Petition - A509 Development Ashton Grove: EU Data Protection Rules (12 Dec 2016)

Matthew Hancock: I was about to come on to that issue, which was raised in the Digital Economy Bill Committee.

Businesses: Rights and Responsibilities - Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2016)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, on securing this interesting debate. I have often found myself in opposition to him on various Bills and committees over the years but I have noticed a rather worrying tendency to agree more and more with what he says—I hope that is reciprocated—but I am sure it is because we are both squash players and...

Un International Day: Violence Against Women (8 Dec 2016)

Maria Miller: this area, and not only that but help and support for victims through the revenge pornography helpline. I welcome the new guidance that has been issued to schools on sexting.

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Review of the impact of the Act on pricing, research and development, and innovation (6 Dec 2016)

Philip Dunne: ...move was always in the same direction. My concern is that the amount could decline between one year and the next; it may not always go up—certainly not up in a straight line. Separately from the Bill, the Government are taking action to secure the UK’s future as an attractive place for the life sciences sector and to support faster patient access to medical innovations. I have...

Young People: Self-Harm - Question (6 Dec 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: Unquestionably, there is more that can be done. Some of those sites, certainly some of the pornographic sites, are being addressed in the Digital Economy Bill that is going through the House at the moment. But we are working with the national council and the Samaritans, which in turn are talking to people like Google and YouTube and the digital providers to see what we can do in this area. We...

Online Safety - Question for Short Debate (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Shields: ...the Government’s position and our broader approach to ensuring children’s safety online in our connected society.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Phones (29 Nov 2016)

Matthew Hancock: ...across the UK, especially in those areas where coverage is poor, is a priority for the Government. The licence obligations arising from the December 2014 agreement have locked in investment of £5 billion and are delivering improved coverage across the UK. To support industry, our regulatory reforms to mobile planning laws in England, which came into force on 24 November, and the...

Digital Economy Bill: Interpretation of this Chapter (28 Nov 2016)

Calum Kerr: I should like to add to the positive vibes coming from both Front Benchers and join them in thanking the Clerks. I particularly want to thank those in the Public Bill Office, who have been fantastic in dealing with someone who is still relatively new to all this and sometimes does not get things right first time. Officials in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and in Ofcom have also...

Digital Economy Bill: Code of practice: accessibility to on-demand audiovisual services for people with disabilities affecting hearing and/or sight (28 Nov 2016)

Pete Wishart: relation to my recorded work. I would say that this has been a good evening. The concessions we have heard from the Minister are most definitely to be welcomed. I am a veteran of the former Digital Economy Bill. Looking around the Chamber, I can see a few people who still bear the scars of that experience. I must say—this is my first contribution on this Digital Economy...

...403(1A)(b) of the Education Act 1996, add— “(c) they learn about the risks and dangers of internet pornography, and the legal age requirement to access internet pornography under Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act 2017.””—(Kevin Brennan.)

Digital Economy Bill: Age-verification regulator’s power to direct internet service providers to block access to material (28 Nov 2016)

John Whittingdale: take this as a precedent for saying, “It is fine to block content that we do not particularly like,” I think that it is a dangerous road to go down. I hope that the measures originally in the Bill will prove sufficient, that operators will introduce age verification and that we will pause before taking the next step and introducing ISP blocking. To that extent, I rather hope...
