UK Community Renewal Fund - Question (8 Dec 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the noble Lord has made a good case for the community renewal fund, but is it not the case that the allocations were delayed from July to October? Will that mean that the application and monitoring of those funds will take a longer period? If not, the funds will be wasted. Levelling up is far too important to be bungled by this Government.

Small Business Commissioner: Late Payments - Question (7 Dec 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I appreciate the Minister’s candour in this but remind him that, earlier in the year, he said: “Late payments damage the cashflow of small businesses, which can hold back investment or job creation and, in the worst cases, lead to job losses and business closures. Action to stop the damaging practice of late payments remains a key priority for Government.” But is it, given...

Football: Casey Review - Private Notice Question (6 Dec 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I join others in thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Casey of Blackstock, for her excellent report. We would expect nothing else from her but a high standard of product. The Euro 2020 final should have been a cause for pride and celebration, not life-threatening danger and shame. Of course, due to the nature of the disturbances at Wembley, it was not possible for the majority of the...

Qatar: Football World Cup 2022 - Question (30 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Addington, I have received the letter from the chargé d’affaires of the embassy of Qatar yesterday, claiming that Qatar “leads the region on advancing labour rights protection” and has made it clear that “labour law and human rights violations will not be tolerated”. Does the Minister recognise that assessment as accurate, given the continued...

Independent Fan-led Review of Football Governance - Commons Urgent Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, we strongly welcome the independent Crouch review, whose recommendations, I have to say, look suspiciously like the sports section of the Labour Party manifesto, going back several general elections. We have long called for fans to be placed at the centre of the game that they do so much to sustain and for stronger protections when they are mistreated or their beloved clubs...

Football Clubs: Ownership Test - Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have, if any, to legislate to strengthen the “fit and proper person” test for the ownership of football clubs.

Football Clubs: Ownership Test - Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that helpful Answer, but the recent takeover of Newcastle has raised many questions about the suitability of the fit and proper persons test. To be honest, concerns have been around for years but neither the footballing authorities nor the Government have come up with satisfactory answers. Last week, the Premier League’s chief executive said that, while...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 292Q (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Before the noble Lord moves on to the next amendment, thinking back to 2000, the football riots took place in Charleroi and elsewhere, involving some 600 or 700 England fans, and within two weeks the Labour Government swiftly moved to introduce legislation that has been effective for the last 21 years. I do not quite understand how a Government with a majority of this size have failed to act...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 292Q (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: It is Bassam, actually.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 292Q (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Coaker for congratulating me on my amendment before I have spoken to it. I think that is a bit of a rarity in your Lordships’ House, but I will take it from wherever it comes. My Amendment 292S covers racism in football and, in particular, online offences. As the explanatory statement to the amendment says: “This would add online offences,...

Ofcom: Appointment of Chair - Question (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I commend the Minister for his honesty but now that plan A is out of the way—with Paul Dacre having thought better of it and decided to continue with his senior editorial role at the Mail newspapers—can he update noble Lords on plan B? Would the Minister like to come clean and tell the House who the preferred candidate is? Can he also ensure that the noble Lord, Lord Vaizey,...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (23 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the Minister will be pleased to hear that I will be brief, but some thanks are worth echoing. I thank the Minister; it is never easy taking up another person’s Bill halfway through. I have had to do it myself and, at times, I lurched from being completely out of my depth to being a total shambles, so I know how it feels. The noble Lord was neither of those things; he was courteous...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 9 (16 Nov 2021)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, our colleagues on the Lib Dem Benches have made a pretty compelling case here. It is obviously good that we have the Oversight Trust but, with a staff complement of one, anything it does will be light touch. The amendment from the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, makes quite a lot of sense in terms of reviewing arrangements and determining whether further legislation is needed to...
