Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill - Second Reading (21 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has been a very interesting debate. I also welcome the noble Lord, Lord Roborough, and congratulate him on his maiden speech; we look forward to his future contributions. There were a few references earlier to Jonathan Swift, and I recall that he also wrote an essay suggesting that the poor could eat their babies if they were starving, so we should not assume that everything...

Water Framework Directive - Question (24 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, Ministers have discussions—as the Minister has told us—with the Environment Agency and with Ofwat, company executives, farmers, and community representatives, but these happen at different frequencies and the various players do not necessarily all talk to each other. The Minister may not be able to solve the problems relating to water quality single-handedly. Does he recognise...

Farmers and Landowners: Tax Consequences - Question (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I listened carefully to the Minister’s responses. There are a lot of doubts among farmers about what ELMS will actually mean, and there is too much uncertainty to allow them to plan properly for the future. Does the Minister properly understand why some parties are just not comfortable about entering into a scheme for which the tax implications are unclear, and which might not...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, for her introduction to her amendment which was very clearly laid out. Again, I would like to join with other noble Lords who talked about the number of government amendments, not just here but in Committee. People who were here on the first day will probably remember that I was a little bit cross about it. But in response, the Minister has...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 11 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Government for tabling a lot of the amendments, which have helped to bring clarification around utilities; quite a bit of confusion was expressed in Committee. I also remind the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Rolfe, who is not currently in her place, that she did say that we should be extremely careful about regulating private utilities in Committee. These amendments...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 33 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have a number of amendments in this group. First, Amendment 33 refers back to the principles that we debated at length in Committee; they were originally in the Government’s Green Paper and were consulted on. Our concern is that those principles were then left out of the Bill even though the objectives were included, so my amendment “would require contracting authorities to...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 33 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I must say that I am pretty disappointed with the Minister’s response to my amendments, particularly to those on the NPPS. I give notice that I intend to test the opinion of the House on Amendment 46, when we reach it. I also let the noble Lord, Lord Lansley, know that, if he chooses to test the opinion of the House on his Amendment 47, we will support him. In the meantime, I beg...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 46 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I would like to test the opinion of the House on Amendment 46. Ayes 163, Noes 162.

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 59 (28 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has been a short debate, but this group contains some very important amendments that the Minister should consider carefully. I turn first to the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Fox. He introduced it extremely clearly and explained why he considered it necessary. He made an important point: if you give a contract to somebody who, not a very long time afterwards, is...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 72 (30 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: The noble Lord, Lord Scriven, ably and clearly laid out why he has tabled his amendment and the concerns in this area. They partly remain from the debate we had in Committee, but they have also been raised on a number of further occasions, including earlier today. We have heard why people are concerned and why they think this amendment is needed. There are concerns around the VIP lanes and...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 78 (30 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have some amendments following on from the government amendments. They are simple probing amendments on the figure that the Government have come up with in their amendments. Amendment 79 seeks to delete from Clause 49 the figure of “£2” and insert “£3”. All I am doing here and in my further two amendments is trying to probe where the figure that the Government put into...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 127 (30 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, both the amendments in this group ask for clarification and information from the Minister on the exact status of the trade agreements and how they are going to operate. I think the loophole that the noble Lord is trying to close is something that we need to think about very seriously, because we do not want to have trade agreements that then start to unravel. That is one of the big...
