Recent appearances

  • Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Exercise of functions by the age-verification regulator 20 Oct 2016

    Part of my reason for withdrawing my amendment was that I was encouraged by the word “principally” on line 35 of this page. It is not a restriction; the regulator certainly has the power under the clause to go after it. My issue is that there is a worry, although not with this regulator, that success will be defined by the number of websites or the number of enforcement notices...
  • Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Enforcement of sections 15 and 19 20 Oct 2016

    I thank the Minister for that response. I would have liked to hear him say a little bit more about how the payment service providers are involved in the game and whether we are relying on them to do the right thing because they are large corporate companies, or whether, as new clause 6 proposed, there was an opportunity to strengthen the wording of the Bill.
  • Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Enforcement of sections 15 and 19 20 Oct 2016

    That is a very reassuring reply and I thank the Minister for it. We have had a very good debate. I know that his officials will be listening and thinking hard about what has been said, and I do not think it would serve the Committee any purpose to press my amendments or my new clause to a vote. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
