Homelessness: Homewards Initiative - Question ( 4 Jul 2023)

Drax Biomass Power Station - Question ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, transporting this woodchip from a forest somewhere in North America by truck or train, loading it on to a container ship, taking it to the Mersey, taking it across the Pennines in another train and then discharging it into Drax—how can that possibly be green?

Corporate Profits: Inflation - Question (29 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, does the Minister agree with the IMF that the main cause of inflation is excessive corporate profits, and the fat cat salaries that go with them, rather than the wage claims such as those from people in the National Health Service?

NHS Procurement: Palantir Contract - Private Notice Question (22 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, it is quite easy to invent rules to get away from competitive tender and do direct awards. It goes back to the Horizon Post Office scandal, which is still there 30 years on. Why is this contract exempt from competitive tendering? What is the benefit? Given that the Procurement Bill requires it, why are the Government not doing it?

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 18 May (HL7677), why they have not made reports on HS2 to Parliament every six months; why predictable external factors such as recess and local elections have affected the timing of these reports; and when they expect to publish the next such report.

Nova Kakhovka Dam - Question (13 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, vast areas of Ukraine are now under water. Is the Minister aware that there is a big shortage of boats there, as he might expect? Will he work with me to try to repurpose some of the boats coming across the channel with so-called illegal immigrants, so that they can be reused in Ukraine, instead of being wrecked to stop them being reused in this country?

Electronic Passport Control Systems - Question ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what action they are taking to improve the reliability of their electronic passport control systems.

Electronic Passport Control Systems - Question ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: I am grateful to the Minister for that explanation. When you are standing for many hours at an e-gate, resilient is not the adjective I would use, but at least the Home Office issued a press release the next day, saying that it had put in place “robust plans” to deploy officers. That is useful. Is it not time that we had a contingency plan for e-gates, three years after the Government...

Driving Licences - Question ( 5 Jun 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, if it takes up to a year after you have applied for a test to get one, it is not surprising that people apply early, because they will have to practise driving in the long period before they get to the test. Can the Minister confirm that the only way to get a test quickly is if you are rich and can afford a couple of hundred quid to bribe one of these middle people?

Trains: Wifi Provision for Passengers - Question (25 May 2023)

Lord Berkeley: I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer. She will be aware that, I think, most train operators already have wifi in all their trains for management and revenue purposes. How much money would be saved by the Treasury if they removed access to wifi from the passengers?
