Ukraine: Tactical Nuclear Weapons - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I stand before you a rather substandard substitute for my noble friend Lady Smith, whom I am afraid has caught the dreaded Covid. In our brief conversation, which was mainly coughing and was continued by text, it was quite clear that we will miss her wisdom on this. It has become quite clear in this debate that there is some degree of consensus that Russia should not be allowed to...

UEFA Euro 2020 Final - Question (30 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister give us a little more advice about what this reaction will mean? Have the Government identified when the next football match of national significance will be? That should have happened with the Euro finals. Have we got an intelligence profile in place to give us a better chance of spotting this in future?

Qatar: FIFA World Cup - Question (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: I have just heard that a German Minister has decided that they will wear the OneLove armband when sitting next to a FIFA official while watching one of the matches. Will the Government give us an assurance that a gesture at least as important and as direct will be made if we have any representation at these matches? If not, why not?

National Women’s Sports - Question for Short Debate (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: The fact is that we have given out honours to every member in a team. If you are giving out only two, the only team you are ever going to honour is beach volleyball. Can we do something about it?

National Women’s Sports - Question for Short Debate (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to celebrate the success of national women’s sports, particularly in team sports.

National Women’s Sports - Question for Short Debate (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, it is no secret as to why I have brought this issue forward. We have had a long run of great sporting success. For someone who would sooner cheer for Scotland, unfortunately this has been mainly by English teams. We have all seen our national women’s sides enjoying a tremendous run of success in team games that were originally thought to be male dominated. The Euros were an odd...

Childhood Obesity - Question (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, would the Minister enlighten us on the position of the BOGOF—buy one, get one free—deals? Are we going to remove the disincentive to people buying extra calories in the form of an extra portion? Or will the Government encourage people not to buy the first portion?

Education Technology: Oak National Academy - Question ( 7 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I remind the House of my registered interests. Will the Government assure us that if we are using this to support teachers, it will be an example of the style of help that can be used in areas such as better education around special educational needs? If so, when will we get an idea of how this will fit in—possibly through the reaction to the review, for which we are all waiting?

Public Service Broadcasting: BBC Centenary - Motion to Take Note ( 3 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, this is one of those debates where there has been less direct confrontation and “You’re wrong and we’re right” than I was expecting, but, at the same time, there is the fundamental truth that to those of us who feel really embedded in it, public service broadcasting feels slightly under threat. I do not know why this is, other than that it has become fashionable, certainly...

Football Governance - Question ( 3 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister assure us that the Government are still in absolute agreement that there needs to be change and that it will happen soon? If that is so, can they assure us that we will not be talking about this in another year’s time, because there needs to be action now? Those assurances are required, and other sports have similar problems. I put my hand up as a rugby union player.

Employers: Fire and Rehire - Question ( 3 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister give us an assurance that any firm using this practice inappropriately will lose any government contracts? That would be a very clear indicator that the Government disapprove.

Schools: Resources - Question ( 2 Nov 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that schools are an important part of every community? They also contain a large part of things such as playing fields, theatres et cetera. What are the Government doing to make sure that these are available to the community outside the school day? Can we have an assurance that they will not be cut in the name of making sure that budgets are balanced?

Regency Act 1937 - Question (24 Oct 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Government indicate that they will at least consider that the person they go to in the first consideration will be somebody who actually undertakes royal duties, or at least some part of them, at present?

Plurilingual and Intercultural Education - Question (18 Oct 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister give us some idea of the Government’s assessment of the cost of not having sufficient people understanding other modern languages—or are the Government happy to have our heads eternally bowed to Google Translate?

Times Education Commission Report - Motion to Take Note (13 Oct 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, we must thank the noble Lord, Lord Lexden, for bringing this report to our attention. I did not read in it anything that I had not heard before, or at least heard discussed, but if you are interested in education and happen to have been in the upper Chamber of the British Parliament, you probably would have heard most of these things, so that is not a big surprise. The interesting...

Loot Boxes - Motion to Take Note (13 Oct 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, this is one of those debates when you think that you have something to say, you wait to say it, but then somebody says it all before you. The noble Lord has probably just done the House a favour by getting rid of much of what I was going to say. I came across loot boxes and started taking them seriously while following my noble friend Lord Foster of Bath’s campaign, for which he...

Youth Sport Trust Report - Question (11 Oct 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, it is well known that people drop out of sport at the various stages of education—at 16, 18 and 21—and that people who take their sport predominantly through small clubs, because they have better linkage to them, remain active. What are the Government doing to actively support the small club sector for the amateur sports that we are talking about, particularly considering how...
