Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, His Majesty’s Government appreciate the great interest that the bicentenary of the death of the sixth Lord Byron has generated, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. The continuing fascination with his life and works has cemented his status as one of England’s greatest poets, and it is absolutely right that his legacy be honoured. The Government fully support the relocation...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Earl is right to point out that the Government have moved rather slowly in this instance. Part of the difficulty has been the question of the ownership of the statue. I am very pleased that my department has been able to break that impasse by taking responsibility for the statue, so that it can indeed be moved into the main part of Hyde Park. It is currently stranded on an island...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: As part of its plans, the Byron Society is preparing a programme of engagement and education, which is wonderful, so that in its new location the statue will be able to inspire future generations of poets and philhellenes, and of course be much more easily accessed so that it can be maintained and repaired.

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I congratulate my noble friend on his poetic exhortation. The Byron Society has received support from the Heritage of London Trust but welcomes support from members of the public. I would encourage them to do that, so that the statue can be moved, I hope in this bicentenary year.

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I certainly do. The noble Baroness is right to remind us that, sadly, Lord Byron’s marriage was brief and unhappy, but his pioneering daughter, Ava Lovelace, deserves recognition and to be remembered. Her portrait was hung in some of the state rooms in Downing Street until recently. It would be wonderful to inspire future generations of women and girls to go into computing, engineering and...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My noble friend makes an important point. Lord Byron made a number of contributions in your Lordships’ House, speaking in defence of the Luddites. He was politically engaged throughout his career. Of course, we recall his support for Greek independence—in fact, the marble for the statue was donated by the Greek Government in recognition of that. His legislative contributions bear...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I hope that the campaign to move the statue into Hyde Park, where it can be seen and admired by more people, will help to inspire people into art, whether that is sculpture or poetry, and to investigate history. The efforts of the Byron Society to promote this legacy are important. Many towns in Greece have an Odos Vyronos—that is, a Byron Street. He is perhaps better commemorated in Greece...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am happy to reassure the noble Earl that, yes, we are. Historic England does a great deal of work, working with police forces across the UK on this important issue. We have to protect our public statues from, alas, vandalism and theft, and from the challenges of climate change. On this, the department, Historic England and many others work closely.

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: As Arts Minister, I am certainly not an art critic. I have always lived by the motto “de gustibus non est disputandum” when it comes to the selection of artwork. The matter of the fourth plinth is the responsibility of the Mayor of London, but I certainly share my noble friend’s hopes that, in moving the statue of Lord Byron to its more prominent place by Victoria Gate, more people will...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling: Video Games (12 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: His Majesty’s Government is committed to ensuring that video games can be enjoyed safely and responsibly by everyone. The Advertising Standards Authority ruled that Electronic Arts had breached the Committee of Advertising Practice guidance on two of its adverts by failing to disclose the presence of in-game purchases including random items. We understand that Electronic Arts has responded...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Parkrun: Gender (12 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Tackling disparities in levels of participation in sport and physical activity is central to Sport England’s ten-year ‘Uniting the Movement’ strategy and the Government’s ‘Get Active’ strategy, through which we have set a target of having 1.25 million more active women by 2030. Sport England’s strategy is clear that all funding partners must work towards delivering its strategic...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Art Works: Security ( 5 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The vandalism against the portrait of A.J. Balfour at Trinity College, Cambridge, last month is rightly being investigated as a criminal act by Cambridgeshire Police. The shoddy sense of history by those who perpetrated and promoted it is also a reminder of the importance of historic portraits in improving our awareness and understanding of the past. The famous declaration made by Balfour as...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Sports: Sponsorship ( 4 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: All domestic sports governing bodies have agreed to four core principles underpinning the cross-sport Code of Conduct on gambling sponsorship: (i) protecting children and young people; (ii) socially responsible promotion; (iii) reinvestment in sport; and (iv) maintaining sporting integrity. These principles put in place a robust minimum standard for sponsorship across all sports. Through the...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Social Media: Advertising ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Online advertising in the UK is regulated independently by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) which administers and enforces the advertising codes. While the codes apply to advertisers, the ASA works with major platforms including Meta through its Intermediary and Platform Principles pilot to help uphold the UK Non-broadcast Advertising Code. The Government’s Online Advertising...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Governing Bodies ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Football Governance Bill, introduced to the House of Commons on 19 March, will establish an Independent Football Regulator. In consultation with interested parties and experts, the new regulator will publish a ‘Football Club Corporate Governance Code’. Clubs will be required to report on corporate governance, setting out how they apply the Code in their individual circumstances. This...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: BBC: Advertising ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The BBC has responsibilities set out in its Royal Charter to avoid unnecessary adverse impacts on the market. As the BBC’s independent regulator, it is for Ofcom to hold the BBC to account in meeting its obligations both to its audiences and to the market, as set out in the Royal Charter and Framework Agreement. The Government’s recent Mid-Term Review of the BBC stresses the need for the...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Musicians: EU Countries ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: His Majesty’s Government is committed to supporting touring artists, and the music industry more widely, to adapt to new arrangements following our departure from the EU, and we have worked with the sector and directly with Member States to provide clarity and support. The UK’s rules for touring creative professionals are more generous than those in many EU Member States. The vast...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Advertising: Codes of Practice ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Advertising Standards Authority is responsible for the enforcement of the advertising codes while its sister organisation, the Committee of Advertising Practice, codifies advertising standards. Both organisations operate independently of the Government and monitor developments in technology and advertising techniques to ensure that the codes are enforced and remain fit for purpose.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: BBC Radio ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Ministers at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport regularly meet the BBC’s leadership to discuss a range of issues. The BBC has responsibilities, set out in its Royal Charter, to avoid unnecessary adverse impacts on the market. In delivering these responsibilities, the BBC is required to undertake a public interest test, carrying out an assessment of the impact of new services and...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling: Advertising ( 3 Ebr 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: His Majesty’s Government recognises that, while millions of people gamble online without experiencing problems, for some it becomes an addiction with serious consequences. In our approach to gambling advertising, we have struck a balanced and evidence-led approach which tackles aggressive advertising that is most likely to appeal to children, while recognising that advertising is an...
