Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 122 (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, for Amendment 122. This amendment would require the Secretary of State to prepare and issue a new code of practice for victims of major incidents. I will focus my response on the content of Amendment 122, as Amendment 123 is consequential on the former. While I understand the intentions of the amendments, I do not believe they are...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 122 (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: I understand the points made by both noble Baronesses. I have had extensive dialogue with the department on this point today and I will try to give the best answers I can. We can follow up further beyond that. As cases of non-criminal major incidents do not go through the criminal justice system, the measures in the Bill and code are not appropriate for this cohort. If a major incident...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 121 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, Amendment 121, tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, is intended to establish a regulation-making power to allow a qualified informant, typically a relative or close friend, to provide information to register a death where the death is the result of a major incident. I thank the noble Baroness for this intervention on such an important and complex issue. I also pay tribute to...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 121 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: It might help the noble Baroness if I wrote with a fuller explanation of how it could compromise that process.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 113 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Sandhurst for Amendment 113, in relation to the unduly lenient sentence scheme. It seeks to ensure victims and their families are given the necessary information about the scheme and, where this does not happen, provide for an extension of the relevant deadline. I understand the distress that victims may feel if they believe that the sentence given to an...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 113 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: The noble and learned Lord makes a very sensible request, and I will do my best to write to him.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 112 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, I thank my noble and learned friend Lord Garnier for raising this issue in Amendment 112. Fraud and other economic crimes have a profound impact on their victims, which is why this Government have been very clear about their commitment to tackle such crimes and to support victims. The measures in the Bill are designed to improve the experiences of all victims of crime, including...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67B ( 5 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: I thank noble Lords for their contributions to this debate on two related amendments. The amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes of Cumnock, would require the Secretary of State to publish guidance about older people’s IDVAs and ISVAs. The Government recognise the vital support that older people’s advisers provide to older victims of these terrible crimes. The advisers offer invaluable...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67B ( 5 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: I am afraid that the response to my noble friend is that the Government are absolutely adamant that service providers are the right people to make these decisions. They deal with a number of different concerns from victims and have to balance those against the resources available to their organisations.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67B ( 5 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: I am very happy to take the noble Baroness’s comments back to the Minister and the Government, and to discuss them.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67 ( 5 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, government Amendment 74 has been tabled to place a duty on the Secretary of State to issue guidance about victim support roles specified in regulations and to give the Secretary of State a power to make regulations that specify those roles. This replaces the current Clause 15, which specifies that guidance must be issued about independent sexual violence advisers and independent...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67 ( 5 Feb 2024)

Lord Roborough: I thank the noble Baroness for her point. While we are clear that there should be no hierarchy of support, and we know that ISVAs, IDVAS and ISAs are most effective when part of a wider support network, I will take that point away and consult the Minister.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Second Reading (24 Jan 2024)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, we will now have a short period to allow Members to table amendments. Members wishing to table amendments should do so by 6.43 pm, so in 30 minutes, and should contact the Public Bill Office. We will now have a repeat of an Urgent Question and then a short adjournment at the end of the tabling period. When we return, if there are no amendments, we will take the remaining stages of...

Road Safety Strategy - Question (18 Dec 2023)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, the Department for Transport constantly looks at how road safety can be improved. We have already intervened to update the Highway Code to protect the most vulnerable road users, invested in improvements for high-risk roads through the safer roads fund and changed the law to strengthen sentences for the most dangerous motoring offences. This demonstrates the importance of road...

Road Safety Strategy - Question (18 Dec 2023)

Lord Roborough: My Lords, priorities change. Road safety is not just about strategy documents—it is about making continuing improvements. Our recent 2022 statistics show a 2% reduction in fatalities compared with 2019, with traffic levels returning to pre-pandemic levels. This is why the Government are proud of ranking Britain fifth out of 38 countries with available data for the lowest number of road...

Road Safety Strategy - Question (18 Dec 2023)

Lord Roborough: We are investing more than £5 billion from 2020-21 to 2024-25 to maintain local roads, with an extra £200 million announced in the Budget in March 2023. This funding is enabling councils up and down the country to fill millions of potholes, repair dozens of bridges and resurface roads. In Network North, we announced £8.3 billion of new funding to fix the blight of potholes over a 10-year...

Road Safety Strategy - Question (18 Dec 2023)
