Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q It is probably a little bit late in the day, but would you be able to say briefly what Brook is and what work you do? I have grasped it, but it may be worth putting it on record. When you talk about the effect on children, we heard Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt saying earlier that sexual offences have gone up 8% or 9% in the past year, so there is an increase in this type of crime....

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q It is interesting to hear that, and I am sure that it is correct. Would the other side of the coin be that perhaps schools do not want to criminalise young people too early and put a stigma against them? We have heard people talking about innocent joshing about and having a bit of fun. Is that coming into the equation?

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: I would like to get some clarity and then ask a question, if I may. You appear to be interested in extending the scope of the legislation—you talked about New South Wales and other areas where such legislation has more scope—and, at the same time, in increasing the number of defences that could be relied upon, if I am reading this properly. In doing so, would you be concerned that...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q When Gina Martin brought this to the police in the first place, she was able to get somebody on to it straight away, because there was a police officer there. The first thought was that it would be treated through the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 more generally, yet that did not come to anything. Is that because it was not previously covered or because it is difficult to prove a...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q Thank you for that answer. You seem to be implying that there is more scope for expanding this list of offences.

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: It was really disturbing when we discussed this and you relayed how it had happened to you. Part of this was the pressure of people around you. It was quite a physical event for you. There seem to be two elements to this: the upskirting and the taking of the photograph to humiliate you and the passing around. How do you view those two incidents in terms of the humiliation aspect, or is there...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q Just on that point, where would the balance be? We are differentiating between a younger person fooling around, taking photos and sharing them and someone who has a different, more sinister intent, but would the impact on the person who is the victim not be the same? How are we going to get the balance between thinking about the intent of the person committing the crime and the impact on...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Q At the impact on the victim.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: What steps the Government plan to take to ensure that the UK legal system operates effectively after the UK leaves the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Leaving the EU: UK Legal System (10 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: The application of new technology has the potential to make our justice system even fairer and more effective. Measures such as the adoption of the use of video technology in court by the Courts and Tribunals Service could aid speed and accessibility. Will the Minister tell me how the Government aim to encourage much-needed innovation in the justice and legal system?

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin and Harpenden (Bim Afolami), particularly as this is the first time he has spoken on a Friday. Let me echo the words of other Members and thank my hon. Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield) for guiding this important Bill through the House. I also thank my right hon. Friend and constituency neighbour, now the Secretary...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Luciana Berger). I too add my congratulations to the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) on introducing this Bill and on his tireless efforts to guide this important piece of legislation through the House. I was here last month, when this Bill was last discussed, but unfortunately I did not get an opportunity to...

Amesbury Incident (5 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: There will be a great temptation to engage in speculation following this latest incident. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the police must be given the space that they need to be able to fully investigate the facts and establish exactly what happened?

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Last weekend, I attended an excellent EqualiTeas event organised by Bramhall and Woodford guides. I discovered that across my constituency hundreds of children are waiting to go into guides and scouts, but that a lack of volunteers is preventing them from doing so. Will my right hon. Friend join me, as a former beaver leader, in recognising the importance of the valuable work scouting and...

Universal Credit (5 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: When I visited Stockport jobcentre and met its work coaches, I found an enthusiastic group of people who are keen to make a difference to people’s lives. Will the Secretary of State join me in congratulating them and all jobcentre workers across the country who are so enthusiastic about transforming lives and making a difference?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Popular Bramhall hairdressers Ed and Mike are visiting Parliament today. Like many other small businesses, it is because of their skills, expertise and hard work that they are successful. Will the Prime Minister join me in praising small businesses up and down the country for the work that they do, and does she agree that is by building a strong economy that we provide the best conditions for...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Mary Robinson: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton West (Chris Green) on securing the debate. The hon. Lady is entirely right to focus on pharma and on our trade links with Israel. I understand that in seven of the past 10 years the UK has had a trade surplus with Israel. Does she agree that we can build on that, and that it shows the strength of our trading relationship both now and for...
