Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 33 - The community electricity right (8 Jan 2015)

Alan Whitehead: I beg to move amendment 35, in clause 33, page 37, line 9, at end insert— ““Community” shall include any elected authority responsible for the administration of any area defined for the purpose of exercising the right to buy a stake in a renewable energy facility”. I hope the Minister in particular will perceive the amendment as very helpful. If she does not see it in that way...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill (25 Jan 2011)

Councillor Jones: I am Mike Jones. I am leader of Cheshire West and Chester council, one of the new councils formed on 1 April 2009. Since our inception we have tried to do things somewhat differently, devolving decision making and resources down to as low a level as we possibly can. We have some quite interesting examples. We allocated each of our local members £5,000 to invest in their...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 Jun 2022)

Rich Bell: The creation of neighbourhood priority statements, which allow people at the local level to very clearly set out their priorities, and having those accounted for in local plans, is definitely a positive step forward, and we really welcome that. The point we would make is that community anchor organisations work in a way so as to unlock the capacity that is already present in...

Public Bill Committee: Child Poverty Bill: Clause 20 (3 Nov 2009)

Sally Keeble: I do not agree with the amendment. Guidance is important. Will my hon. Friend the Minister set out what the guidance would say? Some factors that are particularly relevant to child poverty might not always be immediately evident locally, although that might sound like a contradiction in terms. I understand the hon. Gentleman’s point, but if, for example, one sits the national statistics...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill (27 Jan 2011)

Neil Cleeveley: I am Neil Cleeveley, director of policy and communications at the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action. Our 400 or so members work with local voluntary and community organisations, offering them support and development services. Quite often, we are the arbiter of and mediator in the relationship between the local voluntary sector, and local authorities and...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 6 - Direction to offer to contract (22 Jan 2013)

Gregory Barker: It is me. We are joined at the hip; neither of us can stand up without the other moving. This is the first time that I have risen. It is a pleasure to be properly in harness in the Committee and to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bayley. I am glad to have the chance to speak on community energy, the feed-in tariff scheme and the benefits of encouraging a more distributed energy economy. I...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Duty to have regard to post-examination neighbourhood development plan (20 Oct 2016)

Jim McMahon: That is the crux of the issue. The gift of a neighbourhood plan is that it binds a local community together to agree collectively what is best for that community. The benefit of a threshold is that a bar is put in place to say, “You have to be able to demonstrate that the plan has the community support in place.” If one of the arguments is that disadvantaged communities are disfranchised...

Public Bill Committee: Small Charitable Donations Bill: Clause 6 - Charities running charitable activities in community buildings (25 Oct 2012)

Sajid Javid: Government amendments 4, 5 and 6 are intended to restrict the donations collected in respect of community buildings to those donations that are collected in the course of the charitable activities carried out in a community building. We have already debated community buildings, but it is worth repeating the policy objective behind the community building rules before I move on to explain why...

Public Bill Committee: Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill: Clause 3 - RPB: general functions (14 Jan 2003)

Tony McNulty: I think not, for the following simple reason. As I have already said, we feel that the revised PPG11 will achieve all of that and more, and leave the framework and powers in place for the Secretary of State to determine whether each RPB has sufficiently represented those interests. Community involvement at that regional level should be entirely distinct from community involvement at the coal...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: Clause 263 - Review of arrangements (25 Feb 2003)

David Heath: It occurs to me that if the intention is to provide not only an input into the process but a reassurance to the community, we should recognise that there is a great difference between, for instance, the Greater Manchester police and the City of London police, in terms of work loads and the communities that the advisers will represent. There are huge geographical areas and different...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: Schedule 21 - Amendments relating to sentencing (13 Feb 2003)

Hilary Benn: The amendments concern the Criminal Justice Act 1982. Section 32 of that Act provides for the executive release of prisoners. It enables the Secretary of State to order that certain prisoners can be released early, but not earlier than the specified period. Certain categories of prisoner are excluded from this provision, such as those serving imprisonment for life and those who have committed...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 May 2021)

Phil Bowen: I agree with a lot of that. The only thing I would add is that proposals are set out in the White Paper that are being taken forward by the Ministry that seek to strengthen the community justice parts of the system. They include things such as investing in early intervention and prevention, including the improvements to the out-of-court disposals regime, which I think is vital...

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill [Lords]: Traffic commissioner functions (14 Mar 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: I beg to move amendment 30, in clause 14, page 69, line 22, at end insert— “(5) After section 6I insert— ‘6J Community bus routes (1) Traffic Commissioners must keep a list of bus routes in their area which are of community value. (2) For the purpose of this section, a bus route of community value is one that has been designated by the traffic commissioner as furthering the...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Changes to neighbourhood areas etc (20 Oct 2016)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I am not aware of any. We are trying to ensure that the provisions in this legislation will not lead to neighbourhood areas that are very, very small indeed. Of course the Minister will say, “Well, it’s up to the local authority to decide whether it is an appropriate area,” but the authority might come under particular pressure to agree a specific area or think it is in its interest to...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Schedule 1 - Constitution of public benefit corporations (15 May 2003)

Hazel Blears: I am not only disappointed but shocked at the hon. Gentleman's lack of ambition for the community that he is in purportedly in Parliament to represent. He seems to think that the idea that people in that community will bother to go out and vote is impossible. I do not know what kind of community he lives in, but in my community a range of people are beginning to be involved in running things....

Public Bill Committee: Courts Bill [Lords]: Clause 36 - Fines officers (10 Jul 2003)

David Heath: The Minister shakes his head. I was hoping that he would nod. It is silly to have two separate arrangements for administering work in the community as a penalty. I hear what the hon. Member for Surrey Heath said about the school in his constituency. However, a school in my constituency was delighted with the work done by people on a community service order and I do not understand why more of...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 86 - Giving a community caution (10 Jun 2021)

Alex Cunningham: My colleague is right to raise the issue of disproportionality in the system. Anything that increases that is not good for us as a country and is certainly not good for the young people involved. It is important that the Government bear that in mind as they bring the measure forward. More importantly, as I said, the Government can get into a situation where they recognise that...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Examination of Witnesses (10 Nov 2015)

Sue Chalkley: If it was a simple system to administer, we think that pay-to-stay might help to offset some of the rent reductions that we are facing. However, there are rural considerations with this initiative as well, in that many of the schemes that we have built for rural communities have been built with an undertaking that we will hold them as affordable housing in perpetuity. This...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill: Clause 113 - Powers of designated and accredited persons (18 Jan 2005)

Hazel Blears: I will come to evaluation, monitoring and analysis of CSOs' role in due course. I was about to say this Government are committed to recruiting an extra 20,000 community support officers over the next three years. They will become an established part of the policing scene. In the two years they have been patrolling our streets, CSOs have really proven the success of the extended police family...
