.
