Prayers: Water Meters (8 May 1996)

Mr Robert Jones: ...properties restore their water flow within 24 hours. Opposition Members have claimed that the use of the scheme is a ploy by water companies to avoid the time and expense involved in obtaining court orders to disconnect a customer's water supply. That is far from true—disconnections are reserved as an ultimate sanction against customers who can pay but will not pay. I shall repeat one...

New Schedule: Sexual conduct to prejudice of good order and discipline (9 May 1996)

Robert Key: ...that, in the British armed forces, there is a deep and genuine conviction that homosexuals have no place in service life. Other people may not like that attitude, but it is a plain fact. The courts may not like it, and they may seek to change it. My greatest fear is that change may be forced on the services too fast, with all the attendant risks of recrimination, victimisation and real...

Fishery Limits (Amendment): Westminster City Council (14 May 1996)

Orders of the Day — Defamation Bill [Lords] (21 May 1996)

Mr Alex Carlile: ...be abolished in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The present law in Scotland allows a dishonest pursuer, as they call him there, or plaintiff, as we call him here, to protect his reputation in court. The judge or jury is not entitled to know that, in truth, he is a dishonest person or a person of bad character. The defence is not allowed to introduce evidence to that effect. The likes...

Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mrs. Golding) —and Goronwy Roberts, the Member of Parliament for Caernarfon. It is right that, while English should remain the language of this House, the Welsh Grand Committee, when sitting in Wales, should be able to hear...

Schedule 2: 'Further restrictions on holding of licences of different descriptions (2 Jul 1996)

Mr Robert Maclennan: ...incomprehensible in terms of the sequence of historical events—it does not lie squarely with what he said before—and makes no sense in English. I cannot imagine how it could be interpreted by a court of law. I hope that the hon. Member for North Thanet has been drumming up some support for his amendment among his hon. Friends, and I hope that the Minister has had time to take into...

New clause 21: Binding Nature of Provisions (8 Jul 1996)

Mr Robert Jones: ...in an adjudicator. Perhaps they recognise that the dispute concerns a point of law that is fundamental to the interpretation of the contract, and that it is sensible to take the dispute straight to court. There is no reason why they should not be allowed to make and rely on an agreement to that effect. I think that what the hon. Member for Greenwich is worried about is people signing away...

Prayers: Bolton Magistrates Court (10 Jul 1996)

Mr Peter Thurnham: I am most grateful for this opportunity to raise an important matter in my constituency: the need for new magistrates courts in Bolton. Whenever I have conducted an opinion poll in my constituency, law and order has always come out as my constituents' top concern and therefore the efficient administration of justice in Bolton is of the highest priority. The Government admitted the need for...

Business of the House (11 Jul 1996)

Mr John Marshall: May I ask my right hon. Friend for an urgent debate on early-day motion 1106?

Parliamentary Procedure (11 Jul 1996)

Mr Christopher Gill: ...as a matter of opinion, but as a matter of fact. I cite in evidence the well-known Factortame case that subordinated the Merchant Shipping Act 1988 to European law as adjudicated by the European Court of Justice. The power of decision has passed from this place to the Council of Ministers, but that is not the end of the matter. Those same Ministers are no longer accountable to the House....

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Chancellor's Department: Departmental Administration (14 Oct 1996)

Mr. Robert G. Hughes: Is my hon. Friend satisfied that the administrative reforms that he is undertaking will enable his Department sufficiently to pursue contempt of court cases? In particular, will the reforms enable his Department to examine the clear contempt of court of those who quote privileged court documents, including the disgraceful conduct of the right hon. Members for Sedgefield...

Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (23 Oct 1996)

Mr Barry Field: ...a crucial part in defeating the Spanish fleet just off the Isle of Wight. His ship was called Hope. I am sure that, with his love of books, my right hon.

Cattle Head Deboning Industry (13 Nov 1996)

Robert Key: ...60 former employees, who did everything that was asked of them and have been let down. What is to be done? It is not too late. The Government do not have to wait to be forced into action by the courts. There is something else, of course, that they can do: contribute the modest amount of money that we are asking for on behalf of our constituents. When the nightmare of BSE is behind us and...

Orders of the Day — Knives Bill (13 Dec 1996)

Mr Robert Hughes: ...to attempt to legislate on knives, and we are right to do so today. Nevertheless, my right hon. Friend the Minister and the police must keep a watching brief on precisely what is happening in the courts. They must consider whether we need to modify the law as we go along to catch the criminals.

Orders of the Day — Protection from Harassment Bill: Civil Remedy (17 Dec 1996)

Mr Robert Hughes: ...the desired effect. In the lines that the Labour party wants to leave out, exclusions have been made with the aim of clarifying the legislation, so that matters will be clear when a case comes to court—so that we know why and how people will be convicted, and there will be no let-out in the small print of the Bill. The hon. Member for Denton and Reddish (Mr. Bennett) wants to leave out...
