Previous Business – Lords: Grand Committee (20 Jan 2022)

Role played by social media in the deaths of UK children, including by suicide, self-harm and murder – Baroness Kidron. Short debate; 1:00 pm

Freedom of Speech - Motion to Take Note (10 Dec 2021)

Baroness Kidron: My Lords, as a young child I had an operation that meant I was unable to speak for a year. I arrived at secondary school, aged 11, complete with a horn to attract attention, like Harpo Marx, and attached to my waist a pen and paper on which I could ask or answer questions. It was embarrassing, alienating and occasionally hilarious, but from my silence I noticed who spoke, who listened and who...

Age Assurance (Minimum Standards) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I hope that noble Lords will forgive me. I had a very generous speech thanking them individually for all their contributions—and, indeed, they were wonderful—but I would like to cut to the chase and say that this is not good enough. The time has run out. I reserve my thanks for one group: the children from Westminster Academy. I thank them for looking at the Bill and for giving a more...

Age Assurance (Minimum Standards) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Baroness Kidron: My Lords, I start by acknowledging the many colleagues who were unable to speak today but who wrote to offer their support and I thank those who are present. I know that many noble Lords have made a considerable effort to be here and I look forward to their contributions. In a moment, I will set out the Age Assurance (Minimum Standards) Bill, what it does and why it is so urgently needed, but...

Children’s Rights: Digital Environment - Question (1 Jul 2021)

Baroness Kidron: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they plan to take in response to General Comment No. 25 (2021) on children’s rights in relation to the digital environment adopted by the United Nation’s Committee on the Rights of the Child on 2 March.

Children’s Rights: Digital Environment - Question (1 Jul 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I thank the Minister for her response and declare my interest, particularly as chair of 5Rights and its role as consultant to the Committee on the Rights of the Child in drafting the general comment. As the Minister said, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its associated protocols provide the international benchmark for all government action regarding children, and the UK has an...

Public Service Broadcasting (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (27 May 2021)

Baroness Kidron: My Lords, in the 1980s, while both my gender and geography were against me, I was able to begin my directing career at Channel 4 and subsequently build it at the BBC. Since that time, I have worked across the creative industries from Hollywood studios and streamers to independents and PSBs. With that in mind, I draw the attention of the House to my interests on the register in relation to the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 May 2021)

Baroness Kidron: My Lords, I draw the attention of the House to my interests, particularly as chair of 5Rights Foundation and deputy chair of the APPG on Digital Regulation and Responsibility. Like others, I welcome the long anticipated online safety Bill and the provisions it will make for children. The change in the Bill’s name from “online harms” to “online safety” reflects the journey the Bill...

Data Protection Act 2018: Children - Question (4 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kidron: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to their call for views and evidence for the Review of Representative Action Provisions, Section 189 Data Protection Act 2018, published on 27 August 2020, what plans they have to reflect the views of the children consulted as part of the Review in changes to the Data Protection Act 2018.

Data Protection Act 2018: Children - Question (4 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I thank the noble Baroness for her response. However, the other thing that children said in the Government’s own review was that 96% of them thought that charities should be able to represent them—and that they had a “lack of support” and “had not heard of the ICO.” As the noble Baroness said, they also lacked awareness of how companies such as advertisers might use their personal...

Data Protection Act 2018: Children - Question (4 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I beg your pardon. Is it the Government’s position to adopt protections for children and then block meaningful routes of redress?

Video-sharing Platforms: BBFC Ratings - Question (4 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I refer the House to my interests on the register. Age rating is just one of the many tools needed to build the digital world that children deserve, but it is hugely important to children and families that are looking to curate an age-appropriate experience. Is the Minister aware that Apple and Google app stores routinely advertise apps and games as suitable for four-plus and nine-plus for...

Australia: News Media and Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code - Question (25 Feb 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I welcome the Australian Government’s action in creating a mechanism to distribute the value of news media more fairly. I hope that, when we do similarly, we will be able to ensure that it benefits the entire news ecosystem, not only parts of it. Deeply worrying was the spectre of the Australian Government revising their domestic legislation as a result of a series of phone calls with Mark...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendment: Motion A (9 Feb 2021)

Baroness Kidron: My Lords, I wish to speak to Motion D, the government amendment in lieu of Lords Amendment 4. I, too, thank the Minister for her time and the care that she showed when we met. I wish also to recognise Stella Creasy MP, who has done so much to advance this issue. I warmly welcome the enhanced protections, most particularly on the definition of exceptional circumstances. Experts have made clear...

Trade Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (2 Feb 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I asked to put a question because I created absolute confusion earlier by not saying whether I was going to divide the House; in this virtual world, I have been inundated with texts and emails. So I just want to say that I intended to ask the Minister to make his assurances and then step back from my amendment. I choose to fully believe him and, in doing so, I hope that we will see a result...

Trade Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (2 Feb 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I rise to speak to Motion F1 in my name and to speak in support of Amendment 6B. I refer the House to my interests, particularly as founder and chair of the 5Rights Foundation. I noted the Minister’s words at the outset, and I will return to them. But for the purposes of the House and those who might be drafting such an amendment, I want to set out my reasons for the amendment that we have...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 12 (13 Jan 2021)

Baroness Kidron: I speak to Amendment 24 in my name and that of the noble Lords, Lord Young of Cookham and Lord Kennedy of Southwark, and the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee. This sets out the safeguards and protections that should exist if we ask a child to commit a crime as a covert human intelligence source. I pay tribute to the work that many have done on this issue, including the noble Lords who support...

Trade Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 23 (6 Jan 2021)

Baroness Kidron: Well, I am somewhat surprised. I want to say at the outset that I do not doubt the passion of the Minister himself for protecting children, just as he does not doubt my passion. But this is not about passion; it is about insurance. I am surprised that, even though he set out at great length the online harms legislation—and I indeed agree with him that that is where we will ensure that all...
