Health and Education (24 May 2005)

Emily Thornberry: I am grateful for the opportunity to address the House for the first time on behalf of those whom I represent: the people of Islington, South and Finsbury. I compliment the hon. Member for Guildford (Anne Milton) on her speech. We have quite a lot in common because we have both been watched from the Public Gallery this evening by an experienced Labour politician of some 50 years from...

Oral Answers to Questions — Constitutional Affairs: Juries (7 Jun 2005)

Emily Thornberry: Is my hon. Friend aware that those of us who have worked in the criminal justice system are more or less unanimous in our belief that nothing should undermine the sanctity of the jury room? Despite pressure from the media and other sources to allow investigations into what happens in jury rooms, we ask that the Government remain firm that nothing should infringe on that privacy.

Orders of the Day — National Lottery Bill (14 Jun 2005)

Emily Thornberry: I am concerned about allegations about the lack of public confidence in the new management of the lottery fund. You have just made reference to money available for the elderly, but I should like to give the example of a pot of money available for elderly carers in Islington who are in their 80s and 90s and look after their 50-year-old children. That money is not available from local...

Public Bill Committee: Racial and Religious Hatred Bill: Schedule - Hatred against persons on racial or religious grounds (29 Jun 2005)

Emily Thornberry: This brings us to the nub of the issue. Perhaps there is a new orthodoxy. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the reason for that is perhaps that we have moved on. We are in the 21st century, in a multicultural, multiracial society. On behalf of society, this Parliament has said that it is an aggravating feature to assault someone because of their race or religion. The same should be true of...

Public Bill Committee: Racial and Religious Hatred Bill: Schedule - Hatred against people on racial or religious grounds (30 Jun 2005)

Emily Thornberry: I would be grateful for some guidance from the Minister. Is it right that under the law as it stands it is possible to make a citizen’s arrest for a potential breach of the peace? If that is so, as I believe was suggested earlier, there is an essential contradiction in the amendment. The hon. Gentleman is saying on one hand that there should not be a power to carry out a citizen’s arrest...

Orders of the Day — Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill: New Clause 4 — Byways open to all Traffic (11 Oct 2005)

James Paice: ...'s office, and I have to say that I accept that that is not the Bill's intention and that it will not make any difference to the position. The hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Emily Thornberry) has tabled a new clause on the issue and she will make her own case, but it is clear that there have been at least two cases—probably many more—in which inspectors have used...
