Online Filter Bubbles: Misinformation and Disinformation — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (16 Jan 2024)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...next UK general election. The Minister knows that, despite the passing of the Online Safety Act, many of the provisions in the legislation will not be in place for quite some time. In the meantime, Twitter—now X—has given the green light for Donald Trump’s return. Political misinformation has increased since Twitter became X, and right-wing extremists continue to gain political...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Dec 2023)

Claire Hanna: ...that was confirmed by the permanent secretary—and they know that it relies on a simplification by this Government that applies only if people have never met or spoken to an asylum seeker. The cost of this gimmick is running into the hundreds of millions of pounds—money that should have been used to end the chaos of processing in the Home Office or to go after the people traffickers...

Media Bill (21 Nov 2023)

Miriam Cates: ...are watching it on TV, streaming it on demand or seeing it on their phones—we have to apply the same principle to pornography. A third of the internet is pornography; Pornhub has more users than Twitter, Instagram, Netflix, Pinterest, Zoom and LinkedIn put together. It is a $100 million industry, and algorithms draw users into more and more extreme material. The Government’s own...

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Nov 2023)

Baroness Sheehan: ...to speak of future tax receipts funding future investment in renewables, which will bring cheaper energy bills at some point in the future. What do the Government say to people suffering from the cost of living crisis today? “Not enough” is the answer. The damage that the Government have done is so great that the measures the Minister outlined at the outset are not enough for the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 191A ( 4 Sep 2023)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...eradication. I will make just three brief points. First, on solar panels on a suitable new homes and buildings, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, for pursuing this for so long. If I look on Twitter, the question I am asked most often is, “Why do new homes not have solar panels?” It seems such a no-brainer to the public, and they cannot understand why. Of course, the answer to...

Building Safety and Social Housing ( 6 Jul 2023)

Andrew Slaughter: .... I will deal with just three issues in detail. First, there is the causes of fires. The cause of the Grenfell fire was what I am holding in my hand: a crimp, which is a small piece of wiring that costs a few pence. As I am sure people will guess, I am not an expert in these matters, so I am grateful to Richard Farthing, chairman of the Hammersmith Society, who has a background in...

UK Economy: Growth, Inflation and Productivity - Motion to Take Note (29 Jun 2023)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: ...is a huge rift between how things work and how most people see them working. The second area is what Caplan calls the make-work fallacy. Most people insist on seeing jobs as a benefit rather than a cost, or rather, they do not understand that jobs are a means to an end, the end being greater prosperity, hence the constant pressure on Governments to create jobs, as though that is a good...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 136 (14 Jun 2023)

Lord Swire: ...population of this country is many millions more. I have even read one report alleging that the real population of this country is not 68 million but nearer to 80 million. Of course, if you look on Twitter, you need not necessarily believe all those conspiracies. My point is not to quibble about the size but to demand that the Government and their various agencies do more to find out the...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pension Credit: Publicity (18 May 2023)

Laura Trott: ...Pension Credit through their channels. This led to Pension Credit news bulletins on ITV, mentions by financial influencer Martin Lewis and also led to Pension Credit trending in the top 20 on Twitter. In June, we will again encourage media outlets and partners to join us in promoting Pension Credit. A key message of the campaign has been to highlight that receiving even a small amount...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill (17 May 2023)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...a significant impact on both businesses and in terms of stifled opportunities for innovation and consumers, who are now paying the price of online scams and fraud becoming a persistent risk. The cost of this Government’s inaction is significant. That is why Labour broadly welcomes this Bill and will support its progression. If pro-competition legislation is done correctly, the Bill could...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 97 (16 May 2023)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: ...today. It is needed, as I have said, because of the many strands of abuse that are perpetuated online. However, compliance with the new terms of service to protect women and girls is not cheap. In cost- driven organisations, the temptation will be to relax standards as time goes by, which we have seen in the past in the cases of Facebook and Twitter. The operators’ feet must be held to...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (12th Day): Amendment 290 ( 3 May 2023)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...to find a nursery space in the first place. At the moment, it is not at all clear where the extra places will come from. Sam Freedman, an author and political columnist, posted the following on Twitter: “we haven’t been given a figure for the new hourly rate but based on the overall cost for 3+4 year olds (£288m for 2024/5) it looks way too low. We proposed adding in £2bn to make it...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 29 ( 2 May 2023)

Baroness Ritchie of Downpatrick: ...way is a sensible approach to legislation and regulation. For the most part, regulation and safeguards should ensure that a duty is not onerous or that it does not place a disproportionate cost on the service provider that may make their business unviable. While that is the general principle, proportionality is not an appropriate consideration for all policy decisions. In the offline...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Social Media (27 Apr 2023)

Layla Moran: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether there was a cost to the public purse relating to the FCDO cartoons published on his official Twitter account on the event of his visit to Japan for the G7 Foreign Ministers' meeting.

Backbench Business: Landmine Awareness — [Mr David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Apr 2023)

Wendy Morton: ...Minister is nodding. My point is in relation to humanitarian aid getting through to the civilians who need it. A few years ago, we had many a debate on Syria in this House. It was good to notice on Twitter this morning that HALO has just announced that it has completed mechanical clearance training in north-west Syria—an important and exciting milestone that means that HALO is now able...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (19 Apr 2023)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: ...the legislation could inadvertently give those same corporates more control of what UK citizens read and view. Another related irony is that the Bill was, no doubt, designed with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google, TikTok and WhatsApp in mind. However, as the Bill’s own impact assessment notes, 80% of impacted entities have fewer than 10 employees. Many sites, from Wikipedia to Mumsnet,...

Worker Protection (Amendment of Equality Act 2010) Bill - Second Reading (24 Mar 2023)

the Earl of Leicester: ...—within those businesses, I have probably 250 employees. I am extremely concerned about the Bill, which will have grave implications for freedom of speech as well as imposing huge compliance costs on Britain’s 1.5 million businesses. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is the most momentous and far-reaching piece of legislation currently before Parliament—yet it has received...

Business of the House (23 Mar 2023)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...Leader of the House allow MPs to decide whether the Prime Minister has kept his promise, by having a debate on the principle of accountability? Will the Government take responsibility for the Tory cost of living crisis? Just yesterday, inflation jumped again to 10.4%. Prices have been soaring for months; food has gone up even faster, at 18%. Families are unable to book a holiday or start...

Public Order Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (14 Mar 2023)

Lord Paddick: ...take it out at this point. On the issue of giving notice being problematic, the Metropolitan Police gives notice of where and when Section 60 stop and search provisions are in place. It does so via Twitter; I have seen it do so. It might also do it by other means that I do not know about, but it is possible, and what the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, is suggesting is therefore workable and...

Scottish Parliament: International Women’s Day 2023 ( 8 Mar 2023)

Gillian Martin: ...will say that there is no silver bullet and that it is complicated and too difficult, but I disagree. At the heart of improving women’s lives and prospects is the open goal of childcare. The cost and accessibility of childcare prices women out of work; it forces mature women, as grandparents, into early retirement to help their daughters go back to work; and it leads to huge pension...
