Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 May 2022)

Sanjay Bhandari: Our beneficiaries are under-represented or minority communities in sports. I agree, I think that the Bill goes a substantial way to protecting them and to dealing with some of the issues that we saw most acutely after the Euro 2020 finals. We have to look at the Bill in context. This is revolutionary legislation, which we are not seeing anywhere else in the world. We are...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 May 2022)

Danny Stone: First, thank you for having me today. We have made various representations about the problems that we think there are with small, high-harm platforms. The Bill creates various categories, and the toughest risk mitigation is on the larger services. They are defined by their size and functionality. Of course, if I am determined to create a platform that will spread harm, I may...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (24 May 2022)

Adam Hildreth: Absolutely. Sorry, I was saying that I agree with how it has been worded. We know what is available, but technology changes all the time and solutions change all the time—we can do things in really innovative ways. However, the risk assessment has to bring together freedom of speech versus the types at risk of abuse. Is it children who are at risk, and if so, what are they...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (24 May 2022)

Katie O’Donovan: Thank you so much for having me here today and asking us to give evidence. Thank you for your question. I have worked at Google and YouTube for about seven years and I am really proud of our progress on safety in those years. We think about it in three different ways. First, what products can we design and build to keep our users safer? Similar to Microsoft, we have...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (24 May 2022)

Ben Bradley: It is the same from our perspective. We have our community guidelines and we are committed to enforcing those at the moment. A lot of the detail of the Bill will be produced in Ofcom’s codes of practice but I think it is important we think about operationalising the process, what it looks like in practice and whether it is workable. Something like Katy mentioned in terms of...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: New Clause 2 - Review of the changes to the Electronic Communications code (22 Mar 2022)

Julia Lopez: I thank the hon. Gentleman for tabling the new clause and, again, I appreciate the intention behind it. It would require the Government to carry out a review of the 2017 legislation that updated the electronic communications code, which is the overarching legislation that the Bill amends and that we have been discussing in Committee. I appreciate that the intention behind the new clause is to...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: Clause 61 - Rent under tenancies conferring code rights: England and Wales (17 Mar 2022)

Chris Elmore: The Government introduced the electronic communications code in 2017 and promised at the time that reductions in rent would, in reality, be no more than 40%. However, as we heard from Protect and Connect during Tuesday’s evidence session, there have been thousands of cases in which small tenant farmers, sports clubs and community organisations that host masts have seen their rents fall by...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2022)

Mark Bartlett: Speed Up Britain represents the MNOs: Cornerstone, MBNL, Cellnex, which is a towerco, and DMSL, WIG and the industry as a whole. I will put some facts, some numbers, on the table to help us understand what we are doing. Since 2017, we have completed about 1,000 agreements, of which 85% have been consensual and reached without any recourse to any of the processes associated...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2022)

David Rogers: Yes, originally there was a “secure by design” committee set up with various companies—Madeline and I were on that committee. There were various discussions about the best way forward. I remember one suggestion being that all we needed to do was to educate consumers. After I banged my head on the table quite a lot, I think that in the end we realised that it should not be...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2022)

John Moor: When I started out seven years ago, I was invited to take a look by the chairman of the organisation I was working for at the time, the National Microelectronics Institute. He was the CEO of an IoT company. I confess, I had not seen what the challenge was, so when he invited me—“John, go and take a look at IoT cyber-security”—I thought, “Why me? What’s the challenge?...

Public Bill Committee: Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Mar 2022)

Anna Turley: Thank you for meeting us to discuss our campaign. I should have mentioned at the outset that we represent all the site owners around the country who host telecoms communication infrastructure on their land. I am afraid that we are not seeing the same tailing off of difficult cases; a number of cases are continuing to come to us where leases are up for renewal, yet telecoms...

Public Bill Committee: British Sign Language Bill: Clause 1 - Recognition of British Sign Language (23 Feb 2022)

Rosie Cooper: In closing, I would like to acknowledge that this Bill is not a silver bullet for all the ills faced by the deaf community. Let us be clear: it never could be. As a private Member’s Bill, last on the list and brought forward by an Opposition MP, it is incredible that we have got this far. It is a testament to what can be achieved when we work together across the House, doing the right...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes (Conversion of Guaranteed Minimum Pensions) Bill: Clause 1 - Conversion of guaranteed minimum pensions (2 Feb 2022)

Margaret Ferrier: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Efford. I am grateful to you and to Committee members for joining me today to look at the detail of this legislation, which, as I said on Second Reading, is very technical in appearance but has a clear and simple purpose. The Bill will help occupational pension schemes to convert guaranteed minimum pensions, at the same time correcting the...

Public Bill Committee: Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [Lords]: New Clause 14 - Compensation of losses incurred by closure of legacy schemes (27 Jan 2022)

Matt Rodda: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Graham. I pay tribute to our police and fire service. I appreciate that the Minister shares that sentiment. I want to underline the points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Hampstead and Kilburn and others that we are just asking the Government to consider this again and to produce a report. That seems to be the very least that could...

Public Bill Committee: Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Meaning of “remediable service” (27 Jan 2022)

Matt Rodda: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I also declare an interest: there are members of my family who may be affected by the Bill. I am not entirely sure, but I believe that they may be affected. I also pay tribute to our public sector workers. As my hon. Friend the Member for Hampstead and Kilburn said earlier, and colleagues across the House have mentioned, we owe an...

Public Bill Committee: Charities Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Alteration of Charitable Company’s Purposes (25 Jan 2022)

Jeff Smith: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mr Twigg. I thank the Minister for his introduction. The Opposition agree with the measures in clause 1. They will reduce bureaucracy and allow charities to focus on the work that they do, which is the essence of the Bill. Charities do great work for society and our communities. We owe it to them to provide a legal framework that is clear and...

Public Bill Committee: Professional Qualifications Bill [Lords]: New Clause 3 - Protection for existing recognised qualifications (18 Jan 2022)

Bill Esterson: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. For workers whose professional qualifications are already recognised in the United Kingdom, this new clause provides additional certainty that the legislation will not affect them negatively. There is a clear need to give those whose qualifications are already recognised here that certainty and confidence. In many cases, those...

Public Bill Committee: Marriage and Civil Partnership (Minimum Age) Bill: Clause 1 - Marriage: increase of minimum age to 18 (12 Jan 2022)

Sarah Champion: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir George. I am so pleased that the hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire has campaigned with such tenacity on this issue. She has had knocks from every side, but she has kept on going because she knows that it is the right thing to do. I am in awe that she has got the Bill to this point, and all power to her. I would also like to thank the Iranian...

Public Bill Committee: Dormant Assets Bill [Lords]: Clause 29 - Distribution of dormant assets money for meeting English expenditure (11 Jan 2022)

Nigel Huddleston: I thank the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington for the amendment and his contributions to the debate so far. As numerous reports are already conducted on the distribution of dormant assets funding, including annual reports from the National Lottery Community Fund and each spend organisation in England, I hope to reassure the Committee that amendment 4 is not necessary. To date, in...

Public Bill Committee: Dormant Assets Bill [Lords]: Clause 20 - Return of surplus alternative scheme assets (11 Jan 2022)

Nigel Huddleston: Clause 20 introduces a means for the reclaim fund to transfer additional surplus money from the alternative scheme back to the participant to be distributed to its chosen charity, in accordance with section 2 of the 2008 Act. The alternative scheme enables firms with balance sheets below £7 billion to transfer an agreed proportion of dormant account funds to the reclaim fund, and nominate a...
