Gambling Advertising - Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Foster, on securing this debate. It seems that it has been shifted around nearly as frequently as the publication date for the Government’s own White Paper on gambling regulation. Yesterday, in a response to an Oral Question from my noble friend Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe, the Minister seemed keen to hide behind the ongoing...

Creative Professionals: EU Tours - Question (21 Feb 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, perhaps this is an apposite moment for the House to acknowledge the contribution and sad death of Jamal Edwards, who has done so much to promote a new wave of musicians and artists to a global audience. Awarded an MBE at 24, he was an inspiration to a new generation. With that in mind, perhaps the Minister can tell us what support Her Majesty’s Government are giving to young new...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 (9 Feb 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I express the gratitude of the Labour Benches to the Government for the progress made on the Bill and the valuable update that the Minister has given us this afternoon. I am particularly pleased that the Government have brought back an amendment covering the dormant assets scheme, although I rather agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, that it is a shame that it was watered...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 (9 Feb 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I am grateful to my noble friend for his support on that point. We on our Benches look forward to the consultation in due course and hope that the department will continue to engage with proponents of community wealth funds. Such funds could play an interesting and, we think, valuable role in levelling up and empowering local communities seeking their own solutions to local problems, a...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 (9 Feb 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I remind the noble Lord that he did not answer my last question regarding reviewing the future of other dormant assets. If he is unable to do so at this point, I am happy to receive correspondence on the topic.

Racism in English Cricket - Question (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, we have heard this afternoon a litany of responses which focus on racism, and rightly so. For our part, it is very frustrating to see the responses of senior people in cricket, and others across the sport, who are determined to bury their heads in the sand on this issue. The announcement that Clare Connor will lead a review into dressing room culture in the men’s and women’s...

UEFA Euro 2020 Final - Question (26 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Casey, described the crowd events at Wembley’s Euro final as a “near miss” for fatalities and life-changing injuries and said that we need a national conversation about kicking racism and hooliganism out of football. Can the Minister tell us what plans the Government have for taking forward her six recommendations in full to improve safety, security...

BBC Funding - Statement (25 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, in truth, we know that this Statement was about distraction—a vindictive distraction at that—away from the Prime Minister’s behaviour during lockdown, the Government’s unlawful VIP lane for Covid contracts and their continued refusal to deal with our country’s cost of living crisis. The Secretary of State pleads that she is interested in the cost of living crisis; if she...

Post Office: Horizon Compensation - Private Notice Question (24 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I would like to return to the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Arbuthnot. It seems quite wrong that a company that knew what it was doing, knew that the kit was faulty, and knew that mistakes were being made has not been involved in this case. They should be making payments to the Government so that the Government can fully compensate all those who have being wrongfully...

Written Answers — Home Office: Euro 2020: Arrests (19 Jan 2022)

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 96A (10 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, it would be remiss of me not to thank the Government for bringing forward these amendments. They very much fulfil the objectives that I set out in moving my amendments in Committee. Imagine my slight surprise when I received an email shortly before Christmas from one of the officials telling me about this, though it had been suggested to me, and that the announcement was going to be...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 96A (10 Jan 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for his comments and his agreement to take that away. For our part, we would very much welcome a discussion on that with him and his officials, if that is at all possible. We are some way off from the Third Reading, and, clearly, we would be in a position to bring forward an amendment if that would help. It would be for the good if we could have some...
