Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill - Second Reading (26 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, although this Bill is welcome Bill its provisions would, of course, have been better within a government Bill that incorporated a comprehensive programme for the reform of prisons and courts. Our prisons are now, I am afraid, in a pretty sorry state—I think the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, referred to a crisis—thanks to government underinvestment and poor management. The...

Duchy of Cornwall Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I also congratulate my noble friend Lord Berkeley on his perseverance on this matter, on today’s Bill, and on his fascinating introduction, which was then reinforced by my noble friend Lord Adonis’s speech. Along with the noble Lord, Lord Marks, I am delighted to be able to return to the issue covered in Clause 1 of the Bill because it follows a long discussion that we had back...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, in addition to thanking the noble Lord, Lord Campbell, for the timeliness of this debate and the historical approach he took, may I also pay tribute to the near three-quarters of a million who took to the streets on Saturday, calling for people to play a part in decisions about the future of our country, and asserting their right to have their voices heard? Agree with them or no, it...

Brexit: Preparedness for EU Exit - Private Notice Question (25 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I beg leave to ask a Question of which I have given private notice.

Brexit: Preparedness for EU Exit - Private Notice Question (25 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the Prime Minister said no deal is better than a bad deal, but now the NAO says the border and HMRC systems needed under WTO rules simply cannot be implemented in time. Business cannot prepare; the car industry warns about the catastrophic impact that no deal would have on its manufacture; ports would be jammed, even without Mr Grayling’s flotilla; and medicines would be in short...

Brexit: Civil Service Impartiality - Question (24 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, this may be a sad day for the Civil Service in losing Sir Jeremy Heywood but it is a happy day for us. I am sure that even the Lord Speaker, having commended us on reducing the size of the House, will welcome this exception for our new colleague. We wish him well. The best tribute to him will be if we can continue what he says in his farewell letter: that he has tried, “to...

EU Referendum: Conduct - Question (22 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the DCMS Committee in the other place has just published alarming evidence of a so-called “Mainstream Network”, which appears to have spent £250,000 to reach 10 million Facebook users, urging them to lobby their MPs to “chuck Chequers”. Could the Minister ask the Electoral Commission to investigate this because it could fall into a pre-election period, or get his own...

Brexit: Dispute Resolution and Enforcement (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It is always a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Ludford. I am afraid we are becoming a bit of a double act. I am not sure it is one the Minister always appreciates, but there you are—it is his penalty in life. I also thank my noble friend Lady Kennedy of The Shaws, and her committee, for yet another insightful, clear and informative report. Like the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, I...

Tenant Fees Bill - Second Reading (10 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the Government have been on a very welcome journey with regard to the private rented sector. First, and following pressure in this House, they required all letting agents to belong to an alternative dispute or ombudsman scheme. Then, again following pressure in your Lordships’ House, they moved on client money protection. That was followed, as the Minister reported, by compulsory...

Brexit: EU Commission - Question (10 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I note that the Minister continues to use the words “implementation period”. Will he now admit that after the end of March we will still be in negotiations and it will be a transition period because negotiations will be carrying on and we will not have the sort of deal that simply needs implementing? Does he agree that in future it is about a transition not an implementation period?

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement but I wonder whether the Government actually own a calendar. After 18 months, and just 171 days before we are due to leave, we have more pages on no deal than on the deal, or indeed on the framework for our future relationship. Do the Government really want us to crash out despite the warm words we just heard in the Statement, or dare they not...

Police Forces: Financial Stability - Statement (12 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, there is a bit of a conflict. On the one hand, the NAO report is recognised and accepted but, on the other, the Home Secretary immediately says that he does not recognise the picture that it paints. But the NAO says, on its good evidence, that the Home Office, “lacks a long-term plan for policing”, and, “does not know if the police system is financially sustainable”, and...

Brexit: No Deal - Question (11 Sep 2018)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Many people in this House will be thinking about the D-day celebrations next year, and of course they will be the first since we will have withdrawn from the great lesson of the war which led to the setting up of the European Union. If there was to be no deal, it is hard to know what would be the most fearful thing. Would it be that 2 million UK citizens living in the EU had lost their...
