Lord Clement-Jones: ...and codes should be withdrawn. In summary, earlier this month the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee published a report on these draft regulations made under Part 5 of Chapter 1 of the Digital Economy Act, as the Minister explained. The DCMS offered assurances that the codes of practice were consistent with each other and drafted to be compliant with the new Data Protection Act 2018...

Backbench Business: A120 Dualling (19 Jun 2018)

James Cleverly: ...at both district and county level to unlock the economic potential of this part of Essex and, in doing so, reinforce the economic potential of one of the few net contributory regions to the UK economy. The east of England is one of the net contributors to the UK economy. We want to contribute more, and we would be able to if we could unlock the entrepreneurialism and business acumen of the...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

David Lammy: ...workers, I think of my own mother, who did her own stint at London Underground, and of many occasions meeting her at Camden Town tube station, where she was based. I think of course also of Lord Bill Morris, elected general secretary of the Transport and General Workers Union, the first black general secretary of a trade union in Britain, who found his home in the movement after arriving...

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...as a negative, rather than a positive for itself, its staff and the public. We have to be honest: business rates are an extremely antiquated system that is not fit for purpose in our globalised digital age. The UK now has the highest level of online shopping in the world, and it is essential that the duty that is paid catches up with that reality. We know that online shopping is increasing...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

David Rutley: ...that this debate was over-represented by Members from Lincolnshire, although we recognise that that is another great county. The Government are committed to bringing sustainable growth to the rural economy, and to supporting and strengthening communities. We have talked a lot about crime. To reassure the hon. Member for High Peak (Ruth George), my DEFRA responsibilities are purely for a...

Electronic Communications (Universal Service) (Broadband) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...—and the noble Lord, Lord Cathcart, mentioned downloading documents. Setting it at 10 Mbps will allow all those things that he mentioned to take place. As has been mentioned, that is why the Digital Economy Act 2017 provides for the Government to direct Ofcom to undertake a review at any time, and it includes a specific requirement for a review to be undertaken when 75% of premises...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Rishi Sunak: ...enterprises, which are indeed the lifeblood of rural areas. My hon. Friend will know, as I do, that rural areas typically do not benefit from large multinational employers. The backbone of rural economies are small and medium-sized enterprises, for which business rates are often a significant cost to bear. Any relief that the Government can give is always warmly welcomed, and it makes an...

Proposed Media Mergers - Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Keen of Elie: ...raised about other platforms and their dominance—reference was made to Google, for example—we committed to reviewing the media public interest considerations during the passage of the then Digital Economy Bill. That can now be taken forward, as is our intention. As far as Ofcom’s powers are concerned, it is important to maintain and understand the distinction between the role of...

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (30 May 2018)

Jamie Greene: ...amendment 23 and to other amendments in the group. As the minister said, we came to a position on amendment 23 after I lodged an amendment at stage 2 to give effect to a recommendation of the Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee. The committee said in its stage 1 report: “The Committee recommends that the National Islands Plan be developed with clear outcomes, targets and measurable...

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill (30 May 2018)

Mike Rumbles: ...islanders said to the committee. Another major concern was that island proofing could be no more than a tick-box activity by the 66 public authorities that are identified in the schedule. As the bill stood, for instance, any of the 66 authorities might have been able to have someone sit in an office in the central belt and claim that they had conducted a desktop impact assessment. That...

Brexit: Competition and State Aid (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (24 May 2018)

Lord Whitty: ...free trade agreement with the EU would undoubtedly retain some mutual arrangements on fair competition, state aid and public procurement. Indeed, any modern free trade agreement with any major economy would probably have some such provisions—as, to a degree, would trade on WTO terms. As in many areas, “taking back control” is therefore a relative term. Nevertheless, the prospect of...

Public Bill Committee: Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: International road transport permits (22 May 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...going to Northern Ireland, would it need a permit, and if so, would that not create a border across the Irish sea? That might sound quite detailed, but it is fundamental to the understanding of the Bill and, for example, the number of permits to be issued, and is therefore informative to today’s discussion. We need to understand how permits will be issued according to each jurisdiction....

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Baroness Worthington: ...Subsections (11) to (14) of this rather lengthy amendment seek to introduce a concept of charging infrastructure rights—wayleaves, essentially—that is intended to mirror those granted under the Digital Economy Act 2017 for telecommunications. This is a significant issue for the country. We need to get this right. As we recognised when we granted these wayleaves for telecoms, this is...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (continued) (9 May 2018)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, the co-pilot is in charge of this group of amendments. As my noble friend Lord Lucas said, our transport networks are becoming increasingly digital. The regulation of the collection, sharing, use and deletion of data will be vital. Several stakeholders, including the insurance industry, have highlighted the need to ensure access to automated vehicle data, not least because it will...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Minor and consequential amendments (9 May 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. What a great pleasure this is. The Bill gives people more power and control over their lives online while supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in the digital age. It will deliver real benefits across the country and help our businesses to compete and trade abroad. Strong data protection laws give customers confidence in the...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Other enactments (9 May 2018)

...each of the following provisions— (a) section 19AC of the Registration Service Act 1953 (code of practice about disclosure of information by civil registration officials); (b) section 43 of the Digital Economy Act 2017 (code of practice about disclosure of information to improve public service delivery); (c) section 52 of that Act (code of practice about disclosure of information to...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: The significance of the Bill and the importance of data and data protection to the economy and the whole of society is reflected in this debate. The fact that amendments have been tabled on Report through the work of three different departmental Select Committees shows how wide-ranging this issue is. I principally want to talk about amendments 20 and 21, which stand in my name and those of...

Scottish Parliament: Digital Connectivity (3 May 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Communications is a very important part of the world economy and every aspect of the world. The first great step forward in digital communications took place 2,000 years ago, when the Romans introduced wig-wag, which was a hilltop system that carried a signal from Londinium to Roma and back in the course of a single day. That replaced the three months that it would have taken, by sea and by...

Artificial Intelligence - Statement (26 Apr 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...the PhDs mentioned be part of the independent review of higher education, which is looking primarily at undergraduate courses but needs to look also at masters and PhD students? We have looked at digital infrastructure time and again in this House, and each time the Minister has come to the Dispatch Box and talked about what progress has been made he has been met by a torrent of scepticism...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Data Protection (19 Apr 2018)

Margot James: ...(including sharing or selling) personal data. The Data Protection Act 1998 has served us well and placed the UK at the front of global data protection standards. With the new Data Protection Bill, Government are modernising the data protection laws in the UK to make them fit for purpose for our increasingly digital economy and society. It will set new standards for protecting general...
