Welfare Reform (Cumbria) (16 Jul 2014)

Jamie Reed: ...and accepted across the House. Those unable to work are disproportionately dependent on benefit rates and therefore, obviously—QED—feel the changes to benefits more acutely than any other section of society. The Government have estimated that, through the introduction of the personal independence payment, the claimant count will fall by 23% compared with the number on disability living...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jun 2014)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...area of law that principally has concerned me over the past 35 years, ever since I was privileged to follow the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, as Treasury Counsel in 1979, before undertaking 28 years of judicial servitude. Necessarily, at Second Reading, one must be selective in one’s focus, and I shall therefore confine myself to comparatively brief comments on four topics...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill (Programme) No. 2: New Clause 14 — Offences committed by disqualified drivers (12 May 2014)

Jeremy Wright: I agree with my hon. Friend that it is important to review all the options. He has already made a powerful case for his preferred option in dealing with repeat offences of driving while disqualified, and I know he will continue to do so. I hope the review will give him and others the opportunity to make the case they wish to make. In view of that, I hope the hon. Member for Hammersmith will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 8 — Welsh rate of income tax (30 Apr 2014)

Christopher Chope: ...is proposed to implement the recommendations of the Silk Commission that the Welsh Government have the power to set different rates of tax for different income bands. Government amendments 22 to 28. Amendment 16, page 12, line 34, after ‘Assembly’, insert ‘and each House of Parliament’. Amendment 6, page 12, line 37, at end add— ‘(2) The Secretary of State shall review...

Care Bill [Lords]: New Clause 8 — CQC thematic review of local authority commissioning practices (10 Mar 2014)

Norman Lamb: ...to the House the excellent review of the duty of candour by Professor Norman Williams and Sir David Dalton, which was published last week. We will consider the recommendations of the review—I repeat that I thought it was excellent—as we develop regulations to implement the duty of candour as a requirement for registration with the CQC. We are also enhancing the professional duty of...

Immigration Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (10 Feb 2014)

Baroness Barker: .... They used, for example, the international passenger survey data. They did not give us any actual new information about use of the NHS by migrants. In the quantitative research, researchers repeatedly put caveats around the findings of their model, saying that, “any point is just a likely value in a plausible range”. That is to say, the much publicised figure of £1.76 billion, which...

Immigration Bill: New Clause 11 — Supplementary provision (30 Jan 2014)

Sarah Teather: ..., and a great deal of good and innovative thinking has been happening. It would be fantastic if good practice in one area of the Home Office was to extend to other areas of the Department. A 28-day limit would sharpen the mind of the Home Office and encourage it to get on and do that. Amendment 57 would ensure that people had an opportunity to challenge their detention by ensuring that it...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (18 Dec 2013)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...that there is a scientific means of arriving at a figure, any more than I suspect the Labour Government used a scientific method to reach their figures for spending limits and thresholds in 2000. I repeat that the balance we seek is one that will secure greater transparency but not lead to unnecessary regulation, particularly taking into account the concerns that have been expressed by a...

House of Lords: Size — Motion to Take Note (12 Dec 2013)

Lord Dykes: ...the fact that this Chamber is literally too large with some calmness at the moment—although I hope not too much. It is around the size of the entire European Parliament, which represents 28 member states. The latest text of the Bill, which began its Second Reading before June 2010, in February 2009, added the helpful provision of non-attendance producing disqualification. Whatever the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: "Restricted premises orders: no tobacco in retail area (3 Dec 2013)

Roy Beggs: ...in Scotland and, I believe, the Irish Republic, a very lenient sentence of a few days has been issued.  That is no real penalty.  So, I certainly support the concept of having a minimum period of 28 days and a maximum period of three years for very severe or repeat offences; that is appropriate.  It is important to give a message that this is important in protecting the health of our...

Energy Bill — Third Reading (19 Nov 2013)

Baroness Verma: ...would undertake reporting measures once any decarbonisation target range had been set. This would supplement those reporting measures that are already included within Part 1 of the Bill. I repeat what I said on Report, which was that, “where carbon intensity is reported to have increased year on year for three consecutive years, the Government will explain the reasons why, and, where...

Backbench Business — Private Members’ Bills: Cycling (2 Sep 2013)

Maria Eagle: ...for cycling infrastructure. The priority for investment to support cycling must be dedicated separated infrastructure to create safe routes. The focus has too often been on painting a thin section at the side of the road a different colour. Genuinely separated cycle routes are vital not only to improve safety but, as we have heard from many hon. Members, to build confidence and to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Jul 2013)

the Bishop of Leicester: ...so-called protections for schools or teachers from the need to promote same-sex marriage. Many in this Chamber and outside, as I know from many conversations, still remain haunted by the ghosts of Section 28. To anyone who is feeling so haunted this evening, I offer the rites of exorcism. Let me be crystal clear: this amendment is categorically not about turning back the clock to those...

Opposition Day — [Unallotted Day] — Disabled People (10 Jul 2013)

Michael Meacher: ...cumulative benefit changes. If Scope and Demos can do a cumulative impact assessment, why cannot the Government? That is a staggering expropriation from arguably the most deprived and disadvantaged section of the entire population and it is perhaps worth rehearsing quickly the range of the cumulative impact: the incapacity benefit reassessment; the reassessment of the personal independence...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (24 Jun 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: ...and others, for addressing those concerns, which are well argued and strongly felt. Our amendment is equally strongly felt, but it is much narrower in its remit. It is more specific and relates to Section 403 of the Education Act 1996. We hope that, because of the narrowness of its focus, it will be acceptable to the Government. I can assure them that they have nothing to lose by accepting...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Jun 2013)

Baroness O'Loan: ...and individuals could be treated less favourably by a public authority in the exercise of its functions, for example, as regards funding, as a result of the public sector equality duty under Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010. This could occur in two rather different situations: first, following a decision by a religious organisation, “not to opt-in … be present at, carry out,...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (1st Day) (17 Jun 2013)

Lord Alli: ...or subject to the Equality Act. Robust provisions in the Bill and that Act already give such protections. Indeed, the Minister made this clear at Second Reading and, if she does not mind, I shall repeat her words. She said: “It is lawful to express a belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and it is lawful to do that whether at work or outside work. That is a belief...

Children and Families Bill: New Clause 9 — Transfer of EHC plans (11 Jun 2013)

Edward Timpson: ...developed some important skills in a number of innovative ways. I agree that online communities have their dangers, and that young people should be equipped to socialise over the internet safely. I repeat the commitment I gave in Committee: I will consider including a reference to online communities in the code, in the context of preparing for adulthood. I do not believe it is necessary to...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) (5 Jun 2013)

Lord McNally: ...of the magistracy, that emphasis has been made. The Government share the frustration of the magistracy. They seem to be almost forced into successive custodial terms because of the cycle of repeat offending. That is exactly why we have brought forward the Bill. It is why Clause 1 extends release on licence and why Clause 2 tops up that licence with additional supervision. The Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Youth Justice and Criminal Justice Act 1999 (21 May 2013)

Ann Coffey: I thank the Minister for his response. One victim of child sexual exploitation was aggressively cross-examined by seven barristers for three weeks in the Telford trial. Another was repeatedly called a liar until she broke down. Justice is not served by bullying vulnerable witnesses already scarred by their experiences. When does the Minister expect to be able to report further on the...
