Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 21 - Bringing business and commercial projects within Planning Act 2008 regime (4 Dec 2012)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: Clause 21 seeks to bring new types of project into the major infrastructure regime established by the Planning Act 2008. Although I am pleased that the Minister recognises that the Act, introduced by the previous Labour Government, is working well, I have to say that that is unusual for him. A number of points in the clause diverge significantly from the aims and processes established by the...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 51 - Powers of police civilians (20 May 2003)

Mr Nick Hawkins: The Minister knows our concern, because we have debated it many times. People would prefer to see more police officers, rather than community support officers. We do not have a problem with the Government amendments, because we understand that community support officers exist and it is sensible that the powers are to be extended to what the Government call police civilians. However, we hope...

Public Bill Committee: Professional Qualifications Bill [Lords]: New Clause 3 - Protection for existing recognised qualifications (18 Jan 2022)

Bill Esterson: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. For workers whose professional qualifications are already recognised in the United Kingdom, this new clause provides additional certainty that the legislation will not affect them negatively. There is a clear need to give those whose qualifications are already recognised here that certainty and confidence. In many cases, those...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: New Schedule 1 - Transfer of community orders to Scotland or Northern Ireland (4 Mar 2003)

Scotland 1 (1) Where the court considering the making of a community order is satisfied that the offender resides in Scotland, or will reside there when the order comes into force, the court may not make a community order in respect of the offender unless it appears to the court— (a) in the case of an order imposing a requirement mentioned in subparagraph (2), that arrangements exist for...

Public Bill Committee: Savings Accounts and Health in Pregnancy Grant Bill: Clause 1 (9 Nov 2010)

Kate Green: I want to speak briefly in support of the amendment, with particular reference to an equality impact assessment with regard to black and minority ethnic people. I want to highlight that such communities are often particularly reluctant to use mainstream financial institutions. Sometimes that is because they are intimidated—I guess it would be reasonable to say—by the institutions or feel...

Public Bill Committee: Housing Bill: Clause 67 - Designation of selective licensing areas (29 Jan 2004)

Brian Iddon: In my view this is a dangerous amendment. I represent a large Asian community and I know that there are many people—hundreds, if not thousands—living in that community who do not hold British passports but have indefinite permission to remain in this country. They prefer to hold on to the passport of their country of origin, but many of them have been here for a very long time and prefer...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Sea Fish Industry Authority: powers in relation to parts of UK etc. (17 Dec 2018)

Alistair Carmichael: I thank the hon. Member for Argyll and Bute for tabling the new clause, because it is an important topic to discuss and there is no doubt that our current system is capable of improvement. I sound a couple of notes of caution, however, in relation to the proposal for devolution. We risk breaking up the support that is available by geography rather than by sector. The inshore fishermen in the...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill: Clause 9 (1 Feb 2011)

Nick Herbert: It will be clarified when we make further announcements about the next financial year. Some grants for certain specific things in the broad field of crime reduction will continue to be made from the centre by the Home Office and some may continue to be allocated directly to local authorities, but from 2012, some will be allocated to police and crime commissioners. We are currently considering...

Public Bill Committee: Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 (9 Jun 2009)

Julia Goldsworthy: The name of the hon. Member for Thurrock (Andrew Mackinlay) is being invoked fairly frequently and we are only debating clause 2. Although some of the language he used on Second Reading was unparliamentary, perhaps it is best described as “a load of Thurrocks.” The clause is bizarre because the basic assumption behind it is that there is no problem with the structures that are in...

Public Bill Committee: Business Rate Supplements Bill (22 Jan 2009)

Mr. Khan: The concern that you articulate is one that we recognise. If you look at the history—the consultation that Lyons undertook and the Select Committee’s investigation and our response—you will see that we recognise the need for additionality. By definition, this is supplementary—it is a business rate supplement. If you look at the Bill, you will see that we try to...

Public Bill Committee: Planning and Compulsory Purchase (Re-committed) Bill: New Clause 31 - Enforcement of planning controls (21 Oct 2003)

Yvette Cooper: Many of the concerns expressed about enforcement were discussed as part of the enforcement review that I mentioned earlier. Local authorities have discretion and are able to make a proportionate response. However, we need also to consider the role of democratically elected councillors. I listened carefully to what the hon. Member for Ludlow said about a local authority not doing enforcement....

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Mar 2011)

Mr Duncan Smith: I think the right thing is to localise the provisions. I know that there is talk about a postcode lottery; I have never felt that the postcode lottery applies to everything. I understand from being a politician, and from having been in opposition myself, that the postcode lottery is a good thing, generally, to whack Governments with when they are making changes such as...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 101 - Planning powers of the Mayor of London (3 Dec 2015)

Helen Hayes: The Opposition support the aim of a planning process that does not inhibit the speed of potential delivery. London’s boroughs have a commitment to boosting London’s housing supply and building the homes that Londoners need in accordance with local priorities, but there is some concern about the planning requirements in the clause, which provide the Mayor of London with new powers of...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 1 - Option to make planning application directly to Secretary of State (22 Nov 2012)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: The Minister does himself a great disservice: the Opposition would like to hear a lot more from him justifying the Bill because I do not think that we have heard, at all, from either the Secretary of State, or the Minister on Second Reading, or during our deliberations today, why the Bill, and this clause in particular, are necessary. I want to look at how this clause is an attack on localism...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - The National Crime Agency (22 Jan 2013)

Jeremy Browne: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his broad support for the analysis I was laying before the Committee. I will get to the nub of his question, but this is probably as good an opportunity as any in our deliberations to say something very briefly about crime. Crime is evolving to quite a large degree. Our constituents are always concerned by the local, immediate, day-to-day crime,...

Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Jan 2018)

Chris Southworth: There is a general recognition across the international community since the EU referendum—of course, that was followed by Trump and further issues across the G7—that the existing models for handling trade need to change. That is because there is a disconnect within society and over wider communities and regions, particularly in the lower-skilled areas, where they have...

Public Bill Committee: Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [Lords]: New Clause 10 (18 Jun 2009)

Dan Rogerson: The hon. Member for Wycombe has done a good service to the local government community by proposing the new clause. NALC hoped that some of the issues that were originally in the White Paper would be addressed in the Bill; the Bill is of a different nature, so it hoped such matters could be restored to it. Hon. Members have heard me, in previous debates, express my regard for parish councils...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Feb 2020)

Jim Egan: First, I do not think they should be recruited by Natural England or the RPA. Within the supply chain, there are probably sufficient people. An agronomist has to be trained and to get your agronomy diploma you have to do a BETA—biodiversity and environmental training for advisers—certificate in conservation management. It is only a three-day course, but it is about awareness....

Public Bill Committee: Traffic Management Bill: New clause 2 - Works to motorways and trunk roads (5 Feb 2004)

John Redwood: The amendment has two implications for costs. First, there is the cost to the taxpayer, which will go up to a modest extent because there will be more night working. However, there will be an enormous saving to the business community and the wider community because congestion will be reduced during the business day. It is most important that the Government and Parliament consider both...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill: Schedule 4 (25 Oct 2007)

‘Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (c. 46) 35A The Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 has effect subject to the following amendments. 35B (1) Section 234 (probation orders: persons residing in England and Wales) is amended as follows. (2) In subsection (2), at the end insert “(in any case where the offender has attained the age of 18 years) or under section 1 of the Criminal...
