King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (18 Gor 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, the Government have declared their intention to introduce legislation to promote social housing and increase the rights of tenants and their protection. These are matters to which I fully subscribe. Although the Minister—the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath—did not elaborate in his opening address on what is intended in relation to tenants’ rights and protections, I assume...

Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I declare at the outset that, although I do not own any property in the private rented sector, my husband owns a number of such properties. I am grateful to the Minister and the Bill team for engaging with me on some of the issues that I will raise in this debate. Like others, I warmly welcome the Bill’s additional protection for tenants. But, in judging the overall merits of the...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, the Horizon scandal was described in the Explanatory Notes as a “miscarriage of justice of unparalleled scale and impact”. I do not know of anyone who would challenge that description. I certainly would not. It has had a devastating impact on huge numbers of sub-postmasters over a long period, leading to shattered lives, including huge trauma and mental distress, suicides,...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 18 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Etherton: I support Amendments 18 and 29, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Verdirame, to which I have added my name. In view of what has been said in detail by the noble Lord, Lord Verdirame, and the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, I can be very short. Put very simply, the international law exception in the Schedule, as currently worded, leaves entirely to the relevant public body the right to reach its own...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Etherton: Does the Minister accept what I said? In the Bill, currently there is no provision under the regulatory regime for the regulator to award damages for losses suffered by individual consumers.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I speak to my Amendment 49. I am grateful to those across the House who have supported it. This amendment is about the fundamental right of access to justice for consumers who have suffered from breaches of requirements and directions by the CMA, as the regulator, or commitments given to the CMA. The persons against whom the requirements and directions are imposed—those who have...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 22 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Etherton: I am very grateful to the Minister for that analysis of the speeches made and the Government’s response to them. I am also grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken in this debate, which has raised some important points about people who are extremely vulnerable. The noble Lords, Lord Kerr and Lord Coaker, articulated the point that all these amendments dealing with exemptions are...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 22 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I will also speak to related amendments that I have tabled: Amendments 24, 26, 28 and 30. I am extremely grateful to those who have co-signed all or some of those amendments: the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, and the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton. I will speak very briefly, because I spoke previously about this both on Second Reading and...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Chw 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I welcome the Bill for the reasons explained by the Minister. My focus today is on one particular issue: the international law exception to Section 1 in paragraph 6 of the Schedule. Consistently with the policy objectives of the Bill, that exception must be qualified to ensure consistency between the view of the public body decision-maker and that of central government about the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 57 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I have given notice, with the noble Lord, Lord Anderson of Ipswich, of my intention to oppose the Question that Clause 5 stand part of the Bill. That is because, notwithstanding the eloquence of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hoffmann, and the noble Lord, Lord Howard, its provisions are in plain breach of the United Kingdom’s obligations under international law and in breach of...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 38 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Etherton: I am very grateful to the Minister for his reply and to those who have spoken. What the debate has shown, short as it was, is that the issue of social groups and how they fit into the legislation is very important. Many points were made on various issues that were all extremely valuable, including the wonderful examples given by the noble Lord, Lord Cashman. The noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 38 (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, in speaking to this amendment I will speak to Amendments 40, 43, 45 and 51, which I tabled, all of which are connected. The current version of Clause 4(1) enables an applicant to oppose removal to Rwanda on the ground that it is not a safe country for the applicant only if the applicant provides “compelling evidence relating specifically to the person’s particular individual...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, there are so many impermissible aspects to this Bill that it is difficult to know where to start. There is the overarching point that the Rwanda treaty—which underpins the central theme of the Bill that Rwanda is a safe country—has not yet been ratified, and then there are all those aspects of the Bill which contravene our constitutional norms or breach our international...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Second Reading ( 5 Rha 2023)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I wish to address three short but important points. The first two concern redress or means of redress by consumers and small businesses. The third concerns the point which has been raised by a number of Members of the House about charities and subscription contracts. The first issue concerns the absence of provision for collective proceedings by consumers and small businesses....

Royal Albert Hall Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I am very grateful to all Members who have spoken before me, particularly the noble Lord, Lord Harrington, for his introduction. I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, who has pursued the issues relating to the constitution of the Albert Hall for many years. One way or another, they have covered virtually all the issues, so I can be relatively brief. I want to concentrate on...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 8 (19 Med 2023)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I also support Amendment 8 in the name of the noble Earl, Lord Lytton. Ideally, it is worth avoiding appeals. Appeals can be avoided only if there is confidence that you have the material available. That presupposes a sharing of information that is open and transparent. One of the criticisms that is often made is of the time taken in appeals, the obscurity of the role adopted by the...

Non-Domestic Rating Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (19 Med 2023)

Lord Etherton: I strongly support Amendment 19 from the noble Lord, Lord Thurlow. I too read the article in the Times yesterday to which he referred. The fact of the matter is that, while rents have decreased substantially due to inflation and other measures, rateable values are very high and the rates payable are now no indication at all of the actual rental value of the properties. That is one of the...

Bishop’s Stortford Cemetery Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (14 Med 2023)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I take this opportunity as the chair of the Opposed Private Bill Committee to thank its other members: the noble Lord, Lord Reay, the noble Viscount, Lord Stansgate, and the noble Baronesses, Lady Thornhill and Lady Willis of Summertown. On behalf of the entire committee, I thank those who supported us: Chris Salmon Percival, Clerk of Private Bills, who stepped in to clerk when the...

Veterans Update - Statement (20 Gor 2023)

Lord Etherton: I thought it would be important to finish the debate by acknowledging what many other noble Lords, including the Minister, have said, which is that, without the live contributions from those veterans who were affected by the ban and suffered under it, and who sent statements to us, the report would have been a mere shadow. I ask that the whole House acknowledges the extraordinary courage that...

Illegal Migration Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (12 Gor 2023)

Lord Etherton: My Lords, I draw attention to Motion G and my Amendment 23B in lieu. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, in particular, who has been a stalwart supporter of me in relation to this clause from the very beginning. The clause identifies countries currently specified in Schedule 1 which, the evidence and the law show—by virtue of decisions made by UK courts—are not safe places. I explained...
