Gambling White Paper - Question (20 Jul 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: My Lords, one problem gambler is of course one too many, but the vast majority gamble safely. Will the Minister make sure that any affordability checks do not force customers to provide intrusive personal information such as pay slips and bank statements? Will he also tell us what modelling DCMS has done on requiring customers to consent to companies accessing private financial data? That...

Gambling Industry: Gambling Reforms - Question (17 May 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: My Lords, the vast majority of people gamble responsibly, and their harmless pastime supports 120,000 jobs in an industry paying £4.5 billion in tax and contributing £7.7 billion to the economy, so of course the Minister has got to consider the impact that new legislation might have on the public finances. While one problem gambler is one too many, should it not also be borne in mind that...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (16 May 2022)

Lord Sarfraz: ..., particularly in early-stage battery technologies. The United Kingdom has been blessed with industry pioneers: Frederick Bremer built the country’s first four-wheeled petrol engine car; Herbert Austin, a Member of your Lordships’ House, led the UK in capturing global market share; Michael Stanley Whittingham won a Nobel Prize for the development of lithium-ion batteries in this...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: My Lords, it is a pleasure and privilege to follow the excellent speech of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, and to be speaking in this debate. I start by saying that of course it is possible to be concerned about the impact of immigration without being racist, but the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Green, was not about pressures on schools and hospitals in poorer parts of the country....

Ukraine Update - Statement (27 Apr 2022)

Baroness Goldie: My Lords, first, I say again to the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, and the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, how much I appreciate the tone of their contributions. As I have observed before, it is extremely important that the tremendous contribution coming from the United Kingdom to support Ukraine is seen externally as an absolutely united endeavour. I express my appreciation to both the noble Lord and...

English Football: Independent Regulator - Question (25 Apr 2022)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I hope that the noble Lord’s ministerial colleagues will have heard the strength of feeling in this House about the need to legislate quickly and to include something in the Queen’s Speech. I understand that the Minister cannot give an answer now. I accept the very welcome commitment in the response published today, but what assurance can the Minister give that the excellent...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Exports: Arts (25 Apr 2022)

Mike Freer: Last Autumn, the Department for International Trade (DIT) published the refreshed Export Strategy with an action-led 12-point plan to help exporters, including those in the creative industries to thrive in the global market. This includes initiatives such as the Export Support Service (ESS), the UK Export Academy, UK Export Finance, the pilot UK Tradeshow programme, and International Trade...

Physical Education (23 Mar 2022)

Edward Timpson: ...was responsible for school sports as Children’s Minister was from programmes in the inner cities where children do not always have access to other facilities. The children there were gaining so many of the elements, which other children take for granted, that sport, physical activity and—the precursor to that—good physical education can bring to their lives. It is not only about...

Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve (3 Mar 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for their strong support for the sanctions more broadly and specifically for the measures that we are debating today. I say from the outset that I agree totally with the noble Lord, Lord Fox. Existing laws and processes should be fully leveraged to ensure that those actions that have been taken can be fully applied rather than our just waiting for new...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: DNACPR Decisions (22 Feb 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Kamall on 31 January (HL5607), how they ensure that there is a consistent approach at different hospitals and by different clinicians in cases where do not resuscitate notices are issued when a patient and their family have said they do not agree to such an order.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Assets (3 Feb 2022)

Jeremy Quin: Within the Ministry of Defence’s Annual Accounts 2020-21, an entry was listed as an advanced notification valued at £1.4 billion. Advanced Notifications are cases where formal sign-off cannot take place until all the work necessary to establish the validity and the exact amount of the loss has been concluded. The value of an advance notification is the best estimate and may change when the...

Russia: Sanctions - Statement (1 Feb 2022)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I put on record my appreciation for the Minister telephoning yesterday and alerting me to the Statement. He is courteous and approachable, and it is very much appreciated. I hope that his overseas visit was a success. However, as the noble Lord indicated, a telephone meeting with President Putin was postponed and a maskless Foreign Secretary contracted Covid and was unable to...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: DNACPR Decisions (31 Jan 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether (1) doctors, or (2) other hospital staff, are able to impose a do not resuscitate notice when a patient and their family have said they do not agree to such an order.

Foreign Interference: Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 - Private Notice Question (19 Jan 2022)

Lord Austin of Dudley: My Lords, I am really surprised that there is not much more outrage about this. It was reported years ago that this woman was giving huge amounts of money to a Front-Bencher of one of the parties. She has been hanging around No. 10 and was given an award by the Government. She has given money to the Lib Dems as well—she has been showering money all over the place, it seems—and she claims...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Victims of Terrorism (13 Dec 2021)

Jim Allister: For many of us, Christmas is a joyous family time, and understandably so. For some, particularly victims of terrorism, it is a time of remembrance, heartache and the empty chair at the dinner table. And yet some in our society think that it was not enough to make victims; it is also necessary to deride them and to visit great hurt upon them. We had another example of that in recent days...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2021)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords and join in the appreciation of the noble Lord, Lord Collins, in bringing this issue to the Chamber. As ever, I have listened carefully to all the comments and contributions. However, it would be remiss of me not to join others in welcoming the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Chelmsford to your Lordships’ House. As many noble Lords said, her...

Independent Fan-led Review of Football Governance - Commons Urgent Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Austin of Dudley: My Lords, there are not many things that England leads the world at, but the Premier League is one of them. One of the reasons for that is because it has attracted investment from right around the world. While I am no fan of the Saudi Arabian takeover of Newcastle, I think we have to be really cautious about anything which might undermine the Premier League’s success in future. I want to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Housing Stress: South Down (15 Nov 2021)

Colin McGrath: I rise to talk about the unprecedented levels of housing stress in South Down. On a day on which we rightly remember the forefather of the civil rights struggle and the champion of non-violence, Austin Currie, it is important to remember that the need for adequate housing and fair housing allocation was part of the groundwork that led to the civil rights campaign in the North. Having an...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Death of Austin Currie (15 Nov 2021)

Daniel McCrossan: On behalf of the SDLP, I, too, pay tribute to our dear friend and colleague Austin Currie and offer our deepest condolences to his wife, Annita, and to Estelle, Caitríona, Dualta, Austin and Emer. As Pat Hume was to John, Annita was Austin's rock. They were inseparable and journeyed through life together, side by side, taking on the challenges that faced them every day. Austin Currie was...

Giving Every Baby the Best Start in Life (9 Nov 2021)

Jim Shannon: I commend the hon. Members for Richmond Park (Sarah Olney) and for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) and, in particular, the right hon. Member for South Northamptonshire (Dame Andrea Leadsom) for sponsoring the debate. I know that the right hon. Lady has pursued this issue in the House for many years, and I am pleased to see the culmination of her championing of it in the...
