Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 12 (11 Mar 2024)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...issued Apple with a fine of €1.8 billion. The fine was increased due to Apple providing the Commission with misinformation during the investigation. Secondly, as many noble Lords have noted, the Digital Markets Act came into force in the EU. Thirdly, Apple took the decision last week to terminate Epic Games’s developer account, in retaliation for previous comments criticising Apple’s...

Digital Exclusion (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Feb 2024)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...thank the committee for its excellent report. As she said, it has been a busy week for it, and we all look forward to debating its recent report on large language models. Trying to catch up with digital developments is a never-ending process, and the theme of many noble Lords today—the noble Baroness, Lady Stowell, herself, the noble Baronesses, Lady Armstrong and Lady Harding, and the...

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Nov 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...the UK. Additionally, health devices suffer from a lack of development and commercialisation incentives. The UK has a number of existing funding and reimbursement systems, but none is tailored for digital health, which results in national reimbursement. What can DSIT do to encourage investment and innovation in this very important field? On cybersecurity, the G7 recognises that red...

Online Safety Bill - Report (2nd Day) (10 Jul 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...her contribution after a decade of campaigning so passionately on these issues. That includes pushing for age verification for pornographic content. We stood shoulder to shoulder on Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act, and she has carried that passion through into the debates on this Bill. My noble friend believes that the Minister’s amendments in particular are a huge step forward. She...

Creative Industries (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Jul 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...and concern to me. I became the Front-Bench spokesman for the creative industries for my party back in 2004, and we have seen enormous changes in those nearly 20 years, with the rise of the digital economy. I very much welcome what the committee said about that and the way in which the noble Baroness introduced its report in that context. So, although I welcome the creation of the new...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (25 Apr 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...go forward. There is technology to carry out age verification which is far more sophisticated than it ever was, so I very much look forward to that debate. We started that process in Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act. I was described as an internet villain for believing in age verification. I have not changed my view, but the debate will be very interesting. As regards the tail-end of the...

Public Service Broadcasting: BBC Centenary - Motion to Take Note ( 3 Nov 2022)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...I love the BBC. I think that it makes some of the best shows, if you look at what it has done this year from ‘I May Destroy You’ to ‘A Suitable Boy’. I back the idea of having a UK creative economy that is built on a number of different models from subscription through to licence. I would hate to see the BBC diminished in its impact in the UK.” Much the same could be said of the...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 45 (29 Jun 2022)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...hardest-to-reach areas, has not yet been fully allocated and that barely a penny has been spent. Then, we have all the access and evaluation amendments to the Electronic Communications Code and the Digital Economy Act 2017. Changes to the ECC were meant to do the trick; then, the Electronic Communications and Wireless Telegraphy (Amendment) (European Electronic Communications Code and EU...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill - Second Reading ( 6 Jun 2022)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...even been fully allocated, and not a penny has been spent. As the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, said, this is despite the increased importance of connectivity through the pandemic and the importance of digital exclusion, as the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, mentioned. The changes to the ECC in the Digital Economy Act 2017 were meant to do the trick. Then the electronic communications and wireless...

Age Assurance (Minimum Standards) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...cannot do better than quote the evidence from Barnardo’s to our Joint Select Committee to explain the frustration about what has been a long, winding and ultimately futile road over Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act, for which we waited for two years only to be told in 2019 that it was not going to be implemented. As Barnardo’s says: “The failure to enact the original age...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 May 2021)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I join in congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Fullbrook, on her maiden speech. It has been clear during the pandemic that we are increasingly dependent on digital technology and online solutions, but what is the reality in the digital economy of the Government’s levelling-up agenda? How are we mitigating digital online harms and digital exclusion? When we look at the risks and...

Online Harms Consultation - Statement (16 Dec 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...by the ICO? As the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, has mentioned, the one major fudge in the response is on age verification. The proposals do not meet the objectives of the original Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act. We were promised action when the response arrived, but we have a much watered-down proposal. Pornography is increasingly available and accessible to young people on more sites...

Trade Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 11 ( 7 Dec 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...growth and better government through the effective use of data. The section of the final impact assessment of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement—CEPA—between the UK and Japan on digital trade provisions says that the agreement contains: “Commitments to uphold world-leading standards of protection for individuals’ personal data, in line with the UK’s Data Protection...

Audiovisual Media Services (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (27 Nov 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...publicly consulting on more detailed regulatory guidance for VSPs” when online harms legislation will supersede the AVMS provisions? The Government, shamefully, have not implemented Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act. Will we not need age verification in order to comply with the directive? Or do the Government think age assurance is different in kind, as I asked in a Written Question...

Trade Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 71 (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...the US without Amazon having to seek advance permission. Similarly, AWS has the right to request customer data and provide support services from anywhere in the world. The Cabinet Office Government Digital Service team, which sets the Government’s digital policy, gives no guidance on where government data should be hosted. It simply states that all data categorised as official —the...

Trade Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Sep 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...to the Minister and to the right reverend Prelate. I share all the concerns expressed by my noble friends and many noble Lords about the lack of proper scrutiny provisions in this Bill. Global digital trade is increasingly important in the post-Covid world. Its rules must be established, however, through bilateral and multilateral trade agreements. Two areas where special scrutiny is...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (22 Jul 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...ground as a destination, and the new points-based system and Covid-19 are extremely likely to further damage recruitment. The creative and culture sector makes a major contribution to our lives and economy, but highly talented individuals in this sector are often paid salaries lower than the UK median. As regards the important tech sector, 13% of the UK’s digital tech workforce is...

Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 42 (20 Jul 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...and I tabled in Committee. I am delighted that we are joined by even heavier artillery on Report. In Committee, the noble Baroness, Lady Williams, said: “At present it is not possible to use a digital ID as proof of age for the purchase of alcohol in the UK because there is no industry standard for digital ID… Until such a standard is agreed, the current restrictions should be upheld....

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (13 Jul 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...is designed to give retailers the option of carrying out contactless age verification at a distance and automatically. It is supported not only by those representing and directly providing digital solutions, such as techUK, NCR and digital identity providers such as Yoti, but by the leaders of the key organisations involved in the retail trade, the British Retail Consortium and the...

Competition and Markets Authority - Question (25 Jun 2020)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Tyrie, and Professor Furman have clearly spelled out the challenges of the digital age. I heard what the Minister said on this, but do the Government intend to address these issues or will they continue to allow big tech to rampage across our economy in digital markets such as social media, e-commerce, search and online advertising? Will the Government set out...
