Crime and Security Bill: New Clause 3 — Alcohol disorder zones (8 Mar 2010)

Alan Campbell: I apologise. Clearly I have not explained to the right hon. Gentleman exactly what I am saying. I am not saying that that is the only purpose of alcohol disorder zones. If anyone said, "We intend to set up an alcohol disorder zone because we believe it's necessary to deal with the conditions in our area," we would applaud that. We are saying that not only does the power have a practical...

Crime and Security Bill: New Clause 3 — Alcohol disorder zones (8 Mar 2010)

Alan Campbell: Local authorities, licensing authorities and the police express an interest in using a full range of powers. The hon. Member for Hornchurch criticises the work that Home Office officials and the police do, day in day out, throughout the country in the areas worst affected by alcohol-related disorder, to decide which powers are most applicable and how to use them better. That may involve...

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: This has been a very lively and useful debate, with significant contributions from those in all parts of the House. It is the first time that the hon. Member for Christchurch (Mr. Chope) seems to have worried about detaining Members, and the first time that I have heard him decry or not take up the opportunity to take an independent stance, even if that means offending his Whips....

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: I am sure that we are grateful for that, and the independent judgment appears to be not to vote against the measure. I am grateful for the contribution from my right hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, East (Keith Vaz), who reminded us of the important work of the Home Affairs Committee. I am grateful also for his supportive comments about the proposal if not the process, and I, too, hope...

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: Yes, I-

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: My apologies, Mr. Deputy Speaker. When one has alighted on a particular set of proposals, they must be proportionate-the House would be aghast if they were not-and that takes a period of deliberation. One does not always alight on a particular measure at an appropriate time. Sometimes, however, legislative measures are brought forward that provide the opportunity for those measures to be...

Royal Assent: Crime and Security Bill (10 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: Then let me say that there will be opportunities for further debate during later stages of the proceedings on the Bill, whether in Committee, in the remaining stages, or in another place; and subsequent to that if the proposals are accepted. I regard this as the start of a debate, not the conclusion. We are proposing an important and timely additional measure. I commend the motion to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firearm and Shotgun Licences (8 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: In March 2009, 62 police officers were employed in the firearms and explosives functions in England and Wales, alongside 582 police staff of whom five were police community support officers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Firearm and Shotgun Licences (8 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: The number of firearms offences has fallen in each of the last five years, partly because we have some of the tightest controls on legally held guns to prevent them from being used by criminals. It is true that legally held weapons are being stolen, and the Association of Chief Police Officers and the British Shooting Sports Council are trying to establish what further advice is necessary.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (8 Feb 2010)

Alan Campbell: I do not believe that anyone has been misled in this regard. People were consulted over the transformation programme. It is important that the FSS undergoes this change in order that we secure the remaining sites. The work that will be undertaken on those sites is a very important part of fighting crime. The transformation process is absolutely essential.

UK Human Trafficking Centre — [Mr. Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jan 2010)

Alan Campbell: This has been a thoughtful debate, which has included contributions from my hon. Friend the Member for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart), my right hon. Friends the Members for Leicester, East (Keith Vaz)-the distinguished Chair of the Select Committee on Home Affairs-and for Rotherham (Mr. MacShane), and the hon. Members for Wellingborough (Mr. Bone), for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake) and...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Alan Campbell: I was simply making the point that we have no intention of keeping samples. We will be keeping profiles.

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Alan Campbell: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr. Cummings. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Pudsey (Mr. Truswell) on securing the debate and the way in which his contribution recognised, in a very balanced way, both the progress that has been made in recent years by police forces, including the West Yorkshire force, and the challenges that those forces still face. I welcome...

West Yorkshire Police (Funding) (6 Jan 2010)

Alan Campbell: Yes, of course, but in many ways that is what happens. In many cases, the money that comes into the Home Office as part of that 50 per cent. goes to finance officers in the first place, and the officers then collect assets. We want them to collect more. Particularly in a recession, even if cars and houses are seized, income can fall, if we are not careful, and we want to ensure that that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: DNA Database (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: In the past 12 months, 98 under-10s were removed, and 350 individuals in England and Wales, under the exceptional case procedure.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: DNA Database (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: We are bringing forward proposals in the Crime and Security Bill to address the concerns of the European Court of Human Rights. We are introducing measures regarding children that we believe are more proportionate and that will meet the Court's requirements, but it is important to recognise that the presence of the DNA of people who have been arrested but not convicted forms an important part...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: DNA Database (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: We are looking at the guidance that is currently available, but as part of the Crime and Security Bill we are also bringing forward measures to make sure that the deletion of people from the database is put on a statutory footing for the first time, which will be an important step forward.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: DNA Database (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: The Scottish model was not based on any research because none was available at the time. The hon. Gentleman talked about deletion after three years and used the word "normally". In fact, it can be three years plus two years, plus two years ad infinitum. Thus, by comparison, that system could for some people be more draconian than our proposals. It is also based on keeping samples rather than...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: DNA Database (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: That is why we are bringing forward statutory provisions in the Crime and Security Bill to make sure that when deletions are appropriate, they are made easier.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: North Yorkshire Police (14 Dec 2009)

Alan Campbell: The recent pre-Budget report confirmed that sufficient funding will be available in the years to 2012-13 to enable police authorities to maintain current numbers of warranted police officers and police community support officers.
