Funding for Major Infrastructure Projects — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (3 May 2023)

Wera Hobhouse: ...the 3.7% average for industrialised countries. The UK’s frequent large changes in investment spending plans mean that it has the most volatile annual growth rate among all OECD advanced economies bar one, which makes it harder to deliver investments. The Government are failing to spend around £1 in every £6 they want to spend. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has said that...

Voter ID - Commons Urgent Question (3 May 2023)

Lord Walney: My Lords, are the Government alive to the prospect that they have set the bar too high for forms of photo ID for younger people in particular? The chance that someone would be so keen to vote fraudulently that they would make a fraudulent Oyster ID card as an 18-plus as a way to gain access to a polling station is vanishingly small. In that review, will they be alive to widening out the...

Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme - Question (3 May 2023)

Baroness Goldie: ...; these new facilities coming on tap, to provide the two new armoured brigade combat teams, are very effective, muscular components. I ask my noble friend not to be too pessimistic and cry into his beer because it is important to our Armed Forces that we show we support them and we are behind everything we ask them to do.

Scottish Parliament: Governing Party (Transparency) (3 May 2023)

Martin Whitfield: ...use the short time that I have to draw attention to other matters that the motion and the Labour amendment address. The first matter is in respect to the size of the Government in Scotland, which, bar one position, can be drawn only from members of the chamber. We have seen an increase in the size of the Government in both the number of cabinet secretaries and the number of ministers who...

Scottish Parliament: Highly Protected Marine Areas (3 May 2023)

Liam McArthur: ...of bullying that were made against former minister Fergus Ewing. Previously, it was asserted by the Government that that would not be in the public interest and that there would be a legal bar to it. I cannot help but have some suspicion that the First Minister’s announcement is related to the concerns that Fergus Ewing expressed in last night’s members’ business debate on HPMAs. If...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (2 May 2023)

Lord Knight of Weymouth: ...of how that alternative method would still provide the equivalent protection? That would leave the flexibility of age assurance; it would not require age verification but would still set the same bar. I merely offer that in an attempt to be helpful to the Minister, in the spirit of where the Joint Committee and the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, were coming from. I look forward to the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Type 31 Frigates (2 May 2023)

James Cartlidge: ...31 ships, is not manufactured in the UK to the required specification. Since changing its steel supplier, the prime contractor, Babcock, has been able to source some UK-produced section and bulb bar steel through its stockists, which represents about four per cent (about 677 tonnes) of the total steel requirement. Steel for our major defence programmes is generally sourced by our prime...

Scottish Parliament: Juryless Trials (2 May 2023)

Jamie Greene: 2. To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to reported comments from the Scottish Solicitors Bar Association that its plans for juryless trials would be an affront to justice and that any proposed pilot could result in boycott action. (S6T-01344)

Online Safety Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 17 (27 Apr 2023)

Lord Moylan: say that most speakers focused on the following issues. The first was the definition of legality, which was so well explicated by the noble Lord, Lord Allan of Hallam. The second was the judgment bar that providers have to pass to establish whether something should be taken down. The third was the legislative mandating of private foreign companies to censor free speech rights that are...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 20 (27 Apr 2023)

Baroness Kidron: a court of law and insisted that hundreds, in fact thousands, of images of cut bodies and depressive messages did not constitute harm. Rather, they regarded them as cries for help or below the bar of harm as they interpreted it. Similarly, there was material that featured videos of people jumping off buildings—some of them sped-up versions of movie clips edited to suggest that jumping...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 13 (27 Apr 2023)

Baroness Kidron: ...I certainly do not think that anything in the Bill will make the world online 100% safe, and I think that very few noble Lords do, so it is important to say that. When we talk about creating a high bar or having zero tolerance, we are talking about ensuring that there is a ladder within the Bill so that the most extreme cases have the greatest force of law trying to attack them. I agree...

Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill - Report: Amendment 4 (26 Apr 2023)

Lord Hendy: ...elephant trap. The purpose of this provision is to enable employers to get injunctions to prevent unions conducting a strike that has been balloted. I am reminded that, 44 years ago, I stood at the Bar of this House as junior counsel in a case called Express Newspapers Ltd v McShane and Ashton. Since then, I must have done dozens of strike cases. I know what my learned friends will say,...

Public Order Bill - Commons Reason: Motion A (26 Apr 2023)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ...not deny these changes to the principle of stop and search-appropriate scrutiny. Changes to the code require a full consultation with external stakeholders, such as the APCC, MOPAC, the NPCC, the Bar Council, the Law Society and others on the proposed changes and must be brought back to the House for us to consult upon before they are enacted into law. Finally, on the requirement for a...

Illegal Migration Bill: New Clause 17 - Serious Harm Suspensive Claims: Interpretation (26 Apr 2023)

Vicky Ford: I am listening closely to what the hon. Lady is saying. When I was the Children’s Minister, every single local authority in Scotland bar one was refusing to take any unaccompanied asylum-seeking children. Why?

Artificial Intelligence and the Labour Market — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (26 Apr 2023)

Richard Thomson: ...a quarter of all the work tasks in the US and Europe. It found that some 46% of administrative tasks and even 44% in the legal professions could be automated. GPT-4 recently managed to pass the US Bar exam, which is perhaps less a sign of machine intelligence than of the fact that the US Bar exam is not a fantastic test of AI capabilities—although I am sure it is a fantastic test of...

Antisocial Behaviour in Town Centres — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (26 Apr 2023)

Ian Lavery: ...stealing from the shop. We have security guards in the bigger stores, but then we have the smaller retailers. We had a chap who mentioned that somebody just walked in last week, picked 24 cans of beer up and just walked out. They rang the police, and they got a response four days later. The response was: “Well, can you explain which direction the gentleman went in?” That was...

Written Answers — Attorney General: Crown Prosecution Service: Recruitment (26 Apr 2023)

Michael Tomlinson: ...undertake a training contract and/or pupillage across England and Wales with the CPS since 2012. The CPS has extended its post graduate qualification requirements, to include not only the LPC and Bar Qualification, but the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination, which opens a career in law to a broader and more diverse audience.

Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (25 Apr 2023)

Lord Moylan: ...for that purpose. Of course, age verification works only if it applies to everybody: one does not ask just the children to prove their age; one has to ask everybody online. Unlike when I go to the bar in a pub, my grey hair cannot be seen online. So this provision will almost certainly have to extend to the entire population. In Clause 11(3)(b), we have an obligation to protect. Clearly,...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 4 (25 Apr 2023)

Baroness Kidron: ...companies have to do in the early stages to establish levels of risk, and then we can get heavy on the mitigation of harm. That is something upon which we all agree; if we could find a very low bar of entry, check whether there is harm and then escalate, I believe that would be something we could all work on together.

Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 2 (25 Apr 2023)

Baroness Kidron: also an open question about immersive technologies, whose protocols are still very much in flux. I am concerned that the Government are willing to assert that these environments will meet the bar of user-to-user when those that are still building immersive environments make quite clear that that is not a given. Indeed, later in Committee I will be able to demonstrate that already the...
