Baroness Chakrabarti: ..., because the issue is so serious. At various times in the debates on the Bill, some noble Lords have expressed irritation that one should hark back to past abuses including those in the Undercover Policing Inquiry, or the treatment of my noble friends Lord Hain and Lady Lawrence, as if they belong in a bygone era and would never happen again. Other examples include the treatment of the...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 11 (24 Nov 2020)

Baroness Manningham-Buller: ...work of MI5, and always has been. I can remember—I have checked with former colleagues, who have found paperwork going back 27 years to 1993—raising with Governments the need for legislation to cover the activities of what were then called “participating agents”. I do not apologise for reminding the House of a little history; that date was before the Intelligence Services Act,...

Kirsten Oswald: ...and jobs being lost. Andy Haldane, chief economist at the Bank of England, has said that we are at risk of returning to 1980s levels of unemployment—truly a return to the Thatcher years. Recovery from the pandemic will not be helped by the Prime Minister delivering a half-baked Brexit that will undermine many sectors of the economy. According to the latest employer survey by the...

Tim Loughton: ...affect less than 1% of all mergers and acquisitions and asset transactions in this country. My concern, like that of other right hon. and hon. Members, is whether the Bill goes far enough. Does it cover enough sectors and appropriate interests? How should the Government define national security, which is absent from the Bill?

Kevan Jones: ...interest, and sometimes it is difficult to explain that to the public. I see no purpose whatsoever in prosecuting an 80-year-old veteran in Northern Ireland.

Chris Evans: ...reforms are needed to stop legal cases relating to UK actions where that is not appropriate, but the Bill’s definition of overseas operations, to which these provisions apply, is too broad, as it covers “peacekeeping operations and operations dealing with terrorism, civil unrest or serious public disorder, during the course of which members of Her Majesty’s forces come under attack...
