Local Enterprise Partnerships: Funding - Question (11 Rha 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, surely all this bureaucracy and red tape is not the answer for some parts of our country that are in need of development. As one of those involved in the establishment of development corporations in the late 1980s, I think we should be proud of such a model. Frankly, is it not about time we allowed local businesses and local people to have a stronger say in what they want to...

NHS: General Medical Practitioners - Question (20 Tach 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that it is also important to congratulate GPs and practices that are introducing innovations, such as weekend working, and their attention to the patients? They get an awful lot of attacks, but in my view they are in need of some congratulation as well.

King’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (15 Tach 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while we reflect on His Majesty’s first King’s Speech, it was the speech of my right honourable friend the Prime Minister at the Lord Mayor of London’s Banquet that really caught my attention ahead of today’s debate. In opening, he referred to foreign relations and stated: “Events far beyond our shores echo here at home”. That is undoubtedly true, but I believe that we...

Flying Schools: Liquidation - Question (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as one of those who benefited from learning to fly at a municipal flying school, I am concerned that a number of flying schools are ceasing to trade. I wonder therefore whether my noble friend can do more to encourage our UK-registered airlines; in particular, to make sure that they train their future pilots at UK flying schools rather than at flying schools in other parts of the world.

Ultra-processed Food - Question (26 Hyd 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, most people would be very concerned to know what ultra-processed food means. People who rely on staples such as bread, cereals, sausages, gravy, fruit juice, baked beans and biscuits would be very surprised to hear us talking about those as ultra-processed food and how bad it is for you. Some people say that five ingredients or more puts food into this category. While we should...

Artificial Intelligence: Regulation - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of existing regulations and practices in relation to artificial intelligence, and what plans they have to monitor and control artificial intelligence (1) in the UK, and (2) in cooperation with international partners.

Artificial Intelligence: Regulation - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I welcome the Government hosting the AI summit at Bletchley Park, which is an opportunity to define the guard-rails on the use and misuse of AI with international partners. AI is borderless, as we know, so co-operation with others such as the USA, China and the EU is vital. Given the advances in draft legislation on AI by our neighbours in the EU, what plans do the Government have...

Farming: Net Zero - Question (20 Med 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I pay tribute to Minette Batters, the current president of the National Farmers’ Union, who is in her last year in that post. The challenges of the farming industry have been enormous in recent years, not only in relation to net zero but much more widely. Can the Minister therefore say today that assistance will be given whenever necessary to encourage more people to enter the...

Electronic Trade Documents Act 2023 - Question (14 Med 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while supporting my noble friend Lord Holmes, I want to ask my noble friend the Minister two questions. The first is about the transferability back into a paper form in cases where there has to be default due to a lack of digital experience. Secondly and perhaps more importantly, given that other international bodies have not yet come on board with this very useful initiative by the...

Asylum Applications Backlog - Question ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: While the application numbers should, of course, reduce—it is very important for this to be an initiative by the Government —do we not also have to look at the removals of those who fail to meet the criteria under the 1951 convention? Is my noble friend satisfied that we have discussed enough with the countries of origin—I emphasise “origin”—of these applicants that they will take...

Military Vehicles: Repair - Question ( 4 Med 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Will my noble friend comment on the interoperability of our equipment and munitions with those of other NATO countries? Historically, there have been concerns that we have been doing our own thing, as it were, and minimising the effect that we can have working together. Is my noble friend happy about the level of interoperability, and do we need to do more?

MMR Vaccine - Question (20 Gor 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as my noble friend has referred to, it is very important that young people, children, get vaccinations when they are due, but the current government campaign to encourage adults to have a shingles jab, and indeed other areas, seems to point out—I have heard this from GPs—that the fact that adults are not now taking boosters for things such as tetanus, and other areas where...

Leasehold Properties: Managing Agents - Question (17 Gor 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend refers to leasehold, but is it not correct that all the other professionals involved in residential property transactions—I declare an interest as a solicitor—are very tightly controlled indeed in respect of fees and their conduct, bearing in mind the extra responsibilities, such as sales and purchases, now placed on professionals? Why are we not more determined...

Domestic Animals: Welfare - Question (13 Gor 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister is aware of the increasing number of attacks on young children by dogs. Some terrible things are happening as a result of dog owners’ negligence. Does my noble friend agree that we should spend more of our resources on educating people who want dogs, so that they look after them, discipline them and make sure that these awful attacks do not take place?

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 161A ( 5 Gor 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I put my name to Amendment 164. I will speak strongly but briefly in support of my noble friend Lady Stroud. I spoke to this matter in Committee. What a disappointment it is that the Government and many of their spokesmen have made it perfectly plain that they are going to introduce safe and legal routes but, as others have said, without any clarity at all as to what they mean....

Income Tax Threshold - Question ( 4 Gor 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend is quite right about the need to tackle inflation above all else. In the same way as the Government are discouraging excessive wage demands because they are inflationary, is it not correct that any attempt to change the tax system to chase inflation would be equally dangerous for the economy?

Artificial Intelligence - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend the Minister and the Government on getting involved in international negotiations and discussions in this area. However, is this not an area where we have to be careful that we do not have a situation where there is nothing to fear but fear itself, and where we will lose out, if we are not careful, in having overregulation that prevents us using AI to...

Ukraine: Ministry of Defence Strategy - Question (15 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, can my noble friend give us some more information about the very welcome meeting of the JEF in Amsterdam on 13 June? I congratulate my noble friend on the initiatives on behalf of this country to support the people of Ukraine, but can she let us know more about the air defence package that was agreed on 13 June and seems most helpful and most exciting?

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 139C (14 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, it is a great honour for me to support this amendment in the name of the most reverend Primate. In opening my remarks I want to say that here we have a Bill called the Illegal Migration Bill. I say that the illegality which we should always address first is the illegality of the people who traffic those who are brought to our country —the criminals that we ought to be searching...
