See video of my Parliamentary question here
The government have introduced another piece of legislation that will potentially give Ministers the power to make up laws? The Private International Law Bill appears to give Ministers the ability to make up new laws when seeking resolutions in disputes between individual and companies. I’ve been questioning the Minister about their intention to attach criminal fines and imprisonment to civil disputes. It is wrong in principle, for any secondary legislation to extend the provisions and powers in primary legislation. It becomes very dangerous if Ministers are doing this and making criminals of people.
