NHS Long Term Plan - Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: A plan for personalised and predictive systems of healthcare linking together genomics, big data, artificial intelligence and digitisation—is this real or just fantasy? This is the NHS, which recently said no fax machines by 2020, yet the plan trumpets that by 2024 all secondary healthcare organisations will be digitised. This statement may in time be found to be a different type of...

Local Authorities: Essential Services - Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: I thank noble Lords who took part in this thoughtful, powerful and useful debate today. It showed the impact that local government has on people’s lives. Whether it be loos, transport, libraries, social care, housing or in some cases even Shakespeare’s memory, all are important. I hope that the Government and all noble Lords will take away from the debate four issues, and I shall make...

Local Authorities: Essential Services - Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I start by drawing the attention of the House to my interests, as laid out in the register, as vice-president of the Local Government Association and as an elected member of Sheffield City Council. We have the luxury of three hours for this debate, which is good on such an important issue, and I have the added luxury of 15 minutes. I promise noble Lords that I will not take that...

Central Courts IT System - Statement (23 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, less than three years ago there was a whole-Whitehall review of the £500 million contracts given to Atos for government IT systems. This is another potential catastrophe with an IT system that Atos has implemented in government. In the light of that, what government-wide review will now be done of Atos’s ability to provide IT services for government on such a scale?

Homophobic Hate Crime - Question (22 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they plan to take in response to the BBC investigation of homophobic hate crimes.

Homophobic Hate Crime - Question (22 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: I thank the Minister for that reply. She will be aware that hate crimes based on sexual orientation or gender identity are not considered to be aggravated offences, which means that they carry a lower maximum sentence than other hate crimes committed on the basis of either race or faith. This sends an extremely hurtful and damaging message that anti-LGBT attacks are less serious than those...

Homophobic Hate Crime - Question (22 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, the Minister answered very well a question I did not quite put. My question was about it not being an aggravated crime. That takes legislation so that a different maximum sentence can be laid. In the 2017 manifesto, the Conservatives committed to making it an aggravated crime, so when and how will legislation be brought forward?

Immigration: Removal Centres - Question (14 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, Stonewall and the UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group brought out a report called No Safe Refuge, which shows that those claiming asylum based on their sexual identity or gender identity who are put in detention suffer from prejudice, physical and sometimes sexual abuse. What is the Minister doing to ensure that this does not happen? Will she follow best practice from across the...

NHS Long-term Plan - Statement (7 Jan 2019)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I echo the words of other noble Lords who have raised the extremely good work that the noble Lord, Lord O’Shaughnessy, did during his time as a Minister. I always found him helpful and diligent when I raised health issues with him. Therefore, I am sure that I speak on behalf of the House when I thank him and wish him well. The plan talks about genomics, artificial intelligence and...

Future Immigration - Statement (19 Dec 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, the Cavendish Coalition of health and care providers says it is extremely concerned that these new visa proposals will not allow the number of care staff needed to sustain services. These are the providers of services commenting on the White Paper today. Such staff are not on the labour shortage list— physios, paramedics and other professionals allied to medicine. Can the Minister...

Sexual Health Services - Question (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, the importance of PrEP has been mentioned by noble Lords. The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV has shown in its survey that in the past year, in 25% of local areas there was reduced access to PrEP and in 11% of areas no access at all. What are the Government doing to ensure equity of access to PrEP across the country?

Government Vision on Prevention - Statement (6 Nov 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, while I welcome the Statement, particularly around prevention, and the use of AI, technology and data, there are two issues that come to mind. My first question is this: what regime will there be on issues related to the ethics of AI and data use? This is quite important, and there needs to be some form of regime and regulation about what the health service does there. The second...

Devolution: Sheffield City Region - Question (5 Nov 2018)

Lord Scriven: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what action they are taking to ensure that the Sheffield City Region Devolution Deal comes to fruition.

Devolution: Sheffield City Region - Question (5 Nov 2018)

Lord Scriven: I thank the Minister for that Answer and I bring to the House’s attention my interest declared in the register as a member of Sheffield City Council. It is clear that there is stalemate: the four local authority leaders in South Yorkshire cannot agree a way forward. Despite the fact that the order for the election has been through this House, the order for the powers and the money have not....

NHS: Healthcare Data - Motion to Take Note (6 Sep 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Freyberg, for initiating this timely and important debate. The issue of data and healthcare will be vital as the moral, legal and ethical issues come more to the fore. I am also pleased to follow the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath. I was a rookie health service trainee when the noble Lord was the first chief executive of the NHS Confederation....

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, I recommend all noble Lords to go on a skim-reading course, because I got to page 100. Stephen Shaw gets to the crux of this issue on page 100. It is not about individual items but about the culture of the estate and the culture of the Home Office that needs to change. In particular, he asks across the estate, whether it be private or public sector employees who are involved,...

Rendition of UK Citizens - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, eight days ago, the Human Rights and Democracy report from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “It is the long-standing policy of the UK to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances as a matter of principle”. When agreeing to send people abroad to stand trial in a country where the Government have not given a categorical assurance that the death penalty will not be...

Railways: Transport for the North - Question (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Scriven: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have any plans to grant powers to Transport for the North to manage all Northern railway infrastructure.

Railways: Transport for the North - Question (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Scriven: I thank the noble Lord for his Answer. Does he agree with many people in the north that with regular cancellations, two-carriage trains, dangerously busy trains at peak times, reductions in service and overall poor management and treatment of customers, the franchise given to Arriva Northern needs to be either split up or taken away altogether?

Distributed Ledger Technologies - Question (18 Jul 2018)

Lord Scriven: My Lords, one issue blocking distributed ledger technologies internationally is the jurisdiction of data. What is the Government’s thinking and working on the jurisdiction of data for this type of technology?
