Children and Families Bill — Report (4th Day) (28 Jan 2014)

Lord Nash: My Lords, this has been an extremely thoughtful and well informed debate. I thank the noble Baronesses and the right reverend Prelate who tabled these amendments, as well as other noble Lords who have contributed and brought their valuable insights to bear on these important and very sensitive matters. I also thank all noble Lords who attended the round table on PSHE last week. We had an...

Water Bill — Second Reading (27 Jan 2014)

Lord Oxburgh: My Lords, I have various interests to declare, which I shall do during the course of my remarks, but in so far as water metering has been mentioned, and we have to be very careful about these things these days, I should declare an interest as a director of the company that designs, builds and supplies water meters that telemeter their output to wherever it is needed. At this stage in the...

EU: Reform — Question for Short Debate (9 Jan 2014)

Lord Kakkar: My Lords, I join in thanking the noble Lord, Lord Dykes, for having secured this important debate, and, in so doing, declare my own interests as professor of surgery at University College London and a member of the General Medical Council. The area of health and delivery of healthcare was not an area originally anticipated as having any competence at European Union level, specifically in the...

Police: Independent Police Commission Report — Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2013)

Earl Attlee: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Harris, on securing this timely debate as it gives me an opportunity to update your Lordships on progress. I pay tribute to the noble Lord’s work, even if I do not always agree with his views. Our police are among the best in the world. They maintain law and order, often by putting themselves in harm’s way, but maintain a strong sense...

EU Report: Effectiveness of EU Research and Innovation Proposals — Motion to Take Note (21 Nov 2013)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, it has been a stimulating debate. We have travelled far and wide—to Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and China—and I will cover most if not all of the questions in my response. Before I go further, it would be remiss of me if I did not pay tribute to the excellent introduction to this debate provided by the noble Lord, Lord Kakkar, and congratulate him on his recent appointment...

Security Services: Supervision — Question for Short Debate (7 Nov 2013)

Lord Soley: My purpose in bringing this Question before the House is to try to initiate some long-term thinking on the way in which we supervise our security services, the impact of high technology, the pace of change compared to our legislative process, and, importantly, the freedom and security of the internet. Let me begin by saying that there is no reason to doubt the importance of the security...

Energy Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 Nov 2013)

Lord Jenkin of Roding: My Lords, the House is very much indebted to the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, for the amount of time and the expertise that he has brought to bear on this important part of the Bill, as he rightly said. It has been a very long time in gestation. It was recognised two, even three, years ago that the difficulties which the ONR—it was then the nuclear inspectorate—faced in recruiting...

Care Bill [HL] — Report (4th Day) (21 Oct 2013)

Baroness Wheeler: My Lords, I welcome the Government’s decision in Amendment 167 to support the recommendation of the Joint Committee on promoting transparency in research and ensuring full publication of the results of research consistent with patient confidentiality. It is right that this should be a statutory objective of the Health Research Authority. The arguments in support of this at the Committee...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Health: Regenerative Medicine (8 Oct 2013)

Earl Howe: I would like to inform the House, together with my Rt Hon Friend the Minister of State for Universities and Science (Mr David Willetts), that the Government Response to the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee Inquiry into Regenerative Medicine, Cm 8713, was laid before Parliament on 1 October. The Government welcomes the Committee’s report and agree with many of its helpful...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Health: Genomic Medicine (29 Aug 2013)

Earl Howe: The United Kingdom has always had an enviable worldwide reputation for pioneering genetic research and has taken part in a wide range of related initiatives. Following the 2009 report of the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee inquiry on Genomic Medicine and its recommendations on genomic innovation, the Human Genomics Strategy Group (HGSG) was established in 2010, and delivered...

Alan Turing (Statutory Pardon) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (19 Jul 2013)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: My Lords, what a morning. What a privilege to be here today to debate the Bill. There are many reasons for supporting this Bill, so ably and movingly introduced by the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey, but I will suggest three good ones. However, perhaps the noble Lord, Lord Quirk, is right, and we should seek a pardon from, rather than for, Alan Turing. Of my three reasons on which I will comment,...

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Herbal Medicine (Regulation) (9 Jul 2013)

Daniel Poulter: Indeed, Mr Bone, as you say, you have no views on anything when you are impartially chairing the debate, but I am sure you pay keen interest to the topics raised, in your position as Chair and otherwise. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Bosworth (David Tredinnick) for securing the debate, which I am sure it is of interest to the consumers and practitioners who use herbal...

Written Ministerial Statements — Energy and Climate Change: Managing Radioactive Waste Safely (9 Jul 2013)

Michael Fallon: I am pleased to announce today the publication of the third annual report of the Government’s managing radioactive waste safely (MRWS) programme. The programme is focused on implementing the geological disposal of higher activity radioactive waste. The Government remain firmly committed to geological disposal as the right policy for the long term safe and secure management of higher...

Estimates 2013-14 — Department of Health — Health and Care Services (3 Jul 2013)

David Tredinnick: I wish to run through some of the points in our report for the benefit of the House and to suggest that there is one area of supply to the health service that is not being considered enough. At the moment we have two legs on the stool, rather than three. Before I do that, I would like to congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Charnwood (Mr Dorrell)—I used to know him as the...

Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises: Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2013)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, rebalancing the economy is in favour all round the House and rebalancing means a move away from consumer spending and a rising housing market fuelled by debt towards producing and selling more goods and services through investment. It particularly means selling overseas so that we can cut our current account trade deficit and cut it by encouraging SMEs to export. During my business...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Jun 2013)

Earl Howe: My Lords, I say straight away that I sympathise with the intention behind the noble Lords’ amendments. These two amendments seek to make an explicit statement about the Health Research Authority’s role in encouraging transparency in health and social care research findings and clinical trial results. We are all keenly aware of how topical the issue of transparency in health...

Global Migration and Mobility (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2013)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, for introducing this debate so comprehensively. It is an absolute privilege to work on the sub-committee under his leadership, along with other colleagues who I worked with on this report. This is a very important report because it is measured and has come at a time when there is a great need for a rational debate on issues of migration—a...

Public Administration Committee Report (Charity Commission): Student Visas (6 Jun 2013)

Adrian Bailey: Conscious of the time, I will be brief. I thank everyone who contributed to the debate. When I applied for it, my objective was a debate that was constructive in tone and would enable us to discuss issues and to present facts and figures that are not normally publicised to the extent that they should be. In its own way, the House today may have helped to change the perception abroad by making...

Taxation: Evasion and Avoidance — Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2013)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I, too, congratulate my noble friend on this very topical Motion. Tax avoidance has really captured the public’s attention. I am very sorry to see that there are no speakers on the Conservative Benches, because all of us have to shine a light on these practices. It is only in that way that we will be able to test their credibility and acceptability. I hope that this debate...

Intellectual Property Bill [HL]: Second Reading (22 May 2013)

Lord Walker of Gestingthorpe: My Lords, coming back to your Lordships’ House as I have, after three and a half years’ hard labour in the Supreme Court on the other side of Parliament Square, I have been touched by the friendliness and helpfulness of so many of your Lordships and the officers and staff of the House, whether or not they had any acquaintance with me in my earlier incarnation as a Law Lord. When I...
