Canlyniadau 21–40 o 69 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Londesborough

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Tach 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I will focus on the economy, in light of the Prime Minister’s rather baffling introduction to the King's Speech where he states that “Our vibrant economy”, which has “turned the corner”, makes investors “excited about what the UK has to offer”. As an entrepreneur and investor in SMEs—I declare my interests as set out in the register—I must beg to differ. Our...

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government what is their estimate of the number of people who suffer from migraines; and what assessment they have made of the consequential impact on the workforce.

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, and declare an interest as a migraineur.

Health: Migraines - Question (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Londesborough: I am very grateful to the Minister for his response to a Question that was last asked in this House in 1961. Fast forward 60 years, and the NHS devotes less than £200 million a year to treating a condition that, as the Minister says, affects 10 million people in the UK—many undiagnosed—and which costs us, according to my figures, backed up by the Migraine Trust, some £10 billion per...

New Homes - Question (12 Med 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, when house prices fall, as they are doing now, big building firms tend to sit on their balance sheets and play the waiting game. That is very bad news for new homes as big builders now have a 90% share of the UK market while SMEs have seen their share collapse from 40% to less than 10%. Does the Minister agree that this market domination is stifling competition and is bad news for...

Advanced Artificial Intelligence - Motion to Take Note (24 Gor 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, first, I salute my noble friend Lord Ravensdale for securing this much-overdue debate. AI is a huge and challenging subject, so my focus today will be limited to its potential economic impact. I refer to my interests as set out in the register as an adviser and investor in start-ups and early-stage ventures. I must confess that, like the noble Viscount, Lord Colville, I was briefly...

Bank of England: Interest Rate Policy - Private Notice Question (12 Gor 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, on the subject of talking too much, as the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, has just raised, how helpful was it when the Prime Minister at the beginning of this year set a personal pledge to halve inflation from 10% to 5% when the Bank of England was forecasting 3.9% and holding a target of 2%? What does that do for the credibility and independence of the central bank?

Small and Medium-sized Housebuilders - Question (12 Gor 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, the steep decline in SME builders is deeply disturbing. Their market share has dropped from 40% to 10% in the past 35 years. How does increasing the market dominance of a small number of big players square with the Government’s often-mentioned mission to drive economic growth through innovation and competition?

UK Economy: Growth, Inflation and Productivity - Motion to Take Note (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Eatwell, for bringing such a timely debate to this House. It is timely because the twin evils of stagflation—rising prices and low growth—sharpen the need for higher productivity while presenting formidable challenges. Many businesses in the UK are currently financing wage inflation of 7% to 8% but seeing no growth in output or sales. When that...

Health: Economic Inactivity - Question (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the extent to which poor health is contributing to a rise in economic inactivity.

Health: Economic Inactivity - Question (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Londesborough: I thank the Minister for his response, but our nation’s deteriorating health requires urgent, in-depth analysis. The increase of 500,000 people on long-term sick leave is estimated to hit our economic output and productivity by between £30 billion and £50 billion per annum. Add that to our annual benefits for inactive working age people, which has grown by £35 billion in the last three...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Development Aid (12 Ebr 2023)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the remarks by Viscount Younger of Leckie on 15 December 2022 (HL Deb cols 807–11), what level the next funding round of UK Aid Match will be set at; and what proportion of Overseas Aid this will represent.

Online Safety Bill - Second Reading ( 1 Chw 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, as a former journalist and online publisher, I welcome this Bill. It is imperfect, of course, but it is much needed, as can be seen by the deeply disturbing data around online media and its impact on the young and vulnerable. I believe that the free-for-all nature of the digital age requires us to build far more rigorous layers of protection and regulation than ever before. I say...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Second Reading (17 Ion 2023)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, your Lordships will be relieved to hear that, as speaker 65, I will sidestep the big issues of housing, planning and devolution —essentially what the Bill is about—and focus instead on the economics and funding of levelling up, on which the Bill has curiously little to say. While most of us here support the concepts of levelling up and regeneration, the scope and ambition of the...

Bilateral Free Trade Agreements - Question (20 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: To ask His Majesty’s Government how many bilateral free trade agreements they expect to sign in the next 24 months.

Bilateral Free Trade Agreements - Question (20 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: I thank the Minister for that, but the truth is that we are well behind the target set in 2019 for free trade deals. Some of these FTAs are now described by the Government themselves as “not very good”. The trade and co-operation agreement with the EU is a case in point. HMRC reports that the number of exporters to Europe fell by 33% last year, with 9,000 out of 27,000 British businesses...

Official Development Assistance - Motion to Take Note (15 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, for securing this timely and critical debate. I am sorry that she is not able to be with us today, and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bruce, for leading it instead. The debate is timely because, as we all know, there is huge demand and need for aid and assistance overseas following the pandemic, war in Ukraine, Afghanistan and multiple other...
