Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Elections: Disinformation (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty's Government, given the “real danger that hostile actors use online disinformation to undermine” the UK’s “democratic values and principles” outlined in their Online Harms White Paper, published in April 2019, what steps they plan to take to empower the proposed independent regulator to require online platforms to take down such material that may be perceived to...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Jan 2020)

Lord Cromwell: There appears to be a certain amount of confusion and a lot of people are gesturing to show that they have a plastic card in their hand. I think we have plastic driving licences; we have not done away with them.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Jan 2020)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, there seems to be a slight pantomime element to this. Many from the3million say, “We need physical proof”; the Government simply reply, “No you don’t”, and so it goes round and round. We are going to have to rebuild relationships with many of these people, who have been bruised by the lack of clarity, by being referred to as “bargaining chips” and by other...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Cromwell: I also add my support to this pair of amendments. Others have said so many of the right things about them so I will not detain the House by repeating them. I had the honour of serving on the EU Justice Sub-Committee with at least two of the previous speakers. Witness after witness raised with us the issues that others have already spoken about, but I promised not to repeat them so I will not....

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (7 Sep 2018)

Lord Cromwell: Whatever one’s view of the amendment, and of the view of the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, of an elected Chamber, I think he indicated in his opening remark that this is a frivolous amendment. Can we not just knock it on the head?

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Third Reading (27 Jun 2018)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, I invite the Minister to join me in wishing the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope of Craighead, a very happy birthday today. That pleasurable duty discharged, I have to say that I disagree with his amendment. I found very helpful his explanation of the constraints that surround it; none the less, the purpose of the clause, as the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay, alluded to, is...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Cromwell: Was the noble Lord speaking to Amendment 77 or to Amendment 74?

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (15 May 2018)

Lord Cromwell: In that case, I shall speak in support of Amendment 77 and cover Amendments 82A, 85A and 90A, which are tabled in my name as probing amendments. I do not want to make a Second Reading speech, but will open with three points. The first is on the context of the amendments in my name, which is that we are talking about a one-off payment. It has to last the recipient the rest of their days, which...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Second Reading (24 Apr 2018)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, it is a tradition in this House to say what a privilege it is to follow the previous speaker. As the 15th speaker in this debate, I have to say that I have enjoyed and learned from all 14 speeches so far. It has been a real privilege to listen to this debate because it reflects the House of Lords at its best: terrifyingly well qualified; taking a roughly hewn Bill and making it even...

Written Answers — Treasury: Individual Savings Accounts (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to address the decline in use of the cash Individual Savings Account; and how investment in 2016–17 compared to 2015–16.

Written Answers — Treasury: Individual Savings Accounts (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the recommendations of the cross-party Association of Accounting Technicians Individual Savings Account Working Group, that (1) the ISA name should be removed from the Help to Buy scheme, and (2) the Lifetime ISA should be closed to new entrants, and (3) all remaining ISAs should be folded into a single "Everything ISA".

Written Answers — Treasury: Individual Savings Accounts (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have given consideration to scrapping the annual ISA savings limit in favour of a £1 million lifetime contributions limit, as proposed by the cross-party Association of Accounting Technicians Individual Savings Account Working Group; and if not, why not.

Written Answers — Treasury: Individual Savings Accounts (20 Mar 2018)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken, or plan to take, to create an ISA dashboard, based on the same principles as the Pensions Dashboard project.

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2018)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, it is a particular pleasure to follow the words of the noble Lord, Lord Desai, although I have to say that his speech reminded me of that old aphorism that a pessimist says things could not be worse, but an optimist assures you they can. It is also a joy to take part in a debate that does not have reference to Brexit, although I noticed that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace,...

Brexit: Justice for Families, Individuals and Businesses (EU Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, if the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, professed himself humbled by the speakers who had gone before and the Minister who is going to respond, imagine how we non-lawyers feel following him. It was a great honour to be on the committee for the production of this report. In the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy, we have someone who blends, in equal large measure, charm, wisdom and utter...

House of Lords: Lord Speaker’s Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (19 Dec 2017)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, when I saw so many noble Lords had put their names down to speak in this debate—almost an embarrassingly large number—I wondered whether I should add mine. Having listened to the noble Baroness, Lady Young of Scone, give the statistics on the age of the House, I learned that I am also a giddy youth in this place, which was described as a gathering of elders by the noble and...

Whistleblowers - Question (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Cromwell: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the effectiveness of the processes in place to enable whistleblowers to come forward without adverse personal consequences.

Whistleblowers - Question (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Cromwell: I thank the Minister for his reply. As he knows, in putting down the Question I had in mind a specific example. The whistleblower concerned, who is from the UK banking sector, asked me in due course not to name them for fear of persecution. Will the Minister agree to meet me and the organisation Whistleblowers UK to review the shocking evidence that, far from being respected for their...

Financial Services: Regulation - Question (6 Sep 2017)

Lord Cromwell: My Lords, does the Minister agree that, at a time when many of our major financial institutions are embroiled in scandals over how they have treated their customers, this is not the time for deregulation but for more effective regulation and, in particular, the use of more personal accountability for malefactors?
