Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy: Meters ( 9 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to ensure that vulnerable customers fitted with a smart meter at home (1) understand how to use the meter, (2) have necessary training on how it operates, and (3) have the smart meter sited in a place that is accessible safely, should they need to press any buttons on it.

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to his place and congratulate him on his introduction. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Faulks. I, too, welcome the Bill and believe it will help clamp down on economic crime, money laundering, fraud, terrorist financing and many other ills that our system suffers from. I associate myself with and commend the remarks of my noble friends Lady...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy: Disconnections ( 8 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what protections they have in place to prevent energy firms from leaving households without power in their homes; and what penalties are imposed on energy firms that do not take sufficient care of vulnerable customers or which wrongly disconnect customers.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy: Price Caps ( 8 Chw 2023)

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) ( 6 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, in opening, my noble friend the Minister stated that the Bill will “benefit people and businesses”, but workers’ and employers’ organisations are united in their opposition to it: neither businesses nor consumers want the Bill. It would leave our country and its framework of rules, laws and protections in a state of prolonged uncertainty. The Secondary Legislation Scrutiny...

Broadband: Price - Question ( 2 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, will the Minister comment on the problems faced by vulnerable older people who might just have started trying to get tech-enabled and just signed up for a broadband contract? They do not understand how these things work, then are suddenly faced with a penalty if they try to change to a better rate and are locked into a contract that was never properly explained to them.

Vulnerable Households: Energy Costs - Question (31 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: Would my noble friend comment on the need to reform the standing charge for energy pricing? For the most vulnerable households and, for example, single-person households, regardless of how much they try to cut their energy use, they cannot escape the standing charge—which has in many cases doubled to several hundred pounds per year. I understand that part of the rationale for that is to...

Broadband: Social Tariffs - Question (31 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, many millions of people can neither afford to use internet broadband nor even own a smartphone, especially the elderly. Government figures suggest that more than 90% of people under 60 are digitally enabled, but approximately half of over-75s are not. Can my noble friend the Minister comment on the apparent age discrimination inherent in allowing the accessing of essential public...

Afghanistan: Women - Question (26 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I commend my noble friend on all the work he is doing in this area. I know how dedicated he is to trying to make improvements wherever he can. Will he join me in commending also the bravery of many of the women across the Middle East, and in other parts of the world, who are standing up and trying to protect the rights of women in those countries?

Prepayment Meters - Commons Urgent Question (24 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, will my noble friend take back to his department the need not only to look at the forcible installation of prepayment meters but the installation of smart meters? An elderly gentleman I know, living alone, had a smart meter installed. He did not wish that, but it was forced on him. It was installed somewhere he could not see it. He had to climb on to a stepladder to operate it....

Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (European Affairs Committee Sub-Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Jay, for his diplomatic handling of his remit and his excellent introduction to today’s debate. The fact that unionists, Brexiteers and remainers have all paid tribute is a testament to his skills. Of course, the hard Brexit chosen and the Northern Ireland protocol agreement signed must entail a democratic deficit; that is agreed by all...

International Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note (19 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Pickles, as others have done, on securing this important debate. I also thank our Government for the tremendous support they have provided to Holocaust remembrance. It is increasingly important to remember that terrible, dark time. My mother, born in Berlin, and my father, born in Vienna, fled to the UK in the 1930s but most of our families were...

Democracy Denied (DPRRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (12 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Fox. I urge noble Lords to heed the words of John Adams: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. … There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” We are in danger, as the two reports point out. The rallying cry in 2015 of those angered by so-called EU edicts urged people to vote to leave the EU to ensure...

National Health Service Pension Schemes (Member Contributions etc.) (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Regret (11 Ion 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Davies, on highlighting a really serious issue in terms of the workforce situation within the National Health Service. I commend him on his clarity and ability to explain an incredibly complicated situation. I also congratulate my noble friend and welcome him to his position. I know that he is in listening mode and that the Government really want...

Electricity: Decarbonisation - Question (21 Rha 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, another barrier to the delivery of net zero was the disappointing announcement on 14 December on the green taxonomy. Unlike the answer given by our noble friend Lady Penn on 3 November in this House, it suggested that the work might be delayed or even cancelled. Does my noble friend not agree that taxonomy of sustainable business services could help the financial services industry...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pension Credit: Applications (21 Rha 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government how many claims for Pension Credit have been waiting for more than (1) two, (2) three, (3) four, (4) five, and (5) six, months for approval; and what percentage of applications this comprises.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Pension Credit: Applications (21 Rha 2022)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to reduce the waiting times for Pension Credit applicants.

Cryptocurrencies - Question (20 Rha 2022)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I recognise the Government’s desire to be a leader in financial services and new technology. However, can my noble friend explain how we have managed to get cryptocurrencies approved and used under regulatory firms when their whole purpose is to evade the usual checks and balances in conventional financial systems? They have been a money launderers’ and a thieves’ paradise. We...
