Brexit: Creative Sector - Question (20 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, is the Minister aware that, notwithstanding his replies and the squalid stitch-up taking place down the Corridor, we are on our way to disaster if we continue down the road to Brexit?

Nicaragua: Human Rights - Question (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, following reports of further deaths of those protesting against President Ortega, what representations they are making to the Government of Nicaragua to ensure that the human rights of those demonstrating against the President are protected.

Nicaragua: Human Rights - Question (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: I am grateful to the Minister for that helpful Answer. Is she aware that, having rejoiced at the Sandinista victory over the dictator Somoza in 1979 and having condemned the US intervention in Nicaragua by funding the Contras, it grieves me and my colleagues to read the report by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights of the human rights violations by the Government of Nicaragua,...

International Relations - Membership Motion (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I wonder whether I can add something as a fellow rebel. The Order Paper is inaccurate. It is wrong to say that the noble Lord, Lord Balfe, resigned. We have just heard that he did not, so the Motion is not correct. I address the Senior Deputy Speaker because he is moving the Motion. As the House heard last week, I have the greatest respect for him, sitting with him as I do on the...

International Relations - Membership Motion (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: I am not clear, although I normally understand exactly what the noble Lord, Lord McFall, says. Is he saying he is going to take this Motion back and reconsider this appointment to the International Relations Committee? Is that going back to the committee?

Procedure - Motion to Agree (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I support the Motion and think this is a very good report. I was at the meeting that took place and supported all the recommendations. I also commend the Senior Deputy Speaker for the way in which he conducted the meeting and for his sympathetic consideration of all the points raised.

Brexit Transition: European Parliament Membership - Question (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Will the Minister join me in commending the Electoral Commission for making provision for elections to the European Parliament, should we still remain as members?

Ffos-y-fran Opencast Coal Mine - Question (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, the Minister will recall that I am a great enthusiast for devolution. However, can I point out that he is not correct in what he said? My understanding, as a long-time supporter and student of devolution, is that the UK Government would not normally intervene. That word “normally” is in the legislation. Perhaps the Minister could think again.

Rail Timetabling - Statement (4 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: What about the Lake District?

Peru: Visa Requirements - Question (4 Jun 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, notwithstanding Peru’s lucky victory over Scotland at football last week, I support everything that the noble Baroness, Lady Coussins, said. I was astonished on a recent visit to New Zealand to find that some visitors from New Zealand, of all places, still require visas. What is the Minister doing about that?

Railways: Disabled Passengers - Question (24 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, does the Minister remember that when he took the legislation through the House of Commons to privatise rail services, the late, great Robert Adley said it would properly be described as the poll tax on wheels. Has that not proved correct?

UK-EU Security Partnership - Question (17 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I want to add to my question to the Minister from last week. Has he been able to check yet whether he can accept a wager from me that we will still be in the European Union at the end of March next year? If he can, in the light of the story on the front page of the Daily Telegraph today, I am willing to raise the stake to £100.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: The noble Lord is very well-meaning in what he suggests. However, is he aware that Mike Russell actually agreed to the same proposal from the United Kingdom Government that the Welsh Government agreed to? He went along with that and then went back up to Scotland and was told by Nicola Sturgeon that it would not be approved because she did not like it. She runs it: not Mike Russell. How on...

Historic Cathedrals - Question (14 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I, too, welcome support of any kind from the Government for English cathedrals of any denomination. But, given recent threats from down the other end of this building, what is the Minister going to do to ensure the preservation of other great national treasures such as the noble Lord, Lord Cormack?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (6th Day) (8 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Before the noble Baroness sits down, she is absolutely right, but is she aware that one of the DUP Peers who spoke at length in the debate last week has an Irish passport?

Brexit: Logistics Industry - Question (8 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, perhaps I can come to the assistance of the Liberal Democrats, who seem to be at sixes and sevens over whether or not we are going to leave the European Union. I am certain that we will not leave the European Union. Last week we had a Question on the dangers of gambling, particularly internet gambling, but I am prepared to make a wager with the Minister of at least £10—I...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Come on. You are better than this.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Hear, hear!
