Written Answers — Home Office: Riot Control Weapons (27 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate her Department has made of the (a) total cost of training police officers in the use of water cannons and (b) cost of such training to each police force.

Isil: New Clause 23 — Throwing articles into prisons (23 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: ...I think that is very important. I know that we have to proceed fairly quickly, but it is worth my setting out the facts. There was a great deal of public concern when it became clear that Met police had been using RIPA to look into journalists’ sources during Operation Alice. For instance, they examined the phone records of Tom Newton Dunn, political editor of The Sun. Kent police...

Isil: New Clause 23 — Throwing articles into prisons (23 Feb 2015)

Julian Huppert: ...if Parliament were not keen to ensure that journalists were included. The Minister also spoke about the requirement for production orders to be used in the meantime. That is welcome, because the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 currently protects journalists so that their sources cannot be sought without judicial authorisation, but may I ask the Minister whether the use of such orders...

Mental Health (Cambridgeshire) (10 Dec 2014)

Julian Huppert: ..., discharged patients will just be shut out of services and will return to being bounced around the system, looking for crisis care. We need good crisis care as well, so that people can receive help. I again pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for North Norfolk for his work on the crisis care concordat, bringing organisations together to deal with such crises. Currently, a huge...

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: But that is exactly what happened with police and crime commissioners in legislation for which I presume the hon. Gentleman voted. If they have ever been convicted of an imprisonable offence, they are debarred from the office.

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...: if any Member is convicted of misconduct in public office, whether or not they are imprisoned—something that has never happened to a Member before, but which does happen on a semi-regular basis, sadly, to police officers in particular. It seems inconceivable that an MP convicted of such an offence could be immune from recall, so I hope the House will support that amendment too....

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...Members to be equal, broadly speaking, regardless of where they have been elected from. The other issue is that although the offence of misconduct in public office is used quite regularly against police officers—there are a number of other cases—it has never actually been used against a Member of Parliament. There is a question of whether we trust the Crown Prosecution Service...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — UK Drugs Policy (30 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...substances cause. That is the wrong goal and it has not worked. Drug use is still high, with millions of people regularly breaking the law, which is not an effective disincentive. Hon. Members can talk to many police officers about this, but frankly it makes the law look silly when 4 million people a year are committing a criminal offence, of whom 100,000—randomly selected, but with...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — UK Drugs Policy (30 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...Home Secretary to agree to go ahead. We spend vast amounts of money on a drugs policy. Estimates vary between £3 billion and £10 billion a year, depending on which costs are included. Times are tight, so we should spend that money effectively. We should use police resources effectively, too. If police are kept busy dealing with simple possession offences, that is time and effort...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — UK Drugs Policy (30 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.” All those voices are on side; we need to bring the Prime Minister back. Portugal has been a huge success. When we visited, we found that the new drugs policy was supported across the parties, and by the police as it helped them to deal with crime. Let me make two last points before concluding. In 2016, the UN General Assembly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Child Abuse Inquiries (13 Oct 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...will be aware of the failure of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in the Project Spade case, where 2,500 names of people buying child abuse images were passed on by the Canadian police but not looked at. A doctor at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge was abusing children and was on that list. Had CEOP acted with the powers it already had, a number of children would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Police Reform (22 Jul 2014)

Julian Huppert: The Home Secretary is absolutely right to praise the work of the vast majority of police forces, but also right to highlight the need for public confidence and to make sure that the few rogue police officers do not do down all the others. May I press her on one particular point? She said that police officers would not be able to retire in order to avoid misconduct hearings. Will that have any...

Written Answers — Home Department: Police Custody: Young People (21 Jul 2014)

Julian Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many 17 year olds were held in police custody in each of the last five years.

Bills Presented: New Clause 3 — Transparency on data collection (15 Jul 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...people and what the reasons were. This is a very frustrating state of affairs. When we looked at the draft Communications Data Bill, we found that there was just a two-week snapshot survey of a few police forces—it was not even all of them—asking about the purposes for which communications data are used. For that reason, I have for a long time wanted proper transparency...

Bills Presented: Clause 6 — Commencement, duration, extent and short title (15 Jul 2014)

Julian Huppert: ...is used and for what purposes. As I understand it—I am sure the Minister will correct me if I am wrong—the only information on how communications data are used is based on a two-week snapshot survey of police forces. What sort of crime is it? We know that data are used and we know of many examples. It is only that small survey that tells us exactly what sort of things they are...

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

Julian Huppert: ...Association was against mandatory sentences. That is something we should listen carefully to. We also heard from deputy assistant commissioner Hitchcock, who led at the time for the Association of Chief Police Officers on this issue; he is now chief constable of the Ministry of Defence. He was very clear that he opposed mandatory sentencing, and what he said comes exactly to the point:...

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

Julian Huppert: I find fascinating the hon. Gentleman’s efforts to bridge everything: he is in favour of mandatory sentencing as long as there is discretion for the police and the judges—and everybody else. He is thoroughly confused. The judge already has the power to sentence somebody for up to four years. Under this proposal, they will also have that power, so I do not understand what the hon....

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

Julian Huppert: I confess that I am not a lawyer, but I think that it would be hard to make a defence—those who are lawyers may correct me—of generally being scared of being attacked over a long time period, given that people are not carrying a knife because they expect to be attacked on a particular occasion and in a particular place. That is the problem. These people are scared. They are...

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

Julian Huppert: ...by a factual inaccuracy about laws relating to penknives and so on—nobody mentioned that the definition is a limit of up to 3 inches; it is not to do with anything else, and it is not to do with police discretion. I am pleased that there has been a substantial decline in knife possession offences over the last three years. Fewer people are carrying knives—there are reductions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Imprints in Social Media (12 Jun 2014)

Julian Huppert: Last month my constituent Michael Abberton was visited by the police after a UKIP councillor complained about his tweeting a fact-check list of UKIP’s policies. That was clearly absurd, although I can see why UKIP did not want people to know its policies, and the police have apologised to my constituent. This raises concerns about the guidance, which has not been updated recently. Will...
