King’s Speech (4th Day) - Debate (4th Day) (22 Jul 2024)

Lord Layard: ..., pay taxes and cease getting benefits. That is good for those with anxiety or depression, but there is no such service for the 1 million or so people suffering from addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling or from personality disorders. NICE also recommends psychological therapy for all these conditions, but it is simply not provided. A new service for these conditions would increase...

Scottish Parliament: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Jun 2024)

Monica Lennon: ...Scottish Government and the UK Government have undertaken and the approaches that Gillian Mackay has championed as we try to achieve a ban on single-use vapes.

I hope that, whatever happens after the election on 4 July, we will see cross-party and cross- Government working...

1. Questions to the First Minister: Gambling-related Harms (18 Jun 2024)

Vaughan Gething: I think the point about the proliferation of gambling is important—not just physical premises, but online—and how gambling can actually be advertised in a range of areas that are targeted at children and young people. A range of online games on phones and others often have gambling adverts through them. I can see them myself and the information that my much-more-new-world-savvy child is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: On-farm Investment (17 Jun 2024)

Michelle McIlveen: .... The reality of the issue is that, for a farmer, bringing an application could involve costs of between £10,000 and £30,000. With uncertainty and no clarity, such a spend is, in itself, a huge gamble on the part of the farm business. It has been well recognised that there have been considerable delays and uncertainty in the past seven years or so around agricultural planning...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Defective Premises Bill: Consideration Stage (11 Jun 2024)

Mark Durkan: ...into the "We'll bring another Bill in the future" basket. How many times were we caught with that one in the last mandate, which has led to less than satisfactory legislation on private tenancies, gambling and even licensing? I have been contacted by several constituents directly impacted by the issue. To date, their cries to government have fallen on deaf ears. Homeowners across the...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 May 2024)

Lord Watson of Wyre Forest: ...why this clause should be opposed. First, there is a convention that controversial policy should not be rushed through in the wash-up. We have done it before and came to regret it—I mention the Gambling Act 2005. Secondly, when it comes to media reform, we must be incredibly transparent. The public need to understand that, if we are going to concede to media barons—and let us not deny...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 83 (22 May 2024)

Lord Watson of Wyre Forest: ...to give full parliamentary scrutiny at all stages. I warn the Front Benches that the last time I remember Parliament deciding to interfere with regulatory matters in a wash-up was in 2005 with the Gambling Act, of which the noble Lord, Lord Foster of Bath, will be aware. Some 20 years later, we are still dealing with the consequences of that rushed-through legislation. There is a third...

Public Bill Committee: Football Governance Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 May 2024)

...to come under the independent regulator because we think it does make it an unfair competition. You are striving to reach the promised lands, so you will throw everything at it, and it makes owners gamble and spend recklessly, which is what has happened to Reading and many other teams. It is an unfair competition because you are pushing yourself so far to get there. We were relegated...

Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 May 2024)

Lord Cromwell: ...a first-time buyer, a local authority or another private landlord—although that seems a circular expectation. Not only is this dismissive of those who provide rental accommodation, it is a pure gamble. Depending on which statistics you choose, some say that there will be a decrease in rental accommodation—this is borne out by the discussions I have just referred to—and others say...
