Public Bill Committee: Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill: Clause 12 (22 Oct 2020)

Johnny Mercer: Requiring a debate before an order is made may also result in discussion of operations that rely on an element of surprise.

I therefore strongly recommend that the amendment is withdrawn.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission said in written evidence: “At the very least, we recommend support for amendment 57, which would require significant derogations regarding overseas operations proposed by the Government from the ECHR to be approved by Parliament before being made.” As it points out, the amendment is the very least that we should be doing to ensure...

Agriculture Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A (20 Oct 2020)

Lord Carrington: ...add nothing of value to the existing regulatory regime; I urge its rejection.
