Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 (Penalty Points) (Amendment) Order 2016 - Motion to Approve (20 Dec 2016)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I declare an interest as the chairman of the FIA Foundation, one of the biggest international road safety organisations; and for 10 years I chaired the Commission on Global Road Safety, which had a lot to do with establishing in the United Nations the Decade of Action for Road Safety—we are at the midpoint in that. My memory is as long as that of the noble Baroness, Lady Chalker,...

Brexit: Armed Forces and Diplomatic Service - Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2016)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Sterling, on getting this debate today, only two days after an almost historic statement by NATO Foreign Ministers in Brussels on relations between NATO and the EU. In the statement, they said they would, “strengthen our strategic partnership in concrete areas”. That builds very much on the Saint-Malo declaration of 1998, which I played a...

I express one small regret that the committee was...

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

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I start by congratulating two noble Baronesses who have spoken today, one for the last time and one for the first. The noble Baroness, Lady Perry, has a very distinguished record, and it was interesting to note that she apparently once whipped the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, a prospect that most people in Scotland would find very entertaining. My noble friend Lady Jowell made a speech...

European Union: United Kingdom Membership - Question (23 May 2016)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: As one of the signatories to the letter concerned, perhaps I may suggest that the reason why five former Secretaries-General of NATO have taken the unprecedented step of speaking out at this time is the genuine concern that Britain might leave the European Union. As the letter quite clearly says, that would weaken British influence and weaken NATO at the same time. Surely, the Minister will...

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Luce, on securing this debate and on putting CHOGM and the Commonwealth on the Floor of this House.

She is a brilliant choice and will strengthen the...

National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 — Statement (23 Nov 2015)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, although the review is light on detail and timing, it is at least strategic and therefore sets itself apart from the exercise in 2010. In the light of events that took place across the channel 10 days ago, I do not think this is the time for picking holes in the review, although there are a few holes to be picked. It is a time, however, for us to assert to our enemies and...
