Media Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 14 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, Amendments 14 and 15 in the name of the noble Viscount, Lord Culross, seek to finesse the Channel 4 commissioning regime that has worked so well for this highly innovative channel. I was one of the sceptics when Channel 4 was first thought of, and I remember writing an article which challenged the model. However, I have been proven wrong over those 40-plus years. As the noble...

Media Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, this has been a fascinating debate, capped by a single show of dichotomy from the noble Lord, Lord Vaizey. I am sure that most of us found it both entertaining and enlightening, in line with true Reithian values. As we draw this debate to a close, we should congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Bull, on tabling her amendments in this group. As we have heard, they broadly relate to...

Telegraph Media Group Ltd: Acquisition - Statement ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, we on the Labour Benches are grateful today to the Government for this short Statement, setting out where they are on the future acquisition of the Telegraph Media Group. As the House knows, we have been steadfast in our support for a free and independent press across the political spectrum. We will always champion the right of a free press to hold power to account, speak hard...

Telegraph Media Group Ltd: Acquisition - Statement ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: It is the cricket I like.

Gambling Advertising - Question for Short Debate (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I join with others in thanking the noble Lord, Lord Foster, for bringing forward this topic for short debate. It is timely, and he is an indefatigable campaigner on this issue. It is often said that we all like a flutter, and it is probably true, although you would struggle to get me to buy more than a raffle ticket. For most who choose to take part, it is an enjoyable and harmless...

Lord Byron: 200th Anniversary - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, Lord Byron is rightly canonised as being symbolic of the international contribution that UK art and literature make to the world. Byron himself once said: “But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think”. In Greece, they celebrate National Byron Day on 19 April. Does the Minister...

Regional Arts Facilities - Question (27 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I know the Minister supports Labour’s view of a positive approach to the arts and to culture. The UK originates blockbuster films; it is one of only three net exporters of music; we are the second-largest advertising supporter and the largest book exporter; and the cultural sector, as the Minister well knows, supports 2.5 million jobs and is worth £125 billion. Yet, in 2021, the...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (26 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, this has been a fascinating and illuminating series of speeches on the potential foreign ownership of UK news titles, particularly the Telegraph and the Spectator, by RedBird IMI. I echo the words of the noble Baroness, Lady Stowell: this is a much larger issue than that newspaper group. There is a fundamental principle involved here, which is why all sides of the House wanted to...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (26 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Can the Minister also clarify the point about online publications? Will these be included within the statutory instrument?

Human Rights: Sportswashing - Motion to Take Note (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, is to be heartily congratulated this afternoon on bringing forward this topic for debate. I am not sure what hotline he has to the heart of government, but his foresight in choosing this issue for this week—the week in which the Government plucked up the courage to publish their football regulation Bill—is to be admired. Like me, he sees the...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 67 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, in order to help, can we be absolutely clear that this covers minority ownership and control? We need clarity on that. The noble Lord, Lord Moore, made that point. It would help the House for the avoidance of doubt.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 67 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I think the whole House is grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Stowell, for the way in which she set out the arguments behind her amendment, and for the clarity, force and power of her voice in putting those arguments forward. We are also grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, for the way in which he has argued his case—not once, but twice, and several other times too, when he...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, we are very grateful—we are always very grateful, actually—to the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for tabling this amendment, which raises a valid concern around the suitability of the current provisions in Section 58 of the Enterprise Act. We take the view that the world has changed significantly since that legislation was put on the statute book. It was changed as a result of...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I promise that I am not going to stand for too long between this session and people’s desire to have supper. I have a few words to say, but I will try to keep them as brief as I can. This group of amendments deals with the interaction of the courts with regulation and redress, and we obviously support Amendment 61, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, on exemplary...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, as the Minister described, this group has government amendments, from Amendment 2 to Amendment 38, which add greater transparency to the process adopted by the CMA in disclosing information about cases involving SMS status firms where the challenger companies have an interest. We are pleased with the Minister’s amendments and, broadly speaking, happy to give them our support, as...

Media Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (28 Chw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Does the Minister have a sense of the timetable for this review to be completed?

Media Bill - Second Reading (28 Chw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I will start with a reference to the amendment to the Motion laid by the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth. I fully understand the noble Lord’s frustrations. Concerns and questions over this issue have been raised multiple times in both Houses. I have asked previously whether the Government have any plans to review rules on media ownership and to date have received no answer. We recognise...

AI: “Nudify” Apps - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the Government have been far too complacent on this issue. During the passage of the then Online Safety Bill, we warned a number of times that, given that this is a fast-moving technology, as the Minister says, the Government needed to get ahead of the game. Given the proliferation of these ghastly images and the appalling impact this has on people’s lives, does the Minister now...

Combating Disinformation: Freedom of Expression - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the issue is much more complex than that. I am concerned that the unit to which the Minister referred seems to be concerned only about security issues now. In December, I asked the Minister about the rise of political deepfakes, which often originate from overseas and have the potential to undermine trust in political leaders and our wider democratic processes. With the Data...

Arts - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Chw 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, it is a great privilege to take part in this debate on the contribution of the arts to the economy and society. It is even more of an honour to take part in a debate led by my noble friend Lord Bragg. For most of my adult life, he has been the cultural advocate to follow and one whose opinions on the arts, artists and the art world have shaped much of the national conversation. His...
