Reading the newspaper headlines this week illustrates the seriousness of the situation in which we currently find ourselves, with...

Defence Personnel Data Breach - Statement ( 8 Mai 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, earlier this year a UK council reported that it was facing 10,000 cyberattacks per day. Unfortunately, such events are only going to increase across the board. What preventive measures will the Ministry of Defence take going forward to protect us from potential data theft in situations where other external contractors hold similar sensitive data?

UK Trade Performance - Statement ( 7 Mai 2024)

Child Poverty - Question for Short Debate (29 Ebr 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for securing this important debate. As we have heard, by the Government’s own estimate there are 4.3 million children—or to put it another way, 30% of all children in the UK—living in relative low-income housing, after housing costs. That is clearly a most alarming statistic. I truly believe that by addressing child and parental ill health,...

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

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, when these start-up companies grow, they may need additional funding. However, one of the main sources of capital for them in the past—the UK’s Small Cap stock index—is shrinking as firms list overseas or go with private equity. So I ask my noble friend the Minister: what are the Government doing to reinvigorate the Small Cap index, help our start-ups and keep them here?

UK-African Investment Summit - Question (18 Ebr 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: To ask His Majesty's Government, in the light of reports that homelessness among military veterans in England increased by 14 per cent in the past 12 months, what steps they plan to take to ensure that ongoing regular training on the benefits of financial, dietary and physical education are provided to members of the armed forces throughout their careers rather than only as they leave the...

School Meals for Children - Question (20 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, in 1825 the great politician Jean Brillat-Savarin coined the phrase “You are what you eat”. It is concerning that, according to research, ultra-processed food makes up 64% of the average UK school lunch. What is the Government’s strategy to both teach and empower children to make the right food choices?

UK Tradeshow Programme Closure - Question (18 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, there are 5.5 million firms listed in Companies House, but only 9% of them currently export, which seems low, optically. What does the Minister believe is an achievable percentage to aim for and what is the Government’s strategy to reach that target?

Earnings: Mothers and Fathers - Question (13 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: To paraphrase Christine Lagarde from the European Central Bank, if Lehman Brothers had been “Lehman Sisters”, we may have avoided a global financial crisis. We need more female representation on boards of companies and we need more female CEOs. Can the Minister say what focus the Government are placing on a voluntary, business-led approach to setting targets that will see more women in...

UK Armed Forces - Commons Urgent Question (12 Maw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, the Army, the Navy and the Air Force offer amazing opportunities, but our Armed Forces’ numbers have been shrinking. We saw the largest number of applications to the Royal Navy in eight years during January, but one swallow does not make a summer. We need a proactive, long-term strategy, aside from pay and accommodation, to drive future recruitment. I ask the Minister, what is...

Pupil Mental Health, Well-being and Development - Motion to Take Note (22 Chw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett of Manor Castle, for tabling this important debate. We have been presented with some alarming statistics. One in five eight to 16 year-olds has a probable mental disorder. There has been a 53% increase in the number of children in mental health crisis over the past four years. We understand that the Government want to establish mental health...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Physical Education (20 Chw 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of Sport England’s latest Active Lives Children and Young People Survey, published in December 2023, which estimated that around 47 percent of children and young people were meeting the Chief Medical Officers’ guidelines of taking part in sport and physical activity for an average of 60 minutes or more every day, and what...

Schools: Financial Education - Question for Short Debate (31 Ion 2024)

the Earl of Effingham: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Sater, for raising this debate, which I believe is of fundamental importance. As I think we all subscribe to, education has the power and the ability to hold the keys to many amazing things. There should be four pillars to our education system: food education; physical education; financial education; and academic education. As a general broad-brush...
