Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: New Clause 49 - Disclosure of international agreements for prevention of unlawful border crossings (4 Nov 2021)

Jonathan Gullis: I reiterate that, having gone down to Dover to meet the Kent intake unit in Dover docks, having met in the joint control room with deputy director Dave Butler of the clandestine threat command, and having been to Tug Haven and western Jetfoil on a cross-party parliamentary visit, it was fantastic to learn and understand. I share concerns expressed by the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate...

Public Bill Committee: Rating (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill: Examination of Witness (6 Jul 2021)

Stephen Pegge: Yes. This is an important Bill, and one that certainly has the support of many in the business community, including lenders. I know that the consultation had widespread support. It does appear that closing this loophole should be beneficial in terms of the enforcement of good practice, the prevention of abuse and a certain degree of deterrence of the misuse of an important and...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Arrangements for remaining in a residential children’s home after reaching adulthood (10 Jan 2017)

Edward Timpson: The hon. Lady will be pleased to know that we have been working very closely with the Every Child Leaving Care Matters team, so that it is able to positively contribute to the work and look at the different models that we need to test out through the piloting of Staying Close. In that way, the needs of each individual young person can be met by the range of models available. Some of the...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: SDLT: higher rates for additional dwellings etc (7 Jul 2016)

David Gauke: The hon. Lady made a number of points about housing that we could spend a long time debating. I will try to resist that temptation, but let me make one point: in the previous Parliament, more council homes were built than in the whole period of the previous two Labour Governments. We are committed to delivering a large number of affordable homes. Annual housing starts are at an eight-year...

Public Bill Committee: Homes Bill: Clause 25 - Abolition of duty to maintain housing register (30 Jan 2001)

Nigel Waterson: I shall be brief. I do not think that the hon. Member for Bath could be accused of taking short cuts in his speech. He usefully dealt with the points from the Shelter briefing, and, no doubt, one or two others. We share some of his concerns and our starred amendments Nos. 103 and 104 have a similar thrust to some of his proposals. It is a matter of principle that, whatever detailed system is...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 94 - Permanent establishments and ''25% associates'' (20 May 2004)

John Healey: As the hon. Gentleman says, clause 94 is part of the package of clauses 92 to 101. Together, they implement a European directive into UK law. They provide an exemption from UK tax for companies in other member states when a related company in the UK pays them interest or royalties. When the directive is fully implemented by all member states, it will ensure that tax is levied on those...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Jun 2013)

Gavin Grant: Thank you for that and for the opportunity to give evidence. I suspect that I may be the only person in the room—slightly surprisingly—who was present in the Home Office as the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 was being drafted, when I was employed by the RSPCA in a previous guise. I echo Clarissa’s point, but as we are addressing the specifics of the Bill, my first observation is...

Public Bill Committee: Charities Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 (4 Jul 2006)

Ed Miliband: That is correct to an extent. I do not think that my right hon. Friend was in his place when I said it, but is important to restate the point that purposes under clause 2(2) can be for the public benefit but are not necessarily so. The public benefit test is applied by specifically examining the individual charity and seeing whether it benefits a sufficient section of the public. To...

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: Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill: New clause 5 - Equality Duty (14 Feb 2002)

Des Browne: The new clause would amend the Northern Ireland Act 1998, designating the listed organisations for the purposes of sections 75 and 76. Section 75 creates a duty on public authorities to have due regard to the promotion of equality of opportunity between each of the nine categories of person. I thank the hon. Member for Montgomeryshire (Lembit Öpik) for listing them. Section 76 makes it...

Public Bill Committee: Drugs Bill: Clause 11 - Requirements under sections 9 and 10: supplemental (3 Feb 2005)

Caroline Flint: The notice should be given in writing before the person leaves detention. It is not only about people being charged; it is also about people who have been arrested. In the guidance, we will emphasise the need to schedule the assessment at a time that will not lead to a charge. It is important to have such a provision. My hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley, West and Penistone spoke about...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 154 (24 Jan 2008)

Stephen O'Brien: Just in case anyone was getting excited about us galloping away, and if my hon. Friend the Member for Guildford thought she was being pedantic, well here we go. The important point to note is that the clause deals with repeals which are listed in schedule 15. Some 15 Acts passed by the Government over the last nine years will be repealed or amended. They include the Health Act 1999, the Care...

Public Bill Committee: Savings (Government Contributions) Bill: Examination of Witness (25 Oct 2016)

Calum Bennie: When you introduce a product or investment that has clear advantages, as this one does, it will attract people to save. We have got quite a long experience of incentivised investment products for all sections of the community. In particular, our focus is on those with low to modest incomes. As a company with roots as a friendly society, for the last 30 years we have focused,...

Public Bill Committee: London Olympics Bill: Schedule 2 - Olympic symbol protection (18 Oct 2005)

Don Foster: I wish to echo the hon. Lady’s words. Although we are grateful for the amendments to paragraph 4—they give greater clarification of the Government’s intention—there is still a concern among many people that the commitment that the Government made at the time of the bid and the commitment that has been given subsequently that everyone in the country would benefit from the Olympic games...

Public Bill Committee: London Olympics Bill: Clause 4 - General functions (13 Oct 2005)

Lyn Brown: The residents of my borough in which the stadium and the park will sit are tremendously excited by the games, not only because of the event itself with the enthusiasm and the energy that it will bring to the area, but because of the way in which the games will change their lives and, hopefully, the lives of their children for the better. Will the Minister consider whether the Bill properly...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: Clause 33 - Children and young people with EHC plans (21 Mar 2013)

Sharon Hodgson: I agree to a certain extent. If the hon. Gentleman is looking for definitions, he should be asking the Minister and his team. Perhaps the time is right to try to come up with a definition of inclusion. We probably all know what it means in the broader sense of the word. The inclusion lobby is clear what it means when it talks about inclusion and how it is about not only schools, but the whole...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Digital services tax: introduction (11 Jun 2020)

Bridget Phillipson: It a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Rosindell. Like the Minister, I will use this opportunity to lay out our broad views and concerns about the operation of the digital services tax. We will pick up some of the technical issues with the clauses as they emerge later. We welcome the principle behind the introduction of a digital services tax. It is regrettable, if not unsurprising, that...

Public Bill Committee: Communications Bill: Clause 75 - Market power determinations (17 Dec 2002)

Stephen Timms: Let me comment on the specific terms of the amendment moved by the hon. Member for Blaby (Mr. Robathan). First, however, I apologise to you, Mr. Atkinson, and to the Committee for my late arrival. I am pleased to find you looking after the Committee. There are a number of examples, rather like the one given by the hon. Gentleman, of the words in a Bill being not quite the same as those in a...

Public Bill Committee: Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 24 - Definition (15 Jan 2002)

Bill Cash: Basically, it is highly desirable, if not essential, for all of the structure of common areas to be maintained and insured by the commonhold association. The existing provisions make the residual parts of the structure, which are not maintained or insured by the unit owner, the responsibility of the commonhold association. We believe that that would put too much responsibility on the unit...

Public Bill Committee: Social Security Contributions: New Clause 5 - Proceedings under Financial Servicesand Markets Act 2000 (30 Jan 2001)

Stephen Timms: I believe that the hon. Gentleman's fears are wholly unfounded. As he said himself, any number of considerations could underlie the decision whether to take the route that is offered by the Bill. He, or any other person, would be ill-advised to conclude that directors will take that decision for one specific reason over any one of the range that might apply. Because they can consider such a...
