Businesses and SMEs - Motion to Take Note (6 Jul 2017)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...in the UK. I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, that there is a consensus in the House on the importance of businesses, small firms in particular, because of their influence on their economy and broader prosperity. They are indeed the wealth creators. As my noble friend Lord Fraser said, their taxes fund our public services. They are the employers who create opportunities for a...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Second Reading (5 Jul 2017)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, my interest in the Bill stems from my membership of the Select Committee on Financial Exclusion, which reported in March this year. Our report dealt with financial exclusion; the Bill deals with financial inclusion; but, even so, it puts into effect some of the 22 recommendations to which the Minister referred. This is not really surprising, because it was an all-party committee and...

Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing Bill (3 Jul 2017)

Stephen Kerr: ...in the country are all mainstays of my constituency, not to mention the two whisky distilleries making great use of our prodigious rainfall and fertile soils. Our financial services sector and high-tech businesses in the digital economy all make up a diverse, high-value economy that contributes to the success of Stirling and of the Scottish and the UK economies. I am a graduate of the...

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

Lord O'Shaughnessy: ...make the NHS the safest health system in the world, helping people to make more informed financial decisions, correcting 70 years of policy failure to deliver a high-quality system of technical education, improving the quality and safety of our digital economy, and challenging the culture of indifference that ranks mental health below physical health. This is an agenda that will deliver a...

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

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...to think afresh about how they can help raise attainment in state schools. We will work with them to do just that. The core schools budget has been protected in real terms since 2010. It will rise from £41 billion in 2017-18 to more than £42 billion in 2019-20, with increasing pupil numbers. We recognise that schools are facing cost pressures, so we will continue to advise them...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: ...is a very alarming thought, and business is saying this to government. I am not yet convinced that government is listening. Business and the City warn of the hit to the service industries, particularly finance and the fast-growing digital economy if we leave the single market. Here I say, with great regret, to the noble Lord, Lord Lamont, that for the first time I have detected a hint of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: ...’s response to the committee’s report and sincerely hope that these measures will be incorporated in the Green Paper on internet safety and future legislation. This will be particularly important given the Government’s aspiration for the digital charter—that the UK should become, “the safest place in the world to be online”. My second concern is the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (26 Jun 2017)

Baroness Noakes: ...’s intent. The task of dealing with the legislation for our exit is so immense that there is not much time left for other legislation. That is a very good thing. Obviously, we have to have the Bills related to exiting the EU. The next priority must be to keep citizens safe from harm and I welcome in particular the proposed legislation on domestic violence and abuse, and on digital...

European Council - Statement (26 Jun 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ..., but instead he spoke about issues such as monitors on cars and number plate recognition. The Irish border is not like the Dartford tunnel. This has to be resolved as a matter of urgency. I want to pick up the issue of digital Europe. Is it not something of an irony that while the European Council was discussing an overarching approach to digital issues, including cybersecurity, our own...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (26 Jun 2017)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...to transform us into a country that creates more businesses selling services and goods around the world. I put services first, including financial services, because services now represent more than 80% of our economy and must be given the right degree of priority. We need to keep the economy firing and, while I agree with the Minister that we need balanced growth across the UK, we need to...

Outlawries Bill: Queen’s Speech (21 Jun 2017)

John Bercow: .... My Ministers are committed to working with Parliament, the devolved administrations, business and others to build the widest possible consensus on the country’s future outside the European Union. A bill will be introduced to repeal the European Communities Act and provide certainty for individuals and businesses. This will be complemented by legislation to ensure that the United...

...Union. My Ministers are committed to working with Parliament, the devolved Administrations, business and others to build the widest possible consensus on the country’s future outside the European Union.

Scottish Parliament: Crofting Commission (20 Jun 2017)

Fergus Ewing: ...his business background. Collectively, the commissioners bring a wealth of crofting talent to the Crofting Commission. I wish them well in their new roles and I look forward to engaging with them. In January of this year, Bill Barron was appointed chief executive of the Crofting Commission. Since then, the chief executive has rightly focused on the need to renew trust in the commission,...

Scottish Parliament: Protecting Workers’ Rights (31 May 2017)

Joan McAlpine: ...the reactionary policies of Westminster. The Trade Union Act 2016 was rejected by this Parliament. It attacks the fundamental rights of workers on these islands. In a bid to mitigate the effects of the bill, the Scottish Government has provided £2.2 million to support trade unions in accessing skills and lifelong learning opportunities, but some things cannot be fixed within the...

Scottish Parliament: Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (18 May 2017)

Gordon Lindhurst: ...was encouraging that Oliver Mundell spoke highly in his speech of PACE’s quick and efficient response at Penman Engineering in Dumfriesshire when that situation arose. We also heard from my colleague Bill Bowman in his erudite speech about the valuable assistance for those in the oil and gas industry. I hope that, in future cases throughout Scotland, others who are affected in this...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping Children Safe Online (11 May 2017)

Tavish Scott: ...online, and to the range of important work that many organisations—not least of which is Police Scotland—carry out. One of the action points that the Government is absolutely right to stress is the point that Mark McDonald made about the digital economy legislation. He will have to refresh the memory of members in the chamber. I believe that the bill became an act in the...

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...

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Apr 2017)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...the noble Lord, Lord Haskel, mentioned the importance of social measures and, as usual, made a number of interesting suggestions, including the point he often rightly makes about the importance of digital. On this occasion he not only referenced the workplace generally but the importance of getting it right in Whitehall. On care and the NHS, to which he referred and which was also tackled...
