Lord Black of Brentwood: ...the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests. As with the previous group of amendments we discussed in Committee, the implications in this area go well beyond the press and impact on online and broadcast media, along with a wide range of literary and artistic interests. They are supported by the Media Lawyers Association, the News Media Association and the...

Powers of Entry etc. Bill [HL]: Committee (5 Mar 2010)

Lord Selsdon: ..., to withdraw Amendments 1, 2 and 3, but not the amendment to the schedule. That would mean I was dishonest. Amendment 1 withdrawn. Amendments 2 and 3 not moved. Clauses 9 to 12 agreed. Schedule : Acts and secondary legislation containing powers Amendment 4 Moved by Lord Selsdon 4: The Schedule , leave out the Schedule and insert- "SCHEDULE Section 3Acts and secondary legislation...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Report (4th Day) (29 Oct 2009)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, these are minor amendments to the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 that change the date that a youth rehabilitation order comes into effect to the day that it is made. The current legislation delays the date that the order comes into effect until the day after it is made. A delay in the start of the sentence would result in a gap of at least 24 hours between sentence and...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (6th Day)(Continued) (9 Jul 2009)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: ...libel prohibits all writings and other utterances which tend to bring about hatred or contempt for the king, the Government or the constitution as by law established. Sedition consists of any act done or word spoken or written and published which has a seditious tendency, and done or spoken or written and published with a seditious intent. In 1792, Thomas Paine was convicted for seditious...

Orders of the Day: Schedule 26 — Hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation (6 May 2008)

Maria Eagle: ...offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel can no longer be justified, and we are confident that this would also, in today's conditions, be the view of the English courts under the Human Rights Act and the Strasbourg Court under the ECHR". The High Court's decision on 5 December last year that the Theatres Act 1968 and the Broadcasting Act 1990 prevent the prosecution of a theatre, the...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (5 Mar 2008)

Baroness O'Cathain: ...Primates stated that abolition is not a sign of secularisation. Dr Evan Harris said in response: "It should be seen as a secularising move, and with pride". I rest my case. The Government have been reactive to a proposition by the secularists and are trying to beguile us into saying, "Everything is going to be all right. It is nothing at all". I am afraid—I do not like to say this...

Orders of the Day: "Part 3B — Hatred against persons on transgender grounds (9 Jan 2008)

Maria Eagle: ...into desuetude. The last prosecution for blasphemy was in 1977, in the case of Whitehouse and Gay News Ltd, as Members will recall. It follows that there have been no cases since the Human Rights Act 1998. The idea that the offences appear to be moribund was reinforced by the High Court's decision on 5 December 2007 that the Theatres Act 1968 and the Broadcasting Act 1990 prevent the...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Licensing Act (7 Feb 2006)

James Purnell: ...Arts Council for England, the Musicians' Union, Equity, the Independent Street Arts Network and the Circus Arts Forum. With regard to (b) , the Government examined the operation of the Licensing Act 1964, particularly section 182, Schedule 12 of the London Government Act 1963, the Private Places of Entertainment Act 1967, the Theatres Act 1968 and Schedule 1 of the Local Government...

Touring Circuses (27 Apr 2004)

Ms Estelle Morris: ...a moment. Circuses feel more strongly about the matter than anyone else and more aggrieved than any other entertainment sector. Most of the other industries have settled their differences with the Act and with the Government, but the circus sector has not done so. I remind the House that the 2003 Act was intended to be broadly beneficial to industry and to the entertainment sector, because...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 98 - Temporary event notice (8 May 2003)

Jim Knight: ...expressed their concern about the limit of five events, given that premises can currently get 12 temporary permissions. It should be borne in mind that, as has been said, premises can also use the Theatres Act 1968 to serve interval drinks during some other events, so the total would be 12 events plus the use of the 1968 Act. The Bill proposes allowing five temporary event notices, lasting...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 98 - Temporary event notice (8 May 2003)

Jim Knight: My recollection is that it would be possible to use the Theatres Act 1968 to licence a village hall, for example, and then to hold a series of events during the year in which alcohol could be sold. All that would be required to put on such an event would be the public entertainments licence. That is one possible mechanism for getting round the provisions.

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 74 - Prohibited conditions: plays (6 May 2003)

Kim Howells: ...the cast present it. We are talking about plays as they are defined in paragraph 16 of schedule 2 and, therefore, about operas and ballet too. Mr. Gale, you and I will recall the giant step of the Theatres Act 1968, which abolished the Lord Chamberlain's powers to censor plays. Those people who have seen ''Shakespeare in Love'' will realise that he was a powerful character. The Lord...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 - Application for premises licence (10 Apr 2003)

Kim Howells: ...reports of its taking place. I hope that we have made it clear that it is not our intention for licensing authorities to be free to use the powers in this Bill to interfere or intervene in all manner of activities that are better left either to other regimes of regulation or unregulated altogether. We do not want licensing authorities to use their powers to censor plays, or to prevent...

Public Bill Committee: Licensing Bill [Lords]: Schedule 1 - Provision of regulated amendments (1 Apr 2003)

Jim Knight: My hon. Friend is straying into dangerous territory. When I was a promoter I ran a theatre and then an arts centre, and promoting comedy was one of the most popular things I did. Public order and public safety for such events were governed by the Theatres Act 1968. It is pertinent that comedy performances be covered. I remember the Mary Whitehouse Experience playing Wembley arena some years...

Licensing Bill [HL] (13 Jan 2003)

Lord Davies of Oldham: I accept the fact that the clause does not address every form of entertainment that we may think is in questionable taste, but it is clear what we are seeking to achieve. The clause carries forward a provision that appears in Section 1(2) of the Theatres Act 1968. The aim is straightforward—to prevent licensing authorities from attaching conditions that relate to the nature of the play...

Orders of the Day — Medical Treatment (Prevention of Euthanasia) Bill: Consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions (14 Apr 2000)

Yvette Cooper: ...to leave the matter to the Crown Prosecution Service, as in the Bill as drafted. At the moment, the question of who should make a decision under particular laws is extremely complex. We cannot look to any Act of Parliament to determine which prosecutions should require the prior consent of the Attorney-General. Where such consent is required, the requirement is set out in the statute...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 5: Reserved Matters (30 Mar 1998)

Henry McLeish: ...in the aftermath of the catastrophic incident in one of our towns. Government amendment No. 464 seeks to remove from the list of reserved matters the subject matter of sections 12 to 14 of the Theatres Act 1968 and of the Hypnotism Act 1952. Those matters are presently dealt with on a Great Britain basis. We considered initially that it would be useful to retain those arrangements so that...

Orders of the Day — Scotland Bill (12 Jan 1998)

Alex Salmond: ...Convention, only with the towering heights of defence matters, foreign affairs or even social security. The list of reserved powers in the section headed "Entertainment" includes the Hypnotism Act 1952, the Theatres Act 1968, the Cinemas Act 1985 and the Video Recordings Act 1984. The schedule contains far too many reserved powers. Would the central integrity of the United Kingdom have...
