Lord Bethell: ...people told us that Covid was going to be like flu—and then many millions have died around the world. I remember when people said that it would never come to Britain and that it would stay in China where it started, but then the cruise ships showed that the disease did travel, and when it started travelling, it would not stop. There were those who initially denied that the lockdown in...

Defence Procurement and Supply Chains (1 Dec 2020)

John Spellar: ...engines, trains and, recently, hydrogen buses. We are putting lots of money into green hydrogen buses, and there is a nice picture of one in Tyne and Wear that clearly shows that it was made in China. The UK and the Scottish Governments are putting a lot of money into wind turbines, but a huge amount of the work is going overseas. As I said, no one else behaves like that. I also draw...

Chi Onwurah: ...Only five years ago, the then Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer were happy to hand not only the financing but the technological development, innovation and reputational consequences to China.

Conor Murphy: ...for assisting in the procurement of essential PPE for our public services.

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 1 - Call-in notice for national security purposes (1 Dec 2020)

Matt Western: ...and others in the evidence sessions last week, with the sort of agenda that a Government of any political colour may have, we have seen particularly over the past decade an embrace of, say, China, and the investment in our nuclear power stations provision as well as in other areas.

Indeed, the 30 June formal statement that the UK read out on behalf of 28...

Summit of Democratic Governments - Question (30 Nov 2020)

Baroness Northover: My Lords, is the Minister aware that when China introduced the anti-democratic national security law into Hong Kong, very few EU countries, and none in Asia, Latin America or Africa, supported the UK at the United Nations?

Interestingly, maybe astonishingly, it allows for it to be based in any country—the UK, in the EU or in the rest of the world, presumably including China.

Audiovisual Media Services (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (27 Nov 2020)

Baroness Barran: ...about TikTok and VSPs based outside the EEA. Again, enforcement will depend on whether it is carried out by a UK regulator on UK jurisdiction. However, if, for example, a VSP was based in China, had no establishment in the UK or parent subsidiary or group undertaking in either the EEA or the UK, it would not fall under UK jurisdiction; indeed, that is just a reflection of the status quo...

Ultimately of more concern is EVs’ unsuitability for heavier vehicles,...
