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...

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...
