Maria Miller: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Fovargue, and to bring the Bill to the Committee. I thank all colleagues for agreeing to sit on the Committee and for enabling us to scrutinise the Bill in some detail. Before I start, I should put on record my gratitude to the secretary-general of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, Stephen Twigg, for his steadfast commitment to...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and International Committee of the Red Cross (Status) Bill: Clause 1 - The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association ( 6 Mar 2024)

Maria Miller: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his comments, and I recognise his support for all the work that has got us here today. The Bill was passed unanimously on Second Reading, and I hope the clauses and amendments will continue to have the support of the Government and everybody in this room today. It provides the necessary delegated legislation-making powers for the CPA and the ICRC to be treated...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and International Committee of the Red Cross (Status) Bill: Clause 2 - The International Committee of the Red Cross ( 6 Mar 2024)

Maria Miller: I beg to move amendment 1, clause 2, page 2, line 13, at end insert— “(e) provide for protected ICRC information to be exempt from any disclosure requirement imposed by— (i) an order of a court or tribunal in proceedings other than criminal proceedings, or (ii) a statutory provision or rule of law. (2) In subsection (1)(e), “protected ICRC information” means information— (a) that...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and International Committee of the Red Cross (Status) Bill: Clause 2 - The International Committee of the Red Cross ( 6 Mar 2024)

Maria Miller: This section of our discussion focuses on the International Committee of the Red Cross, commonly known as the ICRC. Clause 2 and amendments 1 and 2 run together, although amendment 2 is a consequential amendment to clause 4. Clause 2 confers on the ICRC the legal capacities of a body corporate, just as clause 1 confers them on the CPA. It is an important move for the organisation, because it...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: First, I should point out that I think every debate should end with two Marias. I thank all Members who have spoken for their contributions today. Words matter, and the words we use matter even more because they are often repeated by people outside. That point has been clearly made by a number of Members today and I thank them for doing so. I thank everybody for their contributions and remind...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: The hon. Lady makes an important point. Will she join me in regretting ever hearing a Member of this House refer to their opponent as “scum”?

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: I beg to move, That this House has considered the use of language in politics in light of International Women’s Day; agrees that the respectful use of language is an important feature of a strong and inclusive democracy; and calls on all parliamentary candidates to pledge that respectful language will be used at all times in the upcoming General Election campaigning period. I would like to...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, and for her support for the all-party parliamentary group. Trying to make this a place that people want to come to should be a cross-party effort, along with tackling social media abuse and not only holding online platforms to account, but ensuring that they take down abusive images and messages inciting violence against Members of Parliament. That...

International Women’s Day: Language in Politics (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: The hon. Lady is entirely right. In fact, I had included that analogy in my speech, but I took it out for the sake of time. I see that you are looking at me intently, Madam Deputy Speaker, and I know that a great many Members want to take part in the debate. As the hon. Lady says, there is a discussion to be had about language versus behaviour. We have tools such as a code of conduct and the...

Security of Elected Representatives (29 Feb 2024)

Maria Miller: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. He has made it clear that this is not only about security and policing and that we need to look for new ways to tackle what is fuelling anti-democratic abuse, which many hon. and right hon. Members are facing in their day-to-day work. Too often, that culture is developing online. Will he consider my call for a Committee of this House to monitor...

Shared Rural Network Implementation (24 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: Order. I am sure that the hon. Lady is coming to a close.

Shared Rural Network Implementation (24 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: Order. This is a 60-minute debate. I need to move to the Front-Bench contributions at 5.8 pm, and I have about six Members rising to speak—do the maths. Please bob if you want to speak. If we are to get everyone in, I suggest a limit of three or four minutes for every speech. If Members adhered to that, it would be amazing.

Mentoring (24 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: I will call Dr Lisa Cameron to move the motion and then call the Minister to respond. As is the convention for a 30-minute debate, there will not be an opportunity for the Member in charge to wind up.

International Human Rights Abuses: UK Response — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (24 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: Order. I remind hon. Members that they should bob if they wish to speak in the debate. Given the number of people on my list, Members will have seven to eight minutes to speak. I call Debbie Abrahams.

Revised National Planning Framework (23 Jan 2024)

Maria Miller: Can my hon. Friend confirm that there will be more types of exceptional circumstances put forward in the future than there have been in the past?
