Canlyniadau 1–20 o 64 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Londesborough

NHS: Long-term Sustainability - Motion to Take Note (18 Ebr 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I should first congratulate my noble friend Lord Patel on securing this critical debate and raising such challenging questions. Unlike many of today’s speakers, I am not a healthcare expert, but as an entrepreneur, employer and adviser to SMEs over the past 30 years, I have developed a particular interest in the health and productivity of our workforce, so I will start with the...

Higher Education - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Maw 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Willetts, and two former Secretaries of State for Education. For my part, as an employer, I will focus on higher education and productivity, which of course is a two-way street. It is no coincidence that the UK’s flatlining productivity since 2008 comes at a time when we have seen the education budget fall in real terms per pupil...

UK Population Growth - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, the uncomfortable truth is that our economy appears to be incapable of growing without onboarding some 300,000 migrant workers each year. Even then, we are talking about miserly growth and, worse still, zero GDP growth per capita. Does the Minister agree that, until we tackle our abysmal productivity rates, such population growth is here to stay?

NHS: Neurology Care - Question (26 Chw 2024)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the NHS’s resourcing and capacity to provide specialist care, in line with that provided to cancer and cardiac patients, for those living with neurological conditions.

NHS: Neurology Care - Question (26 Chw 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, there are 11 million people in the UK living with neurological conditions—the cause of more deaths than cancer and heart disease combined and the greatest cause of lifetime disability. The NHS is clearly not set up to provide the specialist care needed. France and Germany have more than four full-time consultant neurologists per 100,000 people; here, it is just over one. Across...

Workers (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Chw 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, first, I congratulate members of the Economic Affairs Committee on producing such a topical and insightful report on one of the key constraints on our economic growth. I should declare that, although I now sit on this committee, I sadly cannot claim any credit for this report as it came out a month before I joined. My experience as an entrepreneur, employer and SME adviser tells me...

Poverty: International Development Aid - Question (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords—

Poverty: International Development Aid - Question (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, the White Paper makes several laudable commitments, some of which require significant upfront investments, such as access to basic services, and that brings us the uncomfortable question of how these projects will be resourced, given not one but two huge hits to our ODA budget: some 25% lost due to the UK abandoning its 0.7% commitment, and almost 30% of what is left being spent on...

Financial Stability: Private Equity Firms - Question (13 Rha 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I declare my interests as set out in the register. It is hardly surprising that private equity is struggling to do deals and sell its portfolio companies in a climate of high interest rates and low growth. In fact, it is zero growth, as October’s dismal GDP figures show that we have seen no growth at all in the last quarter. In view of capital’s recent flight to quality, does...

Construction Sector: Cash Retentions - Question (11 Rha 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, can the Minister explain why the Government are dragging their heels over the anti-enterprise practices of cash retentions and late payments, especially as SMEs in the construction sector are running the highest rate of insolvencies of any sector in this economy? Over the last three decades, the SME market share has dropped in new housebuilding from 40% to less than 10%, leaving the...

Autumn Statement 2023 - Motion to Take Note (29 Tach 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, just two weeks ago during the debate in this place on the King’s Speech, I admitted to being baffled by the Prime Minister’s comments in his introduction. He talked about a “vibrant economy”, which had “turned the comer” and was making investors excited. I should declare that I am an investor in British SMEs, so I was somewhat concerned, rather than excited, to see that...

Jobs Market: Graduates - Question (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the jobs market for graduates, and whether this assessment points to a mismatch between skills and vacancies.

Jobs Market: Graduates - Question (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Londesborough: I thank the Minister for her detailed response, but the fact remains that we have swathes of overqualified graduates in jobs not requiring a degree. Outside London, that number has now risen to 42%, and in many regions it is more than half. Graduate vacancies are falling steeply, as is their wage premium, and students have now racked up more than £200 billion of debt, much of which will...

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I will focus on the economy, in light of the Prime Minister’s rather baffling introduction to the King's Speech where he states that “Our vibrant economy”, which has “turned the corner”, makes investors “excited about what the UK has to offer”. As an entrepreneur and investor in SMEs—I declare my interests as set out in the register—I must beg to differ. Our...

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government what is their estimate of the number of people who suffer from migraines; and what assessment they have made of the consequential impact on the workforce.

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, and declare an interest as a migraineur.

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: I am very grateful to the Minister for his response to a Question that was last asked in this House in 1961. Fast forward 60 years, and the NHS devotes less than £200 million a year to treating a condition that, as the Minister says, affects 10 million people in the UK—many undiagnosed—and which costs us, according to my figures, backed up by the Migraine Trust, some £10 billion per...
