Digital Exclusion (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Chw 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I know that time is very short, but I asked about the accountability of the cross-Whitehall group being set up. We know that it is going to meet only once every six months. One assumes that it will receive at each meeting a report of progress that has been made in a wide range of areas in the preceding six months. Could the Minister at least agree that copies of the report that will...

Digital Exclusion (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Chw 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness. Until very recently, I served on the committee. I pay tribute to her and all the other members, from whom I learned a great deal. I also join in her praise for the excellent staff who supported the committee. Today, I want to underscore the urgent need for more government action in this area. The committee produced some excellent...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 7 (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who took part in the debate, and of course to the Minister for his response, although I confess that I was somewhat disappointed with it. I asked a series of questions. Why were these issues not covered when we did trade deals with Australia and Japan? I got no answer to that. I asked why Australia did not change its ways of dealing with this matter...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 7 (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on his tour de force in responding to the large number of amendments in the last group. I hope that the mere two amendments in this group will make life a little easier for him. I have tabled these amendments merely to enable further debate on an issue that, frankly, was not satisfactorily resolved in Committee. The Minister is well aware that the...

BBC: Royal Charter - Question (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Foster of Bath: As the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, has implied, the biggest threat to the BBC’s news and current affairs is from this Government. After the level of cuts that we have already heard about and last year’s two-year freeze on the licence fee, the Government did at least promise an inflationary increase in the licence fee for this year. Will the Minister now acknowledge that the Government have...

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, in begging leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, I declare an interest as chairman of Peers for Gambling Reform.

Loot Boxes in Video Games - Question (13 Rha 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. There is a very long list of those calling for tougher action on loot boxes, which computer games players purchase to have a random chance of getting items to help them win—each an expensive gamble. The Government’s own research review showed a “consistent association between loot box use and problem gambling”, yet they still leave parents...

BBC Funding - Statement (12 Rha 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, many of us despair at the way in which the Government praise the BBC and yet constantly undermine it. In terms of future funding, is the Minister aware that your Lordships’ Select Committee looked at this and rejected a straightforward advertising funding model on the grounds that it would not provide enough funding for the BBC and would damage other public service broadcasters....

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Tach 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Lord, Lord Marland, who, like a number of previous speakers, have thanked the new Foreign Secretary for posts to which he appointed them. I, too, wish to say my grateful thanks to the new Foreign Secretary for posts to which he appointed me —but I remind him that, on one occasion, he specifically required me to work alongside Michael Gove. I...

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Tach 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I regret that the time constraints make it impossible to comment on the many valuable contributions we have already heard, not least that from the noble Viscount, who is always worth listening to. But I do want to pay tribute to our three maiden speakers. In thanking the noble Lord, Lord Butler, for his comments earlier, I declare my interest as chairman of Peers for Gambling...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A (23 Hyd 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I shall speak briefly to Motion D, which relates to rural issues, and my concern about the absence of rural issues in the Bill. Indeed, at Second Reading I made reference to this issue and pointed out the enormous disparities between urban and rural communities. I gave a range of examples from the way in which, for instance, housing costs are higher and yet wages are lower, to that...

Housing Crisis: Rural and Coastal Communities - Question for Short Debate (24 Gor 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: I apologise for interrupting, but before the Minister moves on, can she explain why the Government are thinking of introducing powers to enable local councils to control STLs but are not thinking of introducing similar powers to help councillors to control the number of second homes that do not become STLs?

Housing Crisis: Rural and Coastal Communities - Question for Short Debate (24 Gor 2023)

Lord Foster of Bath: I apologise, as I know that time is very short, but short-term lets is one issue. I have already welcomed what the Government have done. However, there are a quarter of a million second homes and growing that do not get converted into short-term lets and are not covered by the current proposals. What will be done about the growing number of second homes that will not become short-term lets?
