All 6 results for keir starmer speaker:Simon Hoare

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Simon Hoare: ...in carrying out its duties”. That can be seen as a contempt of Parliament. That is an incredibly high bar and I do not believe that the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) has made his case before the House this afternoon. Mr Speaker, you and I love this place, but there is nothing more humorous than the synthetic confection of outrage, umbrage and...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Simon Hoare: Does my right hon. Friend share my disquiet about some of the sincerity expressed by the right hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer)? The letter that he produced in support of the motion was signed and sealed on Thursday. They clearly had no interest in what the Attorney General had to say on Monday.

Investigatory Powers Bill: Civil liability for certain unlawful interceptions (1 Nov 2016)

Simon Hoare: The hon. Lady is new to her position, as is the Minister. I served on the Bill Committee and she is right to point to the work that the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) did to build cross-party consensus on what could have been a difficult Bill to land. If the Lords amendments are ultimately rejected by this place and the other place caves in, will the...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Bulk interception warrants (7 Jun 2016)

Simon Hoare: ...pray in aid Kipling in order to summarise. I was not intending to speak on this grouping until I heard the cases deployed by the SNP and by the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer). On the latter point, I concur and support what he said entirely, but the approach of the SNP, which we have heard since Second Reading—it was certainly a golden thread running...

Investigatory Powers Bill: General duties in relation to privacy (6 Jun 2016)

Simon Hoare: ...the approach that Members on the Treasury Bench and the Opposition Front Bench took in Committee. The words, tone, tenor and approach of the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) are to be welcomed. I always contended that the rights and the importance of the privacy of our constituents were an unspoken golden thread running through the Bill. Through new clause...

Consumer Protection (Standards of Fire Resistance of Children’s Fancy Dress and Play Costumes Etc): New Clause 16 — Compensation for an illegal working closure notice where order is cancelled/ no compliance order is made (1 Dec 2015)

Simon Hoare: As somebody who served with the hon. and learned Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Keir Starmer) and others on the Bill Committee, there is a terrible sense of déjà vu, to put it politely, or “Groundhog Day”, not so politely, about this debate. We had a lot of these debates and discussions in Committee. I hope that those who did not join me in voting as I did in Committee would at...
