Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (23 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I am beginning to feel like a broken record but I am still very unclear on what an “English higher education provider” is. I understand that it is meant to be an inclusive category, and that may have its merits. I have now read the Introduction to the Higher Education Market Entry Reforms—which I find a slightly angled title, let us say—and the factsheet on degree-awarding...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (18 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I very much regret delaying things at this hour, but I ask for a clarification on Amendment 139, moved by the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson of Balmacara. It states that an English higher education provider is a higher education provider in England: we go back to this territory. I thank the Minister very much for the letter that was quickly sent to those of us who asked about it, but...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (4th Day) (18 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, as a long-term university teacher, often rated by my students, both in this country and overseas, I have a sense of some metrics that are less gameable than others. That is surely what any attempt to measure things must look like. Student satisfaction about the beer is, obviously, not the best place to look. There are some well-known ways of looking at teaching which, if one can get...

Policing and Crime Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply and other noble Lords who have helped illuminate the issue we recur to. The noble Lord, Lord Lester, is perhaps a little optimistic in imagining that IPSO is a model of self-regulation. Perhaps he meant to say a model of self-interested regulation. The point is that Leveson provides not regulation, but an audit of the standard of self-regulation....

Policing and Crime Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: I am aware of that and know him. I admire him and what he did in Northern Ireland. He is an admirable person. I comment just on the terms of reference. Self-regulation is something anybody would concede can reasonably be subject to audit. We allow companies in a free market to proceed as they wish, but they have to have their accounts audited. It is no different when we say that a free press...

Policing and Crime Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, we have been on this terrain a number of times. I understand the Minister’s objection that there should not be a charge on public funds. Therefore, these amendments do not propose any charge on public funds that has not already been agreed by Parliament. I therefore think that that reason does not now hold. We know that the status quo is unacceptable and that the form of press...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (16 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, we need to clarify a point that I have raised a couple of times already which is whether English higher education providers are indeed public sector bodies and therefore fall under the 2010 Equality Act. I speak as a former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. That legislation, which I think is better than it is usually given credit for, is very clear that it applies...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (16 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, when the Minister replies, can she clarify a key term of the Bill—namely, the English higher education provider? I think we all understand—and this clause makes it very explicit—that we expect a diversity of institutions to provide higher education in England. What is unclear to me is whether English higher education providers have to be incorporated under English law. May...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (16 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: I support the amendment. I think there are wider reasons for feeling that not everything can be well done by guidance. Among other things, guidance sits there in the cupboard, so to speak, and there is no reason for the Executive or Parliament to review it until somebody is tripped up in an unfortunate way. Guidance seeks a sharper definition between what may and may not be done—between...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (11 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Perhaps I may raise one point for clarification. I think the Minister just referred to the public sector equality duty, which of course would in any case apply to any university that is indeed a public body. I accept the point that perhaps no supplementary and additional clauses are needed there to ensure proper and fair treatment of students with disabilities. However, I am not quite certain...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) ( 9 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I should like to ask the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, what meaning is intended by, “primarily located in the United Kingdom”. There is a large number of examples across the globe of franchised campuses, sometimes franchised by extremely reputable universities in this country and in the United States but operating in other countries. Is it a matter of where the majority of their...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (1st Day) ( 9 Ion 2017)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: Following on from the noble Lord’s comments, if the Minister is minded to reject the amendment and go and think about it, could he think in particular about the many institutions that sometimes appear in different parts of the world under the title of university, which may not be universities that this Bill is designed to promote or protect, nor institutions where we would want many of our...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Second Reading ( 6 Rha 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I decided that if I declared all my interests, it would take the full five minutes. Let us just say that I have had a lifetime in universities, academies, academic institutions and publishers of some variety. I shall speak only on the higher education provisions which I think are the more difficult part of this legislation. The premise behind them is that competition will help to...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (30 Tach 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: I thank the Minister for her reply. She suggests that we have yet to consider whether it is appropriate, proportionate or in the public interest to proceed with this amendment and that we should await the outcome of the consultation. That outcome is nicely timed to be rather too late for this legislation, where the proposed new clause fits very well. It has nothing to do with the commencement...

Policing and Crime Bill - Report (30 Tach 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, this amendment is also in the names of the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer of Thoroton. The second part of the Leveson inquiry was promised by the former Prime Minister in order to investigate allegations of collusion—above all, corrupt collusion—between the press and the police. An undertaking was made to victims of press and police...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Third Reading (31 Hyd 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I support my noble friend’s amendment. The situation is complex and I think everybody concedes that the amendment as passed by your Lordships’ House last week had deficiencies. However, it was agreed by the Public Bill Office that it was adequate, as it has agreed that the amendment which is now before your Lordships is adequate. It seems to me that the ball is in the...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Hyd 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, earlier this afternoon in Amendment 10, the House accepted the principle of protection for journalistic sources. That seems very important, for reasons which I will not spell out but are well known. My noble friend’s amendments, in particular Amendment 18, propose a modest measure to balance Amendment 10 and I will try to explain why I think some balancing is necessary. Noble...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (1st Day) (11 Gor 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I support my noble friend’s amendment. She set out extremely clearly what is at stake and we should remember that at the other end of violations of privacy there are people who have their privacy severely intruded upon. The intruders are not the security services or a public authority but privately owned newspapers. There is a rumour abroad that in some way Sir Brian Leveson’s...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 5 Gor 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, were the referendum campaigns a great exercise in democracy, or were they a great exercise in talking past one another? I fear that the disarray which we now witness and the retractions, revelations and recriminations that spill out every day suggest that large parts of these campaigns were not even an exercise in communication, and that the public were not offered adequately...

Public Institutions - Motion to Take Note (30 Meh 2016)

Baroness O'Neill of Bengarve: My Lords, I, too, had taken this debate to be rather broader than the question of the declaration of interest, let alone one specifically about the sources of pensions. It is not irrelevant, but I think that this is, as the noble Lord, Lord Norton of Louth, has just shown us, something of very much broader concern. We are, I suppose, 30 years out from what is taken by some to be a revolution...
