Trade Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 5 (20 Mar 2019)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I do not wish to detain your Lordships unnecessarily, but in a previous life I spent three years as the Clerk of Legislation at the north end of this building. One of the duties of the Clerk of Legislation is to read through the Explanatory Notes and approve them for every government Bill. A key part of that process is ensuring that there is no advocacy or advertising of the merits...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to welcome the new noble Baroness to the Front Bench and I echo the welcome offered by other noble Lords. I am only sorry that the first task that has fallen to her is, as described by my noble and learned friend Lord Judge, a hospital pass. I prefer to see it as a sort of legislative grenade with the pin out. As my noble friend Lord Patel mentioned, I am a...

Brexit: Further Referendum - Question for Short Debate (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I can be extremely brief, as perhaps I should be since noble Lords have heard quite enough from me this afternoon. I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Tyler, for his expertise and leadership on these issues. It was Emerson who said: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds”. I plead guilty to consistency, foolish or otherwise. Noble Lords may recall—indeed,...

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I will not attempt to respond to or summarise the debate in any way, as that role has been so admirably performed by the Minister. I will just say two things. First, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in what has been an excellent debate. Secondly, I say to the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths of Burry Port, that I think the hostelry in Lisvane he has in mind is the Black...

Brexit: Stability of the Union - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I begin with a word of thanks to those Cross-Bench colleagues who voted for the Motion to be debated. I am delighted that the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, is to reply to the debate for the Government. In view of our happy co-operation in former lives, I hope that I may refer to him as my noble friend on this occasion. I see from the speakers’ list that I am allotted 15...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners on Remand: West Midlands (11 Jul 2018)

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners on Remand: West Midlands ( 4 Jul 2018)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government what consultation they undertook before deciding to relocate all remand cases from the West Mercia Police area to Kidderminster.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, it would be extremely churlish of me not to acknowledge the movement which the Government have undertaken on these issues, particularly including your Lordships’ House in the sifting process. During Commons consideration of the amendments, the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, deployed a rather familiar set of arguments, if I may put it in that way. Quoting the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments (18 Jun 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble and learned Lord for setting out the Government’s case with such precision and care. I am very grateful, too, to the number of noble Lords who voted in substantial majorities for the three amendments covered by the three Motions in this group. The Minister and his colleagues have been rather critical of what I might call the family of amendments...

UK Territorial Seas: Incidents - Question (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, can the noble Earl say a word or two about fishery protection and the continuing funded role of the JMOCC? Three-hundred thousand square miles of sea will need to be patrolled after we leave the European Union.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) ( 8 May 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, this amendment is consequential on Amendment 70, agreed by your Lordships a short time ago. I beg to move. Amendment 77 agreed. Amendments 77ZA to 77D not moved.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) ( 8 May 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister and to noble Lords who have taken part in this debate. From the remarks of the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon, it is clearly an opportunity for your Lordships to gain insight into that world of fascination and excitement which is statutory instrument procedure. My noble friend Lord Bilimoria was much too kind to me when he credited me with...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) ( 8 May 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I can be brief because the arguments on a Westminster sifting mechanism were deployed in Committee. Amendment 70 continues the theme of constraints which should be imposed by Parliament on powers delegated to Ministers. For many of the sweeping regulation-making powers, the Government would have a choice under the Bill as to whether the affirmative or negative procedure is to be...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, Amendment 53 in this group is in my name and those of the noble Baronesses, Lady Hayter of Kentish Town and Lady Wheatcroft, the noble Lord, Lord Tyler, and—most recently and much to be welcomed—the noble Lord, Lord Callanan. In Committee I had occasion to speak about the legislative Damascus road so I am very glad that in respect of this issue at least the Minister has added...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, as this amendment is consequential on Amendment 31, which was agreed by your Lordships on 25 April, I beg to move it formally. Amendment 86 agreed.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, this amendment is also consequential to Amendment 31. I beg to move. Amendment 87 agreed. Consideration on Report adjourned. House adjourned at 12.07 am.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (3rd Day) (25 Apr 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this debate—especially for their concision and brevity. I am in a position to help the noble Lord, Lord Skelmersdale, as I apprehended that his concern was that if the amendment were agreed, Clause 7(1) would be without a subject. But that subsection begins with the words: “A Minister of the Crown”— so it is quite clear who...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (3rd Day) (25 Apr 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, in moving Amendment 31 I shall speak to the other three amendments in the group, which are to the same purpose and are also all tabled in the names of the noble Lords, Lord Tyler and Lord Cormack, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Goldsmith. The first point to make is that the powers to make regulations proposed to be given to Ministers in Clause 7 and Clause 8—although I am...
