Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witnesses (29 Oct 2019)

Eleanor Briggs: I have touched on that already. Although we really welcome the duty and see it as a step forward, we think that, as it stands, it is not adequate and will not provide the support that children and young people, and adult victims and perpetrators, need. We welcome the focus in the duty as drafted on children’s support, and we welcome the fact that children’s social care...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Jul 2019)

Mike Schwarz: Yes, it is precisely that: the danger of disparities and distortions, and even confusion, caused by the ramping up—that is not a critical comment—of maximum sentencing in one area, which is the domesticated and under-control-of-man area, while leaving well behind the maximum sentence in other areas. As you know, the disparity is between six months in most other areas—in...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Refugee family reunion (5 Mar 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East, along with the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, for raising, through new clause 51, the important issue of refugees’ rights to family reunion. The new clause is designed to allow EEA and Swiss national refugees, including those who are nationals of EEA countries that are not part of the EU, to...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (28 Feb 2019)

Caroline Nokes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I thank the Opposition Members for their contribution to this debate. I put the name of the hon. Member for Torfaen at the top of this sheet of paper, but then I had to add all the other hon. Members because of their detailed and learned comments on legal aid. Amendment 21 and new clause 36 are grouped together because, in essence,...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title. (28 Feb 2019)

Stuart McDonald: We now come to the debate that I think everyone in the Committee has been waiting for—a debate about Scotland and immigration policy. Half the room has left, including my hon. Friend the Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North—I am not taking it personally. I am not aiming to persuade the whole Committee about the merits of full devolution of immigration powers, because I am not a...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Consequential etc provision (26 Feb 2019)

Caroline Nokes: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention. I was about to move on to the consideration of best interests in primary legislation. I hope it will be self-explanatory. The placing in primary legislation of detailed requirements about how to consider the best interests of children may not serve the interests of all children. For some, being reunited with family overseas as quickly as possible...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (12 Feb 2019)

Professor Dame Donna Kinnair: I will just put in that 11% of our registered nurse workforce in the UK are non-EEA nationals and 5% are EEA nationals. So that is a combination of about 90,000 to 120,000 nurses. On the impact of raising the retirement age for nurses, nursing is a very physically demanding job. There is an anticipation—people are already talking about this, but I suspect we...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Meaning of deprivation of liberty (22 Jan 2019)

Alex Norris: I completely agree. To me it is a big, blinking red light that says that perhaps we need to pause and think again. Nothing typifies that more than new clause 1. It is helpful to have a definition in the Bill, and there is broad support for that. I also have some sympathy for its being exclusionary, rather than put in a positive manner, because we know, irrespective of what ends up in the...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Extent, commencement and short title (22 Jan 2019)

Caroline Dinenage: We have to be careful not to conflate our language. There is no intention to save money on the process. We know that if DoLS were implemented correctly all across the country, as they are in the hon. Gentleman’s constituency, the cost would be £2 billion. However, we are not looking to save money here; we are looking to ensure that it is spent more wisely—not on duplication, but in a way...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (22 Jan 2019)

Caroline Dinenage: I thank the hon. Lady for that clarification. I am really grateful for all the interesting case studies and examples set out today. They show the incredible variety of cases, experiences and issues that the Bill needs to encompass, and the challenges of getting it 100% right. That is why we have to be incredibly careful with carte blanche. We think it would only be in very rare cases that it...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (17 Jan 2019)

Alex Norris: I have specific trouble with the word “practicable”. From my time in local government—I know things have not got better in the 18 months since then—I would argue strongly that the current assessment workload is not practicable for the individual. Earlier in our consideration of the Bill, my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak compared social work case loads when he was...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (17 Jan 2019)

Alex Cunningham: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Austin. As I said in a previous sitting, children and young people have always been my focus in politics, and the measures that impact 16 and 17-year-olds are some of the most important in the Bill. As my hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South said, amendment 30 would make provision to enable the parents of a 16 or...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (15 Jan 2019)

I refer again to the recent court case of Y v. Barking and Dagenham, which is the case of a young man who was placed in an inappropriate care home. Initially, his parents were satisfied with the placement, but over time, the quality of his care deteriorated and his health got worse. As constituency MPs who are interested and involved in such matters, other hon. Members will have seen in Care...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (15 Jan 2019)

The average cost of placements in ATUs for people with a learning disability is £3,500 per week, but it can be as high as £13,000 per week, as in the case of Bethany. The average stay in these independent hospitals is five and a half years. Independent hospitals have been shown to have a profound vested interest in detaining people for long periods. The journalist Ian Birrell exposed in The...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 3) Bill: Residence nil-rate band (6 Dec 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is lovely to be able to give my hon. Friend the Member for Norwich South some well earned respite before he leaves the Committee briefly. Opposition amendment 122 would require the Chancellor to publish a review of the impact on inheritance tax revenue of clause 65’s changes to the residence nil-rate band, six months after they are adopted. As we have stated in debates on previous...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 3) Bill: Rates of duty on cider, wine and made-wine (4 Dec 2018)

I now turn to the questions raised by the hon. Member for Bootle in his entertaining speech. I hope, Ms Dorries, that you did not have to reach for a stiff drink in the middle of it, although you might do by the time I have finished. [Laughter.] Well, we are about to talk about the retail prices index and the consumer prices index. The Government have historically used RPI. We have committed...

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Annual report on corrosive substance attacks (11 Sep 2018)

Louise Haigh: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I find it seriously frustrating that so much of the debate focuses on London. As she rightly says, many communities and constituencies outside London have experienced significant increases in youth and serious violence. Only last night, I was at the launch in Sheffield of Operation Fortify, a multi-agency response to tackle youth violence led by the...

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Defence to sale of bladed articles to persons under 18: England and Wales (6 Sep 2018)

Victoria Atkins: It continues to be a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. Police records show that knife crime has increased by 16% and possession offences have increased by 28% in the year ending March 2018. The right hon. Member for East Ham has given us a taste of the devastation that those offences cause to not just the people immediately involved in the aftermath of an attack—families...

Public Bill Committee: Stalking Protection Bill: Applications for orders (9 Jul 2018)

Victoria Atkins: Of course, the statute sets the parameters of the order. It will be for the magistrates court to decide whether the police have met the thresholds in that statute. That is why I think it is important—mindful as we are of the public policy interests of having this order—that we bear in mind that the judicial system has to act with fairness to the victim and the person accused. That is why...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Retention of biometric data for counter-terrorism purposes etc (3 Jul 2018)

Ben Wallace: The amendment would require the Home Secretary to review whether local authorities have sufficient resource and expertise to carry out their duties relating to Prevent. In responding, I will say a little about the work of the Channel programme, on which the Home Office works closely with local authorities to support individuals vulnerable to terrorism, before turning to local authorities’...
