Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Motion (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I sort of gave my thanks yesterday, as I was not really sure what we would be doing today—and I was not alone. I want to thank the noble Lord, Lord Parkinson, again for his courtesy. We are extraordinarily grateful for the two amendments that he accepted, which my noble friend Lady Thornton and I were very keen to see inserted in the Bill, along with others in your Lordships’...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I think the convention of the House is that, on Report, a noble Lord has only one bite of the cherry. This has been a long debate and we had a long debate yesterday. I listened to all sides of the argument and have set out the Labour Party’s viewpoint on the current situation. There is one argument with which I strongly agree, and that is that it is unfortunate that we are having...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Perhaps the Minister will comment on whether this matter has been under active consideration, because I think that is important. There is a shared concern across the Chamber on this, and the noble Baroness has touched on a very good point.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I can advise the noble Lord that, during the period between now and the general election, he will be the Minister most watched and listened to.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I sense that this debate is coming rapidly to a close. The noble Baroness, Lady Stowell, has doggedly pursued this issue with others and I wholeheartedly congratulate her on her determination to ensure that we maintain a free and fair press without foreign intervention. This amendment takes the noble Baroness’s critique of foreign state ownership a stage further by seeking to...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 83 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I thank all those who have already spoken, outlining their rich and often diverging views on this important clause. I understand completely that there are very different views around the Chamber and we have heard them for the last hour or so. I will outline the Opposition’s view on Clause 50 and Section 40. The Leveson report is now over a decade old. Responding to, rightly, the...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I am sorry to interrupt the Minister, but how do the Government really envisage future-proofing to take account of those changes? That is quite important in this debate.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Is the Minister content that that point is covered by that? Is there sufficient flexibility in the legislation to enable that?

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 77 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I will study the Minister’s words carefully.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 71 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Perhaps the Minister can help here. I am wondering what a newscaster is, having heard what the noble Lord, Lord Grade, said.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 71 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I can usually spot a cunning plan when there is one afoot, and I fancy that our debate this afternoon is going to be overshadowed by events outside this House as the lectern has already been rolled out. This is an eclectic group of amendments which raise some important issues on radio regulation. The noble Lord, Lord Storey, in Amendments 71, 73 and 74 seeks to establish a baseline...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: What sort of costs does the Minister anticipate the channel will face in setting up its own production company? Has any estimate been made of that? What discussions have the Government had with the company to ensure that it can secure that in the most cost-efficient way?

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the clause stand part debate tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Bonham-Carter, for whom I have immense respect, is, I am sure, well intentioned. As she said, it relates to the primary purpose of Channel 4, which is to be a commissioning public service broadcaster. The Government’s desire to enable Channel 4 to produce programmes in-house as well as through its tried and tested...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I get the sense that the Minister is sympathetic to the point we have made here and that it is more a question of timescale. If the Government are looking at this, what sort of timescale do they think would be right for them to ponder the question more widely?

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: We are not in the habit of getting ahead of ourselves.

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: The right reverend Prelate must be an expert with a broom.

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, this is a large group, as the Minister said in his opening comments, dominated mainly by government amendments. We are grateful to him for his explanation of the effects of the amendments, which we broadly welcome, although we have some questions about them. In particular, I would like a more precise understanding of the meaning of the Minister’s Amendment 19; I had hoped it...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: The noble Viscount, Lord Colville, made a good point about Parliament being consulted. I wonder if the noble Lord could say something about how both Houses—and Select Committees—could be consulted and considered in the question of quotas and the distribution of regional production. I do think that is an important element of this debate, and I am sure noble Lords around the Committee will...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Might the noble Lord be prepared to meet them at some point? That might have some value.

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, this debate has been a fascinating example of how the nations and regions are well represented in the Committee. We have heard contributions from Wales, Scotland, Newcastle and across the country. The noble Baroness, Lady Fraser, argued very persuasively that quotas work. These amendments are aimed in a targeted and precise way at the hours and expenditure on programmes broadcast...
