Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (13 Dec 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, as these amendments deal with the media, I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. I will say a brief word first about Amendment 50 and the other government amendments in this group. These amendments seek to deal with a number of the problems raised in Committee by noble Lords across the...

Health: Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke - Question (12 Dec 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many people with a diagnosis of atrial fibrillation who were admitted to hospital with a stroke in 2016-17 were not on an appropriate anti-coagulation therapy prior to admission.

Health: Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke - Question (12 Dec 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: I thank my noble friend for that Answer. As he knows, atrial fibrillation is a significant cause of stroke but it is also avoidable, because it is easily diagnosable and easily treatable with anti-coagulant medication. Yet as the figures he just gave us show, more than 7,000 people in England who were admitted to hospital with a stroke last year were known to have AF but were not receiving...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (6th Day) (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I thank all those who have taken part in this thoughtful and important debate—despite the fact that it is the first time I have been likened to someone who has murdered his parents, thwarted the will of Parliament and, according to the noble Lord, Lord Puttnam, is the personification of all the sins of the media. I regret that, given the seriousness of the issues for the academic,...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (6th Day) (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, in moving Amendment 163A I shall speak also to Amendments 164A, 170B to 170D, 172A to 172C—a number of which the noble Viscount, Lord Colville of Culross, has added his name to—and to the Question whether Clause 165 should stand part. I fear that if noble Lords are still suffering from indigestion as a result of the alphabet soup of amendments we had in Committee last week on...

Written Answers — Home Office: Madeleine McCann (22 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 1 November (HL2164), what criteria they will use to assess the success of the Special Grant funding for Operation Grange between now and the end of March 2018.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (13 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: I am grateful to my noble friend for those words and to all noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate at this late hour. Apart from anything else, it has given me an opportunity to say words which I never thought I would hear myself say: I agree with virtually everything that the noble Lord, Lord McNally, said this evening.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (13 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: I am particularly pleased that the noble Lord mentioned Prince Metternich, who of course was no great fan of liberal democracy. I understand that he once said that the best way to protect the freedom of the press was for nothing whatever to be published over the course of the next five years. That may indeed be the case. I say to the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, that in Committee last week we...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (13 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I will be as brief as I possibly can in moving this amendment and speaking to the group, which relates to paragraph 24 of Schedule 2 to the Bill, in Part 5, and the exemptions for journalistic, academic, literary and artistic purposes. I declare my interest as director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests. However, I underline that these...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I declare an interest in this group of amendments as executive director of Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. When I saw, not with a great deal of surprise, that this group of interlocking amendments relating to press regulation had been tabled—perhaps their second or third outing in as many years—I was reminded fleetingly of...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, it is not a question of meeting the requirements of the Press Recognition Panel. It is my belief that IPSO probably would meet the requirements. It is a fundamental belief that self-regulation cannot be self-regulation if it is approved by a state-run body. The Press Recognition Panel was set up by royal charter, which is a method of state regulation in all but name, and the press...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, the Press Recognition Panel was set up by royal charter, underpinned by legislation in this House, legislation to which I was fundamentally opposed. The Press Recognition Panel was set up—I forget the exact figure—with £3 million of taxpayers’ money. It is a state-run body. To have a state-run body which in some way recognising a system of self-regulation negates the whole...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I am going to give way to judicial friends who are probably waiting to speak and will be able to deal with the question about the courts better than I can.

Written Answers — Home Office: Madeleine McCann (1 Nov 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: To ask Her Majesty's Government when funding for Operation Grange, investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, is due to end.

Battle of Passchendaele - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that comprehensive response. Even by the high standards of this House, as the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, said, this has been an exceptional debate which has probed so many aspects of the dreadful Battle of Passchendaele in a series of incredibly thoughtful, poignant and moving contributions. I am most grateful to all noble Lords who took part. One of the...
