Trade Bill - Second Reading (11 Sep 2018)

Lord Lansley: ...the issue of Japan. I agree with much of what my noble friend Lord Trenchard had to say; he understands Japan extremely well.

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Delivery of bladed products to residential premises etc (6 Sep 2018)

Louise Haigh: ...its application. I think I am right in saying that the clause’s sole purpose is to ensure that the clause around sale to under-18s is absolutely safeguarded; as the Minister just described, the Bill, as it goes through, step by step, enforces previous clauses. However, it does not seem that other options presented to the Government, the Home Office and the Committee that would...
