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...

Burma: [Day 2] (15 Mar 2018)

Bill Esterson: ...they are not only doing nothing, but have no idea what they even should be doing. Instead of filling two days of parliamentary time on this general debate, the Government should be bringing back the Trade Bill and the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill and introducing the other Bills that they promised, including those on fisheries and agriculture. Yesterday, the Minister for Trade Policy,...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Bates: ...on a Britain that continues to grow, to create jobs and to outperform expectations. It is the next step in the plan set out in the Autumn Budget to build a Britain that is fit for the future and an economy that works for everyone. Our economy has been resilient, beating expectations and growing for five years straight—this is a fundamental strength which can help build the economy to...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: National security and defence exemption (15 Mar 2018)

Louise Haigh: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Mr Streeter. I think it was about 18 months ago that we were in this very room, debating the Bill that became the Digital Economy Act 2017. We discussed at length the trade-off between the rights of data subjects, privacy, transparency and the need for Government access to data. In that context we were debating the rights of...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: The applied GDPR and the applied Chapter 2 (15 Mar 2018)

Darren Jones: ...in the European Union that we in Britain are proud about the influence we had in drafting the general data protection regulation, which is a world-leading set of laws and rules for the future of our digital economy, and we continue to want to play a part in that, to help lead the conversation in the world and at European Union level. In co-operation with our friends in Europe, we seek to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...have set the scene in factual terms regarding the importance of the Good Friday agreement for the nature of the integration of the island of Ireland and the codependence that is significant for its economy, not just at the border but throughout the island, and the level of disturbance that they are anticipating as a result of Brexit and the level of commitment that the Government have to...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Protection of personal data (13 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...British law. It is beyond dispute that both sides of the House share the objective of ensuring friction-free trade with our neighbour, the European Union, over the years to come. The role of this Bill in enabling that trade is of fundamental significance. Something like 70% of our exports of goods and services rely on the smooth transfer of data, and we know that the European data economy...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...retail, health, information technology and financial services in particular—that the free flow of data between ourselves and the EU continues post Brexit with minimum disruption. With an increasingly digital economy, this is critical for international trade. TechUK, TheCityUK, the ABI, our own European Affairs Sub-Committee and the UK Information Commissioner herself have all...
