Brexit: The Customs Challenge (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Apr 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: As one living near the Irish border, I realise that it has two sides. Sometimes I get the impression that people in London do not realise this. Can the Minister confirm that Her Majesty’s Government have decided that there will not be any infrastructure on the United Kingdom side of the border? On the Irish side, it is a matter for the European Commission. Has the Commission yet confirmed...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Mozambique: Storms (1 Apr 2019)

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) (No. 2) Bill - Committee: Amendment 1 (19 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: One of the problems with the Bill, which has already been underlined during the debate, and which the Minister has been honest enough to state himself, is that it is wrong to link rates—which is council tax in England—with this heating scheme. They are two totally separate subjects and should not be in one Bill. Should the Bill be rejected, would it then be possible to introduce urgent...

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) (No. 2) Bill - Committee: Amendment 1 (19 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I support the amendments and, as I said during Second Reading, I feel inclined to oppose the Government on this Bill. The position we are in has arisen due to people having been somewhat misled, as the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay, said. They were given guarantees by government that are now not being honoured. People feel very aggrieved about that, and not just farmers....

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (12 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I will speak on the Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) (No. 2) Bill in particular. I declare an interest, as shown in the register, as the owner of two non-domestic properties in the cities of Armagh and Belfast and the chairman of a company that owns 14 properties in different towns across Northern Ireland. The issue of rates is, therefore, important to me and those who...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Fisheries: Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland (11 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether fishing vessels from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland have reciprocal access to each other's inshore waters; what representations they have made to that government to restore the provisions of the Voisinage Agreement; whether Northern Irish fishing boats have been recently seized by authorities in the Republic of Ireland; and what assessment...

Local Elections (Northern Ireland) (Election Expenses) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: During this debate, reference has been made to the 11 super-councils that were created five years ago in Northern Ireland. The idea was that reducing the number of councils from 26 to 11 would reduce costs in local government administration. That may or may not have happened. The order is welcome, of course, because it provides greater opportunity to those who represent wider, larger rural...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Bill - Report (1 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: Does the noble Lord accept that in Northern Ireland, Government after Government since 1921 have financially supported and encouraged the teaching of Irish, the creation of Irish language schools and everything possible to support the Irish language? What problem does the noble Lord see with what is being done about the Irish language in Northern Ireland?

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Bill - Report (1 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, we are debating a subject which is very sensitive in Northern Ireland. The background is that the people of Northern Ireland largely have faith, which is not a common thing in other parts of the United Kingdom. The largest faith is the Roman Catholic Church; the second largest is the Presbyterian Church, which is of Scottish background. Both those Churches—the two largest in...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Bill - Report (1 Mar 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: Does the noble Lord understand what the phrase, “equal status for the Irish language” means? Because I do not. Less than 1% of the people of Northern Ireland show an interest in the Irish language, so equal with what? More people speak Polish, Chinese or Lithuanian. Irish is very much a minimal language in Northern Ireland.

Leaving the European Union - Statement (26 Feb 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: Can the Government assure the people of Northern Ireland that the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will continue, and that there will be no new border created between Great Britain and Northern Ireland?

Flybmi - Statement (18 Feb 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: I welcome the Statement by the Minister. I thank the Government for the speed with which they have attended to the problem in Londonderry and the north-west of Northern Ireland. Airlines depend on passengers. The special support that the Government are giving the route from the City of Derry Airport to London is very much appreciated, not only in Northern Ireland but also in the Republic of...

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, the Northern Ireland Assembly approved same-sex marriage but it was rejected by the procedures of the Northern Ireland Assembly by a petition of concern. When we drew up the Belfast agreement and the petition of concern was created, it was intended to be used so that one political party would not impose its will on another on issues such as economics, social policy or...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Statement (31 Jan 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: In the context of this draft Bill, can the Minister confirm that she welcomes contributions from noble Lords who want direct rule in Northern Ireland?

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: European Parliament Members (11 Jan 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the UK will still have MEPs if the UK does not leave the EU.

Exiting the European Union - Statement (10 Dec 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, the Statement correctly identifies the backstop as one of the main issues. Does the Minister recall the opinion of the Attorney-General that Great Britain is essentially treated as a third country by Northern Ireland for goods passing from GB into NI? This means that regular checks would have to take place between Northern Ireland and Great Britain, normally at airports or ports....

Written Answers — Treasury: Overseas Loans: Republic of Ireland (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: To ask Her Majesty's Government how much they have loaned to the Republic of Ireland during the past decade; and of those loans, (1) what capital has been repaid, and (2) how much interest has been received.
