Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Second Reading (27 Jul 2020)

Lord Lennie: My Lords, this is a welcome Bill and the noble Lord, Lord True, is to be congratulated on moving its Second Reading. It is certainly welcome compared with that which the Tory-led coalition Government proposed—but all things are relative. Then, the Tory Government proposed a reduction to 600 MPs while their coalition partner, the Liberal Democrats, had suggested in their 2010 manifesto that...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 4 (23 Jun 2020)

Lord Lennie: My Lords, straight off the bat, I too welcome the Government’s movement on this specific part of this necessary Bill. There will be a sense of relief for direct benefit pension funds and their trustees, the Pension Protection Fund and the regulator. As has been said, all will now have rights of access to information about the intentions of companies and to voice their opinions about the...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 51 (16 Jun 2020)

Lord Lennie: I thank my noble friends Lord Hendy, Lord Hain and Lord Monks for bringing forward their amendments on this part of the Bill. Given the constraints on time, I ask the Minister whether the Government intend to bring forward further legislation on this matter. Does this have to be dealt with now, or can it wait for further legislation?

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 20 (16 Jun 2020)

Lord Lennie: My Lords, I had rather thought that the Minister would speak at the beginning of this debate, as that might have obviated some of the discussion that we have had to have; he has not yet fulfilled what the Report stage amendments will be, based on the letter that he produced last night. There seem to be shared concerns among all speakers about the relative position of debt—finance debt,...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Second Reading (9 Jun 2020)

Lord Lennie: My Lords, I begin by thanking everybody who has spoken in this important debate today, and the Minister for the briefings, meetings and information that he has provided on the Bill—it has been very helpful. It has been good to hear so many contributions concentrate on the vital matter of how the Government can produce a framework to support businesses and give them the best fighting chance...

Smart Meters - Question (10 Feb 2020)

Lord Lennie: The Minister’s predecessor, the noble Lord, Lord Henley, wrote to me about this in July 2019. He said that the 13 largest energy suppliers had submitted plans to cover the rollout for 2019-20 and that, “underpinned by a strong evidence base, plans are now in place and define binding milestones that those suppliers will be held to account against in 2019 and 2020.” Just 18 months since...

Nuclear Power: Emissions - Question (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Lennie: How will the Government ensure that any new offshore wind capacity during the 2020s will not simply replace retiring nuclear plants rather than push carbon-emitting gas power plants off the grid?

Electricity Supplier Obligations (Excluded Electricity) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (23 Oct 2019)

Lord Lennie: The contracts for difference scheme demands that certain high-energy industries pay what is in effect a tax to fund a levy to help subsidise and encourage the generation and production of renewable electricity. Within the scheme, energy-intensive industries, or EIIs, can apply for an exemption from having to pay. This SI adds flour milling to the list of those industries eligible to apply for...

Smart Meters - Question (8 Jul 2019)

Lord Lennie: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the roll-out of smart meters.

Smart Meters - Question (8 Jul 2019)

Lord Lennie: I thank the Minister for that Answer—just the 50 million or so short of target. Given the promised financial benefits to hard- pressed customers and the obvious global advantages of moving to a low-carbon economy associated with SMETS 2, why do the Government persist in leaving the implementation of this policy to the energy suppliers? Can the Minister state clearly why Ofgem rejected...

Future of Seaside Towns - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Lennie: I begin by adding my congratulations to my “roomie”, my noble friend Lord Bassam, and his committee members on producing a fine, comprehensive and compelling report. The coverage it has received is due testament to its quality, and the Government’s response has shown consideration but a certain lack of commitment in addressing the proposals that it raises. There is much to be done in...

Environment and Climate Emergency - Question (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Lennie: My Lords, I will give the Minister a second chance—as he knows, everyone deserves a second chance—to answer the question that was not answered in last Wednesday’s debate. Why will international aviation and shipping not be included in the Government’s climate change emissions legislation?

Trade in Torture etc. Goods (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Lennie: The concern raised is such a fundamental matter—to remove something from the list is to enable it to be exported—that it has to come through the positive procedure. It has to be positively endorsed by both Houses rather than be slipped through—I am not suggesting that that would happen—by the Secretary of State’s action.
