Written Answers — Home Office: Missing Persons (16 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when the Missing Persons Register will be published.

Serious Violence (15 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: This has been a fantastic and wide-ranging debate, with truly excellent contributions from both sides of the House. It has demonstrated the complexity of the factors and causes behind serious violence, and the genuine crisis that is enveloping communities across the country. We heard from the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) about the excellent public health...

Serious Violence (15 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: But at that point, the police and crime commissioner already had a plan to use all available reserves purely to balance the books because of continued central Government cuts since 2010. I ask the hon. Gentleman whether he would rather see frontline officers on the beat, responding to violent crime, or police stations open. That is the invidious position that sustained central Government cuts...

Serious Violence (15 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: I think that the hon. Gentleman might have misheard me. I did not say anything about PCCs. He mentioned earlier that he was disappointed that we had voted against the settlement, and I am explaining exactly why: it is a fundamentally unfair way to fund the police and has no bearing on demand. The right hon. Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) built on her admirable campaigning work on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: Research by the “Victoria Derbyshire” show has revealed that in the last five years four children have been murdered following contact granted by the family courts to known abusers. This morning, more than 120 MPs wrote to the Justice Secretary calling for an independent inquiry into the treatment by the family courts of victims of domestic abuse and violence. Does the Prime Minister...

Facial Recognition and the Biometrics Strategy — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (1 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. This excellent discussion has been informed by expert opinion, particularly from my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol North West (Darren Jones), whom I congratulate on securing this important debate. I think the public would be shocked to hear about the lack of legislative framework and guidance, and the potential for such...

Facial Recognition and the Biometrics Strategy — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (1 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: That is completely right, and that is why this debate and the framework are so important. We cannot allow the police, with all the best intentions, to attempt to use this technology and then in some cases to mess it up—as they will—and have to roll it back. We want to ensure that the framework is in place so that the police can go ahead with confidence and the public have confidence. We...

Facial Recognition and the Biometrics Strategy — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (1 May 2019)

Louise Haigh: That is absolutely right. I do not get a strong impression that individual police forces are learning from each other either. In the case of the Met, the word “trial” has been used for the technology’s use at Notting Hill carnival. It has been trialled for three years in a row. When does a trial become a permanent fixture? I do not think that that can now be called a trial. My hon....

Written Answers — Home Office: Police (29 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate he has made of staffing levels in homicide and serious crime units within police forces in each year since 2010.

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: I speak as a co-chair of the all-party group on social care. Next week, we are launching an inquiry into the professionalisation of the social care workforce. My hon. Friend is making an important point about recruitment and retention and the need for more funding. The pressures and demands on funding are leading to a reduction in the professionalisation of the workforce, and as a result to...

Louise Haigh: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will list the (a) unsuccessful bids and (b) cost of those bids to the Home Office Early Intervention Youth Fund.

Climate Action and Extinction Rebellion (23 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: Global Witness published a report this morning that found that $4.9 trillion is invested in oilfields and gasfields that are either in development or not yet in production and will therefore contribute to exceeding a global warming scenario of 1.5°, as per the terms of the Paris accord. Much of that investment comes from FTSE 100-registered companies. What legal advice will the Government be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Child Sexual Abuse Victims (23 Apr 2019)

LGBT Rights: Brunei (10 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: I congratulate my hon. Friend on making an incredibly powerful speech. Given the problems that some LGBT asylum seekers have recently found in gaining asylum, will she join me in calling on the Minister to raise concerns with the Home Office to ensure that we in this country are granting sanctuary to those LGBT people who face persecution in their home countries?

Legal Aid for Inquests — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (10 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: I congratulate my hon. Friend on making a powerful speech, and I thank her for initiating the debate. The point she is making, and the examples she gives, are incredibly important. This debate is about death at the hands of the state, and the families who are trying to improve things so that such deaths never happen again, and the same mistakes—or criminal acts—are not made again. Given...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts (10 Apr 2019)

Louise Haigh: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to remove the parental rights of fathers of children conceived through rape; to make provision for an inquiry into the handling by family courts of domestic abuse and violence against women and girls in child arrangement cases; and for connected purposes. My Bill is to remove the automatic parental right of men who have fathered a child...
