Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (17 Jan 2018)

Viscount Hailsham: .... We have known each other for almost 60 years. I would no doubt be very content to let him have those powers. But then I ask myself whether I would want to give those powers to Mr McDonnell or Jeremy Corbyn. I suspect that nobody in your Lordships’ House tonight would wish to do that—certainly not the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, very sensible fellow that he is. I suspect that we would be...

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

Douglas Hogg: Before I deal with the tightly drafted new clause tabled in the other place, I want to build on what the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) said. I entirely agree with his underlying belief that when the agents of the state have caused deaths, it is essential that the surrounding facts are made apparent, through inquests and to the families. In Committee, I deeply opposed the...

Orders of the Day: Clause 65 — Certificate requiring inquest to be held without a jury: England and Wales (10 Jun 2008)

Douglas Hogg: Is there not a third point, which was touched on by the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn)? The Secretary of State can revoke an appointment. As such a revocation would be profoundly damaging to the career prospects and reputation of a specially appointed coroner, it might well concentrate his mind in favour of the Government.

Opposition Parties (Financial Assistance) (8 Feb 2006)

Douglas Hogg: I shall be brief, as I know that other right hon. and hon. Members want to speak. I find myself in agreement with some of what the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) has said. I make a distinction between the motion dealing with Short money—"Hoon" money—and that dealing with allowances. I will not support the former—indeed, I will oppose it—for the reason pointed out by...

Opposition Parties (Financial Assistance) (8 Feb 2006)

Douglas Hogg: The hon. Gentleman, with whom I very much agree, might wish to point out to the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) that paragraph 6 of the 1975 resolution requires the parties to certify "that the expenses in respect of which assistance is claimed have been incurred exclusively in relation to that party's Parliamentary business." There is, therefore, the real possibility that...

Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security (25 Feb 2004)

Douglas Hogg: Has not the hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) made a serious point? If the right hon. Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr. Denham) reads paragraph 200 of the Newton report, he will find that the committee expresses great concern about the fact that there is no continuing supervision of each case to determine whether continued detention is just. In other words, Lord Newton says...

Orders of the Day — Fire Services Bill: Title (3 Jun 2003)

Douglas Hogg: The hon. Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) has expressed his opposition to the Bill. I agree with him, but I must say that my process of reasoning is not exactly the same. He knows that we agree quite often, which must distress us both. We agreed on Iraq, for example, but that is by the way, as we are dealing with the Fire Services Bill. I do not believe that the Bill should secure...
