Brexit: Movement of People in the Cultural Sector (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Black, I come at this topic from a music background. As he kindly mentioned, I was chair of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance; I co-chair the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Classical Music here in Parliament; and I serve under the noble Lord, Lord Burns, on the Mid Wales Music Trust, which supports music there. I have done some in-depth...

Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 May 2019)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am a facts geek. I chair the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Statistics with Kelvin Hopkins in the Commons and am vice-chair of Full Fact, the fact-checking charity, so naturally I welcome the Bill because it is going to provide more facts. I also welcome something that is slightly more unusual to welcome: that there is such a short speakers’ list. I think that, if we had been...

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Motion to Take Note (2 May 2019)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, certainly knows how to get things done. No sooner did this subject for debate appear on the Order Paper than the streets of London were clogged with Extinction Rebellion demonstrators, yesterday the Commons voted to declare a climate emergency and today we have a 660-page report from the Committee on Climate Change. I think that that is tremendous....

Further Discussions with the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2019)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I have not addressed this House on Brexit since 31 January 2018, and I doubt whether many other noble Lords who have spoken tonight can say the same. This has partly been a matter of ill health but also, when I look back, I have found that I have nothing to say that I did not say the last time I spoke. I am not as passionately against leaving the EU on the right terms as most noble...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Legislative Reform Orders (12 Feb 2019)

Poverty: Metrics - Question for Short Debate (21 Jan 2019)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it would take more than three minutes to thank the noble Baroness, Lady Stroud, adequately, but I will use my introduction to give a commercial for the seminar that she and I, as chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Statistics, will be holding in Room G on 12 February at 11 o’clock to go into these matters in more depth than is possible tonight. Poverty statistics...

Gaming Machine (Miscellaneous Amendments and Revocation) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (18 Dec 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I hope that I can bring a certain expertise on this matter to the debate this evening, not because I was professor of gambling studies at Salford University—although I was—but because I go into betting shops, which is probably not true of many noble Lords here. However, I must say that I have never been even faintly tempted to put £2, let alone £100, into one of these infernal...

Constitutional Convention - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I strongly support the proposal of the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, for a constitutional convention. This is as well, because I will not say a single word after now with which he will not vehemently disagree. I hope he will forgive me. As the last two speakers have done, I want to speak briefly about electoral reform. I know that AV was decisively rejected in the 2011 referendum. As a...

Schools: Music Education - Motion to Take Note (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it is a particular pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Black, this afternoon because this is something on which I agree with him. Usually we are clashing about press regulation, but there are two things that we have in common: a love of music and a love of dogs. I am delighted that he has raised the former of those this afternoon. I speak as joint chair of the All-Party...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Social Services: Fees and Charges (17 Oct 2018)

The Politics of Polling (Political Polling and Digital Media Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2018)

Lord Lipsey: I shall be very brief, or kick-off really will be threatened, certainly for participants in the next debate. I thank the Minister for his reply and in particular for the tone of that reply, which was in contrast to the official government response to the committee. I welcome in particular what he said about the British Polling Council, although I do not agree with all of it. Transparency on...

The Politics of Polling (Political Polling and Digital Media Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I understand that our debate this afternoon is not time limited, so it may give comfort to noble Lords if I assure them that I intend to resume my seat in time for anybody who wishes to catch the kick-off tonight. It was a real pleasure and privilege to chair this committee. The self-congratulatory phrase “the House of Lords at its best” is grossly overused but I am going to use...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (14 May 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I have some sympathy with what the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, has said, but equally I think that we are in danger of making this yes or no, black or white and getting ourselves boxed into corners. Something remarkable happened a couple of weeks ago. The Sun carried a story based on a report from the Resolution Foundation. I shall not go into the full details, but the Resolution...
