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

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...in 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.

Business of the House (11 Mar 2010)

David Heath: ...the episodes in which they were involved. We must make sure that we make proper provision for our veterans.

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...

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. Some of these have also referred to the question of attribution. UK law provides certain "moral rights", including that photographers and creators of other works may assert their...

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...

Digital Economy Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (1 Mar 2010)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, while I can agree with some of the sentiments expressed in the suggested new clause, I do not think that in practice it adds anything to the Bill. I listened carefully to my noble friend Lord Whitty. I can understand the use of a bit of hyperbole to make a case, but to say that we are moving straight into a protectionist regime and sanctions is a misconception and an unreasonable...

Legislation and Public Policy — Debate (25 Feb 2010)

Lord Puttnam: ...who has had the privilege of chairing two pre-legislative scrutiny processes, and I do not think that I fully appreciated how valuable they were until I recently went through the agonies of the Digital Economy Bill. If ever a Bill required pre-legislative scrutiny, that was it. Many hours have been spent in this Chamber-I would say many of them wasted hours-going through things which a...

Business of the House (25 Feb 2010)

Ian Cawsey: My right hon. and learned Friend is a supporter of the music industry, so she may share concerns about the slow progress of the Digital Economy Bill in the other place. Will she use her good offices to ensure that the House gets the opportunity to debate the matter, and that the Bill is given every opportunity to get on to the statute book before the election? I am only too aware that I must...
