Ivory Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (12 Sep 2018)

Lord Judge: ...of, “promoting awareness and understanding of the provisions of this Act”, which means that you will get a pep talk, or, “assessing compliance with those provisions”, which means rather more. Clause 17 is clear that he may search premises: “any place”, except a dwelling-house. Fair enough. However, that includes any office, factory, shop and, presumably,...

Careers Education for Students - Motion to Take Note (6 Sep 2018)

Lord Storey: .... This is due to budget constraints to some extent but it is also perhaps about school indifference. Parents who can afford it—and I guess that is many of us here—make sacrifices to do what is best for their children. There is no shortage of independent careers advice available: you just need to search the internet. In addition to paying for one-to-one advice, for an additional...

Care Homes: CCTV — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (5 Sep 2018)

Julie Cooper: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I am grateful for the opportunity to respond to the debate, and to the right hon. and learned Member for Beaconsfield (Mr Grieve) for bringing this important subject before the House. I feel strongly about it, and I bring some personal experience over many years of sourcing care for grandparents and, most recently, for my own...

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Jul 2018)

Paul Scully: Q Coming back to stop-and-search, can you just outline what changes have happened in your stop-and-search over the last two, three or four years? How have you approached it?

Ivory Bill - Second Reading (17 Jul 2018)

Baroness Bakewell of Hardington Mandeville: ...many of the arguments deployed then have been repeated here today. A great deal of thought has gone into the Bill and it has, as has been said, cross-party support both here and in the other place. Your Lordships will be pleased to know that I shall not go through it clause by clause, as that is for Committee. Elephants, both African and Asian, are iconic species, gentle giants of two...

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [HL] - Committee (10 Jul 2018)

Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames: ...very human problems. Only as recently as 24 April, the Lord Chancellor wrote jointly with the Lord Chief Justice and the noble Lord, Lord Kakkar, the chairman of the Judicial Appointments Commission, to your Lordships’ Constitution Committee to announce a funded programme to encourage applicants for judicial office, aimed partly at increasing the diversity of successful applicants...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Gavin Robinson: ...about the competition and the constraints put upon us as a region. I could not have put it better. We are set aside by the Irish sea, and we rely on air connectivity. We do not have the choice to search around for off-peak train travel, or to easily jump on a boat, only to find that the bus is not at Stranraer waiting for us. When we look at stimulating our economic growth, we have to...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Border Security (10 Jul 2018)

Ben Wallace: ..., when this law was introduced by the last Labour Government, it was decided that an hour was a reasonable time for that type of screening examination, which is similar to the question, “Could I search your bag?” from a customs officer and so on. That was a reasonable time. When you go beyond that hour, you have the right to a lawyer. Another part of that very old and dear...

Part-time and Continuing Education and the Open University - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...excellent debate. I start by congratulating my noble friend Lady Bryan of Partick on a fine maiden speech. We first met many years ago, and I welcome my noble friend and her brand of socialism to your Lordships’ House. I can tell your Lordships: “You ain’t heard nothing yet”. My noble friend Lady Bakewell opened the debate most effectively and highlighted the fact...

Commercial Sexual Exploitation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Sarah Champion: It is not only a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley; it is also a relief to be able to do so and I thank you for your kindness in enabling it to happen. We need to recognise that there is a crisis of commercial sexual exploitation in this country. The trafficking and exploitation of vulnerable women and girls around the UK to be sexually abused is taking place on an...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Power to enter and search home (3 Jul 2018)

Stephen Doughty: Thank you, Mrs Ryan. I appreciate your using your discretion in allowing me to speak to the amendment. I do not intend to push it to a vote, but I wanted to probe the Minister on this particular issue. The power to enter and search home addresses is obviously a significant one, and one that needs to be used with great care and caution. While we all recognise the important need for the...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill - Second Reading (29 Jun 2018)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...contributions today. We must also thank Chris Bryant, and the tens of thousands who took part in his poll, for getting the Bill to where it is today. I hope that we can give it a fair wind through your Lordships’ House as it heads towards the statute book. In the past few months, we have marked a year since the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower and the terrorist attacks in Manchester and...

Youth Services - Question for Short Debate (26 Jun 2018)

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port: ...young people in particular. I mentioned that I am the president of the Boys’ Brigade and that ought to be a warning that there is a potential conflict of interest. In case anyone thinks I am about to plead my special cause—your Lordships must correct me if I do that—I mention it also for the positive reason that it gives me ample opportunity to be with young people rather...

Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (Codes of Practice) (Revision of Codes C, E, F, and H) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (25 Jun 2018)

Lord Elton: My Lords, the interest in your Lordships’ House in these codes of practice is far less intense now than it was in 1984, when they were born. I was the Minister in charge of the Bill at the time, and I carry away a clear memory of the two focuses of the House’s interest. One was on stop and search—what happened between the police and the public on the street—and the...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Michael Tomlinson: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell, and to contribute so early in this debate. I too congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan). The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) and my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) were right to say that the number of hon. Members here in this Chamber shows the...

Operation Sophia: A Failed Mission (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2018)

Baroness Goldie: My Lords, first, may I say that I have genuinely enjoyed this debate? It has been interesting and stimulating and I am very grateful to all noble Lords for their contributions. I join all your Lordships in thanking my noble friend Lady Verma for tabling this debate. I thank her and all the other members of the European Union Committee for their detailed report. I say to my noble friend Lord...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Kenneth Clarke: ...to think that there are no protectionist pressures in India and Brazil and that it is simply a question of our present Foreign Secretary walking in, with his bonhomie, and saying, “You will of course now throw your markets open to us”. It is also absurd to argue that somehow this approach will produce deals with less damage to our sovereignty and fewer constraints. I do not...

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Mel Stride: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) both on securing the debate and on the tenacious approach she has rightly taken to the extremely important matter of business rates. I thank her for her comprehensive contribution, and in particular for the examples she gave of high street businesses—I...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Financial Penalties Etc (12 Jun 2018)

Sarah Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma, for our second day in Committee. As the Minister has set out, schedule 3 provides some clarity over financial penalties, including notices of intent, recovery of penalties and proceeds of those penalties. The Opposition support the schedule as drafted. We are seeking clarity, however, from the Minister on certain aspects, before we...

Palestinian Territories - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...recent launching of rockets and mortars from Gaza into Israel. Israel’s wisest Foreign Minister, Abba Eban, used often to say that the Palestinians, “never missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity”, in the search for peace. For a long time, he was quite right but, now, that affliction has fallen on the Israelis themselves. As, by a long way, the most powerful state in...
