Lord Falconer of Thoroton: ...-third of victims took the view that they would not report a crime again because of the experience they had had in the criminal justice system.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: New Clause 3 - Restriction on evidence or questions about complainant's sexual history (5 Jul 2021)

David Lammy: ...explained that one of their reasons for rejecting our amendment was because they did not agree with statutory minimum sentences, yet clause 100 of this Bill creates a statutory minimum sentence for repeat offenders of certain crimes, including drug offences and burglaries.

End-to-end Rape Review - Statement (22 Jun 2021)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I turn first to the points raised by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer of Thoroton. First, I should repeat the apology that the Lord Chancellor gave in the other place yesterday, setting out by reference the reasons why he gave it, given the time.

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ...director of a public company that was the subject of what is known as a dawn raid. My chairman was rung at 8.30 am by the chairman of a major competitor to say that, overnight, it had purchased 28% of our share capital from our investors.

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (9 Mar 2021)

Baroness Goldie: ...to unfair trials. However, we are seeking to highlight not only the difficulties but the adverse impacts on our personnel of pursuing allegations of historical criminal offences with protracted and repeated investigations.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (2 Mar 2021)

Paula Bradley: ...Committee for Communities would work closely with the Department to achieve all that it could, whatever its budget allocation. However, now that we have had two briefing sessions with officials, on 28 January and 4 February, it is not an overstatement to say that the Committee is dismayed at the allocations for Communities in the draft Budget for 2021-22; in fact, in some cases, the...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Baroness Barker: .... A classic campaign identifies a minority group—preferably one about which the majority population knows little—ascribes to it characteristics and motivations which make it a threat and repeats those assertions, preferably with the backing of a neutral body or experts, over and over until they become received wisdom. It is what happened to migrant communities in the UK in the 1970s...

Lord Triesman: ...maternity rights. I always supported the rights demanded by the LGBT campaigners for same-sex marriage, adoption and many other entitlements to equality.

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 146 (8 Feb 2021)

Lord Paddick: ...misogynistic crimes that, in the opinion of the police, have also involved domestic abuse. As my noble friend Lady Burt said, the amendment defines “sex” as having the same meaning as in Section 11 of the Equality Act 2010. The noble Lord, Lord Russell of Liverpool, referred to a tragic case of repeat domestic abuse that resulted in murder. The failure to identify repeat domestic abuse...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 6 (18 Nov 2020)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...It seeks to clarify the meaning of Clause 5(3), regarding the effect of the statutory requirement under Clause 6. It should have read, just for greater clarification, “A relevant requirement (see section 6) is of no effect in the destination part but only if, and to the extent that”. That is a compromise we reached for greater understanding of the text. The effect of Clause 5(3) will...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints (4 Nov 2020)

Andy Wightman: ...frankness could be compromised to the detriment of good government. In recent years, the Government has refused to publish legal advice on the legality of a second independence referendum without a section 30 order, and it has refused, in response to requests from the Law Society of Scotland, to publish its legal advice in relation to the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity)...

Coronavirus Act 2020: Temporary Provisions - Motion to Take Note (28 Sep 2020)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...and were intended to authorise only provisions which were “urgent yet minor in scope and effect”?
