His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Motion for an Humble Address (12 Apr 2021)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I join others in expressing, here in this House, my deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. As perhaps many of us know at first hand, however prepared we think we are for a loss such as this, the shock of bereavement is acute. So much has been said and written about Prince Philip in these past few days. To the surprise...

British Library Board (Power to Borrow) Bill - Second Reading (19 Mar 2021)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, it is a huge privilege to follow the noble Lord, Lord Cormack. I refer to my interests as a present member of the board of the British Library. It has been a great pleasure to listen to the noble Baroness, Lady Blackstone, who was such an inspiring chair of the library when I first joined the board. I certainly support the Bill, which was so eloquently introduced by the noble Lord,...

National Security and Investment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 70 (16 Mar 2021)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie of Downpatrick. I speak as yet another former member of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament. I strongly support the Bill, but there is a scrutiny gap which has been well identified in this short debate. Other speakers have made the key point in support of explicit oversight by the Intelligence and Security...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Dec 2020)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I support the case for strengthening oversight as put forward in Amendments 46 and 73, and I add my voice to those questioning the case for prior judicial approval of criminal conduct authorisations. I speak not as a lawyer or practitioner but as another former member of the Intelligence and Security Committee, where we had plenty of evidence of the importance of covert human...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (11 Nov 2020)

Lord Janvrin: I too congratulate the noble and learned Lord, Lord Stewart, and the noble Lords, Lord McLoughlin and Lord Walney, for three memorable maiden speeches, and welcome them to this House. I join this debate having served in the last two parliamentary Sessions on the Intelligence and Security Committee. I welcome this Bill, and the need to give a legal basis to an activity which, as I frequently...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 16 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I too—alongside the noble Lord, Lord Wills, who has just spoken—was a member of the Select Committee on the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 so ably chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Shutt. I have added my name to this cross-party amendment, as I continue to believe that the Government should address the issue of the completeness of the electoral registers as a...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 11 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Janvrin: I support the amendment in the name of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas; I do so because the impartiality and independence of the Boundary Commission assumes greater importance if automaticity of the implementation of the commission’s findings is accepted under this Bill. I readily accept that the Government understand this, as the Minister pointed out so clearly in Committee. If...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Second Reading (27 Jul 2020)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I was a member of the Select Committee on the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, which reported earlier this month. I intervene in this debate to underline that some of the key conclusions of that Select Committee report bear directly on the aims of the Bill. As the Minister stated, the Government wish by the Bill to deliver their manifesto commitment to have...

Intelligence and Security Committee: Russia Report - Private Notice Question (22 Jul 2020)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I declare an interest as a member of the committee in the last Parliament that produced this report. I am pleased to see that it has been recognised as a wake-up call to the Government about the dangers of the covert threat posed by the Russian state. Should there be a single government department responsible for countering hostile state activities in the United Kingdom, whether...

Drones: International Law - Question for Short Debate (16 Jan 2020)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, for introducing this timely short debate. I will speak briefly about the importance of Parliament being able to scrutinise government decisions on the use of drones. I do so as a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee in the last Parliament, and its predecessor, which issued the 2016 report entitled UK Lethal Drone Strikes in Syria....

Detainee Issues - Statement (18 Jul 2019)

Lord Janvrin: I draw attention to my membership of the Intelligence and Security Committee. I take the forward-looking element of the Statement and welcome the publication of The Principles, which take into account the comments of Sir Adrian Fulford and many of the important changes that the ISC recommended. One point of interest is the reference to new principles coming into effect when the necessary...

D-day: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (4 Jun 2019)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I thank the Government for giving time for this debate and the Minister for introducing the subject with his customary touch and eloquence. I am also a member of the Normandy Memorial Trust, so ably led by my noble friends Lord Ricketts and Lord Dannatt. I will turn to the work of the trust in a moment, but first I will say a word about the importance of commemoration. As someone...

Artificial Intelligence (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I add my thanks to the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for instigating this debate. I congratulate him and his colleagues, their advisers and staff on their excellent report. It is clear, comprehensive and very thought-provoking. The Government have rightly taken it seriously as an important contribution to the realisation of their industrial strategy, one that sets artificial...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, and I look forward to her contribution to the detailed scrutiny of this Bill, which I am sure will be extremely important. I thank the Minister for her introduction, and apologise for being a couple of minutes late for the start of her speech. I welcome this debate and especially look forward to the maiden speeches of the...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to speak in this Second Reading debate. It is always slightly daunting to follow the noble Lord, Lord Lucas. We were colleagues on the Digital Skills Committee a few years back, and he was pretty daunting on that too, being a great fund of knowledge on this subject. I mention at the outset my interests as set out in the register, including as a trustee of...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I may be the 30th speaker to congratulate my noble friend Lady Lane-Fox on introducing this debate with a fantastic speech. It is no less heartfelt for being the 30th, but I will be brief. I welcome the debate for three reasons. First, the emphasis on digital understanding is very refreshing. We have had debates about digital skills before, but the need to look at the some of the...

Security in the UK - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (10 Jul 2017)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I thank the Minister and the Government for finding time for this timely and important debate. I want to focus my remarks on the intelligence community—namely, the three intelligence services and their co-ordinating structure in Whitehall. I draw attention to the fact that I was a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee during the last Parliament. I pay tribute, as...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Janvrin: I thank the Minister for his helpful response. I take his point about the importance of the independence of the Investigatory Powers Commissioner. Amendment 142 agreed.

Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 142 and 145 to Clause 212. These are in my name and I speak as a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee. This clause deals with the annual reports to be made by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner to the Prime Minister on the functions of the judicial commissioners. The subject of Amendment 142 concerns those targeted warrants which relate to...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Oct 2016)

Lord Janvrin: My Lords, I rise briefly to speak to Amendment 1, tabled in my name. I declare an interest as a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee. When the ISC reported on the draft Bill, we recommended that privacy protection should form the backbone of the legislation, around which the exceptional, intrusive powers would then be built. This recommendation was to underline at the very outset...
