Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Nick Clegg: I speak as someone who, as the Home Secretary knows, had a hand in the commissioning of this excellent report. The right hon. Lady will remember with fond, misty-eyed nostalgia the debates that she and I had on this complex, fraught and all-important area of public policy. One of the consequences of those debates and disagreements was that a number of reports were commissioned, including...

Constitution: Gracious Speech — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2015)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: ...the wrong direction. We should be defending the need for an effective representative democracy and not making cheap jibes in order to curry favour. Nobody has mentioned the House of Lords reform that Nick Clegg introduced. That sank very quickly so perhaps it is best not to do dwell on it. But we saw other changes, such as voter registration. My noble friend produced figures that show that...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Tibet (18 June 2015)

Fabian Hamilton: ...on the solidarity offered by Nelson Mandela himself when the Dalai Lama visited Cape Town years ago is truly a tragedy. China has tried such tactics on many Governments, our own included. In May 2012, David Cameron and Nick Clegg privately met the Dalai Lama in London, outside St Paul’s cathedral, where the Dalai Lama was being awarded the Templeton prize for his contribution to...

European Union Referendum Bill: Clause 2 — Entitlement to Vote in the Referendum (18 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Anne Main: ...another regard. I have that poster on my wall that says, “We are the only party that will give a true referendum”. I think we were playing games with the Lisbon treaty at the time. A poster of Nick Clegg, the former leader of the Liberal Democrats, is on the wall in my office, and has been there for some time, as are pictures of those who want to give us a true referendum.

Anderson Report — Statement (11 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Paddick: ...member for Sheffield Hallam when he was Deputy Prime Minister took a lot of flak for blocking legislation that required the retention of third-party data. Would the Minister not agree that David Anderson, in his report, agrees with Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrat position on what some have called the “snoopers’ charter”, even if he cannot bring himself to say that he...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (6th Day) (4 June 2015)

Baroness Kramer: ...issues but obviously I am delighted, after my time as a Transport Minister, that HS2 progresses, as does the devolution of transport powers to cities. The policy owes a great deal to the noble Lord, Lord Heseltine, but perhaps I may also mention that it owes a great deal to Nick Clegg personally—as does the whole process of devolution. We on these Benches will be constructive, as is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Tributes to Charles Kennedy (3 June 2015)

Nick Clegg: A few days ago I got in touch with Charles because I was looking for a telephone number of someone we both knew. His friends will not be surprised to learn that we were texting each other. He was notoriously bad at actually answering his phone, but famously fluent in SMS. He said he did not have the number on him but he would get back to me this week, because he was spending time with his...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (2 June 2015)

Baroness Miller of Chilthorne Domer: ...given was Heinz Farley’s Rusks, which contain 29g of sugar per 100g. Those are for babies and nearly a third is sugar. However, the answers are within our reach. One of the best moments for me of the coalition Government was when Nick Clegg, then Deputy Prime Minister, announced that the long-held Liberal Democrat policy of starting children off with a good nutritional input would...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Nick Clegg: I add my warmest congratulations to the right hon. Member for Chelmsford (Mr Burns) and the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) on their excellent speeches as proposer and seconder of the Queen’s Speech. Their speeches were by turn witty, warm hearted and, certainly in the case of the right hon. Gentleman, quite surprising in places. I add my tribute and that of my party...

Message to Attend the Lords Commissioners: Members Sworn (19 May 2015)

John Bercow: ...honourable Andrew David Smith, Oxford East Right honourable Alan Campbell, Tynemouth Right honourable Alexander Morrison Carmichael, Orkney and Shetland Right honourable Nicholas William Peter Clegg, Sheffield, and Hallam Right honourable Ed Miliband, Doncaster North Brandon Kenneth Lewis, Great Yarmouth Right honourable Frank Field, Birkenhead David Julian Winnick, Walsall North Ronald...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (25 March 2015)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...scheme was announced in 2012 and announced again in last year’s Budget, with 200 million of funds but only 100 million allocated in the Autumn Statement. The Northstowe development is already in the planning system. Nick Clegg promised 225,000 in funding for large-scale housing schemes in late 2012. That appears again in the Red Book this time. It is estimated that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 March 2015)

David Cameron: That is the point. Who knows who you could wake up in bed with? It might not just be Alex Salmond; it might be Nigel Farage. It could be any number of people. [Hon. Members: “It could be Nick Clegg.”] Yes, of course that is an option too. It all points to the difference between the competence of the Conservatives and the chaos of the alternatives.

Scotland Act 1998 (Modification of Schedules 4 and 5 and Transfer of Functions to the Scottish Ministers etc.) Order 2015 — Motion to Approve (26 February 2015)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...really a commitment that contradicted the terms. Scotland in the United Kingdom: An Enduring Settlement was published in January 2015 as Command Paper 8990. It has a foreword signed by the right honourable Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, and the right honourable David Cameron, the Prime Minister, which states that it is their response to the Smith commission proposals. On page 17,...

Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 January 2015)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...sides that the maintenance of that ancient Christian community in Palestine and Israel must be assisted. Jerusalem itself is a very important part of that. Jerusalem is a holy city for all three Abrahamic faiths. I say that with particular passion because, when I went on behalf of Nick Clegg to talk to the Board of Deputies during the previous election campaign, when I said that, one of...

Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 — Question (27 January 2015)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Is the Minister aware that my noble friend Lord Grocott has more parliamentary experience than Nick Clegg, David Cameron and Ed Miliband put together? He therefore deserves to be listened to carefully.

Broadcast General Election Debates (Communications Committee Report) — Motion to Take Note (21 January 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...mean that the debates could not proceed and still remain compliant with the broadcasters’ respective obligations. My party’s view is that if the broadcasters choose to invite major leaders such as Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Nigel Farage and David Cameron to a debate and one of them decides not to show up, they can decide to go ahead without that leader. They can empty-chair him....
