Digital Economy Bill - Third Reading (5 Apr 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...Clancarty, from the Cross Benches.

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill - Commons Reason (5 Apr 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...the size of the House of Lords, I just say, as somebody who was Leader of the House of Commons at the time, that if his great party had supported the programme Motion on the House of Lords Reform Bill, the House of Lords would be a lot smaller than it is now. His party bears some responsibility for the failure to get the numbers down to a more manageable level. I will put that on one side...

Jesse Norman: ...for the ECO scheme, which is proposed to run from April 2017 to the end of September 2018, will improve the targeting rate to 34%. We do not believe that is enough.

Short and Holiday-Let Accommodation (Notification of Local Authorities) (21 Mar 2017)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...was right then and those words stand the test again today. This framework has underpinned video regulation since and was adopted into the regulation of video on demand in 2014. It was totally logical that it should be included in this Bill when it was introduced in the other place. In parenthesis, and before saying anything further, I commend the Government for taking on the regulation of...
