Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Committee (4th Day) (20 Jan 2010)

the Earl of Erroll: This amendment illustrates why we should have started by looking at the whole issue of copyright in the digital age, rather than starting with an attack on people breaching copyright in the digital age. We have gone about things the wrong way round. Copyright is a complicated thing. I did not realise until a week ago that apparently, with regard to what the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, has just...

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I am proposing this amendment to Clause 7 to make a necessary change to the Bill, and it follows what my noble friend Lord Young has said on the previous amendment. New Section 124D as drafted has the effect of requiring Ofcom to have either approved or made by order a code covering the initial obligations code within six months of new Sections 124A and 124B coming into force.

Video Recordings Bill: Second Reading (18 Jan 2010)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his comprehensive introduction of the Bill. We all have the same purpose today. As a result of the then Government failing to notify the European Commission of certain technical aspects-the classification and labelling requirements-of the Video Recordings Act 1984, we now know that the Act is void-I assume we can use that word-in respect of those technical...

Business (18 Jan 2010)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, it may be helpful to the House if I say a few words about today's business. The next business will be the Second Reading of the Video Recordings Bill; we will then take Committee stage of the Bill as last business tonight. The deadline for tabling amendments to appear on the Marshalled List will be 6 pm; after that deadline has passed, a message will be displayed on the annunciator...

Siôn Simon: We have proposed a number of regulatory changes in the Draft Digital Economy Bill and the draft Community Radio (Amendment) Order 2010, in particular in the regulation of localness, which will support the local radio sector by providing greater business certainty and the opportunity to reduce costs.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Royal Mail (14 Jan 2010)

Peter Luff: Job security for Royal Mail's employees, and indeed the security of its competitors' employees, is threatened by the continuing regulatory uncertainty in the sector. Will the Government use the Digital Economy Bill to introduce the regulatory change aspects in the Postal Services Bill, because those particular issues are not related to the wider issues of the future ownership of Royal Mail?

Local Newspapers — [Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] (13 Jan 2010)

Ed Vaizey: build up across different platforms-newspaper, web, radio and local TV. We welcomed the announcement in November that Ofcom will recommend that relaxation, and we would support that in the Digital Economy Bill. I am working up to our exciting proposals for a network of ultra-local television. That is what I call leadership. We have out for consultation Roger Parry's document "Creating...

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (12 Jan 2010)

the Earl of Erroll: ...later, which talk about the number of infringements as opposed to the value of the infringements. An awful lot of figures are being thrown around by various interested parties, for example, that X billion pounds are lost per year to the industry. Some of it I doubt, because I do not think that the people would have spent the money on it; some of it is probably real. There are also figures...

Bill Presented — Sustainable Energy (Local Action) bill: Video Recordings (Exemption from Classification) (12 Jan 2010)

Andrew Dismore: I beg to move, That leave be given to introduce a Bill to extend the criteria under which music and sports video works and documentaries lose their exemption from classification. Although we passed-or perhaps I should say re-passed-the Video Recordings Bill last week, for technical reasons of urgency it was not practical to propose amendments at that stage. However, some small but highly...

Local Radio (12 Jan 2010)

Dan Rogerson: ...FM, do not necessarily feel that they have had the opportunity to get their points across at an early stage. That is why they are now contacting local Members to look at some of the issues when the Digital Economy Bill is debated on the Floor of the House. What sort of consultations are taking place with local radio stations?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Legislative Consent Motion (11 Jan 2010)

Lord Wallace Browne: I support the motion that the application of the provisions of the Video Recordings Bill be extended to Northern Ireland. The subject matter of the Bill is not controversial as it is substantially a re-enactment of existing legislation, and there are no cost implications for Northern Ireland. Nevertheless, the system of classification for video films and video games is of the utmost...
