House of Lords: Reform - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: It is important that the House is refreshed, and I have already explained that the current Prime Minister recently encouraged Labour to put forward candidates for peerages—I am particularly pleased to see the noble Lord, Lord Hannett, with whom I used to work when we were in retail together. The numbers change over time. There are large numbers on the Cross Benches as well as on the party...

House of Lords: Reform - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I agree that an elected Chamber has problems, because there would inevitably be a clash with the Commons and indeed the devolved legislatures. An appointed Chamber allows the Commons to prevail constitutionally and serve constituents across the country. Reform is not ruled out in the longer term but we have been very clear, certainly ever since I joined the Front Bench, that we should not...

House of Lords: Reform - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I agree with my noble friend, who always has good historical angles, that the Act was a great move forward. Many of us who are lucky enough to serve in this House benefit from that excellent constitutional change.

House of Lords: Reform - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I pay tribute to the work that the noble Lord, Lord Burns, and his committee did, but a number of Administrations have not signed up to those recommendations and have not wanted to move in the direction of a cap. I think I understand why. You want to focus on the number of Peers who attend, not simply the overall figure. As I have tried to explain, we have a mixture of full-time Peers and...

House of Lords: Reform - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: There were a lot of points there. There are many ideas for reform, some of which have a lot of merit, but to take the final point about making HOLAC statutory, I do not favour that. It is the prerogative of the Prime Minister and the sovereign to appoint. We really value the work done by HOLAC and its new chair, the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, in ensuring the propriety of proposals that come...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Ministers: Legal Costs (30 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: In line with the established practice under multiple administrations of all political colours, Ministers are provided with legal support and representation where matters relate to their conduct and responsibilities as a Minister. As set out in Chapter 6 of the Cabinet Manual, Ministers are indemnified by the Crown for any actions taken against them for things done or decisions made in the...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Blood: Contamination (30 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Government has committed to update Parliament through an oral statement on next steps within 25 sitting days following 20 May. It is our intention to make this statement as soon as possible. Additionally, we have tabled a Government amendment ahead of Report Stage of the Victims and Prisoners Bill to fix technical deficiencies, whilst working in the spirit of Dame Diana Johnson’s...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Immigration: Overseas Students (29 Ebr 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 Right Hon. the Lord Johnson of Marylebone House of Lords London SW1A 0PW 19 April 2024 Dear Lord Johnson, As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Lord-Lieutenants: Middlesex (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The creation of a Lieutenancy for Middlesex has been raised in previous PQs (HL9221, HL3471 and HL3783) and DLUHC has also received Ministerial Correspondence on the issue. No consideration is presently being given to wider public engagement on the issue.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Lord-Lieutenants: Middlesex (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: No consideration is being given to the creation of a Lieutenancy for Middlesex. Middlesex is covered by the Lieutenancies of Greater London, Surrey and Hertfordshire.

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Update on Government Security (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Government takes the security of the UK's citizens, systems and establishments extremely seriously and we have a range of measures in place to scrutinise the integrity of our arrangements. This was demonstrated in our recent updates on steps to prevent potential security risks materialising in light of the increasing capability and connectivity of visual surveillance systems. Our...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: The "State of the Estate in 2022-23" (19 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I have today laid before Parliament, pursuant to Section 86 of the Climate Change Act 2008, the “State of the Estate in 2022-23”. This report describes the progress made on improving the efficiency and sustainability of the central government estate and, where relevant, records the progress that Government has made since the previous year. The report is published on an annual basis, and...

Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: Economic Security (18 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Today, I am setting out a series of new steps to boost the UK’s economic defences and enhance the capabilities of the Government to respond to economic security threats. The openness of the UK economy is a reflection of our values, the driver of our prosperity and that which distinguishes us as democracies. As the Integrated Review Refresh set out last year, we are experiencing rising...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: If I may, I will come back to that at the end of the speech, because I want first to try to explain what we are doing with the devolved Administrations. The noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, said that the WTO already places non-discrimination requirements on public authorities. Although this is the case, these obligations do not cover all countries and territories and apply only to procurement...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I am not quite sure what will happen about Xinjiang; that is a foreign affairs question. Obviously, although it is not referred to in the Bill, we have made it clear that we will use the Bill, where appropriate, to exempt areas. We have already said we will use the powers in relation to Russia and Belarus. I am going to talk to the Welsh Government, and I am sure this is a question that will...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, the amendments put forward by the noble Baronesses, Lady Bryan of Partick and Lady Chapman of Darlington, and the noble Lord, Lord Hain, seek to remove Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland from the territorial application of this Bill. I am sorry that the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas, are not here tonight, as they usually are in these...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 14A (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: That example would not be procurement or investment, so it would be outside the scope of the Bill. However, the noble Baroness has raised the point. Sporting bodies can be within scope, as I explained, in procurement and investment decisions. The reason for this is that these bodies play a significant role in public life and it would send a very unhelpful signal if we were to single out...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 14A (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: It seems to me that the issue here is boycotting a sporting event, and that is not a procurement or investment decision—but I have already undertaken to look carefully at these individual examples, because we all want to understand exactly what we are talking about and to come to the right outcome. Amendment 24 would carve out community interest companies. While it is not inconceivable...
