Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Annual report on corrosive substance attacks (11 Sep 2018)

Louise Haigh: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I find it seriously frustrating that so much of the debate focuses on London. As she rightly says, many communities and constituencies outside London have experienced significant increases in youth and serious violence. Only last night, I was at the launch in Sheffield of Operation Fortify, a multi-agency response to tackle youth violence led by the...

Public Bill Committee: Offender Management Bill: Clause 24 (23 Jan 2007)

Edward Garnier: Allegedly. It is a very valuable compendium of sentencing powers and the forms of words that judges are recommended to speak when sentencing an individual. I do not want to go through all of that. I simply want to point out to the Minister that the whole sentencing regime, as created by this Government over the past 10 years, is incredibly complicated. It does not make clear to the defendant...

Public Bill Committee: Crossrail Bill: Clause 20 (22 Nov 2007)

Stephen Hammond: Clause 20 will effectively disapply the provisions of the Control of Pollution Act 1974, which will mean that appeals are determined by not a magistrates court, but the Secretary of State, which is concerning. The Government are trying to enact legislation that allows them, or their nominated undertaker, to create a great deal of noise—I accept that sometimes that is unavoidable—in and...

Public Bill Committee: Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 2 - Social action (9 Sep 2014)

Ian Swales: This comment is an attempt to be helpful. In my local council, some sort of new broom is effectively driving a lot of community activity out of existence through an overbearing approach to risk assessments and health and safety assessments. Does the Minister believe that the Bill might help those organisations that are busy cancelling fêtes? The latest one is a Christmas street event which...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 66 - Reviews and investigations relating to Wales (12 Jun 2003)

Don Touhig: Yes, that would be possible if a hospital trust had been commissioned by a provider in Wales to carry out health care or treatments for Welsh patients. There is confusion about the roles of CHAI and HIUW compared with community health councils in Wales and patient forums in England. As hon. Members know, it has been made clear in previous legislation, most recently the Health (Wales) Act...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill: Clause 3 (27 Jan 2011)

Clive Efford: I take the point made by my hon. Friend but, as someone born and bred in London, I can understand that people who do not know London well might think that it is just one homogenous zone. However, it is a very diverse and different community. The fact that areas are so diverse can be applied to police authority areas, and it is nigh impossible for one individual to act as the representative of...

Public Bill Committee: Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill: Clause 43 - Major infrastructure projects (23 Jan 2003)

David Wilshire: They do wonder. That is the point, and that is why the clause is so important. When one talks about such major projects, one uses such grand concepts as the country and the region. It is so simple to assume that the only local interest in a major infrastructure project will be from local people who gang up and say, ''Our local interest is more important than the national interest'' or ''We...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Rob Connelly: As an example of that, there was a local election in which complaints were raised with us about potential fraud in the community by one of the candidates. People were potentially going to polling stations, and what have you. We did additional training for our polling station staff in that particular ward—myself and a police officer from West Midlands police—to explain what...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Examination of Witnesses (7 Sep 2021)

Danny Mortimer: Navina captures really well the work that is already going on, not least, as she has said, through the pandemic. My members, who are the trusts and ICSs around the country, are already trying to find ways of developing joint approaches to developing their workforce, not least with their colleagues in social care, but also by thinking about different ways in which they can...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 7 - Small profits rate and fractions for financial year 2012 (22 May 2012)

Catherine McKinnell: My hon. Friend put the question and answered it himself. Another point I would make is that there is no confidence in the business community. There is not sufficient confidence to invest, as my hon. Friend put it, hard-earned profits. Therefore businesses are sitting on their cash mountain, rather than investing it into an economy that is being directed and led by a Government in which the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 19 - General Functions (16 Sep 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move amendment 58, in clause 19, page 17, line 4, at end insert “through working with innovation and life sciences ecosystems, facilitated by Academic Health Science Networks, to ensure patients and the public have timely access to transformative innovation.” This amendment would mandate Trusts to work with AHSNs to promote innovation in health services. Innovation has...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Funding (9 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: These clauses all relate to the powers of the domestic abuse commissioner; there is a huge area of the Bill about her powers and how this role is going to work. As my hon. Friend the Member for Hove and the Minister have said, we all welcome the commissioner. I want to make some brief comments about the issue that clause 4 deals with, which is funding. It arises from a constructive concern...

Public Bill Committee: Off-Road Vehicles (Registration) Bill (11 Jul 2007)

Jim Dobbin: Briefly, I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Blackley, who is a neighbour of mine in Greater Manchester, for the result that he has achieved and the outcomes that we hope for. I thank the Government for taking the Bill seriously. The hon. Gentleman’s constituency and mine are separated by the M60, but are linked by a number of bridges that cross it. It is not the first...

Public Bill Committee: Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 (9 Jun 2009)

Amendment made:19, in clause 1, page 2, line 36, leave out from ‘means’ to end of line 37 and insert ‘— (a) a function that is exercisable— (i) by the Secretary of State by virtue of this section, or (ii) by general customs officials by virtue of section 3, (b) a function that is conferred on general customs officials or the Secretary of State by or by virtue of any...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Feb 2020)

Dr Fenwick: From our point of view, it is about more than farming and food production per se; it is about the families that farm on the land. There are certain types of farming that continue, but effectively the communities do not. We see that in parts of England; thankfully we do not see it so much in Wales, if at all. We would say there has been a missed opportunity to include among key...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Reports of the Boundary Commissions (25 Jun 2020)

Alec Shelbrooke: Does my hon. Friend agree that, as several colleagues have mentioned, it is really important that the boundary commissions takes notice of what is being said here? Hopefully, they will look at the arguments being made, whatever the outcomes are. It is all about communities and getting it right in the first instance—I refer to the comments made by the right hon. Member for Warley. If they...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 2 (15 Jan 2008)

Angela Browning: I wish to give the Minister an example of when the two issues come into conflict. Subsection (3)(a) refers to “views expressed by members of the public about activities to which the functions relate”. I endorse the current view of the public from personal casework concerning very elderly people who are transferred from a general hospital to a small community hospital. They are clearly at...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform Bill [Lords]: Clause 36 - Community safety accreditation schemes (25 Jun 2002)

Annette Brooke: I just need to clarify that I am referring to accredited safety officers. I suggest that the points made in the review translate over to that context if we are considering a holistic approach to policing on estates. I am aware that we shall pick up on those points and that they shall be relevant. I am being honest by saying that the quotes are out of context. A local authority representative...

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: Indeed. My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. If the Government were proposing such a radical change to the way in which some planning decisions were made—decisions that hugely affect local communities—surely they would at least have thought about either time limits or clear procedures that would enable local authorities to get out of the designation period. I hope that he will allow...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill [Lords]: New Clause 16 (15 Sep 2020)

Luke Pollard: I rise in support of what my colleague, the shadow Fisheries Minister, has just said. There is a glaring gap in the skills and workforce strategy when it comes to fishing. That was highlighted in the discussion of the previous Fisheries Bill, when a Minister said that fishing is an unskilled profession. Technically, for immigration purposes, that may be the classification that fishing has...
