In Vitro Fertilisation: 40th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (13 Sep 2018)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, on securing this important debate. I join my Front-Bench colleagues in commending the quality of it; we are incredibly lucky both in this House and in this country to have such experts who are able to give such informed opinions on these topics. It seems to me entirely right that we should have the...

Brexit, Science and Innovation (6 Sep 2018)

Graham Stringer: The right hon. Gentleman is making some sound and sensible points about the negotiations on the future of Horizon 2020. We have been a net beneficiary of those funds. Does he accept not only that, overall, as the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee said, we contribute a great deal more than that to the EU budget but that Horizon 2020, which deals with elite science, is not the...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, and I pay tribute to her for her consistent championing of the UK agri-food industry throughout this whole Brexit process. This evening she has again made a knowledgeable contribution. My contribution will be restricted to the defence and security issues referred to in chapter 2 of the White Paper. I say to the Minister...

Amesbury Incident - Statement (5 Jul 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, with the leave of the House, I will now repeat a Statement made in another place by my right honourable friend the Home Secretary. The Statement is as follows: “With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a Statement regarding the events that have been unfolding in Amesbury and Salisbury. This morning, I chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee,...

The NHS - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Lord Bhattacharyya: My Lords, I thank my noble friend, Lord Darzi, for securing this debate, which has demonstrated how important our National Health Service is to the lives of so many in this House. I was very proud of the IPPR report—I was a long-standing trustee of the IPPR. I am an engineer; I am not a doctor. I design cars. However, I am married to a midwife, as well as the proud father of both a...

Digital Government (Disclosure of Information) Regulations 2018 - Motions to Approve (25 Jun 2018)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I start with an apology. Because of the way in which these items of business have been scheduled—or perhaps I should say not scheduled—I might have to leave before I hear the Minister’s response. He is aware of that and I am very grateful for his indulgence in that respect, which will make me feel even guiltier when he hears what I have to say. I am indebted to...

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

Paul Scully: Forgive me. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right, and I will come to that point later in my speech. I was talking about when there were solely hereditary peers. I thank him very much for allowing me to correct the record. The House of Lords clearly needs to do more, however it is composed, to ensure it is representative of the country, not just by reflecting public political opinion,...

Trades Union Congress 150th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, I welcome this debate, led by my noble friend Lady Prosser, on the importance of, and differing contributions to many aspects of life by, the trade union movement. Although the number of members involved in trade unions has declined since the 1960s, their role is nevertheless very important. I personally learned about the importance of trade unions when I was a student at Cambridge...

Brexit: Energy Security (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2018)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: My Lords, the effect of Brexit on nuclear energy will be critical for the United Kingdom. I declare my interests as an energy scientist and a consultant for a company, Tokamak Energy, which is progressing a private sector approach to fusion. I was formerly chief executive at the Met Office and learned something there about the unpredictability of weather, which is an important part of energy,...

Brexit: Competition and State Aid (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (24 May 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I start by thanking he whom we must call “the master of the universe”, my noble friend Lord Whitty, for his skill in bringing forward a committee report which I think meets the test of committee reports which I have observed over the years. I do not think that any particular measure for that test has as yet been defined, but if a report is good enough to bring not only...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Callanan: My Lords, I begin by making it clear that Parliament has a critical role in scrutinising the Government’s negotiating position. It is our responsibility as a Government to provide both Houses with ample opportunities for scrutinising both the approach we are taking to exiting the EU and any implementing legislation—and we are doing so. The Secretary of State for Exiting the EU has...

The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (26 Apr 2018)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: My Lords, I begin by congratulating all noble Lords on a debate that has been truly epic: in subject matter, in content, in form, in the heroic contributions—not just in this debate but also from those whom we laud in the health and care services—and in length. I am conscious of the need to give a fitting denouément to such a debate, and I hope I will do it justice. Before...

The Long-term Sustainability of the NHS and Adult Social Care - Motion to Take Note (26 Apr 2018)

Lord Prior of Brampton: My Lords, I first declare my interest as chairman of UCLH. The Select Committee has produced an outstanding report and I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Patel—I was going to say my noble friend. He is a mentor to not only the noble Lord, Lord Kakkar; I regard him as a mentor to me as well in this place. I make the obvious point: after 70 years, the NHS is still a remarkable...

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Darren Jones: ...pleasure to serve under your chairpersonship today, Ms McDonagh. I congratulate the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) on securing this debate. I declare my interest, as set out in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. The United Kingdom punches above its weight in the global digital marketplace, with £170 billon of turnover and £7 billion of tech...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

David Tredinnick: I certainly can, Mr Stringer. I would be glad to. We served together on the Science and Technology Committee in the 2010 to 2015 Parliament, and you know my interest in this. I will draw this all together with what is now a very important report. I have referred to the Lords report and said that there has been some doubt about complementary medicine. The reason why the Government need to look...

Security and Policing: Facial Recognition Technology - Question for Short Debate (1 Mar 2018)

Lord Patel: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, for initiating this debate. Your Lordships may wonder why I am speaking in it. It is true that my interest in facial recognition is more linked to medicine in identification and progression of disease, but that is not why I am speaking today. I am speaking because of another interest, which is that my university, the University...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (26 Feb 2018)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, the mere fact that we require these amendments is shocking in itself. UK universities receive an additional 15% in funding from the European Union. Academics will now struggle to co-operate on research projects. The change in the visa regime that takes place may deter high-calibre academics joining British universities. That is happening already. When European universities have a...

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...
