National Stroke Strategy — Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I should preface my remarks with a declaration: I am the patron of Herefordshire Headway, which provides services to adults who have a head injury or an acquired brain injury. It does marvellous work through its day centre, offering a range of activities and therapies led by specialists. I warmly endorse the view of the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, that there needs to be a...

Apprenticeships — Motion to Take Note (15 Oct 2015)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, I join the chorus of congratulation to the noble Baroness, Lady Prosser, for initiating this debate. It is a subject of huge social and economic importance, and the debate is very timely. I start with a declaration of interest, or at least of a connection: my wife was an apprentice with Baker Perkins, a company mainly involved in heavy engineering. In the interests of marital...

Proposed Changes to the Standing Orders of the House of Commons — Motion (21 Jul 2015)

It is simply that one of the possible solutions to that problem has been presented in terms of...

Security: State Procession — Question ( 9 Jul 2015)

Lord Lisvane: My Lords, as someone who sought to buy the Curtis Green building for parliamentary use rather than as a luxury hotel, I commend the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, for raising this issue. It is extremely important that a full formal CPNI security assessment is given to Ministers in the case of each building. I ask the Minister to bear in mind that many of these buildings are connected...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) ( 1 Jun 2015)

Lord Lisvane: (Maiden Speech) My Lords, it is an honour—although one laced with trepidation—to address your Lordships’ House for the first time. I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Dunlop, and the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leeds on displaying absolutely none of the trepidation which I now feel. I am the third Clerk of the House of Commons to have the privilege of membership of your...
