Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (10 Jun 2014)

Baroness Sharp of Guildford: My Lords, I start with the sentence in the gracious Speech that, “Legislation will be introduced to help make the United Kingdom the most attractive place to start, finance and grow a business”. The legislation that will follow is the small business, enterprise and employment Bill. For a long time, I have had a considerable interest in science-based small firms. As the noble...

Scottish Parliament: Immigration Policy (Higher Education) (29 May 2014)

Humza Yousaf: I ask members to look at the progress that Scotland has made on international marketing. We are higher up the brand index than we have ever been before. Lonely Planet said in its 2014 guide that we were third behind Brazil and, I think, Antarctica. We are doing well. The fact that our budget has been reduced slightly is a direct effect of the cuts that we have received, but Scotland has still...

Copyright (Public Administration) Regulations 2014 — Motion to Approve (14 May 2014)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My Lords, in moving the lead regulations I will take the opportunity to speak to all three instruments before us today, which deal with exceptions to copyright. In today’s digital world the process of copying is intrinsic to new technologies that are used by vast sections of our society, from researchers and curators to teachers and consumers. Yet under current UK copyright law a great...

Care Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (7 May 2014)

Lord Owen: My Lords, for those who have not been in the debate I will try to deal with the specific responses from the different speakers. First, perhaps I may deal with the response from the noble Lord, Lord Lester. I agree very much with what he said. I believe that the European Court of Human Rights and the human rights legislation, coupled with the privacy Act, do enough to safeguard confidentiality...

Higher Education — Motion to Take Note (9 Apr 2014)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on securing this debate. I must admit that when I saw the list of speakers and started to calculate the average length of time they were taking, I inwardly groaned. However, I have sat here and, for the most part, have been enthralled by the nature of this debate, its depth, its wit and its analysis. There have been one or two debates that I have sat...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (27 Mar 2014)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, I want to comment on some of the policies on energy, science, technology and exports that were in the Budget speech. I declare an interest as a director of a small company and as an emeritus professor at UCL and Cambridge. Some of the information about science expenditure was in supplementary information provided with the Budget speech and not in the version that we had from the...

Regenerative Medicine: S&T Committee Report — Motion to Take Note (13 Mar 2014)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I very much welcome the debate and I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Patel, on securing it and commend him, the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, and the committee members for the quality of the report itself. I declare my interests as chair of an NHS foundation trust, president of GS1 and consultant and trainer with Cumberlege Connections. This subject is of considerable interest to me. I...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (10 Mar 2014)

Baroness Williams of Crosby: My Lords, my name is attached, along with others, to the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Hannay. I will speak briefly to make one or two points that perhaps are not so widely part of this debate, because, as I have rung up acquaintances of mine in universities—I know quite a few, having been an Education Minister—I have become more aware of the depth of the challenge to...

Syria and the Middle East — Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2014)

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, as the world recovers from the deepest, longest and most diffused economic crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s—I should emphasise that the recovery has been slow and erratic, with the resumption of growth and prosperity remaining fragile—another cloud threatens global stability and security. This cloud—and it is a deepening and darkening cloud—is...

Public Bill Committee: Care Bill [Lords]: Clause 115 - Approval for processing confidential patient information (30 Jan 2014)

Daniel Poulter: That is an important point. Rather than trying to throw up political smoke about the issues, that Committee took a consistent view, looked at the good legislation passed by the previous Government to protect the public and patient confidentiality, and recognised the importance of a more streamlined process for the transfer of information, and for medical ethics and research. That is exactly...

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...
