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...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Databases (12 Mar 2018)

Oliver Dowden: ...rising public expectations and the availability and potential of new technology to deliver better services at lower cost to taxpayers.

International Women’s Day: Progress on Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note (8 Mar 2018)

Baroness Thornton: ..., which was the main organisation that collected the views of British women to take to CEDAW. The noble Baroness is right—so what are we going to do about that? The noble Baroness, Lady Barker, was quite right and has my support in bringing forward the gender recognition Bill. As she said, it will be an important moment for a group which is small but has a very hard time. I have...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Rachel Reeves: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way and I welcome the Bill, which will do a great deal to reduce the energy prices paid by consumers. On the point about helping the most vulnerable customers, one issue that we have is that data about who those customers are is not shared with energy companies. The Cabinet Office already has a consultation on showing this data as part of the Digital...

Bill Presented: Data Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: This has been quite a useful debate for rehearsing the arguments and divisions that I suspect we will have when the Bill moves upstairs to Committee. Some of our debate, particularly in the speeches made by Opposition Members, has even been about data protection. It is probably fair that I start with the note of unity that the shadow Secretary of State, my hon. Friend the Member for West...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Parking: Data Protection (1 Mar 2018)

Margot James: ...Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is responsible for regulating compliance with data protection legislation. The ICO is an independent body sponsored within government by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Feb 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...for not being able to be present for the debate, but in no way is that a reflection on her enthusiasm for the amendment—quite the reverse. The amendment proposes a new clause be inserted into the Bill to incorporate Article 174, Title XVIII of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union into domestic law. This would require the Secretary of State to lay before Parliament,...

Access to Banking Services (27 Feb 2018)

Ben Lake: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about access by customers, in particular those in rural areas, to banking services; to make provision for community banking hubs; to review access to banking services through the Post Office network; and for connected purposes. In an otherwise fraught and divided political climate, few issues unify Opposition and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2018)

Baroness Ludford: ...now. The relevance of the Charter of Fundamental Rights is why the trade body of the British tech industry, techUK, has urged the retention of the charter in domestic law. It is interested mainly in the commercial exchange of data for the digital economy but the same applies to the exchange of personal data for the purposes of law enforcement. The tech sector is very well aware of the...

Victoria Atkins: ..., and perpetrators of grossly offensive, obscene or menacing behaviour. We have committed to strengthening our response to domestic abuse through the publication of a draft Domestic Abuse Bill, and we are working with partners across Government on our domestic abuse consultation to ensure it is as robust and thorough as possible. The consultation will be launched shortly. Through the...

Scottish Parliament: Population Needs and Migration Policy (22 Feb 2018)

Mairi Gougeon: ...of the UK rather than just at the UK as a whole. We can see the increasing pressure on key sectors in Scotland and what the impact of a bad immigration policy will be on our agriculture, public services and wider economy. It is expected to cost us more than £10 billion by 2040. I wish that Ross Greer’s amendment had been accepted, because he tried to make a valuable point about...

Volunteering - Question for Short Debate (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: .... Civil society has developed significantly over the past decade, becoming more diverse than ever before. We have seen the rise of new ways to fundraise, a greater focus on grass-roots initiatives, increasingly flexible ways to volunteer, the rise of social media and digital and an ever growing inclusive economy. For this reason, the Minister for Civil Society, Tracey Crouch, has announced...

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Feb 2018)

Bruce Crawford: I am pleased to speak in the stage 3 debate on the Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill, because I sincerely believe that this is perhaps the most important budget-setting day since the advent of devolution almost 19 years ago. I am very pleased that the SNP Government has submitted to Parliament a budget that sets the tone for the type of nation that we want to be, and which clearly outlines the...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate Resolution 2018-19 (20 Feb 2018)

Derek Mackay: ...travel scheme; we will invest more—above the rate of inflation—in the NHS; and we will protect free personal care. We will also build 50,000 new affordable homes; we will invest in digital to grow our economy; we will support a range of people through specific targeted interventions; and we will invest more in police and fire services. Those are the investments that this budget...

Scottish Parliament: Islands (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (8 Feb 2018)

Humza Yousaf: I am delighted to open the stage 1 debate on the Islands (Scotland) Bill. It is fair to say that being transport minister does not make me the most popular person on the planet, but my colleagues and members from across the parties envy the islands part of my portfolio. I am envied when I travel across Scotland, seeing some of the most stunning scenery and the most beautiful places in which...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (7 Feb 2018)

...tide, be agreed to. Motion, as amended, agreed to, That the Parliament acknowledges and shares the increasing recognition of the cumulative damage that plastics are doing to the environment and economy, not just domestically but also globally; agrees that there is a need for an evidence-based approach to tackle the problem; welcomes the actions that the Scottish Government and others have...

Data Protection and Privacy - Question (5 Feb 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: I do not believe that that is the case although I cannot give an absolute guarantee because I am not sure of my facts. One thing that the Digital Economy Bill did was to outline what Governments can do with their own data. They can use it within government. The general data protection regulation makes the issue of consent much more explicit. Consent has to be genuine consent.

Independent Radio Production - Question for Short Debate (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ..., including that of the Minister, as well as that of my previous apprentice and now fully fledged shadow Minister for DCMS, my noble friend Lord Griffiths of Burry Port. In our debate on the Digital Economy Bill last year, discussed in an earlier debate today, I tabled an amendment on the future of the UK radio production sector. It attracted only one speaker apart from myself and the...

Particulars of Proposed Designation of Age-Verification Regulator - Motion to Approve (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: We debated this extensively during the passage of the Digital Economy Bill. Parliament agreed with the very clear definition of extreme pornography, which is based on the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. That is what it will opine on. The primary legislation—the Digital Economy Act—requires the Secretary of State to consult on the impact and effectiveness of the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Jan 2018)

Lord Blencathra: ...and customs union, with all the dire consequences that would entail. Of course, the Treasury in its May 2016 dodgy dossier also said that there would be an immediate loss of 500,000 jobs and the economy would crash into recession. As John Longworth, writing in the paper on Monday, said, either the Treasury economic experts got their model hopelessly wrong or they were deliberately lying. I...
