Canlyniadau 81–100 o 4313 ar gyfer speaker:Sarah Teather

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: New Clause 37 - Protection from slavery from overseas domestic workers (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: Will the Minister write to Committee members before Report about what she means by enabling people to have that information in their terms and conditions?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: New Clause 35 - Provision of NHS services to victims of modern slavery (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I will be as brief as I can. The new clause was tabled in the names of the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate and myself to probe issues around access to health care. Earlier, the Minister said health care workers are particularly important in carrying out front-line identification, but they can do that only if people access the health...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: New Clause 35 - Provision of NHS services to victims of modern slavery (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I shall certainly withdraw it. I would be grateful if I could have a discussion with the Minster, and perhaps also with my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate when he returns, because this is a really important issue. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 44 - Duty to notify NCA about suspected victims of slavery or human trafficking (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I do not want to detain the Committee long, but I have a couple of slight nagging concerns about clause 46. It contains powers of huge breadth that allow the Secretary of State to amend any Act or subordinate legislation where she thinks it appropriate as a consequence of the Bill becoming law. The Government’s delegated power memorandum accepts that that is a very broad power, but points...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 42 - Guidance about identifying and supporting victims (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I shall not detain the Committee further. I am grateful for the Minister’s reassurance that she will listen carefully and pass on the Committee’s comments to the reviewer. I look forward to the full results of the review and the debate in the Lords. Perhaps we shall see the results of the amendments back in the Commons at a later stage.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 43 - Presumption about age (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I want to make a few remarks further to those made by the hon. Member for Rotherham. This is a very welcome clause and I look forward to the Minister’s response to the hon. Member for Rotherham, who raised important issues. I agree with her that a local authority should never undertake an age assessment as a matter of course, but only when it is really necessary to determine the age of a...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 42 - Guidance about identifying and supporting victims (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: A few weeks ago, I spent a long day at Yarl’s Wood. I was allowed to go through the booking system so that I could experience what a woman about to be detained would go through. What struck me during that process was the way that women are questioned in an open forum without any privacy. They are asked a series of closed questions, which makes it difficult for women to disclose sensitive...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: To clarify, I tabled these amendments for two reasons. First, it seems to me that unaccompanied migrant children have exactly the same vulnerabilities as trafficked children, so they would benefit from this system. Secondly, in a more narrow vision of the scheme, there are difficulties in identifying which children are trafficked and which are not, so at the very least providing guardians or...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: The key point is that a person cannot challenge whether there are reasonable grounds to state whether or not they have been trafficked, except via legal aid. If we are to make the system coherent, that key point needs to be addressed.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 42 - Guidance about identifying and supporting victims (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: The debate on the previous clause was very positive: I wonder whether we can have an equally positive one now. I feel a lot more cheerful than I did when I arrived this morning. Proposed new clause 22 is one of three that have been tabled that seek to place in statute a referral mechanism for victims of human trafficking. The current NRM was introduced in 2009 to meet the UK’s obligations...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: The point that the Minister is making is important, but she was asked in an intervention a minute ago whether the Government would commit to enacting what the review comes up with, and I want to be clear that all parts of the Government will commit to that. It is no good if the answer from the trial is that, as structured, the advocates are not working well because of fundamental flaws with...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I do not know whether the Minister understood my point—

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: Will the recommendations go both to her and to the Minister responsible for child protection, or just to her? I want to be clear that the lines of authority for enacting changes go across both Departments.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I am sorry to intervene on the Minister again—she is being generous. On the evaluation by the university of Bedfordshire, it would be helpful if she would make clear how we will measure success. Will she put into the public domain—or at least before the Committee—what the university will be looking at? To come back to my earlier intervention, there is a real risk, as I have seen before,...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 41 - Child trafficking advocates (14 Hyd 2014)

Sarah Teather: I have tabled several amendments that would expand the scope of child trafficking advocates to all separated migrant children. I welcome the inclusion of advocates in the Bill, and I support amendment 42, which was tabled by the hon. Member for Enfield, Southgate and moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton. That amendment would strengthen the clause to provide that the Secretary of...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: My remarks will be brief, as amendments 89 and 90 are probing amendments. They are designed to clarify exactly what the Government intend in terms of the purpose of schedule 3 and its relationship with the statutory defence. As the hon. Member for Foyle said, the schedule contains a very long list of offences for which the defence created in clause 39(1) will not apply. There are 134...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: The problem is that situations can become so normalised for children that they have no idea whether they are forced to do something or not. If interviewed and questioned about what they thought, the chances are that they would not give the right answer to allow that defence to take place. When we discuss some of the later amendments, I will want to quote from a particular case where somebody...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: Without making it clear that children cannot be compelled in the same way and that the test should be very different—the Bill does not make that clear—I cannot see how it will prevent children from being prosecuted. I return to the point that my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate made that we must avoid children going into the criminal justice system in the first place. I know...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 Med 2014)

Sarah Teather: I have a further thought about the point the Minister made of the scenario where the person was trafficked, escaped from traffickers and went on to commit myriad crimes. I want to remind her that the amendment tabled by the hon. Member for Foyle does not allow for that. The wording leaves in that the illegal act has to be “attributable to slavery”. What the Minister said is simply not...
