Arrests and Prison Capacity - Commons Urgent Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, public safety must at all times be our primary concern. The fact that we now have a shortage of prison spaces and that these contingency measures were even considered is worrying. The Government have said they have not put the measures in place this time, but of course this shortage of prison spaces has been building for a long time and is having a knock-on effect throughout the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156BA (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton. We welcome these amendments.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 150 (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, Section 3 of the Human Rights Act requires courts to interpret legislation compatibly with rights under the European Convention on Human Rights as far as is possible. Clauses 49 to 52 would disapply Section 3 to prisoners as a group when it comes to legislation about their release. It is disappointing to see this Government wasting parliamentary time and public money to remove human...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 120A (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I too acknowledge the work done by the Minister on IPP and the significant movement that there has been through the government amendments. It is right that IPP sentences were abolished. We share the concerns that lie behind many of these amendments. We have always sought to work constructively on a cross-party basis on this issue, which is why we are supporting the government...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 119YD (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I, too, thank the Minister for the government amendments in this group. The Government have listened carefully to the two previous Lord Chief Justices and decided that the High Court is the most appropriate place to hear parole referrals. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas, said that the Government’s amendments in this group were better than his, which has circumscribed the...

Parc Prison - Commons Urgent Question (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating that Answer to the Urgent Question. It was only yesterday that the Minister was answering an Urgent Question at that Dispatch Box about overcrowding in our prisons, and it was less than a week ago that Wandsworth prison received an urgent notification from the chief inspector about its unsatisfactory regime. Drug abuse and drug deaths form a common...

End of Custody Supervised Licence Scheme: Extension - Commons Urgent Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, the ECSL scheme was launched last October as a temporary response to the capacity crisis, which has seen the prison population soar to 88,000. At that time, it was for 35 days’ early release. The Government’s narrative was that this would relieve increasing pressure on prisons and allow probation staff to manage clients back into the community safely and effectively. That has...

Immigration Update - Statement ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating that Statement; I have a number of questions for him. What is the Government’s plan for the 99% of people who will not be sent to Rwanda? How will the Government fulfil the Prime Minister’s promise to detain everyone crossing the channel, given that there is fewer than one detention space for every 10 migrants who make that journey? Of the...

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Oates, for moving his regret Motion and for the way he did it so fully and so movingly, if I may say so. I also thank the two other Liberal Democrat Peers who have spoken. I thought the noble Lord, Lord Allan, had an interesting perspective, with the various questions he asked the Minister and the way he delved a little more into the fraud that is...

Ukraine: Small Boats - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, I visited Western Jet Foil just over a year ago, and I agree with Minister. I saw oversized rubber tyres which looked extremely dangerous, so I support the Minister in what he just said. I want to ask the Minister about the seizure of Russian assets. We have had the same answer from the Government on this question for a long time now. Will the Minister outline what concrete steps...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119BA (as an amendment to Amendment 119B) (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, the infected blood scandal is an appalling injustice. We in the Labour Party want to ensure that justice and compensation for victims and their families are delivered urgently, with guarantees of no further delays. Campaigning and advocacy organisations, alongside the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Haemophilia and Contaminated Blood, have worked tirelessly to help secure justice....

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119B (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: Before the Minister moves on from addressing my Amendment 119CA, I want just to be crystal clear that the Government are accepting the amendment without their own amendment. I understand what the noble Earl has just said from the Dispatch Box, but as far as my amendment is concerned, are the Government accepting it as it is?

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 118 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, this has been a short but interesting debate. I acknowledge the points that the Minister made on my Amendment 118, about the existing consultation that the Government are doing and the broadness of the amendment. What was contained in the amendment was an aspiration, I suppose. My noble friend spoke to Amendment 119 and gave the very moving example of Jenni Hicks. The noble...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 114 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, these were probing amendments. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Marks, for his support and for the arguments which he advanced. It seemed to me that the gist of the Minister’s response was that there was a lack of evidential basis for the requirements, which I outlined in my amendments. That may well be the case, but I did not hear from the Minister any desire to get that evidential...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 118 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, Amendment 118 opens this seventh group. It concerns publicly funded legal representation for bereaved people at inquests following a major incident. We would have preferred to table an amendment extending publicly funded legal representation to all bereaved people at inquests, but I understand that was not in scope. It has been a long-standing Labour commitment to extend publicly...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 114 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, this group concerns the victims’ code for major incidents. In speaking to Amendment 114, I am speaking to all the other amendments in this group as well. We believe that this Bill represents a missed opportunity to extend entitlements of the victims’ code to victims of major incidents. Victims of major incidents will have suffered serious harm, often at the hands of state or...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 102 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Ponsonby of Shulbrede: My Lords, this group of amendments is concerned with the scope and role of the independent advocate. I open by paying tribute to the work that my noble friend Lord Wills has done on this role for many years now through a number of Private Members’ Bills. If he chooses to test the opinion of the House on his Amendment 119AA, we will support it. I shall speak briefly to the amendments in my...
