Public Bill Committee: National Security Bill: Clause 57 - National security proceedings (8 Sep 2022)

Jess Phillips: ...the individual doing harm, but it is the state that intervenes to protect the parties, or the state that allows cases to be closed. The idea that the state does not have a responsibility for the human rights of a victim of crime such as this when it comes to how they are treated when they try to interact with the state is, I am afraid, for the birds. Almost every single rape victim I have...

Metropolitan Police: Misogyny and Sexual Harassment — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (8 Mar 2022)

Nadia Whittome: ...who were gathering on Clapham Common to mourn her death. There were appalling acts of institutional misogyny in the case of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman, and there have been many others. For over a year, I have been calling for an independent statutory inquiry into misogyny in the Met police. I hope the Minister will commit to that today. We should be limiting the powers of the police,...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 52 (2 Mar 2022)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...law enforcement, border guards, immigration officials and prosecutors, to tackle organised crime groups involved in people smuggling. The task force is currently working with partners in some 17 source and transit countries. Additionally, there are already agreements in place in order to tackle smuggling and irregular migration. For example, in November last year the Prime Minister signed...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 36 (1 Feb 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ...-ranging and powerful debate. We did perhaps stray slightly off the subject of the amendments, and some of the debate has bled into the next group and was, I suppose, more philosophical, about the Bill in general. I will confine my remarks to the amendments, if I may, because I know that many of the matters debated will come up again—not in their “proper place”, because that would be...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Criminal Conduct Authorisations) (Amendment) Order 2021 - Motion to Regret (12 Oct 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...right honourable friend James Brokenshire and I worked. I know noble Lords will agree on several aspects of how we worked; we engaged extensively across both Houses, and we saw compliance with the Human Rights Act as central to the Bill—as my noble and learned friend Lord Mackay just mentioned—and safeguards as incredibly important to it. As an earlier speaker said, it puts beyond...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Court Bill: New Clause 1 - Harassment in a public place (5 Jul 2021)

Harriet Harman: ...person, from a motor vehicle while it is in a street or public place, or in a street or public place while in the immediate vicinity of a motor vehicle that they have just got out of, to engage in conduct which amounts to harassment in such manner or in such circumstances as to be likely to cause annoyance, alarm, distress, or nuisance to any other person. (2) A person guilty of an offence...

Rights to Protest — [James Gray in the Chair] (26 Apr 2021)

Kim Johnson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Gray. I am pleased to contribute to this important debate as, like other Members, I have received a high number of emails about the Bill. I also dissociate myself from the derogatory comments made by the hon. Member for Stockton South (Matt Vickers). Liverpool has a long history of peaceful protests and campaigns for social justice. The...

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill - Report: Amendment 14 (3 Mar 2021)

Lord Anderson of Ipswich: My Lords, nostalgia is the theme of the Government’s amendments in this group, because each of them takes us back to the wording of the original TPIM Act 2011. I am nostalgic enough for those days to have put my name to both amendments. Amendment 14 on the standard of proof, in the name of the Minister, is a tribute to those noble Lords from all parts of the House who spoke so compellingly...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: After Clause 2 - Criminal injuries compensation (24 Feb 2021)

Julian Lewis: Right from the outset, the Intelligence and Security Committee has supported the principle behind the Bill, although we have also welcomed attempts by Members in both Houses to improve it. It is a very important Bill. Covert human intelligence sources or agents provide vital information to assist the security and intelligence agencies in their investigations. They save lives. As the head of...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendment: Motion A (9 Feb 2021)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, I will speak to the two Motions on which the House will divide. Motion B asks that this House do not insist on its Amendment 2, which placed in the Bill a list of offences that a criminal conduct authorisation could not authorise. This amendment was suggested by the Joint Committee on Human Rights and was championed by the noble Baroness, Lady Massey of Darwen, and the noble Lord,...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 80 (1 Feb 2021)

Lord Paddick: ...and Disorder Act 1998—in whose area it appears to the prosecution that the defendant lives is consulted before making an application for a knife crime prevention order. Why not have that in this Bill and why not, as Amendment 80 suggests, consult the probation service in relation to adult offenders? Can the Minister yet again explain the inconsistency in approach between this Bill and...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: Clause 1 - Authorisation of Criminal Conduct (27 Jan 2021)

Alistair Carmichael: ...again unwell. No Member of the House would not concur in sending him the very best of wishes. I thank their lordships in the other place for the manner in which they have further scrutinised the Bill. They did so in a typically thoughtful and reasoned manner, and I invite the Solicitor General to consider the nature of those who have sent us these amendments. They include Lord Anderson of...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 17 - Laying before Parliament (26 Jan 2021)

Kevan Jones: My hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester said that we were going over old ground, and to a certain extent we are because some of the amendments reflect those that I moved last week. May I say at the outset, Mr Hollobone, that the Minister has been an exemplar in engaging with and briefing the ISC? He has set something of a precedent; usually we have only Cabinet Ministers or Prime...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 12 (13 Jan 2021)

Lord Paddick: ..., where the ends do not justify the means, in the same way that using children as informants or agents is difficult to justify under any circumstances. Regrettably, banning the use of children as covert human intelligence sources is outside the scope of the Bill. He went on to recall the contribution of the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, who suggested as an alternative to using children...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 5 (11 Jan 2021)

Lord Rosser: Amendments 5 and 23, tabled by my noble friend Lord Dubs, provide for prior judicial oversight. They have the Opposition’s support. A criminal conduct authorisation would not have effect until approved by a judicial commissioner, unless it was urgent, in which case it would come into effect immediately but with the proviso that it must receive judicial approval within 48 hours. Amendment 17...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (11 Jan 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this debate, which I think has gone on now for over two and a half hours, signalling the importance of this subject and this Bill. The noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, started off by really pressing the importance of parliamentary democracy and the rule of law. She was, of course, supported in that endeavour by the noble Baronesses,...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 75A (10 Dec 2020)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord King of Bridgwater, with whom I completely agree on maintaining the status quo on the involvement of covert human intelligence sources and the ability of the police and security services to authorise these people to engage in crime. I have no argument with him on those issues. But, as the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, said, the...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 43 (3 Dec 2020)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am going to try not to repeat comments made by colleagues already. However, I feel it is important to put on the record some of my huge misgivings about what this Bill does in relation to children and vulnerable individuals. I wholeheartedly support the arguments put forward in other amendments in this group, especially when we are talking about children—whether we call them...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 34 (3 Dec 2020)

Lord Rosser: There are a number of amendments in this group relating to human rights. They variously provide that a criminal conduct authorisation: may not authorise activity that would be incompatible with convention rights; may not authorise murder, torture or rape, or a person under the age of 18 to engage in criminal conduct; cannot authorise causing death or grievous bodily harm, sexual violation or...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (1 Dec 2020)

Lord Stewart of Dirleton: ..., perhaps I may begin by discussing the question of the test of necessity and proportionality. That test is well recognised and understood in investigatory powers legislation. The drafting in the Bill is consistent with the existing legal framework within which it will be incorporated. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Anderson of Ipswich, for his amendment which seeks to add a requirement for...
