Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 46 - Criminal damage to memorials: mode of trial (27 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Surely when something is stolen, damaged or desecrated, it is about not just its monetary value but the effect on the victim. In this case, the victim could be the children or grandchildren of the person commemorated on that war memorial. A stolen photograph album has no monetary value, but the actual value to the family is very strong.

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: As a former Children’s Minister, I know that there is no direct correlation between funding and outcomes. Indeed, some of the most cost-effective local authorities in terms of children’s services are those that do not use a lot of agency work, which is cheaper than some of the least effective, which tend to spend more in some cases.

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: I understand the hon. Lady’s point, but often it is the local authorities that are failing, with a big backlog of work, that find they cannot recruit, and therefore have to rely on agency social workers and foster carers. That means they are spending a lot more money. Some of the better ones, such as North Yorkshire, have very few agency workers because they can keep it in house and...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: When the hon. Lady talks about poor-quality housing, would she say that some of the appalling housing in Croydon—for example, in the Regina Road block—is an example of the sort of housing that we should be trying to improve?

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 4 - Meaning of dangerous driving: constables etc (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Is the hon. Lady aware that police forces have in place strict guidance on how police officers can use their driving skills? In particular, if a hot pursuit were to put members of the public at risk, they would have to desist from the pursuit.

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 2 - Increase in penalty for assault on emergency worker (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Is it also the case that, because we introduced the ability to appeal against lenient sentences, if judges and magistrates do not use the powers in the Bill available to them, it is open to the Government or law officers to challenge those sentences?

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 1 - Police covenant report (25 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: The hon. Lady certainly lives up to her name by standing up for the victims of abuse and those affected in other ways. The police could perhaps learn lessons in how to deal with some of those problems from GCHQ, many of whose officers, including those working in Scarborough, spend many hours looking at online images of child sexual abuse or terrorism. GCHQ is aware of those problems and is on...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q I shall start with a short question. Which parts of the Bill do you welcome and which parts might need some changes or improvement? Who wants to start?

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q On that point, before we move on to the other witnesses, what is your view on giving the probation officer a power to increase a sentence? We were talking about carrots, but perhaps we should talk about sticks at the same time.

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: I cannot remember who was next.

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q Would you not agree that keeping dangerous, violent or sexual offenders in prison for longer protects the general public?

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witness (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q Good afternoon, Ellie. I would like to ask you about a subject that we discussed in some detail on Tuesday: the policing of demonstrations and the way that demonstrations can be compliant. It seems an area where the law and politics collide quite violently. It appears quite difficult to draft legislation so that those who pretty much know what they want to achieve can do so in a way that...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witness (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q So you have not gone so far as to try to predict how the provisions brought forward by the Government may actually work in practice. It is pretty much, “Let’s suck it and see if it actually does what we want it to do.” Are you saying it is difficult to predict whether these will be effective and whether they will work, or difficult to predict whether the police will be able to use...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Examination of Witness (20 May 2021)

Robert Goodwill: Q Thank you. There are some terms we use in everyday conversation that have specific legal meanings that most members of the public would not be aware of, so could I ask what benefit codifying the common law offence of “public nuisance” into statute brings?
