Lord Stratford: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many primary care trusts place psychiatric care patients in private care facilities.

Terrorism Bill (13 Dec 2005)

Lord Stratford: I am listening very carefully to the noble Lord. What would persuade him that up to 90 days was justifiable?

Terrorism Bill (13 Dec 2005)

Lord Stratford: The noble and learned Lord, Lord Fraser, said that he had heard no justification at all for a period of detention of up to 90 days. All I can say is that he could not have listened to the noble Lord, Lord Imbert. The noble and learned Lord may have been in the Chamber but he clearly did not have his ears open. We heard what the noble Lord, Lord Imbert, said. No one in this Chamber or in the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Healthcare Commission: Enforcement Notices (8 Dec 2005)

Lord Stratford: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many enforcement notices have been issued by the Healthcare Commission to private operators of psychiatric hospitals in each of the past three years.

Ministerial Code (6 Dec 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, this is a great big fuss over very little. We have probably the least corrupt political process in the entire world. The more that people try to score cheap political points, however, the more we undermine public confidence in the whole political system.

Terrorism Bill (21 Nov 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, has an eminent, albeit difficult, position. But it is not as uncomfortable as that of another prominent Liberal, who was said to be sitting on the fence waiting for the iron to enter his soul. This is a Bill everyone wishes was unnecessary. Unfortunately, it is a response to the growing dangers we face in our everyday lives. Whether it is an appropriate...

Avian Flu (17 Nov 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Byford, for facilitating this debate. I cannot underline and emphasise enough the importance of the point she made at the beginning of her remarks; that is, the need to do something about the exaggeration and the hysteria that surrounds the current outbreak of avian flu. Much of the blame lies with the absurd stories we have been regaled with in the...

Identity Cards (7 Nov 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, I personally believe that identity cards should be compulsory. Have the Government worked out a figure for how much it would cost if cards were compulsory and were issued free?

Avian Flu (26 Oct 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, it really is about time the trade in exotic birds was stopped altogether. Many of these birds are caught in the wild. Frankly, if this gives us a reason to stop it altogether there is obviously a silver cloud. Secondly, does the Minister accept that there is a degree of hysteria about this? I have seen figures in newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Express suggesting that...

Avian Flu (26 Oct 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, I was not referring to Ministers.

Liverpool City Council (Prohibition of Smoking in Places of Work) Bill [HL] (20 Jul 2005)

Lord Stratford: My Lords, may I say what a great pleasure it is to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Williams? As she was speaking, I remembered that I never really thanked her properly for coming to speak in my parliamentary campaign in Watford in 1979. Regrettably, that did not do me any good, but at least I perished in good company. During my 22 years in the other place, I made around 1,400 speeches and...

Adjournment (Easter) (24 Mar 2005)

Mr Tony Banks: indicated dissent.

Adjournment (Easter) (24 Mar 2005)

Mr Tony Banks: The hon. Member for North Cornwall (Mr. Tyler) is absolutely right—I have worked with him on a number of all-party initiatives, particularly on animal welfare, demonstrating that we are at our best when we work together. This is probably the last occasion on which I will make a contribution in this Chamber. As ever, I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. Having decided to stand down...

Business of the House (24 Mar 2005)

Mr Tony Banks: When we return from the Easter recess, would my right hon. Friend organise a short debate on the problems facing English football? I draw his attention my early-day motion 914 on the need to protect referees: [That this House notes with regret and concern the growing tendency for football players to seek to intimidate and influence the decision-making of match officials during the course of a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Art Market (21 Mar 2005)

Mr Tony Banks: Droit de suite may be a good idea in principle, but would it not be better for the levy thus raised to be spent on promoting the arts generally, rather than going to the families of artists—some of whom will take ages to trace, and may be incredibly wealthy themselves?

Written Answers — Treasury: Primate Seizure (Customs and Excise) (10 Feb 2005)
