Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 20 - No order made: reconsideration of case (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that if that is the intention and effect of the operation under the clause, it would be most unhelpful? It would muddy further an often misunderstood distinction between confiscation and forfeiture. Forfeiture would be the appropriate avenue for the court in relation to the car to which he refers.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 20 - No order made: reconsideration of case (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: The Minister just imported some interesting words into the Bill that are not currently there. He referred to a ``direct and immediate'' result. That is not the wording of the Bill, which is ``as a result''. There is no need for immediacy or directness under the Bill.

Scotland Act (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I can understand why the hon. Gentleman feels it necessary to defend himself and, to an extent, to revisit history. However, I invite him to move the debate forward and to address the points on which we probably agree: the retention of a more substantial number of MSPs than 105 is essential for the effective operation of the Scottish Parliament and, as he says, the views of the MSPs must be,...

Scotland Act (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: Regardless of who may have said what to whom in meetings that may or may not have taken place, has the hon. Gentleman considered the proceedings in Committee and on Report of the then Scotland Bill? Does he accept that it was made clear at that stage, at least in spirit, that the size of the Scottish Parliament would be maintained at the current level?

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Public Service Orders (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans she has to extend the provision of public service orders.

Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Public Service Orders (27 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what criteria have to be met in order for a route to be granted a public service order.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 12 - Time for payment (22 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I have briefly considered the terms of clause 24. It is a generally commendable provision, and I look forward to debating it in due course. My only observation is that subsection 24(2) appears to require application of the provisions of clause 10, but that there is no provision for reopening matters otherwise. If one gets it wrong the first time, I do not see what is to stop one getting it...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 12 - Time for payment (22 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: While associating myself with the remarks of my hon. Friend the Minister of State, may I bring it to the hon. Gentleman's attention that such action will be coming at the end of a complex inquisitory procedure? Surely the courts should have a substantial amount of information at their disposal by the time we proceed under subsection (2).

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 12 - Time for payment (22 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move amendment No. 61, in page 6, line 41, leave out from `made' to end of line 42.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 12 - Time for payment (22 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: In addition to my normal dose of sweet reason and good nature, I bring a particularly unpleasant north isles bug to the Committee today, which I shall do my best not to share. If I do not run out of arguments, I fear that I shall run out of voice. The genesis of the amendment is in a briefing received from a body styling itself the Law Society. As a member of the Law Society of Scotland, I...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 12 - Time for payment (22 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I was interested to see the amendment on the amendment paper, but I am more interested to hear that the basis on which it is offered is one of practicality. From a practical point of view, although I accept that the hon. Gentleman tabled it in a spirit of helpfulness, the amendment might cause confusion, because subsections (2) onwards provide for payment to be made within a certain amount of...

Written Answers — International Development: World Trade Organisation (21 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if she will make a statement on the implications of the outcome of the WTO 4 ministerial conference for developing countries.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I do not particularly like the expression ``habitual criminal for gain''. It is a particularly inelegant way of expressing it. However, I am persuaded on balance that it is probably preferable to ``criminal lifestyle'' and I would be the first to admit that I cannot come up with anything better.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I do not know that I can fault the hon. Gentleman. There is a serious point to me made here among the jokes about Essex and the rest. That is certainly worthy of consideration. I hope that the Minister will take it on board. If we vote on the amendment at the end of the debate, I am minded to support the Conservatives. There is something rather nebulous about saying ``criminal lifestyle''....

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: Yes, the hon. Gentleman makes a good point. When the hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok raised his objection it occurred to me that the solution to his point could be put into clause 75. There are severe problems with the term ``criminal lifestyle''. I invite the Minister to think again and in the meantime I am prepared to support the Conservative amendment.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I listened to the Minister with a growing sense of foreboding. To hear him trumpet the use of confiscation orders in cases of licensing offences bodes ill for the future. My words about the agency being swamped may be sadly prophetic. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. Davidson) for his reflections. Had he reflected more quickly, I might not have pressed the earlier...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: That may be the case but, for every scenario, the opposite is equally possible. The hon. Gentleman may feel differently in other circumstances, as it depends on the Secretary of State or the Minister of the day, with whom he may not always sympathise politically. He is inviting the Committee to second-guess what will happen, which is not an effective way of legislating. We must consider the...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: I beg to move amendment No. 23, in page 3, leave out lines 22 to 26. Flushed with the success of that moral victory—

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 6 - Making of order (15 Tach 2001)

Alistair Carmichael: Funnily enough, yes. As a Scottish football supporter and a Liberal Democrat, what else would I be expected to say?
