Canlyniadau 41–60 o 69 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Londesborough

Tax-free Shopping - Question (15 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, the arguments for tax-free shopping range from a £2 billion cost to the Treasury to a £4 billion benefit to the wider economy; I cite the recent survey from Oxford Economics. Whatever the truth, given the dire need for economic growth, surely it falls on the Treasury to at least review these important numbers.

Football: Abuse and Violence - Question (12 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I understand that body cameras worn by referees are being trialled by some leagues in adult grass-roots fixtures. It sounds like a sensible initiative. Can the Minister update us on it?

Arts and Creative Industries Strategy - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Rha 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I too thank the noble Viscount for securing this debate at such a critical time for the arts and creative industries in the UK, as we head into a recession, perhaps followed by years of low growth. As we know, Governments often suffer what I call a macrotemptation to cut support for the arts and creative sectors when money is tight, as it undoubtedly is, in the mistaken belief that...

UEFA Euro 2020 Final - Question (30 Tach 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, one of the conclusions of the independent review was the over-reliance on inexperienced and poorly paid stewards. What is the Government’s response to this now that the UK and Ireland are pitching for the Euro 2028 tournament, which requires safety and security for 10 stadiums across five countries?

Autumn Statement 2022 - Motion to Take Note (29 Tach 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, it was only seven weeks ago that I and many other noble Lords here today spoke out against the so-called mini-Budget during the debate on the economy in this place. Well, much has changed since then, but it has left the new Government with little room for manoeuvre and an understandable fear of markets taking fright at any further signs of fiscal lunacy. Therefore, I will give...

Gulf States: Human Rights Abuses - Motion to Take Note (24 Tach 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I also would like to thank the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, for bringing this timely debate to the House. When I say timely, I refer to the World Cup currently being staged in Qatar, which though highly controversial, has at least brought the world’s wider attention to systematic human rights abuses not just in Qatar but across the Gulf. Sadly, the World Cup has demonstrated that,...

Freedom of Expression (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (27 Hyd 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, I also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Gilbert, and members of the committee on producing such a thorough and thought-provoking report. I refer to my interests as set out in the register and declare that I spent some 20 years building a digital information company where freedom of expression—in our case, views and analysis on Governments around the world—was our lifeblood....

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Hyd 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, first, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Gohir on her passionate and eloquent maiden speech. We look forward to hearing much more from her from the Cross Benches. As we have heard, the Prime Minister’s economic strategy is, “Growth, growth, growth”. This has unfortunate echoes of her predecessor who, just five months ago, trumpeted the slogan, “Jobs, jobs, jobs”, at a...

Economic Downturn - Question (18 Gor 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, does the Minister agree that real economic growth will prove almost impossible in the long term while our workforce remains more than 1 million short? Given the current leadership debate, how long will we have to wait until the Government take action to address this growing labour crisis?

Shortage of Workers - Question ( 6 Gor 2022)

Lord Londesborough: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to address the shortage of workers in the United Kingdom.

Shortage of Workers - Question ( 6 Gor 2022)

Lord Londesborough: I thank the Minister for her detailed response, but the UK is suffering an employment crisis. Our workforce has shrunk by at least 500,000, with some estimates saying nearer 1 million —the biggest percentage drop of any G7 economy—and as the Minister says, we now have more than 1.3 million unfilled vacancies. Labour shortages do not just cause economic disruption; they fuel wage inflation...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (16 Mai 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, the spectre of stagflation is a stark reminder of the need to generate real economic growth, especially in challenging times. This, of course, is the only way to finance government spending in the long term so, as I listened to the Queen’s Speech last week, I was looking out for a coherent economic strategy to underpin the very first line of the Address— “Her Majesty’s...

Covid-19: Global Vaccine Inequity - Question (27 Ebr 2022)

Lord Londesborough: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to increase the United Kingdom’s role and contributions to address COVID-19 vaccine inequity across the world.

Covid-19: Global Vaccine Inequity - Question (27 Ebr 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, we are now just two months away from the WHO target of vaccinating 70% of the world, yet across Africa just 17% have had their first jab. The pandemic is not over—far from it. Some 700,000 Covid deaths have been recorded across the world in the last three months, and the vast majority of those were unvaccinated people. Can the Minister say when Britain will follow Germany’s...

Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Bill - Second Reading ( 9 Maw 2022)

Lord Londesborough: My Lords, as we know, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has triggered the fast-tracking of this Bill to address the burgeoning and multifaceted industry of economic crime. If this Bill is viewed as a quick fix to address the UK’s shameful and enabling embrace of corrupt oligarchs, we should note that the so-called London laundromat has also been exploited by kleptocrats across a wide range of...

Covid-19: Vaccination Programme - Question (22 Chw 2022)

Lord Londesborough: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what financial support they will provide to the global Covid-19 vaccination programme in 2022; and how many vaccine doses the United Kingdom has donated to date.

Covid-19: Vaccination Programme - Question (22 Chw 2022)

Lord Londesborough: I thank the Minister for his detailed response, but we are way behind the WHO’s target of vaccinating 70% of the world by September. Just 6% of people across low-income countries are fully vaccinated, while 3 billion people have not received a single dose. Last month, the Prime Minister was warned by 300 leading scientists that wealthy countries were pursuing “a reckless approach to...
