Orders of the Day — Violent Crime Reduction Bill (20 Jun 2005)

Dawn Butler: I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the Second Reading of this important Bill. The Opposition asked whether the Bill was necessary. Yes, it is necessary.

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Dawn Butler: Is the hon. Lady suggesting that local people will not be trained and able to do the construction work and that we should spread the net wider? Surely part of the Olympic legacy should be that we ensure that local people are trained in construction and able to take well-paid jobs.

Orders of the Day — London Olympics Bill (21 Jul 2005)

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill (20 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: My hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr. Jones) outlined some of what I wanted to say. If a person over the age of 25 who consumed a bottle of gin and went on to cause antisocial behaviour, an antisocial behaviour order or a drinking banning order would probably be imposed. The blame would not be laid on the off-licence that sold the alcohol; it would be laid on the individual who...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 25 - Penalties etc. for offence under s.24 (20 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: The removal of subsections (4) to (8) would contradict the hon. Lady’s suggestion that the period should be increased from four to 10 years, making the sentence for carrying knives tougher. We should consider a tougher sentence for those carrying firearms. As the Minister previously explained, gun crime has reduced since the Government introduced a minimum five-year sentence. In my...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 25 - Penalties etc. for offence under s.24 (20 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: Again, I must stress that that would make the Bill far more woolly, which I know that the Liberal Democrats are not used to being. The hon. Lady’s changes would make a gaping hole in the Bill, when we should be strengthening it. The hon. Member for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross stated previously that the five-year minimum sentence made him think twice about leaving a loaded gun in...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 25 - Penalties etc. for offence under s.24 (20 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: I have no sympathy with the hon. Gentleman’s argument. My constituency has a firearms-related incident every 17 days. The five-year minimum sentence has been working—there has been a reduction in gun crime—and the Bill addresses some of the anomalies that have come from it. We should build on the good work that the Labour Government have done in introducing the Bill. Rather than  ...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 30 - Manufacture, import and sale of realistic imitation firearms (25 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: I must stress that the purpose of the Bill is to curb the manufacture, import and sale of realistic imitation firearms, not toys. Although the Opposition talk about shooting on their estates, we are trying to curb the shootings that we see on our estates in the inner cities. When someone is faced with someone holding a gun to their head, and it looks real, they do not think about whether it...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 34 - Sale etc. of knives and other weapons (25 Oct 2005)

Orders of the Day — Terrorism Bill (26 Oct 2005)

Dawn Butler: On stop and search, does my right hon. Friend agree that there are serious concerns about the additional powers that have been offered to the Metropolitan police, and that they need additional training? We must ensure that they are given additional training because any abuse of those powers will cause a further deterioration in race relations in this country?
