Business of the House: Terrorism Act 2000 (Section 44) (8 Jul 2010)

Mark Reckless: The Home Secretary should realise that the new guidelines will be very welcome in Kent, where we have had to deal with a number of criticisms of the use of stop-and-search, particular with respect to the climate camp at Kingsnorth. Does she agree that although senior police officers should be consulted on such matters, it is essential that national policy guidance should be determined by her,...

Nato: Political and Constitutional Reform (5 Jul 2010)

Mark Reckless: The Deputy Prime Minister proposes a referendum on how we are elected. He has also proposed an in-or-out referendum on Europe. Is he aware that some of us will vote to give him a referendum on AV only if he gives us the in-or-out referendum?

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Policing in the 21st Century (26 Jul 2010)

Mark Reckless: The Home Secretary has done what the Opposition failed to do-she has stood up to the vested interests and put the police under democratic control. Since she does not envisage allowing directly elected individuals to direct particular investigations, will she assure the House that she will not sign up to a European investigation order that would allow political appointees in other member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Constitution and Home Affairs (7 Jun 2010)

Mark Reckless: I congratulate the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Gemma Doyle) and Members on both sides of the House on the excellent maiden speeches we have heard today. I thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker, for recognising me for this maiden speech. It is, after all, five years since my predecessor, Bob Marshall-Andrews, took to the airwaves to concede defeat. Many Members may have heard him admit defeat...

Crayford Station (Access) (7 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: On funding, our constituents who use the Southeastern trains service have particularly high expectations, and investment in the service is quite justified, because for reasons that I do not fully understand, Southeastern was singled out by the previous Government for RPI plus three rather than RPI plus one increases.

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Crime and Policing (8 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: I declare an interest in that I spent this morning, as a member of the Kent police authority, working with the chief constable on getting cracking on finding these savings. He has bravely set out his plans to find a 20% reduction, which is his assumption, and he is working towards that target. There is one element of the motion that I welcome, and that is the recognition from Labour Members...

Energy and Climate Change: Low-carbon Technologies (16 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: I welcome the review of the four clean coal demonstrator sites, particularly the focus on retro-fitting. Will the Government give proper and full consideration to the proposal for carbon capture and storage put forward by Kingsnorth, in my constituency? Will it be possible to allow that to go ahead with the fitting of CCS to only one of the four turbines, rather than the two previously...

Business of the House (16 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: I am looking forward to presenting a ten-minute Bill on the afternoon of the comprehensive spending review. Does my right hon. Friend agree that, rather than our returning to the days when Members slept outside an office in sleeping bags for 24 or 48 hours, it would be appropriate for slots to be allocated by the Backbench Business Committee?

Written Answers — Home Department: CCTV: Regulation (16 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when she plans to bring forward legislative proposals regulating the use of CCTV.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: European Investigation Order (27 Jul 2010)

Mark Reckless: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for coming to the House, and I have been working hard to try to understand the Government's position on this matter. However, I did not understand fully, from her statement, whether European authorities will not be able to order an investigation. Surely, the EIO does what it says on the tin, and allows European prosecutors and police to order an...

Bill Presented: Draft EU Budget 2011 (13 Oct 2010)

Mark Reckless: Does my hon. Friend agree that in the current financial circumstances we should be talking not about budget increases or even budget neutrality but about reductions in the EU budget, as proposed in the excellent amendment (b)?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Young Offenders (19 Oct 2010)

Mark Reckless: What proportion of young offenders reoffended within (a) one and (b) two years of being released from custody in the latest period for which figures are available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Young Offenders (19 Oct 2010)

Mark Reckless: Given the abject failure of the Youth Justice Board to reduce reoffending among our young people, what plans does the Minister have to replace it, and in particular what role does he envisage for the private and voluntary sectors in that area?

Police Terms and Conditions of Service (Redundancy) (20 Oct 2010)

Mark Reckless: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision for police officers to be offered, or be made subject to, terms of redundancy; to set out the circumstances in which such redundancies can be made; and for connected purposes. I should first declare an interest as a member of the Kent police authority. In that role, working with Kent's chief constable, I will have to help...

Written Answers — Home Department: DNA: Databases (14 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when she expects to bring forward legislative proposals to limit the retention of DNA profiles taken from those arrested but not convicted; for how long from the point of arrest she proposes that profiles of those arrested but not convicted in cases deemed serious should be retained before removal; and by what date she expects existing DNA...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: UK Membership of EU (14 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment has been made of the level of public support for continued UK membership of the EU.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: UK Membership of EU (14 Sep 2010)

Mark Reckless: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will bring forward legislative proposals for a referendum on whether the UK should remain a member of the EU.

Sustainable Livestock Bill (12 Nov 2010)

Mark Reckless: Is not a further issue with clause 1(4)-potentially an advantage, rather than a problem-that it might not be consistent with our obligations under the European Communities Act 1972?

Sustainable Livestock Bill (12 Nov 2010)

Mark Reckless: I am cautious about contradicting my hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg), but if we inserted the provision "notwithstanding the European Communities Act 1972", there would be nothing illegal about the clause whatsoever, and would not the courts be obliged to give effect to it?

Business of the House (18 Nov 2010)

Mark Reckless: May I repeat the request for a debate on Ireland? My grandfather served in the Dail for Fianna Fail, and if he could see it now, he would be turning in his grave. Surely the message from this House to those politicians must be that we will not vote for a penny to bail out their euro, whereas the message to the Irish people must be that we will give whatever support is necessary to support an...
