Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Anne Main: ...want to do, despite hearing all the pronouncements that this is a good system, they would be sending totally the wrong message. The Government are in listening mode, and we are having a slow roll-out. It is excellent that there is autonomy over payments for housing rentals. There are 1,300 people on the housing list in St Albans, and people say to me, “I try to rent properties, but...

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (16 Oct 2017)

Lord McNally: .... The communications on the strategy identify four strategic goals: maximising the benefit of space to society in the EU; fostering a globally competitive and innovative European space sector; reinforcing European autonomy in accessing and using space in a secure and safe environment; and strengthening Europe’s role as a global actor and promoting international co-operation. Much of...

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Sammy Wilson: First, I welcome the proposal in the Finance Bill, which adds to the previous decision about devolving corporation tax to Northern Ireland and giving us autonomy to make decisions about what the appropriate level may be. I am a bit bemused by new clause 2. The argument is that devolving corporation tax to Northern Ireland and our having a different rate will somehow or other open the door to...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Kidron: ...the obligation on the data controller to consider the context of the child user, and requires them to frame and direct the request appropriately. It underpins what we know about childhood: that it is a journey from dependence to autonomy, from infancy to maturity. Different ages require different privileges and levels of support. If being GDPR compliant requires a hard age limit, how do we...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Weapons (10 Oct 2017)

Mark Lancaster: ...priority for the MOD is to support the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in fulfilling our commitments as a proactive State Party to the CCW. MOD participation will allow us to share our thinking on autonomy, notably as set out in the recently published Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) doctrine note. This forms part of our efforts to build improved understanding at the international level in...

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...part of the digital Europe item, delegates focused on implementation of the Digital Single Market (DSM), cyber security and digital taxation. Regarding defence, the Council considered increasing EU autonomy, the admissions criteria for the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) and EU-NATO cooperation.

Devolution (Constitution Committee Reports) - Motion to Take Note (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...is that contained in paragraph 271: “We call on the UK Government and the devolved Governments to work together to put in place the frameworks needed to ensure consistency at UK level, thereby preserving the integrity of the UK single market, while respecting national, regional and local diversity, and the autonomy of the devolved institutions”. Of course time is short, but...

Lord O'Shaughnessy: ...dedicated professional staff – including psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and the police – work tirelessly to ensure that people are treated with dignity under the Act, and that their liberty and autonomy are respected as far as possible.

Scottish Parliament: Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Sep 2017)

Ben Macpherson: ...in the existing law by recognising—that is an important word—that domestic abuse might not only damage or violate a victim’s physical integrity but undermine their character and restrict their autonomy, freedom and ability to live their life in the manner that they choose. I said that the word “recognising” is important. That is because the bill, if passed,...

Scottish Parliament: Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Sep 2017)

Annabelle Ewing: ...position. It remains open to the contracting parties to define exactly what they intend to happen. Overall, I believe that the bill strikes the right balance by providing an effective legal framework for third-party rights that does not cut across party autonomy. I am pleased that this is a view that was shared by a number of witnesses. As the Scottish Law Commission points out in its...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Big Lottery Fund: Consultants (19 Sep 2017)

Tracey Crouch: ...comply with relevant legislation, management statements, financial directions, Managing Public Money, and spend controls. The Big Lottery Fund is led by a non-executive board which has operational autonomy in the procurement of services and in deciding its staffing structure.

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Ludford: ...will be unique, or uniquely ambitious, because of our starting point of close integration. The seventh feature is that we want to maximise certainty about what the arrangements will be while supplying no basis for what that certainty looks like. The last feature is that we are to have autonomy of UK laws, with the prospect of therefore diverging from European laws and a regulatory...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Self-employed: Average Earnings (12 Sep 2017)

Margot James: Many people choose to be self-employed because of the greater autonomy it gives them over when they work and what work they do. In February 2016 the Department of Business Innovation and Skills published research on self-employment. This showed that 84% of self-employed people thought their life overall was better in self-employment, compared with being an employee, and over half believed...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Hong Kong: Political Prisoners (12 Sep 2017)

Mark Field: ...to the Sino-British Joint Declaration and 'One Country, Two Systems'. I also made clear that it is essential that Hong Kong enjoys, and is seen to enjoy, the full measure of its high degree of autonomy and commitment to the rule of law enshrined in the Joint Declaration and Basic Law. On 17 August an FCO spokesperson issued a statement on the case, which said that "the UK remains a staunch...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (11 Sep 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...Further to Amendment 64, it is not appropriate for the Secretary of State to consult on the arrangements the body makes with its delivery partners. I think we discussed this on Amendment 47A. It is vital that the new body has the autonomy to design and deliver its services to obtain the best outcomes for the public. However, it will not operate in a vacuum. The services it provides will...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Baroness Stroud: ...in our society face challenges and disadvantages, but victims of modern slavery are among some of the most vulnerable. The experience of being trafficked or exploited not only takes from them their autonomy and sense of self but leaves them materially exposed, with no home, no source of income, no prospect of work, no protection and no community. The support provided to victims during the...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Baroness Finn: ...comes a point where the reforms are said to be embedded and controls can be eased off. My experience is that reforms embedded in departments are precisely that. They are usually embedded six feet under so that departments can regain autonomy and go right back to their old ways without further interference. We should not risk our digital leadership position to maintain a pointless power...
