Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Report: Amendment 29 (7 Dec 2022)

Baroness Barran: ...30, this conversely would threaten the independence of the role. I turn to the proposed additional reporting requirements to Parliament in Amendment 29. There are already several provisions in the Bill that provide for scrutiny of the operation of the Bill once enacted. Under Clause 5, the Secretary of State can ask the Office for Students to report on freedom of speech and academic...

Financial Services and Markets Bill: New Clause 17 - Reporting requirements (7 Dec 2022)

Vicky Ford: ...It is also a very important sector to the UK. The entire UK insurance industry accounts for 4% of our national GDP. The sector brings in an estimated total tax contribution in the region of £16.1 billion, or 2.2% of UK Government tax receipts for 2020. To put it another way, the insurance sector’s tax paid the salaries of every single nurse in the NHS in 2020-21. It is a really...

Written Answers — Home Office: Radicalism (7 Dec 2022)

Thomas Tugendhat: The overarching aim of the UK’s comprehensive counter terrorism strategy, CONTEST, is to reduce the risk to the UK and its citizens and interests overseas from terrorism, so that our people can go about their lives freely and with confidence. CONTEST is threat agnostic, and government’s powers and capabilities are both applicable and effective in tackling various ideologies, including...

National Security Bill - Second Reading (6 Dec 2022)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: ...will not be a short speech; it will be a sincere effort to address all the key points in full, and not a cynical attempt to bore all noble Lords to tears. Starting with interaction between this Bill and the Online Safety Bill, which was referenced by the noble Lords, Lord Stevenson of Balmacara and Lord Ponsonby, the Government are obviously aware that we have overtaken that Bill in its...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Public Sector: Procurement (1 Dec 2022)

Jeremy Quin: ...obligations, to ensure a fair and level playing field. HM Revenue & Customs require certain large multinational enterprises to report details of their economic activities in each country where they operate and the taxes paid in each country. There are penalties for those that file late or fail to do so. The Procurement Bill introduces new mandatory grounds for the exclusion of bidders...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 127 (30 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, both the amendments in this group ask for clarification and information from the Minister on the exact status of the trade agreements and how they are going to operate. I think the loophole that the noble Lord is trying to close is something that we need to think about very seriously, because we do not want to have trade agreements that then start to unravel. That is one of the big...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Support (29 Nov 2022)

Andy McDonald: The north-east of England process industry cluster has advised me that major companies on Teesside currently obtaining their energy via a private wire relationship do not qualify for the energy bill relief scheme, with some major employers paying millions more for their energy and facing the real prospect of ceasing operations and moving overseas. Will the Minister meet me to discuss how...

Scottish Parliament: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (29 Nov 2022)

Martin Whitfield: ...a number of other speakers, she talked about the evidence that has been heard in the Scottish Parliament that that will be a real shock to the system and that our businesses are truly struggling to operate under the post-Brexit regime.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 54 - Entities from high-risk jurisdictions: prohibition on ownership of UK land (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: ...the clause be read a Second time. Given the extensive discussions we have had on issues involving money laundering risks, including risks in relation to certain designated high-risk jurisdictions overseas, there is a fundamental question that we are not sure we have got to the bottom of. That question, which is addressed in part by new clause 54, is why we should allow a company...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (23 Nov 2022)

Lord Anderson of Ipswich: My Lords, two or three times a year I attend, for reasons unconnected with this Bill, human rights meetings of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. The committee’s function is to supervise the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. Its members are neither lefty lawyers drunk on the elixir of judicial power nor campaigners for human...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (23 Nov 2022)

Baroness Hoey: My Lords, there are many parts of this Bill that I find not just problematic but actually quite dangerous. There are also some parts of it that I agree with, and I am very pleased indeed that the Minister made it clear that he was prepared to look at a number of amendments. There is probably no other Minister with his knowledge and background that could actually succeed in making something...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: New Clause 61 (23 Nov 2022)

Clive Betts: ...that probably means that we need something beyond the size of an individual local authority to enable the economic transfer of power on the scale that is necessary to make a difference—to attract overseas investment, to get the skills agenda going, to put the transport infrastructure in place, and to do all the things that we want to see. That is why combined authorities are probably a...

Kevin Hollinrake: ...to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Elliott.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Confucius Institutes: Higher Education (22 Nov 2022)

Claire Coutinho: Like all similar bodies, Confucius Institutes should operate transparently and with a full commitment to the department’s values of openness and freedom of expression. Universities have a responsibility to ensure that any partnership with a Confucius Institute is managed appropriately and that the right due diligence is in place. We encourage any providers with concerns to contact the...

War in Ukraine: Illicit Finance — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (17 Nov 2022)

Leo Docherty: ...the expedited Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022. The Act is already helping us to crack down on dirty Russian money in the UK.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 140 - Power to apply Part 1 amendments to register of overseas entities (17 Nov 2022)

Kevin Hollinrake: Section 27 of the ECTE Act allows the registrar to require an overseas entity to resolve an inconsistency in information delivered to her where it appears to be inconsistent with other information on the register of overseas entities. New clause 19 amends section 27, so that the registrar may use any information she possesses, not only that published on the register, to require an overseas...

Autumn Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Jeremy Hunt: ...the challenges and we are fair in our solutions. Yes, we take difficult decisions to tackle inflation and keep mortgage rates down, but our plan also leads to a shallower downturn, lower energy bills, higher growth, and a stronger NHS and education system. There are three priorities then today: stability, growth and public services. I start with stability. High inflation is the enemy of...

National Security Bill: New Clause 9 - Use of Reasonable Force (16 Nov 2022)

Stuart McDonald: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (Mr Davis). He has our full support, both in relation to amendment 14 and to what he said about clause 83. A Bill of this nature is absolutely necessary and overdue, but I share the concerns of colleagues about the amount of time provided for debate and scrutiny. So short of time do we appear to be that the Minister,...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 88 - Analysis of information for the purposes of crime prevention or detection (8 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: ...when any of us in this place have the chance to translate a life’s work into the law of the land. Yet that is precisely the opportunity that we have afforded to the Minister, who is steering the Bill so ably through Committee. That is why we are here to help him. The Minister will know that he is living the dream. I know that the Minister is not insensible to the scale of economic crime...

Armed Forces (Tri-Service Serious Crime Unit) (Consequential Amendments) (No. 2) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve (8 Nov 2022)

Baroness Smith of Newnham: ..., who unfortunately is not here today. In his absence I welcome the statutory instrument and note that it very much fits with the reviews we talked about on various occasions when looking at the overseas operations Bill, when the Minister repeatedly said that the Henriques report will say or do whatever. That is obviously part of this decision, as is the Lyons review. Paragraph 7.1 of the...
