Commonwealth Parliamentary Association — Debate (8 Sep 2011)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Hooper has done the House and the Commonwealth a great service by initiating this debate.

In my...

Environment: Drought — Question (14 Jun 2011)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, have the Government given any thought to the possibility of a national water grid?

Armed Forces: Post-service Welfare — Debate (27 Jan 2011)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I, too, am most grateful to my noble friend Lord King for raising this important issue.

I have various interests to declare. I was a member...

Nimrod Review — Statement (16 Dec 2009)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I apologise for arriving a little late after the Minister began the Statement-which of course I had read, having seen it in the Printed Paper Office earlier.

One of the organisations whose work I have...

Broads Authority Bill: Third Reading (11 Jun 2009)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I cannot follow my noble friend in his eloquence about the view from anywhere from the Norfolk Broads. As I live in Aberdeenshire, it is far too far away to see. However, I have visited them in the past—and I reflected that when I spoke at Second Reading. Like my noble friend, I can be fairly brief. I acknowledge the degree of movement and the degree of scrutiny that the movement...

Health Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 May 2009)
