Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail(London - West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 28 - Report of the cumulative impacts of HS2 works (8 Mar 2016)

Robert Goodwill: The new clause would introduce a requirement to repeat work that has already been undertaken and that has been scrutinised by the Select Committee. The Bill, when deposited, was accompanied  by an environmental statement that reported the likely significant environmental effects of the construction and operation of phase 1 of HS2. The statement reported the likely significant effects of the...

Public Bill Committee: Parliamentary Constituencies Bill: Examination of Witness (18 Jun 2020)

Tom Adams: It certainly creates challenges from the perspective of political parties and others who are reliant on electoral geography boundaries. Given that wards are created by local Boundary Commissions to have some sense of community ties, and they are created for a reason, if you split them you are further cutting community ties, and potentially creating more challenges, in the sense...

Public Bill Committee: : Clause 74 (19 Mar 2009)

Jim Knight: By way of clarification, just because a local authority has failed that particular school community, it does not mean that it is incapable of looking after other schools in its area. It might have had particular problems with aspiration for that community and believe that it is not capable of achieving in the way that it should. There might be issues attached to the governance of the school...

Public Bill Committee: Planning and Compulsory Purchase (Re-committed) Bill: New clause 26 - Pre-application consultation (16 Oct 2003)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: The Minister alluded to a paradox to which I referred—the difficulty of finding the balance between community involvement and speeding up the planning system. On the face of it, the two are contrary to each other. I note that although there is to be community involvement in the local plan-making process under the Bill, there is none in the regional spatial strategy. I believe that an...

Public Bill Committee: (5 Mar 2009)

Clare Tickell: We run some very good children’s centres. Who should provide children’s centres is the wrong question. For my money, the important things are the ingredients of a good children’s centre: it is genuinely at the heart of the community, it reflects the community, it involves the citizens of the community, and it demonstrably puts the needs of children and their...

Public Bill Committee: Education Bill: Clause 25 - Power of governing body to provide (8 Jan 2002)

Ivan Lewis: Perhaps being more open minded is a reasonable new year's resolution to ask every hon. Member to adopt? I agree with the hon. Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough that we have a responsibility to ensure that resources are available to enable schools to be imaginative and innovative, to open their facilities and to engage with partners in the community, whoever they might be—voluntary and...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill: Written evidence to be reported to the House (1 Feb 2007)

Peter Facey: Which is why we are not sitting here and saying that you have to go down a particular route. Our whole message is that there should be local choice. I live in a rural village, and there is an argument that in terms of our community, extending it to a multi-member ward might not make sense, but I am not saying that there should be single-member wards in all circumstances. The...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jul 2011)

Jonathan Ledger: I think that the probation service is often attacked for not focusing enough on victims. We have always argued with that, because actually the focus has been strong in the probation service for a good part of 20 years now—a significant shift. Yes, you are absolutely right about the dangers that you mentioned, and the cuts and probation staff’s ability to work in the...

Public Bill Committee: Police and Justice Bill: Clause 15 - Role of local authority overview and scrutiny committees (23 Mar 2006)

Hazel Blears: I am delighted that the proposal to introduce a community call to action appears to have widespread and all-party support, despite the final comments of the hon. Member for Brokenshire, which I shall come to in due course. The hon. Member for Cheltenham welcomed the proposals and referred to his experience, as a local councillor, of the effectiveness of overview and scrutiny committees. I,...

Public Bill Committee: Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Jul 2011)

John Fassenfelt: For the sake of transparency and of the community, there has to be a record, and it has to be shared with the community in order for the community to gain confidence in some of the out of court disposals when they are used in a proper context.

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

Professor Davies: The only advantage that I can see is that there might be some security custodian advantage. I say that in the context that I understand education is a primary activity within it, but I do not think that we do anyone a service in the community, or the people who go there, if we pretend this is just another college. These are people who have got in trouble with the...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Jul 2013)

Caroline Spelman: It is very interesting to listen to you talk about your engagement and the role of the council and the community. Are you aware that, in other local authorities, it is the council that takes the minutes and runs the working groups with the community, precisely because the elected representatives of the community are seen to have the interests of local people at heart? Those working groups...

Public Bill Committee: Police (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords]: New clause 1 - Discrimination in appointments (11 Mar 2003)

Gregory Campbell: The right hon. Gentleman's digging, as recorded by Hansard, will be scrutinised by many people in Northern Ireland. To grasp the depth of intensity with which section 46 is viewed in Northern Ireland, it is necessary to allude to the competitions held for the PSNI. Several competitions have been held under that section: I shall not go into every one, but suffice it to say, as the hon. Member...

Public Bill Committee: Planning Bill: Written evidence to be reported to the House (8 Jan 2008)

Paul Clark: I know what you are saying is sufficient about the community infrastructure levy and accept what you are saying, to a certain extent, about the major benefits that you bring—and will continue to bring—to local communities in a raft of ways. In relation to clause 20, its implications and the numbers that you are talking about, when you say that the community infrastructure levy should not...

Public Bill Committee: (20 Jan 2009)

Councillor Knight: Our view is very much that we are a democratic tier of government. We represent and are accountable to our communities. The guarantee to local businesses that this power will not be abused is the guarantee that we are accountable to local communities. We have a direct interest in ensuring that local economies are maintained and sustained, that local employment is sustained,...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (18 May 2021)

Councillor Caliskan: I think the LGA would highlight that a prevention-first approach is a long-term, sustainable approach to deal with crime in our communities. We absolutely support collaboration and a multi-agency working approach, because it works. The evidence demonstrates that it works, and the best and most successful outcomes demonstrate that. Take the violence reduction units, for...

Public Bill Committee: Localism Bill: New Clause 11 (10 Mar 2011)

Stephen Gilbert: It is a pleasure to serve again under your chairmanship, Mr Amess, and I am sure that I speak for the whole Committee when I say that it is a pleasure to have reached the last day of this Public Bill Committee. As it has been my first ever Public Bill Committee, I feel that I have learned a huge amount about the Bill, the issues surrounding it and the processes of this House. As a new Member,...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords]: Schedule 15 - Dealing non-custodially with offenders (5 Feb 2013)

Damian Green: The defendant would recognise, the court would recognise and then the wider community would recognise. The hon. Lady accepts that 13 different types of order can be made. In different cases, different people will find them punitive. Fines or curfews will be punitive for different people, and the court has to decide that, as long as there is a recognisably punitive element. Nothing in the...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 56 (16 Jun 2009)

Kitty Ussher: I hope to be able to come back to the net position of the UK Exchequer as a result of all the changes. What I think his question was getting at was that marginal rates, and the way in which they are tiered, are actually higher in the UK than the EC rates. Therefore, as a result of the double taxation treaty, they will pay more tax in total, although there is a sort of credit put in as part of...
