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...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Contingencies Bill: Clause 1 - Meaning of ''emergency'' (27 Jan 2004)

Douglas Alexander: As I have tried to make clear to the Committee, the circumstances in which there would be disruption to transport would vary from community to community and we would need to be cognisant of what mode of transport is most effective and popular in each locality. If there was significant disruption to all public transport in London—road, above-ground rail and the tube—those would clearly be...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform Bill: Clause 28 (2 Nov 2006)

Anne McGuire: This is the great philosophical argument that we are all going to have to deal with—the rights and responsibilities issue. We cannot say that people can opt out of their responsibilities to other members of their community, and that is not only in respect of accepting a benefit from the state. The hon. Gentleman perhaps answered his question in a previous debate, although a little more...

Public Bill Committee: Public Order Bill: Examination of Witness (9 Jun 2022)

Chris Noble: Thank you, Minister. There is a lot, in terms of looking back. There have been a number of trends. We have seen global causes land on our shores very quickly and having significant impacts. Black Lives Matter is a good example. We have seen causes overlapping, both in terms of membership and tactics. There have been some very novel—without giving them any credit—and highly...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Contingencies Bill: Clause 21 - Scope of emergency regulations (10 Feb 2004)

Fiona Mactaggart: There can be several trivialities. They might be timing elements or insubstantial matters. I shall cite an example. Both the hon. Members for Sheffield, Hallam and for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Carmichael) referred to the European Communities Act 1972. I have grasped such examples because they have illuminated our debate and helped us to imagine the situation that we might face. Let us...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill: Clause 1 (23 Oct 2007)

David Hanson: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for his contribution. The essential point that I am trying to make is that the reparation order provides a separate sentence—in this case, below the youth rehabilitation order—that is focused on activities that will help prevent crime and deal with some low-level, but significant, offences that young people might be responsible for, such as graffiti,...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 4 - Application by NHS trusts (20 May 2003)

Chris Grayling: I want to say a few things in response to the interesting set of amendments tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for South Cambridgeshire. He has put his finger on one of the clearest issues arising from the structures that have been put in place by the Government under the Bill—that is, that there is a coherent argument to say that the democratic model that is being phased in to the NHS is...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 38 - Reconfiguration of services: intervention powers (21 Sep 2021)

Chris Skidmore: I want to speak generally to the clause and the schedule, rather than in support of any amendments. I thank the Minister for setting out the continued role of the IRP and the four tests that have been put in place. I am sure that all of us on the Committee have at some stage in our local communities faced a healthcare service reorganisation. They are very painful processes, as the hon. Member...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Distribution of fishing opportunities (13 Dec 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister for that explanation. On Tuesday, when we debated whether the public good should be one of the objectives of the Bill, I did take on board his point: as fish is a public good already, what is the point of having it as an objective? However, in this instance, we are trying to redistribute fishing quota more equitably so that local communities can benefit, so I do...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Assessment of mental health impact for leaseholders in dwellings with building safety risks (26 Oct 2021)

Daisy Cooper: I will speak briefly to add my support for the new clause. Colleagues have covered many issues, but my constituents in St Albans have told me that their mental health has deteriorated because they do not feel safe in their own homes. Some cannot sleep at night and others have had to move out, so that they are paying not only for the mortgage on their flat, but for rent. That creates financial...

Public Bill Committee: Armed Forces Bill: New Clause 8 - Terms and Conditions of Service (31 Mar 2021)

Stephen Morgan: New clause 10, taken together with amendments 3 to 6, is designed to ensure that the Government fulfil their commitment to fully enshrine the armed forces covenant into law, and that it is delivered to all service personnel, veterans and their families. As I previously noted on amendments 3 to 6, the Bill as drafted attempts to absolve central Government of the responsibility to deliver the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Audit and Accountability Bill [Lords]: Clause 10 - Functions of auditor panel (7 Nov 2013)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: Thank you, Sir Edward, I was just about to do so. I have the made the point that there are some real concerns in the public domain about how police and crime commissioners are operating—how their money is being spent—and we want to ensure proper audit arrangements. I hope that the Minister will tell me that I am worrying unnecessarily and that enough is being done to ensure independent...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 95 (6 Jun 2006)

Theresa Villiers: I must start by apologising to the Chairman and to the Economic Secretary for missing the first few seconds of his presentation. I will follow his example in addressing clauses 95 to 98 together. I am slightly worried that I find myself in agreement with him on the proposals. They are welcome because, as we have heard, they provide a legal and tax framework to accommodate two further...

Public Bill Committee: Fisheries Bill: Fisheries payments to the Scottish Ministers (17 Dec 2018)

Alan Brown: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I bet you are delighted to be here in the final sitting tonight; the rest of the House has probably adjourned. The new clause would ensure that the vital contribution that is made by the current European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to support sustainable growth in Scottish...

Public Bill Committee: Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill: Clause 26 - Regions (19 Dec 2002)

Nick Raynsford: As I was saying, the Opposition are unsure whether London should be included—unsurprisingly, as it is three times the size of the north-east and if it is treated as a region, it cannot be compatible with objective one in the new clause. Furthermore, we have to take account of the need to reflect the identities and interests of local communities. We entirely accept the desire to reflect...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 7 (8 May 2008)

Philip Hammond: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr. Cook. Clause 7 introduces the concept of entrepreneurs relief, about which there will be a fair bit to say as we go through schedule 3. I should perhaps place on record that we remain unconvinced by the Government’s approach of using entrepreneurs relief as a response to the outburst of anger in the business community at both the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill: Clause 92 (22 Feb 2007)

Angela Smith: I welcome the comments made by the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst. I understand his desire to have some of what he calls logic in the process. Perhaps when I have spoken and explained the process superficially—to use the word of the day—it will be logical, and there are good reasons why there will be two different processes. The hon. Gentleman has already explained that taking...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill [Lords]: New Clause 14 - Compliance with community law (22 Jun 2004)

Nigel Griffiths: I am very grateful for the detailed way in which my hon. Friends the Members for East Lothian and for Western Isles set out some fundamental issues that the new clause covers. The new clause would require the Secretary of State to comply with European Community law and the authority—in this case Ofgem—to ensure that any charges for access to and use of the transmission system are...

Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: New Clause 3 - Pledge of Office by First Minister and Deputy First Minister (16 Jul 2013)

Mark Durkan: The point of advertising the amendments in this Committee is partly to give some encouragement, prompting and questions from outside. I am no longer in the Assembly, nor on the Assembly and Executive Review Committee, but I know that it is not the case that those things are under live and imminent consideration in that way. I am indicating that, having heard what I have said, if there are bad...
