Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (1st Day) (17 Jun 2013)

Lord Alli: ...or subject to the Equality Act. Robust provisions in the Bill and that Act already give such protections. Indeed, the Minister made this clear at Second Reading and, if she does not mind, I shall repeat her words. She said: “It is lawful to express a belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and it is lawful to do that whether at work or outside work. That is a belief...

Children and Families Bill: New Clause 9 — Transfer of EHC plans (11 Jun 2013)

Edward Timpson: ...developed some important skills in a number of innovative ways. I agree that online communities have their dangers, and that young people should be equipped to socialise over the internet safely. I repeat the commitment I gave in Committee: I will consider including a reference to online communities in the code, in the context of preparing for adulthood. I do not believe it is necessary to...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) (5 Jun 2013)

Lord McNally: ...of the magistracy, that emphasis has been made. The Government share the frustration of the magistracy. They seem to be almost forced into successive custodial terms because of the cycle of repeat offending. That is exactly why we have brought forward the Bill. It is why Clause 1 extends release on licence and why Clause 2 tops up that licence with additional supervision. The Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Justice and Criminal Justice Act 1999 (21 May 2013)

Ann Coffey: I thank the Minister for his response. One victim of child sexual exploitation was aggressively cross-examined by seven barristers for three weeks in the Telford trial. Another was repeatedly called a liar until she broke down. Justice is not served by bullying vulnerable witnesses already scarred by their experiences. When does the Minister expect to be able to report further on the...

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,...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: New Clause 59 - Arrangements to support child witnesses (25 Apr 2013)

Lisa Nandy: ...is that although we could spare many more children this ordeal, we do not. There are a number of ways open to us, and that is what the clause is designed to address. The first is by enacting section 28 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 to allow children’s evidence to be obtained out of court and in advance of a trial. A great deal of work has been done to try to...

Jobseekers (Back to Work Schemes) Bill — Second Reading (21 Mar 2013)

Lord Pannick: ...your Lordships the facts. The Court of Appeal refused the Secretary of State's application for permission to appeal on 12 February-the date of the substantive judgment. The Secretary of State has 28 days to apply to the Supreme Court for permission to appeal. When did he make his application? He made it 28 days later on 12 March, last Tuesday-the day of the deadline. The form that a...

Succession to the Crown Bill: Report (13 Mar 2013)

Lord Elton: ...Doubt is thrown on it by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008. We have discussed that in Committee but there are rather more noble Lords here than there were on that day, so it is worth repeating that Section 48(7) of the HFEA 2008 recites what is not to be altered or touched by what is in that Act. The two things caught out are titles and other honours. To the lay mind, that...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 Mar 2013)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: ...law is that the burden of proof remains, as it has always done, on the claimant to make out a prima facie case before the burden shifts to the employer or service provider. The Explanatory Notes to Section 136 of the Equality Act 2010 explain that, "the burden of proving his or her case starts with the claimant. Once the claimant has established sufficient facts, which in the absence of...

City of London (Various Powers) Bill [Lords] (26 Feb 2013)

Philip Davies: ...point very well during his speech and I do not want to reiterate his point, but he is absolutely right. Remaining on the subject of the return of seized items, I have some minor worries about this section. Proposed new section 16B(8)(a) states: “if no proceedings have been instituted before the expiry of 28 days beginning with the date of seizure”. As my hon. Friend the Member for...

Succession to the Crown Bill — Second Reading (14 Feb 2013)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...should say what would happen to the Government's plans if several states-or even one of them-that have to legislate, fail to do so successfully? I appreciate that the agreed retrospection to 28 October 2011 removes the most urgent time pressures but it would be unfortunate if changes that we agree upon here are effectively negatived by what happens in other realms. I understand, for...

Science, Technology and Engineering (Careers Information in Schools): Police (13 Feb 2013)

Julian Huppert: ...goes from Government to the police and do not take account of the amount generated locally, so the actual effects are rather smaller than that. Disappointingly, what he did not do was to answer my repeated question about where he would get the money from. If I had an extra spare billion quid, I, too, would love to spend it on a range of things. We could have a fascinating debate about how...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (4 Feb 2013)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: ...respond to the Minister's generous offer to convene a meeting with the Canal & River Trust. I am delighted to accept, as, I am sure, the trust will be; I look forward to the meeting. I shall not repeat the arguments that I put forward regarding Clause 22 but seek simply to state that what the Government propose in Clause 23 goes further than what the two chairmen-the Chairman of Ways and...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 3 - Designation of a CFD counterparty (22 Jan 2013)

Tom Greatrex: ...cost of capital benefit is not there.” When the Minister referred to the change of course in response to pre-legislative scrutiny, I am sure that that was the point made loudly, clearly and repeatedly to him, to his predecessor and to his Department by industry as well as by the Select Committee. I note that the Minister is looking at the Select Committee report as we speak. He will note...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Report (4th Day) (12 Dec 2012)

Lord Dear: ...curb what I believe is an increasing misuse of the criminal law so as to curb or prevent the proper exercise of free speech. The amendment intends that the word "insulting" should be taken out of Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 and that Section 6 of that Act should be similarly amended to take account of the earlier change. It might help your Lordships if I examine the history of...

Equal Marriage Consultation (11 Dec 2012)

Yvette Cooper: ...granted even by those who opposed them at the start: an equal age of consent, ending the ban on serving in the armed forces, ending discrimination in adoption and fertility treatment and abolishing section 28. Year after year, we changed the law and argued for the justice and common sense of each of those changes, and opponents were proved wrong—the sky did not fall in. This is the next...

Financial Services Bill — Report (5th Day) (28 Nov 2012)

Lord Whitty: ...friend Lord Kennedy of Southwark. The purpose of the amendment is to enable the Office for Legal Complaints, that is to say the Legal Ombudsman, to receive payments from the Lord Chancellor under Section 172 of that Act for its costs in relation to handling complaints against those claims management companies. There has been a pretty widespread air of complaint in this House and in wider...

Mental Health (Approval Functions) Bill: Second Reading and Remaining Stages (31 Oct 2012)

Earl Howe: ...that the people who think they are approved actually are and do not need to undergo any validation or further approvals. The answer to that is yes, if she is referring to approved clinicians or Section 12-approved doctors, which I believe she is. She asked about the lessons to be learnt from 1 April next year once strategic health authorities cease to exist and how the preparations for...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: LIBOR (Wheatley Review) (17 Oct 2012)

Greg Clark: At the end of June it was revealed that LIBOR—the London interbank offered rate, the benchmark used in trillions of pounds worth of financial contracts—had been subject to repeated attempts at manipulation. The attempted manipulation of LIBOR is totally unacceptable and has further undermined trust in the financial services industry—without which this vital sector cannot operate....

Financial Services Bill: Committee (7th Day) (15 Oct 2012)

Lord Sassoon: ..., Amendments 183A and 187A, seek to reverse a very specific change that the Bill makes to FiSMA, namely shortening the period for making representations after a warning notice has been issued from 28 to 14 days. We made this change in close consultation with the regulator, which noted that in many cases the 28-day window is not required at all. This may be because a case is straightforward...
