Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 292H (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 320 and 328, which would repeal the Vagrancy Act. This 197 year-old Act does nothing to tackle and resolve homelessness, and nor does it prevent antisocial behaviour. In fact, by criminalising rough sleepers, it prevents them accessing vital services to support them to move off the streets. This is important in the context of people trafficking—modern...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 269 (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, I shall speak shortly. I have always had a long interest in legal aid and its proper provision. My concern is that this amendment is aimed at the right target but goes too far. Look, for example, at the wording; as I understand it, it would apply every time there is an inquest involving someone who has died in a hospital. If that has been the result of possible negligence on the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 219B (17 Nov 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, perhaps I may begin by saying that I support Amendment 220. I endorse it completely and have nothing further to say on it. Noble Lords have spoken with great eloquence and force. As the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, has explained, my Amendment 221ZA, is a probing amendment designed to correct the terms of a subsection in Amendment 221 in case that amendment goes forward and the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 156 ( 8 Nov 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, I support these amendments. I do so as a resident and ratepayer of the London Borough of Wandsworth; I declare that interest. I was encouraged to speak in this debate and support these amendments by the Conservative leader of that borough. He believes that they are desirable and will be beneficial to the residents of his borough, and he will be answerable to his electorate in due...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 ( 1 Nov 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, it is a privilege to follow and support my noble friend Lord Moylan. If this speech is a little bit longer than I originally intended, it is to cover some of the ground that I understand would have been covered by the noble Lord, Lord Macdonald of River Glaven. Making non-crime hate records has real-life consequences for an individual that are too important to be left unregulated....

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, I begin with praise for the speech of my noble friend Lady Davidson, even though I take a different view on the Bill. For one who is new to this House, it is a heavy responsibility to speak on so important a debate. Like others, I received many compelling letters and emails putting both sides of the case. We have heard many powerful speeches, but I am clear in my own mind as to...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Second Reading (14 Sep 2021)

Lord Sandhurst: My Lords, it is an honour to speak in your Lordships’ House for the first time and to do so in support of this Bill, introduced by the noble Baroness, Lady Williams of Trafford. I am grateful for the kind words of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Garnier, and the noble Lords, Lord Bach and Lord Davies of Gower. When I succeeded my father in 2002, I never in my dreams expected that I would...
