Baroness Goldie: ...works smoothly. On civilians, the DCSU will be staffed and led by service police because, unlike civilian police, they can investigate offences wherever they are committed and use their powers overseas. They are trained and ready to deploy wherever the Armed Forces operate, including in operational theatres. Importantly, the DCSU will have access to civilian expertise by embedding...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 88 - Analysis of information for the purposes of crime prevention or detection (8 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: ...theatre to perform because he has to get the Bill through the House and then get it through the House of Lords, and then back through the House of Commons. As an experienced and seasoned political operator, he will know that it is really wise to make a few strategic concessions to the Opposition to keep them on side. Although he has not revealed that yet by making us any concessions, it...

Labour and Skills Shortages: Temporary Recovery Visa — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (8 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...through recruitment agencies charging fees, leading to migrant workers ending up in illegal debt bondage through having to repay those recruitment fees.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 76 - Power to reject documents for inconsistencies (8 Nov 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Absolutely. That is exactly how we expect it to operate. Once the registrar refuses the document, it will be treated as not having been delivered.

Paul Sweeney: ...time with family and friends, and isolates them from everyday civilian life. However, despite that personal sacrifice, they are often not supported properly when they return from tours of duty overseas or leave the armed forces entirely—often, angry and frustrated. Such individuals are more susceptible than the rest of the population to mental health difficulties, drug and alcohol...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 63 - Authorisation of corporate service providers (3 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...get into the Bill. The provisions set out under clause 63 in proposed new section 1098I of the Companies Act 2006 would enable the Secretary of State to allow foreign corporate service providers to operate in the UK, outside the scope of the UK’s money laundering regulations. There has been such extensive coverage in recent years of the risks that that would entail that I am really quite...

Climate Change and Human Security — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (3 Nov 2022)

Kerry McCarthy: ...and full access to their resources. I appreciate that this is a matter for FCDO, but one way in which the Government could make an immediate impact, if they wanted to, would be to reinstate our overseas aid commitment of 0.7% of GDP. The cut was a stark betrayal of the world’s poorest people, and may well have security consequences. Given our respective briefs, however, I will focus...

National Security - Statement (2 Nov 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ..., voters, candidates, campaigners and poll workers is protected; the regulation of political campaigning must be robust; the impact of disinformation, misinformation and wider information operations is mitigated and minimised.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 14 - Directions to change name: period for compliance (1 Nov 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...computer code. Without the ability to take action to address such names once incorporated, undesirable impacts can go unchecked. A consequential amendment applies this section to provision on overseas companies. Clause 19 complements clause 11 of the Bill. Clause 11 makes it unlawful for a company to be registered with a name that contains or comprises computer code. Clause 19 addresses...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (27 Oct 2022)

Elspeth Berry: The idea is that the John Smiths, the J. Smiths and the Mr Smiths can be linked. Where it is a common name—or an overseas name, where a person like me who was looking at this would not know it was a common name and might assume, “Well, that must be the same person,” when actually it is not, because it is such a common name—it is important to find links. I can see that...

Zimbabwe - Question (27 Oct 2022)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: ...noble Lord. We are concerned that the Private Voluntary Organisations Amendment Bill, if it becomes law and is implemented, could very easily be used to undermine the ability of civil society to operate effectively in Zimbabwe. It also puts at risk its ability to deliver development and humanitarian assistance. We engage very widely, not only with civil society within Zimbabwe and through...

Seafarers’ Wages Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (26 Oct 2022)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...from one point—the point—to another point. It is of great regret that the word “a” crept into the letter, but noble Lords can imagine that that was the overarching ambition: from a point overseas to a point in the UK, but “the harbour” within a place overseas and a place in the UK. Because we have defined it that way, from “the harbour” to “the harbour”, we capture the...

Global Food Security — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (26 Oct 2022)

Preet Kaur Gill: ...crisis is a reminder that island though we are, the greatest challenges facing the world will also reach our shores. In these difficult times, there is cause for solidarity and international co-operation between allies and nations. It is a call that, in times past, Britain has answered proudly. As many colleagues have said today, the suffering across the world is enormous. Labour has been...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 9 - Rules relating to central counterparties and central securities depositories (25 Oct 2022)

Andrew Griffith: ...to them, but we must be collectively careful about the burdens that we place on them and ensure that those are appropriate. On the question of what is systemic and whether it is right to regulate overseas CCPs and CSDs, the thrust of what the Bill tries to achieve, and the broad thrust of the debate, is that those are precisely matters that should be decided by the operationally...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (25 Oct 2022)

...been a clean-up of the market in that space, which is positive. The challenge is that international regulation, and a lot of the recent work we have seen in that space, has driven a lot of overseas exchanges and providers, which might have been operating in a bit of a grey space, shall we say, to suddenly look to become more legitimate and comply because they want to come into the...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Clause 3 - Power to make further transitional amendments (25 Oct 2022)

Under the FSMA model, the Treasury...

Backbench Business: FIFA World Cup 2022 (20 Oct 2022)

Jesse Norman: ...visit and how to get assistance. Of course, there is a lot of good practice already in place from previous major tournaments, particularly Russia in 2018. That includes the importance of close co-operation with partners, such as the football associations and supporters’ representatives. Every event is unique, and my right hon. Friend the Member for Vale of Glamorgan is right to say that...
