Hong Kong — Question (25 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, bearing in mind that the noble Baroness’s question refers to democracy in the region, will the Minister take the opportunity to pay tribute to the people of Taiwan, who change their Governments regularly through the ballot box, and whose parliamentary system is very close to our own, unlike that of mainland China? I declare an interest as co-chair of the British-Taiwanese...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: I must advise the Committee that if Amendment 5 is agreed to, it is not possible to call Amendments 7 to 11 for reason of pre-emption. Amendment 6 (to Amendment 5) Moved by Lord Mawhinney 6: Clause 1, line 13, at end insert— “(iii) has made a second written declaration to that effect in the form of the Schedule before two independent witnesses, one of whom must be a solicitor in practice...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (7 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: I must advise the Committee that if Amendment 4 is agreed, I shall be unable to call Amendments 7 to 11 for reasons of pre-emption. Amendment 4 Moved by Lord Pannick 4: Clause 1, page 1, line 4, leave out subsection (2) and insert— “(2) Subsection (1) applies only if the High Court (Family Division), by order, confirms that it is satisfied that the person— (a) has a voluntary, clear,...

Airports: London — Question (4 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, in view of the improbability of any new runway capacity being constructed in the south-east during the lifetime of most Members of your Lordships’ House, does the Minister not agree that this is the time to look very seriously at the role of regional airports such as Birmingham, which will be only 47 minutes from central London by High Speed 2?

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (3 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I naturally accept the Minister’s point. Nobody is a greater defender of the BTP’s role in policing our railways than I am. For her to say that none of this was undertaken during the years of the previous Government is a bit unfair to those of us who have been raising the issue of the role and jurisdiction of the BTP since, in my case, 2001. Putting that to one side, the officer...

Infrastructure Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (3 Nov 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, in moving Amendment 53A, which is in my name and the names of the noble Lords, Lord Ramsbotham, Lord Bradshaw and Lord Jenkin of Roding, who I am delighted to see in his place at this late hour, I shall speak also to the other amendments in this group, which were tabled by the Minister and by the same group of four of us. I start by expressing my very genuine thanks to the Minister...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I, too, have added my name to the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey, because I am very happy to be a co-sponsor of his Private Member’s Bill to secure the pardon for Alan Turing, which fortunately needed to make no further progress in Parliament because the Government granted that pardon. I do not want to say any more, other than that I agreed with every word that the...

Railways: High Speed 3 — Question (21 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, while it is generally understood that the Chancellor’s announcement about HS3 came as a complete surprise to the Department for Transport, is the noble Baroness aware that the Government’s commitment to the extension of high speed rail is very welcome and can she confirm that no country in the world that has embarked on a programme of high speed rail construction has regretted it?

Sport: Accessible Stadia Guidance — Question (14 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, and declare an interest as vice-president of the charity, Level Playing Field.

Sport: Accessible Stadia Guidance — Question (14 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: Does the Minister agree that, although some sports are making a real effort, the situation with professional football is, as the Minister for Disabled People said when he wrote to all professional clubs in April, “woefully inadequate”, when it was revealed that only three clubs in the Premier League, the richest league in the world, comply with the requirements for the number of spaces...

Bishop of Guildford: Appointment — Question (3 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, perhaps I may ask the Minister a slightly broader question about public appointments which have been held up. Is he aware that since last Monday, the Science Museum Group—I declare an interest as a trustee—has been without a chairman, even though the process to reappoint the excellent Dr Douglas Gurr started as long ago as last summer? Numerous other appointments are awaiting...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Football (2 Jul 2014)

Written Answers — House of Lords: World War I (2 Jul 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many bodies of those killed in the First World War are currently unburied; and what are their plans for their interment.

First World War — Motion to Take Note (25 Jun 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, it is a privilege to follow that very moving speech by the noble Lord, Lord Jenkin of Roding. He gave us all cause for thought, as indeed did my noble friend Lord Graham of Edmonton just a few moments ago. I do not think I have heard a speech of that power from such a senior Member of your Lordships’ House for a very long time and I certainly look forward to him being able to be...

First World War — Motion to Take Note (25 Jun 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: It is a promise. I congratulate the Minister not just on his excellent opening speech but on the part he played in persuading the usual channels that we should have this debate today. The number of speakers indicates how much interest there is in your Lordships’ House in the centenary of the outbreak of World War I. This interest is reflected in the country as a whole, where the range of...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (9 Jun 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, my brief contribution to this debate picks up on the points made by the noble Lords, Lord Patel and Lord Ribeiro, on the introduction of standardised packaging for cigarettes and tobacco products. Your Lordships will recall that tobacco control clauses were added to what is now the Children and Families Act as a result of initiatives taken by a cross-party group of Members of this...

European Union: Justice and Home Affairs — Motion to Take Note (8 May 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: The Question is that this Motion be agreed to.

Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Committee — Motion to Take Note (19 Mar 2014)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, in common with every other speaker in this debate, I express my appreciation to my noble friend Lord Harris of Haringey not only for securing the debate but for the brilliant way in which he led the Select Committee. It was a pleasure to serve on it and I, too, thank our excellent clerk and special advisers who ensured that we covered the ground thoroughly and delivered the report...
