Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: Clause 37 - Schools: reduction of burdens (13 Mar 2014)

Toby Perkins: The Labour party is keen to support freedoms for schools that will promote higher standards, and we believe that some worthwhile freedoms are being created in the clause and in schedule  14, which we will debate shortly. However, it strikes us as odd that the Government have an agenda of removing certain burdens from academy schools that they continue to place on local authority schools....

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishmentof Offenders bill: Schedule 10 - Amendment of enactments relating to bail (11 Oct 2011)

Helen Goodman: I thought that this morning the Minister would come to the Committee and say that there was a problem with the 11,000 people who are remanded to prison and subsequently given a non-custodial sentence and that that was a justice issue. He has not mentioned that group of people. Indeed, they have been mentioned only by the hon. Member for Broxtowe, who made the very sensible point that that...

Public Bill Committee: Psychoactive Substances Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 - Meaning of “psychoactive substance” etc (27 Oct 2015)

Mike Penning: I thank the shadow Minister for her detailed and extensive comments, which I take in the context in which they were delivered. I want to address some of the points that were made. The SNP spokesman mentioned the idea of a toolkit—we do not need to reinvent the wheel every time, do we? In England, local authorities, which have responsibility for public health, spend £830 million a year on...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 4 (15 Mar 2011)

Graham Stuart: Perhaps the Minister will spell this out, but in case he does not, I want a debate on how the process will happen. I do not know what the average number of permanent exclusions is in schools—it is not very high—so if that is published, people in a community might talk and say, “Oh, it’s Tom Smith.” The question is whether that just cannot be allowed, or is a price worth paying for...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: New Clause 11 - Eligibility for housing and homelessness assistance (17 Nov 2015)

James Brokenshire: Migrants granted leave to enter or remain in the UK are generally expected to be able to maintain and accommodate themselves without recourse to public funds in the form of mainstream welfare benefits or local authority housing support. There is legislation in place to ensure that the majority of migrants cannot access those public funds. The Government are aware that in some cases a person...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 51 - Disposal of land held by public bodies (20 Oct 2022)

Tim Farron: I appreciate the Minister’s response. I am also grateful for the remarks from the hon. Member for York Central. This is a huge issue for all of us and there is much public land, particularly in a community such as mine, with multiple local authorities and, indeed, predecessor local authorities, national parks and all the other parts of the public sector that are present. Sometimes, that...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill (except clauses 4, 5, 20, 28, 57 to 77, 86, 111 and 282 to 289, and schedules 1, 3, 11, 12, 21 and 37 to 39): Relief for community amateur sports clubs (13 May 2004)

Richard Bacon: It does not surprise me that something that the hon. Member for Ealing, North was involved in turned out not to be profitable. The fact is that community amateur sports clubs—while they are plainly not, in all cases, charities, in many cases are, by definition, not charities, and in some cases are not eligible to apply to be charities—are widely understood to be essentially philanthropic...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishmentof Offenders bill: Clause 70 - Youth rehabilitation order: fine for breach (11 Oct 2011)

Crispin Blunt: As we have heard, the amendments seek to prevent the courts from imposing on young people under 18 the new proposed maximum fine of £2,500 for a breach of their youth rehabilitation order. They would restrict the maximum fine to £250 for under-16s, and £1,000 for 16 to 17-year-olds. The youth rehabilitation order is the community sentence for under-18-year-olds. We intend to bring the fine...

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Clause 9 - Non-constituent members of a CCA (30 Jun 2022)

Alex Norris: The Minister is of course right that such decisions are more local than central Government, but that goes back to my argument on the first set of amendments. Having told people that communities will get the power to shape place, if what comes through the process is devolution to a new level of politics consisting of politicians and public figures who are further way from those people than...

Public Bill Committee: NHS Reform & Health Care Professions Bill: Clause 16 - Entry and Inspection of Premises (6 Dec 2001)

Oliver Heald: For the sake of completeness, will the Under-Secretary explain what the reciprocal arrangements are? Will Welsh community health councils be able to come into English NHS trusts to do the same job of scrutiny in reverse, so that there are no gaps in the system?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Dr Girling: Yes, I genuinely do believe that that is the case. We currently have 12 members plus myself on the committee. The members cover a wide range of disciplines, from veterinary surgeons who have worked for many years and are recognised as specialists within the community to those who are working in a variety of zoo licensed premises—from larger zoos to smaller ones. We have members...

Public Bill Committee: Policing and Crime Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2016)

Steve White: We have some concerns in relation to mission creep to a degree and the current accountability in relation to community support officers, and certainly in relation to volunteers. The proposal raises a question of accountability and how that would work. There is absolutely no doubt that many volunteers who work with the police service up and down the country do excellent work....

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Social investment tax relief (17 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: As a Co-op, as well as Labour, MP, I am rather passionate about the idea of social investment. The Minister seems to be a little short-sighted about the idea of assets—after all, there are many people looking at running community pubs, for instance, which is a great example of a community asset that we might want to support. I would not see that as an example of a low-risk venture. Surely,...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 2 - Closure order (6 May 2003)

Bob Ainsworth: The hon. Member for Surrey Heath will be pleased to hear that I, too, found his words quite seductive. One of the essential elements of the power is its speed in tackling the serious problem of premises that cause serious nuisance and disruption to communities. It is essential that a closure notice be endorsed by a court at the earliest opportunity. The 48-hour period between the issuing...

Public Bill Committee: Railways Bill: Substitute road services (13 Jan 2005)

Greg Knight: I beg to move amendment No. 69, in page 43, line 27, at end insert '; or the new route and the stopping places thereon are more convenient for, and accessible to, the communities served thereby.'. I want to make similar but not identical points to those that have just been made. The amendment is moderate in effect and is meant to be helpful. It is in no way at odds with what the Government...

Public Bill Committee: Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill (18 Jan 2011)

Clive Efford: The evidence we are getting is pretty consistent in saying that the Bill effectively gives police commissioners fewer powers than the democratically elected body in London currently has in its hands. If we are seeking to enhance the role of democratically elected representatives from communities, why would we step back from what we have already achieved in London?

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Further written evidence reported to the House (19 Feb 2008)

Malcolm Wicks: Can I add that I am very keen that we develop a better interface—if I can put it that way—around the issues of energy and climate change, and of the agricultural community and the farming community? Yesterday I had the opportunity to address the National Farmers Union. Whether I was the first Energy Minister to do that, I do not know—it may be that I was, but I think...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: New Clause 9 - Duty to promote lending to small and medium sized house builders (10 Dec 2015)

Gareth Thomas: I say gently to the hon. Gentleman that I have not made up the Home Builders Federation’s concerns. The quotes that I have just given are real. There is a real problem preventing many small and medium-sized house builders from accessing finance. I suggest to him that more needs to be done and the new clause is a way of doing that. Finally, there is one other option available if a guarantor...
