Education and Inspections Bill (19 Oct 2006)

Baroness Buscombe: ...more PGCE students in languages and the target by 2010 for all seven to 11 year-olds to have the opportunity to learn a language are very welcome. I was intrigued to hear about the Spanish language dance mat that the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, has been sent. I hope that before this Bill goes to another place other noble Lords will have an opportunity to test it out. I say to the noble...

Sport Governing Bodies (6 Apr 2005)

Baroness Buscombe: ...for locating a casino in an established leisure resort away from the doorstep seems entirely sensible. I want to respond to the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, who suggested that perhaps people would be dancing in the streets of Blackpool tonight. I have to say to the noble Lord that only a short while ago I spoke to the chief executive of Blackpool Council who made it absolutely clear that...

Commons Amendment (19 Jun 2003)

Baroness Buscombe: ...or higher education sector within the meaning of the Education Act 1996, or a college, school, hall or other institution of a university. Therefore it is not just about school plays but also dances, raves, rock concerts and major festivals that are held by universities, colleges and places of further education for their students. There has also been anxiety about alcohol consumption,...

Commons Amendment (19 Jun 2003)

Baroness Buscombe: ...the provision of entertainment facilities alone. I very much wanted to have the opportunity to put the record straight. This is not Her Majesty's Opposition asking for raves, major rock festivals, dances and the students' union bar to be regarded as activities that are not licensable; quite the opposite. The purpose of our amendment throughout our scrutiny of the Bill has always been to...

Licensing Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2003)

Baroness Buscombe: ...children can look older than they are and, with fake identity cards available from the Internet, it is easy for them to fool bartenders and bouncers. The Bill lumps together supermarkets and lap-dancing clubs under the same licensing regime, with potentially disastrous results. Although it is wholly desirable for children to accompany their parents on family shopping trips, the same...

Licensing Bill [HL] (16 Jan 2003)

Baroness Buscombe: ...will as well. I do not understand why we must have the possibility of unrestricted and unaccompanied access by children of any age to all those licensed premises included in the Bill, whether lap-dancing clubs or a folksong recital. The Bill encompasses a huge breadth of different types of premises. The Government should consider with care the possibilities to which this could lead. In...

Licensing Bill [HL] (13 Jan 2003)

Baroness Buscombe: ...may be added to the licence. My amendment seeks to make the point that plays and performances in a licensed venue may well include what I have described as "adult entertainments"—that is, lap dancing and other sexually explicit shows. When we discussed the issue of unrestricted access for children, it became clear that many of us shared the fear that children might have access to...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...No. 114: Page 3, line 40, at end insert— "( ) In drawing up, keeping under review or revising a licensing policy, a licensing authority must take into account the need to promote such live music, dancing and theatre as it considers to be for the wider cultural benefit of its local community."

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: I shall speak briefly. I noted a reference in the earlier framework for guidance to advancing music, dancing and theatre for the wider cultural benefit of the local community. That does not seem to appear in the latest copy of the framework, although I may be incorrect about that. This is an important issue, and it should be in the Bill. It is appropriate that a licensing authority should...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...scope of the Bill. However, it reminds us of the many reasons why we had such long debates earlier in Committee about the will and the wish of so many different communities freely to enjoy music, dancing and theatre without the imposition of too many requirements for licences. That sentiment exists in all parts of the Committee, for which we are grateful. It serves as a good reminder that,...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...with different types of premises and applying a uniform set of rules, suggestions and guidance to them. I gave the example of supermarkets. It does not appear to make sense to ally Tesco with a lap-dancing club or the different types of activities that go on within them. I urge the Government to consider that point—it is of great value. It should be considered between now and Report. We...

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...the end of the day, they will have to police it. I thank the Minister for his full response, but we do not have clarity. It is a great problem that we are treating clubs in which there could be lap-dancing for 10 year-olds in the same light as supermarkets, which hardly seems sane. However, for the present, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Licensing Bill [HL] (19 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...on access for children. Unfortunately, many licensed premises are not the safe, family- friendly pubs we would like them to be. It is not necessary to talk in extremes about 10 year-olds in lap-dancing clubs. A group of 14 year-olds in a rough pub, unsupervised at 10 o'clock on a Friday night, might easily create an undesirable situation. The Government may argue that the licensed premises...

Licensing Bill [HL] (12 Dec 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: facilities creates a whole tier of unnecessary and onerous regulation. We believe that there is no need to define "entertainment facilities" in this schedule. A simple provision to allow music, dancing and similar forms of entertainment to take place within the regulatory framework, subject to conditions deemed necessary and appropriate, is all that is required. The permission for the...

Licensing Bill [HL] (26 Nov 2002)

Baroness Buscombe: ...corporate functions would become illegal unless licensed. We are told at paragraph 20 of the draft guidance that it will recommend that, "proper account be taken of the need to promote live music, dancing and theatre for the wider cultural benefit of communities generally". At this stage, I am severely doubtful that this legislation, notwithstanding it has moved from the preserve of the...
