Recent appearances

  • Localism Bill: Report (2nd Day) 7 Sep 2011

    The noble Baroness is making a very interesting speech, but she will talk in acronyms. She talks about HBs, DCLGs and so on, and some of the more modest of us are not quite certain what she is talking about.
  • Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011: Motion to Approve 6 Sep 2011

    Perhaps I may interrupt my noble friend for a moment as one who intended to make a speech but was unable to do so because the noble Baroness got up too quickly. Does my noble friend agree that it is in fact impossible to have equality between people? You can have equalities of opportunity for people to use, but you cannot possibly say that two people are equal.
  • Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011: Motion to Approve 6 Sep 2011

    With the greatest respect, the noble Lord is doing more than making an intervention; he is making another speech.
