Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (11 Jul 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I support Amendment 25, moved by the noble Viscount, Lord Colville. I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. As the noble Viscount has said, the issue of the confidentiality of journalists’ sources has been a leitmotiv during the obsequies of the unloved Regulation of Investigatory...

Criminal Cases Review Commission (Information) Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, as this amendment relates in many ways to the question of journalistic material and journalistic sources, I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. This Committee stage follows the very useful debate that we had on this admirable Bill at Second Reading. As I said then, this is a very...

Electoral Integrity and Absent Votes (9 Dec 2015)

Stewart Jackson: ...? Mr Justice Mawrey was quoted last year as saying that our present procedures are “wide open to fraud” and that “serious fraud is inevitably going to continue”, enabling the manufacture of votes on an industrial scale. He also stated just before this year’s general election: “The law must be applied fairly and equally to everyone. Otherwise we are lost.” We await the details...

[Andrew Percy in the Chair] — backbench business — North-East Devolution (26 Nov 2015)

Kevan Jones: ...in 2010 from completely the opposite position to where they are now. It was very much an anti-regional agenda. In response to anything that had “region” before it, the right hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Sir Eric Pickles) would say that the Government did not actually believe in regions. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East (Mr Brown) outlined, we...

LGBTI Citizens Worldwide — Motion to Take Note (17 Sep 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, for tabling this important debate on upholding the rights of LGBTI people worldwide, and for the valuable and moving contributions, as the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, said, from around the House. I again welcome the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, to the Front Bench. He is used to the limelight—this is a little harsher sometimes, but he...

Human Rights and Civil Liberties — Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2015)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, I have difficulty in getting used to the fact that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, is no longer addressing us from the Government Front Bench, of which he was such a conspicuous adornment. I thank him for bringing this important debate before us today. I would like to offer just a few comments on some aspects of human rights in his debate. First, I make clear...

Gypsies and Travellers (Local Communities) (10 Jun 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: ...that the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) was better than the speech he made. I did not intervene because I wanted to hear his argument, but there is a central contradiction at the heart of it. He identified Gypsies and Travellers as “other”, and as being outside communities—the title of the debate makes that clear—but said that they should not be afforded any distinction...

Devolution and Growth Across Britain (3 Jun 2015)

Greg Clark: It is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. I congratulate you on your election. It is an enormous pleasure to respond to what on the whole has been a debate of the highest quality, although I have to say that it was marked by some slightly eccentric interventions. I am looking directly at the hon. Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey), who said that the...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (1 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, democracy is ailing. The unity of our United Kingdom is in peril. It is entirely possible that by the end of this Parliament, we shall be heading towards a fragmented United Kingdom and a greatly diminished Britain. The responsibility on legislators is enormous, and the responsibility on Ministers in particular is enormous. The responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of the...

Deregulation Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (5 Feb 2015)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I support the amendment, and in doing so I draw attention to my various media interests as listed in the register. Like my noble friend Lord Clement-Jones, I believe that Section 73 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 is an outdated piece of legislation that was designed in a bygone age. As I said when we discussed this in Committee, we should always look very warily at...

Music Education — Question for Short Debate (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Aberdare, on securing this debate. We are all extremely grateful to him for doing so. I declare my interest as a member of the council of the Royal College of Music. I was lucky enough to have an amazing music education at school, starting with learning the trumpet at the age of nine, and then taking on three other instruments—some of them, it...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I declare an interest in this subject as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests listed in the register. I very much welcome this amendment. Although I have some concerns about aspects of the drafting, the noble Lord, Lord Strasburger, is to be congratulated on shining a spotlight on an incredibly serious and troubling issue...

Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill — Report (25 Feb 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I must declare an interest in this subject as the executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. I have been involved in this issue throughout the process, since it first became apparent that there was a real problem in the debate that my noble friend led on this last summer, at the launch of the Private Member’s...

25th Anniversary of the World Wide Web — Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Baroness on her introduction to this historic debate. While the internet impacts on every aspect of life, two areas of society affected most are education and the media. The changes that have taken place in education have been breathtaking, not least for adults who benefit in terms of lifelong learning. I think, for instance, of the work of...

Local Government Finance Settlement — Motion to Take Note (9 Jan 2014)

Lord Snape: My Lords, along with other noble Lords who have spoken in the debate, I express my appreciation to my noble friend Lord Smith of Leigh for giving us the opportunity once again to discuss the latest local government settlement. Noble Lords will forgive me if I take a slightly different road from earlier speakers in order to avoid repetition of what has already been said. I draw your...

Animal Welfare: Cats and Dogs — Question for Short Debate (20 Nov 2013)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, I come from a family of proud dog lovers. My long standing personal friend and noble friend Lord Black of Brentwood, to whom we are all deeply indebted for this debate, has spoken eloquently of his lifelong devotion to cats. There is ample room in the human heart for both. Churchill regarded both cats and dogs with great affection and from time to time brought them together in happy...

Commonwealth — Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2013)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan, in this debate. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Luce, and congratulate him on securing this timely debate. I agree with him that for the Heads of Government convening in Colombo in November there is a significant history to be celebrated and a narrative that is redolent with optimistic potential, but, as the noble Lord, Lord Black...

NHS: Keogh Review — Statement (16 Jul 2013)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I agree with my noble friend very strongly that failure should never be a consequence-free zone. But would he agree that, for far too long, the bitter truth is that it was a consequence-free zone? My late mother was treated in the Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2008 and 2009, on two occasions. On the first occasion, she sustained an injury after...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (8 Jul 2013)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, for introducing her amendment and for ensuring that we are, again, post-watershed. I did not design it this way but, as someone who used to work at the BBC, I am always so much happier when I know that we are compliant with broadcasting regulations. I will start by addressing one angle that underpins this amendment...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Earl Howe: My Lords, the well-being principle in Clause 1 was devised on the basis of the Law Commission’s report on adult social care which this part implements. The report recommended that the new statute should set out a single, overarching principle that adult care and support must promote or contribute to the well-being of the individual. Not least in the light of our debate at Second Reading, I...
