Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I will see if I can come back to it before we finish. I was trying to give the examples that the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, had asked for. There was West Dunbartonshire Council and Stirling Council, and in 2021 Lancaster City Council passed a motion in support of the wider BDS movement.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I can certainly provide more detail of the boycotts, if that is helpful.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I was giving a list and I will certainly come back on that question. We have a group relating to the Occupied Territories later on, when we can go into this in more detail. If the noble Lord can give me a bit of slack, I will see if I can get fuller information and come back to that at the end. I was trying to answer the question on evidence. If I may, I should also like to cite, from...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Public Sector: Artificial Intelligence (20 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The incubator for Artificial Intelligence focuses primarily on early stage piloting of AI based productivity improvements. We do not currently have any work in the pipeline that involves facial recognition, but we recognise the need for government services to be fully inclusive. All Government Departments are required by our Service Standard to provide support via alternative channels for all...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Electronic Government: Proof of Identity (19 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The GOV.UK One Login system is fully operational providing a simple and secure way for people to access government services online.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Infrastructure: Cybersecurity (18 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The National Cyber Strategy 2022 set outcomes for critical national infrastructure (CNI) (in the private and public sector) to better understand & manage cyber risk and minimise the impact of cyber incidents when they occur. In addition, at CyberUK 2023, the Deputy Prime Minister announced specific and ambitious cyber resilience targets for all CNI sectors (public and private sector) to meet...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Vetting (18 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: As Minister for State at the Cabinet Office I am able to provide a response in relation to National Security Vetting (NSV). UKSV acts as the service provider for NSV across His Majesty’s Government (HMG). NSV remains a separate and distinct process to recruitment and onboarding processes and provides an additional personnel assurance within both public and private sector for roles and...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Update on tackling intimidation in public life (18 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Vigorous and robust debate is at the heart of British democracy and is essential to its health. However, in recent years, elected representatives and other public figures have been subject to increasing levels of intimidation and abuse, aimed at them and their families. As the Prime Minister set out on 1 March, council meetings and local events have been stormed, and MPs do not feel safe in...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: UK Internal Trade: Northern Ireland (15 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: As set out in the Safeguarding the Union Command Paper, the internal market system will ensure the smooth flow of goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland for internal UK trade. In line with the Government’s commitments since 2021, these arrangements establish individual schemes that can be used only by UK internal market traders, to preserve those benefits for UK traders and to...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Prime Minister: Databases (14 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The No10 Data Science Team has a remit to improve the way in which key decisions are informed by data, analysis, and evidence using cutting-edge data science techniques. This enables the Government to use the best available evidence, throughout the policy and decision-making process, to drive long-term systems change and enable staff to collectively solve the most pressing policy challenges....

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Import Controls (14 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: In the Draft Border Target Operating Model (BTOM), published in April 2023 the UK Government asked industry to provide information on their readiness for the proposed regime. The questions included: What challenges exist for the private sector in meeting the proposed timeline for introducing the new model and how can specific business models for importing be further supported to prepare? What...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: UK Internal Trade: Northern Ireland (14 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: By any sensible comparison with any other trade border in the world, there is no sense of a trade border for goods moving within the UK internal market. The smooth flow of goods within the UK internal market is secured and strengthened through our commitments in the Safeguarding the Union Command Paper.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: UK Internal Trade: Northern Ireland (14 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The EU does not have control over the movement of goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. The operation of the UK internal market system is the responsibility of UK competent authorities. The Government has guaranteed the smooth flow of these and other goods between Great Britain and Northern Ireland through the new UK internal market system, which complements the Windsor Framework...

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I start by welcoming my noble friend Lord Cameron of Lochiel and congratulate him on his recent appointment. I am sure he will prove to be a valuable Member of this House, and I look forward to working with him on all these issues. It is a matter of public record that my right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary wrote recently to the Scottish Government to raise concerns about...

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I hope the noble Lord, Lord Cameron, and myself will be able to take on the challenge of the thistle. I reassure the noble Lord that there have been official-level discussions on these matters, as you would expect. I am afraid that it would not be appropriate to provide a running commentary, but I will update the House in the coming months on the outcome of this work.

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I have no idea about the costs of those endeavours. However, I have no doubt that Scottish taxpayers will reflect on whether they were a good use of funds and whether the Government in Scotland should not be concentrating on the things that they are responsible for: health, education, social care and other matters.

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I agree with the noble Lord. There are well-established arrangements that underpin intergovernmental relationships. They do not always work. They are led by DLUHC, and I believe Brendan Threlfall is the director-general, working under Minister Gove. A recent good example would be the work together on green freeports—where there is overlap —with both the Inverness and Cromarty Firth...

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I can only agree with my noble friend, but I think it is a matter for Scottish taxpayers. I look forward with interest to the coming months and years. We need to try to work well together and be clear about the rules, but they were perhaps not perfect at the start.

Scottish Government: Devolved Competences - Question (13 Mar 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I actually think that the joint committees are important and give a sort of discipline to business. Where I am with the noble Baroness is that it is actually important, on specific bits of policy, to work together with the devolved Administrations. Certainly, in the areas that I deal with, I really try to do that—with things like borders, for example; the country is borderless, so it is...
