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.

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.

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...

Legal Aid and Advice (19 Nov 1984)

Douglas Hogg: A contingency fee fund.

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...

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...

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...

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

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?

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...

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...
