Lotteries: Good Causes - Question (18 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, I wonder whether more can be done to publicise the good causes that the National Lottery funds. I am thinking in particular of telling the public at points of sale what has been done at local and regional level.

European Union Settlement Scheme - Question (16 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, does not the Minister believe that there should, equally, be a right of appeal following an unsuccessful application under a—God forbid—no-deal scenario, as there is currently in the event of a deal? There is no good reason why this should not be the case. Will the Government look into that?

Public Spaces Protection Orders - Question (11 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, will the Minister admit that the powers that PSPOs give are too great and wide-ranging? Their use can extend to sweeping real concerns, such as rough sleeping, under the carpet, as the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, said, through criminalisation, as more than 50 councils have used those powers, and to restricting personal freedoms, including the right to protest in a public space....

Asthma - Question (3 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: To ask Her Majesty's Government what support they are giving to people suffering from asthma, including on access to medicines.

Asthma - Question (3 Jul 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, Asthma UK finds that, of the 2.3 million people with asthma in England who pay for their prescriptions, more than three-quarters struggle to afford them, let alone follow an essential treatment plan. Does the Minister agree that prescription charging sends out entirely the wrong signals to the whole community about the seriousness of the condition which causes the deaths of many...

Metal Theft - Question (26 Jun 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, what strategies are in place to protect our public sculptures, some of which are vulnerable to metal theft? Are we fully aware of what we may have already lost in recent years and what has disappeared from our townscapes and other spaces, either through metal theft or for other reasons?

Education: Music A-level - Question (24 Jun 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, will the Minister accept that now the Russell group has now dropped its list of facilitating subjects, there is no justification for the Government to continue with the EBacc either?

Theatre Market - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Earl for introducing this debate and setting out his arguments so forcefully. I am going to take a wider view of what access might mean for theatre. We continue to have, in this country, a remarkably successful and lauded theatre. It is interesting that, at present, much of it touches closely on political and state-of-the-nation concerns. Jez...

Creative Industries: Apprenticeship Levy - Question (4 Jun 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, it is very worrying that much of this levy is not being spent. Does the Minister believe that some of the viable suggestions that the industry, including ScreenSkills, has made need to be acted upon quickly, otherwise this money will be lost from the system? It is an incredible waste in a sector that is crying out for skilled workers.

Museums and Galleries - Question (23 May 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, the local authority museums urgently need better funding. A collection has been lost in Hertford, for example, and there has been a loss of curators at Leicester’s important city museums. The next spending review must take these things into account.

Brexit: Movement of People in the Cultural Sector (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, I want to frame my contribution in two ways: first, through a discussion about the service industries more generally; and secondly, by addressing perhaps a wider definition of culture than that covered by this report, so ably introduced by the noble Lord, Lord Jay. The first point to make is that the importance of the service industries—which make up 80% of our economy —is...

Sackler Trust: Donations - Question (27 Mar 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the wider implications of the decisions by the National Portrait Gallery and Tate to forgo the intended donations from the Sackler Trust.

Sackler Trust: Donations - Question (27 Mar 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, first, looking forward, does the Minister not recognise that there needs to be some manner of formal public vetting of donors to our national museums and other institutions in the light of growing public awareness about where the money comes from, particularly with regard to sizeable donations? Secondly, does he not feel that it is high time that government reaffirmed a commitment...

Trade Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 24 (13 Mar 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, I have put my name to this important amendment and I will speak briefly about services in relation to free movement. The recent no-deal impact statement says that free movement of people supports services. It would be more correct to say that free movement is intrinsic to services. This is certainly true of the creative industries but also of many other areas of the services sector....

Brexit: Small Businesses - Question (5 Mar 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, is the Minister aware that many British workers who run small businesses in the services sector are already losing contracts with EU companies because of their insistence on British access to the single market, in other words, free movement of people? In these instances, it makes no difference whether it is May’s deal or no deal.

Theatre Tickets: London - Question (28 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, has the Minister seen the study by the National Campaign for the Arts which shows that ticket prices in all areas of the arts are rising at a rate well above inflation because of the reliance on earning money from the public through ticket prices? The result is that the demographic has narrowed and attendance overall falls, while regional inequalities are exacerbated. Will the...

Libraries: Closures - Question (19 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, libraries are not the only public cultural assets suffering from the Government’s continuing cuts to local councils. Is the Minister aware of the intended sale next month by Hertfordshire County Council of 428 artworks, including work by Barbara Hepworth, Julian Trevelyan and other well-known British artists, despite a petition signed by local people to stop the sale? What is the...

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, I am speaking in the gap, so I will be brief. The Government’s five words that have worried me most right from the beginning of these debates are, “the brightest and the best”, and there they were again in the very first paragraph of Sajid Javid’s opening speech in the Immigration Bill’s Second Reading debate last month in the Commons. To take the example of the creative...

Trade Bill - Committee (4th Day) (4 Feb 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: My Lords, earlier the Minister mentioned crossing borders. Would that include onward movement, which is a particular concern of not only individuals and self-employed people in this country but British people living in Europe? Time and again, I have heard that that is a particular concern.

Education: Art and Design - Question (17 Jan 2019)

the Earl of Clancarty: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to encourage the teaching of art and design in schools.
