Lord McKenzie of Luton: My Lords, RIDDOR should play an important role in collecting data on work-related injury and death as well as dangerous occurrences. It is not an optional arrangement.

EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Jan 2021)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: My Lords, it is hard to celebrate legislation which will lead to our country becoming poorer.
