BBC: Finance and Independence — Motion to Take Note (10 Sep 2015)

Lord Cashman: some of the multinationals and financial institutions of this country, you will see that they pale into insignificance. There is also a real concern that this “review” is there to do the work of News International and the BBC’s other competitors. When the Green Paper was announced, a press release said that the BBC Trust would play its part in an, “open and...

Future of the BBC — Question for Short Debate (14 Jul 2015)

Lord Patten of Barnes: ...say the same about my confidence in some of their colleagues and I wish I had a little more confidence in some the adolescent ideologues who dominate so much of this debate with the encouragement of News International and Mr Murdoch’s empire. The deal that was done last week was appalling—trying to turn the BBC into a branch office of the Department for Work and Pensions is...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: News International (9 Jul 2015)

Tom Watson: To ask the Prime Minister, what meetings he has had with representatives of News International since his reappointment as Prime Minister in May 2015.

Cycling (16 Oct 2014)

Ian Austin: ..., the CTC, Sustrans and the Bicycle Association among others. I particularly want to thank Chris Boardman, a phenomenal advocate of cycling in Britain, and Phil Goodwin and Adam Coffman who pulled the report together. I also thank News International, now News UK, for sponsoring the inquiry. Its involvement was the result of a campaign by The Times. Those on The Times have done a phenomenal...

Bills Presented: Backbench Business — Select Committee on Governance of the House (10 Sep 2014)

Paul Farrelly: from the Government or from within the House. Two years ago, for example, the Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport produced a damning report naming people who had misled the House over phone hacking and a cover-up at News International. Those conclusions, under our old procedures, now lie parked with the Standards and Privileges Committees for further action. When we came to...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Second Reading (30 Jun 2014)

Lord Blair of Boughton: ...states: “Nothing in this section affects what constitutes the offence of misconduct in public office”. Where is the evidence that existing legislation is inadequate? When the Milly Dowler case broke in 2011, a leader in the Times—a News International newspaper—declared that what had been revealed was “police corruption on an industrial scale”. I do not...

Business of the House (26 Jun 2014)

Angela Eagle: ...8220;exciting” that the Government have lost control of the national health service, and they have a Prime Minister who claimed that he had done nothing wrong, but apologised so profusely that he very nearly wrecked the high-profile criminal trial of his mates at News International. This week, I received an invitation to the Commons versus Lords shooting competition. I hope that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jun 2014)

Damian Collins: ...’s conviction shows that the parliamentary inquiry into phone hacking, of which I was a member, was consistently misled by him and others over the extent of, and knowledge of, phone hacking at News International. Does the Prime Minister agree with me that our first concern should be to see redress for the victims of phone hacking and to uphold the democratic principle of a free press?

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Convoys Wharf, Deptford (22 Jan 2014)

Joan Ruddock: the War Office. The last elements of Sayes court manor house were demolished at some time around 1930. It was the Ministry of Defence that eventually sold the site now known as Convoys Wharf to News International in 1979. In 1952 a debate ensued over the demolition of the Tudor storehouse. It was not listed, despite the existence of a Tudor arch that was 10 feet high and 6 feet wide and...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill — Report (1st Day) (13 Jan 2014)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...certainly be subject to the same level of transparency, given how closely they work with their Ministers and the influence that they can and do have on policy. The case has already been well made but I make no apology for returning to the News International lobbyist Fred Michel, whose case proves quite how large the loopholes in the Bill are. He was summoned to the Leveson trial after DCMS...

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: News Services (7 Nov 2013)

Frank Doran: ..., the difference between the bids, which was substantial, amounted to a 500,000 saving over the life of the contract. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right, however; there is a real issue with News International newspapers not being available on the service, although the Library continues to negotiate with News International. He will also be aware that some members of the Library...

Press Regulation — Statement (8 Oct 2013)

Lord Sugar: My Lords, I would like to narrow my comments today to one particular organisation. All parties successfully applied pressure on News International, which resulted in the resignation of editors and the removal of the News of the W orld from circulation. I do not wish to dwell on the attack by the Daily Mail on the Leader of the Opposition in the other place or to compare it to the phone...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Clause 1 — Prohibition on consultant lobbying unless registered (9 Sep 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...discussions with a special adviser, and that would not be covered by the Bill. However, the lobbyist could meet the Under-Secretary of State and that meeting would be. Which meeting would be the real problem? One needs look only at the debacle of News International and Fred Michel to see the kind of scandal that can happen.

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill (3 Sep 2013)

Thomas Docherty: ...St Albans (Mrs Main) said, a lobbyist speaks to a senior official in the Department for Transport, that is okay, provided it is not the permanent secretary. If a lobbyist speaks to the special adviser, as Fred Michel clearly was in the News International scandal, that would okay. That is a failure of the Bill; it is one that I cannot support this evening.

Backbench Business — Private Members’ Bills: Cycling (2 Sep 2013)

Ian Austin: ...campaigner for cycling—for everything he does to promote cycling in Britain and for supporting our inquiry. Phil Goodwin and Adam Coffman pulled the report together and organised the inquiry. I thank News International for sponsoring the inquiry. Its involvement came about as a result of The Times’ brilliant campaign for cycling, which has been a breakthrough for cycling. I pay...

Written Answers — Treasury: Corporation Tax (24 Jun 2013)

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (20 Jun 2013)

David Davis: When News International was allowed to buy The Times newspaper, the condition was set that the editor could not be changed without the explicit approval of the non-executive directors. In the event that such a convention was broken, what would the Secretary of State’s powers of intervention be?

Crime and Courts Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (25 Mar 2013)

Lord Soley: that there is a world of difference between an individual who might say something factually incorrect and even insulting as an individual and a very large-scale international organisation such as News International doing the same thing. That is really where this problem has come from. People reacted to Leveson from the press side by saying that it was an attack on 300 years of press...

Canterbury City Council Bill: Select Committee Effectiveness, Resources and Powers (31 Jan 2013)

Angela Eagle: ...of companies such as Starbucks, Amazon and Google in minimising the taxes they pay in this country. The work of the Culture, Media and Sport Committee, in its relentless pursuit and questioning of News International over phone hacking, often when the issue was ignored by many others, has already been commented on. I would like to add my congratulations to its members on playing such a...

Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: Examination Reform (16 Jan 2013)

Nicholas Dakin: ...partnership. It is a business-led skills commission, but I am its chair, which is slightly bizarre. We have been taking evidence from industry. It was more than a year before the Secretary of State met the CBI, but he met News International many times during that period, which is a reflection of his priorities and whom he deems more important on this issue among business and the media. I...
