Wilson Doctrine — Question (22 Jul 2015)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government which methods of communication used by members of either House of Parliament are not presently subject to the Wilson doctrine.

Wilson Doctrine — Question (22 Jul 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, David Anderson’s recent report confirmed what we already knew from Edward Snowden—namely, that, every day, GCHQ is hoovering up the private data of millions of innocent citizens without the informed consent of Parliament. Can the Minister explain how the Government manage to comply with the Wilson doctrine by excluding the private data of parliamentarians when they are...

Investigatory Powers — Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I am reluctant to delay us on an evening when there are some transport problems, but it may have slipped the Minister’s mind that I asked him a question concerning how the Government slipped through powers giving themselves the right to hack into computers and phones without any reference to or discussion in Parliament.

Investigatory Powers — Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, on behalf of those who sit on these Benches, I start by paying tribute to the dedicated and highly successful performance of the police and the agencies in keeping the people of this country safe from terrorism. While each successful attack is a severe personal tragedy for those involved and their families, we should reflect with some satisfaction on the fact that half way through...

Communications Data — Question (17 Jun 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, there are half a dozen or so civil liberties organisations that could greatly assist the Government in coming up with a balanced investigatory powers Bill. Which civil liberties organisations have the Government consulted?

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (2 Jun 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, we live in dangerous times—the danger of imported terrorism from various parts of the world; threats from newly aggressive Russia and China; and danger from rogue nuclear states such as Iran and North Korea. However, the biggest peril we face is losing, or throwing away, the freedoms, liberty, privacy and lifestyle that have set this country apart from others in the...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (2 Mar 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I gave my noble friend the Minister advance notice of my questions. He has made a very good attempt at answering them and I thank him for that. Obviously, the devil will be in the detail of the code of practice. I will very gladly accept his invitation to come and discuss that with him. Clearly, we will all return to this subject in the new Parliament when the Anderson review is...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (2 Mar 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, when this Bill was last debated in another place, the Home Office rejected a new clause tabled by Julian Huppert and backed by cross-party Back-Benchers that was very similar to this Amendment 11 but had a number of key differences. My amendment seeks to probe the justification, if there is any, for the Government’s omission of those provisions. The first of these relates to...

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Machines — Question for Short Debate (24 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend for giving way. He says that he cannot predict the effect of these changes. Let me help him. Changing the planning law will have no effect on the existing betting shops.

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Machines — Question for Short Debate (24 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, since confessions seem to be the fashion, I will admit to liking a little flutter myself. In this matter, there are many knowns and a few unknowns. We know that FOBTs are different from all other gambling machines on the high street because their maximum stake is 50 times higher, 100 as opposed to 2. This makes them suitable for addictive casino games, mainly roulette,...

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Machines — Question for Short Debate (24 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: I think the noble Lord will find that although the total numbers are not changing very much, they are migrating towards the poorest areas.

Written Answers — Home Office: Electronic Surveillance (12 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the recommendation from the Interception of Communications Commissioner that judicial authorisation is obtained in cases where communications data are sought to determine the source of journalistic information, whether they intend to implement the recommendation; and, if so, when.

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Terminals — Question (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to mitigate the misuse of fixed-odds betting terminals in betting shops.

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Terminals — Question (9 Feb 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, one man recently laundered nearly 1 million in drug money through these machines in Coral betting shops in the north-east. Can my noble friend the Minister explain why the Government’s rather feeble plan to set the maximum stake to 50 or 100 will make any difference at all to money laundering or to the extensive gambling addiction that these machines cause,...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (26 Jan 2015)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I confess that I do not really know where to start. I think it is true that all the previous speakers are former members of what I would call the security establishment: they are former policemen, former Home Office Ministers or former spies—I am not sure in which category I would put the noble Lord, Lord Armstrong. I think I am the first to speak more as an individual and a...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Electronic Surveillance (2 Dec 2014)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government which Acts of Parliament prohibit the use of international mobile subscriber identity catchers to monitor and jam mobile devices in a locality.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Electronic Surveillance (11 Nov 2014)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how official police use of international mobile subscriber identity catchers is authorised.

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, it has been an interesting debate. The House seems to have one view and the Minister seems to have another. I thank noble Lords who have partaken in the debate: my noble friends Lord Black and Lord Thomas, and the noble Baronesses, Lady Cohen and Lady Smith. I do not think that the Minister was listening to what I said. Everyone outside the Home Office and the Foreign Office knows...
