Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: Clause 1 - Authorisation of criminal conduct (15 Oct 2020)

Conor McGinn: ...did not get to make a full speech, so I am happy to take his intervention. I hope that the Minister will reply to the valid and valuable point that he makes. We understand that in a fast-changing intelligence landscape, a degree of operational flexibility is right and necessary, but I urge the Minister to provide some clarity and assurances that the requirements for certification will not...

Lord Chancellor’s Oath and the Rule of Law — [Derek Twigg in the Chair] (14 Oct 2020)

Joanna Cherry: yet to be replaced. The Advocate General for Scotland tendered his resignation in the wake of the statement by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland that the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill would “break international law in a very specific and limited way.”—[Official Report, 8 September 2020; Vol. 679, c. 509.] Of course, that admission was elicited from him by the...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill (5 Oct 2020)

Richard Thomson: Allow me to begin by placing on the record my party’s gratitude to the agencies covered by the Bill for the work they do to keep all of us safe, and expressing our understanding and appreciation that in carrying out that work, there are circumstances where the use of a covert human intelligence source may be necessary. We accept that it can be legitimate to perpetuate a harm in order to...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (31 Oct 2018)

Earl Howe: ...That is the point that I urge noble Lords to focus on in this debate. A key aspect of the review of our terrorism laws announced by the Prime Minister following last year’s attacks, of which the Bill is the product, was looking again at the courts’ sentencing powers to ensure that they are sufficient to respond to the threat and keep the public safe. The clear conclusion was that...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, this Bill is an essential addition to the Modern Slavery Act, a measure which has already been a great success thanks to the support of many people, not least the Prime Minister herself. I shall begin with a brief overview of what my Bill does before moving on to explain why I believe these new measures are necessary. My Bill would amend the Modern Slavery Act with two primary...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Committee (28 Jun 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: a big burden. It could also, of course, further disadvantage London as a centre for the art and antiquities trade—that would be a perverse effect. Secondly, I would like to touch on the human rights issue, which has not been given particular prominence. We are concerned that this amendment would infringe Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights because the collection and...

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (15 May 2012)

Lord McNally: the two years since. However, that sadness is tinged with pleasure that my new oppo will be the noble Lord, Lord Beecham. I think that we had already fully bonded during the passage of the LASPO Bill, but I very much look forward to working with him in the time ahead. I am fully aware, and the House will understand, that noble Lords will not try to cover the waterfront in their...

Law Commission Report (Child Deaths) (22 Oct 2003)

Desmond Turner: ...and rules of evidence had prevented a successful prosecution. The Home Secretary was sympathetic and promised that he would refer the case. He then referred it to Lord Justice Auld, who was conducting a review of the judicial system. It was later referred to the Law Commission for consideration. After years of earnest deliberation, we finally have the commission's report. The National...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Covert Human Intelligence Sources: Code of Practice) Order 2002 (18 Jul 2002)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: .... One of the issues raised in the debate on the legislation was whether the codes would be duly, comprehensively and properly observed, however well they looked on the page. When we debated the Bill, there was a general lack of confidence that the resources would be made available to allow it to work properly. Now, there is serious doubt—in the mind of those on these Benches, at any...

Scottish Parliament: Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 18 (7 Sep 2000)

Christine Grahame: ...any ongoing or future operation;" if it carried "a significant risk of compromise to the techniques used in ongoing or future operations, or the general capabilities of the police or the National Criminal Intelligence Service to carry out such operations;" if it carried "a significant risk to the personal safety of— (i) any person authorised to carry out surveillance; (ii) any covert...

Scottish Parliament: Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 1 — Conduct to which this Act applies (7 Sep 2000)

Angus MacKay: ...the amendments. Law enforcement agencies regularly rely on information volunteered to them by members of the public with no expectation of reward. In our view, it is important that that useful source of information should not be fettered. It is therefore not our intention that those who carry out such activities, which Christine Grahame described, should fall within the definition of a...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill (28 Jun 2000)

Lord Bach: ..., Lord McNally, of the body in question. Our first view is that it is not a public authority. If we are wrong, what I am about to say does not apply, because it would be a public authority and thus covered by Part II. This is the first time such surveillance, whether done privately or publicly, has been regulated. This is so to the extent that named public authorities will have the power...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill (25 May 2000)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I beg to move that the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill be now read a second time. I commend the Bill to your Lordships and in doing so take the opportunity to explain the thinking of the Government in bring it forward and, more particularly, their thinking in relation to some of the considerations highlighted in another place. First, I have seen it said that this is a...

Orders of the Day — Lockerbie (23 Jul 1997)

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...of service men in the American forces in the Rhine army were taken off the pre-Christmas flight. Places became available and those were taken mostly by students—the young Flora Swire, the young Bill Cadman, Pamela Dix's brother, Helga Mosey and, crucially, 32 students of the university of Rochester, New York. Had it been suggested that during the changing presidency in America—it was...

Orders of the Day — Security Service Bill (10 Jan 1996)

Mr Rupert Allason: ...that has been in existence since 1909, with a fascinating history, is the appropriate organisation to deal with crime on that scale. First, I ask: what is the catalyst, the Incentive, for the Bill? I recall asking in 1989 what the catalyst was for the Security Service Bill, as it then was. The question was shrugged off, and it was suggested to me that it was unpatriotic to inquire why a...
