Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Power to make provision about aquatic animal diseases (17 Dec 2018)

George Eustice: The shadow Minister will note that the word “aquatic” has arrived again. However, this clause is slightly different, since it relates to replacing provisions dealing with fish health in particular once we leave the EU and lose some of the powers in the European Communities Act 1972. The clause confers delegated powers on the Secretary of State to make changes to aquatic animal health...

Public Bill Committee: School Transport Bill: Clause 1 - School travel schemes (9 Nov 2004)

John Pugh: I would like to speak in favour amendment No.22, which I tabled, and make some comments about amendment No. 23. The two amendments are based on almost different directions. As I understand it, under amendment No. 23 a pilot can only ever be a whole authority pilot. That puts an element of restriction that does not currently exist into pilot schemes. Amendment No.22 states that a local...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 57 - Relief for community amateur sports clubs (23 May 2002)

Mr Paul Boateng: I am very grateful for that indication, Mr. Gale. Clause 57 and schedule 18 introduce a package of tax reliefs for community amateur sports clubs. The sports club sector has long lobbied for parity with charities. The Charity Commission's announcement last November that it will recognise the promotion of community participation in healthy recreation by the provision of facilities for the...

Public Bill Committee: Communications Bill: Clause 3 - General duties of OFCOM (10 Dec 2002)

Andrew Lansley: The hon. Gentleman is right—it is difficult. I do not dispute that by its nature Ofcom will have to consider the extent to which competition is able to deliver the needs of consumers, but it will not be able wholly to do so. That is implied by the structure of Community legislation, the first requirement of which, as reflected in clause 4, is the promotion of competition. It is stated...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Retention of Communications data (3 May 2016)

Joanna Cherry: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause relates to part 4 of the Bill, in particular clause 78, and to the retention of communications data. It would exclude the providers of rural or community access communication services and small service providers from the obligation to collect and retain data, which I believe would be in accordance with policy statements made...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 18 - Release of prisoners on Fridays or the day before Bank Holiday periods (22 Jun 2021)

Alex Cunningham: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause makes a very simple amendment to the current discharging regime from the prison, which the Opposition believe would ensure that those leaving prison have the support that they need as they transition into the community. May I begin by thanking Nacro for its invaluable help in drafting the clause and its essential work to...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill [Lords]: New Clause 17 - Proposals for discontinuing of rural primary school (22 Mar 2005)

‘(1)Section 29 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 (c. 31) (proposals for discontinuance of community, foundation, voluntary or maintained nursery school) is amended as follows. (2)For subsection (4) substitute— “(4A)The matters to which the relevant body shall have regard in formulating any proposals under this section in relation to a rural primary school include— (a)the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill: Clause 77 (22 Feb 2007)

Alison Seabeck: On the question whether there is a demand, I do not think that we have probed enough. I can understand why local authorities in London might not be hopping up and down saying, “Let’s have lots of parishes all over the place,” but I agree with the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate that there are communities out there that will see value in the concept, whether in Hampstead village or...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Examination of witness (18 Jun 2020)

Dave McCobb: Thanks very much. Our primary concern is about the restrictiveness of the 5% threshold in terms of equalising the electorates in constituencies. There have been widespread reports of the degree of under-registration of electors in many parts of the country and of the number of people who are not correctly registered. Setting a very restrictive threshold at 5% reduces the...

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

Jyoti Fernandes: Our union represents all scales of farms: we are all agroecological farms, family farms and mixed farms. As smallholder farmers, this is something we are particularly interested in. We also represent a lot of horticulturalists, who grow fruit and veg, and it is possible to grow a lot of fruit and veg on a very small acreage. To date, we have been really disadvantaged by the...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Power to grant licences in respect of foreign fishing boats (11 Dec 2018)

Luke Pollard: Indeed they are. Those are fine words, which I wish I had used in my opening remarks, because that is exactly the point of this amendment. As we are now taking back control of our waters, it is up to us to set the standards that we wish the fishers in our community to be governed by. That is why it is important that we include in the Bill a clear set of words that say that EU fishers must...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Commencement (27 Oct 2016)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I shall address my introductory remarks to the Minister’s general points about the importance of local plan-making. I say at the outset that Opposition members of the Committee have noticed and welcomed the difference in tone and the slight change in policy direction that have come with the new Minister. I agree about the importance of having communities at the heart of local plan-making....

Public Bill Committee: Intellectual Property Bill [Lords]: Clause 20 - Freedom of information: exemption for research (30 Jan 2014)

David Willetts: I should explain that what we are doing in clause 20 is responding to a request from the Select Committee on Justice, and a request I received from the research and scientific community, that the Freedom of Information Act 2000 be amended to provide additional protection for pre-publication research by giving the same specific protection as exists in Scotland—the so-called Scottish...

Public Bill Committee: Planning Bill: Clause 105 (29 Jan 2008)

Jacqui Lait: The Minister has set out a convincing argument, but it still begs a number of questions. He refers to inappropriate development in the green belt. I would suggest that that is the issue about which local communities might get most exercised. They wish to feel, as we have set out clearly, that there is recourse to a democratically accountable person—the Secretary of State—because green...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Finances Bill: Examination of witnesses (15 Nov 2016)

Dr Hawley: Judges play a key role in instructing the jury how to interpret some parts of the law. These are incredibly complex cases. In a way, we are reflecting what has been expressed to us by some in the law enforcement community who are trying to put these complex cases to judges who are not specialists and so do not have the level of knowledge about the crimes that they would like.

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords]: Clause 38 - Public order offences (12 Feb 2013)

Stella Creasy: It is interesting that the Minister cannot quite clarify whether or not the way in which the film “Innocence of Muslims”—I wonder if the Minister has seen it or understood the concept of something being circulated on the internet and how that influences the ability—[Interruption . ] I say “concept” because this legislation is quite clear about where the offence takes place....

Public Bill Committee: Adoption and Children Bill: Clause 1 - Considerations applying to the exercise of powers (27 Nov 2001)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I have already said that the clause is well balanced and humane. It gives due weight to many factors that need to be considered in the process of adoption: it weighs those factors and maintains an appropriate balance. I was sorry to hear the contribution of the hon. Member for North Dorset, which was insensitive to important issues. The philosophical idea of children as a blank sheet of...

Public Bill Committee: Police and Justice Bill: Clause 19 - Anti-social behaviour injunctions (23 Mar 2006)

Hazel Blears: It is Thursday afternoon at the end of a heavy week, and I shall do my very best to be kind and polite to the hon. Gentleman, despite his provoking suggestions that antisocial behaviour is about kids playing football in the street. I do not know what kind of community he lives in—I am not familiar with his constituency—but I must say to him that antisocial behaviour problems in many...

Public Bill Committee: Environment Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Mar 2020)

Rico Wojtulewicz: Yes, in a perfect world, but not always, because local parish councils perhaps become set in their ways in believing that a particular thing will damage their area. A great example that you mentioned there is building on the edge of a village. We would love to be able to build on the edge of a village. Unfortunately, opposition from parish councils is so strong that many...

Public Bill Committee: Public Bodies Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Power to abolish: bodies and offices (8 Sep 2011)

Mark Williams: I hesitate to use the words “wages board”, because I am looking for some reassurance from my hon. Friend the Minister on new structures and systems that will be put in place. Some beauties of the wages board were the differentiation of the six levels and how skilled, often highly technical, work could be rewarded at an appropriate level. I do not think that it has been a disincentive; it...
