Lord Offord of Garvel: The UK’s manufacturing sector is showing resilience, despite challenges such as supply chain disruptions in the Red Sea. According to the OECD, since 2010 the UK has had the fastest manufacturing productivity growth in the G7. Make UK’s Q1 Manufacturing Outlook Report, published at the end of March, showed increased investment and recruitment intentions among manufacturers. The...

Lord Offord of Garvel: The government is continuing to pursue an ambitious policy agenda to increase sustainable economic growth and productivity across the economy.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion E1 (as an amendment to Motion E) (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have debated the topic of secondary ticketing today. It has been an interesting and constructive discussion on a very important topic. Turning to Motion E1, tabled by my noble friend Lord Moynihan and regarding secondary ticketing, I thank the noble Lords, Lord Clement-Jones and Lord Leong, for their contributions. I also thank my noble friend for his...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion E (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My Lords, I too thank noble Lords for their constructive engagement and debate during the passage of this Bill and echo the remarks of my noble friend Lord Camrose on the importance of this legislation. Since noble Lords last discussed secondary ticketing, the Government have given further thought to addressing the concerns raised in both Houses. We still do not see the merit in more or...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My Lords, this has been a thoughtful and considered debate, and I am grateful for the broad and insightful contributions from noble Lords across the House. I was particularly grateful for the opening contributions of the noble and learned Lords, Lord Falconer of Thoroton and Lord Burnett of Maldon, one speaking as a former Lord Chancellor and the other as a former Lord Chief Justice. They...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My understanding is that six were given no right to appeal because it was considered they did not have the evidence to do so; in effect, they are considered with the 13 whose convictions were not overturned. Therefore, they are included within the same category.

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My Lords, I will cross-check the record, but my understanding is that these 13 cases are recent and came to the Court of Appeal after the Hamilton judgment, so the courts were aware of the background in those cases. The noble Lords, Lord Arbuthnot of Edrom, Lord Sikka and Lord McNicol, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer of Thoroton, questioned why this legislation does not include...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I will need to write to the noble Lord on that point. As my colleague in the other place, Minister Hollinrake, said, we want to minimise any pause between the Bill coming into effect and redress payments being made. To be clear, the GLO compensation scheme is independent of the Post Office. As requested by postmasters in our consultation, it is run by the Department for Business and Trade....

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: My Lords, I am pleased to present the Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill for Second Reading today. Noble Lords will have followed the passage of this historic Bill through the other place and will be well aware of its significance and the cross-party support it has received. This legislation will address one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in our nation’s history. It will...

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: The Government recognise the value of the crafts sector, which contributed £400 million gross value added to the UK economy in 2022, as well as the importance of trade between the UK and the EU. We acknowledge that UK crafts exporters may face challenges regarding export requirements, visas and work permits. To help businesses navigate those challenges, including the visa and work permit...

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank the noble Baroness. I recognise her detailed involvement in this sector, which is part of the creative industries sector—one of the five identified by the Chancellor that will power our economy in the 21st century. It is a small part, run and characterised by microbusinesses, which no doubt have more difficult travel arrangements than they had before. The Government are working to...

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank the noble Earl. I am well aware that there is a large number of committees. In DBT we are trying our best to remove barriers to trade and perhaps reduce the number of committees. In this case, I will need to go and ask the question to find out which committee is looking after craftspeople.

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank the noble Lord for that question. We have a trade and co-operation agreement. In fact, our Brexit deal was one of the most progressive trade deals we had at the time of Brexit, which has been capitalised upon now, to 73 countries comprising 60% of global trade. Therefore, we have no tariffs and quotas for UK-EU goods trade. The Government’s aim is to maximise and make the best of...

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I refer the noble Lord to my colleague in the other place, Greg Hands MP, who is the Minister for Europe. He is spending an increasing amount of time in European capitals. We also have 300 embassy staff working in the EU on deal-by-deal arrangements with countries to help, for example, our musicians and crafts folk. It is working very well.

Craftspeople: European Union Travel and Trade - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank the noble Baroness for that. The craft sector is being supported. My own department, DBT, is delivering a programme of trade promotion activity in Europe and elsewhere. We also have a new means of trade, by way of digital, as well as by having to go there. Perhaps our carbon footprint has been reduced by making fewer trips to some of those shows. For example, we will be doing one in...
