European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Lisvane: Before the Minister responds to that point, could he also answer my question? He has sought to make a distinction between a fee and a charge. Could he explain why, at page 761 of the latest edition of Erskine May, there is no distinction made between fees, charges, impositions, contributions or anything else of that sort. The test which is set out there, and is reflected in the current...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I support the amendments in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter of Kentish Town, and I shall speak to Amendment 126, which is in my name and those of my noble and learned friend Lord Judge, my noble friend Lord Pannick and the noble Lord, Lord Tyler. Amendment 126 would bring Clause 8 into line with Clauses 7 and 9. Taxation matters can be dealt with by statutory instrument....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, in moving Amendment 110 I shall speak also to Amendment 135, both of which are also tabled in the names of my noble and learned friend Lord Judge, my noble friend Lord Pannick and the noble Lord, Lord Tyler, who like me is a member of the Delegated Powers Committee. The amendments seek to place controls upon the use of sub-delegation and the creation of tertiary legislation. We have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Young, whose name stands at the head of Amendment 227A. I will add just two points in addition to endorsing the unhappiness of the noble Viscount, Lord Hailsham, partly conveyed through his lead amendment and other amendments in this group. So far, the practicalities of Brexit have been a conversation primarily between government...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I am extremely grateful to the Minister for the detail he went into in his reply, particularly at this late hour. I also pay tribute to him for his customary generosity in being prepared to discuss these matters outside the Chamber. He recommended one weighty tome with which, as a former accounting officer, I am moderately familiar. Perhaps I may recommend to him another weighty...

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve ( 6 Feb 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, I have a bit of form on the subject before us today. It was I who, with the previous Clerk of the Parliaments, in 2012 commissioned the original condition survey which led to the options appraisal and then to the inquiry by the Joint Committee and its excellent report. We commissioned that condition survey together because I felt passionately...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, it is no exaggeration to say that if the Bill before us is enacted without significant amendment, it will represent the largest single peacetime transfer of power from Parliament to the Executive. By comparison, the 1972 Act was a model of restraint. This is not what we were led to believe in the referendum campaign by the use of phrases such as “parliamentary sovereignty”...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Plastics (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government what will be the timing of their consultation on means to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic straws; and when policy proposals are expected to follow.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fisheries: Protection (13 Dec 2017)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Gardiner of Kimble on 15 November (HL3019) regarding the ongoing assessment of the UK's sea-based patrol capability, what assumptions have been made in relation to the total sea area that will need to be patrolled.

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Post Offices: Closures ( 5 Dec 2017)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether funding will be made available to prevent Post Office closures and to maintain the network at its present size.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fisheries: Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Gardiner of Kimble on 3 November (HL2523), when the assessment of sea-based patrol capability is expected to be completed.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Navy: Fisheries ( 3 Nov 2017)

Lord Lisvane: To ask Her Majesty's Government what fishery protection vessels they plan to have in service in UK territorial waters in April 2019.

Clerk of the Parliaments - Retirement of Sir David Beamish KCB (24 Apr 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I have known Sir David Beamish for 42 years. For three years I had the pleasure of being his opposite number in the House of Commons. I pay tribute to him for staying in his job a little longer than I stayed in mine. David’s friendship, courtesy, intellectual horsepower and indomitable cheerful optimism, no matter how adverse the circumstances, made that a delightful and...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Report (Continued) ( 7 Mar 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I am extremely grateful to my noble friend; no doubt she will have her opportunity in a moment. After more than four decades in which I sought to make the most modest of modest contributions to parliamentary effectiveness and reputation, I hope that my credentials as an advocate of parliamentary sovereignty will not be challenged. I am very grateful to my noble friend Lord Pannick...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) ( 1 Mar 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I hope that the noble Viscount will be kind enough to allow me to interpose very briefly. I support the thrust of Amendment 17 and certainly the aim that it seeks to achieve, but I have a couple of questions about the mechanisms that it proposes to do that. It proposes proceeding by resolution of each House. There are two issues. First, what happens if a straightforward approval...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, almost exactly 44 years ago I was in Strasbourg as one of the secretaries of the British delegation to the European Parliament, at the first session of the Parliament that had the United Kingdom as a member state. Bringing up the century as the 100th contributor in this unprecedentedly long list of speakers may have a certain symmetry about it, but it is in no way an outcome that I...

The Process for Triggering Article 50 - Statement (24 Jan 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, would the Minister like to hazard a guess as to whether provision for a post-negotiation referendum would be within the scope of an Article 50 Bill?

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Lisvane: I am very grateful to the Minister for his careful and detailed reply. The noble Lord, Lord Norton, is on to a good point there. If it is an SI Act 1946 statutory instrument, the Act contains the praying procedure. It would indeed put a Minister perhaps in rather a difficult position, having to defend the case, while having, as it were, abrogated responsibility. That is no doubt something...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (23 Jan 2017)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, the amendments in this group which stand in my name and the names of my noble and learned friend Lord Judge, my noble friend Lady O’Neill of Bengarve and the noble Lord, Lord Norton of Louth, do three things. Amendment 265 would require the Secretary of State’s approval before the OfS could make an order authorising the grant of degrees. What is proposed in the Bill would...
