Lord Leigh of Hurley: To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the number of motor vehicles which are subject to a 'statutory off road notification' but are currently on UK highways.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 21 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: I heard what the noble Baroness said very clearly, but does she agree that Goldsmiths has now agreed to take on a policy of BDS, and that if the Bill had passed, it would not have been able to succumb to intimidatory pressure so to do?

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 21 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My Lords, it seems to me to be fundamental to this Bill that universities and other relevant bodies are included. We are not talking about individual academics having their right to free speech being affected at all. We are talking about institutional behaviour. Yes, as the noble Lord, Lord Willetts, has pointed out, what happens in universities really matters. I also went on a trade trip to...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 21 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: Possibly first class. No one can forget that academia is not immune to bigotry. Let us recall that Heidelberg University in Germany was no less prestigious than any UK university in its day. In the 1920s, it was the centre of liberal thinking. A decade later, a mob of Heidelberg students burned Jewish and other so-called “corrupt” books in the Universitätsplatz. Jewish students and...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 21 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: I thank the noble Lord for telling us that. I had not heard that and I will check it out. None the less, she was dismissed for anti-Semitic behaviour, so it is suggested. We know what lies behind much of BDS. With respect to the noble Lord, Lord Mann, and my noble friend Lord Johnson, the BDS movement, as he said, has taken credit and claimed it scored a victory in respect of divestments by...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: Before the noble Baroness sits down, I am sure she will agree with me that violence by settlers or Palestinians has to be condemned without reservation, and the full force of the law used against such perpetrators.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My Lords, the noble Lords, Lord Warner and Lord Oates, and others want to remove reference to Israel. The question has been raised as to why one country should be singled out. The noble Lord, Lord Warner, drew attention to the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Cameron of Chipping Norton. He did not mention the noble Lord’s other remarks—that part of his deal to recognise Palestine as a...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: What, then, is the effect of proposed new subsection 4B(b) if not a blanket ban?

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: Proposed new subsection 4B(b).

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: I simply say that the noble Lord has criticised the wording and language of the Bill quite specifically. If this amendment is to be presented at a later stage, proposed new subsection 4B(b) does not work because it is a blanket ban.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My Lords, to bring us back to Amendment 19, I thought it was a probing amendment—but it seems that perhaps it is a serious one, given the endorsements of the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, and others, so let us think about it. I am querying it only because, if it comes back, it might allow the noble Lord, Lord Collins, to refine and consider it further. I would add to the questions from the...

Israel and Gaza - Private Notice Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My noble friend the Foreign Secretary set out five objectives—which I fully agree with—one of which was the elimination of Hamas from Gaza. I went to Kerem Shalom twice, once before 7 October and once after. Many of the people we met before 7 October who were delivering aid to Gaza have been killed by Hamas. The people who were left told us that one of their biggest problems was...

Start-up Companies: Tax Incentives - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the pressure experienced by start-up companies arising from delays in accessing tax incentive schemes designed to support them, including the Enterprise Investment Scheme and Research and Development tax credits.

Start-up Companies: Tax Incentives - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and draw your Lordships’ attention to my entry in the register of interests.

Start-up Companies: Tax Incentives - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: My Lords, I understand the need to check claims in certain areas. I am chair of the Finance Bill Sub-Committee of the Economic Affairs Committee, and we have reported on extensive R&D fraud, but there is no history or evidence of fraud in respect of EIS. However, there is evidence of heavy-handedness by HMRC in restricting claims, so will my noble friend agree to set up a working party that...

Written Answers — Treasury: UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Leigh of Hurley: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to remarks by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 21 February (HL Deb col 666) with regard to the Trade and Cooperation Agreement in the context of engaging with the EU for approval for extending the enterprise investment scheme (EIS) and venture capital trust (VCT) scheme, whether the subsidy control provisions of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement apply...
