Covid-19 (22 Oct 2020)

Chris Green: The Government and the whole of British society have made an amazing response to covid and to the challenge that we have faced. We knew very little about it at the beginning, but we have evolved and adapted with time. Society now is so different—who would have believed at the beginning that we would be in this position now, sanitising our hands every time we went into a shop, wearing masks...

Covid-19: Disparate Impact (22 Oct 2020)

Chris Green: I thank my hon. Friend for her statement, which highlights a whole range of factors that are distributed right across the country.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: High Street Businesses: Covid-19 (5 Oct 2020)

Chris Green: I thank my right hon. Friend for his answer. I also thank the Government for deciding to ease the lockdown on Bolton so that people can start using cafés, pubs and restaurants more normally.

As a further step, will he consider having 10 pm as last orders to enable a safe exit from pubs and...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: My hon. Friend makes a really important point about the quality of evidence and expertise. That was covered in the forensic science regulator’s report, published earlier this year, which talked of: “Implementation of quality standards is a means to this end, ensuring a systematic approach to scientific validity, competence and quality.” The report therefore covers the regulator’s...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: Given recent events—some of the providers have failed—does my hon. Friend agree that having more comprehensive provision and more providers will enable a more resilient service? The excess capacity that could develop within the system would ensure that, if a problem arises in the future, other providers can cope with it.

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: My hon. Friend the Member for Hertford and Stortford (Julie Marson) makes an interesting point, further to which I note that if the forensic system works effectively and efficiently and the evidence is introduced early in the investigation, that can give someone a reason to say, “Look, I did it,” and thereby curtail the whole investigation, saving huge amounts of money and delivering...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bristol North West (Darren Jones) on bringing forward such an important Bill at such an important time. There is so much pent-up demand in both Houses of Parliament for this Bill to be delivered, and I know that the Home Office is incredibly enthusiastic about it, so it is timely that we will get it done. Unfortunately, in the previous Parliament I tried...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: The hon. Lady makes a fair point. When a direction of travel is set, it is sometimes difficult to change it around. The Forensic Science Regulator, Dr Gillian Tully, in her foreword to the 2019 annual report, published earlier this year, sets out clearly and comprehensively what we ought to think about in the debate. I will therefore read from the foreword at length, which says: “Whether it...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: I think that point reflects on what the hon. Member for Bristol North West said about this being a starting point in terms of the regulator body. This also reflects upon the sphere of law and order and the justice system that it ought to be looking at and investigating. It is those two aspects together that overall will require significant resources, and to get more and increasingly...

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: I agree with the concerns that my hon. Friend highlights. When the system looks in one way or another at a victim’s smart device, which has so many personal messages and so much personal information on it, the victim needs reassurance that it will be done in the right way and they ought to feel safe. I am cautious that that ought not to be an impediment to their seeking justice.

Forensic Science Regulator and Biometrics Strategy Bill (25 Sep 2020)

Chris Green: I appreciate my hon. Friend’s concerns, but I would be cautious about going down that route. Increasingly, the policing system as a whole reflects on the specialist skills required to do the work and within that system there is increasing recognition that the police need people who are perhaps badged as police but who would not fit into the traditional view of policing. Whether those people...
