Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement (16 Jun 2020)

Kate Green: I support the sentiments expressed by the hon. Members for Argyle and Bute and for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East. There have been considerable benefits to our faith communities from their ability to take advantage of freedom of movement and welcome EEA nationals into their communities. Faith communities, especially Churches of all denominations, have congregations with many EEA...

Public Bill Committee: Dormant Assets Bill [Lords]: Clause 29 - Distribution of dormant assets money for meeting English expenditure (11 Jan 2022)

Nigel Huddleston: I acknowledge the support expressed by many in the House for using the English portion of dormant assets funding to support, through community wealth funds, the left-behind communities, which experience high levels of deprivation and low levels of social infrastructure. Amendment 1 is not intended to disregard the support for that approach; instead, it is designed to protect the integrity of...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Regeneration Bill: Clause 42 (17 Jan 2008)

Robert Syms: Over recent years, we have seen the importance of involving communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, on many of the larger estates. I am thinking of places such as Castle Vale in Birmingham, where major schemes have involved tenants and communities. Does the Minister envisage that an element of the measure could be to help train community members to be advocates for their...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: Schedule 9 (17 Feb 2011)

David Ward: It is the Dog and Gun in my constituency. I was willing to vote as I did in the last Division, because although I dislike referendums, I dislike thresholds even more. I am struggling on this provision, however, and I hope that the Minister will listen carefully to what I have to say. I mentioned the story about the art gallery and the eyes that seemed to be looking at each person from a...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Aviation Bill: Clause 3 - Power for aerodromes to (5 Jul 2005)

Graham Stringer: I was not intending to speak in this debate, but having listened carefully to the proponents of the amendments and the Minister, it seems that one line of argument is being missed. I accept that the proponents of the amendment are genuinely trying to get the best deal for local communities in terms of reducing noise. However, I think that the proposal in amendment No. 19 would disempower...

Public Bill Committee: Small Charitable Donations Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Oct 2012)

Darren Spivey: From my point of view, there are two important elements, which Fiona mentioned. Okay, the lifeboat stations are the community buildings. I think that starting to take out some of the restrictions on how items are collected and who the beneficiaries are, which would be very difficult to evidence, would be a strong start. Here is the community building, we have proved that it is...

Public Bill Committee: Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 25 - EEA agreement and EEA state (9 Mar 2006)

David Heath: I want to make a rather pedantic point, unfortunately, which is also rather complicated, about whether the European economic area agreement, or any modifications to it, are Community treaties. We know that the EEA agreement was entered into by member states of the European Union, the European Coal and Steel Community and the European Free Trade Association, but unlike sovereign states there...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - National Landing Requirement (10 Sep 2020)

Luke Pollard: Government amendment 5 goes against the very heart of what was promised to coastal communities in the referendum. It is a betrayal of our coastal communities that the Conservatives are supporting jobs in foreign ports. The clause, which was a Labour amendment, was deliberately designed to create jobs in our coastal communities, in ports from Newlyn, Plymouth, Portavogie in Northern Ireland,...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism Bill (22 Apr 2008)

Sir Ian Blair: As long as it is provided in a transparent way and with the proper level of debate, I think that we can involve the Muslim community in the protective measures that we are putting forward. Each member of the Muslim community is as much at risk of being killed as everyone else in the UK, and we are determined to do everything that we can to encourage community cohesion. The...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Sea fishing licences: further provision (13 Dec 2018)

Luke Pollard: We have heard from Ministers that we will get more fish as we move from relative stability within the common fisheries policy to zonal attachment outside the CFP. That is welcome and something that the Minister knows the Opposition support as much as Government Members. Given that we are to get a whole lot more fish, we believe that the Bill misses a trick when a requirement to land fish in...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Health Bill [Lords]: Clause 32 (10 May 2007)

Angela Browning: The Minister is being incredibly optimistic about the level of resources in the community that are available to make the policy effective. In my experience, most people who have had a period of in-patient treatment and then come out into the community do not fail themselves to contact the community services, it is the community services that fail them. There are simply not sufficient...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 104 - Approval condition where development order grants permission for building (8 Dec 2015)

Helen Hayes: These are probing amendments, designed to explore further the concept of permission in principle and the Government’s intentions in introducing it. There is considerable confusion regarding the concept and what it will mean for the English planning system and local communities. The Opposition wish to see a planning system that delivers the housing we need but does not override or overrule...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill: Written evidence to be reported to the House (1 Feb 2007)

Q193 Alison Seabeck: Are you confident that the safeguards set out in clause 59, which are designed to prevent community calls for action being abused by special interest groups or extreme groups, are strong enough? Have you considered the implications of allowing greater freedom for the public to take part in the decision-making process and the potential for two CCFAs with directly opposite...

Public Bill Committee: Equality Bill: Clause 19 - Groups (1 Dec 2005)

Meg Munn: The powers set out in the clause enable the commission to give effect to its duties to promote and encourage good practice between and within groups, which, as the hon. Gentleman has identified, are set out in clause 10. The powers are in addition to general powers under clause 13 to provide information, advice or guidance, to undertake research and to provide education and training. They are...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2018)

Luke Pollard: Q Coastal communities have been among the hardest hit by austerity since 2010, but there is a real chance that fishing could be part of a coastal community renaissance, if it is delivered in the right way. What are the things that you are looking for in the Bill to deliver the renaissance that, whichever side of the House Members are on, we all want to see in our coastal communities?

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: Clause 79 (15 Feb 2011)

Alison Seabeck: It is important that the Committee has an opportunity to debate fully some concerns that groups have expressed in their written evidence. At this stage, the amendments are likely to be probing, unless the Minister says something outrageous. He has not done that yet. Amendment 116 is a consequential amendment relating to amendment 117, so we will not spend time on it. Amendment 117 would...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Inspections Bill (20 Apr 2006)

Greg Mulholland: I shall speak to amendment No. 66. My hon. Friend the Member for Brent, East talked about the new localism that is sweeping the other two parties at present; they  are finally catching up with the Liberal Democrats in that regard. Localism is of course supposed to be at the heart of the Bill. We are told that it is specifically about parental choice. However, if it is about parental choice,...

Public Bill Committee: Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Bill [Lords]: Clause 24 - Community interest companies (16 Sep 2004)

Jacqui Smith: As we have heard, clause 24 introduces the concept of the community interest company—the CIC, or ''kick''. I shall try to refer to it in full. The community interest company will be a company with additional features to ensure that it will work for the benefit of the community. The proposal has been developed in the light of two consultations, both of which have clearly demonstrated the...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Regeneration Bill: Clause 2 (10 Jan 2008)

George Young: I was surprised that the right hon. Member for Greenwich and Woolwich tabled an amendment that added to a list, given what he said about my amendment this morning. Returning to my amendment, if there is one theme running through the Government’s housing policy, it is social inclusion, which is one reason why they have introduced the Bill. Social inclusivity is a fundamental element of the...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 26 - Limits on power to provide (8 Jan 2002)

Ivan Lewis: We must challenge the myth that if a school is involved in wider community activities, bringing the community into the school and the school to the community, it is deflected from its central, mainstream responsibility to raise standards, because such activities are integral to raising education standards in communities. I acknowledge the point made by the hon. Member for Harrogate and...
