Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 2 (25 Apr 2023)

Baroness Kidron: also an open question about immersive technologies, whose protocols are still very much in flux. I am concerned that the Government are willing to assert that these environments will meet the bar of user-to-user when those that are still building immersive environments make quite clear that that is not a given. Indeed, later in Committee I will be able to demonstrate that already the...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Apr 2023)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: left to individuals and organisations to try to enforce those regulations, but even when they do, they are met with hurdles. Indeed, United Utilities sought a declaration that would effectively bar people from bringing private claims against water companies that dump sewage into rivers and seas, and it won its case in the Court of Appeal most recently. That has meant that any water...

Universal Jurisdiction (Extension) (25 Apr 2023)

Brendan O'Hara: ...or many, many other places. Many people are working right now on how the UK should change its definition of universal jurisdiction. I put on record my thanks to Dr Ewelina Ochab of the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute for her invaluable assistance in putting the Bill together. I also thank the Clooney Foundation for Justice, which has done an enormous amount of work...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 274 (24 Apr 2023)

the Bishop of Guildford: ...from my original legal training is the landmark decision in Donoghue v Stevenson in 1932, which involved a Mrs May Donoghue discovering a decomposed snail at the bottom of her bottle of ginger beer, and a Mr David Stevenson, the owner of the ginger beer company. This famous snail resulted in a bout of gastroenteritis for Mrs Donoghue and a rather hefty fine for Mr Stevenson, while...

Offenders (Day of Release from Detention) Bill - Second Reading (21 Apr 2023)

Lord McNally: ...vast experience of the system from his long service has a magistrate. In the Minister, we have someone who has served in the criminal justice system at the highest levels of the judiciary and the Bar. So I pass this Bill, with confidence, into their hands. I also join with the noble Lord, Lord Bird, in his calls for a cross-party initiative to cut crime by having in place—both before and...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 257B (20 Apr 2023)

Earl Howe: ...on the issue of housing illegal migrants. As I have said, the power can be used only for Crown development which is of both national importance and needed urgently. As I have said, this is a high bar, and Crown bodies making an application will need to justify that using this route is appropriate. This does not concern any situation that we may currently be facing on illegal migrants. In...

Prepayment Meters: Code of Practice - Question (20 Apr 2023)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: installed. Then when it is installed, which is often with a bailiff, there has to be body camera footage to show that it has been done correctly. The precautionary principle is a very strong bar. If there is any doubt that the consumer is financially vulnerable, cannot pay, and is at risk of being cut off, the meter must not be installed.

Fishing Industry: Visas for Foreign Workers (20 Apr 2023)

Robert Goodwill: their own language. On safety, we need to come up with a solution to the language situation so that we can keep that fish coming in, keep those jobs onshore, and keep Whitby scampi on our pub restaurant menus.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish National Party Finances (20 Apr 2023) relation to the sentencing of young people. Notwithstanding all the good that is in there, the last point that I will make on that sentencing guideline is that it is very clear that there is no bar on imposing a custodial sentence on a young person where the judiciary considers that to be appropriate. However, that must be a decision neither for the First Minister or Government...

Scottish Parliament: Rosebank Oil and Gas Field (20 Apr 2023)

Fergus Ewing: that sacrificing the development of our own gas resource would not only decimate tens of thousands of highly-skilled well-paid jobs in a form of economic masochism that is advocated by the wine-bar revolutionaries in the Green Party but make climate change worse, not better?

Online Safety Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (19 Apr 2023)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ..., are in a dispute with the Home Secretary over just that. Is it really appropriate that this Bill enlists and mandates private social media companies to judge criminality using the incredibly low bar of “reasonable grounds to infer”? It gets even murkier when the legal standard for permissible speech online will be set partly by compelling platforms to remove content that contravenes...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 27 - Power to clarify tax treatment of devolved social security benefitsClause 27 (19 Apr 2023)

Kirsty Blackman: make money from some of the alcohol measures, but there is also a population behaviour change intention behind what they do with tax on spirits and alcohol, particularly the allowance on draught beer. They have different taxes to encourage a change of behaviour, or differential behaviour in people. The Government may intend to use this tax to shift some of the population, but they are...

Litter Action Groups (19 Apr 2023)

Rebecca Pow: ...about the hon. Gentleman’s local group, the Litter Action Group for Ealing Residents, otherwise known as LAGER Can—a nice, easy name to remember. It should not be confused with the all-party beer group, or anything to do with it. That sounds like a really good model, and Cathy, whom he mentioned, should be commended; I share in his comments. We also heard of excellent work done by...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Finances and Wellbeing Economy (19 Apr 2023)

Michael Marra: ...latest bandwagon that is being jumped on will be any more coherent or delivered than any of this Government’s previous attempts. We are being invited to celebrate other broad concepts. The high bar of this Government is to not do ridiculous things, to decide not to continue to do ridiculous things or to decide to pause doing ridiculous things for a short while before starting them again....

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 239A (18 Apr 2023)

Baroness Pinnock: say, has very significant consequences for the whole area. That is because its purpose was to take traffic off what I think is the most congested motorway roundabout in the country, the Chain Bar roundabout at junction 26 of the M62 in West Yorkshire. The removal of that leads to huge consequences for other developments in the area, including the brownfield site but also other...

In-patient Abuse: Autistic People and People with Learning Disabilities (18 Apr 2023)

Barbara Keeley: not an adequate standard. Would it not be a good place to start to say that no one with autism or learning disabilities can be held in a unit that is rated inadequate? That is an incredibly low bar.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 207 (18 Apr 2023)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I was going to make the shortest speech in this debate, but the right reverend Prelate has set such a high bar that I do not think that I can clear it. I have added my name to Amendment 207 moved by the noble Lord, Lord Best, and Amendments 215 and 218 in the name of my noble friend Lord Lansley. The reason why I can be brief is not because the amendments are not important—I think...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Training (13 Apr 2023)

Michael Tomlinson: ...undertake a training contract and/or pupillage across England and Wales with the CPS since 2012. The CPS has extended its post graduate qualification requirements, to include not only the LPC and Bar Qualification, but the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination, which opens a career in law to a broader and more diverse audience.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Plants: Northern Ireland (5 Apr 2023)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: We have removed the requirement for a phytosanitary certificate on the movement of plants and seeds, meaning there will be no bar to plants with soil attached being able to move between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Plants will move under the framework of the £120 a year UK-wide plant passport regime.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Hospitality Industry (4 Apr 2023)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...local partnerships, and improving access to finance. The Government continues to support businesses with their costs, and we are legislating to increase the new Draught Relief from 5% to 9.2% for beer and cider draught products and from 20% to 23% for wine, spirits based and other fermented draught products.
