Public Bill Committee: Education and Inspections Bill: Clause 7 (20 Apr 2006)

Annette Brooke: The hon. Gentleman misunderstands my point. I am suggesting that we are not talking necessarily about a call for a locally delivered service to which one would expect an instantaneous response. The proposal would mean a great deal of expense for a local authority. It is not the same as ensuring that the refuse lorry goes down someone’s street next week. The proposal represents a lot of work...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: [Part II] (20 May 2003)

Chris Grayling: I accept the Minister's explanation, but the provisions create an anomalous situation. Let the Minister think through what he said in the context of the Epsom and St. Helier NHS trust, which is my local trust. If that trust decides to become a foundation hospital, it will put forward an application to the Secretary of State and there will be various stages of deliberation in the Department as...

Public Bill Committee: Charities Bill [Lords]: Clause 7 (6 Jul 2006)

Ed Miliband: I share the hon. Gentleman’s sentiments; he used the phrase “heavy hand”, and I was about to use the same phrase. There should be no excuse or alibi for heavy-handed behaviour towards those who do not follow the commission’s advice; I agree with him on that. Those are presumably some of the steps that the Joint Committee encouraged the Charity Commission to take, and which it seems...

Public Bill Committee: Equality Bill: Clause 153 (30 Jun 2009)

Vera Baird: That is exactly what cannot be done because subsection (4)(b) prohibits such action. There is no danger of such a thing taking place lawfully under the Bill. Let me be as clear as possible. The hon. Gentleman says that businesses have requested clarity. Businesses tell me that they are already undertaking such a process. We must bear in mind that, when launching an assault on the provision,...

Public Bill Committee: Planning Bill: Clause 163 (31 Jan 2008)

John Healey: The right hon. Gentleman illustrates why we are approaching the levy’s development as we are. Within the framework set out in the Bill, there will be much detailed examination of how it might work in practice, and we must determine what the regulatory framework should be. That is one question that might be appropriate for that part of the process. During our discussion this morning, the...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Clause 46 - Power to search and seize vehicles (25 Jan 2005)

David Ruffley: Have there been any discussions about, for example, giving powers to community support officers to stop vehicles on the highway? The important point behind my question is that although I absolutely take on board what the Minister said—that in practice the agency will mount operations in close collaboration with the local police force, where it has the requisite intelligence—equally, we...

Public Bill Committee: Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill: Examination of Witness (8 Oct 2020)

General Sir Nick Parker: I honestly do not know, and that should worry us. If one is in a coalition with a Danish contingent, and if the Danes consider that the way we are approaching dealing with our people is different from their way and they feel that it is culturally incompatible for some reason, that would create difficulties. It might seem slightly pathetic, but I would defer to the...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: Clause 6 (1 Feb 2011)

Barbara Keeley: I welcome you, Mr Bayley, to the Chair; it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. The Minister will understand that we think the powers in clause 5, on which we have just voted, are too sweeping, because we covered that at some length this morning. In terms of the procedure for the orders, will the Minister tell us more about the process of further consultation? There is concern...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education Bill: Clause 12 - Qualifying complaints (12 Feb 2004)

Ivan Lewis: We have had an important debate, and there have been some interesting contributions. Before we go any further, we need to dispel the myth that OFFA is about admissions. It is about access to higher education. We must be clear about that; it is only Opposition members who do not understand the distinction. Some of us represent constituencies in which, for years, young people have been denied...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Schedule 12 (24 Jan 2008)

Ben Bradshaw: Hon. Members have raised some important points. These are matters of concern to pharmacists. I will spend a little time dealing with the concerns raised by the hon. Member for Romsey. Amendments Nos. 229 and 230 would remove the ability for anyone other than the Secretary of State to determine the remuneration paid for the provision of pharmaceutical services. Current legislation enables the...

Public Bill Committee: Gambling Bill: Clause 267 - Gaming machines (14 Dec 2004)

Julie Kirkbride: I base it on the experience of America and Australia where there have been serious problems when category A machines have been introduced. In areas where casinos offer that sort of entertainment, problem gambling is much more prevalent in the local population than in areas with access to category C and D machines, which do not have gambling problems in their communities. Category A machines...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 8 - Constitutional arrangements (30 Jun 2022)

Alex Norris: I share my hon. Friend’s view. That point was made very clearly in Tracy Brabin’s evidence. Having said that we in this place have an interest in constitutions and the rules of the game, my strong belief, as someone who wants to see change happen in my community and to see my community improve in a vast range of areas, is that form should follow function. What are we trying to get out of...

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Ministers, Elections and Petitions of Concern) Bill: Clause 1 - Period for making Ministerial appointments (6 Jul 2021)

Louise Haigh: As ever, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I appreciate the Minister laying out clauses 1 to 3 and his exposition of some of the issues raised on Second Reading, in particular on caretaker Ministers. As I made clear on Second Reading, we welcome these limited attempts to safeguard power sharing and to improve the sustainability of the Executive and the Assembly,...

Public Bill Committee: National Lottery Bill: Clause 8 - Reallocation of funds (27 Oct 2005)

Hugo Swire: I was talking about warm feelings so it is appropriate that my hon. Friend referred to divine matters. From the spiritual to the divine; he like me and other members of the Committee will have received correspondence from the Bishop of London voicing his concern on behalf of the Church about the Heritage Lottery Fund and the funding stream. Churches and places of worship in this country play...

Public Bill Committee: Sexual Offences Bill [Lords]: Clause 134 - Part 2: Northern Ireland (14 Oct 2003)

Chris Bryant: Like my hon. Friend, I congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General on the proposals in the new clauses. I should like to ask a couple of brief questions. First, I presume that there are no recent convictions leading to sentences that people are still serving and that there is nobody still in the pipeline, as it were, who needs to be cleared out. Secondly, it is...

Public Bill Committee: Human Tissue Bill: Clause 2 - ''Appropriate consent'': children (29 Jan 2004)

Andrew Lansley: I think that the Minister had helpfully said yes, and was explaining that. Her explanation will help families that are concerned that the practice of obtaining generic consent in the past may become the practice in the future. The fact that the definition of valid consent remains the common law definition has its uncertainties, but at the same time it means that the medical research community...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 158 - Dental Public Health (19 Jun 2003)

John Hutton: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for tabling these amendments, because it gives me the opportunity to place on the record the Government's intentions. Many of those duties are set out in section 5 of the National Health Service Act 1977. However, it specifically relates to those duties that are given to the Secretary of State that he then delegates to the primary care trusts. Clause 158...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witness (16 Sep 2021)

Fazilet Hadi: Huge concerns. If we think about who does not have a driving licence or a passport, who does not have a blue badge or a bus pass or a railcard, we are asking those people who have obviously found it unsurmountable for various reasons—those reasons could be cognitive, sensory, digital exclusion; all sorts of reasons—to apply for a card. We are asking the most disadvantaged...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 97 (7 Jun 2007)

Roger Gale: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment No. 252, in clause 97, page 68, line 22, at end add— ‘(9C) An order may not be made under this subsection unless a draft of the statutory instrument containing the order has been laid before, and approved by a resolution of, the House of Commons.’. Clause stand part. New clause 3—Missing trader intra community...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill: Examination of Witness (25 Jun 2020)

Professor Grubin: I am not quite clear what you are asking. In terms of the disclosure, this is after they have been released so the tests are not being run in prison, they are being run in the community, so any issues with the Parole Board I do not think are directly relevant to the polygraph testing.
