Public Bill Committee: Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords]: Clause 5 - Investigation reports (11 Dec 2012)

Ian Murray: ...in the supply chain, and ultimately on consumers”. That is the thrust of the amendment, which seeks to give the adjudicator the ability to pass information on to the OFT or, as it will be once the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill becomes law, the competition and markets authority. Open and vigorous competition is good for consumers, because it results in lower prices, new products...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Manufacturing (East Midlands) (12 Feb 2013)

Andrew Bridgen: ...role. In addition to the Government, we must all do what we can to provide the conditions for that growth to continue. Lower corporation tax, increased capital allowances, and many measures in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill will help to ensure that growth is promoted not only in the east midlands, but across our country.

Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: Clause 1 - Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (27 Feb 2014)

Chi Onwurah: ...change to a law that has existed for 40 years and saved many lives. I must confess that I am experiencing déjà vu because, as I have said, the last Bill Committee on which I served considered the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill. It, too, was full of attacks and policies based on anecdote, and here we are again. The Government have given up even pretending to tackle issues that...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (14 May 2013)

Lord Best: ...of the private rented sector. However, I was delighted that the efforts of your Lordships in support of the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, led the Government to bring forward an amendment to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill that will give the consumer greater protection by requiring all lettings and managing agents, who look after about 60% of the private rented sector, to be part...

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Mar 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: ..., but I urge him to think about what more his Government can do to aid recovery in rural areas. Most of the conversation and discourse I have heard from Government Members—for example in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill Committee—was about employment rights. The Minister seemed to think that the way to help small businesses was to erode workers’ rights, but I think that has...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (25 Mar 2013)

Lord McNally: ...19, 38, 46 and 131, and to the government Amendments 17D, 17H and 131BA to those amendments. This group of amendments, together with a new clause which your Lordships' House has already added to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, implement legislative parts of the Leveson cross-party agreement. Clearly these have been the source of much interest over the last week, since the Prime...

Human Rights — Motion to Take Note (21 Nov 2013)

the Bishop of Derby: ..., what can we put into that relationship that will lead these issues to be taken seriously? In your Lordships’ House earlier this year, we made a decisive intervention during the passage of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill about Dalits in our own country. First, how can we take that learning and that experience into our work with business in India to help people aim for a...

Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill [Lords] (19 Nov 2012)

Fiona O'Donnell: .... I stress to my hon. Friend that this is not a pitch to join him on the Public Bill Committee. One can have too much of a good thing. I previously sat with him on the Committee that considered the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, where the many valuable contributions that he brought to the debate in that forum were unfortunately spurned by the Government. We have already seen...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Families Bill: Clause 87 - Shared parental leave (23 Apr 2013)

Jo Swinson: ...appreciate the flexibility that you, Mr Havard, and Members have shown by allowing us to start this sitting a little later to enable me to deal with business on the Floor of the House regarding the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which happily has concluded slightly earlier than we had expected. I was responding to the hon. Member for Manchester Central on amendments 325 to 328 and...

Intellectual Property Bill [HL]: Report (23 Jul 2013)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, takes us back quite nostalgically to the days of the passage of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill. He is absolutely right to remind us of the importance of the metadata issue. It would be welcome if the annual report were to include a section describing such progress as may be being made on that important issue. I will speak to Amendment...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 12 - Power by order to increase or decrease limit of compensatory award (3 Jul 2012)

Ian Murray: ...here flies in the face of what he says— “if I have lost £70,000 as a result of my employer’s conduct, why should I be compensated to the tune of only £28,000?”––[Official Report, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill Public Bill Committee, 21 June 2012; c. 101, Q227.] That seems to me to be natural justice. There is a gap there. We can illustrate this with a number of...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (21 Mar 2013)

Lord Sheikh: ...in global wealth from West to East. In short, when this Government came to power, the UK was no longer an attractive place to start a business. Much of this is already being addressed through the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, and I was heartened to hear of the Chancellor's decision once again to reduce corporation tax. We already boast the lowest corporation tax rate in the G7,...

Competition and Markets Authority: Legislative and Institutional Reforms - Question for Short Debate (8 May 2019)

Lord Whitty: ...What is the end of this policy? That is the central point. As my noble friend Lady Hayter says, the end is consumer benefit. Like her, I recall us making that case at the Committee stage of the then Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which set up the CMA in its present form. We were not properly heard then. We need to be heard now. Even the reference to Adam Smith given by the noble...

United Kingdom: Future Demographic Trends — Question for Short Debate (14 Mar 2013)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...and investment, but this means rebuilding trust in the industry, as mentioned in the Filkin report. The Government rejected amendments that we tabled both to the Financial Services Bill and to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill to require those who hold and manage money on behalf of others to have a fiduciary duty towards those investors or beneficiaries. Until that is law, people...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Mar 2013)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...copyright law as an obstacle. Under their intense propaganda and lobbying onslaught several governments have fallen for this line and are trying to introduce laws that weaken copyright, such as the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill now going through Parliament". He then goes on to denounce, "these lobbying-driven legislative attempts to confiscate our property". It seems a bit of a...

[Martin Caton in the Chair] — Business Rates (30 Oct 2012)

Iain Wright: .... Friend the Member for Rochdale spoke far more eloquently about this matter than I could—will have a massive impact on retailing. The Government have form on this. My hon. Friend and I sat on the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill Committee, so we know that on matters such as unemployment legislation, feed-in tariffs for solar panels, and the tax grab for oil and gas companies in the...

Copyright and Rights in Performances (Personal Copies for Private Use) Regulations 2014: Motion to Approve (29 Jul 2014)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...adorned in a triple crown in glorious blue to complement her other attributes. She would be a wonderful commissar for IP. More seriously, your Lordships will recall that during debate on both the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill and the Intellectual Property Bill, there were calls from around the House for the chief executive of the IPO to become an advocate and proselytiser for IP...
