[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Corporate Economic Crime (3 Nov 2015)

Steve Pound: ...that they appear to have U-turned on a key manifesto pledge. It is widely accepted that a major issue in corporate economic crime in this country is how we can hold companies to account for their actions, and in particular make corporate wrongdoing a criminal offence. The UK’s corporate criminal liability framework is widely considered to be inadequate and lags far behind that of the US....

Advertising Standards Authority — Question for Short Debate (29 Oct 2015)

the Earl of Courtown: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, for securing this debate and for the contributions of all noble Lords. The impact of advertising and its regulation are clearly issues that attract strong interest and feeling from many in the House. I will look at some background to the industry, as the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, did. The UK’s advertising industry plays a key...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill (16 Oct 2015)

George Freeman: ...history in medical innovation —from amputation in the 18th and 19th centuries to penicillin, bypass surgery, transplantation, the discovery of DNA and pioneering discoveries on genomics and digital health. Barely a month goes by without this country making another significant step forward in biomedical science. On any indicator, but particularly on the numbers of patents and learned...

Urban Regeneration (England) (8 Sep 2015)

Chris Evans: ...with his predecessor, who was known as one of the great scientific minds of Parliament. I remember how, in one of our last conversations before he left this House, he waxed lyrical about the fact that his successor knew local government inside out. I am glad that my hon. Friend is bringing that knowledge to bear in the House today. I will try to keep my contribution short, given what we...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2015-16 (1 Sep 2015)

Nicola Sturgeon: This programme for government sets out a range of actions for the coming year. It also sets out a vision for the coming decade. This Government has a record to be proud of. We have delivered better services with reduced resources; school leaver destinations are the best on record; a fifth of all school buildings have been rebuilt or refurbished; crime is at a 40-year low; we have higher...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, it is indeed time for a fundamental review of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. It is now almost half a century old and was the product of the prohibitionist orthodoxy that developed during the 1960s. It was the way in which our country implemented the requirements of the UN convention of 1961; subsequently, we doggedly signed up to the 1971 and 1988 conventions. It is through this...

Regulation of Political Opinion Polling Bill [HL] — Second Reading (19 Jun 2015)

Lord Bridges of Headley: ...alors!”, as he realises that this law, which he is meant to enforce, was designed for an analogue age. The Bill before us stipulates that “a person” who breaks the rules may be fined. In the digital age, what if that person, sitting in some far-flung country, sets up an online poll? What is to stop a foreign newspaper conducting a poll and publishing its results online? What is to...

Trade and Investment — Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2015)

Lord Maude of Horsham: ...single market. The point we made then was that the world was becoming ever more competitive. It was true then and is doubly or trebly true today. Today’s world is increasingly globalised and digital. Time zones and borders no longer present the same barriers to overseas trade, so we need to press ahead with removing state-imposed barriers to trade. The world, and especially Europe, is...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (4 Jun 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ..., for his kind words and I look forward to debating with him as the House scrutinises the legislation that we will be bringing forward. Our long-term economic plan is turning around Britain’s economy, as my noble friend Lady Noakes was right to emphasise. In 2008, the UK was hit by the most damaging financial crisis in generations. In 2014, we were the fastest growing of all the major...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (1st Day) (27 May 2015)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...of Nettlestone. I start by thanking the noble Baroness for her gracious acknowledgement of the contribution that my party and colleagues made in government over the past five years: that in 2010 we stepped up to the plate and took responsibility. What she said was very much appreciated. As the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, said, the noble Baroness, Lady Bottomley, has had an interesting,...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Culture Media and Sport: Analogue Commercial Radio Licence Renewals (24 Mar 2015)

Ed Vaizey: ...time to commit to a future radio switchover or set a firm or indicative timetable for such a move. This remains the Government’s view. However, the Government fully supports the transition to digital radio and has provided up to £7.75m to fund the expansion of local digital radio coverage to approach commercial FM coverage by September 2016. An effect of the Government’s decision in...

Small Businesses — Question for Short Debate (3 Feb 2015)

Lord Popat: ...in my father’s footsteps as a sub-postmaster before a career in accountancy, specialising in business and corporate finance, so business is very much in my DNA. It is one of life’s great satisfactions to start and run a business and I am proud to have been a member of a Government who have done so much to support small businesses. This Government recognise the importance of small...

Schools: Reforms — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...achievements, of which we are rightly proud, form just part of our school reforms, which are helping to build the citizens of the future. The Government recognise that the school environment impacts on a child’s learning and their attainment. That is why we took swift action following Ofsted’s findings in 2013 that 700,000 pupils were in schools where behaviour was not good enough. We...

Exports: Government Support — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I thank all speakers for a very interesting and informative debate. It has been very wide-ranging and has drawn on history as well as current practice. That is all thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Wheatcroft, who tabled the debate. We are very grateful to her for that. As other noble Lords have said, she has spoken in many economic debates in your Lordships’ House. I am sure...

Economic Leadership for Cities — Motion to Take Note (11 Dec 2014)

Lord Shipley: ...to our debate will be very valuable. My purpose today is twofold. First, it is reflective; that is, I want to look back at what the Government has done and what our cities have achieved since 2010. Secondly, it is about looking forward. We are experiencing a sea-change in our understanding of the economic importance of our cities; and by “cities” I mean the conurbation cities belong...

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 Nov 2014)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...when the two Front-Bench spokespeople agree—especially with the first part of the speech of the noble Baroness about having three distinct experts in the House of Lords and the rest of us being digital tourists. I found myself in much sympathy with that. I hope that I will do justice to what has been an excellent debate, and I shall try to pick up the points raised in so far as I have...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget 2015-16 (9 Oct 2014)

John Swinney: ...performs, an equalities budget statement and a carbon assessment of our spending plans. This budget comes at a time when Scotland enters a new phase in our economic and political debate. The economy has grown continuously for almost two years and output is now above pre-recession levels. As a result, 2014 is forecast to be the strongest year of growth since the financial crisis began. The...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Copyright: Internet (1 Sep 2014)

Mike Weatherley: ...about legal entertainment services, and alerts to subscribers found to have been uploading content illegally online; and what effects he expects the development to have on the implementation of the Digital Economy Act 2010.

Copyright and Rights in Performances (Personal Copies for Private Use) Regulations 2014: Motion to Approve (29 Jul 2014)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...disquiet within the creative industries. All this is a matter of regret. My first point is that we do not have the right structure in place for the creative industries. I regret that this has an impact on our deliberations in this House when we deal with legislation affecting copyright. A proper industrial strategy for Britain which identifies our country’s comparative advantages and...

Bills Presented: Clause 6 — Commencement, duration, extent and short title (15 Jul 2014)

Julian Huppert: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood, and to follow the hon. Member for West Bromwich East (Mr Watson). I hugely admired his stance on the Digital Economy Act 2010, just before I became an MP, when I watched as he stood alone against his own Government, who were trying to ram a piece of legislation through the House in something like an hour or 90 minutes—he will, I...
