Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Third Reading: Motion (15 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, the Bill will return to the Commons substantially improved. I, too, pay tribute to all who have helped to make it so, including the Minister, the noble Lord, Lord True, by accepting and endorsing the important change originally promoted by the noble Lords, Lord Young of Cookham and Lord Cormack. The Minister explicitly accepted that it is the right and responsibility of your...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 15 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I am very grateful to all Members who contributed to this short debate, particularly the Minister—and I will come back to him in a moment. In the meantime, I hope that all Members of your Lordships’ House recognise that the vote we undertook, less than an hour ago, to extend the tolerance either side of the quota norm to 7.5% actually makes it much easier for us to recognise...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 15 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I wish to speak to Amendment 15 in my name. Again, I am delighted to have the support of the noble Lord, Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, who has consistently endorsed my plea that the especially distinct identity of Cornwall should be recognised in this legislation. I am also pleased to have the support of my noble friend Lord Teverson, who has given great public service to Cornwall....

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 12 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, our own amendment in this group is Amendment 14 in my name and that of my noble friend Lord Rennard, but I will refer also to others in this group which offer slightly different solutions to the fundamental problem with this Bill that all the signatories agree is so apparent. As Members of your Lordships’ House will have observed, we have modified our suggested solution in the...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 6 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Hayward, has brought some very important, practical questions to your Lordships’ House this afternoon. I hope the Minister will be able to reply to them. The noble Lord speaks with a great deal of experience and expertise on these issues. It is significant that he has done the research to spot some potential difficulties. In the meantime, I am full of...

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (8 Oct 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I agree very much with what the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, has just said about the emphasis on people’s interests rather than those of politicians, and I shall come back to that in a moment. In the interests of brevity, I wish merely to reiterate our support for these two amendments which have been clearly explained by my noble friend Lord Rennard, and to emphasise our approach to...

Agriculture Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 89A (22 Sep 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I have listened with great interest to the noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, whose expertise in oenology is certainly far more tasteful than mine. I am devoted to the excellent products of the Camel Valley Vineyard in my erstwhile constituency, although when it comes to imports, my family are more broadminded. He has raised an extremely important point that does not just apply...

House of Lords: Number of Members - Question (16 Sep 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, does the Minister accept that, following the huge majority for the 2012 House of Lords Reform Bill which Sir George Young, as he then was, secured at Second Reading, this House could by now be well on the way to being a 450-strong senate with a democratic mandate? Further, will he acknowledge that it was only the silly party games played by the then Labour leadership with...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 33 (9 Sep 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I agree entirely with the noble Lord, not least in his admiration for my noble friend Lady Hamwee, who has indeed undertaken a marathon on this Bill today. By contrast, mine will be a quick sprint. We are anxious to ensure with this amendment that we can get some urgent clarification on an extremely important issue relating to citizenship. There are obvious echoes from the previous...

Representation of the People (Electoral Registers Publication Date) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (3 Sep 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, shortly I will have some welcoming comments to add to the substantial points made by my noble friends Lord Wallace of Saltaire and Lord Rennard and other Members of your Lordships’ House, but first I register a double disappointment with the Minister’s introduction to this short debate. It was an obvious opportunity for him to give the Government’s outline response to the...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Cabinet Office: Mass Media (29 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many media officer posts there were in each Government Department in July (1) 2019, and (2) 2020; and what plans they have to (a) increase, and (b) reduce, the number of those posts in the next 12 months.

Parliamentary Constituencies Bill - Second Reading (27 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, it is not my usual source for a wise text, but I shall begin with a quote from the Conservative manifesto of December 2019—significantly not repeated by the Minister this afternoon. We do believe that we should be “making sure that every vote counts the same—a cornerstone of democracy.” However, we remind the Government that any variance in the number of electors in UK...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 236A (23 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, I confine my remarks to Amendment 263 in my name and those of my noble and learned friend Lord Wallace, my noble friend Lord Bruce and the noble Lord, Lord Holmes. This new clause seeks to secure exactly equal protection for traditional speciality food and drink products, for which the UK is famous and which have such economic benefits for particular areas, as is currently enjoyed...

Intelligence and Security Committee: Russia Report - Private Notice Question (22 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, in the final 72 hours before the EU referendum in June 2016 there was extensive, disguised, unregulated and targeted digital campaign messaging. Ministers ignored this. Why? This occurred again last year, with shadowy Brexit-supporting groups spending hundreds of thousands of pounds and then disappearing. Ministers ignored this. Why? Given the detailed recommendations of the...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 140 (21 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, we are all anxious to make progress, so I shall be brief. These two amendments from my noble friend Lord Greaves, which I strongly support, are deceptively modest but very significant in the context of this Bill. As has been said, the concept of public goods has been a persistent and welcome thread through the early sections of the Bill. Some Members may think that it should have...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 73 (16 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, all Members have emphasised just how significant and timely this group of amendments is. I particularly support Amendments 272 and 274. The noble Earl, Lord Caithness, referred to last night’s shock report from the Met Office-led investigation into the effect of manmade carbon emissions in the Arctic and the effect, therefore, on UK weather. That should be a very loud alarm call....

House of Lords: Relocation - Private Notice Question (14 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, given the various attempts by No. 10 to emasculate the scrutiny work of your Lordships’ House, can we take it that this proposal to banish us to York is simply a threat to cut off the House from MPs, Ministers, Cabinet, civil servants and the rest, and to weaken our constitutional role? Would it not be much less disruptive to send the whole Cabinet Office to York? That would not...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Local Government: Elections (10 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to change the rights of EU citizens resident in the UK to stand and vote in local elections before the local government elections in England and Wales in 2021.

Agriculture Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (7 Jul 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, the noble Earl, Lord Dundee, when opening the debate, observed that Clause 1 gives Ministers powers, not duties, so the financial assistance objectives of the Bill are only permissive and thus inevitably subject to the economic context in which it all becomes operational. It is all very well trying to allocate the most appropriate slices of the financial cake, as all amendments in...

House of Lords: Size - Question (23 Jun 2020)

Lord Tyler: My Lords, does the Senior Deputy Speaker agree that the central problem lies not in our House but in No. 10? Has any notification been received from Messrs Johnson and Cummings that they are prepared to stick with the promise made by the previous Prime Minister to abide by the suggestions and recommendations of the Burns committee, which were approved by the House?
