Feed-in Tariffs (Amendment) (No. 3) Order 2015 — Motion to Annul (2 Feb 2016)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, this is an important debate, and it is with regret that I felt that I must table this fatal Motion, as I am aware of the significance of this action, but regard the matter as so serious as to merit such a Motion. The order makes policy changes which will have far-reaching and detrimental effects—effects which will not only put our renewables industries in serious jeopardy but...

Neglected Tropical Diseases — Question for Short Debate (1 Feb 2016)

Lord Patel: My Lords, I am going to concentrate mainly on strategies to develop treatment for neglected tropical diseases. I am a doctor by background, as everyone knows. I was born in Tanzania and I visit there often in relation to charity. Last year, I was bitten extensively by the flies that carry sleeping sickness and every time I doze off I wonder if I caught it, so I am concerned about finding...

Adult Education and Lifelong Learning — Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Sharp on securing this important debate. She has long been a champion of adult education and has great expertise in the subject, as we heard in her impressive opening speech. We have seen how widespread is the interest that it has generated, with the many excellent contributions from around the House. I am also delighted to join in the tributes to...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Bates: Noble Lords will recall that at Report in July, I moved various technical amendments to the Bill to ensure that it properly reflects Scots law and Scottish judicial and policing practice. The Commons amendments in this group are in a similar vein. The group also repeals the Intoxicating Substances (Supply) Act 1985, which the Bill renders redundant. I can provide further detail if required,...

The North Sea under Pressure (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2015)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, I commend the EU Committee on its report and this debate, which cover many aspects of the North Sea environment. I begin by endorsing the remarks of the noble Baroness, Lady Scott, about data exchange. I had many experiences of this in the Met Office, dealing with meteorological data. The situation was very poor 20 years ago, but it has improved progressively. I know that the...

[Mr Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] — Sugary Drinks Tax (30 Nov 2015)

Helen Jones: The public health responsibility deal has had a fair trial over the past five years. The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee said of it that “the current Public Health Responsibility Deal pledge on obesity is not a proportionate response to the scale of the problem.” The reason for that, as the British Medical Association has pointed out, is that the deal does not set...

Electricity System Resilience (S&T Committee Report) — Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2015)

the Earl of Selborne: My Lords, the electricity system of this country is embarking on a period of profound change over the coming decades. This change will be driven by technological development such as the increasing penetration of automation and intelligent systems, the deployment of advanced fast-acting control systems, dispersed generation and the transition to a smart energy system. This will increase...

Civilian Use of Drones (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2015)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, as many noble Lords have indicated, there are two ways in which to look at new technologies such as drones. They can be a tool for invasion of privacy, a tool for terrorists and criminals, and for war, and must be kept under strict control. Or they can be welcomed as a useful new technology—a technology making us more productive and more efficient, and making life easier and...

European Union (Finance) Bill: Second Reading (and Remaining Stages) (8 Jul 2015)

Lord Davies of Oldham: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his introduction to the Bill, which has attracted widespread attention among noble Lords, as we see from the speakers’ list today. However, that does not detract from the significance of the measure or from our party’s support for the Bill, which I will indicate in a moment. Following yesterday’s debate on financial regulation in Europe, it...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day)(Continued) (29 Jun 2015)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I warmly welcome my noble friend’s amendment. I read with interest the debate in Committee last Wednesday about this very important issue, which goes right to the heart of the relationship between the combined authority and the National Health Service, and the integrity of the NHS as a national service providing uniformity of services across the nation. Of course, our debate...

Economy: Creative Industries — Motion to Take Note (18 Jun 2015)

Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury: My Lords, those are two very hard acts to follow, but I will try. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Wheatcroft, for bringing this debate. Back in 2007, I brought a similar debate. In those days, “creative industries” was a relatively unused term that was rather resented by the cultural community, but I think it was wrong. The fact is that the creative sector, alongside being...

NHS: Innovation — Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2015)

Baroness Walmsley: My Lords, I, too, welcome the Minister to his first debate. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Wills, for using this debate to raise such an important issue. I, too, want to ask about fast-tracks although most of my remarks will be of a somewhat more general nature than those of the noble Lord. The overriding purpose of innovation must be the better care and treatment of patients. Financial...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (6th Day) (4 Jun 2015)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, as a fellow Mancunian, I welcome the Minister to the House and congratulate him on his maiden speech. Yes, the election and its surprises are behind us, but our economic problems remain. My noble friend Lord Mendelsohn reminded us of them. We all know the answer, which many noble Lords have given: productivity. Yes, raising productivity is the main determinant of our standard of...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 May 2015)

Lord Kakkar: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on the very thoughtful way in which he introduced this debate following the gracious Speech. I intend to focus principally on the impact of our relationship with the European Union on the delivery of healthcare in our country. In so doing, I declare an interest as professor of surgery at University College London and a member of the General Medical...

Baroness Williams of Trafford: I thank all noble Lords who have participated in this debate today and who have supported the inquiry, particularly the noble Lord, Lord Krebs and the noble Earl, Lord Kinnoull, who made his maiden speech today outlining some of his experiences, which were extremely interesting. I also noted, as did the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, that we are surrounded by three earls and a viscount today, so...
