Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: As I said, it is long-standing practice. Indeed, the Secretary of State concerned made a statement this morning at the Lords Science and Technology Committee and explained the circumstances in full, including how she was engaged in official work and got support from officials on the disputed letter.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I think the Secretary of State explained very fully. It took the course of two days to draft, clear and send the letter to UKRI’s CEO to ask for an investigation. She highlighted it on X, using the same medium as the original issue.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Secretary of State has explained her actions fully. I refer noble Lords to her statement. The important thing is that legal advice was taken, and subsequently there was a full and final settlement of the dispute. The Secretary of State made it clear that she should have sent the letter in confidence to UKRI and apologised for that. The basic principle is that it is very important that...

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Secretary of State is responsible for the non-departmental public body UK Research and Innovation. She was operating in that context. Her intentions were always to do the right thing. It is very important that Ministers can do this. Of course, insurance is available to MPs, which is provided by the House at the taxpayers’ expense, in cases where professional indemnity insurance covers...

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The truth is—as I know well—that as a Government Minister you do work late. Government officials often work late as well. This is a serious point about how to make sure that Ministers are properly advised on issues. That is what happened on this occasion.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: On extremism, as the Prime Minister said in his very important speech two weeks ago, we have seen an unacceptable rise in extremist activity that seeks to divide our society and hijack our democratic institutions. It is our duty to ensure that the Government have all the tools that they need to tackle this ever-evolving threat.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I do not see it that way. The Secretary of State gave evidence this morning to the Lords Science and Technology Committee. There was a brief discussion of this matter. They then moved on to discuss important points about science, which she and this Government are extremely supportive of and have done so much to make sure that the UK is one of the leaders in the world in science and technology...

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Advice to the Prime Minister, including from the ethics adviser, is not something that we would comment on.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The statement the Secretary of State made this morning was full and clear. I have a great deal of respect for the Secretary of State. The action she took in the aftermath of 7 October was very understandable. We have now moved forward and resolved this. We should be caring about how we improve science and technology in this country.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I have explained the circumstances about why the taxpayer gets involved in legal expenses. I note the noble Lord’s point.

Ministers: Legal Costs - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My understanding is that the legal expenditure was approved by the department’s accounting officer. That was made clear. I believe that the Permanent Secretary was there with the Secretary of State. I refer noble Lords to her statement, to all that she has done, and to the fact that she apologised to move this matter on.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Public Consultation (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The UK Government has a set of consultation principles which give guidance to government departments and other public bodies on the principles they should adopt for engaging with stakeholders on developing policy and legislation. These principles encourage policy makers to consider what they are seeking to achieve through any consultation when determining when, with whom and how to consult....

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Energy (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Within the Government Property Agency managed estate of 65 sites, 100% of these are confirmed to have smart meters installed. Data for other sites would need to be provided by the utility provider or by Departments managing those sites. The transition to a more flexible energy system plays a vital role in decarbonising the Government office portfolio. Smart meters are one simple step on...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Public Sector: Vetting (11 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: As Minister for State at the Cabinet Office responsible for United Kingdom Security Vetting (UKSV) I am able to provide a response in relation to National Security Vetting (NSV). Police Vetting and NSV remain two separate and distinct processes. Whilst all police personnel are required to undertake a level of police vetting, only police personnel within certain specific roles are required to...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: The Elizabeth Emblem (11 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Deputy Prime Minister has today laid in Parliament a paper setting out the details of ‘The Elizabeth Emblem’, a new award to honour those who have died in the course of public service. The recognition will be in the form of an emblem for the next of kin to wear at their discretion, with a memorial scroll and miniature included. The Elizabeth Emblem is silver in colour and in the form...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Stormont Brake ( 7 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The scope of the Stormont Brake is provided for in domestic law under the Windsor Framework (Democratic Scrutiny) Regulations 2024. The restoration of the devolved institutions in Northern Ireland allowed those regulations to come into force and facilitated new democratic safeguards that would be unavailable to the people of Northern Ireland if the failure of those institutions to function...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Security and Intelligence Agencies - Contingencies Fund Advance ( 7 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Security and Intelligence Agencies have presented a Supplementary Estimate for approval to Parliament in the Central Government Supply Estimates booklet (HC 500, published on 27 February). Full details can be found on www.gov.uk. As it will be some time before the associated legislation receives Royal Assent, the Agencies are seeking an advance from the Contingencies Fund in order to meet...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Blood: Contamination ( 6 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: First, and most importantly, the suffering of the victims must be recognised. The Government understands that no measures can fully compensate for the losses and hardships that they have suffered. The priority here must be to ensure that victims get the justice they deserve. We are actively looking at the recommendations of the Inquiry, including the recommendation for more interim payments....

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Northern Ireland Protocol ( 6 Maw 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Windsor Framework disapplies swathes of EU rules that applied under the old Northern Ireland Protocol to support internal UK trade. It completely carves out whole areas of EU law on issues such as VAT, medicines and food. Those limited areas that remain apply principally in order to secure NI access to the EU market.
