Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Charitable Dispositions for Periods Which Cannot Exceed Three Years (3 Jun 1980)

Douglas Hogg: ..., I must tell him that I disagree considerably with what he has said to the Committee tonight. Perhaps I should declare an interest. It will not surprise any hon. Member to know that I went to a fee-paying school or that I intend to send my children to a fee-paying school. If that be an interest, I declare it. I think that the amendment proposed by the right hon. Gentleman is...

Orders of the Day — Gaelic (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (13 Feb 1981)

Douglas Hogg: The fees in some cases are far too great. I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his comment. But the point is that for all the parties to the litigation it is a frustrating, a time-consuming and a complicated process. We cannot ignore that aspect. In giving the right to a person to speak Gaelic we are imposing a burden on everybody else—and for what purpose? There will be nobody in those...

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Douglas Hogg: Will my hon. Friend clarify one point? Under clause 3 of his Bill the setting of the level of the licence fee is a matter for the local authority. How does that tie up with legislation under which the Secretary of State imposes, or at least sets, the licence fee? How do the two marry?

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Douglas Hogg: What about the Minister's power? He already has the power to set the licence fee. How do the proposals marry?

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Douglas Hogg: The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food sets the fees.

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Douglas Hogg: Is it not also a fact that under the Bill a local authority would be able not to charge any fee at all? As a result of other enactments repealed by the Bill, is there not a chance that no dog licence fee whatever would be raised?

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Douglas Hogg: ...such as mine may not be included. Therefore, I hope that the House will forgive me if I indicate broadly where the Bill must be improved. The curious effect of clause 3, which deals with licence fees, will be to remove the general liability to pay a dog licence fee and to leave only such a liability or obligation as the local authority may choose to impose. The bizarre effect is that...

Orders of the Day — Building (Prescribed Fees) (24 Jun 1982)

Douglas Hogg: I apologise for the fact that I was not here to hear my hon. Friend's opening speech. There is one point that troubles me. If one looks at inspection fees for small garages and car parks, one finds that one is dealing with a very modest fee. My concern is that, as there is no obvious sanction for the payment of this fee and as the amount is so small that it would not justify recovery...

Orders of the Day — Building (Prescribed Fees) (24 Jun 1982)

Douglas Hogg: ...Front Bench spokesmen for not having heard their speeches, because the debate started sooner than I expected. Secondly, I welcome the drafting of regulation 14. It is vitally important to link the fees with the actual costs incurred by the person carrying out the work, because that ensures that the do-it-yourself person does not have to pay on an assessed fee, based on what contractors...

Legal Aid and Advice (19 Nov 1984)

Douglas Hogg: I hope that I shall not fall foul of you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, during my observations on the regulations. With the hon. and learned Member for Montgomery (Mr. Carlile), I support the uprating and feel it would be rather churlish to be too critical of it. However, there are several questions that the Solicitor-General might wish to answer regarding the legal aid regulations. The first point...

Legal Aid and Advice (19 Nov 1984)

Douglas Hogg: A contingency fee fund.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Deposit by Candidates at Parliamentary Elections (14 Feb 1985)

Douglas Hogg: My hon. Friend has had a most ingenious idea, but will he consider one drawback? He is talking about a registration fee which he suggests is a sort of collective deposit. However, I think that he will agree that the registration fee would probably not be fixed by statute, whether primary or secondary legislation. If that is right, who will set the registration fee? Assuming that it is done...

Firearms (Fees) (25 Jun 1986)

Douglas Hogg: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is being suggested, and it has not yet been gainsaid, that these systems and fees can be used as a method of controlling the possession of firearms. That is manifestly correct; they can be so used. Surely we are entitled to debate the proposition that fees should he used as a method of controlling their possession.

Firearms (Fees) (25 Jun 1986)

Douglas Hogg: The hon. Member is being very candid, and we are grateful for that. As I understand him, he is saying that he and his party would greatly increase shotgun certificate fees to control the possession of shotguns.

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,...

Firearms (Fees) (25 Jun 1986)

Douglas Hogg: I was merely pointing out that the people of Lincolnshire have quite a lot that they are fed up about. They would be even more fed up if there were an increase in shotgun certificate fees. I welcome that part of my hon. Friend's statement.

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...

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...

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 — 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....
