Lord Strathcarron: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Evans of Rainow on 11 January (HL Deb col 98), what assessment they have made of whether it is appropriate to describe COVID-19 vaccinations as “very safe” given that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency's Blue Guide, says that "advertising which states or implies that a product is 'safe' is unacceptable";...

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Lord Strathcarron: My Lords, there are many areas of concern with the Bill, as we have heard, but I would like to focus on what it means to parents and children, and to freedom of speech and religion.

Lord Strathcarron: My Lords, the subject of noise pollution is not addressed in the Bill as it stands. Rather than repeat the excellent points made by my noble friends Lady Stowell and Lord Goschen, I just point out that pedicabs are equipped with only the tinniest of tannoys that blare out indecipherable musical content, which is a real irritant to residents, passers-by and, I would have thought, passengers....

Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 4 (25 Apr 2023)

Lord Strathcarron: I will speak in support of my noble friend Lord Moylan and Amendment 9. I declare an interest as an author and publisher.
