Lung Health - Question (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare my interest as in the register. Does my noble friend agree that air quality is vital for lung health and will she comment on the distressing fact that lung diseases are strongly correlated with poverty, and that air quality is worst in poor areas?

Disabled People - Motion to Take Note (9 May 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I will quickly thank all noble Lords for taking part and for taking a few seconds to pay undeserved compliments, for which I am very grateful. I think that, when the noble Baroness, Lady Thomas, called for more influential disabled people, she underestimated her own influence. I thank everybody for putting aside other problems to talk about the future. I will have to look out for my...

Disabled People - Motion to Take Note (9 May 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare my interests as noted in the register, particularly my interests in accessible transport, housing and charities. The lives of disabled people are often challenging. We rightly work hard to try to meet those challenges, and many disabled people say that we do not work hard enough. But the main reason I called for this debate today was to focus on the positives. Over the...

Residential Construction and Housing Supply - Motion to Take Note (24 Apr 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first declare my interests, as noted in the register, as a house developer with sites in Bicester, Scotland and Sussex. I am also a trustee of a charity for the education of deaf children and of other charities involved with disabilities. Modern methods of construction, as considered in our excellent Science and Technology Committee report last year, should include making houses...

Economy: Purchasing Managers’ Index - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Borwick: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the Purchasing Managers’ Index figure of 55.1 for the United Kingdom published on 1 April and the comparative performance in Germany.

Economy: Purchasing Managers’ Index - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, declaring my interests in the register as a manufacturer, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper.

Economy: Purchasing Managers’ Index - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Borwick: I thank my noble friend for his Answer and agree that many small companies are doing very well indeed. The PMI, which is a forward-looking index, backs up the excellent GDP and Treasury figures to suggest that the UK economy is thriving. There are always economists who practise the dismal science and who will predict doom and search for a dark cloud wherever they find a silver lining. Does my...

Honda in Swindon - Statement (19 Feb 2019)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare my interests on the register as a manufacturer of carbon fibre parts for the automotive industry. Does the Minister welcome the comments on “The World at One” today from His Excellency the Japanese ambassador, who said that—while the closure of the Honda factory is not about Brexit—Japan looks forward to an even more liberal and ambitious free trade agreement with...

Off-site Manufacture for Construction (Science and Technology Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (12 Dec 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first declare an interest, as noted in the register: I am a property developer with several ongoing housebuilding projects. I welcome the report from the Science and Technology Committee. Off-site manufacturing is likely to be more economic, efficient, safe and automatable than traditional ways of building houses. Indeed, it ought to be the obvious thing to do. So I compliment the...

Schools: Music Education - Motion to Take Note (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, we are all different; what a great thing that is. Some children have an aptitude for music and some are very enthusiastic, but others are not. Beyond the very basics we require in the education system, it is important that we offer students the choice to learn music. However, the more a curriculum or subject is forced on some students, the more they may grow to resent it, meaning...

Cyber Threats - Motion to Take Note (18 Oct 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, it seems to me that cyber threats fall into two categories, which are separated by complexity: first, the highly sophisticated attacks, often those sponsored by foreign states; and, secondly, the simpler, basic attacks, often by individuals or small groups of hackers. No doubt we will hear that the large-scale, often global attacks are well fought off by our people at GCHQ, but it...

Disabled People - Motion to Take Note (28 Jun 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, first, I declare an interest in this debate, as the father of a son with learning disabilities and a trustee of a charity helping deaf children to learn in mainstream schools. I, too, pay tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Thomas, for securing this debate and for her tireless work in this area. The prize named in her honour, sponsored by Bespoke Hotels, has done much to encourage...

Branded Health Service Medicines (Costs) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (20 Jun 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare an interest in this debate, as I am a patron of both the British Thyroid Foundation and the Thyroid Trust. I have heard it said that, somewhere in the Lords, there is always an expert on any subject raised; all I can claim is personal experience. I have suffered from Graves’ disease, which results in an overactive thyroid gland. Once it has had one episode, the thyroid...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 65. It was painfully obvious when dedicated spaces were introduced for disabled drivers that those spaces should be nearest to the supermarket. Yet, unfortunately, this had to be spelt out in regulation. Sometimes, things that are blindingly obvious to noble Lords escape the attention of other people. I fear that the same may be true of electric rapid...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I shall put Amendment 54 into context by mentioning the reasons for this Bill. The first half is to get Great Britain into the front row of one of the most exciting brand-new industries in the world, although the department seems determined to make sure that the Bill addresses insurance only. However, this half, on charging points, is trying to help solve one of the serious problems...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: I thank the noble Baroness for that. I was told that there were two charging points at the other end but not rapid charging points.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: The distinction between rapid and fast may be in the eye of the tortoise but is terribly important. There is a lot of difference between charging points and rapid charging points. The table distributed by that doughty fighter for clean air, Stephanie Jarvis of TfL, shows that the number of rapid chargers installed on borough highways in London, “as part of TfL network”—whatever that...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (continued) (9 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 23 withdrawn. Amendments 24 and 25 not moved. Clause 4 agreed.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (continued) (9 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, Amendment 27 is a probing amendment, triggered when I first read this Bill, which happened at about the same time as the very first fatal accident in America from a Tesla vehicle, when it was it was speculated in the press that Tesla would not release the data from the vehicle because it had proprietary value to Tesla. In fact, as I understand it, Tesla released the data in due...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (continued) (9 May 2018)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I think I rather agree with the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, about Amendment 28, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, being better than my Amendment 23. It is better because the point about manufacturers going bust had not occurred to me—so putting it into the passive is a much better way of doing it. Amendment 25 seems to be approaching a sort of strict liability basis, with...
