Liz Blackman: rose—

Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 60 — Extent (24 Jun 2003)

Liz Blackman: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way. He has rightly pointed out that the Bill will not be worth the paper that it is written on unless its measures are enforced, and we all have a role to play in that. Could he just flesh out a little more what role the Government will play in that, because we have a lot to learn about the progress of antisocial behaviour orders? They are implemented...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: New clause 5 - Removal of unauthorised encampments and waste (22 May 2003)

Liz Blackman: I, too, can relate several awful incidents when groups of travellers have visited my constituency and left the sort of legacy of despoilment that other members of the Committee have described. Crime has increased and there have been acts of intimidation. Inevitably, the price of that conduct has been paid by the local authority and therefore by the local taxpayer. The new clauses are born of...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: New clause 5 - Removal of unauthorised encampments and waste (22 May 2003)

Liz Blackman: Thank you, Mr. Cran. My hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey argued that travellers should be accorded the same human rights as others, but that human rights considerations did not prevent the use of the law to prevent illegal trespass leading to antisocial or criminal behaviour. She said to the right hon. Member for Bracknell (Mr. Mackay): ''The right hon. Gentleman might be interested in a...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 48 - Penalty notices in respect of graffiti or (20 May 2003)

Liz Blackman: I want to confine my comments to a couple of points. I have never believed that the quality of the environment is an add-on. It is essential to people's self-esteem and feeling of well-being and it enables them to feel part of the community. I welcome the clause. I want to take up one of the issues identified by the hon. Member for Surrey Heath concerning the funding of the imposition of...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 47 - Dealing with noise at night (20 May 2003)

It is more a question of resolving to exercise available powers rather than the simplistic explanation given by the hon. Member for Uxbridge.

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 36 - Anti-social behaviour orders (15 May 2003)

Liz Blackman: I accept that we are not starting with a blank sheet, but will the Minister accept that councils perform differently? The Government may need to be a little more proactive in targeting those that perform less well, in order to get them up to the mark.

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 36 - Anti-social behaviour orders (15 May 2003)

Friend mentioned that it would be a good idea to further spread best practice and that more work needed to be done on that. Could he flesh out how that will happen and how he sees the strategic role of Government in ensuring...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 13 - Injunctions against anti-social behaviour on application of certain social landlords (13 May 2003)

Liz Blackman: Does the Minister agree that the clauses outline and enforce the fact that the measure is a threat as well as a reality and that it must be spelled out in plain English to the tenants? If they do not understand that the threshold is lower and the expectation of behaviour higher, the clauses will not be implemented in the way in which we want them to be.
