Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (20 Nov 2013)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lord Marlesford’s amendment, which largely reflects a Private Member’s Bill that the House discussed a while ago. It seems an eminently sensible measure and I look forward to a similarly positive and supportive reply from the Minister. My Amendment 22AA, which is grouped with that of my noble friend, deals with a different issue at the other end of the...

Olympic Games 2012: Disruption to Businesses — Question (26 Mar 2012)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that helpful Answer. Given that businesses in central London-here I have an interest of sorts to declare-have been officially advised to plan for severe disruption to their operations because of traffic congestion as a result of the Olympic route network and the congested public transport system, can he assure the House that everything possible will be...

Aviation — Question for Short Debate (13 Oct 2011)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I too declare an interest as a private pilot and aircraft owner. I do not have quite the degree of technical or operational skill as my noble friend Lord Rotherwick, who I thank for bringing the debate forward this afternoon. Noble Lords should know that not only is his Lordship a distinguished pilot, he also creates aeroplanes with his bare hands: a lot of clinking and clanking...

Planning — Debate (13 Oct 2011)

Viscount Goschen: I am not sure I said there was no need for housing development. I said I felt there was an almost infinite demand and that to try to meet that substantial demand was probably optimistic.

Planning — Debate (13 Oct 2011)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, there are a great many planning experts in this House, many of whom demonstrated their great skills and experience during proceedings on the Localism Bill over many days. Many of its amendments and debates focus on areas that are closely related to the current consultation on the national policy planning framework. We have heard an impassioned speech from the noble Lord, Lord...

Intellectual Assets: Crime — Question (2 Nov 2010)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that reassuring and informative Answer. Does she accept that the protection of proprietary, valuable technology is absolutely critical to companies' ability, and indeed willingness, to invest in long-term research and development, and indeed to our ability as a country to attract inward investment?

Women: Public Bodies and Listed Companies — Question (15 Jul 2010)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I declare an interest as a head hunter. Does the Minister accept that the recruitment industry takes this issue extremely seriously and that it is standing by to partner government and industry in seeking to ensure the proper representation of women on boards?

Aviation: Regulatory Framework — Question (30 Mar 2010)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I declare an interest of sorts as a humble private pilot. Will the Secretary of State take full account of the views of general aviation in considering the responses to the Pilling proposals? General aviation is a very important part of the overall aviation sector. It is the framework from which new pilots come in to the industry. It is very important that the regulator of that...

Government Statistics — Question for Short Debate (1 Jun 2009)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, a visitor to your Lordships' House this evening could conclude that approximately 15 per cent of parliamentary time is spent debating matters of humanism, which just illustrates that too small a sample can sometimes be misleading. It was only two years ago that this House was engaged in debating the Bill that set up the new statistics authority. I well remember the noble Lord, Lord...

House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Viscount Goschen: I received a terrible shock during the Minister's speech this afternoon to be told that I was not going to live beyond the age of 94. I am not sure what information the Government were drawing on, but that is official and from the Front Bench.

House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Viscount Goschen: I shall put down a Written Question to get a more precise answer so that I can plan ahead, but 2060 is the date when proceedings will be of less interest to me. I share the sentiments of my noble friend Lord Caithness who I felt spoke very powerfully about the deal that was entered into solemnly that resulted in the settlement that we have and the need for a properly thought-through stage 2....

House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Viscount Goschen: My noble friend intervened on my remarks, and I could not agree with her more that we need to get to the substance of the Bill. So why do we need this new clause? Why do we need this manuscript amendment? What is its purpose other than to create an artificial decision for the House?

House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Viscount Goschen: I stand corrected. "An amendment submitted at the last possible moment before becoming a manuscript amendment" would be clearer.
