Telegraph Media Group: Proposed Sale to RedBird IMI - Commons Urgent Question (31 Ion 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I find myself in the somewhat novel position of fiercely defending the interests of the Telegraph newspaper group and the Spectator in the interests of press freedom. There was a fairly remarkable debate in the Commons yesterday because, on a Question about transparency and protecting democracy, the Minister’s answer was mainly that she could not answer any questions. I must...

BBC: Funding - Question (17 Ion 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords—

BBC: Funding - Question (17 Ion 2024)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, during Monday’s BBC Question, references were made to the threats posed by disinformation and, in particular, the value of the BBC, which is seen as a trusted provider of news both at home and abroad. The Minister said that it was “a beacon that shines brightly around the world”.—[ Official Report, 15/1/24; col. 222.] With that in mind, does he welcome the recent launch and...

Data Protection and Digital Information Bill - Second Reading (19 Rha 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, first I want to thank all those noble Lords who have spoken today, and actually, one noble Baroness who has not: my colleague, the noble Baroness, Lady Jones. I am sure the whole House will want to wish her a safe and speedy recovery. While I am name-checking, I would also like to join in the general congratulation of the noble Lord, Lord de Clifford, who, as others have observed,...

Elgin Marbles - Question for Short Debate (14 Rha 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Lexden. I thank him for enabling this valuable debate to take place today. I reflect that the debate shows just how differently history can be interpreted by people with different views and perspectives, and those interpretations make for an interesting discussion. Like the noble Lord, Lord McNally, I found some interesting points...

Loot Boxes in Video Games - Question (13 Rha 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, whether it is the two-year gap between the Government’s call for evidence and their response, or the further year-long wait for the games industry to announce guidelines, efforts to tackle child access to loot boxes and other in-game features with gambling-like features have been far too slow, in our view. Like others, we hope that voluntary arrangements will work, but if they do...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Second Reading ( 5 Rha 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the Minister, who has very ably set out the purposes behind this much-needed and long-awaited Bill. I hope he has not given it a fake review or indulged in any drip pricing in his opening salvo. Our Labour colleagues in the Commons made it clear during the passage of the Bill in another place that we are fully behind the intents of the Bill. Indeed,...

Artificial Intelligence: Regulation - Question ( 4 Rha 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the Minister referred earlier to new risks. Sadly, the rapid development of AI has given rise to deepfake video and audio of political leaders, most recently the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan. We debated such issues during the passage of the Online Safety Act, but many were left feeling that the challenges that AI poses to our democratic processes were not sufficiently addressed. With a...

Artificial Intelligence: Regulation - Question (14 Tach 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask His Majesty’s Government, following the action taken by the United States in respect of regulating artificial intelligence, including the recent signing of an Executive Order, whether they have plans to introduce similar provisions in UK law.

Artificial Intelligence: Regulation - Question (14 Tach 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, I am a little disappointed in the Minister’s response, but we welcome the discussions that took place at Bletchley Park. While the Prime Minister says he will not rush to regulate, as the Minister knows, other jurisdictions— the US and the EU—are moving ahead. Labour in government would act swiftly to implement a number of checks on firms developing this most powerful form of...

Counter-Disinformation Unit: Israel and Palestine - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, the House has previously debated the role and work of the Counter-Disinformation Unit. I do not think anybody was particularly convinced by the assurances which the Minister gave back in July. These issues have been brought into sharp focus by recent events. At the time of that last debate, we were promised a meeting. Unless our Front Bench was left off the invite list, I am not...

Royal Albert Hall Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: There is a point which we need to reflect on. In putting his argument, the noble Lord is seeking to protect those who have a conflict of interest. He is right that the hall can have a commercial side to its charitable practice, but it cannot surely be right that seat-holders be able to exploit its being a charity. Those seats are sold by seat-holders at a vastly inflated commercial rate that...

Royal Albert Hall Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, as all other Peers have said this lunchtime, we are enormously grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Harrington of Watford, for facilitating this Second Reading debate. As I understand it, it is something of a rarity for private Bills of this kind. We should also be grateful to the noble Lord for the transparent way in which he described and set out the Bill, and his particular role and...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Computer Viruses (27 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask His Majesty's Government, over the past 12 months, how many individual devices issued by government departments have been identified as containing malware.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Cybercrime (27 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask His Majesty's Government how many (1) successful, and (2) unsuccessful, cyberattacks have been identified in each government department over the past 12 months.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Public Sector and Schools: Cybersecurity (25 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: To ask His Majesty's Government, following several recent school closures resulting from cyberattacks, what steps they are taking to ensure (1) schools, and (2) other public services, have good cyber resilience.

EU Programmes - Statement ( 7 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, what a climbdown; what a humiliation. When it comes to Horizon Europe, the response is straightforward: “At last, what a relief”. The UK’s absence from Horizon has been enormously damaging to our national interest. It has cost our research, business and academic communities dear, with the loss of billions in funding as well as jobs and expertise—the very things that the...

EU Programmes - Statement ( 7 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: Can the Minister clarify in which year, during any of the time that we were part of Horizon, we ever needed to have a clawback arrangement? My understanding was that we were net beneficiaries from Horizon for the entirety of the programme.

Commonwealth Games - Question ( 7 Med 2023)

Lord Bassam of Brighton: My Lords, this has happened a few times before. Can the Minister ensure that His Majesty’s Government do more to facilitate discussions on the future direction of the competition? Does it need to be reinvented somehow or does more thought need to be given to reducing the costs to hosts? Would it perhaps be more sustainable if the frequency of the Games was varied to match economic needs?...
