Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I am very grateful to the Minister for the many telephone conversations that we have had during the passage of this Bill and for keeping me up to date, albeit not on last week’s amendment. Does he understand that the reason why some of us on the SNP Benches are concerned by the designated area clause is that my very good friend and professional colleague at the Bar, David Anderson, who...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I would just very gently say to the hon. Gentleman that it ill behoves him to question the motives of democratically elected Members who seek to test the necessity and proportionality of an amendment that was only tabled two or three days ago. I would ask him to consider his approach and his language. The reason I wanted to intervene was that the Australians have a sunset clause on this...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: On a point of order, Sir Lindsay.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Is it really in order for this hon. Member to impugn my motives and suggest that I want to make the people of Scotland, or indeed the United Kingdom, unsafe simply by testing an amendment? Is that really in order? It seems to me pretty close to being out of order.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: The hon. Lady is being very generous with taking interventions. She said a moment ago that leaving the EU would not matter in terms of our co-operation with the EU. Does she not understand that when we leave the EU we will be a third country and that third countries do not have the same access to information sharing as members of the EU? Indeed, it is why our “Five Eyes” allies...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Can the hon. Lady name any third country that has the same access to information-trading within the EU as an EU member?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: Name a country that has the same access.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I am a little puzzled. The Government have conceded that clause 3, as originally drafted, was imperfect and lacked sufficient clarity, but do they not make the problem worse by removing the requirement for three clicks, so that only one click will suffice, and broadening the offence to include not just viewing but accessing material in any way? I do not understand how these amendments...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I am not satisfied with that explanation, because the reasonable excuse defence is only there for somebody who does not know what they are doing. What if somebody legitimately accesses the material, knowing its content, but without any intent to commit harm—for example, an academic or a researcher? They would not be protected by that defence, would they? [Interruption.]

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Entering or remaining in a designated area (11 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: As the Minister says, we already have quite a lot of offences with extraterritorial jurisdiction, and clause 5 would add to them. What can he do to convince us that the amendment is necessary and proportionate, given the plethora of extraterritorial offences that already exist?

Legal Aid: Post-Implementation Review (4 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: It is a pleasure, Sir Christopher, to serve under your chairmanship. I congratulate the hon. Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) on securing this important debate. It has been a pleasure to work with her on these matters in the Joint Committee on Human Rights and I very much admired her tenacity in getting to the bottom of things. As she has said today, this issue is fundamentally about...

Legal Aid: Post-Implementation Review (4 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: The hon. Gentleman is, like me, a Member for a Scottish constituency, and will be aware that the legal aid system in Scotland is completely different, with much wider scope and eligibility.

Brexit Negotiations and No Deal Contingency Planning (4 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: An opinion poll commissioned by Best for Britain showed yesterday that a majority of Scots favour independence if the UK leaves the European Union as planned; is that a risk the Minister is willing to take?

HMP Birmingham (4 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: It is clear that prisons in England and Wales are suffering from excessive budget pressures, inconsistent policy and a lack of direction. The Minister recently visited the prisons system in Scotland, and while prison staffing levels in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have fallen by around a third since 2010, in Scotland they have increased by 14%, and we have minimised cuts to our justice...

Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Joanna Cherry: I commend the right hon. Lady, the shadow Home Secretary, for securing this urgent question on such an important issue. Over the summer we have learned that wrongly deported Windrush generation citizens died before they could be repatriated. We have learned that the private firm responsible for removing Windrush citizens operated on the basis of incentives for exceeding its removal targets....

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legislation (24 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: In the Secretary of State’s previous incarnation, he campaigned for the repeal of the Human Rights Act and its replacement with a Bill of Rights. Despite campaigning vigorously since 2009, he failed to secure his objective, and the Government have now ditched the policy. What makes him think that he can finalise the remaining 20% of the withdrawal agreement and solve the difficult...

Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty (23 Jul 2018)

Joanna Cherry: It goes without saying that we all condemn terrorism and that we all believe terrorists should be brought to justice, and it really is not good enough for the Minister to imply that any of us in the House is against terrorists being brought to justice. The issue is why and in what circumstances the UK Government are departing from their long-standing policy of opposing the death penalty...
