Public Bill Committee: Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill: (Except clauses 1 to 9) - New Clause 2 - Analysis of PSNI Historical Enquiries Team material (16 Jul 2013)

Mike Penning: Follow that! We have had a sensible debate, informed by the extensive knowledge of the former Secretary of State who brought in the HET. As for the HET itself, I know the shadow Minister said that it was perhaps a bit looser than it should be, but we are where we are with it. We also have to say—I often do, and am often criticised for doing so—that we have to let devolution work in...

Public Bill Committee: Health Protection Agency Bill [Lords]: Clause 3 - Radiation protection functions (29 Jun 2004)

Miss Melanie Johnson: As I said, there is certainly no requirement to consult anyone else. That does not necessarily mean that no one else will be consulted, as the hon. Gentleman will appreciate. The hon. Member for Newark asked whether the responsibility to provide information and advice was being taken seriously. The answer is yes, which is why these matters are included in subsection (1)(b), as they are in...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 73 - Offence of failure to prevent fraud, false accounting or money laundering (29 Nov 2022)

Thomas Tugendhat: I am delighted to speak on the new clause. As the right hon. Member for Barking correctly identifies, it touches on many areas that my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary and I have spoken about on numerous occasions, and we are not alone in having done so. Section 172(1)(b) and (d) of the Companies Act 2006 speaks about the interests of employees and of the community being the responsibility of...

Public Bill Committee: Small Charitable Donations Bill (18 Oct 2012)

Sajid Javid: I do not have that number to hand. We talked in earlier sessions about the number of charities. Of the 180,000-odd charities in the UK, approximately 100,000 already have a relationship with HMRC, and in a typical year about 65,000 are making claims under gift aid. One could use those numbers to provide an approximate answer to the hon. Lady, but I am happy  to see if there is a better way...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 27 (16 May 2006)

David Gauke: Not nearly enough, but we will make a start there. In brief and to simplify, the Factortame cases related to the Merchant Shipping Act 1988, which determined that in respect of shipping quotas, the UK quotas would be available only for UK persons. The ECJ determined that this was in breach of EU law. The House of Lords determined that the terms of the European Communities Act 1972 meant that...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 5 - Small profits rate and fractions for financial year 2013 (25 Apr 2013)

Stephen Doughty: The Minister has given a long list of measures that the Government are supposed to be taking to support small businesses. I speak regularly to a number of small businesses in my constituency, and they have a much less positive view of what the Government are doing. If the Minister is doing all this to support the small business community, why are we seeing the slowest rate of recovery in...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 83 - Review of public health and poverty effects of Act (20 Oct 2022)

I hear a cheer in the room as I rise to my feet for a final time. I thank you, Mrs Murray, for your chairing of the Committee. I also thank your colleagues, the Clerks and Hansard. We have had a lot of really important debates. New clause 83 stands in my name and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams). Reviewing our public health policy is really...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: Clause 126 - Purposes of sentencing (30 Jan 2003)

Ian Lucas: Does my hon. Friend agree that we must at all costs avoid the politicisation of sentencing? I think that we are gently moving in the right direction, and hope that the process that we are engaged in today will amount to further steps in the right direction—that of removing the politics from sentencing policy. That would be in the best interests of the community at large and of politicians, too.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 40 - Revocation etc of certain provision made under section 2(2) of ECA 1972 (23 Sep 2021)

Christopher Pincher: I would be happy enough to speak to clause 30 again, Mr Efford, although I am not sure that that is the desire of the Committee. My eloquence and possibly my effluence covered all bases. Clause 40 makes a technical but necessary provision to enable the revocation of out-of-date provisions in building regulations made under the European Communities Act 1972 as we modernise the regulations in...

