Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution: Health Hazards (1 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of air pollution on public health; and whether they will legislate to introduce World Health Organisation air quality standards for fine particulate matter to protect the health of vulnerable people in the UK.

Children’s Health: Vehicle Emissions - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, all of us will be very grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, for introducing this important debate. In my remarks today I will briefly look at three aspects: why the health risks to children from harmful vehicle emissions have to be taken seriously; what needs to be done to reduce those risks; and the extent to which certain measures to guarantee their effective delivery...

Safety of Medicines and Medical Devices - Motion to Take Note (28 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay of Llandaff; and, while listening to her guidance today, also to recall her enormous contribution to better health standards, made both inside and outside Parliament, not least in her capacity as a past president of the Royal Society of Medicine. Intervening between Committee and Report on the Healthcare (International...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Large Goods Vehicles: Safety (28 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to introduce direct vision standards for heavy goods vehicles in order to reduce road accidents; and if so, when.

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 34. Reflecting concerns about the wide scope of regulations, it seeks for them to be subject to affirmative rather than negative procedures. That, in turn, would enable Parliament to exercise more scrutiny. However, this aim should perhaps be viewed in three different contexts. The first context is reciprocal healthcare arrangements between the United...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I support Amendment 15, which proposes a new clause and has been moved by the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, on behalf of her noble friend Lady Thornton. As I indicated at Second Reading, in another place the Government may have slightly prevaricated on this issue by hiding behind the skirts of obvious current circumstances. While they say that the Bill should not prescribe a...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, in this group, I support Amendments 18 and 19, which were addressed by the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes of Cumnock. As with a number of earlier amendments, here there are two specifications, each of which serves a clear and useful purpose: giving assurance without applying any onerous impositions. In their forthcoming negotiations, the Government will clearly seek to protect current...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 9 in this group, which, as the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, has indicated, differs from Amendment 6 in only one respect: through its reference to the European court. It is intended as a probing amendment. It may have been implied that post Brexit we will not have recourse to the ECJ for arbitration or any other purpose. However, so far, that has not been...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, within this grouping I support Amendment 10, spoken to just now by the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton. As indicated, its objective is for current arrangements to be retained as they are. Certainly the Government would wish that in any case—and for the successful negotiation of a new healthcare arrangement to apply post Brexit. But there are good reasons why this particular...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, over past months we have learned all sorts of names as choices for European Union withdrawal. These include the Canada formula, the Norway arrangement, an adaptation of the latter called Norway-plus, then the expedient of a United Kingdom-European Union customs union, and, not least, the no-deal option. Recently, however, quite some publicity has focused instead upon a new...

Motor Vehicles (International Circulation) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (12 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, can my noble friend comment on a few points? First, the European Union general safety regulations are expected shortly, before the end of March. Can she reassure noble Lords that post Brexit these standards will be observed and matched by the United Kingdom? Secondly, regarding reciprocal arrangements affecting uninsured drivers after EU withdrawal—and not least if there should be...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (5 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I join others in congratulating my noble friend the Minister on her very useful introduction of this debate and on an excellent maiden speech. I welcome the Bill but I share concerns over a number of its defects. These include: inadequate parliamentary scrutiny; insufficient awareness of cost consequences; and, still left by it, the degree of uncertainty affecting United Kingdom...

Education: Treating Students Fairly (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I join others in welcoming the timely introduction of this debate, and I congratulate my noble friend Lord Forsyth of Drumlean. I will briefly address a few prescriptions of the Economic Affairs Committee report: the need for greater encouragement of post-school options other than full-time university courses; the case within employment for building up apprenticeships in a steady...

Plastic: Environmental Threat and Recycling - Motion to Take Note (19 Dec 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I begin by congratulating my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe on securing this important and timely debate. My remarks will touch briefly upon three themes and how they interconnect: first, the so-called circular economy; secondly, necessary adaptations to measures which so far have not achieved enough; and thirdly, within this process, how the United Kingdom can take a lead and give...

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note (19 Jul 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, I join others in thanking my noble friend Lord Norton of Louth. His introduction of this debate comes at just the right time, shortly after the Prime Minister’s recent specific guidelines for EU withdrawal. For these, in turn, can focus us all the more sharply upon the best means and approach for sustaining and augmenting the value to the United Kingdom of higher education as an...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, we discussed two key aspects of protecting children’ rights post Brexit in Committee. The first is the need to guarantee that our present level of cross-border co-operation should not diminish. Here, my noble friend gave me an assurance, for which I am grateful, that the United Kingdom’s current security arrangements in Europe will continue; and, in particular, through the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (5 Mar 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, in connection with EU withdrawal, and as already intimated, there are perhaps two key aspects concerning our protection of children. First, that the current level of cross-border co-operation should not diminish. Secondly—which this group of amendments highlights—that UK domestic law and its deployment should continue to be guided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (26 Feb 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, as has been said, that our current advantages from international student mobility might now be under attack is clearly of great concern. In 2014-15, it was estimated that international students contributed around £25.8 billion in gross output to the United Kingdom economy. There are also the considerable social and cultural benefits to which they contribute, not least the United...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued) (15 Jan 2018)

the Earl of Dundee: My Lords, while supporting this amendment, I welcome and recognise the Minister’s continuing resolve to issue guidance—thus the text to that effect, as is already within the Bill. Yet there is no certainty about it, as subsection (2) specifies only what such guidance “may” rather than “must” include. Also to be welcomed is the recent guidance given by the Office of Financial...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Non-governmental Organisations: Licensing (14 Dec 2017)

the Earl of Dundee: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to promote international harmonisation of licensing of NGOs through a system of mutual recognition and notification.
