China: UK policy — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (7 May 2019)

Mark Field: ...was not set in aspic in 1945. We cannot simply hold firm, saying, “That’s it, that’s the rules-based order and we can say no more.” I am afraid that we cannot talk just about universal human rights without recognising the change in the world, the rise of China and India, and therefore the need to adapt and evolve the rules-based system with those two countries firmly in mind....

Online Harms White Paper - Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Haskel: ...purpose. We were then shown how the monitoring takes place. There are algorithms looking for harmful phrases, words or images, but apparently these can be easily fooled. Therefore, a major part is human monitoring, and we saw how one of the major platforms does this. It employs hundreds of people in Malaysia and the Philippines to scan posts for things such as decency, child abuse and...

Turkey: Treatment of Kurds (10 Apr 2019)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: ...he has been held in prison by the Turkish authorities. Öcalan was abducted in February 1999 from Nairobi, Kenya, where he was in exile, in an international clandestine operation involving Turkish intelligence agencies. He was transported to the island prison, where he has been kept in harsh solitary confinement. He has been forbidden to contact his lawyer since 2011—I met his lawyer a...

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 11 March (HL13990), whether the inspection teams covering juveniles as covert human intelligence sources also examine how policy is set regarding (1) payments to, (2) inducement of, and (3) frequency of use of, each juvenile.

Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland: Legacy Cases (26 Mar 2019)

Jeffrey M. Donaldson: ...to talk about Loughinisland in a little detail, from the perspective of a public representative, but I will not now go into the detail, because of your advice, Mr Owen, that we may stray into areas covered by the judicial review. I shall merely say that, to date, the findings of court proceedings have not eased my concern about the manner of the report, the findings that arise from the...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill: Obtaining or viewing material over the internet (22 Jan 2019)

Nick Thomas-Symonds: ...it has not, as some suggested, led to a situation in which one click could lead to an offence being committed. The Bill sets out clearly that anyone inadvertently clicking in that way would not be covered by the offence. I was concerned that the reasonable excuse defence mechanism had been put on to the face of the Bill, particularly in relation to journalists and academics, and I am...

Scottish Parliament: Life Sciences Sector (9 Jan 2019)

Ivan McKee: ...companies to access new markets, and to make sure that Scotland remains a location of choice for business investment and research in the sector. The strategy is clear and focused. Its four strands cover the following: innovation and commercialisation, through leveraging our academic excellence and growing the entrepreneurial mindset in the sector; sustainable production, through building...

Offensive Weapons Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (7 Jan 2019)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...1. However, for possession of corrosives in a public place an approach is needed that can be used operationally by the police. That is why Clause 6(9) defines a corrosive as, “capable of burning human skin by corrosion”. This definition would not capture most household cleaning products, as the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, posits, but it would cover some stronger drain cleaners and...

Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Paul Sweeney: ...having to sleep rough. The average life expectancy of those living on the streets is just 39. In Glasgow, the picture is that, in the last year, 5,300 people found themselves homeless. That figure covers just homeless applications, and does not include those who do not present themselves to apply as homeless. The council in Glasgow had a statutory duty to house 4,200 people. There are only...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Report (2nd Day) (17 Dec 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...consider that the power’s impact is proportionate to that purpose. In forming this view I have in mind that, beyond restricting the ability of an individual to engage in the specific activities covered by the proscription offences relating to the particular organisation which has been proscribed, the power does not otherwise impact on their ability to conduct a normal day-to-day life....

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

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...jihadism, a violent hybrid ideology, cherry picking from a broad range of religious and political influences. Both groups hold in common an absolute rejection of democracy, personal liberty and human rights, as well as a commitment to restoring a self-proclaimed “caliphate” and establishing a brutal and literalist interpretation of sharia law. They hold the West and its allies...

Investigatory Powers Tribunal Rules 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ..., I am pleased to be given the opportunity to debate the updates to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal Rules in the House this afternoon. Before I address the updates to the rules, I will briefly cover the background to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, as well as some key statistics. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal, which I will refer to as the tribunal from now on, was established...

Offensive Weapons Bill: Offence of threatening with an offensive weapon etc in a private place (28 Nov 2018)

Vicky Ford: ...proposed offence and remove the weapon from the owner. I am extremely pleased that the Bill extends the current offence of possessing such bladed articles or offensive weapons on school premises to cover all further education premises in England and Wales as well as schools. As I have said, it is this group of 16 to 18-year-olds in my constituency who have campaigned very hard since my...

European Union (Definition of Treaties) (Economic Partnership Agreements and Trade Agreement) (Eastern and Southern Africa States, Southern African Development Community States, Ghana and Ecuador) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (27 Nov 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...from this debate is that trade matters. It matters because it is so fundamental in shaping the world in which we live. Modern trade deals such as this are no longer simply about tariffs as they cover services as well as vast areas of public policy. Modern trade deals have to be constructed with proper consideration for the environment, workers’ rights and human rights if we are to live...

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

Earl Howe: ...has shifted and diversified, its methods have developed and it has been quick to exploit modern online technology. Both its extent and its severity have maintained an upwards trajectory, and the intelligence services consider that in recent years there has been an enduring shift in the nature of the threat, rather than just a spike. We can be under no illusion: the scale of the threat we...

Addictive Technology (23 Oct 2018)

Margot James: ...for the fairer taxation of technology companies as his first priority. If he does not get that, I am told that he will introduce a tax unilaterally in the United Kingdom. The health review will cover important and diverse issues, including cyber-bullying, online gaming, sleep problems and problematic internet use. I gather that the chief medical officer’s report will be published next...

Cyber Threats - Motion to Take Note (18 Oct 2018)

Viscount Waverley: ...problem, and the global response is not moving at the speed needed. “Planning for the worst” should be the mantra. A major challenge is that it is hard to investigate given the non-sharing of intelligence between agencies, the inconsistency of the approach of Interpol and the lack of direct communication between banks, for example, which all compound the problem. Another challenge is...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Juveniles) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Regret (16 Oct 2018)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former controller of covert human intelligence sources—CHISs—or police informants as they are otherwise known, although I have never controlled child CHISs. As I approach my fifth anniversary in this place, I hope that noble Lords will accept that tabling a regret Motion is not something I do lightly. The Government have introduced regulations that...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Second Reading (9 Oct 2018)

Lord Janvrin: ...Lord, Lord Tyrie, both accomplished parliamentarians who I am sure will contribute a huge amount both to this debate and in the future. I should begin by drawing attention to my membership of the Intelligence and Security Committee. That said, this Bill mainly concerns the work of the police and other criminal justice agencies, which are not directly scrutinised by the ISC. I am speaking...
