Press Regulation — Question (2 April 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords—

Intelligence and Security Committee — Question (4 March 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, the Americans have been vigorously debating surveillance and the internet for more than six months. Yesterday the shadow Home Secretary joined in, and today the Deputy Prime Minister made an excellent contribution. When will the Home Office and the Foreign Office abandon their pretence that all is well and that there is nothing to discuss?

Project Tempora — Question (20 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government which Minister first authorised GCHQ’s Project Tempora; when that happened; and why they did not disclose the existence of Project Tempora to the Joint Committee on the Draft Communications Data Bill.

Project Tempora — Question (20 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend for the Answer that she was required to give. In a democracy, wholesale untargeted state intrusion into the private lives of all the people, such as Project Tempora, is unacceptable unless it has the informed consent of the people via their Parliament. However, Parliament has not been informed and has not given its consent to Tempora; nor has the Cabinet, the National...

Security Services: Supervision — Question for Short Debate (7 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Soley, for initiating this important debate. Let me start with two tributes. First, I pay tribute to our security services which do an excellent job of keeping us safe. My second tribute goes jointly to the American whistleblower Edward Snowden and to the Guardian, which has published his astonishing revelations. Both have been brave and highly...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000: External Communications — Question (30 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what guidelines Secretaries of State adopt in deciding whether electronic communications sent from the United Kingdom to a United Kingdom addressee but routed outside the United Kingdom fall within the definition of “external communications” in Section 20 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000: External Communications — Question (30 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend the Minister for her reply. We now know that GCHQ is routinely hoovering up and storing prodigious quantities of the internet communications of millions of innocent people, turning us all from citizens into suspects. As far as I am aware, Parliament has not sanctioned this industrial-scale seizure of our private data by the state. Can the Minister please tell the House...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether a warrant from a Secretary of State is required for GCHQ to collect or store or intercept a spoken or written conversation over the internet when that conversation is between two United Kingdom citizens both located in the United Kingdom and where the data making up the conversation takes a route (1) wholly within, or (2) partially outside, the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether any further authorisation, over and above a certificate issued under section 8 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, is required for GCHQ to carry out untargeted collection and storage of data as it passes over fibre optic cables carrying internet traffic either (1) wholly within the United Kingdom, or (2) at the point where such a...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether GCHQ collects and stores untargeted data as it passes over internet infrastructure; and, if so, under what legal authority.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (4 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what extra powers they intend to provide to GCHQ under a Communications Data Bill to collect and store internet communications over and above those powers already in use in order to fill the capability gap identified by Home Office witnesses to the Joint Committee which scrutinised the draft Communications Data Bill.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Wilson Doctrine (3 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the Wilson Doctrine on the interception of MPs' telephone calls still applies; whether it covers internet-based communications; and whether it applies to members of the House of Lords.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Security: National Security (24 June 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many of the 197 intelligence reports received by GCHQ in the 12 months to May 2012 which were generated by the National Security Agency’s PRISM system were individually authorised by a Minister.

Government Communications Headquarters — Statement (10 June 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I apologise for arriving during the reading of this Statement but, in my defence, I was late because I was listening to it from the horse’s mouth, from the Foreign Secretary in another place. In the USA, it would seem that politicians have been asleep at the wheel while their security and intelligence services have helped themselves to anyone’s private data without any...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 February 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank the noble Viscount for giving way. That was not my question. My question was: which of the removed rights is going to increase the motivation of the employees and therefore improve the performance of the business?

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 February 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I am sorry to keep jumping up and down, but I still have not heard from the Minister how the withdrawal of all or any of the rights will improve the performance of any business.

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 February 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, when I spoke to the first group of amendments I declared my interests as an entrepreneur. I forgot also to declare that in a former life I used to play cricket with Mr Adrian Beecroft, who is a very charming man and a very fine opening bat and cover fielder. However, to my knowledge he has no personal experience of starting or running a business. It strikes me that the authors of...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 February 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I declare an interest. Before I joined this House I was a serial entrepreneur. I have started many businesses from scratch. The most recent one employed 200 staff after being in business for four years. I am a big fan of giving employees a stake in the success of the business so that their goals are aligned with those of the founders. It never crossed my mind that my staff should...
