Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 16 - Requirement of Registration forRegistration Plate Suppliers (9 Jan 2001)

John Bercow: That is a possibility and helps me. I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. I was speculating aloud on the possibility of requiring named individuals and had highlighted the possible objection that a named individual in the course of his or her career would move from one company to another. However, for two reasons, that would not necessarily pose a problem . The first is the analogy that the...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 18 - Applications for registration. (9 Jan 2001)

John Bercow: The Under-Secretary chunters ``rather good''. I can only assume that he is not making a self-reference, for no man should be judging his own cause, but generously and gratuitously volunteering praise for my instinctive response on that occasion. The Government's record is not good. Under Labour, the average family is paying out about £670 a year more in tax, as I said. Much of that rise...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 20 - Cancellation of registration by the Secretary of State (9 Jan 2001)

Mr David Chidgey: Members of the Committee may have noticed that I tabled amendments that were not selected, calling for the clause and the following relevant clauses to be deleted. I did so because I felt that we needed an explanation of why it should be necessary for a company trading in the supply of plates to be deregistered if it ceases to trade. I am at a loss to understand how this exercise is different...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 25 - Rights to enter and inspect premises (11 Jan 2001)

Keith Hill: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her intervention. I remember well her saying on Second Reading that an impressive degree of community partnership with the police has driven down crime levels in Plymouth, and I commend the Plymouth experience to the Committee. She is right to say that the Bill will drive down vehicle crime levels and free up police resources for other purposes. However, in...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 3 - Applications for Registration andRenewal of Registration (16 Jan 2001)

John Bercow: Indeed. My bitten hon. Friend—he was bitten in the far east, and further and better particulars are still not fully available—[Interruption.] He is now saying that he was bitten in Australia. I did not know that. Originally, we received other information on the matter. Nevertheless, my hon. Friend the Member for Lichfield was indisposed and not available to attend the debate or hear the...

Public Bill Committee: Homes Bill: Clause 3 - Duties of responsible person where a property is on the market (18 Jan 2001)

Tom Brake: I welcome you to the Chair, Mr. Gale. I support the Conservative amendments. In relation to amendment No. 35, I was going to spin a detailed story about a sole estate agent on holiday abroad who goes to the beach, where he meets the trading standards officer to whom reference has been made, who recognises the local estate agent, approaches him and asks to see all the seller's packs for the...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: Clause 37 - Funding of certain magistrates' courts' costsrelating to vehicle crime (18 Jan 2001)

Charles Clarke: My hon. Friend is right. As always in such matters, we are trying to make money work to benefit the community as a whole. That is what is involved here. By raising a revenue chain from income that goes back into improved road safety arrangements—such as camera systems—we hope to establish a virtuous circle of continual improvement of enforcement of the legislation, based on the...

(18 Jan 2001)

George Young: I beg to move amendment No. 2, in page 1, line 15, leave out `(in whatever way he thinks appropriate)'. It is good to see you in the Chair, Mr. Maxton. Any propensity to misbehave disappeared the moment that I knew that you would be chairing the Committee. Amendment No. 2 is a probing amendment; this debate should follow on well from the previous debate. The amendment would remove from the...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 6 - Extent (23 Jan 2001)

Alun Michael: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak briefly on the cross-border issue in relation to Wales. The matter is especially significant in Scotland because it has its own legal system. However, that has always been so, and I am sure that any problems can be dealt with under the devolution settlement. The situation in Wales is different. We have a long, porous border, which applies in various...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 16 - Intervention orders (23 Jan 2001)

Paul Burstow: I shall make two points in response to the hon. Gentleman. The first is technical. The amendments do not deal only with the intervention powers under clause 16. The group under consideration includes new clause 4, which provides a definition, and amendments to other clauses. For example, clause 7 deals with other aspects of the implementation of the measure. On the basis of the growing...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with Dogs: Prohibition (23 Jan 2001)

David Lidington: One great evil that the Bill, if enacted, will bring about is that it will criminalise the activities of many thousands of people who regard themselves as—and who in fact are—law abiding. Indeed, in many communities such people are the active eyes and ears of the police service. Many serve as magistrates and give of their time by taking part in neighbourhood watch schemes and other crime...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 2 - Payments relating to past performance (23 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I beg to move amendment No. 40, in page 3, line 5, at end insert— `(c) Subject to paragraph 5A(2) of Schedule 3 to the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990, payments may be made to improve unsatisfactory performance against those criteria set out in paragraph (b) above'. We had an interesting debate on the first group of amendments to clause 2, during which the Minister...

Public Bill Committee: Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill: Clause 2 - Principal aim of the Commissioner (23 Jan 2001)

Nigel Evans: I fully appreciate that language difficulties arise with children, irrespective of their first language. For a child going anywhere in England, and even for a child going to a hospital in Wales, there could be a problem in finding staff in the appropriate speciality who could converse with the child in Welsh. We need a more understanding approach. We discussed the children of asylum seekers...

Public Bill Committee: Homes Bill: Clause 8 - Home condition reports (23 Jan 2001)

Mr Gareth Thomas: The hon. Member for Eastbourne (Mr. Waterson) has for once, with the greatest respect to him, done us a service by probing the important issue of privity of contract, in which I take an interest. I want to take a few minutes to explore the subject, in the expectation that my hon. Friend the Minister will elucidate matters a little. As a lawyer, I have had experience of dealing with what we...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 2 - Payments relating to past performance (23 Jan 2001)

Paul Burstow: The Minister's example of the immunisation programme is quite unfortunate as it took me the best part of two months to get a written answer about the extent to which that programme was successful. That reflects the concern of the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge about getting information into the public domain at the earliest opportunity. Would the Minister consider ensuring...

Public Bill Committee: Vehicles (Crime) Bill: New Clause 9 - Revenue (23 Jan 2001)

Jonathan R Shaw: The problem is that the system was designed many years ago and does not meet today's needs. There are inherent structural problems. My local authority and I discussed the matter with the DVLA, the Home Office and the Department of Trade and Industry, but we went round in circles. We would not set up today the system that we have. Euro-sceptic Opposition Members might find uncomfortable the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 4 - Public-private partnerships (23 Jan 2001)

Desmond Swayne: It is a great pleasure and honour to follow my right hon. Friend and quite proper to have given way to his rank. I shall not repeat any questions that he asked more eloquently and intelligently than I could, but ask one additional question. Insofar as the clause enables the Secretary of State to be a participant in the formation of companies, how will it be affected by EU purchasing and...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with Dogs: Prohibition (23 Jan 2001)

David Lidington: One argument was that the schedule's definition of offences is precise and that the concerns that I and other Opposition Members expressed about its imprecision were therefore misplaced. We will be able to argue about that in due course, but the definition in paragraph 21, in particular, is far from comprehensive. In any case, to judge by my experience at the Home Office under previous...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 21 - out of hours medical services (25 Jan 2001)

John Denham: It is a consistent part of the walk-in centre programme to develop and improve those links. That relates to the electronic patient record, which the hon. Member for New Forest, West mentioned. Paragraph 4.21 of the NHS plan states that there should be access to electronic personal medical records for patients by 2004. By that time, we expect that 75 per cent. of hospitals and 50 per cent....

Public Bill Committee: Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill: Clause 3 - Review of exercise of functions of Assembly and other persons (25 Jan 2001)

Nigel Evans: I fully accept that. I will not go down that route, but if we recall the differences between devolved and undevolved areas with eating beef on the bone, at certain stages we could find ourselves with different laws all over the place and that would be difficult. The Children's Commissioner might find it enormously difficult. The children's rights director in England and the Children's...
