    How the amphibious helicopter lift capability provided by HMS Ocean will be provided after she is paid off – Lord West of Spithead. Oral questions
  • British Servicemen: Vexatious Law Suits - Question 19 Oct 2016

    My Lords, can the noble Earl say why ex-military are treated in a different way in Northern Ireland when it comes to investigation of historic crimes? Surely there is a requirement to look on an equal basis at all these cases, be it a legacy case that includes the military or some other person within Northern Ireland. Why are they treated differently?
  • Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (1st Day) 11 Oct 2016

    My Lords, to add to that, I too am most impressed with the package the Government have come up with. It is really impressive. It shows a great willingness to compromise but does not compromise our security at all. I also pass my good wishes to the noble Earl on the 219th anniversary of his ancestor raising the siege of Gibraltar.
