Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, having been critical, I now extend a word of gratitude. In particular. I welcome subsection (1)(b) of the proposed new clause in the amendment to which the Minister drew attention, because that will definitely be needed in the future. It is a very helpful amendment indeed.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, in the absence of the noble Baroness, Lady Worthington, I shall move the amendment she has tabled. I shall not speak at any great length on it. The change which has been tabled is welcome, but it falls considerably short of what we were hoping for and, in particular, what the mayors were hoping for. They do not feel that the Bill gives them the powers to tackle the fundamental...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Can the Minister say why the mayors are calling for the change in the amendment? They are on the spot in the cities around the country and know the difficulties; they are asking for the change. Why are we refusing it?

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I rise to express my full support for the contribution just made by the noble Baroness, Lady Worthington. I regret that I was unable to be here for Committee last week, but I did speak at Second Reading and gave a list of locations which I believe would be suitable for consideration for introducing electric charging points. I understand that, interestingly, today the Cabinet is...

Children: Obesity - Question (10 May 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: I am grateful to the Minister for that helpful and hopeful reply. Like the noble Lord, Lord McColl, I believe that we need a major overarching campaign that must be focused on children, and principally the BBC would be the organisation to lead it. So I hope the discussions that are taking place will produce a positive programme so that we can see that the 8 million children, many of whom have...

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Patel, and his Select Committee for producing their wide-ranging and influential report. Nye Bevan said that the NHS will last as long as there are folk with the faith to fight for it. Without doubt the noble Lord, Lord Patel, and the Select Committee have demonstrated that they have faith ,and they are ably supported by...

Children: Obesity - Question (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, does the Minister believe that within the plan there may be a greater role for the major broadcasters in this country to give a stronger lead against these problems? The BBC, in particular, has major flagship programmes which are primarily about eating, putting on weight and calories, but the same applies to the other channels. Will he join me in a conversation with the BBC to try...

NHS: Winter 2017-18 - Question (18 Apr 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I welcome the review which the Minister has announced. Does he agree that it would be beneficial if we had a debate in this House on the review when it is out, and will he commit to trying to ensure that his Chief Whip gives us the time to have such a debate?

Brexit: Health and Welfare - Motion to Take Note (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, for securing this debate and for her persuasive arguments. I am grateful to all others who have contributed to what has been a very comprehensive debate. I will say something on the impact of Brexit on health inequalities. I am sure that many of your Lordships are aware of the work by Michael Marmot, who has highlighted that there...

Brexit: Immigration - Question (29 Mar 2018)

Media Advertising - Question (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, the Minister understandably could not answer all the questions asked by the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, but will she undertake to look at those questions, answer them and place the answers in the Library, and see whether it is not time for a thorough review of the governance of the ASA?

NHS: US Companies - Question (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: The Minister will be aware that I have had a number of exchanges about the likely agenda for the negotiations on the USA-UK trade deal. I have been seeking to establish whether the NHS will be part of those negotiations, and I have been told that vigorous protection will be given to the NHS. Is not the most vigorous protection that could be given not to have it on the agenda at all?

Gender Equality: Pay - Question (21 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, where does the Minister suggest that we look for the next steps and action to be taken in those areas where equal pay still does not exist? Returning to our backyard, the public service—she just mentioned local government—is it not true that there are still significant elements of unequal pay within the Civil Service, the public service and local government? This is an area...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, it is this side. I have been waiting patiently on this side. I am grateful to the noble Baroness; you will have your chance. I support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Warner, signed by several other noble Lords. The UK is a leader in public health. We have done extraordinarily well on the world stage and within Europe. I trust that the Minister will have no problem with the...
