Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 104 (13 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 109 and 115. Once again, I do so with the co-sponsorship of the noble Baronesses, Lady Crawley and Lady Bakewell. I will address Amendment 109 first. Fake reviews can cause loss, detriment and harm to consumers and law-abiding businesses. The government amendment that adds fake reviews to the practices in the schedule is therefore welcome. However, that...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 68 (13 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 99 to 101 and I declare an interest as president of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. I am pleased that also sponsoring these amendments are my predecessor as president of the institute, the noble Baroness, Lady Crawley, and the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell of Hardington Mandeville, a former leader of Somerset County Council. Before speaking to...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 112 ( 6 Maw 2023)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 121 and 123 in my name and that of the noble Baroness, Lady Crawley. At Second Reading I welcomed the opportunity created by the Bill to review, improve and update a wide-ranging tranche of important legislation. However, I expressed some concerns about process, and one of those is the constraint that I believe Clause 15 imposes on improving and updating...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) ( 6 Chw 2023)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, the overarching objective of this Bill is a timely and important opportunity to review, rationalise and update a wide-ranging tranche of legislation, and that I warmly welcome and strongly support. However, I have grave reservations about how the Bill proposes that it is done. My concerns are therefore about process, not purpose, and fall into two broad areas. The first is the role...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day): Amendment 33 (28 Tach 2022)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, in speaking to Amendments 58 and 82 in my name, I reiterate my support for the opportunity that the Bill offers to reduce burdens on business, especially small businesses, by simplifying the UK regulation of public procurement. I also welcome the Bill’s objective of promoting an open and accessible business culture and practices. That said, we must be careful that important...

Genetically Modified Organisms (Deliberate Release) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (14 Maw 2022)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, like the noble Viscount, Lord Hanworth, I am a member of the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee, or SLSC, which is an easier mouthful to get through. Also like him, I believe that our report has been misunderstood in some quarters. It was not seeking to comment on the purpose of these draft regulations but acknowledged that there were shortcomings in how they had been laid....

Environment Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (23 Meh 2021)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 55 in my name. In doing so, I shall express my support for Amendments 52 and 53. The purpose of Amendment 55 is to give investors greater clarity and confidence about their potential or expected role and contribution. For businesses to be able to play their full part in delivering future environmental objectives, they need a clear line of sight that covers...

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (21 Meh 2021)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for his thoughtful response, to which I will give careful thought. I am also grateful to other noble Lords who spoke in support of my amendments in this group, and for the wisdom, experience and expertise with which they supplemented my opening remarks. Achieving cohesion and clarity—and my noble friend Lord Cormack was quite right to add a third C,...

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (21 Meh 2021)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, in moving Amendment 1, I will speak also to Amendments 3, 54 and 74 in my name. The Environment Bill offers a unique opportunity to create a coherent long-term framework for the environment—a framework capable of motivating all sectors and all parts of society to plan, to commit to and to collaborate on improving the environment on which we and future generations depend. I...

Environment Bill - Second Reading ( 7 Meh 2021)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend for setting out this important Bill. I am grateful too for his long-term advocacy of many of the proposals it contains. The Bill offers a unique opportunity to create a coherent, long-term framework for the environment that is capable of motivating all sectors and all parts of society to plan, to commit to and to collaborate on improving the...

Forensic Science Regulator Bill - Second Reading (19 Maw 2021)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy of Southwark, for introducing the Bill, which I warmly welcome as an important step in ensuring the quality, consistency and integrity of our forensic sciences across England and Wales. The Forensic Science Regulator—FSR—has been calling for statutory powers for many years to ensure that, through its codes of practice, there is a level...

Agriculture Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 28 (15 Med 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I support everything that my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe has said in moving Amendment 18, so I shall be brief. I added my name to this amendment for reasons I outlined at Second Reading. It is irregular for a Bill—even for a framework enabling Bill—to be sent to Parliament without any sort of formal impact assessment. It is yet more irregular for a Bill of this consequence...

Trade Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Med 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend the Minister and the right reverend Prelate on their excellent maiden speeches. In warmly welcoming the Bill, I want to focus on how the Government can deliver the priority they attach to the achievement of frictionless trade in current and future trade deals. For trade to be frictionless, there must first be mutual recognition between trading...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 275 (28 Gor 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, as vice-chair of the APPG on Science and Technology in Agriculture, I believe that the Bill is a timely opportunity for the Government to consult on and thereafter create the option in future to oversee and regulate precision-breeding tools such as new gene-editing technologies. I therefore fully support the amendment and agree with everything said so far in its support. I also note...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 270 (28 Gor 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I share the concerns about how standards will be maintained when negotiating new trade agreements and therefore, in principle, support what many of the amendments in this group are trying to achieve. In that context, I welcome the establishment by the DIT and Defra of the new Trade and Agriculture Commission. However, at the same time, I strongly support the important point made by...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 160 (21 Gor 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I welcome the amendments in this group that propose that the required reporting cycle should be more frequent than at least every five years. A more frequent reporting cycle will give the Government and others a quicker and clearer understanding of the issues and emerging trends, a point well made by the noble Lord, Lord Curry of Kirkharle. At Second Reading, I also said that a more...

Enterprise Act 2002 (Specification of Additional Section 58 Consideration) Order 2020 - Motion to Approve (15 Gor 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I welcome these two orders, but I want to raise an issue that is referenced in paragraph 8 in the accompanying report from the SLSC, of which I am a member. The issue is the lower turnover test threshold of more than £1 million below which the Government cannot intervene. Why is there any lower threshold at all when it comes to protecting the public interest in the relevant...

Agriculture Bill - Second Reading (10 Meh 2020)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend for introducing the Bill. In the time available I will raise four brief points and then turn to the important role that standards will play in negotiating trade agreements. First, do the Government intend to publish an impact assessment before the Bill has finished its parliamentary stages? It is irregular for a Bill, even a framework enabling...

Devolved Administrations: 20th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (22 Mai 2019)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I welcome today’s debate for a number of reasons, one being my involvement a decade ago in the Calman commission, which was tasked with carrying out an inquiry into the first 10 years of devolution in Scotland. It is interesting to reflect on what has been achieved a further 10 years since 2009. In many respects, Scottish devolution can claim to have been a considerable success....

Plastic: Environmental Threat and Recycling - Motion to Take Note (19 Rha 2018)

the Earl of Lindsay: My Lords, I also thank my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe for securing this debate and, in doing so, I declare an interest as chairman of BPI Pension Trustees Ltd and an adviser to British Polythene Industries, which is now a division of RPC Group plc. In respect of the 80% of the globe’s ocean plastic waste being found in or around eight or nine Pacific rim and African countries, it is an...
