Ministerial Code - Question for Short Debate (12 Mar 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I shall speak on the code of conduct for special advisers and the treatment of Sonia Khan. Paragraph 5 of the code says: “But special advisers must not … exercise any power in relation to the management of any part of the Civil Service, except in relation to another special adviser”. I suggest that we delete the final words of that quote from the Code and insert the words...

Historic Sexual Offences: Investigations - Question (4 Mar 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the management of investigations into historic sexual offences.

Historic Sexual Offences: Investigations - Question (4 Mar 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, as the Carl Beech affair now draws to a close, is not the real scandal in its management the fact that decent, honourable people, who have and had given a lifetime of public service to their country, have had their reputations destroyed by the headline-grabbing accusations of ambitious self-publicists and irresponsible policemen, who believed and promoted the lies of a fantasist,...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Statement (3 Mar 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I listened very carefully to the Minister’s comments on behavioural change and discouragement, but there is nothing of any substance in this Statement on the provision of early information that could affect personal conduct—which is very important on this—particularly for the elderly, apart from hand-washing and tissue cover when coughing. The public want detailed information...

Police and Crime Commissioner Elections (Amendment) Order - Motion to Approve (26 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I welcome the noble Lord to his place. I have watched him on the Back Benches over a number of years and wondered when his day would come; it has finally come and I congratulate him. Article 2(3) of the order “adds to that list of matters reasonably incurred expenditure by or on behalf of a disabled candidate that is reasonably attributable to the candidate’s disability.” I...

Wuhan Coronavirus - Statement (26 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I have half a lung following surgery for a tumour and COPD on the residual lobes. I am over 70 and therefore form part of the group of thousands—potentially hundreds of thousands—who are at particular risk from this virus. When the virus reaches London in conditions of a pandemic, and perhaps even before, I am likely to withdraw from the House for a period of time. For...

Flooding Compensation - Question (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, if buildings are to be built on flood plains, why are they then excluded from Flood Re?

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: Perhaps I can answer the Minister’s question. She asked what can be done. Very simply—if she has listened to the debate she will know—confiscate any drone that enters one of these zones.

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: The noble Viscount referred to seizure as against confiscation. Perhaps we should simply substitute confiscation for seizure.

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I only wish that the noble Lord, Lord Tebbit, had been here during earlier proceedings on the Bill because we dealt with the issues that he referred to. I wonder whether Ministers have considered the 22nd report of the Commons Select Committee, entitled Commercial and Recreational Drone Use in the UK, and its recommendation. I want to read that recommendation out because it is at...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 28 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: The Minister referred to BALPA. Is she saying that BALPA has expressed no reservations whatever about the police powers?

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 28 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: So it has no reservations.

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: I shall say just one or two words. The Minister has offered to write us a letter. It is not a letter we want. We want it in the law. The letter will interpret the law in a way that she believes will satisfy the concerns we have expressed. I am worried about the guy out there with a drone. He is not going to read the law. He wants very simple principles established that he can understand. In...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: Does that include all drones—commercial and recreational?

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: Why should a drone that goes into one of these restricted zones, which could potentially cause huge damage, not be confiscated?

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 25 (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, this too is a probing amendment, as it does not fully capture the intention behind the issue that I raised during Second Reading on confiscation of equipment. The Minister at the time led me to believe that she would seek to answer in correspondence the issue that I raised, but the letter that Members have received does not refer to it. I do not blame her; perhaps she might deal...

Wuhan Coronavirus - Statement (11 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I do not want to overreact, but this is a very dangerous condition, and prevention starts at home. The average age in this House is 70. We therefore form part of the most vulnerable group, the group most susceptible to viral infections. Bearing in mind the pressures on Members to attend, should not the House authorities be preparing advice for us on what action should be taken to...

Flood Response - Statement (10 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, I would like to take the Minister back to the question just asked by the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, about Flood Re. He is not being drawn on three critical areas that she mentioned: private rented property cover, commercial buildings cover and post-2009 developments. These are critical areas that have to be considered by the review. The Minister could at least give us an...

Operation Midland - Question (3 Feb 2020)

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, in addition to Carl Beech, two other people who have not been named publicly lied to the Midland inquiry. Why were those two people not named and did either of them make accusations against Lord Janner that were unjustified allegations?
