Lucy Frazer: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, whether the data collected by the Government for use in the LMI for All programme includes the (a) school attended, (b) A-levels studied, (c) subject taken at university, (d) name of the university, (e) apprenticeship taken, where appropriate, (f) employment subject area, (g) salary earned and (h) name of employer for the...
Lucy Frazer: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of the collection and use of LMI for All data.
Lucy Frazer: I am sorry to backtrack slightly, but I have just looked up the provision relating to “economic well-being”, which is fairly qualified. Clause 18(2) ties economic well-being to “the interests of national security”. However, it also states that a warrant will be necessary “in the interests of the economic well-being of the United Kingdom so far as those interests are also relevant to...
Lucy Frazer: If the hon. and learned Lady thinks that international comparisons are important, does she agree that the judicial authorisation procedure proposed by the Home Secretary goes further than in other European examples, such as Germany, the Netherlands and France?
Lucy Frazer: Every day we compromise our right to privacy. Consciously or not, we are increasingly willing to share aspects of our everyday life with others. I will take just three examples. The first is Google. Google’s online terms of service expressly state that it analyses content, including emails, to provide personally relevant product features. Secondly, by having location services enabled on our...
Lucy Frazer: Does my hon. Friend accept that businesses are already doing a great deal in this area? In my constituency, Marshall does a great job of inspiring young people to go into engineering and aerospace, and yesterday I met representatives of TWI, a company just outside my constituency, which is doing the same. However, businesses need to do more and they need to do it at an early stage if they are...
Lucy Frazer: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what support the Government is providing to enable developing countries to harness mobile phone technology.
Lucy Frazer: The hon. Gentleman started by saying that we needed some straight talking. In order to be fiscally credible, one needs to have concrete figures. The Chancellor has said in his Budget that he will borrow £1 in every £14 in 2016-17. Will the shadow Chancellor tell us what his borrowing figure will be?
Lucy Frazer: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
Lucy Frazer: The hon. Gentleman mentioned that productivity was down for domestic reasons, not for international reasons. Can he therefore explain to me why the Congressional Budget Office in the US has reduced its forecast for potential productivity growth by 8.9 percentage points, which is lower than that for this country?
Lucy Frazer: One of the best ways to improve the life chances of those who are either able-bodied or disabled is to invest in education. Does the Minister agree that the £1.6 billion investment set out in the Budget will help the next generation to get the best start in life?
Lucy Frazer: It is often said that the EU is undemocratic and that laws are imposed on us. Is not the decision that the Prime Minister reports today on VAT an example of how Britain can mould and shape those rules and regulations?
Lucy Frazer: The events yesterday underlined the fact that this is an international threat that requires an international response. We are making every effort to strengthen our domestic capability in the Investigatory Powers Bill. Will the Home Secretary assure the House that, in talking to international partners, she will ensure that the Bill can be practically and swiftly enforced elsewhere?
Lucy Frazer: David Anderson was my pupil master when I was a barrister.
Lucy Frazer: I would like to pick up on something that you said in your evidence was about internet connection records. I would just like to ask you first of all, do you respect the work of David Anderson?
Lucy Frazer: Have you had the opportunity to read his report?
Lucy Frazer: Are you familiar with paragraph 7.51 where he talks about Operation Notarise?
Lucy Frazer: Are you familiar with Operation Notarise?
Lucy Frazer: In that operation 600 suspected paedophiles were arrested, and 92% of the communications data requested proved helpful in tracking down suspects. That what he says in the report. Do you accept therefore that he has found evidence that the ICRs are helpful?
Lucy Frazer: I am just reading from the report, and that is what it says. It gives the figure of 92% of communications data and says the questions provided were helpful.
