Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am one of those who backed the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins, and I want to intervene briefly to make a point about the beast with which we are dealing.

The headline reads: “Peers hijack data bill to attack free press through back...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (9 Jan 2018)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, immediately before this debate, we were discussing the pay of women at the BBC.

Local Government Elections (Referendum) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Dec 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Balfe, on giving the House an opportunity to debate electoral reform, albeit only one aspect of it, by introducing this Bill.

Older Persons: Human Rights and Care - Motion to Take Note (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, by far the worst abuse of older people is poverty. This welcome debate covers many other forms of abuse—ageism, elder abuse, inadequate care—and they are all very important.

That is...

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, this has been a really excellent debate and the arguments on all sides have been well expressed.

I do not wish to put this to a vote tonight. We will see in...

Lord Lipsey: I thank the noble Viscount for drawing attention to that.

Horserace Betting Levy Regulations 2017 - Motion to Approve (29 Mar 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I beg to move the amendment in my name.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (1st Day) (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, hearing the words “TEF metrics” made me come to my feet, because a consistent theme to run through our debates on the Bill has been the developing understanding that the metrics are wholly inadequate and, in particular, that the national student survey is not the basis for any judgments on teaching quality. I am glad that the Government have moved as far as they have on the NSS...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (1st Day) (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am very tempted to seek the opinion of the House because I think the Minister might find himself having to be his own Teller, given the unanimity in the debate so far.

I shall...
