TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Yes. I commend the work that the BBC has done: it commissioned a gender disparity review, with which I believe the noble Baroness, Lady Young of Hornsey, from your Lordships’ House, helped assist. We welcome the 10-point plan that the BBC has set out, flowing from that review, but we will look more broadly at the issue of criminal sanctions as part of future funding.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: No. We want to look carefully at the issue of how we make sure that the BBC continues to get the funding that it needs to produce the wonderful programming that is much admired. But, in light of the trend that I have outlined, in which fewer people are buying a licence fee in the first place, of course we will make sure that we speak to the corporation as part of that review—but we are...

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Government are committed to making sure that everybody—men and women—can reach their full potential and play their full part in our society and economy. We bring forward policies to try to make sure that everybody can do that. In this instance, I am glad that the BBC has looked at the gender disparity, recognising the impact of licence fee sanctions on women—and the Government have...

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Lord is right: women make up around 75% of people prosecuted for TV licence evasion. As the overall number of prosecutions has fallen, the number of women and vulnerable people affected has also fallen. But, as my right honourable friend the Secretary of State outlined, we are very concerned about the appropriateness of a criminal sanction in these matters, and we will look at this...

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Yes, the BBC does very important work through the Local Democracy Reporting Service. Local radio stations provide hugely important information and news to their local communities, as I set out in our Second Reading debate on the Media Bill, where I know we will talk about these important matters further.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Ofcom, not the Government, regulates the provision of news, whatever channel people receive it on. The BBC receives some £3.8 billion in licence fee income; that income allows it to provide its important and impartial news, both at home and around the world.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Simple Payment Plan does help people pay the television licence fee at present. As I say, we are looking at all the ways in which the BBC might receive its funding in the future, taking into account the declining number of people paying for a licence, but looking at all options to make sure that it has the revenue it needs to continue doing the work for which it is much admired.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Government consulted on decriminalisation of TV licence evasion in 2020, and we published our response in 2021. The appropriate time to make this decision is as part of the BBC funding model review, when we can look at the way we can get the sustainable funding for the corporation that everyone wants to see.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I hope I can reassure the noble Baroness that the number of women being prosecuted is falling. In the year ending June 2022, 35,000 women were prosecuted; in the year ending June 2023, 29,000 were. So the number is coming down, but the disparity between the sexes is indeed stark, with women still making up around three-quarters of people prosecuted. That is why we are glad the BBC has looked...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Casement Park: Regeneration ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The Department for Communities in Northern Ireland is responsible for the procurement process for the redevelopment of Casement Park. Funding decisions are therefore for the Northern Ireland Executive to consider. His Majesty’s Government is working closely with partners in Northern Ireland to make sure that EURO 2028 leaves a lasting legacy across the whole United Kingdom.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Public Statues: Trafalgar Square ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: HM Government has had no discussions with the Mayor of London concerning proposals for a statue for the spare plinth in Trafalgar Square.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Public Libraries: Finance ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Local authorities in England have a statutory duty to provide a comprehensive and efficient library service which meets local needs. It is for each local authority to consider how best to deliver this. His Majesty’s Government has provided an additional £600 million on top of the £64 billion Local Government Finance Settlement for 2024-25 — an increase of 7.5% in cash terms. This uplift...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling: Video Games ( 1 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: His Majesty’s Government and the Gambling Commission continue to pay close attention to novel and emergent forms of gambling and gambling-like products, including within video games, to ensure that appropriate regulation is in place. HM Government has welcomed new, industry-led guidance which aims to address concerns about the use of loot boxes in video games. Measures to protect players...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Press Recognition Panel ( 1 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: HM Government has no plans to take forward the three main recommendations made in the Press Recognition Panel’s eighth annual report on the recognition system. The Government committed in its manifesto to the repeal of Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013, which we will do through the Media Bill, and has consistently supported the independent self-regulation of the press.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Video Games ( 1 Maw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: Platforms including Steam allow users to trade games from one personal computer to another over a local area network. Default settings on Steam are for transfers only to be enabled in and out of personal computers where a user’s own account is logged in. In order to be in receipt of a game file transfer, users must opt in to share with other users. As a trader operating an online platform...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Variation Notice ( 1 Maw 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 Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Lucy Frazer KC MP: This is a joint statement with the Secretary of State for the Home Department. As Ministers with joint responsibility for the Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practices, and ethics of the press, today...

Charities: National Minimum Wage - Question (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, charities are vital to the delivery of social care services and to the support of families and carers across the country. His Majesty’s Government have made available an additional £8.6 billion in this financial year and next to support local authorities on adult social care and discharge. In addition, DCMS has awarded £76 million to charities and community organisations...

Charities: National Minimum Wage - Question (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: The noble Lord rightly points to the 9.8% increase to the national living wage, a record cash increase of £1.02 an hour from 1 April, which will give a pay rise to around 3 million workers. He is also right to talk about the implications for organisations such as charities. As I mentioned in my first Answer, the Government have made available up to £8.6 billion to support local authorities...

Charities: National Minimum Wage - Question (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: I will pass on my noble friend’s representations; he is right. The impact assessment for the increase in the national living wage shows that the cost to charities and voluntary organisations is around £200 million over the next six years. That is the evidence we have, which we will share with relevant partners to make sure that they can carry on their work. As I have pointed to, DCMS...
