Railway Franchises (11 Mar 2004)

Special Advisers (11 Mar 2004)

Government Advertising: National Press (3 Mar 2004)

Written Answers — House of Lords: Regulations: Cost to Business (1 Mar 2004)

Viscount Goschen: asked Her Majesty's Government: What they estimate to be the cost to business of new regulations introduced in each year since 1997; and how those figures are calculated.

Regulation (25 Feb 2004)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I was particularly struck during the course of this debate by the importance of your Lordships' House as a pre-emptive filter for unintended consequences. My mind went back to legislation with which the Minister and I were involved—the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. It came from the House of Commons with a glowing report from that Chamber, but had it been enacted as it...

Zimbabwe (28 Jan 2004)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, this House has certainly not shirked its duty to keep Zimbabwe on the political agenda. Just because there is no one obvious solution that is being urged on Ministers, that should not mean that Back-Benchers from all sides of the House should not continue to press the Government to explain what pressure they are applying on various African leaders, on Mr Mugabe himself, on our...

Railways (19 Jan 2004)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords—

"Big Conversation" Initiative (3 Dec 2003)

Viscount Goschen: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether there is any government involvement in the "Big Conversation" initiative.

"Big Conversation" Initiative (3 Dec 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, in that case, why are Government Ministers praying in aid this initiative from the Dispatch Box? That happened on Monday in connection with the smoking issue. It gave it an aura of government respectability; whereas we know that this is in fact merely a cynical exercise designed to produce helpful answers. Does the noble Baroness agree with the description by the noble Lord, Lord...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Intrusive Surveillance) Order 2003 (13 Nov 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord for giving way. Could the orders not be amended or brought back with additional restrictions not only in terms of the four columns detailing the bodies that can acquire data at the moment but also to restrict the type of data, not just the purpose for which they can obtain them, which is an existing restriction? I am talking about an...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Intrusive Surveillance) Order 2003 (13 Nov 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, those noble Lords fresh to the debate, who did not attend before lunch, will have missed the extraordinary spectacle of the noble Baroness, Lady Hollis, arguing vigorously against government legislation—that is, the orders regarding the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act being considered today—being applied to her own department. A number of noble Lords in the Chamber seemed...

Zimbabwe: Aid (10 Nov 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, perhaps I may take the noble Baroness back to the question posed by my noble friend Lord Howell. Is she satisfied that the South African Government are doing everything possible to apply pressure on Mugabe's regime to bring it to an immediate close?

Zimbabwe: UK Policy (28 Oct 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, how would the noble Baroness assess the effectiveness of the policies which Her Majesty's Government have been pursuing in terms of influencing the behaviour of the ZANU-PF regime?

Anti-social Behaviour Bill (17 Sep 2003)

Viscount Goschen: The Minister gave statistics about the increasing number of offences concerning air weapons. However, the argument is about young people and air guns. Can she separate the statistics that she provided to indicate those above 17 and those below 17?

Zimbabwe (15 Jul 2003)

Viscount Goschen: asked Her Majesty's Government: What additional support they would be able to give to Zimbabwe, in the event of a return to democracy in that country.

Zimbabwe (15 Jul 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that helpful Answer. Does she agree that it is now time to take that argument forward to consider what will happen after Mugabe goes, as he undoubtedly will, and, I hope, soon? Is there not a lot of value to be had in sending a strong message of hope to the people of Zimbabwe that western countries are standing by to help rebuild that country when democracy...

Network Rail: Performance (30 Jun 2003)

Viscount Goschen: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the performance of Network Rail is satisfactory.

Network Rail: Performance (30 Jun 2003)

Viscount Goschen: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that reply, although I could not work out whether he responded with a "yes" or a "no"; that is, whether or not he believes that Network Rail's performance is satisfactory. Perhaps he could tell the House. Does the noble Lord agree with the view of his own rail regulator that the explosion of costs at Network Rail is a direct function of the fact that no...
