Brexit: Cross-party Discussions - Question (16 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it is not the question of whether we leave that is in front of us, but the question of how we leave. As we have kept saying, the withdrawal deal is not the right one to bring us out. We have now heard from Mr Fox, for example, that the deal we have in front of us at the moment has to involve checks at or near the Northern Ireland border, so the question is not whether or not we...

Brexit: Free Trade Agreement - Question (14 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, given the letter that all those Tory leadership hopefuls have just written, saying that they would never countenance what this House would like—a permanent customs union—and as the Prime Minister seems to concur with that view, in what way were the Government willing to compromise in the talks that they offered to the Opposition?

Census (Return Particulars and Removal of Penalties) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I thank the Minister for introducing the Bill and for repeating his 1981 gig. I do not know whether he will do this every 10 years from now on. I also congratulate the Government on using our spare Chamber time on a useful piece of legislation, for once. Perhaps we could also now have the public service ombudsman Bill, the Grocott hereditaries Bill or some Law Commission Bill to put our...

Conduct of Debate in Public Life - Motion to Regret (9 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: A non-partisan plea from someone who has attacked every party except the Lib Dems—you could not make it up. I am sorry; I said I would resist doing that, but it was just too much of an open goal. Apologies. My Lords, I also thank my noble friend Lord Harris for tabling this timely—indeed, all too topical—debate. It is sad that we need it but, as he said, we need to detoxify political...

Competition and Markets Authority: Legislative and Institutional Reforms - Question for Short Debate (8 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the letter from the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy dated 21 February which sets out the CMA’s proposals on legislative and institutional reforms to safeguard the interests of consumers and to maintain and improve public confidence in markets.

Competition and Markets Authority: Legislative and Institutional Reforms - Question for Short Debate (8 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, the Question posed for debate is exactly the one that I want to ask of the Government: what is their response to the CMA’s proposals? In one sense, I am sorry that we are debating this now, rather than when the CMA was established, when we did try to raise these very issues. My noble friends Lord Whitty and Lord Stevenson and I tried to get a consumer focus written into the...

National Security Council Leak - Statement (2 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Answer on such a serious matter. There are two issues here. One is the potential provider of 5G, where Ministers can argue their corner in Cabinet, in the NSC or with the Prime Minister; if they still do not like the decision, they can resign and make their case from outside the Government. However, what is not acceptable is to leak from the...

Elections: Online Interference - Question (1 May 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Perhaps the Minister would like to congratulate the Observer and Carole Cadwalladr on her Scoop of the Year award from the London Press Club for exposing the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is worth seeing her TED talk on this, if noble Lords have not. It was investigative journalism, not our regulator, that identified these problems. Given that we are likely to have the European elections...

European Parliament Elections - Question (24 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, it is quite clear that we will be fighting these elections, because the Government have not managed to get a deal to which the Commons agrees. In that case, will the Cabinet Office agree to do two things? First, will it alert EU citizens living in this country that they will be able to vote on that day if they are registered by 8 May? Will the Government, for example, remind those...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Voluntary Schools: Capital Investment (8 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Agnew of Oulton on 28 March (HL14650), what are the (1) names, (2) related local authorities, (3) phases, and (4) religions, of each expression of interest in the new capital funding scheme for voluntary-aided schools they received.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, and my noble friend Lady Taylor for their reports. We may feel that we have worked hard in this Chamber today, but a lot of work went into those and into making them available to the House. I also thank the 250 Members of this House who have, again and again, turned up to support this Bill and give it what we should give it, which is a Second...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I think the noble Lord was trying to be helpful. Unfortunately, without my Motion we would remain unable to deal with more than one stage; we would have to use the normal intervals between them. Therefore I am afraid that we do need my amendment to the Standing Orders to do that. Therefore I wish this Motion to be put to the House.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I think it was in about 1975 that the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, and I first met, which just shows how long we have both been around.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It’s the way he tells them. Two interesting and different things have just been said by the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton, who very honestly confessed that he hoped the Bill would never reach the statute book—let us be clear; that is what all this is about—as opposed to the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, who says, “I want it done properly”. To some extent, the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton, may...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords—

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, we have had two speakers in favour of the amendment. I repeat two things I have said before. One is that the best advice is that we should all have a cup of tea. I second that one. The other is that, as I said at the beginning, if Members are against the Motion I tabled that we should hear the Bill today, the correct course is to vote against my Motion. Tabling a series of...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: Is the noble Lord addressing himself to the words of the amendment?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: I said that we should deal with this Bill in time for it to have effect. That was the point I made—that if we did not deal with the Bill before we ran out of time, there was no point in having it. I did not go into the issue of Brexit.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, we are actually dealing with the amendment on whether we should have a committee report. I draw the attention of the House to the speech Mr Steve Baker gave late last night in the Commons. I do not know why I should pick on him at this particular moment—
