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 Amendment 134 withdrawn.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.

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 106ZA (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, it has been a particularly interesting debate on the definition of spirituality and so on. We need to get more definition and clarity in order to move forward, so that there are no unforeseen or unfortunate consequences. I thank the Minister very much for his clarification. It makes perfect sense to me now and, on that basis, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 106ZA...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 118A (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I beg to move Amendment 118A on behalf of the noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, who cannot be in his place today. I am doing this to allow for debate at this time on Amendment 122A, which is on the same topic. Amendment 118A is a retabled version of Amendment 120 and this has been done in order to place it in the correct part of the Bill. As the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, has...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 118A (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: As the Minister said, we had an extensive debate on this at our previous Committee sitting, so I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 118A withdrawn. Amendment 119 not moved. Amendment 120 had been withdrawn from the Marshalled List. Clause 9 agreed. House resumed. House adjourned at 10.16 pm.

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 106ZA (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I shall move this amendment very swiftly because I was intending to spend most of this speech discussing what the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, said about his amendment, but I have missed my opportunity on that. Amendment 106ZA is about expanding the list of activities which may constitute undue influence to probe whether causing or threatening financial loss to a political party...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 96E (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for her comprehensive reply. I was particularly pleased to hear that disabled people will be able to apply for a permanent proxy vote; that is very useful to know. On that basis, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 96E withdrawn. Clause 6 agreed. Schedule 4: Proxy voting: limits and transitional provision Amendments 96F to 96J not moved. Schedule 4 agreed....

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 96E (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have tabled Amendments 96E to 96J. Similar to the last group, these are probing amendments on the proposals for proxy votes. During the progress of the Bill, the Government have given a number of instances to demonstrate where proxy voting has been abused in the past. It was notable in the PACAC oral witness evidence that Helen Mountfield QC said that, in her view, “It is...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 85 (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, my Amendment 85 is about providing legislation in draft to any committee of either House of Parliament which is deemed relevant by the Secretary of State. The reason for tabling this amendment is the same as in previous debates: with very little pre-legislative scrutiny, we really need to see the detail of the legislation ahead of debate. So, this is about seeing that legislation in...

Elections Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 85 (21 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for his response and I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 85 withdrawn. Clause 2 agreed. Amendments 86 and 87 not moved.

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

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for their contributions to this lengthy debate, and the Minister for his detailed responses. I am sure that there are areas of these amendments that we will return to on Report but for now, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 63 withdrawn. Schedule 1: Voter identification Amendments 64 to 73 not moved.

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...
