Recent appearances

  • Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) 8 Feb 2017

    Before the noble Lord sits down, may I just ask him: is it not dangerous to make perfection the enemy of better? In other words, the amendment may not be perfect, but it is moving in the right direction, and to say, “Do nothing”, because it is not perfect is surely very unwise, given all the other stuff that he has said.
  • Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) 8 Feb 2017

    My Lords, I support the amendment. There is a huge amount of power in the hands of search engines regarding the way they influence how people think.

  • Digital Economy Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) 2 Feb 2017

    My Lords, it has been suggested to me that this group of amendments could also be used in the code of practice and the safety responsibilities could also be drawn up to include non-age-verified pornography.
