Social Security (Claims and Payments) Amendment (No. 2) Regulations 2010: Motion of Regret (21 Jun 2010)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I have very little to add to what has been said by my noble friend Lord Lucas. The Merits Committee reported to the House on this matter in April and again following a meeting last week. He has deployed all the considerations that we had in mind with his usual thoroughness. The noble Baroness, Lady Thomas, added to that. We will hear what the noble Lord on the Opposition Front Bench...

Parliamentary Standards Bill: Second Reading (8 Jul 2009)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, the Leader of the House said that I had said that the Bill would be counterproductive in its purpose of reassuring public opinion about Parliament.

International Development — Statement (6 Jul 2009)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I add my voice to those who have welcomed everything that the Minister has said.

The Minister has said everything that one would wish to hear about co-ordination between the Department for...

Surveillance (Constitution Committee Report): Motion to Take Note (19 Jun 2009)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I echo the tribute paid by the noble Baroness, Lady D'Souza, to the late Lord Dahrendorf. He was, if anybody was, truly a citizen of the world. He had almost uniquely wide experience—frequently harsh experience—of the world. All those who knew him over the years, who from time to time thought they were vaguely expert on a particular subject, always found that he was totally up...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Third Reading (8 Jun 2009)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, Amendment 27 stands in my name and that of the noble Lord, Lord Pannick.

Coroners and Justice Bill: Second Reading (18 May 2009)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Patel, I view the Bill with great gravity.

Your Lordships' Select Committee on the Constitution, as mentioned by the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, issued a report on the Bill last...
