Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 3 (25 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I am grateful for the kind words a number of noble Lords have said. This may be a modest start, but it is a start, and I am sure that the conversation will continue. In particular, as I said when we discussed this matter substantively, I am well aware that the Justice Select Committee is looking at this matter. It will be reporting soon and, while I cannot go quite as far as my...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (25 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, this amendment has been tabled—in haste, it appears, as I will explain in a moment—at a very late stage in proceedings. It is not clear in its intention and appears to relate to an important category of people who I do not think any of the speakers in support of the amendment referred to. I will come back to that point. I listened carefully to the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, who...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners' Release: Females (19 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: We recognise how important it is that everyone leaving prison should have somewhere to live, as accommodation enables offenders to hold down a job and reduces the likelihood of them re-offending. Community Probation Practitioners and Homelessness Prevention Teams take proactive steps before release with prison leavers at risk of homelessness, including referral to Local Housing Authorities...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 161 (17 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I know this is the business that most people have been waiting for. Amendments 161 and 162 have both arisen following the consolidation of sentencing procedural law into the Sentencing Code by the Sentencing Act 2020. These amendments, as eagle-eyed noble Lords will have realised, omit provisions in Schedule 24 to the Sentencing Act 2020 and Schedule 13 to the Counter-Terrorism and...

The Motion highlights concern about whether debtors have been overcharged in respect of the VAT that attaches to the fees charged by High Court enforcement officers. The statutory instrument before the House sets out how the VAT that...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 107B (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I am very grateful for the support that the amendment has received across the House. This ought to be a cross-party issue and I am very pleased that it has been. I repeat my thanks to all those who worked with me and my ministerial colleagues to get this amendment before the House this evening. As it is a cross-party matter, it is quite right for me also to thank Yvette Cooper in...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 107A (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I am very grateful for the warm words from across the House and for the support this amendment has received. I will pick up a couple of the points made. First, I respectfully agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman, that we want to normalise and support—to use her verbs—women who are breastfeeding; that is very important. It is a matter for my department in this legislation...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 107A (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: The question which has to be asked is: was this done for the purpose of humiliating the woman breastfeeding? To answer that you would look at all the relevant circumstances. I would suspect that, rather like the upskirting offence, in the vast majority of cases the question almost answers itself, given our experience from upskirting. In this area, as in all areas, if, once the offence has...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 106 (12 Jan 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: As I say, we discussed this with a wide range of people, and it seemed to us from looking at all the material that sport and religion are the particular areas where law at the moment should intervene. I was coming to this point. The noble Lord presented the amendment saying, “Abuse can take place in other relationships too”, and of course he is absolutely right. However, abuse can take...
