Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 205 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. However, there seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether suitable consultation has been carried out on the Bill. The Consultation Institute states in its response: “Many of the proposed changes in the Bill are not accompanied by evidence detailing why they are necessary or desirable. Where evidence in support of changes is cited, it...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 197 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response to this large group of amendments. In responding to my amendment, he said that there was a Conservative Party manifesto commitment to extend the franchise for overseas electors. My amendment was not about that manifesto commitment; it was about the donations that could then come in through that action. I was not saying that that should not...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 205 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the hour is late, so I shall be brief in introducing my amendments in this group. I have spoken previously in Committee and in the House about the fact that I used to work in consultation—that was my profession—and was an associate of the Consultation Institute. So these amendments are around my concern about the lack of pre-legislative scrutiny and consultation on significant...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 197 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, there are quite a number of amendments in this group, of which Amendment 197 is mine. I want to pay attention to amendments specifically looking at foreign interference in our elections and some of the consequences of the provisions to extend the overseas elector franchise. Under the previous group of amendments tabled in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, we discussed...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for the clarification she has provided, particularly around my amendment seeking to include fundraising. It would be extremely helpful if that could be added to the Explanatory Notes. She also explained that the Government want to future-proof intimidation sanctions, particularly online. When the Minister talked about varying the offences, did she mean just varying the...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: So the “varying” bit is just to do with the description of the offence. I thank the Minister. As the amendments I have tabled show, my main concern is the fixed five-year period. Other noble Lords have raised that issue too—the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, rightly said that that is only one parliamentary term—so it would be good if the Government could look at that again. I will make...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have a couple of amendments to Clause 28 in this group, and then further amendments, all looking at disqualification from elected office. My Amendments 160A and 161 to Clause 28 are really just to probe different government decisions as to why the Bill is laid out as it is. Amendment 160A is to probe the circumstances of elected candidates being found guilty of terrorism...

Glue Traps (Offences) Bill - Second Reading (25 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Fookes, for her excellent and thorough introduction to the Bill, which answered a number of questions that I had, having read it. As the noble Lord, Lord Randall, and others have said, she has a fearsome reputation as a champion of better animal welfare, and I am so pleased that she has introduced to the House this important Bill, which we will...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 145 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. I will just make a couple of points. One is that there is quite a bit of concern about this part of the Bill. The noble Lord, Lord Wallace, talked about concerns about proper checks, which is what we are very concerned about—making sure that those checks are done so that the people who are asking to come on to the register who have not been...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 149 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I have very little to say other than that it is a very interesting suggestion and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, for bringing it forward and giving us food for thought. I had no idea that France had overseas constituencies until he tabled his amendment and I looked into it. It is an interesting suggestion.

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 145 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have tabled my Amendments 146 and 147 mainly to probe what kind of checks and balances are taking place for who can register for a vote as an overseas elector. This is because our main concern about the overseas elector section of the Bill is that it could undermine the integrity of our electoral process if not done well. I have mentioned in previous debates concerns raised by...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 144 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, for his introduction to his amendment. I thought what he said about the opportunities that are available for new technologies to drive inclusion in our electoral process is really important if we are looking to the future. We completely support his aim to encourage the Government to invest much more in technologies in this area. As the noble...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 141 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Carry on—I will not be saying anything very different.

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 141 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, in speaking to my Amendment 144B, I would like first to take the opportunity to thank the Patchwork Foundation for its very helpful briefings on this matter. I will be brief because we have already heard that the current system of voter registration really is not working to the benefit of many people, and that voter registration rates are disproportionately low among young people...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 134 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I have the greatest respect for the Minister but—with the greatest respect—that really did not address the issue. However, in the meantime, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 134 withdrawn. Amendment 135 not moved. Clause 11 agreed. Amendment 136 not moved.

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 134 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I do not want to get into any discussion at all about what sort of electoral system is best because, to me, that is not what this clause is about. It is about changing the system without any consultation at all. Much of this Bill has had no consultation or pre-legislative scrutiny. Our concern—my big concern—is that lack of consultation, working with local people about the...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 134 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I did not argue in my speech for bringing proportional representation forward at all.

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 134 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have a number of amendments in this group. The first two, Amendments 134 and 135, are designed to probe the fact that the Government have changed the voting system for the next Mayor of London election and other mayoral elections—my amendment specifically uses that example—and for police and crime commissioner elections. I want to probe the reasons why the Government have...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Dairy Farming: Animal Welfare (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of report by Panorama into animal abuse and neglect on dairy farms; and what steps they are taking, if any, to ensure stronger enforcement of animal welfare legislation.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fish Farming: Animal Welfare (22 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the decision by the Scottish Government to introduce mandatory welfare inspections for farmed fish by APHA Scotland; and what plans they have, if any, to introduce mandatory inspections for farmed fish in England.
