European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I declare my interest as chair of the Hansard Society, whose work on delegated legislation will be familiar to many noble Lords. I have three amendments in this group, to which the noble Lords, Lord Lisvane, Lord Norton, and Lord Lexden, my noble friend Lord Tyler and the noble Baroness, Lady Jay, have variously added their names, and I am very grateful for their support. Amendment 237A is...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: On the urgent procedures, why in the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill is there a 60-day period, whereas for SIs generated urgently by this Bill there is a 28-day period? The Minister has talked about the necessity for speed. I do not understand why one Bill has 60 days and the other has 28.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: Yes, I feel able to withdraw my amendment, but want to make one comment before I do so. The Minister has pointed out that the proposal for a reconsideration period marks a major change. She is quite right about that, because the circumstances seem to require exactly that change. I think that we will come to discuss this matter again, but, in the meantime, I beg leave to withdraw the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: Perhaps I can help on the point about whether the Commons can reconsider something that it has not actually considered. I hate to have to refer to the Strathclyde report again, given what has been said, but there is a suggestion in the report of exactly how that is taken account of. The two committees could easily agree a sequence for consideration so that it was already possible for the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the Hansard Society, whose work on delegated legislation will be known to many noble Lords. I will be brief in dealing with what is essentially a simple procedural proposal. The issue is delegated legislation. This has already been the focus of a lot of debate, much of which has consisted of expressions of anxiety about the likely number of...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: As I listened to the noble Lord, I could not help thinking that we were talking entirely at cross purposes. The House has yet to decide on exactly what method of scrutiny we shall use and how we will amend existing methods—if we do at all—when we consider this Bill. That is not the issue for this evening; that is for Monday’s discussions. This amendment simply says that whatever we...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Jolly has added her name to this amendment, but unfortunately she cannot be in her place today. She has asked me to speak in her stead, and I am delighted to do that. I declare an interest as chair of the Association of Medical Research Charities and of the Specialised Healthcare Alliance, which campaigns on behalf of people with rare diseases. Both these...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (7 Mar 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My noble friend Lord Tyler has added his name to Amendments 71, 116, 253 and 257. Unfortunately, he is unwell and unable to be in his place today. He has, however, advised me —extensively—to rely heavily in my remarks on the report of the DPRRC published on 1 February. As I am sure that Members will know, the report was highly critical of this Bill. It noted that: “The Bill confers on...

Brexit and the Labour Market (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (8 Feb 2018)

There were three areas of conclusions and recommendations in the report: the first was about net migration statistics; the second was about adapting the UK labour market; and the third was about the net migration...

Lord Sharkey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what progress they have made in reducing (1) the amount set aside in NHS budgets for clinical negligence claims, and (2) the annual level of payment for such claims.

NHS: Clinical Negligence - Question (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Sharkey: I thank the Minister for that answer. Last year, the NHS paid out £1.7 billion in settlements for negligence claims—a 15% increase on the year before. A substantial part of that enormous amount was intended for the provision of private sector care. That is because Section 2(4) of the Law Reform (Personal Injuries) Act 1948 requires claims to be calculated on the basis of private...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the Hansard Society, whose briefing has been very helpful in considering the Bill, as has the excellent report from the Constitution Committee. I very much look forward to seeing the imminent report of the DPRR Committee later this week. The Bill represents a massive transfer of authority away from Parliament to the Executive, and such a transfer...
