Thyroid Patients: Liothyronine - Question ( 6 Jul 2022)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare an interest as a thyroid patient and as patron of several thyroid charities. As my noble friend the Minister is aware, there are many patients suffering a misinterpretation of “routinely” in the advice that “T3 should not be routinely prescribed”. “Routinely” could mean either “regularly” or “without thought”. Can my noble friend make it clear that the...

Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill - Second Reading ( 4 Mar 2022)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have spoken in support of the Bill this afternoon, particularly the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton. Assault and refusal by drivers are exactly the sort of comments that would be added to the database and are relevant to the discussion as to whether that driver gets a new licence. Of course, the range of wheelchairs carried by taxis nowadays varies...

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first must make my declarations of interest. I am currently the holder of a London taxi proprietor’s licence, as I own a single London taxi and employ a taxi driver.

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill - Second Reading ( 2 Nov 2021)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I welcome this Bill. I think it is a bold and exciting project. It takes pride in not being able to predict what it is that will come out of it and in truly giving the science a free hand to lead the way. As has been shown by the original ARIA—the American DARPA—really quite incredible technologies and products can be created in this sort of environment, not to mention in a very...

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 May 2021)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, there are so many great and wonderful things about this House that it is hard to identify the changes that have taken place in the last year and their effects. It is a fundamental feature of an engineering project that you should make only one change at a time because otherwise you cannot tell which change caused which effect. We have been forced by this evil virus to change...

Trade Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Sep 2020)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, first, I declare my interests in trading companies, as listed in the register. When I first opened the Bill, I wondered why much of it was necessary. It had never occurred to me that HMRC could not already do what is permitted under this Bill. Was this collection of data done anyway and then stopped? Surely the data collection was necessary to make the figures accurate. Clearly,...
