European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Second Reading (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: Does the noble Lord recall that the noble Lord, Lord King of Lothbury, is acknowledged to have been rather slow to spot the financial crisis in 2007 and 2008?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Second Reading (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, the Brexit debate has increasingly reminded me of the film that shot James Dean to fame, “Rebel Without a Cause”. Noble Lords who are old enough will remember that the high spot of the film is James Dean and his arch rival driving their cars towards a cliff edge. The idea is to be the one with the most nerve, and to jump out of the car as near to the cliff edge as possible. For...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: I have a question to put to the noble Lord, not to the House. He seems to be developing an argument in which there are two classes of Bill that come from the House of Commons. He argues that this House should consider whether a Bill passed by the House of Commons is one which is appropriate for this House to consider or not. Can I be clear that this is the doctrine he is now trying to argue?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, I wish I thought that the Members sitting around the noble Lord who has just spoken would take any notice of his message but, having listened for more than four hours to a set of procedural issues that have nothing to do with the Bill we are supposed to be discussing today, I suggest to the House that we put the question.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: I do. Ayes 229, Noes 77.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: Is the noble Baroness not aware that we have had extensive conversations about this? Yesterday, the House of Commons managed to amend its procedures so that it could complete consideration of the Bill within four hours. They expect us to deal with the Bill with due expedition. The majority of the House of Commons voted for this Bill. We are now getting to the point where this House is being...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, I think the mood of the House is that we should move as expeditiously as possible through these amendments to the Motion, so that we can consider the substance of the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill as quickly as possible. I therefore urge the House that the Question now be put on this particular Motion.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, does the noble Lord accept that the Prime Minister has accepted that her Government cannot get her legislation on Brexit through the House of Commons and needs to consult the rest of that House on alternative approaches?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Glucosamine (1 Apr 2019)

Lord Warner: To ask Her Majesty's Government which body decided that 1,500mg glucosamine tablets should be provided on prescription only; when this decision was taken; for what reason the change from being available from a pharmacist to being prescription only was made; and what evidence underlay that decision.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: I thought that we were discussing the statutory instrument, but this is rapidly turning into an angst and confessional session for the Conservative Party. I wonder whether we might move rather more promptly to the Front Bench to reply on behalf of the Government.

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: Can the noble Lord explain to the House why, after she was requested to seek an extension, the Prime Minister decided of her own motion on the date of 30 June without, as far as I can see, any consultation with the EU? On the question of why the EU did or did not agree with her, it was because it was not prepared for that and so chose an alternative date to the one she offered. I thought...

Human Medicines (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: The Minister does not need to convince me; she needs to convince the industry. It is simply not convinced by the changes that have been introduced. These are the companies earning their living in this sector day to day. The Government have a lot of work to do to try to convince the industry that they have not damaged the exclusivity period for many of these biotech companies. They are the...

Human Medicines (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, I want to start by providing the House with a few vital statistics on these three life sciences statutory instruments. On my bathroom scales this morning, they weighed in at a little over 2 kilograms. There are 416 pages of statutory instrument and 132 pages of explanatory memorandum, including impact assessments. There are now just 22 days for those working in the life sciences...

European Qualifications (Health and Social Care Professions) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, can the noble Baroness give me some answers to the points I raised about guidance being given in the event of no deal and exit on 29 March? First, how are the Government going to communicate that guidance to all the interested parties in the time available? Secondly, I asked about the status of these SIs in the event that the Article 50 period is extended beyond 29 March but there...

European Qualifications (Health and Social Care Professions) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, it is a positive delight to follow the noble Lord, Lord Deben, as I have done on a number of occasions in the past few months in debates on other SIs which have been considered in Grand Committee. The one thing I would say about the noble Lord is that he has been masterly in the consistent way in which he has expressed himself. I do not altogether share his high assessment of...

Brexit: Import of Radioisotopes - Private Notice Question (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords—

Brexit: Import of Radioisotopes - Private Notice Question (7 Mar 2019)

Lord Warner: My Lords, to what extent does the Minister consider that patients will be put at much greater risk in a no-deal scenario if a large number of oncologists up and down the country take the view that they cannot rely on the supply of medical isotopes and therefore start a programme of delaying access to an assessment and treatment by them? Does she consider that the Government cannot give these...
