Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 45 - Offence of assaulting etc. retail worker (24 Jun 2021)

Chris Philp: I think the sentencing guidelines are important. Addressing coughing, spitting and causing fear of infectious disease transmission is important, as is the recognition that public sector workers and people providing a service to the public get in the sentencing guidelines. The shadow Minister says that they are not important; I think they are, because they are what the judge looks at, day in,...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 16 - Threshold for imposing discretionary custodial sentence (22 Jun 2021)

Chris Philp: Broadly speaking, the Government are keen to see alternatives to short custodial sentences. That is why we have been forward in promoting alternatives, such as community sentence treatment requirements to ensure that people get mental health, drug or alcohol addiction treatment as an alternative to short custodial sentences. As the Lord Chancellor has said, however—the shadow Minister also...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 139 - Serious violence reduction orders (17 Jun 2021)

Sarah Jones: Stop-and-search is an important tool; I would not argue with that. The key is to make sure that it is used effectively, in conjunction with good local intelligence about where crimes may have been committed. In some of our black communities in London, and some of those I visited in Glasgow, and in certain estates or postcodes, people are experiencing the same overuse of stop-and-search. Where...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 137 - Temporary release from secure children’s homes (15 Jun 2021)

Chris Philp: With that thought in mind, I will try to deal with the important points raised as quickly as I can. We recognise that young people in detained accommodation or in custodial settings need a lot of support. Secure schools are being developed to do precisely this. To support this, we think it is important that secure schools are provided by people who have a certain level of autonomy. Many...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 131 - Youth Remand (15 Jun 2021)

Chris Philp: I think that the shadow Minister also pointed out to the Committee that there is a 24-hour time limit on police remand for children, so it is an extremely short period of time. For that very short window before the court appearance, it ensures that the police do not lose control of the person in their care. Clearly, if that was going on for days or weeks, it would be a matter of concern, but...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 108 - Power to refer high-risk offenders to Parole Board in place of automatic release (15 Jun 2021)

Alex Cunningham: The Lord Chancellor is the beneficiary, because he is given a new power to change things and refer. The effect of the clause is that, for the first time for these types of prisoners, the Lord Chancellor will have the power effectively to refer a prisoner to have their sentence conditions varied, should the Parole Board agree. We all understand that. For example, if a prisoner is sentenced to...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 54 - Imposing conditions on public processions (8 Jun 2021)

In his evidence, Chief Constable Harrington said words to this effect—my apologies to Hansard: “We asked for consistency between processions and assembly, which this Bill does.” The police will impose those conditions only where they are necessary and proportionate, complying with their obligations under the Human Rights Act 1998. In fairness, Chief Constable Harrington set out the care...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 23 - Duty to arrange a review (27 May 2021)

Victoria Atkins: It continues to be a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I am very grateful to the hon. Member for Croydon Central for setting out some of the background to these clauses. Through the clauses relating to offensive weapons homicide reviews, we want to tackle the growing proportion of homicides that involve offensive weapons, for all the reasons that one can imagine: for...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (25 May 2021)

Sarah Jones: I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his political jibe. He is correct to say there are examples of bad housing in Croydon, as there are in other parts of the country. It has a massively serious effect on people’s lives. [Interruption.] I can hear the hon. Member for Croydon South muttering about it from a sedentary position. I will move on to the issue that we are talking about. When...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 1 - Police covenant report (25 May 2021)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairman- ship, Sir Charles. As we are debating amendments 2, 77 and 76, clause 1 stand part and new clause 44, I will speak to all the issues in the round. I will start by thanking Sarah Thatcher and Huw Yardley from the Public Bill Office, who have given so much guidance to us all in preparation for the Committee. We start this debate at the end of a...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witness (20 May 2021)

Hazel Williamson: In terms of how we administer any community order, we work together with children and their families, or their corporate parent if they are a child in our care. We develop a holistic package that includes health. There is no doubt that health across England is patchy, in terms of provision for youth offending teams. However, health is a statutory member of all youth...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of witness (18 May 2021)

Stephanie Roberts-Bibby: We really support the proposals and changes to remand. I will start with that point, if that is okay. We welcome the proposal that there be a statutory duty for the court to consider the child’s welfare and best interests when applying the prospect of custody test. We know that at the moment only a third of children in custody on remand go on to get a custodial...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill (18 May 2021)

Victoria Atkins: I beg to move, That— (1) the Committee shall (in addition to its first meeting at 9.25 am on Tuesday 18 May) meet— (a) at 2.00 pm on Tuesday 18 May; (b) at 11.30 am and 2.00 pm on Thursday 20 May; (c) at 9.25 am and 2.00 pm on Tuesday 25 May; (d) at 11.30 am and 2.00 pm on Thursday 27 May; (e) at 9.25 am and 2.00 pm on Tuesday 8 June; (f) at 11.30 am and 2.00 pm on Thursday 10 June; (g)...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 8 - Terms and Conditions of Service (31 Mar 2021)

Stephen Morgan: New clause 10, taken together with amendments 3 to 6, is designed to ensure that the Government fulfil their commitment to fully enshrine the armed forces covenant into law, and that it is delivered to all service personnel, veterans and their families. As I previously noted on amendments 3 to 6, the Bill as drafted attempts to absolve central Government of the responsibility to deliver the...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 7 - Welfare of Operation Banner veterans (31 Mar 2021)

Johnny Mercer: I will address new clauses 7 and 15 together. I enjoyed the contributions. There are some serious points here about the recognition of veterans—particularly our Northern Ireland veterans—which I have worked very hard on over the last couple of years. There is no tiered system of veterans. We are as proud of our Northern Ireland veterans as we are of those who served in Iraq and...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 6 - Duty of care for alcohol, drugs and gambling disorders (31 Mar 2021)

Dan Carden: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This new clause would place a duty of care on the Ministry of Defence in relation to finding a pathway to treatment for people suffering with addiction. We are familiar with the existing narrative that many of our armed forces community will, at some stage, struggle with their mental health. While there is agreement that we must prioritise...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 3 - Report on health and education outcomes (25 Mar 2021)

Johnny Mercer: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West and her dogged support for these issues. The problem that the Government have with new clause 12 is the fact that this stuff is already covered in the annual covenant report, as required by the Armed Forces Act 2006. On the issue of waiting time targets and resource plans, I refer hon. Members to the armed forces covenant...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 1 - Age of Recruitment (25 Mar 2021)

Kevan Jones: I understand that there are individuals who wish to support a ban on those under 18 joining the Army. I know that that has been campaigned on for quite a while now. Those individuals draw an analogy between what the Army does and the situation of child soldiers around the world. I do not agree with that, and I must say I do not agree with the provisions of the new clause. It is quite clear...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: Clause 8 - Armed forces covenant (25 Mar 2021)

Kevan Jones: I rise to support the amendments and to say to the Minister that he has read his civil service brief well—if he could do it a bit more slowly, we might be able to follow it. I do not think he addressed any of the points in the amendments. Again, like a lot of things that the Government do, the spin and presentation is very different from what will actually be put into practice. We should...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 23 - Meaning of “assessment period” (8 Dec 2020)

Nadhim Zahawi: I absolutely hear what the hon. Gentleman says. The issue then becomes one of national security. As we heard in the evidence sessions, most founders and directors know exactly what they are inventing and what their intellectual property is, and therefore whether there is a national security risk, however nascent the business may be. I briefly turn to amendment 22. I am grateful for the...
