Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL] — Second Reading (8 Jun 2015)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Heseltine. His words are often beguiling but you have to look at the small print. He has an excellent reputation for urban development in different parts of the United Kingdom, for which I give him credit. He was the man who welcomed me as a Back-Bencher on my maiden speech, so we have both been around for a bit. I recall that...

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2015)

Lord Prescott: Given the circumstances I have explained, I will go through the practice of withdrawing the amendment at the moment. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 57B withdrawn. Clause 94: Extent Amendment 57C Moved by Lord Wallace of Saltaire 57C: Clause 94, page 73, line 17, after “(10),” insert “(Preventing retaliatory eviction), (Further exemptions to section...

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2015)

Lord Prescott: I certainly agree with that. I have sat here all night and I now know more about parking, and God knows what. I am talking about the lives of people and the safety of our ships. I have to remind the Minister that we are an island nation. I would not have had to repeat what the Minister knows but the only reason that I have taken longer is that I think a noble Lord here in the House said that...

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2015)

Lord Prescott: It was not.

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2015)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, is it my impression that the Minister is not here to reply to his letter and my debate in Committee about the safety of passengers and seafarers on vessels? This is a clause about safety on ships and inquiries, and I will seek to show that the “Marchioness” disaster was due to the negligence of the Department of Transport in dealing with that sad loss of 51 people. I...

Scotland: Devolution — Motion to Take Note (29 Oct 2014)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, in the 45 years that I have been a Member of this Parliament, I have been involved in the argument for decentralisation and devolution and strongly believe in them. I have taken part in every referendum campaign in Scotland and Wales and, indeed, in the north-east, where I introduced and failed to get my Assembly. All of them, after a first refusal, were voted for a short time later...

Construction Industry — Motion to Take Note (23 Oct 2014)

Lord Prescott: So everything is okay, then?

Construction Industry — Motion to Take Note (23 Oct 2014)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, this is a very important debate and I congratulate my noble friend Lord O’Neill on getting it. There is no doubt that there are many things to be said on this subject and that there is insufficient time to go into them all. I want to concentrate my remarks on what is called the affordable home. It is all right talking about raising money in different ways, but what if people...

Parliamentary Privilege (Defamation) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (27 Jun 2014)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I offer my congratulations to the noble, Lord Lester, for his Parliamentary Privilege (Defamation) Bill, which I support on the balance of the arguments. As the noble Lord pointed out, it arises from a dispute between a Member of Parliament in the other House and a paper, the Guardian. Therefore, this conflict raises a number of points in my mind about parliamentary privilege. The...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (11 Jun 2014)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I wish to address my remarks to one line in the Queen’s Speech, which states: “My Ministers will also champion efforts to secure a global agreement on climate change”. That statement is further defined in an advice note on the Bill, which refers to achieving, “an international, legally binding, rules based agreement”. I want to talk about that because...

Press Regulation — Statement (8 Oct 2013)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, the House will not be surprised that the Privy Council has rejected the PressBoF charter simply because it is not supported by all the industry or compliant with Leveson’s requirements. However, is the Minister aware that that caused a further delay? Why was it given preference over Parliament’s agreed charter? That delay was seven months and there is now another...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Press Regulation (29 Aug 2013)

Lord Prescott: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Gardiner of Kimble on 25 July (WA 235), whether they will now arrange for the list of members to be published in the Official Report; and if not, why not.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Press Regulation (25 Jul 2013)

Written Answers — House of Lords: Press Regulation (25 Jul 2013)

Lord Prescott: To ask Her Majesty’s Government who are the members of the Privy Council considering the draft Royal Charter on press regulation.

Press Regulation — Question (11 Jul 2013)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, the agenda, the rules of decisions, the timing and attendance are determined by Cabinet Members. They have decided to give the press charter greater priority. Is the Minister aware that there is division on the press charter as a number of the papers do not support it? It is not consistent with Leveson’s request for independence—free of government, free of Parliament and...

Lord Prescott: Why?

Government Archives and Official Histories — Question for Short Debate (10 Jul 2013)

Government Archives and Official Histories — Question for Short Debate (10 Jul 2013)

Lord Prescott: I went to the Cabinet Office.

Government Archives and Official Histories — Question for Short Debate (10 Jul 2013)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Rodgers, on raising the matter of government archives and records. I was a bit unsure whether my experience, which I wish to relate to the House, fitted into this, but in his first few words he made clear the kind of chaos that is associated with records and archives. That has been exactly my experience in the past two years, although it does not...
