Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My noble friend’s second interjection allows me to clarify an important point on timing. If he intends for this amendment to be in effect before the next general election, I must say to him that that is highly unlikely. Even if cross-party consensus were reached swiftly and changes were made to the Bill, the provisions in Schedule 5 would come into force only following the drafting and...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I was not sure whether the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, wanted to say anything further on the other amendments, but I am happy to come in now. As noble Lords know, following extensive public consultation on the topic, the Government set out their intention to legislate to give Ofcom powers to draft and enforce a new video on demand code similar to the Broadcasting Code, to ensure that...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I thank your Lordships. I thank my noble friend for raising this issue, as it gives me the opportunity to clarify on the record that the legislation as drafted will already enable Ofcom to draft the video on demand code to protect audiences from this type of harm. Ofcom is given an overarching duty to protect audiences from harm. The legislation does not need to list each and every potential...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: It is similar but different. We have not consulted the other parties on this issue, not least because my department does not have direct responsibility for the regulation of political advertising—that falls to others. Of course, we work across government on these issues, but the simple answer to my noble friend’s question is that we have not had that that consultation. On a matter such as...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35A (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: No, although if the other parties wish to talk about the matter which my noble friend has raised through his amendment, I am sure we would be happy to do so. However, without that consultation and cross-party conversation on it taking place, I would be wary of proceeding with it in the Bill.

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am loath to set out a precise timescale, but the noble Lord is right: it is a matter of looking at this more fully, as well as considering the complexities of how it could be borne out if it were concluded that that were necessary. I hope noble Lords will see, through the government amendments in this group, that we have worked with parliamentary counsel to respond to the points that were...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The House was stunned into silence by the revelation from the right reverend Prelate. I thank noble Lords for the contributions they have made and the points raised on the other amendments in this group. We, of course, had a bit of a pre-match friendly during our debate on sport led by the noble Lord, Lord Wood of Anfield, on Thursday. Let me start with Amendments 25 and 26 from the noble...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Yes, the Bill caters for the concerns that have been set out, but I will happily discuss that further with the noble Lord if on reflection he disagrees with the reasons I have set out. I turn now to the noble Lord’s Amendment 31. The Government are keen to ensure that sporting events are made available to the public as widely as possible. That is why we have the listed events regime. We...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I rise briefly to address the government amendments which I have tabled in this group: Amendments 19 to 24, 27 and 28, and 36 to 41. These, although numerous, are all minor technical amendments to provide Ofcom with the necessary tools to ensure that the regime delivers for audiences. The amendments will close off any opportunity for non-public service broadcaster services to...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I hear often talk about how we need an assembly of the nations and regions, but, as the noble Lord, Lord Bassam, has said, we have had a great display of that today from your Lordships’ Committee, with contributions from across the United Kingdom. As I set out on our first day in Committee, His Majesty’s Government are committed to stimulating growth in our world-leading...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I hope the meeting I have just indicated I am very happy to hold will be an opportunity to do that, with representatives of both the Government and Ofcom present, and an opportunity for noble Lords to ask questions on the issues of quotas, and not just in relation to the Bill that is before us. As the noble Lord says, Select Committees on an ongoing basis allow for the scrutiny of Ofcom’s...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Perhaps if the noble Lord has some examples, he might like to bring them to the discussion with Ofcom that I mentioned. It would be helpful for the regulator to hear, as well as for us in government as policymakers to understand and see, whether it is on the enforcement and assessment side or the policy-making side that we need to consider this further. I hope he will be able to join us for that.

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: To qualify as a regional production, at least two of the following three criteria must be met: a production company must have a substantive business and production base in the UK outside the M25; at least 70% of the production budget, excluding some specific costs, must be spent in the UK outside the M25; or at least 50% of the production talent, by cost, must have their usual place of...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 16 (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Yes, either I or, I am sure, my colleague in another place who has direct responsibility for this, not just in relation to the Bill but more broadly, will be happy to speak to them further.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Television Licences: Fees and Charges (17 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: His Majesty’s Government believes that there are challenges regarding the sustainability of the current licence fee funding model, and is therefore conducting a review of it. As the terms of reference for that review note, the broadcasting sector is evolving rapidly, and members of the public have much more choice about how, when, and where they access content. The review will look at the...

Community Sports: Impact on Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Wood of Anfield, for securing this excellent debate and the brilliant way in which he kicked it off. I congratulate and welcome the two noble Lords who made their maiden speeches; we were delighted to hear from them both. The noble Lord, Lord Hannett of Everton, already has the measure of the less partisan debates that we have in your Lordships’ House,...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling White Paper Update (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I am repeating the following Written Ministerial Statement made today in the other place by my Right Honourable Friend, the Minister for Sport, Gambling and Civil Society, Stuart Andrew MP: I wish to inform the House that His Majesty’s Government will today publish its response to the consultation on measures relating to the land-based gambling sector. This will introduce a range of...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: BBC: Finance (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The BBC Funding Model Review is a government-led review, supported by an expert panel which incorporates a broad range of views from across the sector, providing advice and external challenge on the issues set out in the review’s Terms of Reference, which are available on gov.uk. The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport appointed panel members based on their expertise across...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Royal Albert Hall (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: As the governmental sponsor of the Charity Commission, Ministers and officials from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport regularly meet the Charity Commission to discuss a range of matters, including the Royal Albert Hall.
