Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (28 Feb 2006)

Viscount Goschen: On Second Reading, I raised the issue that the noble Viscount, Lord Simon, just commented on at the end of his speech. The Bill would remove the right of certain property owners to access their properties because access over roads used as public paths would be extinguished. I remind the Committee that on Second Reading I declared an interest that a member of my family would be in exactly that...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (28 Feb 2006)

Viscount Goschen: I have listened over many years to the noble Lord, Lord Judd, talking about human rights. I very rarely utter the phrase; whereas he has done so on many thousands of occasions. Nevertheless, if the noble Lord was suddenly told that he was unable to access his property, he might feel perhaps that in some way his human rights might have been affected. While I listened with great care to what...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Terrorism Bill (13 Feb 2006)

Viscount Goschen: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will provide a precise chronology of events concerning the receipt of a letter written by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights dated 28 November 2005 including (a) the date on which the letter was first received by a representative of the Government; (b) to which branches of Government that letter was subsequently transmitted, on...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (7 Nov 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I shall limit my remarks to Part 6 of the Bill, which deals with the issue of rights of way. I certainly support the overall thrust of that part—as have all noble Lords who have spoken on the subject—and the way in which the Bill addresses the abuse of quiet rural unmade roads and tracks by motor vehicles, motor cycles and so forth. There is certainly a problem, and I agree that...

Road Safety Bill [HL] (17 Oct 2005)

Viscount Goschen: The noble Lord makes a fine point, but it is not the one I raised. What if the person who declines to provide the information does not have a driving licence? Points cannot be applied to a person who does not have, or has never had, a driving licence. What if that person is a body corporate? How do you put points on the licence of BP or Shell? It must be to an individual. That is the point...

Road Safety Bill [HL] (17 Oct 2005)

Viscount Goschen: I am not quite sure whether the Minister has finished his remarks, but could he answer the point raised by my noble friend Lord Lyell and myself: what if the person who is not disclosing the information is either someone who does not hold the driving licence or a body corporate? While he is about it—the noble Lord talks about the perverse incentive—what if the offence was someone driving...

Road Safety Bill [HL] (17 Oct 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I ask the Minister what sanction is applicable in the case where the registered owner of a vehicle does not hold a driving licence and cannot therefore incur penalty points. It could be someone, for example, whose Rolls-Royce motor car was registered to them, and who had a number of people who could drive it for them. To whom are these points going to be applied in that case?

Road Safety Bill [HL] (4 Jul 2005)

Viscount Goschen: The fact is that the current speed limit of 70 miles an hour is in disrepute because it is so widely ignored by motorists. I note that the percentage of traffic that breaks the 70 miles an hour limit is quoted at 20 per cent. I should have thought that it was much higher, but none the less, let us accept that figure for the moment. The present position is that a law is not enforced. You can...

Inquiries Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for that response. There now seems to be very little between us. I am not wedded to the fact that the point has to be on the face of the Bill. I want to ensure that such an estimate is made. The Minister has made her view clear that an estimate should be made and that she will consult on the best way to do that. On the timetable, I am not wedded to four...

Inquiries Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2005)

Viscount Goschen: moved Amendment No. 7: Page 8, line 12, at end insert ", and must within one month of the setting-up date publish an estimate of the likely cost of the inquiry"

Inquiries Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, during the passage of the Bill, we have returned again and again to the issue of costs. One of my main concerns has been the lack of transparency about the budgeting process. My Amendment No. 7 would require the chairman to publish an estimate of the likely costs of the inquiry within one month of the setting-up date. This would be in line with the conclusion of the House of Commons...

Inquiries Bill [HL] (7 Feb 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, would the noble Baroness therefore be willing to give an undertaking that that budgeting process—whether it occurs under my amendment at the beginning, or shortly after the beginning, of the inquiry, as the Public Accounts Committee recommends—and figure would be published?

Inquiries Bill [HL] (7 Feb 2005)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, my Amendment No. 19 is included in this group; it is an amendment to government Amendment No. 18. It relates to costs, on which we had extensive deliberations in Committee. I attempted to press the Minister for an explanation of what budgeting process goes into the setting up of inquiries. I note that there are provisions in the Bill to get a grip on costs. I note the new provision...

Driving without Insurance (13 Dec 2004)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, what is the average cost of securing third party motor insurance? That might put into context the £200 fixed penalty which he mentioned. I should imagine that it would cost very much more than £200 for most drivers to secure third party insurance. Is there not an incentive for those who do not respect the law to risk the £200 fine rather than splashing out rather more on a legal...

Civil Contingencies Bill (16 Nov 2004)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, in an undated letter to my noble friend Lady Buscombe the noble Baroness said the following: "The Government shares the concerns expressed that emergency powers should not be capable of making substantive amendments, which undermine the constitution of the United Kingdom". I certainly agree with the noble Baroness, but, unfortunately, that is not what the Bill says. We seek to take...
