Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 68 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: The view of the Government in this legislation is that the banned commercial practice is banned already, as set out in Schedule 19, and that a strict civil enforcement regime is already in place, strengthened by Part 3. It is down to enforcers to tackle these misleading replica goods; our view is that it is up to the enforcement regimes to enforce under the current law.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 68 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: As some clarification is required, I am happy to write further on the matter. Amendments 70, 71 and 93 to 98 are technical government amendments. The Bill empowers the courts to impose monetary penalties for a breach of consumer law and procedures. To accommodate the different processes by which court orders are served or enforced in Scotland and Northern Ireland, the amendments provide that...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 68 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: We are clear that the CMA provides general guidance and advice, but it is the responsibility of businesses to comply with the law. If the CMA is transformed into a bespoke legal advice service, it will not be doing the work it is meant to do, which is focusing on enforcement. Therefore, we believe the balance is right in the mechanism put forward. Turning to trading standards and Amendments...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64 (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for Amendment 64. It would expand the list of media merger public interest considerations to include: “The need for free expression of opinion and plurality of ownership of media enterprises in user-to-user and search services”. I previously addressed this issue in Committee, when I referred to the Government’s ongoing consideration of...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Central Asia and Russia: Defence Equipment (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: HMG has sanctioned every item that Ukraine has found Russia using on the battlefield to date. This includes goods that could be used for drones and heavy machinery. We maintain a Common High Priority List (CHPL) of items critical to the Russian military, to thwart attempts to circumvent sanctions through third countries. We continue to engage with relevant countries and monitor our exports...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Royal Mail: Standards (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: As the independent regulator for the postal sector, it is for Ofcom to monitor Royal Mail’s delivery of the universal service obligation and decide how to respond should Royal Mail fail to meet its obligations. Ofcom fined the business £5.6m for failing to meet its service delivery targets in 2022-23 and is closely monitoring Royal Mail’s performance to ensure service issues are...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Piracy: Red Sea (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: The Department of Business and Trade is closely monitoring the Red Sea situation and we are proactively engaging with key businesses to identify trade issues, offer support on the crisis and updating businesses on the latest supply chain information. More broadly, our membership in Operation Prosperity Guardian demonstrates the Government's commitment to ensuring the Red Sea is safe for...

National Minimum Wage (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2024 – Lord Offord of Garvel. Orders and regulations

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Northern Ireland (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: Justice is a devolved matter in Scotland and Northern Ireland. After engagement with interested parties and careful consideration, the Government believe that the approach for overturning the convictions in Scotland and Northern Ireland should be determined by the Scottish Government and Northern Ireland Executive. The Government will continue to work with the Devolved Administrations to...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Royal Mail: Standards (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: It is for Ofcom, as the independent regulator of postal services, to set and monitor Royal Mail's service standards and decide how to use its powers to investigate and take enforcement action should Royal Mail fail to achieve its obligations without good justification. In its investigation into quality of service performance for 2022-23, Ofcom found Royal Mail had contravened its service...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank all noble Lords who have contributed to the final group this evening, group 4. Amendment 61 tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, would enable the Competition Appeal Tribunal to award exemplary damages in collective proceedings. He is familiar with the Government’s position on this matter. I have been pleased to have the opportunity to discuss it with him further since...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: Yes, this will be happening quickly.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thought the noble Lord would appreciate that clarity. Amendment 63 was tabled by my noble friend Lord Hodgson and I thank him and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas, for their contributions to the debate. While the Government recognise the important role that litigation funding can play in facilitating access to justice, we are not blind to some of the challenges and opportunities to...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: That is correct. Colleagues from the Ministry of Justice will be following this debate closely and will have heard the points made by my noble friend Lord Hodgson regarding the need for momentum for this review. Therefore, it would not be right to have a statutory review that would duplicate this work. Amendment 65, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Tyrie, is about whistleblowing. I thank the...

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 61 (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: I thank both noble Lords for that. The update will be provided shortly. I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, on the beauty of the wording that the “research” for the review is near completion. It does perhaps need some clarification, so let us get the timetable and I will provide that as soon as possible. The noble Lord’s continued engagement is greatly welcomed as we...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: This is a matter for the statutory Post Office Horizon IT Inquiry, chaired by Sir Wyn Williams, to look into. It would be wrong for the Government to prejudice its work.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Compensation (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: Tragically, a total of seven wrongfully prosecuted postmasters within the current ‘Overturned Convictions’ cohort have died. Six of these were postmasters whose convictions have been overturned, and one was prosecuted but not convicted. Two of the seven postmasters died after their convictions were overturned. Of these seven claims, four have reached full and final settlement.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System (11 Maw 2024)

Lord Offord of Garvel: The Department does not have a copy of the Project Zebra review. Like other aspects of the Horizon scandal, this is a matter for the statutory Post Office Horizon IT Inquiry, chaired by Sir Wyn Williams, to look into
