European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it is rather difficult to stand out in a debate of 185 speakers, but I am perhaps almost unique in one aspect, in that I really do not have terribly strong views on Europe. I voted no in 1975, rather to the horror of Anthony Crosland, for whom I then worked. Even this time, I hummed and hawed a good bit before voting to remain, partly for fear of the unknown but more because I found...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Money Laundering: EU Law (9 Feb 2017)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they intend to announce their policy with regard to the implementation of the EU Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive; and what assessment they have made of its impact on the bookmaking sector.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this very good debate. I also thank noble Lords who resisted taking part, because I will not be terribly late for my favourite event of the year, the Gold Medal Showcase at Trinity Laban, where our musicians compete at a level you would not believe if you were not in the room. First, I want to refer back to the debate that I was having...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I start by apologising for the absence from this debate of the noble Lord, Lord Bew, who has been delayed on his flight from Northern Ireland by weather. He was very keen to be here and will greatly regret that he has missed this debate. I have four amendments in this group, beginning with Amendment 187. I can describe them most concisely as a range of options to de-fang the...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (4th Day) (18 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: Before the noble Lord sits down, will he explain what consolation he will offer to those institutions which are put out of business, at worst, while we perfect the metric that is being used in this case?

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (4th Day) (18 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I chair the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, which I think is a very effective conservatoire. On Monday night I was closeted with my board, making one of the most difficult decisions that as chairman I have faced: should we go in to the TEF, which I think is supposed to close in about a week’s time, or not? The situation was simple. None of us thinks anything of it,...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (9 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply, but I have to say that if we are going to go on like this, it is going to be very hard pounding. I have great respect for the Minister, and I know he has the interests of education at heart. All he had to say was that the Government are prepared to consider alternative titles before we come back to this on Report and if we can find one better than...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (9 Jan 2017)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I chair Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, which is part of the university sector. I feel, rising at this stage, a bit like an actor rising to play the porter in “Macbeth”. There have been hours of drama and extraordinary debate about matters of deep principle. I have to make a speech, if I can, that at the same time is amusing but makes a serious point. I am...

Press Regulation (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it has been a terribly long time since the report was written and only now are we debating it. That, I think, is a bit of a disgrace to the House, but it does enable me to make a first point. When we read the report today, it is amazing how little has happened in the almost two years that it has been awaiting our attention. Apart from the Government’s consultation on Section 40...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, this is the second Thursday in a month in which the House has focused on the potential downsides of Brexit. Last time we were talking about higher education, and now it is health and social care. There are many other subjects of a similar nature that we could debate. I am tempted to suggest that we run the whole series and at the end of it cock a snook at the popular press by...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. I should correct one misunderstanding, which is probably my fault. I did not mean to say that Cameron was doing this for wicked motives; in fact, I said that he might be doing it for high moral motives. However, my more than 40 years in politics, including working for a Prime Minister and a Foreign Secretary, have persuaded me that it is not a...

International Development (Official Development Assistance Target) (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, this is a simple Bill that I can simply precis. In the last Parliament, legislation was passed committing Britain to spending at least 0.7% of GNI on official development assistance. Ministers are to report to Parliament if they miss this target. However, by making the target an annual one, the Government run the risk of having to rush through expenditure at the end of each...

Immigration: Overseas Students - Motion to Take Note (17 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I chair Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, which is one of the four great conservatoires in London. Perhaps the proudest moment in my time as chair was in June when Radio 3 broadcast live three of our finest pianists from St John’s Smith Square—three of a very fine crop. Noble Lords should note the names because they will hear them again: Giulio Potenza, Gen Li and...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Care Homes: Nurses (17 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what will be the cost in a full year of the increase in the rate of NHS-funded nursing care to £156.25 per week.

Investigatory Powers Bill - Commons Amendments (16 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the Commons has spoken and we must, as usual, bow the knee, even if it took us twice to get round to it this time. I take some consolation from what the Minister said, because at least the consultation document is something concrete which has an end date. However, we know that Governments can take an awfully long time after the end date of consultations deciding and announcing what...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: National Insurance Contributions (10 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have made an estimate of the revenue that would be raised by (1) a one percentage point rise in the rate of national insurance, and (2) the imposition of national insurance contributions of one per cent on employees who have reached State Pension age; and if so, how much those estimated revenues would be.

Brexit: Impact on Universities and Scientific Research - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I chair the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich. It is the nicest job I have ever had in my life. It is a very successful institution and recently received HEFCE’s seal of approval as a world-class teaching institution. We also recently achieved degree-awarding powers after a minute examination by the Privy Council. We are a very international place,...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Commons Reasons (2 Nov 2016)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I have some sympathy with the Minister’s position that this is not a brilliant place in which to legislate on press matters, but we need to put this in a bit of perspective. In the previous Parliament, there was total agreement in both Houses, among the Government and the Opposition, about what needed to be done to bring Leveson into effect. What happened after the election?...
