Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (11 Mar 2014)

Frances Crook: There is a fundamental problem here. The assumption behind your question is that we are sending children to custody to get services to deal with their language or educational needs. That is not what we should be doing. We have to make sure that those deficits are dealt with in the community. Furthermore, even if such services are intensively provided for a few weeks in...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Ben Wallace: The first step was to publish the information, discuss it with whomever we liked and ensure the Prevent statistics are all out there. They show that a large number of referrals into the Channel programme came from the far right and that this is a safeguarding policy for the benefit of us all, whether Muslim, middle class, in a community or diaspora. We know that the way people are being...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education and Research Bill (6 Sep 2016)

Dame Ruth Silver: I have been both surprised and shocked at two things: first, the lack of mention of skills generally in the Bill, and secondly, the lack of knowledge or appreciation of what colleges do. To give some figures, 10% of HE graduates in 2014-15 came through colleges—180,000 learners every year. Those learners are different from the traditional, rather “boarding school”...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Examination of witnesses (23 Jun 2020)

Professor Pattie: This is an interesting issue, isn’t it? The issue here again is obviously over, partially, the practice of splitting wards—which clearly can be done—and partially the pragmatics, if you like. I know you have had lots of evidence already about data sources, software availability, etc. I will leave that to people who are more expert in handling those data systems, but...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 56 - Community investment tax relief (23 May 2002)

Mr Paul Boateng: The clause introduces the community investment tax credit, which is a tax incentive to increase the flow of private investment in disadvantaged communities. The incentive is one of the Government's responses to recommendations by the social investment taskforce, which reported to the Chancellor in October 2000. We are enormously indebted to Ronnie Cohen and others on the taskforce for the...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice Bill: Clause 131 - Restrictions on imposing community sentences (4 Feb 2003)

Humfrey Malins: My view of the clause is that when a community sentence is passed, the court will have to take into account the seriousness of the offence, but it should in every case specifically take the offender's circumstances into account. In practice, I suppose that one of the most popular community orders is a community punishment order, formerly known as a community service order, by which a court...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill: Clause 11 (20 Nov 2007)

David Burrowes: I do not take issue with the technical amendment, but perhaps I could take the opportunity to make a comment in more of a stand part mode. The Magistrates Association’s is concerned that clause 11 is repetitious and unnecessary. That theme developed in our debate on clause 10. Clause 11 makes the point that sentencers do not need to impose a community sentence when the community threshold...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Inspections Bill: Clause 17 (25 Apr 2006)

Nick Gibb: With the exception of the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Mr. Leigh), this group of amendments is yet another backdoor attempt to thwart some of the Bill’s main principles. In moving amendment No. 188, the hon. Member for Bury, North claimed that it was the logical conclusion of the concessions that were made on enabling local authorities to propose a...

Public Bill Committee: Ivory Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jun 2018)

David Cowdrey: Those are all excellent points. The Bill will clearly close down markets in the UK. The more markets we close down, the more we deprive people of money and income. The price of raw ivory that was publicly for sale was $2,200 per kilo. After China introduced its ban, it went down to $1,100 and then down to $600. It is now about $450. There has been a massive devaluation in the...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 40 (31 Mar 2011)

Nick Gibb: Clause 40 seeks to focus inspection on the core business of a school, in other words on pupils’ achievement, the quality of teaching, behaviour and  safety and, of course, its leadership and management. I am not saying that those are the only things that matter, but they are the most important. Amendment 165 would place an additional requirement on the chief inspector to report on a...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 109 - Establishment of urban development corporations: procedure (8 Dec 2015)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I beg to move amendment 236, in clause 109, page 52, line 24, at end insert— “(4) Section 136 of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 [objects and general powers] is amended as follows. (5) After subsection (2) insert— ‘(2A) Corporations under this Act must contribute the long-term sustainable development and place making of the new community. (2B) Under this Act...

Public Bill Committee: Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill: Clause 17 - Statement of community involvement (16 Jan 2003)

Paul Beresford: One thing that is becoming apparent to local government is that it is required to consult on just about everything. Consultation involves community involvement, and there is a distinct feeling of consultation fatigue. I want to support my hon. Friend on the importance of the broad spectrum. Local authorities should be made absolutely aware of some of the basic requirements, which must include...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 1 - The green purposes (26 Jun 2012)

Fiona O'Donnell: There is a danger that we might get tied up in semantics. It is clear from the evidence submitted by the Aldersgate Group and others that they do not see that broad definition as a strength. They think that it might look like a lack of commitment from Government, and that it might not encourage investment in the sector. There is room for confusion and muddying of the waters. It is about...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 Oct 2016)

Andrew Whitaker: I do not think there is any doubt that local communities are involved in the planning process and in the planning application process. Therefore, the discussion over the determination of the planning application should involve whether things about the planning application need to be sorted out at a later date, and therefore communities should be expressing those concerns in...

Public Bill Committee: Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill: Schedule 1 (25 Oct 2007)

David Hanson: I thank my right hon. Friend for his intervention and agree with him. I hope that the whole Committee agrees that, if we are to have community sentences that are intended to keep young people out of custody, it is essential that they are meaningful, respected in the community, have some powers for dealing with breaches in a positive way and are codified in a national standard under the...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill (25 Jan 2011)

Adrian Penfold: I think that can be done. Our business model is slightly different from the house builder’s business model. We tend to invest and build for the longer term, and we build and hold. We have good examples of developing good relationships with local communities, where we can really have grown-up conversations about those sorts of things. I have to say that section 106...

Public Bill Committee: Sustainable Communities Bill: Clause 1 (28 Feb 2007)

Julia Goldsworthy: We all accept that there are difficulties in defining sustainable communities, but the Government are asking local authorities to undertake work relating to the sustainability of their local communities. It seems strange that they can require local authorities to take on a sustainable community strategy without having set down in law what that means.

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour Bill: Clause 53 - Sale of aerosol paint to children (22 May 2003)

Caroline Flint: I totally understand the issues surrounding tobacco, glue sniffing and consumption of alcohol. The age limits that apply to those substances are applied to protect young people's health, but we are talking about the well-being of communities. Part of the reason why we are discussing antisocial behaviour is the disproportionate impact that petty vandalism has on communities. It contributes to...

Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 68 - Anonymity for victims of female genital mutilation (20 Jan 2015)

Seema Malhotra: I am pleased to be able to speak about this important clause and to acknowledge the campaigning work of so many individuals and organisations, including Leyla Hussein, Nimco Ali, Daughters of Eve and Celestinecelest. I pay tribute to the work many local councils have undertaken in raising awareness of female genital mutilation in their local communities as part of the campaign to end FGM...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Reports of the Boundary Commissions (25 Jun 2020)

Clive Efford: Yes, there has to be, within this process, some degree of equalisation as to the weight of people’s votes and we have to try to achieve that as much as possible. I am arguing that, within that, we have to respect the importance of place, location and community in the democratic process. If we start to pick those apart just to meet a numerical requirement, we will diminish and undermine the...
