Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill: Written evidence to be reported to the House (18 Oct 2007)

Les Lawrence: I know that it sounds simplistic, but I would mention the whole process of early intervention, working with families, early identification of youngsters who are in danger of getting into trouble, and the use of outreach services from the youth offending services. Those constructs and the passage of information between organisations are all elements that help to reduce the...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Clause 62 - Challenging the validity of orders (2 Jul 2013)

Damian Green: As the hon. Lady has explained, this group of amendments relates to the question of which parties can challenge the validity of a public spaces protection order, a concern raised by the Ramblers Association in its written evidence. An application to challenge an order can be made to the High Court by anyone who lives in, works in or visits the restricted area to which the order applies. Those...

Public Bill Committee: Human Tissue Bill: Mrs. Irene Adams (27 Jan 2004)

Andrew Lansley: I join the Minister in welcoming you to the Chair, Mrs. Adams. Your reputation for fairness precedes you, and I expect that, as long as we behave ourselves and maintain order, you will be a benevolent dictator. We on the Conservative Benches will endeavour to keep to that stricture. I entirely agree with the Minister that proceedings will be cosy; this is not one of the cavernous Committee...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 139 - Serious violence reduction orders (17 Jun 2021)

Sarah Jones: My hon. Friend makes an important point. We should remind ourselves of this: if I faced a crime, I would immediately call the police—they are the people I trust to fix it—but there are communities in our country who do not have that trust, and who do not think that calling 999 will help them, or keep them safe. We must act on that. Following Black Lives Matter and the death of George...

Public Bill Committee: Police and Justice Bill: Schedule 4 - Police bail (21 Mar 2006)

Hazel Blears: No, I do not think it is right to include a time limit in the Bill. Clearly, it is important that our judicial and police systems work as quickly as possible and are as effective as they can be. The safeguards that are in the system that allow for a person to appeal first to the police against any conditions imposed and then to the magistrates court are sufficient. I would not like an...

Public Bill Committee: Health (Wales) Bill: Clause 8 (12 Dec 2002)

Dame Cheryl Gillan: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is a dangerous creeping tendency in Government to claim that they are moving decisions closer to local communities, whereas in fact, by secondary legislation, they are moving them further up the chain and into the heart of government? They are using vehicles that preclude local scrutiny of Ministers' decisions. They are centralising power, not devolving it.

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Clause 59 - Programme requirement (15 Sep 2011)

Helen Goodman: Amendments 310 and 311 would delete the leaving out of accredited programmes and would make a consequential change. Amendment 312, which relates to making provision for people with learning disabilities, is rather different. The purpose of amendments 310 and 311 is to retain the use of accredited programmes. We accept the proposal in the clause that there can be flexibility where a person...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Schedule 4 (12 Feb 2009)

Paul Holmes: Clearly, we will have to continue to disagree with the Government about the degree to which local authorities, which are elected by, and represent and live in, their local communities, can be trusted and empowered to actually govern on behalf of those communities, as opposed to being told what to do and micro-managed from London. Much of what the Minister said about the possible content of...

Public Bill Committee: Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill: Schedule 2 - Judicial Appointments Commission (31 Jan 2002)

Sylvia Hermon: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. The benchmark against which the Bill should be measured is the Belfast agreement—which some prefer to call the Good Friday agreement. For ease of reference, the aims of the criminal justice system are set out on page 1 of the review of the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland. It states: ''The Agreement set out what the...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 102 - Landfill tax: rate (8 May 2001)

Peter Luff: I was; I did, with a little reluctance, and in the hope that it would not be increased sharply above the rate of inflation, which is what is happening. My mental arithmetic is not what it used to be, but the increase is not far short of 10 per cent. Increasing £12, £13 or £14 rates by £1 is a smaller percentage increase, but still represents a significant increase over and above inflation...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 19 (15 May 2007)

Edward Balls: We will do that in plenty of time. I answered that point carefully. The hon. Member for Braintree, again citing his business credentials, asked about businesses being consulted and I read out two quotes from business people who have given their views. We are now consulting on the basis of the regulations for the stamp duty exemption. Consultations on the wider zero-carbon homes initiative...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Bill [Lords]: Schedule 4 - Investigations by Parliamentary Commissioner (29 Jun 2004)

Paul Goggins: The amendments provide a right for the victims of sexual or violent offences to be consulted and to make representations about the conditions of release of offenders. That right was introduced for the victims of offences when the offender received a prison sentence under the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000, but there was no equivalent provision when the offender was detained...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Bill: Clause 43 - Arrangements with respect to business improvement districts (4 Feb 2003)

Edward Davey: One can argue about what will be fair or unfair in different types of BID schemes. The Minister believes that voluntary contributions will be the fairest way forward, but what about areas where few make voluntary contributions? Property owners benefit from the BID, but they do not contribute to it. Is that fair? Our approach, which I thought the Conservatives supported a few minutes ago, is...

Public Bill Committee: Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill: Examination of Witnesses (6 Dec 2016)

Saranel Benjamin: As I said, we come from very different development backgrounds. For War on Want, a charity that works with partners in the global south, it is not about creating jobs; that is our approach. We are about supporting grassroots communities and organisations to allow them to envision the change that they want to see in their own countries. For me, when I see a private firm...

Public Bill Committee: Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Jan 2018)

Gordon Tutt: In terms of the systems we have currently for undertaking customs procedures, we probably have some of the most advanced systems in the world for doing these transactions. We have a lot of advantages over other countries in that we have got integration with our community systems providers in the ports, who can provide advance information. Customs and the Border Force to some...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Regeneration Bill: Clause 1 (10 Jan 2008)

Iain Wright: May I say, Mr. Benton, what a pleasure it is to see you in the Chair? I wish you a happy new year—a peaceful and prosperous one—and I extend my wishes to all members of the Committee and to officials. We now come to the traditional clause-by-clause deliberations after our excursion into oral evidence, which is still a recent thing for the House. I have been a member of various Public Bill...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Health Bill: Clause 6 - Treatment: power of entry (4 Dec 2001)

Colin Breed: The amendment is another attempt to remove some words from the Bill. Of course, if the Department were prepared to remove everything that we wanted it to, the Bill would probably be only one page long. The power that we are debating may not be used at all; I know that the Minister will say that he just wants to have that power. However, with regard to the circumstances that are described in...

Public Bill Committee: Community Care (Delayed Discharges etc.) Bill: Clause 2 - Notice of patient's possible need (10 Dec 2002)

Paul Burstow: I beg to move amendment No. 67, in clause 2, page 2, line 11, at end insert— '(2A) Further to the fulfilment of the requirements under subsection 1(a) and (b) a single assessment process shall be undertaken to include— (a) assessment of entitlement for continuing care in pursuance of statutory responsibilities under the National Health Service Act 1977; (b) assessment of entitlement...

Public Bill Committee: Crown Employment (Nationality) Bill: Clause 1 - Removal of existing nationality requirements (7 Jun 2004)

Andrew Dismore: Thank you, Mr. Gale. Welcome to the Chair. You may recall that I approached you when I was trying to recruit Conservative Members. You said that you did not serve on Committees, but chaired them. Well, I got you in the end, one way or another. The clause is the meat of the Bill, the purpose of which is to remove the plethora of anomalies in the law on civil service employment. The clause...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 70 - Female genital mutilation protection orders (20 Jan 2015)

Seema Malhotra: The right hon. Gentleman makes an important point about the distinction between imposing a cultural view and supporting those in affected communities so that they are empowered to shift a dominant culture where these traditions have been in place for generations. My point is that the public encouragement of FGM is an issue that has been raised from within affected communities. I am sure that...
