Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Ofwat: Staff (21 Jul 2023)

Rebecca Pow: Ofwat staff considering accepting a role in a water company complete a business appointment rules (BAR) application prior to accepting any role where the BAR may be engaged. Employees must comply with the BAR after leaving office for the period for which they apply. In most cases that period is one year and for senior level employees the period is two years. Ofwat has placed temporary...

Sir David Amess Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2023)

Sara Britcliffe: ...attempting to light the candles in the pouring rain, Members can imagine that it was becoming rather frustrating that Sir David was not giving up. Eventually, though, he did, and we ended up at the pub and getting his dog of the day captured from the Ossy Con club in Oswaldtwistle. Our duty in this place is to our constituents who elect us. For some, the cut and thrust of parliamentary...

Higher Education Reform - Statement (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: this place this afternoon, giving us the opportunity to question her. I declare my interest, such as it is, in that I completed an internship—a stage—in the European Commission, followed by a Bar apprenticeship, both of which counted towards my professional qualification as a Scottish advocate. Can I just press my noble friend on two small issues? One is that the academic...

Veterans Update - Statement (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness Goldie: ..., atrocious experiences they endured. I will deal specifically with some of the points raised. Before doing so, I will move some of the glasses next to the Dispatch Box; it is a bit like a cocktail bar here. It is slightly less enlivening in the imbibing sense, but still slightly cluttered. The noble Lord, Lord Coaker, was interested in the broad frame of eligibility. I double-checked that...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 163 (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: ...for some areas, to encourage development and the movement of businesses to those areas. The noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, raised similar issues in moving her amendment to support the pub industry, which we support. My noble friend Lord Scriven has signed the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, who I do not think is in his place, regarding the...

Ukraine - Question (20 Jul 2023)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I assure the noble Lord that we are working bilaterally with other partners and directly with India in raising the bar on the importance of sanctions to be sustained. Of course, the deals that have been done—what has been referred to as the “rouble-rupee” deal—have not actually leveraged anything beyond one particular deal that was done in December last year. I take on board...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Trials (20 Jul 2023)

Mike Freer: ...trials were for these reasons combined). Across 2022, the proportion of ineffective trials in the Crown Court for all offences increased significantly as a result of the impact of the Criminal Bar Assocation (CBA) action. ‘Lack of defence advocate availability’ was the largest reason for all ineffective trials throughout 2022 (35%) and accounted for 22% (484 trials) in Q4 2022 once CBA...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 100 (18 Jul 2023)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: ...overall levels. We discussed this issue at some length in Committee, so I will not go into detail on the risks that we believe this approach carries. However, it remains unclear why this low-bar test for new regulations has been chosen over the higher bar provided by the Environment Act, Section 20 of which requires Ministers to state that new legislation will not reduce the level of...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill: Clause 13 - Conduct of reviews (18 Jul 2023)

Peter Kyle: ...had been to try to secure justice for more, not fewer, people. This Bill will affect the entire United Kingdom and our reputation abroad. The families of the 21 victims of the IRA Birmingham pub bombing have been clear that they do not want immunity to be on offer. In November, the chief constable of West Midlands police confirmed that files had been passed on to the Crown Prosecution...

Cost of Living: Private rented sector — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (18 Jul 2023)

Paulette Hamilton: .... In the last month alone, two new planning applications have been made for HMOs in my constituency. One is to turn a three-bedroom property into a seven-bed HMO, and one is to turn a former pub into a 10-bed HMO. I led a campaign calling on local people to object, and our petition collected the support of 398 concerned residents in a week. That is an issue that my constituents and I feel...

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (18 Jul 2023)

Nigel Huddleston: ...members of CPTPP, so it would be inappropriate for us to comment on any individual application. However, what I can say is that we know after two years of negotiation what an incredibly high bar exists on membership of this fantastic organisation.

Liaison Committee (17 Jul 2023)

Christopher Chope: Well, there we have it, Madam Deputy Speaker. And I see my hon. Friend the Member for Harwich and North Essex, the Chair of the Liaison Committee, at the Bar of the House. I do not know whether he intends to participate in this debate.

Online Safety Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 228 (17 Jul 2023)

Lord Allan of Hallam: ...have the test in Clause 173, which says that platforms should decide whether they have “reasonable grounds to infer” that something is illegal. In Committee, we debated changing that to a higher bar, and said that we wanted a stronger evidential basis. That did not find favour with the Government. We hoped they might raise the bar themselves unilaterally, but they have not. However, we...

Online Safety Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 219 (17 Jul 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...the phrase “special circumstances”. That is not the phraseology in the clause; it is that “circumstances exist”, and then it goes on to talk about national security and public health. The bar is very low. I am sure everyone is getting hungry at this time of day, so I will not continue. However, we still have grave doubts about this clause. It seems an extraordinary indirect form of...

Worker Protection (Amendment of Equality Act 2010) Bill - Committee (14 Jul 2023)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: .... The amendment will not change the Act’s existing statutory defence but will create a different test for the new duty on employers. That could be considered as setting a different and lower bar than “all reasonable steps”, and as such could be considered to be a watering down of provisions. The amendments proposed today will change and ultimately attenuate the provisions of the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 59 (13 Jul 2023)

Baroness Thornhill: ...the community in which they live. That is very pertinent to town and parish councillors, who really are at the sharp end: they are the closest to those whom they represent and meet them in the pub or the park or at the school gates. I believe that the laws governing the current situation reflect the attitudes of decades ago—the village do-gooder stepping up and speaking for the humble...

Backbench Business: Post Office Ltd: Management Culture — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Jul 2023)

Margaret Ferrier: ...not alone in their difficulties until many years later. In fact, between 2000 and 2013, over 700 people were prosecuted on the back of issues with Horizon. It is absolutely astonishing that no one bar the postmasters affected put the pieces together sooner or, crucially, acted on it. It is now clear that internal investigations by the Post Office meant that the issues were identified much...

Domestic Animals: Welfare - Question (13 Jul 2023)

Lord Benyon: really important and also applies to dogs. If people are buying a cat, they need to go to a registered owner and make sure that it has been microchipped, which is now the law. Buying pets in pub car parks is where the problem starts. They have to be bought through a registered owner and people need to understand that a cat is for life, not just for Christmas.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Crown Court: Standards (13 Jul 2023)

Mike Freer: ...published data is available to March 2023 and shows that timeliness estimates at the Crown Court continue to increase. This was a result of cases completing including trials impacted by the Criminal Bar Association action and in some cases, the suspension of jury trial during the pandemic. Table (xlsx, 98.2KB)
