Lord Speaker’s Statement - Announcement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...there is a Private Notice Question on the extension of Article 50; an Oral Statement on Thomas Cook; an Urgent Question on the Attorney-General’s legal advice; and three more Oral Statements, on Brexit readiness, Iran and an update from the Prime Minister. For the Prime Minister’s Statement repeat, I have agreed with the usual channels that the time for Back-Bench questions will be...

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (3 Sep 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...put forward and that is the usual procedure for this House. On the questions of the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, about the Trade Bill, as far as I am aware and have been informed, all essential pre-Brexit legislation has been passed. Nevertheless, we are working on arranging with the usual channels some carryover Bills. We have agreement on that and I expect it to continue. My noble friend...

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (3 Sep 2019)

Heritage Rail: Young People - Question for Short Debate (5 Jun 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...the nerds”. The noble Lord is definitely on the right on end, not the right scruff end, of the trainspotter continuum. I enjoyed the fact that the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, even managed to bring Brexit into this debate, but I am certainly not going down that branch line.

Brexit: Creative Industries’ Access to European Markets - Question (15 May 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...economy as a whole in November last year and February this year. There has not been a separate economic analysis comparing the two scenarios he mentioned, but I think it is clear to everyone that a Brexit which involves an agreement with the EU is better, because it allows us more time to negotiate a future economic partnership which, crucially, involves reciprocity in many of the areas...

Electronic Communications (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Apr 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...to do that. Most of the provisions in this statutory instrument are genuinely technical, changing the language so that it makes sense in the event that we leave the EU. Of course, this is a no-deal Brexit SI, so it is contingent on that. The noble Lord, Lord Foster, asked some specific questions about his favourite subject—the BEREC regulations—such as why we did not bring them...

Mobile Roaming (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (14 Mar 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: We have had discussions with operators, and it is correct that they have said that they have no plans to do that after Brexit. They have not said that if they are charged increased charges by foreign operators, they will absorb all the costs ad infinitum, for the rest of time, irrespective of what they are. That is not an unreasonable position. The point is that since roaming as if at home...

Mobile Roaming Charges - Statement (7 Feb 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...environment in this country, unlike in some others, consumers have a choice.

They will accept the increased costs while they can.

Broadcasting (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2019)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...further broadcasters on a bilateral basis, because a lot of these discussions are commercially sensitive, depending on what they are going to do with their establishments to meet the problems of Brexit. I reiterate that this is an issue about Brexit, not about this SI, which is about the regulation—making sure that a regulatory system exists if we have no deal.

Public Sector Television Content - Question (25 Oct 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I would like to say that it will have prominence, but obviously I cannot give a guarantee today. Brexit will involve a lot of legislation. The fact is, we understand the urgency, that the media landscape is changing and how technology is changing. The old linear EPG is not fit for purpose. It is not for me to say where it will fit in the legislative programme because that is not my...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: International Broadcasting (25 Jul 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: The government has been engaging extensively with the Commercial Broadcasters Association (COBA) and its members to discuss the impact of Brexit on international broadcasters based in the UK. Over the past year, DCMS has hosted a number of ministerial roundtables on the topic of Brexit, attended by the COBA members. Ministers and officials have also held regular bilateral meetings with...

Gambling: Fixed-odds Betting Terminals - Question (10 Jul 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...be involved because it is an affirmative procedure, will have to take place. That is not in the hands of DCMS but of the business managers, and there are severe pressures on SI business because of Brexit.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (14 May 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...resources available to do her job properly. We understand the issues that that involves.

Youth Orchestras - Question (7 Dec 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...should check with its insurance broker because I am not sure whether that is a critical factor for travelling orchestras. Much more important is the visa requirements that will be needed after Brexit, and we are working hard with the Home Office to ensure that they are acceptable. The other measure that we are taking is the orchestra tax relief, which allows orchestras to travel.
