Business of the House (11 Jul 1996)

Mr John Marshall: May I ask my right hon. Friend for an urgent debate on early-day motion 1106? [That this House expresses profound concern about the fate of Mr. Robert Hussein following the judgments of a religious court in Kuwait that he is an apostate and therefore subject to a death penalty; calls on Her Majesty's Government to continue to press the Kuwait Government to adhere to international legal...

Prayers: Bolton Magistrates Court (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Peter Thurnham: I am most grateful for this opportunity to raise an important matter in my constituency: the need for new magistrates courts in Bolton. Whenever I have conducted an opinion poll in my constituency, law and order has always come out as my constituents' top concern and therefore the efficient administration of justice in Bolton is of the highest priority. The Government admitted the need for...

New clause 21: Binding Nature of Provisions (8 Jul 1996)

Mr Robert Jones: an adjudicator. Perhaps they recognise that the dispute concerns a point of law that is fundamental to the interpretation of the contract, and that it is sensible to take the dispute straight to court. There is no reason why they should not be allowed to make and rely on an agreement to that effect. I think that what the hon. Member for Greenwich is worried about is people signing away...

Schedule 2: 'Further restrictions on holding of licences of different descriptions (2 Jul 1996)

Mr Robert Maclennan: ...incomprehensible in terms of the sequence of historical events—it does not lie squarely with what he said before—and makes no sense in English. I cannot imagine how it could be interpreted by a court of law. I hope that the hon. Member for North Thanet has been drumming up some support for his amendment among his hon. Friends, and I hope that the Minister has had time to take into...

Orders of the Day — Parliamentary Proceedings (Welsh) (5 Jun 1996)

Sir John Morris: ...conceived by the joint efforts of Ness Edwards—who was the Member of Parliament for Caerphilly and the father of my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mrs. Golding) —and Goronwy Roberts, the Member of Parliament for Caernarfon. It is right that, while English should remain the language of this House, the Welsh Grand Committee, when sitting in Wales, should be able to hear...

Orders of the Day — Defamation Bill [Lords] (21 May 1996)

Mr Alex Carlile: abolished in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The present law in Scotland allows a dishonest pursuer, as they call him there, or plaintiff, as we call him here, to protect his reputation in court. The judge or jury is not entitled to know that, in truth, he is a dishonest person or a person of bad character. The defence is not allowed to introduce evidence to that effect. The likes...

Bill Presented: Licensing Act 1964 (Amendment) (21 May 1996)

Mr Robert Hughes: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to remove the power of the relevant court to award costs in respect of a decision by licensing justices to grant a justices' licence, in cases where the unsuccessful objector is a properly constituted residents association. The purpose of my Bill is to remove from courts the power to levy costs against those representing residents...

Bill Presented: Licensing Act 1964 (Amendment) (21 May 1996)

Mr. Robert G. Hughes accordingly presented a Bill to remove the power of the relevant court to award costs in respect of a decision by licensing justices to grant a justices' licence, in cases where the unsuccessful objector is a properly constituted residents association: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 12 July and to be printed. [Bill 140.]

Fishery Limits (Amendment): Westminster City Council (14 May 1996)

Mr Robert Hughes: I was in court when the injunction was obtained, and although the case was not won, the point was, because by the time the injunction had been cleared the GLC had been abolished, the law had gone through, and the council could not and did not give the funding out, so the ratepayers got the money back.

New Schedule: Sexual conduct to prejudice of good order and discipline (9 May 1996)

Robert Key: ...that, in the British armed forces, there is a deep and genuine conviction that homosexuals have no place in service life. Other people may not like that attitude, but it is a plain fact. The courts may not like it, and they may seek to change it. My greatest fear is that change may be forced on the services too fast, with all the attendant risks of recrimination, victimisation and real...

Westminster (District Auditor's Report) (9 May 1996)

John Gummer: ...and severally liable for that amount. He has decided not to uphold the objections in respect of Councillor Judith Warner, my hon. Friend the Member for Milton Keynes, South-West (Mr. Legg) and Mr. Robert Lewis. The auditor has now issued his certificate. Those surcharged have 28 days from the date they receive the auditor's statement of reasons to appeal against his decision to the High...

Prayers: Water Meters (8 May 1996)

Mr Robert Jones: restore their water flow within 24 hours. Opposition Members have claimed that the use of the scheme is a ploy by water companies to avoid the time and expense involved in obtaining court orders to disconnect a customer's water supply. That is far from true—disconnections are reserved as an ultimate sanction against customers who can pay but will not pay. I shall repeat one...

Orders of the Day — Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Bill [Lords] (7 May 1996)

Mr Robert Jones: .... We want to see the industry using the opportunity that we are giving it to improve its payment record and to resolve disputes quickly, without dragging them into arbitration or before the courts. We intend the Bill's provision to cover a wide span of the construction industry. After all, that industry asked for the Bill. It desperately wants revised payment arrangements and the ability...

Local Authorities (Trading and Competition Powers) (1 May 1996)

Gordon Prentice: ...narrowly focused. I therefore hope that it will receive all-party support. The form of the Bill has emerged after discussions with the Association of Direct Labour Organisations, its director John Roberts, and others. ADLO has a membership of more than 200 councils nationwide, and they are all crying out for clarification of the law. They tell me that they have to negotiate a legal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Prisons (Illegal Drug Use) (25 Apr 1996)

Robert Key: ...confirm that there is no lack of determination on the part of the Government or the Prison Service to eliminate drugs from prisons? Can she confirm that the root problem is that, as a result of court decisions, personal contact between prisoners and visitors is now compulsory, and that internal body searches are not allowed unless a doctor is present and the prisoner consents, which means...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Entry to Negotiations, Etc) Bill: The Negotiations (22 Apr 1996)

Robert McCartney: ...had been used? To accept in any form that Northern Ireland exists as part of the United Kingdom would be contrary to the claims made in articles 2 and 3 of its constitution, which the Irish Supreme Court has defined as a constitutional imperative.

Prevention of Terrorism (Additional Powers) Bill (Allocation of Time) (2 Apr 1996)

Peter Bottomley: ...principle. I represent part of the borough of Greenwich, which had the experience of the Woolwich pub bomb, and of bombs at Government house, at the entrance to the Royal Artillery barracks and at Court road in Eltham at the Army resettlement offices. People in my constituency and, I am sure, in Tower Hamlets and in many other parts of the country, want to be sure that, in all parts of...

Orders of the Day — City of Westminster Bill [Lords] (20 Mar 1996)

Harry Cohen: clause 9 was given to the council for educational use. I have taken a flexible attitude to the way in which educational benefit can be secured; for some time, the ball has been in the council's court. On 18 December, I met Councillor Robert Moreland and a senior council official. I suggested that the council should come up with a package of benefits for the university, and that it...

Opposition Day: HMSO (Privatisation) (18 Mar 1996)

Robert Jackson: ...Kingdom of large-scale, high value-added commercial publishing operations—whose exports, incidentally, have risen substantially—and which has developed extensive services for users in the courts and elsewhere. This has helped to secure the public interest in the widest and deepest dissemination of legislation and governmental material. However, with the emergence of the three factors...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: European Community Budget (7 Mar 1996)

Mr Robert Sheldon: Is the Minister aware that the European Court of Auditors now has to produce an annual statement of assurance which provides an opportunity to question it rigorously, as the Public Accounts Committee is doing in meeting the individuals concerned? Will he assure the House that the Government will take that process very seriously? It is a new opportunity to press the Court of Auditors about...
