Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill: New Clause 10 (10 Jul 2007)

Douglas Hogg: ...notice of that. Those of us who are on pay-as-you-earn—all of us here are—or who are in receipt of regular dividend income, or who have to account to the Revenue for the value added tax on all fees received, as I do as a part-time barrister, have no great difficulty in establishing the sources of our income and we have relevant documents to prove it. However, we will see that another...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Dentistry (18 Apr 2006)

Douglas Hogg: ..., and that there are 115,000 individuals who do not have access to a dentist? Given that, will she reconsider her rejection of my previous proposal that her Department should pay private dental fees, subject to a cap, where no NHS dentist is available?

Department of Health: Dental Services (7 Mar 2006)

Douglas Hogg: ...that there is a precedent for the national health service paying for operations that cannot be performed within it within a stated time, why is the same principle not applied to private dental fees incurred by patients who cannot get NHS dentistry because it is not available? Why, in those circumstances, does not the NHS pay those private dental fees?

Oral Answers to Questions — Constitutional Affairs: Barristers (Strike Action) (18 Oct 2005)

Douglas Hogg: ...understand that, although many of us do not support the strike, many members of the junior Bar are paid no more than £46 a day for going into court? Will she take account of their expenses? The fee is derisory and the matter should be addressed with all possible speed.

Orders of the Day — Constitutional Reform Bill [Lords] (17 Jan 2005)

Douglas Hogg: On the point about rising court fees, they have been raised substantially at county court level and in the High Court, and are a considerable disincentive to litigation.

Courts Bill [Lords] (9 Jun 2003)

Douglas Hogg: ...on that. I suspect that there has also been consensus that justice should be affordable. On that point, I am bound to say that I am pretty cautious about clause 92, which deals with the setting of fees. If justice is too expensive, it is not accessible. If you look carefully at clause 92, Madam Deputy Speaker, which I am sure that you have done, you will find that the fees and their scales...

Courts Bill [Lords] (9 Jun 2003)

Douglas Hogg: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the House has little power to control the level of fees prescribed by the Lord Chancellor, not least because the order is subject only to the negative procedure?

Courts Bill [Lords] (9 Jun 2003)

Douglas Hogg: On the question of fees, which are to be determined exclusively by the Lord Chancellor with the consent of the Treasury, after consultation with the judiciary and others, does my hon. Friend share my concern that there is no apparent duty to consult the users?

Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2001)

Douglas Hogg: ...because the Government are not prepared to put the money into the remuneration of dentists. Whenever I have talked to dentists about why they are not willing to come to Sleaford, it comes down to fees. That is the responsibility of the Government.

Orders of the Day — Social Security Contributions (Share Options) Bill: Interpretation (8 Feb 2001)

Douglas Hogg: I was listening closely to my right hon. Friend. He was speaking about fees.

Legal Aid (4 Mar 1998)

Douglas Hogg: May I welcome the Minister's statement that his Department is looking further at the contingency fee fund concept? Within the profession, there is a feeling that if a choice has to be made between contingency fee funds and conditional fee agreements, there would be a strong preference in favour of the contingency fee fund because it avoids the conflict of interests already referred to and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Chancellor's Department: Legal Aid (21 Jul 1997)

Douglas Hogg: a mistake to introduce legal aid in terms of either promoting a libel case or defending it. That said, will he consider the possibility of alternative funding methods, such as a contingency fee fund? I make a distinction between a contingency fee fund and contingency fees.

Orders of the Day — Malicious Communications Bill: Offence of Sending Letters etc. with Intent to Cause Distress or Anxiety (8 Jul 1988)

Douglas Hogg: ...this matter extremely careful thought—I regret that the hon. Gentleman is not present to hear my response—my concluded view, for which in other circumstances I would charge a substantial fee, is that it is unlikely that increasing the scale from 3 to 4 would have significant resource implications for the Government or private individuals. Government and Parliament can uprate...

Protection of Animals (Amendment) Bill: Offences Relating to Animal Fights (22 Apr 1988)

Douglas Hogg: It is impossible to establish a licensing system without bureaucracy, tests, criteria, people to administer the system, and the payment of fees. Before long there would be a statutory consultative committee, a class 1 certificate, a class 2 certificate and so forth. I understand the hon. Gentleman's point but I recoil from it, having spent many days in the Standing Committee on the Firearms...

Firearms (Amendment) Bill [Money] (21 Jan 1988)

Douglas Hogg: ...approach to the debate. As for the hon. Gentleman's question, the answer is fairly well summarised in the explanatory memorandum. He raised the point about the working party and firearms fees. It is perfectly true that it is intended that the cost of implementing the scheme shall be largely recoverable. We intend to discuss the level of the fees with the shooting interests. Before...

Orders of the Day — Firearms (Amendment) Bill (21 Jan 1988)

Douglas Hogg: In answer to the hon. Gentleman's first question, the provisions on visitors' licences are clearly set out in the Bill, and I recommend that he read it. On the question of licence fees, we intend that the shooting interests should be fully consulted, and that they should play a part in a working party. However, we anticipate that the costs incurred in the licensing regime will be recoverable....

Sporting Events (Safety) (24 Jul 1987)

Douglas Hogg: ...upon to determine it, the courts will have regard not to the form but to the substance, and it is plain that where members of the public are invited to roll up on the day and pay their membership fees at the door, that will almost certainly be treated as a public event to which the regulations will apply, whereas they will not apply to a truly private event. It is a question of substance,...

Orders of the Day — Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Bill [Lords] (30 Mar 1987)

Douglas Hogg: ...The hon. Member for Cambridgeshire, North-East raised the subject of equality, as did the hon. Member for Stalybridge and Hyde. It is perfectly true that the Home Office will not set the level of fees. That is a matter for the fire authority, but the Home Office will be giving guidance. As both hon. Members will know, the fire inspectorate is able to nudge and guide to obtain uniformity of...

Orders of the Day — Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Bill [Lords] (30 Mar 1987)

Douglas Hogg: ...for financial charges. It is the Government's policy that, wherever possible, the cost of local authority services should be borne by those who use them. Clause 3 enables fire authorities to charge fees to recover the costs of certification other than the cost of inspection. In substance, the fees will reflect the cost of administrative work such as obtaining further information from...

Firearms (Fees) (25 Jun 1986)

Douglas Hogg: ...again illustrates the unsatisfactory nature of the procedure that we are adopting. One thing is wholly plain — that we have either to accept or reject the order. We cannot amend it, yet the House feels that an increase of 65 per cent. In respect of renewal is unreasonable. It is a great misfortune that we cannot strike out that provision and accept the rest. We are not able to do so,...
