Agriculture and Horticulture - Motion to Take Note (7 Jul 2016)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord De Mauley, and congratulate him on initiating this debate, which is particularly timely in view of the Brexit decision 10 days ago, to which he alluded. When I speak in the Chamber on rural issues, I am always conscious that I see things from a slightly different perspective from many colleagues on either side of the House. I am not a landowner but I was...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (27 Jun 2016)

Lord Butler of Brockwell: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Lester of Herne Hill. It brings back the arguments we used to have about the powers of the intelligence agencies on dog walks around Brockwell Park—which, incidentally, is not my personal estate. He was then counsel in the Spycatcher case, I was about to be Cabinet Secretary. He did not trust me then and since he says now...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Second Reading (27 Jun 2016)

Earl Howe: My Lords, in the digital age, the convergence of the internet with social media, combined with the rise of cheap but sophisticated internet-enabled devices, has given criminals, terrorists and hostile foreign states new means to attack us. Those who engage in organised crime, child sexual exploitation, drug crime and terrorism are resorting to ever-more sophisticated means to avoid detection...

EU Referendum and EU Reform (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2016)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: My Lords, every one of the three reports we are debating today is relevant to the event that will take place a week tomorrow and is given a great deal of added topicality by that event. Each one, as is invariably the case with such reports of our EU Select Committee and the Select Committee on Science and Technology, is a small part of the complicated jigsaw that makes up our EU...

EU: Energy Governance (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Lord Suri: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Scott, for bringing forward this debate. The report is timely given that we have only a little more than a week to go until the most critical poll that probably any of us will know in our lifetime. I hope that the British people, with their infinite sensibility, will opt for the safer choice rather than retreating from the world and the globalisation...

Digital Skills (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan, for calling this debate and for her lively and interesting speech. I share in the heartfelt thanks of my noble friend Lord Holmes of Richmond to the Select Committee, its staff and advisers for a very perceptive and wide-ranging report on the digital future. I have very much enjoyed the comments today of so many of the...

Government and Parliament - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I draw your Lordships’ attention to the declining quality of legislation presented to us. I raise this not only because we can do something about it—as the noble Lord, Lord Lang, suggested, we have to do something about—but because, as standards decline, there is more opportunity to ignore or even break the rules that have been devised over...

Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I welcome this opportunity to introduce an economics debate because so much has happened in recent months regarding our business and our economy. Ten months ago, we debated the economy after austerity. We looked at the impact of technology, of climate change, of terrorism, of conflict and of low oil prices. Even though these problems remain, I would have liked to have called this...

Investigatory Powers Bill: Powers to require retention of certain data (7 Jun 2016)

Theresa May: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. The first duty of Government is the protection of their citizens, and the first duty of Parliament is to hold the Government to account for the way they protect those citizens. This landmark Bill will ensure that our police and security and intelligence agencies have the powers they need to keep us safe in an uncertain world. It...

Genetically Modified Insects (S&T Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: My Lords, I am most grateful to my noble friend Lord Selborne for introducing the issue of GM insects for this debate, and to your Lordships for such thought-provoking consideration. It would be fair to say that before the preparation for this debate, I came to the matter with an entirely fresh mind. It has been an exceptional debate, so I thank my noble friend and the other members of the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, like a noble Lord, Lord Lisvane, I, too, want to deal with the quality of legislation presented to us. In recent years I have served on your Lordships’ Delegated Powers Committee, and I currently serve on the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee. During this time, I have become more and more concerned about the poor state of legislation presented to us by the Government,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I too look forward to the maiden speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Jowell, and I thank my colleagues for their kind support. Although education is not today’s topic, it is the target of much of our overseas aid and the foundation of everything which establishes this country’s place in the world order. Education changes lives and changes societies. I love what the writer...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, I am honoured to speak in the Queen’s Speech debate and join others in congratulating Her Majesty on her 90 years. It was a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Suri, who was born in India, as I was. We also obviously share the same belief in the importance of remaining in the European Union. The Queen’s Speech outlined an ambitious programme, but curiously does not...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Robin Walker: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams). I do not support his party or the SNP, but it is striking that they have both come to this House with alternative Queen’s Speeches and set out an alternative vision, which was sadly lacking in today’s speech by the Leader of the Opposition. I want to join the tributes paid by Members on both sides of the House...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Lobbying (18 Apr 2016)

Lord Bridges of Headley: The new clause will not prevent recipients from performing activities that are part of the intended purpose of the grant. It makes sure that taxpayers’ money is not diverted from their intended purpose and wasted on political campaigning and political lobbying. As indicated at the House of Lords Science Technology Committee, BIS and Cabinet Office are looking into how this new clause...

Immigration Bill - Third Reading (12 Apr 2016)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: With respect to the remarks of the noble Earl, Lord Listowel, and those of the Minister, the Science and Technology Committee had a special session here at the House of Lords in March, and we heard that the funding available for training teachers who are not advanced in mathematics or science to become better trained is actually decreasing. I wonder whether the Minister’s remarks are...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Lobbying (24 Mar 2016)

Matthew Hancock: Holding answer received on 21 March 2016 The new clause in government grants makes sure that taxpayers’ money is not diverted from their intended purpose and wasted on political campaigning and political lobbying. As indicated at the House of Lords Science Technology Committee, BIS and Cabinet Office are looking into how this new clause will apply to academic research.

[Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Cabin Air Safety/Aerotoxic Syndrome (17 Mar 2016)

Robert Goodwill: Certainly the CAA is involved in this. I meet regularly with the unions involved, particularly BALPA, so it is not something that we are trying to shuffle away, but we need to wait for the result of the inquest before we report on these particular cases. I will go on to present various pieces of evidence and show where we are on this important matter. I will talk about what work has already...
