Identity Cards Act 2006 (Information and Code of Practice on Penalties) Order 2009 — Motion to Approve (13 Jul 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I apologise to the Minister, but would he confirm that in the first instance the fees will be exempt simply for airside workers at Manchester and London City airports, rather than across the piece?

Identity Cards Act 2006 (Information and Code of Practice on Penalties) Order 2009 — Motion to Approve (13 Jul 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I have it in mind that the latest cost summary projected over the 10-year period from when it was issued is that 95 million ID cards would be issued. That projection is whatever that projection is, but it is something like half as much again of the population of the UK. Therefore, what faith can we have in costs if they are based on a scenario where one and a half times the...

Identity Cards Act 2006 (Information and Code of Practice on Penalties) Order 2009 — Motion to Approve (13 Jul 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I declare an interest as an unpaid adviser to the Enterprise Privacy Group, Privacy International and 80/20 Thinking. I have little to add to what has already been said but I invite the Minister to comment on three points. First, can he confirm that the ITAO standard requires no more than a digitised impression of a biometric fingerprint—that is to say, that the whole of the ID...

Data: Personal Information — Debate (2 Apr 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, this has been an excellent debate and I thank all noble Lords who participated. I genuinely enjoyed all the contributions, including that of the Minister, although I am perhaps a little disappointed that, in relation to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation report, he may have resorted to shooting the messenger because of dissatisfaction with the message. As the debate has progressed, two...

Data: Personal Information — Debate (2 Apr 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, in recent times it has become customary at this point in our proceedings to offer up some sort of anecdote or witticism as a means of buying time before launching forth into the body of one's text. My limited oratorical steers skills do not stretch that far, so I merely confine myself to the hope that it is neither the subject matter of today's debate nor the fact that I have risen...

Data Retention (EC Directive) Regulations 2009 — Motion to Approve (24 Mar 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, will the Minister clarify one point? He just said that one of the purposes of the directive is to enable the Government to codify retained data. I am sorry, but if you want to codify retained data, you must access it. Will he explain precisely what he means by "codifying" the retained data?

Data Retention (EC Directive) Regulations 2009 — Motion to Approve (24 Mar 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I was loath to intervene on the Minister during his winding-up remarks because he has had quite enough interventions. However, can he answer one straightforward question that I actually put to him in my speech: do these regulations either implicitly or explicitly authorise the use of DPI technology to retain communications data? It is a very straightforward question.

Data Retention (EC Directive) Regulations 2009 — Motion to Approve (24 Mar 2009)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I rise to support my noble friend's amendment. In so doing, I declare my various interests in this field, as an unpaid adviser to the Enterprise Privacy Group, Privacy International and 80/20 Thinking. I do not have all that much to add to my noble friend's excellent and devastating critique, but I should like to reinforce one or two of the issues to which she referred and probe the...

Parliament: Police Access — Question (11 Dec 2008)

the Earl of Northesk: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. Is it not the case that the suspension and/or closure of an e-mail account constitutes an interception of communications under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act? On the particular case of Mr Green, can the noble Lord explain how his account was suspended other than by means of access through the main parliamentary server?
