Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — House of Lords: European Arrest Warrants 6 Jan 2015

    To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the European Arrest Warrant on the application of habeas corpus.
  • Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill: Third Reading 18 Mar 2014

    My Lords, other Members may remember a similar discussion in this House in the early 1990s when the Duke of Devonshire said in terms—I cannot remember exactly what he said—that in his view any well brought up young man should have a mistress, a yacht and a racehorse; and that, if he could not afford any one of them, he jolly well should not have them. I am inclined to agree with him.
  • Olympic Games: British Companies — Question 22 May 2012

    My Lords, if one of the benefits of the Olympic Games is to encourage people to get more involved in sport, why not keep the site open next year and have an industrial exhibition to encourage people to be wealth creators?
