House of Lords Reform — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Jan 2023)

Fleur Anderson: .... We need to have further conversation about the result of our conversations. Later in my speech, I will go into what will underpin that. The SNP has used this debate about the second Chamber for game playing, to undermine the strength of the Union, and has denied Scottish people a voice in the second Chamber by boycotting it—by just leaving it alone. It has no interest in making...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Reduction) Bill: Clause 1 - Reduction of SDLT on acquisition of residential property (10 Jan 2023)

Craig Mackinlay: ...who are lucky enough to own a property will do when we purchase it is to do stuff. We might improve the bathrooms—or whatever we fancy, if pockets are deep enough—but those transactions that we make with local builders and others add to the local market. They add jobs, and there are VAT revenues and profits for B&Q and elsewhere. This all comes with it. A trap that the Liberal...

Scottish Parliament: Games Industry (Support) (22 Dec 2022)

Angus Robertson: Michelle Thomson raises an extremely important aspect of the gaming sector’s success and is reflecting on its room to grow—I think that we are all in favour of a growing part of that sector coming from the female workforce. It is fair to say that the Scottish Government and everyone with an interest in building up and boosting Scotland’s games sector is keenly aware of the existing...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill (22 Dec 2022)

Maggie Chapman: ..., for trans children everywhere. I am saddened that the amendments that I lodged at stage 2 were not supported, including those on the removal of waiting times and of the new criminal offence of making a false declaration; those clarifying and limiting the power of third parties to seek revocation of a GRC; and those providing penalties where applications are malicious or vexatious. I am...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (20 Dec 2022)

Baroness Kramer: ...for most of the recent quarters, thanks to the offsets for investment in oil and gas exploration. We are talking about a doubly wrong policy: even the banks are now starting to recognise that the game is up for investments in new oil and gas exploration. HSBC, the largest global bank, has announced that it will no longer finance such projects and will redirect its lending to achieve net...

Non-Domestic Rating (Chargeable Amounts) (England) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve (20 Dec 2022)

the Earl of Lytton: ...and long overdue. I warned the Minister, however, that my welcome would include some finger-wagging, so here goes. Although these regulations right an historic wrong, they do not by any test make it all okay. Leaving aside the impenetrable algebra of Parts 1 and 2 of these regulations—I do not recommend any noble Lord to pursue that too diligently—this measure is rendered necessary...

Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2022)

Mark Francois: ...up with it either. Ironically, FirstPort’s corporate strapline is “for great customer service”—well, you could have fooled me. I therefore call on FirstPort today to stop prevaricating and make sure the requisite part is sourced and installed as soon as possible, before I take this matter up with the Secretary of State in the new year. Thirdly, I raised the issue of the Rochford...

Seafarers’ Wages Bill [Lords] (19 Dec 2022)

Mike Kane: ...s actions did not appeal to a British sense of fairness. I would say that they could not have happened in any country with proper employment laws. That is what really needs to change if we want to make progress. My hon. Friend the Member for Weaver Vale (Mike Amesbury) talked about morality. I rarely go into morality in politics because there is rarely a black-or-white day in this...

BBC: Future Funding (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: ...public service duty. As for the TV licence, let us just call it a licence and grade it. How would we do that? Well, your Lordships’ answer is going to be as good as mine at the moment. However, making sure that the BBC is not under the control of the political group of the moment is absolutely essential. We must have something with a degree of public reaction—we are probably doing that...

Arts Council England: Regional Distribution of Funding - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: ...but that, in that case, “it was following the instructions that were set”.—[ Official Report, Commons, 5/12/22; col. 181.] So which is it? Is Arts Council England an arm’s-length body that makes its own funding decisions or is it an additional tool for implementing the Government’s levelling-up policy agenda? We have been told, not least by the Minister in last week’s arts...

West Coast Main Line: Services (15 Dec 2022)

Virginia Crosbie: ...challenging times during the pandemic, and we understand that during it, it was necessary to cut the number of trains running at that time. The problem is that Avanti not only has not picked its game back up, but has allowed its services to deteriorate. Our rail timetable has been shattered, with direct services between London and Holyhead hacked. Local ferry passenger numbers have been...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: New Clause 8 - Child user empowerment duties (15 Dec 2022)

Kirsty Blackman: ...mitigations after recognising the problem. It relies on the providers being willing to act to keep children safe in a way that they have not yet done. When I am assisting my children online, and making rules about how they behave online, the thing I worry most about is unsolicited contact: what people might say to them online, and what they might hear from adults online. I am happy enough...

South Staffs Water: Cyber-attack (14 Dec 2022)

Marco Longhi: ...with its customers, and I am assured at this point that it is taking serious steps to mitigate the anxiety caused and ensuring that its customers are supported. I have also asked it to make special arrangements—I do not know yet what they will look like—to reach out to some of those more vulnerable customer groups that I mentioned. Those of us with constituents who are customers of...

Scotland’s Future (14 Dec 2022)

Ian Murray: ...priorities being discussed around every single dinner table in homes across Scotland—because its own record in government for the last 15 years is utterly deplorable. Too many Scots are having to make the choice between heating and eating. In fact, heartbreakingly, too many Scots do not have that choice at all because they can do neither. That is the sad indictment of both the UK and the...

Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (14 Dec 2022)

Lord Winston: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 20, 22 and 23 in this group, with reference to Amendment 21. I am afraid that, much as I dislike it, I have a difference of opinion with the Minister. I want to make it clear at the start that this is not in any case an attack on his probity. I think he is completely honourable and honest, and is trying to do the same job that I am: to protect the...

Public Bill Committee: Child Support Collection (Domestic Abuse) Bill: Clause 1 - Collection of maintenance in England and Wales and Scotland: cases involving domestic abuse (14 Dec 2022)

Rachel Maclean: ...have provided. I thank the organisation Surviving Economic Abuse, which has done some fantastic work, supported by the Government, and has provided vital advice. It has really raised the game in highlighting what economic abuse looks like and where people can go to get help. My right hon. Friend the Member for Aldridge-Brownhills rightly highlighted the issue of deductions from payments....

Scottish Parliament: Digital Economy (Support) (14 Dec 2022)

Ivan McKee: I was delighted to attend the Scottish Games Week event in Parliament that Clare Adamson organised and to speak to the businesses and others who were present to show the Scottish Government’s support for and recognition of the importance of the sector and discuss how we can work together to build its future. I would be delighted to meet the member to discuss the matter further, and I have...

Scottish Parliament: Health Inequalities (Report) (14 Dec 2022)

Humza Yousaf: I am not suggesting that the problem is all to do with Westminster. I am simply making the point, as others have done, that serious academics at the University of Glasgow and many organisations, including the Child Poverty Action Group and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, have said that austerity has clearly been the driver of inequality over the past decade. There cannot be any argument about...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Schedule 8 - Transparency reports by providers of Category 1 services, Category 2A services and Category 2B services (13 Dec 2022)

Paul Scully: ...the right balance with its protections for free speech, which is why we have replaced the “legal but harmful” clause. I know we will not agree on that, but there are more new duties that will make platforms more accountable. Ofcom’s transparency powers will enable it to assess compliance with the new safety duties and hold platforms accountable for enforcing their terms of service to...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Clause 20 - Duties about freedom of expression and privacy (13 Dec 2022)

Alex Davies-Jones: I will speak broadly to clause 20, as it is an extremely important clause, before making remarks about the group of Government amendments we have just voted on. Clause 20 is designed to provide a set of balancing provisions that will require companies to have regard to freedom of expression and privacy when they implement their safety duties. However, as Labour has repeatedly argued, it is...
