Yesterday I was grateful for the opportunity to put a question to the Leader of the House of Commons, at the weekly Business Questions.
I highlighted a recent case in my constituency where two children had eaten a bag of drug-laced sweets, inadvertently mistaking them for normal ones. I asked the Leader to schedule a debate on the issue of these drugs being packaged misleadingly and to look attractive to children.
I then listened to the new Paymaster General’s statement on ‘Brexit opportunities. He covered the Government’s plans for the replacement of EU regulations in a wide range of policy areas, including data protection, genetically modified organisms (GMO) and transport technology, to name just a few. I pressed the Minister on the Government’s proposed removal of Article 22 in data protection legislation, which gives people the right to request a human review of decisions made by artificial intelligence algorithms.
