Public Order Bill: Clause 9 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services ( 7 Mar 2023)

Andrew Lewer: It does cause reputational damage to the police; the videos that some colleagues have seen are hugely disturbing. It makes it difficult for Ministers to stand up and say, “The police are on your side, they will defend you”, when people see a woman who is on her own and standing perfectly still being harassed by the police. I agree entirely with the comments that the hon. Gentleman has...

Public Order Bill: Clause 9 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services ( 7 Mar 2023)

Andrew Lewer: Indeed. The Lords amendment extends something that is already disturbing, as we see in some of the video instances that have taken place. These zones would be the only place in the UK where consensual communication is banned by the state—simply saying that sentence makes this seem such an absurdity. To those who say this would never happen, I say that it has indeed already happened. In...

Public Order Bill: Clause 9 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services ( 7 Mar 2023)

Andrew Lewer: That is exactly right, and I thank my hon. Friend for that contribution. Indeed, the question asked then was, “Are you praying?” When that was answered with, “I might be”, the next question was, “What are you praying about?” That was answered with, “I am praying in my head.” It is extraordinary that that leads to someone being arrested in this country in 2023. Last month, a...

Public Order Bill: Clause 9 - Offence of interference with access to or provision of abortion services ( 7 Mar 2023)

Andrew Lewer: That is an extremely important part of this amendment—it makes sure that those protections are very much still in place, as indeed they already are under the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022. Censorship is a notoriously slippery slope. It might not be our thoughts that are being criminalised today, but we should be careful not to open the door to that happening tomorrow to...

Justice: Transgender Prisoners (21 Feb 2023)

Andrew Lewer: I welcome the fact that the Government are issuing new guidance on the accommodation of such prisoners, but does my right hon. Friend agree that having no biological male imprisoned in a woman’s prison should be a strong principle henceforth? Does he agree that women’s prisons and the women within them must not be used as therapeutic support for trans-identifying male prisoners?

Fair Taxation of Schools and Education Standards Committee (11 Jan 2023)

Andrew Lewer: My right hon. Friend is making an excellent defence of the independent sector and its partnership work. Does she believe that Labour’s policy would also undo the fundamental principle that the UK does not tax the supply of education? Furthermore, there have been repeated references to “tax breaks” to mean simply not paying extra tax on top of the income tax that people already pay....
