Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: Will my noble friend forgive me? I am still thinking about what he said about the Court of Appeal cases. It seems he has changed his mind in the last hour and I wonder what has propelled him to do that.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, in the unavoidable absence of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, I shall speak to Amendments 2, 4, and 6, and to the question that Clause 3 stands part. I shall briefly touch on Amendment 1, which intended to include in the convictions to be overturned by this Bill those convictions that were secured by the Department for Work and Pensions. Although I have concerns about...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare an interest as a member of the Horizon Compensation Advisory Board, although I think it has now been renamed the Horizon redress advisory board. It is a genuine honour to be able to follow a speech such as that from the noble and learned Lord, Lord Burnett. I am grateful for what he said and for the immense amount of work that he has put into this most terrible of...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: World Food Programme (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the World Food Programme's ability to scale up its humanitarian operation in Gaza.

Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the Horizon Compensation Advisory Board. I am grateful to my noble friend the Minister, and to the Lord Chancellor, for securing a slot so quickly to right the consequences of the PACCAR judgment. I am impressed and surprised at the speed with which they have managed to do this. I am also grateful to my noble friend Lord Sandhurst, the noble...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Nimrod Aircraft: Accidents (18 Maw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by The Earl of Minto on 27 November 2023 (HL200), what assessment they have made of the accuracy of report of the Board of Inquiry into the Nimrod crash on 2 September 1995, taking into consideration the rules pertaining to such boards of inquiry at that time, and its finding that Flight Lieutenant Dominic Gilbert was to blame...

Post Office Legislation - Statement (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the Horizon Compensation Advisory Board. I pay tribute to my noble friend the Minister; to Kevin Hollinrake, the Minister in another place; to his impressive team of civil servants; to the Government in general; to Alan Bates; to ITV; and especially to Alex Jennings, of course. But, before this turns into an Oscars speech, we must acknowledge...

Defence Acquisition Reform - Statement ( 7 Maw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interests as set out in the register. It is nearly 30 years since I became the Minister for Defence Procurement, so ably succeeded by the noble Lord, Lord Bach, who I see in his place—and the questions do not change. New threats arise as old threats remain, and sometimes get worse. Our dependence on technology is greater now than it ever has been; therefore, our...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Compensation ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: To ask His Majesty's Government on which department's accounts their commitment to fund compensation for sub-postmasters affected by issues arising from the Horizon software system appears.

Horizon Scandal: Psychological Support Services - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the Horizon Compensation Advisory Board. I am troubled by the Answer my noble friend has given, because how can a family member, as opposed to the sub-postmaster themselves, claim for compensation or psychological help? Many of these families have broken up. Does my noble friend agree that the mere fact that there may be a lot of family members...

Post Office Horizon: Compensation and Legislation - Statement (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the advisory board, which is now meeting not exactly in continuous session but every few days. The Post Office itself is under investigation by the police. Is it not quite inappropriate for the Post Office to express any view as to the correctness of overturning convictions and is it not quite wrong, coming back to the point made by the noble...

Post Office Horizon: Compensation and Legislation - Statement (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: May I come back on a point that was raised by the noble Lord, Lord Browne, about the declaration that is to be signed by those whose convictions are overturned? I am not sure that I understand this declaration. If you have signed accounts which you know to be wrong and yet you have had your conviction for false accounting overturned by the Court of Appeal on the basis that it is an affront to...

Post Office: Executive Remuneration - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, either the Post Office is an independent arm’s-length organisation, or it is one for which the Government are fully responsible. Does my noble friend agree that the Post Office Horizon scandal shows that never again should Ministers refuse to answer questions relating to a body in which they own all the shares?

Post Office Governance and Horizon Compensation Schemes - Statement (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the Horizon compensation advisory board. Of course, if you are a sub-postmaster, you do not really care who said what to who. There are two questions that a sub-postmaster would be interested in: when will the compensation be paid and when will the convictions be overturned? As for when the compensation will be paid, I would like to pick up a...

Computer Systems: Independent Testing - Question (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, the prosecutorial guidance referred to just now by my noble friend leaves computer professionals in a position of uncertainty. Do they not need certainty as to the shape of the law?

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System ( 8 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: To ask His Majesty's Government whether in incurring potential liabilities on the group litigation against Alan Bates and others which concluded in 2019, the Post Office required authorisation from the Government; and if so, what authorisation was needed and from whom; and whether such authorisation was granted.

Post Office Appointments: Ministerial Responsibility - Question ( 7 Chw 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, in an arm’s-length organisation, to whom in practice is the chief executive accountable? Is it the department’s Permanent Secretary?

Post Office (Horizon System) Compensation Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: I would not want anyone to be confused in an already confusing situation. The £600,000 is not actually relevant to Lee Castleton because it is a sum that applies only to those who have overturned convictions. Lee Castleton was sued rather than prosecuted. I am sure he will get a lot more than that, which will include the legal costs that he had to pay and also all the issues about the...

Post Office (Horizon System) Compensation Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend the Minister for his opening remarks, not least for their tone, which this House has always got right. I am also grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti—except for her suggestion that this should be called the Arbuthnot Act. She made the very important point about blanket exoneration. We must not force these traumatised people back before...

Post Office (Horizon System) Compensation Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom: I feel a little talked out. That too, your Lordships will be pleased to hear, will shorten this speech dramatically. This Bill is with us at the request of the chairman of the public inquiry to ensure that the Government do not run out of time to pay compensation or, as Alan Bates has often said, to give redress. He says that it is redress rather than compensation because this is money that...
