Public Bill Committee: Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords]: International road transport permits (22 May 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...going to Northern Ireland, would it need a permit, and if so, would that not create a border across the Irish sea? That might sound quite detailed, but it is fundamental to the understanding of the Bill and, for example, the number of permits to be issued, and is therefore informative to today’s discussion. We need to understand how permits will be issued according to each...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (17 May 2018)

Baroness Worthington: ...is a lot we can learn from there. Subsections (11) to (14) of this rather lengthy amendment seek to introduce a concept of charging infrastructure rights—wayleaves, essentially—that is intended to mirror those granted under the Digital Economy Act 2017 for telecommunications. This is a significant issue for the country. We need to get this right. As we recognised when we...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Committee (1st Day) (continued) (9 May 2018)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, the co-pilot is in charge of this group of amendments. As my noble friend Lord Lucas said, our transport networks are becoming increasingly digital. The regulation of the collection, sharing, use and deletion of data will be vital. Several stakeholders, including the insurance industry, have highlighted the need to ensure access to automated vehicle data, not least because it will...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Minor and consequential amendments (9 May 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. What a great pleasure this is. The Bill gives people more power and control over their lives online while supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in the digital age. It will deliver real benefits across the country and help our businesses to compete and trade abroad. Strong data protection laws give customers confidence in the...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Other enactments (9 May 2018)

...to the code of practice issued under each of the following provisions— (a) section 19AC of the Registration Service Act 1953 (code of practice about disclosure of information by civil registration officials); (b) section 43 of the Digital Economy Act 2017 (code of practice about disclosure of information to improve public service delivery); (c) section 52 of that Act (code of...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: The significance of the Bill and the importance of data and data protection to the economy and the whole of society is reflected in this debate. The fact that amendments have been tabled on Report through the work of three different departmental Select Committees shows how wide-ranging this issue is. I principally want to talk about amendments 20 and 21, which stand in my name and those of...

Scottish Parliament: Digital Connectivity (3 May 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Communications is a very important part of the world economy and every aspect of the world. The first great step forward in digital communications took place 2,000 years ago, when the Romans introduced wig-wag, which was a hilltop system that carried a signal from Londinium to Roma and back in the course of a single day. That replaced the three months that it would have taken, by sea and by...

Artificial Intelligence - Statement (26 Apr 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...created? To narrow my question down, will the PhDs mentioned be part of the independent review of higher education, which is looking primarily at undergraduate courses but needs to look also at masters and PhD students? We have looked at digital infrastructure time and again in this House, and each time the Minister has come to the Dispatch Box and talked about what progress has been made...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Data Protection (19 Apr 2018)

Margot James: ...(including sharing or selling) personal data. The Data Protection Act 1998 has served us well and placed the UK at the front of global data protection standards. With the new Data Protection Bill, Government are modernising the data protection laws in the UK to make them fit for purpose for our increasingly digital economy and society. It will set new standards for protecting general...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Vicky Ford: ...this industrial strategy, and particularly its focus on innovation. I am proud to serve on the Science and Technology Committee. It is science and research that delivers the innovation that drives a modern economy, and we are a world leader in science and research. Four of our universities are in the world’s top 10, one in six of the world’s top research papers are written...

UK Digital and Tech Industries — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (18 Apr 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...-ran in the cyber age, the Government will need to make a number of important policy reforms and changes of direction, three of which I will touch on very quickly. First, we have to ensure that the digital economy in this country has a much more robust foundation of trust. Trust is the foundation of trade; it always has been and always will be. However, as we have seen in the debate...

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Kevin Brennan: ...some serious points about the importance of the creative industries. Quite rightly, he spoke about the film tax relief in which he played a big part, as well as the importance of protecting the single digital market post-Brexit. I look forward to hearing what the Minister has to say about that. I also congratulate my hon. Friend—I shall call him that— the Member for Perth and...

Business of the House (29 Mar 2018)

Valerie Vaz: ...8212;not like Essex? Will she condemn that leaflet, just as her colleague, the hon. Member for Grantham and Stamford (Nick Boles), has done? I am going to keep asking until we get it: when will the Trade Bill, the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill and the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill return on Report? And I am going to ask again about the statutory instrument on postgraduate...

[Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Peter Dowd: ..., which have successfully harnessed globalisation to maximise profits while minimising the tax they are required to pay. People have indicated that today. According to HMRC, multinationals avoided as much as £5.8 billion last year in corporation tax alone. That represents a 50% increase from the Government’s previous forecast. The growing discrepancy, as hon. Members have...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Application of Equality Act (Services and public functions) (22 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: Exactly. My hon. Friend makes such a good point. The challenge with the way that Her Majesty’s Government have approached the Bill is that they have taken a particular problem—that we are heading for the exit door of Europe, so we had better ensure that we get a data-sharing agreement in place, or it will be curtains for Britain’s services exports—and said,...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Bill of Data Rights in the Digital Environment (22 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...one shortly, about the right to be treated fairly by algorithms. That is obviously incredibly important. The Government have given a nod in that direction, so the Minister will probably say a little about their digital charter. On the different sides of the House, there are different philosophies on rights. The Conservative party traditionally defends rights to do with negative freedoms,...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Communications Act 2003: Public Service Broadcasters (22 Mar 2018)

Graham Jones: I raised the issue of the electronic programming guide with the right hon. Gentleman during the Committee stage of the Digital Economy Bill. It is vital for the guide to have prominence. Amazon, Netflix and all the other platforms have no electronic programming guides, and even Sky has reduced its guide. Although I raised the matter, the Government have done nothing. They are doing very...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Unlawful obtaining etc of personal data (20 Mar 2018)

Margot James: ...is unnecessary. It is telling that there is no such defence in section 55 of the 1998 Act, and we are not aware of any problems with its operation. Hon. Members mentioned section 58 of the Digital Economy Act 2017. That is a difficult comparison. Unlike clauses 170 and 171, section 58 does not contain a straightforward public interest defence, so, unlike the offences in the Bill, there may...

Northern Ireland Budget (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill (20 Mar 2018)

Andrew Murrison: ...is a very busy office, and my Select Committee was very pleased indeed to be able to meet Kieran Donnelly recently in Belfast to take evidence on the work of his department. It will be reporting on digital transformation in Northern Ireland, welfare reform in Northern Ireland, speeding up avoidable delays in the criminal justice system, financial health of schools and the social investment...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Indeed. A compulsory code of conduct in some areas is in the Bill, especially with respect to the treatment of children. We have a statutory code of conduct in the Digital Economy Act 2017. This whole area is one where we have to ensure that the liberal values, to support freedom but not the freedom to harm others, that we apply through legislation to many other parts of our lives are...
