Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what extra powers they intend to provide to GCHQ under a Communications Data Bill to collect and store internet communications over and above those powers already in use in order to fill the capability gap identified by Home Office witnesses to the Joint Committee which scrutinised the draft Communications Data Bill.

Government Communications Headquarters — Statement (10 Jun 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I apologise for arriving during the reading of this Statement but, in my defence, I was late because I was listening to it from the horse’s mouth, from the Foreign Secretary in another place. In the USA, it would seem that politicians have been asleep at the wheel while their security and intelligence services have helped themselves to anyone’s private data without any...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 Feb 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank the noble Viscount for giving way. That was not my question. My question was: which of the removed rights is going to increase the motivation of the employees and therefore improve the performance of the business?

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 Feb 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I am sorry to keep jumping up and down, but I still have not heard from the Minister how the withdrawal of all or any of the rights will improve the performance of any business.

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 Feb 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, when I spoke to the first group of amendments I declared my interests as an entrepreneur. I forgot also to declare that in a former life I used to play cricket with Mr Adrian Beecroft, who is a very charming man and a very fine opening bat and cover fielder. However, to my knowledge he has no personal experience of starting or running a business. It strikes me that the authors of...

Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Committee (5th Day) (6 Feb 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I declare an interest. Before I joined this House I was a serial entrepreneur. I have started many businesses from scratch. The most recent one employed 200 staff after being in business for four years. I am a big fan of giving employees a stake in the success of the business so that their goals are aligned with those of the founders. It never crossed my mind that my staff should...

Taxation: Avoidance — Question (6 Feb 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, can my noble friend tell the House whether alleged tax avoidance schemes, such as those operated by the Cup Trust, are likely to be caught by the general anti-avoidance rules when they are introduced? Can he also confirm that the general anti-avoidance rules are still scheduled to be introduced in this year's Finance Bill?

Canterbury City Council Bill — Third Reading (3 Dec 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I, too, was a member of the Select Committee that considered these Bills and I will start by thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Knight, who chaired the Select Committee with great patience and skill. Most pedlars are itinerant and often go where the business takes them, selling hats, scarves, other items of clothing, key rings and balloons. They are true entrepreneurs, adapting their...

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Strasburger: Can the noble Lord tell the House about a single occasion when a British court has released into the public domain any information that has been detrimental to the country's national security? Can he name a single one?

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Strasburger: Then the answer to my question is no.

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords-

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, when I spoke to your Lordship's House on Second Reading, I highlighted how the injection of closed material procedures into our civil justice system would infect it with unfairness and corrupt it with secrecy. Currently, the British people hold their courts in high regard, and respect their decisions. This is partly because our judges are seen as incorruptible, independent and wise,...

Taxation: Avoidance — Question (25 Jul 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords-

Taxation: Avoidance — Question (25 Jul 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, could my noble friend tell the House what the annual cost is to the Exchequer of the tax breaks that this country gives to non-doms? Which other countries are so generous to their rich foreign residents?

Justice and Security Bill [HL]: Second Reading (Continued) (19 Jun 2012)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I am in a small but growing minority in this debate in that I am neither a distinguished lawyer nor a member, not even a former member, of the ISC. When compared with many other countries, it is remarkable how much the British people hold the courts in high regard and respect their decisions. This is partly because our judges are seen as incorruptible, independent and wise, but the...

Justice and Security Bill [HL]: Second Reading (Continued) (19 Jun 2012)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend for that. The Lord Chancellor has indulged in plenty of comforting rhetoric in an attempt to assuage the serious concerns that many people wiser than I have about this Bill. The problem is that there is a yawning chasm between his words and those in the Bill. For example, he assures us that the judge will decide whether CMP will be used but the Bill as currently worded...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Third Reading (27 Mar 2012)

Lord Strasburger: I thank the Minister for giving way. Did I hear her argue earlier that one motivation for this clause is to improve the health and safety of squatters?
