Counsellors of State Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful to the Lord Privy Seal for his detailed explanation of the Bill when he opened the debate. I also thank the House of Lords Library for its very helpful and comprehensive paper, which actually answers a number of the questions that were raised by noble Lords in this debate. I am sure that the Minister will make use of it. I smiled when the noble Lord, Lord Pannick,...

House of Lords (Peerage Nominations) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (18 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Norton, for his persistence in bringing forward today’s Bill. We have debated in this place and on air the principles that we have been discussing today. We are broadly in agreement on where we are seeking to get to, with occasional differences on the right way to achieve that. The noble Lord does the House a service by bringing the Bill forward. The...

G20 - Statement (17 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the Lord Privy Seal for repeating today’s Statement. I think it helps the discussions of the House when we are able to have Statements on the same day so the House can hear the Statement and respond, and I think he feels the same. I entirely agree with the comments he made. As world leaders met in Bali, the incident in Poland was a stark reminder of the effect of the...

Parliament: Deferred Peerages - Question (16 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it is one thing, as the Minister says, when someone, for personal reasons, genuinely cannot take up a seat in the House of Lords that they have been awarded, but will she recognise that it is completely unacceptable, if the rumours are true, to create a situation where four Members of Parliament hang onto their seats in the other place but can jump into this House at a time of their...

Parliament: Deferred Peerages - Question (16 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: She was not an MP.

COP 27 - Statement (15 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: Perhaps I will wait a moment for the House to settle as there does not seem to be as much interest in COP 27 as there was in the regency Bill. My Lords, I welcome that the Prime Minister raised the case of Alaa Abd el-Fattah with the Egyptian President when he was at COP. The Leader of the House will be aware from my intervention last week how concerned we are for his welfare in your...

Alaa Abd el-Fattah: Hunger Strike - Private Notice Question ( 9 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I do not think that anyone in your Lordships’ House doubts the noble Lord’s commitment on this, or that he believes every word that he has said about doing what he can to help. But this is not a new issue. A British citizen may be dying—may indeed have died—in an Egyptian jail. As his condition deteriorates, it is absolutely essential that he has British consular access; it...

Ministers: Government Business - Question ( 2 Tach 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the noble Baroness will be aware that the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his entire Cabinet at that time, many of whom are now back in the Cabinet, were warned in 2019 not to use their personal phones for business but it appears that some continued to do so. Can the Minister confirm what guidance was given to Cabinet Ministers at that time? Is it still being given to...

Home Secretary: Resignation and Reappointment - Commons Urgent Question (27 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the response in the other place that the sacking or resignation of the Home Secretary in last week’s Government was for “an error of judgment”, and that she recognised her mistake and stood down, is now under scrutiny and it is starting to wilt like a lettuce. A range of sanctions is available for the breach of the Ministerial Code, yet for this particular breach, which the...

COP 27 - Question (27 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I bring the Minister back to her answer to my noble friend, who asked about the 30/30 campaign. The Minister said that we lead the campaign on this; it is all very well leading campaigns, but after 12 years in government, we have not had actually made much progress. We are talking about 3% of land rather than 30%. With COP 27 pending, could she not say a little more about the...

Hereditary Peers By-election - Announcement (24 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, before the Minister responds, I wonder whether there may be an opportunity for he and I to discuss this through the usual channels. Not only do we have hereditary Peers by-elections, against which this House has voted in principle—with no disrespect to those candidates who come into the House, whom we welcome—numerous times. We also have additional Members coming to the House as...

Departure of the Previous Home Secretary - Commons Urgent Question (20 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Earl for repeating the earlier statement about the crisis in government. I had intended to ask a number of questions about the resignation or sacking of the Home Secretary and, indeed, ask whether he could say anything more about the resignation or sacking of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. We have had one of the shortest-serving Chancellors of the...

Economic Update - Statement (19 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful for that; the noble Lord is always helpful to this House. It would be helpful if we could have confirmation. The rumours are now that the Home Secretary has been sacked from her post. Given what has been said today about the necessity of a strong and stable Government, can he report back to your Lordships’ House at some point? There are probably Members of this House...

Economic Update - Statement (19 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I hope we can get back at some point to hearing Ministers repeat Statements; I think it would be helpful to the House. After listening to the Chancellor read his Statement on Monday, I came to the conclusion that Jeremy Hunt is either the luckiest or the unluckiest man in politics. He is unlucky in that he stood twice and failed twice to become leader of the Conservative Party and...

Replacement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer - Commons Urgent Question (18 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the Minister gave a much shorter answer than the one given in the House of Commons. I entirely agree with the first paragraph of his full Answer, which may surprise noble Lords. He said that, “it is a central responsibility of any Government to do what is necessary for economic stability”. Yet in the last few weeks this Government announced the biggest tax cuts since 1972 and...

House of Lords: Appointments - Private Notice Question (17 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, listening to the Minister, we accept that the appointment of new Members is important to refresh skills, talents and expertise as others depart from your Lordships’ House. However, the Burns report, as indicated by the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, showed a road map towards a smaller and therefore more effective Chamber. Let us look at the facts over the last few years. David Cameron...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, first, I welcome the noble Baroness back to the Front Benches. Many of us were surprised when she was departed from them previously, and I welcome her to her new job. I note that her official title is Minister of State for Government Efficiency. I wish her well; she has never been one to shy away from a challenge, and she has a challenge in that one. We look forward very much to the...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: It is unusual, but to the noble Lord I will.

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I would welcome a fairer way. The key question is: who pays? The Government had a choice. They could have said that future taxpayers will pay—at a time when borrowing is higher than it has been for years—or they could have said that the energy companies should make a contribution to this. The £8 billion the noble Lord cites is wrong; it is at least £14 billion. I do not dispute the...
