Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Third Reading (27 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I simply express my gratitude to the Minister and his team for accepting the amendment and their co-operation throughout the passage of the Bill. Amendment 6 agreed. A privilege amendment was made.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Third Reading (27 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, a key focus of our discussions of Part 2 has been to reduce the time taken to reach the conclusion of the first review of the PIDR. In Committee, the Minister encouraged more discussion about how to do that, and on Report the Government accepted amendments that brought forward very substantially the first determination. We were very grateful for that and for their very constructive...

Investment Banks: Client Protection - Question (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: Can the Minister say what steps are required to be taken to advise clients of the risks to their money held in client accounts in the event of failure or administration?

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (Continued) (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I am very grateful to the Minister for her response, particularly to Amendment 65 and the consequential and preparatory amendments. I am also grateful for her comments about Amendment 51 and the allied amendments. I think it is generally agreed, as she said, that 90 days is too long. Perhaps 25 days is not quite right; perhaps we need a Goldilocks solution. I would be very happy, as I am sure...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (Continued) (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I thank the Minister very much. That is very helpful—and having said that, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 51 withdrawn. Amendment 52 not moved.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (Continued) (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, all the amendments in this group are aimed at significantly bringing forward the date of the first review of the discount rate. They are all in my name and those of my noble friend Lord Marks and the noble Earl, Lord Kinnoull, and I am very grateful for their support. I am also extremely grateful to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Keen of Elie, and to his officials for the...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I thank the Minister for her reply about cold calling. It is a pity because, as I said in moving Amendment 32, there is a widespread feeling that things are not working. I hesitated to say this in the previous debate but I got three calls over the weekend—I thought it might be more appropriate to mention that now rather than earlier. There is a common unease, as my quoting the report from...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, Amendment 46 is in my name and those of my noble friend Lord Marks, the noble Earl, Lord Kinnoull, and the noble Lord, Lord Beecham. I am grateful to them all for their support. The amendment addresses the question of pass-through. How much of the savings generated for insurance companies by whiplash reforms would in fact be passed on to motorists, in the form of reduced premiums?...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, I am very grateful for the Minister’s answer and encouraged by it, too. I take the points about being careful on competition law and the period over which we assess the insurance companies’ return to the people they insure. I will follow with interest the progress of a government amendment as it goes through the House of Commons. Having said that, I beg leave to withdraw the...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, Amendments 32 and 39 return to the issue of cold calling, the problems of which we have debated on many occasions in this House. Our latest attempts to curb the menace of cold calling became law with the passing of the Financial Guidance and Claims Act, but, despite frequent debates and new laws, there remains significant uncertainty as to whether our current set of regulations is...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, I will speak briefly in support of Amendment 18, in the name of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, and, as a consequence, I will not be speaking to my Amendments 9, 10 and 17. As this Bill has progressed, I have repeatedly pointed out that the tariff levels proposed by the Government lack any substantive justification. It remains entirely unclear why these specific amounts...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I simply observe that I do not think lawyers have an exclusive right to exercise and run conflicting arguments.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: The Minister talks about the consultation and the preferences expressed there. As I think I mentioned at Second Reading, there was no majority in favour of the Lord Chancellor being involved. There was a majority for other methods, not the Lord Chancellor.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I have in this group Amendments 74, 87 and 88. Amendment 74 is a probing amendment. It provides the Committee with an opportunity to debate the value of the Lord Chancellor having a decisive role in determining the PIDR. As things stand, that is what he or she has—a decisive role. It is true that the Bill will create an expert panel to advise him and that it sets out the assumptions on...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, we have Amendments 60, 64, 67, 68 and 71 in this group. They all have the same purpose. All are aimed at bringing forward the date of the first review of the PIDR and I want to thank the MDDUS for its help in drafting. Amendments 60, 64, 67 and 68 each bring forward, in the appropriate place in the Bill, the start date for the first review of the PIDR to 30 days from commencement,...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, Amendment 92 in this group would require the Lord Chancellor to carry out a review of the impact of any new rate on the extent of the use of PPOs and to lay this report before Parliament. Our amendment has the same general purpose as Amendment 55 and as other amendments in this group. The noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, has already spoken eloquently to Amendment 55 so I can be very brief....

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (10 May 2018)

Lord Sharkey: Talking about vulnerable road users, I was reading Tuesday’s edition of Insurance Times, and the opening sentence was: “Justice minister Lord Keen makes the first concession on Civil Liability Bill ahead of it entering the committee stage in the House of Lords”. It went on to say: “Lord Keen sent a letter to peers this morning, and in it, he made his first real concession regarding...
