Brexit: Immigration - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Can the Minister confirm that there is no confusion about the way that the new computer system at the border will work, and can he deny the allegations in the press that it will take five years to put it in place?

Passport (Fees) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Will the noble Baroness say when the opportunity to discuss that will be?

Media Advertising - Question (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, the Minister understandably could not answer all the questions asked by the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, but will she undertake to look at those questions, answer them and place the answers in the Library, and see whether it is not time for a thorough review of the governance of the ASA?

NHS: US Companies - Question (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to permit United States companies to bid for NHS contracts as part of any future United Kingdom-United States trade deal.

NHS: US Companies - Question (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: The Minister will be aware that I have had a number of exchanges about the likely agenda for the negotiations on the USA-UK trade deal. I have been seeking to establish whether the NHS will be part of those negotiations, and I have been told that vigorous protection will be given to the NHS. Is not the most vigorous protection that could be given not to have it on the agenda at all?

Gender Equality: Pay - Question (21 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, where does the Minister suggest that we look for the next steps and action to be taken in those areas where equal pay still does not exist? Returning to our backyard, the public service—she just mentioned local government—is it not true that there are still significant elements of unequal pay within the Civil Service, the public service and local government? This is an area...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, it is this side. I have been waiting patiently on this side. I am grateful to the noble Baroness; you will have your chance. I support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Warner, signed by several other noble Lords. The UK is a leader in public health. We have done extraordinarily well on the world stage and within Europe. I trust that the Minister will have no problem with the...

Prescription Drugs: Dependence - Question (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, is there not a case for a wider review of addictions in general? Public Health England did a review of alcohol and the Government ignored the report. A public health review in this area may be ignored entirely and there is nothing to make the Government do anything about it. We have just heard about what is happening with gambling; the Government have succumbed to the blandishments...

Integrated Communities - Statement (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I welcome the report. I would like to refer particularly to chapter 6, where I sense a weakness. “Education, education, education” is very good indeed but, if there is no employment at the end of it, it can lead to disillusionment and further problems, so I am very much in favour of “Investment, investment, investment”. Could the noble Lord give some indication of the kind...

Meetings with Ministers - Question (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, in 2013 the now noble Lord, Lord Lansley, introduced the lobbying Bill in the other place. It does not extend to activities such as those that the Minister just mentioned. Is that a satisfactory state of affairs? Should we not amend the lobbying Act to cover more of the activities now being revealed by the press?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment standing in my name on the Order Paper. Amendment 144 (to Amendment 142) withdrawn. Amendments 145 to 147C (to Amendment 142) not moved.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am pleased to follow my noble friend Lord Monks. I support the fundamental aim of Amendment 142 that Parliament should be empowered to determine the mandate for the Government to follow in the talks about the UK’s future relations with the EU. Amendment 144 seeks to place a requirement on HMG to secure mutual recognition of professional qualifications. The Government have agreed...

International Women’s Day: Progress on Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note (8 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Williams, for giving us the opportunity for this debate today. I express my gratitude to her, to women in general and to some particular women too. I start, rather like the noble Baroness, Lady Browning, with an expression of gratitude to my mother. Had she been alive, she would have been 113 this week. She bore three sons within three...

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (8 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, could it be perhaps that noble Lords wish to speak in the next debate, which they see as more important?

Emergency Hospital Admissions - Question (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Is the Minister aware that in 2016-17, 30% of admissions to A&E of people aged 65 and over were alcohol-related? Is he further aware that, given the need for the services of psychiatrists to look after those people, training for psychiatrists has reduced dramatically in the past 10 years and we have no facilities available to look after them? Turning to a longer-term public health policy,...
