Scottish Parliament: Factoring Services (4 Mar 2010)

Jim Tolson: important and welcome impetus for Patricia Ferguson's proposal and for taking the issue forward. I have always supported the Liberal Democrats' long campaign to establish, as the amendment in Robert Brown's name states, a "mandatory accreditation scheme to cover private, public and voluntary sector property managers." The scheme would include definitions that would focus on improving...

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day-First Part]: Defence (1 Mar 2010)

Robert Key: ...certainly most of them were. The amendment also refers to improved medical services. Of course that is true. What happened at Selly Oak is controversial but very good; what is happening in Headley Court is very good; support for combat stress is very good. It is also true to say, however, that the military depend to a substantial extent on the national health service. The demise of the old...

Scottish Parliament: Representing Constituents (24 Feb 2010)

Robert Brown: ...the constituent complaint should be handled is simply not compatible with the repeated statement by the First Minister on the matter. The relationship between the Parliament, the Government and the courts is delicate. MSPs and, even more so, ministers must be very careful about putting themselves in a position where they seek to influence or even appear to seek to influence the courts. The...

Road Traffic Accidents (Compensation and Sentencing) (23 Feb 2010)

Rob Wilson: ...made and too often process-driven justice system. I believe that both these cases raise serious issues about the general state of sentencing and Government policy. I will begin with the case of Mr. Robert Hudson, and I will try to deal only with the facts as they are known. Mr. Hudson died of brain injuries after being hit by an unlicensed driver, Mandy Lewis, in December 2008. He was...

Scottish Parliament: Female Offenders in the Criminal Justice System (11 Feb 2010)

Marlyn Glen: ...particularly pleased that the topic of female offenders has moved up the political agenda. Members across the chamber seem to agree that action has to be taken to turn round the dismal picture that Robert Brown and others have painted. I am, however, disappointed that the cabinet secretary chose not to concentrate on responding to the serious recommendations of the committee's report and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Binyam Mohamed (10 Feb 2010)

Julian Lewis: According to comments made by the great theorist of counter-insurgency, Sir Robert Thompson, more than 40 years ago, not only is prisoner abuse morally wrong, but it is lethal to any counter-insurgency campaign. I appreciate that the Foreign Secretary cannot or does not wish to comment on the particular case that is before the courts, but in response to the hon. Member for Kingston and...

Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Temporary Provisions) Bill (Allocation of Time): Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Temporary Provisions) Bill (8 Feb 2010)

Robert Syms: ...-was used for outturns and objectives that Parliament did not intend. It is a pity that we are back today because the Government did not originally introduce a Bill to overturn the Supreme Court ruling. The Supreme Court has not been going that long, and I suspect that there will always be some tensions between such a body and Parliament. Nevertheless, given its short history, it is a pity...

Written Answers — Justice: Fines (5 Feb 2010)

Robert Goodwill: ...under the terms of the Council Framework Decision 2005/214/JHA on the application of the principle of mutual recognition of financial penalties; and how many such applications have proceeded to court.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Desecration of War Memorials (3 Feb 2010)

David Burrowes: ...primarily accounts for seriousness on the basis of financial value of the damage. Unless the damage caused costs more than £5,000 to repair and replace, the maximum sentence that the magistrates court can hand down is three months in prison. This simply does not accurately reflect the seriousness of the crime. The Bill would amend the Criminal Damage Act 1971 to recognise damage to war...

Uk Arrest Warrants (Alleged War Crimes) (28 Jan 2010)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...The House will be aware that I have tabled early-day motion 502, which has been signed by 101 Members who support it. It expresses concern about the restriction of the universal jurisdiction of UK courts in matters of human rights law. The background to this case rests, as my hon. Friend explained, on a number of conventions, but more recently it has rested on the case of General Pinochet....

Holocaust Memorial Day: Leeds City Council Bill (28 Jan 2010)

Edward Leigh: ...peddling in a small way, with two milk floats joined together, when she was sentenced the magistrates took into account that she had to pay a £110,000 confiscation order issued by Swansea Crown court in 2007 for possessing goods with false trademarks. I cannot believe that such a lady could have such property and I can only assume that that fine was a maximum amount. I only mention this...

Scottish Parliament: Newspaper Industry (28 Jan 2010)

Elizabeth Smith: ...core argument is very much about the democratic process and allowing communities to find both a strong voice and a reliable and regular source of information and news. As many members, including Robert Brown, Robin Harper, Hugh Henry and David Whitton, have eloquently said, this is not an easy age, when the communication process is so sophisticated and highly competitive, but we must...

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (19 Jan 2010)

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: water down the gender pay gap information clause. They seek to remove Clause 78 in its entirety and replace it with a clause that would only require an employer to publish a pay audit if a court or employment tribunal found that they had contravened the provisions of the Act relating to equal pay. In other words, the position of the Official Opposition as I understand it is that they do...

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jan 2010)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ..., although she meant it perhaps in a wider sense. These are not hypothetical cases but instances which have occurred. There are others, such as the example recently of a decision in a European court to require in Italy the removal of crucifixes from public places in schools where they have been historically placed for many centuries. We are taking some of this argument to absurd lengths...
