Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Catherine McKinnell: ...that control passed to Lee himself.” Again, given the circumstances in which Lee was living and the fact that his mother was already reporting that he was being financially exploited, I find that hard to understand. Tragically, given what was to happen later, the police actually attended the address at which Lee was being held between 28 May and 5 June 2015, when we know that Lee...

Sri Lanka - Question for Short Debate (12 Oct 2017)

Lord Sheikh: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Naseby for bringing this important subject before your Lordships’ House. I am a friend of Sri Lanka. I have visited the country three times and met its leaders and other senior figures. I also enjoy a healthy long-standing relationship with its high commissioner in London. Here in Parliament, I am a vice-chairman of the All-Party...

Future of Work - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Baroness Bakewell: ...8217;Ancona, writing in the Standard, said that we have machines that can compose Bach, produce art and compose poems. Well, do we? Next week, there is a discussion at Portcullis House: “Will Robots Take Your Job?”. Will they? Many questions are opening up and the “popularity”—I put that in inverted commas—of AI as a subject for journalists, programmes...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Lord Mitchell: ...Data Protection Act was introduced in 1998. In those days, Facebook, Google and Uber did not exist, Amazon was barely four years old, Apple was tottering under the imminent threat of bankruptcy, search engines were rudimentary, as was the internet itself, and it would be another nine years until the iPhone would be launched. It was, indeed, a very different world. While I welcome the Bill,...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Jay of Paddington: ...and technical challenge of trying to regulate international communication and information flows, which are largely controlled by a handful of American-based internet corporations. In this parliamentary Session, I have the privilege of sitting on your Lordships’ Select Committee on Political Polling and Digital Media. We are investigating the questions of accuracy and transparency...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Joint Replacements (18 Sep 2017)

Philip Dunne: ...This principle would apply to all ‘Conversion to’ prosthetic joint procedures provided. The ‘Conversion to’ codes could be considered ‘revisions’ in clinical terms, and you may wish to include these codes in your data search. 4 A range of OPCS codes covering knee replacements, hemiarthroplasty knees, unicomparmental knee replacements, hip replacements,...

Children: Gambling Advertisements - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Lord Sugar: ...to the House. I apologise in advance if what I am about to say repeats some of his points, or those of the eloquent noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, who made some very good points. I am sure that many of your Lordships will know of somebody who was addicted to gambling. Your Lordships will also know that gambling can bring devastation to family life and even lead to criminal offences and a...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day) (13 Sep 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...companies work? There are some similarities with the points made by the noble Lord, Lord Hunt. They are mainly online businesses, typically with fun and appealing websites that contain eye-catching claims such as “Let us maximise your refund” or “We make claiming your refund easy”. They may somehow imply that they have an inside track with HMRC. They often pay for...

Non-Domestic Rating (Alteration of Lists and Appeals) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Regret (11 Sep 2017)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: .... I thank the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, for tabling the regret Motion. As noble Lords have heard, the noble Earl speaks with great authority of these matters. It is very good that he brought this to your Lordships’ attention so we can have a debate and get a response from the noble Lord, Lord Bourne. As I said, the noble Earl is extremely knowledgeable. We are very grateful to him. We...

Age of Criminal Responsibility Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Baroness Massey of Darwen: ...very honest about their experiences in the youth justice system, and changes to the system were made. We tracked the impact of the inquiry, and it had some remarkable outcomes. For example, the stop-and-search rules were amended for the better; disturbed children were less likely to end up in a prison and more likely to get appropriate help. Things can change, but the age of responsibility...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Lord Sugar: ..., they will receive unsolicited messages relating to things they may have enquired about in the past. This is effectively what we might call the “big brother” syndrome—someone is overlooking your data and knows all about you. You have a profile somewhere in the cloud. Let me tell your Lordships, it is not going to go away. All we can do is be very careful and wary of what...

Transport: Remote Island Communities in England - Motion to Take Note (20 Jul 2017)

Lord Callanan: ...for part of the year, and it is a source of amazement to me—as it will be to other Members from the north-east—that every year there are tales of people’s cars floating off the causeway. I assure your Lordships that it is not possible for the council to put any bigger signs indicating the required crossing times and the consequences if you do not adhere to them. The most...

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Keith Simpson: ...Marines. Members can see in that book that despite all the technology we now have—the firepower and the Cobra and Apache helicopters—it is still difficult, and there is an overwhelming desire not to kill or injure civilians. I welcome this commemorative debate and I know that colleagues on both sides of the House will contribute to it. With your permission, Madam Deputy...

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Baroness Andrews: ...and improved in the pursuit of better regulation and it is being done daily by the Health and Safety Executive. But here is the change: since 2010, we have had Conservative-led Governments who have departed from a legitimate search for better regulation to a position where deregulation is an ideological and political choice—where, indeed, it has turned into a battle cry. Having...

Security in the UK - Motion to Take Note (10 Jul 2017)

Baroness Manningham-Buller: .... I have little doubt that the Intelligence and Security Committee will also have a role. It was certainly the culture of MI5 when I was there—and I am confident that this will absolutely not have changed—to subject itself to a good deal of self-criticism and self-scrutiny in a search for constant improvement. We were never satisfied that we could not do better. We were always...

Development Aid Budget - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2017)

Baroness D'Souza: ...8221; achievement of modest goals in proper time: that money has been spent roughly in accordance with the protocols and broadly within the timeframe set. Is this enough? Together with many others, I, think not and this is a legitimate question for the public to ask. A search of the considerable literature reveals endless evaluation studies but very few long-term and reliable impact...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Stirrup: .... To do even this much we will need the necessary tools. The gracious Speech reiterated the Government’s commitment to spend at least 2% of GDP on defence. This is welcome, but I, like others, would draw your Lordships’ attention to the words “at least”. Despite the Minister’s remarks about the equipment programme, there is no doubt that the fall in the value...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Toby Perkins: ...to me that today we have learned that the Prime Minister’s head of policy is the latest adviser to leave the sinking ship. Not only did today’s Queen’s Speech tell us that this is a Government in search of a programme, but it was the first ever Queen’s Speech that was more noted for what was not in it than for what was. Never before have we seen a more charmless and...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Commons Reason and Amendments (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Mackay of Clashfern: ...a particular matter that does not arise especially under this Motion but, from my point of view, is rather important. When the noble Baroness, Lady Brown, raised the issue of the new power to search the headquarters of higher education providers, she indicated that it was something that the higher education providers anticipated with a degree of apprehension. In response to that, my noble...

Criminal Finances Bill - Report (and remaining stages) (25 Apr 2017)

Baroness Kramer: ...’ internal security team to track down the authors of anonymous letters that were sent to the board and a senior executive making allegations about a colleague whom the chief executive, Jes Staley, had recruited. The search entailed two major investigations which involved not only investigators from within the institution but bringing in security services from the United States to...
