Cinematograph Bill: Penalties and Forfeitures (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: I am impressed by the hon. Gentleman's argument about the need for consistency in the penalties. However, the Bill contains a maximum fine of £ 1,000 which is considered to small. The only proposed amendment seeks to raise it to £10,000. If one rejects the amendment, one is back to £1,000. One has to make a choice.

Cinematograph Bill: Powers of Arrest and Seizure (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: I appreciate the importance of the issue that the hon. Gentleman raises. Many cinemas have been, as it were, knocked out as a result of pirating. As I understand it, however, the purpose of the Bill is to extend to film clubs a system of licensing which at present relates to ordinary commercial cinemas and to ensure that the films shown have been passed by the British Board of Film Censors....

Cinematograph Bill: Powers of Arrest and Seizure (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: Is it not right that when those who prosecute issue a summons they name the Act under which they are prosecuting, so that accordingly the penalty can be imposed only under the particular Act, and the magistrates are not faced with a decision on which class of penalty to impose? They are restricted to the Act mentioned in the summons.

Cinematograph Bill: Powers of Arrest and Seizure (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: The Scots lag behind in other areas.

Cinematograph Bill: Powers of Arrest and Seizure (30 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: I was born in Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Violent Crime (Statistics) (22 Apr 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: In view of the fall in the occurrence of murder and a high clear-up rate of 97 per cent., and in view of the reduction in rape and other sexual offences, also with a high clear-up rate, is it not obvious that the real problem with which we are confronted is detecting those who commit run-of-the-mill offences?

Orders of the Day — Law and Order (25 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: No interest group or political party has a complete set of answers for deterring crime or for reforming, treating or rehabilitating offenders. That statement acknowledges that the causes of crime are exceedingly complex and difficult to control.I start with the proposition that crime increases when conviction rates fall. Another way of putting that is that we cannot punish those we cannot...

Orders of the Day — Law and Order (25 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: I do not agree with a word of what the hon. and learned Gentleman has said. He should give the Lord Chief Justice credit for knowing what he was about when he made his speech. He said that, although prison sentences did not do anyone any good, there must be sentences—sometimes long sentences—in some situations. He went on to say that often a shorter sentence will achieve the same effect...

Orders of the Day — Law and Order (25 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: No one can disagree with that proposition. I quite agree: there should be more education. But if prisoners are three to a cell 23 hours a day and must slop out and perform all their bodily functions before the others, they have no self-respect at the end of their sentence and are likely to know everything about crime that their fellow prisoners can teach them. Judges should be more...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Visitors (Health Service Charges) (17 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: The Minister refers solely to Australians and Americans, but what about the large number of elderly persons coming to visit ethnic minorities in this country and to see their children and grandchildren? Many of them will be too old to come with any insurance scheme and cannot be insured. Is not the proposal an attempt to raise money mainly from elderly people in the Third world, and not from...

Orders of the Day — Overseas Visitors (Health Service Charges) (17 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: Is the hon. Gentleman in favour of charging foreigners for entry to our museums and art galleries? What about the subsidy of several million pounds a year to Covent Garden? Americans take great advantage of that and pay half the value of the full ticket. Does the hon. Gentleman want to try to save some of that money, too?

Orders of the Day — Overseas Visitors (Health Service Charges) (17 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: The hon. Gentleman has just quoted a case from Hong Kong. Before that, he quoted a case from Portugal. Is he aware that there are reciprocal arrangements with both those countries, and that in future, after these regulations, those people will still be entitled to have that treatment? One example that the hon. Gentleman gave concerned a person who was permanently settled here. Under the new...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Terrorism (15 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: The Act poses a painful dilemma. On the one hand, all hon. Members want to prevent terrorism, which involves the indiscriminate killing of innocents. At the same time, the House has a tradition of supporting the principle of natural justice and wants to ensure that the legislation it passes is legislation of which we can all be proud and which conforms with the general principles of other...

Satellite Broadcasting ( 4 Mar 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: I welcome the proposal, but is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it will cost a householder about £200 for a new aerial and converter, which together with the supplemental licence fee will make it very difficult to have a good home market? Will he say how he intends to create a strong home market as a platform for exports in this science-based field?

Business of the House: Kincora Children's Home (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: rose——

Business of the House: Kincora Children's Home (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: In view of the terrible corruption of the young at Kincora over 20 years and the failure to pursue effectively the complaints made throughout most of that time about those events, is the Minister aware that everyone will applaud the setting up of an inquiry? Is he further aware that that inquiry should be armed with considerable powers? The police part of the inquiry should be carried out...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Elections (Voting Guidance) (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: Where all the parties agree, as they have on the council, that people should be encouraged to exercise their democratic rights, by notices that will help them do that, albeit with impartial guidance, does the Minister agree that that should be done?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Murder (Sentences) (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to enable judges to use their discretion to impose the sentence which seems appropriate to them on a conviction of murder.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Murder (Sentences) (18 Feb 1982)

Mr Edward Lyons: Is the Home Secretary aware that many trials in murder cases, especially in relation to domestic killings, take place in such a way as to achieve a manslaughter verdict, to give the judge the opportunity to pass an appropriate sentence instead of the automatic life sentence? Will he institute an inquiry to consider the advantages of giving judges the opportunity to pass an appropriate and...
