Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (13 Dec 2017)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: ...the noble Lord that the questions of an individual’s control over their data and the value of that data are worthy of debate and, as I said earlier, we will have to wrestle with them for years to come as the digital economy evolves.

Short and Holiday-Let Accommodation (Notification of Local Authorities) (13 Dec 2017)

Karen Buck: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require householders to notify local authorities of an intention to register accommodation for short or holiday lets; and for connected purposes.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued) (11 Dec 2017)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: ...each of the committee’s recommendations, and none of our decisions have been reached lightly. A theme that noble Lords have heard me express previously is the extraordinary pace of change in the digital and data economy. I am very conscious that the Bill needs to provide a framework for the constant evolutions and developments in how we use and apply data. It must support rather than...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Jack Brereton: ...attempt to say, the latest purchasing managers’ index for manufacturing activity hit an encouraging 51-month high.

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Kidron, for her months—indeed, years—of work to ensure that the rights and safety of children are protected online.

The Government agree that these amendments do...

Better Regulation - Motion to Take Note (7 Dec 2017)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ..., but the exact cause or causes have not been proved. Likely culprits identified by informed observers include poor education and skills, inadequate infrastructure, insufficient housing and R&D, and the impact of digital on revenue and national income statistics.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill - Third Reading (6 Dec 2017)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, I shall respond to the typically generous comments from the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, and the noble Baroness, Lady Pinnock, regarding the Bill in general.

Video Games: Domestic Violence and Child Abuse - Question (6 Dec 2017)

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: My Lords, does the Minister agree that because of amendments introduced in your Lordships’ House to the Digital Economy Bill in March, it will now be perfectly possible for adults using the internet to access very realistic animated computer-generated images of child sex abuse and pornographic violence against women? Does he further agree that it was a terrible mistake to introduce this...

Youth Employment — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Damian Hinds: ..., whatever their background, valuable work experience and vocational training. We have already made significant progress on youth unemployment. As my hon. Friend the Member for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock (Bill Grant) reminded us, youth unemployment is down by 422,000 since 2010. Youth unemployment is now at a record low: just 4.8% of under-25s are both unemployed and not in full-time...

Trade and Customs Policy - Motion to Take Note (5 Dec 2017)

Lord Price: ...over the current EU third-party trade agreements, establishing new trade agreements, supporting DExEU in its work on a new trade deal with the EU, and putting in place a UK trade remedies regime. The trade Bill and the customs Bill will provide the necessary framework for the department to carry out that work, and I am wholly supportive of the Government’s approach. The Bills bring...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, the UK economy is forecast to grow by 1.5% in 2017, and we still have debts of £1.7 trillion.

In those eight months since the last Budget, our productivity growth forecasts have been drastically reduced and, in eight months, the OBR expects the UK to...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: ...a trade deal and other deals, which will help us earn and pay it off. Technology is really important if this country is to remain competitive with our foreign competitors and our productivity is to increase. Thankfully, this country has experienced huge growth in digital innovation. However, we have a shortfall of about 40,000 people with the necessary skills in science, technology,...

Ways and Means - Financial Statementways and Means (22 Nov 2017)

Philip Hammond: ..., with inflation peaking at 3% in this quarter before falling back towards target over the next year. I reaffirm the remit for the independent Monetary Policy Committee and its 2% CPI inflation target. We took over an economy with the highest budget deficit in our peacetime history. Since then, thanks to the hard work of the British people, that deficit has been shrinking and next year...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (15 Nov 2017)

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, it has been a short debate—I am beginning to think that debates are in inverse size to a Bill, as is perhaps true in this case—but a fascinating one, and I am glad to be the first of the wind-up speakers. When the Minister opened this discussion of the Bill, he concentrated first on praising the Government for their action on tax avoidance. If he feels that action has...
