Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (4 Feb 2015)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lady Hamwee, and I thank the Minister for guiding the Bill so ably and patiently through the House. I am aware of the time, so I will try not to keep the House too long. Until now, the debate has been about putting on to a statutory footing the powers that some specified organisations will have and some that they will not. The Minister, along with others who...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (4 Feb 2015)

Lord Scriven: The Minister has given those figures, but it also says clearly in the impact assessment that there are some areas where the risk has not been assessed for Prevent requirement purposes. It is not possible to estimate accurately how much will be required for additional Prevent activities. So the figures in the impact assessment are completely irrelevant because, in many areas, the assessment as...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 Feb 2015)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I, too, support my noble friend in Amendment 13A. I want to share my experience as a former leader of Sheffield City Council to say how difficult this is. We make a grave mistake by talking about the Muslim community as though it is a homogenous group of people. They are people with many different beliefs, different processes and different understandings of what is happening...

Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse — Statement (4 Feb 2015)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, the Minister mentioned the Rotherham report. The report out today finds that Rotherham Borough Council has been involved in covering up information and suppressing whistleblowers, and it concludes that those closely associated with past failures need to let others make a fresh start. Does the Minister agree that any officer or councillor who is implicated in that report, or who...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Jan 2015)

Lord Scriven: Where do GPs, as part of the health service, fit into the system?

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Jan 2015)

Lord Scriven: If it is a function across health professionals and health services, the proportion of people who come into contact with an acute trust is significantly small. Why have the health service and GPs been excluded from the duty, yet consultants who see the minority of patients have been included? What is the significant difference in order for the Government to be making that delineation of...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Jan 2015)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I apologise to the Committee for not having taken part in the Second Reading of the Bill, but I was out of the country. I wish to speak to this amendment because I was the leader of Sheffield City Council at the time when the Prevent strategy came in. I think that we may be going down the road of repeating past mistakes. When Prevent was brought in, it was not statutory but it was...

Economic Leadership for Cities — Motion to Take Note (11 Dec 2014)

Lord Scriven: Maiden Speech: My Lords, I rise before you today with a sense of pride—pride in the fact that I come from a very humble background: born in a council estate in Huddersfield, the son of a refuse collector and a hospital cleaner—but also with a sense of nervousness. As I look round the House at all the experience, the wisdom and the knowledge, I understand that in my five minutes I have to...
