Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill (11 Feb 2020)

Chris Philp: ...wonderful young women, Helen McCourt, 32 years ago at the age of just 22, in the prime of her life with everything to look forward to; and the terrible abuse committed by a nursery teacher, Vanessa George, who abused the trust that was placed in her by parents of tiny children. Yet from these tragic cases, today’s debate shows some good can come. I pay particular tribute to Marie...

Gene Editing - Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness Bakewell: ..., the concern of the HFEA, which requires all such matters to be done under licence. The August 2017 issue of Nature first reported on the American use of gene editing in humans. In response, George Annas, director of the Center for Health Law, Ethics and Human Rights at Boston University School of Public Health declared that “the scientists are out of control.” What makes a big...

Planning System: Gypsies and Travellers — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (29 Jan 2020)

Zarah Sultana: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. I am a new Member and this is my first Westminster Hall debate, so I came this morning with a little trepidation. I have listened with alarm at what the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) and other Conservative Members have said. Gypsies and Traveller communities are not a problem that needs to be tackled, nor should...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Knife Crime: Knife Crime (24 Jan 2020)

Jennette Arnold: ...Government over the last three and a half years. That means, for example, working with schools to reduce exclusions. That means, for example, making sure there is investment in policing and swifter justice. That means, for example, trying to address the issue of adverse childhood experiences. That means working not just with just faith communities but with civic society as well, to make...

A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Zarah Sultana: ...for people in need of a place to call home. I was just 14 when the global financial crisis struck and reckless bankers sent the economy into free fall. I was still a teenager when David Cameron and George Osborne began to implement their austerity agenda. Now, I know that the convention for maiden speeches is to avoid saying anything that Members opposite will find very disagreeable, but I...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Jan 2020)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...of how these trade-offs will be struck—between fishery concessions and the interests of our financial services sector; between acceptance of some continuing role for the European Court of Justice and insistence on the purity of UK legal sovereignty. Any democratic Government need to be held to account not just once every five years but as they continue to make policy month by month. That...

Business of the House (9 Jan 2020)

Gareth Johnson: The recent treatment of the 19-year-old British national in Ayia Napa and the failures of the judicial process follow on from the failure of the judicial system in Cyprus to bring to justice the killers of my constituent George Low, who was murdered in the same town in 2016. Can we please have a debate on the safety of British subjects visiting Cyprus on holiday and whether any further...

Scottish Parliament: Art in Action Campaign (5 Dec 2019)

Fiona Hyslop: ..., as well as the always-inspiring Glasgow Sculpture Studios. Stuart McMillan talked about RIG Arts and the tobacco warehouse in Greenock. I was very pleased to hear about the opportunity for a George Wyllie exhibition space at the proposed new terminal. I am very supportive of many of the key messages of the art in action campaign. The campaign seeks to highlight the role that art plays in...

Scottish Parliament: Purple Light-up Campaign (3 Dec 2019)

Stewart Stevenson: ...in 1969, Brian was already in situ, working as a programmer. He had been totally blind since an accident he had at about the age of 12. I was ensconced in a room in a rather cold building in George Street, Edinburgh, learning how to do computer programming. A guy came in—he was always silent—went across the room, sat down at a card punch machine, punched away at his programmes, took...

Scottish Parliament: Nuclear Test Veterans (7 Nov 2019)

George Adam: ...Christmas Island. The irony is not lost on me that we are debating the subject in the week before remembrance Sunday. I never set out to have the debate this week; it is funny how fate makes up for justice in many ways, and balances it. This week, we are remembering people who defended our nation in various conflicts and gave their lives. However, British nuclear test veterans have been...

Retail Crime Prevention — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (5 Nov 2019)

Ruth George: ..., Erdington (Jack Dromey) described the case of Barry, who I know; when he spoke with my hon. Friend at the USDAW conference, it was an incredibly moving experience. The trouble is that our justice system is letting these people down. It is not just that police numbers are decreasing and that the response to incidents is not improving: by the time that I left the union, Barry, who I have...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Oct 2019)

James Dornan: ...end up with an appeals system that is more efficient than the one that we have now. I do not say this lightly—because the committee, like the Government, appreciates the importance of access to justice, especially for smaller enterprises—but, given the evidence that we received, we ask the Government to give careful consideration to introducing fees for appeals. I am delighted that the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Parole (3 Oct 2019)

Luke Pollard: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, whether he has plans to undertake a review of the Parole Board guidance on remorse shown by an offender following the release of Vanessa George.

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: ...society approach; my hon. Friend the Member for Heywood and Middleton (Liz McInnes), who spoke about the impact of domestic violence on children, and my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George), who spoke about reform of universal credit. It was fitting that my hon. Friend the Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) ended with a tribute to charities in this area,...

Vanessa George: Early Release from Prison — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (23 Jul 2019)

Robert Buckland: ...Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard) for securing the debate. I am grateful to him for his remarks. He has approached this issue very constructively, because he seeks a higher degree of justice for the constituents he represents. That is absolutely right and proper. I am also grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for South West Devon (Sir Gary Streeter) for his contribution. He...

NHS and Future Trade Deals — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (22 Jul 2019)

George Hollingbery: ...of my speech that I am about to come on to. I was talking about the £1.3 trillion invested overseas and the fact that ISDS arrangements are incredibly useful in guaranteeing the delivery of justice of some sort for those who have invested under certain terms in less certain legal markets. However, they cannot force the UK to change the way we run our public services. The proof of that—I...

Persecution of Christians Overseas (18 Jul 2019)

David Linden: ...that a quarter of a billion Christians in the top 50 countries for persecution still suffer intolerable levels of persecution and risk simply for following Jesus Christ. Others have already done justice to the report by going through its recommendations, and the Foreign Office should absolutely give them serious consideration. I want to focus on where we go now and how the British...

Criminal Cases Review Commission (17 Jul 2019)

Edward Argar: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir George. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ipswich (Sandy Martin) on securing this debate on the decision-making powers of the Criminal Cases Review Commission—which, like him, I will refer to in my remarks as the CCRC, for brevity’s sake. I also thank the hon. Gentleman for setting out Oliver Campbell’s situation. I know that the...

Detainee Mistreatment: Judge-Led Inquiry: Points of Order (15 Jul 2019)

Luke Pollard: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Late last week, the Parole Board announced that Vanessa George, the prolific serial child abuser from Plymouth, is being released from jail. She abused toddlers and babies at the now closed Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth and then shared these images with a national network of paedophiles for their sexual pleasure, and was rightly jailed. I cannot express...

20 Years of Devolution (11 Jul 2019)

Ronnie Cowan: George Robertson, Labour’s shadow Scottish Secretary in 1997, told Brian Taylor of the BBC that devolution would “kill the SNP stone dead”, and it was imagined that the consequences would surely be that Labour would continue to return a substantial number of MPs from Scotland to Westminster. Labour accepted that the new Parliament should be elected by proportional representation, and...
