Education Committee: Antisocial Behaviour (7 Feb 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ...require. One idea that could be rolled out nationally came from New York in the 1990s, when the mayor adopted a zero-tolerance approach to antisocial behaviour, fly-tipping, rubbish-dumping and graffiti. The outcomes were very positive. If a window was broken it was fixed, if rubbish piled up it was moved, and if people behaved in an antisocial way they were dealt with. If that is to work...

Religious Intolerance and Prejudice - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Lord Hain: ...and sometimes continuously over the millennia; against the Irish in the nineteenth century; against Jews again in the 1930s; against black and Asian Britons from the late 1950s until today; and against Muslims in the first two decades of this century. But what is entirely novel today is a toxic convergence of attacks on Jewish, black and Muslim British citizens all at the same time. I am...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Alex Sobel: .... I am pleased that the Polish prosecutor general has issued a legal opinion stating that in part the law is unconstitutional, and I look forward to the tribunal’s ruling, which should come any day now. It is only appropriate to start this debate by paying tribute to the thousands of Poles who helped the Jews during the second world war and fought alongside allied soldiers in the Polish...

Petition - No. 31 Bus Service to Cheadle from Hanley: Parental Alienation (15 Mar 2017)

Simon Danczuk: ...her son, after her ex-husband told her that she would never see her child again. Miriam denied the accusations and they have since been dismissed by the court, yet she did not see her son for 592 days, and he will now consent to seeing her only under supervision, every six weeks. She is losing hope that she will ever have a meaningful relationship with her child again. She told The...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Racial Equality Strategy (11 Oct 2016)

Philip McGuigan: Like everybody else, I welcome the opportunity to speak to today's motion. Muhammad Ali once said, "Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain wrong." Muhammad Ali was correct, of course, but it is an unfortunate reality that racism exists in our society today. Whether it takes the form of physical attack, attacks on...

Delegated Legislation: EU Referendum: Race Hate Crime (5 Jul 2016)

Karen Bradley: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bolton South East (Yasmin Qureshi) on securing today’s debate and I wish her a happy birthday. I hope she will have some remaining time this evening to enjoy it. Hate crime of any kind, directed against any community, race or religion has absolutely no place in our society. I reiterate my message from last week: this Government are utterly committed to...

Antisocial Behaviour (South Manchester) (4 Dec 2014)

Damian Hinds: ...justice approach has been piloted in five wards in south Manchester: Burnage, Fallowfield, Levenshulme, Old Moat and Withington. Its purpose is to resolve issues of antisocial behaviour. Early and informal interventions will often be successful in stopping such antisocial behaviour. The aim of the pilots is to establish clear standards of behaviour and reinforce the message that antisocial...

Religion and Belief: British Public Life — Motion to Take Note (27 Nov 2014)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I join all other noble Lords in thanking the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, for bringing this debate to the House today. It is an important issue. In doing so, I pay tribute to his enduring contribution to promoting our national heritage and his work, particularly with the Woolf Institute—a point also acknowledged by other noble Lords, including the...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Clause 58 — Interveners and costs (17 Jun 2014)

Philip Davies: ...by dogs to ensure there was no invasion by squatters. The clean-up costs for the owners will have been considerable and could have been avoided had the police been able to arrest the squatters on day one. Another example that has come to my attention involves an office building owned by Kewal Investments Ltd. Having forced their way into the property, the squatters initially invited the...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Wright Committee (2 Jul 2013)

Graham Allen: ...stuff out, using procedural tricks and all the other stuff that just brings the House and Members into disrepute. Let us be honest about private Members’ Bills. There are many other things. Early-day motions are political graffiti. The Wright Committee recommended that a number of motions could be used to secure Members’ debates on the Floor of the House. Again, there would be a small...

British Retail — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (6 Mar 2013)

Ann Coffey: ...not only an event but an online television show and an initiative dedicated to supporting young creative talent. It provides a free platform for young painters, fashion designers, jewellery makers, graffiti artists, photographers, graphic designers, bakers, poets, comedians, musicians, singers, dancers and other performers. Stockport’s famous Plaza, which is a splendid vintage cinema and...

Police and Crime Commissioners (5 Dec 2012)

Jeremy Browne: ...bosom, Ms Dorries. As always, I congratulate the hon. Member for Nottingham North (Mr Allen), whom for the purposes of this debate I call my hon. Friend, on his sterling and sustained work on early intervention. To summarise what I am going to say in the next 10 to 12 minutes, I agree with him. He is right to give this issue his attention. The evidence is compelling. There are some...

Scottish Parliament: Time for Reflection (20 Nov 2012)

The Rev David Gordon (Kirkintilloch Baptist Church): Presiding Officer, members of the Scottish Parliament, ladies and gentlemen. Early on 16 May 1998, a bus left from Kirkintilloch Baptist church with people of all ages. The destination was Birmingham. The purpose was to participate in the Jubilee 2000 campaign to form a human chain around the International convention centre to coincide...

Protection of Freedoms Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2011)

Baroness Brinton: ...people near and dear to them and, sometimes, complete strangers. As the main target, and because I was the parliamentary candidate, I co-ordinated the reporting of all these events, because in the early stages we could not get the police to take them seriously. Surveys of stalking victims show that often they suffer 100 incidents before they go to the police or can get the police to take...

HIV and AIDS in the UK: Debate (1 Dec 2011)

Lord Fowler: My Lords, I am grateful to the authorities for finding room for this debate on World AIDS Day. Perhaps I may first offer some thanks. I thank the committee, which was a mixture of old campaigners- I must be careful how I say that these days, but the noble Baroness, Lady Trumpington, is not here-and Members who were very much new to the area but who made a major contribution. I am delighted to...

North Africa and the Near and Middle East (28 Nov 2011)

William Bain: ...Phillips), my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford South (Mike Gapes) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire South (Mr Alexander) in saying how fitting it is that, on this day, when the people of Egypt start to go to the polls in their parliamentary general election, we are holding this debate on the future of the middle east and north Africa. I shall restrict my...

Creative Industries — Debate (3 Nov 2011)

Baroness Benjamin: ...changes and moods of society and include everyone in that process. This is so important. However, young people themselves are redefining creativity as modern technology changes the way they create. Graffiti and rap music have become art forms in their own right. Online sites such as YouTube allow them to participate in creative projects independently and reach millions across the globe....

Royal Parks (19 Jul 2011)

Mark Field: ...Friend rightly points out, some of the fabric is ruined for the other nine months of the year. That has to be stopped as far as possible. The reduction in the burden on the taxpayer is welcome—clearly, these are times of great austerity and the amount of grant that comes from central Government in all areas is under close scrutiny—but tensions have arisen between the need to maintain...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Consideration Stage (21 Feb 2011)

Edwin Poots: I thank the Committee for its support on the issues that were raised. Fly-posting and graffiti are current problems. The Bill could be further enhanced if the consultation exercise on a bids process, in which Minister Attwood is engaged in, were to come to fruition in the House early in the lifetime of the next Assembly. That process would ensure that councils have the financial wherewithal...
