Shipping: Tax Revenue — Question (18 Jan 2012)

Lord Prescott: The Minister is aware that this is a successful tax. It increased the British fleet from 4 million tonnes to 18 million tonnes and that is an important factor.

Shipping: Tax Revenue — Question (18 Jan 2012)

Lord Prescott: I am concerned about the recent transfer of the Cunard steamship company, which enjoys this fiscal arrangement, to Bermuda. It has retained the tax but been removed from the statutory requirement to have a captain or crew of a certain kind on its ships. That is unacceptable.

Shipping: Tax Revenue — Question (18 Jan 2012)

Lord Prescott: The loss of the "Concordia" reminds us of the importance of having a captain and safe crew. The "Concordia" is owned by the American company that owns these ships. There are two standards on cruise liners, which is totally unacceptable.

Lord Prescott: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the appalling level of these arrests and prosecutions reflects badly on the British press and was made possible only by the use of no-win no-cost litigation by those who were complainants, including me. Why are this Government in their legislation on legal aid quite prepared to meet the unanimous demands of the press that we reduce their costs in such...

Green Agenda — Motion to Take Note (12 Jan 2012)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness on getting this debate on climate change, particularly as we did not get a Statement after the Durban negotiations. I understand the reasons and cast no blame, but it is important that we continue to debate this. Funnily enough, there may be more public consensus on this big issue than on the economy.

Public Service Pensions — Statement (20 Dec 2011)

Lord Prescott: My Lords, having listened to the Minister claiming the support of the noble Lord, Lord Hutton-the architect of the scheme-for his interpretation, and then having listened to my noble friend Lord Eatwell give a different interpretation, I am all the more sorry that the noble Lord, Lord Hutton, is not here to give his interpretation. I wish to ask the Minister a question, as in 2008 I...
