Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Ministers: Pay (28 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The number of ministerial salaries available to the government at any one time is 109. This is a statutory limit governed by the Ministerial and Other Salaries Act 1975.

A list of ministers who are currently serving in an unpaid...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Windsor Framework (27 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: There is a proportionate level of resource allocated to ensure that the Windsor Framework is implemented. Many of those whose work concerns the Framework also work on a range of other issues including wider Northern Ireland-related matters, as well as wider UK-EU issues. It is therefore not possible to give a specific number of civil servants employed to implement the Windsor Framework.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Import Controls: Northern Ireland (27 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The funding allocated for SPS facilities in Northern Ireland to deal with goods moving into the EU through the red lane - as the Government had also committed to do under the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - is a maximum funding envelope. The figure is in line with a business case which was being prepared when that Bill was in Parliament. The facilities will fulfil a number of functions and...

Cybersecurity and UK Democracy - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I thank the noble Lord for all he does in relation to educating us on China. I cannot agree with everything he says, but I agree with the points he made about debts building up on the belt and road, and the importance of his committee’s report, which I think I will take away with me. I am going to America; I might take it away with me to read and have a fuller look at over Easter. We have...

Cybersecurity and UK Democracy - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I am glad that my noble friend deplores this behaviour, because I think that that is agreed across the House this evening. Of course our approach must be rooted in our national interest and we need to be co-ordinated with likeminded partners, and we are all working to have an open and stable international order in difficult circumstances. But China represents a systematic challenge to the...

Cybersecurity and UK Democracy - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: To answer the noble Viscount’s question, my understanding is that the Chinese ambassador condemned the “groundless accusations”, accused the UK of smearing China and stated that China was a victim of cyberattacks, including from the UK. He warned that China would adopt firm countermeasures in response but gave no further detail. This matches historical responses when we have called...

Cybersecurity and UK Democracy - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I note what the noble Lord says about the committee. It does a very important job and we do listen to it. I look forward to giving it evidence soon on the integrated security fund. The noble Lord probably has a better memory than me of the detail of the points I made when I was on the Back Benches, before I became the gamekeeper. What I would say about the National Security and Investment Act...

Cybersecurity and UK Democracy - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: We now have a senior FCDO civil servant as CEO of the Electoral Commission. Indeed, he has joined the Defending Democracy Taskforce which I very much value, being security vetted and so on. The noble Lord is right that some of these behaviours seem to be part of a larger-scale espionage campaign and it is disturbing that China is targeting bulk data. It seems to be part of the strategic...

Cabinet Manual - Question (25 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, previous debates in this House on the Cabinet Manual, and indeed on other issues, have demonstrated the importance of the manual, as the noble Viscount suggests, both for those working in government and those outside seeking to get a better understanding. As I said in good faith the last time he asked me this Question, the Government are considering options on timing and content in...
