Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 1 (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, as the Minister knows, we are keen that the Bill should be on the statute book, as is the whole of the media world, which has been telling us, even as late as today, “Please, can you make sure that it goes through?” These Benches certainly support that. It a shame that we have not had more time on the Bill. As the noble Baroness, Lady Bonham-Carter, just said, there is a lot of...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Third Reading: Motion (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Marks, has absolutely nailed it, and I absolutely agree with him about the Arbitration Bill, although my pay grade is much too low to do anything about any of those things. This is one of those times when we are allowed to say “Thank you” and “Didn’t we do well?” Thank goodness we have this Bill and that it did not fall with the call of the general...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I welcome this amendment. Congratulations all round are due to the noble Baronesses, Lady Morgan, Lady Finn and Lady Brinton, and the Ministers. I take issue with what the noble Lord, Lord Russell, said: negotiating with your own party is every bit as challenging as negotiating from outside—I speak from experience—but this is a very good example of the point of the House of...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 88 (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I rise to speak to my Amendment 91. The noble Lord, Lord Foster, outlined in his usual articulate manner the issues we are looking at in this group. We created Ofcom, and it is a hugely important regulator with a growing portfolio of responsibilities. This is a good time to look at whether it is being properly and adequately resourced, and supported in a way consistent with the...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: This has been an interesting debate because it is about future-proofing and the stage at which you need to undertake things. The Minister may need to think about taking powers that then may or may not be used. I thank him for his explanation and, on that basis, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 77 withdrawn. Amendments 78 to 80 not moved. Clause 48 agreed. Amendment 81 not...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: The last group was fascinating and, in a way, this debate moves us on to how to future-proof access to radio stations. I will also speak to Amendment 78, to which I have added my name, and Amendment 81 from my noble friend Lord Bassam. In the course of discussions with stakeholders in preparation for the Bill, it emerged that there is an issue about radio selection services. It was expressed...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156ZB (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, from these Benches I express irritation that we have these in the Bill at all. We have spent the last two or three months working across the House, improving and building a new framework for victims. It is, let us just say, very puzzling that these are in the Bill.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 153A (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I am very glad that we have managed to sort out which are the right amendments in the right place through a collective effort across your Lordships’ House. Noble Lords will recall a discussion on this matter in Committee, which is presumably what has led to these government amendments. Like the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas, I welcome them, but his questions about the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 153A (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: I have to say that I decided to ignore those and will discuss them in the next group, because they were in the wrong place.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 132 (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I shall be brief. My name is on this amendment, and indeed, I spoke to similar amendments in Committee. It was a great pleasure to do so, but I regarded myself, as I said at the time, as a substitute for my noble friend Lady Royall, who indeed has the most tireless record of championing this cause and taking every opportunity to remedy the problem. We are presented with an...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 57 (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, Amendments 67 and 69 are in my name on the Marshalled List. Amendment 67 would add signposting measures to the audience protection measures which Ofcom must review under new Section 368OB of the Communications Act 2003. Amendment 69, in common with the amendments that have already been spoken to, would require Ofcom to consider whether age-rating systems used by a tier 1 service...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 45 (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: I agree with what the noble Lord, Lord Lansley, said about the group being “miscellaneous”. It suggests it is a bit of a hotchpotch when, in fact, the noble Lord has already asked some very pertinent questions, which my noble friend’s Amendment 54A asks as well. It intends to probe the Government’s intentions to address digital exclusion relating to access to television. Quite a few...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 42 (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: The right reverend Prelate is nothing if not consistent. He has been raising what “appropriate” means in the Bill from the word go. This group of amendments, and the debate which we have just had, is in many ways at the heart of the Bill. At its heart is the issue of our public service broadcasters as the cornerstone of our broadcasting sector in the UK, investing, as they do, billions of...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his answer. I am quite glad that I waited to make my comments until I had heard what the Minister and other noble Lords had to say when speaking to their amendments, particularly the noble Lord, Lord Foster. Let us first dispose of the probing amendment that leads this group. We have here a moving scenario about subtitles and we are just going to have to...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: To clarify that, does that mean that the Government intend to have this consultation with the political parties about paid political advertising; in other words, are the Government thinking that they would like to change the rules and regulations?

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I hope the Minister clocked the reluctant withdrawing of amendments. Perhaps there is further discussion to be had. I rise to move Amendment 35A in my name; I will address the other amendments when I have heard the discussion that takes place. This is a probing amendment, and the reason we have submitted it is that, during the course of this future-proofing Bill that we are...

Community Sports: Impact on Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I first congratulate my noble friend Lord Wood on initiating this debate and my noble friends Lords Shamash and Lord Hannett on choosing to make their maiden speeches in this important debate. My dear and noble friend Lord Shamash has demonstrated what a great addition he will be to our debates in your Lordships’ House, particularly with his experience of working with the most...

Zoological Society of London (Leases) Bill - Second Reading (10 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Randall, on his introduction of the Bill and on this rather joyful debate. On Report in the Commons, my honourable friend Chris Bryant MP stood up, said “I concur”, and then sat down. I intend to say slightly more than that, but we on these Benches do indeed concur. I want to say two things. We all have our favourite animals. I have spent 50...

Media Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 13 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: I start by thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Fraser. As she was speaking, I was thinking, “Oh, I wish I’d said that”. It was a very coherent laying out of the issues. I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Featherstone, for her support. It is clear that this is a process, and a discussion will be needed all the way through it. I hope that Broadcast 2040+ is involved in some of the...

Media Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 12 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Thornton: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin, for her wonderful peroration and saying exactly the right things. I thank the Minister for his answer, but I confess to being disappointed, because if this Bill is about future-proofing, then it really does need to address what our children will be doing in the next few years in terms of what they are watching, what they are consuming and what they...
