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

Lord Clement-Jones: I was going to deal with the noble Lord, Lord Maxton, later, but if he talks to the Government Digital Service about blockchain technologies, he might find that the technology in the Verify software will move into blockchain and therefore there will be no need for identity cards. I am very happy to give him a little instruction later. I entirely agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Lane-Fox,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (Continued) (29 Jun 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...continuation of territorial licensing of rights. We want to see initiatives such as Follow the Money being pursued at both UK and EU level. We want the UK to have an influential role in the development of the EU digital single market, including the new copyright directive. TV channels, too, must be able to continue to operate in the EU on the basis of origin in the UK, and UK content to...

Digital Economy Bill - Commons Reason and Amendments (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...answer the question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan, about whether it is really duplication or whether we have thrown something out with the Commons amendment. Let me end by saying that in the Digital Economy Bill we have not, in the words of my noble friend, taken up the floorboards today, but we have certainly given it a decent lick of paint in the process. It is not a very...

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

Lord Clement-Jones: ...certainly do not understand the paragraph that begins: “It is the Government’s view that the limited flexibility given in the Government’s amendments is necessary given rapid developments in the digital economy and to manage the inevitable period of transition”. Full cost recovery is full cost recovery—I cannot see any ambiguity or any need to be particularly...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response, but I am a little bit baffled. Here we are—and I am talking here particularly with reference to Amendment 116—discussing the Digital Economy Bill. It should be doing what it says on the tin. I put forward, in my name and in the name of my noble friend Lady Scott, who is the inspiration behind the amendment, something that would make...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Foster of Bath has referred to the draft directive on copyrights on the digital single market. Many authors, writers and artists welcome the provisions to balance the playing field for creators announced in that draft directive and would like to see them incorporated in our domestic law through the Digital Economy Bill. Some of my concerns about the timing of...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (2 Feb 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...a significant and much-valued part of many authors’ incomes, particularly for authors whose books are sold mainly to libraries and for those whose books are no longer in print but are still being read. While the Digital Economy Act 2010’s extension of PLR to audiobooks was a useful and overdue reform—I remember well when we passed it—the extension to on-site loans...

Brexit: Creative Industries - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...number of sectors in her speech but not the creative industries. Therefore, the purpose of those of us on these Benches today is to highlight in no uncertain terms the importance of these industries to our economy and our future, and the essential matters than must be safeguarded on Brexit. Lest we be accused of being miserable remoaners who cannot accept the outcome of the referendum, we...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...the Minister for his introduction, and for the meetings and briefings that he and his team arranged for us, including the material that the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, spoke about so glowingly. The digital economy in the UK is of huge importance to our future and the Bill needs to take full account of new developments and the pace of change, which the noble Lord, Lord Puttnam, and the...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...of Brexit. We need a steely determination to make the best of it and demonstrate to the no doubt overwhelmed Brexit unit how we can mitigate the risks and take the opportunities that arise. Our tech, digital and creative industries currently punch way above their weight globally. We now need to develop a blueprint to show how they can continue to thrive despite not being in the EU and...

Digital Skills (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...understandably, it has been underscored by considerable impatience. It is a shame that it has taken quite so long to debate this report. In his contribution the noble Lord, Lord Knight, emphasised that digital is not really a sector any more but all-pervasive. This is illustrated by a recent report by McKinsey, saying that some 50% of the world’s traded services is already digitised...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...I so much agree with my noble friend Lady Bonham-Carter in her rallying cry on the dangers of Brexit, and indeed with my noble friend Lord Foster. This is, of course, particularly in respect of the digital single market, but many other issues impact on the future prosperity of these industries. I share the concern of my noble friends and the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, that the Government...

Adult Education and Lifelong Learning — Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2016)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...her enormously. I want to focus on how our creative and tech industries can obtain, now and in the future, the skills that they need to develop and grow this increasingly important sector of the economy. Creative industries make a major contribution to the UK economy— £84 billion at the last count—but the vast majority of those businesses are small. Freelancing, too,...

Economy: Creative Industries — Motion to Take Note (18 Jun 2015)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...had received public funding because they were National or RSC productions. That is a very important point. We heard from the noble Lord, Lord Haskel, the noble Earl, Lord Clancarty, and my noble friend Lady Bonham-Carter that in the digital economy there is increasing convergence—symbiosis, really—between platform and content, between the tech sector and the creative industries...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (6th Day) (4 Jun 2015)

Lord Clement-Jones: ..., Lady Wheatcroft. I agree with much of what she said. These debates are often much more about what is not in the gracious Speech than what is in it, especially in the context of business and the economy. The UK’s creative industries have been one of the great success stories of the past five years. Significant policies benefiting these industries were developed during the coalition...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (10 Jun 2014)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...friend Lord Livingston because today, among other issues, I want to deal with the key question of start-ups in the tech and creative sector and what we need to do to ensure their success. I enjoyed the digital speech of the noble Lord, Lord Mitchell. According to official figures, the creative sector grew by almost 10% in 2012 and outperformed all other sectors of UK industry. It accounted...

Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill: Report (4 Mar 2014)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...need to be brought into effect, it is simply there for use if it is decided that that is the way forward. That would seem to cater for all unforeseen circumstances. In many items of government legislation—I think of the Digital Economy Act as merely one—quite often sections are not brought into effect where the Government, on mature reflection, believe it is right to not do so....

25th Anniversary of the World Wide Web — Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2014)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Lane-Fox, not only on opening this debate in such an inspiring way but on so successfully carrying out her role as the Government’s UK digital champion. The use of the internet in the UK climbs inexorably. We celebrated the universality of the web at the Olympic opening ceremony with Sir Tim Berners-Lee tweeting, “This is for...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Broadcasting: Digital Terrestrial Television (29 Aug 2013)

Lord Clement-Jones: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the value of digital terrestrial television to the United Kingdom economy.

Digital Strategy — Question (15 Jul 2013)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, as regards the Government’s digital strategy, the NAO has recently pointed out that there are slipping projections for superfast broadband to rural areas, a lack of competition and the need to change the procurement model. Are not these serious criticisms, and is not the plan not to implement the Digital Economy Act until 2015 another disappointment?
