Trade Union (Levy Payable to the Certification Officer) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion ( 7 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, these statutory instruments introduce what is, effectively, a tax on trade unions and subject them to criminal-style fines for breaches of complex labour law. This is part of a package of measures that includes allowing anti-union organisations to file time-consuming complaints against them, without a full parliamentary consideration. These changes are the wrong priority for...

Russian Oil and Gas Imports - Private Notice Question ( 7 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I have heard the Minister’s response, taking on board in part the point from the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, and recognise that we live in uncertain times. For clarity, can the Minister reconfirm the Government’s commitment to prioritising the development of renewables and that Ministers are looking to speed this programme up, and further commit to ensuring that the Government...

Office for Demographic Change Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 4 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To correct the noble Lord, I say briefly that my party and I recognise the importance of these issues, but this is not the right way to set about having that debate. That is the difference between the noble Lord and me.

Office for Demographic Change Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 4 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, it falls to me to strike a discordant note in this universe of unanimity that we have had this afternoon. I regret doing that in one way, because I find much to agree with in what the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, had to say, and generally he and I tend to be on the same side of sensible, progressive arguments. However, on this occasion I find myself unconvinced. As...

Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Safeguarding and Road Safety) Bill - Second Reading ( 4 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, what a pleasure it is to follow the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, on this topic. First I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Borwick, on sponsoring and leading on the Bill, as well as his honourable friend in another place Peter Gibson and my honourable friend Daniel Zeichner on his earlier work. As expertly set out by the noble Lord, the purpose of the Bill is to increase...

Gambling Advertising - Question for Short Debate ( 1 Maw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Foster, on securing this debate. It seems that it has been shifted around nearly as frequently as the publication date for the Government’s own White Paper on gambling regulation. Yesterday, in a response to an Oral Question from my noble friend Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe, the Minister seemed keen to hide behind the ongoing...

Creative Professionals: EU Tours - Question (21 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, perhaps this is an apposite moment for the House to acknowledge the contribution and sad death of Jamal Edwards, who has done so much to promote a new wave of musicians and artists to a global audience. Awarded an MBE at 24, he was an inspiration to a new generation. With that in mind, perhaps the Minister can tell us what support Her Majesty’s Government are giving to young new...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Television Licences: Fees and Charges (21 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many convictions for failure to pay for a TV licence have led to imprisonment in each of the last 10 years.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Children: Reading (21 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to support the Summer Reading Challenge in 2022 to ensure that children have access to reading materials over the summer holidays; and, in particular, how they will support children in areas where reading is uncommon.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Loneliness: Finance (21 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to commit further funding to address loneliness during winter this year.

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 ( 9 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I express the gratitude of the Labour Benches to the Government for the progress made on the Bill and the valuable update that the Minister has given us this afternoon. I am particularly pleased that the Government have brought back an amendment covering the dormant assets scheme, although I rather agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, that it is a shame that it was watered...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 ( 9 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I am grateful to my noble friend for his support on that point. We on our Benches look forward to the consultation in due course and hope that the department will continue to engage with proponents of community wealth funds. Such funds could play an interesting and, we think, valuable role in levelling up and empowering local communities seeking their own solutions to local problems, a...

Dormant Assets Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 to 4 ( 9 Chw 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: I remind the noble Lord that he did not answer my last question regarding reviewing the future of other dormant assets. If he is unable to do so at this point, I am happy to receive correspondence on the topic.

Racism in English Cricket - Question (26 Ion 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, we have heard this afternoon a litany of responses which focus on racism, and rightly so. For our part, it is very frustrating to see the responses of senior people in cricket, and others across the sport, who are determined to bury their heads in the sand on this issue. The announcement that Clare Connor will lead a review into dressing room culture in the men’s and women’s...

UEFA Euro 2020 Final - Question (26 Ion 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what progress they have made with football authorities towards addressing the (1) safety, and (2) security, implications of the report by Baroness Casey of Blackstone An independent Review of events surrounding the UEFA Euro 2020 Final ‘Euro Sunday’ at Wembley, published on 3 December 2021.

UEFA Euro 2020 Final - Question (26 Ion 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Casey, described the crowd events at Wembley’s Euro final as a “near miss” for fatalities and life-changing injuries and said that we need a national conversation about kicking racism and hooliganism out of football. Can the Minister tell us what plans the Government have for taking forward her six recommendations in full to improve safety, security...

BBC Funding - Statement (25 Ion 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, in truth, we know that this Statement was about distraction—a vindictive distraction at that—away from the Prime Minister’s behaviour during lockdown, the Government’s unlawful VIP lane for Covid contracts and their continued refusal to deal with our country’s cost of living crisis. The Secretary of State pleads that she is interested in the cost of living crisis; if she...

Post Office: Horizon Compensation - Private Notice Question (24 Ion 2022)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I would like to return to the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Arbuthnot. It seems quite wrong that a company that knew what it was doing, knew that the kit was faulty, and knew that mistakes were being made has not been involved in this case. They should be making payments to the Government so that the Government can fully compensate all those who have being wrongfully...
