Public Procurement and the Civil Society Strategy - Motion to Take Note (23 May 2019)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests, and I congratulate my noble friend on securing this important debate. Public procurement is rarely a subject that sets the pulse racing but it is important, accounting for, as we have heard, just about a third of public spending, and the way in which it is done and the success of how it is done make a huge difference to what...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Public Sector: Mutual Societies (19 Feb 2019)

Lord Maude of Horsham: To ask Her Majesty's Government what public service mutuals have been created since May 2010; and what is the current status of each one.

Leaving the European Union - Statement (21 Jan 2019)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that those who seek to exclude a no-deal result without also excluding a second referendum are simply illustrating that what they want is not to exclude a no-deal Brexit but not to have Brexit at all? Although I regret that the Prime Minister’s deal was rejected by the other place, particularly by such a catastrophic margin, can she throw any light on...

Migrant Crossings - Statement (7 Jan 2019)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, the whole House will applaud the measured, calm and professional way in which my noble friend has moved seamlessly from conducting a Bill through its Second Reading to dealing with this issue. Of course, everyone will agree that it is undesirable for individuals to seek to cross the channel in this way and that we should all be concerned about it. However, she makes the point, and...

Future Immigration - Statement (19 Dec 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, does my noble friend accept that very many people who voted for Britain to leave the European Union were not driven or heavily motivated by concerns about immigration? This was not a consideration for very many of them and if we end up with a plan B for Brexit—that we remain in the European Economic Area with the attenuated form of freedom of movement of people that that...

Brexit: Negotiations and No-deal Contingency Planning - Statement (4 Sep 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, is it not now clear that, despite the best efforts of my noble friend and his Secretary of State, whom I admire greatly, the Chequers proposal could be agreed only at the expense of further, very substantial concessions extracted under duress, which would lock the UK indefinitely into a highly disadvantageous one-sided arrangement? Is it not now clear that there is a growing and...

Exiting the EU - Statement (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords—

Exiting the EU - Statement (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, will my noble friend be minded respectfully to suggest that this plan will mean that for trade in goods, for some years at any rate, this will mean that Britain will remain effectively in the single market—of course, the single market in services, especially financial services, is very far from complete—but that these arrangements will not be set in perpetuity? This is a...

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Butler, and I agree with so much of what he said. I find, slightly to my surprise, that I am younger than the average age in your Lordships’ House, yet I suspect that I have been coming in and out of this building for longer than most of your Lordships. I came in for the first time for my christening in the crypt chapel longer ago...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Kakkar, who has a deep knowledge of life sciences and the medical world and gave a powerful exposition of the opportunities for Britain to be a world leader in this sphere. I am conscious that I am speaking before my noble friend Lord Heseltine, described by the noble Lord,...

European Council - Statement (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that it is unhelpful for negotiators on the EU side to say, as I understand Michel Barnier is reported to have said, that no bespoke agreement can be reached with the UK? Every single trade agreement that the EU has reached with third countries has been a bespoke agreement, and it is manifestly absurd to argue that ours cannot be one. This will be about...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Pinnock, and those other distinguished Members of your Lordships’ House who have spoken. I warmly commend my noble friend the Minister on the lapidary way he opened the debate, making a persuasive case, which sometimes gets lost, that most of the fundamentals of the...

Student Loans Company - Question (21 Nov 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, when an experienced and robust operational leader is brought in to turn round what had been known to be a failing organisation, is told consistently that he is doing an excellent job and is then summarily dismissed, principally on the basis of allegations put forward by staff who had themselves been given poor performance ratings, what does my noble friend think is the prospect of...

Update on EU Exit Negotiations - Statement (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, surely no one can doubt that it is very much in the interests of both sides for there to be a sensible, pragmatic agreement at the end of all this, if only because the absence of an agreement means an immediate €10 billion gap in the EU’s budget. Will my noble friend confirm that Article 50 is absolutely clear that these must be negotiations, “setting out the arrangements...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests. I recognise that at this stage in the debate one struggles to find anything original to say, so I will content myself with a few short points. On the Bill, it never occurred to me that after the vote happened last year there could be any question but that Parliament should have a voice before the triggering of Article 50. I...

NHS: Debt - Question (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, will my noble friend reflect on the contribution that could be made to addressing the problem of overspending by NHS trusts, which has contributed to the growing deficit to which the Question refers, by reviving the programme of health service mutuals? Under the coalition Government, some tens of thousands of health service workers put themselves into not-for-profit social...

Principle of Comparative Advantage: Bicentenary - Question (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that there was a strand in the Brexit referendum campaign that was hostile to the open movement of goods, services, talent and investment, and that that strand was deeply unattractive? Does she agree that it has never been more important for this country and this Government to be a really inspiring voice in support of free trade?

National Citizen Service Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I am glad to have the chance to speak in this important debate. I was involved early on in the life of NCS. When David Cameron appointed me Minister of the Cabinet Office in 2010, straight after the general election, he said: “Oh, and by the way, you’ll have responsibility for implementing National Citizen Service”. Knowing as I did that this was very much his personal vision,...

Teachers: Academies and Free Schools - Question for Short Debate (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Storey, on securing this important debate. I also congratulate my noble friend Lady Finn on a most accomplished and assured maiden speech. My noble friend was my special adviser in government for some five or six years. Too often, special advisers are dismissed as bag carriers who have little experience of the world...

Health: HIV - Question for Short Debate (5 Sep 2016)

Lord Maude of Horsham: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend on securing this debate on an incredibly important subject. It is particularly important for me, personally, because just over 23 years ago my parents, my two sisters and I lost my older brother to AIDS. He had contracted HIV some seven years previously, at a time when the whole treatment of HIV and AIDS was at an early...
