Royal Academy of Arts: 250th Anniversary - Question for Short Debate (12 Dec 2018)

Lord Tyler: ...historian I will concentrate on the history—not least because my great-great-great-grandfather was Sir William Chambers. So I want to look at how the Royal Academy came into being. As Members of your Lordships’ House may like to be reminded, Chambers was appointed architectural tutor to the then Prince of Wales in August 1757. The prince became an accomplished architectural draughtsman...

UK Fishing Industry — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (12 Dec 2018)

Luke Pollard: Okay, I withdraw that—I beg your pardon, Sir Henry. Fishing may have been betrayed by Conservative Governments in the past. Let us look forward, not back. Labour wants smaller boats to be given a greater share of quota after Brexit. Small boats are the backbone of our fishing industry. They are the small and medium-sized enterprises of the sector. If this were any other sector, we would...

Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (11 Dec 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: ...let them near in the offline world. There is an abundance of evidence showing how harmful this material can be and, significantly, that children often do not seek it out but stumble across it. Research by the NSPCC found that children are as likely to stumble across pornography by accident as to search for it deliberately. Also significantly, the NSPCC reports that children themselves...

Written Answers — Home Office: Home Office: Written Questions (10 Dec 2018)

Caroline Nokes: ...in order for a written question to be responded to with a disproportionate cost response. This is currently set at £850. Whilst we are not able to provide the exact amount it would cost to answer your question in full, we estimate it would be over this amount as it would require a manual search of a large number of individual records.

Shisha Lounges (5 Dec 2018)

Alison Thewliss: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. I am glad to see him here because we missed him very much in the Adjournment debate last night. I was going to send out a search party to see where he had disappeared to. Shisha bars are gaining popularity among young people who do not drink alcohol, either by choice or because of their religion. There is clearly some demand for that type of space where no...

Free Schools and Academies in England — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (5 Dec 2018)

Mike Kane: As ever, Mr Davies, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Chelsea and Fulham (Greg Hands) on securing this important debate. It is a debate without many Members; the House sat very late last night with the Brexit deliberations. I understand that the right hon. Gentleman went to Dr Challoner’s Grammar School. Its motto is “Ad Astra Per...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued) (3 Dec 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, as the noble Baroness pointed out, Clause 13 confers on police the power to enter and search the home address of a registered terrorist offender, under the authority of a warrant issued by a justice, for the purpose of assessing the risk the offender poses. Amendment 28 would narrow the purpose for which the power of entry and search may be operated, limiting it to assessing whether...

Sport: Drugs - Question for Short Debate (3 Dec 2018)

Lord Moynihan: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Addington, for raising this vitally important area of key sports policy. Your Lordships may recall that at the time of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012, Tina and Chris Dear set up the Matthew Dear Foundation. Tina Dear focused on the fact that any parent with a child who takes anabolic steroids should be aware that the drugs can be highly...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Position: Crime (Overseas Production Orders) Bill [Lords] (3 Dec 2018)

Edward Davey: ...the police put a notice to a journalistic organisation, that organisation will go back to the police and say, “You are asking for a huge amount, and we don’t really think it is necessary for your investigation. Let us enter a dialogue with you to narrow down your search so you can get information that will really help you, and therefore you will not have to waste so much time.” The...

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Baroness Hamwee: ...have of course informed me. We are familiar with the number of deaths from domestic violence, which still shocks, and we know that there is far more abuse than is reported. I understand that research by the College of Policing tells us that there is no clear evidence that criminal sanctions reduce reoffending. Indeed, there is a suggestion that punitive sentences are associated with higher...

Markets in Financial Instruments (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted: ...looked for that too. Industry has been spoken to and has some knowledge of what is going on but we, who have to approve this legislation, are the ones most kept in the dark. This is a decision in search of a policy and that is not the way properly to treat Parliament. I shall go on to test the statement about preserving existing outcomes of the transparency regime as far as possible. With...

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (27 Nov 2018)

Rhoda Grant: ...tackle; it is also for our parents and, indeed, for our society as a whole to tackle. We need to make hard-core pornography less accessible. In this age of technology, that should not be difficult. Search engine companies and internet service providers must introduce protection, but so far they have faced no pressure to act. Will the Government explore how it can bring its influence to...

Progress on EU Negotiations: Cancer Treatment: Psychological Support (22 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: ...life. It is usually their last hope. One third of patients will be lucky to find a matching donor in their families, but the remaining two thirds of patients will require an unrelated donor. The search for a donor can be extremely stressful. Despite the fact that there are more than 1.4 million incredible individuals on the UK stem cell donor register, there are still patients who miss out...

Artificial Intelligence (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Kidron: ..., the more processes it is subjected to, the less control or even knowledge of its impact we have. On a recent trip to Silicon Valley, an engineer put it to me this way: “You may be the author of your data, but we own all that it implies about you and all it implies about others”. The data, the inferences and the knowledge it offers are closely guarded by a handful of Silicon Valley...

Science and Technology Committee: Anti-bullying Week — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (15 Nov 2018)

Nick Gibb: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) on securing this debate. As he and all hon. Members present know, and as we have heard today, particularly from the hon. Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley), bullying can have a devastating effect on children and their families. I offer my sincere...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (4th Day) (14 Nov 2018)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...specific amendments, but it is my view that Schedule 3 should be entirely removed from the Bill. Schedule 3 creates a new regime in which anyone who is travelling into or out of the country can be searched, detained, interrogated and forced to hand over confidential documents without any suspicion by the border guards. That means that anyone could have their travel interfered with for no...

Synthetic Cannabinoids: Reclassification — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Nov 2018)

Carolyn Harris: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Howarth. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Mansfield (Ben Bradley) on securing this debate. Cannabis substitutes, or synthetic cannabinoids, have developed at a staggering rate over recent years, with more than 100 chemical variants, largely imported from the far east. The biggest concern is that many are far more potent and toxic...

Armistice Day: Centenary - Motion to Take Note (5 Nov 2018)

Baroness Andrews: ...men of Lewes were brought back to life in a truly remarkable event last Armistice Day by Lewes Remembers, a small group of local people, including our historic bonfire societies, who meticulously researched each of the men and their families. They knew where they lived and what they did; in some cases, they knew what they were like. On the evening of Armistice Day last year 360 men,...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (31 Oct 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...we always have to balance these matters. I shall deal with the amendments and explain why, for the moment, the Government do not support them. Clause 13 confers on the police the power to enter and search the home address of a registered terrorist offender under the authority of a warrant issued by a justice for the purpose of assessing the risk that the offender poses. We have already...

Ivory Bill - Report (Continued) (24 Oct 2018)

Lord Grantchester: ...interventions in Committee. I am grateful to the Minister for his willingness to carefully consider these issues and bring forward these amendments tonight. I also place on record our gratitude to your Lordships’ Constitution Committee for its scrutiny of the Bill and the recommendations that prompted the Government to rethink its approach to civilian enforcement bodies. These amendments...
