Business of the House - Motion to Agree (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend the Lord Privy Seal, I beg to move the Motion standing in her name on the Order Paper. This Motion will allow the House to debate the three statutory instruments relating to the new local Covid-19 alert levels tomorrow. The debate on them is taking place in the House of Commons today.

Business of the House - Motion to Agree (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I am always delighted to answer questions from the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, either in or out of the Chamber; I have done it for many hours in the past and, no doubt, I will continue to do so again in future. As far as the questions from the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, are concerned, first, the Leader of the House is off to a Cabinet committee, which is why I am here on her behalf. I...

Housing: Rent, Evictions and Covid-19 - Question (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I remind the House that the Procedure Committee has recommended that supplementaries should not last longer than 30 seconds. During the last Question there were examples of questions by Members from nearly all parties and groups that went on for longer than that. It would be of benefit to all noble Lords if Members restricted their supplementaries to 30 seconds.

Trade Bill - Order of Commitment (12 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, the two Motions standing in my name give effect to a decision taken last week to move the Trade Bill into the Chamber tomorrow and on Thursday for the remainder of its Committee stage. As a result, the Social Security (Up-rating of Benefits) Bill’s Second Reading debate will need to move into Grand Committee tomorrow. This will mean that more time can be spent on the Trade Bill,...

Trade Bill - Order of Commitment (12 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I am grateful to noble Lords for their questions and points. They are important. First, I am grateful for the support for the Motion that is being debated. I do slightly question the relevance of the noble Baroness’s points. However, she was very kind and gave me warning that she would make them, so I feel it would be churlish to go on too much about that and I will reply to her....

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (5 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I am glad to say that the technical issues have been resolved.

We will have Oral Questions and the PNQ around 3 pm and then, we hope, continue with the Bill.

Business of the House - Timing of Debates (5 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, the plan is to adjourn now, and then have the deferred Divisions which we were all expecting at 2.15 pm. I propose that the Oral Questions and Private Notice Question be postponed until after the Report stage of the immigration Bill; I do not mean until after it is completed but that at a certain convenient moment we will adjourn the immigration Bill, have Oral Questions and the PNQ...

Business of the House - Timing of Debates (5 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: No, I cannot, as I do not know how long the problem will take to fix. Obviously, if it is not fixed after the deferred Divisions are over, we will not be able to continue with the immigration Bill since we need the virtual participants to be able to hear. I will come back to your Lordships once I have been told the situation in respect of the technical difficulties. I hope that makes sense.

Business of the House - Timing of Debates (5 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: That is a good idea. I will make sure that noble Lords have some warning of when Oral Questions will be. I shall certainly let Members know the timing as soon as possible. I commit to coming back to the House as soon as I know and, if necessary, making a statement about the timings of business, even if that means temporarily interrupting the business at hand. Basically, I will let noble Lords...

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (5 Oct 2020)

Agriculture Bill - Third Reading (1 Oct 2020)

Clause 17: Continuing EU programmes: power to provide financial assistance

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (1 Oct 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, with the leave of the House, I should like to make a brief Statement about what happened yesterday. As noble Lords will have seen, yesterday we experienced serious technical difficulties with the remote voting system during our consideration of the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill. The result of that difficulty was that three Divisions, on...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (30 Sep 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I apologise for the technical hitch; it is the first time that the voting system has let us down. I am afraid that it is not going to be fixed today. We have talked to the clerks and the usual channels, who have shown great flexibility, and I think noble Lords will be amazed at the speed at which we are altering procedures. We intend to carry on with the debate outlined in today’s...

Covid-19: Creative Industries - Question (22 Sep 2020)

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises: Public Procurement Contracts - Question (7 Sep 2020)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I am afraid the noble Baroness, Lady Altmann, is completely inaudible, but I suspect the Minister might have an idea of what she is trying to say.
