Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The Government are committed to improving support and services for victims of crime. We have already made good progress, and work is continuing to ensure that the needs of victims are given the priority they deserve.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: Clearly, the use of technology is essential in improving the efficiency of the court and sentencing processes and in ensuring public confidence in the criminal justice system. We have made great strides in supporting victims through the introduction of the witness support service within the courts. That will be backed up by good technology and we shall continue to roll out the programme in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: It is absolutely essential that there is public confidence in the whole criminal justice system, and I shall certainly undertake to look at the issue raised by my hon. Friend to see whether we can ensure the maintenance of a prompt response when the public contact the police.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The hon. Gentleman is right. We have just completed the review of the sentencing framework proposed by John Halliday, and the consultation on the Auld report on the courts system is currently under way. It is certainly our intention to introduce legislation on both matters in future. We should not forget that we are already making progress to support victims. As the hon. Gentleman will know,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: I shall certainly look into the issues raised by my hon. Friend. We want to ensure that there is a good response from the police so as to maintain public confidence in the service that is being provided. We shall look closely at the matter and if my hon. Friend would like to write to me with the details, I shall certainly consider it further.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: Under the British crime survey, it is my understanding that burglary has fallen during the last period. As a former resident of Sutton Coldfield, I share the hon. Gentleman's concerns about any increases in particular areas. We need to address that as a matter of urgency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Victims of Crime (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend is right. From my constituency experience, I know that the effect of antisocial behaviour has an impact not only on particular neighbourhoods or streets but on the whole community. It has a dramatic impact on the community's view of the criminal justice system. We have to ensure that measures such as antisocial behaviour orders not only tackle the problems in a particular...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Minor Offences (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The Home Secretary regularly meets and corresponds with members of the magistracy to discuss a wide variety of issues, including sentencing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Minor Offences (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The hon. Gentleman does not quote precisely from the guidelines. We have to ensure that the sentencing framework, which is currently under review, suggested in the Halliday report ensures that the offences introduced meet the crime, that custodial sentences are used for those crimes that warrant them and that we have tough and effective community sentences for crimes that warrant such...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Minor Offences (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend makes a very powerful point. As John Halliday made clear in the report, we have to ensure that action is taken to try to stop persistent offenders reoffending. We need a sentencing framework that ensures not only that that can be the case, but that those people who are determined to flout the law in the way that my hon. Friend describes receive the punishment that they clearly...

CCTV: Internet (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: In partnership with industry, the police and children's charities, we have established a taskforce on child protection on the internet. With those partners we share the aims of making the United Kingdom the best and safest place in the world for children to use the internet, and of helping to protect children the world over from abuse fuelled by criminal misuse of new technologies. Backed by...

CCTV: Internet (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am sure that my hon. Friend is aware that the Government work closely with the Internet Watch Foundation and keep its work under review. As a result of lobbying by a number of parties, including the Government, the board of the IWF revisited and revised its policies on 15 November. The result is a recommendation to all internet service providers serving UK customers not to host news groups...

CCTV: Internet (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The Government take child pornography extremely seriously. I can tell the hon. Gentleman, first, that what is illegal offline is illegal online, and we must be diligent in monitoring that. Secondly, we are carefully considering the current offences associated with sex offences, particularly "grooming", to see whether we should introduce a new offence of intent to meet a child for the purpose...

CCTV: Internet (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Clear public awareness of the dangers of the internet and chat rooms is crucial. That is why we are launching the public awareness campaign and will continue to work very closely on education programmes in our schools to ensure that young people are aware of the dangers. On the point about software, programmes are being developed, including so-called walled...

CCTV: Internet (19 Nov 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am sure that, if the hon. Gentleman reads my previous comments, he will see that I have already covered many of the issues that he raises. I repeat that we must ensure the protection of our children while they are using the internet. Any new ideas or initiatives that he feels to be appropriate for the internet taskforce will be considered. The taskforce is chaired by the Under-Secretary of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extradition (17 Dec 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The interdepartmental working group that was set up to review extradition law met recently to consider the responses to the consultation on "The Law on Extradition—A Review", which were published on 24 October. The Government intend to introduce legislation to modernise and simplify our extradition laws in this parliamentary Session.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extradition (17 Dec 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: My understanding is that the House of Lords did not take the view that the hon. Gentleman describes, and that it was on the basis of a technicality that it did not proceed with the scrutiny. As he will know, the European arrest warrant was not adopted at Laeken, and the matter will be further considered through the European Parliament.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extradition (17 Dec 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend is wrong: the proposals do not include euthanasia and abortion. I hope that when we introduce the Bill, she will consider it carefully.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extradition (17 Dec 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: The situation is very clear. We shall wait until the European arrest warrant has been agreed, and then we intend to introduce legislation to effect it. When we do that, the hon. Gentleman will have adequate opportunity to consider the detail.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Extradition (17 Dec 2001)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am tempted by the hon. Gentleman's questions, but I stress that we need to wait until the details of the Bill are published. He will then be able to consider it fully, and I am sure that he will.
