Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...Leigh and others referred to Sir Damon Buffini’s report on patient equity capital being available to our start-up firms, which is very important. We are not starting at ground zero. I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Mandelson, who is not here this evening, and to Vince Cable in the other place, both of whom, as the noble Lord, Lord Fox, mentioned in his speech, had a big...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

Lord Fox: ...the noble Lord, Lord Prior, has acknowledged that the current industrial strategy Green Paper, which now awaits the Government’s next move, had its genesis in the days of BIS and the noble Lord, Lord Mandelson. It was taken on and up by Vince Cable and the coalition, so there is a continuum through that process. I am sure that the Minister has read my party’s response to the...

Race in the Workplace: The McGregor-Smith Review - Question for Short Debate (24 Apr 2017)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: ...women on boards, and just as with the wage gap between men and women, it sometimes takes more than common sense for companies to act in their own best interests. It took a threat such as that made by Business Secretary Vince Cable in the previous Government about the underrepresentation of women on boards, and it took legislation to tackle the inequality of women’s pay, but the...

Regional Flags: Driving Licences and Number Plates (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Zeichner: ...with care and discretion. Of course, the party of nations and English regions is Labour, unlike the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, who tore asunder our regional structures in the last Parliament—an act of vandalism that Vince Cable famously described as “Maoist”. In the spirit of supporting thriving and healthy regions, I happily endorse the notion of regional...

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors: Property Act Receiverships (18 Apr 2017)

Jo Stevens: ...to Lloyds? We know that it sat alongside them very comfortably, because I have a letter from Alder King’s Julian Smith, dated 21 December 2009, to his Alder King boss Jonathan Miles, at his Lloyds bank address, thanking Mr Miles for appointing him as receiver. Sir Win was also sent the letter, but declined to respond. I also have a letter dated 22 May 2014, written by the then...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (3rd Day) (29 Mar 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...the time I have finished, it will be unambiguous. I anticipate that from the noble Lord, Lord Fox, in particular, because of course these were the principles for economic regulation introduced by Vince Cable when he was Secretary of State. I can confirm to both noble Lords that there is nothing sinister here. Of course, when we talk about the fact that Ofcom must have regard to a strategic...

Class 4 National Insurance Contributions - Statement (15 Mar 2017)

Baroness Kramer: ...severe spending cuts to public sectors already under extraordinary pressure? Do the Government agree that the whole Victorian structure of business and employment taxes needs re-examining? The former BIS Secretary, Sir Vince Cable, is chairing such a review for the Liberal Democrats. Will this Government, among their many reviews, take on frankly a review of similar scope, because it is...

Sale of Student Loans: Regulation (7 Mar 2017)

Jim Cunningham: ...off student loans taken out between 2002 and 2006. Conservative Governments have previously tried to introduce that policy, but they have never been successful. Indeed, the former Business Secretary, Vince Cable, scrapped the move in 2014, saying that it would not help the aim of reducing Government debt. Why are the present Government continuing to pursue the policy? With the sale of...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (27 Feb 2017)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: We look forward to that clarification. If we wanted to, we could quote many other Liberals, not least Mr Vince Cable, who I am sorry is not in this House. He made it clear that he thought that there should be no second referendum: “The public have voted and I do think it’s seriously disrespectful and politically utterly counterproductive to say: ‘Sorry guys, you’ve got...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (8 Feb 2017)

Baroness Bonham-Carter of Yarnbury: ...regime already in place. They put appropriate and proportionate power in the hands of an independent regulator, Ofcom, in order to protect the interests of citizens and consumers. To quote my friend, Sir Vince Cable: “The public interest centres on plurality and fitness”. These are beneficial proposals which have been carefully agreed through cross-party consideration. I hope...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Parliamentary approval for agreements with the Union (7 Feb 2017)

Alex Chalk: I was also a remainer and I regret the result, but does the hon. Gentleman agree with the view of Vince Cable, the former Business Secretary, that a second referendum raises “a lot of fundamental problems”?

Brexit: New Partnership - Statement (2 Feb 2017)

Lord Bridges of Headley: I am very sorry they disagree with that, because those were the words of Sir Vince Cable. It is what the Liberal Democrats themselves have been saying. I entirely agree with the guru of Twickenham. I am so sorry that we disagree on this fundamental point.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Lord Willetts: ...delegated to Innovate UK. Although it is clear that in theory there is a great deal that Innovate UK can do only with the consent of the Secretary of State, it was not my experience as a Minister that I or Sir Vince Cable were endlessly getting petitions to do specific things. Organisations operated within a range of delegated authorities so that they could get on with doing things. It...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (6th Day) (25 Jan 2017)

Lord Willetts: ..., Lady Garden. I do so very aware of how the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats worked together on this years ago, and I pay tribute once again to my former ministerial colleague, Sir Vince Cable, with whom it was a pleasure to work. But I think her account of the way the decision was taken is not quite correct and I do not think that her proposals for the future will work in...

Green Investment Bank (25 Jan 2017)

Joanna Cherry: ...up of the Green Investment Bank which, across the group, employs more than 130 people, including renewables investment professionals and technical experts. The Business Secretary at the time, Vince Cable, chose Edinburgh as the headquarters for good reason. Edinburgh came top of a financial and technical assessment, as one might expect of the second most important financial centre in the...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Arms Trade: Exports (24 Jan 2017)

Mark Garnier: ...line with standard processing procedures. In July 2014 the Department for Business Innovation and Skills had overall responsibility for the export licensing process. The then Secretary of State (Vince Cable) was responsible for the decision to grant or refuse an export licence in any individual case.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (16 Jan 2017)

Lord Willetts: ...the funding we have available, it would be excellent if HEFCE were able to identify and set aside more funding for high-cost subjects”. Indeed, I used to write such grant letters with my excellent former colleague Sir Vince Cable. What is happening—this goes back to discussions we had last week—is that as we are now moving from that old discretionary high-trust system to...

Green Investment Bank (11 Jan 2017)

Ed Miliband: ...Bank right from the get-go. I would say to the Minister that there is also cross-party concern about this sale—and I could mention Lord Barker, who was a Minister in the last Parliament, Vince Cable and of course people on the Labour side. Is not the key question for the Minister and the Secretary of State this one? They promised a new approach to industrial strategy with a new...
