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

Paul Farrelly: ...one 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 June 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

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 June 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 June 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

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 January 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Joan Ruddock: ...by 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 January 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 November 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 October 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 September 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 September 2013) See 1 other result from this debate

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 September 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 June 2013)

Austin Mitchell: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the amount of corporation tax (a) News International, (b) Google, (c) Amazon, (d) Starbucks, (e) Microsoft and (f) Apple would pay if they paid tax on all their earnings in the UK.

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

Lord Soley: ...is 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 January 2013) See 1 other result from this debate

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 January 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...

Leveson Inquiry — Motion to Take Note (11 January 2013) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...complex simple might be a theme for today and our discussions in general as we try to tackle this problem. The noble Baroness, Lady O'Neill, asked what would happen if there were a fire sale down at News International. I hesitate to suggest that such a thing might happen, but of course it would be dealt with as any other change of ownership is dealt with within the press. The authorities...

Statute Law (Repeals) Bill [Lords]: Backbench Business — Corporate Tax Avoidance (7 January 2013)

Ian Swales: ...I agree with her that we need more resource in the whole area of enforcement. I was talking about my experience and how we would never have set up legal entities in countries just to avoid tax. Now, News International has more than 150 companies in tax havens. Transfer pricing, management fees, royalties, patent, copyright and interest payments are all ways to move money. The moving of...

Leveson Inquiry (3 December 2012) See 8 other results from this debate

John McDonnell: ...established in the industry. Unfortunately, it was a culture of bullying and intimidation in news rooms. It undermined the implementation of the code of practice—and yes, it is not unrelated to the introduction of Rupert Murdoch’s News International on to the journalism scene in this country. From then on, it was NUJ policy to lobby this House to introduce protection for its...
