Sky-Fox Update - Statement (23 Jan 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...is central to having a fair and plural press in this country. However, the test itself is flawed and outdated and needs to be revised.

Willie Coffey: ...about the European charter of fundamental rights, which will be left behind when the UK leaves the European Union; and, if I have time, I will make a few comments on the single market and the digital single market.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Third Reading (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, I will just slip in for a couple of minutes in the light of the Minister’s very shrewd appraisal of the progress on the Bill.

We on these Benches...

Brexit: Deal or No Deal (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2018)

Baroness Ludford: ...ability to travel and connect. The report well documents the costs and horrific disruption of an abrupt, chaotic Brexit, with many specific examples.

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...use this opportunity to provide further reassurance that it is unnecessary.

Friend, to whom I pay tribute.

Tackling Financial Exclusion (Financial Exclusion Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Dec 2017)

Lord Holmes of Richmond: ...by the Government. What are the Minister’s thoughts on the 14 recommendations still to be covered in the government response? I shall limit my comments to the three Ds of duty of care, data and digital and technology. It seemed pretty clear throughout our inquiry that duty of care would be an eminently good thing for all financial services and financial institutions to adopt. We received...

Short and Holiday-Let Accommodation (Notification of Local Authorities) (13 Dec 2017)

Karen Buck: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require householders to notify local authorities of an intention to register accommodation for short or holiday lets; and for connected purposes.

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued) (11 Dec 2017)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: ...each of the committee’s recommendations, and none of our decisions have been reached lightly.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Jack Brereton: ...say, the latest purchasing managers’ index for manufacturing activity hit an encouraging 51-month high.
