Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Second Reading (20 Feb 2018)

the Earl of Selborne: My Lords, there is general agreement that this Bill, while modest, is nevertheless an encouraging start. I think it is a start to something far wider than transport and driverless vehicles; I refer particularly to the employment implications of robotics, and of course autonomous vehicles are part of that story. Over the next decade, or probably much longer, the Government will have to deal...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill - Second Reading (7 Feb 2018)

Lord Broers: My Lords, I realised when I saw my position in the batting order here that most of what I was going to say would have already been said, although I am somewhat astounded by what is coming out just now—what the noble Lords, Lord Whitty, Lord O’Neill and Lord Carlile, said—that we may not have had to get into this mess. I had thought that our membership of Euratom was,...

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Andrea Leadsom: I share the hon. Lady’s excitement about the centenary of the Representation of the People Act next Tuesday. One hundred years later, our Head of State is a woman. We have our second female Prime Minister. The First Minister in Scotland is a woman, as is our Home Secretary. The Leaders and shadow Leaders of the House of Commons and the House of Lords are women, and the Metropolitan...

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence (17 Jan 2018)

Jo Swinson: The hon. Gentleman, who is a fellow representative from Scotland, pre-empts the next section of my speech. We need to develop good standards across the whole United Kingdom, but this issue in many ways transcends national boundaries. We must develop international consensus about how to deal with it, and I hope the UK takes a leading role in that. Parliament has started to look at the issue in...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (8 Jan 2018)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: My Lords, I agree entirely with the last sentiments of the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths, about implementation. I am sure that the noble Lord, Lord Hennessy, will forgive me if I steal something he has already said in your Lordships’ House. He quite rightly pointed out that this is the ninth industrial strategy in his lifetime. In fact he said it was the eighth, but the noble Lord, Lord...

Industrial Strategy - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Kakkar: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the thoughtful way in which he introduced the debate and Her Majesty’s Government’s industrial strategy.

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

In 2009, the UCL-Lancet Commission...

Lord McFall of Alcluith: I thank noble Lords for their comments on the report. I welcome the warm words of support from the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, for the changes to the private business Standing Orders being considered. He has been vigilant in ensuring that the work that the Chairman of Ways and Means in the House of Commons and I do is scrutinised. We have had many meetings on that. I look forward to many more...

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, I welcome this debate and strongly support the analysis of the UK by my noble friend Lord Liddle. As he emphasised, we have to consider issues within regions as well as between them and some of the UK’s big cities—that is critical. We must also think about different types of inequality that correlate with each other: health and mortality, the environment, economics,...

Growing up with the Internet (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Nov 2017)

As he says, to be from farming and to become...

Science and Innovation Strategy - Question for Short Debate (23 Oct 2017)

I thank the noble Lord, Lord Patel, for securing this debate and for introducing it so well. I also congratulate him on his appointment as the chair of the highly regarded Science and Technology Committee. I have been a huge admirer of his clinical and...

Hospitals: West London - Question for Short Debate (18 Oct 2017)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, on securing this debate and thank him and all noble Lords for their contributions. As ever, I will try to address as many of the points made this evening as possible. In responding to this debate as a Minister in the Department of Health, I should declare an interest as a resident of west London for the past 11 years. I have counted up the...

Nuclear Research and Technology (Science and Technology Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: My Lords, I begin by thanking my noble friend Lord Selborne and the members of his committee for an exceptionally good report. I would like to read out a paragraph from the summary at the beginning, because in a sense it underlies the big question behind this debate. It says: “The decision the Government must make is whether the UK should be a designer, manufacturer and operator of...

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (16 Oct 2017)

Lord Callanan: I thank noble Lords for their consideration of the significant powers in this clause, which we recognise are significant.

Clause 32 confers on the Secretary of State the...

I was impressed by...

The past five months have been extraordinary, and it is a great honour for me to represent Warwick and Leamington, a...
