Channel 4: Privatisation (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Sherbourne of Didsbury: ...He always managed to achieve in our reports that often elusive combination of consensus and clarity. He has also achieved something else rather remarkable—namely, the Government have agreed, and acted on, the recommendations of our report. I commend the noble Lord, Lord Best, and the committee for that. At the heart of this debate is the following question: what is the point of Channel...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matt Western: ...agricultural workers and in championing their welfare. Arch also agitated for the widening of the franchise—ambitions that were to some degree fulfilled in the Representation of the People Act 1884. In the ensuing 1885 general election, Arch was returned as the Liberal MP—we can all make mistakes—for North West Norfolk, making him the first agricultural labourer to enter the House of...

Points of Order: Drugs Policy (18 Jul 2017)

Jack Brereton: ...take this opportunity to pay tribute to my predecessor, Mr Rob Flello. I thank him for his commitment to Stoke-on-Trent South over the past 12 years. He will be remembered as a dedicated community activist in Stoke-on-Trent and was respected here for his campaigning on a number of national concerns, particularly those relating to the road haulage industry, in which he played an active...

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Jake Berry: .... I will focus initially on the new town in my hon. Friend’s constituency, which in many ways is leading the Government’s thinking on new towns. Like all new towns, Telford is testament to the fact that place making never ends. The town has grown to be a success story as the commercial gateway to Shropshire over many years, but it faces some challenges. Parts of Telford have ageing...

Businesses and SMEs - Motion to Take Note (6 Jul 2017)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...in the UK. I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, that there is a consensus in the House on the importance of businesses, small firms in particular, because of their influence on their economy and broader prosperity. They are indeed the wealth creators. As my noble friend Lord Fraser said, their taxes fund our public services. They are the employers who create opportunities for a...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Rachel Maclean: ...the whole constituency, including a brownfield-first policy for new developments, broadband provision and farming. Redditch is also a great centre of enterprise and business, with a wealth of manufacturing companies, although it is particularly famous for its needles. At one point, Redditch made 90% of the world’s needles, and needle-making still occurs there today. In preparing for this...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (Continued) (29 Jun 2017)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: ..., helping people to make more informed financial decisions, correcting 70 years of policy failure to deliver a high-quality system of technical education, improving the quality and safety of our digital economy, and challenging the culture of indifference that ranks mental health below physical health. This is an agenda that will deliver a strong and safe society in which everyone should...

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Debbie Abrahams: ...against austerity in the general election just two weeks ago, I want to express my profound disappointment at the content of the Gracious Speech. After delivering Brexit and building a stronger economy, it refers to making our country fairer, echoing the Prime Minister’s warm words on the steps of Downing Street about building a country for everyone. Frankly, this just does not stack up....

Colne to Skipton Railway (26 Apr 2017)

Andrew Stephenson: ...between Burnley and Manchester. Closing the line obviously affected the area between Colne and Skipton the most, as it took away its rail link entirely. However, it has also had a much wider impact, because a trans-Pennine route was lost. Reinstating the line would be great news for Pendle, but would also boost the entire northern economy, improving connections from Preston through to...

Sky and 21st Century Fox: Proposed Merger - Statement (16 Mar 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...licence to broadcast there? Secondly, plurality is a term that probably needs to be reinterpreted as technology has moved on considerably since the first time this issue was raised in the events of 2010-11. The work done at that time by Ofcom, which involved a 40-day period of investigating similar but not necessarily the same issues, resulted in a report provided to the Secretary of...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2017)

Baroness Vere of Norbiton: ...silver bullet. It is a complex and challenging issue; the breadth of subjects that we have heard today attests to that, from women in prisons to women on boards, and from women in their role in the economy to women and their role in peace, and also the impact of pornography on girls and young women. In responding, I have tried to group some of these issues by subject. Noble Lords may...

Financial Statement (8 Mar 2017)

Philip Hammond: ...Benches. I committed at the autumn statement to review, with business, our R and D tax credit regime. We have done so and concluded that it is globally competitive. But to make the UK even more attractive for R and D, we have accepted industry calls for a reduction in administrative burdens around the scheme and will shortly bring forward measures to deliver that. In a digital age, it is...

Intellectual Property: British Economy — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (28 Feb 2017)

Pete Wishart: ..., creators, designers and wonderful artists to develop their businesses and grow, so that we can continue to do well as a nation. Intellectual property affects every single one of us and impacts on nearly every aspect of our day-to-day lives. The content we consume, support for our small businesses and the research and development arms of our multinational companies are all predicated on a...

Lord Clement-Jones: ...—written or audio—is borrowed from a public library. More than 22,000 writers, illustrators, photographers, translators and editors receive PLR payments each year under the Public Lending Right Act 1979 and subsequent amendments. There is a minimum payment threshold of £1 and a maximum of £6,600. Although this does not replace the royalties authors would receive if their book had...

Digital Economy Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...cash flow moves it from having a real policy to being reliant on prayer. The communications market revenue growth has accelerated from about 5% to about 5.5%, and this is driven by two particular factors. The main one is price rises which have been unsurprisingly in that 5% to 5.5% range, and there has been a movement to try to compete on the basis of ever-faster connections, or the...

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy: DWP Policies and Low-income Households (17 Jan 2017)

Damian Hinds: ...the end of the Question and add: “welcomes last week’s Official Statistics showing that the poorest households saw the biggest income growth of £700 in the last year; further welcomes the impact of this Government’s welfare reforms in supporting low-income households to find work, with over 2.7 million more people in work and 865,000 fewer workless households than in 2010;...

Health and Social Care (National Data Guardian) Bill: Night Schools and Adult Education (13 Jan 2017)

David Lammy: ...be teaching men and women from all backgrounds, ages and races who all have one thing in mind: passing “the knowledge” and becoming a London cabbie. They want to leave behind zero-hours contracts and insecure casual work. They are sick of minimum wage jobs in call centres, labouring on building sites, stacking shelves or waiting tables. They desperately want to get into more secure,...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget 2017-18 (15 Dec 2016)

Derek Mackay: ...a great privilege to set out to the Parliament my first draft budget, which is the first budget in which the Scottish Government will make use of powers that have been devolved through the Scotland Act 2016, including income tax powers. It is an historic budget, delivered in challenging economic and political circumstances. The tax and spending proposals that I will set out today will...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...who have not been lucky enough to be on the Minister’s—obviously very private—circulation list. It is a wonderful innovation and I found it most useful as I prepared for this speech. The Digital Economy Bill before the House includes some very sound ideas which this side can support, not least because some of them have surfaced in previous Bills in your Lordships’ House. However,...
