Metal Theft - Question (26 Jun 2019)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I agree with the Minister that the Scrap Metal Dealers Act has been very successful, not least because it was followed up by Operation Tornado and the activities of the scrap metal task force.

Perhaps the Minister will write to me if there is a...

Catalytic Converter Thefts - Question (20 Jun 2019)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, next Wednesday, I will ask the Government a Question on the theft of metal more generally, not just catalytic converters; I think the noble Lord, Lord Henley, will answer. I was interested in the Minister’s figure relating to the drop in metal theft since the 2013 Act.

Discrimination in Football - Statement (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I listened to the Minister’s Statement from the Gallery of the House of Commons. Like others, I was impressed by the consensus that existed in the House and by the Minister’s enthusiasm and commitment to what she was saying and what she intended to do. I had a sinking feeling of déjà vu, though, because 21 years ago—almost to the day—the Football Task Force, on which I...

The paper in the European Journal of Public Health, to which my Question refers, says that...

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I think I can answer the noble Baroness with a reply to that very last point. I gave her my word during the week that I did not intend to divide the House at the end of the debate for the very reason she said.

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

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, Amendment 1 is in my name and that of my noble friend Lord Collins of Highbury.

Your Lordships will be...
