Recent appearances

  • Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve 28 Nov 2018

    My Lords, the Minister keeps talking about “the UK”, but there are four health services within the United Kingdom. Can she tell the House whether this order covers all those health services, or just England?
  • Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation - Statement 21 Nov 2018

    My Lords, is it not correct that the centre’s name is the wrong way round? It ought to be the advisory committee on digital innovation and ethics, because the innovation will drive the ethics rather than the other way round.
  • Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) 9 May 2018

    The Minister keeps talking about “vehicles” and not “cars”. Vehicles are already being used in agriculture. They do have to go on roads, however; for example, to go from one field to another. Is that part of the definition?
