Lord Balfe


Recent appearances

  • EU: Turkish Membership - Question 25 May 2016

    My Lords, I point out that successive Governments of all political colours have supported Turkey’s application. Part of the accession negotiations could obviously cover a derogation on free movement that could put it off for a number of years. I will be in Ankara next week, at the Turkish Parliament. Can I assure them that Her Majesty’s Government’s position remains the same?
  • Trade Union Bill - Third Reading 25 Apr 2016

    My Lords, I very much welcome this clause. It represents common sense and shows that the Minister has listened to the representations that have been received. I do not intend to speak again during this debate but I will pick up on a point made earlier by the noble Lord, Lord Collins, who mentioned twice that he had been to an USDAW conference. I am sure that he had a very good welcome there....
