Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 18 (5 Oct 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Cormack. I certainly support this amendment, moved so ably by the noble Lord, Lord Oates, and its proposed new clause requiring the Secretary of State to issue physical evidence of migration status. To start with, as has been said, we might well be disposed to approve of a system which is entirely digital, dispenses with cards or...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 15 (5 Oct 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I declare an interest as chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s Sub-Committee on Refugee and Migrant Children and Young People. In Committee, my noble friend Minister explained how, early in the pandemic crisis, following talks between her colleague Minister Philp and Greece, three flights of children arrived in the United Kingdom from the Greek islands....

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 14 (30 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, has just explained, the amendment would ensure that children in care were entitled to remain in the United Kingdom. When the same amendment was debated in Committee, several of your Lordships emphasised that post Brexit it is both logical and necessary for children who are already in care, along with those entitled to care, to be able to stay in the...

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 98 (to Amendment 97) (22 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: I agree with my noble friend Lord Trenchard on the question of criteria to ensure that UK standards comply with WTO rules. However, in this grouping my main consideration is the composition of the Trade and Agriculture Commission itself. So far, the suggested membership comprises larger industry representation and experts covering quite a narrow group of issues. It does not take in those for...

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 89ZA (22 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, within this grouping, I support my noble friend Lord Trenchard’s helpful amendments. First, on United Kingdom and EU standards, he corrects a misapprehension or, maybe, he forestalls it before it has time within the Bill to solidify as a regular misunderstanding. For, as he points out, there is no difference between domestic standards and European Union ones. They are identical....

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 79 (22 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I am very grateful to noble Lords for their comments and support, as I am to my noble friend Lady Bloomfield for her positive evaluation of this amendment. As already indicated, the focus here is not upon the merits of agricultural smallholdings, which are already recognised by the Government and by your Lordships. The issue instead is whether the Government should give planning...

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 79 (22 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, this proposed new clause would enable the Government to give guidance to local authorities. Many new entrepreneurs would like to set up agricultural smallholdings and to start viable businesses connected with high-quality jobs to do with farming and local food production, but are still prevented by restrictive planning regulations. The aim instead should clearly be to encourage...

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 75 (22 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support these amendments on controlling the application of pesticides. The amendments in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, and others helpfully consider the consequences of different wind conditions, calling for the analysis and monitoring of effects, as well as for immediate limitations on pesticides use in wind conditions that threaten dwellings, water sources and...

Agriculture Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 58 (17 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendment 58 on the national food strategy in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, connecting as it does to the useful Amendment 53 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Boycott, which we have just debated and which recommends that government reports on food security should include assessments of household food insecurity. As has been said, healthy food and a healthy...

Agriculture Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 49 (17 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendment 53 tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Boycott, which recommends that government reports on food security should take into account measures of household food insecurity. As the noble Baroness has just pointed out, it would be anomalous if in isolation, on its own, some assessment of national food security were to have a good reading while at the same time, United...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 63 (16 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support the amendments of the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, on protecting rights to British citizenship. We have already debated her first one, Amendment 68. This urges that applicants should not be disadvantaged just because registration costs might become too much for them to afford. We are now considering her Amendment 67, which advises that our system should set out to be...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 62 (16 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendment 62—spoken to in a very moving way by the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee—which seeks to expand family reunion rules. I also support Amendment 79, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett, which ensures that family reunification should not be restricted by any lack of income or assets affecting relevant parties. Amendment 64, in my name, allows visas to be...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 56 (16 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendment 56 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Dubs. As he just explained, the proposed new clause would ensure that the children of EEA citizens and Swiss nationals who are already in care, along with those entitled to care, are able to stay in the United Kingdom under the EU settlement scheme. Where otherwise would these children go? Therefore, in guaranteeing their...

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 28 (15 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: In this grouping, I support various amendments on monitoring and analysis. First, Amendment 18, from the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Rolfe, advises that impact assessments be published and that public responses to them be taken into account before financial schemes are themselves launched. Secondly, and correspondingly, my noble friend Lady McIntosh of Pickering’s Amendment 30 would have...

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 6 (15 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support a number of themes and their corresponding amendments in this group. They suggest that more should be done in the Bill to promote them. The first is consistency between encouragement of production and of ancillary activities. However, Clause 1(2) almost implies a division between them, because the Bill implies that, although the Secretary of State might support both,...

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (15 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support the amendments of the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, which encourage public access and improved accessibility. Equally, I am in favour of Amendment 5 in the name of my noble friend Lord Caithness. Public access should not be forced on farmers just because they have been given financial help. That would be inconsistent with the purposes of the Bill. What should happen instead,...

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (15 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: No, I have finished my remarks.

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (15 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: I confirm that I have finished my remarks already.

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 34 (9 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, within this grouping, I support amendments that protect reciprocal rights of United Kingdom citizens and those of EEA countries and Switzerland. Following current changes regarding immigration, these include the need for regular impact assessments on skills shortages, as mentioned by the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, in Amendment 59; the emphasis of the noble Earl, Lord Clancarty, in...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 30 (9 Sep 2020)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendments 30 and 68, as proposed by the noble Baroness, Lady Lister of Burtersett. Clearly, as prevented by Amendment 30, EEA and Swiss nationals should not be denied their British citizenship just because registration costs might have become too much for them to afford. Nor, of course, as protected against in Amendment 68, ought children looked after by a local...
