Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Civil Servants: Wales (17 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Prime Minister’s announcement of longer term reductions in Civil Service numbers is a reiteration of the policy announced by the Chancellor in October 2023. The longer term reductions will build on the shorter term headcount cap put in place through to March 2025. The detail of how individual organisations will be affected by the return to pre-pandemic numbers will form a key part of...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Conflict, Stability and Security Fund and UK Integrated Security Fund (17 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Integrated Security Fund (ISF) aims to integrate gender and human security concerns throughout all our programming. This includes cooperation with defence actors and support for women, girls, and other marginalised groups to engage with defence and security providers. The Fund supports activities which can be read about in more detail in the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF)...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Suicide (17 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The information requested falls under the remit of the UK Statistics Authority. Please see the letter attached from the National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority. The Lord Farmer House of Lords London SW1A 0AA 8 May 2024 Dear Lord Farmer, As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am responding to your Parliamentary...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Cabinet Office and Prime Minister: Staff (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Prime Minister's Office is an integral part of the Cabinet Office for both management and staffing purposes and is not a standalone department. The total of c15,000 includes the UK Statistics Authority which is a non-ministerial department and is a government department in its own right, accountable to parliament through its sponsoring ministers and therefore should not be included in the...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: UK Trade with EU (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Government has undertaken extensive engagement with EU Member States to reduce any risk of disruption to trade as a result of the new requirements. This included Ministerial engagement in the joint UK / EU Domestic Advisory Group session at the start of January 2024, enabling EU trade associations to engage directly on their outstanding queries ahead of the Border Target Operating Model...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Import Controls (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Border Target Operating Model (BTOM) has been designed with traders and consumers at the forefront. Our global risk-based approach harnesses data and technology to help reduce administrative burden for businesses. Further, most fruit and vegetables are currently treated as low risk and will not require any additional paperwork or checks. A limited number of meat and dairy products have...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government: Recruitment (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Preventing fraudulent job postings is of importance to the government and Civil Service roles are mainly listed on our secure Civil Service Jobs website. They may also appear elsewhere on third party job websites. At present, there is no policy which stipulates that Civil Service roles should only be advertised on websites which are members of an industry-led anti-fraud certification scheme...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Overseas Trade: Small Businesses (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Government published the final Border Target Operating Model (BTOM) on 29 August 2023. It outlines new policies and processes that importers, the border industry and wider stakeholders including EU exporters will need to go through in order to import goods. We are implementing the BTOM in stages throughout 2024 to help industry get accustomed to the changes. We have worked extensively...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Supply Chains: Slavery (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Modern slavery has no place in public supply chains. We have taken action in the Procurement Act to strengthen the rules around excluding suppliers linked to modern slavery. The current rules require the supplier to have been convicted or there to have been a breach of international treaties banning forced labour, or evidence of grave professional misconduct. We recognise that modern slavery...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I note the point that the noble Baroness has made. We did reply to the Constitution Committee, but I will reflect further on this point. My noble friend Lady Noakes said that there had been some confusion due to the use of the term “person”, which I have already referred to. To respond to the point raised by the noble Lord, Lord Hendy, in the context of this clause, the legal term...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: As the noble Lord knows, the Bill aims to improve the situation with social cohesion. I note what he said, but we have seen examples of councils, such as Islington, passing motions in opposition to the Bill alongside foreign policy statements about Israel and other countries. While this might not be a breach of the ban, it demonstrates a strong interest in public authorities engaging in BDS...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: With respect to the noble Baroness, I have answered the large majority of the questions, but I said that I would take away the underlying question that she is enunciating.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, Amendment 33 to remove Clause 4(1)(b), moved by the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman, and the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Collins, to remove Clause 4, undermine the aims of the Bill. Before I address the amendments, I reiterate that the Government are committed to protecting freedom of speech, which is why the Bill’s provisions apply only to public authorities and...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I think that it is necessary to make these points within the framework of the Bill. I will move on and explain Clause 4, which, in its entirety, is an instrumental part of the Bill. It prohibits public bodies from publishing statements indicating that they intend to engage in activity prohibited by the Bill. That includes statements indicating that the public body would have acted differently...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I will come on to decision-makers. I reiterate that it is important that the Bill does not breach Article 10 of the ECHR on the right to freedom of speech, and I have already reiterated the Government’s support for free speech. The reason the Bill is compatible with the ECHR is that public authorities do not enjoy human rights, as the purpose of the convention is to protect individuals from...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The principle is that the person seeking to influence would not be caught by the Bill. The provision is to deal with a situation in which a public authority boycotts because of pressure from someone else, rather than its own disapproval of a foreign state.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I will take the noble Lord’s example away. I have given him a clear statement and he makes a reasonable point. I think there is an answer to it, but I will not just make it up; I want to give him a clear answer on that. Perhaps I can move on and deal with one or two other concerns.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 33 (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I am afraid that I am not familiar with that case, but I take the right reverend Prelate’s point. The way I have described this shows that in fact this is limited in intent; free speech is possible in a personal capacity. I will come on to say a little more about that and about decision-makers, because I know that we need to clear up those points and I am conscious of time. The noble...
