Lord Blencathra: My Lords, this has been a short but interesting debate. I will come to the Minister’s response at the end of my remarks but I am slightly disappointed. I am grateful to noble friends and noble Baronesses on all sides of the House for their support. My noble friend Lady Thomas of Winchester confirmed that progress has ground to a halt after the initial flurry after the 2010 Act. I agree...

House of Lords (Expulsion and Suspension) Bill [HL]: Committee (21 November 2014)

Lord Brabazon of Tara: I very much support the amendment, and apologise that I was unable to be in the House for Second Reading, but I also support the Bill. As some of your Lordships may recall, I was chairman of the Privileges Committee during the saga of the first suspensions to take place in the modern era. They were not as simple as all that, because a number of people thought that we should not have been able...

Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill [HL]: Committee (21 November 2014) See 8 other results from this debate

Baroness Deech: My Lords, I am sure that the Minister will agree that the best should not be the enemy of what is workable and good going forward. I am also sure that the Minister and I are united in the deep concern I have about the unfortunate couples who are wasting their money as they go through the process at the moment. I am willing to try almost anything because this has been a concern of mine for the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Pre-school Education: Admissions (21 November 2014)

Sam Gyimah: I have asked Ofsted to respond using the data they hold on registered nursery places. Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, will write to the hon.

Carbon Capture and Storage (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Tom Greatrex: .... I think that I recall discussing that very issue with my hon. Friend when the decision was made. It was an absurdity to have the top-rated project in Europe and not to achieve the NER 300 support because of the inability of the UK Government to find match funding when they had been saying that 1 billion was available at that point within that comprehensive spending review period....

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: My Lords, I am very pleased to wind up for the Government in this debate. In starting, I have to say that I find myself in agreement—it must be rare when the two Front-Bench spokespeople agree—especially with the first part of the speech of the noble Baroness about having three distinct experts in the House of Lords and the rest of us being digital tourists. I found myself in much...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (20 November 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Peter Lilley: Yes. I normally call myself a lukewarmist. I believe that the climate will warm a bit, which will probably be quite beneficial to parts of our country, although it could pose problems elsewhere. I do not deny that double the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere will increase the temperature by 1 and a bit, plus or minus any effect due to positive or negative feedbacks. However, I do not...

Backbench Business: Money Creation and Society (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Mark Durkan: I rise to endorse the very significant points made by hon. Members. In particular, I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Wycombe (Steve Baker) for securing the debate and for opening it so strongly. From hearing him speak in Public Bill Committees on banking reform and related questions, I know that he is dubious about our having almost feng shui arguments on the regulatory furniture when...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Family Law (20 November 2014)

Simon Hughes: Parties with no legal representation are not a new phenomenon in our courts. We have taken steps to help people who either want or have to represent themselves in court. The new package of support announced on 23 October is aimed at keeping disputes away from court, while those who end up in court will be provided with better support. The Ministry of Justice has responsibility for courts in...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Cold Weather Payments: Scotland (20 November 2014)

Steve Webb: The Cold Weather Payment scheme is administered at weather station level rather than any other standard GB geography such as postcode level. The coverage area for each weather station is determined by the Met Office which assesses the most appropriate weather station for each postcode area, which may change between years. Cold weather payments are triggered when the average temperature has...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Council Housing (20 November 2014)
