Royal Yacht - Question (26 Oct 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, my noble friend said that we have no requirement for a ship. That may technically be correct, but it sends a somewhat negative message. Like my noble friend Lord Forsyth, I had the privilege of entertaining on the royal yacht European businessmen who were attracted to the prospect of doing business with this country as a consequence of being there. That this country is “open for...

Airport Capacity - Statement (25 Oct 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, on behalf of the many people who for years have believed that there needed to be further airport expansion in the south-east, will my noble friend convey to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Transport our thanks for the fact not just that they have made a clear decision, but that they recognised the urgency of making that decision and got on with it? Secondly, I hope...

Disability: Football Stadiums - Question (13 Oct 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, will my noble friend undertake that, given the importance of this issue, if that January report shows any clubs not complying with the commitment, legal action will be taken against them and/or against the Premier League to demonstrate how important this issue is and how seriously it should be taken?

Airports: London - Question (11 Oct 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, can my noble friend tell us whether, when the Government make their decision shortly, they will take into account the likelihood of legal challenge?

Airports: London - Question (5 Sep 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Spicer asked when the Government’s decision will be announced. I wonder whether my noble friend could answer that Question.

Southern Rail: Service Cuts - Question (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, reverting to my noble friend’s original Answer, what makes him believe that normal service will soon be renewed?

European Council: March 2016 — Statement (21 Mar 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, I suspect I am not the only one in your Lordships’ House who is grateful to the Prime Minister for having reminded us of the decisions of the two previous EU Council meetings and the number of people who were going to be helped as a result of those decisions and for telling us of the paltry number of people who actually have been helped. Given that stark contrast, does my noble...

Pharmacies: Funding — Question (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords—

Pharmacies: Funding — Question (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, talking about the services which pharmacies provide, when do the Government plan seriously to regulate and inspect pharmacies with a view to making sure that their patient record-keeping and consultation facilities for patients are appropriate to the high standards of patient confidentiality which we insist on in every other aspect of the NHS?

Trade Union Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (23 Feb 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, I, too, want to look briefly at Amendment 69. When the noble Lord, Lord Collins of Highbury, introduced these amendments, he did so, if he does not mind my saying so, rather well—at least for the bits that he talked about, but it is the bit that he did not talk about that I want to draw to his attention. I will read to your Lordships from new subsection (1A)(c) proposed in...

Schools: Food Nutrition Standards — Question (11 Feb 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, in his first response my noble friend talked about new guidelines coming in last year that reduced the amounts of fat, salt and sugar in school diets. Could he tell the House what percentage reductions occurred in each of those three categories?

National Health Service — Motion to Take Note (14 Jan 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, the wording of our debate in part says, “the ability of the National Health Service to meet present … demands”. I think we all agree that when it meets present demands, it does so in an exemplary way. The problem is that it does not meet all demands and the failure to meet demands is increasing. I picked four important points at random and was interested that, at least in...

Trade Union Bill: Second Reading (11 Jan 2016)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, bearing in mind that this is a debate, I will start by referring to a comment made, in an earlier speech, by the noble Lord, Lord Monks, who gave us the benefit of his very considerable and balanced experience. Slipped in amid all that erudition and common sense was just the slightest implication that maybe all of us on this side of the House do not much like trade unions—or maybe...

Airport Security — Question (17 Dec 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, of course the Government are right not to share security information, but can my noble friend tell your Lordships what arrangements are in place to brief airlines that fly into international airports on any findings that might be helpful to them in determining whether they should continue those flights?

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust — Statement (10 Dec 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, after all the investigations, inquiries and reviews relating to the terrible events at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, your Lordships’ House was told that no one was to blame. Is it the Minister’s initial instinct that after these shocking new facts have been analysed, reviewed, examined and so on, the House will again be told that no one was to blame?

Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design — Question (3 Dec 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, will my noble friend accept that the Government’s commitment to art and design is admirable, as is their commitment to the autonomy of universities?

Channel Tunnel: Migrants — Question (1 Dec 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: In an earlier reply, my noble friend said that, over a period of time, the very good work done by the Government and the French had thwarted 174 organised attempts to use the Channel Tunnel. Can he tell your Lordships’ House how many organised attempts were not thwarted over the same period?

HS2 — Question (22 Oct 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, my noble friend just talked about enhancing HS2 links across the country—links which are much needed, and the sooner the better. Can he tell your Lordships’ House how he intends to strengthen the links between HS2 and HS1?

Airports: London — Question (13 Oct 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, can my noble friend tell your Lordships’ House how the date of the announcement about Heathrow will be influenced by the date of next year’s mayoral elections in London?

Economy — Motion to Take Note (10 Sep 2015)

Lord Mawhinney: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Haskel, on his introduction of this subject for debate. I welcome the wording that he chose about economies after austerity. I will follow his lead. He did not try to define austerity or when “after austerity” might happen. Unlike others who are better qualified than me, I will not involve myself in deep, economic theory. I will simply...
