Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven Technologies (13 Nov 2019)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...the absence of proper legislative frameworks, leaves people entirely vulnerable. Left unchecked, every great liberating change will bring terrible risks and problems too. As my federal leader, Jo Swinson, put it: “New technologies can help us make better decisions, or they could embody the worst of human thinking. Artificial intelligence”, by its nature, “learns from us”. One...

Election of Speaker (4 Nov 2019)

Jo Swinson: I thank the Father of the House for the way in which he conducted this election. Congratulations from the Liberal Democrat Benches on your new role, Mr Speaker-Elect.

Common Fisheries Policy and Animals (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (4 Nov 2019)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...it? How will it be affected by whether the proposals put forward by the various parties go ahead—if the Conservative Party were to win the election, if the Labour Party were to win, or if, as Ms Swinson keeps telling us, the Liberal Democrats were to win and we were to have an immediate revocation of Article 50? What would be the effect on these and the other, similar regulations?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2019)

Baroness Ludford: ...affect the country in so many other ways. That this Conservative Government want to deliberately deliver a knock-out blow to our prosperity is dismaying, to put it mildly. As my party leader Jo Swinson said yesterday in the other place, people’s identities of remain or leave run deep, because this is about not only whether we remain in or leave the EU but who we are as a country. It is...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

John Healey: ...those sentiments in the days after that fire, and we must learn the lessons and never let this happen again. We heard that again today in the speech of the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson), who said that we must turn words into action. However, nearly two and a half years on, it is shocking and shameful that we still cannot say with confidence that a fire like Grenfell...

Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 2019)

Jo Swinson: Mr Speaker, from the Liberal Democrats Benches may we wish you well and congratulate you on a decade particularly as a modernising Speaker?

Early Parliamentary General Election Bill (29 Oct 2019)

Dr Caroline Johnson: ...Speaker; I appreciate your guidance on this matter. I hope you will not mind my responding to the comments made by the leader of the Liberal Democrats, the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson), who said that our children should have a vote because it matters to their future. This will affect my four, eight and 12-year-olds’ futures even more, but that is not a rational...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill and Extension Letter (21 Oct 2019)

Jo Swinson: The Prime Minister was withering in his criticism of the first Brexit deal, and yet he voted for it. He said that no Conservative Prime Minister should ever accept a border down the Irish sea, and yet he has done so. He said that he would never ask for an extension of article 50, and yet he sent a letter doing just that. If the Prime Minister is allowed to change his mind, surely the...
