Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I am delighted that today we have a final opportunity to scrutinise the Digital Economy Bill and, I hope, get it on to the statute book before the Dissolution of Parliament. The Bill has been widely supported during its passage and tackles head-on some serious issues that many in this House feel strongly about. It will help us to extend digital connectivity, protect children from online...

Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill - Second Reading (6 Apr 2017)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, I have made space for this Bill by withdrawing the previous one. The penny dropped for me about the difficulties of a missing person’s property effectively being left ownerless when I heard the father of a woman who was missing explain the problems. He has heard me say this before, but he is a solicitor and must know how to handle bureaucracy, so this is a real problem. Peter...

Digital Economy Bill - Report (2nd Day) (20 Mar 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...—in effect, the current definition of “prohibited material”. The debate on this has been strong on both sides, and it is an interesting idea that we have considered. However, our aim with this Bill, as has been said by several noble Lords, is to protect children from accessing pornographic material. We are creating parity between the offline and the online worlds in...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Monks: ...risky. The UK’s economy, including Scotland’s, will be in the eye of consequential political storms, buffeted by multiple cross-currents and uncertainties. How robust is our economy going to be? Bill Clinton’s advisers famously said: “It’s the economy, stupid”, that motivates voters. Not at the moment, it is not. Politics is overriding economics; hearts...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (2nd Day) (28 Feb 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...over Clause 13. I listened with some interest to the debate we just had as a former councillor of the south London Borough of Lambeth; that was a very long time ago. We now move on to Part 2 of the Bill and amendments to the compulsory purchase provisions. Noble Lords will have noted that there are a large number of government amendments. These are mainly to ensure that the temporary...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Taylor of Goss Moor: My Lords, I should first draw attention to the register of interests. I am a director of some development companies. I also run my own consultancy around this area and work in advising government, and have done so for successive Governments. I work with students who are doing planning courses for both the University of Cambridge and the University of Plymouth. For the first part of what I...

Bill Presented: National Citizen Service Bill [Lords] (16 Jan 2017)

Tim Loughton: I am proud not only to be part of the debate and to see this Bill come of age—and the NCS comes of age with the Bill, just as the NCS is a coming-of-age project—but of the small part I played in its genesis. I was there back in 2005 when it was a germ of an idea from the then Prime Minister. He spoke to a number of youth leaders and tasked Paul Oginsky, who later became David...

Savings (Government Contributions) Bill - Second Reading (12 Jan 2017)

Lord Sharkey: My Lords, the provisions in the Bill appear at first glance to be quite straightforward. The Bill sets up the mechanisms to create lifetime ISAs and a Help to Save scheme. As the noble Baroness, Lady Drake, noted, the total cost to government in 2020-21 of the LISA is estimated at £830 million. The total cost to government of the Help to Save scheme in the same period would be £70...

Circle Housing and Orchard Village (12 Jan 2017)

Jon Cruddas: ...exists, having merged only last month with Affinity Sutton to form Clarion Housing Group, the country’s largest housing association with nearly 130,000 homes and half a million tenants, and with plans to build another 50,000 homes. Orchard Village was formerly known as the Mardyke Estate. Back in 2007, the London Borough of Havering balloted residents to find out whether they agreed...

Social Mobility Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...months ago, we have seen much activity of direct relevance to it. We have had the government response; the Sainsbury review and the Government’s response to that; the Technical and Further Education Bill, which will arrive in your Lordships’ House next month; the latest State of the Nation report by the Social Mobility Commission; and, just yesterday, the revelation—that...

Health and Social Care - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2016)

Lord Harris of Haringey: ...of the Association of Community Health Councils”. The junior doctor then went behind the curtain. Of course, it is a fallacy that you cannot hear what is going on on the other side of that curtain. I could hear him phoning the consultant: “I think you should come down, sir. He says he’s the director of the Association of Community Health Councils”. That, of course,...

Scottish Parliament: Draft Budget 2017-18 (15 Dec 2016)

Derek Mackay: ...growth and the impact of a low oil price on our oil and gas sector. Unemployment, although it varies from month to month, is down over the past year, and employment is higher than it was before the 2008 financial crisis. The United Kingdom Government’s plans for a hard Brexit represent a key risk to Scotland’s economy. The fall in the pound is pushing up inflation. That puts...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord Fox: ...and tried to make the best of it, but there is no gloss shiny enough to hide the terrible prospects for public finances by the end of this Parliament because by the end of this Parliament a £220 billion Brexit-induced debt black hole looms for our country, and this from a Government who at the last election stood on economic probity. It is hard to see how the return of real inflation...

National Citizen Service Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Wei: My Lords, I speak today with a tremendous sense of delight at the arrival of this Bill and its reception so far. I declare an interest as one of those who helped early on to establish the groundwork for what became the Challenge Network charity before the 2010 election, creating one of the original pilots of the National Citizen Service programme where I was involved from as early as 2008,...

Airport Capacity: National Health Service Provision (Local Consultation) (25 Oct 2016)

Victoria Prentis: I do find it encouraging to have paternal, maternal and, indeed, filial support in this place, Mr Speaker. I beg to move, That leave be given for to bring in a bill to make provision about mandatory local consultation in relation to changes in services proposed by NHS Trusts and healthcare commissioning authorities; and for connected purposes. The Bill is the result of our experience in...

Brexit: Environmental and Climate Change Policy - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2016)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...in a better state than we found it. I say to the noble Baroness, Lady Young, that we want to enhance not maintain it—we want to go beyond that—which is why we are developing a 25-year environment plan to deliver this. This plan will be key to informing our approach to environmental policy in the longer term. I am very pleased that my noble friend Lord Selborne rightly...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (12 Oct 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...all noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate. I will speak to both Amendments 1 and 113 in this group. The noble Lord, Lord Whitty, mentioned the spirit in which discussions on the Bill have taken place, and I support his sentiment. From the Government’s perspective there has been a willingness to listen and to take on board comments that have been received, as well as to...

Wales Bill: Minor and Consequential Amendments (12 Sep 2016)

...proclamations”. (3) In subsection (3), at the end insert “and all royal proclamations under section 4(2) and section 5(4), which have passed under the Welsh Seal”.”. This amendment inserts a paragraph into Schedule 5 of the Bill to allow Orders in Council to be used to make provision about the form, content and publication of proclamations under the provisions...

Wales Bill: Apprenticeship levy (12 Sep 2016)

Guto Bebb: ...amendments in the group, before turning to the amendments tabled by Opposition Members. Most of the Government amendments deal with technical changes to the energy and environment provisions in the Bill; I will discuss those first. Clause 36 delivers the St David’s Day agreement on the devolution of energy consents, giving the Assembly and Welsh Ministers a substantially greater...

Local Government Reform — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (6 Sep 2016)

Jim Shannon: ...in finding a better way forward. That was what we found when we made the changes in Northern Ireland. The super-councils, as they were named, were to have a number of new powers in such areas as planning, local roads, regeneration—the preparation of my council area’s regeneration plans has concluded, and they are awaiting endorsement and a way forward—and the fostering of...
