Scotland Act 1998: Section 35 Power - Statement (18 Jan 2023)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, this is a very difficult issue to get your head around. In a previous incarnation, I was a non-executive director of the Scottish Prison Service. I saw the terrible vulnerability of women in prison, many of whom had been abused since being babies. They wanted to be in prison because they felt safe there. In this morning’s Scottish edition of the Times was the very distressing case...

Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill - Second Reading (9 Jan 2023)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to his position. It is quite exciting to do your first Bill before any House and he has got off to a good start. I used to have a colleague in the other place who, at the end of a speech, would often say “it says here” because that way they could get out of any problems that had been created. I used to get notes from the civil servants saying, “Please...

Clean Energy: Investment - Question (14 Dec 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Does the noble Lord agree that cleaning up energy is just as important as clean energy? As he knows, I have an interest in carbon capture and storage. So many times over the past few years has the investment community been marched up to the top of the hill and then disbanded. Does he agree with me that a strong signal needs to be given to that community that carbon capture, utilisation and...

Energy Supplies - Question (12 Oct 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, many of the issues that we are discussing today could be covered in the Energy Bill. What has happened to it?

Energy Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 43 (7 Sep 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I thank the Minister very much for that very full response. The noble Baroness, Lady Worthington, raised some interesting points that I was not aware of. It would be useful to explore those further as we get towards Report. However, I am content to beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 43 withdrawn. Amendments 44 to 47 not moved. Clause 61 agreed. Clause 62: Direction to offer to...

Energy Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 40 (7 Sep 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Given that explanation, I am prepared to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 40 withdrawn.

Energy Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 43 (7 Sep 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I will speak to Amendments 43, 45, 48 and 58. Again, they are trying to cope with some of the wide definitions that are contained within the Bill. I am most impressed with the fact that the Government have defined a UK Low Carbon Hydrogen Standard, which was updated in July of this year. It includes guidance and a calculator tool for hydrogen producers to use for greenhouse gas emissions...

Energy Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 40 (7 Sep 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Thank you very much. This is another one on future-proofing. The amendment says, “leave out ‘function on any’ and insert ‘relevant function on any relevant’” person. The reason is that these delegation powers could be interpreted as being broad and non-specific, and it would be some comfort to insert this language to ensure it is clear that the Bill is referring only to the powers...

Energy Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 39 (7 Sep 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I support Amendment 49 and the introduction given by my noble friend. First, I apologise for not being around on Monday; being here was outwith my control. But I watched the debate, and my noble friend Lord Foulkes did a wonderful job. I first did a double act with him in the September of 1974, when we educated the Scottish public about devolution. Since that point, I have been lost...

Australia Free Trade Agreement - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register. I am involved with a number of Australia-facing organisations, not least as a non-executive director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Having said that, I do not look at the situation of our trade deal with Australia through rose-tinted spectacles—I will come to that later. I pay tribute to our chair and our previous chair, the...

Working Practices (International Agreements Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 May 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I will not delay the House for long, because I think a lot of the key arguments have been made, not least by my noble friends Lady Hayter and Lady Donaghy, and by the noble Lord, Lord Lansley. This debate has come about because of a sense of frustration with the Government; the aim of the International Agreements Committee is the practical and effective scrutiny of forthcoming...

Trade Talks with India, Greenland and Israel - Question (9 Mar 2022)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am grateful for this opportunity and I am not as kind as my noble friend Lady Hayter, so I will be churlish. Can we return to the issue of parliamentary scrutiny? The letter that my noble friend alludes to is about trade treaties and is not much wider than that. Is the Minister aware that the diplomatic missions of the countries with which we are seeking to strike agreements watch...

UK–Commonwealth Trading Relationship - Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2021)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Howell, on securing this debate. We do not talk about the Commonwealth enough. It is often an afterthought and now that we are looking for trading partners, it is up there in our priorities. The noble Lord mentioned leading Commonwealth figures, but did not mention one of our own number, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, my noble and learned...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Second Reading (20 Jan 2021)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it is indeed unfortunate that the Government did not reach across this House in constructing this piece of legislation, as my noble friend Lord Touhig said. It has been clear this afternoon that there is a range of respect for, and also knowledge of, our armed services that should have been in the mix as this Bill was put together. I was pretty shocked when I read the remarks of the...

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the potential use of (1) carbon capture, (2) carbon storage, and (3) hydrogen, to decarbonise (a) heating, (b) transport, and (c) heavy industry.

BBC and Public Service Broadcasting - Motion to Take Note (5 Mar 2020)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Young on securing this debate at such an important time. It is interesting to look around the House to see which Benches are busiest. I suspect that a lot of noble Lords on the other side of the House have not sought to come in because they agree with the position that is adopted by this debate. My noble friend Lord Puttnam made a powerful speech...
