Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 145 (12 Jun 2008)

Justine Greening: I beg to move amendment No. 353, in clause 145, page 89, line 21, leave out from ‘substitute’ to end of line 23 and insert ‘“the withdrawal of approval of— (i) an environmental body by the regulatory body; (ii) the regulatory body by the Commissioners; and (iii) an environmental body by the Commissioners on an occasion when the Commissioners have assessed that serious non-compliance...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Oct 2015)

Mims Davies: The issue that you see is the decision-making process and resources in terms of impact on potentially destitute families. I am really keen to know what level of families we are talking about. Are they clustered in certain areas? How much will that be a resource issue on other children in communities, where people are then putting pressure on those local resources because of these impacts?

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Clause 2 - Requirements included in injunctions (25 Jun 2013)

Jeremy Browne: As all the major parties have accepted, there is no additional money available for measures of this type because of the appalling budget deficit we inherited when we came to office three years ago. We will require agencies that already have considerable amounts of public money available to them to fund a lot of the initiatives. However, some of the positive requirements will not incur costs,...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Schedule 1 - Provision for police and crime commissioner to be fire and rescue authority (22 Mar 2016)

Mims Davies: I am thinking back to the point about accountability and scrutiny in the fire service. As a councillor for nearly six years—I did not do quite as many years as the hon. Lady—it was the one area that I felt I had very little connection with, despite being an elected member. As a Member of Parliament, I have connected with the fire service in Hampshire and seen great work where it has...

Public Bill Committee: Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]: Schedule 4 - Effect on marriage (11 Mar 2004)

Andrew Selous: I put back to the hon. Gentleman the point I made about the Manchester metro church—if that is its correct name—being able to regulate its affairs as it sees fit. Many religious bodies—not exclusively Christian ones, but Muslim as well—wish to exercise their own ethos and pastoral practices when it comes to welcoming and introducing transsexuals into their communities. That should be...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Inspections Bill: Clause 73 (10 May 2006)

Sarah Teather: Absolutely. I strongly endorse what the hon. Gentleman says. Indeed, the Liberal Democrats, working with Labour, have pushed forward the “Hungry for Success” programme in Scotland. Jamie Oliver has highlighted it, and he has congratulated people on running such partnerships. It demonstrates what can be done with the right investment if one concentrates on nutritional standards in the...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Jan 2013)

Gary Smith: Chair, I just want to say that we are big supporters of the nuclear industry. It creates quality jobs. If you get the opportunity, you should look at some of the good stuff that we are doing with EDF. We are in social contracts, which are about investment in skills, jobs and communities. If we get the right funding for carbon capture and storage, that will create jobs as well.

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill: Compensation: application (8 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: The Minister has covered a great deal of the ground concerning property. Will he reflect on the assertion that tenants do not have restrictions on free movement? I am not entirely sure that I can agree with him on that point. Some people will be very wedded to their community and will feel unable to move for lots of reasons, including family or community ties. It is an obvious omission in my...

Public Bill Committee: Agriculture Bill: Examination of Witness (23 Oct 2018)

Dr Fenwick: I referred earlier to the biggest changes since the Agriculture Act 1947. Those changes are the fact that we are moving away from what we currently have, which is an active farmer rule. Notwithstanding all the different changes that have happened since we went into the EU and moved away from the Agriculture Act and had various different CAP reforms, we have still ended up with an...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 100 (10 Mar 2009)

Edward Garnier: I am referring to the Prison Reform Trust report that came out in 2008. It does not matter, for our purposes, whether it is a commission or a council, but we are in the business of deciding what it should do and what its powers should be. Thirdly, the Prison Reform Trust says that a commission or council should provide “community engagement—to inform and to consult with the...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 52 - Meaning of “community amateur sports club” (14 Jun 2012)

John Mann: The clause’s explanatory notes are scanty in detail, but there are important issues in defining community amateur sports clubs, in terms of potential or ongoing clashes with HMRC. As we are legislating for that now, I want to check the exact situation. The first point relates to miners’ welfare clubs under the auspices of the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation, which is defined as...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Inspections Bill: Clause 14 (25 Apr 2006)

Annette Brooke: Perhaps in surprise, I find myselfin total agreement with the hon. Member for Gainsborough (Mr. Leigh). I did not quite follow the exact reasoning behind the amendments before I heard his speech, but I am now absolutely convinced of the argument. People struggle with my constituency’s name, but, as may be imagined, Mid-Dorset and North Poole is a mix of urban and rural communities. It has...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: Clause 95 (17 Feb 2011)

Greg Clark: I am grateful for the questions, because they give me the chance to say a little more about our intentions. As I have said, we were minded not to repeal CIL, and we thought that it was best to make use of what is on the statute book. We think that the current definitions are constraining in a number of respects, as I mentioned in relation to affordable housing and whether it should be...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 55 - Fees (29 Apr 2003)

Adrian Sanders: The amendments are helpful; they are clearly intended to seek transparency in fee making and to get some definition of what is intended, which I hope the Minister will be able to give us. The Minister gave me an assurance on fees at an earlier meeting, which was vitally important. The track record of some local authorities on fee setting is not good, certainly not in relation to public...

Public Bill Committee: Coroners and Justice Bill: Clause 11 (24 Feb 2009)

Bridget Prentice: Again, I understand what the hon. Gentleman is saying. I would just say two things to him. One is, of course, that clause 11 is expected to be an exception rather than a rule. The other is that even as we edge our way towards a balance between the Executive and the judiciary, we should not forget the balance that comes from proper parliamentary scrutiny of the Executive. That is built into...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 72 - Interpretation of Part 6 (15 Jan 2002)

Andrew Turner: I offer a warm welcome to you, Mr. Pike. The amendments probe the Government's intentions with regard to religious education in nursery schools and in nursery settings in Wales. There appears to be no obligation for nursery education to be provided in nursery schools or nursery settings, but there is an obligation for religious education to be provided in nursery classes in primary schools....

Public Bill Committee: UK Borders Bill: Clause 5 (8 Mar 2007)

Stewart Jackson: I reassure my hon. Friend that, contrary to the impression that he might have got from the hon. Member for Burnley, my 8,000 Muslim constituents are not clamouring to have an ID card or a biometric immigration registration card. I believe that my hon. Friend will agree that that has the potential to exacerbate a breakdown in community cohesion. In cosmopolitan areas with a large mix of ethnic...

Public Bill Committee: Violent Crime Reduction Bill: Clause 30 - Manufacture, import and sale of realistic imitation firearms (25 Oct 2005)

Hazel Blears: I welcome the broad support for the proposals shown by the hon. Member for East Antrim (Sammy Wilson). I do not think that we have ever said that any single measure will do away with violent crime at a stroke. We are trying to introduce a range of measures, which we genuinely feel will reduce it. He is right to say that in addition to dealing with realistic imitations we also need to do a...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail(London - West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 31 - Compensation: application (8 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: The Minister has covered a great deal of the ground concerning property. Will he reflect on the assertion that tenants do not have restrictions on free movement? I am not entirely sure that I can agree with him on that point. Some people will be very wedded to their community and will feel unable to move for lots of reasons, including family or community ties. It is an obvious omission in my...
