Amendment of the Law (29 Mar 2010)

Greg Hands: I certainly will, and I thank my hon. Friend for the intervention. I also acknowledge the work of my hon. Friend the Member for Leominster (Bill Wiggin), who made some very strong points about cider at Environment, Food and Rural Affairs questions last Thursday.

Bill Wiggin: ..., stocking 18 types of cider all produced within 15 miles. This is locally produced cider being sold in a local pub to local people. That is the sort of model of sustainability that supports rural economies. It is something that the Government say should be encouraged, yet as soon as they get the opportunity, they torpedo all those good intentions with this savage increase in duty. That...

Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill: Second Reading (24 Mar 2010)

Lord Gordon of Strathblane: My Lords, I hope to get the support of your Lordships' House by undershooting my time by at least a third. As the Minister said in opening the debate, this is a major Bill. As has been instanced in every speech so far, there is a great deal that most people would support in almost every clause, but I am afraid that I must side with the general view of the House that it is simply not right to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ways and Means — Financial Statement (24 Mar 2010)

Alistair Darling: ...and difficult choices, and to take unprecedented actions. We had to decide whether to intervene to rescue the financial system or to stand on the sidelines, and whether we should support the economy, business and families, or let the recession take its course.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Lobbying and Paid Advocacy (22 Mar 2010)

John Grogan: The noble Lord Whitty recently attacked the influence of lobbying companies representing producer interests in securing important amendments to the Digital Economy Bill.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Internet: Filtering (22 Mar 2010)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...impact. However, we do not currently have similar plans to introduce mandatory blocking of such content.

Business of the House (18 Mar 2010)

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Third Reading (15 Mar 2010)

Lord Howarth of Newport: the amendment does not command complete assent from the other side of the House, but it none the less represents an advance. This is an instance of the excellent quality of scrutiny that the Digital Economy Bill has received in your Lordships' House. I expect that, in a very few minutes, we shall send it to another place, but I do not have the same confidence that it will receive the...

It has had three months of detailed scrutiny and it completes its proceedings there next...

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (8 Mar 2010)

the Earl of Erroll: ...1988, but that is not going to happen in the near future. Whoever becomes the next Government will not tackle the issue because they will probably feel that they have tackled enough of it in the Digital Economy Bill. However, the Bill is not nearly sufficient to begin to touch the surface of what we should be doing in a digital age. Unfortunately I do not think anything else will be done...

Arrangement of Business — Announcement (8 Mar 2010)

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Photographs: Copyright (5 Mar 2010)

David Lammy: holding answer 4 March 2010 I have recently received a number of representations from photographers about Clause 42 of the Digital Economy Bill which covers the treatment of Orphan Works and Extended Licensing.

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (3 Mar 2010)

Lord Maxton: I was not going to speak on this amendment, but the debate has become about the rights and wrongs of secondary legislation, rather than what the Bill is about, namely the digital economy. With due respect to the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, on whose committee I served, he is a Conservative ex-Minister and I spent 18 years myself in opposition in the other place. I have now had to listen to...
