Rural Economy (Rural Economy Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (8 Oct 2019)

Baroness Rock: ...and the rural-proofing of all policy. Let us hope that this is a semantic difference and instead focus on some key areas of policy that require a sharp focus on rural affairs. First, with Brexit stalking their every move, we should start with the plight of our farmers. I refer the House to my interest set out in the register as a director of a farming enterprise. I am certainly no defender...

Artificial Intelligence (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Rock: ...framework for growth now in place in both capital and skills—the two prime determinants in scaling up businesses. To bring all this together, we need leadership from the highest level. Once the Brexit smog clears, we must ask what kind of economy we are trying to build. I suggest that we are gathered here today because we believe we can succeed if we incorporate AI and other technologies...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Baroness Rock: ...free for all adults just as we have done with adult literacy, with good results. I could not agree more.

I welcome the formation of a new business council but it must have a genuine role and input....

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (1st Day) (6 Mar 2017)

Baroness Rock: ...—the creation of UK Research and Innovation, UKRI, has proved relatively uncontroversial during the passage of the Bill. It is, though, vital. As noble Lords will know, whatever Article 50 and Brexit finally bring, we can be sure that we will need to be at the top of our game when it comes to commercialising research and creating innovative business ideas for the future. UKRI is a key...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Rock: ...nano-production facility with customers in Spain and Italy. I raise this example because its finance, while co-ordinated by Innovate UK, was actually provided by the EU. This is not a point about Brexit but one that should concentrate minds when it comes to making sure that we continue to back Innovate UK. I am glad to see that under the Bill it will retain its commercial focus but, by...
