Smoking-Related Diseases - Question for Short Debate (14 Sep 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, by way of prologue, I should explain that this debate was originally initiated not by me but by the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham. His new ministerial responsibilities—I warmly congratulate him on his appointment—preclude him from speaking this evening, but I am delighted to see him in his place on the Government Front Bench, and I know that his lifetime commitment to the...

Committee on the Equality Act 2010 and Disability Report - Motion to Take Note (6 Sep 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, it has been almost as great a privilege to listen to this debate as it was to serve on the Select Committee. The debate has demonstrated the extraordinary range of experience that Members of your Lordships’ House bring to the subject of disability. I thank all noble Lords who have spoken and particularly those who have spoken from their own life experiences and brought that to...

Crown Dependencies - Question (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: As regards the Channel Islands, I declare an interest as chairman of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. The Minister enjoys a very high reputation in the islands and is known to be a friend of them. I know how much trouble the disagreement caused by Defra over the Guernsey fisheries agreement caused him and the MoJ last year. Putting that to one side and looking ahead to the post-EU...

Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 - Motion to Regret (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I would be a little more convinced if the tobacco industry took its responsibilities seriously in countries where the restrictions on smoking were not the same as in the western democracies. The attempt to promote, advertise and sponsor tobacco smoking, particularly in the Far East, is utterly deplorable. The industry views the whole the tobacco and vaping market in a very cynical...

Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 - Motion to Regret (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: It is very interesting, because in countries which take tobacco cessation seriously, the tobacco industry is switching to vaping, as it knows its traditional market is largely lost. Only last month, in this country, it attempted to undermine public health by trying to overturn the standardised packaging regulations. It cannot be trusted. Finally, I share my noble friend Lord Hunt’s call for...

Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016 - Motion to Regret (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness for referring to me and the part that a number of us played in making the United Kingdom a leader in attempting to reduce the prevalence of tobacco smoking. As your Lordships will recall, it was this House which passed the amendments to the then Children and Families Bill which led to the UK being the first country in Europe to introduce...

Euro 2016: Fan Violence - Statement (14 Jun 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, the Minister is of course right to say that the decision as to whether the 2018 World Cup should be staged in Russia is a matter for FIFA. However, do the Government have a view on the desirability of that, should the suspended disqualification of Russia from this tournament turn into an actual disqualification because there is further trouble in France?

Hillsborough - Statement (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I may be the only member of your Lordships’ House who was present at Hillsborough 27 years ago. I subsequently gave evidence to Lord Justice Taylor’s inquiry and to the Hillsborough Independent Panel. I join all other Members in commending both the Statement and the contributions from all sides of the Chamber today. This House has matched the mood perfectly. I think that the...

Wheelchair Users - Question (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, can the Minister indicate how much progress his honourable friend the Minister for Disabled People has made in persuading Britain’s sports governing bodies, particularly the football authorities, to make sure that all their stadia comply with the accessibility guidelines, which are of course of particular importance to wheelchair users? I declare an interest as a vice-president of...

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how they will ensure that the fifth principle contained in the report of the Smith Commission that the package of powers agreed through the Smith Commission process “should not cause detriment to the UK as a whole nor any of its constituent parts” will be complied with when railway policing is devolved.

Smith Commission Principles: Railway Policing - Question (18 Apr 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, that is all very well but this is a Question about the no-detriment principle in the Smith commission report. The British Transport Police Authority made it clear in its evidence to the Public Audit Committee of the Scottish Parliament that the safety and security of railway policing in England and Wales could be endangered and its costs increased if that force no longer had a role...

Smith Commission Principles: Railway Policing - Question (18 Apr 2016)

High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill - Second Reading (14 Apr 2016)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, it is a real pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Fowler. His modesty prevented him from describing perhaps his greatest moment as Minister for Transport, which was to resist, quite early on in his term in office, a very crazy plan from the British Railways Board and his Department for Transport officials to embark on a programme of closures of rural railway lines. I think about...
