First World War: Empire and Commonwealth Troops - Question for Short Debate (4 Jun 2018)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Lexden on introducing this debate and share his hope that the Government will arrange to commemorate the contribution of Empire and Commonwealth troops during the First World War. It is estimated that about one-third of the troops raised by Britain were from what was then the Empire: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India, the...

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

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I support the amendment so ably moved by the noble Lord, Lord Lisvane. In my view, it strikes the right balance between the role of the Government and that of this House and its committees in the scrutiny of statutory instruments. Amendment 71, so ably moved by the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey, follows the recommendations made by the royal commission that was chaired by my noble friend...

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2018)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, it is a pleasure and a privilege to follow the noble Lord, Lord Carter of Coles. I support the resolution so eloquently moved by the Leader of the House. I entirely endorse what has been said by noble friend Lady Stowell, to which I have very little to add other than to salute the work that she has done on this matter together with others who served on the Joint Committee. I found...

House of Lords: Lord Speaker’s Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (19 Dec 2017)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Burns, and the members of the Lord Speaker’s committee on the report, and support its recommendations. In the absence of a written constitution, this House and the other place are reliant for our effectiveness on broadly shared values, trust and conventions. Hitherto, this reliance has nearly always served us well and, for the proposals in...

Zimbabwe - Question for Short Debate (7 Dec 2017)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, the change of regime is an opportunity for the lives of Zimbabweans, in Zimbabwe and in exile, to be transformed. The British Government can help with governance reform, with our Chinese friends and others. There is no greater opportunity than now to revive trade and investment opportunities, and to that end our voice in the International Monetary Fund will be very important. I...

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (16 Mar 2017)

Lord Goodlad: My noble friend bracketed my raising the Zimbabwe pensioners with the uprating of the overseas pensions referred to by the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin. They are completely separate issues. Can she say something in response to what I said?

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (16 Mar 2017)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin, who has done so much to entertain and inspire young people in this country and no doubt in other parts of the Commonwealth. I very much share her concern about the overseas pensioners to whom she referred and about whom I was greatly concerned when I was in Australia. She is quite right that the Government now have...

House of Lords: Size - Motion to Resolve (Continued) (5 Dec 2016)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, it is a great privilege to follow the wise remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Low of Dalston. I join other noble Lords in congratulating the Government on making time for this debate today and my noble friend Lord Cormack on securing it and on the content of his remarks, which, as usual, I find myself in substantial agreement with. I salute, too, the work of the Campaign for an...

House of Lords Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Oct 2016)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I join my noble friend Lord Strathclyde in warmly congratulating my noble friend Lord Elton on bringing this Bill before the House. I offer both him and the Bill my warm support. My noble friend mentioned the surgeon who told a bewildered patient that they needed some form of surgery. My late father was a doctor. He told me that when faced with a particularly bewildering diagnosis,...

Electoral Fraud - Question (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, why do we not do what the Australians have happily done very successfully for 90 years and make voting compulsory as a civic duty?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I welcome most warmly the contents of the gracious Speech, and I congratulate the Government. I was glad to see the commitment to secure the long-term future of Britain’s nuclear deterrent and to invest in Britain’s Armed Forces. In my view, our military capabilities have been reduced to the absolute minimum consistent with maintaining our national security. I understand that...

Strathclyde Review — Motion to Take Note (13 Jan 2016)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend Lord Strathclyde on his report. Its recommendations on secondary legislation are in line with those of the royal commission, chaired by my noble friend Lord Wakeham, and those of the report of the Leader’s Group on Working Practices, which I chaired—option 3 in my noble friend’s report—to create a new procedure. I...

Mental Health — Motion to Take Note (15 Jan 2015)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Tyler on securing this debate and on her and very wise words. I speak from the perspective of one whose home for the first 14 years of my life was a mental illness hospital: the Lawn in Lincoln—founded by the Willis family in 1819, following the successful treatment of King George III—of which my late father was for many years the medical...

Hong Kong — Question for Short Debate (16 Oct 2014)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Luce, on initiating this timely debate and on his wise speech, with all of which I concur. I speak with what I hope is the degree of diffidence appropriate to one who does not live in Hong Kong and who has viewed recent developments there from afar. I was one of the noble Lord’s successors as Minister of State at the FCO responsible for Hong...

Medical Innovation Bill [HL] — Second Reading (27 Jun 2014)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend Lord Saatchi on his achievement in securing Second Reading for his Bill and on his advocacy today, and I wish the Bill a successful passage. I also applaud the Government’s role, in which I believe the Minister played a significant part. The potential implications of the Bill’s enactment are impossible to predict with...

United Kingdom and China — Motion to Take Note (7 Nov 2013)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend Lord Dobbs on his perceptive speech introducing our debate. He has given us much food for thought. I also endorse the tributes paid to my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe on her eloquent maiden speech, and I, too, hope that we shall hear more from her in future. My noble friend Lord Dobbs rightly dwelt on the pace of change...

Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (Armed Forces) (Amendment) Order 2012 — Motion of Regret (5 Dec 2012)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, very briefly, I share the concerns of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Scott, about the order, which was commented on by the Select Committee on secondary legislation. This area of the law was thoroughly looked into some years ago by your Lordships' Constitution Committee. The recommendations of the committee, contained in the second report of the 2008-09 Session entitled...

House of Lords: Working Practices — Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2012)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Filkin, on this timely debate and on his very wide-ranging speech on a subject which, as he said, is sufficiently important to your Lordships' House to attract an attendance today on all sides. I shall perforce be brief. We spend the majority of our time on the scrutiny of legislation. Our role is quite different from that of the other place. We...

House of Lords: Working Practices — Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2012)

Lord Goodlad: I speak in the hope that my noble friend will take seriously the points being made in the debate-or the two that I have had time to raise.

House of Lords: Working Practices — Motion to Take Note (27 Jun 2011)

Lord Goodlad: My Lords, it was a great privilege to chair the group. On its behalf, I express gratitude for the kind words which have been uttered. We agree with Adlai Stevenson that flattery is harmless provided it is not inhaled. The shadows are lengthening and I shall be very brief. We were extremely grateful to all noble Lords who gave written evidence, which is summarised in the reports. We were...
