Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 63 (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, there is a large number of amendments in this group, all of which refer to Schedule 1. As my noble friend Lord Adonis said, Schedule 1 is pretty enormous—there is a huge amount of information in it. It is concerning that there is a lot of very detailed information but that quite a lot of it is perhaps not pinned down in a way that would be helpful when making such huge changes to...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 63 (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank both my noble friends for their contributions and support for this amendment. As I said, this measure seems simple and straightforward to me. On the basis that it is important for people who do not have the right document to be able to vote, it seems a simple and sensible proposition that, when they register to vote, a little box comes up that they can tick if they need an identity...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I was only giving my personal experience.

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: It is an option.

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Perhaps I may clarify, as this has come up before. When you go to selection meetings you are asked to take a membership card in case anyone wants to check it, but it is not compulsory. I have never had my card checked.

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 56 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank all noble Lords who have spoken in the debate. I am grateful for the wide support for the amendments and for what we are trying to achieve with them. The noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, just made an incredibly important point. All through the debates that we have had, there has been a lot of discussion about the importance of democracy, the importance of participation and the importance...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Modelling was mentioned, but I appreciate that clarification from the noble Baroness. Again, the question is when this will be ready. When will the rollout be ready? We know that politics is pretty volatile at the moment. The Fixed-term Parliaments Act is going, so my biggest concern is what happens if things are not ready. Is there a back-up plan? I worry that, if the electorate are not...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 56 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have a number of amendments in this group. I thank noble Lords who have been supportive: the noble Baronesses, Lady Meacher and Lady Lister, and the noble Lord, Lord Woolley. In the previous debate, where we strayed into other areas, we heard a lot of concern about voter turnout. My amendments in this group aim to draw attention to the potential impact on voter turnout in all the...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I specifically asked about education programmes, the rollout of information and how people were going to know about the changes. What is the cost that the Minister has just given us going to deliver? It does not seem very much to engage electors in a pretty enormous change.

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this debate has ranged rather wide of the area covered by my amendments, to say the least. Having said that, it has been very interesting. As other noble Lords have said, the noble Lord, Lord Woolley, made a very important and powerful speech. I say to the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, that I am sure that we would all agree that every vote should count—of course it should—and I...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: That is correct. I appreciate what the Minister said about the Queen’s Speech, but, again, my noble friend is absolutely correct. Members of the Government keep telling us that this was a manifesto commitment, but it is important to clarify the distinction between a manifesto commitment and what the Government decided to go forward with in the Queen’s Speech. We can debate that, I am sure—

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: In that case, can the Minister explain why it was not detailed in the manifesto?

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: In that case, I will come back to the pilot schemes. If the Government were intending to introduce only photographic ID, and that is what the commitment was, why were pilot schemes run without including photographic identification?

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Fair enough—we will move on. I will go back to my amendments and discuss cost, which is where we started this debate some time ago. The noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, said the cost was actually not very much. I have the greatest respect for the noble Baroness’s knowledge around business finance, but most of my concerns are around the costs to local government. It would appear that she has...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 55 (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we now move back to the beginning of the Bill, to Clause 1 on voter identification and the Government’s proposals to introduce photographic voter ID at polling stations. I have tabled a number of amendments in this group. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, and the noble Lord, Lord Woolley of Woodford, for their support for Amendment 55. Amendments 55, 61, 62 and 92 all...

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 45B (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbots, for his introduction. As I am sure Members of this House are aware, new digital tools and channels have significantly changed the campaigning landscape in the UK during the last decade. This includes the use of organisational websites. Unfortunately, concerns about the transparency of some websites that have been set up for...

Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme - Statement (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I begin by warmly welcoming the noble Lord to his place; it is good to see him in this Chamber. He was an excellent Member of the other place and he is very welcome here. Moving on to the Statement, any scheme that will help Ukrainians reach safety is welcome. However, we feel we need more information as to how this will work in practice to give desperate Ukrainian families the help...

Minister for the Oceans - Question (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, does the Minister agree that a single Minister for Oceans could capitalise on our status as a maritime nation, bringing together offshore renewable energy, a sustainable fishing policy and blue carbon initiatives to harness the ocean’s carbon sequestration capacity and deliver huge environmental benefits?

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for his response to these amendments and other noble Lords for their contributions to the debate. I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, for forgetting to say that her name was with mine on the notice of our intention to oppose Clause 24 standing part of the Bill, and I thank her for her contribution. The debate has raised some important issues that we will come...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, a couple of the amendments in this group relate to Clause 24, and then one moves on to Clause 25. Amendment 35 in my name is specifically an amendment to Clause 24. I should say at this stage that the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, has given notice of his intention to oppose the Question that Clause 24 stand part of the Bill. We have had quite a wide debate around Clause 24...
