Backbench Business: EU Referendum: UK-Ireland Border (19 Jul 2016)

Steve Pound: ...of note one day, Mr Hollobone; I had rather hoped for something of a little more significance, but I will take what I can get. Despite that, it is an absolute delight and a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I join the general chorus of approbation in congratulating the hon. Member for Belfast South (Dr McDonnell) on bringing this crucial matter before the House. This will not be...

Backbench Business: Contribution of Poles to UK Society — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Jul 2016)

Marcus Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Shrewsbury and Atcham (Daniel Kawczynski) for securing this important debate, and I thank hon. Members for their many and varied contributions. This has been an extremely good and constructive debate. The Polish contribution to the United Kingdom is absolutely woven into the fabric of our...

Policing and Crime Bill - Second Reading (18 Jul 2016)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...suitably trained and qualified staff with any of the powers of a constable, with the exception of those expressly reserved for warranted officers. This list of “core” powers, such as powers of arrest and stop and search, are the most intrusive. It is right that they continue to be reserved for fully trained police officers. Under these new arrangements, it will also be open to...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Beith: ...to believe that it often was observed in practice and that this was recognised to be a different situation to other interceptions—it played that useful role. However, it was riddled with failings. All it did, if your Lordships read it, was to set out the policy of a particular Government at a particular time. What it of course set out was not that the communications of...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (1st Day) (11 Jul 2016)

Lord Strasburger: ...separate question of whether there is enough evidence to pass the first, evidential arm of the threshold test. Such a police investigation could last for months, if not years, and will involve interviews under caution, search warrants and perhaps arrest. That is a real disincentive to investigative journalism. If there is a statutory public interest defence, the police will be able to see...

Modern Slavery (Transparency in Supply Chains) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jul 2016)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...not launched an online repository, although we are aware of a number of proposals from third parties who suggest that they could develop a website to host these statements and to help people to search for them. I would like to complete a quotation that the noble Lord, Lord Alton, made regarding an answer I gave in April this year when I said: “There never was an intention to...

Broadband in Wales — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

Chi Onwurah: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. It is a great pleasure to respond to the debate for the Opposition. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ceredigion (Mr Williams) on securing this debate on an increasingly important topic. Like the hon. Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (Calum Kerr), I also congratulate him on the tone and content of his opening...

Artistic Remuneration for Online Content — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (6 Jul 2016)

Kerry McCarthy: It is, as ever, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I congratulate the hon. Member for Selby and Ainsty (Nigel Adams) on securing the debate and on all the work that he has been doing with the all-party parliamentary group on music. This issue is of real and growing concern to musicians and has been for some time. As an MP for Bristol, which a fairly recent survey showed...

Historical Child Sex Abuse - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Lord Armstrong of Ilminster: ...certainly need to be very closely considered. I can see that there are difficulties about such guidance, but it is very badly needed. I will confine my comments to the case of Sir Edward Heath. Your Lordships will know that, in the absence of any close relatives of his, I have expressed publicly my view that Sir Edward Heath was not guilty of any criminal offences of child abuse, and that...

Court Proceedings: Written Transcripts - Question (28 Jun 2016)

Lord Faulks: ...passing sentence, and the sentencing hearing, which can be very much longer and cost something like 800 or 900 per day in the Crown Court and rather more in the High Court. If you can refine your search, it tends to be very much cheaper.

Investigatory Powers Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (27 Jun 2016)

Viscount Colville of Culross: ...interest consideration for requests to investigate communications data for a source of journalistic information, but I fear that this privilege is far too specific. It applies only to requests to search directly for “journalistic sources” and from only one power in this Bill: that of communications data. But there are many other powers in the Bill which could directly or...

EU Action Plan Against Migrant Smuggling (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2016)

Baroness Suttie: ...route is the longest and most dangerous, particularly if carried out in a rubber dinghy. As the report states, we believe that Operation Sophia is carrying out a successful role in providing a search and rescue function, but is doing little to destroy the people-smugglers’ business model—at times, indeed, quite the reverse. The lack of a stable regime in Libya is further...

Digital Skills (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Baroness Harding of Winscombe: .... It is an excellent report and I am only sorry that my own endeavours in the digital world have meant that this is the first time I have been able personally to participate. It will not surprise your Lordships to learn that I am passionate about the ability of the internet to change lives for the better. At its best, the digital world can advance human knowledge and understanding, enable...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (6 Jun 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...dealing” in that object, because they are not “acquiring” the object. The rest of Part 4 outlines the circumstances in which unlawfully exported cultural property would be liable to forfeiture and creates the necessary new powers of entry, search and seizure. Part 5 of the Bill provides immunity from seizure or forfeiture for cultural property that is being transported to...

Petition - Development on the Former Two Trees High School Site, Denton: Battle of Jutland Centenary (25 May 2016)

Flick Drummond: ...was at sea until his ships appeared on the horizon. Although wireless technology was widely available, it was used sparingly as it gave the transmitter’s position away to the enemy, so flags and search lights were the main means by which ship-to-ship communications were conducted. In the smoke, the spray and poor visibility, signals were not received, so small cruisers were placed...

Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (3 May 2016)

Lord Sharkey: ...her CEO application, before she had had a chance to tell her own people; and, then, the appointment of Andrew Bailey as CEO without benefit of a proper interview panel. I will not even mention that the search for the hard-to-find Mr Bailey cost 280,000. To restore belief in its independence and its self-confidence and morale, the FCA needs to have a robustly and operationally...

Backbench Business: Antibiotics: Research and Development — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Apr 2016)

George Freeman: I leave Mr Evans for five minutes and he transforms into you, Mr Hollobone. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve under your chairmanship. We are three years into our strategy and we have put building blocks in place, including better data and guidance and a strengthened framework for antimicrobial stewardship. I want to highlight one or two areas of progress. The first is surveillance....

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Power to issue bulk acquisition warrants (26 Apr 2016)

John Hayes: ...emphasises that a test of necessity and proportionality must be applied to all these matters, but also makes it clear that the operational purposes of the warrant are salient, too. Ms Dorries, we had a debate in your absence about whether the operational case should be explored in more detail at the outset. Like the hon. and learned Gentleman, I will not reprise that debate, but for your...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Bulk interception warrants (21 Apr 2016)

...internal memo goes on to say: “Another area of concern is the use of the database as a ‘convenient way’ to check the personal details of colleagues when filling out service forms on their behalf. Please remember that every search has the potential to invade the privacy of individuals, including individuals who are not the main subject of your search, so please make sure...

Brain Tumours — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2016)

Iain Stewart: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. I add my congratulations to those that have been offered to the hon. Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones), who spoke to the motion so powerfully. In addition to the moving personal stories that some of my constituents have told me, one of my motivations for speaking today is that I am proud to have in my constituency the...
