Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 30C (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for her response. Like her, I thought that the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, asked an extremely interesting question that did not occur to me when I read through the Bill. It was a very thoughtful question to take forward. I am interested to see where that goes. The noble Lord, Lord Stunell, made an important point about access to records and transparency of...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 30C (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for that clarification. I look forward to her response. I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 30C withdrawn. Amendment 31 not moved.

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 30C (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, we have now come to the seventh group of amendments, where there are two amendments, Amendment 30C, in the name of my noble friend Lord Collins, and Amendment 31, in my name. Both amendments are probing amendments to Clause 21, which concerns the registration of parties and considers the declaration of assets and liabilities to be provided on application for registration. One thing...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 30C (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: If it was a 2013 report, and thinking of inflation, I wonder whether that should have been reconsidered, to come back to an earlier discussion.

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his thorough response to this debate. On the amendment in the name of my noble friend Lord Collins around increasing the threshold, I have a slight concern that, rather than necessarily increasing the threshold, we will be saying, “Other people can also pay for things—it’s not just the agent.” Anybody who has been involved with an election and seen a...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I am speaking to my Amendment 25. In this group there is also Amendment 25A in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Rennard, which is very similar. These two amendments will echo quite a lot of the debate we have had over the last two groups, and I completely echo the words of my noble friend Lord Collins, in his response to the previous group, about many of the concerns we have about...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My question was really about the cost of the system trialled in Norfolk and whether the problem was that it was prohibitive. My understanding was that it would be spread out nationally, and I wanted to know why that did not happen and whether cost was an element.

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has certainly been an important debate. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, for his extremely comprehensive introduction to his amendments. It is really important to this debate for those of us who are not blind or partially sighted to hear exactly what the situation is for some noble Lords. We on these Benches are very happy to support his amendments. I also thank the RNIB...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 17 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for his response and look forward to his letter. I thank him for agreeing to write to me so that I have the details of the response. On that basis, I am happy to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 17 withdrawn. Debate on whether Clause 17 should stand part of the Bill.

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 17 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I imagine that, compared with the previous debate, this one will be a lot shorter and sweeter. I tabled the amendment to Clause 17, which, as I am sure noble Lords are aware, deals with criminal proceedings. I am aware that there are other amendments relating to this area that will probe much more deeply the provisions for the police and the institution of criminal proceedings, so I...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendments 15 and 16 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has certainly been a very interesting debate. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, for tabling these amendments, and I wish him well as I understand the reasons why he is not with us today. I also thank the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, for his incredibly thorough and forensic introduction in the noble Lord’s absence. I cannot think of anyone who could have better gone...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 4 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, just on that point on consultation, I suggest that the Minister, when he responds, thinks of the expression “more haste, less speed”. Rushing things through without proper consultation can lead only to difficulties and the issue being revisited at a later date.

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 3 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, on consultation, may I just come back to the Government’s response to the committee’s fifth report, which I read out earlier? They said that suggestions to set minimum timeframes for consultation were disproportionate and unnecessarily burdensome. This is just not good practice. We must have proper consultation when we are looking at anything that changes our governance procedures.

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his introduction. Clearly, these amendments are technical and we agree with noble Lords that they are required. I agree with my noble friends Lord Lipsey and Lord Foulkes that this enormous number of amendments was chucked at us in one go, with very little time to look at the detail, not just of what they say but of what the implications are. Noble Lords...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment A1 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I apologise. Did the Minister just say that the amendments have nothing to do with Clause 14? They are amendments to Clause 14.

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment A1 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The Minister did not address my concerns around consultation on the document. Will he come back on that, please?

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment A1 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, and we agree with everything he has just said. This is the beginning of our debates on the Elections Bill, so I start by thanking the Minister and his officials for taking the time to meet me and my colleagues to go through some of our concerns. I turn to the amendments in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher—again,...

Local Government (Disqualification) Bill - Second Reading (4 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I shall be brief and begin by confirming that the Labour Party fully endorses this proposed legislation. I also pay tribute to Sir Paul Beresford for promoting this important Bill in the other place and to the noble Lord, Lord Udny-Lister, for sponsoring it in your Lordships’ House. As my noble friend Lady Goudie just said, it is also supported by the Local Government Association....

Global Warming - Question (3 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this week’s IPCC report suggests increasingly severe climate impacts, with warnings that heatwaves and flooding are highly likely, including in the UK. Firefighters are the primary public service responding to flooding in the UK; heatwaves can cause wildfires, which firefighters increasingly face. Yet our fire and rescue service has seen huge cuts, including one in every five...

Elections Bill - Second Reading (23 Feb 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: In fact, it was meant to be the opposite.
