Hong Kong: Human Rights - Question for Short Debate (4 Jun 2020)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, my anxiety about human rights in Hong Kong is partly a personal matter, as two of my grandchildren were born there. Fortunately, my son’s family is now in this country, but there is grave concern for their friends and former neighbours and colleagues. The Prime Minister has made a general offer of a route to UK citizenship for Hong Kongers who wish to leave. Can the Minister...

Covid-19: International Response - Motion to Consider (18 May 2020)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I welcome this opportunity to underline how the UK, even while confronting our own epidemic, must not abandon the world’s most vulnerable people. There is now evidence that the virus will set back programmes and progress in the poorest countries by at least three decades. Statistics from these countries are fragmented, but understanding what we do now about social distancing it is...

BBC and Public Service Broadcasting - Motion to Take Note (5 Mar 2020)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Bragg, who has enormous authority in this area. I hope and expect that this will be the first of many debates when we discuss again the new threats to public broadcasting, which, like my noble friend Lord Bragg and other noble Lords, I regard as one of the central pillars of Britain’s unique cultural life. In my brief contribution, I...

Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission - Statement (13 May 2019)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I echo noble Lords who have said what a fitting and appropriate tribute it is to Tessa that, on this anniversary of her death, we have heard this encouraging update from the Minister. It was a great sadness to me that I missed her final speech in your Lordships’ House because I was abroad, but having worked with Tessa for more than 20 years in many different roles, I found it...

Zimbabwe - Private Notice Question (21 Jan 2019)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Hayward, I had the privilege of being a member of the delegation on behalf of the Commonwealth that was one of the observers at the elections in Zimbabwe in the summer. In our report, we acknowledged many of the concerns that have been raised around the House this afternoon, and in particular the one about the potential for Zimbabwe to be readmitted to the...

The Politics of Polling (Political Polling and Digital Media Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2018)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, it was a privilege to be a member of such an interesting and thought-provoking committee. I give my thanks to the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey, not just for his excellent chairmanship but for his comprehensive and easy-to-follow description of our report’s findings. I offer my personal warm thanks to the clerk, Sarah Jones, and her team. They gave me enormous support in the few weeks...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I support Amendment 70. If I am in order, I shall speak also to Amendment 71 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey. I declare an interest as serving as a trustee of the Hansard Society under the able chairmanship of the noble Lord. Way back in what now seems like pre-Neolithic times at the time of the Queen’s Speech, when we raised some general issues about the potential...

Leveson Inquiry Update - Statement (1 Mar 2018)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, is it not the case that, as I am sure everyone around the House has demonstrated this afternoon, there is a great change in the media? The Minister has said several times that since 2011 things have changed in a great many ways. But are he and the Government really confident that the measures he has outlined this afternoon will be sufficient to deal with the questions which were...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (13 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, before the Minister replies to my noble friend Lord Whitty, I want to emphasise the importance of his arguments and ask him to reflect again on what he said about the point made by the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, on the Electoral Commission’s involvement. Although, as the Minister said, he wrote in general terms to the commission—or it was asked to give evidence to the...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (6 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, the Minister was kind enough to respond to the point I sought to make about the extraterritorial nature of all this, which of course goes way beyond individual sites to corporate ownership, the issue that I am most concerned about. I am glad that the Government are having conversations with, or at least dealing with, what he describes as the most responsible players in this market....

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (6 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I support the aim of these amendments, as do other noble Lords who have spoken. They were extraordinarily well introduced, given the scope of what they are intended to achieve. As I said at Second Reading, I do not have the same authority and technical background in the industry as many noble Lords who have taken part, particularly the noble Baroness, Lady Harding. However, I have...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, and to recognise her expertise in discussing the issues around children’s protection. I share many of her ideas. I welcome the Bill, and echo other noble Lords in recognising that it has enormous significance and is very timely. I am grateful for the clear explanation of the EU Committee’s report, which showed the...

Update on Proposed Fox-Sky Merger Process - Statement (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: There is a very important sentence in the Statement, which says: “I consider it important that entities which adopt controversial or partisan approaches to news and current affairs in other jurisdictions should, at the same time, have a genuine commitment to broadcasting standards here”. While recognising that this is a “minded to” Statement, and following the questions of my noble...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: My Lords, I want to focus on the role of Parliament, and specifically the role of this House, in delivering the Brexit legislation. This may seem slightly arcane in the context of some of the strategic issues that we have heard about in the debate, but those who campaigned to take us out of the European Union fervently asserted that this would restore the sovereignty of the Westminster...

Assisted Dying - Question for Short Debate (6 Mar 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of recent legislation on assisted dying in North America; and whether those laws provide an appropriate basis for legislation in England and Wales.
