Local Government Act 1988: Section 28 (3 Feb 2000)

Lord Whitty: a full opportunity to debate the issue in detail during the Committee stage of the Local Government Bill on Monday. Chris Woodhead was speaking personally and he was technically correct in that Section 28 does not affect schools. This and the previous Government have repeatedly pointed out that that is the case and the message may be getting across to some schools. Regrettably, however,...

Scottish Parliament: Ethical Standards in Public Life etc (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 26 — Councils' duties to children (21 Jun 2000)

Phil Gallie: That is not the case. I was careful about how I addressed the issue covered by section 25. Had I repeated arguments about section 28, I am sure that the Presiding Officer could have taken me to task for it.

Local Government Bill (3 Apr 2003)

Lord Alli: deliver improved services, on the new capital finance systems, and on the issues relating to capital receipts. Of course, I jest! Like a moth to a flame, I am drawn to the issue of the repeal of Section 28 contained in Clause 121. The last time we debated Section 28 I read out a letter from a 15 year-old boy. It said, "I am very depressed, and very alone. I used to be a perfect pupil...

Clause 5. — (Application to Persons Called Up of Army Act and Air Force Act, and Provisions as to Discipline, Pay, etc.) (1 Mar 1951)

Mr Emrys Hughes: I beg to move in page 8, line 28, after the words last left out to insert: Any person who has been convicted under this section shall, on conclusion of such sentence, he discharged from His Majesty's forces. I do not wish to repeat the argument which I used on an earlier stage of the Bill, except to say that I believe that a sentence under this section would mean discharge from His Majesty's...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Prohibition on Promotion of Homosexuality: Bullying (25 Jul 2000)

Evan Harris: I did not intervene on Conservative Members, so I shall not take interventions from them. Unless they can show such research, section 28 is founded on scientific nonsense. Secondly, section 28 does not allow for young people to be told that homosexuality is acceptable as "a pretended family relationship". That means that young people should be told that homosexuality is unacceptable and that...

Local Government Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: New Clause 11 — Repeal of Section 2A of Local Government Act 1986 (10 Mar 2003)

Kali Mountford: ...governors, which I have already outlined, will prevail. I cannot imagine how the measure would be used at all because the current system is working well. It has been established in Committee and repeated on the Floor of the House today that section 28 is obsolete. The hon. Member for Cotswold has accepted that many times in debate. If the guidance is working well now, and since hon....

EU Nationals in the Uk: Cross-examination of Vulnerable Witnesses (6 Jul 2016)

Ann Coffey: ...pre-recorded cross-examination. It would be very helpful to know a little bit more about that. Last year I visited the honorary recorder of Liverpool, who informed me that their experience of the section 28 pilot scheme has been characterised not only by vast improvements in the experiences of vulnerable and child witnesses, but by better case management, leading to shorter trials and...

Scottish Parliament: Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 198 — Removal from public place (20 Mar 2003)

Malcolm Chisholm: Amendment 708 makes provision in section 204 for patients on suspension of detention from emergency or short-term detention where that suspension of detention is subject to conditions that the patient be accompanied or return to hospital and the patient fails to comply with those conditions. Amendment 220 extends the absconding provisions contained in section 204 to cover patients who are...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (7 Feb 2000)

Lord Davies of Coity: ...children and to do nothing whatever to increase the level of risk to which they are exposed, even if that risk is small and acknowledging that there will be no effect on the vast majority whether Section 28 is in place or not. My one regret is that whereas on the question on the age of consent the Government allowed a free vote, on this issue they have not. That regret applies equally in...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Amenities Bill (25 Jan 1974)

Where a listed building is within a conservation area, any proposed development nearby would be advertised and the plans made public under Section 28. But if an application is filed which may affect a listed building which is not, I repeat not, in a conservation area, there is no legal obligation at the moment to test public opinion.

Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill (11 Apr 2000)

Lord Carter: My Lords, will the noble Baroness be kind enough to give way again? I ask the noble Baroness to withdraw that remark. I repeat, I have interviewed every single newly appointed Labour Peer. I have not asked them about their views on Section 28 or on the age of consent--I shall give way.

Government of Wales Bill (3 May 2006)

Lord Rowlands: Does this Bill repeat Section 28 of that Act in any place?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Reoffenders: Greater London (14 Mar 2017)

David Burrowes: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many adult and juvenile repeat offenders in London who have not received a non-custodial sentence since Section 28 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 came into effect have had (a) more than one previous knife conviction and (b) a previous conviction for a violent offence in addition to their previous knife crime conviction.

Orders of the Day — Clause 4: Offices of Sheriff Principal and Sheriff (19 May 1971)

Mr Norman Wylie: In effect, Amendment No. 1 re-writes the provisions of Clause 4(3), which is designed to amend the provisions of Section 28 of the Interpretation Act, 1889 by bringing it into line with the new terminology introduced by Clause 4(1) with regard to sheriffs. The 1889 Act used the traditional expressions "sheriff" and "sheriff substitute". The Bill introduces the terms "sheriff principal" and...

Learning and Skills Bill [H.L.] (17 Feb 2000)

Baroness Blatch: ...right reverend Prelate proposed to the Local Government Bill. Therefore, although I support the promotion of marriage, as stated in the amendment, it is no substitute for an argument for repeal of Section 28. The Government have made no secret of their position. They have said that irrespective of a decision in the other place, the will of Parliament or anything else, they will repeal...

Commons Amendment (24 Jul 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...No. 377. The amendment and those grouped with it deal with a situation which received substantial attention during the passage of the Bill. It relates to the provision of what used to be known as Section 28. The Government's position on Section 2A, as it now is, of the Local Government Act 1986 has been clear and consistent throughout the passage of the Bill. We consider it bad law; we...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: ...Lords, since the Education Reform Act 1988, it is for the teachers and governors to decide whether and which material should be available and which should be used as a teaching resource. I can only repeat to the noble Lord, Lord Campbell, that these matters are now entirely outside the local authority. Whether Section 28 is retained or repealed makes no difference in terms of what may be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2000)

Tony Blair: As the right hon. Gentleman knows perfectly well, and let me repeat to people, section 28 has nothing whatever to do with sex education in schools. It never has had. As I say, since 1994, it has not even applied to schools. The truth of the matter is that the campaign is based on people who do not want to come out and say that they are prejudiced against gay people. They do not...

Public Bill Committee: Electoral Administration Bill: Clause 47 - Political party description (17 Nov 2005)

Eleanor Laing: I beg to move amendment No. 64, in clause 47, page 54, line 28, leave out 'up to five'. The amendment continues with an issue first raised on clause 23 by my hon. Friend the Member for Huntingdon at Tuesday afternoon's sitting—descriptions of independent candidates. I shall not repeat the arguments made two days' ago, as the Committee properly considered the matter then. The amendment...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: New Clause 1 — Education Act 1996 (20 May 2013)

Chris Bryant: ..., because we are very short of time. I gently suggest to hon. Members that the language that is used in some of the new clauses and amendments comes far too close for the liking of many people to a repeat of section 28. That did damage and we do not want to see it again. I urge Members not to drive a coach and horses through the equality legislation, which treats everybody equally,...
