Universities: Freedom of Speech — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: My Lords, I am privileged to welcome the noble Lord, Lord Trevethin and Oaksey, to this House and, indeed, to these Cross Benches, and congratulate him on a most delightful and insightful maiden speech. I would have expected nothing less of so conspicuously successful and a well-respected practising Silk, whose advocacy at the Bar I have enjoyed, admired and, indeed, benefited from...

International Trade — Motion to Take Note (23 Jan 2014)

Lord Giddens: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Harrison on having initiated this important debate. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Marland, and to see him back here, in such ebullient form as always, even if he is going to desert us half way through the proceedings. I have been a practising social scientist for several decades. Over that time, a principle of working has always...

Public Bill Committee: Water Bill: Examination of Witnesses (3 Dec 2013)

Pete Fox: It is a date set by DEFRA. My understanding is that it is very soon.

Public Bill Committee: Defence Reform Bill: Clause 1 - Arrangements for providing defence procurement services (8 Oct 2013)

Kevan Jones: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. The Minister’s remarks show that there are still many questions to be answered in relation to the GoCo. I have spoken to people in industry and in the military, and we are concerned that this enabling legislation is being put forward without the exact detail being worked out. Many of us are concerned about that. We need to...

Scottish Parliament: Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (25 Apr 2013)

Neil Findlay: I welcome the debate for a variety of reasons. Land and buildings transaction tax generally appears to be a good thing—it moves us in the right direction. As members have said, it should be more responsive to the Scottish housing market. I am pleased to see that the system will be much more progressive than the stamp duty system that it replaces. It should always be that those with more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Ministerial Code (Culture Secretary) (30 Apr 2012)

David Cameron: My hon. Friend is right. I do not want in any way to belittle what the Cabinet Secretary, a former civil servant or Sir Alex Allan are capable of in terms of proper inquiries, because this has happened in the past; it happened with my right hon. Friend the Member for North Somerset (Dr Fox). It so happens that the process that we are currently engaged in—the Leveson inquiry—is...

Written Answers — Scotland: Clyde Naval Base (2 Dec 2010)

David Mundell: ...for Scotland, my right hon. Friend the Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (Michael Moore) has had with the Secretary of State for Defence, the right hon. Member for North Somerset (Dr Fox) it has been clear that it is still too early to judge the effects on specific locations of the planned reductions in the number of service and civilian personnel. He will discuss these...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Wildlife and Natural Environment Bill: Consideration Stage (22 Jun 2010)

Roy Beggs: ...similar fate with her small collection of three hens. They were killed by a roaming fox, as were her replacement ones. It must be understood that there are two sides to the issue. It is not just the fox; it is the animals that the fox will kill. There are other issues that ought to be of concern to the urban community, in case it thinks that this is a purely rural situation. I expect that,...

Defence in the World (15 Mar 2010)

Denis MacShane: I enjoyed the speech by the shadow Defence Secretary, the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox). It was wide-ranging, and included a lot of material that I have read in documents from the Royal United Services Institute and others. I did not quite understand his little rant at the end-this is not a Second Reading debate, and there are not many Members in the Chamber, although most of us are...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (13 Mar 2008)

David Gauke: It is a great pleasure to speak on the second day of the Budget debate. It is has been an interesting debate, although, unfortunately, it has perhaps not been as highly attended as it might have been, particularly by Labour Members. I do not know whether they found yesterday's Budget speech less than inspiring. In recent years, one or two Budgets have been very well received at the time and...

Points of Order: Armed Forces Personnel (21 Jun 2007)

Don Touhig: This debate on armed forces personnel comes just after we have marked the 25th anniversary of the end of the Falklands war. I join colleagues in all parts of the House in paying tribute to the courage of our forces who liberated the Falklands and those who continue to serve our country in Iraq and Afghanistan. The commemoration of the Falklands conflict puts into focus the way in which we in...

Bill Presented: Armed Forces Personnel (6 Jul 2006)

John Robertson: First, I would like to associate myself with the condolences expressed to the families and friends of the young solider who was killed yesterday, and to those of all our servicemen and women who have died over the decades to keep this country in freedom, to preserve free speech and to help us to have the standard of living that we have today. They have more than fulfilled their need to defend...

Orders of the Day: New Clause 19 — Power to remove or reduce burdens (15 May 2006)

Greg Knight: Has not the hon. Gentleman just shot his own fox? It is because the Minister made it clear that he was willing to listen to arguments that many of us did not vote against Second Reading.

Fox Hunting: Alternatives (20 Apr 2006)

Lord Livsey of Talgarth: My Lords, I deeply respect the sincerity of the noble Lord, Lord Graham, who has just spoken, but I should point out to him that in fact the ban on fox hunting was rejected in this House. The Hunting Act 2004 has failed as an animal welfare measure; indeed, it is having a negative impact on animal welfare and the proper management of wild mammals. There is no doubt that a lot more foxes have...

Orders of the Day — Armed Forces Bill (12 Dec 2005)

Linda Gilroy: I welcome this Bill for the reasons that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence set out. It is evolutionary, not revolutionary, despite some of the earlier comments of the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox). It enhances at least to a modest degree the provisions for independence, although not to anything like a sufficient degree, a point to which I want to refer later. In...

Hunting Bill (28 Oct 2004)

Lord Mancroft: That is most helpful. However, in answer to his point, if two dogs were used on a big shoot all day, they would be two very, very tired dogs. You need to use a number of dogs to cover the ground. There is a limit to the amount of ground two poor dogs by themselves can cover. Whether there are two, three, four or five dogs, the cruelty issue does not arise; it is a complete irrelevance. One of...

Hunting Bill (26 Oct 2004)

Viscount Ullswater: I support the amendments. Perhaps I should start by declaring an interest in that my wife is a member of two whippet coursing clubs. I admit that coursing is a recreational sport, but it plays an important part in hare conservation. The noble Baroness, Lady Gibson, talked about shooting, which is also a recreational sport. So we are comparing like with like. The Game Conservancy Trust...

Employment Relations Bill (8 Jul 2004)

Lord Lea of Crondall: My Lords, perhaps it was not a fox; it may have been a red herring.

Meat Fraud (10 Dec 2003)

Miss Melanie Johnson: I begin by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Amber Valley (Judy Mallaber) on her choice of subject for this Adjournment debate. Meat fraud is a serious issue, and I can reassure her that all those involved with it in government take it seriously. I am very happy to join her in congratulating those who brought the criminals to book. My hon. Friend mentioned the exercise in...

Hunting Bill (28 Oct 2003)

Lord Eden of Winton: ...the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, in the Bill. He expressly indicated that shooting a fox because it is too big to retrieve with a dog would not be exempt under Schedule 1. So what happens to the wounded fox? It suffers. It suffers a cruel death as a result of the wounding. The vets to whom I referred said that that, "represents an unacceptable degree of animal suffering, particularly if, as...
