Zoological Society of London (Leases) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I will very briefly add my thanks to my noble friend Lord Randall of Uxbridge, who has stewarded the Bill expertly through your Lordships’ House, not least in the last 24 hours, when he has been a redoubtable champion for it. I echo his thanks to our honourable friend Bob Blackman MP, who championed it in another place. I thank my noble friend the Chief Whip, who sprang like a gazelle into...

Zoological Society of London (Leases) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: A member of the most excellent Privy Council has to give King’s consent, so I suggest that the House adjourn during pleasure for two minutes so that a privy counsellor can join the Government Front Bench. Sitting suspended.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: War Memorials (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: War memorials play a very important role in our cultural heritage, holding a deep emotional resonance with people across the country. HM Government will never forget the great bravery, selflessness, and distinction of all the servicemen and women who served their country during times of conflict, and it is only right that appropriate steps be taken to protect the many war memorials that...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Libraries (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Arts Council England collects data from local authorities and publishes a basic dataset of information on public libraries in England. The dataset for 2022 shows the number of libraries in England (both statutory and non-statutory) from April 2010 to 31 December 2022, and includes information on the number of mobile vehicles operating. It can be found here. The Public Libraries and Museums...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Television Licences: Fees and Charges (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: It has not proved possible to respond to this question in the time available before Prorogation. Ministers will correspond directly with the Member.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Motion (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I am grateful to noble Lords for their understanding and flexibility today. This is my first wash-up.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Motion (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Yes, I feel very clean at the end of it—thoroughly washed. I am grateful to noble Lords who have given this Bill considerable scrutiny in pre-legislative scrutiny and during our debates on Second Reading and in Committee. As I have said throughout, it has been amended through the pre-legislative scrutiny it received. I am glad that we have been able to reflect some of our debate in...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 14 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Astor for outlining his amendment today. We debated much the same amendment yesterday. I will speak to it and the other amendments in this group. The Government are committed to a free and independent press which, as I said, is vital to our democracy. There now exists a strengthened, independent, self-regulatory system for the press. The...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Bassam, said, this has been a long debate, as our debate yesterday was, but I am not sure that it has shed much light for us to be blinded by. The noble Lord, Lord Watson of Wyre Forest, inadvertently put it rather well when he said that this was not a debate that was likely to change anyone’s mind. This reflects an old debate, one which began well over a...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 1 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Lord will not be surprised that I do not agree with his final points. But I agree on the importance of local television, which we have heard about in our debates. Local television services continue to play an important role in the wider broadcasting system, adding great value to communities, including during the pandemic as well as in normal times. The Government remain committed to...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 1 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, we are back for Report stage of the Bill rather sooner than we anticipated when we had our Committee debates earlier this week. By necessity and through the process of wash-up, the conversation and debate will be different to the one we would have had, if the Bill had proceeded at a normal pace. I hope that, in my time at the Dispatch Box, I have gained a reputation for listening to...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Museums and Galleries: Disadvantaged (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Like the Noble Lord, I was delighted to visit the Mobile Museum when it visited Tate Britain on 13 May and to hear how it has been bringing exceptional art from our national collection to people across the country. Its recent, specially-curated exhibition, 'Soup, Socks and Spiders! Art of the Everyday' focusing on still lifes, was shared with people in Nuneaton, Walsall, Ashfield, Wigan,...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I certainly think it would be prudent for Ofcom to consider that. It is a matter for Ofcom, and it is important that I do not put words in its mouth as an independent regulator, but it is important that it can do that and make its representations to the Government, to Parliament and publicly, in an independent way. On the extent to which it has done so to date, it is probably better if I set...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Thank you. Let me turn to the questions posed by my noble friend Baroness Stowell. She asked when we should expect to see the regulations relating to online news. We will shortly consult on expanding the existing media measures regime and the foreign state ownership provisions to include online news websites. That will enable us to make changes which ensure that online news, whether from an...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am very happy to do that. In relation to Ofcom’s review, my noble friend draws a helpful distinction. It is clear from the debate—which I am sure the noble Lord, Lord Grade of Yarmouth, has heard—what Parliament is keen for Ofcom to do. There is a material difference between Parliament sending a message and government sending a message. Ofcom is an independent regulator. I am sure...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 88 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Certainly—to make the noble Lord, Lord Grade, blush. He will, I am sure, read the tiny portion of Hansard covering the part of the debate that he missed.

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 88 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: He can frame it, indeed. I commend him for his presence in these debates and his occasional contributions, which have been very helpful. It has been extremely valuable to have him here for the passage of this Bill, just as it was for the passage of the Online Safety Act, which also gives a huge amount of new work to the regulator. I had tried to address the questions from the noble Lord, Lord...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, an afternoon is certainly a long time in politics and the noble Lord, Lord Bassam, is probably right that this is a good moment to thank all noble Lords who have given detailed consideration to the Bill in Committee, and indeed during its pre-legislative scrutiny. It has been fortunate in the sense that it was scrutinised before it came to your Lordships’ House, it was improved by...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 88 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I thank the noble Lord and the noble Baroness. I will address Amendment 88 first. The noble Lord, Lord Foster of Bath, brought up an important point about Ofcom’s impartiality and the process for appointing its chairman. I join him in commending the noble Lord, Lord Grade of Yarmouth, the current chairman, on his ongoing work to steer Ofcom through a time of great regulatory change—I...

Media Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 83 (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I turn first to Amendments 83 and 86 tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins, which, if taken together, would intend not only to keep Section 40 on the statute book but to amend its subsections (1) and (2), so that the protections offered by subsection (2) apply not only to relevant publishers but to individuals employed by relevant publishers. This would protect journalists...
