Newport Wafer Fab - Question ( 6 Dec 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: Is not the real issue whether Newport Wafer Fab, now employing around 450, would have survived without positive Chinese intervention offering long-term viability? If there is real concern over the survival of UK strategic hi-tech, why not revisit lessons learned in the 1970s from Labour’s NEB, the Conservatives’ NEDC and BTG, and the role that Inmos played in the early development of...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Dec 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, what a beautiful, beautiful, moving contribution that was from the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Chelmsford. It is perhaps the finest I have heard in my 20 years as Member of the House. Having read the 16 November Commons debate and the procedural opinion of the Commons authorities on sub judice, I have to say, surely, whether or not the High Court upholds, IMS’s liability...

Rivers and Coastal Waters: Sewage - Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I have a very simple question. I cannot understand how the Government can trumpet the privatisation of water as a success when companies such as United Utilities not only unsettle whole populations by failing to control their assets and stop flooding in Lake District towns such as Keswick, but also, following flooding, seem blind when their sewage plants overflow, fail and then...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 293 (24 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I am not a lawyer, and I have not been briefed to speak; I am only following my instinct. I have not intervened earlier in these proceedings because it is difficult remotely to pick up on the cut and thrust of a debate on issues that command strongly held views. This debate will inevitably draw on strong feelings this evening. I will concentrate my remarks on one amendment,...

House of Lords: Appointments Process - Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords—[Inaudible]—particularly in the original form proposed by the noble Lord, Lord Balfe. He is to be congratulated on taking this initiative. He has truly captured the spirit of public concern about the granting of honours. A review is desperately needed. The reputation of the House is being grossly undermined and gravely damaged by a slow drip of adverse comment in the media on...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, if, after Friday, without the knowledge of management as to vaccination, an unvaccinated person working in a care home knowingly or unknowingly transmits the virus to a care home resident, does not the act of transmission constitute a criminal act under a legal definition of assault? Would not an action, whether civil or criminal, be against the care home worker personally and not...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: Is not the answer to the question asked by my noble friend that the Prime Minister was acting irresponsibly and was wrong?

Covid-19 Vaccinations - Statement ( 8 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords—[Inaudible]—very closely to the wise words of Gordon Brown on the need to distribute surplus vaccines internationally. Vaccine expiry is inexcusable. Gordon has made it his life’s work to defend, promote and support the interests of those in need. The third world is in need; if we fail to meet the challenge then not only it but we will lose out. I urge the Minister to listen to...

Council Tax: Second Homes - Question ( 4 Nov 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, the proliferation of holiday lets in lakeland towns such as Ambleside, Windermere and Keswick is decimating the residential market for locals, particularly the young. The switch from council tax to a reduced business rate system will only aggravate the problem by further incentivising holiday letting. Is not the answer to this wider problem of drift to holiday letting to cap the...

Climate Change: Global Temperatures - Question (27 Oct 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, can we park the constant sideline bickering over China’s CO2 emissions? The discussion pre-COP 26 is unbalanced. We hear endless criticism of China for its 6.5 tonnes per capita emissions record, while there is a deafening silence over the record of the English-speaking world of Australia, Canada and America with their average emissions of 15 tonnes per capita—two and a half...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, that was a very interesting speech from the noble Baroness, Lady Murphy. I have spent a lifetime arguing on life issues: late abortion, embryo research, end-of-life issues generally and, now, there is this Bill. We learn from a lifetime of experience lessons that, in my own case, have been painful and life-changing. That is why I am now at home, a remote participant visiting...

Shortages: Protection for the Vulnerable - Question (20 Oct 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, could we not provide statutory protection of a national scheme for individuals acting as service providers and the needy, whereby individuals—perhaps even neighbours —acting as volunteer service providers, could take on responsibility for arranging appointments and performing other designated life tasks? This would all be under clearly defined model arrangements, thereby...

Inequalities of Region and Place - Motion to Take Note (14 Oct 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: I congratulate my noble friend Lord Liddle on his brilliant contribution today. He is a rich voice in the House on behalf of our county through his membership of Cumbria County Council. He is certainly an eye and ear for many of us on wider Cumbrian issues. In his canter around the course on regional concerns, he has alluded to differential treatment by central government. I want to refer to...

Council Tax - Question (15 Sep 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to reform council tax.

Council Tax - Question (15 Sep 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, the national framework is flawed. How can a band C house in Cumbria, with council taxes of over £1,600 per year, pay more than a £54 million band H luxury house in London’s Mayfair? Surely such discrepancies in the treatment of houses in the north serve only to further reveal how utterly absurd the whole council tax system has become. Is not the concept of a red wall defending...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EEA Nationals (29 Jul 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answers by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 14 July (HL1628 and HL1629), how someone would check whether they had (1) "UK immigration status", and (2) indefinite leave to enter or remain in the UK.

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (29 Jul 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 14 July (HL1628), whether someone (1) born in the EU, (2) with an EU Member State passport, (3) who is married to a UK citizen, and (4) has (a) resided, and (b) been employed, in the UK for over 20 years, including paying taxes or drawing pension payments, would automatically have "UK...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (29 Jul 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 14 July (HL1629), whether someone (1) born in an (a) European Economic Area, or (b) European Free Trade Area, state other than the UK, (2) who carries a non-UK passport, (3) who is married to a UK citizen, and (4) has (a) resided, and (b) been employed, in the UK for over 20 years including...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals (29 Jul 2021)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answers by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 14 July (HL1628 and HL1629), what are the additional rights available to EU, EEA and EFTA nationals under the Citizens’ Rights Agreements that they will not possess if they do not apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.
