Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for East Renfrewshire (Paul Masterton) and to hear his positive case for a global Britain. I am also grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) for speaking with such passion about this extremely timely subject. In Brexit, we are managing the most momentous political change of my lifetime. This period...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: Yes. I do not want this to descend into a Brexit debate. I was a floating voter during the referendum. I very much hope that having voted to leave the European Union, we are not seen as having an isolationist instinct, because my hon. Friend is right—we share a great number of values, and those relationships will be extremely important as we go forward in an increasingly uncertain world.

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: I thank my hon. Friend for his point. The point I was making is that although we might assume that these are universal global values, we have seen in recent years that we cannot assume their universality. That is why we, as a nation, need to stand for something in the world. There is a debate to be had about those values, and it is important that the UK has a strong independent voice in that...

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: Certainly. The problem with the debate on aid is that it is so often perceived as a DFID-bashing exercise, and that is not what I intend my comments to be. They are a statement that, actually, the Foreign Office needs to take a strong leadership role so that DFID money is not frittered away on projects that have no strategic value to what we are trying to achieve in the world.

Brexit, Science and Innovation: Global Britain and the International Rules-based Order (6 Sep 2018)

Julia Lopez: I agree with my hon. Friend. I welcome the cross-departmental work that FCO and DFID Ministers are already doing in trying to move us towards that approach, although I would like that work to develop through the further integration of aid with our military, diplomatic and trade commitments, and I would like the FCO to be given the premier leadership role in that regard. In withdrawing from...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: Following this week’s votes, which make aspects of the White Paper less tenable and certainly less likely to be accepted by the EU, has the Secretary of State had any discussions with No. 10 and within his own Department about modifying the UK’s negotiating position?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: I do not consider myself to be a Brexiteer, but two years ago, when asked to make a choice about the future direction of the country that I love, I voted to leave the European Union, knowing that it would be difficult but believing that our nation could make it work. I was not alone, and I have now been joined by those who voted remain and wish to respect our democracy. Does my right hon....

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: It is extremely dangerous in debates like this to talk about the Muslim community as if it has a single viewpoint.

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: I am sorry that I addressed the Chair. I apologise. Prevent deals with extremely delicate issues, and it is about building trust in the community, so we cannot talk about the community as though it is singular. For instance, groups of mothers who are extremely worried about their children leaving for places such as Syria want to engage with Prevent. Saying that Prevent is divisive and...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications (3 Jul 2018)

Julia Lopez: I also share the concerns on home education—as the Minister will know, because I have expressed them to him personally. I wonder whether, at the very least, an amendment could be tabled that would exclude from home educating any household of which a member has been convicted of a terrorist offence. I know how passionately a lot of home educators feel about their freedoms, and I respect...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: I am glad to follow the right hon. Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), who I know has very personal experience of these issues. As a London MP, I welcome the Bill as a vital tool in the fight against the kinds of violent crime that are sadly increasing across the capital. While overall crime continues to fall, knife crime, gun crime and homicide are unfortunately on the rise, and we are...

Offensive Weapons Bill (27 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: That does indeed sound like, basically, a good idea. I think everyone agrees that police visibility is vital to maintaining the trust of the community, and to the sharing of intelligence. The variety of issues that the police are being asked to tackle is becoming ever broader, and rapid demographic and technological change are spreading the challenges across more boroughs. To put it simply,...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: I wanted to raise this when we were debating the three clicks issue, but it seems to me that there are parallels between viewing terror material and viewing child pornography content. I am keen to understand your Q positions on the issue of establishing a pattern of behaviour and when is an appropriate time to prosecute somebody for viewing material. Does Liberty believe that you should...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: Q So a beheading would not be considered the same?

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: I would like to move us on to corporations and local authorities. I was a councillor in Tower Hamlets at the time when we had three of our schoolgirls go to Syria, and it became clear that it was not just a counter-terrorism issue but a safeguarding, welfare and child-grooming issue. I wonder in what ways this legislation proves that you are working with local authorities. Do you think there...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: Q Do you think this legislation goes some way towards dealing with that issue, or do you think that local authorities are neither financially equipped nor have the expertise to be able to do what you need them to do?

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: Q Do you have anything to add, Mr McGill?

Health and Social Care: People with Learning Disabilities (19 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: Providers of day care services for people with learning disabilities are not currently subject to an inspection regime. Will the Minister consider bringing such services within the scope of the Care Quality Commission to reassure families about quality and safeguarding issues?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jun 2018)

Julia Lopez: This month, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence—NICE—will decide whether to fund a new treatment for neuroblastoma, a vicious childhood cancer that is affecting my constituent, Isla Caton. Will the Prime Minister encourage NICE and the drugs companies to do a deal to provide new treatments for children in Britain, so that their families do not have to fundraise...
