Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 67 (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, for the avoidance of doubt, could the Minister clarify whether the proposed restrictions apply not only to print and broadcast media but to digital media?

Elections: Voter ID - Question (13 Jun 2023)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Do the Government have any intention of specifying what sort of ID is acceptable? I decided to test this out in the recent local elections. I took my House of Lords pass; it has a photograph, as we all know, but it was not acceptable. Luckily, in my pocket I also had a passport, so I was able to vote. This should not be left unclear.

European University Institute (EU Exit) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve (15 Nov 2022)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, this affects a very small number of people, yet it seems manifestly unfair as between those people. I do not understand why it was necessary to negotiate a cessation of terms and conditions that bore, in very differentiated ways, on different current members of staff of the EUI. I remind noble Lords that the “EU” in EUI does not stand for “European Union” but for the first...

Education: Philosophy - Question ( 1 Nov 2022)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I think I have an interest to declare as the only surviving professional philosopher in the House. When I joined your Lordships’ House there were four of us, but the others are no longer with us. So much for the interest. My question is: does the Minister think that what we might call the A-levelisation of philosophy teaching in schools has, on balance, been beneficial, or not?

Freedom of Expression (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (27 Oct 2022)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, this is a rich, detailed and informative report, yet one underlying issue has perhaps gone to the margins: the focus on freedom of expression. Nowadays, we often use the term “freedom of expression” as though it were a synonym for freedom of speech. I note that communication involves two parties—not merely those who express themselves, the originators, but the recipients. This...

Referendums - Question (12 Feb 2020)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Does the Minister accept that there has been some change since 2016? Although it is true that we have limited information about the success of the campaigning from without the UK on that occasion, and limited information about what happened in the election of President Trump, there is today much more evidence about disinformation campaigning and there are many reports, including by the Oxford...

Nursing and Midwifery - Question (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the Royal Statistical Society is celebrating the election of its first woman fellow, Florence Nightingale, and that nurses play a very considerable part in the collection and processing of data that matter for public health, and all our health?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, it is not easy to debate or even to discern the cumulative implications of the measures mentioned in the gracious Speech. Many serious measures that urgently require new legislation received no mention, while many of those that are mentioned are dealt with by gesturing towards indeterminate action. For example, and this has been widely discussed, nothing is said about housing, which...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Oct 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, you see the dangers.

Elections and Referenda: Protection Against Corruption - Question ( 7 Oct 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what progress they have made with ensuring adequate protection of (1) elections, and (2) referenda against corruption by (a) disinformation campaigns, and (b) digital technologies.

Elections and Referenda: Protection Against Corruption - Question ( 7 Oct 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, time is moving on. During May, the Government replied to a number of questions from various Benches about preventing online corruption of future elections and referenda. The noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, always gave careful and considered answers and assured the House that the Government were already taking steps to ensure that there was no such corruption. He talked about...

Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, my noble and learned friend’s amendment goes a long way to protect the public from some of the ambiguities of these questions. If the question is optional and one does not need to answer it, one does not have to resolve the ambiguities, which are considerable on both halves. That is to say, it is not clear to me that every member of the public will understand what is covered by...

Electoral Commission: Referendums and Elections Spending - Question (23 May 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, this is the fourth Question that the Minister has answered in this general area during the past week. Although his Answers are detailed and useful, they do not seem to reflect the urgency of the issues. We cannot sit here saying, “Oh, there are consultations and consideration of these problems going on”, because we may face a referendum or election before many of us would wish....

EU Referendum: Lessons Learned - Question (20 May 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Will the Minister recognise that we may have a referendum or an election before many would wish either to happen? Is it not prudent, therefore, to take some steps to regulate political advertising, both online and digitally, to try to get an imprint on every political advertisement and to bring political advertising back under the requirement to say who paid for it?

Veterans: Investigations - Statement (16 May 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, a year ago I visited the Staatsanwaltschaft in Stuttgart—

Elections: Online Interference - Question ( 1 May 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what measures they intend to take to prevent or mitigate online interference with any future elections or referenda.

Elections: Online Interference - Question ( 1 May 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I wish I could share the noble Lord’s optimism. The ways that exist for interfering in elections are not confined to direct interference at the polls. We are talking about interference in campaigning, and there is ample evidence of that. There is no evidence of how successful interference has been in particular cases; the nature of the problem means that such evidence cannot...

Corporate Governance - Question (29 Apr 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Does the Minister consider standards of trust an adequate metric for the trustworthiness of companies?

Online Harms - Statement ( 8 Apr 2019)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I too welcome this White Paper. We have heard it heralded from the Front Bench week after week, and it is great to see it arrive. However, it deals with only part of the problem. That is, it is a paper about the private harms that may be done—for example, by cyberbullying, fraud or extremist material. All of those matter, but there is another set of harms: harms to public goods,...
