    AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF PUBLIC BUSINESS

    Notice of Motion

      Mr Tony Newton

            Transport:    That the Railtrack Group PLC (Target Investment Limit) Order 1996 (S.I. 1996, No. 2551) be referred to a Standing Committee on Delegated Legislation.

    To be decided forthwith, pursuant to Standing Order No. 101 (4).


    ORDERS OF THE DAY AND NOTICES OF MOTIONS

    Those marked * are Government Orders of the Day

    *1 CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (SCOTLAND) BILL: Second Reading.
    Mr Tony Blair
    Mr John Prescott
    Mr George Robertson
    Mr John McFall
    Mr Donald Dewar
    Mr Eric Clarke
          That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Bill which, without proper review or study, seeks to reverse the key reforms introduced in the Prisoners and Criminal Proceedings (Scotland) Act 1993 passed in this Parliament; proposes to introduce, without any Scottish piloting or examination, electronic tagging for offenders and lays the way open for electronic tagging of offenders under the age of 16, thereby threatening the operation of Scotland's unique Children's Hearings system; provides hopelessly optimistic and unrealistic estimated costs and manpower implications; and miserably fails to address the real problems of crime in Scotland which have so greatly increased in the last seventeen years.
    Mr Paddy Ashdown
    Mr A. J. Beith
    Mr James Wallace
    Mr Menzies Campbell
    Mr Alex Carlile
    Mr Archy Kirkwood
          That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Bill which fails to establish a system of sentencing which adequately protects the public and ensures the rehabilitation of offenders and the alleviation of crime; fails to address the decline in conviction rates and will undermine the securing of convictions in certain cases; will require the building of unnecessary new prisons which will divert funding from essential law and order services including policing and crime prevention; undermines the doctrine of the separation of powers and fetters the proper role of judicial discretion; will damage the process of parole leading to a greater risk to the public; fails to seek restorative justice and the incorporation of victims into the justice system; and seeks to bring additional bureaucracy to the system of criminal legal aid and the denial of choice to many accused persons.
    2 CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (SCOTLAND) BILL [MONEY]: Queen's Recommendation signified.
    Mr Michael Jack
          That, for the purposes of any Act resulting from the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Bill, there shall be paid out of money provided by Parliament--
      (a) any expenses incurred by the Secretary of State--
            (i) in respect of contracts for the remote monitoring of restriction of liberty orders;
            (ii) in respect of common police services in Scotland;
      (b) any expenses incurred by the Scottish Legal Aid Board in relation to--
            (i) the employment by it of solicitors for the purpose of providing criminal legal assistance;
            (ii) contracts entered into by it with firms of solicitors for the provision of criminal legal assistance;
      (c) any expenses incurred by the Lord Advocate in respect of grants for the provision of forensic medical services; and
      (d) any increase attributable to this Act in the sums so payable out of money so provided under any other Act.
    To be decided forthwith, pursuant to Standing Order No. 50A(1)(a).
    3 CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (SCOTLAND) BILL
    Mr Secretary Forsyth

        That the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Bill may be proceeded with as if it had been certified by the Speaker as relating exclusively to Scotland.

        On the Motion for the Adjournment of the House under Standing Order No. 9 Mr Roy Hughes proposes to raise the subject of Her Majesty's Goverment's policy towards VAT on toll charges.
