Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (25 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: Could I ask my noble and learned friend to amplify what it is in the way that the protocol is working that was not anticipated? The role of the European court was always enshrined in the protocol, so I am struggling to understand what has suddenly changed to require this unilateral action to get rid of the CJEU, rather than using the mechanisms within the protocol.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (25 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, with all due respect to the noble Lord, Lord Bew, and in due deference to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, and the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, I will now inject the perspective of an economist and businessperson. I support Amendments 3 and 67 and will try to inject a different perspective here. The arguments about protecting the Good Friday agreement are of course important and...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment to the Amendment to the Motion (25 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I shall not detain the House. We have had a very good debate. I thank my noble friend for his words and beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Baroness Altmann’s amendment (to Baroness Chapman of Darlington’s amendment to the Motion) withdrawn.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment to the Amendment to the Motion (25 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I would like to add my support to the remarks of the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman, and to her amendment; my amendment simply adds extra requests for what I believe is vital information to be provided to Parliament before Report stage. I would also like to express my gratitude to colleagues across the House for their engagement with discussions on this Bill, and indeed I would like...

Economic Situation - Commons Urgent Question (13 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, can my noble friend confirm that the Bank of England itself has played a role in what has been happening in the markets? Are there discussions between the Treasury and the independent Bank of England to urge it to extend, if necessary, the emergency measures that it has brought in, which are meant to expire tomorrow, to give the Chancellor an opportunity to restore confidence in the...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I thank my noble friend, his department and our Whips for their engagement with my serious concerns about this Bill. I have great sympathy with my noble friend on the Front Bench; I cannot imagine he has been in a very comfortable position recently given what is contained in this Bill. As my noble friends know, I cannot support this Bill but I am delighted that there are...

Care Homes: Energy Costs - Question ( 8 Med 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, will my noble friend look into the situation of care homes, whether they are in the private sector or not, that have not currently participated in the government handouts to help with energy costs? Second home owners have had discounts on their bills, but there has been no per-bed contribution from the Government to help care homes which are already struggling and for which many...

North Sea Gas - Question ( 7 Med 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, following on from the questions of my noble friends Lord Bridges and Lord Cormack, I ask my noble friend to relay back to his department the concerns that have been expressed about the UK’s potential non-attendance at the meeting on Friday, and perhaps report back to interested Peers whether it is possible for the UK to be represented in the middle of an energy crisis in a meeting...

Integrated Care Boards - Question ( 5 Med 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, could my noble friend update the House on the scheme for bringing in overseas workers to fill the gaps in social care that have opened up so seriously over the last year or two? There have been suggestions that the salary level—which currently does not allow sufficient numbers of care workers to come into the UK, when they are desperately needed—might be lowered. Is there any...

Crypto Asset Technology - Question (21 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, given the cybersecurity and the anonymous and open nature of risks in blockchains, this seems to be rather inconsistent with money laundering rules in the rest of the financial system. Can my noble friend comment on inconsistencies in the environmental protection issues that this Government have worked so hard to achieve, given the environmental dangers of the proof-of-work...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Social Services: Migrant Workers (15 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many social care workers earning more than £20,480 they estimate will be recruited from overseas as a result of the new immigration visa rules; and what proportion of staff vacancies are expected to be filled further to those rules.

Energy: Prices and Supply - Question (14 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, commendably, the Government are trying to shield households from these excessive rises in energy costs. However, will my noble friend consider carefully the excellent point made by our noble friend Lord Howell: that cutting fuel duties could indeed set up a virtuous circle? Given the extent of the rise in fuel costs, households surely need time to transition to this higher-cost...

Covid-19 Lockdown: Fixed Penalty Notices - Question (14 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that it is important to uphold the rule of law? Many colleagues across the House will know that I disagreed fundamentally with the extent of the lockdowns and the extent to which they were prolonged—I would have preferred Sweden’s approach—but, given that it is the law and that we need trust in policing, the idea that someone who has broken the law...

Tax Cuts: Fiscal Impact - Question (13 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that there would be widespread opportunity for cutting taxes for millions of people across the country if the tax base was widened, such as by taxing large online companies or being rather less generous on offshore taxation? There is also the potential for reform of council tax and business rates, which could bring in more revenue.

Written Answers — Home Office: Migrant Workers: Health Services and Social Services (12 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many of the total number of Health and Care Worker visas issued in Q1 2022 were issued to people due to work in (1) the health sector, and (2) the social care sector.

Coronavirus: New Cases - Private Notice Question (11 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that we have lived with flu all our lives? I completely agree with his assertion that if this illness is not proving more deadly than illnesses we have lived with for a long time, what would be the purpose of upsetting the economic recovery and causing so much extra cost to the public purse—unless, as he rightly says, serious hospitalisation cases and...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Internet and WiFi (11 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask Her Majesty's Government what proportion of people in the UK aged (1) 20–39, (2) 40–59, (3) 60–79, and (4) 80 and over, have no (a) internet, or (b) Wi-Fi, access in their own home.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Phones (11 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask Her Majesty's Government what proportion of people in the UK aged (1) 20–39, (2) 40–59, (3) 60–79, and (4) 80 and over, do not own a smartphone.

Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 8 Gor 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I too welcome Rosamund Kissi-Debrah and congratulate her on all the work that she has done on behalf of her daughter, Ella. I also congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, on all the work that she has done in putting together this comprehensive Bill, and on its aims. She has done much work over the years on this issue in other Bills too, and it is a lovely idea to talk about...
