Edinburgh Cup 4-5 October 2014

Edinburgh Cup (4-5 october 2014)
Round 1: This House Believes that governments should negotiate with terrorists when their citizens are taken hostage by terrorist groups
Round 2: This House would allow international commercial surrogacy
Round 3: This House supports “No Platform” policies in student unions
Round 4: This House would pay reparations to former mining communities in the UK
R5 This house believes that government regulation agencies should be allowed to break up banks, like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase and HSBC, that are deemed ’too big to fail’.
Semi THBT governments should prioritise economically productive public spending over investing in arts, humanities, etc. when deciding on their budget.
Final: TH, as the UK Labour party, would participate in a cross party initiative to reform the Human Rights Act.
Infoslide: The Conservatives outlined proposed changes to the Human Rights Act. Under the proposal announced on Friday, a victorious Conservative party would draw up a Bill of Rights that would set out the application of human rights law in Britain.
The proposed changes would mean the European court's rulings would no longer be binding over the Supreme Court and that Britain's parliament would have the right to veto its judgments. It is unclear at this stage whether there would be any substantive changes to the rights set out in the legislation.
