Public Bill Committee: Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Bill: Clause 9 - Promotion of community energy (25 Jan 2006)

Mark Lazarowicz: The amendments are designed to clarify the provisions for community energy under the Bill. I am delighted that the Government have no objections to clause 9 as it stands, so I shall be inviting members of the Committee to support it at the appropriate time. I am grateful to the Department of Trade and Industry for working with me to draft the amendments, which will strengthen the provisions....

Public Bill Committee: Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill: Clause 70 - Community safety strategy (12 Feb 2002)

Crispin Blunt: I am grateful. We have had a debate on the importance of implementing the review, and of the Government being faithful to it. We have said that the purpose of the Belfast agreement was to set up a review, and that it would be wholly unreasonable to expect the Government neither to abide by its terms nor to introduce the necessary legislation to implement it. However, that is what the clause...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [Lords]: Schedule 7 - Minor and consequential amendments (6 Jul 2004)

Ann Cryer: As a well meaning reader of The Guardian, I think that the Evening Standard probably got it right in that there were 120 deaths throughout the country. Many of them occurred in the Met area, but there were also cases from throughout the country. On the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth, when the Department for Constitutional Affairs was the Lord Chancellor's...

Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: Clause 43 - Exhibition of films in community premises (13 Mar 2014)

Tom Brake: I think I would be right in saying that amateur film would be covered by the same measure. While “Film the House”, which was mentioned by the hon. Lady, might be of interest to Members of this House and the House of Lords, I suspect that there would not be a much wider public audience for that particular production. Amendment 14 suggests that enactment of clause 43, or perhaps the whole...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Jun 2020)

Professor Acheson: The circle of trust and accountability is a system devised by Mennonites, I think, in Canada, where one of their community had been convicted of a high-profile sex offence and was returning to the community. That group of people said, “How can we welcome this person back into our community”—because that was the Christian ethos—“but also keep our kids safe?”...

Public Bill Committee: Communications Bill: Clause 345 - Grants to access radio providers (30 Jan 2003)

Peter Atkinson: With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 35—Grants to community media— No. NC35, to move the following Clause:— '.—(1) OFCOM shall make such payments as they consider appropriate to the credit of a fund established under this section, to be known as the Community Media Fund. (2) The Fund shall be under the management of a body established for the purposes of this...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Jun 2015)

Dr Allen: It is more difficult, which is why I am kind of okay with the idea—it is correct in one sense—that metrics should find that schools that serve affluent communities are, on average, making better progress for the children. That is correct. It is also correct that Ofsted walks into schools that serve affluent communities and sees, on average, better teaching and leadership. All...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 Jun 2013)

Gavin Thomas: There are a couple of things to say about that. I will answer in terms of the partnership approach to the issue. I think that in the past, standards have been variable. There are very good examples across the country of partnership-led approaches to systemic issues within communities suffering from antisocial behaviour, but it is not uniform across the country. I think that in...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 Jun 2013)

Rebecca Bryant: I think the current regime as it stands—where, if somebody complains to the local authority or the police, or a social landlord, and they are not satisfied with the response, they can go through a formal complaints process and complain to the ombudsman, whether the local government ombudsman, the housing ombudsman or the IPCC—is there to challenge and check the way that...

Public Bill Committee: Homelessness Bill: Clause 15 - Allocation schemes (12 Jul 2001)

Hywel Francis: I am grateful for my first opportunity to speak about this important Bill. I endorse the clause on the need to deal with anti-social behaviour and to support sustainable communities. In my Aberavon constituency, as elsewhere, there are many examples of anti-social behaviour. Its causes are many and varied. In my constituency—and particularly in communities such as Briton Ferry, Glyncorrwg...

Public Bill Committee: Small Charitable Donations Bill: Clause 7 - Meaning of “running charitable activities in a community building” etc (25 Oct 2012)

Sajid Javid: The amendments change the community buildings rule in two ways. Amendment 7 makes it plain that in order to qualify as a community building, entrance to the building or the part of the building in which the charitable activities are taking place must be free of charge. Amendments 8, 9 and 10 change the rules to allow anyone to count towards the quorum of 10 people constituting a group,...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Bill: Clause 37 - Best value grant: communities (4 Feb 2003)

Andrew Turner: I should like to explore some of the types of information that the National Assembly for Wales might seek to obtain under the provisions of the clause. It may be difficult to envisage that in the context of a regime under which no best value requirements are placed on any parishes or communities in Wales. However, can the Under-Secretary indicate whether the information that a community...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government (Religious etc. Observances) Bill: Clause 1 - Powers of councils (6 Jan 2015)

Rob Flello: I would like to turn the hon. Member for Peterborough’s point a slightly different way around. A lot of the groups that I speak to come specifically and explicitly from faith communities and do a lot of work in our communities, although I appreciate that it is not only people from faith communities who do that. They run food banks, work with vulnerable individuals and so on. A lot of those...

Public Bill Committee: Offender Management Bill: Schedule 1 (16 Jan 2007)

Mark Hunter: I want to discuss amendment No. 38, although I will take the opportunity to say that I am sympathetic to the amendments in the name of the hon. and learned Member for Harborough and his hon. Friends, not least because they touch on similar ground. The amendment addresses the issue of magistrates and local councillors being members of the new bodies. That is important if local connections are...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 98 - Temporary event notice (8 May 2003)

Malcolm Moss: I am pleased that the Minister has been plagued, but disappointed that he has not yielded to the arguments, because if the Minister for Rural Affairs can see that there are potential problems for the rural community, I should have thought that that was something that the Minister in his current capacity ought to take on board. We are attempting to find a way that will lead to greater...

Public Bill Committee: NHS Reform & Health Care Professions Bill: Clause16 - entry and inspection of premises (6 Dec 2001)

Hazel Blears: I am keen to make progress so that we can discuss the substantive issues of clause 21, which covers more than access to premises and is important to improving health care. I shall make my comments as swiftly as I can. Several hon. Members raised points about how to achieve the right balance between allowing access to premises and recognising that visits from patients forums to those in...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 Oct 2016)

Ruth Reed: Funding has already been put in place for providing plans for disadvantaged areas, but local authorities are beholden to identify and bring forward local plans and we do not yet know whether the funding is sufficient to enable that. Where you have a clearly identified community, whether it be parishes or other well-knit communities, it is very easy to put in train the process of...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: Clause 89 (15 Feb 2011)

Fiona Bruce: May I speak briefly against the fixed definition of sustainable development as proposed by Opposition Members? I will give one example of the dangers of such a fixed definition with its inevitable omissions. To some, such omissions are considered vital for the development of strong, healthy local communities. I speak of the needs of faith groups, and their immensely valuable contribution to...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill: Clause 34 - Asylum-seeker: form of support (14 May 2002)

Karen Buck: I understand that point, but it is somewhat undermined by the fact that the proportion is falling. Clearly, if communities are created in places where they did not previously exist, and they take root, families will seek to unite and friends and communities will seek to gather around those new locations. That is precisely the point of dispersal. During the relatively short time for which that...

Public Bill Committee: Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Bill [Lords]: Clause 34 - New companies (16 Sep 2004)

Jacqui Smith: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point, which reinforces the importance of community interest companies, particularly because of their role in respect of disabled people. We have put considerable investment into the development of the proposal, not only in the Bill, but in promoting social enterprise generally. There is a future builders' fund of £125 million from the Home Office to...
