Points of Order (23 Mar 2010)

Douglas Hogg: ...Member for Carlisle (Mr. Martlew), whom it concerns. There is, as you know, a planning application in my constituency for intensive dairy production at a place called Nocton. It has aroused intense feelings and opposition, part of which is founded on animal welfare considerations. The hon. Member for Carlisle tabled early-day motion 1037 which addresses the issue both in general and in...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 42 (23 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: I beg to move amendment 142, in clause 42, page 83, line 34, leave out 'eighteen' and insert 'fourteen'. I have a feeling that my hon. Friend the Member for Romford is not going to agree with me on this amendment. I might sound a bit old-fashioned about all this, but I think I had my first gun-a single-barrel shotgun, 16. bore-when I was 10. My father was a lawyer and well acquainted with the...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 42 (23 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: I do not disagree and I will withdraw the amendment, if only because I do not wish to suggest for a moment that there is any dissension on the Conservative Benches. I have a feeling that my hon. Friend the Member for Romford may not agree with me on this issue, in view of what he has said in other debates. As the Conservative party is entirely united on all major issues, this is not a moment...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 39 (23 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: ...that should be dealt with by the magistrates court then prison is not  appropriate, so I am against this so far as the magistrates court is concerned. I have tried to strike it out altogether. I feel the same about the Crown court. I do not think this is the class of offence for which people should be sent to prison. But if I am wrong about that, for goodness’ sake, two years as a...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 39 (23 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: ...imposes sentences of imprisonment, where that is not necessary,  is not a good reason for going on committing the sin. I commend my very modest compromise to the Minister, and hope that he may feel able at least to reflect on it before Report.

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 24 (9 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: Of course, that implies that there has to be a court hearing, and the person concerned would probably feel under an obligation to turn up. If the circumstances are such that the constable does not think it worth going for an order, surely it is not necessary to have a court hearing.

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 22 (9 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: I fancy the Minister feels that he has been well and truly probed by my hon. Friend, so I can be relatively brief. I have a lot of sympathy with the general approach, in that it is desirable to use his amendment to question the contents of the notice. I am not with him all the way; by removing some of the particulars from the notice, he would be going further than I would wish. To start with,...

Public Bill Committee: Crime and Security Bill: Clause 14 (4 Feb 2010)

Douglas Hogg: I shall disappoint you, Mr. Cook, because I do not feel any obligation to speak at great length. Many of the amendments that I tabled in this group were responded to by the rather dense material that the Minister read in the debate on the previous group. You will recall, Mr. Cook, that I said that I would read that dense material and then come to a conclusion. The group of amendments under...

Ambulance Response Times (Local Reporting): Clause 32 — Resignation from the House of Lords (26 Jan 2010)

Douglas Hogg: ...not able to attend the other place for the period of the leave of absence. My hon. Friend and I had the following broad motivations: first, I observe generally that one should encourage peers who feel that they are getting old to take a leave of absence, because there are far too many peers of a certain age in the other place, which is now very heavily populated. As has been said, there...

Ambulance Response Times (Local Reporting): Clause 32 — Resignation from the House of Lords (26 Jan 2010)

Douglas Hogg: Indeed, that is why I originally tabled my own amendment, why I am happy to support the Liberal Democrat amendment and why I feel comfortable with amendments 60 to 66. One could advance several arguments in support of what the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (Mr. Heath) has just said. First, one would not be doing an injustice to any peer, because under the current composition of the...

Health and Safety (Company Director Liability): Clause 24 — Treaties to be laid before Parliament before ratification (19 Jan 2010)

Douglas Hogg: ...by Liberal Democrat Members, too. It has some force. I differ on this point from my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Torridge and West Devon (Mr. Cox), as I do not think that we should feel obliged to submit every single transfer of competence to a referendum. We are talking about substantial competences, and my hon. and learned Friend used the phrase himself. The only issue that I...

Health and Safety (Company Director Liability): Clause 24 — Treaties to be laid before Parliament before ratification (19 Jan 2010)

Douglas Hogg: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. He will know that I do not normally encourage him to go on longer than he feels that he wants to, but I seek his view on one matter. He has made an important point about memorandums of understanding falling outside the definition of a treaty. He also said the same thing about missile siting agreements. However, on the face of it-I am not an international...

Bill Presented — Sustainable Energy (Local Plans) Bill: Clause 7 — Investigations (1 Jul 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...for further consideration—about whether all the protection afforded by new clause 11 should apply to both stages or one stage. That is a matter on which there needs to be some reflection. My feeling, at this stage, is that the full panoply of the protections should apply to the hearing of the representations by IPSA, and that there should be a lesser stage of protection relating to the...

Pension Credit and Personal Expense Allowance (Duty of Consultation and Review): Clause 103 — Sentencing guidelines (24 Mar 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...before that. For example, indeterminate sentences of imprisonment for public protection and extended sentences of various kinds are extraordinarily difficult for the judges to determine. My own feeling is that they are also largely unjust in their implication and I dislike them very much. I also feel that Parliament needs to be—

Pension Credit and Personal Expense Allowance (Duty of Consultation and Review): Clause 103 — Sentencing guidelines (24 Mar 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...not put in statute the requirement that a judge should follow the guidelines set out by the council, hence my amendments. I believe the requirement should be that the judge take account of, but not feel obliged to follow, the prescriptive guidelines. I accept that the council guidelines can bring about greater consistency. That is important, and to that extent I welcome the Bill's...

Bill Presented: New Clause 14 — Inquests in camera (23 Mar 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...I seem to be the right hon. Gentleman's only friend in this place on this occasion. It is important that the House should know what is meant by the phrase, "the court is satisfied". I cannot help feeling that the House would be much happier if it thought that the court had to be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt. If he would include that provision in the Bill, I suspect that he might get...

Bill Presented: Coroners and Justice Bill (Programme) (No. 3) (23 Mar 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...only a few have been selected—but if debate is unnaturally and too tightly constrained, right hon. and hon. Members are shut out and a Bill is not properly discussed at all. I suggest that any feeling of outrage should be compounded by two further considerations. We all know that the business of the House has been extraordinarily light for the last few weeks. We need only look at the...

Bill Presented: Coroners and Justice Bill (Programme) (No. 3) (23 Mar 2009)

Douglas Hogg: ...business. I understand that the Prime Minister felt obliged to make a statement and it was a remarkable performance. The poor fellow, I fear he is getting very tired, so I suppose one ought to feel sorry for him. However, there was no need for the Justice Secretary to come here today. I entirely agree with my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Harborough that, assuming it was not for...

Orders of the Day: Counter-Terrorism Bill (19 Nov 2008)

Douglas Hogg: ...all—probably all—of those measures could properly be incorporated into the new clause. If that happened, the measure would deal with most of the Minister's anxieties. It would also address the feeling around the Chamber that intercept evidence should be used in appropriate cases, so that the families and everybody else can have as many facts as are available surrounding a death.

Orders of the Day: Counter-Terrorism Bill (19 Nov 2008)

Douglas Hogg: ...of State because, at the end of the day, we need to cling to the principle that once power is given to any official or to the Executive, it is certain to be abused on occasion. Therefore I do not feel comfortable with my hon. Friend's amendment and am not minded to vote for it if he presses it to a Division. That takes us to the Lords amendment. Again, I confess to being torn. There are...