Public Bill Committee: Rating (Agricultural Premises and Rural Shops) Bill: Clause 3 - Rate relief for rural food shops (8 May 2001)

Bob Ainsworth: The five amendments concern the extension of mandatory rate relief to all village food shops. Amendment No. 14 changes the overall definition of a food shop. Amendments Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 15 concern the exclusion of confectionery and catering from the definition of a food shop. Amendment No. 14 would extend mandatory relief to any village shop that sold food as only a small part of its...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 - Voter identification (22 Sep 2021)

Fleur Anderson: In Northern Ireland, people can take an expired form of photo ID and it will still count, so there is no limit there. A limit of 15 years does not apply in Northern Ireland, so perhaps a longer period of time should be looked at. It would be good to know the Minister’s thinking on that. Mandating renewal of these documents any less than every 15 years would have a huge and disproportionate...

Public Bill Committee: Climate Change Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 (24 Jun 2008)

Phil Woolas: I do not accept that point entirely. The EU is well placed internationally, because a number of EU countries, including the UK, are on course to meet the Kyoto targets. Indeed, it is interesting that in the international debate the objection to 2° C is sometimes that some European countries are on course to do better in their contribution. The EU policy is a 20 per cent. reduction in the...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 105 - Counter notice where permitted limits exceeded (13 May 2003)

Malcolm Moss: Yes, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. ACRE made its arguments successfully to the Minister for Rural Affairs, and the Minister alluded to the fact that his door continued to be thumped on by the relevant Minister who was trying to press the case. Will the Minister write to ACRE, or tell the Committee that he would be pleased to see its representatives to discuss the...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 44 - Admission forums (10 Jan 2002)

Phil Willis: I have enormous respect for the hon. Gentleman, and I regard him as a friend in this House, but I have not disregarded that. I visit Bradford often, and I also visited Oldham and the hon. Gentleman's constituency recently. I accept that elements of those communities have made demands. It would be absolutely wrong to say that the massed ranks of the Muslim community want their children...

Public Bill Committee: Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill: Clause 1 - National social enterprise strategy (19 Oct 2011)

Chris White: May I make a little more progress? Although many believe that the strategies would force local authorities and the national Government to consider social enterprise more thoroughly when planning for the future, the duty to consider consultation—also under the Bill—will give public bodies the incentive to go out and talk to the sector, our charities and voluntary organisations and to work...

Public Bill Committee: British Sign Language Bill: Clause 1 - Recognition of British Sign Language (23 Feb 2022)

Virginia Crosbie: It is an honour and a privilege to serve on the Committee. I congratulate and thank my hon. Friend the Minister and the hon. Member for West Lancashire for championing the British Sign Language Bill. As the Member of Parliament for Ynys Môn, I am learning Welsh, because it is the language of the island and of my constituents. I have seen first hand how important it is to be able to...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform Bill: Clause 69 (3 May 2011)

Karen Buck: The amendment leads seamlessly on from the debate that we have just had about ring-fencing and some of the issues that we have already touched on. The two amendments that I have tabled relate to each other quite closely. I wholly agree with the Minister—I am sure that we would all agree—that there are cases where local authorities in rural areas would seek to provide a service differently...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill: Clause 255 - Disqualification from office: local government (14 May 2002)

Mr Harry Barnes: The same principles apply to clause 255, which concerns councils. There are, however, some extra considerations that need to be taken into account. Councillors, unlike Members of Parliament, are blocked by decisions made in Parliament, which include statutes, regulations following statutes and ministerial circulars. When, for instance, they deal with planning matters, they have to be very...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity Bill: Clause 36 - Duty of NHS body to seek advice before providing accommodation (4 Nov 2004)

Tim Boswell: Briefly, I am delighted that the hon. Lady has spoken to the new clauses tabled by the right hon. Member for Coatbridge and Chryston and it is right to pause for a moment to consider them. I do not intend to reopen the issue of advocacy. That is in no sense to suggest that it has gone away, but at this stage it may not be appropriate to add much to what has been said. However, I would like to...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 66 - Support provided by the NHS to populations at risk of malnutrition (2 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This new clause would put responsibility on integrated care boards to take the lead on tackling malnutrition in their community. We spoke about malnutrition in the context of hospital food standards, and we were not able to move the Minister to extend those hospital food standards to other care settings. I thought that was a shame, and I...
