Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 95 (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I thank my noble and learned friend Lord Bellamy very much for that wording. I also thank all those who have spoken in this short but perfectly formed, deeply efficient and extremely tenacious debate for their support, which has been much appreciated. Perhaps I might say that this has also been an instructive lesson to Members from the House of Commons as to how we get things done...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 95 (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I am sorry that due to a family matter I could not be in the House for the Committee stage of this Bill to move the similar amendment tabled earlier. I am very grateful to my noble friend Lady Finn for speaking to that amendment. This amendment was tabled in the House of Commons by Stella Creasy MP based on her experience as a victim of harassment, but it is not unique to her...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 76 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 87A, 88A and 158, which, as the Minister has already said, discuss additional protections for victims of rape who are subject to requests for third-party material. I thank my noble friend Lady Finn, and the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, for their support for these amendments, which I know are also supported by my noble friend Lady Newlove, the Victims’...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Mar 2024)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, one of the places where abusers encounter their victims is the online world. Does my noble friend agree that it is important that her department considers funding for charities offering online support to victims, including the excellent Revenge Porn Helpline?

Skill Shortages in Business and Industry - Question (28 Feb 2024)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, as chair of the East Midlands Institute of Technology and of the national Careers & Enterprise Company, I think my noble friend is somewhat selling this Government’s achievements short in support for training, skills and careers advice. Does she agree that the important thing now is to make sure that the system—a strengthening system—continues, including working with the local...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Homicide: Sentencing ( 5 Dec 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: To ask His Majesty's Government when the Ministry of Justice plans to publish a consultation on sentencing for murders committed in domestic settings, in particular (1) consulting on increasing the tariff from 15 to 25 years, and (2) consulting on the perpetrator’s hands being treated as weapons.

Online Safety Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I welcome Amendments 5 and 6, as well as the amendments that reflect the work done and comments made in earlier stages of this debate by the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy. Of course, we are not quite there yet with this Bill, but we are well on the way as this is the Bill’s last formal stage in this Chamber before it goes back to the House of Commons. Amendments 5 and 6 relate to...

Online Safety Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 281BA (19 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, the hour is late and I will not detain the House for long. However, I hope that the fact that we are all still sitting here at the end of a long Report stage, because we care very much about the Bill and what we are trying to achieve, will be noted by my noble friend the Minister, his officials and others who are watching. I thank my noble friend Lady Harding for so ably introducing...

Online Safety Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 245 (19 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I wish to test the opinion of the House and I beg to move. Ayes 196, Noes 183.

Online Safety Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 238A (19 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 245. I would like to thank my noble friend the Minister, and also the Minister on leave, for the conversations that I have had with them about this amendment and related issues. As we have already heard, the platform categorisation is extremely important. So far, much of it is unknown, including which sites are actually going to be in which categories. For...

Online Safety Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 236C (19 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I will speak briefly to Amendments 272AA and 274AA, only because at the previous stage of the Bill I tabled amendments related to the reporting of illegal content and fraudulent advertisements, both in reporting, and complaints and transparency. I have not re-tabled them here, but I have had conversations with my noble friend the Minister. It is still unclear to those in the House...

Online Safety Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 152 (12 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I will speak very briefly to this amendment; I know that the House is keen to get on to other business today. I very much welcome the amendment that the Government have tabled. My noble friend the Minister has always said that they want to keep women and girls safe online. As has been referred to elsewhere, the importance of making our digital streets safer cannot be overestimated....

Online Safety Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 35 (10 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: I rise briefly to speak to this group of amendments. I want to pick up where my noble friend Lord Bethell has just finished. The Government have listened hugely on this Bill and, by and large, the Bill, and the way in which Ministers have engaged, is a model of how the public wants to see their Parliament acting: collaboratively and collegiately, listening to each other and with a clear sense...

Online Safety Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 32 ( 6 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I will speak very briefly to Amendments 55 and 182. We are now at the stage of completely taking the lead from the Minister and the noble Lords opposite—the noble Lords, Lord Stevenson and Lord Clement-Jones—that we have to accept these amendments, because we need now to see how this will work in practice. That is why we all think that we will be back here talking about these...

Online Safety Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 7 ( 6 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: Very briefly, before I speak to these amendments, I want to welcome them. Having spoken to and introduced some of the threats of sharing intimate images under the Domestic Abuse Act 2021, I think it is really welcome that everything has been brought together in one place. Again, I pay tribute to the work of Dame Maria Miller and many others outside who have raised these as issues. I also want...

Online Safety Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2A ( 6 Jul 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I will speak briefly to Amendments 5C and 7A in this group. I welcome the Government’s moves to criminalise cyberflashing. It is something that many have campaigned for in both Houses and outside for many years. I will not repeat the issues so nobly introduced by the noble Baroness, Lady Burt, and I say yet again that I suspect that the noble Baroness, Lady Featherstone, is...

Fighting Fraud (Fraud Act 2006 and Digital Fraud Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, I rise very briefly at the end of what has been a fantastic debate to thank all noble Lords who have taken part. The breadth of this debate has captured the significant spread of issues in our report and more broadly, and has demonstrated why we were right to look at the whole of the fraud chain and why we will not get on top of this problem unless we tackle all elements of that...

Fighting Fraud (Fraud Act 2006 and Digital Fraud Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2023)

Baroness Morgan of Cotes: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to move that this House takes note of the report from the Fraud Act 2006 and Digital Fraud Committee—the committee I had the pleasure of chairing—Fighting Fraud: Breaking the Chain, which we published last November. I declare my interests as a non-executive director of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, chair of the Association of British...
